hello 2017, sorry I've been MIA

Hello Hello Hello! Happy New Year!

😂 I know I am a few days late but I do have a valid reason.

No, I am not pregnant if that's what you guys been thinking, sorry to disappoint you. The reason of my absence since November is not because I was vomiting beside my toilet bowl ( morning sickness ) it's because I've been busy with my family.

November was crazy for me. Mika was sick every week, I kid you not and he was on 3 antibiotic course and when your kid is sick, it is very indeed very tiring taking care of him. A sick child is no joke. You constantly worry and kept on figuring why is he sick for 4 weeks in a row. Why didn't the fever subside? Trust me, it was horrible to be worry sick. From ear, lungs infections to viral fever... it was very hard. Then December came and we took Mika to Singapore for Christmas and we had a wonderful time there celebrating Christmas with the Ng family. The company and food was good but the worship to God was great! It was truly a special weekend.

Then it was off to Busan right after to celebrate NYE with Marcus' friends. So, we were busy travelling from 23rd December till 2nd January. 

Then I got sick.


On New Years Eve.....


I was alone in my hotel room in Busan and slept through it so that the next day I could walk around Busan to explore. My girls even FaceTime me the next day ( 1st January ) as we promised to talk about our New Years Resolution together. Everyone was celebrating in Penang, except for me as I was in Busan and they even called me a traitor as we normally celebrate the New Years together 😂

The talk was good as we share our resolutions and what resolutions we have for each other and also group resolutions. Now we just need to keep everyone in check. 

Make sure you have a few too, and share it with your friends or family. It's always good to keep short and long term goals. 

Mika also started schooling already and he is getting better! He doesn't really cry anymore and is more independent which is GREAT. Normally he will show his sad face or he will start crying but I am just glad that TODAY is the first day where he is OK to go in class without any noise. After sending him to school, I popped by Jaya Grocer to do some grocery shopping, came home and clean the house a little and find time to blog and I've done all of this by 11 am. 

Feels good to be back on my feet without feeling sickly.

I was fully recovered 3 days ago and now I am ready for 2017! 

You might guess what was my first resolution?

To be a stronger and healthy mom so that I can take care of Mika and the family.

What's yours?

The 5 love languages

My girlfriends and I enjoy talking about love, relationships, boys, men, work, our passion, sex, etc. So the other day, this topic came up about the 5 love languages and we all did the profile test ( link below ) and I honestly think it's a great way to get to know your partner better on how both of you want to receive love as everyone is different.

Marcus and I did the test. I did it first and instantly after answering a few questions, I could roughly figured out what Marcus' answer would be and I WAS RIGHT. ( Most men hates it when a women says this and vice versa )

I also didn't realised until I finished it. I mean, the answer was there all along, how come I didn't see it? I should have known better.


Sometimes we take things for granted. We don't realised what's been happening. Sometimes we just argue or get upset and just keep it to ourselves while psycho-ing ourselves saying that it's OK, this is normal, all men are like that. Then we brush it off with a bottle  glass of wine with our girlfriends. 

In our current situation, we are really attached with social media. It has become our newspaper. A newspaper which could be refresh automatically and more news will be delivered. We buried ourselves in that lives. Be honest, you can go hours on social media right? I know I can. Sometimes I can even get angry at us for doing it. 

Both Marcus and I will zone out once Mika is asleep. We just wanted to rest and DO NOTHING and the phone sounds like a good companion at that time. Honestly, it is also a great way to relax for me by scrolling my newsfeed. I get to catch up with the current news and also learn some new beauty tricks, etc. But perhaps maybe we should cut it down and talk to each other more as communication is actually EVERYTHING.


We started talking about how we would love to receive love from one another.

The 5 languages of love are :

We compared our results and we get to know each other better.

My profile was Physical Touch while his was Acts of Service

I never knew that it was that important for him when it comes  love. I didn't know that the way he will feel LOVE from me is by doing things for him. I got it wrong. I was pushing towards quality time, gifts and touch before we did this test.

For him, ACTION speaks LOUDER than WORDS.

He then told me that he feels love when I clean up the house, taking care of Mika, helping him take water/food from the kitchen when we are in the room because he's too lazy to get out of bed and we always fight who is nearer to the door etc 😂  

All this simple things I didn't know it was love for him. If I knew, I wouldn't have to pretend to have a broken foot whenever he ask for water, or to shift to the other side of the bed which is further from the kitchen. 

So, that's why I think it's really important to know and to discuss your profiles with your partner.

Hope this works for your relationship!

Enjoy love, celebrate love!

Answer the questions as honest as possible and good luck!

Ps : And yeah, Marcus has touching my face more often that I wasn't used to it. But it feels nice to get  surprised hugs or stolen kisses once in a while. 

Pss : Maybe some of my friends will start hugging me more randomly or hold my hands once they read this post 😂😂  i'll be waiting hahahahah

Cheers and Happy Monday,

Hey Mika, You are TWO Handsome!

Hey Mika! 

Let's go back to the year 2016

You are now two years old! How time flies. When I looked back at your one year old party, you looked very very different with no hair but your smile never changed and it's the one thing I looked forward most. Ok, let MaMa refresh your mind about your second birthday party. 

The theme was Love. Cook. Play, more of a cooking theme, since you love playing cooking with the IKEA kitchen a lot. Perhaps you got it from PaPa and Grandma. MaMa was very sick that day due to food poisoning and had no strength at all. But luckily, MaMa have a supportive family and very very very good friends.

Grandma was the chef of the day as she cooks for everyone at the party
Grandpa was busy being a MacGyver helping up with the decoration set ups
Your uncles and aunties were there helping the family to set up your party

and not forgetting Aunty Su Anne and Aunty Amy who came earlier to help MaMa to set up the place. I couldn't have done it without them. Basically, I just told Aunty SuSu what to do then I went to sleep because I was feeling very sick. Later when I was awake, the party decoration was already half done. 

Come check it out!

We rented the Hyper Kitchen, Hyper Dine and 2 Hyper Chill for your birthday this time.

We even had a PLAY ROOM for you to play with your friends.

All decorations are done and designed by Aunty Su Anne, who ever needs help with deco for parties, remember to look for her! She also couldn't have done it without the help of her husband, Uncle Ian when it comes to printing it! As usual, Uncle Ian never sent me the bill, until today......
 So, Mika.... remember to buy them some beers when your older. 😆

This is an OWL vege platter designed by PaPa for everyone who wants to eat healthy! Isn't it cute? 

This is Richard, mom wants you to remember him in case he moved back to Russia. He is one of your very first friend from Verve Suites. Not forgetting Ayaan also who couldn't make it to your party because he was in Langkawi celebrating his birthday.

'There you are' is one of your favourite lines.

Uncle Chris and Baby Jo-Alyn

 Grandpa and Mika

MaMa and Mika

 Aunty Su Anne and Mika
( please don't ajak her go clubbing when you turn 16 )

Man of the hour

Oh! Did you know that Aunty Jillian gave you an exclusive gift? It's a customised temporary tattoo for your party! How cool right?  Thank you for sponsoring Mika! For those of you who wants to customised your own tattoos for your party, kindly email : for more information. 

Thank you dear family and close friends who made it for the party! Mika is so blessed to have all of you in his life. 

Love your baby smile here, Mika!

Overall the party was fantastic! Everyone enjoyed the meal and your friends had a blast in the play room. Oh, do you love your cake? It is baked by Aunty Jess again! Isn't she super talented?

All above photographs are taken by The Wedding Barn, do check their page out

Then, Uncle Dique took over as the photographer here as Uncle Duncan had to leave : 

This is Asher and Uncle Jason, one of your first friends as well! We used to go to their house in DPC to play together, with that meaning.... you guys still play by yourself while the mothers chit chat hahahhaha 😂 ! Aunty Ren and Richard joins in too! 

This is Kirk getting his tattoos done. I remember half way when Aunty Jill was applying the customised tattoo on him, Aunty Su Anne just showed him that she has the same tattoo and Kirk just look at her and said ' Are you kidding me? ' 

We all burst into laughter. It was so funny! You were there too, but probably don't know what we were laughing about.

That night, Zach was the ladies man! I kid you not. At first he was really shy and always hide behind his mama, Aunty Cheri. Later he loosen up and he talked a lot with all the aunties in the play room. He was really charming and funny. He was cheeky as well, for wanting to stick the tattoos on MaMa so many times. Some I managed to escaped, but with the help of your naughty aunties, Zach somehow managed to stick 3 or more on MaMa. Overall, I had 5 on me. 

Then it's time for the cake cutting ceremony! Sometimes I can't believe you are two already. 😭

Also, thank you Ko Ko Sheena for helping mom with the gift bags for your friends! She is so creative when it comes to this.

So, Mika... do you remember now? Hope you had a wonderful time and till next time, just keep smiling! 😊

Happy Birthday to my precious son who never fails to make me laugh. You have brought so much love and laughter into our lives. May the good Lord bless you.

Ma Ma
