    • I Won!

      July 29, 2005

      I received a letter yesterday saying I won a BRAUN THERMOSCAN from a contest that I participated months ago. I was so happy. However I already got a Braun thermoscan. It is really helpful especially you have baby or toddler who is having fever.

      I am probably going to sell this for a lower price, anybody wants? Take that money and go treat my family to a nice dinner.

      So far, I have won handphones, luggage bag, trips, thermoscan, toaster, a few hampers and lots of soft toys. It will be good to win some $$. Opps, I shall not be greedy.

      I can remember that when I was in primary school, I took part in McDonald’s colouring contest and I won first prize. They sent me lots of McDonald’s goodies and a membership card that is good for that year. It would be the first time I ever win anything.

    • Weight

      July 28, 2005

      Lots of mothers asked me how to loose weight after pregnancy. I am the wrong person to ask because I want to gain weight, not loose it. Here is my chart of weight.

      First Son
      Started: 48 kg
      7th Weeks: 51 kg
      10th Weeks: 53 kg
      17th Weeks: 57 kg
      21st Weeks: 59 kg
      25th Weeks: 63.5kg BP at 98/55 (low pressure)
      29th Weeks: 65kg (Warning from the doctor!!)
      32nd Weeks: 66kg
      34th Weeks: 66.5kg
      36th Weeks: 68.5kg
      38th Weeks: 68.5kg
      39th Weeks: 68.5kg
      40th Weeks: 68.5kg (Addition of 20.5 kg, WOW!)

      Baby delivered at 3 kg, that will be 17.5kg to give away. I weighed myself a day after my delivery, the weighing machine told me it was 59 kg. Imagine 9.5 kg lost, 3 kg go to my boy and where did the 6.5kg went? Water? Placenta? I donno.

      Second Gal
      Started: 50kg
      6th Weeks: 52kg
      9th Weeks: 53kg
      12th Weeks: 55kg
      16th Weeks: 57kg
      21st Weeks: 60kg
      24th Weeks: 62.5kg
      31st Weeks: 65.5kg (Durian Season)
      32nd Weeks: 66kg
      34th Weeks: 67.5kg
      37th Weeks: 68kg
      38th Weeks: 69kg (Addition of 19kg)

      Baby delivered at 3.8kg, that will be 15.2 kg to give away. I lost my weight pretty fast this round as I was very diligent in breastfeeding my gal. She gains lots of weight. Now she is 13 months and weight 11.5kg.

      Now I am at 46kg, I need 4kg. I been eating a lot of buffet and durian, but no help. Any free lunches around? Anyway, bottom line, as long as you are healthy, weight is not a big problem. Health is my priority. Hey if you loose all the weigh and you look like unhealthy, it is very scary. I have a colleague like that, he was very fat, with tummy and all. He went on a fruits diet. Now he looks horrible, saggy looking and like a drug addict. Have a balance diet and do lots of exercise!!

    • The Interview

      July 27, 2005

      I received this in my email today and wish to share with all of you:

      Subject: FW: The Interview

      In light of the many perversions and jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different: This is not intended to be a joke, it’s not funny, it’s intended to get you thinking.

      Billy Graham’s daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson asked her “How could God let something like this happen?” (regarding the attacks on Sept. 11).

      Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response. She said, “I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we’ve been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives.

      And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?”

      In light of recent events…terrorists attack, school shootings, etc. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O’Hare (she was murdered, her body found recently) complained she didn’t want prayer in our schools, and we said OK.

      Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school. the Bible says thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.

      Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn’t spank our children when they misbehave because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock’s son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he’s talking about. And we said OK.

      Now we’re asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don’t know right from wrong, and why it doesn’t bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.

      Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with “WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.”

      Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world’s going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.

      Funny how you can send ‘jokes’ through e-mail and they spread like wildfire but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing.

      Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.

      Are you laughing?

      Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you’re not sure what they believe, or what they WILL think of you for sending it. Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us.

      Pass it on if you think it has merit. If not then just discard it… no one will know you did. But, if you discard this thought process, don’t sit back and complain about what bad shape the world is in!!

    • Mishap

      July 22, 2005

      I have been busy this week. FIL had a bad accident. A lady knocked his motorbike down and left him there. She gave the worst excuse that she is late in picking her son up. What a cruel person? She can leave a injured person lying on the road, bleeding and drove away.

      My FIL called his family and friends to help. He was taken to General Hospital (GH). He wanted GH because he gets pensioner benefit, as he was a government servant. He was taken to do X-ray. After the X-ray was done, he was pushed to his wad. Nothing was given to him, no medication (pain killer), and no wound dressing. He has a broken shoulder bone and some crack ribs. Nurse just put a bandage sling on to his arm and hand to prevent movement. He lied on his bed for more than 6 hours and still nothing was administered. He was also denied food, in case surgery is required.

      When my hubby and I visited him, he was in a painful state. We persuaded him to switched hospital. Finally he gave in. We had to wait for the doctor to discharge him. While doing that, I went to the other hospital to arrange to receive him. I was very upset with GH as we were not allowed to keep the X-ray. GH claimed it is their policy. What a silly policy and inhuman one too??!! Imagine my FIL had to go through another round of excruciating pain for X-ray to be done in another hospital.

      After a long day, finally X-ray was done, specialist was called in, he said he was not critical and surgery is not needed. He told my FIL to get plenty of rest. He also was given an injection of painkiller when he arrived. When it was all done, it was already close to midnight.

      Now he is feeling better and he was discharge today. It takes minimum 3 months for him to recover. I was happy that I could help him. My company were entitled to corporate rate for the hospital for parents and parent in law.

      It is always a wonder why older generation refuse to get insurance. My FIL does not have any insurance. If anything happen, it will be out of the pocket money. Anyway, for the sake of your children, think about your own insurance.

    • Report Card

      July 20, 2005

      I must say I am not a very bright student in my school days but I managed. I am not a straight A person. In fact the first 2 years of my secondary school, I treat it as “Honey Moon” year. Hey who can achieve what I did? I have 9 different grades for 9 different subjects. Children, please do not follow my footstep.

      When it came to SRP (now called PMR) year, I got number 1 throughout each term. My brain suddenly started to go on high speed. Came Form 4, another “Honey Moon” Year. I just developed a liking for Mathematics. I love solving problems. My math books were practically traveling from one classmate to the next. I did well in both Add Maths and Modern Maths.

      After Form 5, I did a pre-U course and went into High School (similar to Form Six Upper) in Australia. I don’t know how, I managed to get into their public school. I just had to pay Aus 100 for school fees. Dirt Cheap but I have to bare all the expenses and accommodation. My sister was working there, she sponsored me. I did very well in High School there and got a scholarship for Bachelor Degree in Computer Science for 4 years. Last year was a research year.

      It was a totally different experience in studying overseas. I learned to be independent and had the opportunity to learn another culture. In fact, there were lots of students from different countries, like Hong Kong, Indonesian, Vietnamese, Korean & Japanese. Last year of my studies, I got to work as a tutor in the University and earn a lot. Earnings were more than my first job salary. Too bad, I had to come home. In fact I miss home. Home is still the best.

      Thanks to my parents for all the support they have given to me! Now I have to pass it on to my children. Tough but I am working on it.

    • Bon Odori Festival

      July 16, 2005

      Today I brought the kids to the Bon Odori festival in Esplanade in Penang. The place was filled, few hundreds people were there. Parking was nearly impossible. God provided us one, although it was a distance walk from Esplanade but it is sure better than none. We reached there about 8pm.

      Lots of food stalls around and hungry people too. There was a popular stall selling mega huge balloon and water balloon that they played like a yoyo. I got my son a big balloon. My son played for a while and passed it back to me. I can see $$ flying away, anyway, it was for charity.

      The place was dark, not enough lighting. Fortunately, they placed lots of tables and chairs.

      There were dances & performance. Many people joined in to dance. Lots of Japanese people around. Mostly there were in Kimono. Too bad, no kimono for sale else would have gotten one for my gal. I saw so many Japanese children in Kimono, they were very adorable.

      Fireworks were started sharp at 9pm. It was beautiful and real loud. My children enjoyed it. People started leaving once the fireworks was over, so did we.

    • Stop At 2.

      July 15, 2005

      10 reasons why I am stopping at 2.

      10.  2 is just nice, 3 is a crowd, 4 is far too many. I wanted 6,
           when I was young.
       9.  I can include whole family for travel. Air tickets are not
       8.  When they fight, daddy can hold 1 and mummy can hold
           the other.
       7.  Financially, I can support 2 and give the best to them.
       6.  Looking at the world situation, if anything happens, I can
           still protect 2.
       5.  The car can fit only 2, one at each corner.
       4.  Medical Expenses increases every year.
       3.  Imagine doing confinement for all your children????
       2.  I want to tutor both of them in their school work,
           rather than to send them to tuition centre.
       1.  The family have equality & balance – 2 males
           & 2 females. No gender issues.

      I sure miss being pregnant though!!!!

    • Sponsor A Child

      July 14, 2005

      Sponsor a child. You get tax exemption for it. Start giving to the needy rather than those who squander your hard earn money.

      I am sponsoring a child in India. She is from a poor and abuse family background. I don’t get any tax exemption becuase the organisation is not part of the IRB program. Anyway, I am happy to sponsor her in her daily living and education.

      Here are a few options:

      Women Aid Org

      Red Cross

      World Vision

      LUKE 18:22 So when Jesus heard these things, He said to him, “You still lack one thing. Sell all that you have and distribute to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.” (NKJV)

    • I am a GIRL

      July 14, 2005

      I am a GIRL.

      Ah Yi: Is he a boy?
      Mom: No she is a girl.

      Ah Yi: Look like a boy.
      Mom: She is wearing a dress.

      Ah Yi: Boy boy, you so cute.
      Mom: Hello, she is a gal. *geram and walk away with baby*

      I am definitely a girl, cute, pretty and chubby. Do I look like a boy to you? If yes, maybe you need LASIK or cataract operation. Opps sorry….hehehehe

      Jasmine told me that there is a myth that said if someone tells you your baby looks like a boy, your next baby will be a boy. If your baby looks like a girl, your next baby is a girl.

      Do I look like a girl or boy?

    • Walk

      July 12, 2005

      My gal achieved another milestone. Finally my gal knows how to walk without support. She was cruising at the living room. She started walking when she was 10 months. She will go from chair to table to chair to table. Comes 1 year, she will walk 1 step and crawl the rest. Last month she was walking 3 steps and crawl.

      I had to dig out her brother old shoes and let her wear when we go out. I bought her a red shoe and now her feet grew out of it. Sigh, she outgrew a lot of things. When it comes to shoe, you can’t really get an extra big size. It doesn’t work that way. The shoe will fall off as she walks. If the shoe is too tight, the feet will not developed well. The size must be just right. Fortunately I kept most of her brother’s old shoes that will fit her.

      I am so proud of her. YEHAAA. I guess mummy is happier than she is. Now I am wondering when she can go shopping with mummy.
