Standard Chartered KL Marathon

June 28, 2010
Jun 27, 2010
The Standard Chartered KL Marathon kicked off Sunday morning at Dataran Merdeka.
As early as 5am for the Full Marathon even is slight raining .

There is several multiple categories available such as Full Marathon (42km),
Half Marathon (21km),Corporate Challenge (10KM), Fun Run (5km),
Seeing is believing (3km) and Kids Dash.
So to start my first ever run, I registered myself for the 5km run as a Fun Run ๐Ÿ˜›
As i consider myself .. not a runner and not a sport person ๐Ÿ˜›
Thot to bring along Jeremy for this fun run, but at the end we didn’t take him along .
Too young and he is not feeling so well ….
Better let him save his energy for this Sunday Sport Day by the Kiddy .

It was quite great event, Here some photos to show :
wow .. alot of people …. i tell u ….
The finish point .
As for me, i took almost one hour to finish for the 5KM … hahahh .. so “char” !!
The winner took 2 hours and 17 minutes to finish the full marathon (42KM).
( According to a comments that leave to me :)))
I really salute them …

At the end of the run , we each got a Certificate .
Each got a “tiger balm” for shoulder and neck rub ๐Ÿ˜›
No metal for 5km ..

The Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2010 is set to do Malaysia proud and beckons the public to support this year’s of having 16,500 runners!

Alright , after this run, my goal for next year will be 10KM !! ๐Ÿ˜›

Btw, i also meet up with a blogger – Paik Ling .. she’s a real runner & very friendly too ๐Ÿ˜›
& also meet up with a Silent reader to my blog …
Thanks and sorry didn’t get to know your name, cos it was so sudden that you know my name ๐Ÿ˜›

As i m abit “blur” and tired … thanks again and nice to meet u ๐Ÿ˜›

…………..

After all the events , that’s a sad news happened during the race as well …

Just read from The Star Newspaper .
A runner participating in a 10km run had collapsed and died during the race,
adding that he was given first-aid treatment on site and rushed to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital.
But died on his way to the hospital . ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
I guess he is pushing and running too hard .
According to one of the runner , the
ambulance came late O.o
Arrived after 20 minute ,
When the ambulance arrived,
It did not have an automated external defibrillator or a face mask with pump (to pump in more air into the lungs) ??????

My hub always remind me,
If you think you can’t run .. just walk …
yah .. i was like half run half walk, as i m not train enough for this, even is 5Km,
Do not underestimate the distance ….

Overall is a great run minus the death.

Wall Mural

June 10, 2010
I remember i had my first wall mural done on Jeremy 2nd birthday .
A gift for him, but end up Baby Jareth the one who used this room ๐Ÿ˜›
Sometime i think … is good to had another boy,
If girl then i had to paint a princess wall mural … now can reused this wall mural ๐Ÿ˜›
After Baby J was born ….later one month, the name JARETH was painted on the WallThe “jungle”
After a good satisfaction on the first art wall mural,
Then again i had my 2nd wall mural on 2009 , rushing and completed before CNY
I remember , i was pregnant 5 months + when i painted this.
Remember i was scold by my MIL too O.o …
Climb up and down to paint …. ( no wander la .. Baby J so active …:P)
Once i had the inspiration to do it, i must done it quickly ,
Other wise …the inspiration gone.
I will stop and never will get it done .. i know myself !!

The “Red Wall”

Now mummy hands is abit “itch” already ..
Thot to paint another wall mural at the dining area or the family area .
But this round will take longer time , i guess ..
With 2 boys around , not sure when can start and finish …lol

I like the below Wall Mural which i search from net :
I will choose the simple with max 3 colour .

The roses and flower
( i like this .. but i think too feminine … i m the only “female” in the house..k )
The brothers
( This is very heart warming pictures …. but i like to get 4 person in)
Mummy, daddy and the brothers
The Illustrative
( This is the most impressive for me, but get the detail done is abit challenge for me)
To Colour/paint is not the problem for me, but to draw it on the wall is a challenge
I like this …
Or forget about Wall Mural ??
Go for :
Canvas Wall art ??
Or Canvas photos ??
I like Canvas actually .
But Big Canvas is always expensive .
I need at least 3 big Canvas on the Wall i plan to design .
Well … let me think of a simple and cheapest way to beautify my wall!!
So …..
Right now , let stop for the time being .
Lets take a blog break on a Short Vacation.
Later tonight got to pack and get my camera well prepared …
To …
“stay tune” for next week ๐Ÿ˜›

Thanks for dropping by here and you too to have a great Weekend ahead.

But I just love them all more than I ever knew was possible.

Today this 2 boys make me a loving mum,

A grateful mum and a blessed mum โ€ฆ.

Sometime abit crazy mum too… This is what mum is .

Before I was a mother I never knew this bliss.

As I continue to remain unplugged – I share with you these lovely picture.

An early Happy Mothers Days to all the Mums out there.

Hundreds of stars in the pretty sky,

Hundreds of shells on the shore together,


Hundreds of birds that go singing by,

Hundreds of lambs in the sunny weather,

Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn,

Hundreds of bees in the purple clover,

Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn,

But only one mother the world wide over.

Happy Mother’s Day .

Lately my company was re-structured. So my department was transferred to another company/division. I m still doing the same job for architectural cum illustrator .But ever since it was re-structured. We don’t have any admin or clerk or secretary . So i have to take up most of the admin work . Handle petty cash, staff annual leave, medical leave, Claim, Punch card time sheet , filing , department purchasing …endless ….

Even is for that 7 peoples… but is really keep me busy to the max. Well … maybe all this while i m not admin or paper work person. I m technical person … an art and designer person…. So all this thing really make me hand full .

Been complaining this to my “head of department”.
Hopefully he know what to do next …

Temporary madness

January 11, 2010
Monday blue ….. Perhaps is grey ….
2.15 am … I burst into tears …. in the toilet ….
I was so damn tiring and sick …
Having my PMS made me even more sick …
2.30 am …
Try very hard to make baby J sleep ..
Finally he fall sleep at 3am …
I was about to sleep …. i think i was just close my eye for second ..
& it’s already 4:30 am
Baby J was awake again, cried for awhile … & fall asleep after milk ..
The clock is ticking … and finally i fall sleep at 5am.
The alarm ring at 645am … drag myself up and get ready for work .

I had not been sleeping since Mid night Saturday …
Perhaps i slept at 430am on last Friday …
& i even can’t remember when is the last sleep i really had .
I means really fall into deep, smooth and nice sleep.
I lost my patient on the poor baby …
My heart was crushed from hearing him cry.
I felt like such a terrible person, and a bad mother.
I guess someway he is not feeling well or good …
That make him hard to fall a sleep ….
Things happened and drag on for few weeks ….. few weeks

That’s why i burst into tears this morning ..
Everything didn’t seem right to me …
I feel like shit, i feel like i m going to fall into pieces …
I just feel moody and angry .

After all this ….

And do you think i still can get myself into ALL this :I was ask to attend a …… facilitator course over the weekend!!
Suppose to be basic course only, end up everyone have to go for the advanced .
There’s 8 people was selected to attend this course .
From 8am to 6pm in one of the local U .

From the first day, and the first session of the course,
I know i was in the wrong train ,
Perhaps i feel like i was being hit by the train !!
But i still need to seat on the train and finish the journey !!
Session 1, …..2…..3…..4…..5….6….7 ….
I m sure for one thing ….
I finally decide not to seat for the examination after the course .
I know i will hand up with a blank paper .
Half of the colleague not taking the exam ….Too tough .
There’s open book exam over 40 question , 1 hour …
With a 4 inch thick note, i sure i cant remember where is where .
There’s group project ,
One people fail, whole group will fail …
If u cant answer question given by the lecturer, pro, dr , Ar, Ir ……
Means even i m from Archi background, i have to know about other people field/job.
Professional take few years to understand their job and scope of work ,
You think i can get to know their job in one month time ???

No go …

Every night 2 to 3 hour of sleep ..
I don’t think i can go for the exam ..
With all the calculation O.o graph O.o law O.o standards O.o to remember ..
Even no exam for me ….
But still have another few session to attend for the coming weekend too ..

I do feel bad for not taking up the exam ..
Cos is kind a waste …. probably no cert if no exam !!
Maybe my boss will be disappointed !!
Maybe my hubby will be disappointed too !!
Heh … i m disappointed too …. but i can’t help myself !!
Cos it sound like u didn’t complete the course .

I was going mad .
I am suffering from sleep deprivation. ..
If i lack of sleep …. my brain was not functioning properly .
Man, I was wrecked. I was really upset.
Hopefully this madness is just temporary.

okay .. sign off now …
Feel abit relief after pouring out all this madness ..
Feel relief after decided not taking the exam …

My Confinement Food .

October 20, 2009
This is a backdated post, But i like to share and jot this down .
Many women observe the traditional confinement period,
but not everyone finds it easy.
Itโ€™s based on the belief that when a woman has given birth,
her body is โ€œcold and weak”
Sometimes, Chinese older folks make like this period very complicated .
In order to bring herself back to health,
she must observe at least 30 days to 40 days
of certain lifestyle and dietary changes.

This round i appointed a pui yuet poh ( Confinement Lady),
I followed the confinement diet strictly for the first 30 days,
it was hard not to , cos i think we are paid to this service,
and we had to follow in order to bring back a strong body
& not wasting $$ for appoint a CL .. Not Cheap !!

According to the pui yuet poh.
Thereโ€™s a whole list of weird and Chinese foods that are said
to nourish the womanโ€™s body, revitalise health, expel wind,
create warmth and even increase the supply of breast milk.
I just take in whatever she said is good .
For 30 days only mah …
so still can tolerate and kuai kuai eat all the food she prepared .

I had breakfast at 8am, lunch at 12noon, tea time at 3pm,
dinner at 6pm… and the last supper at 9pm .
3 heavy meal with 2 light meal every single day ….
NO WAY to go on diet .

No plain water. Instead, i drink a special red date tea at all times.
But i like this drink and i been drinking alot too .

Below are some of the Confinement food. Not able to take all the pictures.
Cos sometime i m hungry and forget to take the photos… hahha
I like most of the food that the CL cook … at least for the first 3 weeks.
The last week … i started to slow down … too meaty and oily .
Btw, i can’t recall all the Confinement food. As i know got ..
Peanut & Pigโ€™s Trotter Soup ่Šฑ ็”Ÿ ็Œช ่„š ๆฑค.
Pork Knuckle in Ginger and Vinegar ็Œช ่„š ๅงœ ้†‹.
Double Boiled Angelica Chicken Tonic Soup ๅฝ“ ๅฝ’, ๅŒ— ่Šช ็‚– ้ธก ๆฑค
Broccoli Stir Fried with Ginger ่Šฅ ๅ…ฐ ่Šฑ ็‚’ ๅงœ ไธ
Steam Fish with Qi Zi ๆžธ ๆž ่’ธ ้ฑผ ๆŽ’
Steamed Fish with Ginger ๅงœ ไธ ๆธ… ่’ธ ้ฑผ
Steamed Drunken Chicken ่’ธ ้†‰ ้ธก
Fried Rice with Ginger.
Mee Suah with Ginger Wine.
Chicken and Black Fungus With Glutinous Wine Soup.
Papaya with fish and wine soup.
and many more……..

After too much of oily and meaty food every day.
I m so so so look forward to the dessert below during every tea time.
Red bean with longan &
Ginger, brown sugar, pandan , longan and sweet potato soup.
I love this as it gives me a calming effect.
