So…What is the worst pick-up line you have ever heard? Mine is: I thought it was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen until I gazed upon you.
Ewwwww! …. So corny!
I believe that in order to achieve “Victory Hair” the best thing is to use eyes contact or body language, not corny words.
What is “Victory Hair” you asked? Victory Hair is when a man and a woman, both with sexy hair styled, attracted to each other. They started to flirt and …BOOM! Victory Hair! Both hair ended up messy and needed to be styled again with Victory V05.
Speaking V05, have you played with their Extreme Style by VO5: Ultimate Flirting Championship?
I played the game a little while ago and it is interesting and funny. You will be grouped with another two participants to start the game.

Those questions are naughty, flirtatious. You will have fun.

Since today is Saturday, my older daughter didn’t have to go to her Kindy. Instead she went out with her grandma and grandpa.
I put blouse and new jeans on her. Normally she wore dress and never wear long pants before. When she realized that we wore a pair of jeans, her first comment was: Mama, I wore pants like Grandpa!
Since I work at home, I need an ergonomic OFFICE DESKS. I work almost 8 hour a day sitting in front of my laptop. Definitely need a good one to avoid those backache or stiff neck.
If you want one you can check spacify. They provide OFFICE DESKS with modern contemporary style. They have many choices to select from.
Oh did I mention FREE SHIPPING?
My mother in law last time, whenever she saw a baby she always commented: That baby has crossed eyes. If only one to two times, I can understand, but this is EVERY TIME.
Then when I got have first daughter, my mother in law, my mother in law’s sisters, my brother in law and my sister in law, also commented that my daughter had crossed eyes. Of course they didn’t say it in front of me directly, but I still could hear them.
I felt funny that how come they always commented crossed eyes on babies. Then I did a bit of research. Here are what I found:
Newborn babies not only have unique reflexes, but also have a number of physical characteristics and behaviors that include the following:
- Head sags when lifted up, needs to be supported
- Turns head from side to side when lying on his stomach
- Eyes are sometimes uncoordinated, may look cross-eyed
- Initially fixes eyes on a face or light then begins to follow a moving object
- Beginning to lift head when lying on stomach
- Jerky, erratic movements
- Moves hands to mouth
In my previous post, I wrote about my older daughter who loves to watch TV. Not only watching TV, she also likes to play games using my laptop. Of course the games that she plays are educational games.
It was my husband that introduced all those games to her, although actually I didn’t really approve that. The reason is because I need to use my laptop. Probably I should buy desktop for her to use.
My husband likes to play games too. He could spend the whole night played games until forgot to sleep (although he still remembered to eat!). He tried to persuade me to play, but somehow playing games does not interest me at all. I have different hobby.
Speaking of games, there is a new games released by NCSoft called “Dungeon Runners”. In this game, players can obtain magical Bling Gnome that eat their unwanted items and turn them into gold (by taking a golden squat, see picture below). Boy! How I wish I got this Bling Gnome in real life.
Anyway, you can download this game for FREE!

When I was in the hospital, just delivered my youngest daughter, one of my husband’s auntie came to visit. At that time I was nursing the baby. When she saw it, she made a comment,” Wah, why your baby is so clever, can immediately suck. Who teach her?”
Do you ever wonder how come newborn can immediately sucking, I mean who teach them?
Much of a newborn's movements and activity are reflexes or involuntary - the baby does not purposefully make these movements. As the nervous system begins to mature, these reflexes give way to purposeful behaviors.
Reflexes in newborns include the following:
Root reflex: This reflex occurs when the corner of the baby's mouth is stroked or touched. The baby will turn his/her head and opens his/her mouth to follow and "root" in the direction of the stroking.
Suck reflex: When the roof of the baby's mouth is touched with the breast or bottle nipple, the baby will begin to suck. This reflex does not begin until about the 32nd week of pregnancy and is not fully developed until about 36 weeks.
Moro reflex: The Moro reflex is often called a startle reflex because it usually occurs when a baby is startled by a loud sound or movement. In response to the sound, the baby throws back his/her head, throws out his/her arms and legs.
Tonic neck reflex: When a baby's head is turned to one side, the arm on that side stretches out and the opposite arm bends up at the elbow. This is often called the "fencing" position.
Grasp reflex: With the grasp reflex, stroking the palm of a baby's hand causes the baby to close his/her fingers in a grasp. The grasp reflex lasts only a couple of months and is stronger in premature babies.
Babinski reflex: With the Babinski reflex, when the sole of the foot is firmly stroked, the big toe bends back toward the top of the foot and the other toes fan out. This is a normal reflex until the child is about 2 years old.
Step reflex: This reflex is also called the walking or dance reflex because a baby appears to take steps or dance when held upright with his/her feet touching a solid surface.
This is conversation between me and hubby:
Hubby: What are you doing in front of computer there?
Me: Oh, I am checking out other people's blog
Hubby: Why do you like to read other people's blog so much? Better you take care of your baby
Me: Wah! There is a new blog dedicated about car!
Hubby: Where, Where...! I want to see!
If you are crazy about car, or you know somebody that crazy about car (your father, brother, or husband), there is a new site dedicated to blog about car called Modded Autos. Check them up!
MA (short for ModdedAutos.com) was founded on March 3rd, 2008 by Joe Hayes. Their goal is to ultimately provide wide coverage of all automobile makes and models, as well as motorcycles and ATV’s.
You can join their forum there and meet and discuss about car with car enthusiast all over the world.
On the last check up, my younger daughter weight was become 4.43 kg or 9.77 pounds. At birth she was 3.2 kg or 7.05 pounds. It means she gains about 2.72 pounds or about 33 ounces.
Here the article about newborn weight that I found:
In the first month of life, babies usually catch up and surpass their birthweight, then steadily continue to gain weight. A weight loss up to about 10 percent of birthweight is normal in the first two to three days after birth. However, the baby should have gained back to his/her birthweight by about the 10th or 11th day. While all babies may grow at a different rate, they should gain about 1 ounce each day up to 1 month of age.
Thus I think my baby surpass that 1 ounce a day gain.
Anyway, when I asked my pediatrician whether my baby is overweight, since she wants to drink milk all the time, she laugh and said that my baby weight is normal. She said that the first 3 months baby tend to drink a lot, but after that she might refused to drink milk. Thus, give her milk when she wants it now, since this is the opportunity to gain weight.
Long time ago, when I went for holiday to Europe, Holland was my first country destination. This was my first overseas trip and I was so excited. It was spring time, and all the flowers were blooming nicely.
Then, I saw the famous flower, the one that I had been reading about and only abled to see it in the magazines. The Tulips! In real person… or should I say… in real flower…….Hahahahaha!
They are everywhere and so many colors. I believe I took so many photos of them with me posed in front of them like a model. Too bad, all the photos are in my parent’s house, otherwise I can scan it to post here.
History of Tulip
Do you know that tulip, introduced to Europe in the middle of the 16th century from the Ottoman Empire, experienced a strong growth in popularity in the United Provinces (now the Netherlands), boosted by competition between members of the upper classes for possession of the rarest tulips. Competition escalated until prices reached very high levels.
Where to Buy
Anyway, I found this site called GoodBulbs.com that selling Tulip bulbs. Their tulips bulbs come in from Holland, the Netherlands, at the beginning of the planting season. This means that if they sell out of a variety, it is almost surely gone for the year. So the only way to be sure you can get the kinds of tulips you want is to pre-order - before the ship sails from Holland.
You also can order their new Tulip Gardener Starter Kit. This has bulbs, fertilizer, a planter, and a pair of gloves. All this is packed in an eco-friendly 100%-cotton mesh reusable grocery bag.

My older daughter is a TV junkie. She spends most of her time in front of TV watching cartoon at least 3 hours a day. I know this is not a good habit, but I got things done when she watched TV.
Last time when I was a kid, I rarely watched TV. I spent most of my time playing outside with my cousins and neighbor friends. I lived in a “kampong” and my cousins live nearby. While our mothers were cooking and cleaning, we were playing outside until time for lunch.
According to a study from 2006, 79 % of US-American childrenh ave watched television before their 2nd birthday, while 43 % of these children watch television on a daily basis. According
to another study conducted in the United States, 2- to 3-year-olds consume 2 1/2 hours of television per dayand 82 minutes of video in addition to that. The total media consumption
per day thus adds up to 322 minutes.
Now the question : is watching tv beneficial or harmful?
There is a review of research literature about this topic if you are interested to read further.
What are you planning to do in October? Yup, what I mean is on Halloween night. Do you plan to wear any costume? I don’t think I am going to wear any. I am too old to wear any sexy halloween costumes. However it doesn’t stop me to search for ideas to make Halloween costume for my daughters.
Instead of finding idea, look what I have found: An online Halloween costume shop called Costume Cauldron. They have wide selections of costumes. They have costume for infant and pet also. Why infant and pet need to wear costume? Infant is cute enough, why do they need to suffocate themselves wearing costume.
Look at below photo for the sample of their selection:
I don’t think it’s cute. Yes, the model is cute, but that's it. The costume itself is not very cute. I can make costume cuter than that. Yes! No problem. I know how to sew. The only problem is I can not sew straight. However, I don’t think it’s a big deal. Who will inspect the costume anyway, right?
How about this sexy halloween costumes for me?
Yeah sure! I need to exercise my abs to be able to wear this costume. I don’t think they sold many of thos costume anyway. Not many people have the body to be able to wear it. Hmmm, probably I can ask for lower price.
As for my husband, I think I will buy this one:
Hahahahaha! Very ugly costume. No need to buy one, just ask him to wear his pajamas, white shirt, and his “too tight” vest. As for the mask. No need to wear mask, I think he looks like Shrek already.
If you want to see what other “Ugly” selections they have, you can go to their site and have fun look through all the costumes. After all it’s Halloween, and Halloween is a joyous occasion and wearing costumes during Halloween will lift anyone’s spirits including yours.
My younger daughter is a very good girl. She sleeps most of the time. For example, today she woke up at 7 in the morning crying for her milk. After drinking her milk she was back to sleep again until 11. After drinking her milk, she poo-poo and immediately after done with her business, she went back to sleep again with poo-poo inside her diaper and all.
If guaranteed all children are like her, I don't mind to have a quadruple.

DD: Then why you got hole?
Me: Huh? What hole?
DD: There, there is hole there.
DD: On your forehead, between your eyebrows.
Because I got headache, I was frowning, which caused the “holes” in between my eyebrows.

I received this email from my husband:
It works 100% of the time although the scientists at the Canada Research council (who discovered it) aren't sure why.
To stop nighttime coughing in a child (or adult as we found out personally), put Vicks Vaporub generously on the bottom of the feet at bedtime, thencover with socks. Even persistent, heavy, deep coughing will stop in about 5 minutes and stay stopped for many, many hours of relief.
Works 100% of the time and is more effective in children than even very strong prescription cough medicines. In addition it is extremely soothing and comforting and they will sleep soundly.
It was a surprising finding and found to be more effective than prescribed medicines for children at bedtime, in addition to have a soothing and calming effect on sick children who then went on to sleep soundly.
An adult friend tried it on herself when she had a very deep constant and persistent cough a few weeks ago and it worked 100%! She said that it felt like a warm blanket had enveloped her, coughing stopped in a few minutes and believe me, this was a deep, ( incredibly annoying!) every few seconds uncontrollable cough, and she slept cough-free for hours every night that she used it.
So, if you have kids/grandchildren, pass it on. If you end up sick, try yourself and you will be absolutely amazed.
I think it worth to try. I will definately try this the next time my children cough.

Last week, somehow I managed to get my original weight back. I can wear back all my old clothes. My gynea asked me how I managed to get back my original weight so fast? To tell you the truth, I don’t have secret recipe. I only gain 10 kg when I was pregnant. It’s all in the tummy. When the baby is out, I only have 5 kg to reduce, and now all gone.
Actually, since I was teenager I was always under weight. Even I ate a lot, I still could not gain weight. If I am not wrong, I was only 42 kg, and my height is 162 cm. Only when I lived in US, I gain some weight to become 48 kg, and I maintain it until now.
I don’t exercise. At one time, when I walked every morning with my hubby, my weight reduced to 46 kg. Then when I got pregnant, the first few months I got bad morning sickness. I lost weight further, until my gynea asked me to eat more, or eat whatever food I fancy. At that time, my hubby had to think hard to persuade me to eat. Since all the food that I craved he could not find in Malaysia, he searched for the recipe in the internet and cooked for me.
Anyway, I am happy that I don’t have overweight problem.
It’s been almost 7 years since I become stay at home mom. Previously I was working in the cookware company as a brand manager. I travelled a lot overseas, met a lot of interesting people, did product launching, sometimes I could see myself in the newspaper. It’s a very busy life and yet very interesting.
When I got married with my husband, I had to move to different country since he is from Malaysia and I am from Indonesia. Then I had my first daughter. Life is totally different since then. From working woman, now I am become a housewife and a mother. But one thing is the same. I still can earn money.
If you have blog and want to earn some money, you can join SocialSpark. Not only you can meet with blogger (some of them also stay at home mommy), you can also take the opportunity to write paid post. Minimum is USD 5 per post.

You still can look after your children yourself, you don’t have to spend additional money to send your children to daycare, and the most important thing is that you won’t miss any precious moments (first smile, first word, first step, etc).
Normally, after all my children are sleeping, I write these paid posts. It doesn’t take much time to write, and you do in the comfort of your home wearing pajamas. So what are you waiting for? Start blogging and join SocialSpark.
My Newborn is one month old today. She is asking for milk every 3 hours. Sometimes less than 3 hours she’s already screamed. Every feed is about 90 ml or 3 oz. Thus total feed for 24 hours is about 21 to 24 oz. It is a lot for one month old baby, don’t you think?
When she was just born she was only 3.2 kg and 50 cm long. I don’t know her weight now, but I am pretty sure she gains a lot. Tomorrow we are going to see her pediatrician for check up and to get her second hepatitis B injection.
Actually she was much smaller than her sister. Her sister was 3.6 kg and 56 cm long when she was born. So probably she drinks a lot of milk in order to catch up.
Before I had my oldest daughter, I had to travelling a lot. Every year I had to go to Chicago, US to attend cookware show. My company had an exhibition booth there, where I had to stand there the whole day to meet our existing customers and showed them our new products, however, beside that we were also hoping to get new customers. It’s a very big exhibition and the participants were from all over the world. The competition was tough, thus your booth must be attractive to get potential customer to stop by. In fact not only attractive, your booth must be represent your product, your company and your image.
I knew this because I got first hand experience. I attended the same exhibition every year since I started join the company. The first few years, we did not really see the importance of the exhibition display, and also because the cost quite expensive to build one. Only later on, we realized that an effective exhibition display will pay more than the cost.
The best exhibition design is the one that can effectively displaying your product and manage to convey your company mission to your potential customer. The result, you will get more potential customer stop by and in the end you will get profitable long term relationship.
If you interested to make one, you should see this site. I saw that they have very creative Bespoke and custom built exhibition stands. You can see their photo gallery and their design gallery to get the feel of their designs. If you are interested, you can get free quote and brochures from them.
They claim to be able to design exhibition display that are both the most efficient and most cost effective possible and deliver to you a stand of balance where your face to face meetings will flourish into profitable relationship, which what we are all looking for.

DD: Oh, you have baby inside your tummy?
DD: Why do you swallow the baby?
Me: ***scratching my head****

When my older daughter born, this question never occurred to me, so somehow I never gave her any plain water. However, later on, I sometimes saw a mother gave her baby plain water. Then it hits me. Does baby, specially newborn, need plain water beside the one already mixed in the formula milk?
Then the other day, my mother in law told me to give my new born daughter plain water, since she “seems thirsty”.
I tried to googled that question, and this is my findings:
Baby less than 6 months are not suppose to drink plain water. They should have enough water from the one that mixed in the formula milk or from your breast milk. The reason is because water has no nutrient and giving water will fills their tummy so they don’t want any milk.
Of course, if your baby has constipation, or some other problem and your pediatrician advise you to give extra plain water, you must follow.
Do you like to see magic show? I do. I think most people like to see magic show. Either you are a kid or an adult, you must have seen a magic show before or even want to become a magician.
If you like magic show, you must see Criss Angel show called CRISS ANGEL Believe, which is a new illusion-based Cirque du Soleil production at the Vegas. The opening date is in September 2008. The countdown clock featured on Angel's official website is counting down to September 12, 2008 as a premiere. Preview performances for CRISS ANGEL Believe begin September 1 and run through September 11.
Same like Harry Houdini, Criss Angel is also an escapologist. However, besides that, he is also a musician, a stunt performer, and an actor (he is best known for starring in his own television show, Criss Angel Mindfreak). It is no surprise that unlike traditional magic-themed shows, CRISS ANGEL Believe™ transcends any preconceived notion of what it means to be emotionally engaged by the arts of mysticism and illusion. Imagine a fantasy, an allegory, a highly theatrical tableau of mood, reverie and emotion set against a backdrop of dreamlike darkness and light.
Also, there is a contest to win 2 tickets to this show. Text “Believe” to 22122, hopefully you can win the ticket to see Criss Angel.
When I was studying in US in 1995, I was always in the constant look for cheap international calling card. Specially in the first few months. I missed home terribly and I still do not have friends. I lived in the dormitory and if I called international phone call using the dormitory phone the phone bill will be skyrocket. I did that the first month, and you don’t want to know how much that cost me (or should I say, cost my parent).
Later, I learned that you could buy international calling card, and you will get cheaper rate. I still remember that I managed to get calling card with rate only 30 cent/minute to call to my country in Indonesia. This is very cheap if you compare with USD 3/min if I called from my dormitory phone.
Today, I found this site, which selling international prepaid online phone cards. Finding and buying a cheap phone card or calling card online can be frustrating. They make this daunting task easy with their pre-sorted international calling cards. If you type in the country that you want to call, they will list for you all the calling card to that country complete with the rate and ratings (regarding quality, billing and connection).
I tried to type “Indonesia”, and I got hundreds of calling card showed up. The rate is as low as 1.5 cents. WOW! That is unbelievable. If you decided to buy, they will be delivered online instantly, so you can directly make a call.
Not only that, at this moment they have 3% cashback promotion. It means that for every dollar you spent to buy calling card in their site, you will get 3% back.
They also have live support chat, in case you have problem with your calling card.
I really wish that there is such like this site when I was studying in US last time. It saved me a lot of money.
I will bookmark this site anyway, in case I need to go to US for business.

If you are using soap bar, don’t throw away when the bar become too small. You still can use it until finish. How?
You soak the soap with water about 5 minutes, or until become slightly soft. Now, you can attach that small bar of soap with the new one by pressing it together until the small soap stick together to a new one. Now you can use the new bar soap as usual. When the new one become too small, you can repeat the process.
With this method, you have always used up your bar soap until it is totally gone.
Recently, I got a wholesale order from one of yarn shop in US. This order required me to print out my pattern. Now, average my pattern has 20 pages. I got total order 20 patterns. Thus total that I have to print was 400 pages. All full color. Now, this is my first experience of selling wholesale, thus, I have to calculate my cost before I can quote my price to the buyer.
After calculating, I found out that the ink was the main factor of the final cost. We all know that ink cartridge cost a lot.
However, I found this company that sells very cheap cartridge. I normally bought color ink cartridge for my Canon Pixma Inkjet for USD 25, they price only USD 7.49,- Yes, you read correctly! It’s 70% cheaper!
To tell you the truth, before read their warranty, I am skeptical about their ink quality. What is their warranty you ask?
Price: If you find the exact same Pacific Ink product for less somewhere else we will refund you 100% of the difference (the price guarantee does not apply to printer manufacturer (OEM) brand cartridges).
Quality: If for any reason you are not satisfied with the quality of the printer cartridge you purchased from Pacific Ink, we will replace it right away or provide your money back - no questions asked. We offer this guaranteed 65 days from the day you make your purchase.
Your Printer: We guarantee your printer! We are so confident in the quality of the printer cartridges we offer that if a licensed technician determines that a cartridge purchased from Pacific Ink is the direct source of any problem with your printer we will replace your printer or reimburse you for the repair at our cost. Reimbursement will be made up to $100.00. Any repairs exceeding $100.00 will not be reimbursed unless authorized in writing by Pacific Ink prior to repairs being made.
Besides canon ink cartridges, they also carry epson ink cartridges , dell printer cartridges, and others too. You should check it out yourself. They have a very large selection.
Since my husband is back from Europe last Sunday until now, he still could not get over his jetlag. At night could not sleep, only able to sleep about 6 in the morning and only woke up at noon.
Based on my experienced travelling to different country with time difference, I notice that normally I did not have any problem with Jetlag when I was there, but when I arrived back home, I always have problem adjusting the time. I don’t know why.
Anyway, because hubby can not wake up in the morning, nobody drive my daughter go to her kindy. It happen also that my father in law car need to be repaired for a whole week. Thus, he also can not drive her.
Hopefully everything back to normal next week.

There are a lot of story there. I particularly like the story about Chad and Michelle Bush.
Chad was a coach for youth sports and together the family participated in projects to rebuild low-income homes. But in the process of teaching their children to be community minded, the Bushes got a lesson themselves from their five-year-old daughter, Reilly.
Reilly was a little girl, full of life, whose sincerity was "way beyond her years," says her dad, Chad. It wasn't unusual to see her give away brand-new gifts to kids who she thought needed them more. Using her favorite word, she taught her family that life is "stupendous." When Reilly passed away unexpectedly from cardiac arrest from complications with the flu in 2007, her parents knew that they had to carry on her "life is stupendous" lesson.
Three weeks after the tragic loss of Reilly, Chad and Michelle made a commitment to give back to the community that had helped them in their time of need, and set up a foundation in Reilly's name. The Reilly C. Bush Memorial Foundation was established to carry on Reilly's spirit and to enrich the community by teaching children to help other children.
It’s a very empowering story and it makes you realized that we, normal people, can make a different. So do you!
Look the ad that I got by email today:
It says there: Originated from Turkey's hot springs, Garra Rufa fish is known for their specialty to nibble away dead skins and helps to bring the glow back. They are also known for their therapeutic micro massages once you get pass the ticklish sensations.
For me this is something new. I never knew this until I read that Ad. However, when I google "Garra Rufa Fish" there are quite a lot info about this, including information in Wikipedia.
My friend just told me that she is going to have Lasik. When I told my husband about it and asked him whether he is interested to have Lasik, he said that Lasik is for rich people, or for woman who wants to look pretty. As for him, well, he is happy with his glasses and no need to spend a fortune to do Lasik.
Although his argument seems make sense, however, if you add up the cost for glasses, exams, contacts, solutions, in the long run Lasik is not so bad.
Lasik in Walnut Creek, there are no down payment, no-interest financing is available and you can apply online so you know if you qualify even before you make an appointment. Payments are about $60 a month.
Lasik is not for everyone, but recovery is relatively quick, there is virtually no pain, and about 12 million people have had laser vision correction. Complications can happen, but are relatively rare.
Everything is getting more expensive. Since the government increased the price of the petrol, everything also went up. Previously my older daughter milk is RM 70 plus, now become RM 80 plus. It’s almost 15% increase.
My mother in law complained. She said that in the morning when she went to buy groceries, the price is still OK, then in the evening, when she went again (the same store), the price of the same item suddenly already increased.
Now, how about salary?
Last time, when my older daughter just learned to crawl, she liked to crawl everywhere. I got this really crazy idea. I was thinking, if I tied up a mop on each of her legs and her hands, she could clean the whole house when she was crawling. Thus, she could have fun crawling, and also get the job done. Hahahahaha! Had you ever think the same idea like me?
