3hrs Without Maid

Every Saturday, I will drive Sebastian to his Taekwando class but last Saturday a little bit unusual. Hubby had appointment wanted me to drop him at his office, so do not want to leave Sidney alone with the maid, I brought Sidney along and leave the maid at home doing her housework.

Firstly, I dropped Sebastian at his Taekwando class, and then dropped hubby at is workplace. After that I go “tar pau” and carry Sidney along…. phew really hectic (to be honest, I hardly carry both of them and it’s less than 10mins). Then, I put Sidney on the car seat (she hardly seated on car seat, normally she seated on the maid’s lap), she struggled do not want to sit on car seat and yelling. I did not bother her and headed to Sebastian kindy to pick him up, while on the way, Sidney still crying and screaming, like I’m kidnapping her. Finally, reached Sebastian kindy and she stopped crying now she want to sit together with Sebastian at back seat. So, both of them at back seat and put them on safety belt. Sidney no more struggling and sit happily with Sebastian at the back seat, then I proceed to Tesco to buy some stuff. In Tesco, I put both of them in the trolley and started to shop for groceries, everything went very smoothly until we get into the car. Sidney do not want to put on safety belt, she wanted to sit freely, without wasting time, I carry her and put her on car seat. Again, she struggled and start screaming and crying all the way back home.

This is the very first time I brought both of them out without hubby ‘n maid and I told myself, this is the last time I’ll do this. I really salute those mummies that can handle their kids without maid

Tag: Fear Factor

I was tagged by VickyLow on what's my phobia is.

I'm only afraid of one thing... that is creeping invertebrate animals with long slender bodies, no limbs and move with a crawling motion...... it's a "WORM"... yuks!! I hate WORMS.... I scare of WORMS... even though I'm much.. much.. much... bigger size than them.

That why I dun like to wash veggies, I will leave it to my maid to do it... make sure she clean it properly. I dun cut fruits scare there is worm inside. I won't walk bare footed on grass ground afraid there is cacing tanah. One word only can describe.... I won't go to any places where there is high percentage of growing worms.

Mommies, what your fear factor......

Fatt!! Fatt!! Fatt!!.... wow, very auspicious number!! Thanks, Elaine.

What will I do on this important date?? It's actually our 7th Anniversary.... me 'n hubby got registered on 08.08.01.

Story time....
Once upon a time on a beautiful wednesday morning, me 'n hubby happily drive to Tian Hau Temple while both our families and friends are waiting for us. Still got plenty of time as we reached there very early, so while chit chating with my friends, suddenly hubby walked towards me with his blank look and asked me whether I did hold the documents where we supposed to bring for registration. I told him it's not with me and I tot you are holding to it. I started to panic at the same time angry and asked him, r u really want to marry me? If yes, why u left the important documents at home. He quickly drove back home to get the documents. Finally, we signed the paper and live happily ever after.

Ok, back to 08.08.08..... what's our plan??? Hhmmm... will get hubby for another honeymoon and leaving the kids behind. But, we have not plan which destination to go..... hopefully is out of Malaysia. If really hubby can't make it, then will go Pangkor Laut Resort instead.

These days, I find parents only speak English or Mandarin to their children; only few speak their dialect ie. Hokkien, Hakka… etc. I’m one of them too, only speaking English and Mandarin to Sebastian and Sidney.

I remember when I had Sebastian, we plan that I will speak English, hubby speak Mandarin, PIL will teach them Hakka and my mum will speak to them in Hokkien but ended up all speak in Mandarin.

During our time, my mum spoke hokkien to us and I pick up other languages only when we go to school. But children now from young they were taught only English and Mandarin and some Malay (from kakak) / Cantonese, what about others dialect like Hokkien, Hakka, Teo Chew and many more.

What will happen to others dialect few years down the road; will it faded just like that. I do not know, this is entirely my own interpretation of my feelings.. : )

Meaning of My Kids Name

Saw this tag few months back before I set-up my blog. So, was thinking to do this...

Sebastian, Xin Geng (鑫更)
There is a generation name book to follow for my hubby side, my kids are the fourth generations, therefore all boyz must be named (更) as a last name and for girls, they do not need to follow (so typical china man thinking, rite!!). So, it's really hard for us to name my boy, we gotto choose the middle name to match the last name. After the hu.. ha... here and there, we ended up let the sifu choose the name for my boy, of all the name given by the sifu, hubby prefered this.

Sebastian ~ I'm the one who choose the English name for my boy, I like this name very much. This name origin from Greek and it's mean "Majestic"

鑫 ~ meaning: much gold, prosperity (as if my family are so money minded... kekekekek)
更 ~ meaning: more, further (has to follow the generation name book, so got no choice)

If you pronounce my boy's name in mandarin then is perfect, but please don't pronounce it in cantonese... why... you gotto find our yourself lor.... 鑫 as in cantonese is 'yam' and 更 is 'kang'.... so.........

Sidney, Xin Ning (欣寧)
On my second pregnancy, I was so relieve when I found out it was a girl, so I don't have to follow the generation name book... *phew*. We can choose whatever name we like and named her. My girl name was choosen by hubby, so I just let hubby look for chinese name and me went to search for English name. I wanted the letter start from 'S' too... .

Sidney ~ coz it's almost same pronunciation with Chinese name. It's origin from French

欣 ~ meaning: happy
寧 ~ meaning: peaceful

We want Sidney to be happy person and have a peaceful mind on whatever decision she made.

Don't dare to try for third baby, if it's girl than it's rite....... but if it's boy.... then I have to name him "kangkang" already.... what to do have to go with the flow ma.....

Change of Kindergarten

I was thinking to change Sebastian's kindergarten next year and I had discussion with hubby on this matter. Hubby asked me why would I want to change and this will effect Sebastian as he is now feel comfortable with this kindy. I did not answer hubby as I do not know how to answered him. I send Sebastian to kindy at the age of 3 when Sidney was born, so my MIL can have concerntration on Sidney and I also get a maid to help her out.

Ok, come back to this, why would I want to change Sebastian's kindy not to say that the kindy he attended now is not good but not that great too, but I want him to attend Montessori school and till now I still can't find any authentic Montessori school within my housing area (Cheras) or MIL area (Ampang). How I wish if Leah's Montessori is in Klang Valley, then I won't be so sakit kepala.

I'm too kiasu rite!! Being mummy is real tough job (for me la.... i know many mommies out there are a successful mommies)

Montessori Workshop

This coming saturday, me and my two colleagues will be attending the workshop in Subang Square, really looking forward for this workshop before I actually enroll for the course as I'm not too sure whether am I really into child's education.

The workshop I'm attending is:
Montessori Phonics & Language - Focuses on the application of phonics to teaching of reading & methodology for teaching of language. The session includes demonstration of Montessori graded phonic instruction (pink, blue & green schemes)

Teaching Math The Montessori Way - Introduces participants to the principles for the teaching of Mathermatics areas in the Montessori curriculum area. It inlcudes, numbers, 4 operations, decimals, number bonds, clock, shapes, fractions, money, etc.

Hubby did ask me whether am I really interested in Child's Education as he can see I got no patience into teaching Sebastian and Sidney. I told him that if I take this course doesn't mean that I would want to open a Montessori centre, just want to learn more about Child's Education.

Do You Look Your Age??

hahahaha..... i look younger than my age.... : )

You Probably Look Younger Than Your Age

You live a healthy lifestyle and know how to take care of yourself.

You'll probably have a youthful glow for many years.

Bad Day...

Yesterday was a bad yet mad day for me. Really dunno what’s gone wrong, easily get mad. Maybe, wake up at the wrong side of the bed.

Mad @ Music Class
Sebastian was attending his music class every weekend, so today reached the centre very early, then asked Sebastian to practice his piano while waiting for his teacher and classmates. He give me all sorts of reason like teacher is not here…. His friends is not here la… bla bla bla…. nevermind. Then come to theory teaching, he’s not paying attention, when teacher asked him question, he just showing his blank face….. ok, I almost out of control already, keep telling myself to cool down. It’s activity time, Sebastian bring out his activity book, so teacher was telling the children that she will play a track and listen carefully, then only do the activity. Again, Sebastian back to his dreaming and was not listening to the track, he ask me how to do the activities… by then, my temperature already shoot up d*** high… I really out of control already, I took a big deep breathe. I did not look at Sebastian and straight out from the centre and leave him alone there. How cruel I am !! (but of coz his daddy is in the centre la, how can I do such thing leaving my own child alone wor)

While in Sebastian music class (already in mad), my sis text me….. firstly, she text me to buy marmite, coz she want to cook marmite chicken. Then, received second sms asked to buy santan, few minutes later third sms ask me no need to buy santan as she will go to market later. Fourth, sms came in; ask me to buy santan again, as she can’t get it in market. (ggrrrrrrr…….. d*** blardy sister cannot make up her mind). After Sebastian music class, proceed to supermarket to buy all those stuff that my sis sms me, while looking for those stuff, five sms came in ask me to buy some veggies, KNN, she went to market for what did not buy santan, somemore veggie also did not buy…. Then she go there for what???? Finally, the sixth sms came in: “Chey, I know u very mad already and in bad mood but you remember to buy marmite, santan and veggies ya…”

In the Car
While on the way back to mum house with Sebastian and he is sleeping, so hubby question me:

Hubby: Why u left Sebastian in the centre and walk away?
Me: I’m very… very… mad with Sebastian went he in his music class
Hubby: Yes, I can see from your face when u walks out from the class, buy why must u leave him there?
Me: U r in the centre also wat, so I did not left him alone,
Hubby: Do u knows that u r very irresponsible for leaving your kid in the centre.
Me: First, I did not leave him “alone” as u r also in the centre.
Hubby: Why every time u must show your face in front of public that you are mad?
Me: I already tried to control myself that is why I walk away, if not then there will be a drama again at the shopping centre.
Hubby: Do u know that when u do this, I’m very ashamed (no face)
Me: ………………
Hubby: Why must you do this every time you get mad??
Me: ………………
Hubby: Harlo, I’m talking to you……
Me: ………………
Hubby: This is not the first time, can’t you control yourself.
Me: ……………… (really bey tahan already)
Hubby: Everytime when come to teaching your own children, you will be very mad…. Why?? Can’t you control yourself
Me: ……………… (in my heart: why this idiot keep on repeating this)
Hubby: Excuse me, I’m talking to you…..
Me: I know when I teach Sebastian, I’m out of control but every time I will try my best to teach him but what did you do when come to this.
Hubby: ………………..
Me: Did you ever check on Sebastian school work?
Hubby: ………………..
Me: Did you know how far is Sebastian progress?
Hubby: ………………..
Me: Did you every ask Sebastian how is he doing in shool?
Hubby: ………………..
Me: Excuse me, I’m talking to you…. Why u keep quite??
Hubby: ………………..
Me: Every time only know how to find fault on me
Hubby: OK!! OK!! That is past already……. Can we settle this?
Me: Settle what???
Hubby: Can u promise me not to show off your hokkien me face in public anymore. And I promise I will take time to follow up with Sebastian school progress.
Me: OK! Deal…..

Happily driving back to mummy house and Sebastian has his sweet dream in the car.

This morning while on the way to work, this car caught my attention, so I quickly graps my mobile phone and snap this picture. Did you notice the kid is sleeping but not on the car seat.... not on the back seat but on the speaker board. How can the parent let thier kid sleep on the speaker board. This is very dangerous somemore it's on the highway (Ampang Evelated Highway). Normally the speed you drive on the highway is rather fast, if happen (touch wood) he had emergency break, what do you think it will happen to the kid. I really can't imagine.....

Although I seldom use car seat for my kids, but I will make sure that my kids are sit properly.

First time kena tagged and it's from Montessorimum, thanks ya!!

Ok.. ok... talk about this between SAHM or FTWM, which one i prefer.... and have been thinking this for few years, if I choose SAHM, then everytime kena ask hubby for $$$$ as I luv shopping. Currently, I'm FTWM where I can use my $$$$ freely without being question.

Hhmmmm...... I think I would prefer ....... PTWM

1. I can still earn my own pocket money without asking hubby a pennies, as I don't like hubby nagging on me when I'm asking for $$$$, although he seldom but sometimes does.

2. At the same time, I can spent more time with my kids, fetching them to/from school and also to see my kidz everyday development

3. Finally, have my own time for shopping, facial, saloon, yoga...... where now I only do it once a week and only on weekend.

Ok... done *phew*. Although I don't have many blog buddies yet, but I will still pass this baton to.....


Here’s how it works:

1. So easy peasy, if you were given a choice, would you be a SAHM or FTWM? Just provide 3 darn good reasons.

2. Include your post link to the list below and Finally,

3. Tag another three mommies


1. Immomsdaughter prefers to be a SAHM

2. Miche prefers to be a SAHM too

3. SweetPea is happy being a PTWM

4. AllThingsPurple choose to be a WAHM

5. Montessorimum choose to be a PTWM

6. Kiasumum choose to be a PTWM

Milk Price UP!!

Everything increased... what else is not increase, tell me.
Sustagen price increased to RM19 - 700gm (for Sidney)... Dugro also price increased to RM20.00 - 1.1kg (for Sebastian), all increased by RM0.80 and RM2.00++ respectively. Normally I'll buy those milks at Chinese Medicine Hall but sometmes I will still look around at those hypermarkets where they have special offers.
Lask weekend went to Carrefour Kepong and they had special offers on Dugro Milk where I can save up to RM3 per pack, so I quickly grab 10packet but they put a notice there it's limited to 2 packs per person. I don't care and proceed to Q, while queuing, I saw another woman also buy alots and the cashier let her go. When come to my turn, the cashier said it's only limited to 2 packs, so I argue with the cashier (customer is always right ma.. ) and finally he let me go.... hahahaha
