rant this morning shall be on.....

Kengkadang I penat baca the FB posts of some super efficient moms . You know the type - who discuss the various milk/medication/school etc in minute detail . I jealous sebenarnya.  I get so aware of how super lazy I have been as a mom, and so inadequate kot.  I must be because I never bothered to do my investigations as to what kind of milk to give my kid, between the many many vitamins infused milk there are in the market. I only gave breast milk, and when they were off breast milk,  I bought whatever is on sale- usually everyday milk. Or when in the UK, fresh milk he he (cheap and easily available) Vitamin infused milk were expensive for government doctor's salary wei! Even breastmilk pun I never felt the need to press and store in bottles . On the occasions I tried, I eked out a meagre 1 oz I think. Much easier to put the kid on the breast . On immunisation pun I just trusted the doctors and went on with it. I mean, the diseases have been eradicated kan, so what more evidence do i need ? 

He he sorry the rant- my personal opinion je ni. The parents are very concerned about their child- but who isn't . Jangan over concern dah ler..until  you see the world as full of harm to your kid. and you don't enjoy the journey of them growing up.  Don't lah overstress ..enjoy the ride, as much as you can. enjoy the kids, as much as you can. Immunise them for heaven's sake. Give them breastmilk or not. Send them to a school they enjoy and not just cause it's good for them . Let them learn at their own pace. Don't make it into a world of  rules and regulations that at 8 years old you are forcing them to go to extra classes. I didn't want to force the kids to do anything they didn't want to do. they only did music when they told me they wanted to learn. They dropped out of activities when they got bored. Why waste time doing something  you don't enjoy, right. Between their mom whose philosophy is life is short, and their dad whose  philosophy is just do  it lah,I am amazed that my kids are not lazy bums who fail in school. 

Ok rant over. Sorry yer...hehehe

And how are you ?

Hi there lalings

It's raya month.. Happy Hari Raya! How did you spend your Raya? We went home to Kluang for almost a week, this time around we went before Eid ,which filled me with trepidation actually because it would mean that we would be in charge of preparing the house . And the maid had to be left because the cat would die if no one feeds it hahahaha. I wanted to bring the maid, but seriously my cat is the type that waits by the tap for someone to turn it on, before she drinks from it~ !! We'd be doing our stuff, turn around and find her by the tap. patiently waiting. Pas tu have to make sure the water is not too fast! Ngada or not

Anyway yes the entire family descended by the 3rd Raya, and we took a family photo

haa tu dia..that's the entire clan as of this year! All of the siblings were together finally - one is in HK doing her dentistry, one cousin sibling (cousin raised by parents in law) works in Qatar now.

Some sadness- visited husband's cousin uncle (mom's cousin) who had been diagnosed with liver cancer. He was not aware of how dire it is, and was very happy when we went. He asked though, halfway what his prognosis and whether he was living on borrowed time. Hubbs terdiam sekejap. couldn't say anything. But he got the message. Stage 4 you.

Another big thing was the Hajah Safero gathering that we did. Basically mom's aunties and uncles from the same grandmother and all their relatives were gathered . Oiii pening wooh because ada ramai..and we wanted to collect monies for it. but yours truly here was in charge of setting a i said RM10. per working adult. So in the end..yours truly and the others in AJK had to top up ler hahaha - but it was really fun and nice.  Haa, this was the wedding of one aunt ages ago. Standing from left: Opah tam (no 4) OPah Mok (no 5), Opah Ngah (no 2) and Opah teh (er no 3)-- sitting is Opah Chu bedah (to be distinguished from Opah Chu Selayang (same mom but 2 dads) - only Opah Chu Bedah , Opah Teh and Opah Chu Selayang is around. Opah Chu Bedah has a bigger brother, who also passed away.

Ok then gotto go back to work...Thinking of this:

Winter Sonata sure is different at 49 years old!

Believe it or not I am rewatching Winter Sonata.. ee geram betul I dengan si Yujin tu lah... she really was a wutz wasn't she? and...
