My very first blog post on 23rd October, 2004 which is exactly two years ago. Come to think of it, I already started on a very controversial note even with my first post. But you know what? After two years, things get even weirder and bloggers get meaner. I like!

Bloggers are weirdos
I thought bloggers are weirdos who talk to themselves â€˜coz they have no human friends to talk to and they are attention seekers. But heck, I lurve blogs and stalk blogs so might as well join the bunch of weirdos.
What am I going to blab in my blog? 5xmom = is mom, mom, mom, mom and mom. Which means I am best in blabbing about my role as a 5 times mom. To me – parenting just need one ingredient – LOVE. Anything else is â€˜kiasuâ€™ and â€˜kiasiâ€™ driven. Oh noâ€¦. I do not subscribe to the two things. Or rather, I am trying hard to stay away from it in bringing up my children.
(kiasu = afraid of losing, kiasi = afraid of dying but actually also means afraid of losing)
Along the way, I had been guided well by some veteran bloggers. The number one person to thank is my sifu, of course. I am not sure how I stumbled on his blog but back then, it is THE ONLY BLOG to read. The others are just copycats. Thank you, sifu. I wish you will put back all your old posts.
There are other bloggers that I learned from. But I shall not mention names or else people will say I build cronies. 😛 But my siheng (we same mahaguru mah) was my prime enemy when we started blogging. Thanks siheng!
The fun of blogging starts when flamewars got blown out of proportion. It was super shiok to see people slinging mud at each other. I got some myself but those are what turn bloggers into real tough cookies. If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. That’s one good advice I got from AmericanMuslim. (heh, I lost his URL though)
KSTang, a Penang blogger and the most non-controversial blogger once told me, “If we are going for any blogmeet, please don’t sit near me because I don’t want flying daggers meant for you to kill me.” Heh, I hope that no longer applies because I am trying to be a non-controversial blogger too. Boh lam pah is better than boh mia, hor?
I didn’t know the reach of my blog until last Thursday morning. I set up a blog for my eldest son and without reading the fine prints, I changed it to beta blogger on blogspot. He was supposed to get his friends to continue with the site (meant for scouts). Early morning at 9 am, his friend called me because they can’t log in with the password I gave them. Turned out that when I changed to Beta Blogger, I have to use my gmail password. Duh. So, I had to change my pw temporary so that they can do something. When I read out ‘the5xmom at gmail dot com’, this young man on the other end of the phone went, “Huh, you are 5xmom the blogger ah?” Die lah! That’s the reason why I hardly show my eldest son’s face clearly on this blog. I don’t want him to have a blogger mom. LOL. Now you know….
So, here’s to another year of kwai-kwai (as opposed to kwailan) blogging. Abuden hor, I cannot live with writing mundane things wan lah. Few days only I get bored liao. Once in a while must cari mangsa and tetak puas-puas. Cos seriously lah, in real life we are so Miss Prissy, so what for blog with the same personality? Let the inner devil crawls out once in a while for entertainment sake, right?

Now that your son’s friends know you are 5xmom the blogger, I hope you will not change your style, but instead be more kwailan.
And I meant it in a good way 😉
Congratulation and well done!
