Baby’s Second Month

Baby Vanessa is two months old today. We don’t have any special celebration. Well except that perhaps her daddy’s friend dropped in with his baby boy (and mum) for a quick visit in the morning, so the two babies had several moments to attempt some socializing. Vanessa has become more picky with things. I suppose she’s now more aware of…

The 6-in-1 Jab

Vanessa had her 6-in-1 jab today. She protested with a cry when her jab site was swabbed with alcohol, but she was quite ok with the injection itself. That’s good if she’s not going to be scared of injections. She had her baby stats taken today — 5.06kg. Grown a fair bit. We were just telling the doctor about how…

Baby’s Full Month

Today is baby’s full month. 4 weeks to be precise… so not technically 1 calendar month. We had a big celebration (big as in many people… not that it was super grand or lavish… haha) at the condo function room. Food was catered, decorations we did ourselves. Baby was her usual good self. I think they probably don’t cry much…

Baby is Finally Registered

Yes, we took that long to get baby Vanessa registered. We tripped down to ICA this morning. The car park was so super congested, the building was almost overflowing with lots of queues, but oddly enough, queue for birth registration was just 5 minutes. So finally baby Vanessa legally exists — not that this would be a special day to…

Student suspended for bypassing network security

According to this article from Network World, a student at the University of Portland was suspended after having discovered a weakness and exploited it to bypass Cisco’s NAC software agent to get onto the university’s network. The suspension seems to be a harsh punishment and the popular defense seems to be that the act was not malicious and no one…

The M1 3G network is down

Seems it is now M1’s turn to have problems with 3G. Since about 7pm (at least that’s when I noticed), I was unable to access 3G data services. Voice calls were okay though, fortunately, so at least in this respect it was better than the SingTel 3G outage that happened last year. I wonder how reliable the 3G elsewhere in…

The Story of MY Bak-Gua

Phoebe, the little girl mini-schnauzer, is very sneaky. This happened before CNY. We brought home a box of bak-gua. It was packed in the usual paper wrapping, inside a box, inside a plastic bag. It was placed on the floor, amongst other things, when we came home. Some time later, while we were playing Warcraft I think, we heard some…

11 Days Today

This is baby Vanessa on her daddy’s lap, one week after returning home. This is one of the rare moments when her eyes are open. She spends most of her time sleeping as most newborns do. For some strange reason, she prefers me to carry her in a “football hold” over any other method. I thought the football hold was…

Fun with 3G

3G is the third-generation of mobile communications technology for mobile phones. Although not the newest thing anymore (it’s been out for maybe two years now and 3.5G is already being rolled out), widespread use of 3G services still isn’t very common. Many people probably already have a 3G-enabled phone connecting to a 3G network, but not many are really making…
