Don't compare

Found this so meaningful, too meaningful not to share.

“生活的高度总会有差异,不要去和别人比高,适合自己的就是最好的高度。”

不用艳羡他人,不要输掉自己;
每个人都有不同的高度,你何必仰望别人的高度。
Look up don’t look down. Don’t belittle yourself.

Such a great quote to remind my friends, and also to myself.

Have a great weekend folks!

Fun in the kitchen

Parents in law were away for a week so the rest in the family had to makan sendiri throughout that week. 
We eat out most of the times (for the sake of convenience), but I did cooked some simple dishes some days, like chicken spaghetti......

Added in lots of ingredients!

I used Prego tomato sauce

Sprinkled Parmesan cheese on top and slurrp! Cooked this for my hubs, SIL and my parents as well


Saw a blogger friend Shan shared this the other day and I've decided to give it a try, it's banana pie actually. Click HERE to see the recipe.
Bought the frozen puff pastry and to be honest, I really love this frozen puff pastry! So convenient and so versatile! 


And since there're still leftover puff pastry, I've made this rose puff too!

Picture taken from FB

My ugly rose puff, haha xD Me no patience to roll them nicely like the one demonstrated, but looks doesn't matter, because they taste really good! ;)

Baked this corn layered caked, with santan. But it's a bit too sweet to me though.

Boiled red bean soup too, my all time favorite

Also boiled chicken herbs soup for the family the other day

Cooked Tomyam fried chicken (frozen type)

And simple fried rice

Topped with dark soy sauce roasted pork (by SIL)

And steamed fish

Well, it's always a blessing to have an elderly at home, and to have our parents to cook for us. At least I don't have to be so tired. 
To be honest, I was quite tired for the passed week, juggling the tasks like looking after my active Aden, prepared and cooked for him, watched the dogs, cooked for the family, laundry, house chores, watched my favorite HK dramas, surfing the net, and blogging. 
But I was happy I was able to do all that, cause I shed 0.5kg after that, haha xD

开箱| Miu Miu Vitello Shine Shopping Bag

我一直以来是完全没打算买缪缪包的,因为说真的我对包包没有很大兴趣(真的啦!),我比较爱买衣服,嘻嘻~
不过悄悄告诉你们,我倒很想拥有一个Dior包!只不过它实在太贵了。。。离我的budget太远了,所以唯有默默的希望老公中马票咯!(别再来这招了啦,听了都闷 xD)

Anyway, 买这个包主要是为了下个月的 trip ,还有就是以后出门可以 sekali 放我和Aden大大小小的东西。出 trip 拿 crossbody 包的确比较方便,肩膀也没那么酸痛。Then 做妈妈的都知道带/抱小孩出门拿 shoulder bag 会不方便,也很危险,所以呢一直很想买个 crossbody bag,只不过都没看到刚的罢了。
这个缪缪包是 shoulder bag 也是 crossbody bag,所以很符合我要的条件。

I always wanted a suitable and good quality crossbody bag, it's good and convenient especially when travelling oversea. Plus, since that I got Aden now, it's also much easier to carry a crossbody bag than the typical shoulder bag, I'd be 'hands-free' to carry him or hold him to walk.

Had been eyeing on this Miu Miu bag few weeks ago, just in time for my trip next month! And since it's our 10th year courtship anniversary next month, I'll treat this as my anniversary gift, haha xD
But don't ask me what I will get for hubs, I have no idea yet, LOL! (Actually we don't buy each other gifts anymore, since N years ago :p)

打开盒子心想怎么布袋的颜色跟我的包那么 match 啊?=)
我每次买包包都会把布袋收着。

主角登场咯!照片的颜色和真实的看起来可能会有点差,不过就是有点粉红色啦。这款式还有黑色不过黑色就太 common 了,所以最后选了这个 ^^
This is the bag! I don't know exactly what color should I name it, but it's slight pink in color.

除了包包本身我最喜欢的就是这个心型吊饰品!
I personally like this heart-shaped accessory the most! I think it makes the bag looks more elegant~

皮质很好很软,而我自己很喜欢那种皮质本身的味道,嗅上瘾了,哈哈!xD
And it's made from very soft and fine leather, with studded handles.

包包很大,长30cm,宽40cm,可以装得下一个 laptop pun.
The bag is big enough to put in a laptop, together with some other stuff, Aden's stuff and mine, for instance :p

里面也有个拉链处

Can carry as a shoulder bag....

可以做 shoulder bag。。

或者 crossbody bag
The long strap is adjustable to be treated as a crossbody bag too!


因为 timing 的关系我就当这个是老公送的‘早来的10周年拍拖纪念日’礼物。 其实真正的日期是下个月中啦不过不管啦,是 saja 要给个名份它罢了 xD

Anyway, 谢谢你老公!Muacks! <3
好,开箱文分享完毕!谢谢捧场!^0^
I love this new bag of mine and can't wait to use it already~

话外题:
这几天在 housekeep 着我的 bloglist,添加新的部落客,删除那些很久没更新或很久没来留言的朋友。如果你发现你的部落地址已被删除,很抱歉。

我个人觉得写部落除了是因为个人喜好之外,也是像交朋友一样,我们希望能遇到真心有诚意的部落朋友,所以才互相交换地址,互相留言。我知道有些可能是很忙所以没来我家 (我不是说那些潜水的),不过我有发现他们还是经常去别人家坐坐留言的。其实我之前还是很乖有时不时去留言的,不过后来发现都没用。。
所以,希望你们别介意,我就是那么直率的人 =)
至于那些经常 support 我的朋友们,为了感谢你们的支持,本小姐即将送些小礼物给你们~

(好嘛,好好的写开箱文嘛好咯干吗要弄到酱生气?:p)


On a side note, I am housekeeping my bloglist these few days, add in new bloggers' URL and delete off those who have been MIA for months, also those who don't come to leave comments for some times. I notice some of them don't come here but did comment at some other people's blogs. Sorry if you found your name and blog being deleted, I just think that blogging is like making friends, we want to be sincere and we hope to meet sincere friends too!
Apologies again, I am a straight forward person like that ;)
And to my regular commenters, stay tuned, I'll organize a giveaway soon! ^^

Happy weekend folks!

Anyway, 祝你们周末愉快咯!

Ethan's 2nd birthday party

Was invited to a friend Evelyn's son birthday party over the weekend. 

The birthday boy, Ethan. Time flies!! He is now 2 years old, still remember I went to his first birthday party last year......

Photo taken last year, Aden was only 2 months plus, and I was still in the midst of losing weight, haha xD


Anyway, party this time was fun cause everyone were attracted to this..........

Don't tell me you don't know what is this.... xD
Very nicely done minion cakes!! Taste good too!

And the host prepared so much to eat! Got snacks for the little ones also.

Aden behaved well that night, probably because he had grown up? LOL! He had fun playing with someone else toys

Aden and Evelyn

Friend, Nickson and his sons

My blur blur son ;) He is still that glutton, he ate so much that night, though he had already had his porridge at home

Birthday boy: Nah this is for you Aden!

Aden: Daddy see what I've got!

Aden and papa

Aden and mama

Both in orange, so coincident!

Lastly, photo taken with the host! Thanks Evelyn for inviting!


Though it was just a few hours event but we all had fun, Aden especially, running around and eat non stop. And he knocked off straight after his milk time =)
