The face that launched a thousand hearts....

Paul Newman, the face that launched a thousand hearts...Which includes mine when I first saw him in his movie with Robert Redford, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and of course its not his face only but he carried his part so well and that goes to his other movies. I like Robert Redford too but I simply adored Paul Newman with his blue eyes hahaha.

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.

esok Raya....

Yipeee....besok Raya and cuti 2 hari hehehe...bestnya! The best thing about being a Malaysian is that, there is no celebrations that are not celebrated by everyone...Hari Raya, Christmas, CNY, Harvest Festival or whatever celebration name it...termasuklah shopping celebration wakaka. Beside the cultural unity and harmony(and I hope it stays that way) that has been instill in every Malaysian community its a factor of inter-marriages in a family. Just like in our family...we are completely rojak...we celebrate all the celebrations it fun time the whole year round.

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.

Monday....and two more days to Raya(if the baby moon is seen tomorrow night). The road is finally traffic free... beside it's school holiday I guess everyone is still on the bed coz most of them on leave or no need to send their children to school's so peaceful on the hassles... yang cam my turn no frowning mukamau makan orang hahaha Yup! traffic jam is a place for a crash course on lips reading and be an expert in sure do know when people are cursing or saying the famous 4 letters word(thanx God d Sabah lum ada road bully). So, as for today and tomorrow rushing business, I know I'll get to work on time...yipeee! But doesn't know about the shopping mall lah pula hahaha those with last minute shopping or baru ada time mau shop, guess the mall is not a good distination at this time...sure KK jam abis ni, and tatap2 my friends are having a good time...mantang2lah durang cuti....nanti kamurang...December baru hahaha.

Even an exciting moment has to come to an end...yup! After being in the office for a few hours I felt like going home pula...mana tidak me...3 of us...boring bah tiada kawan2(ada yang on leave sudah and yang lain..faham2 ja)...nasip tiada tikus di office if not boleh dengar durang berlari2(cam d office lama sya hehehe). Its so boring that even taking a nap during lunch hour is impossible...Oh no! I have another day in solitaire tomorrow(over2 juga lagi bah tomorrow).

I'm relief of the findings of Health Ministry on the melamine contains in the food listed which my darling poppet had consumed hehehe....the mini cornetto chocolate mint..etc..etc.. hehehe BUT I've decided to scarp off whatever been listed from my shopping list(God knows what else will come up after this)... Nah! semangat dah ni...apa boleh buatlah kalau ada yang tidak ketahuan( lagu matta pula hehehe).

click here for the update news on China milk scandal

snippets : China milk scandal Melamine was found in a snack imported from China and a biscuit brand from Hong Kong, the Korea Food and Drug Administration said today in an e-mailed statement. The French government said any food containing Chinese milk products must be removed from stores and cannot be sold.

Widening Bans
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!

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 colouring...etc lagi....binggung binggung binggung!

Eloooowww! Glad to be able to tap on my keyboard again. Life has been quite hectic lately...not with work but with my dear poppet, Gabe. With him being down with flu, cough and mouth ulcer and mind you it happened continuously I can't think of typing anything. He has only a few days of rest and back we are to visit his pediatrician, Dr. Terry again....since his last birthday we visited her thrice, God willing we don't need to see her for quite sometime. Going through the ordeal I just can't think of blogging except for browsing the net for a few minute or so. Well enough with what has been happening with my life the past few I want to share with everyone the recent anxiety which has took place quite recently especially parents...China's milk scandal. I guess by now everyone is well aware of it but then again I still want to share with my dear readers (just in case it has slip of the eyes or ears hehe) the information I received from the email regarding the milk scandal and you can read it over the Internet as well.

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;

  1. M & M (thanks God! didn't taste this for few years already)
  2. Snickers (whoops! ate this last year)
  3. Mento's Yoghurt bottle (never drank this)
  4. Dove chocolate (never ate as well)
  5. Oreo wafer sticks (do hope the cookies is safe)
  6. Dutch lady Sterilized Milk (never in our shopping list)
  7. Wall's all natural mango (never in our shopping list as well)
  8. Mini Poppers Ice Cream (gee...had a good time eating it last week..gave Gabe as well)
  9. Magnum Ice Cream (ate this few months ago)
  10. Moo Sandwich Ice Cream (ohh gee...)
  11. Mini Cornetto (bought it together with the mini poppers)
  12. Youcan Ice Cream (never seen this)
  13. White Rabbit Milk Candy ( friend is anxious now for she eats this almost everyday)
  14. 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.

weather or low resistance.....

Woke up this morning with an aching I going to blame the weather or body low resistance? You 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.

Gabe's birthday

First and foremost, I would like to wish a blessed and holy Ramadan to all my Muslim families, relatives, friends and readers.

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 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. are the pictures...

The birthday boy, Gabriel Rishon
