Tips of on giving instruction to men

When giving instruction to men, we must be very specific. I guess, their mind does not work on a basis of common sense. To me, they are like a robot that has been programme to do certain task. You cannot tell them to “mop the floor”. U will probably ended up with a mopped floor at the spot that he is sitting/standing. You must be specific like “Mop the living room floor or Mop the whole house floor.” This is just one example that I have personally experienced. Like if you want them to buy a pdp, you have to be specific which pdp you are talking about.

Unfortunately, I am quite forgetful. Last Saturday night, I told my hubby to iron the clothes for church because I have a backache and can’t stand too long to do the ironing. I woke up the next day with a pile of our children’s church clothing still on the table un-ironed. Only one shirt is ironed and that is hubby’s. Do I get upset with him? Almost but I remembered that I did not specifically tell him to iron ALL the clothes on the table. My bad.

So, ladies, remember, be specific, be very specific to avoid any heartache. :D

Nyonya Chang

Nyonya Chang1

Doesn’t it look yummy. This Nyonya Chang is made by my mom. I sold quite a number of them to my friends in KL. They just can’t get enough of it. The photo above is from one of my Nyonya Chang customer.

Unfortunately, I do not know how to make Nyonya Chang. All because I do not fancy eating it. I love Nyonya Pineapple Tarts, so I picked up the skill from my mom and now, I am as good as her in making Nyonya Pineapple Tarts sans the pineapple jam. Unfortunately again, my kids love eating Nyonya Chang. So, for the love of my children, I must learn how to make it. Just, I do not know when I’ll start. ;)

Fine Dining at Home

Someone I recently get to know from my Facebook group, bless us with a good sum of cash. She specifically told me to spend the money for myself and my children. “Buy something nice for yourself and children.” she said. The first thing that came to my mind was bringing them to Kensington to enjoy some steak which they have been asking for but we can’t afford to bring my family of 8 there.

Later, I got a better idea which cost lesser. I bought some beef from the market and made beef steak dinner for them. No hassle of making sure they behave well and did not spill or drop anything while dining in a fine dining restaurant.

They can eat as much as they like without dirtying Kensington’s table skirt hangers. I am sure they can always order more skirt hangers – but the best is still dining in the comfort of our home.
