Really Funny

Yesterday, I had a real good laugh when I saw Alycia and Sherilyn trying to get inside this toy tunnel with the tunnel in an upright position. The tunnel is meant to be placed on the floor for them to crawl inside but nope, whenever their imagination run wild, they can just think of anything new to experiment with.

What tickled my funny bone was seeing the both of them giggling and squealing away as they tried to scramble into the small opening of the tunnel and as the tunnel sprang up, they tried to balance themselves in order not to fall on the floor. I stopped them from playing further as it was quite dangerous but before I stopped them, I quickly took a pot-shot of them.

Blog Marathon, Again

I’m running a blog marathon again today. I’ve just submitted 4 paid posts today and I have another 5 to complete. Reason being I’ll be going back to Ipoh tomorrow to celebrate my dad’s birthday. I’ll be away for 3-4 days, during which time I dont think I’ll have the time to do much blogging. So if you don’t see me visiting your blog today, just be patient, I’ll do so soon.

To Ashley’s mum and the rest of the mommy bloggers, you have a great gathering at Bangsar Village. How I wish I could join you all too as I’d really love to meet all of you.

All-In-One Wholesome Dish

This is what we had for lunch yesterday :

A wholesome omelette made with 3 eggs, 1 Japanese sweet potato shredded, some minced chicken meat, chopped spring onions, Bombay onions and a dash of salt and pepper.

You get protein and iron from the eggs, carbohydrate and Vit A from the sweet potato, fibre from the sweet potato, spring onions and Bombay onions. Quite a complete meal for kids.

That’s watercress vegetables (‘sai yeong choy’ in Cantonese) soup with carrots, Chinese almonds, honey dates, red dates and chicken. A very nutritious soup that’s tasty and soothing.

Paid Posts

My favorite advertiser finally released some offers for me early this morning. That’s the advantage of rising early in the morning, the early bird definitely gets to catch bountiful amount of worms.

This Tiga P is really driving me nuts. They rejected one of my posts today, citing the reason I used sentences from the web release and advertiser’s site. Oh for pete’s sake, the post is on a product, of course I have to write some stuff from the advertiser’s website, otherwise what else is there to write? They are just nit picking on us posties (prob only m’sians) and making it really hard for us to earn our honest living.

Purple Cabbage

I was caught by surprise that not many people have seen a purple cabbage. Each time I have visitors at home and they see me cooking a purple cabbage dish, they would ask what that is. I love cabbages and also vegetables with dark colors. The darker the color of the vege, the more nutrients they contain. There’s also the purple long beans and the purple cauliflower but I’ve not bought the purple cauliflower yet. Will try to get it one day.

Cabbages are rich in Vitamin K and Vitamin C, fibre, manganese, vitamin B6 and folate, thiamin, riboflavin, calcium, potassium, vitamin A, tryptophan, protein and magnesium. I normally shred the cabbage into thin strips and stir-fry them with dried shrimps or miso paste. Also goes well if fried together with noodles.

This is fried mee hoon with purple cabbage. When cooked with noodles, everything turns purple from the noodles to the eggs, garlic, puffed tofu and fish cakes. Alycia and Sherilyn find the purple dish very amusing and they enjoy eating them too.

My Gals Are Learning BM Fast

Yes they are. Alycia and Sherilyn can understand Bahasa Melayu (BM) pretty well when my maid speaks to them in BM. They can also speak a smattering of BM :

I tak mau (I don’t want)
Mana (where)
Makan (eat)
Kencing (wee wee)
Berak (poo poo)
Buang (throw)
Simpan (keep)
Minum (drink)
Balik (come home)
Kasut (shoes)
Pergi (go)
Kucing (cat)
Kotor (dirty)
Mau banyak (want a lot)
Duduk sini (sit here)
Kakak you cari for me (kakak you find for me)
Learning to count satu, dua, tiga (one, two, three, etc.)………. in BM
and much more but that’s all I can think of now.

When our new maid arrives in December, hopefully the gals will be able to converse with her in simple BM whilst I teach the new maid some simple English.
