Hello! We’re about to leave for Hong Kong. So, I’ve decided to make it a little bit more interesting for Edward to know what we would do there. I build my own set of Flashcards.

Of course, I’m not that good in designing or drawing, hence I’ve used tons of Google Images on these. I hope Edward would enjoy this…

Now is probably the best time as he’s addicted to Flashcards.

Hi Folks! I grew tired of looking for Duplo patterns where I don’t have the parts in the end. So, I did my own patterns, take a photo of it, show to Edward, give him the parts and make him follow it. Easy huh?

Here are some of the patterns we made. Note, the second one he did by himself. He doesn’t want to follow the pattern I made. Now that’s a different problem. Haha.

In a toy store, Edward already selected a toy he likes. It was Red from Disney Cars, and while looking at other toys, a bigger kid suddenly appeared and was trying to pull the toy away from him. He didn’t let go.

I said “Excuse Me” to the kid and his guardian came back to say sorry. But Edward was shaken. He asked me to carry him from then forward. And he became very quiet. I tried to explain to him that sometimes situation like that happens. But I was there to do something about it. And if I’m not around, he should tell others. He said he was scared and in the verge of crying.

I felt really bad because I wasn’t able to protect him properly. After coming home, I wished I handled the situation differently. It’s really frustrating. Sometimes the right words wouldn’t come out at the right time.

So parents, be vigilant. Situation like this can happen anytime anywhere.

I fought the urge to buy this set. I fought really hard. It costs 799.75 Php in Toy Kingdom. And there was an expansion kit for 499.75. Sorry no pic for that. I was so happy as I was able to resist temptation.

Now… At home while I research more about it… I’ve realized Re-ment made these again. Ohno! They are taunting me…

If you pictures got you convinced, you may go to Fan21HK to make your purchase. Credits to the same website for the photos.

As for me, I’m still convincing myself I don’t need those. And it’s super duper hard.

This book is similar to the other sticker book I’ve featured. But I like this version better. Not much sticker as the other one but the stickers here are not flimsy.

The activities in the book are different as well. It has puzzles, mazes, spelling on top of the normal sticker puzzle.

Overall, I like this version better, Edward was able to play with this on his own. I’m amazed at how he can remember all the names of the truck. Quite cool. I’m proud of you my boy.

I recall playing with something like this when I was a child. From what I remember I need to put something underneath it before I scratch the lead in the paper.

image

But now, it’s different. Nothing underneath the page and you just run through the lead.

Whola! The result. This was a fun activity to do. As it brings back memories from the past. Sadly, Edward doesn’t appreciate it yet.

I got the book from National Bookstore in MIBF for 30 Php. Fair deal huh? Must look for something like this in the next book fair.

Because Edward was craving for noodles and I was craving for Porkchop. Tasty Dumpling to the rescue. This place is known for the porkchop noodle. I got to admit, I have been eating their noodle since I was a kid. Not only is the porkchop good, the chili sauce is a good compliment. It’s perfect. Too bad they don’t deliver to our area. So while Edward is still in school, I’ll grab the opportunity to buy this more often. image image Apologies as I wasn’t able to take a picture of the food alone… Edward was excited to eat. Nevertheless, a preview… Go try it out! image The silver roll is also famous… It goes well with Hong Ma.
