It is fun being anonymous on the blogsphere. But sometimes we meet some nice people on the blogsphere and when they become great friends, we do wonder about the person behind the blogs.

I met up with one of my blogging buddies Nessa (FINALLY!). Her hubby tagged along too. Nessa is the only person i've ever seen from my blogging circle in real life. We've been planning to meet for the longest time but time is somehow never on our hands until last Saturday.

this is how Nessa looks like :) Isn't she pretty :)

I couldn't sleep the whole entire night because Piper was snoring the whole time beside me and i was woozy the next morning. I didn't have anything presentable to wear as i am always in pajamas, shorts and jeans. Dom & Piper was supposed to sew me a dress but they slept off even before they started sewing. Dom said i could wear his orange workman tee but it was seriously too revealing and small + bright for starters. *LOL* But seriously, even if they did sew me a dress, i won't look good in dresses. I'll probably step on the hem and trip over or something.

Nessa.... she's one of the first few people who commented on my blog when i first started blogging. She so sweet and soft spoken in real life. I am so glad we finally met up. It was like i've known her my entire life.

We write and read so much about each other's lives on blogs that even though we don't meet, we know each other so much. We share lives through our words and i am always glad to have this blogging circle of friends. You all are awesome. Hopefully and maybe one day i'll get to meet some more of you. Especially Kristin, lil Pip's mom.

Thank you Nessa for all the gifts... especially the big cow mug that you got me. *LOL* It just suits this cow completely. I love it. Please thank your hubby for the latte :)

We are finally home to Ipoh after 25 days in Kuala Lumpur. Both Dom and i have moved to Boy's room to sleep as the aircon is cooler there. The room is darker and its a very comfortable smaller room. It is also newly painted :) Boy painted it with dad few months ago. Boy gave us permission to move into his room as he will hardly get to come back to Ipoh now with his very packed lectures and schedules.

My dad had a hero's welcome when he went for his morning taichi lessons at the park. His taichi buddies all have missed him a lot. 3 weeks away is a very long time for older folks. Even though it gets a bit lonely in the day and night, he will enjoy his early morning walks and exercises with his friends. He will be occupied and he will be alright. He only misses Boy, his favourite grandson. Now he's back to asking me loads of questions the whole day. You will hear me go.. ya... urmm.. yes.. aha.. rightttttttttt... if you live next door.

My sister's biopsy from the operation came back all good. Thank you all for your prayers. She is all okay and will be on the road to recovery. She will just have to get up and get going again slowly. Recovery is all about you. How fast and how slow all depends on you and you alone. She can take her time slowly and recover at her own pace.

For a woman who has had her womb removed, especially a woman who has given birth before, they will feel a sense of emptiness. I remember mom feeling the same way. It will take some time for the hormones to go back to normal and for things to fall back into place. But i am sure she will be fine. Slowly and surely, she will get back to the run of things and start nagging at her hubby and kids. *LOL* They DID have a peaceful three weeks when sis was with me. But i am sure they are glad that she is back to run the household again.

I did get to meet more people this time round. We will play catch up and tell you more on our next post :) And... urmmm... we have a new schnauzer in the house. Wanna see him? Come back tomorrow :)

Glad i finally met you Ness :) It was fun to just chatter away with you while trying to bore your hubby to bits *LOL*

u can wear these jeans shirt pants too and i think you'll look nice in them. Who says you have thunder thighs.. you dont't :) You look fabulous with the long hair.

Moms are always strong people. They always hold the family together. They are the anchor. My sis is too :) Just gonna need time to heal. But i am sure she'll be nagging her kids in no time :p

Did you just say schnauzer at the very last sentence? What a great cliffhanger!! I was gonna come back tommorow anyway, but now I really want to see this schnauzer business!!
I'm happy to hear about your sister doing good. My mom was only in her late thirties when she had her hysterectomy. She recovered right away and it was good they got everything because she is still with me today.
oh, and that is so sweet you were able to meet your blogger buddy, that sounds like so much fun!!

Ann said...

How fun getting to meet a blog pal. I've never met anyone that reads my blog. Maybe someday. It sounds like you and Nessa had a good time.
So glad to hear your sister is doing well

sprinkles said...

That's so cool you got to meet a blogging buddy! I haven't met any of mine yet.

I used to have pen pals and met some of them. Most of them I really liked. I only really had one bad experience and I think it was just more of our personalities were so different.

I'm glad your sister's surgery went well. Surgery is never fun to recover fun, no matter how major or minor.
