One Week Baby

May 31, 2007 1

Mayenne is one-week old today. She is feeding better after we used bottle. Milk is expressed from mum’s breasts so that we can monitor her intake. If it’s not enough, we supplement with formula milk powder. Her feeding pattern becomes more pronounced over the days.…

I am feeling the first setback as a parent. Today visited the paediatrician. He informed us that Mayenne is not gaining enough weight. We have noticed that since birth she has not been feeding well. She slept soundly during the day, responded to feeds rather…

We had a rough first night at home. Baby refused to sleep after meals. After putting her down, she woke up and cried again. We found that her nose block is worsened after I applied the nose drip and it disrupted her feed. I slept…

Baby Goes Home

May 27, 2007 3

Mummy told me that Baby is feeding better after the nurse helped out last night. And it seems that we have been under-feeding the baby. This morning, Baby was clamouring for more milk every half hour, keeping Mummy very busy. Fortunately, she was satisfied by…

3 Days, Daddy

May 26, 2007 0

Mayenne is being diagnosed with mild jaundice, and is put under UV light for the entire day. She is still not very proficient in suckling the breast, and we were kindda worried as we are unable to tell whether she has taken enough milk. Her…

24 Hours Later

I reached hospital at about 9.30am, and a clinician was already there to teach little Mayenne how to suck so that she can feed on breast milk properly. And thank goodness it helped. The paediatrician informed us that she has mucus build-up on her nose…

Birth Day

May 24, 2007 4

Today I became a daddy. Last night, my wife and I went to watch Pirates of the Carribean 3 at Bishan GV. She wished to finish the final trilogy before she went into confinement after birth, so I took the risk and bought the tickets…

Retouch, Untouched

May 22, 2007 0

Warning: the following site may devastate your belief in the images you always see in every day life.http://www.christyschuler.com/retouching.htmlThe general rule is: anything perfectly beautiful on print is almost-certainly unreal. As much as I abhor this rule, and as much as there are untouched images around,…

Month of Movies

May 20, 2007 0

In the next 6 weeks, there will be one new movie every week that I would love to watch. Alas, it’s the time when my wife is due to give birth. What great timing! 24 May – Pirates of the Carribean 3 31 May –…

I love creating photobooks. It’s the best end-product to the photos compiled into meaningful sequences. I also like to capture images reflecting the real person – in another word, journalistic. See, anyone who puts on make-up and styles the hair and wears nice clothes will…

Waiting to Engage

My wife will be off from work for the next 4 months. She will start her maternity leave from today and she will stay at home to wait for the signs of contraction and to give birth to our baby. She should be blogging all…

All of us has a biological clock that our body keeps such that our internal organs function in routine, from waking up to eating to shitting to sleeping. The most obvious effects of our biological clock is during jet lag when you travel to another…

Web: Unlimited

When I started creating my own web site in 1997, I had to rely on my own server space to host all my content, like photos and music files. And when someone asked me how he/she can create their own website, I told them it’s…

Dramatised Comics

May 14, 2007 0

Watched Spider-Man 3 last Friday. Very lengthy and longwinded movie, very untypical of a superhero movie. In fact, nowadays comic heroes have been humanised to explore other aspects. Even the villains are no longer bad without a reason. So far, all the villains in the…

Photo Journal

After a movie, I was walking back home when I saw this scene. The couple was supposed to be pushing their bicycles and I wanted to capture that scene, something that is rarely seen in modern Singapore. As I took out my Fuji F31fd, the…

Alma Mater Matters

May 10, 2007 0

In recent months, my secondary school and university alma maters have been aggressively promoting the alumni activities. If you are wondering, I finished ‘O’ Levels from Catholic High School and got my bachelor degree at Nanyang Technological University (NTU). There is a big difference in…

Jack Neo, a local Singapore film-maker, starts his own blog! Jack is a very well-known TV personality for over 2 decades. He started off as a comedian in variety shows and slowly worked his way into producing TV shows and finally movie-making. His movies reach…

I was having lunch with a colleague, and while we were discussing about how ridiculous property prices were and how some people can afford them, it dawned upon me that there are people in different social groups whose ways of lives we could never have…

“J” is for journalism, and citizen journalism the new buzzword for the year. Everyone is encouraged to send newsworthy events to the news station to get them published and publicised. It’s ironic how an event that was been criticised as trying to exploit free publicity…
