Hide And Seek

Jayden calls me “jiu jiu”. That’s “uncle” in Chinese.

At 3 years old, Jayden doesn’t have a lot of friends of his own to play with. That’s why everytime a new visitor comes around to my sister’s place, he becomes very excited. So excited until he sometimes abandon his own dad.

I am never good with kids. I don’t like them, they don’t like me. But Jayden just adores me.
He adores me so much he even drew a portrait of me.

Ok fine, he made me look like a happy version of the ghost from Ju-On.
But I’m pretty sure he still likes me.

On my last evening in New Zealand, I took Jayden out to this massive supermarket called Woolsworths. It was near closing hours so there wasn’t much customers around except for us.
I was holding Jayden’s little hand when suddenly I just felt a bit mischevious and decided to play an impromptu game of hide-and-seek with the 3-year-old.

First, it was all fun and games. I hid behind the shelves, but Jayden was smart enough to spot where I was going.
So I ran a little bit further.

And hid a little bit faster.

Until I heard somebody cry.

At least I bought him chocolates in the end lah.

This is somewhat of an old entry. The only reason I post it up is because my sister passed me the memory card that I left at her place in NZ.
Anyway, I just got back from KL. Had heaps of fun. 🙂 More on that later.

    And you have the balls to post your stupidity in your blog??!!!! It’s not even cute!! It’s just plain stupid!!!! If I’m his mother, I would have severe our blood relation and throw you into a dungeon!!!

  21. Woolsworths in NZ is really HUGE. Most Woolsworths here in Europe are quite small, but we have Tesco, Asda and even Carefour which are about the size of Woolsworths there…. and some even bigger.
    I like Jayden looks really decent..hehe…not like his JIU JIU….nasty.

    “ni you mei you post youtube!!??
    ni you mei you post youtube!!??”

  24. Princess Shin, I know I know. I was terrified everytime I lost touch with my parents when I was young.
    JoyceTheFairy, Fai’s nephew is Jayden and your middle name is Kirsten! So much coincidence!
    Angelina, good idea but my sis and her kids aren’t in New Zealand right now. They’re back in Kuching.
    Knox, ain’t my son. 🙂 But I still adore him nonetheless.
    yl, I thought he saw me but he didn’t. You know, kids lah. 🙂
    desperate addict, procreate? yes but err… you mean with each other ah?
    Angela, I’m not talking about New Zealand, I’m talking about Jayden.
    Me, too bad you’re not my sister.

  25. cute cute cute…
    if only i have a son like him..
    haha…since ur sis can hv such cute son, there shudnt be a prob for u too..
    jiayou jiayou!!

  26. Lost kids look funny.
    When my brothers don’t listen to me and run too fast. I hide one corner or behind some tress and they’ll come running back with the worried look. Both never fails to make me laugh. 😛

  27. Kids are like that. They cry at the smallest things. You could have hid behind an aisle and when he comes toddling by, shout BOO! Actually don’t have to buy chocolate, just hug him and tell him to give you a wet kiss.

  28. when he grows up he’s gonna play hide and seek with you in ‘Giant’… put it up on you tube and blog about it.. and people are gonna leave comments on how cute his jiujiu is~
    so comell!!! he has such an angellic smile~
    dont make him cry la.. so “xim tia”…>.

  29. meaner you la kenny hahaha…bully small kid but funny at the same time to see you enjoying the whole hide-and-seek..it would be terrifying for me too if i hv to run around looking for jiu jiu with all the tall shelves around me hehehe…make sure when he grows a little older and things start to make sense to him, he don’t come kicking your ass for making him terified + cry hahhaa

  30. One day Kenny….in your near future lifetime as a dad, I foresee, you’re gonna lose your son one day in a supermarket. The blur daddy you will be. Choi choi choi…of course you’ll find him at last.

  31. Did you show the video clip to Jayden? And explain to him, “Nah, Jayden.. These are bad people.. Don’t play with them next time…”

  32. It’s called tunnel vision. Happens during adrenaline rush e.g panic situation. Which was why Jayden couldn’t see you.
