Menarik Untuk Ibu-Ibu dan Bakal Ibu...

A man came home from work and found 3 children outside, still in their pajamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn around garden, The door of his wife's car was open, as was the front door to the house and no sign of the dog, walking in the door, he found even bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, the throw rug was against one wall, In the front room the TV was on loudly with the cartoon channel, the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing. 

In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door. 

He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she might be ill, or that something serious had happened. He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out the bathroom door. 

As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor. Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls. As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pajamas, reading a novel... She looked up at him, smiled and asked how his day went. 

He looked at her bewildered and asked, 'What happened here today?' She again smiled and answered, 'You know every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in the world do I do all day?...

''Yes," was his incredulous reply..

She answered, 'Well, today I didn't do it.'

(From author of the book What Mothers Do - Especially When It Looks Like Nothing  by Naomi Stadlen)

Hehehehe..Thanks to Fariza for sharing this story.... Siapa kata surirumah tu takde kerja? Bila dia betul-betul 'tidak bekerja', baru semua orang noticed!!

Nak share cerita berikut...saya telah copy dari blog orang gak ni ...hopefully dia tak marah,huhu...


Clean or Messy Houses
When moms working out-of-the house leave their homes, they stay clean or messy, the way they were left.  The kitchen is not being used, the kids are not being fed in that house, because someone else is watching them; paid or unpaid.

When stay-at-home moms stay home – especially with small children – they are at home preparing a meal every 2-3 hours and messing up the kitchen.  The kids (if healthy) will mess up the house – constantly.  And since she’s home, mom decides she should take care of various household chores, tasks, and projects, creating more mess.

Schedule and Structure vs. Utter Chaos
Working moms’ days are more scheduled and structured – they simply cannot change their day, or drop everything to tend to someone else’s needs.  No one thinks working moms “don’t have anything better to do”, so they are not asked as often to drop everything to stop at the bank, or pick up the dry cleaning in the middle of their important scheduled work time – So less interruptions and falling behind with work.

Stay-at-home moms can go from cooking to cleaning to running errands to sitting in a pediatrician’s office for hours.  It’s very hard to keep a schedule when everyone, including the working mom thinks, her job is not that important.  It can be done later, let’s help everyone else.

Helping Hands
Husbands of working mothers are more likely to help as well, because of the same thing – the working mom is busy and needs help.  I hear it all the time; they help in the kitchen more often, bathe or tell kids bed time stories.  Hey, some even help with homework!

But why would stay-at-home moms need help, anyways?  They stay home and do nothing all day!  Sometimes they clean house, but how hard is that, right?  Even some grandparents and other friends and family tend to think along these lines.  Although stay-at-home moms have the privilege to stay with their kids and raise them themselves (and it is a privilege), that doesn’t mean its endless bliss.

Grown-Up Time
When away at work, working moms get to socialize with co-workers, be it a good thing or bad.  They get to interact with other adults – people who think on their level.  When they get home, they start fresh, anew with their lovely kids and change pace – mom’s happy to see them because they’ve been apart all day.  Then, at the end of a week or two, they get a check; be it large or small – it’s a check, even if they pay bills with all of it, it’s their own money.

Stay-at-home moms deal with children all day, many of whom never seem to tire of fighting, yelling, arguing, and throwing fits.  Kids want attention when mom is trying to do her chores or work on something important.  Stay-at-home moms hardly get to watch the shows they want to, since baby is watching Sprout, or the kids have cartoons after school, or their husband wants to rule the remote when he gets home from work.

Achievements vs. Laundry
Working moms get to partake in projects and assignments that, while challenging and even irritating, actually accomplish something in the end.  This can be anything from contributing to a presentation or landing a great client for the company – the fact is, she gets to see some kind of progress.

Stay-at-home moms have jobs that are redundant and never ending, so they don’t get to feel self-actualized until the babies are older – IF they did a good job.  There’s always the guilty feeling of, no matter what you do ALL day long, “Did I really spend enough time with the kids?” just like any working mom.

No matter how many years they work, or how much over-time they put in, stay-at-home moms do not get any physical checks – not even a measly little one.  Every bit of money spent, the stay-at-home mom knows, came from her husband.  Although not right, this type mom will never feel the money is 100% hers.
A lot of working mothers tease, thinking they have it worse, but at least they have a schedule, a place to go and some self-actualization.  

In the end, being a mom is a challenge, no matter how you approach it.  Stay-at-home moms should got a little more credit and respect for the work they do; it is, in no way at all, the “easy way out” of working – in fact, it’s probably the most work you’ll ever do, and definitely among the most underappreciated.

Moms have to be chefs, managers, event coordinators, mediators, counselors, decorators, accountants, and even other miscellaneous tasks, like music teachers and seamstresses.  There is virtually no way to train for being a mother, yet society tends to look down on these women as “not doing anything with their lives” – not doing anything?  How about shaping the mind and heart of a human being so that they can be a powerful, contributing factor in society?

Moms do hard, hard work, whether they go into an office every day or stay at home.  It’s important that everyone – including mothers themselves – recognize how hard a mom works and appreciates all the big (and little) things that moms do every day .

Lagu Yang Sesuai Untuk Wanita Yang Frust Bercinta

Panjang la pulak title entry nih...saje je buat gempak. Bukan lagu ciptaan sendiri, alaaahhhh..lagu Adele-Someone Like You...Selalu dengar tapi tak pernah sibuk nak tau lirik...tiba-tiba bila baca lirik ni, macam menarik pulak...

Sesuai untuk wanita yang frust, pastuh ex-boyfriend kahwin lain...Hari kenduri dia, pegi pulak walau tak diundang...Banyak kes macam ni berlaku di kalangan sedare dan kawan-kawan kita,kan...Saje nak share...Adele pun menangis tau masa konsert dia kat Royal Albert Hall tuh...


"Someone Like You"
I heard that you're settled down
That you found a girl and you're married now.
I heard that your dreams came true.
Guess she gave you things I didn't give to you.

Old friend, why are you so shy?
Ain't like you to hold back or hide from the light.

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it.
I had hoped you'd see my face and that you'd be reminded
That for me it isn't over.

Never mind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don't forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
"Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead, "

You know how the time flies
Only yesterday was the time of our lives
We were born and raised
In a summer haze
Bound by the surprise of our glory days

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it.
I'd hoped you'd see my face and that you'd be reminded
That for me it isn't over.

Never mind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don't forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
"Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead."

Nothing compares
No worries or cares
Regrets and mistakes
They are memories made.
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?

Never mind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you
Don't forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
"Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead."

Never mind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don't forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
"Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead."


Betul la bercinta ni kadang manis,kadang pahit,masam,kelat pun ada....Macam berkahwin juga la, bukan sepanjang masanya manis, semua flavours pun ada...bergantungla kepada kita bagaimana nak menelan rasa-rasa itu...Ada orang termasam sikit je, terus buang..tak sanggup dah nak rasa...tapi ada juga yang telan je masam-masam pun sebab kadang-kadang walau masam mulanya, ada kemungkinan dihujungnya terbit rasa manis...!

So,what's your flavour ?

Legoland bukak September ni !!

Cepat..cepat...boleh beli tiket...Legoland akan dibuka lebih awal dari yang saya ambik info Yahoo News

KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) - Asia's first Legoland theme park, dedicated to the popular toy bricks, will open in Malaysia in September, several months ahead of schedule, the company said on Wednesday.
Siegfried Boerst, general manager of Legoland Malaysia, said more than 35,000 annual passes had already been sold for the park featuring more than 40 roller coasters, race cars and other attractions in southern Johor state.
Of those, more than one third had been sold in neighbouring Singapore.
About one million people are expected to visit the 76-acre (31-hectare) park in the first year.
The park is already 75 percent complete with most of the rides and infrastructure in place. Contractors will begin next month to install the Lego models made out of more than 50 million bricks, Boerst said.
When completed, Legoland Malaysia will be the sixth of its kind in the world featuring the Danish toy bricks after those in Denmark, Britain, California, Florida and Germany.
A Legoland Hotel, also Asia's first and the world's fourth, is to open next to the Malaysia park in 2014. Groundwork began last month.
Legoland will be one of the main attractions of Iskandar Malaysia -- a dedicated economic development zone that plans to attract more theme parks.
The park borders Singapore, which opened Southeast Asia's first Universal Studios entertainment complex in 2010.
But developers say the new park would complement Universal Studios Singapore rather than compete with it for customers.

Jom reramai pergi Legoland....hopefully best la...
