Today is My Lucky Day

From the title of this post, I think you already know that I got good news want to share with you. Yeah, today is my lucky day..... why I said so????? This is because I won 2 wahmies cloth wipes from the Christmas Give Away which was organized by Bonnie. A big thanks to this lovely and generous mommy for her effort. I admitted that luck is not always by my side for the past as I never won any prizes in my life and this is the first time I won prizes. Maybe from now on, good luck will be following me....heheheh!!!!

Second good news to share with you all is that my IELTS result finally arrived this afternoon. I feel so scare when I saw the Pos Express envelope was in my letter box when I got home just now. Without waiting any longer, I straight away open the envelope and check for the result...... Hooray, my nightmare is over, I scored the band required and I don't need to re-take the test again. That is really a good news to me as I don't wish to have any pressure from this IELTS again. I can finally enjoy my pregnancy now!!!!!!!

Hope more good news to come...... maybe I should go and buy lottery now, LOL!

@ 10 weeks

Went for my checkup on last Wednesday and this was the progress of my little one inside me.

Length: 2.73cm
Heartbeat: 176 beats per minute

Head, hands and foot were seen through the ultrasound scan. For myself, I only gain 0.5kg from my last visit which was 2 weeks ago. I'm so surprise about the gain as I thought I will gain at least 2 to 3 kg because I ate a lots during this 2 weeks time.

Kendra was so excited when she saw the scan and when we got home, she keep on showing us her tummy and told us that she also got a baby inside....LOL!!! One thing I need to compliment her is that she was very behave during the scan, when the nurse try to give her a sweet and this was how she answered to the nurse....."Thank you, I don't want".....even my gynae also praise her for this as he seldom see a kids that will say NO to sweets/candies.

Looking forward to my next visit.....!!!!!

4 Great Holiday Gift Ideas


Christmas is approaching and have you done with your shopping gift list? I'm done for the gift to my sweetie pie and my mom's but I'm running out of idea what to buy for my dear hubby. Since I'm a SAHM(stay at home mom) now and got no income, I will go for something which is within my budget and I wish I don't over spend on this as the Chinese New Year is around the corner too. After some survey, I found this offer from Pexagon is very attractive. From now until the end of the year, there is offering 20% off 4 awesome personalized holiday gift ideas!

I plan to get hubby something which is unique and personalized holiday gifts for this Xmas. I think a personalized thumb drive is just perfect for him. From a starting price at $7.99 after discount, with 14 colors available and up to 16GB in capacity with FREE custom laser engraving!!

At the same time, I want to get my dad few personalized pens too! As he always left his pen somewhere else and can't find it by the end of day. With the engraving on the pens, he can easily identify his pens.

So, place your order for it now before it's too late!!!!


No. 2 is on the way

I got no idea how should I start my post...... Yeah, I'm 9 weeks preggie with my 2nd one. As most of you may knew it from the ticker I posted at my blog not long ago. So, I would like to take this opportunity to spread the good news of mine.

Everything were fine and so far I didn't came across any morning sickness and hope it will not come and visit me too!!!! My appetite is SUPER good. Before I'm preggie, I seldom took my lunch and now, I can't even skip any of my meals and the portion must be BIG enough to fulfill my hunger most of the time.

My next appointment will be on next Wednesday and I'm looking forward to this day. As I've promised Kendra to bring her along for my next visit to show her how's the baby looks. She is looking for this day to come too as the previous visit nothing much can see from the scan. Whenever I ask her whether she want a brother or sister, sure she will answered me she want a sister...... and this is what hubby and I wish to have too!

My Dad's 60th Birthday

We celebrated my dad's 60th birthday on last Saturday and this was a big day that everyone of us looking forward for so long.

At first, we thought that Felix might not be joining us as his wife was down with high fever when they were in KL. I'm so glad to know that they changed their plan to going back to Singapore and joining us for the birthday dinner instead. This was really a good news to my dad as we can feel that he was so disappointed at first when he knew that his son and grandson didn't happen to come back to celebrate his birthday with him. Felix and his family drove back to Ipoh on Friday.

The night finally came and Kendra was so excited to present her cake to her gong gong. She was so happy during the dinner and keep on "stick" to her beloved gong gong. When Felix and family arrived, all the focus were on them especially his son - Rafael. This is the first time Rafael came back to Ipoh and all our relatives never see him before.

Here are some photo taken during the dinner...........

Madagascar Fever

Yupe...... Madagascar is her 2nd favourite after Shrek. When she first saw the Madagascar II advertisement on TV, she was so excited and keep on singing "I like to move it, move it......" Until her grandpa came and ask me what she want actually.... LOL!

I got a copy of the latest catalog of Tupperware and so happy to see the Madagascar items. Without think twice, I drove to the nearest Tupperware office with Kendra to grab the items. Initially, I just want to get a set of the tumbler and the One Touch Topper set. Too bad that the One Touch Topper set is a PWP item and need to spend RM50 from this range to get it. So, I thought of going home with empty hands since I don't have the intention to get 4 tumbler just for the One Touch Topper. Kendra was so disappointed when I told her that we are going home without any purchase of the Madagascar items. She start to show her pity face and keep sitting on the floor and don't let me to bring her home. The shop owner can't stand to see her pity face and allow me to purchase the One Touche Topper set without the required purchase amount. She was happily home with her "Alex" tumbler at the end.

Other than the Tupperware items, we lso get her the toys from McDonald. So far, only collected 3 pcs and still waiting for the others to be release. And the cute hairband is from McDonald too!

We brought her to the cinema on last Sunday for the show and she was so excited. Before this, I had told her that when we go to cinema, we will have pop corn, cheezel, coke....... that's why she is so looking forward to the show. After the show when we were walking to the car park, She told her daddy :"Tomorrow we come again ar...." Hubby and I can feel how she enjoy herself for the show and promise her to get her the DVD once it's available.

She is Diapers Free

It has been a week Kendra didn't put on any diapers for the past one week. At first, I'm scare to take off her diapers at night as I haven't get any waterproof sheet to start get this big project started. But, from my observation over the past few weeks, her diapers were dry on the next day morning. Hubby insisted to take off her diapers and give it a try.

We will asked her to go to the toilet before she go to bed and when she wake up in the next day morning, we will ask her to go to the toilet again. Phew!!!! She did it without fail for the past one week and we are so proud of her.

Now, my problem is how to get rid of the left over diapers in my store room. Maybe will sell it below the market price...... wait for my post ya!!!!

After I read a post from her blog, I got the inspiration to bake my very first Cheesecake this week. Although the cake looks a bit weird but the taste was good than what I'm expected.... yummy!!!

Carlsberg Web TV

My dad is a super fans of football and he could sleep few hours a day just for the football. On weekend, he will only stay at home and stick in front of the TV for his football matches.

Lately, hubby told me that Carlsberg have launched a web tv channel named www.partofthegame.tv. Lots of football information and video clips can be found here.

Maybe I should share this site with my dad so he will have more variety to watch his matches!!!

Bento #5

This Bento was not packed for Kendra but for her daddy instead. Hope he will finish it during his lunch time later. I just simply fried the rice with some hams and mixed vege and layer it with some lettuce. The coleslaw was prepared yesterday and I can't find a small cup to hold it so I just use the lettuce (again) to hold it....heheheh!! The appetizer will be the kiwi as there are still plenty in the fridge!!!! I thought of prepare a bottle of apple juice for him too but he refuse to bring it. So, this is the only food for his lunch later.....enjoy ya!!!!

She Want To Be A Good Girl

After I told her that I don't like to hear the "Sorry" from her, this is what she will said when she did a mistake now.

This is the conversation between us........

Kendra: GOOD GIRL!!!!

Huggies Tent

Hooray!!! Finally I managed to redeem this tent for Kendra before the closing date. A big thanks to Amanda and Macy who willing to share with me their polybags so I don't need to buy another bags of diapers just for the redemption. Since Kendra only put on her diapers at night and I think my current stock are really a lots to me. Only the Mamy Poko pants, I think there are at least 10 packets in my room.

See, Kendra was so happy with her new tent until you can't see her eyes in one of the photo below..... hahahah!!!!

Bento #4

Again I'm preparing a simple and light Bento for Kendra to bring to her gong gong's house on last Saturday.It served as a snack for her after her breakfast. It took about 10 minutes for me to pack it.

Inside the box, there are 2 pineapple tart, 2 cheese crackers with almond, a chocolate almond cookies (baked by myself) and some kiwis.

KWSP Member's Investment Withdrawal

The minimum Basic Saving amount in Account 1 for the Investment Withdrawal had been reduced from RM50k to a lower amount depend on your current age. I did not aware of this change until I came across an radio advertisement on my way to fetch Kendra today. I think it might be a good news to share with you all.

Since the market are so bad now and I think it's a good time to stock up using the fund from our EPF (rather to fork out some money from our pocket)....heheheh!!!!

You may now check your amount that can be invested here and have more details on the withdrawal here.

Need Glasses?

Eyeglasses are expensive nowadays as one of my friend told me that she paid RM800 for her new glasses. OMG, I never paid such a huge amount for an eyeglass in my life.

After I read the article from Chicago Tribune, I found an online prescription eyeglasses store for cheaper frame and lens. From their website, I got to know that actually I can have few pairs of glasses with the amount my friend used to pay for her glasses. From rimless to plastic frame and single vision eyeglasses to complete progressive eyeglasses, you name it and they have it. Tons of frames for you to choose from with a super low price started at $8.oo. You must be wondering why they are able to sell their glasses at such low price. Zenni manufactures their own frames and sell directly to the customer. With this, no middleman and advertising fees are impose on the cost.

I need to get a backup pair of eyeglasses for myself and I think Zenni Optical is a wise choice to go for. Maybe I will get few pairs more so that I can have more stylish looks. What a good discovery! I hope you guys are tempted as I do now and let's visit Zenni Optical today for a brand new eyeglasses!

Bento #3

A simple bento for Kendra today. The chee cheong fan was bought by her gong gong and I just packed it for her with some cereal and a jelly. Surprisingly she can finished all the foods. This had give me a very big encouragement to do more bento for her.

Shockig News

This is a heart breaking news for those who wish to migrate to Australia........ and I'm one of it.

Rudd rolls up migrant welcome mat

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has flagged a cut in immigration because of the global financial crisis, faltering economic growth and a rise in unemployment.

Mr Rudd said the current immigration rate was an increase on the previous year.

He said that increase was to meet employer demands for more skilled workers, particularly in mining and resource intensive Western Australia and Queensland.

"As with all previous governments, and mine's the same, whenever we set immigration targets we will adjust them according to the economic circumstances of the day," he told the Fairfax Radio Network in Melbourne .

The 2008-09 Migration Program is set at 190,300 places, representing a 19.8 per cent increase on the 2007-08 program. The figure includes 56,500 places for family migrants sponsored by people already in Australia and 133,500 places for those with special skills.

But that's now been criticised as excessively large in a period of economic turmoil.

Mr Rudd said immigration was not one-size-fits-all across the country and the government would take advice on where skilled workers were needed.

Monash University researcher Andrew Markus has estimated that of the 21 million Australians, a quarter were born abroad - twice the proportion of the population in the United States and three times that of Britain.

Britain and New Zealand are still the largest source countries, but almost every country is represented.

Bento #2

Thia is the 2nd bento I did for Kendra for her snack break at school. It's a very light snack for her and hope she loves it as it looks not as attractive as the previous one. Mommy promise will find more idea on the coming bento.

Whole Grain bread + strawberry jam, oranges

Mommy thought of let her bring the Vitagen to school but scare others children will fight after seeing the Vitagen. So mommy decided not to let her bring the Vitagen to school but will let her have it after school.

My First Bento

I think preparing Bento is the trend now and being a Kiasu mom, I have prepared my first Bento for hubby and Kendra today. I got not much Bento accesorries with me and I should thank market place owner to send my items promptly so that I can start my Bento-ing.

I can't wait till 18th October for the grand opening of the 100 yen shop in Ipoh. I hope I can find some useful bento stuffs there.

This is the Bento for hubby.........
Bread + ham + cheese, grapes and sausages

This is what I prepared for Kendra.....
Bread + ham & cheese, grapes

Let's go to school with my Bento.........

p/s: When I drop her to school this morning, the first thing she told her teacher is :"I got Bento today..." hahaha, normally she will greet the teacher when she reached there.


Kendra like to apologize to me lately even for some small things... "Sorry mommy, sorry mommy" always the words from her mouth. I didn't mean that I don't like her to apologize when she did a mistake, I just wish that she will know her mistake and don't repeat it again. Not by saying a word of Sorry and forget about her mistake.

Yesterday when we are about to sleep, hubby was playing with Kendra. Suddenly, she beat her daddy because daddy sleep on her pillow. Then hubby pretended crying by the hope Kendra will 'sayang' him but Kendra still don't bother him. Hubby got no way to go but saying sorry to his princess. Guess what is Kendra answer????

Kendra: Sorry no cure!!!!!!!

Hahahaha......... this is my answer to her everytime she apologized to me. Hubby and I laughed non stop after hearing her answer.
