Prince Mizu Is 2!

Mizu the prince of the family turned Two years old today, why prince? Because my sister and everyone else treats him like a prince and he really acts like one, too pampered I say! He first came to our family when he was 2months old then he was just so small but now he has grown so big and is a full grown dachshund! So my sister went to buy those part items such as plates, decorations and balloons for this “mini” birthday party and we had Mizu put on his tie collar. My sister made a birthday cake that consists of minced chicken, chicken liver and turkey bacon, as for the frosting it’s made up of honey and goat’s cheese as it doesn’t contain lactose therefore suitable for dogs to consume.

Overflow Of Words.

Farewells can be shattering, but returns are surely worse. Solid flesh can never live up to the bright shadow cast by its absence. Time and distance blur the edges; then suddenly the beloved has arrived, and it’s noon with its merciless light, and every spot and pore and wrinkle and bristle stands clear.

Silent Ride For Me.

Right now I just wanna go on a ride with the windows open up and the wind sweep through me, no words no thoughts just let time pass in silence on the roads. Someone give me a ride.

Fragile.

Mummy have been sick on and off for a few months, visiting the doctors frequently but since last week she got a lot worse. She is really weak and spent 3/4 of the time on the bed, when she gets out of bed she would feel giddy like the world is spinning around.

Visiting the doctor almost everyday, different specialist and she suffers from anemia that we all know and some said she suffers from ear fluid imbalance therefore she went to a ear specialist to check on her ear but they were fine. So she went through check ups after check ups and they all turn out fine.

Then she went to the temple on tuesday the person told her it’s some good “friend” problem so she had to pray, after praying she got slightly better and we thought she is gonna recover but sadly no. Till now she can’t fall asleep at night and is still not recovering hence visiting the doctors again. Now she is deem to have anxiety problems and suffers from mild depression due to the lack of certain fluid in the brain. Tonight onwards she will be sleeping in my room with me because she feels stressed out when my dad knows that she can’t sleep, and also I’m not going to school so I can take care of her.

Everyone in the family is tire out now: my elder sister is schooling and she took up the responsibilities to send my younger sister to and fro from school, sometimes sending my mum to the doctor and responsibilities of the house. As for me I have been staying home to train my maids, cook dinner with my maid to teach her, cook porridge for my mum, looking after her and grocery shopping and it’s really hard to do so when I can’t drive.

Maid Troubles.

Okay my house had a change of maids and my new maids didn’t get to meet my old maids so they know nothing about how things goes around in my house. And my mum hasn’t been feeling well recently, she felt really sick just after one day of teaching so she asked me to help her train the maids plus teaching them how to cook because there was only two dish tonight, fish curry and soup.

Today I realised that we have to teach them to the smallest details of things on how things works in the house which is really difficult to do so, for the cooking part I’ve no idea how to teach my maid and for your info she doesn’t know what ingredients are which so it’s impossible for her to learn from recipe books. It’s not that I don’t wanna help it’s just that I don’t know how and feels out of place to do so.

Mummy put me in charge of training the maid because I’m not going to school like whattttt this is so damn troublesome and it’s so awkward that I have to teach them. Thank you mummy for making the “right” choice in not letting the maids meet so that my old maids could just teach them to the smallest details by working with them for a few days. Okayy I seriously miss my old maids. :/

Grrr I hate doing things that are troublesome!

Wonderful Dinner @Le Saint Julien.

Dinner with family on the 13th Oct at Le Saint Julien to celebrate my elder sister’s birthday. We had a wonderful dinner and enjoyed our time there, the service was superb, the server joked with us and really tends to our needs. The food was extremely delicious, most of the starters was chosen by the server himself while we chose the main courses and desserts. It’s a pity that they are closing down, mummy said she wants to go back before they close down and I’m up for it! Stokedd.
