Look what I found…

I had the whole week off last week as the tuition centre that I’m presently attached to was having its one-week mid-year break…and I decided to use the time to try and clear up a bit of the mess in the house. I went through the kitchen cabinets, sorting out the stuff, dusting, wiping and cleaning and throwing away the junk…and in the process of doing all that, I found this…

I remember that time when my daughter and I were browsing around the 100% Discount Store in Salim (near Farley) and we stumbled upon this. I don’t know why but she likes green frogs…and anything green when it comes to her clothes, bags and what not. We thought it looked real cute, so we bought it…but I think we only used that once – to make ice lollies.

Then I found my little stainless steel pot…

Giacomo pot set 1

It is just about the size of a mug and would be ideal if you want to boil two eggs…or heat up some leftover that is not of a substantial amount.

I bought it in a set of three – small, medium, large…

Giacomo pot set 2

…at this member-only catalogue shop, Giacomo and as far as I can remember, it was really cheap – maybe around RM15.00 or something like that. I wouldn’t have bought them otherwise.

So that was how I spent my one-week break. Nothing very exciting, eh? Sobs!!!

  1. Froggie! Hahaha. I almost forgot bout them already. Can make more lollies when I come back ;p

    LOL!!! You’re early! Oops! It’s almost 10.00 a.m. there. Ya…you wouldn’t want to make ice lollies there – not at this time of the year…so very cold and rainy. Take care, love…keep warm and dry.

      1. Miss my dad ma… boohooo!

        Hehehehehe!!!! Daddy’s little girl! πŸ˜€

  2. On boiling eggs. Here is a neat trick to boil eggs using nothing but your electric rice cooker and some wet tissue. Put the wet tissue (say….2 or 3 pieces) at the bottom of the rice cooker and place the eggs on top. Cover it and switch on. The water in the tissue will generate enough steam to cook the egg.

    Ah yes! I can’t remember where I’ve seen people doing that. Can give it a try sometime… But which is more expensive, I wonder – electricity or gas? πŸ˜‰

  3. Not sure you feel the same or not but when you are really really busy for days and suddenly having a bit of time not having anything to do or simply being bored to tears can also be a form of enjoyment. Ya, I put it as “attitude”.

    That’s human nature – when you’re really bogged down with work, you long for a break – just relax, doing nothing at all. It was a good break for me though…even though I did not go anywhere. I checked the air fares but they were just too expensive over the Gawai season or the flights were fully booked.

  4. My mum and dad bought a Popsicle maker similar to the one above. But it was Doraemon on it. LOL… I was crazy about Doraemons! (still am!)

    I don’t think my daughter was ever into Doraemon…but Pokemon, yes! And Ninja Turtles!!! LOL!!! πŸ™‚

    1. I like Pokemons too… but Ninja Turtle kinda scares me. Gosh, those green looking mutants!

      And she liked Power Rangers too!!! Gawd! Good thing it was just a phase…and Barbie too – how we spent a fortune on the dolls and the outfits and the accessories! How fast time flew…and now she’s all grown up and on her own…

  5. yo…so cute.. all of them.. the lollies and the stainless steel pots.. what else did u manage to “rummage?” Keep those for your cucu-s next time… was just mentioning my “cucu-s” in kathy’s blog a minute ago.. lol…

    Huh!!! Your kids are still studying and you are already looking forward to having cucu-s!!! Don’t rush them – still young! Hahahahaha!!! πŸ˜€

    1. Claire is not the only one who is looking forward to cucu! I’m been harping about one too. Cuz i dun wan anymore kids, and hope my cucus would avenge me. LOL… I mean, Cucus are God’s gift to us for not killing our kids, after all. LOLOL!

      Aiyor…you are too young for cucu-s!!! I wonder when I’ll have any – not that I’m looking forward to babysitting and what not – just the idea of becoming a dtauk! Can’t be one with a big “D”…so be one with a small “d” lor! LOL!!! πŸ˜€

      1. I’ve* Yea… I certainly am looking forward to the time my anak have some kids of his own. LOLOL… and when the cucu make him mad, I can say, last time he’s worst off, so deal with it. Oh, the joy! Mwhahahahahha~ And you wun catch me babysitting cucu either. Cabut dulu and only have the fun part! Mwhahaha! It would be so nice to have a cucu. Hopefully, in 15 years time, my brat will have a gf or something, and I’ll be just nice in my 40s~ Kakakakakakaka! Ah, syok! *dreaming!*

        Yup…In your dreams indeed! In your dreams! Grandparents love the grandkids and spoil them rotten…so much so that the children will wonder – were those MY parents, the ones we grew up with? How they let the grandkids get away with everything! LOL!!! πŸ˜€

  6. Oo. It sounds like a treasure hunt. So cute, I like green too.

    It certainly looked like it – and I gave some of the “treasures” to my friends’ kids. You like green too? You’re not the Naomi who was my daughter’s classmate, are you? Btw, thanks for dropping by – will add you to my blogroll. Do come again… πŸ˜‰

  7. Hahaha πŸ˜€ SO cute. Those are used to make ice cubes and ice creams right? :p

    Yup! Ice lollies…or popsicles. But can only make four…not for people with too many children. LOL!!! πŸ˜€

  8. I think the only green things that I owned was a set of Ninja Turtles plate, bowl and cup. LOL~!

    Melissa has a lot of green stuff – t-shirts, laptop backpack…and lots of frogs. LOL!!! πŸ˜€

  9. So, i saw Melissa Wee the first commentor here, and she must be thankful to you for rediscovering the greeen froggies and bet when she is back, you will have to make ice lollies for her….. so Cikgu, spring cleaning so fast? did you manage to find any hidden notes ( i mean dollar notes,, coin) or not?

    Hahahaha!!! And I thought I could hold some competition and offer that as a prize!!! LOL!!! Looks like I’ve to keep it till she comes back. Ya…lots of notes – in all the rusty Milo tins…Japanese banana money, also got! Hahahahaha!!!!

  11. The green frogs is ‘keroppi’! My oldest gal loved them too n used to buy their lunchboxes,waterbtls,stationeries…I remembered once we went back for summer hols in Sibu n u gave her a pair of top n cullotes with this frog designs as a present and she liked them so much she wore them all summer long….how time flies! :(! :)!

    I guess she has outgrown her love for green froggies and are interested in other things now? Wink! Wink! Hahahahahaha!!!

  12. AH! That froggie ice lollies look cute!!! I like green color too! *hinting* LOL!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hahahaha!!! Let’s wait till you come to Sibu again…and hopefully, when the time comes, let’s hope I will remember where I’ve stacked it. This old man – memory loss liao…cannot remember a lot of things. LOL!!! πŸ˜€

  13. Interesting finds STP. You make me think of full cleaning my home to see what could I find.

    You’ll never know – some long forgotten treasures in some dark corners. May even find some money!!! @@ Hehehehe!!!!

  14. The pot so cheap! dont think can get so cheap here

    These things at the Giacomo catalogue shop are very pretty and very cheap. I bought a nice claypot for only RM10.00 but I broke it… 😦

    1. RM10 only? Pengsan. so cheap. too bad here dont have. Else will go there to get a teapot for Cleff. Hers pecah 😦

      Goodness!!! Now how did she break her teapot? Should get a metal stainless steel one…never mind dent here and there! LOL!!! I haven’t been to the place for a long time. Maybe should drop by and see what they have these days.

  15. Owww..i love the green froggies and even my gals also love them.

    I think when i was small, i had one froggy pillow…aka bantal busuk!

    My daughter has a green froggie bolster too – a friend gave to her in Sg Petani. For some reason, her mum did not want her to bring but seeing that she wanted it so much, I squeezed it into one of her bags. Guess she’s happily hugging it to sleep every night it Wellington. πŸ™‚

  16. that is a cute froggies to impress the kids

    Hahahaha!!! Small kids and big ones too. When I bought those, my daughter was quite big already – just had to buy for her as she loved green froggies so much!!! Anything to make her happy! LOL!!! πŸ˜€

  17. Nice froggy ice lolly maker. Now can make froggy eggs ice lollies from biji selasih…ha ha ha!

    Hah! The very creative master chef! I guess using dragon fruit, the white variety will also give the same effect? πŸ˜‰

  18. Eh those pots are really cute!! Perfect to cook mee als.. Slurp!

    What’s mee “als”? I cooked mee this morning – Foochow style…but that will me in another post. πŸ™‚

  19. The pot just nice for cooking instant noodle. :p

    Ya…I use them a lot. Real value for money…and they’ve been with me for so many years, just that we seldom use the smallest one, so my missus stacked it somewhere at the back in the cabinets – out of sight.

  20. hey, cleanin up the junk is very exciting holiday you know…. not! Hahaha!

    At least you found something good. All I found in my storage place is dead animals. I don’t really know how it got there…

    Gosh!!! Doctor, you live in such unhygienic conditions? Time to call pest control…but do make sure they don’t throw you out! Hahahahahaha!!!! Soory, can’t help poking a little fun at you.

  21. FROG to us is Fully Rely On God! Hope those little frog(s) remind you also to always fully rely on God too. I have a little story of FROG in my blog.

    Here it is – http://yantouch.wordpress.com/2005/11/10/frog/

    I wouldn’t abide by that. “God helps those who help themselves.” We need to do all we can to get what we want but “God works in mysterious ways”…so “…let Thy will, and not my own, be done…”

    P.S.: Very nice story though…

  22. LOL! Very cute miniature stainless steel pots, I would give it to Juan Juan to play with her ‘masak-masak’ set!^-^

    Hehe… I thought you don’t like popsicles? For our kids’ sake, sometimes we really have to give in to their craving right?!;)

    Have a nice day ahead!

    Aiyor…RM15 for masak-masak! But then again, parents these days spend a lot more on toys for their kids – like those Barbie dolls – will need a few K! I don’t like popsicles, neither does my daughter – she just loves the frogs – that’s why we bought the mould. LOL!!! πŸ˜‰

  23. so cute the froggies!!! and u know wat’s cuter? ur communication with ur daughter.. via this blog.. sigh..

    my dad dun blog.. so we sms πŸ˜› i call him too lah.. but then… if he blogs will be so ROCK! πŸ˜€

    We chat on Skype every day. I keep telling her not to drop by my blog as she would be drooling over the food and missing home but she would do just that and when on Skype, she would grumble away at all the nice things I have eaten. She never/seldom commented though…only this time, because of the frogs! πŸ™‚

  24. You should have made some lollies and show us!

    Then I will have to throw away the ice lollies… Not into those things. But maybe I might make some red bean ice cream potong one of these days when I’m free. I don’t mind those…

  25. i like this so much and it is very cute. so CUUTTEEE!

    My daughter still wants it…so, sorry…you’re not having it! Hahahahaha!!!! πŸ˜€
