I'm so tired these few days when comes to afternoon in the office I feel like sleeping like this little girl. I drank 2 cups of coffee /day for the 3 days in a row, I normally take one cup per day but I can't help it or otherwise I will doze off. It's hard to have peaceful sleep at night and even in my sleep I could still hear the motorcycles and cars passing near our place. I've been on 'alert' since tuesday night, what happened was somebody came knocking our main door at about 10.30pm that night. I almost wanted to answer the knock but who wants to come over at that hour. If they knew my number, they surely call me before coming over. So I just let the person had his or her last knock on my door. If hubby is not around for days, I'll have to be the 'man' in the family. Safety is my 1st priority for them. I better pack my things, switch off this puter, go back and rest with my kids...

Short break with our babies

The age that I wish to go back to

Thanks Shirley for the tag. I've been doing some tags for the past few days, some funny questions but it's fun :-). So here's my age wish:-

I wish to go back to a much younger teenage age, like 14. Yup, we only spend like 7 years of teen ages but I would prefer number 14. Why? coz at this age I could only think about my studies and have so much fun with our choir members (Tanaki Youth). I can look forward more gathering especially Christmas. This is the time I could go on 'outstation' meaning, we (youth) out to bring Christmas Cheers house to house outside Penampang area..wow I can still remember how excited I was at that time of year! And also, this age, I fell in-love with my senior school mate haha...and another crush with a senior choir member LOL!! The so called 'Puppy Love' wasn't so bad though hehe..
But nothing can compare the joy and happiness that I have now with my beloved hubby, my 2 girls and adorable Isaac :-) I thank GOD for having them in my life!

Mama with her grands

Mama with grand daughter and great grandson

Happy Granny with her grand daughter, Deborah and great grand children

My cousin Deborah came home early this month for her summer holidays. Last saturday my girls and Isaac had the opportunity to meet their aunty again at our grandmother's place. Isaac as usual, nobody can touch or carry him. Only me, his daddy and the nanny can hold him but I hope his behaviour will change as he grows. Deborah is in her 6th years on Medicine in Kursk University, Russia and will be graduating March next year. How time flies, it's been 6 years ago after completing her SPM in St. Francis Convent and now soon to be a Doctor. Here is a picture taken at my granny's place. Grandma was delighted and happy to see her grandchildren and great grandchildren that day :-) I'm not sure if I will reach my age seeing my great grandchildren. God's will!

Cynthia and her aunty Debbie during lunch at Pizza Hut, 1Borneo, they look cute together ;-)

ABBAration for charity

'I have a dream, Dancing Queen, Mamma Mia, Waterloo...sounds familiar to you? Right, ABBA the ever most popular pop group in the 70s', from the awesome four Anni-Frid Lynqstad, Aqnetha Faltskoq, Benny Andersson and Bjorn Uvaeus. Music is part of my life since small and still am now haha..I mean seriously I just loved ABBA songs, thank goodness every now and then you still get the chance to hear their songs in Lite FM. I still have their cassettes I bought in my teenage years.
On friday last week, 18th July, our lady boss sponsored a table worth RM5000 for us to the Palliative Association fund raising dinner in Magellan Sutera Ballroom. 119 tables occupied that night with the highest rate of RM15,000 and the lowest RM2000 per table. It may sound unbelievable how people spend so much for this dinner because money is really a matter to everybody nowadays. But if you think it over, doing charity for a good cause is worth spending and God knows you're doing it sincerely and wanting the best out of it especially for the terminally sick and needy.

we arrived a little too early, 6.30pm..excited ;-)

I shed tears watching the 10 mins video clips of cancer stricken children, taking care of them and giving their fullest support to their families. And the hardest part for me was watching them fulfilling their last wishes. It took me several days to get over it.
Few paintings were auctioned that night and they managed to raise RM73,000.00 from 8 paintings. The highest painting auctioned was RM50,000.00, the bid started at RM10,000. Phew...'Money, money, money must be funny, in a rich men's world' ..

The RM50,000 worth of painting

As they served the last 2 dishes in the menu, the long awaited finally on stage..yup 'ABBAration' a group from 'Down Under' Australia hit out with their first song from the original ABBA, 'Dancing Queen'. Wow what can I say, not the original but the ballroom sure 'gegar' that night for 2 hours non-stop. The last 2 songs 'Thank you for the music' and 'I have a dream' were dedicated to patients at the palliative center. It was just great, good music for a good cause..I hope to attend next year's fund raising dinner..well if we're being sponsored again. But so far this was the 3rd time we're being sponsored.

ABBAration from the backdrop..I will post more pix of them soon

The paintings they are all beautiful, wish I could have one

Backdrop near the main entrance ;-)

I received this from my colleague, it's funny and thought I would share this here too :-)

I was testing the children in my Sunday school class to see if they understood the concept of getting to heaven. I asked them, 'If I sold my house and my car, had a big garage sale and gave all my money to the church, Would that get me into Heaven?' 'NO!' the children answered. 'If I cleaned the church every day, mowed the yard, and kept everything neat and tidy, would that get me into Heaven?' Again, the answer was, 'NO!'

By now I was starting to smile. Hey, this was fun! 'Well, then, if I was kind to animals and gave candy to all the children, and loved my husband, would that get me into Heaven?' I asked them again. Again, they all answered, 'NO!'
I was just bursting with pride for them. 'Well,' I continued, 'then how can I get into Heaven?' A five-year-old boy shouted out, 'YOU GOTTA BE DEAD.'

My little Isaac

Today I've had the most frightening moment in my life. I almost lost my little boy in a crowded shopping centre at Palm Square, Centrepoint. We were out this afternoon planning to get a new pair of sandals for Ruth and Isaac. It was crowded and of course its weekend and people busy buying things or maybe just window shopping and of course youngsters 'lepak' around the mall. We looked around for a suitable sandals for them, finally we found it at 'Bata'. Hubby was with him but we both could not remember how our little boy got himself free from the baby stroller. And there I was busy choosing the right sandals for Ruth and then for a moment we realised Isaac was not around. My heart beats fast as I try not to panic. I called up his name, and there were no response. So I told the girls to sit and stay inside the shop while hubby and I quickly went outside looking for him, I was running here and there like mad, in and out each shops and I was almost to tears calling his name. And suddenly I saw my husband and my little boy near the Starbucks outlet and he was crying. I couldnt stand it anymore, I ran towards them and hug my little boy. Hubby said he was with other kids playing the animal toys at nearby Starbucks. I couldnt say much after that, it was our fault too. I kissed him and carried him away from the crowd and I've promised to myself I wont let this thing happen again. We paid the sandals then went home. I really thank God for our son is safe and with us now. Thank you Lord.

The blog describe almost the whole things you want to know about the blogger, be it about children, work, happenings around her life, poems, cultures and a lot more. Oh yes, I've got to know more about Avail Beauty products from Mzaixe-space. Some of my colleagues are using this product but now I know there are more things than a sanitary pad :-)
One thing for sure, the foodie pictures are so tempting and it makes me hungry, don't you feel the same? The blogger posted a few things about Krishna Curry House for sure this is a famous place to savour the delicious curry fish head in town and with all the side dishes, hmm...it sure looks yummy to me!
I've always loved thoughts of the day and poems and I've posted a few in my own blog, the Morning Thoughts in mzaixe-space really inspired me to react each morning. It sends out a message that if we can positively control our morning thoughts the rest will be just fine. Okay, I've got the message now. I really need to be positive in the morning to start out a good day, I guess everybody needs that!

Carpe Diem

Carpe Diem from the Latin phrase 'Seize the day' used by Horace.
It was in 1988, while waiting for my Form 5 (S.P.M) result I had the opportunity working with this small company in nearby city centre. Being so fresh, I mean totally no working experience the company gave me about RM280.00 per month as an assistant clerk. That was my salary then! I was more than delighted getting only that much.
One morning while having our breakfast in a nearby coffee shop, I overheard my senior colleagues talking about a Big Sale going on in a shopping mall and they were planning to shop that afternoon. I got excited too thinking about the 50 - 70 % discount, who could resist..so we all left that afternoon. But the boss reminded us to be back by 2.30pm!
So many things to see and attractive discounts, and having some RM150 in my purse I've already decided to shop as much as I can. Time flies, and the only things I've gotten in my hand was a pair of shoe and a blouse. It was just a one day sale and I haven't done my shopping list. Guess what, I went ahead with the shopping till almost 4.30pm and took the bus and went home. The next day, I was sacked!
It was such a stupid idea but maybe being so young and naive, shopping on discounted things was the best and I just seize the day.

Anime Revo

Have you ever read comics from your computer, the internet? My colleague used to buy comics at any bookstore for her teenage sons. Imagine reading all your favourite comics online and get some reviews on any latest and up-coming anime books without going to the bookstore. For those who love reading comics or manga with Japanese characters on it, please look into this site Anime Revo. A sort of animation comics in different genres in it.

Like an E-Books, you will be able to follow and read stories by chapters posted under their Categories. With common animes exaggerated facial expressions with stories mainly focus on battles, war and physical competitions as in Naruto, Eyeshield and One Piece. I believe most postings done here mainly fit into the teenage category.
Animes these days are commonly use in movies, TV network, adverts and etc. Anime Revo gives you an insight about anime comics for reading and entertainment pleasure.
