Yesterday, my girl had her Grade 1 piano trial exam. Though it was only a trial, we were more nervous than her, worried about whether she would be nervous. Hahaha. It turned out alright. The examiner said that she was a very musical child and for a first timer, it was good achievement, something like that. My memory is so bad, even as I left the music school, I had forgotten what the examiner said so I can’t blog it. lol. I only remember “musical child’ so we went to celebrate even though we didn’t have the results yet. Hahaha. Anyway, its just a trial, so the “celebration” is to encourage and reward her for her hard work in practising and being brave during the test.
She wanted to have McDonalds, so thats what we had. After I left McDonalds and walked past KFC, I saw a familiar face. It was Small C. (The face was unmistakable) Then I saw Big C. So I looked out for Sasha. By that time we had walked on quite far ahead and the family was far ahead of me as I was turning my head back to look. I didn’t catch a glimpse of cute Lil C though. I wanted to run up to her to say “Hi! I know you but you don’t know me” then walk off with a cackle but then they went up the escalator and my family who likes to race in shopping malls had almost disappeared from view by then so I couldn’t go to kacau her.
Too bad. I would have loved to kacau her. My husband would probably think I am mad going to greet and chat with someone I don’t know like she is a long lost friend. Haha. But that is the thing with bloggers. She feels like a long lost friend even though I have not met her before. No, I think it should be, that is the thing with SOME bloggers. Those whom you connect with. They feel like someone whom you have known for a long time.
Maybe another time and place yah Sasha. Its just as well too because a moment later, the little one said “Mummy, I want to shi shi and mmm mmm” Oh. Oh. So I had to rush him to the toilet. Luckily I didn’t have to use a bottle like Sasha did. Haha. But when we reached the toilet, there was a long queue and the little one started to remove his jeans to get ready and everyone stared. Hahaha. I just smiled at another lady in another queue and said “Dia sudah tak boleh tahan” and the lady smiled back understandingly but no one offered the toilet for my poor boy. Hmm….
We went to the toy store to look at possible presents for the little one who will be 5 in two weeks time. He wants more cars for his birthday. Little cars, he says. Hmm… have to crack head on what to buy for him soon. Next month, have to crack head over what to buy for his sister. “If you all can’t tell me what you would like for your birthday, I will buy you more Maths books” says daddy who is their home Math tuition teacher leading to squeals of “No!” As for me, well, I would very much like to have a WII Fit or an electronic dictionary for my birthday which is in June. Hehehe.
Later on, we went to Cold Storage to get two loaves of bread and two ice-creams for the kids. I brought RM10 with me. When my bill came to almost RM15 I got a shock. Apparently the Mars ice-cream cost RM4.79 each! Siao!
Oh, another thing I wanted to write down but forgot. Last week we got a sofa bed for the study room. Its fun. Now we open up the bed during the weekends so that everyone can laze on it and I can have a good uninterrupted afternoon nap away from everybody. We can all congregate at the study room during weekends, daddy can play a game on the pc, the kids can play a game on the tv and mummy can laze on the sofa bed to read a book or daddy can laze on the bed to watch his kungfu movie, the kids can sit on the floor to read books while mummy uses the pc or the kids can laze on the sofa bed reading or playing, mummy can sit on the floor reading while daddy works on the pc etc. Lots of combinations. Hahaha. The funny thing with us is we spend much more time in our study room then in the living room. I guess that is because our family is small so its just more convenient and more cozy that way.
Lastly, a message to all you bloggers who always post lots of photos on your blog. You are now a familiar face in public and almost like a celebrity where everyone can recognise you. Hahaha.
I am not famous then. I have zero photos of me on my blog.
I’ll look out for that lady who asks for extra chilli sauce then. Hahahahaha.
Aiyoh…. heheheh means u never see me la. U only saw my hub and my jayden. See they are more popular than me. In fact not the first time.. many of them saw my hub and son first then only look for me. Yah, another time. Next time when u see me, u dun need to tell me who u are, can stay annon. Hahahhaha
I saw you but thought you were the maid. 😉 Well, if I pakai cantik cantik dat time, I say “Hi Sasha, I’m MG.” but when I have a bad hair day and look like something the cat dragged out dat time, then I’ll say “Hi Sasha. I’m your blog fansi. I read your blog one yunno.” Hahaha. Thats the best part of being anon. You can be anyone you want to be. lol.
I agree with you….some bloggers are closer friends than the people you see everyday…
One day, one time….
As for your daughter! Good job! Hope she will have more confindence and love for piano as well.
And your sofa bed and study room concept SURE feels comfy….esp if outside is rainy and everyone is huddled up! waaahhhh….shiok!
Because since its a diary, bloggers tend to reveal more than the average person you meet. Hahaha.
pls come up to me n say hi , i m MG if u do bump into me cos i think not many have seen u b4 right….
I’ll probably notice Philip first. Hehe.
ah, nice story to read in this early morning…:)
Yes, I often feel so closed to some of my blogging friends, like best friend, even I have never seen their faces if they never upload photos like YOU!
Here we have long easter holiday, a week, seems your idea about bed, living room and uninterrupted zone should be copied! 🙂
Happy Holidays Henny. Hope you have a good one. 🙂
Hey, if you see me, please poke me yah? You know what my daughter, hubby and me look like but I still don’t know what u look like, even your real name oso dunno….u a little too careful with posting pics in your blogs I guess….
Next time someone pokes you in the ribs in public, its probably me. Hahaha.
i wish we can have a sofa bed in study room, but the room has been taken over by maid edi and toys..
It must have been fun to see a fellow blogger at a public place 🙂
I am like you also i.e. prefer to remain anonymous. Have you ever wondered why?
Congrats to your girl on the piano exam. It’s great that she’s discovered her talent and love early!
Why? Cos’ you’re paranoid like me? Hahaha.
ahhh you beat me to it… I had always wondered if I would ever meet any blogger friends when we go out.. hehee… I’ll keep a look out for a lady who’s hubby’s searching for a WII or an electronic dictionary!
My husband doesn’t read my blog wor, so he won’t be looking for one. lol.
opps… forgot to congratulate your lil girl! hope she has a great time learning piano
She has. 🙂
Curious to know what happened next at Cold Storage. Did you put the ice-creams back? Hey next time you see my girls, do come up to me and greet me k?
Sure thing. 🙂
celebrity? Haha…yes, especially our kids. Do come say hello if u happen to see a awful and overtired looking mummy with the twin boys and specky girl yeah!
I will surely recognise your entire brood. Hahaha.
Ok my promise, if I see any blog-familiar faces, i will come up and say hi okay? I did that to Ai Lian and Karen Yiau during the Nuffnang Friso party!
Wasn’t that fun? I meant going up to them and saying hello, not the party coz I wasn’t there. Haha.
I’m speechless! But then hor….I’m not famous like Sasha 😀
Oh you are femes too in your own way. 🙂
LOL! I know exactly what you mean… I sometimes see familiar faces (especially kids) because I see their photos so often in their Mommy’s blogs… I want to say hi but feel really crazy. And my husband will ask if I knew them (because I act as if I do) but when I say no I jus follow their blogs.. He’ll give me the ‘You gotta be kiddin’ me ‘ face! LOL!
Hahaha. *Shake hands*
yeah, it would make sure I don’t look like Ah Soh before I approach the blogger. I did saw Oscar & mom at Ikea Cafe once but malu lah.. i just concentrated on my meatballs !
Hahaha. So farnee…
