My "sexy" Fearles

I don't know what got into Fearles lately, he love to pull his pyjamas up high to his chest when he sleep at night, i pull it down, he pull it up. Last two night, it's quite late at night, it about 10.00pm they still reluctant to sleep, i tuck them to their bed and force them to sleep.

Cruz sleep within a minute as i know he is already sleepy, but he just want to play. As Fearles he still refuse to sleep, even i already fall sleep before him. When i wake up about half an hour, i saw Fearles's eye still wide open, i got so angry, i told him, i go shower! I let him sleep himself.

After 20 mins i come out from the shower room, i saw this

stress and tired weekend!

Weekend suppose to be a happy and relax weekend, but why stress? My "sotong" maid give me stress!

Saturday afternoon i went out to hunt some new stock for my online store with my biz partner. We have to make it quick as i got dinner to attend at night, so when u want to be fast, i just turn into a wrong turning, and it make me to go for a big round only reach my destination. Then parking also another headache, we round for nearly 1/2 hour only found one parking spot. Quickly go and hunt our stuff. We go at the wrong timing as chinese new year just end, and most of the shop still don't have any new stock yet. What a bummer! Two of us can't do it another week, as we got things to do, no choice still get something simple this round. Half way hunting (already so stress), received call from my 2nd SIL, saying Fearles locked himself in the room (their future room and currently is their playroom)!!!!! I got a shock! I immediate ask where is my maid, she said the maid are outside the room, try to open the door but can't. I still don't have the room key with me, even i leave my bunch of keys at home with my blur maid. Haih!! I just came out for two hours already this things happen. Cruz on the other hand is sleeping in my room, Fearles wake up early so he want to play in the room, he might just accidently lock the door. Stress stress stress!! From there phone ring non stop, MIL called and nag me, ask me where is the key, i said i don't know since house got so many lock and so many keys i have yet to label all my keys, but i don't remember i got the room key for the kids room. There SIL ask me, come home now! Aaarrggg, stress! End up, we still very fast finish getting our stock, while i still keep calling home and check how is it. BIL reach home, he break the door knob, that is the only choice! *sigh*

Back home, my two boys still happily playing, Fearles don't have any frighten look, still naughty, jumping, running. My maid is sitting outside folding the clothes, and i give her a "tiger" stare, without saying a word, as i too pissed, don't know what to said. Quickly finish our "work", when Vivian ( my biz partner) doing the posting, on the other hand i feed my boys their dinner, then went for a quick shower, rush for a dinner gathering with my good old friends from the hotel, which we know each other for more than 10 years!!

We had dinner at one of the small hotel in PJ, nothing to shout about the buffet, really a SIMPLE one, not much food, really NOTHING MUCH! hahahahahahahaha..Our main purpose is to catch up with each other, it's really good to have this kind of gathering. Hub was busy with the cycling race the next day, he is not tag along, just me & the kids and the maid. We have a good time yakking yakking, till 10.30pm, of course my boys also have a good time by JUMPING AROUND ON THE SOFA!!!! On the way home, less than 5 mins they are in their dreamland. What a tired day.


see how my two rascals happily jumping on the coffee house sofa



clock wise - Julia, Wai Foon, Margaret, Martin & his japenese gf!


Group photo


Sunday around noon time, went to Bukit Kiara to support the cycling race that organise by my hub, this is his first time organise, of course must give face lo.;) Younger BIL was participating the race. We went there around 1pm, which is so so burning hot! We find a place underneath the trees, at least won't directly get the sunlight. Quite many people around, can see most of the cars are having a bike or two or threes bikes on the car top, didn't take any pictures, as hub is having the camera. When we reach there, they are having break time, so there is no race, we waited for about 1 hour plus only the race started. My sons got excited when they see the "kor kor" all "fly" down from the hill and make a big landing sound, they clap their hands and sometime also flw the "kor kor" shout out loud! They really enjoy it. They got chance to play with the sands on the floor and the dry leaves, and dry small branch that fall down from the tress. They are sweating and so do me! We watched from 1pm till 4pm, one side of my hand and neck got "burn" by the hot sun!

Not to forget to jot this down, Cruz as usual, like to "kau lui", he saw one "jie jie" very pretty, who is there to support her boyfriend in the race, if i'm not wrong she is Singaporean (those who participate the race are from Singapore, Kuantan, Penang and local). Her boyfriend got the third place in one of the catogary so from there i know he is from Singapore. hahahahahahahaha Cruz keep looking at that "jie jie" and call her "jie jie, see bicycle" when he clap his hand he also must call the "jie jie" to see him *roll eyes* my boys ar. That "jie jie" stand nearby us, she is taking pictures, and my boys keep talk to her and disturb her, i think she like my boys too (hahahahahah so thick skin mummy!!!) she answer my boys.




After the race, we suppose to attend my hub buddy's son birthday party, i thought want to bring my boys home to take shower then we go to the party, as quite near to my house. Once in the car, both boys just "knock out" even in the car is so hot! Reach home, Fearles still in his deep sleep, so i let him sleep, thought wait till he wake up then we can go for the party, who knows me also fall sleep together with him. Cruz is wide awake after we reach home, he is enjoy eating biscuit and watching his cartoon, and keep ask me to wake up! *faint* By the time Fearles wake up is already 6pm, we can't make it to the party, sent sms to birthday boy's father tell him we can't make it, will pass him the present next time. They give us a surprise visit after the birthday party around 7pm (party end at 6.30pm)Pass us the food and also the party packs, so thoughtful of him and i pass him the birthday present. At the same time, my hub another good friend, Vincent, he also went for the party, so he came by to our house too. After a short visit at our new house, we went out for dinner, quite sometime three of them didn't meet up. Last time they use to make it a point to meet up every year chinese new year for gathering. Now every one got kids and busy with work, hardly meet up, this is the good time to catch up.

So this is my tired weekend.

My son's "PETS"

After reading this mummy blog, inspire me to write this post too. My sons got "pets" , and not the ordinary pet, it is a bit weird. Since young they already know this, whenever i'm in the kitchen i will feed their "pets", they are excited to see them around.

U must be wonder, why at my place got this kind of "pet", actually it belongs to our neighbour, notice beside my house there is empty house, beside the empty house there is one wooden house belongs to one of the indian, they stay there and they got a lots this "pets" and the pets like to loitering around the place. Ever since we renovate the house behind us, all the "pets" run away from their home and come to our house. My sons got to see them everyday, sometime the "pets" will wandering at our house compound, my sons will definetly give them a good chase till they fly every where and the shit from the "pet" also come out (got fright from my boys) and my boys will have a great time having fun and a loud laugh! *faint*

Every time my boys saw their "pets", they are so happy, they will call them. When i drive my car out, sometime their "pet" will "sit" on the floor or at the back lane, my car passed by, my two rascal just so excited and scream so loud. Morning sometime my boys refuse to wake up from bed, i will tell them, come mummy bring u to see your "pets", they will immidiate jump out from their bed. Now from the new bedroom, they can see their "pets" from the window. Before chinese new year, "pets" wife got give birth to few baby "pets", heard from my MIL it is about 4 or 5, so very soon, we can see the "pet" bringing their junior and running over our compound and with my two rascal chasing after them. *ALAMAK*!

Toilet training

I blog this before on their diaperless training two months ago. I stop for few weeks didn't give them training, as i'm busy and lazy.Till lately the school teacher told me, she start toilet train them and now they can tell the teacher they want to "shi shi" and "ngm ngm". Day time at the nursery, teacher didn't wear them diapers anymore, it still got some accident, but compare to when they first start, six pants in a morning down to one or two.

During weekend at home, also diaperless except when going out or they having their nap. Now when i bring them out "kai kai", once they feel like doing their small business they will tell me " mummy, shi shi toilet" i told them you just shi shi on ur pampers, but they refuse. *faint* I wonder will they confuse? Sometime i ask them must tell me when they want to shi shi and when they wear pampers i said never mind you just shi shi on your pampers, but they refuse they insists want to go to toilet and shi shi. This really save a lot on the diapers cost. Now, there is another big challenge is to wean them off the "jut jut"! I think this is real hard for me! :(

Some mummies give me suggestion give them shi shi at the toilet will be easier than sitting on a potty, i find it's true,they find it's interesting to pee in the toilet like an adult.

Good job boys!

little keepo chi

My two boys had turn into little keepo chi lately, they speak and sing a lot! Especially Cruz!! He can talk non stop, some of it i also don't understand what he is saying, most family member don't understand him, except me. hahahahahahahahaha

Last two days, out of sudden Cruz said "Oh my god!" i got a shock, where did he learn this from, maybe from me? hahahahaha as i like to said "Oh my god" too and didn't expect him to pick this words up. I must careful what i'm saying now, as he mimic me a lot. After he said " Oh my god!" he repeat a few times when i ask him what did u said just now, then come again, another sentence, "ma ma sit cow cow" (ma ma as my mother, their grandma) I just wondering what is in his mind and make him said that, so funny.

When i speak on the phone, he will follow what i'm saying words by words, sometime i find it irritating, till his daddy ask him to shut up ( i know it's not good to ask them to shut up when this is the time they want to learn, when they don't speak we worried, once they too noisy we feel irritating) :(

I don't know what wrong with Cruz, now it seems he mix up a lot of words, he can pronouce "th" "k" "t" and "s" behind the words. Now he just simply add it to the words that he know, example:-

Mickey mouth - Mickey mouse

puk - put

some of the words i can't remember, really lost count on the new words they learn. Fearles now calling me "meh" "meh" "meh" and not "mi" anymore i also don't know why, from "mummy" to "mameh" *sigh* .

Two more days they will turn to their 33 months, how time flies, another three more months they will celebrate their 3 years old birthday.

My colleagues give us (chinese staff) a mini fiesta breakfast in the office. Assam Laksa, roti jala, curry chicken, jelly and jelly with fruit punch. As we had not much staff in the office, we can't finish it for breakfast, so we eat for lunch again. Thanks so much for their effort to cook for us.

New house - sneak preview


my walk in wardrobe, right side view


my walk in wardrobe, left side view



view from my room, temp curtain, as we haven't done our curtain.


this is from the new house to the old house


this is the view from the old house, and this is the new house

Sneak preview of my new house, this is actually is the back, as we convert the back entrance to a big parking, and front of the new house we hardly use. So it will be like the other way round, from this door go inside will be living room instead of dining room, so our dining room will be facing on the other front entrance.

Our Chinese New Year



Gong Xi Fa Cai and happy birthday to everyone!!! Today is the seven days of chinese new year, chinese said today is everyone birthday. :0)

As i mention in my previous post, we spent our chinese new year at Kuantan this year. We leave the house on the eve afternoon, that is not much traffic on the road, can said is smooth sailing. Reached there is about 6.30pm, after check in and settle down all the seven kids, they can't wait and want to dip into the pool. Change them, bring the to the pool to have a quick swim, it's about 7.30pm, and the water is quite cold and with strong wind, the guard at the pool told us, the pool will closed at 8pm. After "drag" everyone out from the pool, shower them and change them, we head for our late dinner at one chinese restaurant, food so so only, so no picture taken. Tell u, this trip is just like kindy teachers bring kids for outing, so havoc!! Back to hotel, put them to sleep, and only i took my shower, which is near to 12am. Not much chinese new year feel, not even a single fire crackers sound or fire works, except for the incoming chinese new year greeting sms's.

1st day chinese new year - lucky there is lion dance in the hotel lobby, wake all the kids up, get them shower and change them, give them "ang pows" and bring all of them to lobby to see lion dance (hubby and his brother, 7 early 8 early already went for cycling). Lucky they are back just 5 mins before the "lion". Kids are having so so much fun watching the lion dance, younger BIL's son been pull out to the centre by the lion, everyone had a good laugh, and Cruz, scared of the lion! He cried when the lion approach him so so near, and Fearles being smart he sit at one corner. While i'm enjoy watching the lion dance, someone pat on my shoulder! I got a shock, turn around i saw this mummy, which is going to have twins too! I can't recognise her, she lost some weight or she change her hair style, which make me a bit blur when i first saw her ( i only met chin nee once), she is looking good, and i can see a small bump on her tummy. We chat a while and we bid good bye after finish the lion dance.

Kids spent most of the times at the pool and the beach, and the sun is so so hot, till everyone had sun burn! Morning and late afternoon also swim at the pool, evening bring them have a walk along Teluk Cempedak, many people there, some of them are picnic, playing kites, sands, and with some stall selling balloons, souvenier, some arts, and drawing. Since we are having late lunch so everyone still full for dinner. Me and SIL just went out to pack some dinner back to hotel for the maid and kids, and me and her after feed the kids, put them to sleep, two of us, sneak out to have a break, having late dinner/supper at Kemaman Kopitiam (must have when u're in Kuantan). Ya, two of us, not familiar with the road we drive around when we pack the food for the maid, and we look see look see any place for good dinner. Finally we saw this Kemaman Kopitiam we decide to have supper there, tell u it is so pack with people, we have to wait for the table. Me just had nasi lemak and no coffee for me as i'm having sore throat on that night!! Yes, i fall sick on the 1st chinese new year till today!! After supper, me and SIL went for fun fair! Yes, u read it right, we went for fun fair!!! hahahahahah Been so so long i never been to fun fair, it happen on the 1st day chinese new year, when we drive out to hunt for food, we saw this fun fair, so we decide to go there without the kids. We two mummy having fun time playing some games and "win" some small soft toys.Oh, where is the two daddies, one are sleeping and my hub is having a drinking session with his friends. Back to hotel is about 12.30am, we do have a great time lo.

2nd day of chinese new year we are back to KL, before we check out from the hotel, i met up with my old old friend, which we havent see each other for nearly 9 to 10 years! Have a quick chat, and glad to see her again. Before heading back to KL, we had lunch at Kemaman Kopitiam again. Reach KL, it's nearly 5pm, i'm so so tired and so sick. 2nd SIL's sister come and pick up the three kids to her place, phew, we can have a break. During the few days new years, didn't go anywhere, i just sleep and root at home and glue my eyes on the tv on all the chinese new year programe. On the 5th day chinese new year, i went to my ex manager house for visiting, that is the only one.

Ok, hope i don't bored u all, i think u all must have a great and happening chinese new year.

Gong Xi Fa Cai!!



So much work, and so little time to do. I'm "un-official" move to my new house on 1st Feb. Ya, this is very last minute, and it's so so near to chinese new year. Lucky my in law side they all no celebrate chinese new year, every year everyone will go for holiday, so at least not that bad.

New house actually just behind my current house, we link up the house by using one back entrance. Not big house, old area with old house, just that both is corner house so we link up. Friday is holiday, we start moving in the evening, move bit by bit, still got a lot things still at the old house, those we use it daily, we move first. That's said why i'm so tired, two boys are overjoyed to their new house and new room, but currently they still sleep with us, till they grow old a bit then we will shift them to their own room. These few days they are extremely active, naughty, and with lots of energy, that make me have less time to do the moving and cleaning. Bigger room and bigger space for them to run. Just like this mummy, now i have to climb the stairs, day and night climb up and down. My previous house i'm staying downstair, so is much more convenience for me, no stairs to climb. Over the weekend, i'm busy with walking to the old house and move the things to the new house. New house still doesnt have any stove yet, so i have to cook lunch for my boys at the old house, let them play, and nap time bring them back to the new house. Beside than kitchen still empty, our curtain also not ready yet. Due to close to chinese new year, no one want to come and measure our house and do the curtain. *sigh*

Ever since we moved to the new house, i have difficult to put them to sleep. Two of them like to play and talk to each other, even i flash my cane in front of them, they still can giggle, that of course follow by my screaming and scolding, but it still doesnt work. *sigh* When come to morning, they seems to wake up late these few days, i have to drag them up from the bed and bring them to nursery,of course they make a big fuss and cry again la. My boys just love my little walk in wardrobe so much, push the door walk inside from the left and push another door and come out from the right, or the other way round, it's like their mini playground.

This year i will not go back hometown for chinese new year, will go back after. Since no one at home, hub and his younger brother plan to go Kuantan for cycling (crazy huh?), so me and two boys and BIL's family will tag along, and will spent our chinese new year there. This trip i think will be a headache trip for me, because 2nd BIL's kids no one take care as they are away to Japan for holiday, so me & younger BIL's wife will be taking care the kids for them. We decide to bring the three maids together to go to Kuantan, at least they can help out with the kids. Otherwise, me and SIL sure definetly won't enjoy our holiday cum chinese new year.

Ok, last but not least, here would like to wish everyone and those who read my blog, a very Happy Chinese New Year & Gong Xi Fa Cai! Hope everyone Fatt Fatt Fatt Fatt Fatt!


My "Sotong"!

Maid story again, my Cambodia maid really make me scream and drive me up the wall all the time! Even though she is with me for about 5 months and nearly to half year, she is still blur, always day dream, do thing still in a super slow pace. I always tell her do things fast, but she is still took her own sweet time and do the house work!!

One thing that made me pissed is she can’t wake up in the morning. I ask her to wake up at 6am every morning, but she wake up at 6.45am and sometime when I wake up at 7.15am she still sleeping, I have to wake her up. She don’t feel “guilty” or she is wrong, she will wake up slowly make up her bed and slowly go and wash my boys laundry. Sei mou?? Me is rushing to work and ask her to get ready the two boys, so how don’t I scream? I forgot to said, even with the alarm clock rang, she also can’t wake up! The most great part is what, when u ask her what time u wake up she will tell u 5.30am or 6am!!! Till today still the same, I have to make myself to wake up at 5.30am to just make sure she is waking up at 5.30am. *sigh*

Last two weeks, when my mum was in town, I took one day off to company my mum shopping. After sending my boys to nursery I had breakfast with my mum and I realise I forgot to bring something, so I turn back home. I told my mum I should “spot check” on what is my maid doing when no one at home. I park my car a bit far and I walk back, when I open the door I didn’t see my maid, I thought she is sleeping but she is not, I heard kitchen got sound, so I went to kitchen and see what she is doing. She is concentrating cutting Isetan pre sale leaflet, which night before I clear my mail and throw it. I see some of my maxis bill also on the table and also credit card statement! I got shock, I stand there and look at her she didn’t realise me and the stove are boiling the soup and there is plates and cups to be wash but it all still lying in the basin. After I call up her, she look shock and smile at me, I ask her what is she doing, she telling me she is cutting the paper. Walau! My fire start, I told her, I paid her to work not to cut paper and I wonder why she keep all the papers (those telephone bill and bank statement and some waste paper). I lecture her and I told her I want to check her bag. She unlock her bag yes, she always lock her bag, and I don’t bother till that day I wonder how many things she had keep behind me.

After open up the bag, first nothing wrong, all is clothes, I check all the clothes and pants too. To my shock, I found there is 3 DVDs in her bag which belongs to my husband, one English, one Chinese and one Japan animation cartoon!!!! I ask her why there is DVDs in her bag, she said we throw!!!! I told her no, we didn’t throw any DVDs and the DVDs are still in good condition. I found another 8 cans of sardines in the bag, which I bought for her just in case some of the day we don’t cook so she can eat, but she don’t she keep it all! Maybe she wanted to bring it back to her hometown, hey! That still got a long time to go (she has to be here for two years contract) and I found some coins in her pants pocket too, she pick the coins when she wash our clothes. No, not finish yet, I found my sons and my SIL’s sons small toys in her bag too. Small aeroplanes and small cars! She claims we throw it, I again told her I didn’t throw, that aeroplanes my boys love it a lot, which I won’t throw. I really really mad at her! I even took a picture of the things she took, I told her I will go and report police, but she just act calm, like no big deal with her, make me more fuming!!!! It really spoilt my day and mood.

From that day onwards, I told myself I will spot check her bag once a while, to give her surprise.

Still got many more stories about my maid, to be continue.

*Sotong = blur*
