Things Jerry Says #10 – Speaking Singlish.

By |April 25th, 2014|


Today’s “Things Jerry Says” is about him speaking singlish! This happened a while back when the husband wasn’t in town. I remembered i was out, driving with the 2 kids and my mum heading some where in the west for dinner and i was trying to keep the kids entertained by talking to them. Obviously, Jerry is the only one who can really hold conversations with me, but anything to ensure that they don’t fuss.

The 2 kids are nicely strapped in their car seats at the back while i drive, and the whole time, i had my eyes on the road. I kept talking to Jerry and realised that Jerome is like totally quiet, but i couldn’t turn around to check on him.

C: jerry what is didi doing?
J: siannor. .
C: Huh? What’s did you just say?
J: didi SIAN LOR!
C: OOhhh! Ok. (3 seconds lag later) Could you talk to […]

By |April 22nd, 2014|

cherieladie- bags

Last weekend, we packed the kids off to their grandparents for an afternoon and was getting ready to go out for ah boys to men musical when the following conversation happened…

C: (while I was taking a long time staring at my wardrobe and looking for a suitable bag to match my clothes…) sigh. I have no bags to complement my clothes. I think I need a new bag.
D: hmm….(gives me an incredulous look on his face and moments later..) Okay! Let’s go shopping for one later.
C: really?! OK! Let’s go! (Playing along cos I know the husband isn’t agreeable and knows that I have way too many bags)

A while later when I was wearing shoes getting ready to step out..

D: eh. I think I need to get a new watch. All my watches don’t seemed to be working […]

Things Jerry Says #9 – Mummy, i buy medicine for you!

By |April 11th, 2014|

Realized that I haven’t posted this “Things Jerry Says” post after I drafted it last week! So here it is! And just for record, I am STILL hacking away today, and the persistent cough is not getting any better. Hoping to get well soon since being under the weather is just meh!

I have been sick for as long as the husband is gone. I caught the bug from the kids who also has been sick for as long as the husband is gone. While all of us have seen the doc, this viral bug is proving quite deadly and my medication didn’t work as well (or maybe its the lack of sleep/rest and solo parenting that’s doing me in) and the kids are still being nebulized.

I happened to be coughing when Jerry came up to me and started stroking me on my back.

J: Mummy, you sick? Jerry saiyang.. (strokes […]

Things Jerry Says #8 – Taking care of x.Silly.

By |April 4th, 2014|


For those who are new on the blog or doesn’t know.. the little pig in the picture is called x.silly (actually short form for ‘xiao silly’ or 小silly, meaning ‘small silly’). I have a bigger version of the pig and his name is “Silly” and this smaller version is named as such, because he came after the big one (the husband gave it to me so that i can travel with it on a work trip). It was a really sweet gift from then bf a long time ago. They are really special because they are pigs with WINGS (if anyone sees an exact replica, please tell me!) – the husband’s surname is Choo (sounds like pig in chinese) and i used to say he is my angel hence the cute pigs with wings. The pigs are […]

Things Jerry Says #7 – I want to sit on an aeroplane!

By |March 31st, 2014|


This kid is seriously missing his daddy. For the days that the husband is gone, he has been constantly asking me “Where is papa?”. Like the first question when he wakes up and the last question before he closes his eyes for the day.. and maybe a gazillion times in between (ok, maybe not that much).

So over the weekend when i was done bathing him (which is why he is naked in the picture) and plonked him on the bed to dress him up… here’s what he said.

J: Mama, I want to sit aeroplane! (put both palms together and does zooming sounds and action from his right to left)
C: You want to sit on an aeroplane? Where do you want to go?
J: I want to sit aeroplane and go China! I want […]

Things Jerry says #6 – weather and wiper.

By |March 27th, 2014|

A short post on Things Jerry Says today.

I’m a little under the weather this week – caught the flu bug and cough from the kids (yes, they both are down as well) and the husband is away for work (for 10 days!) so i’m solo-parenting and struggling to stay alive. As much as I would love to blog more, i’m seriously strapped for time, and when the kids are asleep, the meds (hello, tiny yellow pill!) is way too strong for me to battle and i ended up crawling into bed right after typing a blog title. I do hope to get well soon, it sure sucks being sick and meanwhile, hang in there and do check back often yeah?

Here’s what Jerry said the other day..

Things Jerry says #5 – Respect for the nation

By |March 17th, 2014|


The husband sent me to the airport in the wee hours of the morning some weeks back when I was heading to Bangkok. On the way home, the national anthem was playing on national radio…

D: *sings along with the national anthem* Jerry, do you know how to sing?
J: papa! Must keep quiet (while national anthem is playing)
D: ……

Hilarious. Things kids say!

At not even 3 years old, this kid already learnt respect for the nation! Not bad, not bad at all.

(P.s. I claim no credit in this. I really got to attribute this to the school and their teachings)

Conversations with the husband #10 – buying a Samsung note 3.

By |March 1st, 2014|

I have been lemming for the samsung note 3 in rose gold color for the longest time and was totally determined to get it this weekend. It’s officially launched last week and i wasn’t around so i went on a quest today to hunt for the best bargain.

I reckon it’s an eye opening experience for the husband. I asked the first shop and he wanted to buy it there and then! I told him he’s mad. I eventually settled it at the 8th or 9th shop that I came across and saved the husband close to 60 bucks. He is a happy man with the moolah saved and I, a happy girl.  its a belated xmas present from the husb. But I had a real dilemma though.. I wanted to get the white for the longest time and I eventually got the black color..

C: what color should I get? […]

Things Jerry says #4 – the power of negotiation.

Things Jerry says: The negotiator

I can’t emphasise how much this kid amaze me all the time. I know that I said it many many times, but I guess I still need to say it mainly because I am so proud of him (or annoyed!) and it is a moment worth recording down. And mummies are always proud of their little one, however small an achievement because to us, they mean the world.

A couple of days ago, this kid isn’t on the best of behaviour. He refused to comply to any instruction and we were rushing out of the house for a party.  I needed him to sit in his car seat but all he did was scream, grab at me, kick and struggle.


In situations like this.. I had to dangle a carrot to get compliance…

(After struggling for what seems like ages)

Me: jerry! […]

Happy Valentine’s Day & conversations with the husband #9.

By |February 14th, 2014|

It’s Valentine’s Day and happy v day to all my readers out there! Yes, you, you, you and you.

I don’t have anything special planned for the day with the husband but we are going to spend tonight at my uncle’s place with family to end the last day of Chinese New Year celebrations.  The husband is secretly relieved that his pocket is very safe from a lavish dinner that I might potentially
extort outta him.

That said, valentine’s day is often an overhyped day and singles on this day often feel felt out. You shouldn’t be, because there is love between family and friends too. Spend the day with them and tell them how much they mean to you. Although technically, you should tell them that everyday.

And since it’s v-day, I’m gonna share another conversation with the husband with you guys. I’m lazy to type, but here’s a print screen of […]
