Day trip to Penang

My poor little blog has been so neglected lately. Things have been so crazy, and of course I've also been lazy in between (story of my life, ha!), but I've got so much to catch up on!

I'll start with our trip to Penang somewhere around last month? since those are the most recent pics on my camera :)

Last month I had this 'educational session' with my lil girl where I showed her few of the air, land and marine transportations which includes bus, lorry, airplanes, cars and boats. Out of all those transportations, she specifically interested in ferry. She wanted me to show her what's ferry on youtube and immediately told her dad that she wanted to ride it. That week end, my husband insists that we go for a day trip to Penang so our lil girl could experience the ferry ride. 

After breakfast that morning, we drove from Ipoh to Butterworth ferry terminal and enjoy our calming ride to Penang Island.

Look at that face tho!

Once we arrived at Penang jetty, we drove to Armenian St.and took bicycle ride around the street. There are shophouses, cafes, artists gallery and their famous attraction which is the Penang wall street art. My lil girl got all excited riding the bike and I was like..really scared that I might crash on people or other vehicle! It's not like I used to ride bicycle often, maybe once a year?hmm..

We had laksa Penang at Padang Kota for lunch and then headed to Teluk Bahang for prayers and further proceed to the toy museum. There wasn't much photos in my camera because it was all toys and ya know, I'm not that as interested as my husband were, so he took all the toys photos in his smartphone and I only have these..

Later that evening we had dinner at Padang Brown (one of my favourite street food) and head back home afterwards :)

Girls trip to Sabah

Memorial weekend after I had my HSG test, Mary, Kak Ju, Nini and I got to fly down to KK to spend three blissful days hanging out with our dear friend from uni, Jessica. The five of us studied together in UPM SIX years ago so we decided a reunion was a great excuse for me to ditch the husband and my little girl and have some serious girl-time in Sabah. Lucky for us Jess is an amazing host and planned everything out perfectly.

A few of the highlights were our stay at J Residence, the upside-down house in Tamparuli, Kundasang wet market, Desa Cattle Farm Kundasang, Luanti River Kelah fish spa and Sabah tea farm.

It was so refreshing to be with old friends and enjoy my first trip to north Borneo... and I can officially declare that I have covered most of the states in Malaysia (haven't cover Labuan yet!). yipsss!

My Instagram update for this photo: Waking up to this! -Our stay at J Residence Kundasang, the view is so breathtaking :)
Enjoying my morning view:)
The five of us at Desa Cattle farm Kundasang. The view of Kinabalu mount was blocked by the thick cloud.

We then headed to Tagal Luanti in Ranau and had fun time soaking our feet in the river and tickled by Klah fishes. You can see our funny faces and those are really sweet memories of us!
Our epic jump at Sabah tea after lunch.
We had great dish at Jalan Tuaran; Lokan.
Later that night we had dinner at the foot hill of Mount Kinabalu.
We had local food dish named Hinava Sada (Raw Fish Salad) that taste so great I almost finished up the whole plate :)

The day before upon arrival in KK, we went to the upside-down house located in Tamparuli. Nothing much except the upside down house and all the furniture that has been glued upside down on the ceiling-technically the floor of the house. You need to pay RM10 for the entrance.
Our Prado ride a.k.a Jess' parents car :) hehe!
Mary and I at the foothill of Mount Kinabalu
Kak Ju and I shopping at the wet market Kundasang..
We also had durian session somewhere at the roadside heading to Kundasang. I can say the trip was great and I really hope that we can spent more time together like this. Ok let's plan for our next trip girlsss!!!!

Mom bestie

Building a close relationship with my 5- year old daughter has been a journey. Don't get me wrong, from the moment I felt those first kicks in my belly I love her fiercely and when I held her in my arms for the very first time, I knew she will have my heart forever.

However, as a parent you quickly learn that while you technically do hold all the control in the parent-child relationship, you really have no control. If your 2-year-old decides it is her life mission to refuse to wear socks and shoes, chances are she will be going shoeless that day.

The terrible twos were beyond terrible and three was in a completely different realm. . . like who came up with 'terrible twos??' Two was NOTHING compared to how terrible age three was.err..and four.

Today, Aulia' and I have a very special bond. We've work through many things and I now better understand her personality and what she needs and she better understand how she should behave and how to communicate in a way that benefits us all. Growth is a miraculous thing. The age of five has been a game changer. Whereas a year ago it was at times like a war zone during the bedtime routine, she now sweetly ask me to carry her up to bed. Some nights I can't hold back my tears of happiness thinking just how far we've come in her five short years. She love me. She really, really, really loved me. And the love I fell in return is so the best way possible.

You are mom bestie, darling!
My sweet little Aulia' :)

Aulia' is 5!

Happy 5th birthday to my biggest girl!!

We've got a lot of changes and transitions happening in our family right now, not the least of which is us moving from KL to Ipoh and the next month to KL again and to Shah Alam this year end. Aulia' started her kindy at a brand new school in Ipoh for the past four months and I'm so proud to say that Aulia' is handling everything like a champ so far. I love this little girl with all my heart.

This was her birthday celebration at Tadika ABS Taman Cempaka Ipoh:)


I hope she will remember these moments and all of her friends here; Wardina, Amna, Aisya, Annisa and the month we'll be moving back to KL and she will soon start her school session at her previous kindy. Personally I think she like it more here than her previous school. She had so much fun for the past four months where she had the school trip to the state zoo, Ramadhan programme, sports day, archery, prayers time and lotsa birthday celebrations :) I just hope they will meet again in future. And.. Happy birthday to you my little princess. You are sweet, kind hearted and I fell in love with you all over again. It felt like yesterday you was in my tummy and at the blink of an eyes, you have grown to this amazing lovely girl. Mom loves you so much Aulia'
