My Greatest Valentine Gift

At last my long-time suffering on fixing our computer has finally ended. Heheheh.. This week, hubby decided to buy me a new computer set as a valentine gift. Its a good idea to buy new computer for me to have much time doing the household chores. Spending more time troubleshooting the computer's problem is not healthy, because it can consume most of my time and leaving me headache as well. I am back... blogging here i come... go go go go..

A Valentine Gift

A sweet and simple gift from hubby on valentines day. Thank you very much lav.. I love you very much...

A Black Friday the 13th Party

A day before valentines was Friday the 13th. A black Friday the 13th party has been organized by hubby's officemates and I was invited to join. I really enjoyed their company especially everyone cooperates. Some were playing billiard, some were dancing and singing. For a long busy week of work, all i could say is that having such gathering is worth to unwind and releases pressure.

For these past days, hubby and I were busy packing our things ready for transfer to a new place. Just yesterday afternoon we moved out .

Today, we spend the whole day cleaning the new house and partly unpacking things. It's a long week for me ahead to finish everything in our house.
