Yesterday 11th March is Nicklaus,my younger son's birthday and on the same day SPM result out.The name "Nicklaus"come from "Jack Nicklaus" the US golfer, one of his daddy most favourite idol golfer. I wonder if Nicklaus is born 8 years later maybe he's now call "Tiger" or "Wood".

The daddy brought a 1/2kg cake for show show only because everyone were be full after dinner.We go for Thai food,Nicklaus favourite food are otat otat,steam siakap, tom yam but yesterday my lil boy told his daddy to order what we like and not his favourite food because he don't feel like eating(eat dragon meat also no taste).

Well,I notice his eyes look a bit puffy, he got thru his SPM but was not satisfied with the result. He feel disappointed and he feel he let us down.

Nicklaus if u are reading this, remember we all love you ,we know you have done your best, you did well,those alphabet is not important, most important you PASS.

ME: may i know who is that on the line and calling from where?

MAN: nvm my name,i call from Klang, i just want 2 know how fast the skin can go white like yr skin.

MAN: u chinese girl right!

ME: yes i'm a chinese..

MAN: yalah.. all chinese girl got white skin.

ME: OK, MR if u think so, MR what else u wish to know about our product.

Bilateral Fibroadenomas

Back from my quarterly check up at Assunta Hospital, i have been following up this check up since year 2000. The Doc or rather myself want to monitor this lump (fibroid) on my right breast, every 6 months i have an ultra sound done to confirm ther's no changes in size or shape.

Why ultra sound and not mammogram screening actually mammogram is for early detection, but for ppl like myself who's already hv the lump is not advisable to do mammogram because it will be very painful when that machine compressed yr breast.
I did mammogram once and the pain i endure..omg

Fibroadenomas is some sort of mass breast tissue not properly form and it rather common for women to has it but the risk is still there.

Do self examination monthly 5 day after yr 'p' it take less than 5 min and that's how i found out mine...

Yellow Line

Last sunday we went to Jln Pudu for Dim Sam, the place there had limited parking lot, hubby looking around and he can't find any empty space so he end up park his car at the road shoulder.

I ask hubby can he park there, he said why not,but we are not suppose to park car on yellow line, hubby look at me and said the car is park INSIDE the yellow line not ON the yellow line.

I dun even know that parking inside the yellow line is not obstructing the traffic.
I wonder how many ppl know this or im one of those blurrrrrrrrr..driver.

My Daughter

My daughter was born on 23rd July (Mon) @ around 10am, weight 8lbs, she's my 1st born and the only girl in the family.She was a colic baby..for the 1st 6 months she sleep during the day and wide awake during the night.

I sometime felt that she has been bullying me since the day she was born,during her teen year she use to bully her younger brothers,they call her name behind her back like "fei poh, pat poh chey chey, wong how, pa wong kai la" etc.etc..Her back up, of course the DADDY! Whenever ther's a fight the daddy always turn around and speak in a very soft tone "girl y u like that" and to the boys his tone change completely.

Her rebellious during the 2nd ten years really make me sick, heartache and in tears most of the time, i hv been asking myself thousand time what hv i done to deserve this,is that part of growing up or im not the kind of mother she expect me to be and when is she going to grow up, grow out of it.

Before she graduate and announce she's going out with an ang moh.
I was what..,what she got herself into but the daddy said " trust her,she's big girl now". Ok,I should let go and trust her, that was 5 years ago..YES! the daddy is right, I'M VERY HAPPY FOR HER.

My daughter really really has grow up to become a fine young lady, she manage herlife well, happy and most important got someone who's sincerely,honestly love her and care for her.

As a mother,i feel proud and happy for her, although sometime she still give me the "headache"!

Egoism, Honesty, Love, Life and Death-1

I had 3 major op and few minor proceduces.Let start with the first.
My 1st operation was at SJMC in 1988 a week before the Raya Puasa,although it almost 22 years ago but it still fresh in my mind.. i remember we were on vacation at Tioman island(ther's no medical aid at all during that point of time) and it was our last night there when i had this severe stomachache,my stomach pain is so severe till i could not sit or walk,i can only curl myself in a foetus position and wait till the morning,we leave by pelangi air.

The pilot inform the airport(Subang) to call an ambulance(UM) to standby. Well, we touch down but there's no ambulance waiting, i was wheel into the airport hall and park near the corridor( a so call airport clinic near by)but no one seem to bother except my anxious hubby REPEATEDLY telling me "DARLING,DARLING OPEN YR EYES,DEAR PLS HOLD ON, DUN SCARE ME, WE NEED U, I LUVE U, HOLD ON THE AMBULANCE ON THE WAY" and at another corner i can hear this 3 or 4 malay ladies giggle and talking about how many set of baju kurung they have ready for Raya.

Out of sudden by hubby could not keep his patience anymore he walk up to those ladies and ask is anyone of them a doc, one of them ans "YES, I AM A DOC".My dear hubby was so piss off and i remember every words he said that day," O.. u is the doc and u r so busy with yr raya , can't u see she in such pain, u never attend to her at all and busy talking about yr raya, what sort of doc r u and where is the ambulance".

I can't hear what she murmur about but i can hear my hubby telling her to call the nearest hospital for an ambulance,less then 10 min the SJMC ambulance arrives and within min i was at the hospital and a few doc already stand by, i was wheel in for emergency operation due to internal bleeding, my left fallopian tube leak (unexplain cause)and the tube removed (found out 12 years later).

Later my hubby told me the doc told him that im lucky to be a life if im late by another 1/2hr i will died of hemorrhage.i need 6 pack's of blood transfusion.

I was discharge 5 days later and on the way home i ask my hubby, what happen if i didn't make it, he answer " no big deal, i will soon forget u and remarry".

Well! that human being is a man!

time flies

CNY just over, now is march the next festive is the "cheng Meng"(offer prayer to the dead at cemetery).sigh...time really flies.
