Holiday mood.......

A lot of people in my office has gone on leave during the last 2 weeks of the year but I'm not one of them as I don't have any plans. So I've decided to carry forward my entitlement to next year which means I'll have a total of 23.5 days then, YAY! :)

Actually I don't mind to come to work during these 2 weeks, simply because:
1. The traffic to & fro office is so smooth.
2. The eateries are not so packed during lunch hour.
3. Office is so peaceful & quite since half of the people are gone.
4. Last but not least, bosses are not around, hehehe. :)

Blogging has became so popular in today’s world and it is like a trend now for people to own a blog. Some people might think it is complicated to create their personal online journal and just simply doesn’t know how to do it.

In fact there are a lot of free online blogging community that offers free hosting to online journal and they have make it so simple for anyone to create their very own online journal.

For those who like to write and wanted to share their thoughts with others from around the world, the blogging community is the best platform to start with.

Caregiving to elderly people

Nowadays, a lot of women are working instead of being a housewife and so if there are elderly people in the family, more often they will be the ones staying at home. If the elderly ones are physically and mentally fit, it is fine as they can still take care of themselves. But if that is not the case, most likely we’ll need a caregiver to look after them while we are away.

Depending on individual situation, choosing the right caregiver to provide appropriate care to the elderly people is very important. We have to survey and read on the caregiving information and then decide what the best arrangement we could possibly do for our loved ones. The caregivers resources are also available which will help us to get the caregiving services we need so much easier.

To better understand the health condition of the elderly, we can also study the caregiving information which enables us to know the symptoms and stages of the sickness and learn on how to provide proper care to them. Family support and care is equally important to the elderly in helping them to live on happily.

Planning for holiday trip

This is a sponsored post.

Many in my office are not working during the last week of the year as they are clearing annual leaves to go for holiday. As for myself, I’m also planning for a family trip to a local destination during the Chinese New year period in February 08.

Instead of going to travel agencies, I prefer to plan my trip and do the Hotel Reservations via Internet because I find it easier and faster. I can compare the room rates offered by different travel website and choose the one with most competitive rates and great discounts. After the reservation is made, payment will also be done online and that’s it. Planning a holiday trip can be so simple and hassle free.

Annual Dinner

It was my company's 10th year anniversary dinner on last Friday, 14th Dec 07. The theme of this year is "Glamorous" and everyone is supposed to dressed to kill for the night. In view of that, boss actually allows us to leave the office as early as 3.30pm on Friday so that we'll have ample time to dress up.

I went to Jantzen for hairdo and then Bobbi Brown for make over, and reached the venue, Saffron @ One Bangsar around 7.30pm with my other colleagues.

Me in purple long dress, posing at the red carpet entrance.

Me with my other gorgeous colleagues.

I got a Robomop from the lucky draw, which I think could be more useful to my maid and not me, since I'm not the one doing house work, haha LOL.

Choosing the web host

This is a sponsored post.

Blogging has become very popular nowadays and I noticed that many who started their blog on free web host has slowly migrated to their own domain, maybe because it’s more personalize and easier to manage in that way. But anyhow, I am also hoping that I could have my own domain one day.

There are so many web host offering different plans and packages out there and it’s not easy to decide which one to go with especially people who have fair knowledge about web hosting like me. In this case has provided a great source of information on web hosting. Not only that we can learn from A to Z about web hosting by referring to the quick start guide and FAQ section, we can also find the web hosts that provides the features that we need by searching through the web hosting plans directory. Advanced search will also be able to help us to find the specific web host that meets our every single requirement.

Happy Birthday to Dillon

It's Dillon's 2nd birthday today.

In compensation of not having a birthday bash for him, mummy took a day off (too bad daddy has to work) to accompany the birthday boy.

We woke up around 8am and after we drop off daddy at his office at 9.30am, I decided to bring Dillon to One Utama since heard that the christmas decor there is very nice. And true enough, the decor in both new wing and old wing are beautiful and the theme are very attractive to kids.

Dillon was happily running around and I was so tired running after him and I end up have to borrow a stroller from the customer service counter so that I could do some shopping peacefully. I bought some new year clothing for Dillon & Kaith. I have also bought a birthday cake for Dillon. After late lunch, we left the mall at about 3pm.

At night when daddy came home from work, we sang the birthday song and cut the cake together. Before we could finish singing the song, we already have to light up the candles a few times because Dillon was so excited and he just couldn't wait to blow off the candles again & again. LOL

Wondering why Kaith isn't in the pictures? Because she has fell asleep during cake cutting. :)

Care homes

A few of my colleagues has gone to distribute food bags to the poor recently. Most of these poor people have families but there is one old lady who is already more than 70 years old, also have cataract problem and her husband died about 2 weeks ago so now she is all alone.

Although some of her neighbors try to keep a look out for her at times but no one could look after her all day long. Sometimes she is starving because she is not capable to cook, in fact my colleague didn't think that she is capable to take good care of herself. She also mentioned that she is just so lonely nowadays and hoping to see more people visiting and talk to her.

Therefore the best we think we could do is to send her to care homes because she could live in a better environment and would b well taken care by the staff at care homes. She will also have people to accompany her and she won't feel so lonely anymore.

My bag

This picture is taken at my office pantry, and this is my cooler bag, which I'd carry to work with me everyday. I bought this bag from Fabulous mum, and it comes with ice sheets. The bag (with ice sheets) is insulated to keep the milk chilled for up to 12 hours and it comes with separate pocket to keep the breastpump and accessories. Some of my colleagues even mistaken it as a camera bag, hahaha LOL.

Birthday present for Dillon

Dillon will be turning 2 next few days and he has been longing to have a tricycle, everytime we pass by the toys section, he will point at them and wanted to ride on one.

Thus I have bought this tricycle for him. As Dillon still doesn't know how to pedal the tricycle, I tied a rope in front to pull him for time being.

He was fascinated when he saw this present, the sweetest part is that he points at it and keep saying "mummy, mummy" (he means that mummy bought this for him), this is the priceless moment. :)

Online casino reviews

There are so many online casinos out there for online poker gambling and each has different features and game structure and graphics. Before we sign up with any of these sites,we would of course like to know which one offers the best game play experience.

It is when we need to visit the review site to find out the top poker room online. The review site provides comprehensive information regarding the particular online casino which includes an overview of the site, payout percentage, bonus and promotions. It also has ratings on the software, trust factors such as security, fair play, customer support, deposit and withdrawal options. I think these are important things that most people would look into before singing up with any online casino for online gambling.

What's more, the review site has offered sign up bonus on their review page whereby whoever register through the site link, bonuses will be credited accordingly.
