Noah had his first icecream, he didnt like it. Perhaps it was too cold. It was so funny that the little girl licked the cake when we were not watching. I only saw it after in our camcorder, while I was telling her mom how to use the camcorder, she licked it and she was caught on the video!
Noah loves the balloons. He was so happy playing with them, spent so much time with them. It was a good investment. I just need to get him balloons for his birthdays next time. I got really tired by the end of the day, and i didnt get much sleep for a couple days. Only 1 more birthday party to go and I will get my rest, hopefully.
My aunt is coming tomorrow. I'm so excited and happy that they are coming. It's so nice of them to come all the way here to celebrate Noah's birthday. The weather is so crappy, yet so many people are coming. Noah's a lucky boy.

I am feeling depressed. The weather did the job. And Cathay Pacific (CX) emailed me about their promotion. IT's $500 cheaper now than before. I was really tempted to buy the ticket and just fly back to the warmer weather. But it won't work. Hubby wouldn't let me. Noah will have a fit in the aircraft, it's 15+5 hours flight, and 2.5 hours for transit. It will not happen.. but I really wish to escape from here.
Only 2 more days until Noah's birthday. Haven't got any motivation at all. All gloomy and dark outside.. and inside. I'm going to take Noah to school, so somebody can watch him while I go get his brithday cake tomorrow.. Hope everything goes well. There's so much to do yet I feel like doing nothing at all. Hubby please come home quick...

9 it looks like turnip with potato skin).
I spent the weekend cleaning, mopping, wiping, dusting... doing laundry.. really tired now. I am so upset that hubby is going away when I needed him most, well I need him most of the time but I need him now, before the parties, well at least he is gonna be back for his birthday.
I hate waking up at 6 am in the morning, and I usually couldn't sleep until 1 am, so I will be very sleep deprieved. I will try to sleep, or have to sleep whenever I can. Can you believe, that one year has come and gone.. last year, this time I lost my mucous plug and was expecting anytime. This year this time, I am busy planning for his birthday.
Whatever it is, I really hope that this year will be a better year, not that last year wasn't good, it was just really tough. I had to spend Christmas in the hospital, and was so so tired and so emotional.. (I actually cried and didn't want to see anybody then). Well, on the bright side, I get to see Christmas carol. I have never seen one in my life, and that is a great experience indeed. Good work to those who vonlunteered and sing Christmas carol and cheer patients in the hospital. It was really a good job.

I think I will have to return some really soon. Some are for my mom, some for my friend, but I still have way too many. The good thing about the shopping policy here is you can return them anytime. I bought 5 shirts for my bro and he only wanted 2, so I returned the shirts but unfortunately it was over 30 days so they gave me merchandise credit.. the more reason to go back and shop, and another reason I have less $ in my bank... sigh.
Noah's birthday is coming pretty soon.. and I ordered/bought him 9 helium balloons cost $20.34. Another impulsive behaviour. I really hate myself for not thinking twice and not able to decide... and I like everything.. so in the end I had to get everything. I really think I should stop spending because I have no more income coming in. I've already tender my resignation letter.. perhaps I'll have to work part time or something or I will never get to shop again... don't ask me about hubby giving me money because I've never asked anybody for money in my life. I make my own money and spend my own money.. that's how it is.. and will always be.

We went to another party afterthat. Noah's buddy TJ, having his first birthday. They actually had a roast pig for the dinner! It was so huge that you can feed the village.. or the street. It was pretty good, and they had a fancy birthday cake. The more stress for me to make Noah's birthday as good.
Noah's birthday is coming up soon. Can't believe he's almost one! I'm trying to wean him off, but at the same time I might miss nursing him. He's teething again, number 4 and 5 coming out pretty soon. He was so whiney yesterday I had to sleep with him. I haven't been sleeping well lately for the record. I don't know why but I just couldn't sleep. Perhaps I'm too excited for everything, Xmas is coming, Noah's birthday parties, shopping .. and everything else.
I have to divide Noah's birthday party into 2 days because I was worried that I can't manage having too many people in the house. So his buddies are coming on Thursday, and families come on Saturday. That way we can spend more quality time together. Hopefully it goes well, I have so many preparation to do that I had to start baking earlier this year.. I'm afraid I'll be too busy later... less time on FB.
I feel like FB is like a big Vacuum or a magnet...something like that, I'm always getting sucked into it. Sigh. I tried hard not to play the games but it does help release my stress.. when my little boy is not pulling my pants. I can hardly do anything because he pulls my pants all the time. sigh...

I got bitten by Noah today. He's got 3 teeth now, and forth one halfway. This little guy sure has some big attitude. The picture is quite faint, but it's there. I was feeding him and lately he likes to grab the spoon and feed himself. I tried to get it back and I got bitten!It was painful at that time, and shocking too. What a lil' brat!
Noah's walking with his walker, and he will try to walk on anything that moves. He will grab your pants and try to walk. He will hold on to anything to stand. He jsut won't stop moving. Sometimes I don't know to laugh or get mad at him... he is just so silly... and his latest favourite toy? POTATO!
I'll have to post some pictures next time. Daddy got a bag of potatoes, and he has been playing with his 'toys'. I always find his 'toys' in unexpected places, in my bag, in the shoes, in his dirty laundry, behind the radio, just about anywhere he can reach. He is surely keeping mommy busy!

I got a flu shot on the way out, after I saw a big sign " Flu shot available" . It's the flu season again, and I thought it was a good idea to get the shot since I was already there. To cut it short.. after spending so much time.. getting the medical attention needed... I feel sicker than before. My wrist still hurts, my arm is sore from the shot.. and my throat is getting sore.. and I got runny nose.. and the flu shot is suppose to help? I guess not, how irony?
If I m still in malaysia, there'll be probably some chinese doctor that can help massage and make it better.. but here, everything depends on yourself, you have to heal by yourself. There's nothing to make it better. Sigh.. loudly.
I'm just going to rest, hopefully.. I can get some rest.

My MIL was encouraging me to do something, take a course or something, or if I am to take a course, I would prefer to go back to work, at least I can make $ and not spend more $. I'm not sure if I should go back and work once a week, or something.. but at the same time I feel unappreciated to be working there, although I do enjoy working...but on the other hand.. I do not get paid much... see how it goes back and forth.. the advantages ..and disadvantages..
I guess I will just have to hand in my resignation.. it's almost 47 weeks already! Time flies. I'll have to start planning for Noah's birthday party soon.. Who's coming?
We bought lots of candies ( Cadbury chocolate) and Doritos chips, it's my favourite. Hubby said to get the good stuff, in case if we have leftover we will eat it, not to give away crappy stuff like most of other people does. Last year we didn't get as many kids because of the flu. Hopefully this year we get to see more kids around.
Here's and ad from Doritos, it's kinda cool, you can scroll 360 degrees.. how fancy

Anyway, my brother was trying to sell his stuff... and then he got this email from Katy Perry from UK, asking about the cost to send to her. She sounded interested, and then asked for whatever else that he's got.. and she wanted all the items! And what's strange was, she asked to be sent to Nigeria. It sounds so fishy, and my brother told me it's a scam. They have been doing this kinda thing lately, and then somewhere in between the items will be lost, you don't get paid, and might even have to pay for the lost item.
For those who are selling things online, beware of this kinda situation. I got tempted into buying things online the other day. I bought a pair of angel wings for Noah, hoping it will be here before Halloween, but I don't think it will be in time for it. I also bought devil horn (LED lights) and an ugly mask. I regreted buying them now. I found better deals at the store here, they were 75% off! And those items will not be here for Halloween this year :(
No more buying stuff online.. or even selling..

I have a friend who deactivated her Fb, but recently reactivated again. I think by limiting the viewers, it will be better than deactivating it. Why do you wanna deactivate because you have too many friends in your list? Just put them all in your limited profile so they can't bother your real life.

I hate waiting. I'm waiting for the result of the Zeller's Babyface Contest. I entered Noah, just to try if he can actually win something since everybody told me he is such a doll. It will be good if he can actually win something. Results should be last Wednesday, but well, I'm still waiting.
I'm still waiting. I'm waiting for my Priority Club, "Anywhere Challenge" guess the picture game contest (https://challenge.priorityclub.com/?cm_mmc=DCE-_-PCR-HOTELANYW-20100908-_-CAEN-_-body-cta-1). It was fun, but it's only for US, UK and Canada's resident. Some people got too serious in this game.. It's just nice to take it easy.. I've won several times weeks before, and I haven't got my points yet.. I'm waiting.
I'm waiting for another hour. We go to school everyday, and we usually go to library today, but there's 2 people who wants to join us at the school this morning. I called them at 850 and they said they can't get ready until 10. I guess not everybody can get ready as fast I do. So now I'm waiting.. taking my own sweet time.. waiting .. and waiting .. and waiting.

It's really not very easy to handle this mischievous lil' boy. He is always on the move. Lately, he likes to pretend running (crawling) away from mommy or daddy when we pretended to chase him. His silliness always makes mommy forgets about everything else, well how can anyone stay mad at him at all?

I used to be a very messy person. Well, nobody taught me how to be organized, until I met hubby. He was a super tidy person, he believes in 'fengshui'. Have to be decluttered to have good 'chi' around the house, that was what he told me.
I still hate cleaning anything, but I'm doing better at it, with hubby's encouragements, and for my little precious darling's health sake, which is a big motivation for me to keep cleaning up everytime after he mess it up again. I guess little Noah likes to be messy too.. or he just loves to see me cleaning again and again... picking everything after he mess it up.

I was a little disappointed because I was expecting to see more stuff as it was before in April. It started at 9am but people went as early as 7am! (They still had to wait tho'). It's not like Noah need more toys (he already have 3 rooms full of toys, from his cousins), but mommy just like going shopping.
We got him a lil' aeroplane(bike), a sleigh for the winter (he really likes it, and was crying when I took him out of it), a white dress shirt for his coming baptism next month, a Toronto Maple Leaf jersey (only because they have been winning the games lately), a laptop (because he always wants to play with the computer, now he got his own), flashcards, alphabet mat, 5 bowls and 5 plates... Guess how much I spent for all that? Only $36.50!
We went to the mall later and saw the same sleigh.. a brand new one cost $34.99+13%tax! I guess we got a very good deal. I don't really want to spend too much on kids stuff cos they grow up so fast and they don't really use all the things as much.. so gently used stuff are good enough, and it's just a fraction of the brand new item's price.
Noah was so happy playing with all his new toys ( only educational toys), it was well worth it. Well, happy 10th birthday!

I can't resist myself from going back to the store. I know I know... I have way more bags than I should, but if you are in my situation ( provided you love to shop and love bargains) you will do the same.
Guess how much I paid for those bags? They are just about $80-90 each!! What a bargain right! Retailed at $358... $80 is only like 20% of the original price. I got into this temptation of buying cheap "damaged" items ever since I bought the first, white bag(above). It was suppose to have markings on it.. and I managed to wipe it off and it looked brand new! I went back today and got the other one.. suppose to have scratching/markings on it too.. but it's hardly noticeable.. and I saved 80% off the original price!!
They are not really damaged, with broken handles, spoiled zipper or anything big deal.. a scratch or two that I will get sooner or later.. and I saved a bunch because of a tiny little wipe-able marking.. I am so happpppppppppppppppeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee :)
