Busy busy busy

After two consecutive weekends in Langkawi, I was kept busy…

…setting revision questions for Yiu Yiu for her exams next week.


…booking flight tickets, planning, researching and emailing travel agents/guides for our upcoming family trip.

…applying passport for Yan Yan, and renewing Yiu Yiu’s passport.

The girls' mugshots for their passports

…doing my medical check-up, which I missed for the last two years.

…visiting the dentist for the annual scaling and polishing (with Yiu Yiu in tow, and thankfully her teeth are still in good condition so the dentist didn’t need to do anything).

…opening the girls CNY angpow and depositing the loot into their accounts (yeah, this is that looonnnggg overdue!).


…renewing my annual practicing certificate.

…pampering myself with one of the massage vouchers from Everyday.com.

There are still a few things which remains unaccomplished…
…uploading hubby’s old car to Mudah for sale.
…submitting the insurance claim for my windscreen which was damaged when a lorry drove past, resulting in a pebble hitting the windscreen.
…doing my photobooks. Seriously hoping that I can get this done by year end – another long outstanding project. This may not be mission impossible, since I’ve accumulated many days of annual and replacement leave that I can practically take the whole December off.

Cny angpows for which year? I didn't open my kids angpows for more than three years, and that includes their birthday angpows, so I am more guilty but finally done that this year. So where are you heading to? How time flies, our babies will be graduating soon!

I didn't open or bank in my kids angpows for more than 3 years, yup... and finally did that this year. So, I'm more guilty. Think I just simply calculate interest and added in for them. Hehehe... I need to go dentist too, not too fond, sigh.

prince n princess mum said...

Going where for vacation? Enjoy ya!

Kit said...

Love your list! We Moms always have never ending things to do, huh?

I salute you for setting revision questions. Me? I'd just buy a few sets from the bookstore...

I've just been clearing our photo album too - the boy's birthday's coming up and I haven't even printed out this year's birthday celebration pics :S

Hey, is the photobook paper thick? I got one done at the Kodak shop, which look ghastly!

chanelwong said...

A lot of things for your to do in such a short period? salute you...

Irene - they are this year's angpow. You even more terror than me, three years! Haha!

chinnee - yeah lor, when I was free, I forgot to open. When I happen to open the drawer and saw those angpows, inevitably I would be busy with something else. So only finally did it.

LittleLamb - can list down and complete all your tasks in December.

prince & princess mum - yup, had wanted to go to this country since many years back. Now only we are finally going.

Kit - the kindy provide us with the specific syllabus and pages of their text and workbooks to be tested. So can't buy off the shelves leh.

Only one year yet to be printed? That's not too bad. I've only done Yiu Yiu album for ages 1-2. So you can imagine how many more albums there are to complete!!

For the photobooks, I use www.photobook.com.my. Their quality is one of the best from my experience. I've done easily 7-8 books with them. Never tried printing the books at the regular photo shops.

Chanel - one thing that I've yet to start is baking :-)
