- Cinnamon powder which I sprinkle a bit into his food sometimes for some flavour :)

*very affectionate child, loves to come to our face and kiss us, of course this comes with lots of saliva hehhehe... but it's so heartwarming..
*understands 'NO' when i scold him, he will stop whatever he is doing and look at me innocently, and starts babbling to me to try to get out of it... sometimes he will cry when I scold him...
*loves to pull my hair, which annoys me, and I will look right into his eyes and say 'NO'! He gets it most of the time and lets go of my hair
*very kepoh (busybody) fella... when he is drinking milk/makan and someone speaks or laughs, he will turn to look
*loves to stare at strangers outside (especially ladies), and once he gets hold of their attention, he will start babbling to them.. and naturally they will say, 'oh so cute... comel (cute)...'

*likes to walk side to side holding the sides of his cot/playpen (like a crab heheheh)
*holds the sofa arms and climbs up and sits on it (real stuntman...)
*loves to go out kai kai...
*always stares at us and our food when we are eating and moves his mouth and tongue...
*cannot be left out- when I am watching tv or talking to someone, he will put his face in front of me and start babbling or just looks at me for attention... hehe
