Sunday, 5 May 2019

5 May 2019 marks the 10th anniversary of Cassandra’s first surgery – a Uretheral Reimplantation Surgery to fix a Grade 3 Kidney Reflux on the right duplex kidney. That surgery got into an unfortunate complication and despite a battery of X-rays plus a CT-Scan, multiple ultrasound scans and a Fluoroscopy, all the scan images did not pick up anything abnormal in the guts.  Baby C kept throwing up green stuff and her stomach kept ballooning by the day with a fever.  Can you imagine the amount of radiation absorbed by poor Baby C’s frail tiny body? Two weeks later, she was operated on in an emergency surgery and the surgeon found a kink at the end of her guts. That 3 weeks at GMC Penang was the darkest period of my life.  Can’t believe that it’s 10 years already!!

10 years on and my Baby C has grown from a super adorable baby into a very determined  headstrong girl who recently always bumps head with me. I was told by a doctor that it’s what she’d gone through during her babyhood that forms her pig-headedness with a high pain threshold.   Nonetheless, she still has a very special place in my heart and I am sure that one day, she will finally understand everything that I do for her.

But hey, it’s onwards and upwards from here!  New research has shown that stubbornness, it seems, is a really good predictor of a child’s future success in life. Guess who earned the highest salaries in the end? The kids who ignored both rules and their parents. So, if your kid always demands a bigger cookie or other whims and fancies, they’ll probably grow up to demand for bigger bonus and more perks. Makes sense, no? 🤑

OK, back to our Sunday and foodie talk!

Despite the next day being Alycia’s exam and in a week’s time it’s Cass’ exam, we spent the entire afternoon at Pavillion – digging into glorious food, desserts, boba tea and shopping for Nike shoes! The girls even asked to watch End Game, but I said NO!

After a sumptuous lunch at Rakuzen Pavillion, we went to Nike and hubs said everyone could choose a pair of shoes and other stuff!  🤩

After 1.5 hours at Nike, check out the big shopping bags that the girls are holding here:

Damage was 6 pairs of sports shoes, 2 pairs of slippers, 2 sports bra for Alycia and Sherilyn, 3 shirts and 2 basketball pants and socks for the hubs. I chose a pair of running shoes in dusty pink, my favorite color 😊 Don’t ask how serious the damage was!

Dessert was at Miru:

And we tried KOI boba tea. Alycia waited patiently for half an hour to get her golden boba milk tea and Konyaku jelly milk tea with quarter sugar for me.

And the verdict: The tea is more expensive than Tealive and Cha Time and does not taste as good as all the ravings have been. There’ll be no more second time. I’m sticking to Tealive, Cha Time and Gongcha.

I guess Sherilyn has been the happiest today. Not only did she get herself a good pair of Nike running shoes, she and her friend got through the Berjaya Teen Star Challenge audition (modern dance event)!  But this shall be in a separate post ☺️  Stay tuned…
