Wow! It has been a long time!

Yup! A long long time since I last wrote anything on my blog. What would I write? I absolutely have no idea...

It's a Dreary Gloomy Winter...

Hate Hate Winter!
Hate the cold.
Hate the gloominess.
Hate the rain.

Can't wait for the boys' holidays to start... and off we go to somewhere warmer and sunnier!
Can't get cheap flights at all. All flights are freaking expensive. We had to go after holidays have started... just to have slightly cheaper air tickets... BUT still so expensive!

Since it's only a two-week holiday, boys will only be away for 10 days. Need to come back for school ... ponteng one day though.

Why? Why? Why?

Why don't I blog anymore?
I actually totally forgot that I still have a blog in existence!

I'm sure you are gonna say "How Can???"
Sad. But true wor........

Life in this land is not exactly smooth sailing.
Why did we uproot the whole family from a comfortable life of maid, driver, leisurely life to one that I have to be the maid, cook, driver, laundress, etc etc.
Someone asked me the reason for moving Down Under...Is Australia really so good meh?
Most Malaysians with kids will be able to answer this question.

Yeah. Yeah. Seems hectic with so many cities/towns covered. But because we rented our own car, we could adjust the schedule however we want, up to a certain extent... as I had pre-booked all our hotels. I didn't want to end up in a city with no place to stay. At least we didn't have to wake up at 6.00 AM! That's the normal wake-up call for most packaged tours.

More details about France....

Year of the Ssssnake 2013

It is Chor-Yee (Second day of CNY) today... and things are certainly different from Malaysia or Singapore. Whereas these places will have at least two days of holidays, it's business-as-usual over here in Melbourne; and the boys are already back at school. Nope. No public holidays. Nada...

So how did we celebrate CNY over here?
We had REUNION DINNER on Saturday (9th Feb) with the hub's relatives - uncle and 2 sets of cousins etc. My youngest sis was supposed to join us with her hubby, but experienced Braxton Hix contractions. Asked her to stay home instead.

CNY Day... stayed in bed till about 10.30 am. So lazy. Then took S2 for his soccer information day.
I always sik-jai on Chor-Yatt so had bread and jam for lunch, for I had forgotten to cook my vegetarian Chap-Chye the day before. The boys and the hubs had bread with Spam. Supposed to go down to Crown Casino for the festivities. Am told that they have all sorts of food stalls, CNY performances, fireworks... but we were too lazy, and whilst we were just about to plonk down on the sofa... The hub's uncle called to ask us to visit an old aunt. So we went lor...

We had dinner with my sister & BIL at our house. What did we have?
- Yu Sang (of Course)
- Crabmeat and Sweetcorn Soup
- Vegetarian Chap Chye
- Fried SpareRibs
- Sang Choy Pau
- Fried Seafood with Sweet & Sour Sauce
- Roast Duck (Sis bought takeaway...)

Needless to say, we were all stuffed!
