I go to Kindergarten

4th Sept 2007

This morning, we went to the kindergarten nearby to inquire about our application, since we didn’t hear from then over the whole summer holidays. The director said if we want, I could go to the afternoon session right away. Papa nodded instantly and Mommy raised her shoulders (she didn’t want me to go). And I was gone checking the toys there.

hzl200709040008.jpg Had fun in kindergarten. Papa said I took it much better than Mommy. Mommy misses you. Poor Mommy.

I didn’t see them when they sneaked in later to pick me up. I wanted to stay there longer but they say everybody is going home. Enuf fun for today. And there’s always tomorrow.

My Top Songs

A close-up8th August 2007

When I ain’t busy coloring or photographing, I bug mommy; and papi too, to sing songs from A Child’s Treasury of Nursery Rhyme book. I just love the songs from that book. BTW.: By the look of the book, one could see that it´s heavily used. Worth every cent! Some of the songs I can sing them myself. Mommy would ROFL when she hears that, but papa has been very supportive and was able to maintain himself.

So, here is my list – if Mommy doesn´t get it all mixed up or forget a few of them. Some of them are not from that book.

  1. Goosey Gander
  2. Wee Willie Winkie
  3. Humpty Dumpty
  4. Rock-a-bye Baby
  5. Papaku Pulang –malay nursery song
  6. Jack and Jill or I call it Jack and Girl
  7. Sing a Song of Sixpence
  8. Mary Had a Little Lamb
  9. Grand Old Duke of York
  10. Old King Cole
  11. Hush Little Baby or I say Goat Runs Away
  12. Diddle, Diddle, Dumpling, My Son John or Trousers On
  13. I Saw You in The Orchard
  14. Baa, Baa Black Sheep
  15. Georgie Porgie
  16. Pease Porridge Hot
  17. Frère Jacques – I can sing and mix this w the English version Brother John
  18. Ride a Cock Horse to Banbury Cross
  19. Ring a Ring o’ Roses
  20. Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
  21. Alle Meine Entchen – german nursery rhyme
  22. Hot Cross Bun
  23. Smiling Girls Rosy Boys
  24. Dr. Foster

Smile 🙂

My parents are contemplating the career path I would take when I grow up. Maybe I would be a great photographer like Ansel Adam and the like?

I did finish one roll film with this camera. However, not long after that the camera fell apart. Mommy was a bit sentimental about it; it was her first camera. She hid it somewhere later.

Plague of “mum”.

On Monday when I woke up, I started calling Mommy mum. Out of the blue. Just like that. She was wondering where I got tht from. Papa said that I have been calling him “pap” since a few days. Mommy didn´t like tht “mum” somehow and esp not at the end of every sentence. OK mum. First she didn´t wanna say anything abt it and papa said it will go away in two days. But at noon she keeps correcting me. I didn´t understand why. Weird mum.

She said: “I am mama”.

I answered: “Ich bin Zuleikha”

Sunday walk in the city

hzl200707080007.jpg8th July. 2007

We decided to go for a walk on Sunday afternoon, which we didn´t do tht often. Freising , for a reason unknown to us, has alot of bear´s statues especially in the pedestrian zone.

Chesse bear. yum yum.

hzl200707080013.jpgEven bear in Brazilian jersey is here.

hzl200707080014.jpgOne more.

hzl200707080016.jpgAnd one more.

hzl200707080017.jpgAfraid that I would be too tired to walk home, we decided to take the bus. As the bus was leaving the bus station, it was pouring and all the way home. We were wet like a cat. True enuf; I fell asleep on my plate while having dinner.  I protested a bit tho, when mommy picked me up and brought me to bed. Soon I was in lala land.

Munich Zoo

hzl200707040011.jpg4th July 2007.

Today after breakfast we decided to go to Munich zoo. It wasn’t planed at all. As soon as mommy agreed to papa´s suggestion we all hopped in the car. It was raining on the way to Munich and still was when we arrived there. After a few confusions on where the entrance of the zoo is, we finally made it.

This way papa.

hzl200707040022.jpgWhen we were at the jungle section a small bird suddenly hopped on my head. I was crying for help.

hzl200707040023.jpgPapa took the bird on his finger.

hzl200707040025.jpgThank you, papa

hzl200707040028.jpgThe girl wanna pet the bird too.

hzl200707040032.jpgSo nice …

hzl200707040044.jpgThere is much more to see but it´s kinda late for us. So we decided to head home.

KIKA’s Anniversary Song

In conjunction with its 10th anniversary, KIKA (Kinder Kanal) – children channel, airs its birthday song almost everyday. So every so often I would sing it esp the chorus:

Wie schön, dass es den KIKA gibt,
bei allen Kindern sehr beliebt,
Wir gratulier’n zum 10. Jahr,
mach weiter so, denn du bist wunderbar.

Sth like; how nice there is KIKA, loved by all kids, we congratulate you on the 10th year, keep up because you are great.
