A Heart Full Of Spaghetti

Last weekend I was back in my in-laws place. My SIL cooked some kind of long bean dish that Ethan loved so much he alone ate almost half of it. Nvm… Then guess what? Darling had to ask Ethan who is the better cook? My SIL or ME? And Ethan answered, “Kuku…” (which also means my SIL-lah). You know who was the happiest then? No prize for guessing.. yeah.. my MIL! It’s no secret I’m […]

When I’m concentrating on something and he asks me a question I’ll just nod and say YES no matter what […]

I still sit outside and go online from my iPhone. So sometimes when I see him dangling from inside like the picture above, I’ll […]

Camera memory card not responding

I got a BIG scare this morning when my loyal memory card did not respond when I slotted it in my PC’s card reader. A friend once told me that a card reader only has that much of a life span and if I slot it in the card reader every single day I am just cutting its lifespan short. But seriously I can’t help it as I needed those pictures on a daily basis. […]
