The Next Best Thing to M&M

…. is Reese’s Peanut Buttercup.

They are so good, so, I have to ugly’fied the photo or else, each time I look at the photo, I will be drooling on my keyboard. =.=’

Ok, I have exaggerated too much.  I did not ugly’fied the photo but thanks to the iPhone camera which does not do a good job in macro. Blueh!

For those who are on diet pills, don’t eat too much of Reese’s.  They are very fattening cos they are… Peanutbutter!

Me And My Significant Other – Part 5

After more than 10 years in marriage, I started to feel the difference and changes in my Significant Other.  Man do change – either to better or worst.  It all changes according to things surrounding us like jobs, etc.  Mine used to have sense of humor but now, you don’t know when he can take a joke and when he cannot.  It seem man do go thru a series of PMS too.  That is when their testosterone level was high and they tend to lost their temper and at other time, they are not.  Who says men are easy to understand???!!!

Gaga Uh La La

I am a radio person and no longer a TV person cos I spent too much time on the pc and my kids is hogging the TV all the time.  I listen to the radio in the morning on my way to work and evening, while on my way back.   I recognized singer by their song and their voice but not their face.  Pathetic, I know.

And now this thing about Lady Gaga.  My kids and me love her song.  I have not seen her MTV before and one day, someone posted one of her MTV on Facebook  condemning her clothing.  Holy crow, for an adult viewing I would say that she is HOT!  but her scantily cloth is so inappropriate for kids!  My 5 years old ask me, “Why is Lady Gaga dancing in her pantie?” And it is not a granny pantie.  It is a G-string for goodness sakes!

Now the most shocking news about her is the recent 2010 MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles.   Our dear Miss Lady Gaga arrived at the scene wearing the most outrageous DESIGNER dress that was made from raw meat.

Photo time! (Oh please someone give me a sleeping pills that work cos the more I look at her DESIGNER dress, the more I wanna puke)

From top to toe is covered with raw meat.  Her hat is raw meat, her dress is raw meat, her clutch bag is a piece of ragged raw meat.  Look, it even sway with her while walking (Yucks!) And her boots… was very neatly wrapped up in bacon.  She is really a piece of meat!  Hmm… I wonder if her cloth is fire resistance cos it would be delicious to put her on the barbecue.

What Do You Want To Scan?

When I first put up this new banner, I was asked this question, “Is that barcode real?”

What he meant was if they are the real stuff that can be used on the barcode scanner.  My first thought was, “What do you want to buy?” lol.  But then, if you are really curious, why not try them see if it works.  Let me tell ya, they are part of scrapbooking images with a little of photoshop work to include my nickname there.  Cute right?

Tube Feeding

Before Little Samantha was on tube feeding, my Sister have to spend 2 to 3 hours daily bottle feed her including night feed. Although she did not complain of lack of sleep, we know how much she and my BIL suffered cos both of them lost so much weight.  Sis doesn’t need the corsets to looks thin now.

For first timer like me, I’ve always thought that tube feeding is like a drip that was attached to the body 24/7.  Baby’s tube feeding is different.  Other than the tube that goes in to the nose, the other end of the tube was attached to the machine only during feeding time.  Milk formula was pour into the bag and you just need to hook up all the tubes, set the buttons and leave the machine to do all the 3 hours feeding work, while my Sis can go back to catch her beauty sleep (provided the baby did not cry).

The Hand That Comfort

This is my 5 months old niece, Samantha.  She had a medical condition that I am too lazy to explain.  So let’s jump straight to the point.  Little Sam loves to cry.  Well, maybe she doesn’t love to but she is constantly crying.  And when she cries, oh boy!  It was a loud piercing sound like she was in so much pain.  To keep her comfortable, we showered her with lots of tender loving care and lots of cuddle, of course.  That is when the artificial hand pillow came around.  This pillow has been in the market for quite a while.  If you do a bit of Google, that freaky looking hand can cost a lot of money!  But my Mom decided to DIY.  We bought the glove from the departmental store and filled them with green bean husk.  Mom even go to the extend to sew some embroideries on it.  Hey, it cost us less than RM5.00.  If you haven’t do the Googling like I’ve told you, let me tell you the price.  They sold it at around RM100 per piece!  Other than this hand pillow, Mom sew a few stuff for Little Sam.  Good thing no body claim copy right for stuff like this. LOL!  The next one she is going to sew is the sling.  Nowadays many stay-at-home-Mom ventured into home based business sewing stuff like this.  Why buy when you can make right?

The Eleven Rules of Life

Talking about plagiarism.  One of Bill Gates speech before a group of high school students, he gave them his eleven rules of life. Well, it is actually an excerpt from the book “Dumbing Down our Kids” by educator Charles Sykes.  It is a list of eleven things you did not learn in school and directed at high school and college grads.  Now that eleven rules is make famous by Bill Gates and somehow it landed in my Facebook.  I thought I should post them in my blog too to remind my kids.  They are not only rules, they are the truth about life.

* The one highlighted in red is my thought.

Rule 1: Life is not fair – get used to it! (Nothing in this world is fair!)

Rule 2: The world doesn’t care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won’t be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.

Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss. (If you think your boss is tough, wait till you have a husband and kids!)

Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity.

Rule 6: If you mess up, it’s not your parents’ fault, so don’t whine about your mistakes, learn from them.

Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren’t as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent’s generation, try delousing the closet in your own room. (Refer to rule #4) *rolling eye*

Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they’ll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn’t bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life. (Having good grade is not everything.  It is how much you make at the end of the day.)

Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don’t get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time.

Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs. (@ Kharsyn – Stop calling Justin Bieber!  He won’t pick up the phone!)

Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you’ll end up working for one. (Bill Gates copy this excerpt from the book without realizing he is the nerd.  People actually include a photo of him at the end of the note. Look who’s talking.)
