3BT: Random Days

1. New workers are coming soon to help us at work. We've been understaffed for a while now, so it's about time that they come before everything becomes chaotic.

2. Fresh bed sheets and clean floor.

3. Patient customers who tell me not to hurry when I half-run to serve them. BLESS THEM!

4. BAPAO!!! (AKA sweet bread dumplings) I found frozen bapao in a supermarket here and I'm going to buy more to stock them in the freezer. YEEEAAAHHH!!! ;-D

5. Becoming hubby's shadow. I have this habit of holding him from the back and following him around every now and then (usually after he takes his nap), making it hard for him to move around freely when he tries to make himself some coffee HUE HE HE HE HE HE...

6. Reading these words in this beautiful post:

Laura Bush, in her recent book, writes:
The English language lacks the words to mourn an absence. For the loss of a parent, grandparent, spouse, child or friend, we have all manner of words and phrases, some helpful some not...

But for an absence, for someone who was never there at all, we are wordless to capture that particular emptiness. For those who deeply want children and are denied them, those missing babies hover like silent ephemeral shadows over their lives.

Who can describe the feel of a tiny hand that is never held?
7. Talking to my Mom on Skype and listening about Ken's antics.

8. Chit-chatting with a few customers - one of them made me laugh so much with his jokes. :-D

9. Having a hubby who is very gentle, soft spoken, patient, and he makes me laugh so much.

10. My friend invited me to join a Finnish learning group in FB so I can ask anything I want to a proper teacher for free and I just joined it. YEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSS!!! ;-D

11. Having true friends that I can trust, that never betrayed me, that I can count on.


  1. Yayyy for all points! :D

  3. @Henny: Itu yang di FB tuh grupnya dari Uni Oulu yang ngadain long-distance Finnish learning buat seluruh dunia malah, trus mereka buka group di FB dan temen gua kasih linknya ke gua, jadi gua baru join. Gua ga tau soal Swedish mah euy, tapi kalo ada info tentang itu gua kasih tau loe pasti, OK? :-D

    @Shinta: HA HA HA HA HA...abis seru sihhhh...tapi jangan lupa itu dipeluknya harus agak kenceng dan rapet (kalo loose kaya anak kecil maen kereta2 apian sih ga seru) HUE HE HE HE HE HE HE...

  4. owh..ok2. ntar gw iseng2 nyari deh. :D kali2 aza nemu. :P

  5. I love these posts. So much to be thankful for and so good to take a step back from our busy lives and appreciate everything we have.

  6. I hope the new workers are helpful and do well to relieve some of the business at work. I would be grateful for understanding customers also. It must be nice to hear them reassure you.

  7. Fresh bed sheets... love the smell. :-) Great list as always. :-)
