Photo Hunt - Fake

When Jaymes was much younger, he used to think up many excuses, even up to all sorts of tricks so as to get his way. Wonder who he takes after? :)

His most frequent and famous trick was to fake an urgent need to pee. The above photo was taken at Sentosa Island, a famous tourist attraction in Singapore. We took some time to coax him to pose in front of the fountain. He had to do this just when I was snapping the photo!

And there were the faked illnesses whenever he felt like skipping school!


Jaymes in the fake Batman suit that my brother bought for him in China. He loved it so much, he wore it everyday. When I went up on The Pyramid TV game show, he wore it to the studio shoot. The game show host, audience and TV crew were so tickled by him!

Another time he wore it to Jakarta and Cianjur, Indonesia. When the customs officers at the airports saw this fat and short Batman, they couldn't help laughing out loud! And of course Jaymes received lots of candies for his cuteness! :)

  3. Your photos and stories about Jaymes caused me to reflect on my sons' own ways on how they would do similar things to get their own ways. With five boys there were many and each one had his own way. Now that they are all grown and on their own I cannot wait for the grandchildren to walk in the same foot steps. Thank You

  8. The Pyramid Game, i remember it wasn't an easy game to play. But I was not a regular follower of the show.

    The Batman suit is indeed enticing. :)

  9. oceanskies,

    Jaymes as a fat and short Batman was hilarious!

  11. I think thatr story is similar to children the world over, certainly reminds me of my daughter, the only difference is that as far as i know she is not a super hero...

  12. He's too cute..!
    I would have given him loads of candies too..!

    ReplyDelete

  16. I love the first picture. So natural.

    Jaymes looks so cute drinking milk with the batman suit. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh, you described that so well. Those are precious pictures. I enjoyed it...

    ReplyDelete
  18. Great idea for the theme ECL. Jaymes is adorable despite this faking habit.

    ReplyDelete
  19. haha. Yes. Whenever we are in restaurant, and if my son doesn't like his food, he will fake wanna go toilet.

    Hmm...

    ReplyDelete
  20. Haha..Batman drinking out of a nen nen bottle...kakkakakka..

  21. Judy,
    grrrrr...... lucky you live far away, or else I chase you with my chopper! hahaha.....

    Jaymes' character is more like his Dad - dense, gentle, caring, naive, trusting. I'm training him to be a businessman, some of these good traits are not good for a businessman.

    He does have my humour and wit. hehe....

  22. Hi Mark!
    hahaha.... it's tough being a super hero's Mom.

    ReplyDelete
  23. mamabok,
    hehehe..... Jaymes attracts a lot of attention when he was young, he had lots of cute actions. Pity I didn't have a video-recorder then. :(

  24. Hi Friday's child,
    Right, our kids are our pride and joy. :)

  25. tigerfish,
    I'm looking for those suits, then the whole family can have the picture taken! hehe....

    ReplyDelete
  26. May,
    Wow! Your mom so strict! Manja manja mah. I thought little girls are good at that. :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. chen,
    Yes, the first picture is very natural. He was really urgent and became a little fountain (imagine the little boy sprouting water display) right after the photo shoot. No time to rush him to the loo! The grass got some fertilising. hehehe.....

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hi jmb,
    hahaha.... yes. Jaymes is a charming fella, until now.

    ReplyDelete
  29. yenjai,
    Really!? Especially when you order too many vegies? :)

    Kids are so smart, they twist you round their little fingers.

    ReplyDelete
  30. eve,
    Yes, the childhood pic of Batman. He's also human wat. hehehe....

    ReplyDelete
  31. Haha, this is a fun entry! I can relate. But I wonder what James' reaction would be reading this? :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. LOL...your photo for this weeks theme made me laugh right out loud and giggle too! So typical of kids...someday he will regret you having this photo...lol...Thanks for visiting my photo today!

    ReplyDelete
  33. The first photo is such a childhood classic. My eldest son pulled this a few times while shopping.

    Happy Saturday, Biker Betty :)

  34. Love Jaymes in that Batman costume. He looks so cute while sleeping. Happy 070707 and have a good weekend :)

    P/s:
    Your link is still wrong as shown:
    http://http//eastcoastlife.blogspot.com
    It should be http://eastcoastlife.blogspot.com
    Haha... I wonder Why am I the only one who noticed that :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh geez, I had to laugh when I saw the first picture ! and the batman costume is very nice too !

    ReplyDelete
  36. Those are cute pictures, though! It's tricky when kids feign illness.

    ReplyDelete
  37. lynn,
    He said,"What the toot!" hahaha....

    He can't remember any of these! Probably faking, again! :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. powerstwinb,
    hahaha.... Jaymes has no memory of any of these. He laughs too when he saw these pictures. He cannot imagine himself so tiny though. :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hi biker Betty,
    Seems like the kids have been teaching one another by spreading this trick around. :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Hi criz lai,
    Yes..... Happy 070707! It comes only in a thousand years!

    Thanks for your keen observation. Need to fix that soon.

    ReplyDelete
  41. mama bear June.
    hahaha... thanks. I'm going over to yours. :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. hi meeyauw,
    Yes, Jaymes can have some really silly excuses just to skip school.
    He didn't get his way though. :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Why did the excuses to stay home from school never work for me? Perhaps I was not the best actress.

    ReplyDelete
  44. That's why we take these photos - to embarrass them when they're older! Cute...

    ReplyDelete
  45. What a cute take on the theme, he is a cute little boy!
    Happy hunting and happy weekend

    ReplyDelete
  46. Awww...that "pee" photo is just too cute. LOL

    Happy Weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I think as I got to the bottom of the post where you say he got lots of candy for being so cute that I had to agree he must be learning lots from his mum.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I do things to get away with stuff too, like I put my paws over my nose and look really sorry before I get told off, it works every time.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Cute, cute, CUTE!!

    How clever. Boy, I had a tough time coming up with something fake. Y'all seem to make it look so easy for the theme.

    Happy Hunting.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Oh...that was very imaginative...you figured out the theme well! It was a hard one!

    ReplyDelete
  51. ha haah..love the first fake pix.

    That's funny!

    ReplyDelete
  52. That's great!! Great take on the theme.
    You're a genius!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Congratulations!! I have heard news from other fellow bloggers that you have clinched 4 awards at the Ping.sg award event.

    Cheers!!

    Go Eastcoastlife go!

    ReplyDelete
  54. That's so cute and funny. Might be a sign that you'll have an actor for a son someday. :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. The suit is fake but the cuteness is real. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  56. srp,
    Jaymes didn't get his way most of the times when he faked his illness. He was a good actor but his Mom was too smart for him. hehehe.....

    ReplyDelete
  57. amazing gracie,
    hahaha.... I didn't mean to embarrass Jaymes with these pictures. Little kids are just so cute!!!!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  61. Hooting anni,
    Thanks. :)

    Just look around you, there are lots of things, people or event that you can associate with the theme each week. Not that difficult dearie.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Thank you hummie,
    I try to do a different take on each theme, if possible. :)

    ReplyDelete
  63. oceanskies,
    Thanks so much. Thanks for your support.

    ReplyDelete
  64. heart of rachael,
    haha.... yes, it seems Jaymes is keen to get into the entertainment industry. He appeared in a couple of TV dramas and has gone for another TV audition on Friday. :)

    ReplyDelete
  65. Hi vader's mom,
    Your Vader is cute too! hehe....

    ReplyDelete
  66. What a creative take on our fake theme. I think all children have faked things as they were growing up.

    Have a wonderful day!
