最近小不点很会撒娇， 有时真得受不了她！ Lyon very manja nowadays, partly due to our fault too. When Wien snatch her toys or whatever in her hands, she’ll scream or yell, then we will tend to scold Wien for her bad behavior towards Mei Mei. After few times, she knows we side for her and she took advantage on this. She will complaint for small tiny thing using her good sentences! Yup, she can speak well now, sometimes we surprise on her speech development too! ** When both of them playing together, if Wien suddenly snatch her belonging, she will go to Ma Ma and complaint: - 阿姐欺负阿妹！阿姐打阿妹！( Ah Jie bully Ah Mei! Ah Jie beat Ah Mei!) But poor Ah Jie never beat her wor!….*sigh* ** When she draws on the floor or table…. Wien : 阿妹，不可以画地上。(Ah Mei, cannot draw on the floor…) Lyon : …start crying and run to me or Ma ma …阿姐骂我！阿姐骂我！(Ah Jie scold me, Ah Jie scold me!) ** After drinking water, she split out some water on the mattress… Papa : 阿妹，不可以酱哈！(Ah Mei, cannot do that har!)…slightly raise up his voice… Lyon : …start crying and run to me or Ma ma …爸爸骂我！爸爸骂我！(Papa scold me, Papa scold me!) ** Feeding time, she keep walking here and there… Mummy : 妹，快点过来吃饭！(Mei, faster come over, finish your meal)…slightly raise up my voice.. Lyon : …start crying too…妈咪骂阿妹! (Mummy scold Ah Mei!) ** Terrible part is sometimes she will complain someone (either Ah Jie or papa) beat her when they talk to her with slightly high tone, though no one beat her. Lyon : ...she cry and come to me... Mummy : 为什麽哭？(why cry ah?) Lyon : 阿姐打我! (Ah Jie beat me!) Mummy : 是么？打你哪里呢？(Really? where she beat you?) Lyon : 这里。(Here)...point to her stomach... Mummy : ....pretend urut her and tell her Jie Jie never beat her, cannot tell lie ya.... Lyon : ..nodded her head... ....see, how manja she is...*sigh*

Wien having fever now, today is the 4th day. Other than fever, she also having diarrhoea, stomach ache and vomiting. With fever alone, already make me worry sick, further now she is vomiting too! Her sickness exactly same as Twinsmom's Belles. Both Belles got the sickness since 16/06/06, but my girl got it since 20/06/06, looks like the germ had been spread down to my place...LOL 20/06/06 Wake up in the morning, found she is having fever. Thought is normal fever, so just feed her paracethamol before I left to work. Tell MIL to monitor her fever, if still not down, continue to feed her the medicine after 4 hour. She still can play and running here and there the whole day. At night, she start vomiting and having diarrhoea. Vomit and diarrhoea few times during midnight. 21/06/06 Morning brought her to see dr. After medicine, she seem ok; no loost stool, no fever, so MIL did not continue feeding her. Been telling her many times the medicine must continue to consume at least for 2-3 days, cannot stop. But she not follow my word, as she thought taking those medicine will cause her sleepy the whole day!!! I always wish I could be SAHM whenever my girls are sick, so that I can monitor closely by myself. *sigh* I quickly feed her medicine after knowing she did not take it for afternoon session. Sleepless night for papa and mummy. She sleep with MIL before this, but if she is sick, I will get her to sleep with me. Other wise I dont think I can sleep well too! 22/06/06 Still having fever, stomach ache, loose stool vomitting and no appetite to eat. Keep reminding MIL to feed her medicine on time, cannot skip. At night high fever again, another sleepless night for papa and mummy. 23/06/06 This morning fever at 38.6 c. See doctor again. He gave suppository to bring down the fever. Monitor closely and feed her medicine on time too. Pray hard she will getting better by today! Still don't know what cause her sickness....*sigh*...but at least we know it is not dengue!

....or just fried like that with a little bit of oyster sauce; But I don't like to eat this way(dont know the reason too), although is simple! hehehe....FIL like this way, proof that he is not a fussy eater like me!
This is plain fried (清炒）style.
Later one of my friend taught me deep fried it with KFC powder (or any other brand that suit your taste); and the taste very nice! YUmmy yUmmy!
This is deep fried style.
If you never try before, perhaps u can give this a try. Just coated with the powder and deep fried! You can also coated with egg first before coated with the powder; just like the way we deep friend chicken. Happy trying!
p/s: anyone can share with me, is there any other cooking style for this mushroom?

June 01, 2006. Our office staffs start wearing T-shirt as uniform, including the bosses; to show the uniformity. The tee can match with either pants or skirt, no jean is allow. Lucky the tee's color is white and blue, which can easily match. All of us can get 3 white and 2 blue, so no need to worry have to wash it daily! I only did the washing for my work wear during weekend.
The production workers been wearing uniform since this factory start their operation, guess is 15 years back. Why now only implementing to us? The idea comes from the boss himself. After his business trip to oversea, visited many customer’s workplace, he noticed all of them were wearing uniform, including top management. So he brought back the idea and implement
enforce it to us.
Many staff welcomes the idea as they claim no need to headache what to wear the next day. But myself not really like it, everyday wear the same, very bored man! Further how am I going to settle my wardrobe‘s clothing? Ermmm…I have a lot of them hanging in the wardrobe. Frankly I can wear them for more than 1 month without worry what to wear the next day! : P….don’t forget we women like to shop for dress during sale ya! …and my hubby likes to nag me too if he saw me grab one or two cloth during our window shopping! …hahaha, who can resist sale thingy??
Look like it’s time for me to clear the clothing in my room! sob sob....

Lyon becomes selfish nowadays. Things belong to her; hardly share with her jie jie. Naughty Wien sometimes like to play a fool with her pulak! #1 Lyon has a sippy cup, usually will fill up water for her. Sometimes jie jie lazy to take her cup and pour water, she just takes the sippy cup and drink. Lyon saw it, she will keep yelling to us… Lyon : 阿妹的！阿妹的! (It's mine! It's mine ) ....her hand keep pointing to jie jie... Wien : ignore her yelling, keep sipping the water…...until we stop her! When she stop drinking only Lyon stop yelling! *sigh* #2 Told by MIL… One day during nap time, after give them a wipe; change them to a new set of cloth. Naughty Wien wear Lyon’s pant, don’t why she act like that, although the pants look so small for her! Again spotted by Lyon, she keep yelling to Ma Ma… Lyon : 阿妹的！阿妹的! (her hand keep pointing to jie jie) Wien : pretend nothing, just lie down on mattress.... Lyon : 阿妹的！阿妹的! (keep repeating the same and go nearer to jie jie) Wien : still ignore her…. Lyon : …cannot tahan anymore, she walk further to jie jie, both hands try to pull down the pant!! Wien : wei wei…now jie jie's turn to yell…. No choice, jie jie just let mei mei pull the pant, later she go and look for her own pant. After that only Lyon lie down on mattress and sleep! *sigh* Not only these, she also not allow jie jie to use her spoon, plate, potty etc etc....whatever belong to her is hers, no one can use! But funny thing is she allow mummy or Ma Ma to use her stuff! (sometimes we pretend want to use, surprisingly she allow us! Another naughty girl!!)

Our little farmers plant another batch of vegetable, this time is 菜心 ( sawi in Malay ). The leaf so greenish and big, credit must goes to their virgin urine again....hahaha… Next, what to plant ? Cherry tomato maybe. Last time we use to plant cherry tomato, I still remember Wien like to pick from the tree and just eat like that. Although no pesticide, but still have to make sure she wash it before eating it. Now with addition of Lyon, I am sure both of them will fight to pick from the tree and eat!

One day, TNB man (the one who take meter reading for eletricity usage) come to our house. He was standing outside the door taking meter reading. Our outside gate was not locked at that time, usually just closed like that, although there is a padlock there. Wien saw him, she wants to get the slip from him, so she quickly look for door key and want to go out and take from him. The guy saw she open the door, so he come forward to her, want to pass the slip to her. Lyon saw him come near to door, seem want to enter the house, she start crying! She quickly run to kitchen to look for Ma Ma, yelling : Uncle, uncle!...that's her reaction when see any stranger come to our house! Of couse Ma Ma heard Lyon is crying since she yell so loud, so she come to front to check on her. Then only she realised the TNB man was standing outside the door, and Wien was trying to open the padlock. She stopped Wien from opening the door and just get the slip from him. When the man left, Ma Ma lecture and scold Wien, for opening gate to stranger. But she claimed that : he is not stranger, he come to give us the slip!...hai, she just thought he is same as postman and rubbish man! *shake head* Lucky Lyon is the type who scare of stranger, she'll either cry or yell loudly when see someone she don't know. So that we can get first alert that someone is coming to our house. Otherwise, one day both of them might be kidnapped by the stranger without our knowledge! Who know?

When I am in good mood, I will think of something to sew. Yeah, I'll only sew during good mood! Then only the end product will look more nicer and prettier as I sew with love and my heart. Since Lyon doesn't has any blanket, so decided to make one small quilt for her. She only has security blanket （被被）but that cannot cover her body; another reason why I did not get her one blanket is, she use to kick off any blanket during sleep time, even I had wake up few times and cover for her but her sensitive hands and legs will just kick it off from her body! *sigh* But I still decide to make one for her! When the quilt is done, I show to her. She told me : 被被，被被 (It's blanket) but later she said : 不要！不要！(don't want, don't want! ) . Immediately when Wien heard her mei mei said don't want the blanket, she quickly come and tell me to give her that quilt. But I told her this is for Lyon, later when mummy is free, mummy surely will sew for her too! Lucky she said she can wait. Ok, few nights I try to cover this quilt on Lyon during bed time but she just kick it off as usual! Wien knew Lyon doesn't use it so she grab it from her, now the quilt belong to Wien... Wien also will kick off blanket during sleep, same as Lyon! Opps, I should say Lyon just alike her jie jie, like to kick blanket! Wonder other kids are the same too! In blogsphere I found a blogger very good in sewing quilt, she even took up a class just to learn sewing! I wish I could be like her too! You can find her good artwork of quilt from here and here.

This morning I had Tambun tau sa piah as breakfast, from Him Heang some more! I bet many of you know where is the origin! It was from my GM who just back from his hometown (Penang) after whole week there. When he gone back for holiday, he will bought us this biscuit as 手信 (souvenirs).
I ever went to this Him Heang shop many years back, guess is 2001 ( I was pregnant with Wien @ 7 weeks then). But this shop doesn't give me a very good impression, I can say very dissappointed over their attitute towards customers. Funny thing is, according to my Penang's friends, still many customers flooded the shop during weekend. Some even dun mind to line up sooooooo long just to wait for the biscuit! *shake head*
Ok, let's tell my story now.....
Year 2001, hubby and I plan to drive to Penang for holiday during National Day. Everything was well planned, then only I realised I was pregnant. At once, I plan to cancel this trip as I worry this and that. But end up still go ahead with the plan. Hubby make few stops during the journey, so that I can feel more relax instead of just sitting in the car. Before we go, we already informed our Penang friends that we want buy few boxes of Tambun biscuit, so he booked advance for us, then we can just collect from the shop on our way back.
When come to our last day in Penang, our friend very kind, he drove us to the shop to collect biscuit. Reached there, we already saw there is a long queue there. Many had queue up till outside the shop's gate! Can u imagine that? My friend told us if no make any booking then we have to queue like them. But my hubby said if have to queue so long, he rather go to other shop and buy, although other shop's biscuit may not as good as this shop.
We proceed to counter to check our booking but the counter couldn't find the booking under my friend's name, and tell us come again 3 days later!!! At first we thought we heard wrongly! I said if 3 days, then better cancel it lor, who want to come 3 days later?? But my kind friend keep asking
begging them to check properly, tell them who he make the booking from, but the counter just couldn't find it. Then the counter people told us unfriendly : or you just queue up lor, I cannot help u! My hubby was not happy with the way they talked. He told our friend, let's forget about it and we not keen on the biscuit anymore. But our friend being kind enough, still keep asking them check once again, tell them XXX had taken his order. The counter must be cannot stand our friend's long winded skill, they called up XXX ( he was on leave that day), lucky that XXX can recall the booking, then only the counter allow us to take away our 6 boxes of tau sa piah! We spent 45 min there just to take our biscuit that had been booked 2 weeks in advance! Frankly, when we make the payment, we pay with very unwillingly, so "heart pain" towards their attitute.
Now the shop still famous with their tau sa piah, still many tourist "pong chan" them, sad case! Come on lar, i can see many place in Penang selling tau sa piah too, with different brand. I ever tried one of them, found the taste not bad too!
So whenever I ate Him Heong tau sa piah, I will think of this case and I still can recall very well that day incidents!

Some times ago Papa agreed to bring Wien go to beach to "catch" crabs. Finally we went on last Saturday. Wien very excited when mummy confirmed to bring her there as most of the time it was mummy who delay her plan!! Reached there, Wien very excited to look for crap, keep chasing papa faster faster bring her to search for them. Lyon very wai sek, keep asking mummy to give her lollypop, as she saw mummy grab 2 stick of lollypop while papa pump petrol at petrol station. Other than lollypop, mummy also bought some bread and junk food. So, after she got her lollypop, she keep eating and licking it, refuse to play sand or water too! Mummy just let her be, as long as she did not making noise.
When she finish the lollypop, then only she come and join mummy to play sand. But she refuse to take off her shoe, she said : 肮脏, 肮脏 (Dirty, dirty)...hai, this silly girl! I was thinking she always at home run here and there with bare foot, till the foot so black, but never say herself dirty! *shake head*.....so most of the time she was wearing her shoes on the beach, until her shoes really wet, then only she ask me to take it off, she said : 湿湿, 湿湿 ( wet wet!) Mummy playing sand with Lyon while papa bring Wien to look for shell and crab; she brought along a pail with her too!
I think Wien is the one who enjoy the most! She doesn't want to wet herself but still keep chasing, running and jumping when the waves come towards her!
At last, she still wet herself. Lyon did not enjoy the waves, she said : 怕怕 (sked sked!). She also said Wien : 肮脏, 肮脏 (Dirty, dirty)....when she saw sand all over Wien's hands & legs! haha...this silly girl just refuse to touch the waves!! This is Wien's second time to beach, Lyon's first time! Hope in future can bring them to more further's beach.
