My Precious May

When May came back from the clinic after Chinese New Year on the 13 Feb 13, she was really weak and groggy. Furthermore, she has two serious sores. 

one at her shoulder

and another on her thigh

When I came back from my Greece tour on the 5 March, her wound has improved slightly.



Last Sunday, my husband gave her a bath for the second time since she came back.

Her wound on her shoulder has healed completely.

Her sore on her thigh has improved a lot 
but I still bandage it after cleaning it and putting the herbal stuff on it.
It's about the size of a twenty sen now.
It will heal completely soon.
I have been taking care of her for one and a half month already.

I know my girl has been praying very hard for her.
Thank-you girl..
and
Thank-you Lord!

New Experience

Recently I had visited my dentist to have a quick check on my teeth and then I made an appointment for scaling. At the appointed date, I had scaling and three fillings too. After that, the dentist advised me to fill up the space in between my molars. Implants would be too expensive. She asked me if I would like bridging or denture. So I thought bridging would be better as I had an experience before with denture many years ago. I didn't use it regularly and finally I had to throw away.

Then I changed my mind, bridging is very expensive too. I wanted to do denture instead as nowadays denture is the flexible type. 

So yesterday morning, I went to collect my denture..

The dentist just fixed the denture for me once and I practised once.
I knew how to do it already.
Very simple.


Back to the shop, my staff was using the walkie-talkie which the boss bought just 2 days ago.
I tried using it and it was fun!



Since I came back from work earlier, I took my son out for dinner at Moven Peak in Greentown.

Cheesy toast

Chicken King fried Rice

my plate of Garlic Butter Chicken Rice

I found it so uncomfortable to eat with my denture on..
I have yet to get used to it..

Goodbye Raja

Raja was our Bangladesh part-timed worker at our shop. He worked at two places. He only came to our shop at 7pm. On Saturdays, he worked full time at our place as his first working place had a break every Saturday. Whenever he had no work over there, he would come to our place. He was such a hardworking man. He had worked with us for three years but he had been in Malaysia for 6 years. 

Yesterday was his last day. He's going back to his mother land soon. The boss loves him very much as he was a good worker. So he bought a gift for him..

Guess we gonna miss Raja too..

Goodbye, Raja!
May Allah bless you and may you get back to your family safely.

By the way, there is a facebook page specially for my staff and workers.
You are welcome to visit here.

At Random

Last week was the first time I saw this little girl. She was with her grandfather who asked her to call me, 'Lady Boss'.  I was surprised she called me. So I wanted to carry her. She allowed me to do so. From that day onwards, I always notice her whenever she comes.

Few days ago, she came again and let me carry her. She took a picture with me. She was all smiles. When I asked her to kiss me, she really did so on my cheek. I gave her a kiss on her cheek too.


Today she came again. I gave her a bar of Zip chocolate biscuit and she was so happy.


By the way, my shop is having, "My Pet Contest" since two weeks ago. It closes this Friday. So if you have a pet, you are most welcome to share your pet's pictures with us here.


Now there are 6 entries..All dogs except a rabbit. Hope to see other pets too such as cats, fish and birds.

At the meantime, Pureen is also given away shopping bags when my customers buy any Pureen products.


There are 4 colors.  Here green represents 'frog'.
What about the other colors?
Find out at ChangJiangEnt.

Elephants collection

Ever since I was young, I love elephants. I remembered the movie, 'Elephants My friends'(Haathi Mere Saathi). It was a touching story. But I don't know why my husband likes elephants. He said that elephants have God spirit.

Let's take a look at my husband's collection of elephants.

UTC-The Perak Urban Transformation Centre

The Perak Urban Transformation Centre (UTC) here has drawn more than 47,000 visitors within a month since it opened at the end of December in 2012.
Second Finance Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah said the UTC, located in the building, which used to house the Super Kinta supermarket had 57 agencies providing various services for the convenience of the public.
Ahmad Husni said the Perak UTC measuring 157,000 sq ft in size was bigger than the Kuala Lumpur UTC and Malacca UTC, with 33 and 74 agencies respectively.
"The number of agencies placed at the UTCs is not based on the size of the premises but on the residents' needs," he said. Among the agencies placed at the Perak UTC are Tenaga Nasional Berhad, Ipoh City Council, National Registration Department, Land and District Office and the Perak Water Board.

The first time I heard about it was from my husband. He went there to renew his passport. He didn't have to go to the Jabatan Imigresen in Meru.

As for me, the first time I went there was to find out regarding my girl's PTPTN. She has received a letter from them. So I went there to enquire about the payment and I was glad that if I pay in a lump sum, I will get a discount of 20%. That's great news.

So I printed out the letter from the office stating the exact amount that I have to pay. This morning, I went there to pay and it was so easy..not much queue.

But it's not easy to find a parking lot. I had parked illegally twice and I was praying that I wouldn't get any summons. I was considered lucky.

More souvenirs

I had to confess something. I was so careless. I had packed my facial items and yet I had forgotten to put them in my luggage as I did last minute packing before I went to Greece. 

Imagine when I reached Athens, I realised that I only had a small amount with me which I put inside my sling bag. The weather was rather cold there and my face became dry. I used my sister's cream and immediately I had face allergy.

My face became red and my skin started peeling. I had to resort to water only. Luckily I was there for only a few days. The moment I was on my way back to Ipoh, I quickly called my beautician to book a facial treatment for the next day.

The next day, when she saw my face condition, she quickly did facial treatment for me. I felt better after that but it took a few days for my condition to subside.

So she and her assistant were the ones that I gave souvenirs first. I gave her a scarf bought in Dubai airport and I gave her assistant this magnet..
Parthenon Athens magnet



As I was walking with my sister to board the plane at the Athens airport, I suddenly recalled that I wanted to get a sling bag for my husband. We found the Armani sling bag..

I bought it without hesitation.



At Poros Island, I bought quite a number of unique magnets..
Guess I bought the most magnets in Athens..
Surprisingly, they are all blue..

Special Gift

I was in Poros Island and when we entered one of the shops, I found a white elephant. Only one and of course I wouldn't miss the chance. I quickly grabbed it and paid for it. It was also discounted. Quite a good bargain. 

It's specially for my husband as he loves elephant figures.
Next time, I will show you his collection.

My girl in UK is a Christian and she likes to have a cross pendant. I had bought a stone cross for her when I was in Prague last year but she doesn't like it. In Athens airport, I found a cross pendant together with a necklace at Swarovski. Told her about it and she loves it. Will keep for her until I see her again.

At Dubai airport, I bought this soft Camel for my girl in college. She loves soft toys so this Camel is added to her collection.
