Project 365

Day 122

May 2nd (Saturday): The boys discovered a fun way to spend their shower – together. And of course having fun with the comb.

Day 121

May 1st (Friday): Traveling day for me and my boys. Even though they have been on the planes for many times, they were still excited about getting on board and seeing their father. I was worried for Swine flu. Upon arriving HKIA, everything seems to be under control with more health personnel requesting us to fill in a declaration form. We straight went up to Shenzhen by Taxi.

Day 120

April 30th (Thursday): Little Mer caught red-handed in using my paper trimmer. I took the last chance at home to do a page – Similar.

Day 119

April 29th (Wednesday): Mom brought back two puppies from sis’ neighbor. Of course the boys were super excited about it and wanted so much to feed them, touch them and play with them.

Day 118

April 28th (Tuesday): Been busy running around town to get things done and has been a busy day at work that I wish I could take a leave.

Day 117

April 27th (Monday): Took leave today after knowing that I can’t get back to the office in time after going to the bank for buying ASN. Went back there to meet up with Andrew the sales person from SUDC to get a unit from the property. I still wonder if this is the right move.

Day 116
[No picture]

April 26th (Sunday): Went over to Rebecca’s home after church. One dreadful thing happened, Cal threw a toy over at Royden and got his upper lip cut. Straight used honey and then went to SMC, but the doctor doesn’t seems to help much and he even commented that it take time to heal as the lips are always wet, ridiculous for me. It turns out that sis brought Royden to Dr. Huang and confirm that it will heal by itself and nothing to worry about. Thank God.

Day 115

April 25th (Saturday): Went straight to see South China Sea Place in Asia City show room with the boys and big sis. The boys were excited to see the show unit. We went in big sis’ car at first but found out that it was too hot for the boys to sit behind in the two doors sport car, thus went home to change to my own car instead.

Day 114

April 24th (Friday): The day we went home. We managed to get around town to visit two temples with our Vietnamese friends: Fang and Linh. On their bikes! Excited just to be on the trip.

Day 113

April 23rd (Thursday): Went to Ha Long Bay, Vietnam World Heritage Site which is filled with islands and caves. We could only managed to get into one of the cave. Had lunch on the boat and went visited some handicraft store which me and ML didn’t buy anything.

Day 112

April 22nd (Wednesday): Another day filled with exhausting conference paper. We were more excited to see the food instead. And today is the last day of the conference which we were being treated with yet another good dinner filled with local food and western delicacy. But we still went out afterwards to get our Vietnamese noodle -Pho.

Day 111

April 21st (Tuesday): Been to a day of conference at the 14th CONSAL. Amazingly and surprisingly I found myself be surrounded by librarians all over the Southeast Asia! We went to the Opera House for the Gala night and worn our dresses that we bought the day before in Hanoi silk shop. Enjoyed the night of local performances and amazed by how talented and hardworking they all have been.

Day 110

April 20th (Monday): Another fun filled day but this time feeling exhausted from walking. We’ve been to the public library of Hanoi. They are still using the old system of borrowing. Feel so lucky of what we have at home. ML got stomach ache that evening, so we had our dinner nearby the hotel.

Day 109

April 19th (Sunday): Walk around the streets of Hanoi with ML with these hotel sandals. Such a fun free walk with ML. Discovered such many things about Hanoi and its people. It reminds me of China.

17th April (Friday): Actually busy on packing and yet I am working at night shift. Not a wise arrangement.

Day 106
16th April (Thursday): Have to have dinner in Wan Siew’s home ‘cos her sis – Annie is back. Sort of a re-union for us all who went to the Australia trip together years ago when we stayed over in Annie’s place in Melbourne. The boys had a great time there with WS’s nephew.
Day 105

15th April (Wednesday): Can’t really remember what had happened.

Day 104

14th April (Tuesday): The DELL laptop that KF order has finally arrived after much delay. Excited to open it and at the same time thinking if I can really keep it. Like the white cover but dissappointed that it is not while inside.

Day 103

13th April (Monday): Mer actually wasn’t feeling well when he was on the ride. He was having fever but not until I got home that I realise and confirm that he was really having a fever. So he has been a bit grumpy and quiet that night.

Project 365

I’ve just realize that my Day number and Date are not tally, so I’ve made some changes to make them right. Here goes for the recent ones:

Day 102

12th April (Sunday): Easter Sunday. Went to church. Cal has been extra goody today sitting with Aunt Rebecca while Mer never stop disturbing me. We went for breakfast then had some photo time. After that spend some time in Rebecca’s home before heading home and met them again in the evening. Love this photo as it shows how goofy and cheeky they are.

Day 101

11th April (Saturday): The boys will take any chance to go to the farm, have an outing by themselves whenever they see that their grandma is in the field. Here they had to quickly come back in the house as it was drizzling. I love this photo as it reminds me of Dipak (eldest brother).

Day 100

10th April (Friday): Good Friday holiday. Big sis managed to bring the boys to the farm and then to the river. They had a great time there. Like usual, they wanted to stay there till dawn if possible.

Day 97-99
[no photo]
7th April (Tuesday) – 9th April (Thursday): It has been those hectic days trying to catch up with work and also trying to get the boy back to their normal routine. Getting them into bed is one big challenge every night. They’ll try to drag on, talk, play or ask for food.

Day 96

6th April (Monday): Late for work. Anyway, I managed to catch the boys with granny watching TV. Normally from 7-8pm, that is their cartoon hour while we have our dinner. Any change of channel will trigger their anger.

Day 95

5th April (Sunday): Before we headed off to the airport, the boys took those last hours going through those toys again while their cousins were away to cemetery. They had some great fun in the air-port too. Going through a maze to get their stamps and finally got a magnet sticker each. But on the way to the plane, Mer lost it somewhere when he fall asleep. Fortunately they were quite ok on the plane. Save journey home! Once arrived home, didn’t manage to sleep till late at night for unpacking and preparing for the next day to work and school.

Day 94

4th April (Saturday): When down to Hong Kong after our late breakfast. The boys had been waiting for this day to get to HK. One thing for sure is they love those toys in aunt’s place, what more with their cousins to play with.

Day 93

3rd April (Friday): A day out with the boys to WalMart through the park, but we missed the junction and had to turn back. Thank God we manage to find it later after asking a passerby. Love taking their pictures in the open space.

Project 365

Day 92

2nd April: Went to have Mongolian dinner, my first try. Love the BBQ and roast lamb plus the lamb shank soup! But the boys didn’t eat a thing except some soup for Cal.

Project 365

Day 91

1st April: April fool day but thank God I didn’t get fool at all. We went to a badminton game with hubby’s colleagues and I got to play too! It was fun! The boys also loves it thought they never get the chance to really playing it on the court. They were still with the bat after they got home.

Day 90

March 31st: Been a few days now and the boys still play with each other, teasing and chasing after each other, though there are still times that they fight or refuse to sleep with each other over afternoon nap.

Project 365

Goodness, I’ve been way behind my project 365 posting. I’m suppose to post up the article once everyday, or at least once a week, but look what I’ve now, stopped from day 65 (March 8th) till 88 (yesterday)!! Let me just rewind back my memory.
I’m actually thinking if I should move all these postings about project 365 to another blog…

March 30th (Monday): 2nd day here over in Shenzhen. Not really a good night for all of us. Trying to write off this from my memory.

Day 88

March 29th (Sunday): The boys always wanted to push the lift buttons. Here they were being so loving together while waiting for the lift.

Day 87

March 28th (Saturday): On the bus in Shenzhen airport after landing. Pretty tiring flight with these boys, they were ever so active and noisy. Went out for dinner that night as a family. I wasn’t pretty excited about the trip. Maybe would feel different if I were alone. But then what is a family trip without the boys?

Day 86

March 27th (Friday): Last day at school before going to China. Mer took the time to do some drawing before getting on the car to school.

March 23rd (Monday)

Day 81

March 22nd (Sunday): Went to bed late after doing some a scrapbook page. Feel a bit left out if I didn’t create for the day. It is actually my escape, how I whine down, how I just sit and really be with myself, how I think back on the day or those incidence that had happened, how I wanted to preserve my memories. I just love to be able to create.

Day 78-80

March 19th-21st (Thursday – Saturday): Kudat and Banggi trip. Went to Kudat to have our MBJ meeting, stayed in Marina resort and went to Banggi the next day by Ferry. Got a chance to experience the local karaoke session and the enjoyed the sea breeze. Hot and humid place. Saw the water snake going and coming back from the sea. Were in the same car with JK and Wong. Another good chance to get to know my colleagues.

Day 77

March 18th (Wednesday): Back to KK on the 2pm’s flight from KLIA. Got ourselves a treat from MAS airline as we were being served Haagen-Dazs and Ferrero Rocher free! We were in a bigger plane too.

Day 68

March 9th (Monday): It is a holiday today, I managed to have some time over in Sutera using the gym while the boys had a go with painting pottery in the Kiddies Club.
