Our Little Precious

He’s getting cuter every day. He's already walking and speaks quite a number of simple words (eg. deh-deeeee, kakak, ah ma, shoe, bird-bird, baloon, pao-pao, mam-mam, nen-nen, jie-jie, kai-kai, wow-wow, car, apple, bear-bear, pa-pa-ya, ball, picture etc etc). He talks in brief baby sentences which we find very entertaining. He tries to amuse us all the time. Eventhough it has been tough for us, he is our greatest achievement and parents should feel proud to say it. It’s the greatest feeling of all. He's sort of a reflection of myself when I was his age (according to mom). Am certainly going to miss these magical moments when he grows older...

Happy Chinese New Year 2011

This Chinese New Year is certainly going to be a whole new experience for us as we'll be celebrating it with lil Ryan for the very first time! Looking forward to it.

I hope you've had a splendid Tiger year and are now ready to greet the Rabbit with open arms. Here's hoping the Rabbit brings more prosperity, better luck and abundance of good health to everyone!

Wishing everyone a happy and prosperous Chinese New Year 2011, from me, Jan and lil Ryan...!

Huat ahhh...!!!

Spring Cleaning 2011

It's that time of the year again. And I believe everyone else is doing it as well - spring cleaning!

Gates, grilles, curtains, blinds, ceiling fans, cabinets, fridge - basically things that you don't clean often, needs to be cleaned at least once a year! :p

Not to forget putting up all the CNY decos, 'painting' the house RED!

Happy cleaning everyone!

Project 180 - Updates 27/01/2011

Another 6km completed in 45 minutes today.

Since I have gotten serious into running for slightly more than 5 weeks now, I have lost 4kg.

I run and workout 5-6 days in a week these days. I also tend to be more careful with my daily diet. Project 180 is very much on time! I'm seeing progress and will continue to work hard!

Feeling Good!

It was nightmare for us the night before, especially wifey, because lil Ryan was fussing the whole night and could only fall asleep briefly in Jan's arms. And then he would wake up and fuss again. Imagine that this went on for the whole night.

Last night was pretty good. I don't know what was going on, but our best guess would be because he's growing new tooth.

Today I woke up and ran for another 6km ++ at 6am. Frankly, it's rather dangerous to be running in the dark, but I guess this is the best time since I can't possibly run in the evening these days due to my busy schedule. All sorts of things hit my mind running under the dark skies (eg. dogs, thieves, ghosts!!!) but I just ran on. Completed the course in about 40 mins, alternating between light jogs, sprints and brief walks. It's the best cardio exercise to burn away the spare tyre I read.

I lost 2kg since I started running weeks ago. It feels good but it's not the weight that I'm going after, I was just trying to keep a lean and toned abs. I just hope all the 2kg came from the tummy!

Anyway, I'm feeling good today! Hope you are too!

Project 180 - Together We Can Achieve

I have been missing from the blogging scene for about a year now. Blame it on Facebook, yeah that's an easy target. Can't deny that FB has since been transformed from a mere social networking online application (like how Friendster used to be) into more like a neccessity (I dare say) to a certain group of people. I check FB as frequent as I check my emails, imagine that.

Apologies if I haven't announced it here, I am now a proud father to my baby boy Ryan, born on the 16th March 2010. We are truly blessed to have him and we sincerely thank God for his safe arrival. Now this addition to the family, together with FB and most of all, my pure laziness, has attributed to my lack of blogging for the past 1 year. LOL.

Back to the blog title, I am setting myself half a year to get rid of the beer tummy and hopefully you will see a healthier, fitter me by mid of 2011. My ultimate goal is to rebuild my stamina and I hope to have the beautiful six pack to show after half a year! (Do I actually sound over-confident??)

It was my buddy KC who has actually motivated me. I have always wanted to keep fit, but you know it's always easier said than done. After reading his blogs on his various cardio exercises, health gadgets etc, the fire in me started to burn again and I know this is something all of us can achieve. ~TOGETHER WE CAN ACHIEVE!~

p/s: KC, if you're reading this, please don't stop blogging, it's my source of inspiration! LOL

World Cup 2010 South Africa

I was born in the year 1978, the year where the 11th staging of the FIFA World Cup was coincidentally held in Argentina, and the Argies went on to win it for the very first time. Of all the games that my father watched that year, he must have held me in his arms when Argentina lifted the Cup in the Final where they beat the Netherlands 3-1 after extra time. Perhaps that is the reason why I grew up supporting Argentina? Interesting and debatable eh. I can't remember a thing though! Nevertheless, I guess I started supporting them in the 1986 and 1990 World Cup where Diego Maradona was at his peak, performing miracles.

The next edition of the World Cup will be held in South Africa, in 2010 next year. All the big guns have already qualified and that includes England, Spain, Netherlands, Germany, Argentina, Brazil and Italy. It will be interesting to see how Argentina fare in the tournament next year, after a less than convincing qualifying campaign which saw them earning South America's final automatic berth for next year's tournament during a do or die battle where they eventually defeated Uruguay 1-0 away. It will also be interesting to see how England cope with the mounting pressure of being seen as the best ever assembled England squad in recent years. The first and also the last time they ever won the prestigious tournament was back in 1966.

You can bet people from all walks of life will be glued to the TV from 11th June till 11th July next year. I have female friends who claim that they'd never watch a football match, but when it comes to World Cup, it's a different story altogether. You can hear them talking, discussing or even condemning referees who failed to award penalties to their teams. That's the beauty of World Cups.

I can't wait and I'm certainly looking forward to next June, but what could be different this time is I will have the chance to watch the games with my little one!!! Coincidentally, he will be born in a World Cup year as well. You can bet I will have him all nicely dressed up in an Argentina baby jersey (if there really is one), cradling him in one hand, with a can of beer in another. Milk bottle more like it...LOL
