When I grow up ... ...

Mama ask me what I want to be when I grow up... ...
I've been thinking for days ... ...

& I knew the answer yesterday !!

Let me walk you through my future workplace, come over here ... ...


These are the navigation buttons, here is left, this one is right !!

This is the emergency button, press only when required !!

When all ready, sit down.... back straight, chest UP & legs wide OPEN. Let me demonstrate. See how I do it in the picture?


Then, hold on to the steering wheels using BOTH hands, CANNOT use single hand to control. Its dangerous ...

This is how you turn your hands if you want to turn to the right.
Don't get it? Ok, let me show you from another angle below.


This is how you adjust your hands on your wheels to make that right turn. Get it?
GOOD !!

What do you think? Can I passed off as a ...

PILOT when I grow up? :)

What do you think?

Free voucher, you make me busy !!


Eating this fruit sundae from Haagan Dazs was not an easy attempt....
All bcos this Fri is the last day to use the S$10 voucher I redeemed from Starhub.
I have been conveniently forgetting to use it until the last min. I quickly bring the boys out seeing that it is a good weather to have some cold dessert.

We travelled 2 hrs to & fro just bcos mama wanted to use the vouchers... sorry kiddos... LOL!!
The nearest outlet from our house is that far by bus. *sob*

Actually, if I were to take into account the travel fare & time (time is money mah!!) it is actually not worth the rush down ....

But bcos the voucher is to redeem Zac's favourite dessert. I felt like I have to make it for him... :D


Luckily, it was really yummylicious.... within mins, Zac gobbled up ALL :)~~~


Seeing his satisfied look made me felt that ALL is worthwhile ... ....

Moral of the story : Don't wait till the last min to use your vouchers :)

I can eat by myself

Zac loves to eat sausages & eggs.
This was a good example of what we had prepared for him as breakfast this morning.

3/4 cup of passionfruit yogurt, 1 egg, 2 sausages & 1 slice of enriched white bread all
cut into pieces.


2 mins later.....



ALL the sausages are gone !!


Another 3 mins later ....




The eggs are gone too ... ONLY left with the bread. He refused to eat the bread.
This will happen if we left him to eat by himself.
He will finished up all the sausages & eggs.


The bread will not be wasted though cos Amos will the one who finish up what bro Zac left behind....hehehe ;p

Helping a FRIEND find her FRIEND ...


The below is extracted from Nafasg & I am their proud partner :)
------
We hope that you can spare some of your time reading this article. It would mean a lot to one of our good friends in the blogosphere, if you can help her in this. Our good friend named Sandy is currently searching for a person whom she had always regarded as her best friend. They were very close to each other, until a conflict between them arose. Ever since then, both of them lost touch of each other. It has been nine long years since they last communicated with each other, and Sandy is deeply affected by her best friend’s absence. Her greatest wish right now is to reunite with her best friend and be close to her like before.


SandyG

Sandy's best friend’s name is Judy Sanford and is staying with her husband named Mike. According to Sandy, she was last found to be staying in California. Whether she is still staying in California or not is still a question mark. But you could be the person to answer the question!If you happened to know Judy and her whereabouts, kindly inform Sandy directly via her blog. Even if you have never heard of Judy, you can still do your part by spreading this heartfelt message via your blogs.Your immediate response to this message is greatly appreciated. What we are doing may be something small, but if all of us can put our hands together and be part of the search, it can bring two best friends together again after nine long years. Sandy, please be strong in going through this obstacle in your life. Have great faith that miracles can happen, always look on the bright side of life, and believe that your long awaited wish could come true. We are here for you and will do our best to help you. Judy, if you are reading this, please contact Sandy as soon as possible. She really misses you and wants to make up for the lost times. Let bygones be bygones. Hope that you will reciprocate Sandy’s feelings as soon as you can.

I signed up for PPP!

I have seen PayPerPost(PPP) badges everywhere in the blogoshere. So I registered PPP 1 month after I started blogging. However, my blog was rejected because the requirement is to have blogged for at least 3 months. During these 3 months of blogging, I met a lot of new friends & they too encourage me to give it a try again when my requirement has been met, to earn some extra money. I have seen their PPP success & they told me that it’s a great marketplace for blog advertising. I tried my luck upon my 3.5 months into blogging. Yipee! I am officially a proud member now!



PayPerPost, better known as PPP is a new self-service marketplace for bloggers to get paid to blog about things that they love and for advertisers to get their product, service or website reviewed and drive traffic to your website. If you’re above 18, already have 3 months old blog with at least 20 posts and willing to disclose a relationship with PPP, then you’re a good candidate. The best part is that there is no quota that I need to fulfill. Once your blog is approved, you can start looking out for opportunities to write and be paid via Paypal. It's really easy.

I am planning to save up my earnings to upgrade a new notebook. Haha, looks like a long way to go isn't it? This is just my first step & I am looking forward to doing more.

Are you a member of PayPerPost yet? If not, just fill in the below form below.
Sign up now and earn $20 for your first paid post! GOOD LUCK!

Answer : What caused this ?

..... continued from yesterday's post Question : What caused this ?

Thank you so much for all who gave their thoughts on what could have caused the boy's mark on the nose :

1) Bobby - Insect bite or scraped his nose diving in a pool or cheap metal frame sunglasses
2) Nafa - His parent's bite, boy drew mark himself during arts class
3) Speedycat - Onion scratch
4) Jerry - Durian scratch
5) Adrian/Nick/Blur Ting/Jesse/Efendi/ - Fork
6) Conan_cat - Fell down & scratch himself
7) Jesse - Drew the mark himself
8) Karen - Mosquitoe bite
9) Roger - Bat bite
10) Sam - Cat bite

What could be the REAL CAUSE??

WARNING : please do not proceed to view if you have a WEAK HEART !!


IT is indeed caused by a household fork. *click to enlarge*

Those who chose this answer. Have you thought that he was being poke like what you see in the picture?

I cannot believe my own eyes when I receive this from my friend yesterday morning. I thought I better share my readers of such a hazardous household tools back home !!




Be mindful the next time you see little children handle such things. Luckily the boy in the picture is alright. Can you imagine if it wasn't his nose but eyes? OMG !!

Really SHOCKING right !!

2007-08-20

Question : What cause this?

I got this from a friend via email.

There are 2 parts to it. This is the question to you.

Study the marks the boy is pointing at, and try to guess what caused it. *click to enlarge*

For those who have seen the pic & knew the answer, please drop me an email instead.
Don't post your answer here so that others can make their guess. Thanks :)
I will reveal the answer tomorrow :)

Feel Free to LINK ME

I met wonderful people online here who constantly lend me a helping hand.
Recently, there are a few friends who created link button for my blog.
For those who know how to create all these, you may think they are nothing worth to mention. However, I am weak at all these & the buttons are something all along I wanted to do since I started blogging 3 mths ago.
They are meaningful to me and I deeply appreciate their effort. :)

Endoh from Pure Endoh Ranting created this :

this is a miracle...



Jean from A Great Pleasure created this :

this is a miracle...



These 2 are done by Bobby from revellian.com :
