:: hijacked ::

Hubby gave me an iPad as a birthday gift early this year. I'm not a gadget freak but I can never thank my hubby enough for that lovely, practical prezzie. My pinky iPad has been my loyal companion, day and night. You see, I'm such a lone ranger. I have my breakfast alone almost every time either at the indoor foodcourt or row of stalls we called 'the Riverside'. It sounds pathetic but that is the truth.

Previously I felt a bit awkward especially when tables around me were full with people who came in groups so I usually grabbed a copy of the Sun as reading material. There were also moments when I purposely played with my mobile phone to avoid stare from others who were sitting opposite me. Yeah, I don't mind eating alone in public area but it did feel awkward sometimes and I don't want to be misinterpreted as a looser for not having any friend. Apart from not having many friends (yes that part is still true) I personally like being alone in the morning while enjoying my meal rather than listening to gossips or disturbing news. Don't get me wrong friends, I don't want to be avoided but there are times when I want to be alone and times when I'm in the mood to socialising, especially in the morning.

When I'm alone these days, I'm not entirely alone actually because my iPad is always with me as a companion. Not only in the office and also while driving, it also accompanies me at home especially when I'm nursing Ady. I love my iPad. It is solely mine but not until last Saturday night because my iPad was hijacked!

*jeng jeng jeng*

...and the hijacker is no other than my lil munchkin o_O







Since few months ago I noticed Ady staring at the iPad screen ocassionally when I was reading or scrolling the browser but he never interested to touch it until last Saturday night. I was nursing him on the bed as usual and reading something on the iPad which was placed behind him so he was not distracted of the light when he suddenly stopped, turned, looked at the screen and then touching and moving his hand on the screen. I thought he just did it accidentally but I put the screen off and placed him back to the usual position so he could continue drinking milk. After few minutes I opened the iPad back to continue my activity but Ady also stopped and did the same thing as before. Whoa. That time I knew he was interested to play so I opened an app that I have installed for him just-in-case-but-now-useful Piano for Babies and he started moving his hands on the screen. He was excited and kept moving his hands because he must have realised that the movements created sounds. He continued playing, returned to me, played again and it went on for few times until he decided to stop and sleep.

That night I knew my iPad was no longer mine alone but I'm more than glad to share it with my own lil baby bambam. Playing iPad at 5 months old. Ahhh kids these days!


* You're such a cutie and a clever boy Ady Rifqi. Mama and Papa are proud of you. We love you more than everything in this world. Mwahhhh! *

Wendy: Yes he is such a clever boy. On the opposite side, mommy now has an 'extra helper' to distract the baby. Yeay! ;-)

Ady tak masukkan itu iPad ke dlm mulutnye ke?! Kalau aariz, habislah basah iPad itu! Huhuhu... Comey sgt Ady with that cool fever thingy on his forehead! Geram! Nak geget boleh?!! Hehe.. :p

Wawerk: so far dia memang tak masukkan dalam mulut maybe dia tau ipad untuk main guna fingers je sebab dia tgk aku pakai hari2. Dia tau gak nak slide tangan kiri kanan atas bawah sbb dia observe aku buat kot. Hehe.

Fila: dah baik dah demam tapi still flu & batuk sket. Haritu tak dapat jumpa aunties sbb tak sihat...next time keyh.
