quality time

i was taking my breakfast this morning while watching a morning show from local tv station. they were discussing about family matters. the interesting part which the panel mentioned was about spending quality time with your family especially your kids.

he said… “3 hours watching movies together at home with your family is Not spending quality time… compare to switching off all media device (tv, radio, computer games, psp, hand phone ect) for 1/2 an hour and Talk to each other… That Is Spending Quality Time with your family…”

the key is Communication. talk to your spouse… talk to your kids… communicate… this is what we are lacking of living in this hassle and busy world. get back to the basics… maybe that’s one of the reason kids today easily get into trouble. parents are lack of communicating with their kids. Not to blame totally on parents on their busy times… parents are trying to make a living… but parents… please watch “life is like a cup of coffee” which i published in this blog. it will get you to Think…

Spend Quality Time with your family… Not Quantity…

Talk… Communicate… Discuss…

new routine

guess i never mentioned that my mother-in-law stays with me for the past 5 years. i was blessed that she has been doing the cooking for the whole family during weekdays. but, recently she was not feeling well and i’m the substitute cook.

other than that, my hubby requested for me to prepare lunch box for my daughter. she has been buying food from the school canteen for almost 1 year now… and we do not know the hygiene level while they prepare the food.

now, my new routine is… after morning prayer at 6.00am… i will need to cook at least 3 meals. 2 for the whole family and the other one is for my daughter to bring to school. as usual i need to ask for my daughter’s approval on the menu. i cooked nasi lemak, fried mee, fried kuey teow, burger sandwich… but one thing i noticed… in order for my daughter looking forward taking her meals during school recess is that i need to prepare her breakfast which is different from the one that she will bring to school…

looking back… it’s tiring… may the AlMighty gives me health and strength to take care of my kids.

mother’s day

last weekend was a mother’s day… my daughter woke me up with a song that she learned from school. it was so sweet of her.

my routine during mother’s day was the same as other days. doing my chores as usual… but on that day… my hubby helped me in cleaning up the house. thanks ayang…

i guess… that was my best mother’s day ever… with my kids all grown up and still around me… thanks to AlMighty…
