Better Year Ahead

2013 had been a turbulent year for me and I lost 5 kg within 6 months! For the days that lie ahead, I promise myself that I must work harder to make our "project" a success  but never ever forget to pamper and love myself more.

The gardening stand hubby bought for me months ago can  finally put into good use.


                                             My baby sawi sprouting!  

One tiny little okra seedling showing its shy appearance on the far bottom right. Yeah!

My 2nd batch of corn seedlings starts to show up and say, Hi World! :)

After gardening, I made myself a bowl of Korean Shin Ramyun gourmet spicy noodles for breakfast. Hubby bought it during a Korean food fair. Yummeh!!

Okay, time to get down to business.

A Beautiful Day

I woke up this morning feeling refreshed and couldn't wait to accomplish some of the tasks that have been playing in my mind but did not have the energy to execute.  Self reminder to self again: Health Is Wealth!  

I made a mini American breakfast for the boy, 2 sausages, 2 eggs, 2 toasted bread spread with peanut butter and butter and a cup of hot Milo.  I just love to see his face expression the moment he walks down after bath and sees his "sumptuous" breakfast laid out on the dining table.  Needless to say,he walloped everything I prepared for him and off he went to school with a full stomach and a cheery mood. My "easy to please" boy. Hehehehe....

I had an hour doing gardening before hanging out the laundry.  My corn patch is ready!  The ABC soup was already boiling on the stove, rice washed and wax sausages in the steamer and i will only have to press the "ON" switch before going out to fetch the boy later and stir fry one vege dish when we get home and tadaa.. Lunch is ready. Now I better move my butt out of the sofa and get some serious tasks done.  Need to bake a batch of cinnamon rolls this evening for the hubs to take to his office tomorrow.   What a beautiful day!

Love Myself More

Again, I made 4 slices of French toast for breakfast this morning and the boy finished them all and downed a cup of soya bean milk.  In the car on our way to his school, he suddenly remembered and asked me: What are you gonna eat for breakfast, mom? You asked me to finish it ( the french toast) all?  He then put his palm on my forehead to check for temperature.  I have been under the weather for 3 days.  No temperature but make sure you eat when you get home ya, he said.  Awww... 

He is in the top class again this year and came home with piles of homework since day one, brought home 7 yesterday which he started doing from 3pm and only managed to finish all just before the clock struck 7pm!

He has started tuition this year, only for Chinese subject while for the rest of the subjects, tutor mommy will still be the one in-charge.

We both love our new routine i.e. start and end our day early.  I have so much to do but my body health is holding me back.  Self Reminder: The top priority in my must do list: LOVE MYSELF MORE.

First Day Of School 2014

This year marks the first year of morning school for the boy after 4 years in the primary school.  We had a good start in the morning.  I got up at 5.58am just before my alarm set off.  The boy bounced up of bed on my first wake up call to him.  After his bath, he came down and walloped 4 slices of French toast I made for brekkie coupled with a cup of Milo.  We even had time for a 10 mins' chat before heading to school.  

Traffic at the school was heavy but bearable.  I dropped him off at the school gate and headed back home to do my gardening.  After breakfast, I washed a load of laundry, swept and mopped the floor and still have time to catch up reading my novel and Fb updates before hanging out the laundry and then it's time to prepare lunch.

I cooked spaghetti with carbonara sauce for lunch and also made the boy's favourite mashed potatoes. Headed out to fetch the boy at 12.10pm and traffic at the school was horrendous!  The school kids came out from all directions and I had no idea which gate he was coming out from.  The weather was scorching hot and without an umbrella with me, I felt  I was melting away under the hot sun! Spotted the boy finally after 20 minutes.  The traffic then was worse, almost to a standstill! Bumped into a friend while walking to our car parked 500 metres away.  Her car was still crawling with her two kids in the afternoon session in the car and it was 25 mins past the supposedly afternoon school starting time! Crazy! 

We got home finally and the boy had two bowls of mashed potatoes, one big plate of carbonara spaghetti and one mango for lunch.  How not to become chubby eating like that huh but I like his healthy appetite and enjoy seeing him eat!  Ahahaha...  

After lunch, we took a break before he started on his homework.  He told me he has very mean teachers this year, especially the Maths teacher! She set out rules of do's and dont's and stressed that whoever against the rules "就死定"!(will sure die)!
After finishing the line, he turned to me with a wicked look on his face and asked, mom, do you think it's good or bad news knowing very well what my reply would have been.  The mom said, GOOD NEWS, of course!  I like the teacher already! He gave me a killer stare followed by a long sigh..  Hahaaha... I have one subject down and can put more focus on other subjects. I know him too well, he works best under pressure. His performance is tip top when he gets good (mean) teachers.  Wuahahaha.... Bad mommy here. :D End of report.
