Micro SD card 1 GB..

bought a 1GB card for my Samsung D900.. and it works flawlessly... wanted to get a 2GB one.. but read up on a lot of ppl having issue with the 2GB card.. so decided to hoot a 1 GB one .. cost me $14.... lol.. its cheap!!!...

a 2GB was going for $$28....knn.. memory card are getting cheaper and cheaper


Sunday is a trip to Sentosa.... first trip for Marcus.. for me its my third trip there in my life... :) went with my parents as they had some entry free pass...arrived at 930am..

weather was hot as expected.. and sunblock was handy...
1st Stop underwater World .. i would suggest to those who drive.. parking at the Underwater world is the best.. cause the $10 parking is redeemable in full when you purchase the entrance ticket to the Oceania... then you can take the free internal bus service to travel around the whole day!!

Saw the pink dolphins too... but seems Marcus was more interested in playing with the sand...

left the place at 1230 pm.. for lunch at Vivo the weather was too hot for walking....

Marcus Term End Assement..

Mrs had a 1 on 1 with Marcus's teacher.. a few comments like the teacher said" Marcus is the only one in the whole class who tells me what i am wearing is nice.." I was like hur.. when mrs told me this....hmmmm...

2. He is quick with matching.. meaning the teacher shows him a alphabet and he is able to match and point to the corresponding pic.. he was the fastest and most accurate...
3. Teacher also said he is the only one in class to pick up a song fast..
4. One thing he is lousy with listening to instructions.. he just like to do it his way....
5. He is the only one when given the task of drawing his family.. able to draw 4 circles with eyes, mouth and hair....hmmmm.....

oh well .. i am pleased with his progress...

Marcus really is a handful..

well we managed to keep him away from western Medicine for 3-4 weeks.. even my auntie who was here said " did he put on weight ".. Mrs smile...

well luck has to be the other way...Marcus caught some skin infection around the right nostril...and we had to bring him to a doc as 2 days later( Sat/ Today) , the rashes seem to multiply...The moment the doc saw it... "Skin infection " he said.. and my heart sank... hiaz.. Antibiotics.. Anti inflammable syrup... hiaz...he is on his second day course of medicine .. His rashes has reduced... so right now , i do not want him to loose his appetite, so far so good.

Poor boy....

Another Weekend...

another weekend has pass again ... Brought Marcus for a swim at Bukit Batok.. seems swimming is keeping his runny nose at bay.. 3weeks and counting .. not a drop of western medicine yet...looks good... and me and mrs also noticed that Marcus has gained some weight around his face....

In the morning dropped by SimLim Tower to pick up my custom made battery pack for my RC cars. wanted a NiCad Pack instead of NiMh.. well why i pick the former because of the power drop of curve.. NiCad has a slower power dip curve compared to NiMh.. thats why for all RC cars/planes and heli .. NiCd is recommended for Receiver Power...

Some Random pics taken over the weekend..
