'Hubby' Kisses 'My' Butt !

What's this? Why talking something so privacy here? Are you thinking something naughty? Hahaha........ don't be mistaken from the title I wrote here!

This was what happened! Hubby's car kisses My car's butt !

Actually it was all my fault! I didn't pay attention while reversing my car this morning. Hubby used to park his car across the road right in front of my house. I was going to take my girl to school at 7:15am just now. My son woke up at that time and he ran towards the entrance calling me. Me, so adore the little boy, and kept waving to my boy while reversing my car. By the time I heard the beep from the sensor, there was already a "bang" !

I told hubby the 'good news' once he woke up. He could say nothing but just shoke his head. Careless me, have to spend extra on repairing car again! *sigh*

Earth Hour 2009 Campaign

I'm here to remind everyone about the Earth Hour campaign tomorrow, 28 March 2009! Will you support and practise it? Actually, do you know about it? Just switch off the lights at your place from 8:30pm-9:30pm to show your love and care to the Earth. Yes, as simple as that to stop global warming. Of course, we should try to avoid using other electrical appliances at that hour. We can have some home activities fun with family members like telling ghost stories, singing, playing piano, eating, .......etc. We better don't smoke or drive the car as this pollutes the environment too.

There are many comments about this campaign. Some support it, but some protest it. One of my friend thinks that this kind of campaign is nonsense. In his opinion, the authority should impose high tax for those companies which cause enviroment hazzard. The money obtained should be used to educate the people about going green and ways to stop pollution. Yes, he is right too. We should practise the environment friendly acts everyday and not just an hour in a year! I am so naive and haven't thought of it.

Anyway, I will still support the campaign if I can. I will be in my parent-in -law's house and I'm not sure whether they will practise or not. No matter how, if it doesn't harm anyone or anything, just do your little part to save the Earth and us!

Car DVD Player As Companion While Travelling

I came back from Cameron Highlands yesterday after a night stay over there. It was mainly planned for the kids on this short term school holidays. My in-laws were joining us too as we had a steamboat gathering up there. It was kind of different along the journey if compared to last time. The kids enjoyed themselves so much on their father's new car DVD player. It was an economical system with only a receiver, a remote control and a small screen which cost less than a thousand altogether. This is a trendy style among the youngsters. I am just worried that this habit may hurt the kids' eyes.

My mother-in-law disagreed with the idea of having such lifestyle in a car! She keeps warning his dearest son not to watch DVD while driving. Hubby may not be able to pay full attention while driving and this is quite dangerous too. I feel the same too. I would not object if the system comes with GPS device. That is more useful for a man without direction sense like him. Too bad, his current car DVD player doesn't contain one.

Hubby is going to be addicted in it already. He told me that he was looking for some quality car speakers with good sound surround too. Hope he won't spend too much on that. We have to save up more for our new house. Anyway, car DVD player plays a role as good companion when hubby travels alone outstations, so that he won't fall asleep when driving.

Ladypo - Feminine Hygiene Care

My beautician has encouraged me to step forward in carrying the vaginal test. The purpose of the test is to identify any harmful vaginal microorganism in each woman's vaginal. I am very sure there are of course a lot of bacterias in our vaginal, but I was quite worried to get to know more. Eventually, I did the test last Saturday.

To my shocking amazed, I was told to have quite a serious condition. I couldn't breath as I listened more. I was so scared and seemed to be hard to accept the fact. Well, I didn't blame the lab assistant as she was responsible in telling me the truth. From the computerised analysis, I was found infected with candida, blood clogs and even dark blood clogs! The candida infection may cause itchiness and inflammation. The main cause of getting it is, either we often sits on the toilet seat in public toilet or due to the habit of washing panties together with other clothings. In the mean time, the dark blood clogs may cause hysteromyoma and tumour if the size increases. My body started to shiver when I heard this.

My beautician and friend tried to calm me down. They consoled me not to think much as there is still something there to prevent. To know earlier is better than not knowing it at all. At least, there is still hope for all women who have the same problem like me. I was then introduced of this, Ladypo product. This feminine hygiene care product was brought in by one of Malaysia's famous actress. Do check out the website link attached. Women shall not feel shy if there is any problem inside them. We should be brave to face it and treat it. It is the right of all women to protect their lives!

I accepted the treatment. I shall go for the second test next month to observe my health improvement.

What Is Your Main Purpose To Pursue Study?

I am a bit mad and disappointed with what my parents said this afternoon. Till today only I understand how they look at me. They didn't say it harsh but instead in a more joking manner. They mentioned out that they regret to afford me till university as I have wasted their money for not being employed now.

I am really confused of the purpose to pursue study till higher level. All the time I thought that the more we study, it helps to shape up a knowledgeable and reasonable mind in a person. Despite that, my parents think that a degree certificate is very important for someone's future in work. The degree holder should work according to his subject field and earn more money. What for waste money if not doing in that field after completing study? And somemore being a home maker after marriage like me now!

I was frustrated. I answered back that I'd love to go back to work if not because of my kids. I rather stay in socialise with more friends than staying at home, yelling away while parenting. Furthermore, I'm considered 'working' without pay! Why? Why are my parents' thinking so conservative? Things which they experience are just too little.

Am I really so free and nothing to do while at home? If so, why can't I find time sitting down reading some magazines and newspapers? Not even to the toilets!! Ridiculous!

So, what is your opinion of the main purpose to pursue study?

Unconfident In Foreign Maids

There are more and more serious cases about foreign maids hurting their bosses and mistresses. The trembling recent news about the vicious attack of a maid to her lady boss. That was not just a minor harming but was considered an attempt murder case. The news can be read from here.

Today, I'm very certain that I'm not going to take any Indonesian maid when I move to my new house. I rather spend money for having maid-on-call. The maid just needs to come in by appointment and work for few hours and then leave the house. Isn't it better not to have extra burden at home? I do not need to worry the kids when I'm out, and I can save up for the maid's expenses like food and clothing.

Life will be more peaceful and healthy without a maid at home. Of course, there is no doubt we still need help on house cleaning some time.

Neways International Health Products

I am a little bit fear with news around about human nowadays being attacked by cancer so easily. The worst to it is, there are more and more cancer patients ranged from the young generations. This makes me so worry about my family and own kids.

This is what I do now......replacing home daily use products to Neways health products to minimize the expose of us to the harmful chemical substances.

I almost changed all my skincare products, hair shampoo and conditioner, toothpaste, laundry wash and some of the cosmetic. There are proved shown that 25% causes of cancer come from the chemical substance like, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES), Fluoride, Animal Fat (Tallow), Aluminium, Collagen, Kaolin, Lanolin, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, Artificial Colouring and Artificial Fragrances. Users are convinced to be safe from all these dangerous chemical substances from Neways products. Most of these health products are edible too. You won't die or poisoned even though you accidentally swallow the ingredients.

To me, health is the most important thing in life. Without health, there will never be prosperity and happiness! Agree?

Signature Kitchen Showroom In Ipoh

It was the first time I stepped into Signature Kitchen Showroom located at Ipoh Garden South. I still can't figure out how to design my new house. My mind is completely blank. This red kitchen cabinets really attracted me.

The design looks so modern with sharp colour. I haven't thought that it could be so nice for a kitchen at home.

Looks simple but elegant.

This can be done if you own a bungalow. This design needs more space.

Signature Kitchen offers free design for potential customers. This is such a great value to me. Anyway, this company is known of its pricey products. I am not certain of whether to hand them my house layout for them to design. But, why not huh? Since it is free. Might as why get some idea out from them. I shall peek through other companies' showrooms before making any decision.

Happy Valentine's Day

HUG & KISSES from MummyInVain

Monday, February 9

Pray For Peace

The Chinese celebrate Chap Goh Meh as Valentine's Day in their culture. I didn't celebrate as I follow the western style. Well, it is somehow not much special to a married woman with children now. Just another reason for a special (in term of 'price') dinner.

Due to the world's economic downturn and the unstable political status in Perak, I guess this coming Valentine's Day would be a quiet one. I have told hubby not to buy anything for me and so do I, to save up our money. This would be a good news to him too .... ;p

I pray for peace in our living area. I really don't hope to hear any fighting or anyone get hurt all because of the greed among politicians. There are still some protestants around in town, and policemen are everywhere to keep them under control. Hope that they find a solution as soon as possible. I don't want the government to announce Perak in an emergency status one day like Bangkok last time. This may cause a lot of trouble to the residence.

Happy Chap Goh Meh !

Shall I Continue My Piano Lesson?

Human always has a confused mind. We can't really remain in the current status for long. When we already have something, we would then think of another thing. Human will always not satisfied with what they have. Like me, I have been a SAHM for almost 10 months. I do enjoy it sometimes, but it also means that I don't have my own financial status. I feel like getting back to work, but must be a flexible job as I still need to take care of the kids.

I have found a piano school nearby my house here recently. I was told that the school is offering adult piano lessons. I am considering whether to further continue my piano skill since I had stopped at Grade 5 when I was 14 years old. I can then take around 4 years to complete Grade 8 and receive a certificate. I shall then be eligible to teach students. Frankly speaking, I don't have much confidence in myself. I am not quite sure whether I can persist my dream or not though my interest on it is not that high. My purpose is just to keep myself skillful to earn a living. I am worried that my parents and hubby would think that I am wasting my time and money.

Well, if really I were to play piano again, I guess I need some time to catch up the basic and soften my fingers. Not easy though.

Review On All's Well Ends Well 2009

I vowed to watch "All's Well End's Well 2009" during Chinese New Year. Sounds a bit too serious huh! :p This is one of the ever popular comedy which I miss so much. I can still remember the entertaining "1992's All's Well End's Well" starring Leslie Cheung and Stephen Chow. Anyway, both of these movie don't carry the same content and characters. Watching this funny movie during the Chinese New Year brings me feel the festive mood.

General Sypnosis :-

Kei's (Ronald Cheng) eldest sister Sandra (Sandra Ng) is a hot-tempered magazine editor and her temperament has left her single all this while. One of the family rules is that none of the siblings could get married before their eldest sister. Kei seeks help from the famous Casanova, Koo Chai (Louis Koo), to pretend to court his eldest sister and lure her into the mood of love. With Sandra falling in love with Koo Chai, he in turn falls in love with another girl, Mun.

It is quite an insane and silly movie, especially when Sandra Ng appears in the role. I was amused and almost burst laughing into tears when I saw her rough and unpleasant gestures. I guess, if I were a man, I would not have her as my life partner......haha!

A Place Which Brings Good Fortune

The Chinese New Year holidays were quite occupied to me. We had family and relative gatherings as usual. We even had dinner in the restaurant with family. On the third day of the festive season, hubby, the kids and I went to Lenggong with his friends for river fish lunch. That was a famous place in a small village. Too bad, I had forgotten to snap some photos because too busy with the food. Hehehee.....

After lunch, we proceeded further away before reaching Gerik, to a famous Thai temple. This temple is well-known of its responses in prayers. That's what I heard. I'm not sure whether you have heard of that. I just can't tell its exact location as I'm not so familiar with the route.

Most of the people pray for their dream. Well, I didn't pray for the perfect breast augmentation uk though I hope so, but pray that my kids would be released from skin problem suffering forever. If I would like an effective plastic surgery, I wouldn't doubt but go for Mya Cosmetic Surgery as it is famous of its experienced surgeons and number of successful cases. I just need to go through a simple and safe procedure under quick recovery. Anyway, I really hope for my kids' health in the first place.

May we all be blessed !

May this car brings luck to the driver and passengers !

Believe it or not! This Goddess blessed tree may bring good fortune to you. How? And, what were these people doing there? They were trying their luck by rubbing on the tree trunk. Rub till you see the digits. Most of the people who bought the numbers had indeed made some money from it!!! We didn't try, as we didn't believe it at first. If we happen to visit again, I'm going to try my luck then.

Most Expensive Pair Of Shoes In Life

When I heard someone who spent more than hundred to buy a pair of shoes, I will always tell myself that I won't do that. I believe that I would rather spend on clothings than just a pair of shoes, as it will wear off very fast. But then, I have done something which is right against my principle last Friday.

RM125 after 10% discount !

I was desperately looking for a pump for the coming Chinese New Year. I thought one pair would be definitely more than enough.

Before stepping out of the shop, I spotted another pair on the shelf. The owner told me that they have put this pair of clog sandal under promotion.

Extra RM62 spent on the same day!

I was a bit regret after that, because this clog like sandal is not good to wear at all. I think it won't last long too. Either it wears off quickly or being dumped by me in the trash bin! That's called "women" !!!

Pasta Pot Arrived

Based on my earlier post about my victory in receiving a pasta pot for free, it has arrived at my doorstep yesterday morning. It is aluminium inset base, and it can cook 500g of pasta each time.

This pot has a lock-in draining lid, and that's why it has many tiny holes on top. It is kind of useful as it can be used for cooking porridge too. Really appreciate my friend, Sue Sue for her gift. It seems like my early housewarming gift.....hehe....

I have to find out more recipes for spaghetti, penne and macaroni. They are my girl's favourite. Where else? Details can be found in Sue Sue's cooking blog then. She is a great cook.

Sad And Disappointed

I attended my hubby's pub's grand opening event last night. It was raining cats and dogs. I was somehow seduced by the varieties of buffet food.

Actually I don't feel much fun to go to these kind of happening places nowadays. Maybe I'm kind of old already. Well, I was not quite happy with hubby that night.

It may not be good to grumble or talk bad about hubby here. I just want a place to rant out, and I'm always speechless when confronting him. Once he finished his food, he left me with my ex-colleagues till he didn't have a sense of my existence. When I complained to him, he just made excuse that he doesn't familiar with my friends. When seeing other couples where the husband took care of his wife dearly, I could feel the sourness pouring deep into my heart. Where was he then? He was accompanying his friends instead. I was fed up. I couldn't stay there any longer. I commented this after few similar cases.

I'm just a very simple woman. I still thirst for love and care. I do miss my teenage life where I was always protected and loved by guys who admired me. *grinned* No more those life anymore! I just have my kids in my life now. I can't receive much love from hubby anymore. I can only give my love to my lovely children now.

I Have Won A Pasta Pot !! Yipee!

I am so so lucky! I am so so happy! I am so so excited! I am so so grateful to my sponsor, Sue Sue who has released her love as my New Year gift! Yup, I have won myself a pasta pot worth RM180 from her! Do check out how I was picked from her list. My luck was given all because of this little boy, Ee Thern. He has chosen me out of the long dreaded list.

Sue Sue has requested me for my mailing address, and I'll soon be receiving my present next week. I love this gift as I can cook all kinds of pasta for my kids even though I still don't know how to use. They love to eat especially spagetthi. I wonder I can use it just like the way of an usual pot.

Will soon publish another update post once I receive my surprise.
