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 not the BEST DIL in the world-lah so upon hearing Ethan’s declaration that my SIL is a better cook than ME, apa lagi? Punya-lah HAPPY my MIL! >_<

But LUCKILY Ethan continued with… “but Mummy makes good spaghetti”

Aww….. at least there’s SOMETHING he loves about ME <3


Today for no apparent reason, I woke up feeling on top of the world. I decided to make spaghetti for breakfast :D

Tah-dah! Sprinkled some parsley flakes and put a heart made of cheese, my heart full of spaghetti is ready to be served to my precious Prince :D …. and the Prince’s father.. the so-called King! >_<

Ethan.. fascinated with the heart :D

I combed his hair while he is eating…

Haha.. there! Suka-nyer dia!

After spaghetti, I dressed him up and we still have some time to play before he headed to school :D

He’s happy, me happy and the King’s happy too I guess :P

One word of advice to all men out there:

“Never compare your wife with anything else in this world or you’ll find yourself sleeping alone on the couch at nights” :P
