My Robot Vacuum Cleaner

Confession.

I am a tad stingy person, hence will not spend a big sum of money on gadgets and stuff, but I do admit I have always been intrigued with this robot vacuum gadget. Yes, the price is quite shocking to my wallet.

I'm sure my dear hubby wouldn't mind buying one for me but again, the stingy (or we Chinese called it 'kiam-siap') part of me just can't stomach the thought of spending so much money on gadgets like this.

I do sweep, clean and mop our floor everyday. But with 5 children at home most of the time, churning out eraser shavings from their homework, cutting papers for their crafts and producing dirt everywhere, it is impossible to keep the floors spic and span clean 100% of the time, you know!

Anyway, I do buy a lot of stuff online. I believe that I'm a sensible online shopper who knows how to compare prices and checking available and credible customers' reviews first before buying anything.

So when I saw this little gadget on sale, I thought 'Why not? I think I deserve a little Mothers' Day treat' so I ordered it! Without letting my hubby know of course LOL

There's 2 colours available, naturally I chose the black one as it looks more sleek compared to the white one. Also partly because white will be easier to notice if it is dirty or scratched.

What I like about this gadget is, of course, the PRICE. It makes my wallet less whiny at RM32.40 (less than USD7.50). I also like the fact that it can be charged using USB cable.

One thing that I must tolerate is the noise from this little gadget. Quite noisy but I guess it is better than my wallet whining sound hehehe... Anyway, according to the product description, you charge this gadget for 40 minutes and it will run around sucking up dirts and stuff for 40 minutes. 

My hubby had a good laugh the first time he saw my robot vacuum cleaner! Darn it! He thought I bought a gigantic robot vacuum cleaner that he normally sees other people having. I told him, repeated to him that I bought a cheap-a** gadget of course it will not be a gigantic size gadget!

So anyway, I just turn on the vacuum cleaner while my children have their tea-time break. This way, EVERYONE is out of the area where this gadget works and won't end up tramping on it and I just occasionally retrieve it to remove the dirt it has gathered.

It has so far faithfully sucked up paper pieces, hair, dust, eraser shavings, even garlic peels! Our 3-year-old boy helped me to peel garlic every now and then and leaves garlic skins on the floor unknowingly.

 So very easy to operate this gadget and no need to worry about getting batteries yada yada.

At such a price, I really have no regrets so far!

Choose Your Own Adventure Books

I like to get books for my kiddos. If the topics are too advanced, I will read it to them during bedtime otherwise whenever I noticed any particular interests from them in any topics, I will try to get the books to further ignite their fire. My personal opinion is to ignite my kiddos' reading passion, we have to make books available to them easily. And I honestly think my strategy works for our kiddos!

Anyway, I was telling our kiddos months ago that I used to read this type of books during my early teenage years, whereby after we read a certain page, there are options available at the bottom for the reader to choose to do this or that. If you choose this option, you will be directed to a page to continue on from the option you make, so on and so forth until you reach the end of the story from your many decisions made along the way.

I told my kiddos it was so intriguing that while reading a book, we can also play a part in it by making our own decision, choosing our own paths and then see how our decisions affects the direction of the stories. They were curious and seem excited there is such books available. Little did they realised that mummy also want them to be able to apply these techniques in their real life too. To choose wisely, and cause-effect-consequences.

So I set out to search and scour the website for such books and found them! Now since I'm in Malaysia, the options are quite limited to order online. Amazon doesn't cater shipping to Malaysia for quite a lot of books so I always go to my reliable backup option which is The Book Depository.

After much research and price comparing of the many books titles available, I settled for the "Choose Your Own Adventure Books 1-6: Box Set". I felt it was the most value for money and has the interesting titles which I think will be suitable for my kiddos.

These books just arrived after over 1 month of waiting (I’m in Malaysia). Ordered on 30th July 2019, books were dispatched from UK on 2nd August 2019 and finally arrived on 21st Sept 2019.

Kiddos are so excited and looking forward to bedtime to hear the story!! I'm excited too! Yayyyy!!!

Below are some of the books I got for my kiddos so far... you can see the theme/genre goes from classic comics to educational magazines, and then to illustrated chapter books and comics with more words and in other languages (local comics by Lat)

Hacker(s) have been removed from my FB page and I have removed all the videos that they posted on the page. Total cleansing is needed.

I would like to thank all my fans, friends and family members who rally up to report every single posts published by the hacker on my page.

Thank you all, words cannot describe the triumphant feeling I have to get back my digital baby, This baby who has grown together with my 5 kiddos, where I shared experience and articles I find interesting, jokes and so on.
