Learn from yesterday

This is my first post in 2013.

Though I didn't do a recap of my 2012 in my previous post, I feel like writing down my 3 happiest moments in 2012.
1. We visited Seoul, Korea in June. Korea is a beautiful country. I could see many flower boys and pretty girls on street. I bought my HCP directly from Korea.
2. I found a skincare regimen that allows me to have flawless, fair, and glowing skin that I long for.  Now I can go out confidently with my bare skin.
3. I met up with HHBC finally. They are a bunch of humble and happy bloggers. They are not hamsap at all in actual person.

I have some thoughts and pictures that I would like to share with everyone.
If you still remember my rant here, these were the text that I reprimanded them to write on white board on Christmas day.  My two girls never a naughty girls, but they just don't like to address their grand parents, teachers, uncles&aunties and etc. So I wanted them to write down what they need to do when meeting people. These texts are still there today. I told them, I will only erase the text when I have seen them having good manners.

April has started with Chinese New Year craft at her Art and Craft lesson. She needs to do 2 big lanterns. I helped her with the 24 small parts on yesterday morning. Can't wait to see her finishing the whole lantern.

We attended Children New Year Party that organized by the club in yesterday fternoon.

Both of my girls took part in 6 games, and April managed to win 5 prizes, whereas May won 3 prizes.

I wanted to thank the organizer for organizing such a successful Children party, all the kids were having fun in the event.

My youngest baby is now Standard 1 in Primary School.

I am not taking off today to send them to school. Thanks to their papa for doing such a good job in tying their hair, getting them ready and sending them to school on this first day of school reopen.

On New Year eve, we slept at around10.30pm, so we didn't do 2013 New Year count down. I was awaken by some firework when the clork strick 12am.

In 2013, I will certainly continue baking and working out.

I have started to train my girls for Chinese New Year songs singing competition which is going to held in their school by end of this month.

  3. We also count down in our bed snoring away every new year's eve. Hahaha...

    My boy also "forgets" to greet (he says he's shy) sometimes, especially those he sees once a bluemoon. I have to remind him and hopefully it sticks in his mind after the 978th reminder.

    2. Eh! Hot Mama I wanted to order extras to give some relatives who would only eat nothing but the best. So I have to pay lah. Maybe 1 tin for Mama Anay will be good. Thank you.

    3. No worries, Anay. No need to pay, it comes from pack like I gave you all the other day. Not in tin. I buy you bigger pack this time. So you can divide into smaller tins for your uncles and aunties.

  9. My Japanese friend in US who married a Mat Salleh contacted me today. She complained that her teenage daughter called her a "BITCH" in the public on New Year's day. She was so upset until now and asked me what she should do??
    I should tell her to send her BITCH daughter to Taiping and let Yannie train & rotan her.

    You have the wisest methods to bring up your kids! They are so obedient and good until Papa also wanna tie their hair so pretty!

    1. My father's side got 7 brothers and 10 sisters! My tongue always dried up and exhausted calling them.

    2. I don't remember I got problem addressing people when I was young. But, my girls' mouths are really too tight already. I always blame jin jin for this type of tight mouth.

    3. i think it is a modern trend..
      people just call aunty and uncle...
      not like following their seniority...

      Delete
    4. My dad and mom have many siblings and relatives that I called each and every one of them each time we met. I like it when the elders said I'm a good girl. Maybe I get contented easily, such simple praise would motivate me more :D

      Children nowadays are different. They are more spoiled, including mine.

    2. hahaha, maybe the hamsap one pretended to be naive and also another hamsap one didn't turn up, so you think the HHBc gathering wasn't that hamsap at all?? :p

    3. Go in December and ski from South Korea into North Korea mountains! That will be fun!

    5. Don't need to compare with the flower boys there, you just need to say "anyong haseyo" and "kamsahamnida" to their pretty girls and bring one back to Malaysis to show off to anay and SP.
