Wooooooohooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!! I pass my driving test!! Thank GOD! Thank you for everyone who prayed for me!
Thank you thank you!
I can drive now! I have my G2 license now...need to practice more and later get my G license..
I have to go through another test..which is they call it high-way or freeway test!
What a relief! I did almost perfect..but the examiner said i didn't look often on my rear view mirror!
I remember that moment when i drove to the test area and park. The examiner, Linda her name..said
Linda: Gene, U passed! Buttttttttttt... i noticed that u didn't look at ur rear view mirror...u got lotsa marks deducted from there..esp ur observation. You have to always check your rear view mirror every 5 seconds when u r driving. Be careful on that..u need it for your next test!
If you continue like that you will definitely fail for the next test!
Me: Okie..i will! Thank you soo much!
I tell ya..that moment i almost wanna cry man... what a relief..i knew i made mistake..but i was hoping that i will pass... Seriously, what a blessing from GOD..i got a nice examiner..even though she is strict..
I pass! I pass...heehhe.
I will drive to Mt. Albion later to hand in my Psychology exam..(which i am sooo overdue now)

After reading Mamabok's entry on stayed at home moms, it reminded me of what i always have to go through with Ryan daily.
Some people (not all, some only, esp. those ego type of man) thought we stayed at home mom or women, got nothing to do..and our jobs are easy..just have to look after the kids and house chores.
Well, I always felt torn apart as in whether I should teach Ryan more stuff, play with him or should I finish my house chores?
I always have this problem and i ended up spending time with Ryan.
The worst part is, I am a neat freak..and i want things get done. If for example, my dishes still on the sink, it will haunt me...and constantly remind me all the time ..that i haven't do my dishes yet.
Ryan is very demanding as in he wants attention all the time..and he is very active.
He wants to go out ride his bicycle..like what Mamabok said about Chloe in her entry.
At times, I felt very overwhelming!
Butttttt hor..i also do salute those working mom! Is not easy for them as well. They have to balance both the working world and home at the same time.
Therefore i just wanna say..is not easy to be WOMEN!
We are made TOUGH!
SO...salute we WOMEN!
We bought Ryan a fake cell phone which it can be flipped...with digital camera thingy.
Ryan loves to imitate us talking on the phone..so every day he will pretend talking on his cell phone.
This morning, he made a 'phone call" to i dunno who...and the conversation goes like this :
Ryan: pressing the button to make a phone call...
Me: Nei call peen kor ar? (Who are u calling?)
Ryan: Shhhh! (shoosh me asking me to be quiet..and making his hand gesture to ask me to wait for him to finish his conversation)
Me: LOL! wah...nei kor peen kor ar..mommy em hor yue teng ar? (who are u calling? Why mommy cannot listen ar?)
Ryan: Talking on his phone saying...err...em hai ar...meh yer? mou ar? yum nen nen lor ( err...no ar ..what is it? nothing? drink milk lor )
Geeze..he really talk like an adult! I really sometimes beh tahan him man!

Worst part was i have driving lesson. Ai yo..i tell ya... last week i was okie one..i have the confident to control the car and everything..but today...really "hak chai" man...
Even the traffic is not helping at all..

Ryan was having his afternoon nap yesterday. So i thought i took his sleeping beauty pic.
That t-shirt he was wearing was his favorite. That top was supposed to be his 12 months old baby top.. he is still wearing it...
Call us al cheapo...or what..but not all our fault..he loves that t-shirt too.. ;)
We went to Zoo on Saturday as we were leaving the Zoo, we stop by the washroom b4 we start an hour journey back home. I went to the washroom first, then followed by Kit bringing Ryan and then came out and let me carry Ryan and Kit went for his turn.
As we were waiting for Kit to come out..this happened:
Me: You had fun Ryan?
Ryan : Ya.. (nodding head as well)
Me: You happy happy?
Ryan : Ya.. (nodding head and smiling as well)
Ryan : I lovvv you.. (hugging me with a smiling face)
Me of course melted and forgot how tired i was at that moment! :)

2)Bbq chicken wings and ribs
3)Batter shrimps or prawns
4)Japanese style grill fish
5)Stir Fry brocolli
Answer will be review soon :)
Well, last winter i blog about we taking out the wall paper on our living room and dining room.
PIL helped us to paint the undercoat on last Friday. These is how it looks like.
So much better and i can see the brightness in the house :) We still need to paint the color that we want :)
Yesterday was Victoria Day in Canada and every stores are closed. No where to go and guess what i did?
I learned from Canadian people that when Victoria day comes.. that means u can start planting your plants or flowers without worrying any frost or cold temperature.
I bought grape tomatoes and red chili. I planted beside our 3 tall "gei chi" or wolfberry fruit tree.
As for that 3 blue bin thingy, the one the left are chives, the centre one are green onion and the one on the right are mints
I took some pictures of my flowers in my garden and u can see yesterday was also a laundry day...u can see my clothes on the line.
Typical holiday...where u stayed home and do house chores...
WHere is kit? Watching tv and playing with Ryan...heheeh that's what he did in order to help me :)

We went to Toronto Zoo on Saturday and it was Ryan and my first time there. We reach the zoo at 9.30 am and it was like an hour drive from Hamilton. That day was perfect, the weather was not hot and cold..just the rite temperature for us :)
The Zoo is huge and we did not finished viewing every animals there. I missed the Americas, Eurasia, Australian sections. Will go next time.
Kit managed to collect enough air miles points to exchange for 4 tickets..and Ryan is free for the admission. How great is that!
Our first small vacation or outing for 2007 :)
Cheap outing for poor people like us ..hehehehe
Overall, the trip was splendid..except that i was dead tired man!
Imagine this big momma...walking up the steep hills...omigosh... it was unbelievable ..i was surprised that i made it..hahahaha...
The outfit i was wearing on that day..was the Mother's Day gift from lovely hubby!
I seriously need to loose weight...i know i will..when i starts school..coz i will be walking around the campus and taking buses :)

What a blessing from GOD. You guys would not believe what happened to me yesterday...hahahaha..
Yesterday morning i brought Ryan to downtown Hamilton to visit my ex-boss and of course for a bus ride as well.
Ryan loves the bus ride and of course lunch at McDonald. He loves the new Chicken Snack Wrap.
It was nice to see all my ex-colleagues ..they were so surprise to see me :) The juicy part was.. Lillian (my ex-boss) told me that they are going to Rod Stewart concert tonight (yesterday nite) ...and was asking me whether i could join them or not..they have one extra ticket.
So i was like cool! a concert! i never been to a concert b4...and is free.
What a blessing i tell ya..
I came back drop off Ryan home and rest abit..called Kit and told him that i am going to Rod Stewart's concert! hahhaha
Can see my MIL's face..kekekekeke...it was like cloudy like wanna have rain storm or soemthing..but i dun care! I deserve my break man!
I got changed and took the bus down again to meet up Lilian and Anita. We had dinner at My Thai restaurant..i ordered dried Curry beef with string beans...i never get the chance to eat beef at all..due to in laws are Buddhist..
so..whenever i had a chance..i will order beef :)
Then we had coffee at Tim Hortons...waited till 8 pm for the concert.
IT was awesome..i had a great time..
That few hours...i was totally myself..forgetting everything at home..
I remembered i thank GOD in the middle of the concert..for giving me this chance!
I needed it soo badly ...it was totally refreshing for me!
so..PIL's presence is not totally all cons after all..kekekke ;)

Ryan's new chinese vocabulary = Chan Hai ar
Yesterday, he spill his milk and i didn't notice it until Ryan said the following:
Ryan: Nei dai... chan hai ar..yai yai ar..yucky-yucky lor (u see...so notty..all dirty already)
Me: Hai lor... chee yau hou lor ( yes..u knew and why u still do it)
** He is learning from PIL alot of those sayings...mil loves to talk to him like that..so therefore, he is talking like an adult here.
Normally he will sort of say what i am going to say to him...
isn't he funny or what..
Posted by Gene Lim at 3:10 PM
PIL are home today... not working for few days...so it will be pro and cons for me.
As for the pro part..i can catch up with my high school diploma assignments..yea..i am really way behind it..still on Psychology...doing the exam thing.
The cons side will be..they are around!
Well, that's life i guess..i can't have everything. I can finish my school work..but by the time i finish my school work, i think i will have more housework to do.
House will definitely more messy and dirty!
Is already mid May, i am counting the days...4 more months till i start school!
Can't wait.. i can look for part time job at school..doing something related to my field. I can't wait to finish school to be exact! hahahah..look how greedy i am..
I love to be around people.. if i have the chance to work in ER..i will be the most happiest nurse in the world!!
BUt of course i have to score good score in order to get to that position...
Pray hard and i will try my best! :)

My mother's day celebration was pretty good. Must be wondering how would my wonderful MIL share this day with me huh? heheheh
Kit is very smart handling this..well, i suggest that bringing her for dinner..which we did on Friday because normally PIL will go to Mississauga (her daughter's place)on weekends.
..I will have Sunday all to myself..wohooo.. :)
Well, this morning, we went shopping and Kit bought me 2 blouses and one jean Capri..it was on sale at Zellers.
Oh gosh, i haven't been shopping for clothing for years!!! So is was very nice of Kit to do that..by knowing we have to save some money for my schooling and just in case Ryan's day care fee.
So, overall it was great! simple and nice :)
Oh yea..Kit also bought a watch for his mom... so not bad at all huh :)
Actually i don't mind him doing that for his mom, he Should!
I even ask him to give her a hug ..n guess what he said? we are not brought up like that..it will be weird...u english educated ppl can do that..but not us.
oh well, i would give her hug..but i know she will be surprised and dunno what she will be thinking again...
anyway, dun wanna spoil my day :)
I hope every mothers out there having a great time :)
God Bless u all great Mothers !

My special wishes to Mamabok and Grace on this coming beautiful and meaningful mother's day!
Lucky Chloe and Bee to have you 2 as their mommy!
Happy Mother's day Girlfriends and God Bless this wonderful day!
To all mothers and future mothers out there ....
HAPPY MOTHER's DAY!
Posted by Gene Lim at 11:31 PM
Mother's day is approaching... I am thinking of 3 very special ppl on this day.
1) My wonderful mother
2) Nellie- my ex-neighbor
3) My stepmother
My mother has passed away for 15 years due to cancer. I didn't get to spend a lot of time with my mother or share those girly stuff with her coz when she passed away that time, i was only 14 years old.
She was a wonderful person...very sweet, patient, humble and kind hearted person.
She loved to laugh out loud..that makes her unique from other women. Easily humored.
I miss her a lot..I just wish that Ryan gets to know her.. I know deep down she will go crazy over Ryan.
Mommy, I love you..i still do.. Thank you for bringing me up...i know God Loves u more than i do..that's why U r up there with HIM forever.
I cherished all the good times that we had together and YOU are always my World Bestest Mother!
Happy Mother's Day, Mommy!
I LOVE YOU and GOD BLESS YOUR SOUL!
A wonderful, sweet, helpful, humble, kind hearted lady. She is my ex-neighbor and she has helped me a lot when my MIL give me troubles.
She is like a mother to me in Canada.
She is still..
I love her...
I thank GOD for letting me have her in my life...
I love you and Happy Mother's Day, Nellie
She is my dad's gf who lives here in Canada. My relationship with her wasn't that good at first.
With God's blessing, our relationship grew better and better.
I know she couldn't replace my mom's place but she has a special place in my heart.
I appreciate for all the things she has done for me when i first came here and when my mil give me troubles.
She really treats me like her daughter. I appreciate her love for me.
I love her too.
HAPPY Mother's day, aunty..and God bless you!
Posted by Gene Lim at 3:16 PM
Thank you Mamabok and all others who are giving me the supports and encouragements.
I appreciate and very touched!
I am okie... i just need to see things more positive i guess even though things and environment at home aren't so positive at all.
I can't change the people who is trying to bring me down...but i can try to save myself by avoiding her.
I praying hard for things to change...for GOD to make her realize that i am not a threat to her.
That's what she is thinking...and trying to annoyed me by doing childish things.
I am afraid she will ended like those old crazy woman..insecure..very insecure.
Mamabok, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you for understanding my situation,supporting and encouragement.
Grace, I thank you for your support, prayers, and encouragement.
To all moms out there who pray for me.. I thank you all...Bless you all kind hearted ppl!
