"Rojak" story..

I know...i know..I have been posting quite many depressing post since early this year..So terrible kan..we are only in second week of 2009, and i was ranting like 'saiko auntie' already. On the first day of new year itself, my crowning was broken and i only can fixed it 100% either tomorrow or the day after tomorrow..then..i got my molar extracted about 10 days ago and my gums was badly infected...then...my box full of 'precious foods' which flew all the way from sabah went missing...and bikin meradang is...it still MISSING until now. Kurang asam betul..my sis called A.Asia again yesterday to enquire about the missing box..and this time, the staff said, they need another 14days to find the box. Nah!! Stupid or not..they better just tell my sis, the box was missing and there is no way they can find it..!! Kan senang!!!!! Even if they can find the box after 14days, i don't think all the foods inside are still edible..!!!! But no worry..I sure will make a big fuss about this matter...do you think i should make a police report about the missing box????? HAHAHAA!!
Ok! Ok..I better talk about other things kan..hehehe!!!! Soooooo...Chinese New Year is less than 2 weeks from now...hehe For your information..I'm not chinese but i do celebrate CNY as i married to one..! This year, we are going to celebrate CNY moderately. Paham-paham lah..economy is not really good kan..! Me and hubby still haven't go for CNY shopping just yet..but last week, i brought hubby to the Pasar Malam near from our office to look for clothes for our kids. To our surprise, Pasar Malam clothes sold are very fashionable and look nice too..! I bought 2 dresses for my daughter and it's only cost me RM15 for that....punyaaaaa cantik the dress..!!! I think it look sooooo much better than the expensive one. It's really worth you know..then, we bought 1 jeans and 1 Ben 10 pants for son..and yep! Its cheap too..the two items only cost about RM46..! YAY!!
If you think me and hubby are a cheapskates parents, maybe we are..but do you know kids clothing are sooooooooooooo much...much..much.. more expensive than our clothes??? Yeah!! Last year, me and hubby spent more than RM400 for Isaac and Inesha's new CNY clothes..and that not even included other stuff yet..! I remember hubby really fancied one Denim jacket for son, and without thinking twice, he bought that RM149 jacket for son...RM149??????? Gila kan!!!!!!! But thats not the worst..when son was 1 year old, hubby bought him the Chinese Traditional Costume that cost RM180!!! Nah!! Lagi gila babas!!!! It was only worn twice..and never again after CNY 2005..!!

This beautiful 'Sam Foo' is really beautiful..daughter wore it only once..and now, cannot wear already..!! Sayang kan..

So this year..I told hubby, we better buy few cheaper but nice look clothes for our kids at pasar malam and maybe get them 1 pair the expensive a bit each but won't cause a big hole in our pocket. Imagine lah..my daughter Baby Kiko jeans pun cost about RM49..!!!!! Aiyooooooo..even my jeans i bought from ebay only cost me RM29 saja!!!! so yeah..!! Biar lah cheapskates this year..!!! Better save the money for something more important kan..!!! Maybe for their education fund and other important stuffs...

So like that lah..I, myself haven't buy anything for myself yet..but i think i'm not going to get a new clothes for this CNY..! I need to save more money this year..! Ya lah..I have to pay my study fees already mah!!! Hehee..So what about you guys?? Anything special done to celebrate CNY????

It's certainly not easy being parents. And I disagree, it's not being cheapskates, it's about being thrifty. Having said that, the tendency to splurge once in a while is inevitable, parents love. :-)

Adora said...

Skali sekala beli yg mahal tida apa bah, bukan utk urg lain, anak sendiri pnya. Tp mmg sayang la tu baju2 suma kalu tida kena pakai suda. Heheheee kasi donate la..

Nah bukan cheapskate baitu, berbelanja dgn bijak. Better save the money, mntau tiba2 ada urgent matter yg perlu duit kan..

maslight said...

LOL kadusmama, tu urang di airport makan sudah tu fewd in the box XD LOL. anyways ooooo so cute ur daughter's clothes, what? 1 year pakai sudah inda bulih pakai sudah? @_@

sheelasheena said...

laporan polis?? buli juga tapi tidak la effective sangat i think. Written complain mama that's important. To, 1.Persatuan Pengguna (consumer right)
2.News paper
3.Tony Fernandes email Or Air asia email.

hebat ni..tell us about it! suka pula bila airasia kena bomb.

anyway..i dont celebrate CNY. so no new cloths. Yeah i agreed save for educations. Tiapa bukan nya budak2 tau apa tu "brand" (diorang tau ka tu ah??) but as long as like u said cheap and worth it why not.

9 days leave for me that special but i dont know what to do for the 9 days?...

hahaha...Kalau boleh Ban ang pau pun bagus..kurang belanja kan..
hahaha

Mama Mia said...

Hmmm..bulum lg cari baju CNY utk sumandak sia ni. Plan mo kasi bili dia traditional costume yg affordable pny.

Mmg o kan, baju budak lg mahal dr org besar pny. Once in a while bili yg mahal nda salah tp kalu selalu jatuh bankrap the parents. :)
