Xbox Mother's Day Surprise


video

Don't get me wrong, I was not given an Xbox during the recent Mother's Day. I was instead "invited" by my son to view his special gift to me "inside" his Xbox Halo 3 game. What a surprise!

Thank you mom, for letting me learn piano!

情人的眼淚 (The lover's tear)
This song is specially dedicated to mom. She always said she wanted me to play her the song but I hardly do so. This afternoon, I decided it's time to record it so that she can listen to it as many times as she wants. I'm thankful to her for giving me the chance to learn this wonderful musical instrument (but my kids are complaining that I force them to learn...).

親愛的媽媽,祝您母親節快樂。謝謝您讓我學琴,讓我從中獲得無限樂趣。(希望我的孩子們有日也能了解我的苦心)

The N.G. part (Kak Yuni's helping me to record...you can hear her laughter).
My son thought I laughed too hard (maybe he finds it a bit embarrasing)... but at least I know my mom likes my laughter.

Being a Mom is still my favorite job!


Being a very busy working mom with 3 demanding kids, I've just realized the last cartoon I drew was in 2008.

However, I know nothing more important in this world than to take good care of my kids.

God cannot be everywhere, that's why he created mothers!

Wishing all my friends and igloo visitors a HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY.

Still A Naggy Mom...


Mother's Day is coming and I decided to extract the following from my Yahoo360 blog entry in 2008. Instead of drawing with pen like my earlier cartoons, I used the computer instead!


Being a mother of 3, I notice (but can’t help it) I tend to elaborate a lot to put a point across, as compared to my hubby. In other words…very NAGGY.

If my kids are playing computer for too long,

I’ll say: “You’ve been playing for so long, you’re going to spoil your eyesight!”

My hubby will just say, “Kids, enough already.”

If they want to skip brushing teeth (especially my son)

I’ll say: “You know those are your permanent teeth. You do not want to be the youngest person to wear denture.”

My hubby will just say, “Go brush teeth.”

Even when I’m elaborating and emphasizing something that my hubby agrees, he still manages to be so short and sweet…

“LISTEN TO MOM.”

Why he can always find 3 words yet my versions are always longer? Hmm…perhaps men are action- oriented, yet women are more emotional…and like to stir up emotion.

What Type of Mother Are you??

Mother's Day presents from kids.
(MOTHER - one of the most under-appreciated but IMPORTANT person in the world!)



"Go to sleep, sweetie, mommy gotta go to a Mother's Day Party!"
(Not all mothers are the same. There should be a "Performance Appraisal" for mother)
