Under My Umbrella Eh Eh Eh~

How to decorate a blank brolly to something more exciting or rather, to make your kid excited over. Haha. Thank you DAISO. I love you (for the cheap stuff) many many for giving me ideas to get the kid's hands durrrty~

Weapons of choice:
the leftovers adhesive felt fabric bought from daiso 
a pair of scissors

So I let her picked the colors she wanted to be placed on her umbrella and how she wish the placements of the designs to be.

She wanted to add on robots, monsters and dinosaurs but alas we ran short of felt fabric. Will run off to Daiso again for supplies. 


 

Those school of fish were supposed to be sharks but er can lah eh whahwahawh. I forgot the dorsal fins. 

So as we go along cutting, creating and pasting; I was asking her what is the purpose of the umbrella. She said to poke bad people. -_-

To protect yourself from the rain and sun, my child. Ok for the case of bad people; when the time comes, then you can poke them ok?



Kid lives happily ever after going to school carrying her umbrella. Perfect for the recent super hot weather  ey?

I took a week's worth of leave right after the Chinese New Year period. So woo woo that was a long break for me. Here are some photos vomit  If you noticed, I been wearing the same tudung over and over. HAHAHA but me likey this tudong, it is like the most comfortable yet easy breezy to use tudung ever in the whole universe nobody can challenge! I was feeling a little lethargic and fighting the sickly feel. Right after the husband came back home, both us girls crash and burn. HAHA. How nice to be tended to. I came back to work today feeling like I swallowed broken glass down my throat and my head hurts whenever I cough. 

Photos overload, photos overload. 



This was us right after an awesome 2 hours massage at home. Decided to grab a couple of jamu jamu stuff at Geylang and Chappati session with the Madre and the kid later on in the evening. 




Getting ready to head off to Khatib. Here we go! PS: I don't take cab rides because i have motion sickness sooo the bus or the train i gooo. It was a good sleep in the train from Khatib to City Hall though. Hahha


Sunday morning, two helpers came over to spring clean the entire house. Here's the kid caught in action washing the stroller and my bicycle. Ah happiness is a clean house. On Monday, the mom went back home. So it was just us girls on our own. The kid started to bawl when I send her to school. I had to make a quick kiss hug see you later and dash off. 


The loot I got from Watson at Tampines. Hey the baby wipes were at 8.50 for 3 pieces ok! So i grabbed 9 ahhaha. The nappy rash was going for 2 for 11.50 so i grabbed 6 pieces of that box. I could not resist a steal ok. I very makcik makcik international ok. Must grab one. 




The day we girls have been waiting for close to 2 months! The homecoming Aby! Wohoooo! He touched down at 5ish in the morning.  As soon as he reached home, the kid heard her Aby's voice and sprung up, all fresh and awake.  This is at 7plus am. Also the day we both crash and burn falling sick with sniffles and bad coughs. hahah. 



That evening, another pleasant surprise, the brother came by. Apparently he was in KL right after Sri Lanka and then back up to Kanchanaburi, Thailand. Hence missing for 2 weeks when he was supposedly to come back on the 14th February. -_-

A nice catch up over dinner and then coffee and dessert later on. 



More food adventures during our sick days. I scream, you scream, we scream for ice cream!






And last Saturday we went for Azfer's Majlis Syukuran. I think I forgot how to carry a newborn baby. Thank you Nurul for the awesome cake! Once again your cupcakes and your Apple Crumble are the bomb yo! 

Will start blogging again when my brain is not so cluttered and sick. Hachooo~

For Peace! For Peace!

We can never be at peace if we keep thinking of two things: when will a favor we've done be returned and how to revenge a wrong done to us. - Mufti Ismail Menk

Swallow my ego, that's my mission. Erda version 2015 is to work and practice what I preached. Sometimes, my ego gets the best of me and think hey it's never my fault! Nowadays, when something happens, I sit down and reflect, reflect, reflect. For peace of mind, I feel it's best to approach in private rather than spill for the world to see.  It won't make me the better person by rallying the whole world to join in and make remarks just to make me feel better.  Apologize even if I am not sure where I go wrong.  Because seriously, I will never know what I have done or said if I never ask right?  Start a clean slate. Don't let a huge rock anchor me down. It's okay if the person I seek forgiveness didn't reciprocate. Move on. Stop talking about them. Shut up your mouth Erda.

You can do this ok.

No point sharing inspirational quotes and hadiths but not practicing on it ay?

What Next Hombre.

My brown Asian cellulitis arse have been stuck in Singers-land for a good 8 months plus! 

This brown girl needs an escape soon. 

I have been toying with Europe, Greece, Istanbul, Japan, Islands of Thailand, Helloo Bali, Melbourne to visit the family there among others. Decision, decision. Right now, I have hmm plenty to think about at the moment. Will strike back after this break.





I have been <strike> drilling </strike) training this kiddo with some assessment books from the Kindergarten Level. I know right, Erda what are you doing to your child! I'm sorry kid, one day I hope you will understand. 

Dammit Singapore, stop pressurising mehhhh.

20. AND FINALLY THE HUSBAND IS BACK! 24th February Tuesday

I received my belated birthday present and I think this is the best gift ever. A Wall Punch Pad! A birthday gift from a dear girlfriend, Mia the Mouse. ahahah I was going on and on about a punching bag as a birthday gift (Well they did ask what i wanted for my birthday whaaat!) Shameless i know right? BUT of course the current house has no space for that so i think it was a smart idea that Mia gave me a wall punch pad instead. Actually, honestly I was surprised she got it for me. Because you know people hardly take me seriously when i say something hawhwahaw. 

Clumsy Ninja. The kid is obsessed with that game. I have to hide the I-PAD away from her. In the meantime, she been whining on wanting to join in some martial art class. I have been toying for her to join in for self-defense. I need her to be well equipped with protecting herself. Trust me, I had gone through hell when I was at her age all through the age of 9 with some unfortunate incident. I have been reminding her, NOBODY IS ALLOWED TO TOUCH YOU. TELL ME IF THERE ARE ANY INCIDENTS. One of the reason why I do not dress her up too girly.  Aby, I am sure you are well equipped in Taekwondo and Silat back in your days. Please impart your knowledge to this young Padawan of yours. I thank thee.
