Both of my darling April and May are very "ai sui" (超爱美). When they saw me applying lips balm and hand cream before bedtime. They also wanted to apply. So, I bought them Nivea lips balm and Thefaceshop hand creams.

These are their new toys. April takes the apple. She said her name starts with A, so she wants apple. So, May has to take the lemon. I find apple smells sweeter, as lemon smells like the GLO dish wash.
They are so excited using their new hand cream. Oh! they also bugged me to do manicure and pedicure for them.

I used to keep all their hair clips, combs, hair bends, rubber bends and other hair accessories in a big moon cake box.

Steal the idea from Yvonne on her entry about how to organize her daughter's hair clips. Look at mine here. April's hair clips.

May's hair clips.

Bulgari Green With Envy

Thanks to Mei for the tag. So, I am going to reveal the Bulgari 3 Things That Make Me Green With Envy, with the conjunction with the new release of the Bulgari Green with Envy contest.

1. Envy those stay at home moms (SAHM) and still have plenty $$$ to spend.
Since my first born on 10 April 2004, I already thought of being a SAHM. Due to certain constraints, and I am still working now. Moreover, now every where is facing the recession, it is even harder for me to stop working and stay at home to take care of my own children. Thus, I really envy my neighbours who can be SAHM, and can still drive exclusive cars and go for family trips twice a year.

2. Envy those women who have many kids and still in shape.
That is because of I already have 2 kids, and so scare to have another one and not back in shape anymore. I put on approximately 20 kg for both my pregnancies, and I took more than a year to slim down and still not back to my weight before I have kids. It seems impossible for me to back to my ideal weight now. Although I love babies, and always think of having another one, but still in dilemma, after concerning about the weight gain issue. Thus, I envy those women who have many kids and still can maintain their figures.

3. Envy people who can have 8 hours sleep a day.
Why so hard for sleeping for 8 hours? It is hard especially for a working mom like me. I have to wake up early to send children to their caregiver. Right back home from work, I have to fetch them back from caregiver and busy with all the routine jobs until the children went to bed. Then, I have to stay up a bit more late to catch up with the spouse, otherwise the spouse will feel that he is neglected. If I can sleep through the night for at least 6 hours, I'll feel thankful already. But usually cannot, as I have to wake up mid of the night to check on the children, whether they're cold or they're warm. Thus, I envy people who has 8 hours sleep everyday.

And now I continue to pass the tag to,

Ice Cream Treat

I don't always let my children take ice cream, as my children are very pruned to cough and flu. However, all children love ice cream, candies and chocolates. So I only allow them to taste it when they are fine. April is the allergy type, she always takes longer time to get well. Every time she was sick, before she could fully recover, May fell sick and passed the germ to her again. That's why she seldom free from cough and flu.

Last weekend, I found them were fine and the weather was quite warm outside. I decided to treat them ice cream.
May was enjoying her vanilla flavour ice cream.

Even her saliva also almost dripped down.

April was having her chocolate flavour ice cream.

They were watching Tom & Jerry Show from Cartoon Network.

Tag on getting to know yourself better

Read Mei's blog on this tag and think it is interesting. So, here is my result of the personality test.

Your view on yourself:
You are down-to-earth and people like you because you are so straightforward. You are an efficient problem solver because you will listen to both sides of an argument before making a decision that usually appeals to both parties.
>> True, I'm down-to-earth and indeed straighforward like I described myself as a frank person in my earlier entry.

The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:
You are a true romantic. When you are in love, you will do anything and everything to keep your love true.
>> I'm not sure whether I'm romantic, and I'm only sure I always put effort to keep love alive.

Your readiness to commit to a relationship:
You are ready to commit as soon as you meet the right person. And you believe you will pretty much know as soon as you might that person.
>> Again, in my earlier entry All About Me, I said my husband was my first love. So to say that I commit to the right person since the very beginning.

The seriousness of your love:
You are very serious about relationships and aren't interested in wasting time with people you don't really like. If you meet the right person, you will fall deeply and beautifully in love.
>> Yes, it is true, I never wanted to try or waste my time in a person which I had no feel at all.

Your views on education:
You may not like to study but you have many practical ideas. You listen to your own instincts and tend to follow your heart, so you will probably end up with an unusual job.
>> LOL, so true la! I have used and depended on my strong intuition that almost right 99% on most of my things.

The right job for you:
You're a practical person and will choose a secure job with a steady income. Knowing what you like to do is important. Find a regular job doing just that and you'll be set for life.
>> Yes I'm now working on a secure job and steady income.

How do you view success:
You are afraid of failure and scared to have a go at the career you would like to have in case you don't succeed. Don't give up when you haven't yet even started! Be courageous.
>> Right, I'm afraid of failure, who is not?

What are you most afraid of:
You are afraid of things that you cannot control. Sometimes you show your anger to cover up how you feel.
>> This is the most accurate part in the quiz. I hate things out of my control. I'll get really upset and dissapointed if things don't go per plan, and the anger will soon overtake my whole mind.

Who is your true self:
You are mature, reasonable, honest and give good advice. People ask for your comments on all sorts of different issues. Sometimes you might find yourself in a dilemma when trapped with a problem, which your heart rather than your head needs to solve.
>> Quite true also. Friends like to discuss with me on relationship, parenting, family, friendship and other matters.

As a conclusion, I'm happy with the quiz, and the result is almost all correct for me.
You can find out yours here.

Here are two random pics of my two girls and me over the weekend. Our dress code is purple.
