Commercial houses

Hubs and I took E to the Kizsports Gym & Playland in Bangsar Village II on Monday, during the Deepavali public holiday. It was early still (well, relatively), about 11 a.m. Traffic was smooth. We were due to meet Charlie, Shen & baby Gavin there for a few hours of riotous fun. I love the […]

A Problem

You have a problem, he says. Because he is my husband and he says this, like he is perfect, I resent him. I get angry. I become defensive. I cook up reasons why I don’t have a problem. I tell him, this is my money. I’ve earned it through sheer hard work. I want to spoil […]

Writing Project: Chapter 18

The pain came suddenly. Intense. Beyond the wildest imagination of men. He knew from experience that it would last only a few hours, and then go away. What the pain left, though would be emblazoned in his memory forever. But the passing seconds felt like an eternity. He stifled a scream, curled his fist into […]

Retail Therapy

I’ve over-done the retail therapy thing. I tell myself, everytime I buy a new pair of shoes I don’t really need, or a handbag that costs more than my daughter’s bi-annual kindy fees, that I’m treating myself. That I deserve a gift. That I work hard for my money and therefore I should be able […]

Whoever said that…

…money doesn’t make the world go round, or that it doesn’t bring happiness, or that it’s less important than love and health- is a big fat liar! Money SO makes things work, and I’d be happy beyond words if only I had more money. As it is, I had to fork out over almost 2 […]

Home Improvement (2)

I returned home pretty late last night, and was in a mad rush to take a shower and pick up my daughter from my parents’ home. I was also hungry, because it was already 9.30 p.m. and my lunch dissolved at about 5 p.m. I bundled up the stairs, removing my clothes as I did, into […]

Home improvement (1)

I was talking to my maid last night about my plans to re-model / improve my home. She seemed enthusiastic when I told her I was planning to convert the study room downstairs into a little bedroom for her, complete with a new single bed, mattress and bedding. And yes, a chest of drawers. She […]

Toolbox

Last night, I wanted to fix a piece of costume jewellery of mine- it was a lovely beaded necklace, but the clasp had come off and I couldn’t wear it anymore. All it needed was a good pull with a pair of pliers, a nifty squeeze, a hook and voila, it’d be as good as […]

Have you ever felt…

…..like there aren’t enough hours in a day? And when you get home after a long day’s work, you have so little time to spend with your loved ones. …..uncomfortable when a man stares admiringly at you? Never mind that he’s dog-ugly. …..intimidated by a person who towers over you like St. George’s dragon? …..fat […]

Mortgages

I seriously need to free up some cash. I’m going for a long holiday in LA at the end of this year (hopefully), and at the rate I’m spending these days (not on shopping or clothes or bags- but just spending in general for my household and family), I’m going to be flat-out broke by […]
