Thoughts – My Practical Husband

My husband isn’t too bad, honestly. He’s not the best husband in the world but he definitely isn’t the worse. Over the years, he already improved without me asking out right for him to, so what else can I ask for? But if given a choice, of course I wish he would be even better than now.

You see, he is a really practical person. I’m glad that somewhat he is but at times, I wished so much that we think alike especially when it comes to education/skills for our children.

Food – Rise @ MBS

My ex-boss is giving us a treat today at Rise in MBS! What? I’m on a diet? Haha, yes I am but for today, I am willing to just skip my diet! I was already so excited when I heard about the place although I’ve never tried before (reviews from a colleague was good).

Anyway, we reached for lunch and it wasn’t crowded at all. We did make a reservation though just in case.


There’s a wide spread of food from Japanese, to Chinese, to local, Indians and so on. I took a walk around and was immediately caught by one of the dishes – miso cod dish. That became my main target subsequently.


Of course for sushi lovers, there isn’t anything to worry for there are quite a number of sushi to choose from, and there’s sashimi!


That was my first plate. Took 3 kids of fish, steam seabass, miso cod fish and some indian kind. Love the miso cod fish!


Their dessert corner wasn’t too bad either. But with my stomach already filled with that fish, this is the only plate I can eat. Oops.

Overall verdict from colleagues: GREAT! Oh yes! We get to have some discounts because one of them was a Sands member and apparently it’s free to join! Do look out for it! I’m definitely joining that membership and going back for the food. Make sure call to make a reservation if it’s going to be a weekend.

Ramblings – Something’s BREWIN’!

I’m keeping you in suspense but something’s definitely brewing and you better drink it while it’s hot when it’s ready!

Am so busy these days and so lack of sleep, but in a very happy way. It’s good to feel so motivated and to work with someone with this kind of drive, at least it pushes me on in a good way.

Definitely excited! Can’t wait for it to happen actually. I’m pretty sure it’s going to be fun!

Ramblings – U.S. 11/9

I’m still in shock. I believe most of the world are in shock too, especially when you see that sea of RED.


It’s been hours and I still cannot believe what happened earlier on, the voting of the Americans. Donald Trump actually won and became the next America President.

Was it really the choice of the majority of the people there? Or are they only voting against Hillary? Or maybe, most of them simply gave up their votes because they can’t vote for either of the party. Whatever the case, it seems like it’s not a dream and we might have a roller coaster 4 years to go for the whole world.

As unpredicted as it can be, he’s like a timebomb, a mad man that will turn crazy anytime and do something non-sensical. At least, that is what he portrayed of himself to the world. I hope I am wrong, I hope he can prove us wrong, and show us that he can really MAGA (Make America Great Again). But otherwise, the other country will be quietly creeping up from the back to take over the world, which it is already doing so.

The world of politics. Never my kind of life but then I’ve got children who will have to go through bad decisions by some people at the top shall there people who are randomly picked for it.

Looks like we can only pray for the better for now.

Ramblings – When Food Makes You Happy

8.49am – It’s a darn thing when food makes you happy but you are dieting. Gosh… the craving was so huge I had to give in. Looks like I would have walk miles tonight to make up for yesterday and this breakfast.


I’m not dieting just to have a nice breakfast on a Friday… *pouts*

Friday. Yes. It came finally. But this week had been fruitless. Procrastinating items after items. I’m constantly lacking motivation. If only there is some tools or someone that continuously perks you up and reminds you for anything and everything.

It looks like I’m back to square one but… I don’t want to be back at square one…

9.46am – How nice if the time can stop right now for a few hours so that I can catch up with my work. But alas, time lost is lost forever, at least the basic mind would think that but what if, just if, there really is a way to stop time?

Ramblings – Ramp it UP!

8.08am – I didn’t have the time to pen down my thoughts yesterday as there were too many things crowded in my head, as usual. Generally things are going fine, at least I would think so although a friend told me that his wife’s pregnancy journey hits yet another hurdle – cervix suspected to be a little too short.

I didn’t really know what it meant and so I googled a little and found out that it basically means the path for the baby to come out is too short, which means that its easier for baby to drop out! Okay, I’m scaring you but thats how I feel. Imagine a funnel made of rubber with a short tube. If the weight on top is heavy, the tube will simply open and give way. Worried? Yes a little but I think if you don’t keep on going with the gravity and get tons of bed rest, it does help to lift the pressure off. She’s at 21 weeks now and its definitely a risk if the baby is born prematurely. I just hope that she can get through this. After all, it hadn’t been easy for her to come to this point. Again, I am thankful that my baby journey weren’t that worrying. And to those who are facing the same difficulties, be strong, endure and ganbatte!

And then I was rushing through my monthly report which has so many changes this month. What is worse? My manager will be on leave tomorrow! And that implies that there will be chunks of questions that I can’t answer, and that I will have to wait till tomorrow. That’s the problem when there isn’t SOP or things that I can refer to. Everything seems to be pluck from the air anyhow anywhere. And there’s still a list of outstanding items!!

I was trying to perk myself up after that and thus I messaged an ex-colleague as I thought of meeting her to celebrate her birthday but who knows, I received a bad news – her dad was diagnosed with lung cancer. Alas, is it a bad timing or a good one? Well, it’s already stage 3 or 4, which the doctors are trying to confirm it. And partly because of that, she’s trying to sell her house as her dad hasn’t got any insurance, which reminded me that my parents don’t have it too. Not that I am cursing my parents, but it’s something I had to worry about, sadly.

Luckily, there are still some happy things to talk about. HDB finally approved! And that means we won’t be homeless, for too long. *LOL* But it’s quite irritating when the lil’ hub kept asking me about the decoupling thing when I know nuts about it. And then he gets pissed off when I suggested certain possibilities. Stop asking me then! Anyway, I stopped replying him after a while at night.

I’m flooding and my mood is not good. I’ve started to control my diet a bit, eating and snacking slightly healthier – the hamster food.


And I also managed to take a walk yesterday after dinner, while catching some pokemons. Around 30 minutes but it’s good enough. 10kg in 6 months. That is my target. I need to be slimmer and better than, well, okay. I’ve been diligent and put on my retainers as well as facial mask at night too. I also bought my QV cream and use hair conditioner. Ah… maintenance is hard work…

Little milo’s sleeping timing is getting a bit out these days. He slept a bit later and woke up earlier. Today at 5-ish and coming into my room to wake me up for milk because the grandpa refused to. Why? Because he kept on drinking and drinking, and yesterday he puked. Not sure if it’s because he ate too fast or too much. Well, and I supposed he is long overdue for a injection. I better check his health booklet tonight.

My homeschooling plan hasn’t started. And as much as I wanted to prepare all the materials and stuffs. A glance in my room and that would put me off. Where am I going to chuck all those stuff?


The space is limited and I haven’t manage to curb my spending yet. So it just keeps on growing. Okay, maybe I did resisted on normal price but definitely not on sale items… and I still got 3 tsum tsum books which I am dying to get my hands on!

*think hard*

3.04pm – Emo day. Difficult to concentrate. Need to clean up my room fast.
