Some of you would have known by now that a blogger SCB (Lisa) went into coma since 8th April.
A few of us visited her today in Gleneagles Hospital. She's breathing on her own and her heart rate is normal, but the cause of her collapse is still unknown. She seems to be responding to voices, as when Seng Kor called out to her, she heaved a big sigh (just like yesterday with Jomel's visit).
Linpeh is collecting well wishes and voices of bloggers, and will be compiling them into a CD. We hope it will get played to SCB (Lisa) and will rouse her from her deep sleep. For those of you who are interested, please record your voices, and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please remember her in your prayers.Mamabok is calling bloggers all over the world to say a silent prayer for SCB (Lisa) tomorrow. 19th April 2006 - 1pm (M'sia time); 19th April 2006 - 2am (Canada Time).
On Friday, I stripped her down to her diaper, because she's going to get dirty (which she did), and let her do some painting on the floor so we can mop up the mess later. She was happy, and kept asking for "Per-per" (purple, Barney's colour) paint. Drawing She spotted a box of markers the day before, and when I asked her what she wanted to do on Saturday, she said, "daw daw" (draw draw). I asked her what she's drawing and she said, "Snake, many snake!" Well, they did look like a bunch of very tangled up snakes. Playing with her toys She likes masak-masak (Malay: cooking) the most. She said it was "soop" she was cooking and when I asked what soup, she said, "fis ball". She pretended to blow the soup cold to feed herself and me. After that, she put on her hat, and turned on the music on her electronic keyboard, and started dancing. Then, it was playing with the xylophone. She got tired later, and started whining.

hurricane Zara creates every time she sweeps through plays in the living room.
I baked some chicken pies for lunch on Saturday. (After making the filling, I went to Giant to hunt for Pampas Frozen Pie Crust, and guess what? None available in Giant. No puff pastry, no pie crust, NOTHING, not even local brands. Luckily, spotted a shop selling baking supplies on our way home and managed to get some puff pastry.)
Daddy and Zara both didn't like it. Daddy said he's not a chicken person, esp if they are soaked in gravy but he took 2 anyway. Zara said "Don't want" because she's "Sked" (Scared). *slap head*. Guess who took the most?
On Sunday, I cooked some simple fish porridge, Daddy gobbled up loads, and so did Zara. Both of them are such fish lovers, and sooo Chinese!

I baked about 30, and at the end of it, we have about 6 left for today's breakfast. 9 of us took 24 scones!! But they are pretty small though.As for Zara, since her 1st birthday, she'd never seen so many people in our house before. She had fun, playing with her cousins, going to the park with them, and best of all, getting to see her youngest cousin, baby Tasha (her inspiration to become a baby) again!
In the car, while on our way to home after dinner, I asked her, "Zara happy or not? So many people came to Zara's house to play with Zara?" She said, "Happy! *pointed to her chest* Zara."

Birthday girl in green. Zara in her 'sessy' Aunty Jesslyn's dress.
Dinner with PIL Daddy is the type who needs to see his parents at least fortnightly (or he'll miss them, although he won't admit). He suggested dinner with them on Sunday.
We had dinner in Bibik Chik, SS2. This is one place which we can have Zara sit through the whole meal because there's an inhouse entertainer who plays the guitar and sings some oldies.
Zara's eyes were constantly fixed on the entertainer. Dancing occasionally, swaying her arms, and if it's the end of a nice catchy song, she would be clapping her hands shouting, "Bah-Voh". I think it really made made the entertainer's day having such an ardent fan. In return, he sang Zara the Do-re-mi song which made Zara so happy!Woot! And the highlight of the weekend...... Daddy set up the wireless router in the house. So we have gone wireless!
