Favourite Quote of The Week #14 2015 - Marriage Relationship

“What you are as a single person, you will be as a married person, only to a greater degree. Any negative character trait will be intensified in a marriage relationship, because you will feel free to let your guard down -- that person has committed himself to you and you no longer have to worry about scaring him off.”
Josh McDowell

Why We Do Not Have A Phone in Our House

My baby girl has a toy phone at home. Sadly, it is broken. Every baby that I know LOVES telephone. And this is what my baby girl did when she sees one. She happily chatting with someone whom I don't know and all I heard was, "EYYO", "BYE". The rest of the conversation doesn't exist in Google translate.



Me: Rania, did you do this?

Her reply?

 
P/S: How can I not scold her when she gave me that face?

Family Picture


 
Thinking of getting us a GoPro. It would be lovely if everyone can fit in and someone is not CROPPED!
 
Picture was taken on Sunday 29th March, 11.50AM at Avillion Admiral Cove, Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan. The 34 years old parents, the 11 years old boy, 3 year old girl and 16 months old baby girl.

Our Lunch Date

2015 will be our 5th year together. But I only had known to have 'lunch date' with Mr. Fruitheart after three kids! When it was one, we can have our date anytime. After the second one was born, it gets a little bit hard. And when we have our last baby, it become harder. We have three tiny people in between us. HAHA.

Since we are working near each other, we can plan our lunch date. The plan is to have once or twice a month. Yesterday, we had our lunch date at Little Penang Kafe, KLCC. We reached there at around 11.45AM and the place were quite full. Wait till you see the crowd at 12.15PM. People willing to queue for 15 minutes!
 
 
He looks slimmer in this picture. He had Jawa mee and ice coffee. He is so into coffee and nescafe now.
 

And here is the lovely wife. She is forever slim even after three children. I am trying to get 50KG, but the weigh machine still tells me I am 46. Blergh!

I had curry mee and air bandung. That pink coloured water. We had pie tee as side dish, yummy!

Total: RM 49.30
Service Charge 10%: RM 4.25
Government tax 6%: RM 2.55

P/S: GST approching soon, tomorrow 1st April. 6 % GST will be replacing SST - Sales Service Tax. So next time we come here, I want hope I will not see the 10% service charge. *wink*

Week 14 already? Yeah, March gonna end soon and it is less than 100 days to Ramadhan 2015. And I am going to be thirty-4 in 2 month! Sheesh.

I went to bed at 12 last night. My groceries from TESCO online came pretty late, at 1030PM. And some of my orders are not there too. I should have just go to sleep after the guy came, but the I wanted to know who the killer is in CSI. HAHA. Terus segar bugar mata kan.

I managed to get 2 days of fasting. Yay! I have another 6 days to go. A bit disappointed when I didn't get the chance to try out the new breakfast recipe that I have saved. I may need more than 24 hours a day to cover. HEHE.

Here are this week's goals:

Mothering/Marriage/Family:
Less yelling and listen more to my children. (You don't know how guilty I am on this one!)
Lunch date with husband.
Hug and say I love you to my children and husband any time of the day.
Spend less time on chores so I can concentrate on the children.

Home management:
Figure out our 2 weeks meal plan and organize shopping list.
Cook for our 2 weeks meal.

Clean the ceiling fan in our bedroom.


Personal:
Make up the day that I missed fasting on last year's Ramadhan.

Try new recipe for breakfast.
Continue reading 50 Shades of Grey. (Managed to get 5 pages.)

************************************************************************************************************

Mothering/Marriage/Family:
Spend quality and fun time with family members on our short trip. (Weekend at PD!).
Set appointment with Cambridge for boy's placement test.
Say I love you to my children and husband any time of the day.

Home management:
Plan week #14 meals.

Personal:
Try new recipe for breakfast.

P/S: Sticking to goals can be hard. You can do it! Mind to share what's your goal?

Short Stay at The Avillion Admiral Cove, Port Dickson

Our first mini holiday for this year. More to come as Mr. Fruitheart promised me. *wink and smile broadly*

We stayed for 1 night at Avillion Admiral Cove, Port Dickson. It was a really nice place to stay. Our room was not ready when we came at 3PM. We have to wait for about 20 minutes. So we enjoyed looking at the yachts. That feeling of rich and famous suddenly came to mind. HAHA.
 
 
8th floor, king size bed fits the parents and their 2 small daughters. One extra bed for the boy. He also can fit on the king size bed, but he chose not to sleep with his sisters who will then kick his face. Room is clean, spacious, well furnished and beautifully decorated. We liked it very much. My children loves hotel. So the first thing they did was exploring the room.
 
 
 
At 5PM, we went down to the pool. Unfortunately, it was raining. Everyone was stuck not knowing what to do next. Luckily, there is a Child Room and it was opened. So we had fun doing indoor activities. My boy and girl did sand art, it was RM5 each for the smaller ones. RM10 for the big one. Why can't it be FREE?


They have those Play stations and Nintendo which my boy is so happy to see it. It costs RM20 per session which I said NO. We do not come down here all they way from KL to play with those things I told him. I get the I-wish-I-have-a-cool-mom-who-says-YES kind of disappointment face.
 
 
Well, they have fun after all. At 6, it stopped raining and we had our quality time in the pool. And the pool was full with kids - screaming, shouting and splashing water with each other. However, is not that clean, got leaves and I don't know what those small part from the flower tree is called. Bud? It was all over the pool. Love that it is facing the marina where we can see more big boats.
 
My baby girl doesn't want to wear the swim trainer which I just bought. She thinks she cam swim like a pro! "Nanak!" "Nanak!" (Don't want!) she said. And keep on pulling off the thing. So, Mr. Fruitheart had to hold her.

 
Beautiful sunset view from our bedroom window. Lovely.
We bought food from the famous night market there for dinner. Dining out with a toddler and a baby is sure going to give a little bit of stress to both of us. We are avoiding those screaming, yelling, frustrating, drinks spilled on the floor and etc. So we decided to buy food from the stalls and eat in our room.

 
And the next day, I am so thankful that all of them are very well behave at breakfast. Good! Breakfast is OK, variety of food to choose from fried rice, cereals, bread, pastries, salads and western breakfast. The place was full. I don't dare to eat outside after seeing some crows flying over. They were there waiting to grab people's food.
 
  
 
 
After breakfast, we went to the pool again for about one hour and half before getting ready to check out. Overall, we are satisfied with our stay and definitely will come again.
 
Last picture, look who's not looking forward to Monday? The smallest. We will have our next holiday my dear children, insyallah.
 
P/S: We should do this often. Every 3-4 months maybe. Of course, with good planning and within budget.

Responsible

Every one knows what is the meaning of responsible am I right? It means - having an obligation to do something, or having control over or care for someone, as part of one's job or role. (Typed in Google and you'll find it yeah).

Here I am venting about my work AGAIN. I am the type of person who takes my work seriously. I am the type of person who will provide my best to finish every task at hand and not going to hand it over to someone else to complete without valid reason. I don't like half way work. I will do from the beginning until the end.

So I told my dear self today, "You have been forbidden to do someone's else work when you knew it will eventually handed to you to finish it. Say NO!"

Part of me couldn't care less now.

It's difficult if you set a high standard and others can't follow it. So, back off a little bit and do your own work. Take care of your own butt! Do not be a star, because at the end of the day.. the same person might take advantage on you.

P/S: Morning ramblings. Will there be a second thought of not quitting in a few days?
