Visit to Twinsmom house

Last Sunday I brought along my children to visit Maria at Jalan Gasing. I call her few days b4 cause want to taste her cooking..muahaha. It 100% yummy, she make cream cheese fish on tortilla for us but too bad b4 I went to her house I had my breakfast and lunch. Carol and Carrie like it so much, but Carter didnt tried cause he is a picky food very scare to try new thing. 1+2dad fetch us to there and he gone home wait for my call to fetch us again.

When reached her house I call her, she went down to meet us. In front of her MIL house got a little tinny dog, I didn’t realize there got a dog until it bark to my son. Her SIL came out to we just say hi to her then we went up to her house.

I like her back house roof top (transparent), cause she hang her laundry there without direct sunshine and if raining no need care about the laundry will wet or not. She said sometime she already forgot about the laundry still hang there, sometime will leave it overnight at there too.

Tell you all a secret, Maria no look like her in her wedding photos. She just look like a secondary school gal, very very young looking. She very slim (now also slim liao compare last time I saw her), didn’t wear spec.

Annabelle and Isabelle brought my kids to their bedroom to play jump jump on their bed. Maria asked to have her cream cheese fish on tortilla, but I just ate so wait abit longer I tried it. It very nice and but not so crispy cause maybe already cold down quite long.

We chit chat there while the kids play around and watch TV. Later we went down stair to let her MIL saw my twins, and the kids play at her SIL room. I think about 15 min my son wants to go back to Maria house. At about 2 pm, 1+2dad reached and we gone home.

New Toy

Last Sunday we had been to 1U again. The nite b4 we go, 1+2dad ask my son which toy he want.
1+2dad : boy, daddy buy the robot for want or not?
Boy : want!!!

1+2dad : you want robot or the dinosaur?
Boy : I want big robot.

1+2dad : why you want robot, dunwan dinosaur?
Boy : the big robot can beat the dinosaur.

So the next day we went to 1U after we had our breakfast at Kayu Nasi Kandar nearby our house. At the shop, 1+2dad decided to buy the robot for him that day but they had no stock for the blue color robot so we order from them and to pick up the stock when it reach their shop.

We walk around and back to home about 1pm. I had a survey at Old Town, so I went there with my son. It was a diapers survey, just look the advertisement and answer some question. It take about half an hour and I get RM 50..hehe..an extra pocket money for me.

The next day after I weak up from nap, I saw 1+2dad bought the robot for my son and he open it on my MIL(mother in law) room. I said why so early buy the robot for him and his birthday haven’t reach yet? He said nvm just let him have the robot early.

My son weak up saw the robot he want, he very excited and happy. He play with the robot and when the time to sleep he put the robot at the corner of his bed. He said the robot want to sleep with him.


This is the close up to the Robosapien.

The robot came with the remote control. This color very nice compare with others color. (it got gold and white)



Additonal :

Carrie know how to sing the "twinkle little star" with her own style.

They do things together!!!

So many ppl will ask me whether my gals are twins or not? They very look alike, cause they are identical twins. They are many way look same and sometime we also will mix up too.

Sleep
They like to sleep in the same post, the photos I posted it b4..here and here. Most of the day, they sleep together in the same time and wake up in the same time.

Eat & drink
They eat and drink together, when ever the other eat sure you will see the other ask for the same things. They drink milk together since I trained them sleep together in the same time.

Toilet
They will pee and poo in the same time too. Funny?? If 1 of them pee or poo first the other will come in a min difference. So when I toilet train them, if I saw 1 of them wet their nappy or pant I will get the other one go toilet..hehe..she sure can done her business.

Play
Most of the time they play together same as most of the time they fight of the same toys. I will try to get another toy for the 1 who cant play the same toy but if the other saw it she also want that toy, so if can I will get the same toy same colour for them. If just only one, I will tell them give back to her kor kor(brother), her kor kor want to play. No more fighting cause their kor kor want to play, some time my son will cooperate with me take back the toy but some time he scold me to give back the toy for them.

Dance
They dance in the same post, they lot of difference with my son. I though they should be difference cause they personality are difference but they dance in the same post. They like to shake their body but my son just shake his head when they dancing.

Bath
They bath together since they know to sit that is about 8 months old. Sometime they bath with their kor kor too.

Talk
They start talking almost the same time, now they talk equally. If 1 of them says the word like ‘dunwan’ the other will follow. They also like to follow what we said and their bother said.

I dunno other twins are same like them?? These twins give me so many new things to learn and find out. They are also miracle, still dunno what they think.

I asked 1+2dad b4, if 1 of them goes oversea (if used old passport) should the custom know they are twins if they used the same passport? Now I know cant, cause the passport got the chip that identify the fingers print.

I also think of if got boy want to pursue 1 of my gal then the boy dunno she is twins..haha..izzit got many funny things will happened?? I think too much!!!

Another funny laugh!!!

Top 10 reasons why we SHOULD buy pirated VCDs

1. Free black plastic bag
You can't get those cool black coloured bags anywhere.The ones sold outsideare too big and they are meantfor the tong sampah.

2. Family bond
Every weekend, when you go to wangsa maju JJ, you can see little kids running to the VCD shop to select their favourite Pokemon cartoon VCD. And then mommy will come along to find her favourite Teresa Teng VCD.Next comes big sister to select her F4 VCD. And lastly, big bro and daddy searching for the latest movies ... and try to eye for some you-know-whatVCD. Anyway, the whole idea is, the pirated VCD shop is like a place for weekend family reunion. When was the last time you saw daddy buying little Billy a VCD in Speedy Video ?

3. Cinema sucks
When you reach the cinema, you'll have to line up for 15 minutes before it's your turn to get the ticket. By then, they tell you ticket sudah habis.So you buy tickets for the next show and have to wait another 3 hours. When the time comes, the ticket usher stops you from bringing nasi lemak and cha-kuay-teow into the hall.So you're forced to line up another 10 minutes in the snack bar. By then, you're already late for the show. Lampu sudah tutup(light is off) when you go in. Oooppss.. terjatuh(fall off) and very one laughs at you. Next,the cinema bores you with 15 minutes of iklan(advertisment). Frankly speaking, I dunno why the government ban 'triple x' VCDs when all the beer commercials in the cinema feature sluts dancing around. Later, your handphone rings and everyone boos you.At last, the show ends but you'll need to beratur(line up) through the smelly exit.After 30 mintues, you notice that your handphone is lost. The only thing good about cinemas is the fact that you can throw kua-chi on the floor.

4. Customer Friendly Sellers
Buying VCDs from the stall is like dining in a luxury restaurant. First, those blond hair sellers will greet you with 'leng-chai'. It's now time to order the meal. If you know what to order,they will search the title for you.But if you're undecided, these fellas will suggest some meals for you.Strangely, all movies (according to them) are nice to watch. When you've finished, here comes the main course. The rectangular box containing all the finest artistic international stuff.(porn?)..And you can bargain too! But when you buy VCDs from Speedy Video, the shopassistants will stand few meters away from you, with their arms tied and eyes alert, thinking that you're another shoplifter.

5. Beli barang buatan Malaysia
The title says it all. No need to say more.

6. You go to the movies...while watching the most suspense part in a love movie....as the guy and girl are about to kiss...all of a sudden, the screen goes into matrix mode. And then it changes to some dull scene. Doesn't this sound familiar? Say thank you to our censorship board for helping us removethe "naughty" parts. You never get this when you buy pirated CDs.

7. 6 years ago, piracy was a minority because of the original CD pricing and contents. 3 years ago, they increased original CD prices by 70% and say it's because of import duties, tax and other crap.While at the same time, the pirated CD prices drop by 50% - 70%.Customers would prefer to buy from a sale right?

8. Piracy helps students to learn new programs at a reduced price cost. If every student is going to spend RM800 just to buy Adobe Photoshop, then Malaysia would lag behind in the computer graphics industry. So in the long run, Malaysia's economic status becomes better with more knowledgeable citizens.

9. As people are willing to spend money on pirated CDs but not that willing to buy original cds, they are circulating the money and helping to increasethe GDP.

10. Pirated VCDs offer the latest movies, even before they are shown in theU.S.! Compare this to original VCDs,where you have to wait for a few months after the movie is first released.

This one also my friend sent to me, just have a laugh!!! But i did agree some of the reason..haha.

F1 Road show at 1U

Yesterday after we had our breakfast we head to 1U. Actually I want to go Ikiano but 1+2dad said there very boring so we want to 1U.

When we reached there we saw another road show held at the main center of new wing. Last week was Honda and this week is Petronas. We didn’t go there cause my kids saw another road show more excited.

It is Michelin counter nearby Parkson. My kids saw the Michelinman walk around and take photos with the customer. We didn’t bring along the camera but there had a guy (wear a Michelin uniform) took photos for us. First I though they need some photos for their show but after we took photos 1+2dad told me we can download the pic at their site at certain date. Wow!! New things we just know.

There also had many game and lucky draw. Changing F1 wheels and counts the Michelinman how many wheels on this body. We get a key chain and a cap from the lucky draw.

After that we walk around, pass by a high tech shop that inside got some of very high tech toys. The robot so attractive us it cost about RM 400 and a dinosaur too. Both also can use remote control to control them and it got sound sensitive too. The dinosaur just like a pet, you can touch his head and under his mouth he will show lovely like a cat. Another thing that attractive us is the dinosaur can communicate with the big robot (this cost about RM 1k plus). It will follow what the big robot asks him to do.

About the robot (small), it can do about 64 moves. It can pick up things and other but the staff didn’t show us. Some more can download new program from the site. 1+2dad may buy it as my son 4 year’s old (2nd May) birthday gift for him. For me I think it not his toys but is more for our toys..haha.

Malaysian English vs British English.

Malaysian version is simple, short, concise, straight-to-the-point, effective.
Compare these phrases that Malaysians and Britons use to say the same things.
So, why make things so confusing and complicated?

Britons: Hey, put your wallet away, this drink is on me.
Malaysians: No-need, lah.

WHEN ASKING FOR PERMISSION
Britons: Excuse me, but do you think it would be possible for me to enter through this door?
Malaysians: (pointing the door) can ar?

WHEN ENTERTAINING
Britons: Please make yourself right at home.
Malaysians: Don't be shy, lah!

WHEN DOUBTING SOMEONE
Britons: I don't recall you giving me the money.
Malaysians: Where got?

WHEN DECLINING AN OFFER
Britons: I'd prefer not to do that, if you don't mind.
Malaysians: Doe-waaaan!

IN DISAGREEING ON A TOPIC OF DISCUSSION
Britons: Err. Tom, I have to stop you there. I understand where you're coming from, but I really have to disagree with what you said about the issue.
Malaysians: You mad, ah?

WHEN ASKING SOMEONE TO LOWER THEIR VOICE
Britons: Excuse me, but could you please ! lower your voice, I'm trying to concentrate over here.
Malaysians: Shaddap lah!

WHEN ASKING SOMEONE IF HE/SHE KNOWS YOU
Britons: Excuse me, but I noticed you staring at me for some time. Do I know you?
Malaysians: See what, see what!?

WHEN ASSESSING A TIGHT SITUATION
Britons: We seem to be in a bit of a predicament at the moment.
Malaysians: Die-lah!!!

WHEN TRYING TO FIND OUT WHAT HAD HAPPENED
Britons: Will someone tell me what has just happened?
Malaysians: Wat happen Why laidat??? ADUI!!! (jumping to conclusion)

Britons: This isn't the way to do it here let me show you.
Malaysians: Hoi!!!U pig ar laidat also doe no how to do!!!!

Successful Toilet Train

I start to let my gals toilet train when they were 18 months, about 8 months trained finally successful.

Actually I stop trained them to go toilet pee after a month tried. They still dun understand b4 want to pee need to tell me, I had to remind them every hour to bring them go toilet. I still gave them wear cloth nappy when I start train them but finally I know they already get used to pee in the nappy so they wont tell me.

Later I let them wear pants but still cant, so I decided to stop train them till lately about a month ago I start again. Why I start again?? Cause when I bring them to park ppl ask me why still let them wear nappy, can start toilet train them. I’m abit ‘kiasu’ mommy so I start again the toilet train and of cause they already 2 years old still wearing the nappy not so nice to see.

Try again, this time I let them wear pants whole day without replace back the nappy. First week still fail, but still try again. I let them sit on the potty when they want pee, first few time they scare of the potty. They scare sit on a hole and cant pee or poo on the potty.

Try few time, finally they can get used of it. Every time I remind them to pee in the potty that I put near the living hall. Finally I successes and now they will go pee and poo in that potty. If at upstairs, they will call me bring them go shhhh shhhhh (pee) or nggggg nggggg (poo).

No more cloth nappy to used and no need flow fold those cloth nappy. If I go nearby shopping and not for long I will bring them to toilet once finished shopping at shopping center, so long no accident happen yet. Later I will try not let them wear diaper to go shopping that need more hours to stay at shopping center, hope it will success too.

Mother Tongue

My previous post blog about the language we used at home with the kids and had 1 blogger comment about the mother tongue we seldom used nowadays.

Tracy comment:

1+2 mom, have to borrow ur space since u started the subject.Actually, how many of us do speak in our mother tongue nowadays?

Come to think of it. My father's a Hakka, my stepfather's a Hokkien, my mom's a Cantonese. I was under the care of my grandma and she spoke Cantonese with me. My PILs are Hokkiens but they speak Cantonese with my hubby. So, both of us (I'm a banana in Mandarin and hubby's no good in English) communicate in a mixture of Cantonese, English and Mandarin, so how do we speak ur mother tongue with our girl? Hee, hee, confused?

Then our girl will put the blame on us and we should put the blame on our parents and so on ....???*roll eyes and wondering*

In my case, my father is Hokkien and my mother is Cantonese and I born in KL so my parents scare we dunno how to communicate with other ppl that they usually speak Cantonese so they spoke Cantonese with us. Luckily my grandmom (father side) stayed together with us and she dunno other languages but just know Hokkien, so I still know some Hokkien but long time didn’t speak most of the word already forgot (since my grandmom pass away I didn’t speak Hokkien).

My hubby side, his father is Hakka (hor bo 河婆) and his mother is Teohchew. They spoke Hakka with his father but Cantonese with his mother, and between siblings they spoke Mandarin. They very less talk to his father so I very less hear they say Hakka at home. Because of very less ppl used this type of Hakka so my MIL (mother in law) said no need teach my children say Hakka.

Last time I ask my father speak Hokkien with my children because I notice quite a lot of ppl using Hokkien in so many places. Maybe my father didn’t speak Hokkien with us so he also dunwan teach them and my children 1 week once see my father, useless to teach them Hokkien. I hope my children can be multilanguager too.

I still blame my father why dun speak with us in Hokkien, nowadays very less ppl talk their mother tongue maybe soon or later our generation dunno what is own mother tongue are.

I know like some area they still used back their mother tongue eg. At Penang, Klang and Johor usually they used Hokkien. My friend told me, if you in Klang or Penang need to buy drink or food at store. Those ppl speak Hokkien they gave more and count cheap if other then Hokkien they gave less and count expensive. I tried when I went to Penang, we had our lunch at those food store. My father get very cheap price when he order mix rice but I and 1+2dad were very expensive. I know 1 slogan they always said : Ka Ki Lang, Pa Si Bo Xiang Gang (in Hokkien) (in English means same race of ppl, been killed also nvm) (in Manderin means 自己人,打死没关系). They very help same race of ppl dunno is true or not.
