Kaitlyn Turns 3!!

Gosh.. was it a long day!
Jacob had a class at 9am in the morning so, we basically had only 5 mins with the bday girl b4 we had to rush out the door.
It took Jocyee(my brother's girlfriend) and I about 1 hour and 2 shops later to find this pretty little barbie doll cake.

So right after Jacob finishes his afternoon class, we rushed off to pick up the cake and off to see our little bday girl!
"Yeh-yeh"aka Poppa and "Nai-Nai" aka Granna got to join in the celebration thanks to Today's Modern Tecnology. Naming the MSN Video Conferencing

It was pretty hard keeping the kids away of the icing!! The bday girl had her share of icing and chocolate decorations.

She had lots of prezzies, some are even all the way from NZ (Great Grand Nanna, Yeh-yeh and Nai-Nai's, Minky)and not to forget a card from Unki Moo-Moo, in London.

Kaitlyn's God Mother, Minky, send her the wings, so she made us hold her up so that she could fly! Thanks Minky!! ;p

The Bday girl had a great time! She was out like a light by 9 pm! Slept like a baby! Didn't wake up once during the night!

We have just introduced Kaitlyn, who is turning 3 tomorrow, to the computer. We've got her an interactive CD-rom, to learn English, Malay and Chinese.

Kaitlyn : Gong-gong, I want the ... er...

Gong-gong : What do you want?

Kaitlyn thinking really hard : the... frog..

Gong-gong : What Frog?

Kaitlyn : There.. the frog for the computer le..

Everyone just cracked up laughing!!!

Mummy pointing to the mouse : What is this??

Kaitlyn : Frog... (checky smile on)

Mummy : No, it's a mouse!

Kaitlyn : Ooo... Cannot say frog, it's a mouse!


Gosh this time last year(I've been informed that I wrote last year on here when she is turning 3!! hehehe I meant 3 years! 3 YEARS!! ago) I was in labour with her! a whole 29 hours of it!! In another blink of an eye, she would be 18? then 25? Time sure flies!!

Caleb is Walking!!!!

Caleb is Walking a few steps by himself now!! Only two or three steps, but it's good considering he has a shorter limp, and he tries to run b4 he starts to walk! He is one month slower than Kaitlyn, Kaitlyn by herself by 9 1/2 months!

Whenever your children are out of control,you can take comfort from the thought thateven God's omnipotence did not extendto His own children.After creating heaven and earth,God created Adam and Eve.And the first thing he said was"DON'T!"

"Don't what?"Adam replied.

"Don't eat the forbidden fruit."God said.

"Forbidden fruit?We have forbidden fruit?Hey Eve..we have forbidden fruit!"

"No Way!"

"Yes way!"

"Do NOT eat the fruit! "said God.


"Because I am your Father and I said so! "God replied,wondering why He hadn't stoppedcreation after making the elephants.A few minutes later,God saw His children having an apple breakand He was ticked!"Didn't I tell you not to eat the fruit? "God asked.

"Uh huh,"Adam replied.

"Then why did you? "said the Father."I don't know,"said Eve.

"She started it! "Adam said.

"Did not! "

"Did too! "


Having had it with the two of them,God's punishment was that Adam and Eveshould have children of their own.
Thus the pattern was set and it has never changed.

BUT THERE IS REASSURANCE IN THE STORY! If you have persistently and lovingly tried to give children wisdom and they haven't taken it,don't be hard on yourself.If God had trouble raising children,what makes you think it would bea piece of cake for you?


1. You spend the first two years of their lifeteaching them to walk and talk. Then you spendthe next sixteen telling them to sit down and shut up.

2. Grandchildren are God's rewardfor not killing your own children.

3. Mothers of teens now know whysome animals eat their young.

4. Children seldom misquote you.In fact,they usually repeat word for wordwhat you shouldn't have said.

5. The main purpose of holding children's partiesis to remind yourself that there are childrenmore awful than your own.6. We childproofed our homes,but they are still getting in.

ADVICE FOR THE DAY:Be nice to your kids.They will choose yournursing home one day.



"TAKE TWO ASPIRIN"AND "KEEP AWAY FROM CHILDREN"!!!!! Quick,send this on to ten peoplewithin the next five minutes. Nothing will happen if you don't,but if you do,ten people will be laughing

We Got it!!!~~~ 2011 World Cup is going to be in NZ!

Yay!!! Looks like we will be back in NZ in 2011!! :p
The All Black are playing great at the moment! But always when it comes to the World Cup .. they some how just fold!!! Let's hope that they would win the 2007 World Cup take the Cup home, and then win it again at home!! Fingers crossed!!

BirdFlu + Tamiflu = ???

The New Zealand Government says it has a stockpile of the anti-flu drug Tamiflu to cover 21 per cent of the population should there be a bird flu pandemic.

I don't know to be happy or worried!

Tamiflu linked to deaths of 12 children ( )
Yesterday in a report posted online, the US Food and Drug Administration said that 12 children had died in Japan from a range of causes including heart attack, suicide, pneumonia, and acute pancreatitis. Four had suffered a "sudden death" which was" an unusual phenomenon in otherwise healthy children". All had taken Tamiflu.

I received this from someone today and thought I would share it with all of you!

During a BBQ a friend stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) and just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes. They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food - while she appeared a bit shaken up, Ingrid went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening. Ingrid's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital (at 6:00pm , Ingrid passed away.)
She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ - had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke perhaps Ingrid would be with us today. It only takes a minute to read this - Recognizing a Stroke ----- A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke... totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed and getting to the patient within 3 hours which is tough.

Thank God for the sense to remember the "3" steps.
Read and Learn!
Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke. Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:

1. *Ask the individual to SMILE.
2. *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.
3. *Ask the person to SAY A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)(example: It is sunny today?)

If he or she has trouble with any of these tasks, call 9-1-1 immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher. After discovering that a group of non-medical volunteers could identify facial weakness, arm weakness and speech problems, researchers urged the general public to learn the three questions. They presented their conclusions at the American Stroke Association annual meeting last February. Widespread use of this test could result in prompt diagnosis and treatment of the stroke and prevent brain damage.

Text next to the towers: “2.863 people died”
Text next to the guy: “40 milllion of HIV infected in the world.”
“The world united against terrorism. It should also be united against AIDS”.
Next to the towers: “2.863 people died”
Next to the kid:: “824 million people starving in the world”.
“The world united against terrorism. It should also be united against HUNGER.”
Next to the towers: “2.863 people died”
Next to the old man: “630 million of homeless people in the world”.
“The world united against terrorism. It should also be united against POVERTY”.
Solidarity is needed.

Egyptian blogger arrested!

CAIRO, Egypt: Egyptian police have detained a blogger for his anti-Islamic and anti-government writings and confiscated his books and copies of his articles, his family and other bloggers said Thursday

Bah... After all my complaining today, er.. Am I going to be in trouble?! :p

Like I alway tell Jacob, "If you have nothing NICE to say, don't say anything!" So I guess I should start Walking my own Talk! :p It's going to be a tuffy! Why do you think I'm so quiet all the time?!?! hehehhe

H5N1, Bird flu

Vietnam has new human bird flu suspect. Yikes, there are already more than 40 deaths in Vietnam alone; 1 @ Hong Kong; 4 @ Indonesia; 4 @ Cambodia; 13 @ Thailand; and guess what? NONE in Malaysia!! Is that possible? Either we are really lucky or ....

As of November 1, 2005, 122 cases of human infection, resulting in 62 deaths, have been confirmed outside of China (see Human cases). Thirteen countries across Asia and Europe have been affected. Additionally, more than 120 million birds have died from infection or been culled.

Since H5N1 is an influenza virus, symptoms similar to those of the common flu, such as fever, cough, sore throat, and sore muscles, can develop in infected humans. However, in more severe cases, pneumonia and respiratory failure can develop and eventually cause death. Patients with H5N1 avian influenza have rarely had conjunctivitis[3], unlike human cases of infection by the H7 virus.

from WikiPedia

My little man is having Flu, cough, don't know about sore throat or muscles, but no fever. So are we safe? I'm starting to develop a sore throat now too and have been sneezing... Argh.. Panic, panic!.. Sigh..

Government supports plan to get non-Muslims to wear tudung

Dr Ongkili said he would follow up on the matter with the ministry, adding that it would not come to a stage where all non-Muslims would be forced to wear the tudung.

Huh?!?!? What's this?!?! Click on the Title and it would lead you to the article in "The Star". I'm leaving if that happens!

Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri!!

Today is the 6th day of the "Ops Sikap IX Watch" and there are already 5852 accidents on the road, with 95 dead! (15 more than 2004's 6th day) Sigh.. either there are more ppl on the roads or more idiots on the road; Jacob calls it 'natural selection'! But it's pretty sad to see so many irresposible people on the road! And mostly Muslims... ok, it's a Muslim festival, but it's not like they are drink driving...
They are implementing a "withholding of licences for 14 days" move "Among the offences are dangerous driving, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and speeding" but really.. if they commit these offences, how much are they going to care about not driving with their licences?? Plus, they would probably would be in hospital for that 14 days anyway! And honestly, how many times are we pulled over to be checked for licences?!
