if anyone has any tips on how to get a baby less than a year old to settle in the car seat without having them wailing their lungs off, by all means do let me know. you'd have thought after numerous times being shuttled around in the car, she'd have gotten used to it by now. no dice. when Dayana was younger she would fall asleep as soon as the car starts moving (and she still does to this very day haha). with Dira, if it's not her sleeping time, she'll refuse to sleep, choosing instead to exercise her vocal cords with breaks in between to catch her breath before resuming T_T. Dinara will offer her sister her Bear for 5 minutes before taking it back, haha. so far only Atuk (in UK) has managed to catch her attention long enough to make her stop crying, i'm guessing probably because he's a whitey, something different to stare at apart from her parent's hangus faces LOL.
anyway, so there we were, three kids and a frazzled Mommy on the way to YuKids at the Curve on a Sunday afternoon. i guess since i'm rarely online these days i never got the location update on her birthday party, so i ended up at the wrong venue T__T (apparently i didn't get any whatsapp updates... and now i understand the feeling whenever Norley mentions the word 'askar' haha). the guy at the counter told me, 'yeah there was supposed to be a party, but they moved it over to Paradigm' T__T. ironically everyone i tried calling to ask about the party never picked up their phones, luckily Jaja was engrossed with instagramming and didn't miss my call bahahahahah.
we arrived at the venue in one piece, don't worry. as expected, the kids made a beeline for the rides without even bothering to check out the food. i remember the last time they went to a playland like this they were too scared to go on the rides on their own. Mommy jugaaakkk had to tag along, squeezing herself into those miniscule slides, sampai ter-sprain ankle hokeh T_T. this time i simply introduced them to the ball pool (you know, those enclosed space surrounded by net with so many balls inside it), left them there and made a beeline for the food, wahahahahaha.
