      • No one made the right guess. Tim likes black olives on his pizza. Surprised? Not many people like black olive but it has high mono-unsaturated fat, iron, vitamin E, dietary fiber and a good source of anti-oxidant. Some claim that it helps to control blood sugar and act as an anti-inflammatory. Next order of pizza will have extra topping of black olives.

        Timothy will dig all the olives out and eat it just like that. He will not leave any for me. The toppings that he doesn’t like are pineapple, green pepper and onions.



        Emily find that the pizza base sauce in pizza hut a little spicy. Ok she cannot take any hot stuff at this age. I wonder why they add chili in the pizza sauce.
        By the way, here is the cheesy pizza that Tim drew.

      • For those of you whose child is going to primary 1 next year, have you received any letter from the school or the ministry? I have registered Tim but didn’t receive any letter yet. Should I be worried?

        For those whose have children in primary, when does the letter come?

      • Can you guess what Timothy’s Favorite Pizza Topping is? Whenever we eat pizza, he would go digging for his favorite topping and whack them all. He will not leave any for us. I remembered when he was younger, he didn’t like it. He would spit it out. Now it is a different story. Oh well, I probably should request extra of this topping, next time I ordered a pizza.

      • I must say that our government has sped up the turnaround time for passport applications. It would even better if it is like AmericanPassport where you can get passport service on the internet.

        With them, you can get your passport done in 24 hours.
        Basically they provide 2 services, fast passport processing and fast visa processing. It will definitely guarantee you to be on your trip on time. American Passport Express is a nationally recognized non-government US passport service.

      • I have learned that I cannot keep boxes in my house as it has the tendency of attracting termites. Last time I used to keep a lot of boxes, I am not sure why. Now I have to get rid of all of them. It is better to use plastic containers to store things.

        A box cutter will certainly come in handy to cut boxes and fold it into smaller pieces to dispose. At Martor USA, you can find safety knives and cutters. As a parent, safety is the top priority, I must ensure that these cutters does not post any dangers to my children. Check out those safety cutters.

      • I remembered when I was young, I used to make my own kites from thin stick (lidi) and color paper. I would go up to the roof top or fly the kite out the window of the flat I lived in. It is fun to see the paper flying in the sky and controlling it.

        Last week, my hubby asked Tim & Em whether they want to go out to fly kite. They were excited and said yes without thinking. Penang can be very windy at times and it is also a good place for flying kite. We went to an open area near the sea and a nice view of the Penang Bridge. My hubby and I flew the kite up. It was windy and we didn’t need much effort to get it up. Another thing we do when we have nothing to do. ;)

        Guess what my kids did? They weren’t interested in flying kite. They sat on the brick and played sand instead. :rolleyes:

      • My family is a fan of bolsters, each of us has one. By the way, I hand sewn mine out of desperation. I did it when I was studying in Australia and in Australia, there is no such thing called bolster at that time. How boring. It is with me until now and it is extra soft. Brand: “Want Luen Pie”

        My children sleep in their own room and sometimes they would want mummy or daddy to sleep with them. I do sleep with them but not all the time. They will sleep by 9:30pm on their own and if I am sleeping with them, I will go in later.

        However my children wanted to make sure that I will be there on their bed, they kidnap my bolster. They take hostage of my bolster to exchange for my presence. Once, I took the bolster downstairs and I told them I am lazy to get it. I asked them to sleep first. After a few minutes, I heard footsteps from my study room and after I got out, my bolster was gone. Guess where it is found?!!

        If I tell them I sleep with them, I will do it because it is not good to lie to them. However they are being very cute in wanting my bolster as an assurance. Now even if I said I will sleep in my own room, they still hijacked my bolster. I must hide my bolster from them. :P

      • I took this picture today at the Mead Johnson Children Fair in Queensbay Mall. The event runs from 18-20th July. It has lots of fun games, learning and trivial for children. Each child is given a card and there are 9 stations for the child to complete. The child will receive a small bag of goodies after completion. You and I know, it is an event to promote Mead Johnson product namely Enfa products.

        Tim was a policeman but he ran off for an emergency call. Emily and Tim had fun playing.

      • I wanted to blog about this but I often forget. I am very frustrated with our local TV channels – NTV7, 8TV and TV3 are all guilty of it. Very often during a commercial break, you will find horror tv ads, horror movie ads or violence shows ads pop on. It really frightened the children. Worst is, sometimes these bad commercials come up in between a cartoon program break. It is horrifying.

        The cartoon is U rated which means it is suitable for children. However the commercials in between are not U rated and definitely not suited for children. Don’t you really hate that?!!

        I had to quickly switched channels so that my children will not see the horror stuff on TV. Now I cannot leave them alone it watching any TV programs without supervision. Any way I can complain about this?

        Universal rating states that it is for general viewing and should not contain material that may evoke fear or concern, no violence, no sexual acts, no language, no drug abuse, no nudity. Rate the commercials too! Malaysia TV, please adhere to this for our children sake!

      • I remembered I had a dreadful time teaching Timothy mathematics. Maybe I didn’t have the patience or I was losing it. I couldn’t understand why he cannot grasp the simple idea of adding. He just didn’t get it. For the first few times, I had to give away the answers to him.

        It is really frustrating. I show him a few times on how it is done. He copied my example very well. However when you asked him to do on its own, he gives me a blank face. :wall:

        I took out marbles, counting toys, papers and mathematic tools to help him. Every time he does his mathematic homework, I have to guide him. He will be lost if I don’t. He just couldn’t add anything by himself. On top of that, he was doing subtraction too.

        Yesterday, I was really surprised for the first time, he managed to do addition by himself. He didn’t just add single digit but double digits. He was only using his fingers to count. I asked him, what if you ran out of fingers, like 6 + 6. He showed me, he counted 6 first until all fingers close, open up another 6 fingers. Last time my mom asked me that questions, I told her I still have my toes. :P

        It was my fault to have little faith in him. I should believe in him. He made me remember the very basic thing about mathematics that is the more you practice, the more you get better at it. Hey he should have the mathematic gens because it is my favorite and best subject. Imagine I get a thrill at solving mathematics puzzle. By the way, my brother is worst, he is a mathematicholic, he took all the mathematic subjects in the University and he was given a second degree in Maths.

      • When my children were younger, I am glad I trained them to sit in the stroller and I never regretted it. I can bring them anywhere and I can do my shopping in peace. I don’t have the chase my children around the mall because they are with me in the stroller.

        Today strollers come in different designs and some are very comfortable. It allows a child to sleep in it. I like the Bob stroller range. It provides compartments to put thing in and it can be folded in smaller size. Some even has a shield to protect the child from rain water. It is definitely a good brand for your children.

      • Last Saturday I attended my church friend’s wedding. I observed that the only time a dad will wear a tuxedo is at his own wedding day and when he is walking his gal down the wedding aisle. Probably I will see my hubby wearing a tuxedo when Emily gets married sometime in the future.

        I saw a dad who dressed very casually in church, not much effort spent in clothes selection. Don’t all guys do that? He comes week in and out with the same design of shirt and pants. However on the day when his son got married, he was in smart and elegant tuxedo. He seems like a different man.

        Anyway, it was Emily’s first experience in a wedding ceremony. She also tried her photography skills with her father’s guidance. When she came home, she took a pearl necklace, placed it on her head like a wedding band, holding her kor kor’s hand and pretended to be a bride. :rolleyes: That’s my gal.

      • It is time to teach Timothy how to pay for things and get the correct change back. Next year he will be in primary school. Wow this is too fast for me. Anyway, the other day my family was eating in an old kopitiam. There were some sweets on the counter, 20 sens for three. My hubby gave Timothy 20 sens and Emily also wanted 20 sens.

        They set out on a mission to get 3 sweets. Timothy gave the aunt 20 sens and pointed at the sweets that he wanted. Aunty gave him the sweets and he was happy. The thing with Timothy is after he gets what he wanted he walked away. He never looked back to check whether he got the change back, if any. He did that many times.

        Emily is surprisingly very smart, not sure whether good or bad. She pointed to aunty her selection. Aunty gave her the sweets, she smiled and walked away. Guess what??!! She still has the 20 sens in her hands.

        Okay, more training to do….

      • I must give trophies for my hubby and children. They have done great things and I really appreciate them.

        My hubby who is able to take care of the children, single handedly for weeks while I am away on business trip and without a maid. Timothy who helps me all the time, he never once refused me when I asked him to do things for me. Emily who makes me laugh all the time with her cheeky actions. They are all so lovely and it is a blessing from God for this wonderful gift.

      • If you walk into a pharmacy, you will find many brands of diet pills available. Some claim to be natural and some claim to give results in a short time or money back guarantee. There are people who I can say are a little desperate at times and get allure in by the marketing words on the label. Somehow when they read the label, they get tempted by words like fast, slim, beauty, natural, effective, top, best and etc.

        However I do advise strongly that if you are going to take diet pills, do read up on diet pill review before attempting to take any of these pills. It is for your health safety.

      • Last Saturday, I decided to go check out what’s in Penang MATA fair. I was hoping to get some good deals. I was planning to go Bali with my family, end of the year using my frequent flyer points. I was quite disappointed really because I was swamp with credit card promoters. I am not kidding, every few feet I walked I bumped into credit card promoters. Either that or those vacation club promoters.

        Worst is those promoters like to stand in the middle of the way. For me it is like playing those driving arcade games, walking from one end to the other trying to avoid them.
        Sad to say, I only found one booth offering a so so deal for Bali hotels. Anyway, at one of the booth, a nice guy allured Timothy and gave him a free VCD. I tell you, it is not free. It was a VCD that promotes Hong Kong Disneyland. Now guess where are we going now?

        Anyway, I didn’t book any tour but will be planning to go Hong Kong Disneyland. I have been to Hong Kong many times so no problem for me to get around. I hope to meet up with some university friends there too. Anyone wanna join me?

        Opps, let’s get to the topic, I got my children a huge map. It is kind of cool because it has all the countries flag and landmarks around the countries. Now I can teach my children all the countries around the world. They know where is Malaysia, US, Hong Kong and North Pole. They can recognize Malaysia flag too.

        Don’t ask me why Malaysia Landmark is a tree and not the Petronas Twin Tower.

      • Parents are slowly becoming bloggers which I am not sure whether it is a good or bad thing. I guess the motivation is for us to jot down our children’s development, sharing the experiences and gaining the knowledge from other parents. However I as a parent do not share everything.

        Now it is very simple to start a blog. You can either go with free hosting that has it limitation or you can chose to pay a little fee to host on a webhosting server. Where to find these good webhosting services, you can check out WebHostingGeeks.com.

        One thing I like about WebHostingGeeks.com is that they have a table of top 10 best web hosting and top 10 Best Budget web hosting. You can compare the different services and features listed. They have review written on these web hosts that will help you to select the right web host. All the best to you in starting a new blog!

      • After hearing comments from all of you, I am so glad that I am not an alien here. I soaked my school shoes on Friday and washed it on Saturday morning. I let it dry and apply the shoe white on Sunday.

        When I was in school, I love playing netball on the muddy field. In fact I was the school netball player. After a good game, my shoe will covered with mud stain. If I do not soak my shoes, it will be difficult to get the dirty stain out. Anyway, it became a habit.

        By the way, if you are from BBGS and batch of 1987, there is a reunion on 25th July 2008 in Concorde Hotel. However I will not be able to make it due to busy July schedule. :(
