Trip to Penang

Assalamualaikum wbt..


I think this is the week of pure relaxation and indeed is a WONDERFUL week! We had a two weeks holiday last month and took a road trip from Ipoh to Penang. We left out on the 5th day of Eid around 4pm. The drive went really well. Aulia' slept most of it and we didn't hit much traffic. When we got there, we all got settled in and just hung out! Aulia' had hard time going down for bed. Wednesday we hit the beach at Batu Feringghi. It was so nice being right on the beach because Aulia' lasted all of maybe 30 mins, haha! She ate the sand, which drove me nuts! We only took her back out there two more times before deciding it was just too much work for 15- 30 minutes of fun. We brought her to Penang public pool and she LOVED the pool though. She floated around and kicked her little legs. Hubby and I had a blast and didn't complain once that we were not spending all day on the beach. After had breakfast on Thursday, we hit the Penang Hill and got T-shirt for Aulia'. Those were the two must dos on my list while we were there. We went out for ice-cream twice. Hubby met his Uni mate and his wife while strolling at Penang Hill. Its really nice to bump into an old friend after 6 years of graduation. We also went to Gurney drive hawker center to have the infamous pasemboq and Balik Pulau for durian. Our visit to Botanical Garden was awesome coz Aulia' can watch the monkeys in less than 1 meter away! We first ride on the tram and went for one round, then took a slow walk up to the sloppy hill where tram doesn't go through.


We decided to come back on Friday instead of Saturday like everyone else which was a great decision. We had done laundry through out the week so we only had one load when we got home,SCORE! We were all unpacked and relaxing by Sunday afternoon which was great. We went for grocery shopping in the evening and we relaxed some more. Perfect way to end a vacation!

Here is a big photo dump from the week.

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!
