After the visit, we never talked about it anymore. Everybody was too busy with the holiday until the Christmas Eve, I was so touch when Teng Hong came to me and suddenly asked me: “Mummy, how is Auntie Janti’s mummy now? She gets well already?” and he then sent a message to Santa: “Wish Auntie Janti’s mummy get well soon.”
Oh my boy! I couldn’t hold my tears when I heard him saying that. Instead of asking for more toys as what he always wished, he made a thoughtful wish to Santa at the Christmas Eve. My six year old boy, who drives me up the wall at times, really melted my heart that night.

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Bidazzled. All opinions are 100% mine.
Have you ever heard about Bidazzled? Launched in early November, Bidazzled.com is redefining the online auction market by offering savings of up to 90% on name brand merchandise all while funding a charity.
Commonly called Penny Auctions or Pay-Per-Bid auction sites, bids are purchased in advance and then used to bid on merchandise. The price increases a few cents with each bid placed and a few seconds are added to the countdown clock to give others a chance to bid. The auction ends when no other bids are placed. So if a new laptop ends at just a dollar, then you win the laptop for a dollar!
What we like about Bidazzled is that it was designed and created to fund a lung cancer charity (The Ruch Foundation: http://www.ruchfoundation.com/ ).
*Auction winners usually save over 80% off retail.
- If you don't win, you receive up to 50 Bonus Bids as a thank you for participating, and You can purchase the auction item less the investment you had in the auction.
- If you win, Bidazzled typically make an offer to buy the item back for either: cash (paypal or check), cash and bids, bids

Since July, she has been able to recognize numbers (1 – 10) and read the alphabets from words. She likes to ask mummy the spelling of a word. Hopefully from this habit she can learn more spelling.
She likes to
She can count objects, add them or subtract them. Recently she starts to do simple picture addition.
She is able to sing quite a few songs including the National Anthem, Negaraku.
Affected by her kor-kor, she is interested more in Ultraman, Transformers and Ben 10, not Barbie or Princess like most girls do. She can get along with her kor-kor well.
Her growth is quite good, weight 15.5kg and height 101cm, compare to 10 months ago her weight is increased 2.0kg and height is increased 6cm.
Her milk consumption is getting less, 200ml 1-2x daily. She started to take Pediasure Complete formula since September. Lately she can finish her meal faster. That’s a good improvement! *wink*
At home, sometimes she is very kpc, try to help mummy to brush the toilet bowl when she finished poo poo, wipe the dusty things, sweep or mop the floor, etc.
Next year we are going to send her to kindie, so mummy will have more me-me time, hehe... :D

It was around 10.30pm when my father’s friend’s knocking at our front door, telling us that my father was unconscious after vomited at a nearby coffee shop while playing Chinese chess with him. My mother rushed to the coffee shop which was only about 3 minutes walk from our house; she still could feel my father’s breath. They were transporting him to a doctor who stayed a few doors away from the coffee shop when I reached there a few minutes later. I tried to feel the pulse at his wrist as I have always monitored it for him, but I couldn’t find any. Soon after, the doctor confirmed that my father had died.
All of us were shocked; he was on medication and looked well when he left the house.
Last Saturday, when I was in my hometown (Medan), my family had a simple prayer ceremony for my late father at home.
Time really flies; he was the greatest man I’ve ever known!
