Lil I finally cut his first tooth..

It is the teething period.

It might not be the worst but I guess having 2 kids before really help to train me for sleepless nights like these. 

Week 1 and 2 of May: 
On a good night sleep, lil I could already sleep from 10pm to 530am in which he will wake for milk and will continue his sleep after the feed.

But these few weeks, Lil I was literally napping throughout the night as he will sleep close to 10pm and will wake at 2am perhaps. On these nights he would jus drink his milk and continue to snooze till 530am then which he will definitely wake up to play and have another night feed. He co sleeps with me and Dora so any little fiddling of the bolsters will usually wake me up. I'm now such a light sleeper. Then he will sleep at around 630am when my alarm is going to ring. I will then quickly take another 10-15min snooze as Isa is using the toilet.

Then during work, my helper text me to tell me Lil's I cut his his first tooth! Yay!! 

Week 3 of May: 
Just when we thought things might get a little better, lil I was literally waking every 
2 hours and this continue for another 2 nights! Imagine I was a zombie at work. But it was not easy as my partner was on leave so I had to be around.
On Wednesday, lil I was running a high fever! It was already 39.4 when I brought him to the clinic. Thank goodness he was  all fine by Friday afternoon. Only the flu and cough symptoms are still around.

Phew. What a week. 
How has yours been?

Can u spot the little tooth? Hehehe

Dinner was soon served beginning with..
Homemade yam ring with Kyoto Pork Ribs ($30)

With Yam Ring, which is crispy on the outside yet soft and creamy on the inside, it complements the sweet yet savoury Kyoto Pork Ribs perfectly.

they should just name it Yum Ring.. hurhur.

Ubin lala Beehoon ($18)

Reminisce of Gu Ma's childhood at Pulau Ubin. Where simple food bring joy to everyone as long as it is enjoyed as a family. Tasty rice vermicelli served with fresh lala. Sure to tantalize everybody's taste buds! Get a taste of Pulau Ubin without the pesty mosquito!

I can do bottoms up with you on the soup here.

Crispy BeanJal ($12/$18)

Brinjal? Who are you kidding? Our friends on our same table was still asking if its "meat" together with this dish of four seasons beans. And it turns out to be a often neglected vegetable - brinjal!

I remember quite clearly that my ah lao who dislike brinjal gave a double thumbs up for this dish!

Shrimp paste chicken mid joint ($15)

Yuan Yang Kai Lan ($12/$18/$24)

This is a personal favourite vegetable dish that I believe can turn your chilld into a vegetables lover. The deep fried leafy bits would just leaving everyone, not just children, asking for more!

From Gu Ma’s private kitchen, this traditional dish is what Gu Ma grows up with. Power packed with wholesome goodness, this nutritious soup is being boiled for 6 hours with salted fish head, Chinese Ham, Pork Ribs, Peanuts and fresh Bean Curd. Excellent soothing and comfort soup for all!

Salted Egg Yolk Crab - seasonal price

Actually when this dish arrived, I was literally so full to the max but just cannot give this crab a miss! I am not a fan of salted egg but this dish made me think twice.

And after all the main course, a variety of desserts were served.

Gu Ma Dessert ($4)

Black Glutinous Rice with Ice Cream ($3.8)

My love for black glutinous rice just made me have some quiet sips from the spoon and very soon the bowl was empty.
