Reality Bites

As much as I don’t want to believe, I decided to give it a try – after I realized the skin of my feet gave in too much to their bites.

Yes, shoe bites.

You know the old superstition I’m sure. Bite the shoes before they bite you!

I’ve never been a believer, though I know a lot of people swears by it.

Last week, I thought my hunt for lower heels was a success when I got myself 2 pairs of peep toes in gold and black. Wore the black one straightaway (without biting!) and yes, it bit me.  Just after a few minutes!

So you guessed it! Hate to see things purchased left unworn, I bit both of them next! (With tissues of course! You never know whose feet tried on those before me)

…and still not wanting to believe, I’d still say it’s pure coincidence, but yes, both shoes have stopped biting you know!

Tell me,

Do you bite your shoes before they bite you?

The Home

After many weeks of wanting to, but to no avail, I finally managed to get some house plants to make the house greener, and cozier.

And after much effort to make the house a home, this morning, hubs said to me,

We need to get a landed house laa… susah nak basuh kereta

Alahaiiii… basuh kereta can be an issue to guys eh? Maybe it’s equivalent to retail therapy for us ladies.

HUGE problem

Yesterday I opened up Imtiyaz’s communication book and called out to hubs,

We have a problem!

He came over, ala2 panic…

Imtiyaz ada school’s photoshoot on Monday. Read this line.

And I showed him the part where all the children are required to come to school on Monday wearing their SCHOOL UNIFORM! (… shoes and socks, and combed hair also… alahaiiiii…. don’t they know combed hair a few minutes before, could mean uncombed hair just a few minutes later?)

I have to tell you, that, after almost 8 months, he still refuses to wear his school uniform!

I hope the teachers and staffs won’t think of me as a mom who can’t follow orders when he goes to school on Monday not in uniform… (most probably in his Spiderman slippers too!)

What else is new pun? (I’ll put the stuffs in the bag la of course…)

Don’t suggest me to pujuk2 him or what-not, coz it just won’t work… this boy knows what he wants even in sleepy mode… yes, THAT tough!

p.s. Maybe I should propose to the school’s admin – for next year, please design new uniform for children with taste… *grins*

Only Bird

On the way to school this morning (different route because of the massive jam on MRR2) :

Mama, KLC (KLCC) and KL Tower!

Do you wanna go up KLCC and KL Tower?

No. It’s too high. Only bird.

The Device

For those of you curious to know what my colleagues and I received last week…

jeng jeng jengggg…


A step counter that keeps track of every step, every day, with 7 days memory, you know!

Apparently there will be a competition among branches worldwide, or so I’ve heard. No proper briefing yet, but they’ve had it in the previous years, and Malaysia office… naturally, lost!

Come on… in a culture where there’s even a shuttle service provided from the parking lot to the building, which is a mere 10-15 minutes walk (depending on how long your legs are, and how early you arrive to get the nearest parking spot), and a culture where cycling to work is a norm, and a walk up the mountains is an after-office-hour bliss in the summer,

Do you think we stand a chance? *grins*

A week’s worth


… of updates!!

Let me see…

Last weekend was full of food, and good food too! 2 weddings and a potluck at mummy-o’s place. As usual, nothing beats good company and good food! 😉

Selamat Pengantin Baru to Fuzz & Zamel!

Then there’s the training all week… with a colleague flown all the way from Bergen.

There was also the dinner with colleagues last night (yumms!), followed by bowling, which I had to skip as Hubs and Imtiyaz came along with me, and decided to spend time at the Pets World while waiting. Imtiyaz insisted to see animus (animals) specifically kangayoo. Lucky he didn’t create a scene when he couldn’t find any. (obviously!)

And today, is dear hubs 30th birthday! Another nice dinner tonight, just the 3 of us… and inviting some families over tomorrow for tea!

Sunday, I’ll just laze around maybe, or go to a nearby park for an early morning picnic perhaps! The idea of having nasi lemak by the stream is just lovely don’t you think? (Must also remember to jog/swim off all the fats of course!)

Maybe later I’ll blog about a new device I received from the company yesterday. Supposed to promote good health. 😉

Have a good weekend y’all!

I have always been interested in the life of the arab women – the mystery, the life hidden under their black abayas, and the fact that they are the biggest contributor to the cosmetic and fashion industry!

So, just to satisfy my curiosity, I bought this book when the book I initially wanted have just arrived and doesn’t even have a price tag yet! Eventhough most of the things written I am already aware of, there are so much more that left me with an open mouth just by reading them!

A good read, and I am definitely buying more books from the author!
