Before I was a mother

... everything is about me. My hopes, my dreams, my life. When Kylie came into my life, my whole universe revolve around her. All my hopes and dreams were suddenly for her and about her. It's not easy to be a mother. But I will never ever ever exchange that for anything else. It's the best thing in the world. The best smell is the smell of my baby. The best feeling is when I see her smile. Being a mother (parent) is the best thing that can happen to a person. And you've been missing a lot if you don't understand what I am sayin'.

Back Log

I have so much of photos to upload. But I am so lazy to do it. I suppose to do it during weekends but every weekends, it slips through my mind. I can't even keep up with the monthly photo album of Kylie. I am still missing 8 and 9 mos. She's turning 10 mos in a couple of weeks. Need to do something this coming long weekend.

Speaking of photo uploading, I usually uploads photos in my multiply account but I dunno what's happening in multiply now. Some of the photos I uploaded were missing and/or can't load when I visit my multiply site. Seeesh! Now, I am just uploading in FB. I need to find new online repo for my photos. Any suggestions?

Off topic:

Last weekend, we went to Ampang Look Out Point Resto. Jay-ar and I was teasing and arguing with each other who was the first between us to call it "out look" instead of "look out". LOL. I bet he was the one who first said the word "out look". Talk about so much of work in mind.

Anyways, I have uploaded the photos in FB but here is one for you my dear reader. :)
By the way, just so you know, this look out point is something like Tagaytay or Olonggapo. As the name suggests, it's a resto overlooking KL.

Ok, either it's obvious that I have nothing to do in the office (judging from the interval of my consecutive posts) or I'm just too lazy to do the work. ;p

Totally Hilarious! [Use your imagination]


1) Bring a camera, and take pictures of everyone in the elevator.

2) Move your desk into the elevator, and whenever someone gets on, ask if they have an appointment.

3) Lay down a Twister mat and ask people if they’d like to play.

4) Leave a box in a corner, and when someone gets on, ask if they hear something ticking.

5) Pretend you are a flight attendant and review emergency procedures and exits with the passengers.

6) Ask, "did you feel that?"

7) Stand really close to someone, sniffing them occasionally.

8) When the doors close, announce to the others, "It’s okay, don’t panic. They’ll open up again."

9) Swat at flies that don’t exist.

10) Tell people that you can see their aura.

11) Call out, "GROUP HUG!" and enforce it.

12) Grimace painfully while smacking your forehead and muttering, "Shut up. All of you. Just Shut up!!!"

13) Crack open your briefcase or purse and while peering inside, as "Got enough air in there?"

14) Stand silently and motionless in the corner, facing the wall, without getting off.

15) Stare at another passenger for awhile, then announce in horror, "You’re one of THEM," and back away slowly.

16) Wear a puppet on your hand, and use it to talk to the other passengers.

17) Listen to the elevator walls with a stethoscope.

18) Make explosion noises when anyone presses a button.

19) Ask if you can push the button for other people, but push the wrong ones.

20) Stare grinning at another passenger for awhile, then announce "I have new socks on."

21) Draw a little square on the floor with chalk, and announce to the other passengers, "This is MY personal space!!"

22) When there’s only one other person in the elevator, tap them on the shoulder and pretend it wasn’t you.

23) Push the buttons and pretend they give you a shock.

24) Call the Psychic Hotline from your cell phone, and ask if they know what floor you’re on.

25) Hold the doors open, and say that you’re waiting for your friend. After awhile, let the doors close and say, "Hi Greg, how’s your day been?"

26) Drop a pen, and wait until someone reaches to help pick it up, and then scream "That’s mine!"


By Choice.

Last night, I came from work @ 12mn. My team leader went home early and one teammate and myself were left in the office when the system encountered problem. So both of us fixed the problem and did some data recovery. We finished around 11.30 pm. It was so tiring because I am not used to working this late already.

Around 10 pm, while we were doing some data recovery, my teammate told me that I can leave already. He said, I can left him and he will finish the job. I told him that I will help him finish it. He said, it was okay because I have a baby and my baby will be waiting for me. It was a tempting offer but I felt it would be unprofessional to accept his offer so I decline. I stayed until the job is done.

When I reached home, my Kylie was sleeping already. I felt guilty because every night when I go home from work and everytime she sees me, the smile on her face is priceless. I can see that she’s very happy to see me. Last night, I did not see that smile and I was not able to give her that happiness.

Then I came to realize that it is really very difficult to work and be a mother @ the same time (though this is common already). Especially that my kind of work is very demanding. I have to choose - to be a mother who is there for my baby or to be a hard core employee who works her ass off. If I ask for more work, there will be more demands and to be able to cope up with these work demands means that I will have less time to give for my baby’s needs. Priorities must now be set, because in reality, work-life balance is really difficult to come by.

I have realized that I like it this way. Less demanding job means more time for my family and that should be the equation for a working mom like me, not the other way around.
