Aulia's New Gadget

Assalamualaikum wbt..

When Ipad/ Tab was launched and everyone was seen carrying it around, I never really understood the craze about it. Now I am what you call a technie noob. Same goes with my husband. I don't care much for gadgets, and neither do they care for me. I also don't understand the fuss about having the latest phone and so forth. I might admire it for a while and wish I had one but I can never bring myself to splurge that much on a tool that might get lost/stolen or be completely under utilized due to my noob-ness, heh. So when most of the time people talk about the latest gadget or parade their latest 'canggih' phone I completely blank out hide my crappy BB old phone  and just equate their love for gadgets akin to my love for shoes? Except I think my love for shoes is a cheaper hobby than theirs, hahah!. 

Now I am no fan of getting my child addicted to such gadgets either. I think its plain bad when kids are shoved with their parents Tab/Ipad when they go to the malls. I've seen it countless of times. My child however is your old school kinda brat who ENJOYS going to the bookstore. I kid you not, the immense happiness she gets walking in a bookstore is beyond me. Aulia' loves flipping through books and when we go to the store she says "book book !" Too cute.

There was one time we took her to Borders and she almost cried when the cashier took her book away to key it into the system. I wont have any complains if she turns out to be a little bookworm coz I remember finishing up a thick novel in just one day!!I was so into my book that nothing else mattered. That's the power of a good book.

While I'm glad my daughter enjoys picking up and holding a book, I also know we need to keep up with times. Besides, some apps for children are actually quite beneficial and would be a good tool for Aulia'. Of course limiting her time on it is also essential- so ibu and papa can hog it :)

So now we are proud owners of the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 although the husband was acting like a little boy by warning me not to hog it to myself. He got further irritated when I told him I wanted to buy a HOT PINK cover for it. . Smile smile!!

To date its mostly filled with a few games for Ibu and alotsa of kiddie LEARNING apps for Aulia'. Some of the learning materials are actually quite good and little one seems attentive so far, repeating words and learning about animals.For the past 2 months I've spent teaching her these things and she has since picked up more words. Her favourite so far is this Elmo teaching tool and of course Pocoyo series!! That kid just LOVES her Pocoyo cartoon with her favourites character being Pato, the duck. But still Aulia' called it 'Titi'..

Dear Ibu &Papa thank you for this Galaxy Tab!! I can now access to Pocoyo whenever I want!

That said, we're limiting the use of the Tab only to home usage. And it doesn't help that every time Ibu buy an app,papa would received notifications from the Bank that something was charged to his credit card. But oh wells, I've been blaming it on his daughter's apps thus far so we'll see how long this can carry on.. coz papa seems very generous when it comes to his baby girl.Don't they all?  :) :)

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!).
