Busy... Busy

These two days really busy at work... alot of my work still pending, wanted to finish it but my brain and my hand just don't cooperate. One word.... "LAZY"

When you are working... u feel like wanted to stop work and enjoy life at home with the kids. But when you were at home for few days or more.... you started to feel a little bit boring and wanted to go back to work. Why la... we cannot satisfied one hor??

And then you started to comparing this and that.... why some people stayed at home one so enjoying and we at work one so suffering (hehehe.... not really suffering la)

Music Class

It's already into four months that Sebastian attending the music class. So far he still enjoying and looking forward, but not really concentrate when teacher is teaching theory, as for playing the piano he is getting better and better.

I've bought piano for him about a month back, the keyboard type which cost around 500 bucks only as I do not want to buy the proper one first, afraid that he might not want to continue later on. Sekali, he come and tell me he want to play guitar.... *pengsan*

When you moved into your Home Sweet Home, you would wish to have nice and friendly neighbour. I've moved into my sweet home 7yrs ago and I'm lucky to have nice and friendly neighbour on the same floor we stayed but I'm unlucky too to have such an idiot neighbour one floor above us. That the problem when you stayed in condo.

This neighbour I've been arguing with her since she moved in, it's a aunties, few aunties staying together seldom see guy in there, maybe is their "Ku Por (old spinster) Home".

This aunty, whenever she washed the balcony floor she will pour the water all over and for sure the water will drip at our floor and others. Sometimes, me 'n my kids will sit at balcony during daytime to chit chatting, cutting their finger nails or enjoying the view and the water dripping from upper floor. I really hate this, can't she washed the floor properly, she think she the only one staying there izzit.... she think she only have balcony izzit... really piss me off. So, I went to her and scolded her like no one business. She apologies and and say it will never happen again.

Few weeks later, it's happen again, where hubby was standing at the balcony chatting on the phone and the water dripping. KNN... I went to her again but this time is different aunty, so I told her that you all stay in one roof no communication one izzit, again all the bullshitting she came out with.

After few peaceful day, no water dripping already but..... now dunno what the f*** she doing up there, you can hear the pulling table or chair sound not only daytime even middle of the night and it's everyday. Even the neighbour below us also can hear too. Can u imagine?

Now, whenever we bumped into each other in the lift, she dare not look at me or greet us.

My Workstation

I've been with this well known, public listed company for 7yrs. This company is located at golden triangle area, a few minutes walk to shopping malls, clubbing... etc. When I was young (am young now too...) I was so wanted to work in golden triangle area and start applying for a job here.

Then I sent in my application to apply for secretary job. I was called for an interview by this company for few times, first it was interview by the VP of Sales, then few weeks later I was called again for an interview by another VP of the other dept..... later on another AVP from Sales dept. too called me again for an interview. Gosh!!! as if I'm applying for GM post... called for so many interviews. Finally, I was offered a job there not as secretary.... nope not GM post.... but only as Event Executive.
See my workstation, you must think that we have a millennium office setup... but sad to say it's just an ordinary office setup with stain on the carpet and hole everywhere, even a "siew keong" (cockroaches)

My messy filing tray.....

Overview of our section....

You see the hole on the floor, where everytime my heel get stuck in there....

How can I Boost My Child's Immune System?

This also I get from the magazine to share with all mummies.

5-point Plan
Here are ways to make sure your child gets her normal share of infections at her age

  1. See if she is well and active in between episodes of infection, even though she may have lingering symptoms like a runny nose or cough that last longer than the usual
  2. Monitor your child's weight. It's a good sign if she gains weight steadily and does not get more than one bout of serious infection in a year
  3. Ensure she has a healthy, well-balanced diet that includes fruit and vegetables. Ask her what she likes too.
  4. Consider giving her a multivitamin supplement if she is fussy eater. Consult with your doctor
  5. She should get sufficient outdoor play and interaction, as keeping her indoors for fear of contracting more infections might just delay the process of building up immunity. Try introducing her to children her age who often engage in regular activities. Also look for parent-child programmes that allow you to bond with your child while keeping fit
Eight Dos & Dont's
Bear these in mind when helping your child fight the bugs and viruses
... ensure the child sleeps well every night
... see a doctor if her fever is persisten, recurrent of if there is poor weight gain
... try to get her back to daycare as soon as possible. It is usually good to do so once the fever has settled, unless your child has had an infection like hand, foot and mouth disease
... guarantee your child has been fully immunised, if you are uncertain, check with the doctor
... check that she washes her hands often at daycare and at home

... expose the child to cigarette smoke, as smoking in the home has been shown to increase schildren's susceptibility to colds, coughs, ear infections, sinus infections, wheezing and asthma
... expect to be given antibiotics for every episode of infection of fever, as the vast majority of childhood infections are due to viruses that don't respond to antibiotics
... stop the child from attending daycare if she has recovered. However, you may want to consider a smaller daycare group so there's also a smaller chances of exposure to children and strangers

Chaos Control

Saw below article on the magazine, and wanna share with all mummies.

Is your child often messy and scatter-brained? These strategies promise to get your child clean and organised in no time.

You can spot this child easily. He leaves a trial of crayons, slippers, books and even clothes wherever he goes. He also loses his pencil box all the time, and his bed looks like a war zone. As a parent, there's no need to despair or feel like it's your fault for not being strict enough. The truth is, some children (like adults) are more organised than others, while others are simply a mess. But if your child is indeed disorganised all the time, it is best to help him overcome his scatty habits immediately, as experts believe a lcak of organisation can affect self-esteem and academic success. Here's how:

At Home
Concentrate on fulfiling these four Rs, and you're off to a good start:
Routine: Set a certain time for him to do specific things. For instance, he can play his favourite computer game only after he bathes. Or he has to feed the hamsters before he can catch his beloved car racing TV programme.

Reminders: Post-it notes, with world like "wallet" and "water bottle" scribbled in big letters, will help him to remember the things he must bring. Stick these onto a notice board at the breakfast table or near the main door. Get him to stuff these items in his bag before going to school.

Rationale: Allow him to see the reasoning behind the order. This way, he will have a mental "place" of where things go and why. For example, ask him to figure out his clothes from head to toe. Get him to arrange his shirt, underwear, shorts and socks before he dresses up.

Returning: Note where he leaves his belongings. When he tells you he has "miplaced" the items, ask him where he last used them. Reinforce this message: Return the items to the source (where he took them from), sot hat they never get "lost".

Just Remember Not To:
Do The Task For Him. It may be faster, but he won't learn if you keep packing up and picking out his stuff for him

Issue Direct Orders. Use questions to jolt the memory. An order might go like this: "You ave P.E. tomorrow. Don't forget your P.E. T-shirt again, unless you want the teacher to punish you! Replace it with, "Have you checked our timetable for tomorrow? Have you got everything?"

With Homework
A calendar and colour codes are key:
Daily Time Table. Break up his schedule into time chunks. You can use orange for homework time (say, 45 minutes), followed by green for outdoors or rest time (15 minutes). If you're not at home to supervise the plan, get a simple wristwatch with an alarm. When the beep goes off everyday at the pre-set time, he'll know to start work then

Checklists. Get him into the habit of jotting down his homework in his school diary rather than committing tasks to memory. Check th ediary and come up with your own reward system if he lists the homework and does them. Or you could get a small notebook where he writes down personal reminders, like "Call mum at 2pm" as well.

Wall Planners. Set an example by marking out important dates, like birthdays and term breaks, on a wall calendar. Get anymore in the family to jot down key dates liek excursions, grandma's birthday or a holiday on it too.

Just Remember Not To:
Rush At The Last Minute. Dr Garret D Evans, associate professorof clinical psychology who writes for the University of Florida, advocates a checklist for the worst time of his day. For instance, if he's always rushing to catch the school bus, you both need to remind yourselves throught the list to turn onthe radio five minutes earlier than the time he needs to wake up. Come back again five minutes after the radio's been turned on to check up on him. See if he can meet all the requirements on his checklist on time, and if he needs mum's help.
