Ng Ng ... Ng Ng ....

Ng Ng .... Ng Ng ...

Question: Ya .. what are the nature need that sounds like Ng Ng ... Ng Ng ...

Answer: Ya correct, helping QN to do her "big business" ... QN vs Poo Poo

My Second Blunder ..

Good day mates ..

My daughter
Noticed any weird thing from the pic above? NO .... Give some more effort ...

Noticed the weird buggy part at the groin area? Ya ya .. I wrongly dress the back part of the pants to the front.. the buggy part was designed to accomodate babies pampers so that baby can be more comfortable in their pants .. Hahaha .. my #2 blunder ..

What else, .. hmm then you have to frequent my blog more often for any updates ....

My First Blunder

Good day mates

My first blunder. Ya exactly my first blunder in taking care of my daughter. As usual, SF helped to bath the baby and I shall be ready with the milk because my beloved QN is very fussy. After the shower, she (QN) must drink milk else she will raise the decibel to 300++. Yeah 300++ no joke. If you are late, then better be prepared to lose your ear-drum... Hahaha.

Now QN is having 4oz of milk. So what I did was

1. Get 3oz of cooked water - (warm/room temp).
2. Add in 4 spoon of milk powder.
3. Add 1oz of hot water.
4. Of course feed the baby with milk

So as usual, QN was so excited to see the milk bottle. She is so in haste in drinking the milk. The weird thing .... she could not suck the milk from the bottle. So SF use her CSI brain to investigate why the milk won't come out. Guess what, the some of the milk become harden and blocking the bottle nipple so the milk won't come out. SF then ask me how I make the milk. Then I answer based on the steps above. Guess what. .....

I MIX UP THE STEPS ..... It should be ...

1. Get 3oz of cooked water - (warm/room temp).
2. Add 1oz of hot water.
3. Add in 4 spoon of milk powder.

Hahaha .. that is my first blunder ... and more to come ...

My little sweetie

My little sweetie begin to learn on how to roll ...

My latest invention ... Bacon Roll

Hi all, my latest invention. Bacon Roll.....

In fact cooking is one of my passion. I like do cooking where I can try out new dishes and also in the same time, I can test my cooking skills. I use to have a housemate (Tze Yong) when we were in Melbourne. He used to say "cooking can help to release tension/pressure". Sometime I find it true as well because I can forget all the misery, problems and suffer in my work and enjoy the cooking session.

The recipe, at the bottom of the page.

Ehh .. where is the end-result photo. Too bad, it is too tasty that SF don't have a chance to take the photo and it is finished. The credit have to go SF for taking the photo. Oh ya, FYI, SF created the 1st version of bacon roll (picture not available). It is tasty in some sense but you know what, I improved her version of bacon roll. I have to give her credit here, she start complaining to me just now cause I didn't give credit to her. Here you go, my beloved wife, I loved you so much..... muackkksss

2 tsp. soy sauce

Attitude in working

Ya, today I wanted to write about ATTITUDE. I'm a software developer. Everyday I need to deal with the software tester and perhaps customer from the field that using our product. I'm glad that each product will be tested by the tester before being launched to the customer. I rather fix the problem found in testing phase than fixing a problem in the field that cause so much of unwanted pressure and "visibility".

The problem is, not all tester are really good. Some of them just make no sense to me in their testing work. These bunch of people, do not study the architecture of the system, understand the flow, the logic and just simply test the system. A lot of the time, the problem that tester found is because of their configuration issue. Arghh come on, how come developer can do their unit testing and setup the environment and why not tester? Most of the time tester have more time to review the requirement and architecture compare to developer. Hence I expect the tester to be more "intelligent" in doing their work.

Today I received a "complain" from the tester complaining that over 300+ items not generated in the output file. Goodness, how the hell on earth this can happened? I went to do a testing on my own and I'm only half way through the 300+ items. You guess what? I'm still half way, but I can FOUND all the items in the output file. Damn ... Why can't those tester be more "intelligent".
I used to be a software tester as well. Whenever I found problem, I will be very careful in investigating the problem to ensure it is indeed a software problem rather than my own configuration issues and wrong way of testing before going to developer to ask them investigating on it. But this kind of mentality not happening in most of the software tester nowadays. Whenever they found problem, they think they are very smart and straight away raise a bug to cause a chaos in the department to close the bug ASAP. I can tell you 75% bugs raised in my current job are not valid. Jesus christ. I began to question the skill of the tester hired. If I were the manager, these bunch of tester will get a boot from me already. Go BACK to UNI to study problem solving skills again lar ........

Shifting house ....

Recently a lot of people searching for clues for shifting house/moving house from google and ended on my blog, I guess those people are looking for ideas/checklist and here you go, I've updated the list of things to keep in mind.

1. List of thing to clean up your new house/apartment. Things like broom, cloth, soap powder, water hose and etc.

2. Ensure basic utilities are ready like electricity and water.

3. You might want to hire professional (more expensive) or semi-pro house mover to help you move your furniture to new house/apartment (if you have existing furniture that you wanted to keep or still brand new).

4. Drink plenty of water because you easily get dehydrated and fall sick.

5. Few extra t-shirt to change cause I ensure you that you gonna sweat a lot.

6. Try to do the house moving in Saturday so that you get a day of rest rather than going to work on the next day.

7. Delegate your work, cause you can never be able to do everything on your own. Get some helps from friends or families.

8. Get ready with cash/cheques cause you will need to settle bills for your new furniture and labour cost.

9. The very important thing, planned the arrival of furniture separately rather in one shot, else you will have headache to monitor all the movement of the workers. You definitely do not want to have your furniture to have scratches.

10. You might want to pre-check with the wheather forecast. You certainly do not want to move house on rainy day. It is too much of mess to deal with.

Wow it have been quite a tiring experience of shifting house. I recently moved in to my new house. Previously, when I was still single, moving house is just like moving room only because all my belongings will only reside within the room. So it is kind like peanut to move around. But now, after having family. The shifting thing is for the whole house. God knows how many things we have in the apartment after staying there for 2 years. We used to rent out a room for our friend. After she moved out, we used the room as a storeroom/garage. Initially, only one of the corner was occupied with our "rubbish". After 2 years, the "rubbish" was stacked as tall as the room's height. It occupied all the 3 corners (except the door corner, else I wouldn't be able to open the room's door). It was like a nightmare when I need to pack all the things up. Luckily SF still on holiday, else I wonder how am I going to finish packing all the "rubbish".

There are some furnitures that are still brand new from my apartment that can be reused (it was only 1 or 2 yrs old). So we decided to temporary reuse it for a while (there are so many other expenses that we need to take care of, so if can thrifty, then be a bit thrifty lor). I rented a truck to help me move the stuff. Wow it cost me a boom. 1 trip of truck = $80, workers charges = $50. It took me 2 trip to move the bigger stuff to my new house. I decided to use my avanza to move the smaller smaller stuff that we have packed in the box. This can help to save money a bit. So a total of $260 just to move the furniture ONLY.

On 29 Sept itself, I split myself into few parts. One part to take care of the furniture moving. One part to take care of the installation of air-conditioner (with the help from ah Ling). One part to supervise my maid in cleaning up the house. One part .. ehhh . forgotten liao .. So it was a very very tiring experience. You must be wondering why I cramped everything in 1 day. I've just changed job to my new company. I have very limited leave till end of the year. I only have 5 days since I joined in mid-July. I have already utilised 1 day for baby and another day for house renovation. So I have no other choice of doing all the thing in one day. SF cannot help to supervise the renovation thing cause our baby Ningx2 scared of the drilling sound. So it is better that SF stay in the apartment with the baby.

0n 30 Sept, we officially moved in to the new house. Mom & dad came over to carry out the traditional chinese ceremony for moving in to the new house. Lots of thing to prepare. Sis did came over as well. According to mom, for the first day in new house, we need to cook a proper meal and have dinner in the house. So mom was busy preparing few dishes at home. Yi Hang, Sis's son, was so naughty that he broke my $250++ bottle of perfumes. Luckily I have already used up 1/4 of it, else sakit hati.

On 1 Oct, more renovation to be done. I've asked the electrician to install water heater in the bathroom and install the astro for us. The water heater part was pretty easy that he just drill the wall and install it. But the astro part was a bit tricky. Apparently according to the electrician, my house contractor does not put the astro line properly. Hence the wiring was a bit hair wire. He helped me to fix it. It was very kind of him in helping me to install the astro although it was raining. Then the disastrous news came, my decoder spoil. Apparently the newer decoder is very sensitive to shock. I might have accidentally shake the astro box while shifting it to the new house. It cost me $165 to fix the decoder. Money again. In the evening, we decided to go to Ikea to grab some deco and stuff for the house. We bought a coffee table, clock, dustbin, toilet accesories and etc. Wow, $$$$$ again .... It is not an easy matter of having a new house. Everything is $$$$$ ..
