We realised that there was little information available on what to expect during an eye test for kids in Singapore. I mean we know about the usual process when you hit primary school but what if your child under the age of 5 needs a test? Going into the unknown can be very scary for the parents especially if you don’t have any info to prep your child with. I had to google for videos of test conducted in the US and prep him based on that. While at the same time hoping that our processes were similar and as child friendly. Continue reading
Watching your child enjoying himself in play or while singing a song has got to be every parent’s favorite moment. But it is especially precious when your child has just suffered a head injury and you haven’t seen him smile or talk much in the last 48 hours.
Our precious moment from yesterday (when the pain decided to leave him alone for a few minutes)
Jah convincing me to follow him so that he could take coins from his Papa’s box to fill his own ‘bank’
Jah singing about his new coin collection – the irony of the last line for his Papa though :p
Enjoy your weekend with your loved ones! 🙂
Thank you everyone for your prayers, concern and love over the last few days! We really appreciate and needed every one of them.
Many of our family and friends have been asking about what has happened to Jah and how he is farely now so I thought I’ll update everyone through our blog.
Jah had a very bad fall on Mon evening. He was basically running out of the toilet after his shower and slipped. His legs were swept from under him and the right side of his head made contact with the ground first. He was fine after that but woke up in the middle of the night complaining of tummy pain (which I believe might have been nausea) and headache (which I initially thought was psychologically from thinking about the fall) Continue reading
I mentioned in an earlier post that one of the key to selecting a holiday destination for our family is to choose somewhere that we have been to before or are familiar with. Phuket and specifically Dewa Phuket was a destination and resort that we have been to twice prior to Jah’s arrival.
We went there as a couple in 2010 and again for our babymoon in mid 2011. The flight time to Phuket from Singapore was a mere hour and 40 minutes and the resort was located on Nai Yang beach which was about a 5 minutes drive away from Phuket International Airport. While this meant that it was far from the hustle and bustle of Patong Beach, we actually preferred a quiet place for relaxation. Continue reading
