Taking a Pause

I have been super busy!. Doing so much, thinking so much...stress!!. Time of moving is already next weekend. I am still doing my full swing packing everyday.

I will be disappeared from blogging world. I need for the next several months to concentrate and focus on a new life of ours that means, regretfully, pushing the pause button on this blog and pause visit your blogs for a while.

Before pushing the button.... just wanna share some photos from our weekend getaway. With some Sabahan and Sarawakian friends living in Germany and Holland last week. I had a great time.
Enjoy viewing.

Its too loud.

  • My next door neighbour is partying full swing right now. The music is sooooooo loud, I feel my wall is vibrating, they´re talking and laughing making my whole house trembling. Their dog barking like crazy. My time showing 1 a.m. At this time they should ensure that their music turned down to enable neighbours to enjoy their evening in peace, especially when it comes to them getting a good night sleep. It has been a long and tiring day for my family, my boys really need good sleep, I will hate it if they´re be disturbed, crying and awaked because I need a rest and quiet time too. Its annoying, the extreme noise make it unbearable for me to be in my own home.
  • I remember when we celebrated new year, we wanted to have karoeke session and small gathering at home, hubby went and visit our closest neighbours, those who live next door, to tell them we were going to have party, it could be loud. Just to show some respects to neighbours. Tapi jiran yg satu ni..buat macam tida tau saja that we might be affected by their noise.
  • This is not the first time, they throw parties many times. They keep us awake all night without notifying us that they would have a party..but we have been very patient towards them, we refraint ourselves from knocking their door or calling the police...Anyone with half a brain would have managed to reach that conclusion on their own. Paham2 lah kan, kitaorang punya rumah ni malakat to each other...ndak payah labah dikasih tau what to do kan..bukan budak2 lagi...kalau dia takana jiran yang sangat strict, habis pintu durang kana ketuk or they get a visit from either local environmental health department or maybe the police.
  • I know it´s Easter, its holiday, we are having long weekend, we´re all very relieved about it but they don´t have to push for 1 a.m to turn down the music, tutup itu jendela dan pintu labah..we don´t need want to hear them getting ruined our evening.

Frohe Ostern/Happy Easter!

  • To all my Christian friends/bloggers.
  • Have wonderful, peaceful and blessed Easter!
  • Happy Easter! Buona Pasqua! Frohe Ostern!
  • Here celebrating Easter mesti ada chocolate eggs. For children especially the symbol and great joy of Easter is the Easter egg and Easter handycrafting. Masa ni payah butul mau tahan iman sebab Chocolates berlambak-lambak di Supermarkets. Menggoda betul :)

These are for Easter egg hunt on Easter Sunday.

Kids got them from our neighbours Gisela and Charlie.

Kids handycraft in kindergarden (isinya chocolates and painted boiled eggs, sudah masuk dlm perut hehe)

  • May Your Easter be filled with joy and inspiration for the Lord Jesus.

  • I just read an amazing article this morning after I turned on my PC and I thought its nice to share this in my blog. Personally, I find this as an amazing stuff to read on this Holy Thursday. After reading, I realized its so amazing how God´s goodness works through the people He uses. Someone said before, "There just aren´t good people in the world anymore", he was wrong. Today I disagreed!.
  • When we were brought up to do right thing and live by the golden rule, I think overall, most people ARE good. I believe that if we do good things, the favor is returned to us someday:) I believe there are still honest people out there who do care. I think if more people would just be a little bit kinder, there is less conflict in this world, and everybody would be much happier.
  • LOS ANGELES – As she walked from a post office, Talon Curtis thought she'd found one of those gimmicky sweepstakes offers on the ground that scream something like "$357,959.55" in big bold letters and "This is not a real check" in much smaller type. But just as she was about to do her part for a cleaner planet and deliver the paper from the parking lot to a trash can, she noticed it was a real cashier's check with a real signature.

  • "I couldn't believe it. I almost passed out," Curtis, who works as a loan negotiator, told The Associated Press on Wednesday. "I have never seen a check that big. Not in my possession, anyway."

  • She immediately set out to find its rightful recipient, but it was Saturday afternoon and the banks were closing. On Monday, with help from KCAL-TV reporter Dave Malkoff, she located the check's owner, who had arrived at her bank in a panic.

  • "I think she had walked in at the same time the bank manager called me back," Curtis said. "I could hear her walking up to him. and I could hear all this commotion in the background."

  • Curtis said she spoke briefly with the woman on the phone about a possible meeting, but Pacific Mercantile Bank instructed her to mail the check to them instead.

  • Not willing to take a chance on the mail, Curtis delivered it personally. A bank employee confirmed it had arrived.

  • Curtis said she never thought of keeping the check for herself, and she declined the woman's offer of a reward. Still, she's just a little disappointed.

  • "I just wanted to see her face," Curtis said, laughing. "I just wanted to let her know that there are honest people left in this world."
  • Pretty darn cool huh? What do you think? How do you repay someone for such kindness? I wouldn't even know where to begin thanking this kind person! I'm so thrilled. It's nice to hear stories like that..kind of restores your faith in people.
  • Have a blessed Holy Thursday Everyone. God bless!.
