My Grand Nephew...

Those of you who've added me in Facebook should know that a couple of weeks ago, I was praying for the latest addition to our family, my grand nephew...
Yup, I'm a grand aunt now...
He's my niece's son, so, he should be called my grand nephew...
Gosh, that does make me sound so old, huh?
Well, anyways, I've a few photos of him that I'd really love to share with all of you...

This picture was sent to me the day I bought my notebook...
I was still a little worried when I saw this picture...
But I guess not as worried as I was before...
He had to have his lungs pumped out when he was born...
Feel so sorry for the poor little thing...
But, I'm really happy to report that he's already out of the hospital now...
In fact, he's been out for more than a week...
Today, he's a healthy 2.8kgs baby...
Since I was sick for the past week, I didn't pay him a visit till yesterday...
He's certainly a very cute baby...
Looks exactly like his dad though... Hehe

That's me holding my grand nephew for the first time...
He's very tiny, but at the same time, adorable!
Tried to wake him up to have his picture taken, but to no avail...
Finally, when I was about to leave........

Ta daaaaaaaaaaaaa....
He opened his eyes just long enough for this photo to be taken....
Yippppppeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!
I left a very happy Grand Aunty or should I call myself Kor Poh?!?!?!
Haihhhhhh, it does sound old, huh?!?!?!
I can't wait till he's a little older, when I can play with him a little more...
Babies are just such adorable things, don't you think????

Speaking of adorable things, check this picture out...

Nah, doesn't the fish look just like a ping pong ball?!?!
I'm really afraid that it will explode someday...
But, the fish is no longer in my room... :(
My mum felt that it would be happier outside in the 5ft tank, so I transferred all 6 of them into the bigger tank outside, and got myself 20 new small ping pongs... Hehe
Here's a video of the bigger ping pong swimming like a submarine...
Enjoy...

That's it for now... Cuddles!

Nature...

I was browsing through my photobucket and I found out that there are a few photos that I've uploaded but forgot to blog about...
Here's one of them...

As you can see, this picture was taken in March, courtesy of my B...
He knows that I love looking at these flowering trees, so he took the trouble to snap a few pictures just for me...
Aren't those trees beautiful???

A different shot this time...
Look at all the fallen flowers on the road...
It's so wasted that the flowers fall so fast & the blooms last about just a week...
This year, we had plenty of rainfall & that's why the flowers bloom so beautifully...

This is from another angle...
Gosh, they're so so so so beautiful...
Makes me appreciate nature so much more...

So, anyway, in a few previous entry, I mentioned that I went visiting temples, right?
And, I sorta stopped when I reached the scenic dam...
Here are more photos of it...

It's so peaceful being there...
We stopped to take photographs & hardly a car passed by...

A picture of me on the bridge...
I loved the view...

There was only 1 downside to this place...
Right before we crossed the bridge, we saw that there was an abandoned food court that was built but never utilised...

See that??
The place is actually brand new, but I don't understand why uncaring Malaysians trashed this place...
Most of the stools have no seats on them anymore...
What fun is there to rip out seats I wonder???

Irresponsible people even ripped out a whole brand new sink!
Geez... I wonder why we even learnt Moral in school?!?!?!?!
Seriously, I feel very sad when I see people vandalising public property...
I really don't see what fun is there by doing this...
Oh well, what do I know?
I'm just somebody blogging about what I see...
That's it for today...
Time to catch some zzzzs'
Cuddles...

Backdated... Way Backdated.... :)

I predict that for now, my blog will be filled with backdated entries for the next few days...
I've got so many pictures to blog about...
Some dating a few months back...
Sorry la, was really busy back then...
Busy with what? I honestly don't remember...
Just that I was busy running around & stuff...
Furthermore, my old faithful was already giving problems then...
Anyways, here are some pictures from the past...
Remember my aunt's durian tree?
We've got some fine looking durians from it...
Those hundreds of flowers, these were the results...

Cute, huh?
The durians look mouth watering....
There's only 1 small problem with them...

They dropped off the tree before they were even fully developed! :(
It seems that durian trees can't have too much water...
The fruits dropped off way too early coz of the rainy season... :(
Looks like we've gotta wait another year to taste the durians then... Haihhhh...

Being back in Alor Star is really great...
This town is so laid back that there's nothing much to do around here...
I've been appreciating nature so much more because of that..

See this cute little moth?
It was on my B's arm when we went fishing...
Isn't it beautiful???

Notice the pattern around this cute little bug?
Found it while I was cutting grass at my 2nd house...
Oh yeah! I actually learnt how to use the grass cutting machine...
It belongs to my cousin & I was curious to try it, so he let me...

Photo compliments of my B...
I tell you, it wasn't as easy at it looks!
I now take my hat off to those bandaraya people who does this for a living...
My back felt as though it would break after cutting a small patch of grass...

Neh neh, my cousin brother complaining of my work to my mum...
Eh koh koh ah, give face abit la, first time leh...
Well, it was a fun thing to try, but I wouldn't do it again... hehe

Lately, I've been obsessed with goldfishes...
I have at least 50 in a 4 ft aquarium in my porch...

Nehhh, beautiful or not???
I feel that they're just so graceful to watch...
Notice that there are a few different species in just this picture alone???

An aerial view of the fishes...
I could only get a few fishes in this picture as I don't have a 4ft lense... :D
My obsession with goldfishes doesn't stop there...
In fact, I have 6 more in my room!

These are the pearl scale goldfishes...
More commonly known as a ping pong... :D
Try as I might, I couldn't get all 6 of them to stay still enough so I could snap a decent photo...
Hmm, guess that's it for the time being...
Will update again soon...
Till the next time, cuddles...

I'm backkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk!!!!

Hello my fellow cuddlers...
Wow! It has been a LONG time since I got to update my blog using a computer, hence the picture-less entries previously...
Any of you missed me??? :D
Anyways, I'm back, bigger & stronger than ever...
So, how's everybody been doing?
Hope that everyone's in the pink of health, unlike me here, who's coughing my lungs out!
I've got the flu again, damn it...
Oh well, that's life I guess...
So, anyways, as I've mentioned, my old faithful P3 desktop died on me a few weeks ago...
It was a couple of weeks before my birthday I think....
Took a few more weeks to decide whether to get a new desktop or a notebook...
So, finally, last weekend, I headed off to PC fair in Penang...
Gosh, it was a zoo over there...
I could feel what sardines felt like...
Check out the people!

That was at about 3pm I think...
The only thing I could do was to grab as many brochures as I could & then sit at the bleachers to consider what to buy...
Finally, decided to get a notebook...
So, here I am, blogging using my brand new baby...
I also bought a pink mouse to go with it...

Well, let's see...
What's been happening to the cuddly one???
I guess I skipped lots of events in my absence...
Didn't blog about Valentine's Day or even my birthday...
Truth is, I don't even know what to blog about...
Nothing extra special happened on those 2 occasions...
I did get a few extra special gifts though...
Will blog about them later... ;)

So, let me blog about my fishing trips... (Yeah, I know, what else is new, right?? :D)
Well, I've got lots of pics to share from our previous fishing trips...

This picture was taken errr, I think about a month ago...
Caught this big 'lampam' fish... (Dunno what you call it in english)
It looks kinda small in the picture, but believe me, this is considered a giant already....
My neighbour who saw this fish requested it from me...
According to her, this fish is super tasty steamed...

Here's my B with a bigger catch...
That's a keli...
We were extremely surprised when he landed this catch coz the river that we fished in normally doesn't have these fishes...

Another big catch...
Also a keli... You can find these fishes live sold in Tesco nationwide, but to catch these huge babies, it's just pure bliss....
Check out the picture below to see just how big the fish really is...

Nah, told you that it's big!
That's almost 2kgs in weight!!!
It's not always that we do land big catches like these...
Sometimes, we even have unwanted friends, like the one below...

Say hi to this slithery friend of mine... :D
Yup, that IS a snake, and it's not enclosed in a cage or an aquarium...
I'll have to admit, fishing sometimes is a dangerous sport...
You shouldn't try it if you're faint hearted...
But, what I love most about fishing is to watch the sun set....
I tell you, there's nothing more beautiful than to watch the sun slowly set in the horizon...
The skies lit up with a thousand shades of yellow, orange and red...

Yeah, I know this picture isn't of a sunset, but it's still beautiful la...

Oh yeah, I just remembered that I've got lots of new pics to share...
We had nothing much to do that day, so we decided to go out & make the most of the 'spring season'... :)

See the beautiful wild flowers that my B picked for me??? :P
Alamak, too small ah???
Sorry la har?

This picture reminds me of scenes from hindi movies...
Where the heroes will dance about in a field of flowers, singing their hearts out...

Me & my friend, Cheng...
I think she's very photogenic...
Unlike me... :(

Last but not least, a picture of me & my B....
Well, I guess I ought to leave you guys now & get some rest myself...
It's getting pretty late, so till the next time....
Cuddles...

P/S: Drink plenty of water & get lots of rest... It's the flu season!!!! Take care people!

Ramblings...

Hi people... Well, it has been a while since my last entry. Truth is, my computer's finally busted. Yeah, finally old faithful has decided to retire...
I'm not gonna repair it as I've got my eyes set on a toshiba laptop launching soon. Will see how things work out. In the meantime, I'm getting online using my phone. Yeah, tough luck! To all my cuddlers out there, be patient ya? I'll try to get a computer soon.
Till the next time, cuddles!
