We all know that mothers work hard. But mommy bloggers work hard, and run blogs. I am having so much fun exploring the world of mommy blogs and there are a few reasons why I like to read mommy blogs. Some of these amazing women I have met share their stories of motherhood and how their experiences in motherhood affect the many various aspects of their lives. When they have down time, they are online as blogging makes them more relaxed and perhaps one of their getaways. They write about mother-related matters, their thoughts on everything from trick-or-treating to women's shoes for a few different blogs. What makes them interesting is the way that blogging about motherhood seems to have become a part of motherhood itself. It is interesting to read how some WAHM (work at home moms) are managing their busy active lives between family and works.

As the web expanded, the number of mommy bloggers increased. These "mom-fluentials" have evolved into a savvy and a powerful group of women whom companies want to woo as they are actively engaged in product discussions. Some of their incomes do not come solely from blogging, but from a combination of blogging and full-time job.

Hey mamas, are you a mom who blogs? I know some of you are searching for some extra money to help pay for the basics without breaking the bank and be around your children at the same time. Well, SocialSpark is right around the corner. Sign up now! They love mommy bloggers and your search is over!!

About 5p.m, I was starving.

So we went to Lan Kwai Fong Café at The Curve today.

Iced ying yong/coffee mixed with tea (RM4.50++) and Iced lemon tea (RM4.50++).

Five spiced pork cube noodle (RM10.30++).

Tempting? Yes. Tasty? No!

This was the WORST dried noodle I've ever had! I'm not very fussy when it comes to food but it was EXTREMELY salty and I gave up on it after a few bites.

har gau/shrimp dumpling (RM4.70++).

siew mai/dumplings with pork (RM4.70++).


The dim sum here were cold and not fresh at all!!!

All this while, I've been using streamyx and today I am having a problem with my line, again!! I don't download big files. I don't play online games. So I've no problem with the turtle-speed internet connection. I just couldn't connect to the internet and I really don't like to call them because there was this one time, when I called Streamyx, they asked me to call Telekom. When I called Telekom, they will say it's Streamyx fault.

I almost became crazy when I called up TM Nut Net. This agent asked me to reset my port. Ok fine. But the words that came out of her mouth were like bullets from a machine gun! I wish I could record down our conversation but I'm not sure how. So she asked me to restart my laptop after that. "If cannot connect, then call us back." After reset, restart or whatever, I still couldn't connect to the internet. I called again. Another agent picked up and I complaint to her about the previous Indian girl (No offence to other Indians!). Again, she asked me to reset my port. Eventually, I key in the wrong DNS number. Thanks to the Indian girl for her "good customer service". After reset, still the same; couldn't connect to the internet! She said my phone line has problem. "What problem? Since I don't have a physical phone at home, therefore I couldn't check from my side." Then she said she will send a technician over to my place within 48 hours. "I beg your pardon? 48 hours?! You better come and kill me now." I was so fed up and almost poured my coffee to my laptop! I admit. I can't live without the internet. Can you?

Luckily my friend helped me up by using his wireless connection. Then only I can sit down here and type this post. Now, I'm thinking of changing to another reliable service provider and cancel my Streamyx account. I had being paying too much for the bills! Has anyone tried Maxis broadband yet? or are there any other good ISP??

1: Your best friend introduces you to her boyfriend; he’s absolutely gorgeous. When your friend is out of the room he makes a pass at you. What do you do?

Smack his face, then tell my friend.

2: Out shopping you see a brilliant top that you must have, but on checking the price tag you discover that it’s been mistakenly marked down to half price. What do you do?

Buy several in different colours at the bargain price.

3: You are to sit for an important exam soon. Passing it will mean furthering your career. If someone approaches you, offering to sell the answers for RM100, what would you do?

Immediately report them to the authorities.

4: The ATM machine near your office is malfunctioning, spewing forth double the amount of money keyed in. Would you -

Ring up the bank and inform them.

5: There’s a rumour going around inyour workplace about a colleague. Though you know it’s untrue, you totally dislike her. What would you do?

Make sure whoever told me knows that the rumour is false.

6: In a supermarket you see a little old lady, who is obviously down on her luck, shoplifting a can of cat food. What do you do?

Walk past and say nothing, it’s none of my business.

7: If you were given the opportunity would you cheat on your partner?

Never, I find it impossible to be unfaithful.

8: Does your partner know how much you spend on yourself each month?

I have no secrets, he knows exactly what I spend.

9: A pretty necklace has been found at the place where you work and you remember a visiting customer wearing it. It is evident that she lost it, what do you do?

Track down the woman and delightedly tell her the necklace has been found.

10: You were too busy or simply forgot to buy your partner a Valentine’s Day card. But he receives an anonymous card anyway. What do you do?

Admit to him that I forgot to get a card.

What sort of person am I deep down? Am I likeable and loveable, or spiteful and sour? Am I naughty or nice?

Between 11-20

You are basically a very nice person, though sometimes you do give way to temptation. On these occasions it’s to your credit that you do struggle with your conscience, but find in the end your desires get the better of you. It’ s obviously not your intention to hurt anyone, but if you don’t change your way of thinking that is bound to happen soon. 13

Take the quiz at CloveTWO!

I'd have to say, I'm a bit of both; halal and haram niceness and naughtiness. Depends! Well, I have my naughty moments too. Trust me, you don't wanna know. LOL. After all, every nice person should be naughty sometimes. Am I right?

Nowadays, hip-hop has influence the society in various manners. The thing with rap music is that for many rappers, the lyrics are autobiographical. I personally think that, what they depict is the reality. Many people get caught up in the shocking lyrics and attempt to fix such problems but they should be attempting to fix the social problems spoken about in the songs!

What better way to make someone smile than singing the hip-hop lyrics of "I Like Big Butts" by Sir Mix-a-lot or some original hip-hop lyrics to express your feelings. Oddly, some of the most seemingly benign rap songs of today such as "Me So Horny" by 2 Live Crew, or other sexual songs by Slick Rick were considered menaces in their own time due to their colorful hip-hop rap lyrics. However, some of today's most cherished hip-hop lyrics also came from the 80s, thanks to Sugarhill Gang and Kid & Play, or Run DMC. is a site where you will get the most up to date hip-hop news, gossip, music, and anything related to the hip-hop scene, purely for entertainment purposes. Besides that, hip-hop fans will enjoy plenty of great benefits including meeting and making friends with other fans and becoming a part of one of the fastest growing hip hop communities to hit the net. Check out some of the no-holds-barred lyrics or rap videos and see for yourself. Hey, I warned you!

I love glass noodles but I've never had Korean glass noodles before. I don't really fancy Korean food except for Kimchi (a traditional Korean dish consisting of fermented chili peppers and vegetables, usually based on cabbage) and Gimbop (Korean-style sushi roll).

So, yesterday, I had this Korean speciality dish at home.

Korean Vermicelli. These long, chewy noodles are made from sweet potato starch.

Gochujang (hot pepper paste), a savory and pungent fermented Korean condiment.

I'm not sure about the recipe though coz I'm not smart enough to make this dish. But, I can ask the chef anytime.

The noodles are gray when raw and turn almost translucent when cooked (thus given its popular nickname, glass noodles). It's incredibly chewy and surprisingly delicious!

I wrote a post about SocialSpark two weeks ago but I hope to share much of what I have experienced, and am still on Cloud 9 from the experience.

In fact, I had every intention of highlighting all of those benefits. All I can say is AWESOME and I like it...a lot!

Basically it is a great place to start building a community. In other words, it allows bloggers to share information about themselves, their readers and their blog content. You can search for complimentary matches, interact with each other, create networks, issue ratings, send messages, and ultimately capitalize on shared interests.

It will also a good start to build your blog traffic. Blogs are read by many readers who share common interests and empowering bloggers represents a huge value proposition to advertisers. With SocialSpark's open analytics platform, advertisers can see the actual traffic and demographics of blogs they sponsor or a vertical network of blogs they sponsor.

If you are looking for additional ways to monetize your blog, why don't you try SocialSpark as it provides so many opportunities for ordinary people like you and me to make some money. Yes, you can use this to earn some dollars through opportunities, while increasing the value you provide to your readers.

Another reason why I like SocialSpark is because of their code of ethics.

1) 100% Audit-able In-Post Disclosure. You can tell your readers that you are being paid to write the about the sites, products and services that you support.

2) 100% Transparency. The public can also see which bloggers are working with which advertisers on which opportunities.

3) It allows you to write a review based on your 100% real opinions.

4) 100% Search Engine Friendly. Each sponsored link automatically carries the "no-follow" attribute. Therefore, it will not affect search engine rankings.

So far I can only recommend you to check it out and give SocialSpark a try!!!

Their signature dish, chilli pan mee (flat noodles) is one of my favorite food!

This is another branch of Super Kitchen Restaurant which is located at Kota Damansara. It was quite crowded during dinner time but that is expected for a place that serves nice food.

Dry pan mee.

Flavorful soup pan mee.

Both were appetizing and truly satisfying accompanied with the fiery chili sauce.

By the way, I've heard there's a restaurant that serves 15 styles of pan mee! However, I'm not sure of the location. Oh gosh, 15 styles?! I'll eat like there's no tomorrow. Anyone heard of such a place?

When I woke up this morning
and crawled out of my bed
your image was in my head.

I just couldn't get you off my mind
I want you so terrible
I have to take you home
it's hard not to love you.

What I said is
straight from the heart
You may not have known it yet
But I have loved you from the start
Please believe everything I say
These feelings are so true.

I couldn't stop smiling
to see you in front of me
knowing I cannot look away.

You seduced me in the sunshine
You proceed to tease my lips
as my tongue dipped and swirled
till I couldn't get enough
You really hit the spot
You made me lose control
You knew I could crave this most.

Your left with a mess
only I could clean up
Still I was not satisfied
I wanted more inside
I screamed
and begging for more
Oh, how I want you!
I will surely ask for more.


Oh, give me some more please.

I was given this award by the lovely Ratu Syura. Thanks babe!!!

This award is extra special because Crystal created it in honor of the donor who saved her sons life. Her son Noah had to have a heart transplant when he was just over a month old. This award is supposed to help raise awareness of the importance of organ donation.

So, here are the rules Crystal gave:

“The rules of this award are: SHARE THE LOVE!!! Share this award with all those blogs out there that you love. All the people who make you smile. All those that make you laugh. All those that make your day. All those that leave uplifting comments on your blog. **All I ask, is that you include a link to this post with the award and ask your recipient to do the same**

As you may have recently seen on my side bar, I have finally created a custom blog award!! I have wanted to do this for a long time but never came up with something that “fit”. I didn’t want just anything. It had to be something that meant something to me. And what could mean more than Sharing the Love by giving you pieces of my heart??

So I created this award in
Honor Of The Donor That Saved Noah’s Life. I share this award with those of you whose love and friendship have enriched my life and made my world a better place.

I hope by passing this award around the blogging world we can all help raise awareness of the need for
Organ Donation."

I would like to share the love with all my blogger friends in my blogroll! Please pass this award around. Thank you.

It was towards the end of October. One fine day, my friend Cynthia invited me for dinner at Dorsett Regency. We were nicely dressed that night and both of us planned to go clubbing after the dinner.

Just as we entered the hotel's coffee house, we are greeted by a vampire who stands in front of a tombstone, next to the entrance! OMG! I almost screamed out of my lungs! "What on earth is going on here?" I asked her. Before she could answer me, the vampire quickly showed us to our table as the party was going to start soon. "Party?.... What party?" I looked around the coffee house, I saw skeletons were hanging from the ceiling and Jack-o-lanterns peeked from every corner. The whole coffee house was covered with black plastic and glow in the dark webs with some creepy music. There were witches walking around as well.

She didn't tell me it was a Halloween party! Gosh! I didn't expect as it still has a week to go before the Halloween night. Otherwise, I would be wearing a Sexy Halloween Costume!

Maybe I should be wearing like a police officer to catch all the vampires

or becoming a playboy hipster witch to join those witches.

Dishes on the menu were given names like Bat Wings, Freaky Witches Fingers, Fried Spiders, Witches Brew, Pumpkin Punch, Witches Cauldron...The meals were gross yummy! While I was enjoying my dinner, all of a sudden, Zorro was standing next to me!

He was wearing a black shirt with attached belt, black pants, black boots, black eye mask and carried a fencing sword. *ahem* Probably he thought I was a Senorita. LOL. *just kidding* How could a Senorita not wearing a ruffled dress and a headpiece with a lace veil, right?

Now, I am wondering do I get a chance to wear a Halloween Costume for the coming Halloween party or Leg Avenue Costumes, anyone?

Oh-la-la ...

Ever wondered which are the horniest countries on the planet?

These are the top 10 horniest countries according to

No. 10 - Mexico
No. 09 - Switzerland
No. 08 - Spain

No. 07 - Malaysia

In public, this country definitely appears conservative. For example, there was a recent controversy over whether sex education should be taught in high school or not -- not exactly sexually liberated. However, behind closed doors lies (pun totally intended) the real story: Malaysians are swinging from the bedposts, and loving every minute of it. Occasionally we'll get a glimpse of it - like when Malaysia's Minister of Health was forced to step down after his homemade sex tapes made the rounds in January of 2008.

Horny hangouts: In Kuala Lumpur, check out these bars and clubs for a straightforward party: Aloha, Poppy Bar or the Rum Jungle. To “choose your own adventure” visit the Beach Club where there’s a good chance a girl comes at a price, but she'll be worth every penny.

No. 06 - Italy
No. 05 - Poland
No. 04 - China
No. 03 - Russia
No. 02 - Brazil
No. 01 - Greece

I know conservatism on the part of the older generation, as well as misconceptions that sex education programs encourage sexual activity, are major obstacles. But, I'm one of those people who agree formal sex education is nessasary in schools!

:: I am grateful for being blessed with a caring and loving bf who is also my best friend.
:: I am grateful to have my wonderful friends, including blogger friends (without them I would be very lonely in the blogosphere) who brighten up my day with encouraging words.

Most of all,

There's always something to be grateful for about life, truly I am Blessed!
