KTM Memories

The Malaysia railway – Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM) station at Tanjong Pagar went down in history at the end of June 2011. My deepest memory of this place – I took a train from this station in 1999 to Kuala Lumpur by myself – to visit my then boyfriend now hubby! My mum sent me off at the train station. Apparently that was my mum’s only trip to the KTM station too!

It was a little crazy thinking back … it was an overnight ride. I merely clutch on to my bag and tried to stay awake as the train made numerous stops before reaching my destination. Now a mummy myself – I wondered if I will ever let my children take a midnight train to a foreign place all by themselves at the age of 19…. Am I just paranoid? :S

Anyway, like many others, we went to the station to take some photos and bid farewell! Smile

Bye memories! Smile 

 

Anyone need a saxophonist?

My little boy was born with a half collapsed lung and needed breathing machines to save his life.

But he has come a long long way – strong lungs now! Smile God is good! Smile

Xi En & his many entertaining ways

It’s interesting how toddlers grow up. They do those things which are silly but oh-so-cute! Smile 

Xi En never fails to amuse me – especially with his cheeky look!

Some of his moments:

When his Po Po was going overseas, Xi En decided to help out… by packing himself in:

suitcase 

Imitating his Po Po in combing his ermm.. precious little hair. Good effort though! Smile
