The Missing Yvette

I have something to confess……

Her new water bottle

Her new water bottle

I realized when we were out for the whole day; Yvette could finish her bottle of water. So I headed Kiddy Palace near my home to get her a bigger water bottle.

Yvette love to explore in the mall. I always let her down and try to shop within an eye distance away from her. But today…. While I was clearing the mess she had created, I LOST her.

My world almost collapses!!!

I searched HIGH and LOW in the toy department for her. (Kiddy Palace in TPY is break down to 3 sections. We were in the toy department.) BUT I just couldn’t find her. My HEART was racing and I started to panic. I felt my throat was choked, my body shiver and I couldn’t even breathe. I dashed out of the toy department and try to search for her.

A kind lady could tell from my action that I am looking for my child; she signed to me and told me a little girl had walked across the toy department toward the section opposite.

As I walked into the department and saw Yvette was trying to walk back to the toy department. I quickly grasped hold of Yvette and the tear welled up in my eyes rolled down on my face.

This is so SCARY.

  1. OMG, thats very scary.

    This is also one of the reason why I put Chloe on harness (even though I get nasty stares). Chloe is very independent and will roam everywhere without sense of fear, harness give me a sense of security I need.

  2. Sam,

    At Bintan!!!! That is even more scary.


    My BIL suggested (harness) to me too.

    I never expect Yvette get sooooo comfortable in Kiddy Palace that we always go. She knows some of the cashier and sales personnel there too.

  3. Yea, i dunno how husb can do that (??!!!!). Luckily, my boy was already 6yo. He stood at one of the lift lobbies n studied the people there. Many people approached him bc he was sobbing away but he refused to talk to them(all those “angmohs”), then he saw a family w kids that looked like singaporean, n he actually asked them to help him find his room(he remembered the room number). Well, thats what the lady told us – we took the same ferry back.
