The PINK saga continues

The picture was taken in the garden. The niece is seen testing out her new pink dress and an old pink hate. The garden hose gets in the way of this being a perfect picture. Photoshop it out says the brother. Probably not say I. ( Too lazy )

Pink shoes for little girls

The niece is visiting. This year she is chatty and has picked pink as her new favourite colour. These are her shoes. She has rejected her older orange shoes...claiming " these shoes make my feet stinky".

Other priceless gems

" Nobody in Singapore puts cream". ( This is in answer to her grandmother's query re cream on face )
She continued on...but PorPor ( granny in singapore ) puts lipstick
"You have curly hair, you are old ". ( Directed to a very unhappy granny with curly hair)
" kanang puteh" Her very own version of kacang puteh.
" Carrie's hair is a little bit short and a little bit long". ( Carrie is her best friend in preschool)
" Dun feed me I am not a baby" ( when grandma wanted to speed the eating process up by feeding her)
" We are going to be late for church" ( as she sat in the hall waiting for everyone else to be ready)
" Hurry up the wedding has already started" ( Failing to understand the concept of a Malaysian Malay Wedding where time is very fluid)

Many come. ( When I can remember them)

Fendi and toes

LIme green is not a good color I know. I will get around to changing the colour before Christmas....hopefully.

The day I met Jimmy Choo

I met Dato Jimmy Choo three days ago. Spotted him at Starhill Plaza with two other friends having coffee. He looks ( see picture above ) exactly like his pictures. I don't own a pair of Jimmy Choos so conversation couldn't very well have gravitated to his lovely shoes. (which I have never tried on personally. This is the fault of the snooty sales persons at the shop in KLCC. ) He stood up immediately walked away from the coffee table and shook hands. Such a gracious man. And as you can see from the picture above , agreed to have his picture taken with me. I regret I didn't wear a nicer outfit:(

PLeasant surprise

I was greeted with the sight of stalls with colourful dresses en route to the mamak stall for my maggi goreng. Disappointing actually. There were less than 10 in total. Hair clips, totes, hats, soap, kiddy toys, some Sarawakian traditional fare  and iron-on cartoon characters. And....I left my book " the inheritance" possibly at the Mamak stall. Only realised it when I got home and wanted to know what else Bramble ( main character, one of the three daughters)...would do now that felicity ( another daughter) had come with the horse that she saved , (Merlin.) *deep sigh* So I will have to go to the Mamak stall today. Hands up, who thinks it will still be there!

Put on a happy face

Put on a happy face, originally uploaded by Litandmore.

I have finally finished uploading ALL the tugasan for the penilaian tahap kecekapan. ( I wonder whether the organisers have their own penilaian). Quite a few hiccups especially ( as it almost always happens) nearer the dateline. The complains range from something as constantly annoying as being unable to view the assignment files let alone upload them to slight minor ( but painful) changes to the tasks given.

It has been a humbling experience for me. And I am very glad I've finished. Have a good weekend folks. Mine will be GLORIOUSLY free of PTK-related tasks

Thank you Borders

Remember my earlier post re Nina Bell..and what a wonderful writer she is? ( Please scroll down if you missed it.) Since raving about her, I've googled her...and found the title of her only other book. They didn't have it at the big bad wolf book sale ( I know I know...but I was hoping it would be there). Book Excess at Amcorp Mall didn't have it either. MPH Mid Valley didn't have it. Self Service inquiry on pc in shop showed " o in stall...out of stock. So today, we went to Borders at the Gardens...AND I FOUND THE BOOK!!! YAHOOOOO
