Thank you 2012!

Reading through my blog posts from Jan - Dec 2012, i'd gladly say that 2012 has been nice to me...

  • Success in my diet plan, got even slimmer than my pre-preg weight, though i put on some weight back now.
  • Eat plenty of good food!
  • Went to Hatyai for a shopping holiday in Feb.
  • Learnt how to handle two kids alone.
  • Got closer to PY and let our girls attended classes/courses together.
  • Went for Angry Birds Cable Car Ride with my lil' family on my birthday.
  • Picked up some cooking skill.
  • Discovered a new place to pamper my nails.
  • Planned the first birthday party for my two girls and received very good responses.
  • Bought myself a new compact camera, haha! (So lame!)
  • Went for a 3 days 2 nights staycation at R.W.S with my family and friends on ZY's birthday.
  • Attended LEGO DUPLO blogger's event, received some advertorials and sponsorships.
  • Attended many weddings, birthdays & babies showers.
  • Spent alot of time with my family & parents.
  • I've lost some friends but gained more friends, knowledge, wisdom & patience, so the loss is worth while, i've no regrets. At least now i know, who are those worthy of my time.
  • Most importantly, i get to watch my two kids grow, day by day. Gone are those freedom days but watching them grow is a form of happiness too. Also, relationship between me and ZY has never been better than before. We both have learnt to give and take.

Alright, that's about all, not much, but it's enough to make me happy. Thank you very much for the great year, i'm looking forward to an even better 2013! =D


Happy New Year, everyone!
 
Updates : I've typed this weeks ago but scheduled to post today, the last day of 2012. Anyway, we're just back from the doctor, meimei suddenly fell sick yesterday morning. There goes my hotel countdown plan with XS & friends, sobz!

That's why i never like to make plans early cos i don't know what last minute cock up will i receive. And it's not nice to last minute fly people aeroplane, haiz! Mummies out there whom have to look after kids themselves will understand what i mean. Well well, it's okay, kids are more important! :)

 
Last chapter of 2012; 请将所有的霉运,病痛,小人 (还有 pimples, haha) 和种种的坏东西跟随 2012 年走。。。欢迎 2013 年!(",)
 
Suddenly popped one humongous pimple on my chin last Saturday evening! (I very long don't have pimples liao lor!) And it's those cannot be squeezed out type. The more i squeeze, the more swollen it gets. But my itchy hand cannot fail to touch it leh. Howwwwwwwww?! Shoo shoo pimple, please go with 2012, don't come back anymore, i won't miss you! #Kthxbye

Merry Merry X'mas 2012

Had wanted to organise a X'mas party on the eve as requested by some of my friends, but i'm too lazy, plus i've to bring my dad to the hospital on the eve's morning and therefore, i've no time to prepare. So i thought i would just rot my X'mas away, it seems like any other days to me, except for giving/receiving gifts!

However, Bo decided to give us a treat and do a steamboat at home cos she just got her first pay from her internship. And she went to buy the food cos her company's half day. THANK YOU AH!

 

Fixed my phone!

Yesterday, my handphone ki siao, it's jinx-ed, i think.

The ringer works, but all other sound is off unless the headphones are plugged in. This goes for recorded movies, music i purchased, youtube videos, the sound effects when i slide the login button. Everything is silent. I restarted it a few times, but to no avail. Even the sound buttons on the side do nothing; they don’t even bring up the sound volume overlay.


Google and found out that many people encountered the same problem. Tried all the solutions people posted there and AMAZINGLY, one of the solution works!!!

Internet rocks!!! HAHAHAHA

HENG AH! I thought i received sucha "nice" X'mas present lor! I ish a happy aunty now! =D

Boring Saturday

BORED, otherwise i will not be here blogging.


Play mate now, shopping mate in future! :)

Raeann's last art lesson today but she did not attend as she was a little unwell; slight fever, quite jialat running nose & cough. And she woke up many times in the middle of last night, complained that she can't breathe well. Okay, she's given the permission to skip class.

I don't like her to skip class without a valid reason. Sometimes, when Alexis didn't attend the class, she will tell me she don't wanna go too. But, by hook or by crook, i'll make her go. Becos i know her too well. She's those who likes to 半途而废 becos she doesn't like doing the same thing for too long. So now, before she decided to do anything, i will tell her, "No matter what, you must finish the whole course. You choose to go, nobody forced you".


Quite wasted as we can see improvements in her drawings/colorings etc after she started learning. But as i said before, i don't wanna force her lah. Her "torturing days" (Primary) are coming soon anyway... Oh well!




Despite unwell, appetite still not bad! She craved for pasta lor!

Back home, she napped for a couple of hours and this meimei went to wake her up by doing this...


She always do that to me too!!! Quite useful cos it works every single time. She can't do to her daddy cos he cover up his whole face when sleeping one. He asked me to learn from him to put a "protection" also.

Anyway, i'm sure all of you have heard of the blogger's saga that is a hot topic right now. I don't wish to name anyone becos i'm not trying to gain fame or traffic here. But i've been catching up on the updates becos hor, people keep posting it leh. Yes lah, i'm kpo lah, but this is human nature, i guess.

That victim's chinese is sibei powerful lor, read until my eyes blur blur. I really feel her and understand why she trashed everything out. But she did it in a classy way, isn't it? She did not insult anyone! I don't think she did anything wrong by speaking up leh? In fact, she has already warned the 3rd party that if one day they get together (cos she keep denying mah), she will publicize this out. The only thing that's not expected - the big reactions. Many people, especially women, HATE 小三!

I know there are worse cases around and many ladies choose to suffer/cry alone, which i don't think is good, confirm tio depression lor.

As for the 3rd party, i think she has many haters now. First thing that came to my mind, "Huh? I thought she always portray herself until very innocent & good one?". Well, i don't know her so i'm not gonna comment much. But i always believe in "what goes around, comes around".

Can't believe there are people defending her, with lamest reasons. Whatever. Just my 2 cents worth!

All ready for X'mas!!!

 
Part II
 
Finally settled all the X'mas pressies! (Still lacked of baby niece's one though, wait till i go shopping!) In fact, i've already given out most of the presents liao. Hope they will like my little gift! Not expensive but it's something useful to them, hopefully.
 
Need to rant something about my sis's gift.
 
I ordered a customised heart swaroski crystal name necklace for her from MyNameNecklace (Seriously, i don't know where is it located, but from the envelope, their address is somewhere at Israel.) few months ago. It took about one month to reach me...
 
 
1st one; necklace full of scratches, dirty gift box and rotten gift card. (FYI, i paid extra for the box and gift card!) I deliberately enlarged the pic to show those scratches. Emailed them to complain, they sent me a pre-paid envelope (which took half a month to reach me) and i sent the necklace back to them. They promised to do a new one for me, which took another almost one month to reach me...
 
 
2nd one; even more jialat than the 1st one sia, full of scratches + one deep long scratch at the centre of the heart, box is clean though. Emailed them to complain again becos there is NO WAY i'll accept such ugly necklace when i paid like $80 for it! Told them to refund me cos by the time i receive another replacement, X'mas will be over. FML, i should have done it in SG, cheaper and better. Waste my time, really, made me have to go & shop for another present locally.
 
P/S : So you see Bo, not i stingy leh, you have no fate with the necklace.
 
♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
 
Advanced X'mas + Gift Exchange Dinner
 
A short one though!
 
 
With the friend whom stayed with me for 2 decades. Every year, without fail, she will prepare something for me and my kids. So fortunate to have a friend who dote on my kids as much as me. You know, if one fine day, she pop the news that she's gonna be a mum soon to me, i'll confirm be overjoy, as happy as she is. (Still waiting, faster leh, i want our kids to be friends too! =P)
 
Kinda regret to bring the kids along becos we don't have much chance to talk. It was supposed to be a "ladies session" without the husbands. No chance to go shopping also cos meimei was sleepy and cranky liao. She is very 'zhun' one leh! Everyday, after 8pm, she will starts yawning and rubbing her eyes liao.
 
Did i mention before her sleeping time is between 8:30pm - 9pm? It still is, unless there's some cock up. And she will sleep till the next morning. Even when she wakes up in the middle of the night sometimes (to look for me or whatever), i don't give her milk/water, i'll just pat her back to sleep. I don't want her to have night drinking habit. Both my girls didn't wake up for night feed since 4 months old and 2 months old respectively. Lucky me? Maybe. YES!!! 

Winner of X'mas 2012 Give Away

We are not fat, we are greatly cultivated.

Alright, as long as my husband & kids love me, it's okay to be fat. LOL!
 
 
A while back, at the entrance of a gym, there was a picture of a very thin and beautiful woman. The caption was "This summer, do you want to be a mermaid or a whale?"

The story goes, a woman (of clothing size unknown) answered the following way:

Dear people, whales are always surrounded by friends (dolphins, seals, curious humans), they are sexually active and raise their children with great t...enderness.
They entertain like crazy with dolphins and eat lots of prawns. They swim all day and travel to fantastic places like Patagonia, the Barents Sea or the coral reefs of Polynesia.
They sing incredibly well and sometimes even are on cds. They are impressive and dearly loved animals, which everyone defend and admires.

Mermaids do not exist.

But if they existed, they would line up to see a psychologist because of a problem of split personality: woman or fish?
They would have no sex life and could not bear children.
Yes, they would be lovely, but lonely and sad.
And, who wants a girl that smells like fish by his side?

Without a doubt, I'd rather be a whale.

At a time when the media tells us that only thin is beautiful, I prefer to eat ice cream with my kids, to have dinner with my husband, to eat and drink and have fun with my friends.

We women, we gain weight because we accumulate so much wisdom and knowledge that there isn't enough space in our heads, and it spreads all over our bodies.
We are not fat, we are greatly cultivated.
Every time I see my curves in the mirror, I tell myself: "How amazing am I?!"

The bond we share...

I told Raeann how her father courted me! And she went to ask him. But ZY told her it's me who courted him instead, and said i kept pestering him, which is of cos, not true. He's the irritating one, kept pestering me despite me rejecting him many times. LOL

And we sometimes joke about how stupid we are marrying each other! Then Raeann said, i'm stupid, her father is also stupid, so two stupid people together, 很配!

(LOL! Her words really stunted me! Very smart reply huh?)

Last night, we went jogging together and it suddenly rain very heavily. We were SOAKED, have no choice but to run under the rain as there wasn't any shelter nearby at all. I covered her head with my hands...

Raeann: "U better cover yourself, it will be bad if you fall sick, nobody takes care of us."
Me: "No lah, it's okay, i'll cover you, i won't get sick so easily one. U kid, u will fall sick easily!"
Raeann: "Let's get drench together then, since we're already half drenched."

Raeann is like my best friend cos we share everything under the sun/moon.

(Although there are some secrets she shares with her dad and pleaded him not to tell me cos she's afraid i'll punish her, but when i asked her in a very firm way, she will confess everything!)

She complains to me, i complain to her, she comforts me, i comfort her.

(Surprisingly, at the age of 5, she knew alot, watched too much TV i think!)

She speaks up for me whenever i argued with ZY, and ZY 死在她手上. She's being sent to control ZY, i think. While meimei is being sent to control me, hahaha!

Which is why, we seldom argue nowadays, becos of these two joker daughters we have. When i see them, all my angers disappeared, naturally.

This morning, while making milk for her...

 
She took this hairband and wear, then pose and let me take pictures, lol.
 
I'm amazed that she knew this is a hairband, becos i seldom wear hairband. I'll only wear when i'm putting on mask, that's when she's sleeping. Thus, she has never seen me wearing hairband before. She's sucha darling when she smile!
 
(But a devil when she gets angry! ZY said she's totally like me; daring, seldom cry, very fierce, knows how to fight back when get bullied!)
 
So so so so so so so so thankful to have these two daughters. Hope i can be their best friend forever, till the day i die! =D
 
And also hor, (prior to those recent cheating sagas) I HOPE MY HUSBAND WON'T CHEAT ON ME. He better don't!
 
Issit very difficult to stay faithful & stick to one fucking partner?
 
Men; before you decided to cheat, SPARE A THOUGHT FOR YOUR SPOUSE AND CHILDREN. You won't know how much your foolish action will hurt and affect them, they don't deserve all these.
 
Women; NEVER EVER BE A 3RD PARTY. Everything goes in a cycle. You break up other's family, other will break up yours too. Karma's a bitch!

Family Weekend

Saturday
 
Impromptu plan to go City Square Mall for dinner on Saturday evening, cos ZY said we have not been there for a long time liao...
 
 
My sibei guai lan baby girl.
 
She's SUPER fierce, even jiejie also kena beaten (cos she just woke up and jiejie went to hug her very tightly, she got angry and beat her), sigh. Scold, beat, threaten her with cane, she also no scare one. I'm very stress, i don't know how to discipline her, she is NOT scare of anyone/anything.
 
 
City Square Mall suddenly become very popular leh cos we have to wait for carpark. Last time, no need, no crowds at all. I think it's due to, they have plenty of events for kids every weekends.
 
 
Plus, a new Toy'r'us outlet just opened there.
 
Jiejie is very scare of all these mascots, since 3 years old (baby/toddler time she ok one). Then meimei sut sut went to say Hi to this Toy'r'us giraffe so jiejie also want to act brave, hahaha! Kids and kids influenced the fastest, better than mummy's word.
 
 
We happened to meet "CHUGGINGTON" over the weekends.
 
 
The husband suggested to eat Seoul Garden, so we went. The two girls ate one big bowl of rice each.
 
 
Rewarded jiejie with train ride after dinner.
 
 
Meimei kept calling and calling for jiejie and jiejie said HI. I didn't let meimei sit cos i'm worried she will fall out as her butt got many needles and jiejie don't really know how to look after her yet. But i saw her kept calling out and got very excited whenever jiejie passed by...
 
 
So i let her try too, and jiejie sat for a 2nd time. MEIMEI IS VERY VERY HAPPY! And she sat through, phewz! (Okay, i cutted her hair for her and she moved around, that's why is this funny and ugly now, lol!)
 
 
Time to head home and Zzz!
 
(Bought toothbrush for meimei and asked jiejie to teach her how to brush her teeth!)
 
Sunday 
 
 
Planned to visit ILS with these two M&M, Raeann was wearing my clothes btw, lol!
 
 
Chloe's a good baby sitter. She can skip all the fun/play just to look after babies, lol.
 
 
Then sweetie Ler Yee came over too! She also wore M&M, not planned!!!
 
 
CUTE RIGHT? Just realised she has very deep dimple! And i love the baby scent on her head!!!
 
 
Do, re, mi, fa, so, la, ti is on the way.
 
SIL was saying that nowadays, it's not easy to have 6-7 grandchildren. I AGREE! Becos nowadays, it's not easy to feed/teach a kid and not much people wanna give birth to so many. So yes, BE THANKFUL for everything, irregardless of gender. As long as they are healthy and safe, be contented.
 
 
 
 
 
Then we went to meet "CHUGGINGTON" again!! They decided to go for dinner together there, settled for Aston! I was so nua and sleepy, the dinner was an impromptu one also!
