Birthdays are for kids actually

On our way back from 1U yesterday, my eldest child could not help from smiling at me.. When I asked her why, she said that it was nothing.. Actually I knew what had happened earlier on when me & her Tuk Mi was waiting for them at the Home Fix shop. However, I hate to spoil the fun. Thus, I pretended not to tell her that I know what was on her mind..

It’s good that Arissa was able to keep the secret until today’s morning. We all know la how excited kids can be with birthdays even though it was not theirs!

Yeah! I smelt something fishy about them ( hubby + Arissa) being late to meet us at Home Fix. They said they were only going to drop by at the Sticky candy shop for a short while. So me & my MIL waited for them at Home Fix. But when a few minutes turned to be longer than expected, my mind suddenly think that they were up to something… Well, it’s not hard to conclude that it had to be something related to my birthday as today is my birthday…

And this morning, I could see how excited Arissa was when she gave me my birthday card. Little Aisyah gave the small silver box present. She was too young to understand what birthday is all about.Thus she was all curious with what was on this morning at the dining table. Even when Arissa was saying good bye to me this morning, I can still see her happiness about birthday!!! I bet if there was a birthday cake this morning, she would be the one who wanted to blow all the candles!

And as usual, my hubby the Mr. Planner had done it again . The birthday gift was thoughtfully choosen and bought by him. Of course Arissa had been explained reasonably on why that present was selected. This I presumed la… Since I just bought a new low-key brand car, it had crossed my mind to get a new key chain that was practical to use ie wont easily leave a stratch on my car..

So I never thought that they will get for me a glow-in-the-dark mentol shaped key chain as my 36th birthday present. I can imagine how easy it will be to find my car keys in the dark after these!!!

Missing Singapore

Yeah! here i am missing my Singapore vacation cum balik kampung also for me & my family. Last Dec 2010 , me & my family vacationed down south for a good old 7 days .Before & after Christmas.

Why balik kampung?  Because my MIL was born & raised in Singapore. And all the siblings & relatives are still living in Singapore. Plus also my FIL's relatives. So you can imagine why we need to spend like a week and nothing less than that! Our itinery was like this: Daylight - touring & Night - visiting relatives

And yeah, having a relatives there does help to easen our trip budget. We saved a lot on accomodation as we stayed in my MIL's sister house . clock is showing it's almost 5.15 pm now..Happy Chinese New Year everyoone..

p/s: i'll continue this wonderful singapore trip in my next posting.. Sentosa is marvelous!

The Three Ladies in My Live

Who welcomes you back home after a long day at work everyday?

In my case it definitely will be my MIL, my 5 year old girl( come August 15th , 2011 she will be 6 years old ) and my  18 months old baby girl. And no matter how tired I am  feeling or  how I'm in no mood to chit chat long, I just know that I have to layan them.  By this I'm not implying negative meanings for I know talking to them is something I have to do each time  i come back from work.

Why? Because if I were in their shoes, I too would be like them. Imagine being at home for the whole day eventhough my MIL do sometimes go out with her ever loyal kaki-jalan cum cousin and that my eldest daughter goes to school in the morning. But  who will they get to talk about things that happened to them during the day when  me & hubby are out working ?None right.

Which is why i said earlier that i owe it to them to be that listening partner. And one thing that I notice is that how happy they are  whenever i show interest in them..Actually most of the time, i don't need to be the 1st person to initiate it.

So I will be hearing shouts of my names from my two lovely girls the minute I stand in front of our house gate waiting for them to open it for me. Or I hear it the when they see me walking towards them who will be standing in front of the gate while their granny is busy tending to her cactus.

And yes Aisyah can say mama! and with other words too!
