Wow... 6 months already.. well, almost. Time flies by so fast when you're counting how old your kid is. And they grow up so fast... from just sleeping on the bed... to squirming.. to rolling around.. to crawling around.. and pretty soon they'll be so different from how they were 3 months ago. So best to remember what ever you've been doing with your babies, cause you never know when they have a change of heart and act differently all of a sudden...


After this picture was taken, WZ learnt how to put his head up while his is lying on his stomach. He doesn't want to sleep on me after that.

So.. at 5 months out.. WZ can pretty much chase an Ang Pow around the bed. But that wasn't the case when he was 3 months old, and he was still doing the keep kicking till he flips over style of rolling over.

 Look at this place...


Now... would you buy a gate for your house from a place like this? Look at the weeds!!! Look at the worn out gate, and the menacing looking lock and chain! Looks more like a drug joint than a showroom for house gates. My wife says that the reason they have such a depilated place is that the main office is in Ipoh and they don't want to spend too much money in a showroom to pass on the savings to the customer.

I bought WZ a colorful ball that crinkles, but all he does with it is chew and drool into it. It doesn't really attract him that much.

But show him an Ang Pow and well.. my mother was right... you don't need to buy colorful shiny toys for your babies to play with.

Why is it that mobile phone browsing technology just always seems to lag behind actual desktop web browsing technology?

First the mobile phones had WAP, which.. well.. I guess you have to say it was kinda a joke. But it enabled phone to actually browse information on the Internet.. even if said data had to be specially formatted for the particular device.

Then after a long time, mobile phones started adopting the XHTML standard, which although looks SIMILAR to normal web pages, had more stringent rules on formatting and while some phones which supported XHTML could see normal web pages, most of them would still choke on the immense resources required to display the onslaught of angle brackets!

Parallel to this, certain high end phones started appearing which had web browsers that almost shared the same capabilities of a desktop browser. But these phones were expensive, and not for mass consumption.

Recently I saw that many new mass market phones are equipped with pretty capable browsers, therefore.. while the screens, at a resolution of 320x240 might be small, but the majority of the web could finally be browsed even if the viewer might have to scroll around alot.

So I thought that mobile devices have finally caught up... then I started realising that more and more sites are using the AJAX mindset in displaying their information, complex DOM manipulations, etc. etc. A mobile phone browser might be able to support SOME Javascript commands... but definetly not all the scenarios out there so... here we go again..
