Whoohooo...long weekend for us last weekend. It was fun and tiring for us. It all started last Friday where Kit's auntie (MIL's sister) from Malaysia came for visit. Actually, his aunt's eldest son is in Maryland, US working. So, they kinda just drop by Hamilton for visit.
Of course, everyone is wondering whether this aunty is good or not... hmmmm nahhhhhhhh...it runs in the family eh..hehehe.. actually she is even worst than my MIL. hahaha..YUP no kidding!
She is the almighty MENTOR for my MIL. hahahah
What happenend on Friday was the relatives came and stayed over my MIL's place. So as usual i had to work till 8 pm that day but i was asked to go back early that day due to no business that nite. I was supposed to call Kit when i finished work to confirm whether i should go over to MIL's place of just go home straight. When i called around 6.50pm, i called mil's home, no one answer the phone. Aiks.. okieeeee... well, they were supposed to go to the bank to deal something, so i thought they haven't come back from bank. I was like dunno what to do, should i go back or should i walk to my mil's place and wait for them at Nellie's place. (Nellie is my ex-neighbour)
One part of me telling me to go home so that i can enjjoy my peace and freedom and the other part of myself asking to go over to MIL's place because if i didn't go...later the relatives will give faces to Kit ( like i no give "face" to them).
SO i ended up spending time with Nellie at her house.. while waiting for Kit to come back.
I was at Nellie's place for 20 mins and I saw a car (american car) parking outside MIL's house.
Then i saw kit's auntie.
U see, I met her before when i first time went to KL to meet kit's parents. But what i got was just cold treatment from them.
They dun like me as in i am different from them. (I do not speak Mandarin, and i am fat)
Anyway, baack to the story, so i was going to ask them to go over to Nellie's place to rest and wait for my mil to come back from bank...but b4 i can do that..my fil opened the door and kit came out surprised to see me there.
Oh well, all i did was say hi to them and went in back to Nellie's place continue chatting..coz i do not want to spoil their mood coz i thought they might have lotsa things to catch up. ANd they probably won't want to see me..seeing me will be the last thing in their mind. :)
So, kit had to go order pizza for dinner and i didn't know that till i went back to mil's house. When i went in, i say hi to everyone.. and kit's aunt (let's call her MENTOR) telling me how to call them in chinese.
Darnnnnn! she was and is a TOTAL CONTROL FREAK!
telling me i am supposed to call her husband "yee cheong" (cantonese term for uncle) and how i addressed her frens.
well, there is a couple, mentor's friend following them here...because they do not know english, so the couple fren can help out.
Then mil came down for upstairs, then i asked her where is kit..she told me Kit went to buy pizza and Ryan is sleeping upstairs.
So without wasting anytime i went upstairs to check on Ryan...n Mentor followed me behind.
She just talked non-stop...woke Ryan up. Ryan was crancky..and guess whaT? she wanted to carry him..
sighhhhhh..HELOOO??!!! u r totally stranger to Ryan..n first tiime seeing him..Ryan doesn't want anybody to go near hiim..except me or kit.
WHen RYan rejected her... all she said..why u dun want me to carry, so shy huh....
then tell me that i should bring ryan out..see lotsa ppl..so that hewont be shy..
i was like..helloooooo?! who are u? i just met u first few mins..n u tell me what to do?
first of all, ryan is not shy . second of all, u r stranger!!
Ryan is just cranky coz she woke him up!
this is not the things she did...got more jjuicy one came ...i was so fucking pissed off.. (oppsie..mind my language) oh well, i was really mad that time when after i tried to calm ryan down..n wanted to make some formula for him to drink...she came up to me and asking me whether i know to make the formula or not?!!
Can u guys believe this????? WHAT on earth has crossed her mind by asking me that silly question?
if i did not know how to make formmula...who has been taking care of RYAN ALL THIS WHILE???!!
can plss anyone tell me what the heck with this lady!?
i really had enough with her...after that..asking me to do this...by wiping ryan's mouth while ryan was enjoying his pizza...
Come on!!! the kid won't get to enjoy the fun of eating by himself..if we kept wiping his mouth and hand...
damnnnnnnnnnnnnn that ole lady!!!
Seriously i felt like strangle her! hahahahhaha
Okie..that was friday...then came saturday... we were supposed to go NIAGARA FALLS with them.
dare enough my mil asking to take off day that day for her mentor enjoyment?!@
who is the one don't like who first?
whhy should i take off days for her?
no way..OF COURSE I did not take off days..i can only compromise by following them..n get off early that day!
the least i can do...don't say that i didn't give face... coz i don't really enjoy the trip at all..coz there was constant nagging on me how to take care of RYAN. WHAT THE HELL?!
friday and saturday were hell for me.
Then came sunday..phewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww finally we dun have to join them...Kit and i got to spend time together cleaning up our backyard and prune all the dead leaves and branches.
then around nooon time, mil called. asking wanna come over and look at the house.
oh well, had no choice to say okie...
but of coz i have my strategy...hehehehe..befroe she hang up..i told her..we had to go grocery shopping later and i worked around 4.30 pm..
least i let her know we were busy that day. no time to entertain eh..!
so came all the gang... the hypocrate ( sorrie dunno the spelling) checking out our house... u can see the look on her face..
condemn our garden too big..too much work to do.... where got time..bla bla bla..
i am guesing she is jealous that Kit has a wife and son and own a house..whereas his son has to rent room, no gf. BLUEWWWWWK
well, my guess could be true because all my mil sisters , they live in comparison and compete with each other one.
who knows what is in her mind!
BUT who carese.. i like my house and i am proud of it!
u dun like..is ur problems.. sucker!!
phewwwwwwwwwwwww there u goooooo..i felt much better...has been inside me for days!!
hhhahaha..i got to let it out..thank GOD they left already! hahahahah
n monday was holiday for us.. I had great time with Kit and Ryan at home. :)

Aisey mannn... it's been crazy for mua last weekend. I got my butt whooped on Sunday where I have to work from 1pm till 7.30pm sitting down there takings phone calls orders (eeeweeeeeek) when i think of it..i just felt TIRED!
i dunnno why my scheduler scheduled me over time that day..usually i only work from 4-7 pm. :)
ANyway, as u guys see, we already got our Satelite! whoohoooooooooo! more movies, i got to watch Charmed, Oprah, Will&Grace, Survivor,Apprentice, Ellen deGeneres, and many more...hahaha..
Sadly, i didn't get to enjoy during the weekend. U see , the cable guy came around noon time.. n by the time he finished fixing the satelite.. it was about 2 pm. Then we have to go do our grocerries shopping..and by the time we got back..i had to get ready for work!
Life sucks when u have to work on weekends.
It was longggggggg nite for that nite..furthermore it was pouring rain when i came from work. Sigh..by the time i got back..it was already 9.30 pm..all the good shows finito liao..
Sunday came... gotta work early that day..suckiest day for me... dead boring..and my brain couldn't function very well that too.
I was soo glad when i reached home around 7.45 pm. hahahaha..having the thought that the next day i don't have to go to work..was like speechless for me..kekeke.
I know some ppl dun like monday..coz they have to go back to work on that day...but for muaaaaaaa...whooooooooohooooooooooo..dancing up n down for me!
I thot i can enjoy my monday but unfortunately my allergies came back that day..was lying on the bed almost the whole afternoon.
It was soo ironic ...coz before the Satelite.. i was soo free and bored n kept wishing how nice rite now i get the satelite.
but when i got it..i dun even have the time and energy or health to enjoy it :(!
I didn't get to online for 3 days..yup (monday-wednesday) ... sad..sadddd..sadddd...

yeaaa...eventhough i am sick..i have the urge to clean the whole house...hehehe...Last evening, as Kit came back from work.. he asked me to take care of Ryan for awhile as he wanted to wash his car..
soooo..i took Ryan out and put him in his stroller and stroll him out around the house while Kit washed his car.
Ryan enjoyed the ride and scenery.. and it was nice and warm yesterday. As for me, I didn't feel good at all..coz i felt like cleaning the bathroom (scrub the bathtub, clean the toilet bowl, wash the sink and clean the mirror) since morning. I can't do it during the day time..coz i do not want Ryan to smell the chemical stuff i used to clean the bathroom..plus cleaning with Ryan around? Is impossible to do kinda thing!
Soo, i was waiting patiently for Kit to finish..so that i can start my engine to clean... hmmm our friend didn't finished it till abt 6.30 pm..Ryan was hungry and i was tired of waiting too..so i went into the house and fed Ryan first..and Kit came in n asked me..sssoooooo? what u want to do now?
Then i said..why not we have dinner first..then later i wanna clean upstairs as well the bathroom.
So, he said okie..he made dinner for me... Ohh..not fancy dinner of course..something fast and easyy la..
he made Kalbassa (turkey meat) sandwhich and vegetable soup.
There we go..after dinner...everyone was full..and this poor aunty..have to start working liao..
I have to wash all dishes..clean the counter top (when men cook? is always messy around the kitchen counter top)
Pack kit's lunch andd up i went..sweeping every room upstairs..even the bathroom and staircase. Mop the bathroom floor and staircase.
After finished mopping..it was 9 pm already! Dead tired!!
Still have to scrub the bathtub and toilet bowl...sink and clean mirrorr..
so no hessistation... i continue working... scrub, scrub,scrub, wash, wash, wash, clean, clean,
tadaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.....i was done! ..almost 10 pm..
phewwwwwwwwwwww what a work out eh...
heheheh... least now i fully satisfied..that my bathroom is squeaky clean. :)
Today, laundry day...have to wash Kit's working pants and t-shirt! tadaaaaaaa...loads of laundry to do..n sweep and mop the sun room and kitchen.
Besides all the exercising, this aunty still have to play with the little one...and cook for 2 babies to eat..
Here i am...online, writing this blog...with all my chores done, littleo ne sleeping..and peaceful moment for me to enjoy!
I wonder sometimes does Stay At Home Mom's job tougher than those women working outside?
I dunno, u see women outside works 8-10 hours a day.. roughly, and stress as well with their work loads..
and stay at home mom works ..hmm let me see my time..err *counting hours* 7.30 am till 10 pm,
of course we do have break in between when baby is sleep..buttttttt..when baby is sleeping..we still have house chores to finish?
so does it consider as break??
and how much is our salary per year???
hehehehehehe...but satisfaction = 100%

WHooooooo hoooooo..yeahhhh..can saveee more now...of coz rite away we say YES! hehehe...Actually we plan to buy one in summer...(coz saving money now maa) hehehe..but now..good news..we dun have to buy sofa...so can buy somethingelse. :)
