Wordless Wednesday (WW) is a visual blogosphere phenomenon. Whereas blogs (web journals) are primarily about "words" bloggers love to dress their journal entries with imagery. WW is a simple blog post featuring a photo which conveys a message that speaks for itself without using words.
So here goes. This was yesterday.

I know I owe a long blogpost on my trip to Houston, but work hasn't exactly been kind to me these past few weeks. Hopefully when December 14th rolls in, I'll be able to take a step back and start blogging again.
To make things worse, I found out that my dad was admitted to the ICU during our 5th year anniversary dinner last Thursday for high blood pressure, which unfortunately didn't stop him from celebrating his 76th birthday in 'style' yesterday. And the pinacle of it all was when Aiden recorded an all time high fever (bordering 40degC) this morning and was admitted to the hospital for fear of dengue. Thank god it was only viral fever.
So I write this from the hospital bed in Prince Court Medical Centre. Aiden is (finally) sleeping beside me with a drip in line. I swear, it was a harrowing experience for him (and me) when they pricked his vein for blood and inserted an IV line at the emergency room. He has developed an extreme phobia of doctors and nurses and cries bloody murder everytime someone foreign walks into our hospital room.
I am really tired. Hopefully tonight is a peaceful night.

Yup, I had a 10 day meeting in Houston, Texas! Hubby and Aiden tagged along during this business trip and survived a one-way 30 hour (accumulative) flight. We even made a short 3-hour drive to San Marcos to check out the outlets there (as if the two outlets in Houston weren't enough).
Since Hubby and I were in Houston for a month about two years ago, we had done all the touristy stuff back then. And as Aiden is too young to understand the sightseeing, we made this trip specifically a shopping trip.
So where are the pictures, you ask? Erm.... to be honest, I don't even know where to start. So bear with me while I sort through this 167 new work emails before finally getting to choosing the pictures, editing and blogging about it. But for now, all you need to know is that it was definitely an experience keeping Aiden occupied in a long-haul flight, we had soooooooo much fun shopping and we brought home 100kg worth of luggage.
And still, I have some shopping regrets. I am mad, sometimes.

And it is official. Hubby received the call today, he has been offered a new job back in KL. Putting aside the extra salary (which is of course a bonus!), we are extremely happy that this job is in sunny ol' Malaysia, which means he finally gets to come home for good! And we finally finally finally get to move to our new house!
Can you see how being a single mother for one whole year has affected me? I am DELIRIOUSLY HAPPY that he will be home, soon!!!

It all started that one fine day when we were at the new house, choosing wallpaper.
And while I was busy doing the honours of putting the curtains up, I saw a LOT of activity going around the land right outside my house fence! This was my view from my family hall window.

Aiden was occupied with crayons and colouring cartoons.
Aiden loves feeding us all. I wonder why...
