Second Time In Labour

Took almost a day to deliver my eldest son. Luckily I don't have to go through a C-Section. By the time I got pregnant the second time, it was almost two years apart. Could still remember that day as clearly as my first labour.

It was a Sunday morning, I woke up and felt the pain or maybe the pain woke me up. Since it took so long to deliver my eldest son, I told myself, take my time to prepare myself this time. I woke hubby and my son up and told them it is time to go to the hospital. My son was almost three then. Like any other toddler, at first he fuss around refuse to wake up but when I told him that we need to get to the hospital to get his brother, he jumped up and could not stop asking question.

I brush my teeth, took a shower and even had time to prepare breakfast. I want to make sure my son had a full stomach before we leave the house. Once we reach the hospital the nurse asked me to sit on a wheel chair and wheeled me straight to the labour room. Hubby then took my son to the ground floor to register and make payment.

When I was being wheeled to the labour room, the nurse asked if this was my first child, told them it was my second and that's it. The nurses and the mid-wife in the labour room all started treating me differently. Most of the time I was given that "you should know better" statement assuming I should memorized all the details as to what I should do next like memorizing a text book preparing for a major exam. Luckily the doctor, the same male doctor that delivered my eldest son, still treat me like before.

No wonder most ladies I asked preferred a male doctor to deliver their child as they are more sympathetic than female doctors. Most female doctors, midwife and female nurses get agitated easily during labour and put up that "serves you right, you asked for it" look most of the time. Hahahah, no offense to female nurses and doctors out there.

As far as I could remember, the nurses treated me better the first time around. Anyway, back to my tale, right after hubby had done filling up the necessary forms and made payment, he took my son to see me in the labour ward. By the time they reach my room, the nurse is ready to show them my second son.

My eldest was so excited seeing his brother for the first time and still couldn't stop asking questions. He used to hold my tummy with his two tiny hands and put his ear near and listen. Sometime when the baby moved while his hands are still on my tummy, he would laugh and asked thousands of questions. At last I got him a brother to play with, or should I say fight and argue with as they grow up.

Thanks for reading my tale and hope you have a wonderful day, today and everyday.

Simple Lunch

This is simple, yummy and good for your tummy. Oh yes, now only I realize I don't have greens on the plate. Experts said we should have at least five different colours on your plate every day.

To make sure the omelette comes out fluffy and smooth, I add a bit of corn starch that had been diluted in a bit of water then add into your eggs. Add salt and pepper to the eggs and beat it. Fry the prawns / meat / vegetable first, then place all the cooked ingredients into the bowl of raw eggs and mix well before pouring all into the hot pan.

The surface area of the egg that touches the pan gets cook first so scraped that layer of eggs up and make sure those those raw eggs from the top goes to the bottom. Keep doing this until all is cook. Learned this from t.v from a Chinese Chef. Seen some used milk instant and keep whisking the eggs while they are on the hot pan.

What ever way, as long as it turns out yummy, is always good for me. Thanks for reading and happy cooking. Kinda busy lately to visit all of you. Will visit you gals / guys more often when I have the time.

Wife For Sale?!?!?

I was having dinner with my sister and her family at a restaurant near my house. We were sitting there waiting for our food to arrived when suddenly my nephew said "oh can get a wife for RM600, not cheap!" and he pointed to this board. This is hilarious.

Actually below the poster there was a rack filled with a few types of biscuits all nicely wrap. Those words up there were actually direct translation from Chinese, the name of the biscuits. Yes, there is such a thing as wife biscuits. In Cantonese we called it "lo por pang" which means wife biscuit. Not that the husband should not eat it, it was just that traditionally, when you marry off your daughters, the groom side of the family would have to give a certain number of wife biscuits to the brides family about one to two weeks before the wedding. The bride's family will then send the biscuits together with the wedding invitation card to friends and relatives, and yes, most of the time, by hand.

Guess the shop owner just want to save space and paper, he just wrote wife, and it is only RM6.00 and not RM600. He even saved on ink for decimal. My youngest son went up to the board and took this photo with his hand phone and the shop owner and his workers kept looking at him, puzzled, still not knowing that in English it means you could actually buy a wife from his shop. Guess his English is not too good.

Just thought of sharing this with you. Thanks for reading. Wonder if any foreigner had ever ask to see the "wife" catalog instead of the food menu. Hahahah!

That Should Be Me

That should be me on that plane, that should be me in those photos, that should be me holding that medal, that should be me driving that luxury car, that should be me, who got promoted, that should be me, that should be me, that should be me....

Voices in the head of those who often torture themselves with jealousy, could not stand looking or hearing about the victory of others. Can't stand when others are better off than them. Shouldn't they be happy for that person instead. What they didn't realize is that it shows on their face, their body language and the tone of their voice. Unless of course they had been to acting school and is damn good at hiding their jealousy.

Recently, a D.J mentioned over the radio that at one time, when he was at a friend's house, a car pulled over and park in front of the house. The host walked to the window and peek, came back and said in an agitated way, "Who does my brother-in-law thinks he is, driving such an expensive luxury car?"

Once, a teenage girl was showing off a medal that she received from school due to her straight A's, to all her cousins, uncles and aunts. One of her uncle look away and didn't say another word after that. Maybe his kids weren't that good in their studies.

Then there was a time when a lady was showing her vacation photos oversea, to the rest of her families, one of her sister-in-law suddenly turned a sour face in just seconds and sat there whole night sulking.

You don't have to be an expert in face or body language reading to know that those mentioned above are suffering in side with "that should be me...." Hope they realize soon that others can read their mind and had just turn a good relationship into a bad one.

Hope folks like these should make a change and learn to be happy for others and no doubt do envy others but positively and use it as a motivational force for them to strive harder to achieve their dream. If she / he can do it/ have it, so can I.

Thanks for reading and start feeling happy / glad for others, sincerely, because your face and body language never lies, even a child could sense it.

My Berries

Look at my berries, these are blackberries right? My father-in-law gave it to us. He got it from his sister. Can't wait for it to turn black / darker red. It is much sweeter when it is dark in colour. Could only harvest about half a bowl each time so not enough to make jam.

Thanks for dropping by. Happy gardening to you.

Do What the Big Boys Do (funny)

An old man, walking down the street saw a small boy sitting on the curb crying. He stopped and asked, "Little boy, why are you crying?" The little boy said, "I'm crying because I can't do what the big boys do." So the old man sat down alongside of him and cried too.

My Back Neighbor

One hot afternoon, my back neighbor was painting his gate wearing two jackets. I asked him why he was wearing two jackets on such a hot day. He said that the directions on the can read: For best results, put on two coats......!

Note on top of gas cylinder: WARNING ON THE BOTTOM
