Fat Fish and Fat Me

Last week, the Year 2 mummies decided to go brunching at Fat Fish. I of course jumped and said OK because I love Fat Fish.

4 of us went and we had so much fun. Food was glorious and all the other slim mummies stopped eating way before yours truly did. Hence, I am the Fat Fish that day!

Wow we really ordered A LOT!

We ordered mussels in garlic. It was so good. The mummy who ordered this only ate like 5 pcs and yours truly ate more than 20 I'm sure. I was eating it non stop! The other 2 mummies didnt eat this at all. LOL

I order this every time I go to Fat Fish but somehow it never tasted as good as it did the first time I ordered it. But yet, I keep ordering this. This is their spicy prawn pasta. It is good but maybe next time I shouldn't order this again. I should try something else.

Hampshire Mummy ordered this. Yum. I stole some from her. Actually, I stole a lot!! I keep dreaming of kuah asam dip because it will go so well with this grilled squid.

This is their mash potato. It is sooooo good. I think I had 75% of this and others just had a bit. Argh. It is so good I'm still drooling. I can eat this all day. I dont even care if I'm fat anymore.

Oysters at 11.30am? Why not. I love oysters. It is so good and fresh. This is too good. I'm drooling as I am typing this.

But before we eat, photo time first! LOL

Option B

Do you guys watch the Ellen Show? Well, I do. I love talk shows and Ellen's my favourite. She's funny, entertaining and I love how the show really brings out everything good. "Be Kind of one another" is what the show is all about.

It airs every evening at 6pm if I'm not mistaken. 6pm is not the time for me to watch TV at all so what I do is I will record the show and watch it later when I'm free. I usually catch up on TV shows I record in advance once my kids are in bed. They will be in bed by 8.30pm. 9.00pm onwards will be my "me" time in front of the TV till maybe about 11.00pm or so.

In one episode of Ellen, I saw an interview between her and the COO of Facebook, this lady called Sheryl Sandburg. She was talking about how devastated she got when her husband died. I was inspired by her story and was desperate to read her book called "Option B: facing adversity, building resilience and finding joy"


In that interview she also spoke a bit about this book and what people can learn from her experience. I started looking for this book but couldn't find it in any of our major bookstores. Finally, I managed to order it online from MPH.

Few days later, my book came.

Here's the thing, I've not read a book in a good almost 7 years. I dont read serious books at all because I get bored and I dont like to read things I dont understand. I usually love reading easy reading, happy-happy type books. Yeah, books for bimbos if you want to call it that. I dont even know if I will end up reading this book but I was really inspired by Sheryl and thought I'd give it a go.

I aim to finish this book in 2 weeks. I know it is a long time but I dont read all that much and I haven't read a book since forever. 2 weeks would be a good accomplishment. I dont even know if I will finish reading it. I'm on to chapter 4 now. I try to read at every opportunity I get and so far, so good.

Reading this book, I can sort of picture Sheryl telling the story just like she did on that interview. I just love the way she speaks and how she talks. I can listen to her all day. Wish me luck.

I already have few friends who wants to borrow the book after I'm done. I hope I'll get to pass it to them soon.

Oh, another thing I did was ordered Life Juice. Nothing related to this book story whatsoever but I just thought of going on a juice diet after eating out like crazy last week.


Life Juice has always been my Option A whenever I want to do a Juice diet but lately, their service doesn't seem as good as what it used to be. I find that their juices dont taste the same anymore too. Doesn't taste that "fresh and pure" if you know what I mean. I find that it is sweeter too.

Any other juice to recommend? I need option B!

Happy Mother's Day

How was your Mother's Day celebration? We were away in Penang for Mother's Day. The Penang trip was actually because we had a business meeting to attend to on Saturday and when the kids heard the word "Penang" they quickly jumped and made their own plans. What was supposed to be a day trip meeting, turned out to be a weekend away. Since it is the Mother's Day weekend, my husband obviously didnt get the chance to plan anything special. Basically, my Mother's Day was just like any other day.

I hope you all had a good celebration. I see it everywhere on social media. Mothers getting pampered and got flowers and whatnot. I didnt get any. You'd think I'd be sad or upset but truth is, I'm OK.

We were traveling the whole Sunday and had a nice dinner once we arrived KL. I jokingly told my daughter that no one cares about me on Mother's Day and she felt really sad that we didnt do anything special. The drama queen she is, she even shed a few tears. In bed, while I was in the toilet getting ready for bed, I overheard her conversations with my husband and son. It was so funny and sweet. She said she felt bad that they didnt do anything special for me. She told them that this weekend, we have to do something special for mummy and she planned everything. The surprise "party". It was so cute.
I felt so much love.


Everyday is Mother's Day to me. It's really no big deal at all but she just feels sad that we didnt celebrate. For me, it is not a big deal because we were away on a nice holiday, we had good food, I didnt have to cook (hurray) and we were by the beach…so yea, it was special already.


Anyway, my daughter made this special card in school for me. I know the teachers helped but when she gave it to me I was touched by the effort. She was so happy to give it to me too. She is such a darling sweetheart. I love her to bits.

My son on the other hand, made something in school too for Mother's Day but I dont know why he didnt bring it back. LOL. I know exactly what he made because I saw other mothers posted it. Here I am waiting for it but until today, no signs of that photo frame! I need to ask the teacher!


I also got a special gift from Hampshire Mummy. Thank you so much. It is really pretty!!! I love it.

Happy Mother's Day to all my readers. I hope you all had a fun day with your loved ones. Oh, and check out this article on NST on how working moms make it work. A bit of my story is there!

Inspired to change

I am one of those people who is afraid of the word "change". So afraid that I rather be miserable than attempting change. That's dumb dont you think? Well, can you blame me? The thought of making a life change is intimidating. I want to be the master of my own destiny but I am so afraid to make the change. I know if I can get rid of this fear, I can do anything! But yet, this fear is eating me.

Last week, I was really EATING A LOT. Apart from spending a lot more money when I should be saving up, I find myself eating and eating and eating non stop. I love food. I can eat all day everyday but is it healthy food I am consuming? This can't be good!

I spoke to friends and one thing they all have in common is that they are all either going to the gym or doing something good for their health (like eating ONLY organic food). Me on the other hand, apart from consuming my daily IZUMIO and Super Lutein, is not doing anything else "healthy".

"You got to start working out" is something I hear and been hearing a lot lately.

Here's the truth, I DONT work out - AT ALL. I do zero work out. I dont even like to walk, even if it is walking in the shopping mall. One word to describe me is L-A-Z-Y-B-U-M!

I've always been like this. I never liked working out. I just dont do gym, yoga, or whatever else people do to work out. I just dont. I dont know if I have good genes or if IZUMIO is really helping me or what but I'm lucky that at almost 38 years old, I have no health issues despite my unhealthy lifestyle.

Dont get me wrong, I'm not proud of this, I feel quite embarrassed to admit that I dont work out. I'm blessed with good health but it is not something I should take for granted. Health is wealth they say and it is true. A friend of mine from school passed away last year from Lung Cancer. I only knew about it from Facebook when I saw people commenting condolences to her family. I then found out that she was suffering for a good 2 weeks before she passed. Just 2 weeks. Routine check ups and everything else didnt detect her cancer and only in the last 2 weeks of her life, they found that the cancer is already going to take her life away. She left behind a husband and 2 young kids. I didnt know her all that well although we were classmates in school but I cried thinking how fragile life really is. My medical results are all good but it doesn't mean I can take it for granted.

My best friend told me that I am the ONLY person she knows who is not working out or doing something healthy. I felt a punch in the face when she said that because it is true. Even my husband has started working out and going for short jogs, swimming and whatnot. I am just at home, on my computer or working comfortably in my pyjamas all day.

Today, Im inspired to change.

My plan is to start working out. I dont know how, what or when but I'll start doing some research and see where that leads me. I need to take baby steps.
I want to look better and feel better about myself. Yes, I'm vain but it is more than that. I want to feel good. I dont want to feel tired or lack of energy or lazy anymore. I need to change! I want to change.

Wish me luck!

Saving money

I'm broke!

When you earn more, you tend to spend more too. Is it like that with you? That's exactly what is happening with me. I am out of control!

I spent A LOT last month. I think I must have bought the entire Zara or something like that! Now that they have Zara online, my oh my…!

This month, I told myself… "NO SHOPPING" especially at ZARA and no buying unnecessary things.

Here are some of the things I've been doing lately that is making me spend more than I usually do….

1. I've been going to KLCC a lot!

2. I've been eating out a lot. Mostly brunching with girlfriends and school mummies.

3. I've been drinking more Starbucks. I stopped drinking coffee since I was pregnant with my daughter. I will occasionally have a latte every now and then but lately I crave latte ALL THE TIME.

4. I've been buying so many new Essential Oils to explore and this is my latest addiction. I love it so much!!!

5. I'm revamping my wardrobe and I've been shopping A LOT

It is no surprise I am broke. In fact, I'm shocked I'm not bankrupt with the way I'm spending lately. So yah, this has got to stop!!!!

Everytime you tell yourself you got to stop spending, suddenly out of nowhere you HAVE to pay for something or HAVE to buy something …. like oh, I NEED a new bra! You need bras! pfffftttt

Last month, I told myself the same thing. You got to start SAVING money but I didnt do a good job at all. I failed miserably in April because I spent so much. This month, I'm not giving up. I am going to really stop spending.

It is 9th May and I've not been hanging out at any malls. I have not done any online shopping although FashionValet, Zalora and Zara is calling my name, sending me emails after emails to remind me that my shopping cart is on Sale. I've been really good. I've not bought any new clothes yet. Fingers crossed I won't.


I've been eating out A LOT still. Eating out alone is at least RM50 per meal. It just builds up you know. RM50 a meal can be RM150 per day if you eat 3 meals a day outside. This week alone I've had meet ups with friends almost everyday. It's so much fun tho. I love my meet ups with friends. It's so refreshing and a lot of fun. But ok, next week I'll try to be good and stay home and not socialise, which I think I won't have time to anyway because I got to start working on my KupuKupu's raya collection. I will be busy with that thank god!


As for Essential Oils, boy oh boy… I'm just addicted to oils. Today, my friend did a scan on me using this Itovi health and wellness scanner and it's so awesome. This device will sort of scan your body and tells you what you need. This device has sensors that will scan your body and generate personalised wellness evaluations. My friend just got the device and I told her to test me. Scanning takes 2 minutes and you will get an evaluation like this.

It will then tell you what oils you NEED. Good news is, my health and wellness is pretty good. Other than taking my IZUMIO and Super Lutein and my Essential Oils, my lifestyle (especially my food intake) is not very healthy. I was pleasantly surprised that my Itovi readings was pretty good. They gave some suggestions on the oils I needed so as usual, I'm itching to buy the oils they recommended. Argh. But I have a whole collection of oils at home that I still can play with so I'm going to try my best not to buy any this month. Unless I HAVE to. We'll see.


Starbucks? Well, I need to stop drinking so much coffee. That's pretty easy but then I need Milo if I dont drink coffee and Milo 3in1 is probably worse than drinking Latte. #dilemma


Note to self:

1. Stop shopping this month. No buying clothes
2. Cut down on eating out.
3. Dont buy any essential oils this month

Sounds easy enough to do right???

Wish me luck!!!!!

Yeast Bangsar

My husband is away on business trip. We usually do school runs together and sometimes, after morning drop off, we will go for breakfast. Im not a breakfast person (because Im just lazy) but today, I feel like having breakfast on my own, somewhere.


I drove to Bangsar Telawi to this little bistro called Yeast. I've been here once with my husband before but didnt really explore the menu. I had tuna croissant and a cup of hot latte and today, I did the same. Yeast serves proper breakfast, lunch and dinner. All french! I've only been here for breakfast. I can see they have lots of bread, pastries and tarts.


I love this little cafe because it reminds me of those little bistros in Paris. I had a good time enjoying my breakfast this morning. I should do this more often. I love the Yellow flowers they put on our table. It just brightens up my morning totally. In case you dont know, Yellow is my favourite colour.


I didnt order anything fancy. I saw the tarts and wanted to order them but I dont think I'll be able to finish it. I loved the simplicity of this breakfast. Plain tuna croissant with a nice hot latte and I was a happy bunny pretending I was in Paris all by myself. How lovely!

I miss Paris. It is one of my favourite cities in the world but after what happened recently, I dont think I'll be going back there again anytime soon. So I guess, Yeast will do for now.

Hello there!

My son is loving his new school and I think he grew more matured since he entered the big school. He's always a baby in my eyes and I must say I was really worried about him joining the big school. I was worried about all sorts of things but since first day of big school, he's been like a champ. I couldn't be more proud of him. He is really doing well in big school. I think he felt like a big boy and started acting like one too. At one point, he was loving big school so much that he didnt even want to see his old friends anymore. I on the other hand was missing the old school and the people there a lot. I meet up with the moms quite a lot and we have breakfast and talk about the kids, I am still in their school chat group and I know whats happening in the old school just like before. I miss them. We were all very close and tight.

I've been asking my son to go back to the old school for a visit but he doesn't want. I think he feels like he's a big boy now so maybe going back to the old school is a step behind for him. But today, he finishes school at 12.00pm and all of a sudden, he asked if he could go back to see Ms. Rose. I was shocked and excited. I quickly dropped a WA message to ask if it is OK for us to drop by and of course, she said YES!

We were both so excited about going back to see everyone. I wasn't sure who was more excited, me or my son. When we got there, my son spied at the window to look inside and the minute someone saw him, the whole class started screaming his name!! They started jumping around and suddenly, my eyes got teary. I was so emotional.

When we walked in, everyone ran up to us to give us a hug. The kids came over to see my and hug me. They also asked for my daughter. That's how close we all are. Ms Rose was in the toilet when we arrive but as soon as she walked in the room, my son ran over to her and gave her the biggest hug ever. It was so heartwarming and again, this emotional mummy started getting all teary again. I hugged her and I couldn't control myself and tears kept falling down my cheeks.

Why am I so emotional? The kids was so confused looking at me. I had the biggest smile because I was so happy to see them yet I couldn't control my tears. Ms Rose saw and again, she told me that I can come back anytime and gave me another big bear hug. My son was cool, he just blended in like usual and starting playing with his friend. His mom on the other hand, needed time to settle down and stop myself from crying. What the heck?

I blame PMS.

We spent a good 20 - 30 minutes there and it was so much fun. Ms Rose continued with the final part of the lesson by telling them a story and my son joined in. He was so happy and was all smiles.

I didnt realise how much I missed them. Yes we've moved on but they will always be special to me. The teachers, Ms Rose especially was a big part of my life. She was both my kid's teacher when they were younger and I owe a lot to her because I believe my kids are well behaved kids because of her. I also have good relationships with the mummies and the kids because we used to see each other every single day. How time flies…..

We got home and told my daughter about our little visit and next week, she wants to come home early from school to visit Ms Rose and the rest. We'll see….she will probably have to skip few lessons in school but it is ok…. I think she will love seeing everyone more!

Empty

Just like a roller coaster, sometimes you are up and sometimes you are down. Right now, I am feeling a bit down. Its strange that despite all the noise at home, I can feel empty.

I wonder if this is normal? I think it is. I think I need to do some soul searching. I kind of think I know why I feel this way. I know I need to bring myself closer to God and I still haven't found my "calling" yet. I had a discussion about being more spiritual with a friend and we both agree that it is THE WAY TO GO. Still, I am here….

Any tips?

Fighting bugs!

It started about over a month ago when I got bitten by some kind of bug. I have super duper sensitive skin. Even from young, my oldest memory is trips after trips to dermatologist because of my skin problems. I was allergic to chicken. No KFC for the longest time. I remember my dad would lie and say KFC is closed, KFC is not making chicken today and all sorts of excuses to prevent me from going. I get toys from KFC a lot as a kid but I never got to eat the chicken because as soon as I eat them, I would have to make a trip to Dr. Sachdev on Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman. I still remember it! So ya, I have very sensitive skin.

Somehow, I dont know how and why, I could eat KFC again. I guess maybe after awhile my body doesn't reject it anymore. My skin got better when I was a teenager and no more skin problems. Alhamdulillah. I stopped going to Skin Specialist after I became a teenager. My skin got better but I still have sensitive skin. My scars would stay with me for years if I had a mosquito bite and stuff like that. For some odd reason, mosquitos love to bite me instead of people around me. I'd be at the park and no one else will get a mosquito bite except me and I'll end up scratching like a monkey. The spot will get so bad that the scars will stay for years. Literally. No vitamin E can help the scars.

I remember as a teenager I never would wear skirts or dresses because I had so many spots on my legs that I want to cover. Im not a dress person anyway, no issue there!

Once every few years, some insect or bug will bite me and the scar will stay for years. I haven't had them in a while but last month, I got bitten again! It has been a while so I forgot how annoying and irritating and itchy it is. Normally, when this happens, I will need to go to a dermatologist but so far, for as long as I can remember, no medicine, cream can help the itch and get rid of it. I will usually have to wait till the cycle is over for it to be over. No short cuts. In a way, dont need to waste money because nothing will help. I've gone to many doctors and ya, no shortcuts.

When I got this bite last month, I was cursing so much because it is really THAT annoying. The itch is a crazy kind of it that you need to constantly scratch it like 24 hours. By doing that, I will obviously bruise the skin and infect it probably. It usually takes about 2 weeks or so for it to totally go away. Then I just have to live with the scars for a few years.

This time, I tried the natural route and used my Young Living oils. It helps relieve the itch a tiny bit but like I said, nothing will help. I tried different recipes and different oils and alhamdulillah it helps a little.
2 weeks past and it is over. Or so I thought!
But I got more and more and more bites.

Normally, I'll get about 5-8 spots in one go. That 8 scars to deal with at the most. But this time, I've got a total of over 30 spots because this insect is still around me. I usually get bitten like when I go on holiday or something so by the time we leave, the insects or bug is gone but this time, it looks like it is in my house!!!!!! God Help ME!!!!!

For some strange reason, it is not biting anyone else but me!

I've been tolerating this for about a month or so now. I keep getting new spots that means this bugger bitting me is here…. at home! And it is only after my blood! Which makes total sense because my blood is different from anyone in my house!
ARGH!!!!

HELP!!!!!!!

Its not bedbugs because it is just not. I couldn't see anything. But one day,I caught the damn thing as it was sucking the blood out of me! BASTARD!!!!
It is the size of an ant and it is black. I tried to kill it but it flew away.

Yesterday I called Rentokil to come and inspect the house and they say they couldn't find anything and suggested we do this treatment that will kill EVERYTHING. Argh. No guarantee it will help but thats the only thing I can try.

I am full of scars and itching like crazy. I refuse to eat antihistamine but I did a few times when I feel like it is too much. It is so itchy it is disturbing my sleep. I dont know what else to do. I feel like moving out!!!

Healthy Kids, Happy Mummy

Touch wood, my kids are pretty healthy kids. Alhamdulillah for that because I am not that good at looking after sick people, let alone sick children. I get all stressed out and get worried easily. Alhamdulillah. Alhamdulillah. Alhamdulillah for my children's good health thus far.

Last week, my nephew was admitted due to some flu. I stopped reading about it ..is it H7N9 now or something like that? I remember when it was H1N1. Now it is already H7N9. What in the world! I can't stress enough about how important it is to build our immune system to fight against all this.

No matter how many times you wash your hands, or ask your kids to wash their hands…they will still get sick. Unless you can wrap them in a bubble and prevent them from being outside with other children. It is impossible for school going kids, especially the young ones to NOT fall sick. In a way, their body is learning to fight and get to know all the germs, bacteria and whatever else out there so dont feel bad whenever they're not well. The most important thing is, build their immune system so they can fight it. My kids get sick too sometimes. People will ask "How come your kids are on IZUMIO and still fall sick?" Of course they still fall sick too sometimes BUT they recover very fast and often without any medication. You can ask their Paed, Dr Lam how many times have we visited him in the last 2 years since we started our IZUMIO journey. He will definitely tell you we dont see him much anymore.

Before we were introduced to IZUMIO, we used to see Dr. Lam at least every other month. That's a true story. We used to wait for hours to see him. But now, we dont anymore. I will take my kids to see him if they dont recover after 3 days but so far, they've been OK (touchwood) and visiting Dr. Lam is not needed. I usually give myself about 3 days to treat my kids naturally first before giving them any sort of medicines. They dont like taking medicines and will usually listen to me when I up their IZUMIO and Super Lutein dosage when they're not feeling well because they know they rather drink and take that rather than taking meds.



Occasionally, my kids will catch a cold or a flu or fever and so far, alhamdulillah I have managed to get them better without any antibiotics or paracetamol or cough medicines. It has been a while since the last trip to see Dr. Lam. I still get nervous whenever they are down with fever because I dont know what it is that is causing them to fall sick but each time, my immune booster will come to the rescue. This is what I do for my own kids and I just want to share with you out there….

What is my ultimate immune booster?
The minute I feel like their immunity is low, this is how it will be….
I will see signs like low appetite, they're not jumping around like usual (less active) or in my kid's case they become super clingy (they want to hug me or just want me to sit next to them). Those to me are signs that they are getting weaker. I usually dont really need to use the thermometer before I start treating them because I know straight away when they're getting weaker. I dont wait until fever comes to give them more IZUMIO.

For my daughter, she loves drinking water so I give her lots of IZUMIO when I see the signs. When she has fever, I will give her up to 5 packets a day and so far, alhamdulillah, fever has never lasted for more than 24 hours. I will also give her 2-3 Super Lutein with every packet of IZUMIO.

My son doesn't really like drinking water. He will drink when he is thirsty but he is more of a Super Lutein person so for my son, instead of giving 5 packets of IZUMIO, I will just give him maybe 2-3 packets that day but I will give him Super Lutein to chew all day. He loves the taste and can chew all day. Every hour 2-3 capsules. I've given him maybe 15-20 capsules a day. Also with him, fever has never lasted for more than 24 hours.

Now that I started oiling with Young Living, I noticed that the oils work really well with IZUMIO and Super Lutein. I apply Thieves Essential Oil on their feet and chest. Thieves is a "hot"oil so it is important to dilute it if you want to apply on the chest. For the feet, I usually apply neat but if you are worried, please dilute with a carrier oil like olive oil or vegetable oil. I use coconut oil if I need to dilute.  I also apply R.C essential oil and Raven depending if I need to or not. R.C and Raven is good for coughs, colds, stuffy nose, viral infection. At night, without fail (whether they are sick or not) I will diffuse essential oils depending on my mood that night. If I feel like I want to relax, I will diffuse Lavender and Peppermint (my favourite combination) but if they're not well, I will diffuse Thieves, Purification, R.C and Raven (Not all together but separately).

So far, this has worked for me. I find that by giving my kids IZUMIO, they recover without medication but by giving them IZUMIO AND putting oils on them, they recover without medication quicker. I need less IZUMIO to treat them and they recover very fast. Awesome right? I used to give 5 packets a day during fever for about 2 days but now I just need 3 packets a day with oils. Most important thing is, it is all NATURAL.

If you are looking to boost up your child's immunity, come and get in touch with me. I know this so well because it has worked for my kids for the past 2 years. Please note that it is the molecular hydrogen in IZUMIO that heals. I know there are other brands out there but I'm not familiar with other brands. Feel free to test and try but for me, I know what works and I'll stick to it. Same goes with Super Lutein and Young Living oils. There are other brands out there…but I can't say they work better or as well as the brands I use because I only know what I know.

New Pet

I'm not a pet person. I like to look at cats and rabbits and all but I dont like to have a pet. I never had a pet growing up because my mum dont like animals in the house. I remember when I was a kid, I begged my dad for a persian cat and he would promise to get it for me but never did (probably because my mum won't have it). I am definitely not a pet person because of my mum. She won't go near animals. She's scared and geli.

My husband on the other hand is more of a pet person. He loves animals and likes playing with them but he is also not a pet person because he gets bored easily. He doesn't like the smell. Even if I cook and the house smells of food, he will make noise and air everything out. So having a pet is usually temporary urge because he likes animals but give it a month he will want to get rid of them. 

1. He bought a sugar glider once and he was obsessed with it for a while, then one day, he got bored of it and just left it outside (he still give it food and all) and we forgot there was fogging that day and he forgot to bring the sugar glider in while we were out. When we came home, it was dead. 

2. We bought fishes (cuz he wanted to have them) and after awhile, he got sick and tired of cleaning it. He will complain the smell and whatever else and soon, fish died. 

3. We had hamsters too. It too died.

4. Zoe. He was the one who agreed to keep Zoe (our tuition teacher wanted to adopt it!) but now, he is itching to give it away because he hates it that outside of our house smells of cat. I can't smell anything but he can. 

Today, I dont know how..he gave my daughter the idea to go to the petshop in Atria.

Look what happened!!!!

We came home with 2 hamsters. I was so angry. I ignored all of them (him and my kids) because I know this is all temporary. They'll all get bored of it and then I'll be the one stressing bout the food and I'll have to nag about cleaning the cage and whatnot (because I won't go near!). I won't go near it because I hate pets and from the start I will tell them I won't have anything to do with this but I always end up kesianning the pets.

Like Zoe. My kids are still obsessed with Zoe but my husband is over it. I'll be the one to remind my maid to give food to Zoe and if we run out of food, I'll be the one making food for the cat. WTH!!!

Argh.

We have hamsters now. H-A-M-S-T-E-R-S

kill me now!

Renewing Business Registration

Every year I will go to the nearest Bank Simpanan Nasional to get my business registration renewed. It's just up the road and very near me. But parking is a problem there and I usually need to be there at least 4 times before the "system" can be up. Normally "System is down". It annoys the crap out of me. It is easier to go get it done at SSM but it is not that near and again, parking is shit over there too.

Today, I have some stuff to do at the SSM office. I decided to get my business registration renewal done too although it is not expiring until next month. Someone mentioned to me that it is so easy to get it done at the SSM. The machine is so quick and easy to use.

I was at the SSM with my husband and we were meeting up with our business partners. Perfect timing too because I can just renew my business registration there. My husband told me to get it done upstairs but I insisted on using the machine. He didnt understand why I wanted to use the machine instead of queuing up. I told him I prefer dealing with machines than human. LOL.

While he was having his cigarette (I know! He still hasn't stopped smoking!) he told me to quickly go get my stuff done before our partners arrive. I renewed my business registration using the machine and took me literally 5 minutes to get everything done. WOW. Superb!!! I dont even have to bring anything but my IC. I was so impressed and jakun. Awesome! They even give perfect change. I had to pay RM70.60 for 1 year renewal and I gave RM100 because I didnt have small change. The instructions on the machine did say to give the correct amount. I thought they were gonna telan my balance but they gave me the correct amount back.

Next year I'm just going to get my husband to drive me there and he can wait in the car for 5 minutes while I get my renewal done.

I love machines like this. So convenient. They should put this machines at banks or in a shopping malls.
