yo yo yo....have been really occupied for the past few days. If you came from my sis's post "All about him", yes, those were our daily endless tasks, which includes of entertaining our big boss, AJ. So instead of talking repeatingly about AJ today, I'm going to write about food we had on Xmas eve. It's sooo delicious that we'll definitely go there again.

Trust me. You couldn't resist them yourself. Even with your 200% full stomach. and you'll definitely get your hands dirty on first glance. It was already 10 ish when we brought my family to 101 for a light supper. We thought to have just light LIGHT SUPER LIGHT as I'm watching my diet and surprisingly, my dad ordered a lot back after just a few minutes visits at the stalls. I don't really know the real name though so I'm naming them myself. Ladies & gentlemen, boys & girls...

the siput bakar (aka grilled snails)

fork out the meat using a sharp end stick

mix with your saliva then chew before swallow. yum yum...

fed by our big boss, AJ

super duper fresh grilled fish

not forgetting also, AJ have his milk showing off his new shoes by his cute Gma

AJ spent the rest of the evening running non-stop with the kids footcan-ing at an wide open space. He was forced to be taken back into the car, sweating heavily. I have to admit, he's an energetic kid. Pretty sure it's from the milk. ==" Ciao...Marge

Hepi Krismas everyone

As you have known, it was Winter Solstice just a few days ago and we make the tang yuen ourselves. Hubby as usual, the chef on the special day. It's very easy task. trust me, this can be done within an hour. The main ingredients are glutinuous rice flour, peanuts or soy bean flour & water.

Both of us as the audience

pour the flour into bowl - not too much nor less

the chef shows off his big belly - one whole big full of happiness :P

pour a small amount of water. enough to make it as soft dough

mix well

closer view

then make small dough. size up to your taste

cooked under boiling water for a minute or two then mix with the peanut flour. yum yum...success!

On an unrelated note, you may have noticed that my blog has been spammed with ridiculous useless comments so I, like Alice, have decided to change how it works from now on. I'll be reviewing for any comments submitted before publish to public. Just for everyone's sake.

And oh oh oh....it's christmas eve alright & like everyone else, we would like to wish you everyone a CHRISTMAS EVE & HAPPY HOLIDAYS. Wish you all filled with endless joy & excellent health always. WITH MY FAMILY...HERE...IN KUCHING...YESH!!! hiak! hiak! hiak!

yes, my family is here in Kuching for a few days holiday and I am enjoying the family gathering now which we haven't been have it for years years back. It's very merry...wahaha..with my mom's home cook meals. always delicious as before.

The day I've longed for...

I'm smiling from ear to ear. A very special day indeed. teehee... It's a public holiday norm to all malaysian but I'm super duper happy because we make use of this day......shopping. well, that's not the main point. It's a family day indeed which we all have been looking forward too. A relaxing day with no rush here & there, no heat wave, the whole half day in The Spring. Both hubby and I were working ever since we arrived Kuching and tired due to exhausting endless tasks and I especially feeling guilty for not been spending much time with AJ lately, mom & son together.

So at The Spring...Gosh...Xmas is around the corner and The Spring is just like any other malls decorated for the Xmas festive. And AJ was over the moon already. haha...
ooo...feel the warmth already...
AJ loved it
he too smiling from ear to ear...I was lucky to snap this
AJ is not looking forward for the family photo. Got too excited with the santa
Two big xmas tree by the escalator

We spent hours in the mall just because of the cool air really. It's a day outside but the heat wave, we couldn't stand it basically. So we rather spend the day in the mall eventhough we're wondering aimlessly for hours. We managed to loan a pushchair for free as long as we took good care & return it in good order. AJ couldn't wait to sit in the pushchair the moment he saw it. I bet he missed it since he grew up with it. haha...

As we're wondering in the mall, we saw something that we really fancied.
& mine

What do you think of my purse? Chosed it myself & it's a gift from hubby. I've been looking for a specific purse and when I saw this, it's exactly to my taste plus the discount, I took it immediately without a second thought. hehe....Thanks, dear. Love it and will pour my endless love to CR. Not forgetting AJ, we got him a new chinese new year clothes. I know it's still early but since I saw one that's suitable and it's on discount so why not. It's not for public eye until that day comes. hehe...

We're still looking for our own chinese new year clothes. Boy, it has been ages since our last spending on CNY clothes. Not sure what I'm looking for actually but I'm aiming to get some that will also be suitable for normal / work wearing. Will keep on hunting for the right one indeed! The sale is there and may there be continuous sale till Chinese New Year.

We headed towards another mall but didn't stayed there too long because it's too hot in there. All of us were sweating! For goodness sake, we went back home afterwards.

So all in all, it was a good day afterall. Boy, I do hope that we could spend everyday like this as a family. Well, not on spending money too much though.

he's all set

Ít's UCSI open day today so I accompanied Jerome to UCSI university this morning. It's raining, alright but we're not put back by the bad weather. hehe..And we're the first to arrive!! Because we were the first visitors, we're on everyone's eye. They open at 9 and we arrived at 9:02 am. haha...I thought it's best to arrive early to avoid crowds as I don't like to squeeze myself in the crowd just to get a few minutes sessions with the lecturers. Plus being the first always allows us to ask as many questions as we can even they're ridiculous.

Jerome got himself a place for a place for A-level course for January intake. We met a few lecturers and the programme leader who coordinates the A-level programme. Asked general questions to know more in detail about the A-level. And it's all done within half an hour.

Then we're given free refreshment in their newly-open cafeteria. Although we're full after heavy breakfast just half an hour ago but since it's free I don't mind. sit there and chit chat with one of the administrators there. haha...I asked a lot like I'm the person studying not Jerome >.<

Then a free car wash...whoosh!!! First car of the day! Spot the purple umbrella at the right corner? It's my new umbrella. Cute leh...

The car wasn't 100% clean though. The car washer boy left out one side dirty. So it's half cleaned. T.T Then then...I saw a few small scratches. T.T So, never take things for granted. Freebies aren't always that good though.

Anyway...Jeromé is all set. I bet he can't wait to go back to study life. He's all excited....haha....

The "talak tiga"

As mentioned from the previous post, AJ had a talak tiga not too long ago. Here’s the full story.

It happened on one night. AJ has been using the same brand since he was several months old and it’s like his loyal wife. She follows him everywhere. She comforts him when he’s upset. She makes him go to sleep. She eases his pain when he’s not feeling well. He would be really upset if he saw me taking away his wife so I only do that without him noticing…you know to give her a hot bath. He won’t leave her behind if he goes out. Basically she’s everything to him.

Everyone…jeng jeng jeng…She is none other than silicone teats dummy by Avent. He’ll noticed the differences when I changed to a new dummy especially of different colour eventhough they’re from the same brand. He would raised his eyebrows and give it a few seconds thoughts before actually accepting his ‘new wife’.

I have actually thinking of get rid of the wife sometime soon. Yes, obviously I’m jealous because she’s absolutely replacing my position in his heart and I felt challenged!!!….grrr…..

OK, anyway researchers claimed that dummy plays a part in speaking development. Having dummy in the mouth all the time stops him from speaking properly and this could cause late speaking at later stage. Some leading to slur speaking also. This is quiet scary you know. It’s one of the many concerns for each mom. So I decided I need to get the divorce settlement finalized soon before she’s taking over him although I know the dummy is a comfort to him.

I asked my friends previously the best way to cut off the dummy. One solution is to cut the teats to make him sucking nothing. Or dip the teats with durian paste so that he’ll find it taste funny. Bla blab la…I’m not sure how effective they are but I kinda reluctant to cut the teat if in case the plan doesn’t work or I sound so horrible by dipping the teat into the durian paste as I know it’s like forcing myself eating something I don’t like. So I haven’t really thought of the best solution.

Furthermore, there was no exact date as of when to finalise the divorce since he was obviously still in love with her. T.T He’s soooo into her every second. He never fed up with her! There were several occasions where they both got into fight and he threw her away (sounds horrible, right?) but that only lasts for a few minutes. They’re inseparable, I tell you!!!

Then on a Thursday last month, I decided that it’s time to replace his worn wife with a new young beautiful wife from Jusco. I wasn’t sure at first if he’ll take it since he’s No.1 fan of Avent products but it’s still made from silicone just comes with a slightly different shape. That night, I simply throw the old grumpy wife, who threatened my position in AJ’s circle, into the bin without a second thought. Talak 2. Who ask her to offend a lovely beautiful young mother-in-law?

Few minutes later when AJ asked for his wife whereabouts, I introduced the new young wife. The small and short yet lavish wedding ceremony went well. AJ met her for the first time and who knows 10 miliseconds later, he rejected the new Mrs Ling. To my shock, he pushed her away every time I introduced her to him. He went crying immediately. “Give me back my wife. Where’s she? You killed her? Get her back. I want her back! Alive! Now! At this moment!”

No, I hate the old grumpy wife so I’m certainly not going to persuade her to come back. Not a chance! I insisted the new one but he kept pushing her away. Each time! Then blink! comes a big 75 watt bulb on top of my head saying this could actually work. A totally good timing for the full divorce, talak tiga.

The theory seems so solid. It’s a solution alright but comes another problem. As I’ve said before, he sleeps with his wife. So that night, AJ found it difficult to go to bed without her. He wailed for her until he fell asleep. Poor little fella. I had to carry him till he fall asleeps. Then he would wake up in the middle of the night looking for his wife. The next day, I said to myself, if this is getting worse, I’ll get him the Avent back. What to do? It’s the King AJ we’re talking about. But he has to wait until Saturday since the product can only be bought in Poppies in the Spring or Mummycares in Crown Square. So I have about 3 nights for the experiment.

First night was horrible. The second day was ok but night was still a bit struggling. The staff at nursery also complained about rejecting his new wife. He found it hard to go to sleep without his wife. But I insist to use this golden chance to get rid of his wife once and for all. Just give me a few days. I know it will works (actually 50-50 only). He looked tired and so was hubby and I, all because of sleep deprivation. It will always be the new wife each time he asked for it. The tiredness asked me to give up, half of me said I have get him the Avent. But the other half of me said to wait for a few more days. Reason being he started to look more chatty without his wife.

On 4th night, amazingly, he slept through the night. I woke up fresh. That was the first night I sleep through the night after suffering 22 months of broken sleeps. Surprisingly, AJ got used without having his wife around. He seems to forget about it. Whola….

IT WORKS! IT WORKS! *dancing around under the joyful rain*

AJ is now off the soothers. 100%! Thank God. Very chatty now indeed. In his own language. A o e a a a a a da di be bu blab la…very energetic voices.

You should use this method if you’re planning to have your children off the dummy aka the wicked wife. Hehe…

For the record, I still keep the new wife in case he wants it again and will pushed it away when he saw this latest wife. This wife is going to be with him for the next few years ago. Yeah baby, I like her. A lot! Hahah…

But leh comes a new problem. He keeps moving around a lot before he goes to sleep which annoys us because he would bump me or hubby’s head blindly. Then we can’t really sleep peacefully until he fall asleep. Hubby has already suggesting getting him back to dummy. I must think a new solution to make him snooze faster. Come on. Think! Think! Think!

The joy of RM2

Woot!!! Don't think you'll see this a lot in the market nowadays, probably extinct! If you do, keep it. Don't give it away as it's sooo limited.

Ahhhhhh..the joy of RM2. two ringgit.

Hey, it's not for sale and it's mine for the next few years at least.
