The day before yesterday we set off at 5am for the mountains of Andorra. We’re experiencing quite a warm winter this year,
Which is fine with me cos i really can’t function very well under extreme cold. hyuk hyuk! We did
manage to see snow and people skiing on the mountains in Andorra thanks to the machines which
churn out tonnes of snow overnight. Otherwise this little country of Andorra will go “pok gai” if
tourists don’t flock here to ski and shop. The shopping here is great cos there’s no tax. Add that to the
fact that the winter sale throughout the whole of europe is now on,…….. its just taxing on the wallet.
Nyx thoroughly enjoyed the cool temperature though, she was happy and snug like a pea in the pod
whenever we took her out to walk along the streets laden with tourists and ski fanatics. Do check out
the videos i’ve loaded here:
There’s also this video of Nyx trying to hold her own bottle taken last week:
I recently started giving little Nyxie boiled and blended food and she loves experimenting with new
tastes and textures. Eveytime i put something in front of her nose, she starts behaving like a shark and
tries to gobble up whatever it is hovering in front. Last night i let her try some clementines, and I took some videos of it.

Thank you Priscilla and George for the yummy steamboat and hotplate dinner last night! It was absolutely scrumptous. We had “aw lua” (oyster omelette), “ah char”, fried bee hoon, abalone, lots and lots of fish balls, pork balls, seafood balls, prawns, squid and George’s secret recipe for fried tofu.
Its supposed to be the middle of winter now but surprisingly the weather is pretty warm. I was told that while we were in Singapore for the holidays, the temperature here went down as low as minus 6 degrees celsius. Now, I can even go outdoors wearing a tanktop!
After we got back here on Monday, Nyx has become super duper attention-seeking. I think its from all the attention she got from relatives and friends the past few weeks. Everytime I put her down she screams and wails…… OMG. Its like a fire alarm ringing in my head. I just tell myself this will pass, very soon she’s gonna grow up and won’t want me to carry her anymore, sniff sniff.
Oh yeah! Just 2 more days and we’ll be well on our way back to Singapore for the holidays. Over the past few days, Nyx has also been developing her motor skills quite abit. She’s attempting to hold her own milk bottle while i’m feeding her, rolling like a sausage on the bed and doing mini sit-ups when she’s put in the car seat. Oh and before I forget to add, she’s also started a very painful habit of screaming real loud when I ignore her attempts to hold a conversation with me. Check out this picture where she’s doing the “peace” sign. haha!
The day before yesterday I took little Nyxie to the pediatrician for her first vaccination. It was hilarious……. actually I was squirmish at first when the doctor pierced the needle into Nyx’s right butt cheek. I though she would cry out in pain and agony but instead she turned to look at the doctor and started shouting at him, Wah hahahaha!!!! (she didn’t cry at all even though the thick needle went so deep in)
The doctor was quite surprised too at that. He went on to inject her left buttock with the second jab and she once again turned towards him and shouted, hahaha! It was really funny….. even the doctor started laughing. But I was so sad after that cos i saw her two injection wounds start to bleed, sniff sniff. Anyways, I was so glad the little girl didn’t scream and wail and cry like I though she would. She now weighs 7kg for a three month old, whoa! The doctor asked me if I was feeding her anything else, negative. She’s only taking in mommy’s milk. Then he asked me if Guojun is tall and overweight or big sized, nope. He told me that Nyx is actually pretty heavy for her age, yikes! Guess I’d better lay off the chocolate coated nuts, Rochers, chips and Nutella for awhile…….. haha.
Here’s a picture guojun took of both of us watching cartoons together last night. See you all in Singapore next week!
Yes! Just 12 more days to go and we’ll be on our way back to Singapore for the holidays and Nyx will get to meet the rest of the family. We will be setting off for the airport in Bordeaux early in the morning, something like 5am….. wait for 4 hours in the airport at Paris to catch our flight back to Singapore and arrive at Changi airport at 7.20am on a Sunday morning, the 17th of December.
