I'm Sore'ry

I went to bed with a very bad throat and woke up with a very bad throat. At least this thing is constant in life. ;p now... HOW did I develop this sore throat? I really do not know.
I took Shireen's car to The Gardens last evening, after tuition and had a bowl of beancurd (good for throat right?) whilst they had some yummy porridge. We shopped around abit then I left them to do some grocery shopping before Alan arrived.
I went to CarrerFour to pick up some stuff and before I was done, Alan told me he was arriving. I hurried to pay and then met him at the carpark to dump all the stuff into the car.
Dinner was a novel experience at yet another taiwanese restaurant. I had spicy ramen (sore throat causing?) and he had crispy chicken noodle soup and we shared steamed dumplings and a bubble green tea.
Quarrantine was v interesting. Thankfully I was motion sick because the show was about a camera man and a reporter covering a night out with firemen. If you havent watched it, there are no spoilers in here ( I don't believe in being a kill-joy) but for thriller fans and men who want your girlfriends hugging you in the dark whilst in the cinema...this is the show for u!
Today, 26 Nov (Happie Birthday Trish G2!!) -
I will be having tuition with Hayden (again) later and also Dania tonight. It will be a longggggggggg Wednesday, esp since Alan gets back late. But I must say, the time is flying us by and so is the week. Dunno whether to be happie or sad?

I realised my days are getting less and less busy and my students are getting fewer and fewer. ahaha. I must increase my opportunities by advertising more widely. It can get boring with nothing concrete to do. Most of the days, I only have scheduled either 1 or 2 max students. *sigh*
Anyway, today's Tuesday and I am counting down to my family visiting me from 7/12 till 14/12. hahaha It will be one exciting week filled with good food, fantastic shopping, facials and massages! Malaysia will be on SALE from Novemeber end till start of January as well as EMBRACE this opportunity, everyone and hop across the causeway for a great time. ahahhaha. Now now, I ain't turning Malaysian (unlike my husband ;p) but savings (while shopping) during such a turbulent time is fantastic....sure beats stopping shopping ya?
Today, ALan and I will be checking Quarantine at Mid Valley. Hope I don't develop a headache cos it's kinda like Blair Witch Project ya? I better bring a plastic bag in case I get motion sickness in the cinema. ahahhaha.
Anyway, today is a relaxing day (again) for me because I've only got Hayden as my student today. :) We are going to write about Cinderella - as requested by The Mum, since his school teacher will be asking them to write that fairy tale in class on Thursday. hahaha. It's brain-washing the kids to believe in the "Happily Ever Afters" again!

All the above are photos taken by MY bedside of the two furry brothers. Da Bai and Xiao Bai. They can co-exist harmoniously (although in general, Da Bai is the one giving in to XB) and XB gets his way most of the time. hahaa.

DVD watching and a Jab in the ass.

Ahhhh.. Iphone games can be quite quite addictive. I've downloaded quite a few and they have kept me gainfully occupied. There's flick fishing...china mahjong...bejewelled etc etc... That's why my blog has been empty since Wednesday, I guess. ahahhaa. New interests beckon!
Anyway, this weekend was quite fulfilling..

Saturday 22nd November 2008 (Happy Birthday Fe Mei!)
We woke up at 10am (we had slept late on Friday, at 2am, after watching The Strangers on dvd. It's a thriller about how a couple get stalked and tortured by three psychotic mad people. Very chilling and creepy and we were gripping each other throughout the show. The ending was a bit lame though *warning* and Liv Taylor is HUGE!

So..anyway... we left for The Gardens to meet the Kua family for Magadascar 2! Alan and I bought in popcorn and hotdogs for our brunch and we enjoyed the show. hahaha. I like the little fella Morty or something. He is doleful eyes and is so darn cute!
After the movie, we all had Jap at the gardens and left around 4+pm to bowl at our KLGCC. We had promised our godson, Hayden to bring him bowling.

Whilst the adults played 2 games each, our avid bowler of a godson threw ball after ball into the lane (the gutters were up) and he totalled FIVE games when we were done. ahahhaa. He had to use two hands and his whole body weight to fling the bowling ball but that didn't stop him! hahaha. It's really cheap to bowl at this club but sad to say, they will be demolishing this wing for renovation at the end of the month. Sigh.

After the game, we went our separate ways and then Alan and I went home to stone. We watched another dvd. This time a Chinese ghost thriller.

23rd Nov 2008 (Sunday)
I had tuition this morning from 10-1130am to prepare Su Li for her examinations on Wednesday and then we brought the two little fellas to Ikano. Both of them had their baths and trimming before we brought Coco to get jabbed (his 2nd vaccination). Alan and I sneaked in some lunch at Absolute Thai (tomyum noodles soup, mango salad, thai fishcakes) and also shopping at Ikea where we picked up some drinking glasses, wine glasses, a big glass bowl to bubble our foodstuff etc.
I finally bought my vacuum cleaner as well so that I can suck dirt up from the tuition table after each lesson. ahahhaa.
By the time we got home at ard 5pm, we were exhausted. Alan fell asleep on two dining table chairs and snored promptly whilst I curled up on the sofa and cuddle my osim blanket.
Dinner was at the fishhead beehoon place we always frequented but today we tried their steamboat admist the thunderstorm. perfect weather for such food. It was yummy. :)
