    Alone For A Day

    Today i am having my off day.  Its just yesterday i have a hertic ride with my kids from Jalan Bundusan, the time i get Chrissa from Luyang was already 5.50 pm and because its Friday i decided to go to 1Borneo just hang around there with my kids while waiting for my husband to go home at 7.00pm.

    Chrissa was behaving very good at first, sitting at the back seat with the seat belt on, i gave each on of them something to eat but unfortunately she doesnt like it.. well its just her excuse to sit in front.  I was driving in the at the Tuaran road when Sean recognise the road he wanted to go to my parent’s house near Tebobon, so both shouting...’mummy carry me!’, Chrissa shouting from the back, while Sean.. ‘mummy we go to Tebobon!’.. okay … i tried my best to calm them down.  When i come to a junction, i have to make a choice to 1Borneo or straight to Tebobon.  Sean.. please choose, ‘Ultraman and Power Ranger in 1Borneo or Tebobon’...guess what.. he chosed his grandparents over Power Ranger..  cool..

    We reached at my parent’s house at 6.30 it was tremendous jamm that area.. phew.. lucky we reach there safe and sound.  Almost time to go.. but nobody seems to bother… i can only hear.. ‘bye bye mummy’.. alright i am on my own.

    My husband waited for me and we went to take our dinner.. haven’t had dinner for a long time… glad to have the opportunity.

    I woke up at 8.30am.. the house are so in the mess.. i don’t know where to begin.  This is my only opportunity to clean the house but i also time for to relax…so i put my laundry in the washing machine, i managed to pay my car and credit card online… quick chat with papajoneh and jppmom on the YM.

    I got a called from somebody who wants to see my apartment.. oops haven’t clean up the house.. can you come back in the afternoon..lol.  I sweep, mop the floor, clean the kitchen, scrub the toilet bowl.. wash the bathroom.. wow!

    My phone rang again.. ‘we are here’.. okay i opened the door a guy and his beautiful wife..yes she is sure pretty..  so we talked about the price for awhile and after that we talk about ouselves.. lol.. we got into an agreement of the price and i need to check on the procedure.

    So its me again, alone, hungry..  i fried egg and sausages.. eat in front of the tv.. i dont allow my kids to do that… so siok.. after all my tiredness cleaning the house.. i deserve a nice sleep… zzzzzz.

    Husband came back from the office and we had dinner outside.  I am blessed because i have family who always be there to help me even only for a day or so but its really mean so much to me.  I have time to be on my own.. relaxing… grateful .. just being able to be alone even for a day.

    Learning Phonics

    Kindergartens are busy preparing their students to learn how to spell and write.. learning phonics to be exact.

    Sean is busy learning phonics, his new school will give new story books for every semester so they have to make sure the pupils can read the books before the next semester and so on.  They have extra classes for those need more attention.   I don’t mind having Sean to the extra class if he need to because it will be difficult if they can’t spell when they go to primary school next year.

    I can hear Sean practicing his phonics at home, i hope he can read soon.  He have been given books to read and more to come.. i guess its time to make rubber stamp of his name so its easier just use the stamp on his new books or his belonging so that it wont get mix up with others.

    Nowadays he like to type.. i will write in a piece of paper mostly all the superheroes.. and he will type it on the computer.. and if he wants to type new name… i will say out loud.. but i don’t say the letter, i say the sound.. instead of ‘P’,‘M’, i will say ‘Peh’, ‘Meh’..  this will not only make him recognize the letter but the sound of the letter.  I just hope he can spell and read, i might encourage him to blog.

    Event Planner Or Do It Yourself!

    Other than dreaming of having my own boutique, i love to be an Event Planner, especially for birthday and wedding. Starting from budget, the venue, theme, dress, makeup.. wow interesting.. and stressful at the same time.. no doubt about it.. talk about make customer’s satisfaction.

    I have two wedding invitations this coming May.. i have promised my best friend to help her at his brother’s wedding, to put makeup for the flower girls.. ah easy weesy.. lol.. and the other invitation are from my colleague and have asked me to do her makeup.. but i have not agreed, i have not done bride makeup for a year.. i have no confident yet..need to practice my skills.

    My friend a.k.a the future bride are going to be busy planning and arranging for the ‘Big Day’.. to make it less stressful it would be easier to let the Event Planner do it but of course you need big budget on that.  On the other hand, if you have trusted friends or family, just delegate them with job and let them carry their duties, save cost.   I have just agreed to do gift box for 500pax..lol.. i know i will find somebody to help me.

    So if you are ready to get married and want to make it a real ..perfect ‘big day’.. hire a Wedding/Event Planner but if you love having friends and family to make a happy ..simple ‘big day’... do it yourself.
