I choose....

Had a bad day today.

Got into an argument over the phone with someone in the office. Work related lah, which made me feel angry, sad, frustrated & dissapointed all at the same time. But I am not going to be upset about it anymore. I choose to not hold grudges, to not hold resentments, to not judge others. I choose to forgive. I choose to love myself.

I choose to be happy!

"... whenever you are feeling down, think about something that makes you happy, something that make you smile and be thankful about it" hubby always tell me. So whenever I am down, I think about them ....

The people I love that have made me smile many times.

Have a Happy day friends.

Gong Xi Fa Cai

Gong Xi Fa Cai!

Its Chinese New Year & having the chinese root, this is the time of the year when the Kim Lee's clan traditionally get togehter for makan-makan. It is also the time for the young ones to collect angpows.

I remember many years ago, I used to say Gong Xi Fa Cai, Angpow na lai (bring the ang pow here). Now its "Gong Xi Fa Cai, lai lai aunty kasi angpow"...dulu menerima sekarang memberi. LOL..

Well, this is actually a short post to wish everyone celebrating Chinese New Year GONG XI FA CAI & good fortune ahead!

I have to go and get the red packets ready....

Golf cake

Sometime towards the end of last year, a good friend asked me to bake a golf theme cake for her dad’s 69 birthday.

This is what I came out with ...

I was searching high and low for a golf buggy but couldn’t find a size just nice to put on top of the cake. If only I managed to find one, I guess the cake wouldn’t look as plain.

Anyway, I was relieved when Shirley told me that they enjoyed the cake. Thanks Ley, and Happy Belated Birthday to you Uncle Ipang.

While uploading the cake pics, I remembered that our CEO will be celebrating his birthday in April. Since he is also an avid golfer, I guess it is a good reason to bake another golf cake. Not sure if he will be around though, cause I guess he will celebrate his birthday with loved ones back home. But hey, if he is not around then we will just mms him the cake pics & we eat the cake on his behalf. LOL. Having said that,I better start searching for that golf buggy again...

Was browsing CathJ Boutique when I came across this ...

Chantique kan? Fell in love with the dress, but cannot make up my mind whether to get it or not. So I showed it to a friend and my friend showed it to another friend and both made up their mind - they want it.

I said ok, I'll help you with the transactions. If its ok, then I'll get one for myself later. When the parcel arrived, I was busy with other things. Walaupun my friend sangat-sangat lah teruja dengan dress tu, atas sebab-sebab kesibukan, I did not took notice.

I received an email from Cath today, to remind me to take pictures wearing the dress. So I said to my friend : "Eh si Cath cakap jangan lupa ambil gambar pakai baju tu". But my friend suggested for me to try the dress instead, since the dress is still in the office. .... and I ... agreed!

........tadaaaaa.... this is for you Cath..

Not really a good model lah...terasa kekok pula di depan kamera. Ah, forget the model, but can you see the print? Memang chantique baju tu. This time, I made up my mind.. I am getting one for myself.

If you are interested to get the same (other colours available) or to see her other collections check out CathJ Boutique .

A friend smsed me this morning:
"Complimentary 1 year KRR Meal for 1st. 50 guest at KRR on 15-01-09"

I didnt quite understand the sms, so I called her. She told me that Kenny Rogers Roasters is having a promotion of 1 year Kenny Rogers Roasters Meal for free for the 1st. 50 guests. Only for today.
Interesting eh?

Had to settle many things in the office so we only managed to go out at 12.00.(pssst.. its not lunch time yet - sorry boss if you happen to read this). Not that sure if we can still get the reward, but hey, Kenny Rogers is just across the road, so why not try our luck... & guess what? Luck was indeed on our side. I was the 19th. guest for that day.

The deal? To get the reward we have to spend a minimum of RM50 (not inclusive of 10% Service Charge & Government Tax) in a single receipt. I spent about RM63.50 for 2 Quarter Meal, 14 Muffins & 2 drinks.

The rewards? .....


Thanks Viv for the info, I'll bake a nice cake for you this weekend.

A friend's wedding

Sorry for not being able to visit your blog these past few days friends. So many stories to tell too, but awal tahun ni sangat busy lah. Cant seem to find the right time to blog.

Anyway my colleagues are pestering me for the photos taken during a friend’s wedding last Saturday. So this post is going to be a short one, lebih kepada gambar-gambar.

Meriah majlisnya. The Groom - Ruslan is our ex-colleague. He resigned setelah mendapat offer untuk bekerja di Qatar.


Ruslan & Rusmah

dua jejaka yang ditunggu-tunggu giliran dorang untuk berkaraoke, tapi nda juga sampai-sampai. Both sudah berpunya ni.

...pasangan-pasangan bahagia ....

"Selamat Pengantin Baru Lan, semoga berkekalan hingga ke akhir hayat."

Wide awake

"Shasha sleep? Macam tiada dengar suara dia" hubby asked at about 9.00 last nite. I said "ya maybe". Then I went in to their room to make sure and ...

I love the way this 3 sisters share a bed while doing their own things. So I quickly went out, took my camera and took a pic..

.... lepas menyusu terus duduk bah ..

.... main PS2. I tell you, she is a pro, she knows how to switch on the TV and PS2, terus cepat-cepat pegang joystick. Sometimes I pity her, she seriously thought that dia yang main.

...dan at 1 year 5 months, for her panjat-memanjat ini adalah perkara kecil ...

I went back to our room, showed hubby the pic I took and said "no honey, she is wide awake"

New School

Aleeya has not been sleeping well for the past few days, thinking about her new school - the new environment and new friends that she is going to meet. Tried to convince her that everything is going to be ok and there is nothing for her to worry about, but then again, I understand her feelings. So I took a day off yesterday, to make sure that everything goes well.

..not sure whats on her mind, termenung jauh nampaknya anak ku ini.

... but when she realised that I was taking her photo, she quickly put a little smile on her face. She knows I will definitely put the picture in my blog.

New class, new friends, new teachers - I was eagerly waiting for her comments when I pick her up from school in the evening. Ok darjah satu mummy. Mana ada I cry. Ok ba school, she said.

Ah, just the exact response I wanted. I smile and kissed her. For being good, I gave her a little surprise...

She slept well last night. Today will be another new experience for her - I hope, I pray that everything is going to be fine.

Aly, if you are reading this - Mum love you, belajar baik-baik ok. Just remember our promise.
