Happy Chinese “Niu” Year

Saturday 24 January 2009 @ 4:36 pm

Tong Tong Chiang, Chinese New Year is just few days away. I’m so excited waiting for the days come, so does Marcus. He watches the CNY DVDs every day. Hubby and I also bored to hear and even know how to sing all the songs, but our little boy still very interested with those songs. LOL!!!

I guess I might take lots of photos during Chinese New Year. Luckily I have two cameras with me. I wonder if I should upgrade my system memory. Anyway, I won’t be update this blog for a week.

Here, wishing all of you and your family, Happy Niu Year, Gong Xi Fa Cai !!!


Early birthday celebration in school

Friday 23 January 2009 @ 5:59 pm

Marcus’s actual 3rd birthday will fall on the second day of Chinese New Year, which is 27th. Since it is a holiday, I decided to let him celebrate in his school today, which is also his birthday too according to the Chinese calendar.

I bought some snacks and party stuffs to be distributed among kids in his school. Of course a birthday cake too.

I had ordered his favourite cartoon cake which will celebrate on his actual birthday next week. Can anyone guess what is his birthday cake looks like ?


He was so happy and excited. He likes to blow candles and cut cake. But why he didn’t smile at all ? He always likes to show people his cool face.

Smile lah, boy boy….why so cool ??? :-P

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to Lit Ean

With his friends and party bags for each of them

With his class teacher

So simple with the puzzle, “sap sap sui” :-P

My boy showed me his birthday present when I picked him up. He can’t wait to open it. It was a yo-yo and a winnie pooh stickers from the school. He was so happy because of the present from school and the party bag from his mummy.

Invest In Insurance

Thursday 22 January 2009 @ 5:23 pm

Ever since Marcus was born, hubby and I had bought him few policies of insurance. We know about the importance of life insurance. Many of our friends are insurance agents, they always come and explain to us about new changes. Hubby has upgraded his insurance policy last year.

But still they are many people who don’t trust with insurance, just like my father and uncle. May be they are not too understand about it only. I’m sad and dissapointed with one of our friend, who is an Insurance agent, pretend doesn’t know us when we meet in the shopping mall the other days. Even we didn’t buy any insurances from her, but she can’t behave like that, somemore I know her daughter too.

Well, don’t talk about her. Chinese New Year is just few days away, we must be very happy to celebrate it with our family and friends, right? Let’s talk back about insurance, I still feel that it’s one of the best investment too. May be I got the right policy with me.

So, if you have loved ones who depend on you, do think about insurance. You can get a free quote to know more about it. Who really don’t know what will happen in the next minute.

Lost but found

Tuesday 20 January 2009 @ 6:46 pm

I have been very busy since my kid starts his school day. I seldom update my blogs especially on my bento posts. I miss my bento gadgets though I bought many and keep them in the kitchen drawer.  I know my hubby must say me wasted money. What to do, his wife likes all those lovely bento gadgets. I guess one of my friend is more crazy than me. I promised to myself that I will make bento as much as I could after Chinese New Year.

May be I’m too busy lately, I always forget things. I wonder if the effect of epidural. LOL!!! I seldom take off my wedding ring, and I did it when I went for manicure and pedicure last week. I didn’t know I’m not wearing it until hubby asked me where is my ring. Guess what, I hardly recall back where I put my ring. Gosh, I was so forgetful.

Hubby and I looked around, searched the drawers and etc, but we still can’t find it. I was so sad and angry with myself.  Suddenly, Marcus showed me something. I really no mood to see it, but it’s my ring. Where he found it? Is he hid the ring? He told me that he found it on my bed. Then I remembered that I accidentally put it on my bed before I leave. See, how forgetful and careless of me.

The ring is so meaningful to me. Luckily my kid found it back for me. I’m not happy too even if hubby says that he will buy me a Hip Hop Jewelry, Diamond Rings or Diamond Jewelry. Anyway, if you would like to look for jewelry for your loved ones, you can check through the webiste. They offer great quality of jewelry and customer services.  

New toy

Monday 19 January 2009 @ 5:29 pm

I have been looking for a wooden block set for my kid long time ago. I can’t find the right one at shopping malls, even in Toys”R”us. Hubby and I have stopped buying him toys nowadays, he has lots of lots it until we can open a toy shop. LOL!!!

Until last weekend, when we went to buy new clothes at one of the men’s boutique, I found it. It’s a educational toy shop which next to the boutique. The sales girl who I also know took out the wooden block set and taught him how to play while hubby and I busy looking for new clothes. :-P

Marcus so curious and excited with this toy and sat there played with the sales girl. He refused to go, so we decided to buy one for him. Anyway, I also wanted to buy it too.

Colorful wooden block set (100 pieces)

I guess I bought the right toy for him. He likes it so much, may be it’s still new for him, but it’s good for child’s imagination and cretivity to build up their own stuffs. He still doesn’t know well how to build up a castle, but this :

After two days progress, he knows how to build a small castle after seeing his daddy made it. He gets frustrated too if not meet his taste.

Anyway, we did our CNY shopping last night. I saw many discount furniture shops on the way back home. Some people may change their home furniture before CNY, but I don’t think we need it. I rather save the money for our next family trip.

Bento Fun #22 : Busy weeks

Friday 16 January 2009 @ 6:52 pm

I have been very busy lately and really no time to update my blogs. What make me so busy since I’m a SAHM? I’m selling CNY hampers at my father’s shop, somemore I have to do house chores since my maid was back to Indo weeks ago. I don’t have to get myself Lipovox. Afterall, I want to gain weight but not to loss weight. LOL!!!

I don’t even have much time to prepare bento for the past two weeks. Besides that, my camera charger is spoilt and waiting for it to be arrived from KL. I can’t snap any photos even if I have time to make it. Now, I got a new camera from hubby as New Year’s gift, so I’m trying my best to catch up with my bento posts as much as I could.

I don’t plan my bento creation, I just do it as I like. I’m not a professional bento maker like other Japanese mummies though I don’t have much time for it. Simple decoration already make my kid happy.  

Fried rice with carrot, corns and eggs, strawberries, seedless grapes, filament stick and edamames.

Yes, I went to 100 yen shop again and I can’t stop myself to buy some bento stuffs even I seldom fix bentos for my kid nowadays. I like the colourful leaves baran.  I should stop to buy those stuffs again. I have many in my kitchen drawer. :-P

My cheeky boy

I’m using the new camera for the above photos. Can or not? It’s just few hundreds but still fine to use, right? I just think it is waste to spend money on those professional cameras.

I’m still yet go for CNY shopping. Frankily, I don’t like to go for the shopping to buy drinks, cookies, snacks and etc. I’m more interested to go buy new clothes, shoes, handbags, cosmetics. LOL!!!

Everything ME

Thursday 8 January 2009 @ 6:14 pm

My boy likes to stick with me like glue all the while. Of course I like to be with him but sometimes I just don’t have my ME time to do my personal things unless he goes to school and bed. I’m not complaining, but feel glad. :-P

I wonder if your kids also the same, I mean always stick to you whenever you go. Here are some ways that Marcus follows me whenever I want to do something or go elsewhere:

- Mummy, I want to wear this (my bra) while I’m changing. *slap head* (he doesn’t understand it’s for girls and women), but after explained to him few times, he got what I meant.

- Mummy, I want to put lotion, lipstick, face powder and etc……whenever he sees me apply them.

- Mummy, I want to go in too. (I’m taking shower)

- Mummy, I want to sit here and see you poo. (gosh, how are you going to poo while your kid looking at you?)

- Mummy, I want mummy…..

There are many more funny things which everything about mummy. It’s just so sweet to hear him say such things to me. I feel our mother son relationship getting closer and closer, can’t be separated. LOL!!!

School bag exchanged

Tuesday 6 January 2009 @ 6:08 pm

Normally I will open Marcus’s school bag once he gets into my car after school. I want to make sure if he drinks water and finish what I pack for him. Yesterday when I opened his school day, I noticed that the things inside aren’t belong to him.

Mummy : Ohhh, this is not your school bag.

Boy : (looking at the school bag) This is Jia Yee one. (His classmate)

I called teacher as to take it back, no use to take it home, right? Afterall, it is not belongs to Marcus. Blamed me wrote his name inside the school bag and not outside. No wonder the new teacher took the wrong one. Normally the school bags can’t be mixed up as Marcus is more clean and new compare with his classmate even though both are same. LOL!!! I told him to remind his teacher as to change it back tomorrow.

Today, he just bring a lunch box to school. The teacher took his school bag out and we talked for a while. When the teacher wanted to take him down, he suddenly cried, took his school bag and wanted to go home. :-) He is fine all the while. I wonder if he thinks it’s time to go home and not to school?

School reopens : Day 1

Monday 5 January 2009 @ 11:17 am

Today is the first day for Marcus back to his school after a long school holidays. I thought I have difficulty to wake him up this morning, but surprisingly, he woke up without play a tantrum. He even asked me to help him change his school uniform faster and he wanted to drink his milk in the car. He doesn’t want to be late, but actually we’re late. :-P I never ever think that he is so good boy on the first day to school. I’m really happy.

While on the way driving him to school, yes, he even can sit quietly on car seat again, we have such conversation.

Boy : Mummy, use two hands drives car, ok? (opppsss, i’m using one hand that time, LOL!!!)

Mummy : Ok….sorry. (quickly using two hands)

Mummy : Later mummy brings you down, ok?

Boy : No, you go buy vege, fruits, ice cream, I go down myself.

Mummy : sure no need mummy ?

Boy : hmmm….

He was doing great and willing to follow his teacher to bring him in, but still I came down and hold his hands went in together. He looked steady even there’s a new boy crying. I waited outside for few minutes before I leave the school.

I will pick him up earlier today as hubby and I busy to settle some issues for my silly maid in KL. I’m so eager to see him with his smiling face when I pick him later.   

A boring weekend

Saturday 3 January 2009 @ 12:47 pm

Hubby is away for seminar in KL. It is a boring weekend for Marcus and me. I bring Marcus go to my parents house as my sister and niece are there too this two days. I guess kids will have fun. I just let Marcus play as much as he likes though school will reopen next week.

I can’t blog much lately as I can’t snap any photos. My camera charger is spoilt and send for repair. Till now still no news. Hubby said he will buy me a new camera as new year’s gift. But how about the old camera? I think it’s waste to get another one where the old camera is fine to use. I prefer use the money to buy some sports gifts for Marcus or save it for our next family trip to Hong Kong.

Marcus miss his daddy much, keep asking when he will back. Anyway, he will back tomorrow. Hopefully Marcus can see his daddy before he goes to bed.
