Mommy and son talk

While putting on my blue polka dot swimsuit top, bb came over to touch my tummy.
BB: “Uuu…nice mommy”
Mommy: “You like mommy to dress like this?”
BB: “Ya”

When I put on the swimsuit bottom; guess what did the cheeky boy do?
He came over to touch my “you know where”. *Pengsan*

Another day…

I was ready to go out to meet a friend. Put on a sleeveless top and my favourite quarter pants. Feel a little too sexy and chilly, grab a cardigan and before I could wear it…”mommy, don’t wear that one, not nice”. Err…hello, since when I have another fussy men in this house whole bordering about my dressing? *Grrrr…*

This morning…

BB: Mommy don’t go to work.
Mommy: Why?
BB: Bb cannot see mommy…don’t work, stay home.
*I wish so too, Mommy is working on it bb? Give me some time okay?* Oh..poor boy!

Hum Jin Peng - Popular Chinese Snack

OooOoo hoT hOT HOT…“Hum Jin Peng” ...

Do you know where this is? I have been eating “Hum Jin Peng” since young and have never tasted the one that is as nice as this stall. It was a small stall in front of a Chow Yang
hawker centre, near a nasi Kandar restaurant. It always filled with people from all lifestyles waiting to savour this super yummylicious Chinese snack.

Owner looks middle age, wore a silver tiny earring on his left ear. He has his son and wife as helper. The son will write down our orders in a book to keep track of the amount. “6 sweet, 4 rice one”, daddy placed his order. These snacks are so popular that the moment he scoped it up from the wok, it will be distribute to fulfilled orders. I personally love the one with sweet red bean. Bb gobbled up one and a half piece as supper too. Daddy can’t wait to eat em, he urged me to feed him while he was driving.

I think he only operates at night and only on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. We went there around 9:30pm.

Bb looked on to the sifu making dough on the spot for frying.

My Donor Card

It was my first time donating blood in Sin Chew’s hall back in 1999. Due to my weight, I was only allowed to donate half a pack or the smaller cc pack. I wasn’t afraid at all because my friend was with me. He was the one who encouraged me to try. Besides, a very enthusiastic uncle was there sharing his story of how good it is to do this and how he has agreed to donate all his organs when he die too. Ooo…the thought of giving away all organs and tissues was frightening at first. However, the idea lingers in my subconscious mind for sometime until recently I found out the exact place to be a registered donor.

After reading some valuable information like religious viewpoints, faq, and details about how they will take my organ after I die and not hindering the funeral process and so on, I decided to sign myself up.

1. Are there any religious objections to organ donation?
2. Will organ donation affect funeral preparations?
3. Am I too young or old to be a donor?
4. What is the actual process of removal?
5. Tell me more about organ donation and brain death.
6. How can I become a donor?

It was a very speedy service as well. Within a week, I received my donor card. It is advised that donor carry the card with them at all time and inform their family of their wish before death. Otherwise, family members will be in a very difficult situation to decide whether to give or not.

This poem by American poet, Robert N. Test has inspired organ donors all over the world.

To Remember Me - I Will Live Forever
Robert N Test

The day will come when my body will lie upon a white sheet neatly

tucked under four corners of a mattress located in a hospital; busily
occupied with the living and the dying. At a certain moment a doctor
will determine that my brain has ceased to function and that, for all
intents and purposes, my life has stopped.

When that happens, do not attempt to instill artificial life into my body
by the use of a machine. And don't call this my deathbed. Let it be
called the bed of life, and let my body be taken from it to help others
lead fuller lives.

Give my sight to the man who has never seen a sunrise, a baby's face
or love in the eyes of a woman.

Give my heart to a person whose own heart has caused nothing
but endless days of pain.

Give my blood to the teenager who was pulled from the wreckage of
his car, so that he might live to see his grandchildren play.

Give my kidneys to the one who depends on a machine to exist from week to week.

Take my bones, every muscle, every fiber and nerve in my body and
find a way to make a crippled child walk.

Explore every corner of my brain.

Take my cells, if necessary, and let them grow so that, someday a speechless
boy will shout at the crack of a bat and a deaf girl will hear the sound of rain
against her window.

Burn what is left of me and scatter the ashes to the winds to help the flowers grow.
If you must bury something, let it be my faults, my weakness and all prejudice

against my fellow man.

Give my sins to the devil.

Give my soul to God.

If, by chance, you wish to remember me, do it with a kind deed or word
to someone who needs you. If you do all I have asked, I will live forever.

Hello Everybody!

HELLO EVERYBODY!!! This is what Bb greets his daddy and me when we arrive home. To be precise when he sees me, he greets HELLO MOMMY, with his daddy he says HELLO PA PA. A warm welcome home completes our day perfectly. That is one good side of him, always cheerful to see us.

However, I recently experienced very intense scolding with alien words from him during one play session at home. I was speechless. What can I say? I wasn’t there with him 24/7 to nurture and correct him. Sometimes I really am not sure and don’t know how to teach him. Treat him as a friend advising him not to do that sort of scolding before sleeps is the only choice left. Therefore, I take advantage of the quiet nighttime to talk to him and drill good manners in his head before he sleeps. Not sure if he fully understands, I get pretty positive feedback from him like nodding, yea-s and oh-s.

During the weekend, we took bb to a neighbourhood express haircut saloon. There is a prepaid machine, we deposited RM12 before getting an express cut; my gut feeling told me that bb is gonna give me trouble. True enough, when his turn come, he sat quietly letting the girl messed with his hair but it only last for a few minutes before started pulling off the plastic cover around his neck and helped himself jumping down from the high chair. To be frank, it was the first time we took him for a haircut. We had to forgo the cut, as it was impossible to keep him sitting still. Perhaps I need to ask mil for her strategy. My treat of McD ice cream doesn’t work. *Clueless mommy*

We took him to Tien Hou temple for an exhibition of Kuan yin's sculpture sometime ago. Check out the way he posed? :)

看着身边的人一个比一个的有成就,我有点沮丧。沮丧自己一无所有,没有“名” ,没有“利“。后再想深一层,有名有利会一定开心吗?虽然我没名没利,庆幸还有BB 和嗲地的陪伴。

“人” 是非常复杂的动物,真不容易做。你有同感吗?
我真的要好好磨炼一下 ”心不随境转“ 的功夫呀!

My first attempt writing Chinese. Sorry ler, no translation available. Have a good day. I will be back soon.
