Born To Be Short

A scream could be heard from my room.... Mother instinct...quickly got up and rushed inside...

haiyah...it was just a dragonfly ma...
what was there to scream?
but give me a cockroach, i will faint!!

After snapping a picture of this beautiful insect, I took a broom.. tried to reach sweep it away from the ceiling but couldnt... I was "too tall" ...darn... pulled up a stool to reach it... another darn!! Why am I so short one! My girl was laughing at one corner already by then... I said, "hey, laugh what, u and i, almost the same, OK?"

Eventually a chair has to be brought... the dragonfly was just waiting to be swept away.. and out it went to another corner of the ceiling outside my room... Peace at last!

  15. I am always aware of being 'tall'...talking about always in the field with a bunch of taller players..sometimes kena kasi ketawa lagi...=.=

  16. Being short has it's advantages! You don't have as far to bend down and will probably get less back problems. It is spiders I'm terrified of, and they are all coming in from the chilly weather now.

  17. you are such a loving mom. so sweet to come to the rescue and trying to be tall at the same time, haha.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Aiyor...dragon fly also scared. Cockroach also...nothing to be scared about. Just get Ridsect and spray... LOL!!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. P.S. Lizard...also can spray. But have to remove when dead - will become very smelly.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I usually just catch it with my fingers and let it out of the room.

    But if it is a cockroach, then roll up a magazine or a newspaper and slam to crash it! Hahaha!

    PS: Regarding your question, that cruise ship's pic was taken by me. I didn't go on a cruise not my cup of tea. ocean is a scary place.

  29. Ya, you just reminded me of my own suffering in silence, when i was in school (form five) i was the shortest ( i mean among the shortest) in the class,,friends laughed at me a lot of time. i got very envious of them, they got to go party, but they never invited me, they thought that i was up to their mark,, hahahahah..

    you know something, My Jovial is going through what i went through as well, he is the shortest in the class now, and i know how it feels like,therefore i have to boost his self confidence so much,,,, hahahah

    by the way i am 5'7" ....i think 2" short to Tom Cruise,, so i am Tom Kurus

  30. ling: u r not short la.. :)


    eugene: u r 5'7"? so u grew up later than the others.. yeah, yr son follows after u then.. yeah, some are slower than the others..

    ReplyDelete
  32. haha, i'm also the screaming type, and can't stand to be on the same floor or within 5 feet radius of cockroaches.. dragonfly i'm still ok, but NOT NOT NOT cockroaches or lizards... any of such that dare appear in my house will DIE (if hubs around)

    ReplyDelete

  36. I remembered I like to catch dragonfly during my childhood time. I will use a string to tie on its tail and fly it in the air and later pull it down, very cruel hor:-)

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
