Where's my time, dude?

Typical day:
6.00pm - left office for home

6.20pm - reach babysitter's house to pick up little sen

6.30pm - back home with little sen. Played and talked to her for a while..

6.50pm - go out to tar pau dinner. Anne will probably be expressing milk or cleaning up bottles, boil water - doing baby stuff

7.20pm - I come back.. hopefully sen is still quiet and enjoying herself... I'll start eating dinner while watching her and Anne would go bathe.. or it could be the other way round - I bathe and she eats dinner...

I even put his ad on the right side of my blog. Click on that and you can read the first 20 pages of the book.

Ever since he released the book, I have been meaning to get my hands on one. But it's just too expensive. The hardcover copy cost RM96! So, I waited patiently and last month, the paperback version is out. Retail price was about RM59. No problemo. I just have to wait till it come to Malaysia.

Then last week, while browsing mph.co…

Saw this in my post box. From real estate agent trying to get
houseowner to sell their properties. What caught my eyes are the table
that recorded recent sales.
Doesn't look like the economy downturn is affecting properties in
Bandar Utama.
