Looking forward to...

CNY long holiday!!   :) :) 

Assalamualaikum wbt..

I'm looking forward to CNY holiday coz we get a long break from Friday-Wednesday. Been cracking my head as to where to go..Last year, we took a road trip to Taiping with hubby and SIL and found out the hard way about travelling during festive season. Left on the first day of CNY to MIL house in Ipoh and what a mistake it was. Took us, not 4, not 5, not 6 but 7 hours to get there. Left there at 11am sharp and got there at 6pm, unbelievable. It's like the whole of Malaysia decided to head north at the very same time. This year I expect and foresee the same fiasco.
Another year wiser I've decided to perhaps fly down somewhere but question is, where??
Some of the places we've considered:

Hyatt Regency @ Kuantan -would be a perfect place to go but no more voucher bookings allowed anymore so darn it!

PD- too crowded and HOT

Parkland Apartment @ Cameron Highlands- Nice deal 3D2N stay at 3-bedroom service apartment for RM268 but blackout day starts from 8-17 Feb 2013, so darn it!

Gold Coast Morib Resort- Water theme park overlooking calm seas in Morib at the price of RM168 for 2D1N, still blackout dates start from 10-17 Feb,2013.

The Legend  Resort Cherating Beach, Pahang- The complimentary usage of jacuzzi, sauna, swimming pool and gym seems so tempting at the price of RM158 but stay period starts from Feb 16 onward. Heck  :(

Jakarta- flight tickets way too expensive and will be crowded with Malaysians

Hatyai- flight tickets to alor setar over-priced, driving down isn't an option and hotel rooms are most likely booked.

Hubby suggested Resort World Sentosa Singapore-but I'm dreading the thought of driving...All the flights on  Airasia are really expensive in CNY. Only festive seasons that they are not exactly the budget airlines it should be. I love airasia on a non-peak season. Manage to got a ticket to Kuching on September for only RM58!

Nice view aight??mmm..will consider it..
plus my cousin offer a stay at their place in Woodland so it won't hassle us to find a hotel which I optimistically they'd fully booked especially on this festive season.

Maybe we'll just stay at home. Malls and roads here would be empty. We'll probably throw one or two house CNY parties, check into a spa and enjoy the tranquillity that KL can never offer on a normal day.

Smile smile:) I already smell the LONG long holiday :) :)

Saving the best for the last-Me!

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.. B's nature of work leaves me with no choice but to be independent. His work schedule knows no weekends and public holiday. But a kaki jalan I am by nature and nurture,what if it's only me and Aulia'? bring it on! Nak keluar jugak! I thought  it was impossible at first but naaa, practice makes perfect, I am so used to it already, you'll be surprised of what I can do with only one hand. Haha The skills develop naturally. From folding stroller and do groceries shopping while pushing the cart and her stroller? I have done all that. But there are time I do need hands from strangers, and kudos to Malaysians, they're helpful. And I think this is the perfect bonding time because Aulia' is with her baby sitter during the weekdays. Her new doll with blinking eyes and annoying sound..  So there are times, I'd love to doll up, but now I have a plus one! How? I doll her up as well! luckily she's a daughter, dear God thanks

Carnaval Churrascaria

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.. Last week we had an invitation from our boss for a departmental dinner.This is the third time I join in with the whole Renewable Energy team for official  makan-makan . So we had this dinner session at a weird place named Carnaval Churrascaria, (I still had a problem of pronouncing this restaurant's name) somewhere near to the Atria Mall in Damansara Jaya SS22, Petaling Jaya. Carnaval Churasscaria is one such Brazilian Restaurant, decked out with Brazilian national colour of yellow and green. It is a brazillian style where all the meats are grilled and the waiter come to each table with knives and skewered meat and slice it for us.. For non-MEAT lovers, you may opt for the non-meety buffet..they actually have rice, pasta, potatoes, salads and some seafood. For those who loves garlic bread, you should try their garlic bread which mixed with cheese..Two thumbs up!! yummy!  

Aulia' birthday party

Assalamualaikum wbt I am finally getting around to share few photos from Aulia's birthday party from a couple weeks ago. We had the greatest afternoon at my in-law's place with siblings, cousins and relatives celebrating our little girl turned TWO and Eid:) I think it's really fun to throw parties for our baby. I know she won't remember it, but it's her birthday and in my opinion, it's more about celebrating everyone in the family and we all made it! What a great year! I am so thankful my in-laws help me with last-minutes stuffs. Sunday morning was hectic! SILs had to pick up the cake and the boys spent the morning finishing off some of the decors (tied the banner together, arranging the furnitures, etc.). The tables, catering foods, fruits, candies and chocolate fountain were also delivered that morning. I took a few pics beforehand, but too busy with Aulia' to take any pics during the party. (My BIL manage to took pictures of the party. Pheww!).
