A Perfectly Lazy Morning

... for a perfectly lazy breakfast  :)

Sliced banana on buttered toasts, cofee, lappy. Bliss.
P/S Thanks Vicky and Essie for a great time last night! The subs and Daiso are better and fun-ner with you guys around!

I Still Love You. Like, For Real.

Dear blog, I’m not gonna say sorry to you because I’ve abandoned you for more than a month, again. I guess the art of follow-through is really not my thing. In fact, I owe my future generation the biggest sorry because well, in a way, this is for them, you know, when they need to do a story or karangan about their (great/great/great/grand/) parents mama, at least there’s a point of reference here. I do sincerely hope the words “hot”, “witty”, “elegant”, "smart", “an all around total kick-ass” would appear in their write-up(s). But oh well!

My silly bambi has turned 5 months 6 days old today! And if you keep tab with my facebook, you’d be informed that last Sunday she did her first turn. I am, of course more than proud with her achievement. It took her a couple of days to get to the stunt, because she just couldn’t get her left arm out from under her chest; I guess the fact that she’s a little too chubby contributed to the agony. But now, she’d turn over at will, faster than you can refresh your page.

I took many videos.

Two nights ago, all three of us visited little Theodora, but baby Theo was fast asleep and the sight of a teeny tiny little bundle brought back fond memories and urges. To think that it has been only 5 months ago Frappy was that size and totally fragile; ahh, time o time, why do you fly by so quickly?

And baby Theo’s mama has engaged the confinement aunty who took care of me and Frappy to help her out. Something struck Frappy’s funny bone and she couldn’t stop laughing the minute the aunty started playing with her. All she needed to do was to just lock eyes with her, and Frappy’d go crazy laughing the roof down, it’s as if she’s reunited with her mother! It was really entertaining, to see her laughed herself out of breath.

Naturally, we took many videos, too.

When the time came to bid farewell, the aunty was so fond of Frappy that she, a so-called ex-employee, gave Frappy an ang pau. We were really touched with her generosity and the love she has for children. There’s a difference, confinement ladies/domestic helpers who work with passion and love, and people who work just because it’s their job. This one, is a keeper.

Disaster struck when we reached home. All videos and pictures taken with my much loved Nokia XpressMusic 5800 for the past 10 days were gone. No notice, no signs. Just disappeared as if they’ve never existed. I’ve looked in every nook and cranny of the phone, but they’ve gone without saying goodbye. I was, still am, devastated. But I’m now much calmer, thank you, constantly quoting Taio Cruz’ Dynamite lyrics (although I do heart Mike Tompkin’s cover version better):

I throw my hands up in the air sometimes
Saying AYO!
Gotta let go!
I wanna celebrate and live my life
Saying AYO!
Baby, let's go!

Reminding myself there’s much more than crying over lost videos, as heartbreaking as it is. Haiks.

But yeah, gotta let go.

Oh by the way, I’ve been a useful member of the household lately by bringing in my share of income. I’m tutoring a Korean guy. All I need to do is just talk to him and help him practice his English. It’s quite fun, when the students are responsive, instead of just kayu-ing there. Anyway, he just can’t get the word seafood right, he’d go cheeput all the way. This happened with my previous Korean student too. Hmm, gotta dig deeper into this phenomenon, and find ways to straighten them up, uh, in an English-speaking kinda way (hello? Laugh? Are my jokes that lame? -_-)

Ooo! And by the very way, my sister’s getting married this weekend oh yeah babay (uh, and next weekend, too. It’s a Chinese thing. Anyway!) and I’ve finally found my dress! It’s a bcbgmaxazria number and although I can get some used to the strong colours, but I do love it nonetheless – tube-topped chiffon maxi dress. Totally light-weight, totally goddessy. Argh, you have no idea how difficult it is to get a decent dress that oozes “me”. What’s with today’s boutiques??? I’m gonna straighten this problem out too, you just wait and see.

Now, should I also be wearing the same dress next month to Deepa’s wedding too? Wait. Am I invited? Erm… I don’t think I dreamt up receiving the invitation card now… it must be somewhere. Anyway, 1 dress 2 weddings?! Hmm! Decisions, decisions, decisions! Life is tough (and so is updating you)! Haiks.

Woops! Frappy’s up and uh, talking to herself! Haha! Gotta go. You stay alive ok (HAHA!)? I’ll be back with more, soon, erm, hopefully, yeah. Ok. Ta. XOXO.
