Holiday is what we need

Yes! Yes! Weekend is around the corner and I can’t wait for it to arrive soon. Why? Because Big J told me last night that we are going to Sematan for a night stay. Swimming, sun-bathing and having fun with Big J and Little J on the sandy beach is what I am looking forward to!

Amid all the excitement, I hope I will remember to take some shots of the beautiful beach once we are there. *wink* 1st Sept is a holiday. So, what you would be doing over the long holiday?

What's in news?

Mummy doesnt read Chinese, so Little J is learning to read Chinese at young age. Not only books, but Little J reads Chinese newspapers, on the current news, celebrities gossip, sports and politics. Next time, when she grows up, she can read newspapers to her mummy. *wink*

Oh boy, reading Chinese is tougher than English. You cannot see the ABC in Chinese, but many strokes here and there!

Little J came to me and saying “hos, horsh”. Hmm, I wonder what is she trying to say to me. Close??? Close what? She keeps saying “horsh” and I keep guessing what she wants. Then she ran to the corner of the room where the radio is.

At the background, I heard the cd playing children song. There was a horse neighing. Oh, now I know. She was trying to say “horse”. Sorry, Little J. Mummy cant register the word in first place.

Little J's going to be a 2 years and 4 months toddler

Little J is everyone’s princess at home. She can be cheeky and mischievous, but sometimes she can be shy like any other young girls when you compliment her. Other day, she will behave when you ask her to do so.

She has not gone to pre-school but we are enrolling her next year. Meaning we have to search and survey pre-schools around the city pretty soon. She may not be going to school yet, but luckily for us her baby sitter is great in teaching her. She is the only care, so Little J has the full attention of her time. Baby sitter teaching her to read and sing.

Some little update of Little J:

Speech – mixed of Chinese and English. When you ask her something in Chinese, she replies you in English and vice versa. Her famous English sentence is “what’s this (thing) doing here?”. There were times when she acted like adult, looking at me saying “what’s this doing here?” on pieces of loose papers on the computer table. Then she exclaimed “Oh my god!” and walk away. OMG! Does that mean the table is messy and mummy needs to clean up??

Recite ABC and 123 – she knows all the alphabets, capital and small letters. She still need some work out on her numbers, although she can remember some of them. Sometimes she can mistake number “5” for letter “S” and “6” for “G”. Cant blame her, as they look similar, right?

Singing – Little J has master the “2 tigers” (Chinese children song). But still cannot enter the children singing contest lah! *wink* Other songs that she loves and still learning to sing is “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” (only can sing the first 2 verses), “London Bridge is falling down” (she only sing the “falling down” part, then shout “My fat lady” instead of “My fair lady”) and ABC song (jumble up here and there along the way…).

Food – she is still not that adventurous when come to food. She likes fishes (like her mummy). I found out while taking care of her for the past few days that she like to take deep-fried fishes. We have to really deep-fried the fish (we used mackerel pieces) for her. And not only that! We need to peel off the side of fishes that crunchy especially the stomach part for her. If any white flesh, she will peel out the flesh herself!! A very choosy young eater. To trick her to eat her rice, we will put the crunchy fish piece on a spoonful of rice so she can see it. Then she will willing eat it and finish the bowl of rice. *faint*

Animal lover – She loves cats. But not so much for dogs. My mum has a cat at home and instead of greeting her grandpa and grandma first, she will look for the cat and call out “hi meow meow!” She not even scared of the cat, but the cat is scared of her because there was once when Little J step on her.

Bicycle – Little J still cant cycle her bicycle. Only know to step on the pedal and use her feet to move around.

Moody self – When ever she woke up from her sleep, she would be very moody. Sometimes crying for no particular reason, just want me to hug and carry her around.

Dry up – at last!! No more wetting. Little J is diaper-free most of the day. She only used diaper when we go out to somewhere far or takes longer hours and when go to bed. We are slowly putting her off diaper soon at night.

Colours – Her favourite colours would be the red, yellow and green. She is my traffic light instructor, telling me when to go and stop. Other colour she can associate is blue, black, pink and orange but not white!! Hmm, maybe white is too boring?

Baby sitter on leave

Little J’s baby sitter is on leave, going somewhere. It is school holiday now, so I believe she is going somewhere with her daughter. So I am stuck with Little J for the next 3 days. *wink* Yeap, I am taking leave to baby sit her myself. Luckily I have my sister-in-law as my companion or I will be really sticking to Little J the whole day. I need to go back to clinic again this morning to consult the doctor and continue with my medical check up. Sometimes I feel like Little J is gluing to my leg, following me around. Hardly have a breathing space. Sigh!

Do you believe that your little one know the day of the week? This morning, Little J said to me “Go to Aunty’s house.” She knows it is Monday today, as yesterday was Sunday and she didn’t go to her baby sitter’s house (unless I work on Sunday).

I was just telling Little J this morning if she is good girl and allow mummy to play computer (meaning online), I promise to play with her later. Now she is nagging behind my back ask me to play with her. Okay, got to leave now and entertain my little princess first. See you guys later.

Men and sex

You may think that men want sex all the time, right? You would be surprise that it is not always the case. Surprise, surprise!!!

That is a common misunderstanding and it is based on the mistaken belief that men are wired to want sex whenever they can get it.

Here are some interesting (but true) reason why men reject sex (taken from HealthToday):

Antidepressants are often the culprit when a man has a lowered interest in sexual activity.

Lack of sleep
The opportunity to have sex will often overwhelm the desire to sleep for younger men. This is also often true when a relationship is brand new. But as people age, sex lose its compelling attraction and sleep seem more tempting.

Hormonal levels
Testosterone level is relevant to how much sex he desires.

Quality over quantity
Some men will rather avoid sex altogether than to have sex that is not fulfilling to them.

Stress comes in many forms and may stem from financial difficulties, personal or family problem.

When you are in argument most of the time, men will avoid sex or just plain refuse their partner’s advance.

If your man does not want sex, the worst thing you could do is to criticize or belittle his manhood. Find out the cause of his lack of interest, when necessary, obtain professional help.

Our girl is growing up

Once a while we just love to look back at our family album, particularly Little J when she was a baby. The memories that come with all those photographs. The other day, while we were sorting out the old photographs of her, Big J was commenting to me that Little J is growing up very fast and hard to believe that she is already 2 years old plus. He feels guilty on not spending much time with her and sad as she is not close to him. Sigh!
But I admit Little J is growing up and she has her own personality. A hard-headed girl (like her mummy), cheeky (like her daddy) and adorable (she has a bit of our facial when we were babies, according to our parents). Luckily both parents (my parents and PIL) took a lot of baby photographs, so we have chance to compare ours with Little J's pictures. Sometimes she looks like Big J but other days, she looks so much like me.

Paint Attack!

Big J has gone to Santubong on one fine Sunday afternoon. Not for a swim at the beautiful Santubong or Damai beaches, mind you, but to play paintball. Initially I was envy of him for having so much fun and me staying with Little J at home, but after seeing him with all those paints on his shirts and pants, I had second thought. Believe me, it is painful being shot by the pellets.

Few paintball enthusiastic friends gathered together that day and divided into 2 groups. With paintball gun and loaded with colour pellets in their arms, they ran into the juggle and headed to the battlefield. Big J was complaining regardless of the fun, it was challenging and dangerous to crawl and walk into the jungle as some paths were rather slippery. Big J tripped on one occasion resulted on him having bruises all over his body.

After many rounds of pellets flying all over the places, the emerging champion was Big J’s team. His team won but Big J got his share of paints as he was attacked by 2 enemies at the final tie. His first time playing paintball, but Big J said he would love to play another game next time. It is not just an attack and defense game, according to him, but about team work and survival in the jungle. When he reached home that evening, he was too tired that he did not have energy to take bath and almost crawl to bed. Let’s say he is lethargic till he just wants to do or eat nothing. That night, he slept like a baby till the next morning without a stir.

Depressed women turns to their girlfriends

When you feel like having a shoulder to cry on, would you turn to your boyfriends or girlfriends? Studies reveal that depressed women that go to boyfriends for comfort will end up even more depressed. Why? Generally men will shunned from comforting their girlfriends as they do not really know how to deal with such situation and give advices to their depressed girlfriends.

Depression is common among women than men. It is generally defined as two or more weeks of symptoms that can include feelings of hopelessness, anxiety, insomnia or oversleeping and eating disorder.

Young women struggling with depression often seek emotional support from their boyfriend. However they are not doing themselves any favours. Boyfriends tend to detach themselves from depressed girlfriends while female friends move in closer to provide a shoulder to cry on. The more depressed a girl becomes, the less supportive her boyfriend is and the more supportive her girlfriend is.

Girlfriends will not hesitate to knock at your doors and comfort you when you are in distress. The research also shown that levels of support went up among close female friends and dropped among boyfriends during times of depression. The support from girlfriends is soothing as they are more comfortable about being empathetic and listening, Many girlfriends like being caretakers and caregivers. With boys when a fiend of theirs is down, they may retreat more from the relationship

So, turn to your girlfriends if you want to feel better. Girlfriends are for keeping.

Gardening after 2 weeks

After 2 weeks, no sign of tomatoes in our garden. I guess the tomato planting project failed for both Big J and Little J. Never mind, the most important thing is that Little J has fun and daddy and daughter spending some good time together.

My Saturday

Here I am on a Saturday afternoon. Hardly 30 minutes of my beauty sleep, I was rudely awaken by Big J when he just back from his office. Yeah, he is working 5 days a week, but still very committed and go back to his office on Saturdays.

It is also a working Saturday for me, and I just go myself a hair cut. Yes! Totally trimming off my long locks, my head feels very light. Just a bit not get used to it for the time being.

Since I cant sleep (you know I am a light sleeper), I thought I go blog hopping and visit some of my friend’s blogs. Missing you all.

It rains pretty heavy now. We did not have rain for almost a week here so it feels heaven to have such rain on a Saturday afternoon. It has been like oven when we stepped out of our air-conditioned bedroom. The temperature is soaring here. Hopefully the rain will cool down the temperature a bit.

We are going to have a relaxing Saturday evening later. Planning to bring MIL for a shopping and dinner later. She is going back tomorrow morning, so we are trying to spend as much time with her. Last night, me and Little J follow her and my sis-in-law visiting around. We stopped at an aunty’s house, checking on her as she just undergo an operation. Glad that she is alright. Then, we make a stop at a cousin’s apartment, wanting to see her 1 year old plus daughter. Boy! Kids really grow up fast. The cousin’s daughter can walk and she is even more cheeky than my Little J. But both made up an adorable pair. Unfortunately I didn’t bring any camera to take shot of both girls. Next time!!!
