I promised that we would make a butterfly… so we made a butterfly.

Back to Some Cuteness

June 25th, 2012

After my weekend ordeal of being in the hospital, I thought I need to do something cute to cheer myself up just a bit. So I got a little Hello Kitty figurine for Little Bee and made her some funny face nigiri for her dinner :)

Kindle Surprise

June 21st, 2012

Hubby gave me a Kindle for my birthday in April.

For someone who loves books, I haven’t done much reading for a while. Ever since I had Little Bee, I just haven’t found the time to dedicate myself to reading. This could be good in one way as it saves me money as I haven’t been flicking through books in book shops for ages.

But not reading is also bad. It used to be my way to escape. Nowadays I’m so exhausted that I’d just fall asleep or park myself on the sofa to watch mindless TV. Not good at all.

However, I have started going to the library with Little Bee and reading to her during bedtime to instill the love of reading in her. She loves listening to stories but she knows she will have to learn to read by herself eventually.

Back to my original statement on the Kindle that Hubby bought for me.

I was skeptical at the beginning as I couldn’t bear the thought of substituting the feeling of holding a book but I could also see the benefits.

When we were away for our Malaysia trip, I didn’t have to haul six or seven books (which I never intended to read as I won’t have time) with me. All was in the very light Kindle.

I’ve also found myself browsing for free books on Amazon and ‘buying’ books that I don’t normally buy. And now, instead of having unread books everywhere in our every messy house, I have them neatly in my Kindle, ready for me to read when ever I choose to.

I might lose the pleasure of holding a book and turning the pages but I have now gained virtual space to keep the books in and discovering the pleasure of finding moments that I’m able to read.

One day, I will discover time to read again.

Butterfly in Zoo Negara Malaysia

I didn’t take a lot of photos on this trip to Malaysia but it’s hard not to take some photos of the butterflies when we were in Zoo Negara in Kuala Lumpur. Little Bee loved it in there. Running around chasing the butterflies with her cousin DA.

Butterflies in Changi Airport

After two and a half weeks in Malaysia… I’m back to this messy house… I have laundry to do… lots to sort our and Little Bee is begging for my attention. I’m going back to work tomorrow and feeling very tired out.

So I’m sitting here with Little Bee watching Coraline, looking through some of the butterfly photos I took at Changi Airport in Singapore and surrounded by the mess in the front room… wishing…
