Rants, Really Rayray

#ReallyRayRay

Ok fine. I’ve officially stepped out of my comfort zone and get Ray Ray to try out the media pathway and this is my daughter’s channel. I did this because I want them to know that for the things that they want, they need to fight for it if it’s worthy and things are always not as easy as they think it is.

Part of growing up I guess. Please support! 🙂

Some fun facts:

  1. My siblings helped to vote her a yes to go-ahead and approved on her venture into the media space.
  2. The initial name was Really Real Rayshirl given by my sister-in-law but in the end, I decide to remove the Real and part of Rayshirl real name (some part of me still want to try my best to embrace privacy). So I use her nickname “Rayray” instead.
  3. Even my close friends voted a “Yes” for her to explore the pathway because all of them felt the need to let them go through this process.

And why did I oppose to it (initially):

  1. I realised the unseen dangers of the Cyberworld. It could be Cyberbully or some dangerous Paedo lurking around.
  2. I embraced privacy especially the girls.
  3. If Cyberbullying happened, I’m not sure with the age and stage of mental capability, can the girls handle the stress and etc.

Circuit Breaker Day 09 to 12

15 to 18 April 2020.

As much as I wanted to blog about my #CB days but I realised how I embrace my privacy to a certain degree. Thus will not be posting much about the kids’ picture so that they will not be harmed by anyone be it with intention or without. 🙂


Life as a SAWM (Stay Home Working Mum) is getting busier as the day past.

On the business side, something had kept me going and that’s this.

I can do it and I will.

Circuit Breaker Day 07 aka #cbday07

1 week down. Another 23 days to go.

Home-based learning getting smoother now. I’m getting used to the momentum and enjoying this life. I wonder how’s life gonna be after 4th May 2020?

Sometimes I wonder how will the marginalized one deal with this? The homeless where they’ve no-where to go, the single parents how do they cope? How did the teacher feel about teaching and handling their own kids at the same time?

Many thoughts came by during this period of time.

And something that I think we should embrace,  is being kind and kinder during this period.

Jiayou Singaporeans and Residing Residents~ we can do it.

Circuit Breaker Day 05 aka #cbday05

11 April 2020 – Saturday.

Day 05. I decided to give myself a break today. Decide to declutter and learn something, a new language, ok maybe, brush up my bahasa melayu with the girls.

So we kind of Youtube-learn it. FOC ok although a few of my friends recommending Duolingo and all. I guess the rest of the next few weeks, I can see how it goes.

Did another stuff on the #CircuitBreaker Bucket List (which I will add to the sider soon) – Bake Banana Muffin LOL.

Matcha
Muffin Faceeee.

Somehow, the girls and the furkids are the happiest this month due to this #CircuitBreaker stuff. Not bad.

Today post will be a little tad short as I’m too shocked to say anything else due to a sudden news of a close kin’s passing (non COVID-19 case).

Till date, take care.

Circuit Breaker Day 04 aka #cbday04

10 April 2020 – I felt that after these 28 days, I would have graduated as the Master Chef or maybe a Student Care Teacher. Things made easier when today’s a PH and there’s NO HBL sessions. *relief*

Menu of the Day: Steamed Mushroom & Fried Egg with Porridge.

Day 04 Lunch

Pre-prepared Ingredients for the Noodles Soup @ Night

Malaysia just announced their extension for the MCO till 28 April 2020 and seriously I hope Singapore will not follow the footsteps to extend this #CircuitBreaker thing. PM Lee had released another video on asking everyone to strongly follow the Circuit Breaker measures.

This includes that footfall should be controlled and all. Sometimes I wonder when will this ends and I begin to wonder;

What will happen to the homeless?

The underprivileged and all? To be honest, they are the ones who will suffer the most during this pandemic period. It’s in all passing phase. This sent me thinking hard on how I can finetune all these and make myself a better person.

Despite that I would need to be mentally strong to fight off what comes may especially toxic people. The first Easter that going online instead of offline gathering.

Bless everyone.

Circuit Breaker Day 03 aka #CBDay03

09 April 2020. Day 03 of the #CircuitBreaker

The girls (except Rayshirl and Yahyah) woke up earlier to finish up their assignments. #RayshirlTheJoker decides to OTOT finish up her stuff because there is no Google Meets for her this week.

Enhanced measures are called in and everyone is staying home for Easter. Amen.

Cooked a Veggie Stew and Lemongrass x Pandan to detox. I absolutely love the stew-life because it last me through the whole day.

Menu of the Day: Vegetables Stew & Lemongrass x Pandan.

The day flew past with hustling with the kids and all.

Fake Tea Party

Rayshirl Makeup
Rayshirl does her makeup better than me.
Mom's Life

Snacking with Mummy
Snacking Peas before Bedtime. LOL Supper eh.

Anyway these few days opened up my sights a little, getting to know the learning style of the girls and many more to come. I never thought I would have this opportunity to stay home with them and be a SAHM. HAHA.

I guessed this COVID-19 made this chapter significant about the girls, about the break, about what I want in life. Many mentioned that couples would have more friction than anything else. This period made me realised what I need in future.

Sometimes, some stuff can’t be bought with money. 🙂

Circuit Breaker Day 02 aka #CBDay02

THE CHALLENGE IS HERE ON 08 APRIL.

I woke up at 8.00am and prepared the girls for the HBL and guess what, there was a fair bit of cock-ups. Almost going insane and reminded me that it’s only Day 01 of HBL, and there would be more to go. In order to keep my sanity in check, decide to focus on mini-me and cooked brunch.

Menu of the Day: Marconi in “Fake Cabonara” soup with Instant Mushroom Soup & Cheesesticks. HAHA.

cbday0204
Snacking Time. O_O

Afternoon was a killer because the girls gave themselves a break way much earlier and they off school at “12pm” instead of the usual one. And this girl did not finish her work and went to make her chocolate milkshake. HELLO jiejie, at school can like that go canteen buy food as and when you like meh?

cbday0205
Side eye me when I want to snap a picture of evidence to complain to the whole. LOL

Bonding session begins with brunch and all. The girls decide to tell on to their teachers that they had to look after the babysister thus cannot be “online” while I worked. Legit reason but hello O_O.

And I had change one corner of the house to a chillax corner. HAHA, the girls will nap and etc. Example of the chillax that they can have their own screentime there.

Dinner was way much simpler with the “anyhow cook” theme.

Menu of the Day: Cooked a vegetable stew with bai cai, mocked prawns, watercress and tomato. Makan with rice.

Night time was a thought process that this reminded me it’s only Day 01 of HBL. Not sure if it’s a psychological effect but I’m still glad that I have these 28 days bonding with the kids. HAHAHA. Keeping sanity in check.

cbday0210
Decide to chiong her work before 2359 hours.


Okay – sleep, it, snack and repeat.

Amazingly, I had made big plans for these 28 days and just to share on a few things I want to achieve during this period;

  • UXUI for PB done
  • Settle my app development
  • Learn a new language as a family
  • Take my online coding class
  • Purchase my vehicle

And pushing my limits with everything else including social works such as Kampung North.
