Getting Tougher

Just when I thought the previous two week’s event was tough enough, silly me…

Last Saturday was my sister’s Chinese wedding dinner. Initially I was naïve to assume that it will be a less hectic day compared to Indian dinner (a jam-packed whole day event). But alas, it turned out the whole day I was very busy taking care of Sarah. She was having fever that day (caused by the growing Molars).

Her crankiness over the day was just unbearable.

Anyway, we manage to reach the dinner at about 7.45pm. Sarah started to feel uncomfortable the moment she was in the restaurant. After much effort in comforting her, she finally sat down on the high chair, but not for long. Once the karaoke session started, she just cried, cried and cried. Maybe she doesn’t like the loud sound and maybe also due to the fever…she felt frustrated!

As you can imagine, I did not have the chance to sit still on my chair for the rest of the dinner. I was busy carrying her around and wiped her tears…poor girl!

Until a moment she felt sleepy and tired, she just fell asleep in my arm till the dinner ended. What a relief…

This was another challenge for me. Apparently it is not easy to take care of a sick toddler while attending a wedding dinner.



P/S: Thank God that Sarah is in the process of recovery from the fever.

Sarah was not feeling well that day huh. That's why she was cranky. Hope she is feeling better already.

Perhaps, Sarah's not feeling well and not comfortable with the fever during the dinner

Ryan doesn't like the karaoke session and cried.

You look stunning in that pretty dress!!

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Doreen and Mommy Gwen - Yes, Sarah just cried througout the dinner, when saw her cried till her eyes were red also felt sad.

Anyway, thanks for the compliment. I hope I dont look fat in the dress. hehe.

Mummy Gwen said...

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Mommy Gwen - Hehe...thanks for your kind words.

Joanne, you look great in that dress ya!!

Is Sarah getting better? The rashes clear?

I plan to bring Kyle to attend one of my friend wedding dinner, hopefully he can tahan that long...he normally sleep around 10pm, am headache how to handle that...

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Yugene..hehe, thanks for your compliment.

Sarah is getting so much better today. The rashes are slowly subsided.

I think since Kyle is sleeping at late hour, should be ok. Not like Sarah, she sleeps at 8pm. So even before the dinner started, already feeling sleepy.
Maybe you can bring some snack, baby biscuit for Kyle for the dinner. Just incase he is asking for food before the dinner served.

Joanne...! and u said u were fat??? No. U look so pretty n slim in tat outfit. Since giving birth I din get d chance to wear those sphagetti straps dresses anymore. Scared of my fat arms, and now, wid the notti boy, scared will "zhao kong".. Poor Sarah..too bad it was ur sis wedding, otherwise I think u might as well stay at home wid her. Last time when I 1st brought Ashton to wedding dinner wid K-OK session, he cried as well. I think Sarah is scared of loud noise!

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Esmeralda - Ai yo..pai seh pai seh after saw your compliments. Dont you think I have big arms too? Maybe is the dress that makes me looked slim..
- I am sure your arms is smaller than mine. Tats why I asked you to show me one of your photo..hehe.
Sometimes I also scared of wearing stap blouse and dress, but the one that I am wearing confirm wont zhao kong!
- you are right, if that was not my sister wedding, I will sure stay at home.
- Ashton also scared of loud sound system? Now still like that?

MommyAngel said...

Esmeralda said...

Joanne - I think ur arms are smaller lar.. Ya maybe ur dress will not easily zhao kong one. If my dress sure can't carry Ashton liao. Hv to sit quietly at the table.. (I mean on the chair). Yup, Caroline just mentioned bout ur hair. Did u do that urself? Simple yet elegant!

Caroline - Haha... We r having a competition on "who's arms are bigger!!!" I'm also trying to loose weight but so tired everyday so everytime have to postpone.

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Caroline - Hehe, pai seh again, but thanks for your comment :-) I bought the dress from J.Jusco, and can you belief that I got this dress on last min shopping (coz I can't get any nice clothes at my wardrobe), and you know how I choose this dress? I used one hand to carry Sarah and the other one bz flipping thru the clothes and finally got this..am i geng! haha
- Hehe, as I told you I am on diet now. And dont envy me, coz I belief you can be like me too..waiting for your good news. Once we have successfully lost our weight, then we can wear nice2 baju mah..

Caroline and Esmeralda - You both really looked at the pics very detailed ya..hehe.
My hair was not set by me, coz I am not that expert in tidying my own hair. So I went to a saloon and get it done for me. Nice hor, is only cost me RM28.

Esmeralda - Really ar? Thanks for your kind words.
- You also join me and Caroline in the diet plan lah..

JoAnne said...

Joanne, u look gorgeous and pretty in this dress... big arms ?! where got, u have fair skin li...

i wish to get one too after saw ur post, but can't found the suit dress lo, end up also one cloth + skirt/pant to attend my BIL wedding dinner, hehe :)

The hairdo is cheap only RM28, very suit you :)

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Joanne N - Hehe, thanks for your compliment. I really think I got big arms, but maybe the pic doesnt display it clearly.

Actually I got the dress from Jusco lady department, and it cost RM89. I think is quite worth it because the clothes has a very flowy look and the material also very comfy to wear on.
Nevermind, as long as you feel comfortable with the outfit that you are wearing to dinner, then ok lor..

Yes, only rm28...thanks ya!
