Mummy's Work

JE was asking what I do at work.  Hmm how to explain in a way a 6 year-old can understand?  I am in charge of certain functions while at the same time handling the hands-on work.

Me:  I work, and I also make sure other people work
(Patting myself on the back for this reply)

JE:  What happens when other people don't work?

Me:  I will say, Hey you! Go and work!
(Heh patting myself even more.  I do think this is a very good explanation of what I do!)

Aiyo mummy syiok sendiri only
(I.e., mummy thinks she's so clever only)

Ah Mah's birthday 2016

My mother's birthday is tomorrow... but we already celebrated.  :)  At Ah Wet Thai in Kayu Ara.  Food was overall ok but there were some misses - the fried fish in 'something sauce' wasn't so good and they'd run out of crabs that time.  I did enjoy the pork neck, pandan chicken and grilled platter though.

Food glorious food

Sis baked the cake, it tasted good this time (It doesn't always, kekeke)

Blow out the candles!

Happy birthday to my dear mother!  Like she said, we shall do this for at least the next 10 years!

Nobody realised it at the time, but SOMEBODY wasn't happy.  Apparently she didn't get to help blow out the candles.  My mother tried to feed her cake/fruit/chocolate and only then realised something was wrong when SE rejected everything.



This little one, she's only 4 but she can stay angry a long time.  Recently she blamed cousin Jayden for tripping her and didn't want to play with him for the next THREE days.  Sigh... little chilli padi for sure.  Cousin Erin came by but she was still angry.

Someone is awfully quiet.  Hmmm.  Standing all by herself in the corner for quite some time.


Sneak up on her to see why...

*Very quiet*

Aha!  Busy poking at the iPad that is being charged!

10th Anniversary makan

Last year I completely forgot about our wedding anniversary until after the event haha.  I'd thought then that never mind, just nice that the following year would be our 10th.  And resolved not to forget the 10th.  :)

Wanted something a bit memorable as a celebration.  The seafood trend I'd been seeing on FB was interesting, but I'd always thought the outlets were in Subang or thereabouts.  I had no idea they were a lot closer to home!  So it was Kai's Plato for us...


Now, what are these two doing here??  For a wedding anniversary lunch that has nothing to do with them??

Play play play

Haha decided to bring the whole gang.  Well why not... and like I told hubby, sometimes he's just not in the mood to talk so better not dine with him alone haha.

Me and hubby were there too!

The food was overall good.  I thought the steamed seafood was slightly bland.  The main culprit was the squid... and it has to be one thing there was a LOT of!  (Some more hubby doesn't like squid so it was all for me sigh)  But the other items were all good.  Since it was only a platter for two, there were only 2 tiers:  Top one with seafood and the bottom one with soup, plus the seafood essence which dripped from the top.  There was a side of fried squid in batter too, which was nice.  We ordered seafood cheese rice and junior pasta for the kids and the maid.  The kids are asking to go there again.  They got to draw on seashells.  And tiny jellies were provided at the end of the meal.  Everything a kid could want.  :)

I drew a cake, a flower and an apple!

We have plans to go for more such seafood... maybe the sauce-y ones next time.  Anniversary or not hehe.

10 years

Taking a break from the kids, who are at the centre of my life at the moment.  Coz today is my 10th wedding anniversary!  Wow 10 years is a whole DECADE, has it passed by so fast?  It really, really doesn't seem that long ago.

While he annoys me no end a lot of the time, other times he does things which would impress even a pampered wife.  Also I don't forget that he ended a long period of single-hood for me (which was growing ever more tinged with desperation hehe).

Happy anniversary, hubby!

Cute baby

SE likes to call herself 'Cute baby'.  When she went to JE's birthday at school this year, a teacher asked her her name.  She said, very softly, 'Su Ern'.  When the teacher asked, Oh what was that again? She said, much louder, 'CUTE BABY'.  The teachers all laughed at that!

She likes to pretend to be a baby, going 'ngeh ngehhh' instead of talking.  At which we normally tell her, you are not a baby, you are FOUR years old!

Oh well, I suppose four isn't all that old.  After all, just a couple of years back, she was still a REAL baby.

Just call me Cute Baby

Black blanket

I sometimes find this in my room.  The black thing is my blanket.  So I come out of the attached bathroom, look around for the girls and see only this:

Just your black blanket


The other girl is actually underneath the blanket as well... still concealed at the other end in this photo.  I don't know how they can go under when it's so hot!  But they love jumping out and surprising me.  If it's only one girl under the blanket, the disguise is actually quite good as they're still small and the blanket just looks like... a lump of pure blanket haha.
