My god daughter Isabelle

I have to confess that I do not have much affinity with kids. I felt disturbed when I hear them cry and I am annoyed when I see them throwing tantrum. I get impatient with the antics of some kids bullying their ever doting parents of grandparents. Once while en route from Narita to Singapore, I almost felt like slapping a boy seating behind me for kicking on my seat every few minutes despite me telling the mother off.

One happy family.
Fate has it that I meet Isabelle for the first time last night and I like her instantly. Or I should say our first meeting was when Isabelle was still in her mother’s womb. Then I was supposed to visit her during her first few days into this world but other priorities and busy schedule took over, delaying our meeting for almost a year although I met up with her mom Shanish occasionally. I was supposed to check out the Chinese name for her too but I must say that my Chinese is half a bucket of water that I am afraid of giving out the wrong name so it did not materialize.

Isabelle just refused to look away from the xiao long bao infront of her
Isabelle and I love the same food – Xiao Long Bao from Shanghai Restaurant in JW Marriott Hotel. Last night, she alone took a few. Out of the blue, I asked Shanish if I can be Isabelle’s god mom and she happily agreed but with the condition that I must supply little Isabelle with xiao long bao forever, duh! For a note, Isabelle’s papa, Yit Boon is a chef that specializes in making dim sum and xiao long bao so it I don’t think I will be having any issue with supply. And I’ve never felt so happy holding a baby and Isabelle is the first. Besides that, I didn’t expect I will be good at handling them but I did, making Shanish’s sister, Regine kept making that remark that my motherly instinct is all out – a body language that can’t be hide, though I am not going to budge from my philosophy of not having my own child. 

Instant affinity and liking
Welcome to the family, my lovely little Isabelle.
