Awesome night

I had a whole afternoon child free to enjoy lunch, pedicure and hair wash. And I attended a wedding together with few buddies..

We get to catch up a little. Gossip a little and look good for the night! What more could I ask for? Another girls night out???

Question: why some good looking and kind girl can’t seem to be able to meet Mr Right?????

Congratulation Alvin & Lilie

I receive an invitation from Lilie (buddy since secondary) 3months back. It came unannounced and we all know what happen lar ha…. We were all very excited about it and finally it’s the weekend of her wedding already.

We departed to JB on friday night, 9pm. Yes we have to depart that late as I didn’t want Manfred to skip kindie and Shichida. By the time Shichida end and I reached home it’s already 7pm. Dinner, showered and loading and grap caffeine fix and we are on the road at 9pm sharp!

We reach JB around 12.30am. The hotel was great. Spacious, clean, and comfortable for a 4star hotel. We stayed in Grand Paragon and because Lilie helped make a group booking we only need to pay RM180 per night.

Everything provided but I don’t use it cause the smell too strong to my liking.

Thanks Liv Teh the buddy

I been waiting for my parcel. I purchase some apparel via online for my boys. I got it shipped to my buddy’s place in US. And she is kind enough to help mr courier back to Malaysia. Finally I receive it today! Yay!

It save me some money buying from abroad especially when they have sales. It will save even bigger bucks if my buddy can hand carry back for me when she
come back next year.

Then I shall repay her back by feasting pork noodles with her. Here’s the things i got for both my boys. I have to try to be fair so each got 4 pieces.
I got them each a long sleeves shirt, a polo t- shirt, and a long sleeves coats. Then I got a long pant for Manfred and extra long sleeves shirt for Jude

My mother’s day pressie

I was treated a very good mother’s day present… not a physical one, but something more special. I request to have a “day out” with one of my friend. Child free, hassle free and mind free… On 8May Saturday, my friend Charmaine came fetch me from mum’s house at 10am. We head off to SS2 for dim sum… chit chat a bit then went off to 1utama for shopping..

Finally I have a “mama friend” who understand what motherhood and how it’s like to shop when you become 1.. When you go out with non mama friend, chances are they have plenty of time…. This friend of mine now know why I walk even faster, pee even faster and do things so so so thunder speed after 2 boys come along(FYI, I was miss pee queen coz by the time my friend take off their panties in the toilet, I am already out there washing my hand).

With kids, every thing must be done in super duper speed. Hence we eat, then shopping also gotto be very objective driven. List of thing to buy, targeted retail shop to go, how long to spend there, when to grab that cuppa and when to go to “potty break” and etc….. then got to plan latest what time have to leave the mall before we both have to deal with leaking breast……

WE had a blast eating breakfast, shopping at 1utama(went to forever 21 although we are almost 31!) mark n spencer, dorothy perkins and some baby apparel store….. We able to cross off things we want to buy on list! ON TIME! And before we leave, we grab some muffin and juice and coffeee to feast on the way home… As for me, I get to “milk” myself as I was blessed that I don’t have to drive that day!

I have absolute fun although it’s only for half day…… And when i went back to my mum’s place to pick up my M&J, there’re gone??!! Coz hubby took them all back to cheras.. hahahahahah again I was child free for another few more hours…. Thank you my parent and hubby who took care of my boys while I go kai kai…

There are what I got for myself.. I also got 2 sets of baby wear for Jude which he wore on the next day for his 1st birthday.

Baby Charlize – update

Remember I welcomed my buddy charmaine’s little princess, Charlize? Charlize is almost 3 months old now!!!

Again this is a little update of my best buddy’s baby! And 1 very good news to share is, mama Charmaine manage to fully breastfeed Charlize!!! Good job mama Charmaine! IT was again a rocky road… Friends and family gave charmaine so much support that I also see she is so strong, determined and willing to sacrifies for her little babies!

I went to her place last week and admired her STOCKS! 🙂 She even give away some of her EBM to another friends’ sister in law cause she experience low milk supply too…

Charlize is a very bright and intelligent baby.. Challenging for mama Charmaine! but i am sure she will do just fine..

Xmas eve 2009

Yay! It’s the day of the year again!

Back to those dating days, Hubby and I would gather some friends, dressed up and go nice restaurant to have Xmas eve dinner, then we will either go partying, clubbing or sometimes we might go church before we head to KL for some crazy nights!!

Now days, Xmas is spent in a more cozy way with close family, home cook food…… This year, month before Xmas still we don’t hear any plan from family what to do on Xmas eve. And we received an invitation to have potluck at Edel’s place. So we say YES!

I been waiting for day to come………… been so so excited about it. Mainly because there’ll be friends, there’ll be friend’s kid(although only 1 or 2) and it’s the season greeting times where by we can feast and catch up and feast again!! what’s more is it’s held in the house so it’s even more enjoyable.

The menu itself make me drool when I received email from Edel. When asked who want to prepare what dish, I quick quick volunteer to bring dessert cauze I really hopeless when comes to cooking…. and I really don’t want to cook with 2 kids to handle…. lazy I am..

The Xmas menu is as below:- We almost forgot to snap picture before we start eating!! Phew! That close and we might end up with shots of missing chicken wings on the plate.. hahahaha

Food from left to right,

roasted chicken wings, Chicken Mushroom Pie with Mash potatoes topping, Aglio Olio  Pasta, chicken Fajitas with guacamole, Roasted Vegetables,  Salad,  Bruchetta, Fruit tarts and Cheese tarts. We have Chocolate temptation cake (not shown in the picture) and Ribena Lemon Frizz for drinks too!!! Are you drooling already? LOL

The party was suppose to start at 7pm. But due to the downpour,  most of us are late. Myself also reached Edel house at 7.30pm at least. And I was the 2nd to arriveD!! hahahah Although party starts a little late and everyone was already starving, but it’s worth the wait cause the food was great!!!! And want to know how hungry we are?> Look at Jude, he already started without all the guests! 🙂

The biscuits I brought for him was not enough, so I dig some mashed potato and let him have a little!! Such a treat for baby Jude!!

After a “wholesome” meal….. that’s what little babies do….. Nice chair to nap on…… He napped for more than 45 minutes!!

As for Manfred, he found his very best buddy that night, Damien… They clicked the moment they met as if they been friends forever!! they met back in Manfred’s 2nd birthday celebration. Ai may told me that Damien been asking to go to Manfred’s birthday party again cause it was FUN for him!! LOL

There’s a moment where Manfred was hooked on something and sit on his own, So hubby told him

Hubby: Manfred, go play with kor kor lar.

Manfred: Damien lar..

What he meant was we should call Damien by his name, instead of kor kor. LOL I just love hearing kids talk!!!

There’s also gift exchange at the end of the feast!

And we lazed to chat a little, give our tummy some time to digest those foods… And we still have a chocolate cake awaits in the fridge. When they took the cake out, my friends are all so kind and they did a great job entertaining Damien and Manfred, they let them both blow candles and sing them happy birthday song. 🙂 I tell you, Manfred loves birthday song, if can he would wan to hear birthday song and blow candles!!

And chocolate cake, another Manfred’s favorite, he ate quite a bit… He even “sold” himself out for the cake.. Edel told me he kisses her in order to get more chocolate cake! hahahaha

And here is some of the group photos taken. Hard to get good shot with kids! heheeh but it’s the memory that count right?

Baby Zoey with Aunt Lilian, and Aunt Michelle.

IT was a great night I had.. hubby had fun too, Manfred and Jude enjoyed!! They dozed off on the way home… Thank goodness I can just showered and sleeps right after the party as I already have a helper to unpack.  But just so you know it took me a while to fall asleep due to the incident.

Want to share your Xmas eve celebration with me????

Xmas eve eve!!

YEAH!! I can’t help to feel very extremely superb EXCITED!!! It’s Xmas eve eve!!! Hahahahahah But down side is, hubby still working till tomorrow. And he is in Melaka some more.. Miss him dearly..

We are having a potluck party on Xmas eve at Lady Twong house. I used to go lady twong house very frequent back in school days.. Nowdays everyone busy with work and I am in KL, I really rarely go to her house.. Guilt guilt guilt! That’s why when she host a party at her house, I say let’s do it!

I being the hopeless one when it comes to cooking, I am only bringing some take out… Dessert.. hahahahaha Chocolate tempation from Fruity Cake house. I wanted to buy White Chocolate M academia but SR decided to discontinued it. Hubby and I got kinda disappointed. 😦

I will try to have hubby snapped more photo during the potluck.. Especially those yummy yum yum. I tell you, most my friends cooks really well… And I always salute their ability to cook!!!!!

Xmas party here I come!! I would like to wish everyone a Merry Merry 2009 Xmas!!! May your “wish list” got discovered by Santa and he’ll come down your Chimney!!!!

From: Chris, Lynette, Manfred and Jude to everyone out there!!!!
