homemaker aint easy...

this mth has been extremely depressing. i would js wann skip the part.

finally, aft a long wait, i landed pg safely on 21st may. i am home. but all alone.
not much of a difference wen i was bc in sabah.

alone. again.

but it is definitely better to be whr i belong.
at least i could drive down to jln delima to get ah cheng, farlim to get jian or to turf club to get clarissa or terengganu road to find my cousins and grab my favourite laksa.

today marks the second day of my home alone.
for the first time, i prepared myself a meal. though not complete, i prepared the meal.

from going to market to get the ingredients to cooking.


not an easy task.
waking up early in the morning, trying to get a carpark, going through crowds of aunties and uncles are rather frustating. not forgetting the noises.
needed a great amt of patience to go through all these.

surprisingly, i survived! hahha.

and so, proudly presents my meal of the day
not a scrumptious meal but as i hv said, i prepared.


first time i stir fried chicken. not bad the taste with steam four season beans.

no more rice at home. only brown rice which is a big no-no to me so i had tomyum maggie



bitter gourd soup.

sobs. failure. too much water dyy~

being a homemaker aint easy at all...
i really salute my mom.

a piece to share...

came across smth really interesting when reading stephanie's blog. its a speech by Adrian Tan, author of The Teenage Textbook (1988). He was the guest-of-honour at a recent NTU convocation ceremony.

not the full speech though, extracted what really caught me...

''The next big milestone in your life is today: your graduation. The end of education. You’re done learning.

You’ve probably been told the big lie that “Learning is a lifelong process” and that therefore you will continue studying and taking masters’ degrees and doctorates and professorships and so on. You know the sort of people who tell you that? Teachers. Don’t you think there is some measure of conflict of interest? They are in the business of learning, after all. Where would they be without you? They need you to be repeat customers.

The good news is that they’re wrong.''

i do not know how true this is but at certain extent, i agree. up till now, i cant see anything great in it. perhaps, i really hv lost the passion of all this. jaded, i am. but i really envy those who are in it. sounds contradicting? i know. not my obligation to explain anyway.

lecturers, in the same industry, share the same piece of thought. i might be wrong in my observations of my lecturers in my university but they do give me the feeling tt they value the master students (and the potential master students) more. from the way they try to sell the goodness of masters' degrees.
