Thoughts – A Twisted Fairytale

Once upon a time… there was a girl who likes to collect rubbish and things that are a waste of time… *LOL*

That’s it! After 2 weeks of rushing, the Halloween party 2016 is over! And I am so totally happy with the outcome of it! The effect of the decorations was definitely not too bad. Of course, again a very big thank you to my sister who is always there to support me in doing such things. And to the lil’ hub, who despite finds this a total waste of time, tried to keep quiet most of the time and let me do what I want, thank you for that too! And to all those who came and participated, thanks for coming. It’s just a small family party but I hope you enjoyed yourselves.

Well, I don’t have lots of photos to share because I was busy tidying up the loose ends such that I’ve forgotten to charge my hp. So I’m only counting on whoever had taken those photos to pass it to me. Anyhow, here’s a few on my 2 cuties and a group photo. Shall update on my decorations when I have the time.

Snow white & the seven dwarfs

Look who we have! Starting from left, I’m not too sure which character, followed by the colour wolf, Jack & the long beans, fat mad hatter (that’s me), Peter Pan that has changed, Snow White, Alice, Pinocchio & red riding wolf!

Tons of fun except for one thing. The buffet that we ordered from Neo Garden for a pax of 30 doesn’t seem sufficient. Seems like the quantity isn’t good when you ordered for less than 50 pax and it looks like that will be the last time we get our buffet from there.

Whatever! I’m going to get my sleep now. Goodnight folks! And Happy Halloween!

Thoughts – Happy 49th Birthday, Singapore!

It’s Singapore’s 49th birthday and is a public holiday! So what’s better than to spend the time and have a facelift for the site! Okay fine, there wasn’t really much changes except for the header and some of the colours here and there. But I’m glad I finally took some time off to finish this which I had set aside for quite a period of time.

*LOL* Anyway, today was generally a fulfilling day with me waking up slightly later in the morning to try and catch up with some needy sleep. Followed by a lunch with the sis and cuz. Managed to get my free SK-II luggage too. And then subsequently took a really short nap before grabbing some dinner and watching the parade. The only negative thing that happened was with that stupid car (and definitely the owner too).

Anyhow, it was the first time that little milkie probably understand a little on what was going on. I sure enjoy the part where she stood up and said the pledge and sang the anthem. Not exactly that accurate but I guess it’s quite good for a 2 years old. It’s a tad sad that everyone was too engross in looking at her “performing” and it wasn’t taped down. Somehow, makes me really wondered if I should send her for singing courses, to see if she loves it. Hmm…

Hope your holiday was well spent with your friends and family too!

After half a day of non-stop baking, decorating and washing, I’m finally done and going to get my dinner near a coffeeshop around my parents’ house, and then I’m greeted by the chingay parade around the neighbourhood, with Teo Chee Hean (after that then I realized it’s him) saying his thanks to the people under his watch!

ramblings-0810

Nice to watch (Just a very short one) even though some of the people on board those vehicles looked extremely bored. *LOL*

That ends my day, for now. I doubt I’ll do anything back home later on… So goodnight peeps!

Thoughts – CNY Special Day 1

Right. So it’s the first day of CNY, and as usual, the whole day will be almost packed and I wouldn’t have the time to note down every single details. So this year, I’m just simply going to summarize and highlight some of the things that happened today. So here goes…

I started, or should I say, I ended my yesterday at around 4am this morning, after painting and decorating my nails. It wasn’t exactly one of my favourites as I simply couldn’t find the colours that I want. And due to the laziness, some of my nails were stained and turned yellow from the previous coat.

thoughts-cny-special-day-1-1

Right. Anyway, so I finally headed off to bed and slept in the most uncomfortable position with my arms right beside me, and not able to cover myself fully with the blanket even though it was relatively cold. Thanks to my vain self for painting the nails only at such late hour. The sleep wasn’t long, and after around 4-5 hours of sleep, I woke up and did what I had to – the yearly flower arrangement that I promised my mum (she sponsored me to take up the flower arrangement course while I’m still in college, and in return, I’ll have to arrange one for her during CNY every year).

thoughts-cny-special-day-1-7

It wasn’t really that hard. And it isn’t hard for anything that you’re interested in and you put your heart into it, even with such little resources. You just need to think of the best way to do it. Nonetheless, I do admit that I have not fully utilized this skill of mine, and so were the other SKILLS. Sigh… The problem when you have too many not so polished skills, and little time.

Oh yes, you haven’t seen what was on the wall this year right? Ain’t really that bravo as it’s generally all last minute work, but that will do since the inspiration spell doesn’t seem to come this year round. Thankfully, there’s some help from the cuz and sis to settle one wall. *LOL* But then again, it’s somewhat tiring for me this year as I packed myself with too many activities earlier on *recalling on my PME diploma*

So, the day continues with the little one happily “partying” as we (or generally maybe just me and my mum) gave her more lee way on the food that she can eat. Really. It started off with a big bite on the yummy buttercream cake. First try on buttercream definitely led her to want more. But to be honest, she really is quite obedient at times, to not insist on eating when we said it’s the last time.

thoughts-cny-special-day-1-5

Then there’s milo sweets, pineapple tarts (excluding the pineapple), kueh lapis, yakult and… I lost track. Bottomline – she’s definitely enjoying every bit, other than the meeting with so many strangers.

thoughts-cny-special-day-1-4

 Ah yes. Here’s another observation. I won’t say exactly that my baby is obedient, but then, I felt that she’s got more manners compared to a lot others. Sometimes I wondered if it’s because she’s slightly older by that few months, or it’s the behaviour taught by the parents or their caregivers. It’s like, she don’t usually snatch things from other kids (other than my nephew, whom she’s so close with, and that’s also because that nephew of mine kept on snatching from her also). And no, she don’t go around hitting people that she’s not familiar with. It’s like, she will say “share share” if the other kid refuse to share with her or snatch things from her.

thoughts-cny-special-day-1-6

I’m not one that will immediately go to my little girl’s help if she got “bullied”, nonetheless, I’ll always be around once I noted that she needed me. But here’s one dad who came to her rescue, after her younger cousin snatched her sweets, before she even ask for it. I don’t know, I just found it rather funny. Oops :p

Well, this little cousin wasn’t the only one I met today with such attitude. I guess that’s how kids are taught these days, or maybe not taught at all, or worse, can’t even be “controlled”, as what some might say (which to me, are all rubbish, as it really depends on whether the parents/caregivers want to teach or not).

Ramblings #0794

10.08am – Who has got the mood to work? Definitely not me, as I filled my brain with images of how to finish up the decoration in the hallway, and then planning out the time later on to run some last minute errands, finish the decoration, go back home for reunion dinner with the MIL, and then lastly, the reunion dinner at my parents’ house with my aunties and uncles. The schedule is tight, and I definitely need the cooperation of the lil’ hub. If he refused to go back to my parents’ house early, that’s it. And that’s a HIGH possibility.

10.24am – And suddenly… I wonder if I can find a full series for next year… Goat? Hmm… in cross-stitch form? Mosaic? Rainbow colours? Hmm…

ramblings-0794

10.50am – Hmm… I’m thinking… What was I thinking yesterday while I’m walking back home…? I remembered I linked something up… Oh yes, the baby, little milkie. When I was pregnant with her, I did wish, many a times, that she’ll look like me, and be like me, but emotionally stronger than me. She did come out like that. Is it a coincidence? Or is the energy that I have that resulted in this?

The ancient alien theories, mentioned by the cousin. The power of the mind, God, guardian or whatever. Ancient art, metaphysics, Mathematics, patterns. The world, is definitely more than what we see and know. But what?

The Great Moon, governs all knowledge and secrets… Shall I? Tap… it’s help?

12.06pm – LO AH!! Here’s my first LO HEI, and am doing it in the office with my fabulous! Huat huat huat ah!!

ramblings-0794-1

12.30pm – Time to GO HOME, on my own. The lil’ hub’s still at home. DUH! Seriously no sense of time. But never mind, shall not let him ruin my happy mood, and will rush back now to finish up the decoration. ^^

1.03pm – Jesus Christ… The NTUC is PACKED! Looks like I’m only able to get my munchies after CNY.

2.00pm – Going back to my own house for lunch with my MIL. *hungry hungry*

2.27pm – Where’s the food…? *fainting*

3.21pm – Ang bao packed! I’m ready for CNY!!

ramblings-0794-2

5.04pm – Great. Of all times, the car had to break down now… Ah… I’m only glad that we managed to reach the carpark than stuck in the middle of the road.

9.56pm – Amid the hiccup earlier on, we (excluding the lil’ hub) continued to have lots of fun!

ramblings-0794-4

Here’s my little baby in front of the pool of food, cooked by both my dad (and/or mum) and my godmum.

ramblings-0794-3

And then there’s me and the moody grumpy lil’ hub who refuses to look into the camera.

ramblings-0794-5

Lastly, the mess caused by my second lo hei of the year! Well, apparently little milkie loves it as she was seen smiling away after the whole event. So sweet…

ramblings-0794-6

So that’s it. There’s still tons of things to be done after this. And I definitely hope the little hyper active one goes to sleep early tonight (which I doubt so). Shall try and continue tomorrow. Ciao!
