of blogging and stuff

I have not been writing as much as I used to.  I have been lazy. Period.  Still, I hope to pick up as I do like scribbling down my thoughts! As a child, I wondered why my Dad wrote in a journal daily, often just a few sentences about the weather,  visits, etc. I understand now. We write to remember.

Those few sentences I wrote years ago help me to remember things for instance when Ian learned to ride his bicycle for the first time or  how he first communicated with friends and the like. If not journalized (now it’s blogged!), I wouldn’t have remembered what exactly transpired just before Valentine’s Day  two years ago:

“As soon as we reached home, he got off the care very quickly. Seconds later, he rushed back to me,  no pants on. He pulled my hands while saying, “Mommy, come! Help me turn on the lights. I want to go to the toilet.  I want to pass urine”.  During the ride home, he whined, he rushed me, etc. Only then I realized what the whining was all about!  It was rather amusing…gave him a BIG hug! . Our little prince is not little anymore, he’s about to ditch his diapers…. “

I have composed many posts in my head over the weeks and not taken the time to blog them.

Have a wonderful week ahead!


of thoughts and opportunities

Yesterday, I spent my long hours of lunch time doing something slightly different than the usual. I decided to do some window shopping instead of heading home to see my little one.

See… my little one can already identify who’s who in the family and somehow or rather gets pretty cranky every time I’m out of sight.

Anyway, back to yesterday’s lunch time story.  So, after an hour and a half hopping from one outlet to another, I exited the last shop with a bag – yup, a skirt and a blouse! Satisfied? Pretty much.  I barely have time to shop for my own stuff these day. Anyway, I guess I was too engrossed trying to pick the best items, that never did I realized it was raining cats and dogs outside!  After fifteen minutes of wait and not seeing any improvement on the weather, I decided to hop over to Old Town White Coffee.  

Old Town White Coffee. I like this  kopi tiam style coffee shop.  I haven’t been to this place for quite sometime now. The last was hanging out with two good friends (you and you .. you’ve been tagged!) – and that was when? Must be close to 2 years now or is it 3 ?  Love to have this kind of session again – we call this session the “Detox Session” – talking and discussing leisurely about anything – the remisnigng the random reminiscences is always the most interesting part!

Anyway, that was yesterday afternoon.

An hour ago, I read emails.  One of the emails I received today came from Mom Bloggers Club. Here’s sharing something I find rather interesting – Jennifer’s success story penetrating the www and in gaining popularity among mom bloggers!.
