updates on this and that

It's almost 9p.m. now. Finally I got my hands on the laptop. We planned to have dinner before picking-up Kakak and Iman but ended up at McD drive-thru. It was badly congested at Tmn Connought. Oh, there's a new McD outlet opened recently at Suasana, one that we went just now. By the way, tomorrow Jusco Cheras Selatan will be opened. It's barely 2 minutes drive from my front gate. This is not so good... don't you think? Contrary to that, that's among the things that motivate me to get my own small car anyway! We'll check-out the outlet later.

Anyway, I was away for a 2-days course in Phileo Damansara, (where you park your car at RM2 per hour and the season parking is at RM200 per month). The course has 'teambuilding' and 'motivation' in its tittle. After 2 days, I am a bit confused. I had thought the course was supposed to instill workgroup-spirit amongst ourselves, instead we were taught the theories of it. The consolations - we got to do a bit of physical activities, a few guessing games, a chance away from the office and good lunch. And self-discovery. I am not what I think I am. It surprises me at finding out that my first priority in life is not my family. It's moral judgement. Not bad eh? So, by 5.30p.m. today, I concluded my first 'orenbijak' course.

A little bit about the kids. Iman vomitted almost every night. I guess he's being overfed. He indulges about 3-4 of 8oz from 8p.m until the morning. When refused, he'd stood in the kitchen, holding his bottle and won't budge. Sometimes I make just 6oz but when I do, watch out. Your head, your back, your knee or whichever your body part, depending on your position. He usually grunts and throws his bottle and God-knows where it'll land. That always happens with 6oz formula. Kakak, still has obsession for horses and ponies apart from barbie and her princess tales. She was wondering the differences between a pony and a horse. I, use the most obvious fact to answer that, the size. Ponies are smaller, horses are larger. Thanks to her little ponies and Brietta (sapa2 yang tengok The Magic Pegasus would know this) which I used as demo. Plus, I told her horse is kuda in Bahasa and pony is kuda padi. Recently she watched 'Little Ben' where Ben is actually a 40yo man but his size resembles the one of a baby. She told us excitedly 'orang padi, orang padi'....

OKlah, enough ramble for today, I need to sort out laundry and set the washer to finish at 6p.m tomorrow.
