I am sure pretty much everyone has heard of the song “Despacito”. It’s one of my favorites for now and I love it when this song is played during my Zumba class. It’s so fun to dance to it. When I am in the car and Despacito comes on the radio, I would start moving in my seat (I am not the driver), something like what this mom was doing in the video though I won’t get out of the car.
Have you tried drinking watermelon juice directly from a watermelon? Well, apparently this is the latest craze in this part of the world. We were walking along Jonker Street, Melaka yesterday when hubs saw a stall selling watermelon juice. The melons are mini ones and it cost RM10 each. The seller would cut a hole into the melon and blend the juice and the flesh together. Then a straw is inserted into the melon and you can slurp away.
It is quite heavy carrying a melon around but the drink is very refreshing. I only tried a sip because watermelon is very sweet and has a rather high carbohydrate content.
This is what hubs carried around Jonker Street. He could only drink half of it and then shared it with his brother who also couldn’t finish it. So if you are visiting Melaka, you may want to give this watermelon juice a try. Remember to share it with at least 3 people.
So one weekend I was at the mall and was checking out some sales items at Uniqlo. While going through the shelves, I saw a lady who was standing opposite me wearing the same top that I had on. Horror! She didn’t notice me but I quickly held a plastic bag which I was carrying to my chest to make it not so obvious that we are wearing the same top. I still haven’t done looking at the shelf so in order to continue doing what I was doing without anyone noticing, I had to do that. Pretty funny incident but a little embarrassing. I bet if I were to shop online like at kirkland store Guitar Centers, I do not have to worry about bumping into another person wearing the same outfit.
This is the black top from Padini which I wore. Gotta becareful next time.
I got a surprise when I returned home from work a few days ago.
Buffy has settled herself nicely in the living room and there was a fan blowing at her. She stays outdoor and not allowed into the house as she sheds a lot. However, when my mom opened the door to go out that day, Buffy pushed herself into the house and quickly laid down. My mom then brought a stand fan out and switched it on for her. What a spoilt pooch she is.
It is funny that some people like to talk about something which they say they are not bothered about it. That certainly makes me wonder. If you are not bothered about it, if you don’t care, then why are you still harping about it over and over again? Came across this quote which is so apt.
So this means if you are still talking about it, you are still bothered about it. Doesn’t take a genius to figure that out *wink*
So missy was absent from school last Friday due to the bad haze. The API reading was around 180 which is very unhealthy so we kept her home. Last night, I had to write a letter to her class teacher regarding her absence. She told me that it is better to write in Chinese because she ‘thinks’ her teacher doesn’t know how to read English. Of course her teacher knows how to read and write English but the silly girl thought that since she’s in a Chinese school, all correspondence should be in Chinese.
I told her I don’t know how to write a letter in Chinese so she said she would do it and then I would sign….hahahaha. Good idea and this is what she wrote :-
“Dear Teacher Chen, Ashley did not attend school because the weather was not very good. Signature : ______”. That’s my funny girl. Teacher Chen asked her why she didn’t let me write the letter and she explained that her mom doesn’t know how to write in Chinese.
Ashley loves to check out her favourite store which is no other than her school’s bookshop. Eventhough we have enough stationery at home to open our own bookshop, she would still come home with a mechanical pencil, ruler or eraser once in a while. I give her some pocket money for emergencies but she hardly buys food from the canteen. Instead, she prefers to have some retail therapy. This is what she bought last week.
Yes, a Minion Autograph Book. She has given it to her friends to write and it is so cute to see what they wrote. I’ll snap a photo of the inside when I have a chance. She won’t let me take a photo that day, only the cover *rolls eyes*
Just want to jot down this conversation that took place tonight.
Missy : “Mom, fishes don’t have eyelids right? …. and they sleep with their eyes open”
Me : *pause to think* “Yeah they don’t”
Missy : “Well, I wish I don’t have eyelids too so that my teacher won’t know when I sleep in class“.
Hubs and I burst out laughing despite the fact that missy has a serious look on her face. She just crack us up all the time.
