Merdeka Eve (Malaysia's National Day)

I just came back from my dinner with my hubby's colleagues. 13 of us were having our dinner at the Japanese Restaurant named KimsanIchi at Desa Sri Hartamas, KL.

The food there was very nice and the price was very reasonable too. Luckily I had made the booking 1 week before, because the restaurant was fully booked.

We ordered a lot of foods, but the bad thing was...I forgot to bring my camera there. At first, I was thinking of taking some photos there, and then I can upload the pictures into my blog. But because I seldom take pictures, so I wasn't used to bringing the camera along with me.

We ate until 9.30pm, when the waitress suddenly came and told us that the traffic police was issuing saman(compound) to the cars which were parked at the roadside. We rushed to our cars, luckily nobody got the saman.

When we were on our way back, we saw a lot of peoples celebrating and waiting for countdown for our Merdeka (National Day), especially pub. We took about 1 hour to reach home (usually 30 mins).

I am now also waiting for the countdown for our National Day, because I can also see the fireworks from my room.
I am going back to Penang tomorrow morning. I hope that I can wake up on time, because we are planning to start our journey at 6am.

Jo Jo, you are very funny! - Part 2

eiko-chan, don’t get angry, ok? You must feel very happy because your story got Part 2. Hehehe!

I went to eiko-chan’s house today. We were watching the Hong Kong series with her parents, and her brothers. Her father asked her mom to subscribe the Astro On Demand for a Hong Kong series whose Bobby Au Yong starring. When eiko-chan heard that, she straight away said: “Ya, I know I know, the series got Jacky chai and Ha Shuet one!” We all laughed at her again. Then I told her it was Ha Yu not Ha Shuet, don’t always simply change people’s name.

Hahaha, she really very funny!

Jo Jo, you are very funny!

I went to the night market (pasar malam) at SS2, Petaling Jaya yesterday with my cousin eiko-chan and her mom. Reached there about 5pm, we bought fruits, asam laksa, tofu bakar, pohpia and chan chu lai cha.

When we pass by a mini hawker's store selling lung sou tong (in Cantonese), eiko-chan asked me to wait for a while, and she wanted to buy the wu sou tong (in Cantonese). Then I said wu sou tong??? What is that? I never heard it before. Then she pointed at the store and I saw the Chinese word was written as lung sou tong. Hahaha, I laughed at her and told her it was lung sou tong, not wu sou tong. Don't simply change their name.

We left the night market about 5.40pm. In the car, eiko-chan told me about her trip to Hong Kong last 2 years. She said the food there was very nice except thong kao chi. I said: "Thong kao chi??? What is that???" Then she said the Hong Kong's series always bought one ler, the taste similar with shark fin, but is not shark fin ler. My aunty and I laughed at her again, I told her that food call wun chai chi, not thong kao chi!

Hahaha, her Cantonese was so funny!

My Little Boy, CARSON - Part 2

My Little Boy said he don't want to go to school anymore. Because he don't like to do homework. It was not the first time he said like that. And we will explain to him every kid also must go to school and study, and then they will become a smart thinking and knowledgeable person. And also we told him that so many kids out there want to study, but because of their parent's financial, they can't do so. Then My Little Boy asked me: "Study needs a lot of money?" I said yes. Then he kept quiet for a while. After a few minutes, he said to me: "Mommy, if I don't have to go to school, then I can help you to do all the house work and also you can save more money to buy milk powder or baby's thing for My Little Brother. Will it sounds nice?" He said it happily. When I heard he said that, I stunted. Then I said: "If you didn't go to school and study, you don't even know how to read and listen to the words which cartoon is writing or talking next time, do you want like that?" My Little Boy finally said: "No, I don't want to be like that. I want to understand all the words which cartoon is saying."

From this, I knew that we must use another method to talk to children.
