So we’re finally, FINALLY back from the hospital. It was a horrendous two weeks in HKL. Papa is entitled to the first class ward, but due to it being fully booked, we were in the second class ward. No aircond, 6 beds to a unit, and 18 on each wing. It was really REALLY hot in there. The heat really makes things a hundred times worse. I felt exhausted, sleepy and sluggish the entire time. That could also be attributed to the fact that I was getting an average of 5 hours of sleep every day. I don’t want to even BEGIN telling you how I saw people literally dying in front of my eyes, how their family bawled their eyes out, the wife wailing away. Gosh no.

 

So, I’d rather speak of happier things. Guess what. I am now an aunt! 🙂 Bro’s wife delivered a baby girl less than a week ago. She has a head FULL of black hair and has a dimple on her right cheek, just like me!

 

Introducing Baby M 🙂

 

Look at those lips!

Little girls are such a joy to have. There’s loads of pink little baby clothes all over the place now. Yesterday, Aunty Rosie and I went to One Utama, and were in Baby Gap, Baby Guess, OshKosh and M&S looking at baby stuff. OMG, the girls stuff totally kick ass. Theres just SOMETHING about wee little denim skirts and pink booties and frills 🙂 Guess had some really nice stuff, but geez, wayyyyy too overpriced for a kid that would prolly wear it 3-4 times max before growing out of em.

 

I know HB would kill me for saying this, but when I have kid(s), I hope she/they would all be girls 😛

 

But as of now, I only have a little boy. He’s almost four and very, VERY naughty. Here’s a picture.

While at the hospital mini-mart, I spotted these goodies I used to love as a kid. I’ve not seen them  else these days.

 

 

Ding Dang!

I never actually bought Tora coz it was “upper class” stuff 😀 It cost RM1 a box ( a princely sum those days) and comes with a toy inside. They had the tackiest, worst ads on tv that would begin with “TORA DATANG LAGI DENGAN (insert name of new toy)…..” And it would end with “TORAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!”

 

I LOVED Ding Dang though. If I was lucky enough to get one, I considered it my lucky day. It was 50 cents and came with a tiny pack of chocolate covered rice balls and a little toy (compared to Tora). Wanna know a secret? I never did eat those chocolate balls. 😛 They were disgusting, frankly. Even for a 7 year old. Of course I bought them for the toys! 😀

 

Hmmm, maybe I should go a-hunting for the snacks I used to eat when I was a kid. There was Hiro, the chocolate covered sponge cake, and Super Ring (OMGGGG), the ring shaped keropok that was a BRIGHT orange and would stain my fingers for hours. I wonder how much more unhealthy it could get. But gosh, that was my favourite snack! And then there was Mamee. I loved the freebies inside. And oh, how can I forget the ice cream Malaysia! The 10 cents ice lollies, but only in asam flavour please, thankyouverymuch.

 

Mum and I chanced upon this guy on his old school bicycle selling cendol. On a sweltering day, cendol is nothing short of HEAVENLY. The rojak stall next door had lots of customers too, but I’m not a fan of rojak.

Don’t let the brown coloured liquid put you off. It is REAL GOOD STUFF I tell ya.

 

It’s pouring outside, the way it always does on Good Friday. I know Easter is in two days, but I’m not exactly feeling Easter-y. Easter is supposed to represent new life, a day for joy and glory. The way things are, I’m not inclined to feel thankful or happy.

 

In any case, here’s wishing you a Happy Easter.

Quick One

Heard about the earthquake in Italy. Thank you for all your concern. HB and I are safe. The earthquake happened in L’Aquila, near Rome, and thats about 6 hours away from where we live, so things are ok.

 

I’ve not been updating coz papa is in hospital again, and things are absolutely, absolutely hectic, crazy and exhausting at my end.

 

Wish me luck, strength and courage to face this difficult period.

 

XOXO
