To my faithful friend, Madam Calico Cat

Monday, October 19th, 2015

My phone rang this morning, and I felt uneasy to receive such an early call from the veterinary clinic. Alas the news was not a happy one as they informed to say my dear faithful Madam Cat has passed on. It was a blow to me as I was looking forward to have her for at least a few more years.

My Madam Calico Cat, goodbye my dear friend

My Calico Cat

Wednesday, September 9th, 2015

My calico cat has been with me for six years and six months since February 2009! That makes her about 7-1/2+ years old since she was an adult cat when I took her in way back then (I figure I add another year to account for it). Here’s

the post of how my calico cat came into my household. She’s one of the gentlest and a very patient cat. She doesn’t make loud cat meow when she wants food. And she will wait patiently for her cat food to be placed in her meal dish when I have many stuffs to unload from my car whenever I return home.

Baby 1 Year Old – Happy Birthday!

Monday, May 30th, 2011

Happy Birthday! Baby Aiden has reached the first milestone on his first birthday! It was a joyous occasion as Lena went about to celebrate in a big way! Yes, it seems like so fast a year has passed. It was a very busy year and we could see the progress and changes month by month as baby moves on to face new challenges.

Happy Birthday Aiden!

There is still more to come of course. Each baby has their own pace of development and ours is no different. One thing for sure, he really likes to laugh and when he is happy, get ready for a real shriek of a time. And if you happen to stand too near, well, even the hard of hearing would have no problem hearing! (more…)

TNB Tariff Rate Appliance Estimate

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

Received this email in my inbox which gives an estimate on the TNB Tariff Rate on home appliance usage. Although the costing looks small based on the hourly usage, it all adds up to your monthly bill. My own house electric bill goes for an average of RM150 per month. When the weather is hot with the heavier usage of air-con it can shoot up to RM200+. I heard some of my friends electric bill are as high as RM500+ or more per month! I wonder what they use to use up so much electricity! (more…)

Baby sleeping

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

It is always nice to see baby sleeping peacefully. While they are still a baby, they need lots of sleeping time. I didn’t realize children need lots of sleep till right to their teens! No wonder I need quite a fair bit of sleep during those years! All along I thought the average sleep required was about 8 hours. Though while I was younger I needed about 9 hours or more of sleeping time per day. Now with this chart from BabyCentre, I realize more sleeping time is required for children and youth! (more…)
