He lets me win

He bought me a mini iPad not long ago. Caused I said I wanted it. He procrastinate at first, I gave in.. I didn’t sulk. But the next day he suddenly bought it home.. :p

Been using it and its really good. Despite he bought it, today he asked me in the sweetest way… Dear, can I borrow your mini iPad? Aw.. Although he knew the most I will be using it to candy crush, FB and blog, he could have just snapped it and dash out from
Home. But he made the effort to be real nice and sweet…

I once told him, my greatest achievement, (before becoming a mother) was married to him… I still feel the same way…

5th Anniversary

Last Friday was our wedding 5th anniversary. I took a day off, And went shopping with my parents and my helper and the boys. Done shopping we back to KL and wait for hub to come home.

M&J didn’t nap at all. It didn’t help when Jude almost doozed off at 4pm but my dad offer him a lolli. I screamed at the top of my lung “Where did he get a lolli?!” And true enough they didn’t nap. But turn out it was a blessing.

Hub got home late and we went out at 8pm. M&J Doozed off in the car. Thank lord we loaded both strollers into the car. And we had a real peaceful dinner at TGIF Pavilion. 20110613-075359.jpg
Waiter spilled sauce on my boys when cleaning up. He apologized, so it didn’t spoilt our evening. And the boys woke up for dessert. Brownies is really all time favorite dessert of ours!

We walked around window shop for a while. Found a old lady in her 70s, with her little granddaughter, got lost in the lift cause her daughter went out and old lady didn’t recall which floor they were suppose to get off…. We took them out and help to call to her daughter. A tiny tiny good deed done and it made me a very happy person that night.

5 years.. 5 is a big number to me. I know there’s many more years to come(if the world doesn’t end at 2012… hahahaha) but 5 to me is a big achievement. I still love my man so so much, and I am grateful for the man he is, for being a great fathers to the boys. Although some day he is real grouchy and could be a real pain in ass… but he always will say sorry and I always forgive him.20110613-080045.jpg20110613-080056.jpg

12th courtship anniversary

Yes. If hub hasn’t ask me to marry him, we would have be in courtship for 12years. (of course I will not allow him to be in C status for 12 years). Lol We went away for half day. To “Fun at the peak”. Weather was great when we arrived so we change plan and get tickets for outdoor theme park. See how nice the weather is? cold breeze, blue sky….. and we start off our day by having McD picnic. It’s the most stress FREE family outing.. Up to date. M&J had so much FUN! Pure FUN… We hopped on to almost all the family friendly ride. Antique car was great. We ride on separate car and let the boys drive. Yes first time hub and I were the passenger. Anyway you just need to accelerate, my 20mths could do it too! Manfred freaked out at dinosaur land. Shuts his eyes whole time. But he is fine. Jude on the other hand was a poor boy. Hop on to rodeo ride only to realize it wasn’t what he “signed up” for. Cried the whole time…. Well, I could only wait and pray it end soon…. Crying toddler…. Daddy also can just video tape it… *mean parent* You know what melts our heart the most? Seeing them both on kids bumper car. Manfred is so good at maneuvering the car while Jude so slumber and enjoy while korkor bring him for a ride.. We had ice-cream and hot & roll at the theme park. You know how nice it is to eat ice-cream at Genting… At least my boys (all 3 of them) like it! It was relaxing, they both willing to walk quite a bit on their own, very co-operative, listen to us, takes instruction, learnt patient(after a while), have a little discipline… And the best was, it was a weekday, not crowded, doesn’t need to Q for rides, and so so so enjoyable. I love Jude’s expression and eyes. Gorgeous! and there my boys admiring toys at a stall… It was a great day. I knew they both had awesome FUN Times. Hub and I enjoyed it too. We weren’t stress nor tired. We grab coffee before we leave. I gave them lollipop in the car, and they both fall asleep eating it. So when lolli becomes a sleeping pill. We know they are exhausted, and parent are HAPPY!

A night out

We hasn’t been to KL at night for so long. We used to be night owl that leaves home at 12am for outing. It become impossible after M&J come along. I am not complaining and I seriously don’t mind.

Just that today I am glad that I did it again, with the men of my life, Chris, Manfred and Jude. And we are loving it. We witness the crowd of ppl craze over newly opened UNIQLO, we witness the crowd at bintang walk since it’s a deepavali eve. We stood by the road side to admire a Ferrari on Manfred’s request. We roamed blindly on road and notice newly refurbished LOT10 that taken over by YTL. We grab some great bargain at Debenhams. We had a great night!

Happy Deepavali my
Dear blogger friends..

Story of crappy breakfast & burnt biscuits

WARNING! LONG POST But real life story.. Worth reading…

I love eating Gardenia raisin toast”em with a sunflower spread. One morning I prepared toast”em with sunflower spread and ask hub to join me for breakfast.

The moment he saw the bread, he said something hurtful to me:”like that how to eat??! No egg no hotdog!!”
The tone was really bad and I dont know what has gotten to him. I went ahead and fried an egg for him. I later told him how crappy I felt for the way he spoke to me. I felt as if he was speaking to his servant.

Few weeks later, Hub forwarded an article to me and I would love to share with you all…..

Mom liked to make breakfast food for dinner every now and then.
And I remember one night in particular when she had made breakfast
after a long, hard day at work. That evening, mom placed a plate of eggs,
sausage and extremely burned biscuits in front of dad.
I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed.

All dad did was reach for his biscuit, smiled at mom and asked me how my
day was at school. I don’t remember what I told him that night,
but I do remember watching him smear butter and jelly on that biscuit
and ate every bite.

When I got up from the table, I remember hearing mom apologize to dad
for burning the biscuits. And I’ll never forget what he said:
Honey, I love burned biscuits.

Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good night and asked him if he
really liked his biscuits burned. He wrapped me in his arms and said,
“Your Momma put in a hard day at work today and she’s real tired.
And besides – a little burnt biscuit never hurt anyone!”

You know, life is full of imperfect things…..and imperfect people.
I’m not the best at hardly anything, and I forget birthdays and
anniversaries just like everyone else.

What I’ve learned over the years is that learning to accept each others’
faults – and choosing to celebrate each others differences – is one of the
most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and lasting relationship.

Because in the end, you are the master of your own life, to be happy or
unhappy, to be positive or negative.

We could extend this to any relationship. In fact, understanding is the base
of any relationship , be it a husband-wife or parent-child or friendship.

Don’t put the key to your happiness in someone else’s pocket –
keep it in your own.

I relate the article to the earlier incident and I asked hub if he had read it. He said yes and he promised he will appreciate more and talk nicer even if I ever make him crappy breakfast again…

No one is perfect.. I am not perfect. I
Can only try my best and it would always be nice and encouraging to know one is being appreciated..

My birrhday @ Dubrovnik

It was a weekday… Hubby arrange to come back from Melaka to go dinner with me…

We been planning to go Dubrovnik but no chance. And I’m glad we went without the boys…. It’s was too ‘romantic’ to bring kids… (not that we romantically eat, but just the atmos).

The soup and the burger somun was great ! I love the bread so much….I had steak and later realize their special was roast lamb which require pre-booking….
