I don’t gamble often but I’ve been to several casinos in my life. I just don’t think of visiting a casino as something fun. I rather spend my time walking around the mall instead of just sitting there gambling. I’ve heard of online gambling but I’ve never tried it before because I don’t know where to go. I stumble upon a website call online casino review that reviews the best online casinos worldwide. They have a team of about 20 editors reviewing top online casinos and rating them. By using online casino review I can safely choose any website that I enjoy and happy within a short time. With this website I’m also able to see the features offered and information needed to start playing online since I have no experience at all with online gambling. Knowing that these websites has been tried and reviewed by other people I can just enjoy and relax gambling at the comfort of my home during my free time.

Going on a date

When I first met my hubby let's just say that he was not very experience in going out with girls. It's not that he hasn't had girlfriends before but I think he was not just one of the guys like you would see in the movies. The very first time we went out we went to McDonalds for dinner. How romantic huh and I'll never let him forget that..LOL but now he's so much better than he was when I first went out with him.
Last weekend I was bored staying home and was getting hungry. I suggested to hubby "let's go pak toh [Cantonese] (go on a date)". He said how do you want to go pak toh? Go for dinner, walk around and watch a movie? I don't really like to watch movies in the cinema for some reason therefore we don't really go to the cinema. I told him we'll go for dinner and walk around after that but we'll just skip the movie part. Knowing that I don't really care to go to the cinema he was fine with it. So after dinner at a Mexican restaurant we went shopping because that's a good way to burn some calories. We ended up with these purchases:

Kitchenaid stand mixer
Black and Decker food processor

We've been wanting the mixer for a long time because it's like one of the best out there and since I like baking so much hubby thinks that it'll go to good use and it's suppose to last forever. I also made a chocolate chip cheesecake the same day when he heard my old cheap hand mixer didn't sound too energize I would say and he suggested that we should get it now. He's so excited about it that he said that I had to make something this weekend. He said that he will operate the mixer just let him help. The mixer is really heavy and I am really looking forward to using it but I'll let hubby play with it first since he's really excited about it.
I've been wanting a food processor for a long time. I use to have a small food processor that my sis's friend gave me when she left the country. It was cheaper and it didn't really work anymore. I was trying to chop up some meat one day and the meat just went round and round and round and wouldn't chop up so I decided that it was time to go in the garbage. I also wanted a food processor because I know that I could use a food processor to make pastry crust if I didn't want to use my hand (at that time I didn't know that we were getting the mixer).
The week before Valentine's day hubby asked if we should get a PSP for OUR Valentine's Day present and I told him that we are not going to get anything for Valentine's Day anyway and why would he want a PSP all of a sudden. He won't have time to play with it during the week. He gave me a bunch of reason some of it was when we travel we can play games, watch movies, go online and we can even load tons of Stanley's picture in there. He said that we could make use of it when we go to Texas (I didn't think my manager would hesitate to approve my vacation). Since he gave me such a sweet surprise on Valentine's Day I told him that I would get that for him for his Valentine's Day present but he actually still insist that it's US. When ever one of us one something we would always use the word US so that we don't feel so bad buying it actually..LOL..I am always a sucker..when he does something nice for me even if it's just a small thing I will let him get away with murder..arghh but oh well at least I am able to use it too.
I better go get ready...I'm hungry now and hubby suggested that we go pak toh again. I told him that we should go McD's because I feel like some fast food and hubby said just like the first time we went out to eat?LOL..I'm also hoping that we don't need to spend more money this week and have explanation for our purchases huh..I guess having explanation for out purchases makes me feel less guilty because we kind off do need it right?*roll eyes*

I am just glad that the weekend is here. I can curl up in bed read a book or go on the computer to do what I like. I don’t need to face horrible and fake people around me. I can be in my comfort zone and be with the people I love. Life is full of challenges and we expect that but something is just not expected. Some people make life to be full of drama and they want other people involved in it. I just wish that they would ask if other people want to be involved in it before they start having you as one of the casts.

I am a person that shows my feeling. If I’m sad people will know I’m sad if I don’t like someone I won’t be rude to that person but I’ll not associate with them that’s just how I am. I know be nice to the person and behind their back stab them with a knife. I really truly have to learn hard to accept that there are A LOT of people that are fake and are just two faced bitch out there. I am saying bitch because all these people are mostly women. I as a women myself are just too shock to see the behavior of some of these women.

I have to not let them bother me and not let them spoil my weekend. What ever it is it can wait until Monday and be dealt with at work where is suppose to be and where it all started. I am also not going to let the problem taunt me or bother me.

Feeling much better..

I’m on the road to feeling better. When I posted about finding peace in me it wasn’t because I am having PMS it was because there were a lot of office politics going on in my work place that I had to deal with. I came home and talked to hubby and also listed to some Buddhist talks from Ajahn Brahm. I first got hold of some disc from my parents and listened to it. He’s not like any monk that wants you to believe that Buddhism is the best and you have to believe in it etc..I like his talks and it calms me down. He talks about a lot of general stuff but with meaning that helps me stay more peaceful. Even hubby that freaks out about religions because they always force people believing that one religion is more superior like Ajahn Brahm. I am really glad that my parents introduce me to listening to him because it really helped me a great deal in dealing with my office matter now it would only help me control my bad temper I think it’ll be perfect but it’s all in me and I have to deal with it myself.

I might not be able to go to Texas for my SIL’s wedding because I’ve not worked in this company long enough and my manger thinks that I’m still training. She also mentioned that I’ve already taken two days off in my short period of time working here. The first time I had to take off was because I was really sick and the second time was because I had my immigration stuff to deal with. It’s no excuses and I understand her point of view so if she doesn’t approve my vacation I understand but yet I cannot help being disappointed. I have my fingers cross hoping we can work something out and to make matter more complicating my team leader is quitting and he last day is this Friday so it’s going to be really busy within my department and I’m supposed to be helping but I’m hoping that she would allow me to do what I need to do whatever the weekend before and after I get back. Sometimes things aren’t just how its planned I assume.

Finding peace

I dislike office politics. I dislike people stabbing other people behind their back. I feel like if they have a problem with someone they should go to that person and talk to them. I hate it when someone is nice to you and the very same time back stabbing you. I know that it's part of life but all I want is a peaceful life. A job that I enjoy going to and a home that I feel comfortable. Sometimes things just don't come out as we want them to but deep inside me I believe that I am able to come to that point. I don't want to cause any controversy with anyone I just want to be happy and in peace. I'm thankful to have a wonderful family, hubby and a puppy. All of these things are the strength that keeps me going when I'm unhappy. We are face with many challenges everyday but I just want my challenges to be the minimum. Life should seem easier in a small town and a small group of people but it's not always the case.

I need to be more prepared to face challenges and to overcome it. I should not let things bother me but thing always end up taunting me and bothering me. All I can do is keep my thoughts away from the unhappy things and go on with my day. I want to be able to relax, maybe meditate and try and find peace. I hope that time will bring me more peace. I should not let something that I have no control of to bother me. I will try and I will try hard. Knowing that people that knows the real me and that loves me will support me and always be there for me. I’m happy. I hope that everyone else will have less “problems” that I have. I will try and be my happy self and not let it bother me. Look forward to things ahead of me. I just need to find the strength I need to let me go thru this.

Happy Valentine's Day

The very first year of Valentine's Day hubby and I dated he bought me a huge bear and roses. I bought him a watch. The years after that I really don't remember or we didn't get each other anything for Valentine's day anymore. This year I assumed that it would be the same deal. I went to work, came home and quickly made dinner. I figure it's Valentine's Day I should at least make him a home cook meal. After dinner I was getting ready to take a shower and all of a sudden he asked whether was I going to go into the bedroom and proceeded to ask me to go inside our bedroom. When I went in and turn on the lights I found this....

I was really surprise to see this because I didn't think that he was going to get me anything since we agreed that we will not get each other anything. I didn't get him anything what so ever. I feel so bad now because I didn't even attempt to get him a card! I guess I'm going to have to make it up to him.

I love you baby, thank you for the wonderful surprise and gift.

Hubby loves to buy me teddy bear. Almost every occasion he'll get me a teddy bear. Stanley went crazy when he saw the bear. He was barking at it and wanted to bite it. He goes crazy when we put any of my bears in front of him. It was really funny seeing him looking and barking at the bear. My poor boy will have to get use to having soft toys eventually..Daddy was so mean as he was taunting him with the bear because he went was actually pretty funny LOL..

Anyway I just want to wish everyone a very Happy Valentine's Day may you enjoy your self with your love one.

I was getting ready to leave work yesterday evening when my head just started to hurt. I tried to ignore it and went home to do my thing. After dinner I was surfing on the computer for about 30minutes and still having the headache. I then decided to take an aspirin and head to bed. I went to bed at about 9pm and slept the whole night..I got up at about 5am feeling refresh but seeing that it's still so early I went back to bed which I should not have because it only made more tired. Anyway when my alarm first rang I was surprise that Stanley didn't start whining to be let out so I just pressed snooze and went back to bed. After a couple of times I decided to wake up to let him out of his crate but to my surprise I found him on the bed! I quickly woke his daddy up and asked him how come he was on our bed. Daddy said that he might have forgotten to lock his crate after several time questioning him to find out that he never did ask him to go to his crate. Daddy said that Stanley was just so comfortable sleeping between us and didn't move at all that he just left him on the bed..%^&..I told daddy that Stanley had ONE accident the other day and we have to go back on our training because he is not allowed to have even ONE accident..Apparently daddy ignored what I said! Daddy said that he's such a good boy that he didn't want to ask him to go back in his crate *faint*. I thought I was the only one spoiling him but apparently daddy he climbs over daddy's head too..I refuse to board Stanley here next month (if my vacation is approved) when we go over to my SIL's wedding in Texas because I will miss him and I feel bad if we did it. We took him from the shelter and I've done research that if we bored him it might traumatize him because he might think that we're abandoning him again therefore I decided that we will take him with us and bored him for a couple of days there but thank god SIL said that we can leave him there during the day therefore I think we don't even need to bored him....hooray..I am so happy and I'm just hoping that my vacation will be approved so I can actually go *fingers cross*.

Double Chocolate Chip Muffins

We went up to the cabin this past weekend. When I got home I was really tired from the trip and from the lack of sleep. On our way home we had to stop by the grocery store to get some milk and other necessity. It was so cold outside that all I wanted to go was go home and also because I had a ton of things to do when I get home (was planning on doing it anyway). After some of the chores was done I took a bath and was just browsing the web and suddenly thought of making some muffins so that I take it to work for breakfast. I used to eat breakfast before I go to work but to try and get to work early so I can get a good parking spot I decided to just eat breakfast at my desk therefore not only do I have to think of what to bring/cook for lunch I think breakfast too.

Double Chocolate Chip Muffins


1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup chocolate chips plus some to sprinkle on the muffin

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup cocoa, sifted if lumpy

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 egg

1 cup milk

1/3 cup cooking oil

1 teaspoon vanilla

Combine all-purpose flour, chocolate chips, sugar, cocoa, salt and baking powder in a mixing bowl. Create a well in the center. Beat egg in a small bowl. Add milk, cooking oil, and vanilla. Stir and pour into well. Stir until just moistened. Grease 12 muffin cups with cooking spray. Fill cups 3/4 full. Sprinkle a little more chocolate chips.Bake at 400°F (205°C) for 15-18 minutes until golden.

Extra money for the New Year

Hubby and I love to spend money. After having a little puppy we not only spend money on ourselves but I love to buy things for the puppy too. We just gave the little fellow a hair cut and since its winter here I am planning on buying him a jacket/sweatshirt. Before his teacher and ever one else said that Stanley didn’t need any jacket because he has thick fur and he is not cold when he goes outside but since his fur is really short now I would like to buy him a one for when we go on long walks in case he gets cold outside. There is a website a blogging website out there that allows you to blog there. It is also a website that has video sharing and you can win gift cash and prizes for their weekly contest. How cool is that sharing you web video and having a chance to win money or prize. I should take this opportunity to try to earn more money.

Dad is quite interested in sports and seeing that he’s living in Malaysia a country used to be ruled by British; he’s quite interested in Rugby games. I came across RBS 6 an official website for European international tournament. The offer a variety of interesting things such as list of tournament news, fixtures and results, interactive games and podcasts sections for six nations fans. The six nations that are in this website is England, France, Ireland, Italy, Wales and Scotland. I should inform daddy about this website so that he can browse around during his free time (seeing that he’s retired) and click around the website. He can also tell his friends about it and they can play the interactive games together. I think he’s going to have so much fun with this website. I just hope he don’t spend an mass amount of time here that he neglects doing his other chores to help mummy out around the house LOL.
