We bought 1 cup of cranberry + strawberry ice cream and 1 cone of strawberry for Audrey, cost us nearly RM20 for both.
We were not eating ice cream but fruits blended with ice indeed. Pretty disappointed... huh. However people on diet may like it as it's contain natural sweet from the fruits and with very little cream. Too bad, we got a sour strawberry that day..... :(
It's definitely not my cup of tea.

I was shocked and depressed when I was told by a friend of mine that another friend in our group is confirmed having breast cancer, stage 2. So a lunch has been organized last weekend just to get together again for some updates, main purpose was to raise our concern to our friend who will be undergoing operation to remove the cancer cell next week. In another words, one of her breast will be removed.
We were sad to hear her story on how she discovered her illness and besides giving her little advice; we also expressed our full support to her. To my surprise, she doesn’t looks depressed. In fact she is brave, accepted the fact what the God has arranged for her, optimistic (as she is still planning oversea trip when recover) and get her self prepared (look around for wig hair….she told us for those made by real hair cost more than RM1k). Perhaps her strong spirit is to believe appeared due to her supportive hubby.
Operation is just a process to remove the cancer cell, following up after that is chemotherapy which to most of them the toughest treatment for the cancer patient. No appetite, vomit, weak, drowsy, lost hair, etc. I pray for her to lessen her pain.
Until now she is still worrying her work as nobody could back her up during her medical leave. Ya…. she is “one leg kick” kind of employee to her company. I raised a little of my voice when I knew about her concern. The most important things for her to do now are to rest, rest and rest. Her worried will not help her to get rid of the bad cell and somehow may make things worst. This is what the company has given her after so many years of service (stressful working environment) despite no increment for past 4 years.
As a mother, her greatest concern is her only son. She is the tutor, mentor, inspector and reminder for her 10 years old son especially guiding him for school work. Her son is depending too much on her. We told her to let go the responsibility and it’s time for her son to be independent.
Women oh women, why we have so much of worries but none of it is for our health?

I'm in low battery mode after coming back from work everyday. So I will knock off in less than 3 minutes while the kids still actively playing on the bed with their soft toys.
And when come weekend, I like to charge myself with a long afternoon nap. Feel fresh after that, that's how I spend my weekend nowadays. Pretty boring but I like it as I can cut down outing which usually ended up at shopping mall. Save my hard earn money too .... ha ha! But mega sales is out there now.... "leg itch liaw".
Really looking forward for next month end for long holidays. Employee is like that mah.... hoping month end for salary and looking forward for holidays, yahoo!
Will try to update my blog more often.....hopefully! Don't worry, fore sure I'm following your blog even I hardly leave my comment here.

Working in a big company wasn't easy. It may takes you years to know every colleagues even though we are under the same roof for 9 hours per day. My department colleagues work very late almost everyday, they work until 8-9pm and some of them even come back on Saturday. I feel like an 'alien' while walking out from the office after working hours. Ha ha ha..... But I don't care, I also need my personal time for myself and my family. What a bad discipline employee am I, ..... don't let my boss know I'm a lazy staff!

Today marks the 1st day of another working journey in my life. I'm nervous but excited and happy as finally I was being hired again.... yahoo!
This is my 3rd company I'll be working for after graduated 11 years ago. Don't you think I'm a loyal employee? Hem hem....actually I'm lazy to find new job and don't really like to start all over again in a new environment.
I never ever think that I could travel so far from home to work at this new place which takes at least 40 minutes to reach by paying expensive toll fares and sometime it could take me 1.5 hours one way during bad traffic time.
I told hubby for so many years we were lucky as my previous company was not very far from home and due to advantages of reverse traffic that have saved my traveling time, I was the one responsible to send and pick up our daughters without him rushing back home from work. Stress release for him.
It's time to change the job routine since my new working place is far as compared to his office now. Hopefully we could manage to adjust our timing and reach home in time to fetch our daughters by either one of us. Another headache will be our dinner. No more home cook meals by then. Maybe need to cater or just 'ta pau' (take away) from food stall, at least for the first month.
Who dare say it's not difficult to be a working housewife, a working mother of 2 kids, a working women for a family....... Don't you think you guys are the luckiest man at home?

In fact I fell when I tried to pull her up when she missed her final step before reaching the floor. It happened in just a second, so I'm still scratching my head how it could happen.
I was suffering from the pain yesterday night .... *sob sob*. Couldn't walk.
I feel much better now after visiting the traditional massage doctor this morning. And my foot ended up being wrapped like a "dumpling". Thank god the sprained foot is not so serious as commented by the traditional doctor. Less walk will make the sprained foot recover faster.

I was surprised to see both of them brushing teeth that night, che che helping mei mei with full cooperation from mei mei . I stood outside the washroom to witnessed this "night in history".
Che che :''ok, now open your mouth big big. Yes....good"
Without much fussy, mei mei opened her mouth and let che che brushed her teeth.
Che che :"good, now say eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee" while brushing her front teeth.
Ha ha ..... Sometimes they could just click to each other nicely and peacefully without me acting like a referee to put up my whistle when any of them screaming for help.

Still no updates for my interview thus far ...... fingers still crossing tightly.
We enrolled Audrey to the holidays programme organized by My Montessori during this school holidays. We paid RM75 for one week activities which includes 2 outings, 1 baking, handcraft for father's day (oh...father's day around the corner), art painting, music and dance. And yesterday was their first outing to Fruits-land located at Semenyih. She came home with an exhausted face and complaint that both her legs were painful. Perhaps she walked too much and played too hard over there. However she was very happy and excited about the outing. Kept on telling me this and that, she nearly fall asleep inside her teacher's car on the way back.
As for Shannen, not sure whether I shall send her to the holidays programme for 2-3 years group this time. Pity her not getting chance to mix with other kids for play and fun. I only worried that she will be tagging along her sister and refuse to join her group. Em.... maybe shall give her a try next holidays.

No doubt I felt tension this whole week, but I'm also happy because at least this busy week gave me some hope of being hired (after sitting at home for months). Not sure whether I will get any offer from any of these companies, updates only by next week. Keeping my fingers crossed.

This is something rare that we don't see it so often. So I considered that we were lucky to have seen it that day.
Mummy bird was away to find food or perhaps building another bigger nest for the new member.

We are lucky that we could change our flight without any 'change fee' that usually air asia will imposed, that itself cost us few hundred RM. However we are still struggling to decide on a new date as we need to consider the different on the air fare that we need to top up. Or shall we just change to other destination since Bangkok's politic is not stable and war ending in no date. Headache.... headache......
Due to the AirAsia Free Seats promotion just kick off, overwhelming response has slower down their site many many many times. What a disappointment? No choice, got to keep on trying and trying........ wish me luck.

What will you see first thing in the morning after you wake up from your bed? Beside seeing your lovely husband/wife's face, beside seeing your baby who is still sleeping soundly, will you get to see the nature of earth with so much of green surrounding you? I do.
I could smell the fresh air when I open the window, see the birds swiftly and hear them chirruping. I often forecast the weather by looking at the sky, em....it's a sunny day again. I like to see the clouds covering part of the mountain far on the other side.
I always starts my day with a beautiful scene, how about you?

I need to buy flowers for prayer twice a month, hence I got a little excited to go to the flower stall at market and choose the most fresh and beautiful flower each time. I bought this 2 weeks ago, I quite like the color of this flower. Upon replacing water inside the vase, I just can't resist to snap this eye catching flower, it's so beautiful!

So finally, I decided to make a cheese cake for him. A homemade cheese cake from a 'half' skillful wife, and with a little help from his beloved daughter too.
And after about 2 hours sweating in the kitchen, finally the cheese cake is ready for the birthday man. Hope he likes it and we (mummy and the 2 angels) would like to wish you 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY'.

Ever since I was young (primary schooling age), I already helped out my mum on daily house chores. Floor sweeping & mopping, window glass cleaning, hang washed clothes, clean up dishes and etc. But I'm lucky to have 3 elder sisters whom will take up most of the tough house chores and left some simple one for me. But I got to absorb the work slowly when they get married one by one ..... sob* sob*
Audrey even said I'm like 'Cinderella', not that I will be granted a nice evening gown nor glass shoes from a fairy. It's simply because she saw me doing so many house work while herself and mei mei are like step sister to Cinderella, relaxing on sofa for cartoon. Ha ha......
However I find it quite important to train our children to 'love' doing house chores when they are young. At what age do you think it's a good start to train them? To me, I think as soon as they start messing up our living room with their toys, they should be taught to keep the toys for next play. Audrey does a good job most of the time after each play unlike her mei mei who hardly keep her toys. In fact we got headache to train Shannen to keep her toys.
Audrey also starts helping me to fold her own clothes (upon my request), wash non greasiness dishes when I'm busy cooking or baking and keep empty containers inside cabinet. She is my good helper sometimes.

In summary, this is all about the show :
Nanny 911 is a new unscripted series that follows a team of nannies armed with the dos and don'ts of child-rearing. Each nanny has a specific area of expertise (both series that we watched were handling by Nanny Deb, she is super), ranging from proper etiquette to controlling temper tantrums, and all are ready to help exhausted parents tackle the issues creating chaos in their home and whip their families into tip-top shape.
Looking at those family with more than 4 siblings, daddy working and leave all of them to mummy during day time, no maid, no helper. I'm kind of relief to compare myself with them. You can't imagine how bad was the situation until you watch the reality show. I told hubby if I were the mummy, probably I'll be holding 'rotan' all day long or I'll get mad, heart attack and die finally. But I think most of you are aware that physical punishment towards kids is illegal in overseas. Parents can only explain, consult and advise them to the "don'ts". How lucky are kids staying overseas..... he he!
Watch the show and you will know what I'm talking here. If you are interested, you may turn to Ntv7 channel every Monday 8.30pm.

How she could fell inside toilet? Auntie told me Shannen purged her milk therefore she carried her to the toilet and she went out to fetch some hot water to shower her. So most probably she fell due to the floor slippery when she walked inside the toilet by herself. She knocked on the edge of the water pail. So immediately auntie used hot towel to soothe her pain and swollen.
I don't know why this gal of mine suffered so much of pain from falling down. She have fallen from our bed when she was just 4 months old. In her aged of 7 months, she already had 5 times fallen down from our bed record. We took preventive action from one fell to another, but somehow we failed to stop her from falling.
We named her 'big sweet potato'. She easily fell when she runs, maybe due to her careless and weak stamina. You know, she fell and injured her teeth and lips twice last month, bleeding of course. Ai yo.... we thought of wrapping her with some protective cloth or put helmet on her at home to safe guard.
Mummy will pray for you and hope you will become healthy and free from pain from now on.

I'm not sure the purpose of 'checking in' to the fair which had created human jammed at the entrance. So I asked one of the event organizer crew who were helping to view the sms confirmation code and gave a sticker to paste on before entering the hall. But too bad, I still don't get him.
There were over 100 companies participated and set up their booth at the fair. I was happily going through booth by booth, checking with the staff for job opportunities. Hmmmm...... I would say the vacancies are mostly for field like engineering, finance & accounting, HR, sales & marketing. Oh no, I hardly find a company that are looking for procurement/purchasing, planning position &#@%. What a disappointment fair to me! Haizzzzz.......
However I just dropped in my CV to those company that I wish to work for, hoping they will still remember to call me when their are suitable vacancy in the future.
Finally early birds like us brought back some free gifts like bag, notepad, high quality ball pen, post it note, kiwi shoes polisher & disposable hand glove too .... ha ha.

We came here for dinner last Saturday. Audrey kept on saying that she wanted to eat sushi for dinner. And since we were at The Garden, so hubby suggested we tried this out. We passed by this Japanese restaurant twice last time and there were a long queue outside the shop. We are wondering why the restaurant got so many customers who are willing to wait to be seated. So we tried our luck hoping there wasn't long queue since it's only 6pm.
Finally we got our seat after waiting for 5 minutes. Too bad their air-cond were malfunction on that day, we could felt the 'warm' inside the restaurant. Audrey and Shannen were sweating during the dinner. Overall the foods were yummy, price also reasonable. I didn't snap any photo of the foods because of the atmosphere and I was busy using the menu to fan my gals beside filling up my stomach .... hungry ma.
However I would like to share with you this super yummy sushi that I ate for the first time and I think you could only find it from here. Crispy salmon sushi, the name of it. It serves with gravy at the bottom that tasted a little salty with light sour cream. There are mayonnaise and black sesame spread on the top of the sushi. Thumb up! It only cost RM12.80 per plate (6 pieces of sushi/plate).
After we finished our dinner, we found a long queue outside the restaurant. Now only we know why there is a crowd especially during weekend.

Or do you prefer to use safety box? How safe can a safety box be? My former company safety box was no longer safe when it was burglarized, all the foreign currency notes gone.
I think the safer way of avoiding lost is don't keep too much of valuable things at home, am I right?

I'm not sure whether you have such feeling like me. After reading those feminine magazine it does encourage me to love my body, to care about my skin, to treat my hair even better, to enjoy life and many more. I'm not only being revealed with the new fashion design, latest trend of handbag, new launch of skin product, customer review or feedback of current beauty product, more importantly I will also get their beauty advice and tips which I think its all time useful.
I truly enjoy the moment of reading a magazine without any disturb or interruption. Em.... if it comes with a cup of iced blended mocha, it makes my day perfect!
