Bitter-chat

anyone who is close to me, knows that i just simply love to eat! so to encounter bad food once awhile sure got wan lah! i encountered earlier this week, a bad experience for myself, bad luck lah! puuuuiiit! make me tension only, must be the hormones, and i was also very tired from a day of work & lil missy whining doesn't ease the situation too!

i really wanna vomit blood!

chicken was bloody, rice was cold

i was there together with my bro-in-law & family for dinner, there were 6 of us. the rest of the food ordered was ok & yummy except mine! dammit! i ordered the above, and it came cold, chicken was not thoroughly cook, i still can see the blood. the more i force myself to finish the food, i just can't swallow it and i left it. my mistake was i did not complain on the spot

when settling the bill, i point it out to the manager on duty, he mentioned why i did not complain earlier, they can change a new set for me. i told him why rice was cold, chicken not cook, so lousy wan, u know what he answered me "oh this is our best seller!" what the fark! best seller? kanasai, can come tell me that statement at the moment like this. it's like telling a fella who has just lost something precious, aiyah it's ok lah, go buy another one which that fella can't... u know what i mean lah. blady hell, damn boh-kam-wan! our bill came up to rm110plus, not to say we can't afford, no need to give statement like this ooooooooooook!

i will probably go back to this chain of cafe to try out their desserts, but definitely NOT this branch in mines mall, mangkooooooooooook! sigh, ok steam is all out, let's move on!

bro-in-laws, will always be stuck at the karaoke
console choosing songs to be karaoke-d

Treasure hunt to JB @ 4.12.10

earlier this month, i joined our company's yearly treasure hunt event again, last year was lovely Pangkor, this time was "flashback to the 80s" to Johor Bahru. we had an early start, flagged of from USJ at 7.30am and the whole hunt took 9 hours if i recalled properly, all the way from KL - Nilai - Melaka end touched down in Johor :)

the highlight of the trip was we took a wrong turn towards woodlands toll into Singapore at the last tulip, and got stuck with the traffic into Singapore! and all these happened without any of us having passport with us! everyone was in panicky mode already, and thank GOD there was a little road repair going on & hubs took a u-turn and we were heading back to Malaysia! gosh, talk about the right timing man! dang! when we turned back & passed by msia custom, he demanded for passport, and all of us laughed. we explained ourself & the officer's turn to laugh pulak! aiks! malu siot! he then asked for our ICs & we were save! hubs was telling imagine we didn't get to u-turn, we probably end up dead meat in singapore's lokap!

we ended up in the hotel just in time to hand over our
answer sheets. what a relief! and we were all dead
tired from the hunt, and poor hubby of mine,
drove from morning to evening non stop... kecian-nye
but it was fun lah!

we anticipated food hunt as well ourselves,
how to resist the good food in melaka
we wanted to bring along our frens
to various food places, but time is precious!

after having dinner in hotel, 2 group of hunters
went ronda-ronda to look for more food
simple yet yummy!

after our breakie in hotel the next morning,
we head back to melaka as our frens wanna
go have lunch in the chicken rice ball shop again!
so here we go!

after our lunch, we drove to jonker street area in
melaka & have a nice cendol under the tree :) overall
this was a fun trip though very tiring, we all had fun,
ate a lot, and hubs said he drove for 800km!

rapunzel got tangled!

i have been coaxing lil missy in watching
the trailer for TANGLED... after so long,
finally! a real "knight in the shining
armor" kind of animation hits the cinema
well almost "knight in shining armor" that is!

i always love these kind of animation movie,
be it like beauty & the beast, sleeping beauty
to name a few... (^^p)

i just can't wait for it, hope lil missy will
want to watch this, in a peaceful manner
at the big big teevee *cold sweat*

concert time!

"warning - shiok sendiri post ahead"

our lil missy had her 1st concert last saturday over at her kindy. it was done just in front of her kindy, a low cost event, nothing fancy like doing over in big halls or malls. oh well, small scale pun small scale lah... as long as my princess did well in her performance!


when i was given the concert schedule by her teacher, i was told she is involved in 3 performances, one of them being a solo performance, her reciting 2 rhymes. on that day, she did 5 performances! wahlaowei, i think they not enuf of student lar
! or my lil missy too noty edi :)

her 1st performance was a Happy Day dance, she came out so cute with her 2 braided ponytails, holding a big card, dancing along... she looked so happy, smiling till kenot see her eyes!


her 2nd performance was a Fashion show, this shocked me man! she came out as the 2nd couple wearing the cutest pink cheong sam i ever saw in my life! hahahahaha! im just making that up, pardon me again! with 2 huge flowers on each side of her hair. gosh, can see she was somehow blushing from the catwalk *ehem*

her 3rd performance was a dance from 2 rhymes. again with her smile-till-kenot-see-eyes, she was happily dancing away, gosh so proud of her!

now the next performance, which was her 4th one, it the main highlight event for us, cus it was her SOLO performance. she had to recite 2 short rhymes, with a short introduction of herself which goes like this
my name is krystal ....
i am 3 years old
tonight, i will present 2 rhymes to all of you
then her 2 rhymes starts...

the only thing i was upset was the sound system was quite bad, and her mike was not adjusted properly for her, and then no one signal her to start. i was almost near to tears when i see her standing alone up there stunned. then i slowly signaled her to start seeing that no teachers are doing so, can't blame them, they were going nuts arranging the kids for next performance. ultimately my lil missy done well, she finished her performance nicely. she has the guts for a 3 year old. i don't remember me doing this when i was 3, i probably cried! gosh, she has done us so proud!

then she had time to rest, run around for the finale. the goodbye song with the a big group of kids. and that was it! the after concert was a bit havoc, cus all parents were like ready to race to the stage to grab their kids. luckily the MC did well, kept announcing to all parents that kids pick-up goes by age, do not rush and scares off your kids! hahaha... kancheong spiders all :)

overall i would say the concert went well, kudos to the teachers for the job well done, i will be always amaze how the teachers could train so young kids to do performance, and not 1 kid, but a group of kids. salute to the teachers!

im stressed!

about buying books that is! but nothing beats this reading cat! i got to meet this meow & his super cute lil prince. didn't manage to snap a picture of the cute lil fella as i was like kancheong spider already looking at the books. thanks to BBW yesterday night, i got to attend the preview sale, so no need to squeeze like mad with bigger crowd as it was only less than 100 ppl around for the preview sale. so it was such a bliss with no one pushing, no noise, complete silent of excitement in one-self! amitabha! can imagine the crowd go nuts when they see the books here!

kathy said i was looking very stressed when she
saw me! hahahaha! how can i not look stress wei!
look at the boooooooooooks! gosh!

when i walked in, a guy passed me a box,
i asked him what for? then he grinned...
hahahahaha... normally when i go to book sales,
i hold the books like wanna tumbang liddat wan!

happy to say, i meet my budget for the books i bought! haha! as i was walking towards the oldtown where hubs & lil missy was happily sitting down waiting for me, i think hubs got a shock looking at me holding a box full of books. i must have scared him a bit there. hahahahahahhaha!

i am so proud with my books man!
so cheap, so affordable and great to read!
prices range from rm3, rm5, rm8 - rm20

and i simply love what i bought for myself!
hoooooooooooooowl!

live life to fullest?

we always hear live life to the fullest, how do we do that? do everything we want today, no need to think about future or the consequences? spend the money we have now, no need to save for rainy days, cus you never know what will happen tomorrow? pretty hard huh?! i guess we still have to think about future, rite? no way we can do anything we like, with the family commitment, with the responsibilities we have...

recently my uncle passed away, and the whole family was there to support my uncle's family. sometimes, event like this brings family together, agree? though sad, but in a way it brings the family closer and together for hard times like this. we will all move on when the day comes, so be happy while we are still alive & kicking (note to self!)

on the happier note, lil missy is having her 1st concert next weekend & we are super anxious & excited for her! woohooo! she not only has 1 performance, but 3... yeah baby, 3 performances! siao leh, and i have to pay more for the costumes! @#$@#@! she has 1 solo & 2 group performances! waaaaaaaaaaah! i hope she do well on that day! i pray i pray!

other than prepping her everyday for her concert, she has been very "manja". she will whine & cries for the slightest thing, and we really behtahan at her behavior. lately she has been crying every morning when we send her to kindy, her teacher said it's just a phase, normal thingy but we are really so stressed up every morning waking her up for school! o-m-g, please let this be JUST a growing up phase! aaaaaaaaauuummmm!

tell me lah!

am i having mid-life crisis? hahaha... i dunno, i think im having the-normal-irene-crisis. on & off i will feel crappy, donno if because of PMS or just plain sampat-ness on my end. i feel like my life has no excitement. tell me, what's the purpose of our lives? see see... im asking mangkok question again, what the hell is wrong with me!!!!!!

my hubs said i don't spend time with my lil missy. i know, and i feel like i'm the worst mom around. not loving her enuf, not spending time with her, only know how to shout at her when she did something notty or wrong. i just don't have the time! i will normally reach home around 7.30pm and that is considered early already, if not sometimes 8pm.

once i'm at home, the first thing i do is to boil water. then wash the bottles, refill drinkable water. then put in the dirty laundry, then pack lil missy's bag for school next day, her extra clothing for the daycare. then after that, pick this up, pick that up, sit down to eat dinner. luckily we catered food, so we only need to cook the rice, which hubs diligently does it everyday, thank you iloveyou! after dinner, i will wash everything, and anything. after eating, i will sweep & mop the floor, oh before i forget, in between sweeping & mopping, i will bring in the dry clothes and folds them. once i'm done with mopping, i will go to bath

after bathing, let's not forget, washing machine done washing our clothes, time for hanging. once done hanging the clothes for drying, i will look at the clock, and it will shows 11.30pm. if i'm lucky, it will show 10.30pm. i see... now i know why i just don't have the time to play with lil missy... hmmm... my time management, lousy! aaaaaaaarggggh!

everyday i do the same thing at home. everyone goes thru the same thing, i know, but i'm just damn damn bored with the same old routine. i know i know, i gotta be thankful, i got food on the table, a home to clean up, a lil missy to shout at, a hubs whom helps me with lil missy BUT i just need to rant! makes me feel better... i dunno if i can cope with 2nd baby, but i really want a another baby for us :)

oh well, enuf ranting, life goes on...
forgot to add in, work in ofis shucks too :(

Guide to a better "sane" life

Got this from a forwarded email a fren sent, probably you guys read it somewhere before, just thot i share it out with everyone. Once awhile, i need to have a reminder or wake up call like this to make me feel better about myself... read on (^^p)

Randy Pausch 47 yrs old, a computer Sc. lecturer from Mellon University, US died of pancreatic cancer in 2008, he wrote a book ‘The last lecture” before then, one of the bestsellers in 2007. In a letter to his wife Jai and his children, Dylan, Logan, and Chloe, he wrote this beautiful "guide to a better life" for his wife and children to follow. May you be blessed by his insight

Personality:

1. Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
2. Don't have negative thoughts of things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment
3. Don't over do; keep your limits
4. Don't take yourself so seriously; no one else does
5. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip
6. Dream more while you are awake
7. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need..
8. Forget issues of the past. Don't remind your partner of his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
9. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate others.
10. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present
11. No one is in charge of your happiness except you
12. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn.
Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.
13. Smile and laugh more
14. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

Community:

15. Call your family often
16. Each day give something good to others
17. Forgive everyone for everything
18. Spend time with people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6
19. Try to make at least three people smile each day
20. What other people think of you is none of your business
21. Your job will not take care of you when you are sick. Your family and friends will. Stay in touch.

Life:

22. Put GOD first in anything and everything that you think, say and do.
23. GOD heals everything
24. Do the right things
25. However good or bad a situation is, it will change
26. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up
27. The best is yet to come
28. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful
29. When you awake alive in the morning, thank GOD for it
30. If you know GOD you will always be happy. So, be happy :)

after reading this, it kinda make me felt better in a way. life isn't that bad, just gotta think about the +ve parts more than the -ve part. i wanna dedicate the above to my one & only dear brother of mine, the genius in the family, happy birthday dear Ken, may you have many many fantastic fabulous great birthday to come! i love you!
