My Active Boy

Carson is a very active boy. He can’t sit still for about 20 minutes. Even when he is doing his homework, he won’t sit still also. He will write 3 or 4 words, then he run here and there, then only he will sit down and continue it. In the classroom, it was the same. Some of his teacher will asked him to sit still or warn him. He’s very scared of teacher scolding, so he will listen to the teacher. But some of the teacher who is very soft type one, he will repeat to run around the classroom. I am very worried about him. He will be going to primary school next year. I really hope that he won’t be like that anymore.

My Little Boy, CARSON

My little boy is very lazy to go to school. Every morning, very difficult to wake him up to go to school. But when you said: "Aiya, if you are so tired today, then no need to go to school lar!" Then he will wake up and straight away said: "Cannot, teacher will scold me one, must go to school." hehehe...my son is like that.

My pregnancy

2 of my pregnancy also very good. I am very lucky. Because I didn't have any morning sickness or changed appetite. Everything just the same except my weight...hehehe!

For my first pregnancy, I put on weight a lot...about 8 kg. But for my second one, until now I just put on about 3 kg only. I was so surprised. I asked the doctor why like that? Is there anything wrong? The doctor said is ok, as long as the baby is growing and looks healthy.

Hahaha...is good for me also lar! Because I don't have to on diet so hard on my confinement month.

Disgusting thing happened today!

I sent my hubby to work everyday. Today, as usual I sent my hubby to work. Actually we came out late, luckily we can managed to reach his office on time. I dropped him at the roadside in front of his office. His office is on the 1st floor of the building. My hubby quickly walked across the road to his office. Usually when I reached his office, I will automatically look up to his office pantry’s window (the pantry is facing the main road) whether is it open. Because if the pantry’s window is open, that means the office door is open already. I am as usual just look up to his office pantry’s window. I saw his Chinese male colleague is kissing his Malay female colleague in front of the window. I was so shock, then I thought I was wrong, because early in the morning, may be my eyes a little bit blur. But they did it again to make me confirmed that what I have seen was true. Oh my god, how can they do such ‘disgusting’ thing in the office? What are they thinking? For me, this thing is very serious already; I don’t want to simply say any bad thing of people, so I called my hubby’s mobile phone to ask him what colour shirt is the Chinese guy wearing today? When my hubby told me the answer, then I straight away tell him why I am asking this. My hubby was so shocked too. Because he said his colleague saw this thing before but they just don’t want to believe it and thought may be they see wrongly.

Actually, for me, I am not racist type of person. What I cannot stand is the Chinese guy is getting married this Oct 2007 with his girl friend that stayed together with him almost 4 years already. And for the Malay girl, she will be also getting married with her boy friend end of Aug 2007. How can they do that?

Everyone in the office also knew what is going on. They just don’t bother to say anything only. Because 2 of them always said they are just good friend only, nothing more. But they used to eat lunch just 2 of them only. Is really not fare to their boy friend and girl friend, right? If they are really love each other so much, then they can just broke up with their boy friend and girl friend, then starts dating lar, right? Another thing is…the Malay girl told her new Malay colleague said that she and the guy are like that one, don’t have to ask or say anything more. Because got 1 Malay lady colleague scolded her before, said that she tak malu kah(don’t feel embarrass)? She just kept quiet only.

Actually I don’t like this Malay girl. Because before she gets along with this Chinese guy, she was with another Chinese married man whose also work in the same office. They were together for about 3 years. The Chinese married man loves her so much, until he didn’t even bother to care about his wife and his 4 years old daughter. But luckily he left the office later because of this Chinese guy ‘join in’. The Chinese married guy was going back to his wife and daughter now and they are planning to have another baby soon.

Boiling Eggs

Most of my family members love to eat eggs, especially half boiled eggs. Yesterday, me and whoisbaby was discussing how to prevent the egg's shell from cracking when boiling. Finally I found out how to prevent the egg's shell from cracking from the The Egg Cookbook.

Boiling Eggs:

  1. Prevent shells from cracking. Allow refrigerated eggs to thaw before putting them in boiling water. Adding eggs to cold water then bringing to a boil together also helps to prevent the shells from cracking.
  2. Seal cracks in shells. Add a little vinegar or salt to the water. This helps the whites to set faster, which effectively seals the cracks, if any, and prevent more whites from seeping out.
  3. Centre yolks. When boiling eggs, keep stirring the water to keep the eggs moving. Stirring positions the yolk in the centre, which is aesthetically more pleasing than lopsided egg yolks.
  4. Tender soft-boiled eggs with runny yolks. Put the eggs into cold water then bring to a boil over moderate heat. Turn off the heat, leave the eggs to steep for 5 minutes then rinse quickly with cold water.
  5. Easy shelling. Wait for hard-boiled eggs to cool completely before shelling them. Cracking the shells and then soaking the eggs in tap water helps to loosen the shells, making them easier to shell.

I like to collect recipe books...but I seldom cook...hehehe! Whenever I go to the bookstore, I will automatically walk to the recipe books section. I really don't know why? May be because I really enjoy eating. If I am alone while eating, I will eat very slowly(spoon by spoon) because I wanted to taste the food nicely.

Today is Sunday, I looked over all my recipe books to find a recipe for some delicious soup which I can cook(simple and easy) and I found it inside this recipe book named Soup of the day, they have a soup called Seafood in Miso Soup which I think will be very delicious.
