Yes... I'm Yours, it's my kids favourite song by Jason Mraz... and I suppose to upload the video here as requested by Alyssa and JBoy but I can't figure it out though....*sigh* So, I hope the lyric should be fine at the moment... and I try to figure out the video later...

Sorry kids, Mummy not an IT expert...hehe

Here goes the lyric and get Daddy to sing for us later... *wink*


Well, you done done me and you bet
I felt it I tried to be chill but your so hot that
I melted I fell right through the cracks, now
I'm tryin to get back before the cool done run out
I'll be givin it my best test and nothin's gonna stop me but divine intervention
I reckon it's again my turn to win some or learn some
But I won't hesitate no more, no more, it cannot wait
I'm yours...

Well open up your mind and see like me
open up your plans and damn you're free
look into your heart and you'll find love love love love
listen to the music of the moment people dance and sing
We're just one big family
And it's our godforsaken right to be loved loved loved loved loved
So, i won't hesitate no more, no more, it cannot wait i'm sure
there's no need to complicate our time is short this is our fate
I'm yours...

Scooch on over closer, dear
And I will nibble your ear
I've been spendin' way too long checkin' my tongue in the mirror
and bendin' over backwards just to try to see it clearer
But my breath fogged up the glass and so
I drew a new face and I laughed I guess what
I'd be sayin' is there ain't no better reason
to rid yourself of vanities and just go with the seasons
it's what we aim to do our name is our virtue
But I won't hesitate no more, no more it cannot wait
I'm yours...

Well open up your mind and see like me
open up your plans and damn you're free
look into your heart and you will find that the sky is yours
so please don't, please don't, please don't,
there's no need to complicate,
Cause our time is short
This, this, this is our fate,
I'm yours...


Oh dear...! I was told by the nursery assistant yesterday, that Haryboy has biten 4 children at the nursery including her sister Alyssa. I feel sorry to the biten kids and I'm yet to talk to the mothers for an apologies. Well, on the way to my Parents house, Alyssa was saying "Mummy Haryboy being very naughty at the nursery, he bites Vera, Daniel, Damian and Me" while showing me the biten part on her stomach... ohhh it look painful though. I scolded Haryboy for that and he look so guilty, I hope he will understand and will never bite his friends as well as his siblings again...

Look humble and innocent but....

I Salute Her...

In this modern world, can you live this way?… well, perhaps YES, but what about alone?
Kampung house view...
Can you figure out the entrance to the house?
Water supply... depends on the rain...

And meet Aunty Alice...

My so-called Aunty live alone in that house, without electricity and water supply. She's in her 50, working with a cleaning service company. Infact, she was once asked by my late grandpa to get electricity connection and to get water from their house as the Aunty is just live behind my grandparents house, my late grandpa asked for only RM10 fees every month for that. Thus, the Aunty refused, she rather lives in the dark and depends on the rain for her water supply... oh well, actually my late grandpa not really asking money from her, he just teased her but she take it seriously. However, the next time, due to my grandma pity her life that way, again offered her the same thing, electricity connection and the water for FREE, but still she refused at all. Ermmm... the next thing we knew that the Aunty actually had a minor mental disturbance... but well, she still can work and comfortable with her lifes... I really salute her with her patience...

Pride and Joy

Especially dedicated to my children...
You've been my pride and joy
Right from you are born into this world
You've brought us lots of happiness
In countless little ways
And while I enjoy my memories
And I treasure every one of you
I know you'll always bring us joy
You're just that kind of child of mine...

Worries Sunday and Monday…*sigh*

I appreciated all the Sundays I had… who doesn’t right. Sunday is a golden day for me and the family especially spending time the whole day with the kids, besides I can do my weekend project, trying my ability to make some simple “kuih” hehe... BUT tomorrow is really a worry Sunday for us, where Jeremiah need to be admitted at Likas Hospital for a minor operation on Monday morning, even more worry Monday *sigh* Infact, the operation has postponed a few times (and this is the 5th time) as the previous one Jeremiah wasn’t fit to go for it due to his is having flu, cough and fever when every time nearer to the admission date, till my grandma said that Jeremiah knows when is the suitable time for him... (macam ada six sense pula si JBoy ni…)

I hope JBoy can still smile like this in the Hospital, with the jab, drip and so on...
Therefore, my friends out there, I really need your favor to pray for Jeremiah, may the operation goes well and successful.
I leave everything to God.
Lord Have Mercy…

Lyssa got 2 sets of puzzles given by Beatrice (their nursery's supervisor, where they used to call her Mummy Ilis) during her 5th birthday. My thanks to Beatrice that the puzzles made my life easy looking after the kids yesterday, that the whole day my kids stay silence at home doing the puzzles. I don't how many times they did it and reshuffled it and start doing it again and again... I hope it will continue on every weekends...hehe

Look at Lyssa, Jeremiah and Brady... concentrate on the puzzle...

I believe that people often limit themselves at achievement
by feeling that they have to pick and choose what they want
to be great at. Great leaders and teams don't limit themselves.
They make conscious decisions to be great at
every challenge they are presented with.

Pastor Bob's Sermons

Have you heard about Pastor Bob's? Pastor Bob is one who has served in the ministry of Young Life and Youth Development Inc. In addition to his ministry at Horizon North County and his position as CEO of Horizon Prep and Preschool. Currently he serves on the Advisory Board for the Billy Graham School of Evangelism. God has given Pastor Bob the ability to teach His Word in a simple yet powerful way allowing listeners of all ages to easily learn and apply the principles of the Bible to their daily lives. I came across the 'Emerging Dangers of the Emergent Church' series archive, part one and two in the website. In this series, Pastor Bob Botsford exposes the flawed doctrine of the Emergent church leaders, calling them out by name, quoting their own words and comparing the weakness of their thoughts to the weightiness of the Word of God. Check out this jaw-dropping series to find out by clicking Emergent Church. You may also find out about 'I Want A Better Marriage' Sermon Series. Here's the fact, if your marriage is lacking you're not alone! The truth is, the marriages that have succeeded have not done so apart from lots of hard work. Do visit the marriage series by clicking I Want A Better Marriage to find our more. You will Find a Church in Rancho Santa Fe. Please visit the websites to find out more...

Ewww... talking about leech??? oh no! thanks... I'm phobia of leech due to my bad experienced during childhood. But wait.... have you heard about leech can help you to make good side income???

At first, I don't believe when I heard it from my uncle, cause I know that I will never never never will involve in leech business... no way!

Then, I heard peoples talking about it out there, even in the TV news, saying that it really a good business with a very reasonable model and you will see your profit in just a short period.

I was told by my uncle that it was a very good feedback from our Sabahan peoples who attended (about 100 peoples) the first course organised in one of the hotel in KK. And my uncle is really into the business now, look at his leech pond... ewww!! Well, good business eh! errmmm... something to consider

Quotes About Time Management

Time and space are fragments of the infinite for the use of finite creatures.
~ Henri Frederic Amiel ~

You will never "find" time for anything. If you want time, you must make it.
~ Charles Bruxton ~

I recommend you take care of the minutes and the hours will take care of themselves.
~ Earl of Chesterfield ~

To comprehend a man's life, it is necessary to know not merely what he does
but also what he purposely leaves undone. There is a limit to the work that can be got out
of a human body or a human brain, and he is a wise man who wastes no energy on pursuits
for which he is not fitted; and he is till wiser who, from among the things
that he can do well, chooses and resolutely follows the best.
~ John Hall Gladstone ~

Corn “Hinompuka”

Again, my weekend project… corn “Hinompuka”, my own recipe *grin* (never in my life tried the corn “Hinompuka” hehe…), due to wrongly bought the ingredient, I ended up with this…

Did I mentioned about Virgin Coconut Oil in my previous post??? Hmmm... oh yes! I did. I believe everyone knows about the benefits of VCO. I came across about VCO reported in 'The Borneo Post' dated 24th August 2008, Addek, a kidney patient was helped and now looking healthy after consuming Virgin Coconut Oil. Yanto was bitten by a cobra snake, had applied the VCO quickly onto the part bitten and drank two spoonfuls of the oil even though snake-bitting was not included in the list that the oil is capable of treating. "I was lucky because the VCO saved my life and my life was not endangered at all by the snake's venom", said Yanto, adding that the miraculous oil has many other unknown usages.
On 31st Aug, morning, I'd received an SMS from my friend who is running the VCO business, she's having the Merdeka promotion for 3 days (31st Aug to 2nd Sept 2008) only, at RM38 per bottle (500ml), quite cheap compare to market price between RM55 - 60. Therefore, I forwarded the same SMS to all friends out there, who knows it might useful and helps who are in needs and guess what....??? on 31st Aug, I'd received 6 SMS for 10 bottles order, on 1st Sept, 5 SMS for 11 bottles and today so far 6 SMS and calls for 15 bottles... I was wow! with all the orders, until my friend asked me "are you sure with all the orders?" then I replied her, "nape, tak percaya?" hehe... So now, any order through blog? *grin*, hehe... Please take note that the price will be back to normal at RM40 per bottle from 3rd Sept onwards but again still cheap compare to market price anyway...
