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.

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 for being so understanding! I am grateful! Tutu you say?! Of course! and…

DIY Dulang Hantaran Fresh Flowers

Assalamualaikum wbt..

Last week was my BIL E-day. So I was assigned by my MIL to do the 'Dulang Hantaran' and it decorations including all the goodies inside the dulang.. since this is only the engagement event, not so much personal items to be included in the dulang except for the rings.. both for merisik and engagement..
Since last time during my Nikah day, I did the DIY dulang hantaran using the artificial flowers and this time around I was thinking to do it with the fresh flowers. I purposely wanted it that way just because I can save a lot of time (since I am way too busy with my PhD study and I have to travel to and fro KL-JB) and at the same time we can avoid the hustle of keeping the dulang covered with dust in the store room. Lol..talking about experience huh!
And most importantly.. we can save a lot of money.. Lemme show you the trick..

Sending off dulang for fresh flower decorations can cost you up to RM75 to RM150 per tray excluding the items inside the dulang. Mi…

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:)
