Christmas Ang Pow

Babai will be going through an exam at 1pm today.
That explained why I have been a bit quite than normal.
Because he had been very quite himself, full concentration on his study. I had to keep to a corner by myself, even had to be in separate area of the house lest he would produce unhappy growled at being disturbed :D

I myself kinda nervous actually. Both of us are really hoping that he can go through it with flying colors, because it will means a better career life for him in the future.

I felt that at the same time, I have been neglecting him. I was busy with my own work in the office and around the house. Last night I felt I have to give him a better time, so I decided to make him salad for dinner. Haha. It's been awhile I haven't eaten salad since the last time I was on a proper diet regime. It's make me think that I might have allergy to it (if you read Dr. Atkin book, you'll know what I means ;) Surprisingly, it was a very refreshing dinner and Babai tried making me to promise to have salad for dinner all the way until the day we were to go back to Kuching. Uwaaa! I dowan! Kuikui..

Last night was also the last time I stocked up on groceries, barely enough to see us through for another week. I also managed to get rid of unwanted stuff in both the fridges and the inside looked so much better now. Expired foods in the fridge are the last thing I want to come back to 'next year' urgh. Now that we found Jack's dogsitter, I felt so relief and able to make plans for other stuffs.

Looks like I won't be doing any Christmas shopping this year. I think I'm going to give ang pow instead of gifts to my almost 20 nephews and nieces. Kids stuff are not cheap u know...*sigh*

Hi Sumuk,

What exam Babai is sitting? Is it over?

I haven't stock any food in my house yet. Yesterday, i wanted to go to Boulevard shopping mall, but then it was full. so i decided to drive past the shopping mall and went home nothing. However, i had a wonderful dinner with my wife and son. They had been away for a month from me coz they went to stay in their kampung.

I guess tonight is worst, because Christmas is near and the govt. servants are getting their salaries. Mine? not yet. another 2 days. Hahaha But then, we are not celebrating Christmas this year, as our fr-in-law had just passed away.

I agree with you that kids stuff are expensive. I am a bit careful when buying toys for my son. I usually buy educational toys for him to play. I discourage my son to watch ultraman, doraemon etc. These cartoons have toys.HEhehe

I'm so sorry to hear abt your father in law.. I didn't know. no wonder.. again I'm very sorry.

wah really lots of people? but still can do groceries shopping at other smaller shops kan? but the good things about bigger supermarket is that u get everything in one place, very convenient.

wah.. the father can buy gundam, later the son ask for it too then how?.. ask original bandai some more..:D
