Bye-bye


Nope, this is not a suicide mission gone wrong. hehehe Although I've been feeling a bit moody lately, I wouldn't resort to suicide. Too chicken for that. If you've noticed, I haven't been writing very frequently and I've also blog-hopped less. I don't know why, but I don't feel very energetic. I used to be able to stay up till 3 am but the past week, I fell asleep together with the kids. Just couldn't get up to have some 'me' time. So I don't have much time to update my blog, read other's blogs and leave comments or watch my Cantonese serials. (I'm very far behind already. Too many AOD shows to catch up. The Astro MAX is running out of space!) Moreover, we'll be going for a short family holiday in 2 days' time. And I haven't started packing yet. So friends, please bear with me. I'll slowly pick up the momentum after the holidays. I'll see you when I'm back ya. Bye-bye for the time being.

Ok, back to the picture above. How did that happen? I was using a red pen but didn't realise it has leaked. And I got ink smeared all over my hand and fingers, and the computer table too. Then I remembered reading somewhere that toothpaste is able to clean up stubborn stains. So I gave it a try.

It was much easier to remove the stain from my hand with toothpaste as compared to soap. Yes, I tried to experiment with both. As for the stain on the table, the toothpaste did a good job. I've stained it before (previously was blue ink. I do sound very clumsy, don't I? LOL) but couldn't remove the ink with soap. Now my table is squeaky-clean... bye-bye stains!

Hui Sia, how I wish it’s a relaxing mth for me too. :)

Yatie, hehehe

Sting, I’m still exhausted wor. How?

Paik Ling, ur hands squeaky clean now? Oh, shld give my old specs a try too.

Joanne, thx for the hug. *hug*

Babybooned, yup... and I’m hoping I’m slowly getting out of it.

Sharine, I really salute n admire working moms who blog at ungodly hrs and wake up early for work. Altho I don’t get to sleep in late (CE's an early riser), at least I can nap awhile in the afternoon.

Jac, seemed like the hol was not much help (to me, anyway). The person who enjoyed the most was XY. And that made the trip worth while. Children always come first hor.
