I wonder if you are busy choosing or thinking what Christmas gift to get for your loved ones like I do?
First in my list is pressie for my children ;)
And top on my list for my kids are decent and comfortable shoes!
DH & I have been shoes-hunting as much and as many outlets as we can remember. Almost every shopping malls we went, we would check out the shoes section!
Our kids have "fleshy" foot, for KY, for e.g. those princess-like shoes looks real pretty but they are not comfy enough for KY. Each time was like fitting and scouting for Cinderella :P and KY did not fit into those princess glass shoes!!
Same goes for Shone. His first shoe size when he reaches one year old was size 5! A toddler size. I only found a suitable shoes after visiting 3-5 shops. And guess what that shoes only lasted less than 4 months and it can fit his feet anymore!
And now, Christmas is here...so All I want for Christmas (for my kids) would probably be a comfy and practical shoes to wear so that they can accompany mommy for more adventure outdoor(including shopping :D haha)
And, what's more with the crowd at the shopping malls, shopping online is so much more comfy and manageable. And as I browse around, I found this particular site that has range of Baby Shoes that fits the bill. It has such great varieties of design and some of them looks exactly like what I have worn when I was a kid.
I simply love such shoes because it is very durable and very practical to wear to many different functions. Actually, choosing the right shoes is very important not only to adults but to children too.
Below is a video that illustrate the measure a right fitting shoes.
Wow...Santa is answering to my wishes! Now folks, Have a lovely Christmas time with your family and friends...I am off shoes-hunting and pressie-hunting now...

This is the time of the year again...reflection time and also projection time :) haha...
It's been a habit of mine to check out the reading for the coming year whether is my Star sign or animal sign.
It's more for fun and reference. (I take note of the warning and beamed at the blessings :D)
So, here's my Gemini reading for year 2011 taken from TheStar Horoscope:
Year 2011 Outlook for Gemini
Gemini expects to have a smoother year in 2011. For Gemini born before the 10th of June your efforts will be eventually appreciated and you will get promoted. Overall Gemini will encounter less stress in 2011 than in the previous years. Remain confident and industrious.
You expect to see your efforts pay off in 2011. However Gemini should remember to keep a balanced attitude. Do not get too proud.
Everything expects to be in favour of Gemini on career development in 2011. Keep your eyes open for new opportunities and deal with difficulties with a calm attitude. Do not get too impatient. Learn to pay attention to what you do and avoid doing anything that might bring you trouble later.
Relationship and marriage
Gemini might feel at loss after a relationship. Remember that relationship is mutual. Do not get too impatient and anxious. Keep cool-headed.
Money management and investment
Gemini should learn to take one step at a time. You expect too much at the beginning by making risky decisions. Do not become too changeable and do not follow the trend. Learn to think and act cautiously. Improve yourself and try to make friends with similar interests. Gather your fortune with an honourable manner.
One can not make good achievements by changing his goals continuously.
Ok this is an important one....time to set my goals(recycle the ones yet to achieve this year as well! :P ) now and stick with it throughout the year! Wait till I cross check my 2010 goals :D

Today is the annual Winter Solstice (Dong Zhi) festival
celebrated by Chinese. For many families, Winter Solstice (Dong Zhi) is
even bigger than the Chinese New Year.To Chinese, it is traditionally
celebrated at the beginning of winter to remind of another year gone by, and
for one to look forward to the new year. We are considered older one year
after each Dong Zhi.
Typically, on this day, we will make Tang Yuan (glutinous rice ball). My mom
will make the the sweet syrup either from rock sugar or brown sugar and add
pandan leaves and ginger.
Nowadays, Tang Yuan can be bought in supermarkets. They are available in all
sorts of fillings, e.g. in black sesame paste, red bean paste, groundnut
paste, etc. Some stalls would also sell ready-made Tang Yuan dough where you
can just purchase and roll into ball shape for those who still like to
experience the making of Tang Yuan ball without spending time to make the
So, how did you spend your Dong Zhi? Did you make your own Tang Yuan or buy
No matter how we celebrated, I hope 2011 will be a better year for everyone,
a self-awakening year and a proactive year whereby everyone believes in the
power and the role we can play to make this earth a better place to stay!
Every single steps and thoughts we generate affects this tiny earth we all
call our "Home".

I am truly glad to find that the theatre development in Malaysia (in particularly in Kuala Lumpur) is getting more and more vibrant!
Recently came across another performance called Octopus at The Star Online here.
Venue: Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre
Date: Now until Dec 22, 2010
Content: It starts off with Kevin and Blake, a young and good-looking couple, invite the older and more experienced Max and Andy to their place for a night of fun.
Despite their reservations, nervousness eventually gives way to excitement, and after some initial awkwardness, the two pairs click. Before they know it, some clothes come off (to the delight of many of the women and gay men in the audience) and a night of pleasure ensues.
For more details of the story, check out the write up at The Star Online here.
Starring: Malik Taufiq (left) and Will Quah
'Octopus' is on at Pentas 2, KLPac (Jalan Strachan, Off Jalan Ipoh, Sentul Park), until Wednesday.
Showtime is 8.30 nightly and tickets are RM38 and RM25 (students). Call 03-4047 9000 or visit klpac.org.
Cheers to the theatre and art performance in Malaysia!
