Fireworks and Nyx being a little frightened by it
Here are some pictures Guojun took last Friday night at the squadron where our Singaporean community here celebrated CNY along with some French guests. Nya and I stayed home and had to give the dinner party a miss as both of us were having high fevers. We’ve both recovered already and everyone is well. Unfortunately there are many folks here suffering from the same thing and now there’s an outbreak of stomach flu too, I really hope none of us catch the awful virus and that whoever is down with anything gets a speedy recovery.

Ever since the strong winds hit us the whole of Saturday with speeds of over 100km/hr. We’ve had several power failures (extremely inconvenient and frustrating) and we also lost our internet connection as well the phone connection. The mobile network was down for awhile too, even today it was unavailable for sometime
Although the strong winds did its damage and left several uprooted trees (some are really big) and signposts, etc in its wake, we still see a whole big mess out there. Even after several days, the town council is still trying to chop up the fallen trees and clear the area. Roads were blocked, there were floods and debri strewn everywhere. I took some pictures of the friendly neighbourhood trees which were not able to withstand the awful weather three days ago. The heavy rains contributed to their demise too….. I’m really praying this horrible weather stops plagueing us.
Oh and Happy New Year to everyone! Love love!
Ever since the girls started with the phlegmy cough, its been one nonsensical sleep-depriving, nerve wrecking, syringe-wrestling, irritable crying- filled two weeks for me and Guojun. A few days ago Nyx had a high fever due to an ear infection and now Nya is having high fevers (up to 39.9 degrees celcius!) since last night. So much so that we had to rush her to the hospital’s A&E at 3 plus this morning because her temperature refused to go down despite the sponging and suppository we had to shove up her butt.
Just to play safe we also brought her to see her pediatrician Higuet this morning at 10am. I really hope to avoid having anyone of us sick again. Guojun and I have become such light sleepers now because we’re so afraid of the girls’ temperatures rising. Nya even puked thrice this morning and according to her doctor its due to the discomfort she experiences from the viral throat infection when she swallows. He says the fever can also be attributed to the fact that she’s teething. She has 4 teeth on the upper palate cutting through, so you can imagine how CRANKY she is. Even Nyx gets so frustrated and keeps shaking her hands and asking “meimei what do you want??!!!!!” “Haiyah!”
Our first family picture in San Sebastian
One of my definite stops in SS, the huge triple storey ZARA store
Nyx shopping in Hugo Boss
I think this is the 5th trip for our family to San Sebastian and everytime we come here, shopping is the main objective. Hahaha…..
I wish I had remembered to whip out my camera more often to take pictures of the lovely surroundings while the sun was still shining though. These pictures I took were when it was already sundown, shucks. We drove here together with a bunch our friends, 4 cars in total. And thank goodness the two babies decided to be very cooperative throughout the day despite being confined from morning till night in the carseat and the stroller.
This afternoon I took Nya to the therapist’s clinic for the 3rd time and I was so happy to hear him say that she didn’t need any more sessions!!!! Oh yeah! The past 2 lung massage therapies must have really scared Nya because when she laid her eyes on the therapist’s face, she started wailing and screaming and tears started streaming down her face. Thank goodness she didn’t have to go through the process again today. Nyx is also recovering and coughing alot less. Both girls have stopped vomitting too as they don’t have to cough so hard to try and clear the phlegm anymore, so I’m very relieved.
