Day trip to Penang

My poor little blog has been so neglected lately. Things have been so crazy, and of course I've also been lazy in between (story of my life, ha!), but I've got so much to catch up on!

I'll start with our trip to Penang somewhere around last month? since those are the most recent pics on my camera :)

Last month I had this 'educational session' with my lil girl where I showed her few of the air, land and marine transportations which includes bus, lorry, airplanes, cars and boats. Out of all those transportations, she specifically interested in ferry. She wanted me to show her what's ferry on youtube and immediately told her dad that she wanted to ride it. That week end, my husband insists that we go for a day trip to Penang so our lil girl could experience the ferry ride. 

After breakfast that morning, we drove from Ipoh to Butterworth ferry terminal and enjoy our calming ride to Penang Island.

Look at that face tho!


Once we arrived at Penang jetty, we drove to Armenian St.and took bicycle ride around the street. There are shophouses, cafes, artists gallery and their famous attraction which is the Penang wall street art. My lil girl got all excited riding the bike and I was like..really scared that I might crash on people or other vehicle! It's not like I used to ride bicycle often, maybe once a year?hmm..

We had laksa Penang at Padang Kota for lunch and then headed to Teluk Bahang for prayers and further proceed to the toy museum. There wasn't much photos in my camera because it was all toys and ya know, I'm not that as interested as my husband were, so he took all the toys photos in his smartphone and I only have these..

Later that evening we had dinner at Padang Brown (one of my favourite street food) and head back home afterwards :)

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:)
