Car Seat Battle

Every time I am in the car with Dylan, I need to get into a battle for him to remain seated in his car seat. You would think that after being strapped to the car seat for the first 3 years of his life everytime he is in the car, he would cooperate right? But NOOOOOOooooo..he is worse that than the time when he was a baby.
Many times, I wished there was a roadside assistance club that I can call to help force the kid to remain seated in his car seat.
I have ordered a booster seat for him just like Bryan’s because he said he wants a seat just like his gege’s. Hope that he will sit in that seat coz that chair don’t come cheap.

Boom time?

Seems like our economy is currently doing very well. A few recently launched property projects sold like hot cakes and the stock market has been performing very well too. My sister in law was telling me that she has a fewaccounting finance jobs openings at her company and that she is finding it hard to fill them up. Looks like everybody is hiring too. It is a “happy” time and I just hope that it lasts for some time so that people like us can reap some “rewards” before the downtime comes. Afterall, what goes up, will come down. It is just a matter of when.

Yay Friday

I can’t wait for this weekend to come. I have so much activities planned for the kids and I doubt I will have the time to do colon cleanser review. Planning to take the kids swimming (as usual) but I have bought a new swim trainer for Bryan. Can’t wait to see how it works on him. Also, if the weather and time permits, I am also planning a special “nature” activity with the boys. Hope everything will happen as planned.

Moving on

I met up with an old friend yesterday and was totally shocked to learn that she had divorced from her husband. She found out that her husband was keeping a mistress in China when she was pregnant with their second child. Luckily, she was very strong and and smart! During the separation, she had her husband transfered all their savings to their elder child’s name with her as guardian. She was a SAHM and so she did not have much personal savings. Because of the separation, she now has to get back to workforce. And while she used to be a “yellow-skin” housewife, she now looks like a real corporate lady, very prim and attractive. Her complexion had cleared up with the help of some best acne products. Well, she said, “I have to prove that I can live a better life.” Way to go girl….We support you!

Due again

My car insurance premium will be due soon. Since I drive an old budget car, it is not going to break my purse. The premium is pretty cheap plus I am entitled to 55% no claim bonus. That’s the reason that I am refusing to upgrade my car despite my husband’s endless pestering. I don’t see the need to drive an expensive car when I don’t drive most of the time. I rather put my money somewhere to earn some passive income for myself. But if you are not like me, and you own a pretty expensive car, then you better It could save you a lot of money for your next premium.

Love for Coffee

I love coffee. My husband too. And recently we found the best coffee in Penang. Nope it cannot be found in any restaurants. It is at my aunt’s house. And guess who is the barista? Her maid! Honestly, her maid made the best coffee. Even my aunt and uncle said that. Luckily we are welcomed at my aunt’s house anytime. Yay, free GOOD coffee.

When I told this to my good friend, she said that if she was I, it would be useless. As she is allergic to coffee. The last time she accidentally tasted coffee cheesecake, it resulted in an ambulance trip to the hospital where she was hooked up to ecg machines due to her frantic heartbeat.

So glad that I can enjoy coffee….

Creative Times

Both my kids love to draw. They scribble on small pieces of paper, on the old school books and of course on their doodling board. Sometimes I knew exactly what they were drawing. Others, I have no idea at all what they were doing. The other day, Dylan drew an oval with some criss cross lines in the middle. I asked him what it was, and he told me that it is an apple bottom. LOL! Of course I have to pretend that I see that too. Since they both love drawing so much, I was thinking if I should start sending them for art classes.

Knowledge is Everywhere

My close friend is trying to get pregnant. And she loves to ask me all sorts of questions about pregnancy and also taking care of baby. She thinks that I am very knowledgeable. But honestly, most of what I know is from the internet. Everything can be found on there. You can find out about the yoga poses to the best acne treatments for pregnant ladies. I am glad that I live in the era where I literally have the knowledge at my fingertips.

People sometimes ask me which child do I favor more. My elder or my baby boy. My honest answer is “I don’t know.” They are both very different and I love them in different ways. For example, Bryan is the “academic” type. He does me really proud by his ability to read. Friends and families marvel at the books that he is able to read independently when they visit us. Dylan on the other hand is the physical type and very “street-wise”. He charms us with his antics and often surprises us with the things he said. However, he still can’t really tell xyz from hgh. No child is perfect but each one of them has a special place in my heart.

Energy bunnies

Honestly I have no idea why kids have so much energy. Yesterday, we took the children to meet up with some friends over lunch. Once we got home, Dylan napped for only slightly over an hour. Once he woke up, I cooked dinner- it was spaghetti/ macaroni (because each kid have a different request) with mushroom & cheese sauce. But, no we did not have an early dinner.

Instead I took the kids swimming after I finished cooking, while hubb hit the gym. The kids spent more than 2 hours in the pool where we saw a mother snapping photos non stop with a olympus cameras. Even after the 2 hour swim, they were reluctant to go home. They wanted to play at the kids’ playroom.

I was starving when we got home. Thank goodness dinner just needs to be reheated up. I always make sure that dinner is ready before we go swimming. Both kids finished dinner in a jiffy and I wanted to tuck them to bed early. I thought they would be tired after such a long day. But nooooooo…they still wanted to play while watching GLEE, and then even some Cantonese TVB drama. It was 11pm by the time they are willing to close their eyes…Gosh, where did all the energy come from.
