The photo would have given it away....yes bu-lian=durian!

After a few time pronouncing durian perfectly, AIR1 sometimes says bu-lian.

And when I asked him what he wanted for dinner - chicken? he shook his head. nuggets? again shook his head. rice? shook his head again. Then I asked him so what you want? Instantly he said bu-lain!

Tried to hide my amusement.

What is that?

A very much delayed posting.

The picture doesn't do much justice as I keep forgetting and only took the photo at night. I'm not good at night photography (not that I was any good in any photography for that matter ;p)

Take a guess - what did I make? take a guess....It's not shaped like it's supposed too!

Savoury scones - aubergine, chicken ham and cheddar scones. My first attempt and it wasn't too bad. Though the dough turned out to be not as thick as it should be (it should be able to be rolled like bread dough but turned up not) it still tasted fine. I wasn't bothered to actually add more flour to make it thick to its required consistency, fearing that I might do something wrong and also the fact that I would then have too many scones!

Turned out I has scones with lots of stuff! :) Attempt #2 is in the queue...tonight or tomorrow!

First beach experience for AIR2

Getting daily updates

It was a short but fun stopover in Desaru, especially for AIR1. The pool, the beach and the playland were his favourites! AIR2 had her share of fun too. Her first beach experience was quite hillarious.

Busy Busy March

It's been 2 weeks since my last update!! Oh boy....

It has also been a JB-Desaru-KL-Ipoh havoc week and work is not getting any easier. Lots of travelling and plenty of stuff to be sorted out.

My new toy (to be revealed later) was delivered last night, tried it out for 10mins today and well, I'm liking it!!

Time to get some breakfast and I'll be back!

Invasion of my personal space

KUL-BKI-LDU and the KUL-BKI sector saw a full flight.

Whenever I fly alone, aisle sit it shall be. After so many flights, my conclusion, never sit next to a 'makcik'. I'm not being racist here, but from my experience, it has been 100% true.

1. Usually this lady tends to be 'horizontally challenged'.

2. Always has a travelling buddy, i.e. another 'makcik'.

3. She thinks she paid for 1.5 seats instead of 1.

4. Arm will be on my arm rest and conveniently at times intrude into my personal space.

5. Carries large 'mature lady type' handbags, which will first be at the feet, somehow when plane takes off, it moves up to her lap and once in the air, somehow it will end up on the 'table', until meal is served, then she gets 'kelam kabut' not knowing where to put it.

6. Bag ends up on her lap and depending on how 'challenged' she is, it will tilt the table.

7. Half the time, while eating, due to space constraint, her elbow jabs me, almost her whole arm by now is within my personal space.

Once not enough, more than once her arm will keep coming. Unfortunately I had no where to run! :(

That annoys me sooooo much! Out of respect, I just bite my tongue and move closer to the aisle. Thank God I still have space to squirm away.

Starting young

This is what you should do when your 'teacher' forces you to read when all you want to do is sleep ;p (upside down pun upside down lah)

When babies meet

Aydeen: Now let me check her out.

Aydeen: OK kot.
Alvina: hahahaha but mummy I want to mum-mum.
