Happy many returns day to me.... :)

Instead of the usual Happy Birthday... some people said the above :)

Woke up this morning quite late. Just wanna rest some more cos last night we slept quite late.

Hubby was working the whole day. My son was in my brother's place for the whole day too.. So eventually, I was alone hehehe....

Vegetarian Wanton Noodle :)
I went to pasar (market) in Hougang near my old-house, had the vegetarian wanton mee.. my favourite noodles in that store. After that, moved to another coffee shop to have a kopi. The kopi there is much nicer than the first coffee shop. I couldn't find my mother-in-law, so I just found a table and had a seat.

In a while, I saw my two sis-in-law and her two sons. So I asked them to sit with me. My mother-in-law also came to the coffee shop, but she was sitting with her friend. Good la, so I didn't have to sit alone.... hahahahaha...... We chit chatted then went back home at 12pm.

Thank you for Birthday wishes given... I appreciate it very much!!! Thank you to my Mum who gave birth to me and brought me up with my Pa.. Also 4 siblings who had taught me much about life. Without all of you, there won't be 'me' right now.

Thanks to hubby too for being understanding of me all these years... Hope to be with you many years to come.... Baobei, thanks for your wishes on the phone this morning too..

Had siomai this evening and pempek for dinner. Koko and families came and had pempek together.

Well, hope all of you had a great Sunday!!!

Sabbe Satta Bhavantu Sukkhitatta....

Busy September :)

September, what a busy month!!! Hubby and I decided to go home from 14-17 Sep, to attend my cousin's wedding. His wedding day fell on 16th. On 15th itself, we attended the cousin's granddaughter's one-year Birthday party. It was an Alladin theme, very interesting!

Me and families @Jasmine 1st Birthday

Our time there was very limited. We didn't do much thing except full-body massage, creambath, and some window shopping. But at least I managed to eat some of my favourite food :D

Our cousin's wedding :)
We also had some time to spend with my parents. They had been so kindly cooking our favourite food to be brought back to Jakarta. They also accompanied us for breakfast outside. Love both of you very much!!! :)

Me and my childhood friends :)

During the cousin's wedding, I managed to meet many relatives and even my childhood friends. How time flies. One by one started to build their own families. Really grateful for everything.

I came back alone. My hubby spent few days more in Pontianak together with my sister, brother, and relatives. Today he is coming back with my brother.

Bonds and Bond Girls :D

On Tuesday, 18 Sep, we had Dinner and Dance in the company where I work. Our dept staff were wearing James Bond clothes. Quite nice. We were chosen as one of the best dressed team, but unfortunately didn't win the prize (we were defeated by 1 point only!!). I won $150 nett dining voucher in Chinese restaurant in Sentosa. Well, maybe enough for 2-3 pax ba... Another colleague won the microwave and he gave it to me. Well, not a very good brand, but our microwave at home was quite old. So it will be good to use it as replacement.

On Wed, my friend, his wife and son, came to Singapore. They stayed in our house for few days because the hotel rates were expensive due to F1 and they hadn't booked any hotel earlier.

Les Roches gathering

At the same time, my friend from Taiwan came to Singapore and we arranged to meet up for chit chatting and drink. We met at Brotzeit in Vivo. 

Dinner @Blue Potato
On Fri, we had dinner at place where I worked. David and his families, my sister-in-law and my mother-in-law joined too. Not bad la, everyone ate until very full. After dinner, we had a walk at Clarke Quay and Chinatown. Feivel is very cute, especially when he was getting tired... His step would get slower, his mouth would 'monyong'and started to call his 'papi.... capeeee...... gendong........'hahahaha.... But when Reever disturbed him, he would smile and walk again... :D Being young, fat and cute is so good... you can act anything you want without getting a scold. Hahahaha......

On Sat, Reever and I accompanied my friends almost the whole day. We just went to Compass Point. Had a kopi at Yakun, some Malay food at Uncle Toby, then Indian food for lunch @Kopitiam. Ate, ate and ate.... Hehehehe.... They just had some last minute shopping before going back home. Reever missed his Buddhist class again... haiz... and happily did so..

We fetched them to below our block then we proceeded to my brother's house. We were there to celebrate my niece birthday. My brother and hubby came back from Jakarta that night, straightly to Bishan. So they could directly join the party. Mei mei is 9 years old. How time flies...

Aryn 9th year Birthday
Auntie cooked quite number of dishes. We ate until very full. Then cutting the birthday cake followed with opening the presents. This time, me and my dajie shared the lego (pony barn) to her. And because of that, Reever stayed there for a night. He was much more exciting that her as he would like to build the lego for her.. haiz.... :D

My brother said he wanted to fetch us home, so we waited for him. At 10pm, I had already been so tired and wanna go back, but he was sitting in front of TV watching his favourite football game. Alamak.. he said he would like to watch half game, which means 45 mins to go. Oklor, bo pian.. I waited at Astro room and hubby accompanied me there chit chatting. When it's 10.45pm, I went out and couldn't find him. Auntie said he went to take a bath. Alamak!! I thought he really wanna watch the game until I stayed back for him...

While waiting near the dining table, suddenly it was dark in living room. Astro also turned off the light near the second living room. The TV was on and playing the children birthday song. I was wondering, what happened there.. Why there was another party which I wasn't invited for... hahahaha.. When I stepped there, everyone was there looking at me..

Surprise Birthday cake and celebration :) Thank you....

Then I was asking... "What's this? Anyone birthday??" Soso just smiled2.. Then when I looked at hubby, he was also smiled2... Alamak... they were preparing the surprise birthday cake and celebration for me.. I really didn't expect it. Ços I've been used to attend her birthday party only and usually there is nothing special during my birthday. So.. we sang birthday song.. cut the cake... took photos... and ate the cake.

No wonder how come the rest of my soso's cousins didn't go back home until so late... I cut the cake quite early, at about 11pm, but it was quite late for them to stay mah... Lucky my brother fetched the family back home, because there were 2 children who had been sleepy and tired...

Hehehe... So old already, still received this kind of surprise.. I'm afraid I couldn't take it... hahahaha.......

Thank you hubby, koko and soso for that.. Also for the rest of the people who were waiting and helping in preparing it... thank you very much!!!

Back to reality - Neighbour's grass is always greener than ours

I need 2 weeks time to adjust back to where I live now. Came back from Bhutan and Nepal trip. Felt like staying in dreaming world. Felt like go back to 20 years back, where what available was beautiful scenery, natural greenery, fresh and healthy fruit n veggies, and those people were still innocent to today's world. Well, except that they have internet and access to international TV.

For a while, it's good to be there. But think back again, now they are developing their country now. It's going to be more materialistic. They have more 'want' than what they 'need'. I believe suffering will come soon or later :D


Wakie wakie!!!!

I'm living in different country now. It's already so materialistic. People shop more than what they need. They fight for newer car, or bigger house. Hahahaha..... Can't imagine! I need two weeks to adapt back. Back there, life is still simple. Haiz... Naïve ba? How to go back in time if you are living in place like this? Chance for enlightenment gets farer... Hahahaha....

Well, live in present. Be glad with what you are and what you have. Unless, you are just like Buddha, who leaves everything to reach enlightenment. :D

Have a great weekend everyone! Going for shopping later... Buffet lunch tomorrow... Shopping again... Etc... Etc.. Etc... :)
