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
