1, they have slept independently in their own bedroom. This morning was the 3rd morning that they woke up happily from their beds. We will check on them twice every night. Once, before we sleep, and the second time, when I wake up for the toilet. We will make sure on their room temperature and bring May up to pee. April is able to do that on her own now with a torch light that we put on the side pocket of her bed. The yellow side pockets that hubb hang beside the rail of the beds are to keep the torch lights, story books and water bottles. Bravo to both my girls, and not forgetting to thank the father for setting up all the necessities.
2, so far, we only enrolled one extra Art class for April, other than her normal kindergarten class, whereas May was not attending any class before. Last Friday, I enrolled April in UCMAS Mental Arithmetic class, and May in the I-Mathematics class. I did worry of whether April would be able to cope with the additional class in the evening and whether May would cry for being apart 2 hours from us. To my surprise, May only wept for a while then she was just fine for the whole session. Her teacher even praised her for being very good and clever girl in the class. On the other hand, April was also showed high interest in the course after dismissing from the class. Both of them were like a chatter box, talking non stop about their first lesson for the entire night.
She said to me, "Mommy, why aunty (babysitter) said this is not my bed?".
I said, "Oh, really?".
I said again, "This is your new bed, it is yours.".
She said, "Tomorrow, I want to tell aunty that.".
My little May is satisfied after having my re-assurance.
When hearing this, April went a bit agitated and jealous, as she was in the school that time and she didn't get to play in the playground at all.
So, April said: "Mei mei, next time you cannot go to that playground, there got a lot of mosquitoes. Don't go there, ok!".
I just kept silent and waited for what May was going to say.
May said: "Papa asked me to go one ma! Papa asked me asked me to go one wo!".
April was so geram, and I said: "You both keep quiet, mommy wants to sleep already.".

Components of my sleep kits include:
2 big pillows - stack up to provide the best support for my head, neck and shoulder.
1 bolster - allow me to sleep side way and rest my knees on it.
1 pair of ear plugs - block out sounds that wake me up like the snores of your significant others or the barks of dogs.
1 small pillow - act as a sleep mask for me to shade all the light, though the extra thick curtain has done a very good job, I still need it to cover 50% of my face from nose upwards.
Pajamas - change into a comfy sleepwear is my permanent habit. I am still practising wearing new pajamas on CNY's eve.
Elements of the good night sleep environment include:
Total darkness - achieved by wearing the ear plugs.
Total quietness -achieved by covering my eyes and head with the small pillow.
Room temperature is maintained at 28-29C. So, blanket is not a must for me. I can sleep without blanket, unless the temperature is low.
These are all my favourite sleep wears. Looking HOT or sexy is not a key thing, but I rather want to feel really comfortable when I sleep in them. If I want to turn on my partner, I will go naked, hide myself under the blanket, and wait for him to find out with his hands .
'Drink more water' is also become my daily phone reminder to my children, and also to my baby sitter. I reminded her to remind my children to drink more water, other than having them to wash their hands with soap more frequently, these the minimal preventive actions from getting the H1N1 virus infection.
My children like to stick their stickers everywhere, even my water tumbler also won't get missed. One side is Belle from The Beaty And The Beast.
Recently I try the following NATURAL ways to stay slim and healthy.
1. Increase the intake of fruits and veggies. They are lower in calories, but will still make me fell full.
2. Drink plenty of water. It is not only flushing out toxins, it is also teaching the body that it no longer needs to store water
3. Weigh every day before it is too late to know that I have put one extra weight.
4. Resist the urge to over-eat, so I try to avoid places such as "all-you-can-eat" buffets and fast-food joints.
5. Take less meat and carbohydrate.
6. Pay attention to food labels and keep an eye out for unhealthy preservatives, added sugars and fat content, such as soft drinks, chocolates, sweets, cakes, ice-cream and etc.
7. Eat only when I'm hungry.
8. Exercise regularly!I sign myself up for a Yoga class and Aerobics class.
9. Sleep more. Having not enough sleep may cause sleep-deprived and lead to over-eat.
These long stretch and hot summer days have actually affected me a lot. It causes me to lose interest in SEX, outing, exercise and food. I just like to sit still on a couch under a fast fan or in an air-con room. I do not like to move my body at all. I take plenty of cold drink and a few times of cold showers a day, in order to cold down the body and the soul. The hot weather has also affected my mood and temper. My temper is getting HOT very fast. My mind is getting irritated easily too. So, my hubb and kids are the targeted victims, and I feel guilty most of the time.
I feel extremely uncomfortable as I sweat a lot. The moisturizer, lotion, toner or mask will never have chance to be absorbed by the skin. After I applied the skin care products, it would be blended with the sweat and got wiping away with the tissue at the end, and leaving the skin pores widely open. It is really bad for my skin. T____T.
I'm not a greedy person. I just wish to have RAIN. No need to be very heavy one, but average one is good enough. The best is to last for about 2 hours. Then, I won't be complained so much here.
I born and raised up in Raintown. No rain can actually weaken my spirit. I know this is out of my control. I have no power over the GOD. But, I miss RAIN. I really love having rainy day again.
This is the view taken from the place that I sit in the office. It is like burning hot. Tonight will be another unbearable night.
Today, I feel deeply in quilt again. We went to Old Town for lunch. I ordered the Simut Milk Tea and Mee Jawa. I finished both them "kering kotang", as I was very hungry that time. Too bad, I should have reminded myself of the famous quote by Oprah Winfrey: 'no starve, no lose'. T___T. Sigh... already too late.
Before I started eating, I have drunk half of the Simut Milk Tea. Now, I think of the sugar and milk in it, damn high in calories man!
After April went to the kindergarten, the teachers always used stickers to reward her. Day by day, she has plenty of them already, and caused her sticker containers overload. When I went for a hair cut in one evening, they were too bored at home with the father. So, they played with their stickers, and started to find a new place to stick them. When I returned home, I was stunned by seeing their wardrobe become like this.
First, I cut my hair. I failed in my mission to keep my hair long. T___T. My hair haven't longer enough, then I already gave up in keeping it any longer. Blame it to the very hot weather and also the discouragement of my hubb.
Overall rating of this movie is 7 out 10. Many said that part 1 was nicer, but we have yet to watch it. May be we should try to look up for its DVD soon.
We were spending too long time in browsing and testing in the shop, and forgetting about our plan to eat at the Noodle Station. After reaching office, I already damn hungry. Quickly, we went to canteen to hunt for some snacks. Luckily, the canteen was still opened.The hungry ghost was opening up the snack with her shivering hands. My stomach was having loud drum noise already.
My very sweet neighbour Yvonne was posing with her new dress. She complained about her new neighbour, who just sat next to her since yesterday, caused her to lose her privacy at her work place. LOL!
Hubb utilised his credit card collected points to redeem these two mini laptops.
