Huh?? Wrinkle? Aging? What??

I went window shopping the other day and passed by this skin care counter.
I stopped by to ask about their products, since I have time in my hands.
So, the salesperson start to explain and start asking questions, this and that...
After answering a set of questions..she took out a magnifying mirror, where the image is a few times larger and asked me to look at it.
Then she starts pointing at certain areas of my face.

Dry skin (huh?? all this while I thought I have oily skin)
Oily skin (now I have oily skin???)
So, it's like a part of my face is oily, while the rest is dry...hmm...ok...
wrinkles (mmm..what?? well, getting older I guess?? Older?? Mmmm..what? can hardly hear that)
fine lines (ok..this is getting creepy...)
crow's feet (now i have feet at my face!!)
laughing lines (shouldn't all of us have that?? unless you have stroke or something??)
black head (heard this before...but who cares..)
The conclusion...I need an anti-aging skin care plus sunblock to prevent skin tag (??), and two set of cleanser for different part of my face- dry and oily.
And don't forget to stop by their spa for a facial treatment.

And that's in a day of someone that never have a facial treatment all her life. And who could live for days without facial treatment set. And rarely touch a make-up set.

Kids Nowadays

My kids always near me, literally. They never play or do anything outside my eyeview.
But one day, Laiqa was not around when I was watching TV in the living room.

Mummy: Laiqa...where are you?
Laiqa: I'm here, mummy... at your laptop...
Mummy: Hand's off my laptop...what are you doing there anyway?
Laiqa: Playing games..
Mummy: Oh..well..ok..

After 5minutes..

Mummy: Laiqa, what are you doing now? Haven't you finished playing game? Come watch TV with me.
Laiqa: I'm updating the blog.
Mummy: WHAT?? Who's blog are you updating?
Laiqa: Yours.
Mummy: (laughing) ok...

After another 5minutes..

Mummy: Haven't you finished updating my blog?
Laiqa: I'm checking my email now.
Mummy: (laughing non-stop) Who would ever wanna send you emails?
Laiqa: Daddy
Mummy: Ok..

Another 5minutes pass.

Mummy: Laiqa, come here.
Laiqa: I'm playing SUDOKU at your laptop.

I can't help myself but to take a peek.

Yup, she surely is playing SUDOKU!!!

And she did edit a few things in my blog...which i have to correct back. nowadays....

Same But Different

We are the same but yet we are different.

We love to read. Books have a major role in our relationship. It was my first gift to him- a novel by John Grisham. He likes reading novels, but his choices of novels are totally differ from mine. Novels that i read either medical thriller, romance, 'funny' drama, or novels such as Harry Potter or the likes.
While, he reads law, politic, drama, which I find rather heavy for my simple brain.

We love to try all kinds of food. He is rather adventurous. but our choices of food are different. He loves his steak to be medium rare , while mine will always be well-done.

We both are stubborn, and sticking to our ideas, but our ideas are usually different.

If we have to choose a shirt for him, we always choose the same design, but our choice of colours are totally different.

We love surfing the net, but for different reason.

We love the kids but we have different ways of showing it.

There are many other things...anyway,
we are surely is the same, but yet we are different.

p/s AB, may be I sometimes forget to appreciate you enough each day, but my love for you is always strong, through thick and thin.

p/s- sorry for not updating for quite sometime, I was in my 'kampung'. Not in the mood to blog anyway, but, my 'self-proclaimed no 1 fan' has been asking about the updates several times a day...
One entry a day huh?? Hmmmm..I'll try...I'll try (nodding my head, while a baby is crying in my lap, and the 2 kids are fighting over the tv channels, with drinks spilled all over the living room carpet)
life is tough, who says it isn't..but i'll try, i'll try (now I have 2 crying kids- the baby on my lap, and Laiqa who has been force by Umar to watch ben10 with him instead of Dora the Explorer, and the ants start to make its way towards the spill drinks)
One entry a day...aarghhhh...I don't think so...huargghhhh....

Started my day feeling quite good. Hei..may be i get the correct side of the bed today OR may be that cheering up thingy really does work. (but Ab, I'm still not 100% happy...need constant cheering up :):) a bit demanding huh???...anyway..what hubby is for..hehheheh).

We had chocolate chips pancakes for breakfast. Ummm...loves chocolate chips...i put chocolate everywhere that i can think of. And the kids love pancakes.

Then back to the mission....

I have been 'asked' by a few friends to organize a reunion get-together for our ex-classmates in high school. It's sounds easy. Just gather the contact numbers, give them a call or just text them, arrange the venue and date.

But is not easy as A, B, C.
And why, oh why...I always be the victim to such #@?^%*%# thing??

There were 25people in my class. I manage to trace/get in-touch with only 15.
I went through all this trouble and when i texted, they never reply. When I called, they said, "I don't think I can join." Or, "that venue is quite far from my place" or "that place is not suitable for me" or "can we do at lunch hour instead of dinner" and the winner is "if u can get everybody to come, then i'll come".

Feeling like cancelling the whole thing. But...there are also, a few friends from out of KL, who are willing to book a flight @ drive all the way, guys..let us just go for it.
I believe I have the right to veto this matter...I will decide with my own logical mind (if there is any logic left) on where and when we are going to meet.

To those few who are attending...let us celebrate.

Wrong side of the bed...

I think I woke up today at the wrong side of the bed. As if there are many sides to my bed, as the other side are already being occupied. So that would make that I have only one bedside left for me, and why do they always say that 'get out of bed at the wrong side'?? May be that english idiom are meant only for the 'singles'. Or, the wrong side meaning that i have to crawl over the one that is sleeping beside me, and once at the other side, i happen to woke up. Hmmm...doesn't make sense either.
Anyway, my day started pretty bad. Doesn't mean that all the other day i have a wonderful start, it's just, i don't feel good, elated, happy, etc.
But why? I have no idea. So, before i keep on saying ridiculous things in my blog, i shud stop.
Direly need cheering up.
Hopefully, next morning, I get the correct side to get up to.
