Back home, after putting the gals to nap, my mil and hubby went to the pasar malam and bought our weekly supply of vegetables, fish and fruits. My mil also bought our favorite 'lok lok' (steamboat) and of course durians! I ate so much lok lok that I am now so bloated. Luckily we are having something light for dinner - porridge. And guess what porridge we are having? It's porridge with dried scallops, dried oysters, chicken and a can of Australian abalones. Sounds yummy eh?

I'll be going out now to the RO water-dispenser across my house to buy some water. I just hope there is still some water left for us to buy. What a bummer!

Cherry --- thanks for advising me to delete some files from my C-drive. I did that but that does not seem to help.
Those who look pretty are also a no-no coz they are most likely to attract men to my house as there are many male foreign workers at my housing estate, thus also risking my safety as well as my 2 gals'. I just need someone who is obedient, initiative, hardworking, trustworthy, good and patient with my 2 naughty gals and one who looks fairly pleasant. I wonder why I am never lucky with getting good maids who are willing to work for me for 10 years or more though I treat my maids so well. I pay for all their toiletries, buy them clothes, pay their phone bills when they call back to Indon without deducting from their salaries, treat them to meals in hotels and restaurants, eat whatever good food we eat yet I am never lucky enough to get one good and loyal maid. I'm just praying that I'll be 5th time lucky this time round.
1) My mom is 61 years old but she certainly looks way younger. She and my dad have young-looking genes, which make me look young too :)
2) My mom has 3 children (2 boys and 1 girl) and I'm in the middle.
3) My mom is super slim and doesn't seem to gain any weight though she is a carbo-addict. So unfair!
4) My mom was a teacher in MGS Ipoh.
5) My mom attends line-dancing classes every week.
6) My mom loves her 2 grand daughters very much and loves to pamper them with gifts.
7) My mom and I used to travel overseas for vacation before I got married.
8) My mom is super health-conscious and eats very bland food as she has some health conditions.
I'm curious to know the following bloggers' mommies 'phats' too :
2) Princess Mom
3) Hui Sia

Disney Winnie The Pooh mooncake.
These are the mooncakes that my sil brought back from Hong Kong. My favorite are the ones with lots of seeds, nuts and strips of roasted bacon. The ain't too sweet and are loaded with seeds and nuts and are very tasty too. There are even Pooh Bear mooncakes from Disney Land. There goes my diet plan..... my calories have far exceeded my output. I guess I have to increase the intensity and duration of my jogging sessions before my pouch becomes a permanent feature!
I must thank QiQi's mom for honouring me with this award. According to the originator of the Nice Matters award it is intended for “those that are just nice people, good blog friends, and those that inspire good feelings and inspiration!

4. Erica and Ellisa's Mummy
5. Shern's Mummy
6. Chloe's Mummy
After American buffet breakfast at the Exec Lounge, the gals went to the pool again. After swimming, we all had our shower and then I took a mid-morning nap whilst the gals watched cartoon. Just before we checked out, we went to Chyna Chinese Restaurant for Dim Sum.
It was 1.5 days of pure bliss, fun, eating and sleeping for everyone. The gals even had a beautiful tan on their bodies. Whilst the gals, my maid and I enjoyed ourselves, poor hubby had a terrible bout of food poisoning. He purged and vomited the whole night and even had to drive himself to the clinic whilst we had fun in the hotel.
We are planning the next hotel stay at Shangri-La Hotel.

Alycia and Sherilyn all set and raring to go swimming.
After 1.5 days of continuous fun and excitement, the gals were so tired that they were completely knocked off within minutes of getting into the car on the way home.

Minnie Mouse water tumbler from Disney Land HK
Organic yoghurt bars, crackers, biscuits and chocolates
These are some of the Disney souvenirs and organic goodies that sil#1 bought from Hong Kong for the gals. There were also bars of Whittaker's Almond Gold chocolate which is my favorite - a chocolate filled with generous chunks of roasted almonds. There goes my diet plan - flying off the window with sooooo much good food, chocolates, mooncakes, dinner in restaurants and of course durians!

My mil cooked this very tasty and simple-to-cook pork ribs dish the other day. No garlic or onions or frying are needed.
All you need are :
2 tablespoons Lee Kum Kee 'hoisin' sauce (seafood sauce)
2 tablespoons tau cheong (fermented soya bean paste)
1 tablespoon Oyster sauce
1 teaspoon black sauce
A dash of sugar or half slice of brown sugar in strips (as they come in strips / slices)
Put pork ribs into a pot and pour water into the pot enough to just cover the pork ribs. Bring water to a boil. When water is boiling, pour all the sauces into the pot and let the pork ribs stew in the sauces in very slow fire for about 1/2 hour. Be sure to toss and turn the pork ribs consistently. When the sauce turns thick and pork ribs turn tender, turn off fire and serve.

Unfortunately, few companies can afford to hire a full-time IT department to help them with their networking needs. That's why you'll like BNC. BNC is a Dallas Computer Service consulting firm that can help your company with issues ranging from SPAM filtering to planning for and testing a disaster recover plan, in case somebody accidentally deletes everything on your computers. I know you'll be happy you let a qualified consulting firm help take your company to the next level with improved computer networking.
These are the original Crocs that my sil bought the gals from Hong Kong. I think I like them more than my gals. Have a look at the Disney characters accessories for the Crocs, they look so cute and cool on the Crocs. For me, I don't think I'd buy originals as they are so costly. I'll most likely buy the RM8.99 ones from Giant or Tesco, haha.

I got the latest Agnis b. t-shirt.

Deep-fried boneless chicken chop.
Sherilyn enjoying the 'look look'.
Word of caution : kids are to eat this under close adult supervision as the satay stick is very sharp.

Last night, for the first time in their lives, Alycia and Sherilyn played with lanterns and lit up candles outside our porch.
Alycia with her beloved mah mah.
But she was sooooo sleepy that she just couldn't move her body or swallow her milk and she just lay asleep on the couch like a log like this :
