Weekend Fun in the Pool & HFM


Since we bought this pool, we have been filling it up for the kids to play every weekend. They simply love the time in the pool till I have to drag them out!


Kieran couldn’t wait to even change into his swimming gear! He stripped down to his underwear!


The water level was not even full yet but they just couldn’t wait and jumped in! It takes quite a while to fill the pool up eventhough my water is pump pressured! Good thing I can recycle the water to water my beloved plants!

Current Update

Kylie has caught the HFM (hand, foot & mouth) virus. Apparently there’s an outbreak now. There has been quite a number of cases reported so far. Today is the first day that her symptoms showed. I noticed the spots on her bum and feet this morning when I showered her. It’s a good thing I shower her every morning, otherwise the maid will not notice such things. Unfortunately it’s a virul attack, there is no medication to counter this disease, just medication for the sores in her mouth and fever medicine. There is no sign of fever as yet and she’s still as cheerful and active as ever! Keeping fingers crossed but will still give her the fever medicine tonight to help her sleep better should the spots and ulcers get worse.

I am really worried that Kieran will catch the virus too as we will be leaving for Hong Kong in 2 weeks time! Oh pulllleeeezzz let him get well by then if he does catch it! According to the doctor, the child should get well in 5 days. So really feeling panicky now!

  22. Wahliaooo… so many HFMD cases in KL.

  23. Hi…bloghopping. I heard that HFM can only be transferred from fluid to fluid so unless Kylie sneezes into Kieran’s face or they share food/drink, then it is not so easy to get transferred.
    I am also going to HK in 2 wks! maybe we will be on the same plane! I will lookout for K&K.

    i don’t see any signs on Kieran, i think Kylie got only a very mild strain that’s y she recovered so fast and i guess it was not strong enough to pass on to kieran! what?? wow! hope to see ya too! *jumping in excitement!*

  24. Get well soon Kylie!
    On the bright side, the pool looks awesome! I so want to jump in with them too!

    hahaha..very small nya the pool…now got some holes ledi! 😦
