My brave little girl swim underwater

Assalamualaikum wbt..

Yesterday marks the second month of Aulia' swimming lesson. She was 22 months old. It went pretty well. I wasn't so keen on all the chemicals in the water, but what do you do when you've got lots of kid's in a pool together! All those wees!




I was quite surprised. I wasn't expecting it to happen in her second month lesson- the instructors giving Aulia' her first underwater experience. Her instructor let Aulia' play for a while, practice jumping activities in the water until her eyes level while making an eye contact with her papa. Hubby just need to raise her a little bit and gently put her under the water. 

At home, we was watching movies of kids swimming and we talked about how much fun it is and how we love going under water. In that way, she can be mentally prepared and feel excited on what we are going to do today. 

All we need is her to be comfortable and playful. Hubby then counted to three, said Aulia's name for the signal, blew in her face and then lowered her under the water and gently moved her towards me while being supervised by the instructor. 





Those instructors know the score.. They know that freaked out parents are far more common than freaked out babies. Aulia' was, for the most part, just fine about going under the water. She looked a bit startled when she came up and into her papa's arm, but got over it really quickly. 

All and all, I was so proud of my brave little girl and now I wish I had a pool in our backyard so that I can 'homeschooled' her every day..oh yes and I need a superpower camera so that I can take a lot of pictures of Aulia' swimming underwater again in the future..

And maybe to answer some of my friend question, can Aulia' swim? Well, not alone though. She still need an adult to supervise and hold her. But she sure can submerge for a short period of time and can understand what she's suppose to do.

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

The Hi5 Concert in Malaysia

Assalamualaikum wbt.. My little girl was so giddy about the Hi5 concert in Malaysia since we bought the tickets couple of months ago. She keep saying she's gonna dance along with the Hi5 songs with her friends in front of the stage. We bought the concert tickets via online at TicketPro.com and the concert is held for one week until before the xmas.  One ticket for Aulia' at the Mosh Pit area costs about RM 283 while another two tickets for hubby and myself costs about RM 113 per person. We came a bit earlier than the show at KLPAC after having our lunch at home and we visited the lobby area and bought  Hi5 souvenir for Aulia'. The show started at 2.30 p.m. and as soon as the kids heard the entrance announcement, they all are on their feet ready to rock the concert. Chatterbox or known as "Chats" first appearance and the kids been screaming all the time when it all started including my little one. We can see her excitedly jumping around from our se

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!
