Hello February

February is here. My birthday, my mum's birthday and my eldest son Raul too! Too busy to even think of what to share here. Let me share the good news. We have finally moved in to the new house for about a week now. YES!!! Power supply is now installed. Curtains are done! Packing and unpacking things are tedious, tiring and boring tasks but we have done most of it. It's really great to have our own space now. Bigger and comfortable. Oh not forgetting our very own dog (courtesy of my best buddy Audrey Wiles and family) which my son named BINGO after listening to the song with the same title. Bad news: I don't have time to upload any pics yet and one of the shower's hose was dismantled. Plus other minor plumbing problems!! Lousy work done by the contractor. *SIGH*

Now i have a new task to handle. Will be going to other school to help coach a teacher there on ways to improve the performance of his/her students and more paper work. I must plan my time and work carefully now. Wish me luck!!

I am so FRUSTRATED with Sabah Electricity Sabah Berhad (SESB) and POS Malaysia for being so slowwwwww in giving their services to us...Their customers!!! My house is still DARK after so many months waiting for the SESB people to do their jobs!! After countless phone calls and meetings with the staffs, until NOW we still haven't received any good news.

POS Malaysia is doing a very lousy job of delivering my parcels. The worst is the latest one which has been stranded in Kota Kinabalu since 5th January 2011 untill today! Can you believe it? It takes a week or more for the parcel to arrive from KK to Papar when in actual reality, one can drive down to Papar from KK in just 40 mins! CRAZY! I've been calling and calling but they still haven't done anything yet. PATHETIC!


Tadaaa!!! Finally! I've managed to make some changes that i like to my blog. Just need a bit more patience and attention to all those instructions on how to...This is great. So, what's new this year for me? Aaah! My daughter Lisa, is now in kindergarten. Luckily no problem for her on the first day up till now. Maybe I worry unnecessarily. I must start trusting my kids. So this is her in kinder's uniform on her first day.

Hope she continues to enjoy her kindergarten years..

BTW, We could not believe the amount that we have to pay for our kids' education now. We forked out almost RM900 for Raul and Lisa's fees, uniforms and a year's meals!! I believe that now we, the parents, are broke for the month!! What a great way to start the year!!

Not Blog savvy enough!!

Don't ask why my template design is like this....I'm still confused on how to go about designing the template. Somebody pls help!! I haven't even updated the wall photo!! Soon. I promise.

Home is where the heart is....

Wowwww!!! I've been away for almost a year now. That's a record. Well, not to say that i'll be blogging every single day from now on, but I think i'll stop by and update every time i have some free time. So what's been going on with my life the past year that i have been away from this blog? Too many to recapture and retell in this blog for sure. Let's just say, after the birth of Isabel, i was kept busy with work, part-time money thingy, kids, families and specially my home sweet home. My dwelling place. Which until now is not yet 100% completed!!!... So, here it is. My heaven. The place i can call my own.

Clockwise from Top left is the entrance door to our home. Just a simple one. Then our living room. Next is the bay window with a seat cum cabinet. Another shot of that living room. After that our kitchen. And kitchen.

Down Clockwise: simple kitchen cabinet. Another shot of that dining table. Next is our kitchen doors. One leading to the laundry area and the double glass door (supposed to be like that French window) is taking us to our back porch. Last is our kitchen door from outside.

And now introducing our home in its full view. Minus the fences around the porch and steps.

The rooms: There are five including one study room and a guest room.
Down clockwise: Masterbedroom, study room, the corridor to the kids' room, boys' room, girls' room and i forgot to snap the guest room. HAIYAAA!!!

The chocolate milk diet!

I read in that chocolate milk is one of the most powerful weight-loss tools in the nutritional universe. Yes. This news is great. This is a fun way to lose weight! 'Each bottle delivers a package of micro- and macronutrients that can help you shake off body flab and replace it with firm muscle'.

The article says that you need to drink one glass in the morning once you wake up, before you workout and right after your training session. The many benefits of this drink are
a. that calcium in the milk can actually impede your body’s ability to absorb fat
b. it is fortified with vitamin D which helps to move the calcium from food to the body
c. you perform better and greater in your workout session as it gives you more energy and keeps you hydrated (even more than water).
d. you get protein which helps you to build muscle and helps you to burn more fat.

So, start drinking chocolate milk today. I'm one step ahead in weight-loss programme. I only need to motivate myself to start exercising which I have abandoned for a looooonggg time now. Hmm... And that's the most difficult thing to do. HELP!!!

Oh dear. It's been a while since I last visited my own blog. What more other blogs. How time flies. So, what's new? Well, after a very exhausting nine months, I've finally met my baby girl. No words can describe how happy I am that it's over and to welcome a new addition to the family is priceless. Though we'd never planned for the fourth baby to arrive so soon, nevertheless, we're just glad to have her. Now I'm very contented with my two boys and girls. So, this is Isabel. We were quite surprised when we first laid eyes on her that she looks exactly like Lisa.

I might not be blessed with money but for sure God has given us plenty to be thankful for; love, kids and enough money to survive. :-)

Apart from that, our home is in progress. The workers started their work on March and most probably it will be completed in a month or two. Well, of course we couldn't hope for a bungalow, but a small cottage house is more than enough for our growing family.

This is Raul and Lisa posing with the house-to-be.

Not forgetting Ezra who is always excited whenever we go to the site.

Discussing the house plan?


Those are the real construction workers.

Well, those are not the latest pics of the house but I am too lazy to upload more pics at the moment. Will update on this soon. I'm still 'enjoying' my confinement haha...C U Soon!
