Berries Picking

Earlier today was an extremely hot day. It totally felt like being in Malaysia, except the fact that we were surrounded by fields filled with berries. Yes, we went berries picking today.

Because chubby kid could not stand being outdoors in the bright daylight, we had to rush through our berries picking. Thus, I did not take as many photos as I wanted to and the photos were not very good.

At the berries farm, we could see big fields and there were all sorts of berries.


We first went over to check out the blackcurrants but they did not taste very nice. Maybe we picked the not so ripe ones.


Then we went over to the tayberries. Yes, tayberries. It was the first time I had ever heard of such a berry. This is how tayberries look like.


There were also lots of gooseberries.


But of course, they did not look anything like a goose. Instead, they looked like green grapes with veins and furry thorns.


We then went over to the raspberries section to check out the raspberries.


Having tried all the berries, we decided that they did not taste as good as we imagined that they would be. Perhaps, it was due to our incompetence in picking ripe and delicious ones. So, we proceeded to the strawberries field.


And we picked to our hearts’ content.


In total, we picked 1kg of strawberries. Hmm...delicious!

2.5 Years Old

Today, chubby kid is exactly 2.5 years old.  We are rather pleased with her development so far.  She has been doing great both indoors and outdoors.  Although her eye disorder limits her outdoor vision, she seems to function quite well under supervision.

She is increasingly naughty but cute at the same time.  Her physical movements have improved tremendously although her speech still needs some more practice.  We have not yet succeeded in potty-training her.  We only succeed in getting her to sit down on her potty with her diapers and pants on.

She also has issues about wearing short sleeves shirts and shorts, as she is so much used to wearing long sleeves and long pants before this.  She also does not like wearing any unfamiliar, new shoes or sandals, and will only wear her current shoes.


One thing has not changed though.  She still drools as much as before.

These photos were taken at 10:15pm last night.  As you can see, the sky was not even completely dark yet.

Tinted Glasses

We collected chubby kid’s sunglasses today.  It has the same frame as her indoor glasses but different in colour and is tinted to help her shield the bright daylight.


But of course, she refuses to wear it.
