After staying in the hospital for three nights, my sister was discharged this morning. The bill came to RM7,395.00 without any insurance claim. On the other hand, a patient in the same room with my sister, she broke her ankle too but her bill came to RM11,000 because she has personal accident insurance. :) But of course, the difference could be due…Continue

Supposedly to be a happy occasion, my sister and her family went to the bride's house to congratulate her before the wedding dinner. According to my sister, the kitchen was very wet and all of a split second, she just fell and she felt something not right immediately after that... she couldn't get up at all, the pain on her ankle was too excruciating!
Immediately my brother-in-law carried her to the car... and despite the pain, she called me... and I advised her to go to a private…

I've always lived with in driving distance of my family. Now that we've moved to a different state I was wondering how I would be able to handle being so far away from them. I come from a very close nit family and I grew up with frequent "get togethers". Isabel has also been very close with her cousin Nathan. From the moment they were born they've seen each other almost every week for play time. At this point they even have their own language. …

I am totally hyped to say that my Thanksgiving was awesome. I spent it with the people I love, it was quiet and peaceful, and the food was amazing. Way to go, Mom, by the way! I skipped Black Friday because besides being broke beyond belief, I wanted to just lay around with my babies. And that is exactly what we did. My children enjoyed a 5 hour Power Rangers marathon, again, which I ain't gonna lie, I did…Continue

Are you a marathon shopper? Maybe the one that get to the stores the night before a HUGE sale for the best deals? I've seen some amazing pictures of the deals people have been getting from the Black Friday shopping trips and a part of me (a very SMALL part) wonders what it would be like. continue

We had our "birthday bash" in Farmhouse... or is it Farmhome? hahaha... I am blurred now.... anyway, the three of us (yes, 3's a good company last night) had a good time, savouring the varieties in Hot Pot called Porridge steamboat...
Porridge steamboat is not very popular in Ipoh but I think it is most suitable for those who…

Congratulations, you’re married.
You’re about to enjoy a honeymoon but it won’t be long before the warm, fuzzy fairy-dust of lovey-dovey grossness will settle and you’ll clearly see the relationship you’ve entered.
You’ll bicker over someone’s driving, limited closet space, and hangers.

One of you asked whether I am considering remarriage... the answer is 100% a No, a NO.. and A NO..
One marriage is enough, two times will too much....... ooopsss...sorry, I am speaking for myself only... no offence to anyone...
On the serious note, once upon a time, I did think about it, when my kids were pretty
and young, friends and relatives alike, they encouraged me to get into marriage again... but on the other hand, some jested about "now that…

After a dose of the cough mixture last night, I couldn't get up at 6am this morning despite the alarm beeping loudly... I switched it off and drowsily, I hit the pillow and was in dreamland again. When I finally opened my eyes, it was 8am!! Gosh, my office starts at 8am and I was still in bed!
Ok, never mind lar... drowsy ma, what to do..…

I was told that Manuka honey is good for cough and I remember someone blogged about Manuka recently.... so this morning before going to hospital, I went to the pharmacy to get a bottle of this much-heard-about honey.
Gosh, it was not cheap though.. in fact very expensive... one small bottle of 250gm cost RM64 and the 500gm one cost RM94 ($31usd)...and after some mental calculation, the Big Honey came home...

My little brother was born today. He woke Mom up at three o’clock in the morning because he wanted to come out of her tummy. I was asleep so I didn’t know he was going to be born today. When I woke up, Grandma said, “Good morning,” and told me I was a big brother today. She made my favorite breakfast, yummy waffles with syrup and chocolate milk. How did she know that was my…Continue

A week ago, I was watching the “Sex and the City” episode “An American Girl in Paris (Part Deux)”. The scene where Steve takes his mother to the ER and discovers she unknowingly suffered a stroke that caused her to have significant memory loss, made me think of my paternal grandmother and grandfather.
Along with the millions of others who have stumbled upon my blog you may be scratching your head and asking, “What’s with the name, Diane? Why is this thing called ‘It’s All Good – Until You Burn Dinner?’”…Continue

These days, we know how special it is to receive a real note card in the mail. Like with a stamp on it. Handwritten and all… It’s even more special if it’s also addressed by hand… And how about if it was personalized with a photo stamp to identify to sender? Even more charming.Continue

Once again one of my very favorite holidays has passed me by faster than I could say, "Boo!" Yes, Halloween has come and gone and left me with a massive candy overdose. I seriously don't think I'll be able to look at a Twix bar the same without puking ever again (at least not until next week anyway). The festive weekend was certainly chalked full of all kinds of fun while it lasted though.
It all started with our annual adults-only costume party, which…Continue
