Nothing to wear !

Oh no. I think I have bought too many clothes. I can just about hear hubby snickering somewhere 

 Yes. Clothes my biggest weakness, although I also have a weakness for shoes and bags but clothes are my ultimate sin.

I spent a whole weekend apparently cleaning out my closet, and loaded two full big bags of clothes to give away to my sister-in-laws.

Kamila also came along and took two bags of baju-kurung for college and I still have some more. TSK.

  But still my closet is still like a shipwreck gone wrong with all the clothes that konon konon I still aspire to fit into or will do something about. HAHAHA.

My mission now is to salvage all my old clothes and wear them to work or at least wear them somewhere so they will see the light of day.

You know those days when you wish you were alone.
Those type of days come often to me. Although it is almost impossible to do now. I like my alone time, and if I can manage it, I adore my alone days.

I just like to retreat into my shell. And sort of change skin like a snake. Its very rejuvenating. I cannot deal with people 365 days. I sort of get a bad allergic reaction.

Does this make me a ‘Bad Mother’?

So when I came across this book written by Ayelet Waldman I could understand where she was coming from. Ayelet had written an article in the New York Times entitled “ Truly Madly Guiltily”.

She had expressed that she loved her children but that she loved her husband more. THE HORROR. THE SHOCK. All hell broke loose after that. She was branded a bad mother a traitor to the sisterhood. There were people who wanted to take her children away.

For me I think she was just being honest.

So who do you love? As for me it is just different types of love not if it is less or more just different. Both very intense. But different.

I adore my daughter to bits. And I love my husband. I relish my alone time

the eye smile

I was glad my father was an eye-smiler. It meant he never gave me a fake smile because it's impossible to make your eyes twinkle if you aren't feeling twinkly yourself. A mouth-smile is different. You can fake a mouth-smile any time you want, simply by moving your lips. I've also learned that a real mouth-smile always has an eye-smile to go with it. So watch out, I say, when someone smiles at you but his eyes stay the same. It's sure to be a phony.
