The show started


Last week was the opening night for the High School Musical on stage here in our area where my eldest daughter is playing the lead role of Gabriella, it was a nerve wrecking night knowing that it is her first time to join a stage musicale ,, the event was jam packed and the anticipation, stress and excitement were felt during that night ,, We were all relieved to see her go through here lines and songs with ease .
It was a successful night and I am proud of my chookies girl!!!!!!

It was a long process from the audition through the rehearsal ,, 2 times a week for 5 months from 7pm to 10 pm,,, and with all the effort and the hard work , it has paved off.. all the late nights and stress my daughter suffered from acne ,, and we had to act fast and found a solution,, went through all the best acne treatments and found the best one to control her break outs ,, don't want her to be acne faced while shes doing the show..

Anyway,, my hubby and I decided not to watch any of her rehearsals ,, we just want surprises during the show and boy we were surprised with my girl ,, knowing that she have no formal singing training,, we know that she is a dancer and an actress but not a singer ,, so it good to know that she can do them all ...

So she still have 3 more shows to go and then the hard work is done ....

Update on the building

An update on our house.....

yeahhh,, they already started doing the roofing this week ,,, construction is moving again and even in a steady slow phase ,, I am getting excited about it ,, seeing things being done ,,, my dearest handy hubby has finished putting up all the cladding in the house ,, with a help of a carpenter friend ,, it took them 3 days to finished it and I love the way it looks ...
Tuesday when they started doing the veranda , actually doing the decking all around the house and for sure it will take weeks for it to finished ...
The plumber was there too to dig up some stuff and put some pipes ,, ahhh lots of happening these week and hopefully things would move quickly ...



All I do is check online finding some designs and inspirations ,, I'll start with the kitchen first ,, tile splashback or glass???? my 1st dilemma ,, what colour scheme in the kitchen , I was also looking at Moen kitchen faucets and finding some nice style that I like ,, so what ever I just file all the ideas / pictures I have so my hubby and I can have a look, discuss and decide which one is better ...
So yeah ,, juts keeping my fingers crossed that we can be finished by December ,,, wanted to spend first Christmas there ....



Back on my Wii Fit again

This week I am back to my Wii Fit , a 30 minute exercise on the Wii fit is good enough for me at the moment ,, I'm still getting hang of it again after having a sedentary lifestyle for a year, I might not be the buff, athletic, exercise loving person but I am trying my best to get fit ,, I found a motivation again to do exercises, right now I still have a muscle pain from doing all the lounges and toning , I'm just doing it slowly ,, then when I'm all pumped up ,, I might go for a walk ,, since the weather is warming up here in Oz ,, I've been seeing those mbt shoes in the shops ,, the shoes with a curved sole that is designed for walking ,, hmm I might look at it and try it on and see if it 's comfortable ...
But for now ,, I'll enjoy my Wii Fit ,, since it is school holiday and the Zumba session is not on for 2 weeks..... anyway,, my kids love seeing me stretched my muscles and they also hang around and do so exercising .... good for me ,, good for them.....

Time to loose

Ahhh,,, lovely warm day ,, its been a week now and and weather is perfectly warming up ,, Time to pack away bulky winter jackets and out with the Spring clothes .. Seeing the nice clothes at the shop makes me get motivated to loose my jelly belly ... yup ,, a wobbly one too.. I am doing Zumba once a week and I love it,, 1 hour of intense dancing and I was really sweating it out,, but once a week is not enough ,, how about phentermine no prescription ??? or just stick to a healthy diet,,, I was able to make loose weight last year before I went overseas,, I was motivated at that time,,,but this time,, I have to get going and start exercising again..... I must I must .....
OK , next week I will hop on my Wii fit and will do toning exercises again,, I'll be home for 2 weeks because I will be a school holiday ,, So wish me luck....

Bad day

It s been 5 months now since my hubby's car is in the mechanic shop to be fixed,, hubby's car is such a head ache.. Hubby is so angry about this car that whenever I mention his car he would have a head ache... So from time to time I have to drop off hubby to work , and one unfortunate morning ,, hubby was driving my car and wasn't aware that it was a school zone ,,, went past the school and lo and behold a policeman,an with using those stuff radar detectors , then stopped us,, hubby was surprised and even ask "ME???""" yes you !!!! the police blurted out .. and I told hubby that it is a school area ,, that why ........





A wopping 270 dollar fine and a demrit point for hubby ,, what a day it was.!!!!

Face


Yessss... my big forty is coming up..... I'm not quite sure how to react ... should I be Happy or should I be worried????? the peak of my life .. is it really???? I really juts don't know what to expect ....


Here I am hiding behind a mask ... am I hiding something nasty .. hmmmm,,, wrinkles?? sun spots, pimples, deformity on and on and on ..
I do need an anti wrinkle serum that will really work , a facial sun cream that will block the nasty UV rays ...

I know .. I know.. I heard about loving yourself saying..... I do love ME and that is why I do want to look good not for myself but for my loved ones...


Ok the mask can go and I can reveal the face of 40 (soon......)

Stressed out

My eldest daughter is on a High School Musical on stage and playing the role of Gabriella in our local district of MacArthur , the opening night is on Friday and nerves are getting high,,, they all been working hard for almost 5 months now and I juts hope that everything will turn up well..

My daughter attends the rehearsal 2 times a week from 7-10 pm and her immune system is getting low,, with lack of sleep ,, school , work she is having a flue like symptoms,, even the best vitamin c serum wont help , she is all stressed out and with the show commencing soon ,, she s feeling all the pressure , shes got 10 shows all up and too much on hr shoulders...
I just hope that she can cope up with it and will never crumble with all the circumstances...

Warm Spring

Ahh this is what I call a gorgeous day ..... Spring with a temperature of 22C ahhhh nice and warm,, I can wear shirts already and feeling the hot already ,, so for sure it is going to be a scorching summer this year...

I reckon beach bums are out already and soaking the heat at the beaches around Oz ,, those buff men and women who are ready to display their physique are itching to go out,,, hmm could they be taking hgh cream ?? anyway, all I can say is good on them,, if they have have it flaunt it!!!! I know I can never be too courageous to show off my body ,, I guess I have too much hang ups with it ,, trying my best to be fit and struggling to eat well.
Anyway ,, I will surely love summer .. I always love summer !!! Sun, Fun, BBQ, Christmas ,Holiday ... Best time of the year for us here in Oz...

Dressing up

September is moving fast and I am already seeing some spooky stuff displayed at the shops,,, Yess,, Halloween is fast approaching , my kids love to dress up during this event above all they are so excited to go on trick or treating and getting all the lollies and stuff ,, seeing their faces light up as they receive the treats are worth seeing ...
Well this year we are going to our old neighbourhood and walk around the are and do trick or treating .
I was looking at these adorable costumes for kids and I really like these cute outfits for toddlers ahhh they are so cute .. just wannna share it with you guys and for sure you will also fall in love with them..












Ahh but for sure my lil kiddos will love these characters as their halloween costumes ,, not spooky but the usual Disney Princess for my lil possum and Iron Man for my lil man



I was browsing at some adult costumes too and I 've seen some funny and weird halloween costumes ,,, just don't know if I 'll be brave enough to wear them ,, I would just be a chaperon for the kids and for sure I'm the one who is going to hold all the pumpkin bags for them .. Yupp,, it will be a good fun but I will surely hide some of the candies and sweets because they will just eat them in one go ,, so have to save some for later ,,, ahhh is it me getting excited here ????

1st excursion

It was my lil girls 1st school excursion today ,, She was so excited this morning and even woke up without any whinging and procrastination... She is too hard to wake up in the morning , but today it was different story ,, ahhh I hope that its like this every morning ,, stress free morning....
Took a shower ,, breakfast and even I was rushing I still squeezed time to do her hair ,, just an easy double twist on top ,, I love doing her hair every morning ,, always tied up or juts tidy ,, never leave them hanging down,, they have a note from school about kids who have nits or lice , that is why I always check her hair and keep them up everyday ,, dont want those nasties to end up on her beautiful long hair .... Anyway,, I also have my boy up early and got ready...
Off we went to school at 8 am, all the Kindergarten kids were gathered up and off they wen t to the big bus,,, my brave lil girl just waved bye bye and was happy siting there.. I was waving non stop to her and blowing kisses ,, its her 1st time to be away that far from us and it was a concern feeling me ,, but I know that everything will be fine ,, it must be the separation anxiety on my part ... ahhh my lil girl is growing up ...
So at home ,, I kept my mind occupied by doing stuff online,, paying bills by net baking ,, filing papers , reading some brochures on life insurance quotes , purging some stuff in my home office and checking my emails ,,, I was busy doing stuff when I looked at the time ,,, whooaa it was quick almost 3 pm and I needed to go to school and pick the kids up , thinking the bus must be there already ,, went o school and picked up my boy and waited for half an hour for the bus to arrive...Alas,,,, the kids are back and with full of stories and excitement , the tired lil girl settled and had a quick snack and a quiet night .....

Getting busy with nails





I am into nail art at moment,, I started 6 months ago with just 2 nail polishes ,, but as my obsession grew, I started to add few more and then I think I lost count of all my nail polishes, I love doing it and as I practice some intricate designs ,, my hubby said that I can do business with that ,, and a light bulb moment came out ,, I am still in the process of researching and practicing it before I start a small business ,, so no details about it yet .. aside from that small business I was also thought about finding jobs in health care , all I need is to go back to school lean and train , but it 's hard to find something that will be suitable for me,, I still have to look after my kids and if I can find a time that will be around school time ,, it would be really good ,, but for now ,, I have to concentrate on looking after the kids and my hubby,, so I guess going back to the work force is not yet a priority ,, work at home is the best option for me at the moment ..

Well,, just want to share some nail stuff that I've done so far ...

Note: I am not a professional nail artist nor I did not study nail art just from going to other nail artist's blog sites and channel ; where I got my inspirations and ideas...

I want to move out

ahhhh its more than 16 months that we are renting this house,,, we are building our house and it is such a slow process..
Cant wait to move out of this place,,,, the rent is too high but the place is too small for the family of 5,,, kids are getting bored,, they need a big backyard to run around and play most of the time .. all they ave to do is play Plasystation or watch in our big Samsung tv ,, they needed something to do ,, now that its is Springtime ,, its the best time to be out side and play, kick ball or just stay outside,, too much technology inside and they needed to release their energies ..
Anyway,, I am hoping that the carpenters will be there to finish the frame for the house within this week,, It was raining the last week that 's why the building halted...
I'm hoping for a nice weather this week!!!!

Snow Fun

Aaahhh Spring Time here in Australia and as the weather warms up people are flocking to the shops to buy Spring items and outfit... But in the snowy mountain,,, the snow is still falling and people are still enjoying the snow.. we did not go to the snow this year,, we are concentrating on building our house ,, but it would be nice to be back to the snow next time because the last time we went there,,, the kids enjoyed it ,,, we all took a skiing lessons and at the end of the day I was able to ski , although I was just on a small slope ,,, kids also enjoyed the snow tubes , snow sled and making a snow man . But I guess we have to plan the trip next time to save money and find the best deal for the whole family ...
There are lots of things we wanted to do and explore but our main priority at the moment is building and hoping that we can finish soon , so that we can enjoy the place.
