Wishing Dai Bee best of luck in getting to his school’s basketball team.  He tends to get nervous playing around those (who he thinks) are better than him. According to him, he has a fairly good chance he’s only joining the frosh team.

Every tournament, Ah Lo’s teammates vote for the two kids to be the team captain for the team. This week, Ah Lo is the team captain. At the end of the tournament, he would give out a line or two to motivate the team.  He’s not the best player in the team, but he took the job seriously and kept the team upbeat and positive during this tournament. The team came back with a 2 wins and 1 loss.

Good job, Ah Lo. I’m so proud of you!

‘Tis the season of basketball which means crazy weekend schedule again. Ah Lo’s first tournament of the season happened today. 2 out of 2 losses. The team was half asleep playing the 1st game, and got crushed the 2nd game. Hope they will do better tomorrow. I do notice that Ah Lo has more play time today, which is a good thing. He’s gradually improving, but still need to play a little bit more aggressive. IMG_9858-1

The brothers performed at Onlok Senior Home yesterday. It was a Friday, so we couldn’t get too many people to participate. Dai Bee played most of the time with 5 songs while Ah Lo played 2. One of the songs Dai Bee played was a Chinese song (月亮代表我的心). The seniors clapped with the tune and sang along. It was the sweetest thing to watch. Glad the boys are much more comfortable performing for others now. It’s such a special gift to be able to play music. They just don’t know it yet.

Ah Lo completed his 4th triathlon today without Dai Bee (who’s at camp): 200-yard swim, 6-mile bike, 1-1/4 mile run.

TOTAL ELAPSED TIME: 55:58, with 3:36 and 1:18 transitioning times, respectively.

Boys are doing their 3rd triathlon today. Dai Bee was a bit hesitant at first, felt he wasn’t quite ready. He had the earlier time this year because of his age group. For some reason, both the boys are doing the same thing for their age groups this year: 200-yard swim, 6-mile bike, 1-1/4 mile run. Another one awaits in July!

This time joining the fun is my 6-year old niece and 2-year old nephew! My niece has the fastest swim time and my nephew won the race for being the youngest (and cutest!) So proud of all these triathletes!

When NBA Finals, game 1 is on (Cleveland Cavaliers vs Golden State Warriors), dinner in front of TV is allowed. This means dinner will just be one plate fits all (except I have to make 4 plates)!

At Dai Bee’s first fencing competition. Boys have been taking fencing for some time now, and this was his first competition. He’s probably the only one doing this the first time since I was the only one taking pictures while the other parents were sitting there chilling. It was pretty low key, not much yelling or cheering. We spent a good chunk of time watching and waiting. He wasn’t the last one on the rank, so I take it that’s a pretty good?!IMG_7270

Mr. Piggy’s nephew is turning 2 today. After the fencing competition, we went to his house to celebrate with him. I made this minion piñata for him (or for his older cousins). He had no clue of what the game was, but managed to swing with his bat. The kids (my boys) had more fun at it than he did! IMG_7274 (1)DSC_0552 (1)

A crazy busy day, starting off with waking up early to bake these scrumptious BBQ pork buns. You won’t find the fatty BBQ pork inside these homemade ones (unlike the store bought ones). Now that I got the recipe for these soft fluffy dinner rolls down (will share recipe later), you can pretty much do whatever with them. IMG_7057

Dai Bee has music (choir) competition in the morning, two placement tests (math and language), and fencing late afternoon. Ah Lo has two basketball games today as well. Now you know why I baked these, just to get the boys off the right feet for a busy day ahead.

Being the gym commissioner for Ah Lo’s team tournament, one of the responsibility is to find the scorekeeper for all the games. At 10:30pm the night before, I was still scrambling to find one. I volunteered Mr. Piggy, so he got busy learning how to be a scorekeeper via youtube that night. LOL.

When the time came, I just asked Dai Bee to take over the job since he’s familiar with the game rules. He sat down and poked at the machine. Next thing, he was there all day long and kept going for the next 8 games. Great he can earned the extra cash while enjoying the games.
