Stressed Out Mother’s Life

My life as a stressed out person… hopefully that feeling will go away soon

Reminiscing the Year 2008

with 2 comments

* Super backdated post πŸ™‚ *

The Year 2008 has been quite eventful for me. I got to travel to a lot of places, had loads of fun, had my share of cooking and baking though not much) and hordes of strength to take care of the 2 girls (you’ll be surprised that the 2 girls are able to bring the house down)…


  • Pie’s first year in kindergarten – surprisingly she didn’t kicked a fuss in the 1st week; 1st day was just crying and not letting go of us, 2nd day was having red eye but not much tears, 3rd day was happy to be sitting there and learning πŸ™‚


  • Few of my firsts – went to Bandung with my colleagues (not so closed ones)
  • Went to Langkawi (if not mistaken, the last time I was there, I was just a baby, even younger than Pea) with Hubby’s family
  • Pie’s first time school sports day. Each class had to attempt 2 games. At the end of the day, all children gets a gift, as an encouragement and appreciation to them


  • For the 1st time, my company had a team building session. Thought it was held somewhere nearby (Port Dickson), it didn’t dampen our team spirits. Splitting me and flatmates into different groups, we had to go through a few challenges and trying to emerge as the 1st one so that we get additional points / items for the next round. I thoroughly enjoyed this session, eventhough it was hot and sweaty, eventhough I had to miss Mother’s Day celebration, no doubt… I had a good time and it was totally fun!!!
  • Though Pie wasn’t feeling well the day before, we brought her to her kindy for her early b’day celebration, just before the school hols. It was just a quite 10 mins of singing b’day song, cutting cake and eating it, I can see that she thoroughly enjoyed her day with her friends. Every single day, she’ll come back and tell us who is her best friend and who are her classmates.


  • Another 1st time, I got to travel out of the country, on my company’s expense (oops… ok it was not the first – the 1st time was to Singapore), but then this time around it was even farther than Singapore… it was to Netherlands… and for a whole 2 weeks!!! Initially was quite excited, but after the 1st week, I missed my home super lots… esp. my 2 girls. Nevertheless, Netherlands was fun… and I went to Amsterdam!!! Had regrets not going there during my studies last time and thought that I would never ever get to go Europe anymore… Just my luck I guess, that this time around I was selected to go there… However, I missed out Father’s Day celebration (also!)


  • Took a day off to celebrate hubby’s b’day… spent the day with him without the kids… such long time we’ve never had a couple’s day out…
  • For the 1st time, he went out dating with a pretty girl… Pie πŸ™‚ He brought her to watch Wall-E… she was so excited that her Daddy was bringing her out to watch a movie…


  • Pie’s school concert – Not too sure who enjoyed this more, Pie / Pea. Pie could be enjoying coz she got to dance in front of everyone with her class; Pea also equally enjoying it as she was dancing to the tune (practically every tune) below the stage. Till date, she would request to watch Pie’s concert CD, so that she get to dance every night. And… she can memorize all the dances now… she even danced all of them during our pre-CNY dinner, an entertainment that couldn’t be found elsewhere πŸ™‚


  • A full month of non-stop action (esp. for hubby) to get the house up and ready for the big day. After putting up grilles and lights and fans, hubby had to paint the entire house (incl. ceiling) during the weekends and any other public holidays, just in time for our January’s ‘yup foh’ (moving in).

Here’s hoping that 2009 will have equal or more memories…
