Book number #2

I am in the middle of reading another book. Yes. Slowly but surely, I'm reading the books that was bought perhaps years ago.

As I mentioned in a previous entry, The Kite Runner was fabulous.. (and so was the movie).. cried loads, of course.

And now I am reading Eat. Pray. Love (again, finally!!!) . I'm only half way through but I can't help but wonder if all Liz's in the world have conversations with themselves in their head.. because I certainly do..

CBF (that's Chief Baker Fairy) asked me a couple of days ago if I had read it, and I said no.. but I have it.. and so here I am reading it.. It's like reading a a transcript of what goes on in this streaked head of mine. I am still on the first part of the book, Italy.. and she's making me hungry for pizza..and take up Italian language so I can do tandem conversation exchange with Italian men...

But most importantly, it reminded me of the great times I had while I was there, years ago.. walking hand in hand, talking, watching the countless fontanas, taking beautiful pictures and eating all those wonderful gelatos.

Yooo Hoooo... Where are you?

I'm losing my mind..

Where's that thing that makes my cheek glow? My lips moist and plump..? My eyes sparkle..?

It's all gone missing..

Where are you my dear?

Where's my freaking make up pouch???????!!!!!

Happy Birthday Sayang

Little Ni-Mu is 3!!! Threeeeeeee!! Wheeeee!!!

Jumping up and down the trampoline.

Running around the obstacle course game.

Blowing her candles.

Eating the icing off the Princess cake.

Jumping up and down the trampoline.

Showing off her sticker tattoos.

I am so proud of her, I can burst! And I love her so much.
And you know what else 23rd November marks?
My 3rd year of motherhood. I wouldn't trade it for anything else..

Life's a bitch


There are times when you just want to scream but can't.. Throw things, but you stop yourself, because you know you're the one who has to clean it up, so you stop yourself. And you ask yourself over and over again why you feel the way you do? Feeling like your chest is going to explode because you just don't know what to do... Above all, you feel invisible.. that even if you scream from the top of your lungs, no one can hear you.. or worse, no one wants to hear you..

Of course, the kitchen is in a mess, the laundry bag is full, there's still water leaking in the guest toilet .. and there's no room for you on the sofa.

I. Am. You.

My Merry Life

My Ni-Mu, who's going to be three in a couple of weeks makes a lot of logic with her toddler talk, than most adults. It's no wonder she's now my confidante.

Yesterday, when I introduced her to a dear friend who's leaving her past behind to start a fresh new life continents away, I said, "This is aunty Yants, she's getting married .. Do you know what getting married is?"


It's like a Merry Go Round..

Brilliant logic. My Child is a genius. It's very much like a Merry Go Round, no? You go round and round in a circle with plenty of ups and downs thrown in for good measure.

In the still of the night..

Hang on, help is on the way, stay strong
Hold your own, know your name and go your own way
And everything will be fine..

Croons Jason Mraz, as I stare into the darkness of the room.

So I channelled him, and in my mind we were sitting across each other, the room flickered with that lavender scented candle.

Why do we keep on paving over paradise? Because we’re only human, he said
Why do I have to go to the toilet so often? You have weak bladder, hon...
Can I have a hug? You don’t have to ask, hon..

I'm so tired.. Come rest with me, hon..

That wasn't so hard.. I should do this more often..

I think I'm in love with my iLuv, help!

Worthy of a note..

Please take note of the following -

1. If you’re the type that cries at weddings, or sensitive (tak tentu pasal) do NOT watch p.s I Love You, alone.

2. If you have lost faith in Tom Cruise, do watch Tropic Thunder. Tom, I never knew you had it in ya!

3. If you bump into someone who makes your skin crawl.. who then asks for your number, look them straight in their eyes and say, “No, I don’t want to give my number to you..” . It is surprisingly liberating! *Hurrah for me… I actually did this last week!*

4. Do sing and dance to Mamma Mia the movie. I am willing to go with anybody out there who has an extra ticket to the show. Will pay for it. For guys – I am delicious and will not disappoint as a date, no strings attached (Bonus!). For girls – I am delicious and am a hoot.. (not to be confused with hooters..)
