Ho Family Day :: Iron Man 3

Yesterday morning, i asked the kids to "dig" their father up to bring them for breakfast, becos we haven done so for quite some time. And well, the "best father ever" (deemed by himself) woke up to do so! :) Upon Raeann's request, we made an impromptu decision to go for 'Iron Man 3' after our brunch. (By the time all of us bathed and changed, it's already 11+am!)

Breakfast @ Malaysia Boleh!


"Where's my food?" LOL




Iron Man 3


Caught the 3D one! Meimei LOVE wearing the spectacle lor, she was wearing it all the way until she fell asleep, lol. As usual lah, eat eat eat, then sleep, hahaha! ZY kept saying that she looked so funny and cute wearing that spectacle. Cute is cute lah, but she's super duper extremely mischievous! Sigh~

Not bad, quite funny, at least i didn't fall asleep! =x

I think i mentioned before, that i dislike watching angmo movies. But this, at least i understand 3/4 of the movie, even though i didn't watch part 1 and 2. LOL @ the "limited edition" Dora watch, hahahah!

Love my eyebrows today!


I'm sorry, you gonna see alot of my face today. 
#nofilter #noedit

Becos hor, i went to watch Korea makeup tutorials on YouTube yesterday and decided to try drawing my brows, using the method that makeup artist taught... According to him, straighter & brown eyebrows will make one look younger!!! And i must agree! (Black with arch eyebrows will look more mature!)

Disclaimer: I'm only interested in Korean skincare and cosmetics, not interested in KPOP at all. I know none of the Korean artists! 

Oh yes, that's how interested i am in makeup. Since young, this interest never die off. I'll watch tutorials and try it myself, trials and errors. I'll learn and try, until i succeed. If i don't know, i will ask or research. I won't act smart to shame myself. If you're one who like to act smart, then don't blame people for laughing at your "smartness". #justsaying


So love it! Hope i can draw like this everyday, lolol! 


Sent Raeann to school earlier as her school starts early today!
 
Bringing my mum for advanced Mother's day lunch soon! BYE!

Flush out all the toxics!!!

Today, i officially started on a 15 days DETOX PROGRAM, weight as of this morning: 49kgs! (Shit, put on 1 freaking kg, must have snacked too much, lol!)

Well, i'm NOT on diet, but i think i've too much toxics in my body and i need to flush them out. And this program allows me to EAT AS USUAL, and of cos, i'll be eating as usual, lolol.

Okay, my cousins and sis are on another detox program now too. But she told me that they aren't allow to eat anything except drinking some weird drink for the first few days. And i was like, "WHAT? Cannot eat anything? Don't eat sure can slim down right? Then when you eat, the weight will go back again?". I don't know. To me, diet cannot be so extreme. IMO, extreme diet will cause one to look very tired and haggard!

ZY don't allow me to go on diet becos he said i'm slim enough, hahahahaha! Anyway, let's see how much i will lose at the end of 15 days (how much kgs of toxics i have)!

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥


These are how much we've bought! Hahaha, FULL. 


They said this is damn good and i must agree! Tried it last night! :)


Caramel biscuit from Cold Storage! YUMMY!


Received my Black Box!!! Have you receive yours?

Okay, i need to clarify something. I just saw that this box is addressed to "Joanne Raeann", which means, is a courtesy sent to my blog, not me! So the stuffs inside are different and more! I guess i'll receive another one within these few days under my own subscription! Thank you, BlackBox! Sign up now if you have not done so!

Watsons (house brand) 1 for 1

This morning, one very kind reader, Sharon, tagged me on FB to inform me of this awesome offer; ALL Watsons (house brand) items 1 for 1, ONLY FOR TODAY!!! 

And so, i jio-ed my mum & made a trip down to Railway Mall for lunch and shopping!!! (Railway Mall has a small Watsons shop there, love shopping there becos it's not crowded and all the staffs are very helpful & friendly!)


No, i not aunty. LOL

We scored FOUR big bags of stuffs at a damage of about $120!!! My stuffs costed around $46 only and i bought sooooooo many (becos of the 1 for 1 offer). HOW WORTH!!!

Furthermore, there's $3 coupon (offset for the next purchase) for every $30 spent. (Not sure if it's available only at Railway Mall or all outlets?) And, the staffs were literally separating all the stuffs for us in separated receipts, so that we can get the $3 coupon to offset on our next receipt. SO NICE CAN!!!

And guess what???

I'm going back again to get MORE tissues and bird's nest masks. After 1 for 1 offer, the box tissue; 6 boxes (3 boxes in a pack) for $2.50 ONLY. And the mask; 2 boxes (4 pcs + 4 tube of serums) for $15 ONLY.

Don't say i never share hor, it's for TODAY ONLY!!! Quick, drop by your nearest Watsons now! :)

2nd round later! Hahaha

爱自己, 就会幸福!

现在的我。。。

为朋友做任何事前,会先问自己, “值得吗?”。 

有些人,不是你对他好,他就一定会珍惜你。

有些人,有了新朋友,就会把旧的丢一旁。

有些人,是需要你时,才记得你。

现在,朋友对我而言,“合不来就算了”。

凡事看开一点,就会获得快乐。

爱自己,就会幸福!^.^

我是皇太后!

Last evening, while showering, Raeann came into the room and asked if she can play the iPad for awhile... Gave her the permission to play but she must stop when i finish showering. When i came out from the toilet (which is about 5 mins later becos when she asked, i was already showering halfway), Meimei was trying to snatch the iPad from her. Told them to keep, both cannot play since they don't know how to SHARE. Meimei didn't give up, still trying to snatch the iPad...

Raeann (to meimei): Mummy 讲收,就一定要收。因为她是皇太后。
Me: Huh? 为什么我是皇太后 leh?
Raeann: 因为你很凶。皇太后永远都是那么凶的。

Thanks ah, Raeann. LOL

In their eyes, i'm one very fierce mummy and they are scare of me, only me, i think. However, i think i'm a nice mummy as well becos they both stick to me like leeches even though i'm so fierce towards them. Which means, i've proven myself right on something. Which is, i don't have to give in to whatever they want in order for them to respect and love me. Giving them proper disciplines is the greatest form of love, IMO!

People often ask me, "how can you bear to cane your kids?" And i always reply, "WHY NOT? If mis-behaved, must discipline!".

My kids are not the best nor very obedient, i know. But at least, when i'm around, they dare not 'sng siao' with me. When i say NO, it means a firm NO. Ask/whine further, they'll get it from me. When it comes to kids discipline, nobody in the house dare to say/do anything when i get really really mad. Not trying to boast how "powerful" am i, but i'm certainly VERY firm with my own stand. Becos, i can still lock the kids inside the room and discipline them, people outside can break the door, i don't care.


Punishment, nobody dare to go near, lolol. (Pic taken long time ago!)

I took this pic and sent to ZY, to let him know how ridiculous his daughter was. 

No, don't have to praise/criticize my ways of disciplining my kids, i'm not fishing for that. Becos they're MY kids, i know what i should do, as their mum. I don't have to prove/impress the whole world on what a great mummy i am or how blessed i am cos of the things my kids did for me. Becos they know and i know, others need not have to know!

They drive me NUTS!

21st April 2013


Hahaha, she sho heppi wearing it, wore to Caltex somemore, lolol!


So trendy, knows how to adjust sideway herself, lololol! 

20th April 2013



But give me hope and joy too! So contradicting!

As i grow older, i become less enthu to justify myself. I hate being accused/misunderstood and in the past, i'll try ways and means to justify myself. Now, i can't be bothered, even though i still quite hate it. But i'm too lazy, too lazy to explain becos i see no point explaining to people who aren't important in my life... And my morale in life now is, "WHATEVER, BO CHUP"! LOL! Try it, you'll be 10x happier than how you're now, mark my words. Being too helpful/concern is 好心没好报 one!

Cheeky Little Ho

14th April 2013


海底捞火锅 :: LADURÉE :: TWC @ Dempsey

Met up with my "long lost sister" yesterday, amazed that we can do so much stuffs within sucha few hours! Love meeting up with her becos she's a food guru, she always bring me around to try all the nice food and every single time, I was never disappointed. Given that I'm sucha a mountain turtle who is always stuck in the west side of SG after I got married, I always have no idea where to go when meeting up with friends. So it's great to be blessed with sucha friend becos i don't have to think, and she will lead the way! :)

P/S : Know why I termed her as my "long lost sister"? Lolol. Becos every single time when I posted our photos, I'll receive comments that we look alike. Not only from my friends, but from hers as well. It's funny cos we don't feel so. I think it's only in photos. Those who met us IRL won't feel so too.

She's getting hitched in Nov and I'm super excited to be invited as one of her "sisters". I wonder why everytime my close friends got married, I'll be more excited than the time I became a bride? Haha! About 6 months left to slim down, so stress!

P/S : I'm searching for a short evening dress to wear for her dinner. Anyone has intro? Please let me know k? Thanks!

Here's what we did yesterday... Drove my dad's car home while my mum took my car so she can help me pick meimei with the car seat inside my car. Without my mum (& aunt), i don't have the chance to go out at all, becos nobody else except them can/will help me!!

Then Cheryl came to pick me up at my place as she was nearby! Becos we're staying quite near each other and it's kinda stupid to drive two cars out, unless she's already in town, then i'll drive to meet her. I never like to trouble people. So when people offered to pick me up, i'll "repay" them with a dinner/drinks treat.

海底捞火锅

She brought me here for dinner!

We reached there around 5+pm and we got a table immediately, don't have to queue... Heard from Cheryl that she has once queued for 2 hours before. The crowds, omg, spectactular. But not bad to be on the waiting list leh, becos they provide free dessert/snack corner and MANICURE for waiting customers. Very good idea and customer service! I'm planning to bring my mum there next week! Hee


How? Got look alike anot? LOL


Placing orders with an iPad, lolol.


The moment we sat down, we were "served" with hot towels to clean our hands. Ordered their plum drink at S$3.00 FREE FLOW. And they're very fast hand fast leg, becos i was never "ran out" of my plum drink. I drank half only, they refilled, sibei observant one! Then they will ask if you wanna change a new plate if they see your plate dirty. Impressive customer service, HIGHLY recommended. (Cheryl said i'll definitely be impressed by their customer service and indeed, I AM!)

P/S : Even their toilet bowls have heater lor! LOL

P/P/S : Free flow desserts corner.


Everyone will be given an apron and this plastic, to put our hp in for protection.
(So that the soup won't be able to spill on it, so meticulous can!)


Their "white" soup is SUPER DUPER DELICIOUS, i bet you will think so too (if you try before).
But their "ma la" is too oily, i don't like! =X 


Helping us with the prawn paste! Super efficient! You don't have to lay a finger yourself. With this kind of customer services, they then have the right to charge additional 10% service charge to the bill. Don't understand why we should pay additional 10% service charge to those restuarants with fucked up customer services huh?


So special~

And here comes the interesting part...



 This is how they serve their 拉面!!!


Very Q, super love it! (Abit like mee hoon kuey!)


SUPER FULL, we managed to clear off everything! Too yummy to be left over! And we're sibei ZHUN, becos we can eat till $100 NETT, no cents at all. Hahahaha! Cheryl insisted paying me back but I insisted not to take the money from her. And so, she insisted treating me to macarons... LOL! (Oh yes, I'm very generous to people who don't "gei gao" with me. But if you "gei gao" with me, I doubt I'll ever meet you again, lol!)


Saw the board? The waiting list (with tons of people waiting at another area) when we left! They don't take in reservation! So, if you wish to try, GO EARLIER! (Best is before 6pm!)

Then, we proceeded to TAKA, wanting to get the current most raved macarons; LADURÉE.


Look at the freaking queue... LOL! We saw the queue and decided not to join in the madness becos we are not a fan of macarons. (Had my first macarons from RWS and it sucks, super sweet. Tried a few other "brands", not nice as well.) Walked around, had nowhere in mind to go, joined in the madness lor! 15-20 mins of queuing time (I'm not one who will queue to follow the crowd, so 15-20 mins to me is very long liao), and I just wanna say...


No regret AT ALL becos it's so so so so yummy! Not sweet at all! 8 pcs for about $30, quite ex hor, for just a few small pieces of biscuit, lolol. But I'll buy it again, for sure! ^.^ (Maybe ask ZY to bring us to TAKA tomorrow, hee!)


Passed by this sweet potato stall which QQ was raving about and I bought the last two!!!


Very soft and yummy, skin can be eaten one leh!


Ended the night with a bottle of lychee wine...


And ikan bilis + peanut, lolol!

I'm really thankful to have this friend; a good friend who understands my situtation and always very steady when i asked her out, even if it's last minute! Also very grateful that she puts in efforts to keep me as her friend, she asked me out for dinner many times but i can't make it cos it's too last minute.

I'm not a good friend, but i do treasure ALL the friends that has come a long way with me (and of cos, no backstabbing nor gossiping about them). If they need my help, I'll try my very best to be there for them, no matter what. As long as I made a promise, I'll deliver it, this is my principle. Cheers to this friendship! :)

P/S : I'm VERY BAD with mushy words. I WILL NOT deliberately msg my friends to tell them that "they very chio" or "i miss them" or whatever. Not that i think they're not chio or i don't miss them, but actions like these made my hair stands (i find it very 做作), so i'll never do that, unless they asked for my opinion. ALL my close friends know, I'm blessed!

Just in case...

YOU FORGET OUR FACE!!! HAHAHA


LOLOL! ZY said very ugly! (Bo makeup for her & sent me these photos!) Poor girl isn't feeling well for the past few days. Coughed & vomited in the middle of 3 consecutive nights.


In daddy's car, no car seat, so she took the seat belt and tie herself lidat! Haa! (Bringing jiejie to see doc!)

Well, no photos of me lately. Becos i'm tooooooooo busy to even take a photo of myself. Need to travel to the East in a while... Finally settled ALL the paperwork! YES!!! (If you have time to doll up yourself and camwhore everyday, why are you even considered busy?? Only sibei free people do that, no? #justsaying)

Till then! :)
