Dear Santa….

…. I’ve been a good girl this year, Santa. I wish for the same ole crap as last year – more shopping, less housework and more money falling from the sky. TQ ๐Ÿ˜†

Sing this with the tune of “Santa Claus is Coming to Town”. I’m sure you guys will love it –

Little tin horns,
Little toy drums.
and rummy tum tums.

Santa Claus is coming to town.

Little toy dolls
that cuddle and coo,
Elephants, boats
and Kiddie cars too.

Santa Claus is coming to town.

The kids in Girl and Boy Land
will have a jubilee.
They’re gonna build a toyland town
all around the Christmas tree.

Oh….You better watch out,
You better not cry.
You better not pout,
I’m telling you why.

Santa Claus is comin’ to town.

Christmas Ornaments & Curious Child

Christmas is not complete without a heavily decorated tree with glitering blinking lights. Not forgetting the pressies under the trees and the family members around it.

Pictures took in Ikano over the weekend. More pics to come especially ME! with Santa Claus and his faithful helper. Not the elves but Santarina giving out sweets ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh, talking about Ikano, Scooby Doo is there too.

He so remind me of yesteryears where we’ll go shouting Scooby Dooby Dooooooooooooooooo…..

New 2007 Diary/Organizer

What is the first thing you do when you received a new diary/organizer? I bet 100% in human soul everyone will turn to the first page and write their name down. Tell me if I’m wrong ๐Ÿ˜€

And what is the 2nd thing you do? I’ll start searching for the page with public holiday listing on it.

Highlighter is your best friend at this moment.


In a very unrelated event, yesterday was the public holiday for Peejay folks. Too bad, I’m working in KayEL. Boohoo. So, Princess tagged along with me to the office.

Can you imagine she’s glued to the puter the whole day surfing for Barbie stuff?

Good thing is, one of my collegue is absent and Princess can have the puter all to herself.

Another incident that makes me recite rulez #2 to her:

“…our lunch hour is from 12.30pm to 1.15pm. Now already 1.40pm and you are still eating your chicken rice…!”

of course she don’t understand what I’m trying to tell her. Nevermind. Anyway, rulez are meant to be bend *ngek…

Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!

For friends or bloggers who is on my msn or ym list, I’m glad you enjoy my singing a-christmas song-a-day-keeps-the-crazy-hormones-at-bay *cough*. Thank you very much. And Albie did it again with his post with a tinge of lyrics hidden in there somewhere which makes me even wanna sing out loud.

This is my all time favourite. Whenever I listen to the song, my mind will wonder afar, the snow outside… the fireplace… snuggle under the warm blanket…. the cuddles…

Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we’ve no place to go
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

It doesn’t show signsof stopping
And I’ve bought some corn for popping
The lights are turned way down low
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

When we finally kiss goodnight
How I’ll hate going out in the storm!
But if you’ll really hold me tight
All the way home I’ll be warm

The fire is slowly dying
And, my dear, we’re still goodbying
But as long as you love me so
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

What is your favourite Christmas song?

My Secret Admirer is getting married…

๐Ÿ˜ฅ *sigh…..

Not going to write anything about him here since I don’t want hubby to kill me to get suspicious!

He’s handsome… fair… smart… looks like TOM CRUISE!!! I think that’s enough to kill your curiosity.

Since he’s no longer available, I’ll have to go find another Secret Admirer *sigh…

The vacancy is waiting to be filled. And my criteria will still be the same. Handsome… fair…. smart… looks like TOM CRUISE!!!

Rather shock with the news but I will still wish the couple – Many Happy Return and here’s a little gift for you.

I know I’m ๐Ÿ‘ฟ *ngek

Scene from a Bookshelf shopping

Over the weekend, we was scouting for a bookshelf for eldest Princess as we are getting her ready for Standard One next year and I bet, she will have loads of text book and exercise books. While we are there to grab a bookshelf, we intend to get a shoe cabinet too.

The place is very huge. The show room occupied something like 6 shoplots. While we were busy scouting and looking around the place, kids was running around and last that I remember, eldest Princess took my digi cam as she said there is a nice swing out there very suitable for camwhoring!!! I didn’t take her words seriously as I know I’m a fussy shopper and would like to scan thru the whole place without missing any piece of furniture.

Back home, this is what I’ve found safely tuck in a corner of my memory stick…

๐Ÿ˜ Like mother like daughter.

The two Sister and Brother take turns to be photographer wannabe.

Fliming in Action – Anna and the…. King! Sawadeekappppp… or was he a Buddha? *shrug

The following pic is so nicely taken, I’m impressed!

pheewittttt…. I won’t say I have beautiful children but they aren’t ugly either ๐Ÿ™‚

This is definitely not “Like mother like daughter” cause I don’t camwhore to this extend *sticking out tongue*.

Impressive huh.

Okie, back to my bookshelf. I’ve got what I want… but not really. The most important is the bookshelf.

Finally, some story books that have been lying around our dining table had a place called HOME! I’ve not done with the books yet. There is 90% more to come. Gah!
The only thing that I can’t get is the shoe cabinet. They are either no ready stock or $$$. All this is no ordinary wood. They are teak wood which is pure and long lasting. But I got something that double ups as shoe cabinet.

wOOt! Lift up the top cover and it can double ups as a shoe storage or anything you prefer. Note the depth of the storage. It can fit Princess ankle boot.

Again talking about Christmas this early?

The sales is here! The sales is here! Woohoo!!!

I’ve book all my weekends for shopping from now till Christmas. Not that I have lots to buy. Just to immerse myself in Chrismassy mood.

I’ve started my shopping spree yesterday in Parkson mainly buying school necessity for eldest Princess that is 5 sets 3 sets of school pinafore and 2 pairs of school shoes. Her surprise Christmas present will be a Barbie school bag with wheels. :mrgreen: sheesh…thinking of killing 2 birds with a stone. Actually I learn this trick from my mom! lol. We are just a middle income earner. We can’t afford to larvish our children with expensive gift. A gift is a gift but a gift is a gift ๐Ÿ˜ฏ .

Have you put up your tree? Christmas tree, of course. Duhh! I’m doing that tomorrow. First of all, I need to do some serious spring cleaning and get a new bookshelf to accommodate Princess rubbish school books as currently the dining table is her study table and the dining table is also her bookshelf. Can you imagine the husband and wife only took up 0.5 meter square feet of the dining table to enjoy their meal? And three quarter of the table is full of her their stationaries.

The week after next, we are going to Ikea. Woohoo!!! I miss their meatballs. I can’t wait for that. And their cranberry sauce…. and their free flow of drinks…. and their soft cone. woohoo!!! I have to get a new shelf (again!) for the kitchen as currently, my microwave oven is sitting on the study table and I need to move that giant thing to the kitchen to make way for Princess as currently the dining table is her study table. Wait, did I just mentioned that? Hmm…. nevermind.

Basically, this whole month I get to do something that I called…. HOBBY!

Shop, shop, shop!

Eat, eat, eat!
