Think about this…

An ex colleague posted this on her Facebook page. 

I understand that it’s your facebook page and that you can say whatever you want about whoever you think deserves it. You can even hang both your clean and dirty laundry for everyone’s viewing pleasure.

But I am just a bit curious… So if you said that a person who judges someone else is worse than the devil, what happens to the person who is judging the person who is worse than the devil? 😏

I miss blogging

textgram_1488603085-01.jpeg

So, I’ve been away for awhile now. I totally kept one of the blogging rules in mind, “If you want to keep people engaged and coming back, you should post three or four times per week on your blog to keep my readers from wondering whether or not you’re coming back”.

The truth is, my lappy has been giving me some problems lately. It gets really slow even to start up and halfway through the journey of being on the cyberspace, it gives up. I really think I need a new one. But right now, I don’t really have much to spare as I am saving up for rainy days (More like I have a couple of trips to look forward to and having spare cash will absolutely help!)

Anyway, I miss blogging. I’ve only started recently and I realized I miss writing them. I miss the words that flow out of me, I have been too quiet lately. I suddenly feel like my world is so mundane. I need to write again.

So right now, I am using Bug’s lappy to blog this. He promised to bring it home with him everyday so I can continue being happy in my little space 🙂

Simply Wrapp

It was Simply Wrapps for dinner last night. Recently went Halal, we couldn’t wait to grab some. Being 10mins away, Ion Orchard which is located at #B4-20 was the nearest for us.

Since it was our first time, we had one of the chef’s creation. You can actually come up with your own delish invention from the wide spread of healthy ingredients.

If you love clean eating, I prefer mine dripping wet tho, Simply Wrapps are amazing! I have to warn you though, the wraps are huge! We shared one and still got to bring home some! Definitely worth the price.

Verdict: 4/5

Parents on the phone – when is it too much?

Have you seen this viral image posted on facebook of a poster being pasted outside a daycare center telling parents to get off the phone and pay attention to their kids?

I understand that as parents, we have alot of things to deal with everyday. Some of us are working and we need our phones to settle urgent work emails, we have to liase with our spouses on certain things that needs to be done, catching up on world news to keep ourselves updated or simply having to score the best WWE supercard for that day. I am guilty too for spending too mich time on my gadgets.

But I think, our children want to feel valued and appreciated. We want to build a stronger relationship with each one of them. We need to keep on communicating with them to comprehend what our children are thinking so we can provide a venue for them to rant about the day. And giving them all our attention sends a very important message like “You are important to me”, “I enjoy being with you”. After all, our undivided attention may be the most valuable asset we can offer to our children.

The start of working out again

So, I had my first Zumba session for year 2017 this morning. It felt really great having to start working out again after 2 months of hiatus.

Basically, I suffered an injury to my right foot. Had increasing pain upon pressure applied over the 5th metatarsal region after a jog. Was very sure it wasn’t a sprain.

The idea of having to go through x-rays and MRI to get it diagnosed was really too troublesome for me. I definitely do not like the idea of having to have a cast or an orthopedic shoe on as I need my foot to move around from one place to another. So, being a capable medically trained person, well, at least I think so, I nursed it back to life.

So, I cannot wait to be physically active like how I used to be. You know how exercising can be truly addicting. Once you start, it’s a hard habit to break. And I feel pretty goddamn motivated after today’s class. Strong is truly the new sexy!

Chinese New Year 2017

The Year of the Rooster will begin on January 28, 2017. Celebrations are starting soon. The festive period usually lasts for two weeks.The Chinese New Year takes place on a different date every year as it is based on the lunar calendar. Each year is represented by a different symbol from the Chinese 12 year animal zodiac in a cycle of 12 years.

Chinese families will gather tonight to start their auspicious celebrations. Mandarin oranges which are considered traditional symbols of abundance and good fortune will be displayed as decoration and represented as gifts to relatives and friends. Red envelopes stuffed with “lucky money” will be given to children.

So while my Chinese friends are ushering the New Year with great joy and happiness, (Goodbye Year of the Goat, Hello Year of the Rooster) I am going to spend my long holiday with my loved ones.

Just good parenting?

My eldest boy who will be turning 11 this November has had a mobile device in his possession for a couple of years now as I wanted him to easily communicate with me, his dad or the authorities in case of an emergency and also to gain access to the internet for its educational value. But Bug and I also knew that by providing these tools opens the door to a bunch of potential problems.

He has recently added some of his friends to his contact list and they have been communicating through WhatsApp. There is no simple answer to the question on whether I should read his text messages. I feel that he should reasonably expect some privacy as he is mature and that my interference will send a negative message to him by in the form of trust. But at the same time, he is still a child, and I have to step up and not get confuse about my role as a parent and that is to keep him safe by keeping an eye on his daily activities while I still can and giving him the best advises possible.

So I found out yesterday that there are a couple of girls having “crushes” on him. And they were telling him how they feel about him. My gosh! I did not have this privilege of getting myself heard when I was a child. I can’t even use the house phone to talk to a boy! So unfair! This is all new to me. It was really funny. My son being him, straight with no emotions, just told these girls that he doesn’t wish to talk about the “crush” topic or else he won’ be texting them ever again.

So my advises for him this morning was to respect others even when he is communicating with them over chats. Never to hurt anyone regardless of their attitude towards him. Be nice and stay focus in class. Life has so much to offer us. And this is just the beginning.

He did asked me though if I read his messages. Well of course I denied it. Just told him it was purely motherly instinct 🙂
