My Neighbour Is Driving Me Crazy With….

…. her curries. Every morning at around 10ish am, my Sikh neighbour will start to cook her curry. First I hear her blending the onions and stuff in the blender and in less than an hour’s time, I smell her heavenly curry. I tell you, the mouth watering aroma of the curries that wafted from her kitchen to our kitchen each morning can really make my tummy rumble and growl. I love curries, especially the authentic Indian or Sikh curries. And my neighbour is such a good cook. Not only do her curries whet my appetite, even the aroma of her fried chicken and fried stuff are driving me hungry every morning. Yesterday, I met my neighbour at the van selling vegetables outside our house and I told her that her curries smell damn good and hinted to her that one day, I have to sample them. She just smiled proudly. I hope she got the hint and will one day, ring on my door bell and present me with a bowl of her delicious curry! I’m gluttonous, ain’t I?

Sorry For Not Replying Your Comments

To all my blogging pals and fan-sees, sorry if I’ve not replied to the comments you had left in my posts yesterday and today. My blog is acting up big time and causing me headache since yesterday. I’ve lost count on the number of times I had to log out of Blogger and log in again for each task that I had to perform. I wasted many hours logging in and out of Blogger and shutting down my PC today. I just hope my PC is not infested by a serious bug or virus. My hub’s computer wiz friend will come over tonight to investigate the problem. I’m praying that my PC will be A-ok.

Cherry — thanks for advising me to delete some files from my C-drive. I did that but that does not seem to help.

Driving Me Bonkers

My blog is driving me nuts. There is something seriously wrong with either Blogspot or my computer. Each time I try to perform a task like edit a post, click on a link, click on the permanent link, etc. my computer will ‘hang’ and I have to log out from Blogger and log in again. Then an error message will appear. It is slowing down everything and wasting so much of my time. I hate this downtime. I am already so pressed for time everyday and with a technical glitch like this, I can really go bonkers. I bet myself when I publish this post, my computer will ‘hang’ again. Aarrgghhh…….

Looking For A New Maid

For the last few weeks, I’ve been browsing through the website of my maid agency looking at the resumes of new maids. None of them look pleasant or suitable. Most of them are either too young or too old. If I get one who is too young, I run an extremely high risk of her running away with her boyfriend. I’ve had bad experiences with this group of maids. If they are too old, they may be good with my kids but then, they may lack the stamina or initiative or they may not like being told off by a younger employer. My parents have an old maid of 50+ yo now and she’s such a pain in the neck (can’t seem to follow instructions, stubborn, super slow in her work, cannot do chores that are too tough due to her age, extremely fussy with her food and doesn’t look pleasant at all) but my parents are keeping her as my grandma of 90 y.o. adores her. She had lied about her age in her resume. She declared that she’s only 40+ but alas, she herself spilled the beans when she accidentally blurted out her age.

Those who look pretty are also a no-no coz they are most likely to attract men to my house as there are many male foreign workers at my housing estate, thus also risking my safety as well as my 2 gals’. I just need someone who is obedient, initiative, hardworking, trustworthy, good and patient with my 2 naughty gals and one who looks fairly pleasant. I wonder why I am never lucky with getting good maids who are willing to work for me for 10 years or more though I treat my maids so well. I pay for all their toiletries, buy them clothes, pay their phone bills when they call back to Indon without deducting from their salaries, treat them to meals in hotels and restaurants, eat whatever good food we eat yet I am never lucky enough to get one good and loyal maid. I’m just praying that I’ll be 5th time lucky this time round.

Tag : 8 Random Facts About My Mom

Got thig tag from Cute Ashley’s mom and this Lovely Mummy. I wonder why it has to be 8 facts again and not other numbers. All the recent tags seem to be phat (8) related, you realize? Anyway, here it goes :

1) My mom is 61 years old but she certainly looks way younger. She and my dad have young-looking genes, which make me look young too 🙂
2) My mom has 3 children (2 boys and 1 girl) and I’m in the middle.
3) My mom is super slim and doesn’t seem to gain any weight though she is a carbo-addict. So unfair!
4) My mom was a teacher in MGS Ipoh.
5) My mom attends line-dancing classes every week.
6) My mom loves her 2 grand daughters very much and loves to pamper them with gifts.
7) My mom and I used to travel overseas for vacation before I got married.
8) My mom is super health-conscious and eats very bland food as she has some health conditions.

I’m curious to know the following bloggers’ mommies ‘phats’ too :

1) Sasha
2) Princess Mom
3) Hui Sia

Wolfberry Bread

No, that’s not a pomelo, it looks like a pomelo skin but it’s actually a ‘kei zhi’ or wolfberry bread that my mil bought from the bakery. Very unique eh, bakeries these days are mushrooming everywhere and in my housing estate alone, there are more than 5 bakeries, so these bakeries are whipping up extraordinary products to entice customers. No more run-of-the-mill kaya buns, coconut buns or cheese buns but you see new items like wolfberry bread, sotong ink bread (which is black in color but taste really yummy as it is slightly saltish), yam custard buns, black sesame seed bread and the list goes.

So how does this bread taste? Well, not really to my liking as it feels like biting onto a herbal bread. I love herbal soups but not herbal bread (the smell of herbal is a little too strong), though there are many sunflower seeds inside the bread but the smell of the wolfberry in the bread just couldn’t agree with my tastebud.

Problem With Blogger

Is anyone experiencing problem with Blogger (Blogspot) for the last 2 days? I am experiencing extremely slow downloading time of my blog, editing and creating my posts and a host of other problems. Each time I attempted to edit my post, I get a message stating “Out of memory at line : 56”. That’s the reason why I hadn’t written many posts or visited many blogs for the last 2 days. I hope my computer is not infested with some bugs or virus. I think I’d better ask my hubby to get his computer buff friend to check out my computer before it conks out.
