So Far So Good

Well, Kenny has been off to Reservist... to protect the country (that's what we tell Ashlyn). So I have been handling work, housework and Ashlyn all by myself. So far so good. Can be a little tiring but Ashlyn had been cooperative.

She has been a rather good girl and did not whine as much as before and that will makes things a lot easier. On top of that she is not a choosy eater so dinner has been quite a breeze. A simple dinner can comprise of rice, steamed fish and a veggie. So all the frozen food taken out the night before to thaw in the lower half of the fridge makes life a little easier.

The only thing I can complain about is the cab fare. Today's cab fare comes up to$20.30! Call cab = $4 (cos its peak hours) ERP charges = $3 Peak hours charge = $1. So in the end all the extras comes up to more than half of the actual cab fare...

Why need to take cab? Cos need to send Ashlyn to school mah... quite impossible to get her out of bed real early, like 6.30 am and then rush for the train at 7.00 am so that she can reach school by 8.00am for breakfast, right???

A few more days to go and then we are back to normal again...

Days in a blur

Last Thursday, Ashlyn came down with a terrible fever. We were supposed to go watch a concert but decided that we cannot put her at risk. Instead, brought her to the doctor and then went on home to sleep.

In the middle of the night, she woke up crying that her throat hurt. Her fever did not subside despite the medicine. I had to sponge her down in the hope of keeping her fever down. Then we had to stay home on Friday to ensure that she got enough rest.

Then for the rest of Friday, we stayed home. Ashlyn's fever went up and then down and up and up and down and up and up and up... u've got the idea. By evening, she developed fever rash and she refused to swallow her saliva. Went to the doc again and was given antibiotic.

Over the weekend, she slowly recoverd. But now... I am sick! AGAIN!!!

My throat hurts and my ears hurt and now my head is spinning.

It doesn't help that Kenny is on reservist today onwards for the next ten days! So I will be taking care of everything by myself! Wish me luck.

Valentine's Day

To all who are reading this...


Okay... the day started with anticipation for my durians to be delivered to school. Yes... durians! Mr Kenny Tan told me so... hence I know I have to wait in school for the durians to arrive.

Ha! Think I so stupid... at around 9 something in the morning, my "durians" arrived at the school office. I was at the computer lab having digital art training. People came up to the lab to inform me about it...

Finally, after my art lesson went down to the staff room and collected my "durians". Really nice ones too.

Still on MC

I have been on MC for a total of two weeks. From body ache to flu, then to bronchitis scare (phlegm in the airways...moving down to the lungs) and after that cold sores on my nose which flared up during the Chinese New Year period.

I went a round visiting with a rotting nose... imagine how wonder I look!

Not the least happy about it and the CNY visiting also wore out my already beaten body.

Hopefully by Sunday the sores will clear up and I can resume my work. (Not that I am looking forward to it... too many things piling up... Thought I am a part-timer??? Should not be stress, right??)

Anyway, for those reading this... GONG XI FA CAI!
