Farewell 2008 ... Hello 2009!

Today is already the last day of 2008. Another brand year is just a day away :) What have you achieved and what are you going to achieve in the new year?
I have not achieved much this year yet nothing to regret about. I am thankful to have a loving and understanding husband and of course, a sensible daughter with me.
I have learnt that there are many things that I have to "survived" by myself, no more depending on people and must be more independent :) Learnt that I need to travel more .. hahahaha .. since I am getting older. Learnt that I have to be more gentle with Misha since she is growing and learnt that I have many many more things to learn :)
So, let's welcome 2009 with open arms and hopefully this brand new year will be a better year for everyone :)

Bento #31 @ 031108

3 November 2008

Today is Monday. Monday is one of the busiest day for Misha. Usually, she will have one hour lunch break but since last 2 months, her lunch break is only have 1/2 hour lunch break everyday since she has to attend challenge programmes for the following 1/2 hour. Since it is only 1/2 hour lunch, I tend to give her less food and something simplier .. so that she can eat fast and less messy :)

Today I have prepared rice together with some fried minced pork, sambal ikan bilis and some pan fried lean pork :)

That's all for the day :)
