Back from writer's block

(SEDCO sports 4x100 relay)

(Family portrait at Nexus)

(SBPS silver Jubilee)

(Tawau Juara Rakyat)

(Yesterday at Majlis Tilawah Quran Peringkat Nasional)

My finger's froze for a full minute on this keyboard wondering how to start..many great moments and thoughts to discoveries..lesson learnt..sights seen..but it will come for now..I am just simply thankful that I am still here, still smiling, well, happy, a little wiser, a little foolish and basically enjoying life.

Farm-filled New Year!!

Had a fantastic family road trip to Keningau..a convoy via Tambunan Road,singgah sebentar and let the kids loose at the lake to feed the giagantic fishes and do some boat paddling. Ada yang mandi sungai lagi and run ulang-alik across the jambatan gantung. Highlight of the trip to Keningau is to visit Datuk Yap's cattle farm and we like to call it his mini zoo..and the story goes in random order..

1st stop upon arrival..this is a newborn calf birthday 31st Dec 2009.
Bersih kan and the cows are so disciplined..
Fresh milk for the calves..
The largest cattle farm in the clean!
That nite after dinner we gave these birthday boy n girl a surprise cake brought all the way from KK..birthday 2nd Jan..
Our dinner was hosted by the most accommodating Datuk Yap at his home, sup gear box, sate segala macam, grilled beef, kelapa pandan, bubur yam..
The next day we went to his "backyard" see the ostriches..<
Fed his deers..<a

And checked out the kambings..

Budak-budak had a great time..

Fly away...

My Indulgence

Just started to read of my greatest hobbies when i used to have all the time in the world..must make time for myself to escape and breathe..and reward myself with something that i love to do. Becoming a wife and a mother, it is normal to give all your time and priority to keep a good family and home. But we must also not lose ourselves, and take care of our a little bit selfish and not feel guilty about it. I think, at least by doing so, it will keep us from losing our sense of humour, keceriaan and the youth we use to have/feel inside...wonder how long it will take me to finish this though..

Ever after

Welcome December...the month of weddings, baubles, and lots of merry making..

It is also the month where most parents will have headaches to find baby sitters and holiday plans to bring their hyper kids to the many places of interests..cuti-cuti Malaysia.

Recently went to a friends wedding at Magellan, the groom is one of KK's top sound n lights supplier. As expected his reception was a grand affair..with laser shows, smoke effects, confetti canons, multimedia show and the whole shebang..I especially like the cloth covered ceiling, Arabian tent like.
