New 'Do!

I brought Jao to the Kids Salon this afternoon for his very first haircut. He was okay when we got there. We sat him in this little car chair and he was having fun "driving". When the salon staff placed the cape around him and began cutting, ayan na, all hell broke lose! He was wild the whole time! He's a pretty strong little boy, I tell you. And even after his haircut (which looks soooo cute btw), we couldn't get him to be still. It was only when we left the salon and went to 'Toys R Us' that he calmed down.

This is how he looked before:

And this is him now:

Which do you like better? :)

My MIL treated my SIL Ria and myself to a weekend trip to Bangkok. I thought that it would be a good R&R. Rest? Nah. Recreation? Yes. We were able to tour 2 temples, shop for cheap clothes (just got to go back for those Wacoals!!), and the highlight, eat super cheap but really good street food! Thanks, Mom!

Unfortunately, none of us brought a camera. Thank goodness for Ria's camera phone. You can view our photos here.
