I Heart Shopaholic

I have finally watched the much awaited Confessions of a Shopaholic and I LOVED IT! Sure, lots were changed from the book but hey the movie was entertaining and so funny. My mom and I laughed our heads off through out the movie. The clothes, shoes and bags were as expected.... GORGEOUS! I drooled and sighed at the many beautiful stilettos and dresses but cringe and shudder whenever Becky received calls from Derek Smeath. Eeeeks! What a creepy looking guy. Luke Brandon, on the other hand, is a heaththrob, doncha think?

So like many (millions) other Sophie Kinsella's fans, I've read all of her books and even some of which she wrote under the name Madeleine Wickham. I loved all of the Kinsella books however her Wickham books were mostly bland. Hmmm I wonder why.

When my mom and I watched the movie tadi, it was the first show for the day. I just love watching movies during working days. The cinema will be quiet. There will be no queue and the washrooms will be squeaky clean. I memang sangguplah ambik cuti just to watch movies. Have been doing this for years. Ambik cuti and tengok movie sorang2. I really don't mind catching a movie alone because this means that I can cry my eyes out or watch some real silly romantic comedies without Daddy teasing me :p

Eh my two girls are asleep already. Just a few minutes ago they were up and about and now they are both tucked under the comforter on my bed. I think I wanna join them. It's back at work tomorrow and I need my rest. Very sleepy. Goodnite all, sweet dreams ya.

Happy Birthday Adik!

Today my little sister turns 21. Tuanya ;p

Wishing you a very happy birthday sissy and waaaaaiting for the time that you'll belanja us dinner... heheh!

Love ya!

p/s.. Audrene & Maira pun wish happy birthday!

Earth Hour

It's Earth Hour and I'm doing all I can to support this noble cause. Can't go pitch black at home cos my two darlings will be terrified but I have switched off most lights. Only 2 are switched on right now.

Besides turning off non-essential lights at home, I've also done my bit to promote Earth Hour in the office. Throughout these past 2 weeks, whenever my colleagues switch on their computers in the morning, they will see a pop-up message which mostly consists of tips on energy-saving as well as reminders to "go green" - recycle, recycle, recycle! From this internal campaign, I learnt that energy saving bulbs can last up to 10 times more than the normal bulbs and using screen savers on your computers actually consumes more energy. So everyone, turn off your computer or at least the monitor whenever it is not in use.

Ooooh today I did something which I have never done before - shopped online! I know I am sooooooo outdated. I have never felt comfortable buying through the net but today I did it! I've overcame my fear! Hurray! Hey, just realised - shopping online also helps in saving the environment. Less driving, less smoke!

Alright people. Have a great Earth Hour. I see that a number of couples planned for romantic candlelight dinner. Very creative! I like!

Vietnamese Lunch

Went Vietnamese for lunch today - at Bong Sen KLCC. Food was ok but the wait was soooooo long. Definitely not coming back on a Friday. Too busy. Probably better service during other weekdays.

Zee's lunch. Some cold dish. She didn't really like it.


Mine - beef ball egg noodle. The serving was just nice for me. I like!


Appetizers.. yummm!



Update on Baby Maira - phew, she has totally recovered :) She's all bouncy and happy like usual and I'm so so glad. It's really hard when the kids are sick. I can't stand the worrying part. What I'm gonna do is, I'm gonna keep on breastfeeding Maira cos I know this could help prevent her from falling sick.

Owh... am so sleepy already...*big yawn*.. I'd better join Maira who is tucked in bed gleefully. Audrene, of course, is at her grandparents and Daddy's not back yet. I foresee a very busy weekend for me. Lotsa stuff to settle eg kenduri, taylor, cobbler, shopping (for essentials only), entertaining the girls, masak (ayo), laundry (hate this), etc, etc.

So goodnite everyone and have a great weekend!

Meeting Friends

Took Audrene out for dinner with some friends last night. They brought their kiddos too and hmmm they were mostly girls. So apa lagi, of course Audrene tersangat seronok. Play, play and play!

We went to Marche at The Curve. I didn't eat that much. It's buffet night every Tuesday but last night was their last buffet. Like always, the food were good but I was too busy chatting that I forgot all about food.

Here's a pic of the kiddies last night... Yup, ada a set of twins!



Immediate bonding with my old old friend Ja's daughter - Aafreen. Ja, btw, is my friend who named Audrene. She just had her 3rd baby and she named her Adelea... macam Audrene (Audrene's full name is Audrene Adelia).



Didn't bring Maira cos she was not well. Actually she's still sick right now. Brought her to the dr's again today. Hopefully she'll be ok in a day or 2. Sian dia :(

Still Demam

Baby Maira is still unwell so I'm at home taking care of her.

Fever :(

This afternoon while attending a meeting, I received a call from my daughters' nursery. I will always panic when I see the nursery calling. Mesti one of the girls not well. This time Baby Maira demam rupanya. This is the first time Maira falls sick for no specific reason. She has had fever before but only because of the jabs. Lucky I was at the Damansara office so once the meeting ended at about 4.30pm, I rushed home to pick up Daddy who was already waiting and we immediately picked up the girls. Then off we went to see the kids' dr at DSH.

After a thorough check-up, Adik demam and sakit tekak rupanya. No wonder she didn't eat and drink well. She is usually a big eater, menjerit-jerit nak food cepat but today the nursery girls said Maira took only a little bit of solid. Kesian dia :(

Now after taking her meds, Maira looks ok and she has had 2 rounds of milk. She's even crawling now and has started shrieking at Audrene. Nak ajak main. Hope she'll be a-ok by tomorrow. No fun when the kids are sick kan?

Ooooh btw, now I know where Wondermilk is. Sheeesh am so out-dated. I always read about how good the cupcakes are but never knew where to get them. Now I know where it is and it's quite nearby - at Damansara Uptown area. I'm definitely going there this weekend. Ehem.. ehem...Adik nak ikut? ;p

Princessy Day

My mom and I had fun when we took Audrene to the Disney Princess Wishes show today. The show was much more enjoyable for me than the one I went to last year cos most of the characters and songs were my all-time favourite. Audrene, of course, was excited beyond words that she refused to pose for pictures AND refused to buy any merchandise (unbelievable but phew!!). Her jaw also dropped at some parts during the show. Seriously ternganga! Couldn't believe that the Princesses she usually watch on her laptop (her movie cartoons are all uploaded in her lappie) were dancing "live" right in front of her eyes. I, on the other hand, was amused as well as speechless by her reaction.

However, later in the evening, she overcame her excitement and started calling her aunts and uncle to tell them about her Princessy afternoon. She then told me that we HAVE to go again la Mummy... Have to bring Aunty Mai.. Nanti Aunty Mai nangis. Nantia dia marah Mummy... How?? Oooo tactic nak pegi lagi.. Sorry la darling, not this round. Probably in the next season and with Baby Maira pulak :)

Here's one shot that I managed to get of my sweetheart. Pakai tiara of course.. Dia pun princess jugak ;)

Sudah Merangkak!

Hey hey hey my darling teddy bear @ Baby Maira has started crawling yesterday!! So now she can go to wherever she wants to go. Just now she crawled to my mom because she wanted to be carried and then she crawled to Audrene's in-house vehicle (hehe.. Audrene's little pink tut-tut). Teringin sgt nak naik tu. And right now, she's right next to me, nak tolong type jugak :p

Here are both of my darlings, pix taken a few minutes ago. Both tak tido lagi... Haiyo! Check out kakak dengan bottle filled with her favourite susu coklat panas.



This pix was taken during the weekend while they were goofing around.



Oooh this weekend is the Disney Princess Wishes weekend and Audrene is very excited already. She has picked up her outfit to wear to the show and of course it's her pink Princess dress.

Eh.. Audrene is giving Daddy a massage.. Not fair! Mummy nak jugak! Chao everyone!

I Feel...

Super efficient today!

It's 10.30pm and I've sterilised the bottles, cleaned up the kitchen, packed the kids' bags etc etc so this leaves me some time to read. Yay!

I'm currently reading Shoe Addicts Anonymous by Beth Harbison. Okla, fun read but I would identify more to the characters if the book were Bag Addicts Anonymous.. heheh!

Gosh it's raining cats and dogs outside. I'm sooo glad I'm home. Wouldn't want to be stuck on the road during this kinda weather.

Oh yeah, my friend sent me this video and I'd like to share it with all mommies out there. Enjoy!

Alright, goodnite everyone, wanna hit my book :D

Zoo!

Audrene requested to go to the Zoo as her reward for being a good girl last week. I think the last time we went to the Zoo was when she was 1+ (cos she couldn't speak properly then. I remember her saying bye bye yee-yaff at the giraffes when we wanted to leave). She did go to the zoo with her nursery friends last year and after that whenever we asked her if she wanted to go to the zoo she'd proudly reply.. tak nak.. saya dah pegi dengan saya punya friends :)

Audrene said she wanted to go to the zoo yesterday because dah lama tak tengok elephants. Unfortunately the outing was cut short because of the heavy downpour but luckily there was the tram service so we could still tour the entire Zoo in the rain. Quite fun basah-basah. Maira pun suka!

Audrene and Adik


With her favourite bird.. the flamingoes


Goodnite... tido time :)


p/s.. both Audrene and Daddy are out, and Baby's sleeping.. Yay! Mummy can read and eat chocolate sorang-sorang ;p

Relaxing Massage


Today is one of the few days that I managed to escape from the heavy traffic. The road was so clear that I could catch my 7pm massage appointment at the Urban Retreat. For a few weeks I have been making and breaking appointments so today I am so happy I made it. Tonight I am going to bed stress free. My body feels light. My muscle is relaxed. Weee!

To those who have not been to Urban Retreat at The Curve, I totally recommend this place. There is a variety of packages to choose from. My favourites are their aromatherapy body massage and foot massage. They even have massages for preggie mommies. Price is reasonable and the tea they serve is so so good. Sometimes I think I go there more for the tea. Oh yah, another good point is the therapists are not chatty so I can enjoy my hour there peacefully :)

Now I look forward to tomorrow cos I think I'll wake up light and cheery. Goodnight everyone. Unsterilised bottles are calling me ;p

Flood

I was one of the unfortunate thousands who were stuck in the traffic jam last night. Left the office at 6pm and arrived home at 9.45pm. I could have gone to Melaka and came back to KL. You could only imagine how tired I was by the time I hit the bed. Sigh.. is this something that I will have to face more often now that the earth's getting warmer? Huaaaa.. I hope not!

This morning I woke up with a terrible headache and stiff neck. Boy was I tempted to ring the office for a day off. But considering that I actually had lots of work to settle today, I pegi jugak ofis only to find the traffic clear and smooth. Hehe, I guess the rest of the people either ambik mc or emergency leave. Well whatodo.. I totally understand!

But seriously, someone has got to do something about this or else a large percentage of the KLites might end up crazy. How can tahan duduk dalam kereta for that long!

Another 2 days to go till the weekend and Monday is a public holiday. Hurrah!

Star Wars Party

Audrene got an invitation to a birthday party and it was a Star Wars do. So much fun indeed!

Mummy and Jedi Robot (?)



Pinata time! Smash Darth Vader's head everyone!



With the birthday boy and friends



There were three small kiddie pools too but the kiddos' fun in the water was cut short because of the rain. But you know kids, rain or sunshine, they will still have loads of fun. And as for mummy and daddy, as long as the kiddo had fun and food were yummy, we of course had a great time too ;D
