After having placed the Nuffnang banner in my blogspot blog for more than a year, I finally cashed out the money recently. 2 weeks ago, I got a surprise when I opened an envelope and saw a cheque from Nuffnang. Though it's only for a meagre amount of RM62.36, well at least I still earned some money without having to do anything. This money is enough for me to buy myself a nice pair of sandals for the New Year!

After a few spoonfuls, she abandoned the peanut-mango dessert, for reasons quite obvious....
Top bowl - the peanuts tong sui all stirred and mixed with the mango pudding, untouched and all wasted!

Soya bean, mung beans chips and prawn crackers.
Thomas and Friends jelly and corn snacks.
And a very fragrant box of Sencha greentea for me. Sencha is the most popular green tea in Japan.

BTW, I just discovered that I can do my marketing for cheap veggie, pork, fruits, etc at this wet market at Plaza Central at Old Klang Road that is in an air conditioned building. This place is clean and not like the wet and smelly wet market that we used to go to. If you want to do your marketing, do check out Central.
Anyway, today I still made it to Jungle Gym at Bangsar Shopping Center to meet up with this mummy and my childhood friend, Yi Yi of almost 3 decades. Yi Yi and this mummy are sils. We had a great time there but I wasn't feeling well, so I left early.
Have been really busy with my kids and with my home lately. Really no time to blog. The only time is when my 3 monkeys are fast asleep at night but then, I would also be drop dead exhausted myself. Can't wait for the school to re-open in another week's time!
Feeding Baby C her daily antibiotics and health supplements is another stressful battle I have to grapple with everyday. Each time Baby C cries, struggles, spits out or throws up her meds and health supplements, I would be on the verge of crying myself. If this continues, I will surely worry myself to the mad house. I think I really need some counseling like Neuro Linguistic Programming or NLP to help me overcome my anxiety.
NLP was created by Dr Richard Bandler. It is a way of better understanding how people think - and how you can persuade or influence them to think differently. NLP is a set of ideas and techniques that can help people make many changes in their own life or to help others change. NLP looks at behavioral traits and bad habits. The treatment provides the patient with verbal instructions to reverse the trends of their thoughts.
Paul McKenna is the UK's best-selling non-fiction author of all times and his books are all based on NLP, namely I Can Make You Thin, I Can Make You Rich and Change Your Life in 7 days, among others.
If you think NLP can help you change the life that you’ve always wanted to change or help you alter the way you think, go check out nlpconnections.com. The website is free to join and there are currently over 10,000 members, including top NLP trainers and authors. There is a forum at the website for members to interact, a reviews section, articles, MP3 interviews with trainers, an events calendar and much more. The best thing about the website is that the trainers and authors offer help and advice to members absolutely free of charge!

Organic crackers (roasted garlic with sun-dried tomato) with President Petite Brie cheese as appetiser
Spaghetti with Carborana sauce and chicken ham
Pan-fried salmon fillet
Broiled baby bok choi and baby choi sum
Haegan Dazs ice cream as dessert
After dinner, Alycia and Sherilyn watched TV until midnight. At the stroke of midnight, they opened their X'mas pressies and had a fun-tastic time opening their gifts. We were waiting for some fireworks display at the KL Towers and KLCC but there weren't any. Never mind, New Year's Eve is just days away and we shall stay up again to watch the fireworks display.
Our X'mas tree with lots of pressies under the tree for our 3 angels from the gals' doting aunts, uncle and grand aunts.
Broiled brocolli, baby bok choi and baby choi sum.
Spaghetti with carborana sauce and chicken ham.
Baby C wailing away when she saw hubby's aunties. Baby C tends to cry when she sees unfamiliar faces at home.
2 types of lamb chops.
Pan-fried salmon fillet.

My sil sent us a Panettone Loison bread cake (I think it's a cross between bread and cake) all the way from Hong Kong last week. This bread is made in Italy and tastes a tad like fruit cake but the texture is like bread. It is made of butter, flour, eggs, sugar, oranges and has a very appealing and fragrant butterscotch flavor.
The deliciously mouth-watering bread, with one huge chunk gone.... which went into my tummy!
Thank you tai kar cheh for this lovely bread and all the pressies. You're the best!

1 bowl of soup
3-4 tablespoons of milk powder
1-2 tablespoons of butter
3 slices of Krafts Hi-Calcium singles cheese
Some cherry tomatoes and pumpkin seeds for garnishing
Once the pot of soup is boiling, dump in the milk powder, butter and cheese. Cook for about 1-2 minute and pour the sauce over the cooked spaghetti.
So how did my gals like it? Alycia didn't quite like it coz there were some soya beans in the sauce, which was from the old cucumber soup. Sherilyn loved them to bits and even polished off Alycia's bowl of leftover spaghetti!
BTW, I hardly put her on this Safe n Sound highchair now (which once belonged to both her cheh chehs) as she just can't sit still and can even wriggle out from the safety belt. I must ask hubby to find the highchair table (which he has kept in his office) and attach it back to the highchair. Maybe with the table for her to put her food and toys, she will sit still during meal times.

One bite of this super smooth egg custard could send me half way through to heaven! It ain't too sweet and the caramel tastes soooo good. If I wasn't too concerned about my darn jelly belly, I tell you I can wolf down at least 2 plates of egg custard!

Baby C having a good exercise crawling up the stairs.

Cassandra, where is koong koong? Where is Alycia cheh cheh and Sherilyn cheh cheh? Where is granny and kakak? Where? Where are they?
Baby C then stopped fussing and looked at me with her eyes wide opened, as if she understood me. She then turned her head towards the door, put her left arm up and said "aaaaaa"! When I asked her the same question again, she looked at the door again. I was really very amazed that she actually understood me. Aren't babies amazing?

Last week over breakfast, Sherilyn dropped her hard boiled egg on the floor whilst she was watching TV. I was fuming mad coz I was really busy at that time. Morning times are the busiest for me as I will be feeding Baby C all her supplements and fixing breakfast for my 2 older gals. I hardly ever have the time to sit and eat my breakfast in peace during the school holidays.
The hardboiled egg that Sherilyn the Menace dropped on the floor.
... which eventually went to the bin and she had nothing to eat for breakfast afterward.....
Minutes later, she spilled her cup of sticky loh hon koa herbal drink on the floor! You tell me, would you be angry if you were me?

The turmeric chicken that my dad cooked.
Sherilyn enjoying the chicken. She prefers to eat the chicken with the bone and doesn't like me to debone it for her.

Today the gals had good old Ipoh food that koong koong bought from the market. After lunch, we went to Giant shopping as koong koong promised them that he would buy them Kit Kat....again. We wanted to go to Jaya Jusco but the traffic leading to the car park was total madness and we made a detour to Giant. At Giant, Sherilyn was a pro food taster. She took food and drink samples from all the food promoters at the supermarket. Lately, this brat has been a very poor eater when it comes to her proper meals and would take 2-3 hours to finish her lunch or dinner. But at Giant, her appetite suddenly took for the better and she wolfed down :
1) 3 cups of chocolate flavored corn flakes (dunno what that cereal was called but it looked a tad like Koko Crunch)
2) 2 cups of raspberry and strawberry flavored yoghurt drink
3) 2 cups of hot Milo
4) 1 cup of fried meehoon
5) 1 cup of Wong Lo Kat herbal drink
6) 2 cups of Cappucino
My dad, mum and I were laughing at her as she went from stall to stall to get the free samples. She even managed to use her charm to get 2 free gift watches from the woman who was promoting Kellogs corn flakes!

I was so fuming mad with Sherilyn just now. I had spent almost 40 minutes to upload a few pix into my blog and this brat turned off the switch to my laptop despite me yelling out to her not to. Consequently, I lost those pix that I had uploaded in my blog and a post that I had finished typing but didn't save. This is the second time she did that. The darn battery of my digital camera has now gone flat and I can't upload the pix into my laptop. My darn camera charger is left behind in KL. I now have to use my mum's digital camera to snap pix. But I have many pix in my camera which I want to upload in my blogs and I can't do it now. Oh yeah, I also left my darn handphone charger in KL thinking that I could use my dad's Nokia charger but darn it, his Nokia charger can't fit into my new handphone. Today my dad had to bring my handphone to his office and get his friend's help to charge my handphone. Haiz....
Sherilyn is terribly naughty and disobedient and she has even pissed my parents off with her disobedience. She is a hardcore cili padi.... she is bossy, fierce, vocal, speaks her own mind and not easily swayed by what people tell her, stubborn, bold, daring and is not afraid of anyone. When I reprimand her, she would say "keeeeeep quiiiiiettt" or "don't talk to me, I am drinking my milk" in a pissed off tone. Today when my mum chided her for being naughty, she said "I don't friend you. This is NOT your house, this is my house!" Sometimes she would scold my maid "shhhhhuut UP, don't talk to me". She is really driving everyone nuts. I hope she won't turn into a rebellious teenager and kek sei ngor.
