It's my darling's birthday today...... Happy Birthday My Dear! May you have a good one and may you be blessed with lots of happiness, good health and prosperity!

We will be celebrating it at our favourite restaurant - Avanti @ Sunway Lagoon Resort!

The last few days have been sort of a turbulence for hubby and I cos our little boy was down with high fever, cough, sore throat and running nose. Believe it or not, it's the first time that he was so sick since his birth! He was so unlike his active-self....just lying around, being quite and occasionally moody and throwing a bit of tantrums. How we wish he could get well soon and be up in his usual self again. Being the 'new & unexperienced' parents caring for a sick child, we didnt really handle the situation pretty well especially when he complaint of having pain here and there, we were just helpless.

Things were pretty messy and our mood was really affected by the uneasiness felt by our little boy. It's true when thay say, " it's better that we adults fall sick than the child". Well, this reminds us that it's not easy being parents, especially to a sick child. He's better today and we really hope that he can fully recover to enjoy his trip in Singapore. Yup! We are heading south tomorrow and will be spending Christmas there this year!

14 Dec, 2006 - A Few Days

First it was a wedding we attended on Saturday (9 Dec). It was the husband's cousin's wedding. Took place in Tangkak, Johor. Took us almost 4 hours just to reach there where it was supposed to be only a 2-hour journey. Thanks to the long stretch of jam at Seremban.

Well, the wedding dinner was in a typical Chinese restaurant where you have those people who took to the stage and sang like they are superstars. Of course there's a few hired ones whom are not too bad....One fatty fellow actually had quite a good voice when he sang...but just dont look at him. Voice and physical appearance just dont match!
And to add in salt to injury, we were seated right next to 3 HUGE speakers!! was damn deafening and ears-polluting! All in All....not an enjoyable dinner!

10 Dec, 2006
My darling surprised me by getting me a brand new phone! Sony Ericsson Z558i.
He actually wanted to get himself one (his old one was a real junk and he needed a replacement terribly). Mine was still usable and in a very good condition. But of course like the Malay said "Rezeki Jangan Ditolak!" ha ha ha.... I took the offer when the hubby told me to choose one which I like.
Hubby: A Christmas gift from me.

So there we leaving the shop with a glee and hubby....of course a bigger hole in the pocket but said that he's happy that he made me happy! Well, I'm happier to know that he's happy making me happy......



11 Dec, 2006

Public holiday in Selangor. The hubby took the day off too to bring his parents and relatives shopping. Yes...a whole troop of them came down since last week for the wedding.

Venue - One Utama

Duration - 11am - 7pm

Remarks - Holes in everyone's pocket!


12 Dec, 2006

The in-laws left early in the morning to ca tch a 7.20 flight back to Terengganu.

Finally back to my much mellowed-down life after a week of entertaining and being a hospitable host *wink*...not to mention the 'good' daughter in-law

Took my beloved son for his once-in-2-months haircut! A daymare for him and for me! Never liked having his hair cut and it's a pretty difficult situation to deal with, esp. with his constant struggle and resistance! Well, it took to the worse when the much dreaded incident happened! As my hairdresser (yes, I only trust her.....been cutting my son's haircut since his birth) was using the electronic shaver for a final touch, my beloved son had to decide on that time to make a big struggle and GAWD! her hand slipped and there you have it.....a deep gap/hole in the middle of his head! No choice but to shave his head almost bald to cover up the obvious hole! sigh! His shortest hairstyle ever...since birth!

The Shaolin kid - as my brother put it.......

8 Dec, 2006 - Happy Birthday, Bro!

Time really flies....(i know it sounds cliched but it is ..) I was 10 when baby bro was brought to this world.......words couldnt describe the joy he brought to us esp. to my parents...afterall...a boy in the stopped 8 years before getting pregnant again....
well....can't escape from the fact that a boy in the family somehow brings extra joy and happiness into the family...esp. Chinese! being the traditional and dad were overjoyed!

That's exactly 16 years ago today! 8th Dec 1990! My baby brother is 16 today!


We had a small celebration at TGI Friday's last Saturday. And as the usual gig done by the crew at TGI for birthday boys and girls, The Brother sportingly adhered to their 'command'.....


With the ones who brought him to this world.....

2 Dec, 2006 - Nail Art #2

In the mood for all things PURPLE.....

2nd Dec - More ART...


#1 - Show how delighted you are on having a lollipop in your hand.

#2 - Pop in the lollipop the 'conventional' way.

#3 - Fed up? Turn it upside down and taste the stick like this...

#4 - More stunts? Remove the whole stick from the lollipop and put it into your mouth.

#5 - Oops...lesson learnt. You should only enjoy the candy.

1 Dec, 2006 - Art in many ways....

I was thinking on the appropriate subject for this blog and been having recap in my head for the happenings taken place for the past 3 days......and have come to a conclusion that sometimes, the actions/activities/experiences/ etc... in our lives revolves around many forms of ART!

THE ART OF MISTAKE! (29 Nov, 2006)

Curious as anyone would be receiving letters with a different letterhead...I was happily expecting that I might be informed in the letter that I'd probably won a contest or that I might be chosen to represent the country in the upcoming Miss Malaysia Pagent.....* ok ok, it might be impossible...but hey! wishful thinking ok!*...back to my letter.......

Letterhead - CCRNET : well, tht's the only thing printed on the envelope.....

still hoping for something positive or perhaps a small surprise. ...until I read this......

No. Akaun : 2006********

Tunggakan: RM1,872.41

"Kami mewakili TM Net Sdn Bhd untuk mengutip tunggakan bayaran dari pihak tuan/puan bagi kemudahan perkhidmatan Internet Dial-up / Streamyx yang diberikan oleh TM Net kepada pihak tuan/puan............"


First of all, the account no. stated in tht stoooopid letter is not the same as my existing account! Secondly, my TM Net bill only came the day before and it's up to date and the only payment I owe is the one for November! And did I mention that it's under my name? So, being a paranoia, I made a call to the TM Net Customer Care line......and blimey! it was also in the system that I owe tht freaking company the same amount of money!.....immediately to the TM Point in Shah Alam the next day to clarify the matter.

Case filed. No payment required!

See what I mean by the ART of MISTAKE!


At the Aunt's if learn how to make the 30 year-old family recipe of pineapple jam tart. Well, if you may ask, nope! didn't lift a finger at all in the whole process of cutting, grating, sieving and frying. So, who did it? My 2 beloved cousins who initiated this meeting! Being an observer...I was happily clicking away with my good ol' camera! So, see if you could get hold of the "cara-cara membuat Kuih Jem Nenas Tradisional" Apparently, there's a certain way, or if I may say ART to cut, grate, sieve and fry the pineapple......not to mention the ART of making the pastry....tht's to be done after the pineapple is fried til it's dry. Nope, we didn't stay that long for the pastry-making session. To be done.....God knows when...

There you go..another form of ART...

Well, after steps 2 ,3, 4.....

28 Nov, 2006 - The Wonders of Panadol

Was feeling a bit uneasy yesterday evening....dizzy, headache and higher temperature in the body...when u feel uneasy wht do u do??? Malaysian style - Pop in 2 Panadols and u r on the go!!!! well...not immediately but it really works! wonder if it's the medication which really takes effect or it's all in the state of mind! anyway, felt much better after that....

Monday morning (27 Nov) - The husband was so into THE book that he reads it anywhere, the house i mean....not to mention the loo! anyway........the first thing he did when he emerged from the toilet was "Dear, are you going to the gym anytime soon?"..Aniston, still in bed and blur," Tomorrow I guess. Why?" Husband, "There are missing pages in the book! No QC...such a big gap....from pg 47 and jumped to pg 61"

well well well....what can I say......

Today - 28 Nov - There I was..being the good wife...and mother...took my son out for a while....just mommy and boy (nope, mommy decided to skip the gym today) change daddy's book in MPH....mommy n boy spent some time at McDonald's...he really enjoyed himself with the playground in McDs. It really made me wonder......sometimes it's so easy to make your child happy. No expensive toys..just simple stuff like that......The smile and laughter on his's just so innocent and genuine.....

Nov 27, 2006 - Week's Recap

Nothing exceptionally happened the past week......well here's the recap though

Was at Jusco BBK, Klang on Friday (24th Nov) for some brief shopping....spent a total of around RM200 for the following items:-

1. A blue gypsie skirt

2. A pink pants

3. 2 pairs of white sandals from Vincci

Left the mall........with a hole in the pocket and of course....a SMILE on the face..

Saturday (25th Nov)

Spent some time with the husband and the son at SACC in Shah Alam...and yes! spent more some Christmas gifts.......think it's the earliest this time for me to start my Christmas am I supposed to turn down a great bargain? Sale started at some friend once told me..... "it's not how much you spend, it's how much you save!"

dinner with the son and husband before putting the son to sleep and finally sneaked out for some catching up with friends at Gazebo, Subang Jaya. You know, the usual bitching and gossiping session.....was there from 10pm - 2am...could have chatted longer if not for the eyelids insisting a rest......

Sunday (26th Nov)

Gym from 11.30am til 1.30pm (I'm a member of Celebrity Fitness, Subang Parade)..not a favourite place to hang out on a Sunday but the husband had made me promise to agree to spend at least 2 hours there on Sundays with him...hence, no running away! Had my favourite workout - BODY COMBAT.

Hung around at Subang's actually quite a nice place to hang out...not too packed and crowded like other malls....very relaxing and mind you, parking is never a problem there. well...when you are in a shopping mall, what do you do????? SPEND MONEY! got some more gifts from MPH.....

The husband bought a book entitled - "Malaysia and the club of Doom - The Collapse of The Islamic Countries" by Syed Akbar Ali. It's actually on the recommended list of MPH.

The book? well, it's an analysis by the author on the sorry state of Malaysia and Islamic countries around the world. It's quite a controversial book and we are surprised as how it could make its way into publication, esp. when the book revolves around condemnations on Islamic states and their rulers. And more surprisingly, it's written by a Muslim itself.

The husband managed to sum up some chapters to me about how one could actually seize its power and proclaim a state an Islamic ruled when there is no single power, except God Almighty posessed the absolute power to do so. It covers the subject on how the Quran is widely misinterpreted, hence the sufferings by its believers, esp. the oppressed women.

Well, the book sounds pretty interesting and perhaps it could really create an impact on the minds of Muslims in this country...afterall, the aim of the book, as penned down by the author is 'to make the country and perhaps the world a slightly better place'. I might soon read it to get a better insight and understanding on what the exact message the author is trying to convey to his readers.

signing off......

Nov 21, 2006 - Abby's birthday

The past 2 days have been mundane. Hence, no post!
Attended my niece, Abigail's 3rd birthday party at McDonald's Subang Jaya today. Notice the odd day to have a party.......only non-working mothers and their kids! hahahaha.....nah...not intentionally....just happened on Abby's exact mummy tot McDonald's would be fun and convenient.....

Lesson No. 1 - Try to hold kids' party in the day...Kids tend to be more active and enjoy themselves more.'s true when they say 'the kids bring the house down!'....

"Mummy, I want fries.." overlapped by "Mummy, I can't find my shoes!" added in by "Mummy, *so n so" beat me!"....continued by "Mummy, where's my toy?"......and on and on and on.....they just wouldn't stop!

Argh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! headaches!
Ok...don't get me wrong...I adore kids....just that sometimes they can be really noisy and all u feel like doing is to shut them up! hahaha

Guess being a mummy isn't all about milk bottles and diapers. Noise endurance must be HIGH!

Anyway, it's always enjoying seeing your kids enjoy themselves...the smile on their face...awwwwwwwwwwww.......the happiness and glee......just melt your hearts.

Snap shots.....

Before the party....on mummy's bed

Zach, Abby (in pink) and Phoebe

You can never take a proper group photo for kids under 5!

Nov 18, 2006 - TGI Saturday!

The husband is watching his other 'love' on tv - I thought I'll just pop in for a post. Was at Eden at Subang Parade for dinner - only the husband and Aniston...first time there. Ratings below:-

1. Ambience - so so...not what we expected it to be

2. Food - not too bad but portions are a bit too small, hence not enough to be shared for two. Ordered the 'Surf & Turf' (which is a platter with half lobster and a small steak fillet) Was half way thru chewing the 'rubbery' steak when I realised that I should have taken a picture of it......the husband said "forget it, la. nothing to shout about anyway". hence, no pic!
Apart from that, Oxtail Soup and Carbonara - small portions and slightly above average line - rating I mean.

3. Service - the husband is one who always looks up to good customer service, esp in the food business. His rating - not good *full stop*

4. Next visit? - Nope!

Well, our stomachs weren't really the thought of a yummylicious dessert floated our head. Aniston, "so, where to for dessert?" .....the reply? as usual, "up to you"' said the husband. Aniston, "Well, since TGIF is next door......*body language*. Husband, "OK".

So there we were....2nd seating for food within less than 2 hours.

Waiter: Can I get you anything, miss?" (*note the address "miss" - we weren't out with Zach. AM always addressed as "Ma am" if am seen with THE baby*)

Oh yes, did I mention that we were out on a 'date' to celebrate our belated 3rd wedding anniversary? nothing fancy...just wanna reminisce the good ol' days.....
ok ok..back to the conversation with our fellow waiter at TGI.......

Aniston: We are here for the dessert. Can we have a Mocha Mud Pie pls?".

Waiter: Sure! Any drinks?

Aniston: Yea. Strawberry Surprise, pls. Thanks. (My all-time favourite drink from TGI)

Waiter: And you, sir?

The Husband: Anchor Draught, pls.

The Ultimate TGIF Mocha Mud Pie

Gone Going Gone......Minutes later.......'s what we call a satisfying and fulfilling dinner. *burp*

alrighty...The husband is done with football....gonna have our *pillow talk* now......think whtever you want......

*lights off*

Exploring - Nov 10, 2006

Been having sleepless nights for the past 2 nights and now it's another one! Well, it's gotta do with my health recently which is really bothering me. Been having itchy and watery eyes lately and it's due to my allergy to....something which I hope I already knew! Something to do with my sinustisis problem which also affect my ears and nose. Actually I've been having this problem long as I can remember but it's been getting worse lately.

Anyway, made an appointment with an ENT specialist tomorrow and hopefully all questions will be answered.

At least I can be occupied by this blog-thingy for now. Am still new to this thingy and I've been exploring on how I can make full use of it. As stupid as it might still trying to find my ways in uploading pictures in here....
yaya.. I not as techno-savvy as some of you...but hey! I'm learning ok!

Debut Post - Nov 9, 2006

So, what makes me wanna start a blog? well..blame it to my kiasuism attitude that I've recently read heaps of blogs created by some frens and aquaintances and realised that I might miss the boat and not be part of the bandwagon....hence the creation of aniston-kathryne blog!
Nah.....those r just some craps as an introduction!

Well, I find that having blog is good to keep up with frens and at the same time a convenient way to have a so-called personal virtual diary! OK ok.....the fact that I've read other ppl's blogs somehow prompted me to create one! What's with the latest 'in' thing that I heard so often lately..."have you blogged?"; "leave a comment at my blog"; "log on to to blog"....urgh!!!!! what is this all about? now I's the next most happening thing in the virtual reality.....that it is!

Anyway, to those who visit......feel free to drop a few lines and comments. As for my part, I'll try to post at least one blog each day.
