Alycia Can’t Accept Being A Loser

My mum was teaching Alycia and Sherilyn the concept of addition and subtraction through playing cards when Alycia lost the game. She was so upset with losing the game that she cried and wouldn’t accept being a loser, though my mum explained to her that it’s ok to lose.

When I tried to snap a picture of her, she ran away from the camera.

and was really angry with me and with granny for making her lose in the game.

She cried and cried non-stop and couldn’t accept the fact that she had lost.  After about half an hour of meltdown, she calmed down a little.  I gave her a hug and told her it’s ok to lose. I told her that sometimes she has to lose and sometimes she wins.  We then had dinner and she was all smiles again.

Will Our 3 Angels Follow Daddy’s Footsteps?

I bet hubby would be one proud and content daddy if his 3 angels were to follow him in his foot steps and take up a course in culinary arts, hotel management or pastry & baking in future. I am very sure he is secretly hoping that his 3 angels can take over his catering business one day. He would be more than willing to send them to a good culinary school or chef school in the United States to pursue a degree in culinary arts, pastry and baking, hospitality or restaurant management.  Well, if hubby can afford it and if the girls are willing, we can easily find a good culinary school from culinary-school-finder.com, a site with a long list of culinary schools and information on the schools.  This mummy is always planning her 3 angels’ career paths.  I wonder what choice of career my girls will eventually choose in future.

We Are Absorbing Our Temp Maid As Permanent Maid

After working for us for 2 weeks, my temp Indon maid’s performance is still good.  My maid agent met up with me yesterday and I have confirmed with him that I will be absorbing this maid as my permanent maid.  In total, we will have to pay a whopping RM9k, which comprises of agency fee (RM3,600), 6 months’ advance salary for the maid @ RM500 per month, levy, medical and RM800 per month for 2.5 months for hiring a temp maid!  My hubby’s jaw almost dropped when I told him he still has to pay an outstanding amount of close to RM6k to the agent. 

I was informed by my maid agent that the agency fee will further increase soon.  Hopefully my maid will continue to be good and will agree to extend her service with us for another 2 years  so that we can save on the agency fee in future.   I am planning to do away with a live-in maid when my 3rd child turns 4 yo.   Hiring a maid is incredibly costly now and most of the time, the quality of the maids supplied to us is really below expectations and acceptable standards.  Most of the capable and good maids are already creamed off by employers in other countries like Singapore, Hong Kong and Taiwan.  These maids are also paid handsomely in these countries.

My Daughters The Future Fashion Designers?

My 2 daughters are real vain pots, just like mummy. Though they are under 5 year old, they have already acquired a good sense of fashion in the way they dress up and in their choice of clothing. I won’t be surprised if they tell me that they want to go to some famous fashion schools in Los Angeles in future to pursue a  career in fashion design.  There are many well-known fashion schools in California, especially Hollywood with its influence on the film industry.  Frankly, I would not mind my daughters having a career in fashion design but I would really want them to go to a good fashion school in California and get a bachelor’s degree in fashion design.  Looks like mummy is daydreaming here again!
