Toy Bank

CHERAS Leisure Mall's 'Toy Bank' is a yearly Christmas charity programme for orphanage homes where shoppers can fulfill wishes by choosing a card that were hanged in their christmas booth, from 3 - 26 December 2010.   






We took 6 cards and get the things kids wished for. It's not really much, like they are wishing for pair of shoes, dictionary, PMR work books, shirts, school bags...   









There are still a lot of cards hanging there, so dropped by Cheras Leisure mall and make some kids happy this holiday season. 


Merry Christmas everyone!

The greatest show on earth. A gift from Santa?

We went to The Gardens last Sunday.  First stop, Borders.  Saw two tall handsome guys, darn they look hot!  Definitely couple.  Dress up the same, buddy commented they look like brothers (incest! hah) and we happen to queue at the counter at the same time.

You know what, they look at me, I told buddy, I think because I have the same beauty as them. He goes: HAHAHA, yeah the backside. Buddy just refused to ride on with my delusions:D

No, it's me they're looking at, I can sense it. Yeah, right!, I replied. We had a good laugh.



Bought his latest book, can't get enough of Dawkin's:)

I've almost reached the last chapter of The Ancestor's Tale, I love Richard Dawkins!  And together with Stephen Hawking's The Grand Design, one book talking about how the universe was formed and one trying to trace our ancestors back to millions of years, god just won't fit in the picture.

I received a letter from the tax office the other day.  Well, I thought, nothing new, they always send these all the time.  But surprise, surprise!  There's a check inside.  They're giving me back RM2,501!  I was like, is this some kind of a joke?!:)  So nice, Christmas gift!:)

You see, when I filed my tax returns online the last couple of years, I don't bother to put all sorts of claims, I just put in there the personal deduction allowed and that's it.  Anyway, it's already taken out from monthly salary and  most of the time I don't even open my pay slip...  so what's left I accept loh:) I had this one case last year and I don't want it happening again. I'd rather have it clean, just don't want a bomb dropped asking me to pay huge moolah as if I'm a billionaire.. :)
























hmmm.. i should get something nice for myself this christmas:)

Strangled Christmas tree

It's the christmas season again!  Time to take out our deco from last year.  I can't help thinking about how boring our little christmas tree  without some blinking lights on. I took the lights buddy bought some time ago and wrapped around it.  One round, two round... I thought erm this is too long.  I was tempted to cut it short but I'm not sure if it still works if I do that. So I continue and continue til the last bit.   And it ends up like this...






It doesn't look pretty eh....  too lazy to unwound it, and darn the glitters were all over place.

I built a house with my two hands,

yeah a bird boxhouse:)  

The chicks are getting bigger now and looks like they are too cramped in their small nest. But we can't find a wooden nest box everywhere!  Well, I figured I just have to make for them and I remember seeing some stuff in Daiso that I can use to build one.  


So last weekend, we dropped by Daiso and bought the things I need, put them into the car while we continue our shopping.  Buddy liked the long sleeve shirts in Uniqlo and wanted to get another pair while I'm looking for a present for a colleague.  Came back home late at night, can't wait to do my project.  It's almost 2am when it's done. 


I always thought if I'll have a big house, I'll certainly would have sort of a hobby workshop for carpentry and stuff.  I enjoy fixing things:)


Ta-dah!



See mommy admiring their new birdie luxury villa:)
