today is my hubby's Birthday and his now ... hahaha sorry it's censored i can't tell you guys how old is he now, he already stop counting 15 years ago! me too i stop counting last year we nailed it down already hahaha
he's so funny, I wonder why he ask me last night to mix a few drinks for him, I told him, " I thought you already stop counting 15 years ago and you're too scared when your birthday is coming" he simply said " I'm celebrating" I get confused? anyway when we wake up this morning i great him again, I ask him i though you dont want to celebrate your birthday because you don't want to add another year in your calendar and sound old, He said " last night I'm just celebrating the last day of my age 44 coz now I'm 45. oh that it is now!

why most of us doesn't know what will make us happy or contented in life!
we think that if we have a great job it will make us happy but when we get a great job, still we don't feel contented and want something else that we think might make us happy. then we wish to meet our dream partner in life settle down and live happily ever after... but LIVE HAPPILY EVER AFTER is only part of our fairytale dreams! how can we be happily ever after when we are trying to start a family when all the monthly bill's accumulate! separate our wants and needs and only buy the needs and forget the wants!
and save money to buy house and work hard for the mortgage!
life is so funny sometimes coz even if we have savings we're still worried and we want our savings to grow, how can we be happy and contented in life? or try to be happy and contented without getting worried what might come ahead...
but i bet there are few people on earth that are happy and contented on the life they choose to live on... cheers to them... i wish all of us will fell the sweetness of being happy and contented in life!
i forgot when i started to love cooking, but since i know how to cook, i can't stop it and it became my fashion. I love to cook and make my friends and family taste it, they said i cook good and it's yummy! really? I went to restaurant taste their food and experiment when i came home, and the result is pretty good, until i became the cook in the family, in any gatherings we have in the family they call me to cook their favorite dishes, though its exhausting cooking different kind of dishes and dessert for the party, it's rewarding for me when they appreciate my cooking.
when i met my husband i've earned big points in his heart when he learn that i love cooking, especially when he taste the foods I've cook, now that we're married his family ask him why he gained so much weight! and he told them "blame my wife for that! she cook good, she's always feeding me and i can't resist her cooking"
sometime when i cook sweets like cookies, cakes, pies, cheese cake, he said "I don't want to taste or no thank you" then i leave the food by his side, gosh when i come back the food is all gone! he ate 'em all!
he decided to loose weight and work out again because he used to be body builder before and he maintain his figure by going to the gym 3 times a week but he just end up eating all what i'm cooking for him,
and i've decided to limit my home cooking, or prepare just enough for the two of us, but he complain because he like to refill....
i get well known on my hubby's family side that i'm a good cook, but hey i don't like to cook for them hahaha
i don't know why i LOVE to cook...

today is the 4th day of my driving lesson, my instructor told me that I'm doing good already but i need to complete some more 5 lessons at least before i can take road test.
let me share you my experience, you might find it hilarious, but my instructor needs to carry a lot of PATIENCE with him every time his teaching me, I'm so scared going out to traffic area's where there are cars moving and there's speed limit, on our 1st day he teach me how to control the car by controlling the break and gas moving the car so slow and making it stop without jerking, i do good in couple try, then he made me roll the car and try making turns on curves, and i became a defensive driver, i get so scared that i might hit those park cars there since where doing my lessons on a residential area, i make turn and make cuts on the other side of the road and too scared the the car I'm driving might hit the curve! I know that I'm giving my instructor hard time, but i can't help my self!
2nd day we go by the airport area, and start by the parking area and a couple try, I get what his trying to teach me and we end up in a busy hi-way! I've asked my instructor "do you trust your life on me?" Good job to my self i can drive 30-35 mph, blend in the traffic and i can even switch lane and can drive straight even make a sharp curve.
3rd day! i have problems on my turnings AGAIN I got rusted! i blew off what I've learned the day before, shame on me! maybe my instructor get tired of me, he told me " we go out to traffic!" is he thinking the right way?! gosh he made me drive at the highway all the way to the FREEWAY! " ARE YOU SERIOUS!?" I don't have any choice where already at the FREEWAY off ramp! just do it baby! let your gut out! that was a good experience driving 50-60mph on the freeway? i can't believe i made it safe and we reach where we supposed to go, Lord I LOVE U for making my freeway experience SAFE!!! But when i reach the freeway GOD i GOT so freaking COLD my body feels like trembling! i don't know why! maybe i got so excited and happy that im on the freeway driving and at the same time im nervous!!!
