All he wanted for Christmas.....

Christmas is fast approaching and my My boy loves to watch the DVD Polar Express almost everyday........ It is getting annoying now .. but at least he knows that he has to be good or Santa wont give him Christmas toys ......
He is always telling me that he likes the Optimus Prime toy and Thomas and friends Mystic Island rescue toys and that he wanted to tell Santa about it .... We told him that he is getting just one toy from Santa ,, but he was firm to believe that Santa will give these toys to him,,,,, hmmm I hope so..........

Anyway ,, the Christmas season is fast approaching and no one can stop it,, whether its the Christmas decor, Christmas carols , Christmas sale or ads from everywhere ,, its making me all giddy ,, we are building our house and almost finished and I really wanted to move in there by Christmas ,,,,, ohhh Santa ... can you do that for me ,,, to rush all the workers so we can have our 1st Christmas there ..........

Pretty as.....


Last week my 16 year old had her school's Year 10 Formal ..... She looked radiant with her long gown , perfect hair and subtle make up .. Mummy and Dad was really proud of her,, she carried herself really well ...

But,, to make herself perfect during that night entailed a really fussy preparation... months and months before the formal ,, my girl and friends had already been talking about what to wear , how to have a dramatic arrival and so o and so on ,, 1st of all she searched high and low for a good acne treatment , she would hate going to a formal with all the zits ..... 2nd she had to go to jog / walk everyday ,,, needed that to fit into a decent gown of course ...
finding a good hairdresser and hair stylist ...

The head ache began when she started looking for her dress!!!!!!!!! stressful moment ,, forget to mention the shoes and the clutch!!!! she also gave a me head ache about finding a perfect dress......... but alas!!!!! she did most of the searching ....... and she did really well!!!!!

No happy .....

I badly need a weight loss pills that work .................

I feel so frumpy and unhappy .... :-( I just let myself go ,, Honestly even though I do Zumba once aweek ,, btw,, I really sweat alot during Zumba,,, feeling that I just went to a sauna,, but afterwards ,, fizzy drinks,, high calorie foods ,,,, yeah ,, very bad .......
I am just not pumped up to loose weight and manage my bad eating habit... geezzz,, gonna turn 40 and yuck......... argggggg that is how I feel ,, am I having a mid life crisis?? I think I am ,, I saying I wanna loose weight but not motivated to do to something about it ...

Crisis hotline wait for my call...............

Birthday soon


I am counting the days.... I've got mixed emotions as I am nearly turing big 40!!!!!! I opted not to have a party anymore,,I guess with too much expenses that we are doing at the moment ,, I just feel I don't want to make a big fuss out of it ...so simple dinner with my hubby and kids would make my day on Thursday.
Eldest daughter is asking me what I want for my birthday ,, she is so inundated with so much choices even goggling " birthday gift for women " but I told her she should already know by now what are the things I like .. I just let her decide for herself ...
Love ... Happiness ... Health ..... those are the things I wanted to have forever ....

I am soooooo Hooked with all the DIY ladies on the net .... yupp.. those talented mums who are doing some renovations, creating and recycling things.. errr junk ... But they are giving me so much inspiration... So whenever I visit a blog , I bookmark every single blog that also do DIY and home decorating..
So now I'm hooked with them,, and I do visit my local charity shop to look for some hidden treasures to be transformed and I found some pieces ,, nice pieces that and some stuff still have those old handles ,, and needed hardware restoration .. I am now learning how to look at some beautiful old furniture and I have this mental picture of things that I like to do ,, Thank you for all the inspiration I'm getting from other blogs .....

No Big holiday this year

Ahhh I remember last year when I was getting all giddy and excited about our trip to HK Disneyland and then travel to Philippines to visit my family ..
Its November now and I still have the feeling of going for a holiday again ,, since our visit from last year and seeing how my kids are so well behaved and loving going on travel ,, my hubby and I will surely plan our next vacation and will look into a Disney vacation packages ... We wanted to go to USA in few years time ,,, we love the experience of being on an overseas holiday ,, so we really have to save for it and with all the expenses we are doing this year for building our house ,, this coming Christmas Holiday , we might just go stay around our state ,, no big holidays this 2010 , But we will surely look forward to a BIG holiday next time.....

November birthday .....

OK.. NOVEMBER!!!!!!!!

Im getting anxious ...... really anxious about the month of November ......
ahhhhh,, its inevitable ,,,, I'm turning 40 soon........ arggggg....it hurts .......
The time is ticking and here I am still oblivious onto what I'm going to do for my big 40 ..


Hmmm,,, my Hubby is acting weird ,,, he just told me to have a dinner with my girlfriends ,, on the weekend before my birthday not on the weekend after my birthday ,, hmmm,, I was thinking maybe he's got something for me on that weekend ,, don't want to ask maybe its a surprise ,, or maybe not ,, I don't want to be disappointed knowing he's done nothing for me......
Anyway ,,,,, I'll just update you guys about it ...

I don't like surprises ,, I wanted to be ready ,, get organized ,, send our invitations ,, by the way ,, I was browsing at some birthday invites on Pear tree greetings ,,but what caught my attention was the huge range of kids invites ,, from Baby announcement , Baptism invitations , birthdays and so on .... OK back to the lady whose feeling a bit old at the moment ........ yeah ,,, I might just take my girlfriends for a dinner and a drink ,,, all girls ,, no kids and hubby in tow ... So have to ring them up and find out what where do they prefer to dine ....
