Child Labour

Looks like Child Labour?  Erin insisted on carrying the Snoopy bag when we went out recently  :)
 
Inside the bag, there's : 1) Elyssa jie jie's jacket  2)  Erin's jacket.  3) Erin's full water bottle. 
Thus, not exactly light!
 

 
I made the Snoopy bag for Elyssa, so the handles are far too long for Erin. She has to lift her arm up high so that the bag doesn't slip off her shoulders.  :-)
 
Time for me to make a smaller version for her soon!

Bali Holiday - final post

Not quite done with my Bali posts yet  ;-)  Here's the last bit -
 
Aside from the pool time at Kamandalu, we spent a lot of time just chilling around. One of my favourite spots was this little gazebo next to the private pool. Loved just relaxing on the mattress, choosing between the pool view on one side and hill view on the other. 
 
 
 
On our second night there, we decided to go for the buffet dinner cum cultural night event at the hotel. Uhmm.....forgot to take any photo of food. It was a simple buffet with not much variety, but pretty good taste wise. Much better than our dinner in Ubud the previous night.
 
Main highlight was the cultural performance.
 
We got a very good table!  Front view of performance :-)
 
 
Welcome Dance
 
Warrior Dance


Legong Dance

 
 Funny Mask Dance 
 

Dance with audience. Can spot me?  ;-)
At the end of the performance, the dancers pulled people from the audience to dance with them. One of the ladies approached me, so I decided to join in the fun. Few moments later (while I was focusing on the dance steps), I heard Erin crying and saw  her running towards me. Ke ke....what to do. I scooped her up and finished the dance with her in my arms.

An enjoyable night indeed!  And it was also the last night of our holiday.

"Another great holiday", I said to myself on our last day BUT BUT BUT, it did not end so well.  FIRST, our flight home was delayed.  Supposed to be 7pm but got delayed to 10+pm and eventually to 11+pm.  Grrrr!!  Almost four hours extra in the airport with 2 tired girls :(

and SECOND, at the baggage scanning area, the lady in front of me carelessly pulled her baggage and in the process caused hubby's heavy souvenier package (7kg decorative roof ornament) to DROP ON MY FOOT!  Blardy painful!  I couldn't walk so I ended up going to the plane in a wheelchair.  Grrrrr!!!!   One of my thoughts at that time were "I waited 4 extra @!!* hours for that plane and I'm getting on in no matter what". 

Back home, I limped around for days with my injured foot before my colleagues urged me to see a doctor.  Turned out one my toes was FRACTURED!   Bleah.....!!!   Went around limping for a few weeks after that and was advised no physical exercise for 2 months.  So on top of the pain and inconvenience (limping makes everywhere seems so far)  I put on weight as a result of that freak accident.  Bleahhhhhh!!!

Easy "Cheat" Pizza

Last weekend, we made some easy "cheat" pizzas at home.
 
"Cheat" cos we used tortilla as pizza base and tomato puree straight from the can for the sauce.
 

 
Before starting
Our pizza topping : fresh button mushrooms (RM 5 per pack),  beef salami (RM5 per pack), grated cheese (RM10!!) , tomato puree (I think RM3 or 4) and chicken pieces (didn't have time to bake so I just did a quick stir fry)
Conclusion : Not that cheap!  I didn't expect the cheese to be so expensive.
 
 
Putting the pizza topping
 
 
Add more cheese
 
 
Hmmm....forgot to take photo of pizzas from the oven.  We made 4 altogether.
 
 
Time to eat!
 
 
Elyssa's response : Mummy, we make again next week ok?  please??
 
 
 
Quite an easy-peasy dinner for lazy weekends :-)

You Cannot Scold Me!



In the car this morning, we were about to leave the house whenI noticed Elyssa’s bag was not in the car. Elyssa admitted she left it in the house.

I grumbled and quickly unlocked the gate to retrieve her bag. Didn’t help that our dog escaped when I opened the gate and it took  precious minutes to get him back inside. Grrr! Didn’t want to be late for work. 
When I got back into the car – 

Elyssa: Mummy, you cannot scold me ok?
 
Me : Why? And Why you forgot your bag? I always say that you must take care of your own things. Bla bla bla bla.

Elyssa: Remember last time?  You also forgot your bag.  And I helped you take it.  You see, you also forgot wat...  You didn’t take care of your own things.   Since I helped you last time, you cannot scold me today.

Me :  *speechless*
