My Journey So Far... (Part 2)

Hello beautiful people! Thank you very, very much to all of you that came to visit my first blog post. Make me very happy!

Happy camper!
The last 2 days were very fun, mummy took me out a lot. I went to a charity event, a press conference and many places with lots of people. Needless to say, I am exhausted now. Hopefully, I can recover by the weekend, so I can go out some more. Hehe!

Exhausted Ashton!
Anyway, back to my journey...

When I turned 7 months old, my gums started to hurt a lot, and I was drooling a lot, too. Yes, I was teething and it was very uncomfortable. I did not understand why my mummy was so happy while I was in anguish. She kept telling everyone about my 2 little front teeth and seemed so proud of it. Bah! Then... my granny told me that with teeth, is when I can really start to enjoy beautiful food, and that got me excited! I started eating different things that made me really happy and forget about the pain. Ah, we live in a beautiful world with beautiful things - cereal, chicken, fish, fruits and my favourite, cookies! I was also quickly figuring out that there are just some things you can not stuff into your mouth...

Now that I am eating more and feeling stronger and more energetic, my mummy and papa started to bring me out a lot more.

I get a special car seat when we go out. Cool huh? It's like a spaceship!
I was going to lots of places where lots of people wanted to take pictures of me! How nice, but it only seems to happen when my mummy is around. I was confused by one thing though, most of the time, the photos are taken on the "red carpet", but sometimes, the carpet is not red, and sometimes, there is no carpet at all?!?

"Red Carpet" at my mummy's AmberChia Academy Graduation Show.
My mummy also took me to her workplace a couple of times and it was fun... it was a place that was higher up than everyone and we walk down this long walkway and everyone is looking at us, when we get to the end of the walkway, we stop and it seems like the flash on every camera in the room goes off. Hmm... Also, they call this walkway, a "runway", but nobody ever runs on it!!! This is a beautiful world, but it is a confusing one...

On the "runway" with my mummy and her students from AmberChia Academy.
When I turned 8 months old, I started putting on some weight and my cheeks were getting chubbier. I was also getting a lot of "cute" comments! It was a frustrating time, as people around me were treating me like the way I treat my toys! They were pinching my cheeks, grabbing my arms and making me stand on my feet, putting funny stuff on my head, and taking my toys away so I have to crawl to get to them, rather than just handing them to me!!!

I don't even like this colour, doesn't go with my denim!
Frustrating people holding me down just to get those funny glasses on me, because they thought it was "cute"!
But it was also an exciting time as I was developing some killer vocal chords! My aunts were very excited to teach me how to sing! They didn't know much about "hip-hop", so they worked on my "soprano" instead. Let me share a secret with you, it's hard! I almost choked while showing off to my mummy and her friends...

In my 9th month, I was really starting to figure things out. There is this cool toy that I was playing with this whole time that makes cool noises when I press on it and soothes my tooth aches when I chew on it, but wanna know what's even cooler, I can call my mummy and talk to her on it!!!

Now, I can talk to my mummy whenever I want.
Approaching my 10th month, I was really having the time of my life. See for yourself...

I get to drive a "real" car all by myself, and meet new "friends".
Mummy and papa were buying me new clothes and hats, which I love!
I learned to "swim".
Riding on a "real" reindeer! Mummy, I want one.
I also discovered this new place where only other little people like me play at, and it is FUN!!!
Training to walk properly on the "runway". They call this the "catwalk", because I was born in the year of the "tiger"?
I get to sit in cool "cars" that move backwards...
And, of course, order my own food!!!
I also begun to understand a lot more of my mummy's work. She goes to a lot of events, because nice people like to invite her; she takes a lot of photos, because cool people like taking photos of her; and she walks a lot, because places with lots of people like to see her walk on the "runway". But in my heart, it's because I think she is the most beautiful mummy in the whole wide world.  I love you very, very much, mummy!

I think I can get used to this. No matter what I say, people laugh and clap very loudly.
And, of course, it makes me quite popular with the girls, too!
Ain't she gorgeous?
Well, that kinda sums up my first 10 months. In 2 months time, when I've been on this beautiful world for 1 year (apparently it is a big deal), I can't wait to see what mummy and papa does for me. Anyone has any ideas? It has been an amazing journey for me so far. I really enjoy learning and meeting people. Please leave me some comments and follow my blog, so I can meet you and learn new things from you. If you have any fun events or places to go to, please invite me along, I'd love to tell the whole world about it on my blog.

My papa says you can email me at

I love this beautiful world, and I can't wait to meet all the beautiful people in it. Have a beautiful day and an amazing journey...

    I had the oppurtunity to hold on to this charming jovial boy during your mom's bday surprise celebration. Your mom was so proud when I pass it back to her after the show. You were lil back then but Now u have grown & time passes to see the apple of the eye putting smiles on your proud parents & everyone surrounding u with love. You are lucky to be blessed with tender loving care parents & people. Happy growing up!
