All good things must come to an end.

I've finally caught the last episode of Ghost Hunt. It's really sad, that the anime has ended. I wished I could get my hands on the novels, and can read Japanese, but that's not going to happen today or tomorrow.

I've also been watching Nodame Cantabile, and that is one hell of a drama. We bought the live-action drama, and the actors and actresses are pretty cool! What happened to all the Jdrama? Why is it only Kdrama nowadays? I still think Japanese actors and actresses are cuter than Koreans, and their language are more musical to the ears, their jokes are more funny and ... I still like Jdrama than Kdrama. The anime for Nodame Cantabile pales in comparison to the live-action, but I'm not complaining, seeing how Ghost Hunt has finally ended, and Saiunkoku too. *sigh* Life sure is sad without these good things.

Nodame Cantabile makes me want to play the piano. :-) I need a new piano. Next promotion. Yep, I shall look for a new one. The keys in my old piano are loose and the notes just doesn't sound as nice. I brought my scores to my in-laws place and happily played a few hours there, while baby is sleeping or being entertained by them. Not too bored to be there. heh.

Anyway, there are a few things I need to write, but I'm not sure if I should do so, especially things which concern work. I'm going to post them in my new livejournal, so if you're interested, drop me a line. Blogger should come up with some option which can restrict prying eyes from seeing, but then again, I'm not sure how private livejournal is too, even if it's for friends only. Hmmmm.

Another day

It's amazing how a person's mood can be so easily changed by another person, or a word, or a look ...

I was in pretty good spirits until towards the end. Still it wasn't exactly a bad day, nor was it a fantastically good one. It's just tiring. I'm glad for next week.

Yoga tomorrow. I hope I can make it.

Big words

One of baby's first three-syllabic word was umbrella.

Hubby's friends came over for dinner the other night. They didn't believe us when we mentioned it off-hand, when they asked if he was starting to speak. So we prompted him to say umbrella. At first, Len was quite reluctant to be our pet monkey, then hubby took out said object and showed it to our baby. It was one of those full size ones. Baby delightedly grabbed the umbrella and started yelling uuuummmm-brreeeeee-lllllaaaaah! And then there was no stopping him for the rest of the night, well at least until we took the umbrella away from him. :)

Baby is also starting to say words like dangerous, it sounds more like janjanrous, and he's finally learnt to say ah-gong, which comes out more like ah-geng. Ah well, but the strange thing is that he seldom uses mono-syllabic words, I guess he prefers big two and three syllabic words. We'll be teaching him more bombastic words then. :P

Baby also loves rolling his tongue and going brrrruuuummmm when he sees a motorbike. He'll go MMmmmmmmmmm when he sees a car. And he's also very interested in bicycles. We're thinking of getting him one, a tricycle. Time for him to learn to fall! Haha.

Just another day

Dear baby is now finally asleep, and I've finally got some time to myself. That is to do my own things. For myself. That is, to blog.

Otherwise I've been busy with housechores, work and hubby's work. Sometimes I do feel a little resentful that I've become expected to help him. Maybe it's me who can't say no, maybe that's what love is. But it gets a little tiring if when one helps yet gets criticised because of upspoken expectations and standards.

Like yesterday was a pretty bad day. I drove hubby to work, and got criticised for my bad driving, like tending to keep more left than right in the lane, accelerating when car in front isn't, and god knows what. I guess it's a bad habit of mine to always tend to be a little to the left, but you know what Professor Calculus in TinTin always say? A little to the left, that's what he'll say. I know what I'm doing, and I'm not going to get into any accidents, yet. And if he's in a bad mood, he doesn't have to take it out on me on my driving!

And another thing being later at night, when I was trying to help him do more filings, and overshot his closing time. Well, he could just have easily told me nicely to stop, and help me put everything back. After all, those were all his stuffs. Grrr. The last time it happened I swore I won't help him again, yet there I was, doing stuffs for him again. Maybe I should just stay away from his workplace totally huh.

Of course the last thing which pretty pisses me off is his webpage. Next time I'll just keep my big mouth shut and never never offer anymore help. As it is, I've offered to do something about it later today. But right now, I'm really really super unmotivated at all.

Oh yes, I have lots of complains today, but I shall not say anymore, else Wen will definitely criticise me too. :P

Anyway, Tuesday I finally went back to yoga. General class. Perhaps Viv isn't doing really tough stuffs after all. After almost a year of no yoga, the class really didn't feel too bad! :) Yayayayay! Must continue to go for yoga! I really need more motivation!!

I hope baby sleeps a bit longer this time. Because I've been feeling pretty down in the dumps lately, I've been indulging in much shopping. Now gotta keep the spoils and check the receipts. Arrgh, just how much did I spend this time? *covers eyes*

And after I've done that, I hope I'll have time left to watch my animes. *sigh*
