What have I been thinking lately in the month of May?

Hi folks,

With the radio, newspapers, advertisement and everywhere in all corners seems to be sending the message of Mother’s Day and ways of showing our appreciation to our mom, I have been thinking a lot more lately in every single task or experiences I faced and linking it with my parents (not only my mom).

One Wednesday night, my daughter suddenly express her love to me and said, “Mommy, I Love You (in Mandarin)” and my immediate action is to embrace her back and said “I Love you too”. I reckon later, perhaps the nursery teacher has taught them to express their love to their parents. No matter who or what initiates it, it sure feels good.

Now, I think back, when was the last time I hug my mom and said I love her too?

Even though my siblings and I would celebrate Mother’s Day with her every year, but to which extent my heart goes to my mom seems rather shallow.

Every single day at this month of appreciation, hearing songs of gratitude, I can’t helped but feel indebted to all the sacrifices that my parents have made to me especially at each action I did for the sake of my children.

The following little action reminded me of my parents’ sacrifices:

1. Even if there’s nothing to eat for the parents, they would make sure their child never go hungry.

Every morning, I would make sure I pack something for KY to bring to school and DH would always keep whatever snacks or special treats he have gotten from returning colleagues from overseas or gift from clients to give to his two (or maybe three, me included? Haha) darlings.

2. Every career move, family is the first priority.

For women especially, I find so many of my women friends who have let their career put on hold or reject better offer in exchange of more time for their family and kids. My parents are not excluded.

3. How many sleepless nights tending to the sick child.

Each time I had sleepless night taking care of my sick child; it reminded me how many sleepless nights my parents have sacrifice for me too.

There are many other little actions or things which reminded me of the sacrifices of all parents.

I hope I will never forget the sacrifices that my parents and in-laws have done for me & my family.

And that no matter for what reason, I should never be rude to them, always keeping in touch with them and spend more time hearing their talk or pouring of tales (this is definitely not always an easy task for me as I lacked of patience :P..but I will try my best on this J). How about you folks? What do you plan/pledge to do to commemorate this special day?

Please share with me in the comment box! :D

Cheers to all parents! Happy Mother's Day to All Mommies!

What Motherhood means to me?

hi folks,
After becoming a mom, all women experiences changes whether in their physical body, mental strength, perception about life as well as their ability to cope with motherhood.
Motherhood means a lot to me and changed a great deal in me. I noticed the following in me after becoming a mother which signifies what motherhood means to me:
  1. Family becomes my No. 1 priority in every decision I made.
  2. I realised the importance of role model we potray to our kids.
  3. I empathise and champion more of the courses for the younger generation.
  4. I started to appreciate the sacrifices my parents made for me.
  5. I am no longer alone and my kids are my greatest companion for a lifetime.
I think the significance of motherhood in my life has a long list..but the above are what I find straight from my heart.
What about you? What does motherhood means to you?
Now, in conjunction of Mother's day, has organised her first blog contest and the title of the blog entry for this contest is, "What Motherhood means to me?". Should you feel like sharing yours, do hop over to her blog and make your entry!
Cheers to motherhood!

Iphone for MYR700?

Hi folks,

My DH is a great Apple fan...and he got his first Iphone even before it hits Malaysia's shore...
Subsequently his office seems to turned into an Iphone gang with more than 70% got an Iphone and got his help to put in songs, games, etc. (Yea, even mine was setup by him of course!)
Now, last week, I just overheard that two of his colleagues brought their so-called Iphone bought for mere MYR700 asking him to helped them to load in some songs and games, but one glance my DH able to tell immediately it is an Iphone imitation....and then got to know from them that they actually got it from other dealers (not the authorised dealer in Malaysia comes comes with telco packages, i.e. Maxis dn Digi) for mere MYR700 and the dealers told them IT IS AN SMART PHONE and being so cheap 'cos they got it from our neighbouring country and it is compatible with the Iphone cables and gosh!!! Not sure if they are able to get back their they seems unable to contact the dealer anymore...
So guys, this morning when I saw this on TheStar Online..I like to share it with all of let us all be more alert on all these so-called good deals...
Excerpts from The StarOnline

Buy smartphones from trusted dealers

PETALING JAYA: Buyers have been urged to carry out research first before buying smartphones to avoid being cheated by unscrupulous dealers.

Fomca secretary-general Muha­m­­­mad Sha'ani Abdullah said there was a rise in the number of complaints by smartphones buyers who were cheated recently.

"We have received more than 200 complaints this year alone related to smartphone purchases," he said in a telephone interview yesterday.

He said unscrupulous traders would mislead customers into believing that certain mobile phone models had the same features as others, adding: "Many mobile phones look like smartphones these days. Those who are less tech-savvy might not be able to tell the difference."
