Another Year ..

Today is our wedding anniversary,

Today is your birthday, my dear beloved husband

Today is another year to celebrate

Another year to create precious memories together.

Another year to discover new things to enjoy about each other.

Another year to build a life rich in love and laughter.

Another year to strengthen marriage that defines "forever."

No party, no fancy vacation, no present .. we just celebrate our special day at home with the first time 'turkey' that I ever made :)
And the funny things was when I went to flea market 2 days before, I found this "cute" little plate for only 40cent. There is a label behind the plate said Made In Italy. And that made me wonder, about the year of production but didn't find any specific information about this plate but you still can find in eBay with price $12,- Oh, well.. not really treasury things ^__^ but I buy with a really..really good price
So, what you think ? Doesn't it look cute ..

My Little Sunshine wants a rainbow ..

I quite busy to take care of my sick baby since last week . She complained about throat-ache after came back from Science Centre with dad. And it got worse the day after, her body temperature so high, i knew that I can't just wait . So, we decided to take her to Emergency Room. That was late night, and we came back home 5 hours latter. The result came negative. It was mean, she just got common flu, no need to worry.

2 days after, she still sick and more worse than before. Sometime she look normal in the morning, but always has high fever at night , got bad dream and screamed alot. And with the swine flu out-break around the world, I more and more worry. Again, I took her to pediatrician. This time, doctor said.. 'she is actually healthy kid, just common flu and no antibiotic need, just buzz with vitamins only'

Hmm.. i can take a breath a little bit, no need to worry.. but honest to GOD, I couldn't do regular activity, she just want me 'around' her . That was probably good for me too. To take a rest for while.

No bake(ing), No 'hard' cook(ing), No chatt(ing), No face book(ing) !! LOL. But, you know me, I can't just relax do nothing, so I made a little toy for her, to make her smile . It was hard little bit, since I have no basic sewing skill, and finally I made it after 3 days struggle to put leg together hahahahah..

Finally after 10 days , she back on the track, she feels more better and already has special request, she said : "mommy, I want a rainbow cake"

Oh, well.. its time to back to the kitchen :D
