Mommy Day!

Sorry guys, been pretty tied these past week. Let's just blame work and also I have been just too tired for anything lately. I don't go around vomitting and my appetite is pretty great, so sometimes I forget that I am already 12 weeks pregnant. It seems that even after a long nap, I still feel tired and my time is spent mostly on sleeping and sleeping and more sleeping. So, that kinda took away my time for blogging. (Excuses, excuses.. heh heh heh)

Anywho, Happy Mommy's Day! It's still not too late, right? I came home last Saturday to a glowing 4-year old who immediately started to frantically search for something in the living room, whilst yelling out to her bibik, "Flower Card.. Mana flower card, bibik?" She then looked at me desperately, almost at the brink of tears.. "My bibik doesn't understand me, mom.."

I already knew that she wanted to give me the "secret" card she's been hiding from me since Friday. Tomorrow is Mother's Day and she simply wanted to get me her card... I told Parmi (the bibik) what Khadra was looking for and she took the cards out of hiding. Khadra presented to me both the cards and beamed when she said, "Happy Mother's Day, mommy! We made this for you. " I hugged her tight and she said,"I love you, mom. You're the best mother in the world!" (Khadra also proclaimed, "I am the coolest kid in the world!" but that is besides the point, lah) So, yeah. I had a good mother's day. What more could you ask for, huh?

Lotion Commotion

I have this thing about finishing something completely before opening up a new package. For example, I try to finish up (till the very last drop of) my shower gel. Then, I'll open up the cap and add some water in the bottle to dissolve the remaining 'usable' portion. And one last shower with the diluted and soapy shower gel before I finally toss the whole thing into the wastepaper basket conveniently located in my bathroom. Aaahh.. Another well-used toiletries item. Good till the last drop! *literally* Then, and only then will I open up the stocked replacement of the said toiletries item.

It just so happens that I was looking out for lotions to smother on my bulging belly to avoid the unsightly stretchmarks and to my surprise, I gathered the following:

AAAARRRGGGHHHH! 8 containers of lotions of varied brands, textures and degree of 'finish'ness. All opened, none finished. Double AAAARRRGGGHHHH! It contradicts all that I have been so anal about!

We have (from far left, going clockwise) : Boots' ante-natal massage cream, Marks & Spencer's Waterlily Hand and Body Lotion, The Body Shop's Soya Dry Oil Mist, The Body Shop's Almond & Honey Body Lotion, The Body Shop's Honey Body Butter, The Body Shop's White Musk Moisturizing Satin Spray, The Body Shop's Cocoa Butter Mosturizing Stick and lastly, The Body Shop's Vitamin C Stimulating Body Smoother. The thing is, some of these have been in my keeping since 3 years back --> cue the ante-natal massage cream. :( I wonder if they are still good to be used. As long as it smells OK and I don't get rashes over it, I'll just use it, lah. And this time, I'd better finish it!

Excuse me while I strategize on which one to finish up first and that sweet smelling Strawberry Body Butter from The Body Shop would have to wait until ALL these are gone! Sheesh!

*updated* Just discovered three more bottles of lotion located in my office, hubby's office and in my bathroom!

A Big Breakfast, A Blind Date and A New Phone

The April meet-up of the Sri Petaling clan took place at Kiwi Cafe (again!) last Friday and the turnout was rather lukewarm. The ever faithful Johan and Rizal Shafie were first on scene , along with newbie Azida Roselay. Later came Intan and me, and much much later Idham aka Eddie and Izham turned up. We were such regulars at the place that the Burmese waiter gave us a keychain each halfway through the meeting. Don't ask me why, I don't have a clue either. Responding to the dwindling number of turnout, it was decided that:

1. A Big Breakfast event will be held at La Bodega Jalan Telawi (uuuuu... so posh!) on 12th May 2007 at 10.30am. Please RSVP ASAP! So far, I have Aida and Reza Zin committing already! :) The rest of you in my calling list will be bombarded with more smses and follow up calls. You have been warned!

2. A do will happen at Azida's mom's happening Puteri Penchala for either a BBQ or a proper makan-makan. Details of event to be decided.

Oh, did I tell you that we already have a yahoogroup for the clan called gembeling87? Yup, jangan tak percaya.. So, through this channel, friends hook up once more or so, I thought. There was this one particular soul , whom we shall call AI henceforth, announcing, "Hey guys, I am with Daimler-Chrysler" and a sudden lightbulb moment appeared in my mind! Wow, she's working in the same building as I , so I should say hi! Maybe, have lunch at the food court or something. However, I could not for the life of me figure out who this person really was. Then, Nadia replied saying how she remembers her well... Her sister is Kak Joan.. yada, yada, yada.. Hmmm, I thought. Let's just be nice and ask her out for lunch, lah.. So, we have lunch set for sometime next week, and the next e-mail was from Eddie saying how he always terserempak AI at the SS14 mosque for Jumaat prayers. What? AI is a MAN? What have I gotten myself into?? Tak pasal aje aku ada blind date ni.. heh heh heh.. I think I'll have to invite more people to join the lunch. (Ah Seng, you up for it?)

So, the meet-up was cut short past 12 midnight after I got a phone call from my darling hubby. Sent off Azida and the rest of the guys stayed on until 2am.

No wonder he was anxious. When I got back, a card with my name on it was waiting for me at the vanity chest. Kad apa pulak ni? It was our 10th year anniversary as bf-gf and I didn't even remember.. heh heh heh So, I walked out sheepishly and thanked him for the card. Malu I... but, it didn't end there. He took out a box from my lingerie drawer and it was a brand new phone - the N73 Music Edition. Ahhhh... Aku terkedu..

How's that for a surprise?
