Conversations with the husband #8

By |February 3rd, 2014|

Happy Chinese New Year everyone. I’m back with a quick “Conversations with the husband” post while I try and recover from the post CNY fatigue. It’s been a few days of madness and sleep deprivation and I wished I had taken leave to recover from all these. Definitely don’t feel as young anymore!

Will try posting from frequently this week!

Conversations with the husband #8

We had an extremely exhausting evening a couple of days ago (pre cny) while managing 2 kids and staying hungry till midnight. It was one of those days that left me fuming for hours and kept questioning myself why  the hell I had kids. Believe me.. It was real bad and I haven’t felt like that for months.

Jerome was really cranky but refused to sleep for hours. Jerry was being his attention seeking self and being annoying and kept shooting me questions machine gun style […]

Funny conversations with the husband #6 and #7

Conversations with the husband #6 

Honestly, I don’t really know if the conversations are funny, or irritating and totally a pain in the arse but I choose to see the humour side of things because this is one person that I need to spend the rest of my life with, and my mantra is all about living and being happy so I process everything with a pinch of salt.

The husband was irritating the hell outta me earlier and I was on the brink of exploding and trying scheme against him when I suddenly had a *light bulb moment*

C: stop irritating me, else I’ll go back home, take your watches and do giveaways on my blog one by one! Let’s start with the daytona.
D: woah. . Easy there.  Easy there. *flash me an innocent smile*
C: *feeling triumph and imagining that I’m pumping fist in […]

conversations with the husband #4 and #5

Conversations with the husband #4

Quick update: My little chub chub is still sick and running the possibility of a hospital admission. sigh. We are gonna nebulize him for 2 days in hope he gets better else we will be reporting to the hospital for admission. I do hope that doesn’t happen. it’s bad enough that both kids are sick and we blew 600+ at the doc’s today.

mean while, I haven’t recorded the funny conversations with the husband for a while so here’s one.

(I saw a really cute girl on the streets and wished I could have a girl..)
me: if we had a girl, would you dote on the girl more as compared to the boys?
der: no. I’m impartial. I will dote on whoever is obedient.
me: you sure? but daddy always dote on their daughters isn’t it? I thought there is a saying… (me trying to recall)
der: …that daughters are […]

conversations with the husband #3

Conversations with the husband #3

after a super frustrating bedtime routine with a toddler who simply refused to sleep for > 2 hours.. my tempers were flaring and I really was on the verge of strangling him or giving him away to another family. I was so tired, super sick and I badly wanted to grab some rest. so after loads of struggles, cries, whines, disciplinary acts and hugging daddy’s leg. I ignored him for the longest time and he fell asleep.  in the above position, over my blanket but under my bolster.


daddy and I finally sat down to have dinner at close to midnight, packed his school bag for tomorrow, washed the dishes and the milk bottles, bathe (the weather is killing) and now, I’m being the ‘milk maid’ while typing this.


the kid is still in the same position, sleeping.


me: tonight was a frustrating […]

conversations with the husband #2

Conversations with the husband #2.

so, we have been shopping non stop every weekend or on the days the husb gets to leave work earlier for the home. furniture, appliances, toilet accessories, basins, faucets, lightings or some times, just for ideas and inspiration.

while browsing in a furniture shop one day and spotting a wardrobe that has anti-slam door systems and drawers..

c: woah! i like!
d: what you like about it?
c: the doors and the drawers of the wardrobe, all fitted with the anti-slam thingy. i think we must have that in our house for our wardrobes (we have only planned to have it in the kitchen thus far)
d: why? kitchen have good enough what.
c: hmmm.. i see it as marriage maintenance. you know. if anyone of us gets angry, we can’t slam the doors/drawers no matter what. even if you really slam, no sound at all. the other party won’t get […]

conversations with the husband #1

By |April 9th, 2013|

am starting this series of “conversations with the husband” to jot down the funny snippets of conversations between the husband and me. I find some of the conversations that we have totally wacky, and some times, just plain irritating. should be fun noting them down.

[was sharing with husb on a girlfriend who had to hint very very hard for the bf to give her a bouquet of flowers]

c: what is it that guys dont get about sending flowers to their girlfriends? (actually indirectly directing the message to husb as well)
d: hmmm… [silence]
c: aiyah, i know already. next time i don’t bother hinting. i should just go select my bouquet of flowers and then enter your credit card details. so much easier, and confirm the bouquet i will like!
d: wah! that’s daylight robbery.
c: no what. it saves you all the trouble you know? and […]
