A Turbulent January

It has been a very long and stressful January. I have not been reading any blogs until today. There was so much problem in the office, everyone was just stressed out. Finally, there is light at the end of the tunnel. One day, when the stress factor is completely removed, I will write about it. Enough to say that my blood pressure went up, first time in my life.

My eldest, AQ1, is now in a boarding school Seremban. She is still adjusting, I think it's a shock to her system that she has to do everything herself. Kat rumah tak pernah buat kerja langsung. Unlike me, Std 3 dah pandai basuh baju.

I even forgot what my blog is called, apatah lagi my password!

AZ2 is 6 today!!

Today is my youngest son's 6th birthday. He is by nature a happy child, he brings sunshine to the family as he is a sanguine..His teachers miss him when he was absent from school, last year he had hand, foot and mouth disease. He's not scared by ghosts stories. When we balik kampung last school holidays, my Sister In Law hairan seeing him sitting on a chair in front of the bathroom. You know how slightly eerie a rumah kampung can be, furthermore banyak pokok2 pula tu. His eldest sister actually made him sit there coz she was scared!!
When I was pregnant with him, I was really tired all the time and really heavy. When I complained to the gynae, all he said was..biasalah tu, dulu pregnant umur 20an..sekarang 30 an... No wonder as he was the biggest at 4.13 kg, he was even bigger than AQ1 (my eldest) at 1 month old.
I actually tried to enter him into Std 1 this year, tapi tak diluluskan, he can read and write but spelling not so good yet. He is happy about not going to proper school yet. He gets to enjoy another year of main2, he is quite imaginative at play. He can make robots and pistols out of blocks and can entertain himself with minimal toys.
Last month, he asked me to get a baby as babies are so cute..I said you are my baby, he said..No, I am big already..Last night we went out for dinner and I already made 2 cakes for him, 1 for school and 1 for the family later tonight. Rupa cake tak ada coz I'm still amateur, nanti dah terra sikit buleh ambik gambar

16 things about me

First of all, this is my very first entry. I wish everyone to have a blessed New Year 1430 Hijrah and 2009.

I have been tagged by Wanshana, so here goes:

16 things about me:

1. I was born in Penang and spent only 12 first full years of my life there, then went to secondary school in Seremban and since then, have only been back for short trips. I always feel so happy to be back and meet my relatives there, back to my roots.

2. I had 4 elders brothers and 1 sister (who died before I was born). Last year, around this time my 3rd brother passed away after coming back from Hajj, it was a very sad time for me. My father passed away 3 weeks before I graduated in 1990 and my mother passed away in 2006.

3. I am in the accounting industry, a career that is supposed to fit my personality. I am a melancholic-phlegmatic, meticulous and a person with few words. I like dealing with numbers, but not very good with people. But I've learnt to open up and be more friendly. People used to think that I'm snobbish, though I have nothing to snob about! I am actually very shy.

4. I love to read. I read all sorts of books, amongst my favourites are Agatha Christie, Jeffrey Archer, Sophie Kinsella, John Grisham, Dan Brown, Mitch Albom and Alexander McCall Smith. When I was a teenager I loves Mills & Boon and that Flowers in the Attic series but I don't like romance novels anymore

5. I am married and have 2 boys and 2 girls (selang bunga, starting with a girl). How did I manage that? Rezeki and a bit of a planning..My eldest is daughter is going to Form 1, followed by my Std 5 son, Std 3 daughters and my 6 year old son.

6. I have known my husband more than half my life, since I was 19 years old. He's only 6 days older than me.

7. I love to cook and bake. But I'm not one of those who can whip out something at a short notice. I need to be ready to cook. I've recently learnt to bake cakes and buns, since my hubby bought me an oven.

8. I love to watch family dramas and mysteries (like CSI). I like action movies like the Bourne series and the Bond movies (ONLY with Daniel Craig). Harry Potter and the Narnia series are ok too but I never get the Matrix! Ermm..I love cartoons (I've forgotten the right word!) such as Madagascar and Shrek, but my fav is still The Incredibles.

9. Why did I choose the name Busybody? Because I felt like a busybody reading people's blogs!! But I don't think I am really.

10. I like to pamper myself occasionally, going for massage and facials. I tell myself that I earned it especially after a really stressful time at work!

11. Sometimes I get stressed out at home too, especially when the kids fight..sigh..but lately been feeling a bit melancholic cause my eldest is going to Form 1, in my old school. Children grow up real fast, I still remember her as a colicky baby, crying non stop from Maghrib till midnite for 2 solid months!! I am growing old..

12. I am a worrier, what to do, Allah makes me that way. I worry when we go to the beach (when the kids go too far away), I worry when we go mandi sungai (takut batu2).

13. My favourite singer is Celine Dione and I like Siti Nurhaliza too..though I have never bought any CDs!

14. I feel so lucky to have been born in Malaysia.

15. I don't like computer games, or playstation. Sometimes just seeing my kids play PS2 makes me pening already.

16. I learnt how to cook after I got married, when I stayed with my Sister In Law for 2 months. Masa student dulu, I only knew how to make sambal sardine, ayam goreng, ayam masak merah and nasi goreng. But I have improved a lot.

Phew..jenuh juga ya nak fikir 16 things about me!
