older men vs older women

i attended a forum yesterday at jalan timur office and had lunch at amcorp mall with a few collegues. as we were walking towards our respective cars at the carpark after lunch, a male colleague made a comment along this line... i noticed that men, as they grow older, they have more choices of younger women.

since i had already approached my car, i couldn't think of a witty answer to that. i just said... look at the number of kids slippers in my car... we women are not interested in that. i got into my car and reflected on what he said earlier.

when i got to my office, i called his extension:

me: i have an answer to what you said earlier.
him: (he laughed) you had the time to think of your come back, is it? (so typical of me isn't it? i wouldn't let him go with that statement.)
me: as we women grow older, we are more interested in men who are matured and stable rather than some young immatured guys. unlike men who go after young women to compensate for their insecurity.
him: and then, what?
me: we have a matured relationship.

well, i guess it is true except for those relationships that turn into extra marital affairs. that is inviting disaster lah. generally speaking, we women would need good friends who are able to enrich our lives and provide the feel good factor, if you know what i mean.

my two year old's language development

i used to be very worried about my son's language development... the only word that i remember him using is amma (so sweet) but he blabbers and chats away baby talk. all of a sudden at 23rd. month, he demonstrated some development and from thereon i can see that he is picking up more and more words by the day.... i noticed that he could say the words but we need to work on the clarity of his pronunciation.

he was picking up mostly one syllable words beginning with bilabial sounds and now to other words. his current collection of words are:

amma, ball, daddy, car, paw paw, boo boo (instead of poo poo), come, kakak.... says his a, b and c till i (though he points to his eyes the moment daddy taught him to say the letter i). he imitates us reading doa and reciting surahs. this list should be continuing. i must pay more attention so that i know and understand what he is trying to communicate to us.

he used to throw tantrums in the middle of the night should i have delayed in giving him his milk. one day, i scolded him for being difficult after i pacified and fed him milk. i said, next time you want susu, you must say mummy, susu please... he heard what i said half asleep and nodded. the very next day, my sleep was disturbed by some hissing sounds.... i woke up and i heard my son say... sss pis.. i was so delighted! apparently, it wasn't so difficult to teach my son. i praised him and rushed to mix his milk. we both fell asleep again.

way to go little boy!!! may you grow to be an eloquent orator....

my much awaited nephew

i am very happy to introduce to the world my nephew, ahmad farhan bin kamaludeen.... recently we had a thanksgiving and naming ceremony for this little bundle of joy.
may the AlMighty Allah shower this newborn with lots of blessings, iman, health, wealth, love and happiness. may he be the source of happiness for all those around him especially his parents and loved ones....

birthday present

i had always wanted to get my son a remote control car and i thought he is at the right age to appreciate it. so, we got him one for his birthday. bearing in mind that this little guy could destroy it the moment he gets hold of the car, we got him a simple but elegant one (so i thought).
i also thought that he could play with the remote control car during playtime with daddy since daddy only does rough housing with him. i asked daddy to be responsible of the car and he was as excited as my son.

we really enjoyed the first session with the remote control car.


birthday celebration

part of muhammad nashwan nasr's birthday celebration is a trip to megakidz at mid valley megamall. although this place is not as glamour or having the best of safety features as the jungle gym at BSC, i thought it was worth the try as well as a new place for the kids. at least, i know which is the better one for future outings. nevertheless, the children were excited and had a good time there.

while waiting for daddy, the kids could not resist the phone.



video

we also dropped by the pet world and the children were thrilled. i wish i had captured my son in action. this guy has not sense of fear and doesn't realise the associated dangers. this makes me having to be more careful with him, especially when on the roads.
i can't wait for this little guy to grow up and understand his world....

Life Is a Gift

i found this in my inbox and i felt like sharing with all my dear readers...

Today

Before you say an unkind word
Think of someone who can't speak.

Before you complain about the taste of your food
Think of someone who has nothing to eat.

Before you complain about your husband or wife
Think of someone who's crying out to GOD for a companion

Today

Before you complain about life
Think of someone who died too early on this earth

Before you complain about your children
Think of someone who desires children but they're barren

Before you argue about your dirty house someone didn't clean or sweep
Think of the people who are living in the streets

Before whining about the distance you drive
Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet

And when you are tired and complain about your job
Think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job

But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another
Remember that not one of us is without sin

And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down
Put a smile on your face and think: you're alive and still around!
