I dreamt of a lion last night

To see a lion in your dream symbolizes great strength, courage, aggression and power. You will overcome some of your emotional difficulties. As king of the jungle, the lion also represents dignity, royalty, leadership, pride and domination. You have much influence over others. You also need to exercise some restraint in your own personal and social life. Alternatively, a lion represents your need for control over others. You have to be in charge.

This is what it means!


It was time to bald baby D as he is going on 3 months. Went to Batu Caves to complete the ritual. While all the other babies were bawling their eyes out, little baby D was as cool as a cucumber. He did move quite a bit though. And we were glad we came at three months and not at 6 months like how it was done for little N.

More than baby D, it is N who is taking much of my time. 😀 His Appa says N is more of a baby than baby D himself!

Frequent cough, cold and fever is not helping the situation a bit-now that he is going nursery and all.
Joshua, Amanda, Aishah, Kavishini, Fong are some of the names he rattles off. It is so adorable to hear him say these names in his cute little voice. I like to hear the way he pronounciates the names-classic!

A little update

Remember I was quite worried on how I am going to manage the home with two babies once I start work? Well, things are going better than expected. I have a life of my own inspite of having to manage it all. Yeayyy.

I have time to watch tv (divine!!), I am a tv addict by the way and I am not ashamed to say it out aloud. And the best of the best-I have started to read. Yup, it is Agatha Christie’s Appointment with death.

Work has been cool. I am not doing much of personal stuff during office hours. Today is an exception as I wanted to fill in the space here.

All in all, things are going on well at the home front.

Mid way reads

Besides Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace,  Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged has been put off indefinitely by me. Salman Rushdie’s Midnight’s Children nearly joined these last year though I preserved somehow.

It is highly unlikely I will get back to Tolstoy, though I am optimistic of Rand. Perhaps, it is not the time yet for me to ponder over her philosophies in this book! 😀

The maid is here! The maid is here!

She is 22 years old and like most maids from Indonesia, she looks much much younger than her age. The agent has imposed additional MYR1000 as opposed to the earlier agreed sum. Her salary too sees an increment of MYR50.

The girl seems to be hardworking and is very very clean in her work. She sort of passes my level of quality control. Remember my OC behaviour? Well, she does a good job. Does things without being asked to and is eager to do her job.

All in all, it has been good so far. Hope it remains that way.

I’m on leave for the next few days to set a routine for the maid. Children and cooking will be managed by my mom during the day and me once we are back home. We will be commuting back and forth daily. Will send the kids and maid to mom’s place and I will be off to work from there. Evenings after work, hubby will fetch all 3 back home.

On a separate note:

  • Viswaroopam sucked!
  • That was my first movie at the cinema for 2013
  • I want to start reading this week and have been eyeing Agatha Christie
  • I am motivated to lose more weight. The progress has been good so far
  • Early rising at 5.30am is going on well too
  • So is the reaching/leaving office early resolution

Not So Bad Afterall

I feel so loved being in the office. Let’s just say that my office family is a very warm and loving one.

Though I was mentally dragging and preparing myself to get back to work yesterday, once I got ready this morning, I was all ready and psyched up for work.

I am back! 😀

Promise to upkeep to self:
Leave home at 5pm sharp
Go to the loo when needed
Take a break

When someone talks to you, look at them NOT at the monitor no matter how busy you are. Don’t be rude!!
