So, how did you find my blog?

**Another time-stamp post. I am probably happily shopping in Singapore on a Friday morning while you are reading this. Please leave your comments because I am interested to find out how you get to know my blog.

Last Friday, I cooked some foods for the youths in my church. I brought some extra for my church’s clerk. She is this dear lady who probably was the first person who welcomed me to the church. Six years ago, I phoned and she told me to come and join the RCIA. When I brought the foods to her, I asked her, “Eh, the Fathers all, sudah makan?” She told me they already had their foods.

Later on, one of the Father met me. So, we chatted a bit. He said, “Too bad I am too full already. I have seen your lovely foods (on my blog) but yet to sample them.”

*sweats* Damn nervous, you know? Knowing blog readers who are just blog readers is one thing. Knowing people that I meet every day who are my blog readers is a totally new kind of ball game. Tension betul.

Then, the conversation somehow led to ‘how you find my blog?’

He told me he was Googling for stuffs, stumbled upon my blog and had been reading it WITHOUT realising that the crazy woman 5xmom is one of the church member. Oh my God! I didn’t dare to ask him, “So, Father, what was your feelings when you found out that ‘blasphemy, this woman belongs to the church’?”

I got a shock one day when he called me by my name because it is only through my blog that he knows my name. *pressure nyerrr* (no lah, actually he is very cool about it)

Still, it is very thrilling that people does not immediately connect the blogger with the real me until much later when they happened to see my kids photos or see my photo. It is sort of respite because it gives me breathing space.

So, folks, if you are reading this, please tell me if you can recall how you find my blog? I am dead curious to know.

Through words of mouth?

Through stumbling upon?

Come on, make me happy with some comments. I will check on comments from Orchard Road. Hopefully, I get comments and I am happy enough without having to burn a hole in shopping therapy.

  1. 5 x mom did your church pastor give you word bashing when he sees your wonderfull four letter words and abreviated chinese bad words at your blog? if he did comment about that, take it as a compliment and dont stop using those words. I think you need to release out your anger and frustrations sometimes by releasing those words at your blog and not through your mouth. as for me i came across your blog by accident during the election period serving Malaysian Central site and got attracted to your name-5 X mom and i like it from the moment i went in. I find you very down to earth and you blog about our malaysian everyday life and to be very honest with you, i find it very entertaining and informative. Keep up the good work! hope you and your family enjoy your holiday in singkapoh.

    Have a safe trip!!!

    Now I remember. I mistakenly said earlier that I came across your blog while searching for election news. It was true in a way but more than anything else, I was searching for more of Martin’s write-ups when he tiu-ed Fathima Idris for her lop-sided arguments. Have always enjoyed his retreats since puberty and now he’s moved back to Ipoh πŸ˜₯ πŸ™
    So since March this year, this is my daily pit-stop. I’m always reminded of the festivals, Church’s n nots, from ur blog. Thks v. much.

  30. I came to know about your blog via Shazmin Shamsuddin’s blog when she was with Mix FM. Since then I’ve been reading your blog and now that I am abroad, I check your blog at least once a day! I enjoy it very much as it covers a wide range of topics and it is so Malaysian. So, thank you for keeping me informed and entertained. Keep up the wonderful work!

  31. I found your blog through someone’s blog a year n half ago when i first started blogging openly for public… I did read your blog sometimes (alittle while only) until i got too busy n have no time to read blogs… after that, kinda totally forgotten about you.. then i stumble back upon your blog during msian election.. and i have been reading your blog at a daily basis ever since then… (i actually go to your blog site at least twice a day k!!!)… but im always your silent reader… πŸ˜€
