This book is sure an awakening to me as well as a reminder to me not to take the language of love for granted and the greatest love is unconditional love. For being a parents we sometimes think we know all and are sufficient by simply telling a child "I love you" or "sya cari makan ni kalau bukan untuk anak2..siapa lagi!" and by saying and doing so our children know that they are being loved. Of all the ways we can miscommunicate our intentions, perhaps the way that has the greatest potential for harm is to not properly communicate love to our children. Can you speak and do you speak you child's love language?(errr...made me look deep into myself hehe)
Well..this book show you how to recognize and speak your child's primary love language as well as four other common love languages that can help your child know you love him or her. This book will introduce you to all the five love languages of children and help you determine the primary languages in which your child hears your love. Speaking your child's primary love language does not mean he or she will not rebel later. It does mean your child will know you love him, and that can bring him security and hope; it can help you to rear your child to responsible childhood. Love is the foundation.
Snippet from How a Childs Feels Loved
For a child to feel love, we must learn to sepak her unique love language. Every child has a special way of perceiving love. There are basically five ways children (indeed, all people) speak and understand emotional love. They are physical touch, words of affirmation, quality time, gifts, and acts of service. If you have several children in your family, chances are they speak different languages, for just as children often have different personalities, they may hear in different love languages. Typically, two children need to be lvoed in different ways.

We reached Keningau around 3.30pm and hungry, so we went to a shop that selling Nyu Chap(beef soup) which my poppa friend recommended. We ordered two bowl of Nyu Chap, tea-C ping for me and tea-tarik for my poppa , wellll....guess what others may find tasty and delicious would not be with us coz it all depend on our own taste bud, so I guess it was not the kind of taste that I would like in a soup which were too sweet for me so my conclusion is you got to taste it for yourself. Then again being disappointed with the taste didn't mean I didn't swallow my food... I did! I was hungry what do you expect! hahaha But only drink bit of the soup. I was hoping my tea-C taste would taste better but I guess I was expecting too much LOL Like my food, I just drink it hehehe I don't want to complain so much for there are people in this part of the world that doesn't even have a scrap to eat...I should be thankful to have what I just had :)
After filling in our tummy we checked in New Grand Central Hotel and went for my favorite ABC Special (air kacang) which is about 50 meters from our hotel. I like the ABC Special here for the taste is just right for me...not too sweet not too creamy and it's a mixture of all my favorites hahaha. After having it, Gabe and me went back to our room while poppa went for his golf which was the sole purpose of us going down to Keningau.

Enough with me being melancholy (I've shade enough tears already hehe), I've made a promised to myself that I won't look back and appreciate what we have for I believed God has better plan for our family, He has something better in store for us and most of all we still have each other AND as the eldest in the family I've to be strong for everyone esp for my mum. As for now, while waiting for our new family house being built my mum lived in our dear old cottage which is by the paddy field, it may not be big but it's surrounded by a beautiful view.
I can't remember ever taking a picture of a paddy field or paddy itself, so I decided to pick-up my digi cam and take a shot at it and capture the memory that it's giving me right that very day for who knows one day this will be taken away from us as well.
Here are the snapshots of the paddy field and paddy...tidak lama lebatlah buah padi ni and time tu lah sengsara mau halau burung pipit and punai...belum lagi case gaggau kena serang oleh serangga perosak...hmmm. But best time time gini coz leh smell the aromatic smell of the paddy hehehe
It continued to rain heavily until we reach to Tuaran and good thing Gabe is asleep by now otherwise I would have another problem on the other hand(as always). It was a relief when I saw the junction to mum cottage , thanx God(which I normally missed in a dark rainy day) and finally we are safely in my mum doorstep at 6.40pm hahaha. It has been a while since I came back and it's good to be back home and I missed rainy day smell in kampong, it gave me a kind of peaceful feeling ...do you know how I described the smell? 'Greenly smell'...Yup! bercolor-color lagi hahaha guess the rain has a different kind of smell when in kampong especially when it's just a few feet away from the paddy field and the paddy just sprouting out. Before I can start reminiscing and being nostalgic, my sister reminded me we have to leave for our nephew Isaac birthday (1st cousin Alfred son) which will be at 7pm, dreading to drive Gabe and I squeezed into their Kenari hahaha.

Yes, this is what you need to have in order to make a kulupis. 'Silad leaf'(anybody knows what is silad in bahasa or English? LOL), glutinous rice and grated coconut.
and this is what we need to do....
Preparing the 'silad leaves' while waiting the glutinous rice to cook...
kulupis making and that's the beautiful about them for they don't need to hear about any speech regarding unity(politician hot topic lately which can't hardly be seen in some...duuuhh) in order to have it...they practising it all these while.
And this is what we were dong as we help one of our dear friend who wants to have kulupis for her Raya celebration tomorrow, we are continuing the spirit of unity which we were brought up with regardless of races and religions among us and at the same time having fun especially for the newbies in kulupis making hehehe.
and here are part of the kulupis crew
this is what we do to the glutinous rice when it is cooked
then fold it...and...
Well...that's all about it and whatever sharing I've had here is out of the information that I've acquired from people around me and whatever I amiss as well as wrongly shared I deeply apology for it and I would very much welcome comments and willing to be corrected. If anyone interested on the ingredients don't hesitate to ask...I can ask my friend whom the expert hehe What!?Me? I'm only the crew, remember? wakaka

Guess where I watched the movie? At Tuaran football field in 1974 and mind you it's not at the cinema(am not allowed to go hehe) but it's a free show(wayang free bah dulu2 kena panggil) by Jabatan Penerangan. We went there as early as 6pm, of course we cycle to Tuaran padang...kira2 1 kampung juga datang hahaha sitting down on a straw mat(my aunt brought) with the big white screen in front and once in a while being bitten by the mosquitoes but that didn't drive me away...semangat! Ever since that kenal trus who Paul Newman is and looking forward for his movies to be screened by RTM at our black and white tv which we finally owned in 1976....those were the days :)
Read the news today that he has gone to rest at the age of 83, may God bless his soul and he rest in peace. You can click here to read more on Newman.

So tonight as always and seems to be our family tradition for the past 20 years we will gather at my eldest sis-in-law house to help her with the preparation, for it's a customary for her to have Raya open-house on the 1st day of Raya. As always....we'll be preparing the kulupis tonight, glutinous rice cooked with coconut milk and wrapped with daun silad, tied it individually with a string then gather a whole bunch of the kulupis for boiling, banyak tangan diperlukan to prepare all this since what we are preparing is not in the numbers of 20 or 30 pieces so that's where the crew comes in hahaha. Just like ketupat, kulupis is served with rendang or curry but as for me I prefer to eat the kulupis while it's still hot just as it is with a cup of hot local brew coffee(kopi Tenom lah bah kunun tu)...hmm...inda sabar2 lagi ni...bukan inda sabar mau kerja but makan hahaha.
The cooking of the daging rendang, curry, ayam kurma or other stuff we leave it to the captain, we the crew ni do the minor2 stuff...masuk2kan cookies in the serving container or once in while in our belly...yup! and buat chaos dengan cerita2 sensasi or yang terkini wakakaka....bukan apa...saja mau menghilangkan ngantuk hehe.
To all my Muslims family, relatives, friends and readers...A Blessed Aidil Fitri, segala salah dan silap harap dimaafkan and have a jolly good time from the Mumsiepoppets.

As many as 25 countries and markets in Asia, Africa and Europe have either banned or recalled Chinese dairy products or goods made using milk from China after the government on Sept. 11 said Sanlu sold products containing melamine. New Zealand's Fonterra Cooperative Group owns 43 percent of Sanlu, one of the country's biggest milk-powder makers and the first identified as having produced tainted milk.
I'm glad that Malaysia has taken the same step and relief that the supermarket around here (yang I go often lah) has complied to the instruction. I still can't stop thinking how the culprit (for sure lah ada yang terover2 pintar dia suggested of using the method) slept at night after adding melamine to the dairy product (or.. they don't know it's fatal???...mustahil! Don't give me that crap!) or if they had a sleepless night pun sebab they're counting the profit they will be making from it. Ni lah if $$$ sign ja di mata..di otak...mau senang ja out of people misery...suffering... or shall I say the best word for it is LIFE. Can't help thinking the ordeal those babies went through before they rest in peace(prefer to say it gently), as a parents I can't help of thinking about it and being sad at the same time, and there are about 53,000 still suffering now...that's the numbers that we've a knowledge of...ntah2 banyak lagi.
To me 'sorry' is not enough coz the harm have been done can't be undone or scrap-off gitu ja, I'm not being judgmental but I can't help thinking that they are sorry because they were caught.... otherwise they would still be shaking their feet as they counting their profit if that wouldn't be the case...ntahlah ni manusia! I'm sure they do know what they are doing when they committed the offence...laaahhh professional bah durang yang berkerja di sana tu...I believe bukan labourers yang suggested semua tu...sekarang...start pula pointing fingers at eachother...bikin panas!
Harap2lah the tit-bits or whatever that contain dairy ingredients that I've bought all these while are free from being contaminated coz terkenal juga sya ni from being cerewet...frankly, I don't buy food products from China unless I'm not aware but ada juga barang2 yang lain I buy. Tidak cukup2 with worrying about other things, e.g. pesticides in vegetables...formalin in fish...food colouring...etc etc...ni lagi....binggung binggung binggung!

Not sure how it is in Malaysia but our Health Ministry has started to look into it but the information that I received is that these few items has been recalled due to China's milk scandal;
- M & M (thanks God! didn't taste this for few years already)
- Snickers (whoops! ate this last year)
- Mento's Yoghurt bottle (never drank this)
- Dove chocolate (never ate as well)
- Oreo wafer sticks (do hope the cookies is safe)
- Dutch lady Sterilized Milk (never in our shopping list)
- Wall's all natural mango (never in our shopping list as well)
- Mini Poppers Ice Cream (gee...had a good time eating it last week..gave Gabe as well)
- Magnum Ice Cream (ate this few months ago)
- Moo Sandwich Ice Cream (ohh gee...)
- Mini Cornetto (bought it together with the mini poppers)
- Youcan Ice Cream (never seen this)
- White Rabbit Milk Candy (well..my friend is anxious now for she eats this almost everyday)
- Wan Wan Rice Cracker (didn't buy this for quite sometimes)
So...statistically the family swallow 40% the item listed above (imagine this statistic applies to every family in Malaysia)...goodness me! Then again if having one, two or even three of each of the item above putting us off danger zone...praise God! but I still can't help thinking of how unscrupulous people can be to gain a profit, they are the millennium murderer...yup! that is what I call them. Hopefully our Health Minister enforcement officers will have a fruitful misson and the air will be cleared for us.

Woke up this morning with an aching body...gee..am I going to blame the weather or body low resistance? You see...it was pouring heavily yesterday when I went home so it doesn't matter how fast I ran to my car my baju kurung and hair wet also...orang tua2 bilang mesti trus cuci rambut (myth or....) but I didn't do it...alasan? Standardlah macam artis...'malas' with capital 'M' wakakaka. So now apa2pun terjadi tahan ja lah...body aching kah...hidung gatal2 kah have to bear ja. If it get worst then jumpa doctor ja. The only thing I've bear in mind is that, I better make sure I see the doctor before it get worst for I've to think of Gabriel...masaalah abis if he kejangkitan.
I feel like going to give my hair stylist (for the past 10 years), Alice of A Cut Above III Hair Studio at Wawasan Plaza a visit...during lunch of course hehehe and pampered my hair (cian bah my rambut cam sabut kelapa dah) and a have good head massage.
K...mau ciao dah ni...otherwise I'll be caught in the jam.

Yup! Gabe celebrated his 2nd year old birthday party last Saturday; in fact he celebrated it twice. The 1st one was in his nursery which is his actual birth date, August 29th (Friday) where he celebrated it with him friends and teachers.
Well, his birthday party went well despite of the rainy weather...yup! The weather didn't turn out as I expect it to be....its worst...it rained the whole day! Then again, it didn't stop everyone from coming and the children from having a good time. Actually, it was a blessing in disguised...the parents doesn't have to worry of their children plunging themselves into the pool hahaha.
So....here are the pictures...
What do kids love most at birthdays?....Yeaap! cake...well so do we adults except for those calories
Kids love balloon as well...and our dear clown had a good time showing off his creativity with the children...click here for pictures
