New Year, New Ear....

Today is 01.01.10...
From today onwards, I have to get used to writing 10 instead of 09 or 2010 instead of 2009.
So what did we do today?
We slept through morning and I was the first one to wake up... 10.15am... *malu eh*
Then without much ado, I woke the 3 "bears" and off we went for our brunch...
(I post that later)

Someone got this as her New Year present ... guess who?

with a japanese doll, who else
but Fernie!

She has been "murmuring" in my ears on and off, ever since she got her PMR results... I only turned on a deaf ear... LOL.. hoping she will drop off the idea... but she was actually waiting for the right day and timing, that is her brothers are back together and a family outing today is the best time to do her purchasing....

Hope she will use this for another few years before she "murmurs" into my ears again...
My first day of New Year burnt my pocket ... handphone + outing = ...............
(ok, I better don't count, why spoil the first day of New Year, huh?)


  1. hello claire! here's wishing you and all at home, happy, healthy and prosperous days ahead! =)

  2. I wan go murmur into my dad's ear too... see if he can give me a new pc or laptop or a fully sponsored trip to Italy-so that I can buy the damn thing! Ahahaha...

  3. hahha...never mind ler, as a reward to her. congrats! :D happy new year auntie!

  4. many As? Must be flying colors that why can deserved such a great gift.. Well done mama..

    Happy New year to u..

  5. @ Little Lamb... her dotter got ALOT of As. LOL...I'll let Claire boast...I wun say how many As.

  6. Hi Reana, Happy New Year to you and all at home.
    Wishing you the very best of 2010.
    You stay young, stay beautiful and have a great new year. Lee.

    ps, some friends here got funny idea of welcoming the new year. I just learned Jack Daniels and half frozen durians at midnight don't get along well, ha ha.
    My head feels or hearing gongs, like a Thai Monastery, ha ha.

  7. hhhahahahhah ohhh to get present from you we only need to murmur in your ears ar? let me murmur too next time ahahahahahahahaha

  8. @ manglish.... eiii... now you're giving me ideas... lol...come, we murmur into her ears together-gether!

    psstt, pssst... Claire oh Claire... buy me some food and feeddddd meeeee... lol...I'll be good and let you pet my head...

  9. Wow!! A handphone as a NY gift?? I want too!!! But I prefer digital camera....hahaha!! Happy 2010!

  10. come shake hand with me, i also wake up at 10.30am!! hahaahhahahahhahha

    wow pink hp + pink japanese doll,nice! Fernie deserve it la, she got such a good result in her exam. :)

  11. We for the children. But as long as they're happy, we're happy too...

    I got up around 5 - 6, to cook chicken soup and mee sua and hard boiled eggs! Foochow tradition - New Year must eat! So good hor, this father/hubby!!! LOL!!!

  12. That's a neat idea to give a new year's gift! Do you just kinda' withhold one of the Christmas gifts for a few days later or do you actually purchase an additional gift for new years. Either way, neat idea that I might try to do for my babies!

  13. Psst..pssst..I am hungry for some CCF :p

    Happy New Year (^o^)
