Advanced Mother's Day Dinner

Date : 29th April 2012
Venue : House of Seafood (36 Yio Chu Kang Road, Singapore 545553)

About two months ago, i saw this online deal; 900g crab for less than half the price at House of Seafood. I bought 3, my bro bought 2 and we decided to use it for Mother's Day dinner. We arranged to go for it yesterday, 2 weeks in advance cos we don't wish to join the crowd on the actual day, and next week, my mum's praying at home.


I asked Raeann to smile and open her eyes big big. She said, "如果你要我笑, 我的眼睛就不可以开大大了". LOLOL








Honestly, their food has nothing to rave about. It's really 一分钱, 一分货. We ordered 3 types of crabs but only their salted egg yolk one are edible. The rest all NOT fresh and look kinda small? Not sure if it's 900g though...

This is the thing about buying vouchers online, you have to take the risk of getting 货不对板. I will never ever buy the vouchers from them again. And i don't know if it's consider cheap or expensive. I paid another $160 for the other dishes. Which means, this not very satisfying dinner cost about $280. But hor, even though we have so much complaints, they still have plenty customers leh, full house lor.

Nonetheless, it's the companions that counts bah, not easy getting all together for dinner like such now. Grown up, everyone is busy with their own stuffs. For me, need not say more, MY KIDS.

Everytime when wanna go out, i've to prepare at least 2 hours in advance. And i cannot get rushed, cos i'll take even more longer. Then when i'm done bathing & changing for my kids, i'll be sweaty all over. Just imagine i've just bathed too? That kind of very frustrated feeling? Sigh~ 非常好命!

Marrige Life

For the first time in the past 7 months, the husband wakes up early to send the kids with me!!! Cos his car is in the workshop lah, so he had no choice. But well, i appreciate it.

I observe every little things he does, like changing a new tin of milk powder when it runs out, refilling the thermal pot & etc. I appreciate it even when i don't show or say anything.

We watched Pillow Talk together last night and he was there scolding Qiuyu. Haha! Then don't know what lead to the topic... "好命" again.

As usual, he said i'm VERY 好命 and don't know how many girls felt sad/cried when they knew he's getting married.

I told him, "please hor, they felt sad/cried for me, not becos of u".

HAHAHAHAHAHA

Marriage life is really not as easy as it seems!

Surprise

The husband sms me last night, "later give u surprise". LOL! Where got people give surprise msg the other party to tell her one? So i replied, "u tell me become no surprise liao leh". He replied, "ok, wait for me to come back".

(Anyway, his sms already gave me a surprise cos he NEVER sms me one! And i honestly have no idea what surprise issit, but i'm sure it's something gotta do with either car or gadgets.)

He came back around 10+pm, guess what surprise he gave??? Guess guess???

~SCROLL DOWN~



















TADAH!!!


Xbox Kinect Set

He said, "u wanna slim down mah, Kinect can help u". LOLOL! But now, i'm only 0.5 kg away from my pre-preg weight, how much slimmer he wants me to go?! Yes yes, i'm not kidding, it's only 0.5 kg!!!

I took 7 long months to lose all the 23kgs! It doesn't matter how much you gained during pregnancy, it only matters how much you can lose after giving birth. Am glad i did it! I'm too vain not to do it actually.

So i'm right, it's a gadget! Haha! He's one gadgets king, totally opposite from me, cos i'm totally not into gadgets at all. Like phone ah, i'll buy one which has power camera and i can use it damn long, until it's spoil then i'll change a new one.

And devices like iPad and Samsung Note which everyone has been raving about, i've totally no interest in them. I think it's a waste of money, don't know why, to each of his own bah!

But then ah, my husband will buy and force me to use it. Then he will say, "don't say i never buy things for u". =,=

Buy also must buy something i like or useful mah. Buy all these i never/don't know how to use stuffs, for what huh?

But, i DO appreciate his thoughts though.

Job

Doubt there's anyone out there who can understand how much i dislike my job. Nope, not hate, just dislike...

But everytime when i bring up my intention to leave here, something bad will happen to the family, for example; my dad falls ill and admit to hospital & etc. WHY HAR?

So you see, my job scope includes taking care of my parents too. Cos i'm the one sending my dad to & fro hospitals for check-up and treatments every single time.

Then back at home, i've to take care of two kids. I'm like taking care of people 24/7/365. Sigh!

If one fine day, my parents were to retire, i think i will leave the company too. Becos of one simple reason; i don't wanna work with my bro, to avoid conflict.

But i'm thinking that i should leave now, becos by the time i will be old, who will wanna employ me then?

Spoke to the husband about this last night but i don't get any supports or favourable reply from him, as usual. Becos he doesn't want me to work outside.

I've alot of factors to consider when looking for a new job too. Sigh, why is my life lidat? I need some 'lights' to see which path i should walk now.

神阿,请指点迷津吧!

Watami @ JCube

Phewz, just done vacuuming the floor and feeling so 喘 now. Don't admit old also cannot, do abit of chore only, i feel like i can't catch my breath liao. When you're working for your parents, you have to do everything yourself. My company doesn't have a cleaner, so i'm a cleaner myself, haha!

Okay, the new JCube is open! Went there for lunch with my mum last week! Not advisable to go during the weekends for the meantime, cos there will be mountain of people.




JCube seems quite big but i've no time to explore that day, shall go again when i've time. Finally, other than JP, there's another place for Jurong siders to hang out now.

I'm so lazy now cos i only feel like rotting my weekends away at home...

Raechelle's progress!




The husband went to collect meimei's 6 months old photos this afternoon. Don't know why the 2nd pic turn out so yellowish in the soft copy but the hard copy they gave me looks ok leh. They asked if they can use her pics as baby model on their website anot, lol. So proud of my photogenic baby!


This little vainpot loves to look at the mirror and her own reflection and smile to herself!!! I hope she will be more girly lor, don't be like her sister!

Here's a little update on her progress...

At 6+ months old, she...

1) can crawl very fast now,
2) able to sit up by herself steadily &
3) notice her first little tooth popping out from her lower gum on 14th April 2012.

Have been putting her to bed by 8:30pm every weekdays becos my aunt said she always sleep very little during the noon. Her nap never last longer than 45 mins (poor aunt), lol. She's an extremely light sleeper!

Sometimes, i think i'm too harsh towards my kids. I know some people out there are those "ok, u don't wanna sleep, i let u play until u're tired then u sleep". I can't do that! I'll try ways and means to put them to bed early and make it a habit for them. So now, my kids sleep early and wake up very early also! 

It's all for their own good! :)

How to slim down lidat???

Warning : Alot of good food, don't read if you're on empty stomach, lol.


We were talking about this on Friday night. I made a comment saying, "Siao one, eat one piece of cheesecake must go all the way to Siglap" becos a friend jio-ed me there. Then i saw this box inside my fridge the next day. My younger bro bought it!!! When i saw, i was like "omg, i'm gonna strike 4D tonight", but never strike leh. LOL


But then hor, i think it tasted VERY normal leh, just like any cheesecake sold elsewhere.



Asked my sis to buy this from Japan!


This is damn damn damn yummy! The yummiest biscuits i've ever eaten before. If you go Japan, u must buy this!


XS bought this for me and delivered it to my place on Saturday night. She knew i only like white chocolate! She also bought many souvenirs for me from overseas.


Bo bought this back from Japan as well. I don't know what's this? But it's quite delicious!

There are alot more but i'm too lazy to take pics. My house has never ending food supply. It's like impossible to go on diet at all. You know how hard it is for me to resist not eating them??!!

Poh-Poh Mookata + Frenzie Bar & Bistro

Date : 13th April 2012


One month ago, i bought two vouchers online for dinner at Poh-Poh Mookata; Thai charcoal grill bbq steamboat. Been so crazy over Thai food since young, especially their Tom Yum, i like the super spicy clear soup type! And on my birthday last year, i was introduced to Mookata by XS and i kinda love it.

So i asked her along, but it took us one month to arrange for this dinner on last Friday. Cos i was only given the permission to go out with friends once a month and i missed last month's chance becos meimei wasn't feeling well due to teething.






Portions for two paxs, too much!!!



I give it 4/5 thumbs up!

This is sooooo much better than the $5 mookata i had in Hatyai. Food fresher, more clean & hygiene and much more faster! Furthermore, their soup base has no MSG, drink alot also won't feel thirsty, and the soup is damn tasty, much tastier than Tom Yum Kungfu. And, CHEAPER!!!


The only downside (for us) is... too far, located inside LC Food Centre; Tanjong Katong Road. Maybe becos it's not a shop by itself, that's why their price are way cheaper than others in SG.

I bought the voucher at $12.90 each, so x 2 = $25.80 + $8 (vegetable) = $32.80, plus drinks is less than $40. We eat until going to vomit! Even without the vouchers, their sets are quite cheap as well! Those who love mookata can check this place out! :)

After dinner, we went all the way to Punggol for a drink @ Frenzie Bar & Bistro, damn ulu lor! A place which a friend has been recommending it to me for months. Can you believe it? My GPS can't detect that place at all. Luckily XS's one can, but it brought us merry go round. And the funny thing is, XS's one can't detect the place at Tanjong Katong, lol, weird GPS.


But hor, it's full house that night! Maybe it's all the Punggol people. Worth a go if you're east siders or those eat-too-full-nothing-to-do-and-nowhere-to-go people.


Meet up again, soon! ^^

Jialat lor, i've promised alot of friends to meet for dinner & drinks but i've no time!!! So sorry to all my dear friends! I'll confirm fulfill what i promised, one by one! Heehee

Pillow Talk


I'm totally hooked on this show '再见单人床' on channel 8, 9pm every weekdays. Not only me, Raeann and my mum too. I believe many of you are also hooked becos it's soooooo funny and real. Real as in, it's happening to some of us in real life.

I love some of the quotes they said inside, like "when you become a mother yourself, you will learn to love and appreciate your mother more", which is damn true, for my case. Most women grow up and become more attached to their family after they become a mother themselves. And now, in this century, 女儿不是赔钱货, if you realised.

My aunt told me, during the time when she gave birth to my 3rd cousin, the lady next to her in the same ward gave birth to her 4th daughter. And her MIL refused to cook for her, just becos it's a girl again, her husband only 打包 a packet of char siew rice for her.

Seriously ah, this type of MIL ought to be shot, really. Please lah, people willing to give birth for your son is good enough, should have let you meet those who are unwilling or unable to conceive.

And 20 years ago, women are really stupid. What's the point of helping them to try for a boy, bearing all the pain and uncomfy all by yourself, end up getting shit treatments? Sorry, given my character, i can never do it. I'm those 'the more you force me to do, the more i don't wanna do'. Yes, stubborn, very!

I admit i'm not a good DIL. But if you're nice to me, i'll be nice to you too, this applies to everyone.

Don't tell me bullshit about surname or what 传宗接代. So what IF i have a son but he may not wanna get married in future? Or maybe he got married but his wife refused/unable to conceive? How to 传 lidat? (I'm saying IF!)

I ever saw people posting on fb, twitter or etc before, that they're very sad cos their no. 2/3/4 is a girl again, crying their heart out, asking what have they done wrong and why did god punish them lidat? =.=

Hey, hello, be thankful that you're able to conceive and give birth to healthy kids. So many people out there envy you and yet you're so upset about having another girl? Are you crazy?

Sorry if i'm (always) too agitated on this topic. These are just my two cents thought! You may or may not agree with me!

Made with ♥


Raeann passed me this on Sunday night. She said, "mummy, i've something for you". At first, i thought it's some toy or what cos it doesn't look edible to me, and she gave it to me out of sudden, without any clue. Then she told me it's edible & how she made it (in school), taught by her teacher.

She wanted to give it to me on Thursday but i went to airport to pick my fat sis. And when i reached home, she forgotten about it. (Shit, i hope her memory won't be like me!!!)


Can you guess what's this? I can't.


It's very sweet but surprisingly delicious. It's a rice cookie anyway!

Actually, she's sucha darling at times, she knows how to make me happy with her words & actions. Yeap, she was very disobedient when i was expecting/just give birth to meimei. But now, she's back to normal, she knows how to love her meimei, just that she's very rough (all along).

I hope my fat sis can be less bias against her lah. Her bias-ness is sibei obvious one, everyone can see lor. Glad that i'm able to stick to my stand; be fair to both of them. No doubt meimei is very adorable and she keep smiling everyday (and that's why everyone loves her so much now), but well, who mis-behave, i'll punish who, who behave, i'll praise who, same kind of treatment to both of them.

And when people ask Raeann, "your mummy dotes on who more? you or meimei?". She will say, "both". So i guess i'm doing it well...

Raechelle crawls very fast now!!!

This meimei can crawl really fast now! Put her on the mattress which i just bought from Lydia, she crawls out of it EVERYTIME!!! Watch how she do it...







And she's out! =,= See her face, so happy man!

A very Good Friday!

Yo! How's ya long weekend? Mine was, erm, okay, lol. Played mahjong for 3 consecutive nights, tired like crazy. End up, i slept my Sunday away, again. Haha!

My confinement aunty called me on Thursday noon, said she has just completed a job and was going back on Friday evening. So she said she wanna visit Raechelle on Friday noon and thus, i went to pick her up.


Very nice of her to always remember us!!!

Anyway, she will be coming back in about 2 weeks time to do confinement for one of my sec school mate. The one she just completed was JJ's director's friend. I shared her contact with all who asked me; readers, friends, friends' friend & etc. I really hope they will be as happy with aunty as i am! :)

She mentioned that alot of my 'friends' called her, but the months they're giving birth, she has already got a job on hand. Frankly speaking, i don't know who are those 'friends'. But if u need a confinement aunty to help from Sept - Dec, i think she's still available. CALL HER!!!

We have a dinner appointment with ZY's friends on Friday evening, so on our way out, we sent aunty home...


Then this Raeann wore a bee headgear and loitered around Orchard, lol!!!


After dinner, we hopped over to Paragon and she remembered there's this playground there! =.=



Took these while the men were smoking!

Mummy helped me to look after meimei so didn't bring her along cos she's VERY buay si tiam now. Up, down, up, down, cannot keep still at all. Oh yes, she can crawl now, omg, very scary!!! Super duper active, more active than Raeann when she was a baby lor!
