Been Cheated! Damn!

Today morning I went to the buy old gold shop to sell of some old & unfit gold.

It has been kept in my drawer for quite some time, until it got my attention last week when I was cleaning up my things. Nowadays wearing gold really put attraction to thief, so I dare not to wear any of them!

I think I've not worn them more then 2 years+! Ever since I heard my neighbor being snap on the neck for a gold necklace by a motorist near my housing area. However, the thief did not get to snap the necklace but my neighbor fell down on the floor and got some scratches on the knee. It’s really not worth it.

So I plan to sell it off and get some cash instead of exchanging new gold items.

I think I was really stupid! When I think back what happen today!

I was really conscious & putting it important on how much they gave me the price per gram.

One shop really did offer a high price, so I gave him all the goods and he weights it. I did not weight it myself at home, so I assume the weight he provides me is correct (This was my HUGE mistake!).

Heaven’s sake! I came home and found some of my gold receipts and found out the total weight is much more then what the guy weighted for me in the shop!

HOLLY shit! I've been CHEATED!

No tears to wipe now!
What have done is done.
No regrets!

This really did teach me a HUGE lesson!
Never trust people easily! Especially anything does with money!
This lesson really did cost me much!
Sniff sniff ~~~~~~ Sad & Unpredictable

New Laptop & Camera!

Yesterday my mom & me went to Lawyat to buy a small laptop & a camera for my younger sister.

Her training is going to end soon and journey of flying around is going to begin!
She would need a lightweight laptop & a camera (Take pictures in the plane, Hand phone are not allow to be on during the flight).

All along I was using ASUS laptop, bought 4 years++ ago.
It is still functioning very well!

My mom bought a laptop last year.
Somehow that model was not that good.
Have sent to repair few times in 1-year time!
Luckily it is under warranty!
As per the technician guy, that model have lots of problems!
Oh dear, no regrets at this time...

We went to look around for the mini laptop
(not more then 10 inch wide).

Checked out Acer laptop, the memory is only 8G and it's too little.

Asus Eee PC, it has 30G memory! Hey that's good!

Bargain on the price RM1399, actually didn’t get any further discount only got us some free gifts. A headphone + mic & a mouse.

The price I think was good because other shops sold at RM1499 & RM1599, of course with more free gifts!
Eee PC 900 (BLACK)
I rather get it in a cheaper price then all the free gifts.
But of course even with cheaper price, my mom will still ask for free gifts. Haha :D

Camera that we bought was the CANON ixus.
The camera cost RM880 inclusive 4G memory card & a screen protector.

Canon iXUS (PINK)

Its really fun doing all this shopping, in few hours time we spent RM2279!
Since we need it so urgently we didn't really take much time buying it (2 hours, is it consider fast?)

My mom & the new laptop and camera :)

Reach home and tested out the laptop & camera.
Feeling exciting & happy with the products!
Now we are waiting for my sister to come pick up the goods once touch down Malaysia :)

Cockroaches Vs Pandan Leaves!

The most scariest thing in my life is the C* insect!
I dare to do anything to get away from it!


Think this is because of my mom.
She would climb up the dinning table if she sees one on the floor!
(Same goes to me :p)

One mid night (2am) I was heading to the kitchen to make milk for my daughter, to my fright! There was 3 C*!

One on the floor, one on the wall and one just in front of my water dispenser!
Great! How in the world I’m going to make milk!

I was stone by then!
My daughter was crying (waited for too long).
Me? Panic!? Husband? Still at work! Will not be back soon!

What should I do?! Don’t even dare to go near it!
Hoping the C* near the water dispenser will go a little far away, at least I can get the water, as my milk bottle and milk powder is already in my reach.

Waited, waited & waited… … Nothing seems to happen!
OK! Have to take some action! And I mean FAST!

Took a Sheltox, from I think 3 feet away, I sprayed the C* hoping it will walk away a little!
Waited for around 5 minutes! The C* only hide in the cupboard.
(Don't dare to use it at the first place cus afraid when I spray the C* will FLY AROUND ~~!)

Stretch my hand to get some water and quickly run back to the dining room.
At last it took me 30 minutes to make a bottle of milk, with me all wet with sweat in my pyjamas!

After feeding my daughter, I sat back and took a deep breath!
Then I SMS my husband about what happen.
My husband said: ‘ Pity my baby’.

When my husband got back home at 3.30am, he spray Sheltox from back to front and all the C* came out running around!
Guess what? There were 8 of them! Can’t imagine that much!

In the morning my grandmother went to the market and bought 3 bunches of PANDAN LEAVES!

I wonder what was that for?

It’s to keep the C* away! she answered.

Oh really?! Does it help?!
OK then, to see the truth!
I tie up the leaves and trough it in every cupboard.

I think it’s almost 1 week, at the moment I do not see any of then in the mid night
(touch wood! touch wood! touch wood!)

The leaves also gave a good aroma in the cupboard!
Amazingly & unbelievable! Haha!
Really would like to share it out!

Because the C* really does hunt me!
When I close my eyes to sleep I would also think of how horrible it looks like!

DURAIN FESTIVAL, yummy yum yum :p

These few days, were very hot days in Kuala Lumpur!~

But however, we all got very attracted by the durian stalls all the way on the roadside!

The durians were pilling up like mountains!
Ops, forgot to take a picture of them :p

So yesterday, we all went for Durians!!!
That was our dinner :)

Reach the stalls at the roadside at about 5.30pm, taking good look at the durians.

We have chosen 20 Durians that cost us RM40.
I think it is Cheap!

Sat on the table and started the feast!













Don't be surprise that was the one we have finish eating!
And yet the one's on the table we are still eating :p
But we didn’t really get to finish all, did too take away some.

I think the amount is not too much for 5 adults :p

The durian was really GOOD!


The advantage of sit down and eat, is we get to exchange the bad durians if it does happen that we choose one :)

I think most of us would know that durian is a very heaty fruit!
In order to cool down the heat is to take an empty durian shell, rub some salt on the white skin & put drinking water in it and drink 2~3 shells.

But have you heard how to get rid of the durian aroma in your hand?
This was taught by my own grandfather, which he does own a durian mountain last time when I was still a kid.

Just take a durian shell and rub your finger on the inner white skin under the tap water.

Smell your fingers again?

Does it work or not?
Try it yourself :p

It's the Durian festival now!
I think for overseas friends should have getting imported durians now in the supermarket :)


***** ENJOY DURIANS!!! *****

Having new shoes problem?

This was my Chinese New Year shoes (It's old by now!)

Can't afford to wear heels when I'm always carrying a baby. The store keeper says these are 'sotong' shoes (Korea trend now days), the side of the shoes contains rubber that enables you to stretch on it.

The shoe really does feel comfortable!
It's like you are not wearing any shoes at all!

Somehow it is not advisable if your walking distance is long
(Can you imagine not wearing shoes and walk for 5 hours of shopping?!)

Yeah it gave me a stiff pain on the foot!
(did teach me a lesson to wear sport shoes!)

However, there's more problem to worried about new shoes!
It gave me red spot of pain killing water pops and skin peeling off due to the new fabric.

There are all kinds of saying by the old people that I’v heard from to avoid it!
a) Trough your new shoes on the floor as hard as you can
b) Bite on it!
c) Rub the fabric to make it soft.

But I think all these method did’t really work out :p

This was a tip by my grandmother.
Yeah, old people advise too! But it works!

Take a candle and rub it all over the shoes, especially the place that gave me all the pain!

In no time!

I tried it on again.

It was really comfortable!

No more pain at all!

If the pain really does come back the 2ND time when you wear your shoes, just rub candle on it again!

It's so simple and convenient!

Maybe some of you did know about this technique.
But no harm to share it out with you all!

Cus It really did impress me :)

Gastric Attack!


Yesterday evening before 6pm, my husband came back and brought daughter & me to the children park. My husband bought us J Co Donuts from Sunway Pyramid!

6 flavors! Mango, Cheese, Pizza, Tiramisu, Strawberry & Oreo. It was so delicious that I can't resist to eat 1 follow by 1, until the box was all left empty, not even some cream was stuck on it!

Haha! That was fun & delicious!


However, something bad happen after a while...

I had a very bad gastric! Due to too much of cream! 6 Donuts hubby & me finish within 15 minutes in the park.
Haha... think it was a little too much :)

I always have some Actal pills (for gastric) standby in the house, because once in a while I will do have gastric if I'm not careful with my food. Hah! Like what happen yesterday! Unfortunately 4 Actal pills have all eaten up! And I'm still with the major pain! Oh dear!

My husband then asks me to take some of my daughter's gripe water. Huhh!! Gripe Water (fei chai sui, in chinese), what??!! Did I hear it wrong? Then I was thinking all non-sence... Will it make me fat? Gripe Water is meant for babies & kids. My husband then took out a soupspoon, and said: 'take 2 spoon of it, you'll should feel OK by then.'

OK, what ever it is. As long as it can take off my pain, i'll do anything! Drank it fast, and sat down to rest for a while. Amazingly, I didn’t bother about my pain, and was enjoying watching the movie showing on TV.

I went and take a glance of the Gripe Water Bottle: 'Relief from wind pains, digestive upsets'.
I think It really make sense! It really works!

Something funny caught me… :p
Under the dosage column: 1 to 6 month baby 1 teaspoon... two years & above 2-3 teaspoon.
Haha, Then I was wondering 2-soup spoon for adults (thinking to myself).

Drank another 2 spoon full before I went to sleep, slept well last night with no disturb until this morning. Woke up this morning & I was feeling well!

My younger sister also does have this kind of sickness 'GASTRICK!' a very bad one too! Every time she gets hunger, she must find food or else she’ll get gastric attack. During her empty stomach, she’ll have to take small portion of food and eat slow!

However, she cured it with a method that it sounds so impossible!
A Taiwan friend gave the advice.

After meal, squeeze 1 whole lemon juice only and add a pinch of salt, drink it once a day. Continue with it about 1 week, gastric will go off automatically! Say bye bye to gastric!

My sister was the white mouse.
The result was unbelievable! It works!

Merry Go Around

Today's Saturday! And my husband is not working today, would spend the day with the family.

Went over to my mother in law's Condo for swimming, it really has been sometime I've not been working out. I've only gone for 2 laps and I was panting, and feeling my arms & legs are getting heavier & heavier...

Wow, I really see the difference! When I was in college, there's an Olympic length swimming pool and I can do 20 laps easily! Today? 2 laps of a small swimming pool, I'm already feeling tired!

Ever since I was pregnant I did not do any major exercise that I enjoyed much, Swimming, Fast/Modern Dance, Gym workouts... etc. That makes me into today, panting after 2 laps of a small swimming pool. Now only I realize!

After the tired exercise, we all went out for dinner. Kenny Rogers at the IOI Mall (Puchong), why there? Because that's the only place where we can find food & Merry go round! Which obviously the priority for my daughter to enjoy :)

My daughter really did enjoyed the ride! By the way, she went on for 2 times, before & after dinner :) Love to see her smile!

Happy weekends to all my dear friends!

Facebook Request?

Not really into facebook.
It has too many applications inside!
No time to go into the application to find out what in the world it was created for.

Monica, you are not really the one who actually don't reply peoples request.
Haha me too. Bad me :p

It's really not in purpose, too busy looking after my baby.
I'm not able to on my laptop when she is around, will only get to go online when she's asleep.

I have been clicking ignore for more then 10 times, and I have still this much to go! Oh dear! What to do?


I decide to click on the "Ignore all". (Did't see it in the first place :p)

I did that because some of the request was like 'N' years ago.
Of course I did accepted some request that was sent recently.

One of the application I did enjoy was the Chinese Astrology

I always do like to read about Astrology, never miss to read it on every Sunday's newspaper (Nanyang).

It is good to know things that we should avoid or be alert to chances.
No harm to know, but of course not to rely on it 100%.

Antibiotic, I need you!

I was really missing in action! Last week I was super duper BUZY!
Finally my body cannot stand all the running & less liquid! Fell sick on last Saturday.
Got bad flu, nose block, ears block, sore trout, dizziness...

Ate Panadol soluble in the morning & at night....... No use at all!

Sunday, my panel doctor was not open. Have to go to the another doctor, where I will only go to him on Sunday's or non working hours, cus they operate 18hours. Surprise me was, I think the whole clinic has sold to an Indian doctor or so... didn't bother much, I just need some flu pill I thought.

The doctor was so young, and did not feel he has a Doctor's professionalism. But I know it's OK, cus I just need some flu pill & antibiotics which I think its very common. Cost me RM30, went off.

Got home immediately ate all the pills, slept for 4 hours, got up feeling better. Continuously ate the medicine until Tuesday.

Tadaah!!! ...... TODAY I'm as brand new as I was before!

I think I'm out of antibiotic in my body!

However, slept my time over. My house work??!! Looks like a loooong list to me!!

Its good to be back in shape again!
No Mather how much house work I will have to do, be HEALTHY!

My Sister Left On 14th June 08

My youngest sister Cinny got offered a job as Gulf airline stewardess. Left to Bahrain for training on 14th June. We all sent my Sis to KLIA, well some tears did burst out from my mom :) She said it's because some other friends was crying so she just got influence. Haha :D Yeah, right!
My mom currently called me up very frequent, was curious what has happen. One day I found out, she was very lonely at home. No one to talk to, get angry to, discuss to... Even when come to groceries buying, the very frequent question 'what would you like to eat, tell me & I will buy the necessaries'. This question was frequent ask to me before I was married :p Then followed by my youngest sister.

My brother? He's not staying with my mom and only comes back once in a while.

My Elder sister? She's working at night & sleeps in the day time, don't really get much chance to talk to her.
My mom was thinking how would Cinny get used to the environment & worried on how to take care herself(1st time leaving house). However the question I think went the other way around?! My mom was not getting used of the environment at home.

However, Luckily that she is still busy running in & out the temple to help things out. At least won't keep her too empty at all times :p
Time will do keep things going on, and I will be around for her (she was a single mother ever since I was 18 years old. She did anything to keep 4 of us well!)
My mom you are the very best!

My Award Winning Princess!

Wonder why I was disappearing lately? My Baby won an award from Canon road show in KLCC! The prize is a Canon Selphy ES2! Wow! Can't believe we actually won it!

It was on 2nd June 2008, it was the last day of the roadshow in KLCC. There was a corner for the children photography competition. My husband was supplying sound & light to the Canon roadshow, that's why Me & my baby was well prepared for the photography session :)

Tried so many ways to get her best smile, sang to her, tickle tickle, say cheese, smile darling... all does not work :0( My grandmother requested a stool from the photography lady to let my baby to stand on, which I think it's quite dangerous, but of course all of us is there to look after.
Once she stood on the stool, she begin to dance & smile and become so active! Mmm... this is because she thinks she is on the stage and there are lots of audience, that's why she started her performance! Haha, everyone laugh out & lots of photos was shot! Way to go! Great idea grandma!

We didn't get a soft copy form them, so I have to snatch the original photo just to show you all :)
Until last Monday 23 June 08, received a call from Canon to inform me that my baby photo has won the award! Wow, really can't believe from the 4 days event, my daughter was TOP rated!


On 24 June 08 we went and collect the prize, brought back home & discovered about the machine. It's so great that you can even add in frames, clip art, cropping, blur effects...etc Just before you print! Tested on the printer, the printout was very amazing! The quality looks much more better compare from the shops.

I printed 5 photo to see the quality.

The Right hand photo was a frame that I added on (ducklings)! Love the printer!

Thanks my darling! Got mummy something very use full! :)

Have a nice and MEANINGFUL day

I've actually received the article from my email, forward over from my husband. I think all the sayings are very true & meaningful to me, and I would really like to share out. Maybe you also did received it via email, if yes pls leave some foot prints on my comment colomn. If not, please spare some time to go thru, although it's a little long. Thanking you for reading ^o^

TRUST is a very important factor for all relationships. When trust is broken, it is the end of the relationship. Lack of trust leads to suspicion, suspicion generates anger, anger causes enmity and enmity may result in separation.

A telephone operator one day she received a phone call. She answered, "Public Utilities Board." There was silence. She repeated, "PUB." There was still no answer. When she was going to cut off the line, she heard a lady's voice, "Oh, so this is PUB. Sorry, I got the number from my Husband's pocket but I do not know whose number it is." Without mutual trust, just imagine what will happen to the couple if the telephone operator answered with just "hello" instead of "PUB".

["Many people praised you for a successful marriage. Could you please share with me your secret?" The father-in-law answered in a smile, "Never criticize your wife for her shortcomings or when she does something wrong. Always bear in mind that because of her shortcomings and weaknesses, she could not find a better husband than you." We all look forward to being loved and respected. Many people are afraid of losing face. Generally, when a person makes a mistake, he would look around to find a scapegoat to point the finger at.. This is the start of a war. We should always remember that when we point one finger at a person, the other four fingers are pointing at ourselves. If we forgive the others, others will ignore our mistake too.

["I am looking for a spouse. Please help me to find a suitable one." The SDU officer said, "Your requirements, please." "Oh, good looking, polite, humorous, sporty, knowledgeable, good in singing and dancing. Willing to accompany me the whole day at home during my leisure hour, if I don't go out. Telling me interesting stories when I need companion for conversation and be silent when I want to rest." The officer listened carefully and replied, "I understand you need television." There is a saying that a perfect match can only be found between a blind wife and a deaf husband, because the blind wife cannot see the faults of the husband and the deaf husband cannot hear the nagging of the wife. Many couples are blind and deaf at the courting stage and dream of perpetual perfect relationship. Unfortunately, when the excitement of love wears off, they wake up and discover that marriage is not a bed of roses. The nightmare begins.

["It is easier to reshape a mountain or a river than a person's character." It is not easy to change. Thus, having high expectation on changing the spouse character will cause disappointment and unpleasantness. It would be less painful to change ourselves and lower our expectations..

["A speech will either prosper or ruin a nation." Many relationships break off because of wrong speech. When a couple is too close with each other, we always forget mutual respect and courtesy. We may say anything without considering if it would hurt the other party. A friend and her millionaire husband visited their construction site. A worker who wore a helmet saw her and shouted, "Hi, Emily! Remember me? We used to date in the secondary school." On the way home, her millionaire husband teased her, "Luckily you married me. Otherwise you will be the wife of a construction worker." She answered,"You should appreciate that you married me. Otherwise, he will be the millionaire and not you.." Frequently exchanging these remarks plants the seed for a bad relationship. It's like a broken egg - cannot be reversed.

["Very stupid. Why neither of them ride on the donkey? "Upon hearing that, the husband let the wife ride on the donkey. He walked besides them. Later, an old man saw it and commented, "The husband is the head of family. How can the wife ride on the donkey while the husband is on foot?" Hearing this, the wife quickly got down and let the husband ride on the donkey. Further on the way home, they met an old Lady. She commented, "How can the man ride on the donkey but let the wife walk. He is no gentleman." The husband thus quickly asked the wife to join him on the donkey. Then, they met a young man. He commented, "Poor donkey, how can you hold up the weight of two persons. They are cruel to you." Hearing that, the husband and wife immediately climbed down from the donkey and carried it on their shoulders. It seems to be the only choice left. Later, on a narrow bridge, the donkey was frightened and struggled. They lost their balance and fell into the river. You can never have everyone praise you, nor will everyone condemn you. Never in the past, not at present, and never will be in the future. Thus, do not be too bothered by others words if our conscience is clear..

["Daddy, I'm sorry about your truck." Then he asked, "but when are my fingers going to grow back?" The father went home and committed suicide. Think about this story the next time someone steps on your feet or you wish to take revenge. Think first before you lose your patience with someone you love. Trucks can be repaired.. Broken bones and hurt feelings often can't. Too often we fail to recognize the difference between the person and the performance. We forget that forgiveness is greater than revenge. People make mistakes. We are allowed to make mistakes. But the actions we take while in a rage will haunt us forever.

["Good Life starts only when you stop wanting a better One" " Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away "

Have a nice and MEANINGFUL day!
Thank you again for finishing reading the article!
All words are easy to say, but hard to act. However, is good to know :)

Wedding Dinner On 21/06/08

We have been invited to a wedding dinner 1 month before the date from my 'gu jie' (mother in law's father's sister's daughter-I think should be correct :p) from subang, her daughter is getting married.

1 week before the wedding, my gradma was asking me, my husband & mother in law whether we have dinner wear or not? She was so worried and keep on saying this is a big dinner, all our relative from far (Canada, Australia, US) & near is coming, you all must look good!!! Mmm.. I wonder how good is good, so went in my room and took some of my & my husband clothing for approval, there it goes... No... No... No... Maybe... then finally yes! phooi... there goes my mountain of cloths on the bed!

Ok, finally on the day it self my daughter woke up from her nap at 6pm, dinner is at 7pm. Have to feed her some rice(took me half an hour), bath her, dress her up nicely, get all her needs in the baby bag.... Look at the clock! 7pm! My husband is ready, my grandma in the room getting dressed, and I'm still with a short and a T-shirt~ @_@

Took a quick bath, dressed up, haha 10 minutes that was fast! Oh dear here comes the make up! I think it was about 6 months I've never put in makeup! Everything went good, but I was just having a little problem with the liquid eyeliner! My hand can't stop shivering!! Took a deep breath, and did it again.. Still the same wipe it off. Let's do it all over again! In a sudden, this article I read from the magazine pop up, if you are having problem drawing line on you face (eyeliner, lip liner, eye brown), just open your mouth! Everything will go as smooth as you wanted! Mmm... OK I thought, let me give it a try! Took me less the 1 minute! Haha! There it goes a nice line on my eye which how I wanted it to be!

Finally got on the car, then my grandma ask 'did you bring the ‘Angpow’? Oh No! Me shouted! Have not! My Husband ran inside the house to take it!

OK, finally we are on the way. Reach the hotel before 8pm. There goes my grandma & mother in law, chit chatting in the hall when cocktail are served. Well, my daughter of course like the environment, too happy running around. Me? Chasing her like I never did exercise before! Haha!

The dinner got started at 8.45pm, the groom & bridge had a grand entrance on the red carpet with all the mist effect. My daughter sat on my husband shoulder, her face look so amazed! What is happening (1st time in wedding dinner)? Then came the food presentation. The food was very nice & also the video & photo clip shown on the screen. I enjoy myself as well as my daughter & husband, no need to mention my grandma & Mother IL, too much to chat :)

Reach home at 12am, my daughter? Thought should be sleeping rite? She only slept at 1.30am, maybe she's too excited what has happen today.

The Button On our key board 'Print Screen'

Have you ever bother about the button on your keyboard 'Print Screen'? Yeah, it is quite a useful button. It copies anything that is now currently shown on your screen.

Have you ever think of that you do not want to show out other's information display on your PC? Such as the open windows or icons on your desktop? Maybe you would press 'Print Screen' and paste it in a drawing pad and cut out some unnecessary parts.

When I was in college, around 8 years back. My lecturer actually brought up this question and no body seems to know the answer? Or no body actually bothers about it? There is a way where you could only 'Print Screen' the window that is currently active, which will not copy any of your background.

Simple! Only if you would know.
Just hold on the Alt button and press 'Print Screen'. Done!
You’ll get what people only need to be seen!

Hah! Impress me when my lecturer told us the answer, which I would never forget.

Hiccups, STOP!

Have you ever been in a situation where you are having non-stop hiccups?

Irritating! when you tried to do anything to stop it, such as drinking a large amount of water, stop breathing for few seconds. Mmm.. These solutions are common to hear, but it does not always work.

One day when I was having hiccups when I was driving out with my mom, she taught me a very good solution! Which I also did experience it many times, and it works every time! I think it is really incredible, even tough it sounds a little ridiculous.

Now! This is the tip. Take a sip of drinking water swallow it slowly, and repeat it 7 times. Sometimes, your hiccups will stop even before your 7th sip. Simple right? Somehow my husband say's, na.. impossible.. anyway, wait till he try out
