Honour Mi, Honur U

BRINGING UP KIDS is not as an easy task when a 'mama' is not at her best mood and the 'kid' is not as her best look for that day. Stress...stressing...stressed....

From my 20 years of 'mama-ing', I have learn plenty but cannot remember most of them except those happening in recent days and months. Lately I asked my son what makes a child honour his/her parents....

He replied in a solemn serious tone these words... THE parent must first respect his child first, THE parent must also learn how to listen to the voice of the younger generation, THE parent must communicate in a nice subtle way, like I am talking to my own friends and colleagues and not one tone higher with the child....in other words, treat a child like equals to parents... ie ME = KIDS.

He further stressed that communication is important too, and in doing so, I, ME, must invest quantity time with them kids to achieve a bonus in quality time later on....

So much for honour....

  4. halo mama...
    baba here also don't have good recipe to tackle younger ones at different ages wor...
    when they were small, i seldom punish, just let them have fun as kids, though drawing lines everywhere to keep them on the right track. I keep an open mind similar to your playing badminton, do the things within those lines...
    now that they grown up, wanting to know whether they are still playing within the lines is like they are playing golf, the field is much larger....hoping they are professional enough to return an honourable score....
    yes, we can be referee, yet we ourselves sometimes are not exactly sure of how a particular situation must be handled...or may we learn together, even should we let them teach us.....it's a sweet life.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
