I need retail theraphy very badly to cheer myself up and today we went again to Belks and I bought Liz Claireborn bags again and I make sure my nieces and sisters will get 1 each ... so Huda what you waiting for let me know which one you want...haha
Kate Spade bags very expensive even wak tak berani beli .... coach also no sales ...

So these are all I can afford since I have to buy for zillion people back home.....

These are for Jellanie clans again from the baby to the mother ..... together with previous entry.

The Liz handbag and wallet for myself yet again ... 40% less ... murah2 je
Then after Belks we went to Wal-mart purpose was I wanted to buy yarn .. when I found the yarn no knitting needles pulak so cancel but when I went to the carft section I found materials instead and bougth 3 pieces of materials ......

This 2 pcs are quilted just love the designs .... ummi Inak upah you jahitkan bag bolih tak?I know you have loads to do I can wait.

Then I saw this remnants material so pretty and bought it only $2.20 .... simpan je lah.
No more shopping this few days as this afternoon whilst at walmart I felt oozy the same kind when I black out last time quickly look for drink as I am probably dehydrated and also dompet dah kempes......I felt better after resting and even managed to fry bihun for our dinner.

As requested by ummi365 now presenting the palace I am staying at ...hehe.... my sis has a very lovely house .. but if u ask me to stay here maybe I will miss Singapore.Too quiet and the houses far apart eventhough it has a panoramic view being on a hill ... so let the slide do the talking.

The stuff in the house are indeed a collective items:) just imagine yourself where the places are and which room it belongs to ok ummi.

Will at lunch ... comot kan?
After lunch we went to San Antonio and window shopping:)percaya tak?

Dinner at Rudi's BBQ .....

Cikmilah saya beli bag ni tadi from Macy's bag murah je tak mampu nak beli online .... hehehe...kalau ada luggage kosong ingat nak belikan cikmilah sebiji jugak:)

Its a cold day and night temp dropping very low and thunder expected early morning.


Semalam kami jalan jalan ke Fredricksburg perjalan dlm 45 minute dan di sini lah tempat pelancung2 datang untuk membeli segala souvenir untuk bawa pulang tapi saya tak beli apa2 pun agak mahal harga nya ... satu fridge magnet harga nya US$4.99 ... tapi sempat singgah di kedai menjual barangan dapur adoi sungguh tergoda dgn equipments untuk membuat cake etc ....

Yeen if you are reading this the petal dust is more expensive here than Sg eventhough its imported from here.

Kami makan di cowboy joint 'Hondo' sambil mendengar dendangan lagu2 country and western live ....

Pemandangan di Main Street .... sejuk smlm ... angin yang dingin.

Di Hondo Will terpegun mendengar lagu cowboy...........

Tu dia penyanyi nya tapi bukan Kenny Rogers ye...hehe...suara dia sungguh merdu.

Bila kami pulang Mr Doe sedang menunggu sedang mencari makan ...dgn pelahan2 saya dapat tangkap gambar ini ... kedengaran mereka sungguh cepat ... selalu nya kita yg takut ngan dia tapi bagi Rusa mereka takut ngan kita bila nampak atau dengar akan terus lari.Gambar di belakang rumah di mana terletak the garage.

Pagi ni hari minggu saya buat lempeng pisang nak tau berapa Will makan 4 keping!!saya buat macam pancake size ... nampak nya selera dia sama papa dia yg juga sungguh suka ngan lempeng pisang.
Kalau takde apa halangan kami akan drive ke San Antonio untuk berjumpa Kristina and Robert,mereka tinggal di sini dlm 1 jam driving.
Malam semalam ribut petir tapi saya tak dengar lansung mungkin kalau dengar pun tak tau yg itu hujan ribut ... dan temp 0 degree brrrrrrrrrrrr
Hari ni di jangka ada hujan mlm so aunty nurse akan nenyak tido lagi...hehe
Selama di sini dapat juga berYM dengan cikmilah,kaklady dan ummi365 tapi masa kami berbeza bila saya siang mereka mlm pulak ... so kira lucky kan dapat tangkap saya...hehe .... mesti banyak yg rindu mcm ummi365 - hilang rindu kan?

It was a very tiring flight just imagine 10 hrs to get to Moscow and I managed to sleep on and off for at least 3-4 hrs.Met a Malaysia young man on same flight and he was sitting across the isle next to me.He is working for Petronas as an engineer and on learning posting for 6 months...he is a very nice young man who take care of me when we arrive in Houston ye lah tolong angkat my luggage yg berat from the belt.... and when in Moscow also make sure I am safe too.
