However, out of a sudden, when Mommy was talking to Papa, Mommy felt the container being strucked at and the milk spilt all over. Everything happened so fast. Juan Or's and Mommy's shorts were wet, the bed frame where Juan Or's head rested on while breastfeeding also had milk and there was milk all over the floor. What a mess! And Papa was angry with Mommy for not taking precaution and Mommy was very angry with Juan Or because he was still able to struck the container down even though Mommy was holding it.
Mommy scolded Juan Or. And Mommy can't help lecturing him about the spilt milk. Juan Or seemed to sense Mommy's anger. It all showed on his face - long, dull-looking face, sullen of sorts. And just before Mommy left the room, Mommy turned at Juan Or again and scolded him "Stupid!" (but later Mommy regretted saying it) and Juan Or jumped in startle.
This leads to another developmental milestone of Juan Or at 7 months of age - he is able to differentiate and react to friendly or unfriendly voice tone. He knows whether or not someone is scolding him.

The first 3 Bs remain.
The 4th 'B' for bite because Juan Or bites Mommy's nipple when breastfeeding!
And the 5th 'B' for bising because Juan Or makes noise when Mommy's attention goes away from him, even if it is just for a short while!
(See the picture but imagine the sound!)

Along the way, Papa and Mommy stopped by the many Christmas deco spots in Midvalley Megamall. Unfortunately, Papa forgot to bring his proper camera, so had to make do with Mommy's handphone camera. Here are the results:
Mommy has no idea why this time the photos can be rotated in Mommy's computer file but remains unrotated when uploaded here :-( Mommy is at wit's end over how to solve this problem!
Mommy also got this advertorial Christmas story book for Juan Or. This colourful story book can be obtained free from Midvalley's leaflet booth near the BreadTalk choo-choo-train. The notable thing about this story book lies in how the advertisements of the sponsors are all weaved together to form a coherent story. It is the story of how a pair of siblings were brought by a clown who was asking for direction to go set up a Christmas carnival. So it was at the carnival setting where the advertorial elements were inserted. And finally the story ends with the siblings waking up from sleep feeling like the carnival was real and yet was a dream.
Finally, Papa and Mommy reached the Scholastic Book Fair. The booth was not very big. The books sold were all children books. Price-wise? Some were very cheap, some were OK price, but some not so. So, these are the books Mommy bought for Juan Or:
(Each book costs only RM1! Cheap and good!)
(The book on the left costs RM2 and the right RM3.)
(The book which was on the left is now bottom and vice-versa.)
(Each book costs RM3.)
(This baby board book series is under MPH's "Buy 3 for the price of 2" promotion. Each book is tagged at RM9.90. Under this promotion, each book costs RM6.60....considerably cheap judging from its size, vivid colours, cute and large illustrations, and it being hard bound.)
(Mommy first saw these books in The Curve's MPH but had no time to buy them. Each book has 400 pieces of reusable stickers. Each book costs RM19.90.)
(The inside of the sticker book. Good activity book for pre-schoolers to play with stickers and at the same time enriching their vocabulary.)

When you need a break, what comes closest to your favorite way to spend some free time?
and the option answers go like this:
- Hanging out with a good book
- Visiting with friends
- Something physical: biking, hiking, etc
- Catching up on a hobby
- Um, what is this thing you call "free time"?
Mommy thought for a while. For all the first four option answers, Mommy had not been doing them at all ever since Juan Or was born. Probably the only 'good book' that Mommy hanged out with was "reading theses", but heck that was WORK! "Sleep" seems the most appropriate answer but there's no option for that. So Mommy thought probably "sleep" doesn't count as free time here....probably "sleep" is a necessity and NOT "free time". So Mommy decided to check the last answer and click "Vote". And guess what? Out of 53 respondents so far, the majority vote (58%) goes to Um, what is this thing you call "free time"?
Hmmmm.....looks like Mommy is not alone after all.......
