I'm so glad the week is over. I've been so lazy this week and I've been leaving my house later than usual resulting in not getting a parking spot. I had to park at the visitors parking(which we are not allowed to do so) for three days because I had to park my car and get into the office to be on time. If I don't park at the visitors parking I would have to park pretty far away and I won't make it on time. Since it was Friday today I decided to wake up as soon as the alarm rings but I still didn't get out of the house any earlier but I wasn't rushing which is a good thing.

I work on average about 8.5-10hours a day therefore I try and enjoy my weekends. Honestly, I think I only have a day off in a week that's also if I don't need to go into to work on a Saturday. Sunday I spend my day doing laundry, cleaning the house, getting groceries, cooking up a storm and other stuff around the house therefore I don't really think that Sunday is my rest day although most of the time I enjoy what I'm doing especially cooking. It's a lot of work especially if I try and make every single thing from scratch but then I really think it's worth while. I try and cook more on Sundays so that hubby and I will lunch for the week (mostly me) and more to freeze for other days and also dinner. Very seldom I cook after work because I get pretty tired when I get back from work. On weekends is also the time I get to spend with Stanley and I have to bath him every weekend too (mostly on Sunday but depending on what we do on Saturdays because if he gets dirty on Saturday I won't wait till Sunday to bath him).

Hubby will normally try and spend his Sundays doing his homework if we have nothing going on that day therefore I will either get stuff done of sit on my butt to watch shows and frankly I think it's better if I move around although cooking food is not a really good exercise too. I know I just go back from supposedly vacation but it was really rush and it wore me out more than relaxing me. I think I need another vacation..
Wish I can do that soon!

Mobile Phones

I love mobile phones. If I could I would change them every year and so far it seems like it’s kind of happening. The last cell phone I bought was the Sony Ericsson w810. Hubby and I love that phone and the feature. We loved it so much that he bought another for himself in December. It is not that I am ungrateful but I have been itching to get another phone. Hubby just got another work phone and I want to get one too. I’ve never had a slider phone and I’ve been thinking about getting one. I can get a phone from my carrier but will have to renew my contract or I can buy it else where. On one of my mission to see where I can buy unlock mobile phone apart from ebay I stumble upon iMobilePlaza. They are one of Indonesia leading wholesaler/retailer for mobile phone. Their online store sells not only brand new but also unlock phones which is great for me because I don’t have to mess with unlocking the phone. Will have to ask hubby to look at the website and decide which phone for me. :)

Web hosting

When hubby started his own business he told me to design a webpage for his company. I am not creative or even remotely good at designing anything with the computer. I would really love to learn and I have books and tutorial about web designing etc but I just don’t have the time to slowly learn from trial and error. Learning how to design a website is very time consuming more over we will need to find a good and dependable hosting site. I was lost for a while thinking that I will not have time to help hubby with anything but I used my extra time and did research also asked around for help. One day, I found Kaushal Sheth’s website. She’s offers guide to web hosting, recommending some of the best web hosting companies and she can even design themes and templates for a minimal price. Not only can she help hubby design a theme for his website but I am thinking of asking her to design a template for my blog too..LOL..Hopefully she’s the solution to all the webpage stuff..

It's been a great and tiring journey for me since I started work. I'm enjoying every my journey very much although there are some disturbing once in there but I will not let it bring me down. I've learned to accept it; be disturbed by it but yet go on with my life without worrying/caring about those things.
I was luckily enough to have my vacation approved so that I could go for my SIL this past weekend. It was a really pretty wedding and I'm really glad that I made it. I fell in love with Houston, Texas when I first saw it and having to know some people there really made it all worthwhile.
FIL and I after the wedding..

We started our journey on last Wednesday night (12/3/2008)right after work. Stanley was so excited to see us load up the car and was just being difficult the first 24hrs of the ride. He was getting too excited and was making a lot of noise which I just filter it out but hubby could not do that so he was basically upset with Stanley. We drove till about 2am and stopped by a rest area to take a nap and Stanley was just all over still from being excited and barking. Finally we managed to take a couple hours of nap before continuing our journey. Stanley was finally better. He was tired and slept most of the time. He then learned that we would be in the car for the next 12-15hours. The journey to Houston,TX is about 23 hours. We were beat by the time we got there but I was just too anxious to see the things there and obviously to go shopping although this vacation I actually failed to buy anything. The only one thing I bought was a maroon sweater. I was actually looking forward to buy some abercrombie jeans and maybe a coach bag but time didn't permit me to do so. There were so many things to do, people to spend time with yet so little time. I told my FIL and MIL that I would stay there in a heart beat. YES I love it so much there, I love the weather there I love the different culture and of course staying in the city that I just want to stay behind and not come home to this cold cold place.

We had to bored Stanley while we were in Houston because we didn't want to inconvenient hubby's sister or his aunt and uncles. I was so worried that Stanley would be traumatize when we pick him up but luckily he was just his little self..I was worried because Stanley is very attached to us especially me. Stanley needs to be by either one of us all the time. Even when he's laying on one of us some other part of his body needs to touch the other one too.*slap head*
This was taken when we went up to the cabin the last time. Had to sit on daddy's lap even though daddy was driving because mummy refused to let him sit on her lap.

Finally taking a nap but on the suitcase when there was plenty of room.

Trying to go to sleep on the bed in the hotel. Had to sleep with us even though there was two queen size bed!

Cat napping on the smooth surface.

Kepohing(Being a busybody) at the balcony that grandparents rented in Texas

Lazing on grandparent's bed before they arrived.

We went to Keenah (beach side). The Saturday we were there. It was a record setting weather because it was so hot out (but I love it)..Got a slight tan.

Our journey home was also long. Stanley was really good on the way. He would stand on the suitcase so that he's taller and look out the window or he would just take cat naps. Daddy was very pleased with him. I felt like I left my heart in Houston because I love that place so much. We came home to the cold and windy state..sob sob..I was so excited to be at a warm place I forgot to pack some thicker clothing for my way home. I was cold until I arrived home because I was not properly dress. I also came home to a bunch of chores! I had tons of laundry to do, house to clean up, and also knowing that I know I have datelines at work but at the same time my heart was not here already.
Silly boy..

Although we are slowly trying to adapt again (which is insane because we were only gone for a couple of days) but it still sucks because it's still snowing even though spring is suppose to be here already. I called FIL on my way home from work and told him not to come home because it's windy, cold and snowing. I told him to ask my MIL to stay there is she could because it really sucked being here..:P...My FIL said he could not wait to come back to this weather (which everyone agree he's a little sick :P).

Will be back

It's been a long and hectic journey for me this past few months. There is a lot to blog about yet so little time. I'm tired every night when I get back from work. Stories just have to wait decisions has to be made and things has to get done. I'm hoping I'll be able to swing back into a better schedule and have more time to myself, hubby and Stanley.

iPod Skin

iPod is a very popular device among everyone that loves technology especially the younger generations. There are plenty of accessories out there to personalized my very own iPod. SkinIT offers a variety of artistic skin to decorate your ipod shuffle, iPod mini, any mp3 player or any of your favorite devices. All skin devices are easily removed without leaving any residue and also easy to reapply when you want a different skin. With SkinIT it gives reflects our very own taste and passions. They offers thousands of designs for thousands of devices out there that includes professional sport league, entertainment, colleges, exclusive art, fashion and many more. I was just thinking since MIL is planning to get an iPod for herself maybe I should recommend her to get some iPod skins for her new iPod to reflect her very own personality. Maybe I should ask hubby if we should get some for our cell phones since my cell phone is horribly scratched from dropping on the back top several times.

Apple Cake

I made an apple cake two Saturdays ago because we had some apples left that I bought and never ate it. I took some to work for some nice co workers and hubby ate them all. Hubby loves it that he ate it none stop ever after I was done baking. I almost didn't have enough to take it to work for my co workers. This recipe is a good way to get ride of apples that's not fresh and getting soft.

Apple or Pear Cake
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs , beaten
3/4 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
4 or more big apples or pears (if you want to be able to bite/taste the apples cube it bigger)


1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup milk

1/4 lb butter


Mix all cake ingredients by hand in order given.

Pour in a greased 9 x 13 inch pan or springform pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes and remove.


In saucepan mix all ingredients and bring to a slow boil for 3 minutes.

Pour over cake and return to oven for 4 minutes.

No mixer or tons of dishes needed..Love yummy yet simple recipes.

Getting better..

Things is slowly looking better. I'm getting used to working on my own stuff and taking over stuffs because my group is not complete. I'm also going to be moving to my friend's M's group..I'm not going to need to deal with "those" people anymore. I've not spoken to the witch since last Monday and although she's in my team I think I'm doing a GREAT job of ignoring her. I don't care if she thinks that I'm stuck up or if she feel guilty. She can kiss my ass unless she apologize to me for starting the havoc/problems. My weekend was great..I got to catch up on my TVB movies after months and relax because hubby had to work most of the Saturday and later in the evening we went out dinner with friends and their 15months old baby..He was really good while we were all eating..He's really cute..

Another good news is my new team leader (soon to be hopefully *fingers cross*)and my manager has approved my vacation..Yippieee..that means I get to go for my SIL's wedding in Texas. Initially I didn't have to worry about my outfit that I was going to wear for her wedding but not that I'm able to go I'm starting to get a little freaked out. Luckily I have a dress I was planning to wear if I didn't get to find another one and so now I just have to find a pair of pumps/sandals to go with it. I'm so very excited because this is a much needed vacation for both hubby and I. Daddy doesn't want to bring the little puppy with and wants to leave board him here but I insisted on taking my little baby with therefore we've agreed that we'll take him with and board him there for a couple of days at least I can go visit him there. Mummy will not leave you to some strangers for the amount of time that we'll be gone because mummy will miss him tons. It's going to be an interesting drive and I'm hoping that he'll eventually settle down. He's been so spoiled. He's been sleeping with us (in between us) every night and has been a really good boy. Some evenings when we are outside in the living room doing our stuff he'll just jump in bed and sleep on daddy's side because he's used to me being on my side at night when I go to bed first. I think he'll whine his little head off if he has to go in his crate at night. He's really good about going in his crate in the morning when we have to go to work therefore I am allowing him to sleep with us on the bed as I don't want him to feel coop up in there all the time.
