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!

i first found out about the mph event in midvalley via rachel's post on her fb wall. it was shouting to all october birthday babies, so i'm one, why not. i then emailed mph & got a reply later saying i'm the 1st 100 person chosen. whoaaaa... never thot i was gonna get in, should have register my brother's name, as he is an october baby too o.O

we were required to be in mph midvalley
on the 10/10/10 by 9am to register
ourself... aiyoyo... so early!

it was a small celebration among the 100
participants & their family
we got a goody bag inclusive of hand carry
luggage bag, magazines,
and free 2 years of MPH membership

then there were speeches, Q&A segment
after all those, the interesting part came
all 100 of us were required to hand pick a cupcake
which has a special token in each of it

gold coin - rm50
silver red stripped coin - rm100
red coin - rm1000

yours truly got a gold coin, bleak!

family day indeed

on friday after work, i rushed home thinking i could not make it already, only to reach our destination just on time! suesue collected the tickets for us, and we just had the right time for daddy to find a miracle parking spot, and us to grab the drinks & popcorn

we went to catch the latest cartoon in cinema, Sammy's Adventures. it was a feel good cartoon for the kids. lil missy didn't really watch with full attention, i think she prefers disney cartoons. me & lil missy is very much looking forward to the new cartoon Tangled, now this would be a cool cartoon to look forward too! after our movie, we head off to a new oldtown nearby to have late supper & to chit chat

the next day was a slow day for us in the morning, as my company is having family day in the afternoon at around 4pm, so we had the whole half day at leisure. we took our own sweet time to lunch, walk around at a nearby mall to kill them & off we go to bukit kiara equestrian club for the company event

there were many activities
to choose from...

and i'm like so blur...
dunno where to start from...

eventually, we go to booth by booth
and try out all the games, well almost!

there were long queues everywhere,
luckily lil missy was OK when
we were queuing

lil missy was stucked to the nintendo wii
didn't wanna let go the guitar
when finished *smack head*

the event ended up at 8pm, and we went back with a goody bag. every kid is entitled to a goody bag, no luck with the lucky draw though, 1st prize was rm2000 parkson shopping vouchers! ppppfffffftttt! aaaaaaaaaah... no luck! we then rushed back home, went to have late dinner, went home to clean up, rest a bit & then shoot off to the airport to fetch our neighbour frens whom was coming back from bandung. their flight was delayed much to our dismay, we ended up in mcd killing some time. it was such a tiring day but certainly a good day!

the big 30!

dang! I'm in my 30(s)... no more 20s... shucks! hahahaha... nah it doesn't bother me, age is just an age. hahaha... easy to say ey? oh well life goes on, I'm wiser now... i hope! wakakakakaka! my birthday was on saturday, but the treats started earlier itself with treats from my beloved frens! this woman never failed to surprise me with her witty post!

meals at my favourite eatery!

thanks to WT, GQ & Lizzy,
my best buddies at work...

then i got a surprise parcel on my birthday! i won a twilight eclipse soundtrack from a contest from a local radio station which i can't remember! things are the best when you least expect them to be, agree with me? then suesue told me to meet her outside to pass me this! those lovely sweet owl cupcakes! i got these sweet cupcakes when we were out to catch the below movie! what a coincidence ey? hehehehe!

on my actual birthday, we didn't do anything romantic or cool, no diamond rings, no expensive bag, no present :( we just went to the cinema to catch the latest animation movie, Legends of the Guardians. me & hubs enjoyed the show, but lil missy could not sit still, nevertheless we managed to finish the movie in one peace! phew!

after the movie, we head to our neighbour's cosy home just to chill out and we had a sleep-over just for the fun of it. haha! we played some card games, ps3 move which it's kinda cool!

lil missy really likes it!

then today we did not even go out till dinner! our neighbour cooked some light lunch and have us over. as usual we hang out the whole day over in their house, went for a swim & later had dinner in the newly open huge oldtown around the neighborhood

i like their new menu, i had their steam chicken rice with mushroom which was yummy, but eating at oldtown is no longer a cheap affair. sigh, oh well... we sempat put in a game or two of uno cards, our latest obsession! i really have a lovely weekend, which we didn't spend a lot, just a little for my birthday celebration, how did i celebrate my birthday on the eve? wait & see...

sawadekaa! @ Day 4

the 4th day was our last day in bangkok, sad to say... uuuuwaaaaaa, bangkok, we will miss you greatly. woke up around 9am-ish, clean up, and went for our last breakie in baiyoke. after breakie i thought i wanna go do manicure cus didn't have the time to do it the previous days. them i decided not to do it, cus was quite rushing as we need to leave the hotel around 11.30am

so we walked around outside the hotel & have coffee at a nearby black canyon cafe. we only left with 480baht on our last day! hehehe... such a shame man, so paiseh! hahaha! luckily there is a train which cost only 15baht each person to reach airport! save a bit there...

after checked out, the bellboy drove us to the nearest point for the train station as we have heavy luggage with us, using a buggy :) thank God for the help from him, if not we would have suffer lugging our bags and walk 15mins towards the station! oh yeah, we came to bangkok with our bags weighing at 15kg, and going back to malaysia with 26kg, not too bad ey?

upon reaching airport, we took our own sweet time to check in, walked around, and went thru the custom. we have around less than 300baht left for lunch as our flight is only at 3.15pm. so we were pretty lucky as the we could find food for the money we had, just nice! when we board the plane, all i have with me was 0.30baht! no kidding, I'm serious! i basically shop till empty pocket! wahahahahaha... seifor!

feast your eyes and plan for
your own bangkok trip soon!

here my loots for the 4 days 3 nights trip we
spent in the great city of Thailand :)
we will definitely come back!
dunno when only, haha!
