We all belong to the government

*Election season rantings alert!*

Revealing Politics, asked the DNC attendees and delegates about one of the themes at the convention which is "We belong to the government".


The best response I read to these interviews is from a reader at Hot Air blog ~

Idiots! Put a Republican in the White House and all these tools will be outraged and not want anything to do with the Government. In fact, they’ll be calling for its overthrow.

I love chair

Thanks to Clint Eastwood, I am joining others commemorating National Empty Chair Day, which falls today! Bwahahahahahaha.

Swimming Lessons

Has it been months since I last updated this blog?! My apologies to those who follow my humble blog!

It's now another summer, and as has been in the past, the kids and I are spending the summer in Miri, Malaysia.  It has been a month since we arrived here and we are now nicely adjusted to the hot and humid weather.  Adjusted does not mean we don't feel hot and sweaty but the weather does not bother us as much as when we first arrived.

Swimming lessons at Miri Public Pool

This year, we found a swim instructor for the kids and they have completed all eight lessons.  Eight lessons are supposed to be enough, but I do not think so especially for Denice.  That being the case, I am paying for additional lessons.  Before they started their swim lessons, I had been taking the kids to the public pool where they enjoyed splashing about in the children's pool.

Swimming lessons at KRP pool

This swim instructor also coaches a few primary school students on behalf of Kelab Rekreasi Petroleum (KRP) in Lutong, and gives swimming lessons to a few expatriate kids and when he has to be in Lutong, I will take the kids there too so they can have the lessons there.  The KRP pool is beautiful with some shade, and a very pleasant green surrounding.

I could do with swimming lessons myself, but I'd be too embarrassed to have this instructor teach me!  One of my friends is a certified swim instructor, but she is busier now that she is retired than when she was working full time!

Oh well.

Happy Valentine's Day

It's another year, and another Valentine's Day. Happy Valentine's Day, folks!

The kids received their Valentine's Day cards and cheques from their grandparents early this year.  Their grandmother went on a cruise to Mexico and she wanted to be sure that the grandkids received their cards and cheques by the time she got back from the cruise.

You can just imagine their excitement at receiving a cheque each on Valentine's Day! There they had thought that it was only at Christmas and on their birthdays that cheques/money were part of the gifts! :-)

No, they did not receive such a generous gift from Mom and Dad.  They each got a card and a buck each in the envelope.  They are still at a stage where the amount is not that important - receiving something, no matter how small, is THE excitement!  I am keeping my fingers crossed that they stay this excited for a much longer time!  :-)

As for me, dear hubby gave me a bouquet of roses (last Friday!), a card and an early Valentine's Day lunch.  He didn't want to pay premium prices for the roses on the day itself, and neither did he want to fight the crowd during Valentine's Day dinner!  That's fine by me!

So how has your Valentine's Day been so far?  I hope all is good with you!
