The only Gold medal

Many people amazed at my time management. I am being a full time working mother for 2 kids, and being able to maintain a blog,  going for exercise at least 3 times a week, baking, cooking on weekends, coaching my girls in their studies and watching some TVB dramas that I like. Mind you, I can cope up with my hectic lifestyle so well, all because I have a Gold Medal husband.

Why I say so?

When he sees bruises or mozzie bites on our hands or legs, he will rub ointment and make all bruises and wound disappear in only 3 days.

When he comes back from work late, and I go to tuck the princesses to sleep, he will check their school bags to review their  homework and help sharpening all their pencils and color pencils.

Since my princesses were still babies until now, he does the cleaning of their ear wax and trimming their fingers and toes nail.

He supervises my princesses in their homework, when I am not around.

Even if I am around, he does all the cleaning in my house that your 2 Indon maids cannot compete with his tidiness.

Weekends, he let me go to gym and he stays home to cook us lunch of 3 dishes and 1 soup.

After the gym, I go home all thirsty and hungry, he has prepared a hearty meal and a big mug of my favourite fruit juice for me on the table.

On and off, he will check my wallet at night and replenish some cash inside.

I have forgotten when was the last time I refilled the gas in my car.

Despite  I can drive and I have my own car, he likes to be my driver sending me to Yoga class, hair saloon and beauty saloon, and picking me up after I have done. 

When my two princesses go to bed, there is the time we watch TVB drama together through PPS.TV  at computer.

Usually I will have very light dinner, I crave for snack before bedtime . He won't allow me to nibble on peanuts, crackers and chocolate. He will serve me a big plate of fruit that he cuts into small cube like these.

He has told me before not to flatter him so much in my blog, but what to do, he is the only Gold Medal that I have in my life.
Picture was taken in March 1998 at Pulau Langkawi.

  10. Envious.. My hubby used to help out in the household chores, not the kid's homework though as he is a banana man. Not anymore ever since I stay home and his work takes up most of his time now.

  11. You are one luck lady. My husband helps out once in a while but he always left some for me to pick up and clean up. If he cooks, I will have to do more cleaning than I do the cooking. Your husband qualifies for the Olympic Gold metal.:DDD

      2. i may check the homework, but won't sharpen the pencils (i thought now all using mechanical pencils??)

      Delete
    2. 3. trimming fingers and cleaning the ears?? hehehehe, i think ladies are more delicate in doing this..

      4. do housework?? maybe just hire a cambodian maid to do every thing lah~~

      Delete
    3. 5. make sure dinner is cooked when you're back?? aiyah, tabao can already lah~~ :D

      6. doesn't allow fattening late night snacks but only cube fruits?? aiyah, let's feast on the tidbits and chocolates together while watching TVB drama lah~~ :D

      Delete
    4. 1. My two girls enjoy and giggle a lot when their papa rub ointment on their bruises.
      2. Primary and Kindergarten are still using pencils that needed to be sharpened.
      3. I think so, but I am not as dedicate as my husband.
      4. He can put all other nationality maids to shame with his tidiness.
      5. We do tabao sometimes, but most of the time we take turn to cook on weekend.
      6. He knows that his wife is a maniac on weight loss. He doesn't want to suffer from long winded grumble later on.

  26. My friends' wives like to compare notes between me and their hubbies. I realized most friends are male chauvinists and treated their wives like slaves. So they often quarreled like cats and dogs! I am sure you both never quarreled cos your hubby is like an angel.

  29. Sheoh Yan, you are such a lucky woman. I am sure I'm not the first one who said that. He's not a gold medal...he is priceless. I wish Ashley will be able to find a husband like yours next time :D

    1. Barb, true enough, I have told April and May to use their papa as a benchmark of their future husbands. I keep telling them that they must find someone as ideal as their papa. So, I know why you said you wish that Ashley can find a husband as great as him.

      My husband is not only great as a husband or father, he is great as a person.

    2. Yes Yan, I totally agree with you. I can tell that your hubby is a great person. It's really rare to find someone like him. I really envy you....hhahaha. Actually I am very happy for you to have found such a good man, my friend :)

    1. Barb, I read your comment yesterday night.

      Just like Lin Dan and Lee Chong Wei, one has Gold, and one has Silver. You can't deny the fact that both are equally good. Right?

      Andy doesn't need to be a Gold, because he already has a Gold Medal wife whom is a Gold Medal mom to his daughter.

    2. Thank you Yan. I do wish mine is a gold medal but he's not. So I hope my daughter would find one next time. You must have done something really good in your past life to get a priceless gem :)
