Mummy is away again

Sunday 10 April 2011 @ 11:05 pm

I was back from Genting Highlands with my workmates last night. Well, I did not go there for vacation but attended a great seminar related with my business – Zero To Hero. Besides the seminar, we enjoyed party at night. The title of our dress code is DOT. My friend and I have been searching for such special occasion dresses the day before.

I arranged well for Marcus before I leave. Hubby arranged not to go travel when I’m away. He responsible to be a driver for his son. After school, Marcus went to his grandmother’s house. At night, hubby took him back home after work.

I knew that hubby and Marcus enjoyed a lot when I was not around. That’s good, so I can go business trip happily next time without worry about them. :)

Great holiday in Singapore

Wednesday 4 August 2010 @ 5:36 pm

Last two weeks, we had another family trip in Singapore.  I know it had been long time for me to update the post. But I have uploaded all photos in Facebook. Just to share the place which we stayed and happy moments of my kid. 

We stayed in Festive Hotel under The Resort World in Sentosa Island. Hubby has reserved a room there. Most of the hotel rooms were fully booked.

We arrived in the hotel early in the morning and requested to give us for advance check in since we have kid. It’s advantage to bring kid to go travel, and we had extra six hours to stay. :P

Newly open casino. I didn’t go in, but hubby and he won SD300….

After rest, we went for our lunch before back to hotel to change. Marcus really can’t wait to play in the pool. We went to Hard Rock hotel swimming pool as our hotel swimming pool is under renovation. I didn’t bring his sand mould toys, so he’s still very enjoy using his hands to build a small mountain. :)  

The next day, we went to The Universal Studios Singapore.

A quick family photo with Madagasscar…..

We didn’t realise that actually we spent more than eight hours inside. I wonder why some people say one hour can come out? May be they didn’t go for the rides and exciting games.  

We had our dinner before say goodbye to The Universal Studios Singapore. Marcus was very exhausted and knocked off after shower. Hubby and I enjoyed watching tv while having our room service supper.

After check out the next day, we moved to Orchard Road. Having a great day shopping. This time shop till my hubby drop, but not me. At night, dinner with hubby friends and that’s the end of our third day. Last day, prepared to go home.

A weekend to the hills

Thursday 13 May 2010 @ 6:43 pm

Marcus asked his daddy to bring him go pluck strawberries after seeing a cartoon movie.  Hubby brought us up to the hills, Cameron Highlands last Sunday, in conjuction celebrated Mother’s Day too with me. Haha…one stone shot two birds, clever hubby.

Nowadays, he likes to pose for me….

Like father like son ???

When I look through the photo in flickr, I know that hubby really needs to look for best acne treatments. May be due to the bad weather, lack of sleep and water, I can see his pimples growing on his face these days again. Anyway, I don’t think he will go for it, he always think that it is for women. :P  

Before we arrive, he asked me when we reach and he wants to go pluck strawberries, then when we arrived, he just concentrate on those junk food.  

Ok, don’t talk about him. We reached Cameron Highlands about noon and had our lunch, steamboat before we off to Kia farm to pluck strawberries. This is the second time that we’re here.

Next, we went to BOH tea plantation for light tea. It was so crowded due to Mother’s Day. By the time we reached there, most people are going down hills. LOL!!!

We have to go home before night, as hubby has an appointment with his agent after dinner with us. 

 Here, I wish all mummies HAPPY BELATED MOTHER’S DAY!!!!

“Honeymoon” to Macau

Tuesday 20 April 2010 @ 8:42 pm

It is a backdated post. I am so lazy to upload photos and write a post about my “honeymoon” trip to Macau with hubby two weeks ago. I had uploaded photos in FB actually. Anyway, here is a simple post about the trip for my kid when he knows how to read this blog. :P

It was Easter day and Ching Beng festival when we were in Macau. Since hubby was a bit free that time, so he bought the air tickets and booked hotels after confirmed with me. It was a last minute, so the rate for our flight quite expensive, with about 1k per person. Of course I can go anytime with him. We just left our kid to stay with my parents and off we went to Macau.

Here are the places that we visited :

St Paul Ruins and Senado Square

The Grand Lisboa hotel

Macau Fisherman’s Wharf

This photo taken by hubby, considered the best. He said it is called “creative” :P We did not want to disturb other people to help us for photo taking.

Stayed a night at The Venetian hotel

Inside The Venetian hotel, ground floor is a huge casino.

There are many shoppes, but mostly for window shopping, superb expensive. I did not buy anything for myself even a pair of Cole Haan shoes or clothes. See, I am a good wife. LOL!!! Actually hubby kept asking me to buy some, but I am not so generous to spend on it. I wonder why I am so good. Now a bit regret lor!

Shopping weekend

Tuesday 2 February 2010 @ 5:47 pm

Hubby supposed to meet his friend, an insurance agent to upgrade his life insurance policy. Hubby cancelled the appointment as he wanted to bring us go KL earlier so that I have enough time to shop. LOL!!!  After dilly dally, we reached KL at noon.

Checked into hotel, which is so near to Pavilion shopping centre.

Swimming pool and Pavilion view from the hotel room

Just about three minutes walking distance to Pavilion shopping mall.

The CNY decoration. I didn’t snap much photos of it as I busy to shop after we had lunch at Pavilion.

Marcus and daddy.

I can’t shop much that day as my kid wanted to go back hotel and swimming. After changed, Marcus can’t wait to jump into the pool, but too bad, no baby pool for him. Hubby has to carry him and pretend to swim. :P

At night, we had Korean food for dinner. I love it so much. My friend recommended me to this restuarant. It was raining cat and dog when we wanted to go back hotel. We were exhausted and knocked off early.

The next morning, we had late breakfast at Pavilion’s food court. I tell you, I want to order all the food I saw, too many choices. Hubby laughed at me as I ordered Korean food again. LOL!!! Next, shopping time for us. We met up with my brother and sister in law, they also came here for shopping. We’re so crazy to shop as we got some great discounts vouchers like Guess, Jaspal, Dome, and etc from Pavilion.

We thought to back home earlier to have dinner with my parents, but we had dinner at Pavilion before we started our journey back to Ipoh. I had a great shopping weekend in KL even I just shopped at the same shopping mall only.

Arabian night party

Monday 25 January 2010 @ 11:10 am

I had a great weekend with my friends in KL. This was the first time I attended such a grand seminar and party at Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre. Even though it was a tiring trip but I enjoyed myself a lot. I left Marcus to hubby to take care of him. I am glad that he didn’t cry for me for the last two days.  

At night, we needed to dress up in Arabian costumes, but my friend and I didn’t wear it. It was last minute planning, so we hardly find any nice costumes, somemore we don’t want to waste money just to rent or buy it.

Deng, deng, deng, deng, my friend and I wore simple clothes but we still look pretty, right? Hehehe……

I saw many women and men dressed up nicely in Arabian costumes at the party. They really keep their body fit. Thanks to Herbalife. Some of my new friends told me they do always visit to for more knowledge too.

p/s : more pics in Facebook soon……do check it out.

School holidays is coming soon

Tuesday 3 November 2009 @ 10:43 am

School holidays is two weeks away.  I decided to let Marcus to join for his school holiday programme.  Some might think why not let the little child rest and enjoy during this long school holiday at home. For me, it’s good to send him to school to learn and play instead of just sitting in front of TV every hour. Afterall, it’s just half day.

Where to bring Marcus go during this coming school holidays? Hubby is thinking that we could stay a night at Hard Rock Hotel, Penang. No overseas trip until next year as we need to save more for our coming new house. So no stay at any hotels in orlando at the meantime, think have to wait hubby to retire first. LOL!!!

Actually hubby wants to celebrate my birthday, which is in November, so he planned to go Penang. Somemore his kid likes beach. My friends also decided to join us too when they knew it. It’s more fun to go in a group too, especially with kids.

A trip to Penang

Wednesday 16 September 2009 @ 5:00 pm

The weekend took us to Penang again, a day trip for shopping and hunting good food.  It’s our first outing family trip after ‘quaratine’ at home for many weeks just because kiasi of H1N1. LOL!!!  Too bad that I totally forgot to take the most important thing, camera. Argh! May be I’m too excited for the trip. :P

Marcus always asks me to buy him music things. He got to know about the name of some musical instructments just because of the book below. I hardly get them here even at toy wholesaler shop.   

We went to Lorong Selamat to have our lunch. We had not been there for quite some time. Miss the hawker food very much all the time. Yes, we left there with full tummy. All food are absolutely delicious.  And then, of course, we went to Gurney Plaza for a bit of shopping. Finally, I found a set of musical instructment at Toys’R'us for Marcus.

Lovely toys, drum, maracas, trumpet, cymbals, tambourine

We left Gurney Plaza near 5pm and we proceed to Queensbay Mall for another great shopping. On the way there, Marcus felt asleep in the car. When we reached the mall, my parents asked better to let him sleep for a while. Hubby and I didn’t bother and carried him out from the car. He woke up and we’re glad that he didn’t play tantrums at all as I promised him to bring him for kiddie rides.  

It’s time for dinner. I planned to go Bukit Tambun but my parents wanted to dine in the mall, so we went to Dragon-I. They wanted their grandson to have a good sleep in the car after dinner. They didn’t want us to wake him up again. LOL!!! Hubby promised to bring me to Bukit Tambun coming days. I wonder if he needs some fat burners to standby.

First trip to Sungai Petani

Tuesday 2 June 2009 @ 6:12 pm

It was our first trip to Sungai Petani last Sunday. We went there in a car with my childhood friend and her family. Never ever thought that this place is so small that I will bore to die if I were to stay here. It was about 2 hours drive from Ipoh. We stopped at my friend’s grandmother house for a rest before visit to my another childhood friend.

This swing caught the kids’ attention. Even though it’s so hot outside, they don’t bother but keep swinging for fun. The main purpose we went there was to visit our friend’s newly open shop.  


Marcus keeps running around with SL, my friend’s kid once we reached the shop. Gosh, they even “help” to rearrange those small plastic containers there. We’re extremely hot in the shop, so you can imagine how’s the kids look like that time with their red cheeks. LOL!!!

Next, we headed to Queensbay Mall for our late lunch.  

This is Marcus most favourite ride…..

Hardly snap a nice photo with the kids, I think this is the best…. :P

Why daddy looks so unhappy? He is very hungry…. 

After enjoyed our good food at Dragon-I, we shopped around. Marcus can’t wait anymore as he wants to go for kiddie rides. This time we’re not go in Toy’R'us. I know my kid sure will grab his favourite toy cars. He really has a lot at home. If he is not with me, I definitely will get him a kitchen toy set and some mini toy copper kitchen sinks. He likes to play masak-masak.  He likes to “make” fruit juices for me just like what I did for me almost every day.

I was so surprised that he’s not tired at all throughout the day. But he slept at last in the car after we took our dinner at Bukit Tambun. :)

Our weekend in KL

Monday 4 May 2009 @ 3:13 pm

The weekend took us to KL again. At first, I thought to cancel the trip as Marcus is still having slight fever, cough and flu, but he wanted to go badly. WHY? No, not interested in shopping, but dinosaurs.  Actually my father in law not allowed us to bring Marcus goes travel. But hubby insisted to go after seeing his son waited for him so long at home. Anyway, it’s not a big problem. We, of course brought along his medicine too.    

Waiting his daddy comes back from work and bring him to KL….

After checked in the hotel and rest a while, we headed to the Backyard Monsters & Dinosaurs exhibition at Mid Valley.

Can’t wait to go in…..

Once Marcus saw those giant dinosaurs, he refused to get down and wanted to carry. LOL!!! May be his own dinosaurs in his mind are full of colours. He has a set of colourful dinosaurs puzzle. Anyway, he is not feeling well that time. There are not much dinosaurs and bugs in the hall, and we can finish our visit in less than 30 minutes.  


Carpenter ant

Bug’s eye view – what you see through may be different from what a bug sees.

It’s quite boring actually but hubby and I did learnt something there. As for Marcus, he was interested on the bug’s eye view ONLY! He said that he can see many mummies out there. LOL!!!

The next day, we took Marcus to One Utama shopping mall after checked out. He had a great time on the rides.

Next, Toys’R'Us is a must go place. Again, Marcus chose his favourite toy – TRAIN this time. We also met this cartoon man.

Argh, these machine toy balls are introduced by my friend’s son. Hubby decided get Marcus a mini thomas train for him.  

We met another giant cartoon on the way to car park. We supposed go Ikea with our friends but Marcus started to throw tantrum, very sleepy and having bad running nose, we decided to go back Ipoh. You can noticed that daddy carried Marcus most of the time during the trip. It’s better than taking weight loss pills. LOL!!!

Hong Kong – Day 4 & 5

Thursday 2 April 2009 @ 2:12 pm

@@@ 25 March 2009 @@@

We had our late breakfast at Tao Heung Dim Sum restaurant, Tsim Sha Shui which recommended by our hotel receptionist. Supposed there was a bus fetched us to Disneyland at 9.30am, but hubby decided to walk around again before go to Disneyland. So, we left our luggage bags to the driver and asked him to help us passed to the Disneyland Hollywood hotel. Yes, we stayed there for a night and got a second day free to Disneyland.

With his pillow and bolsters on the way to Disneyland in MRT

Our room for five of us

Then, we took MRT to Disneyland. After checked into the hotel, it’s about 2.30pm. After rest a while in the room, we began our journey in Disneyland.  We walked past Main Street, USA. We took photos with some Disney characters before we headed to Fantasyland for rides.

With Goofy….

With Mickey and Minnie…

Marcus likes Mickey Mouse more than Goofy

Marcus really excited with the ride

Marcus likes to ride on this Cinderella Carrousel. We went several rounds on it. We’re lucky as the queues weren’t long for most of the rides though it’s not a peak season.  

Marcus wanted mummy to snap photos for him :-D


We had some snacks while waiting for the fireworks which in front of the Sleeping Beauty Castle. It’s so cool and windy but no raining that night.

We had dinner in the hotel. On the way back to our room, I decided to let Marcus to have fun in a kids’ playroom. There’re many children and parents, luckily I can find a nice place for my boy. 


Playing kitchen sets and colouring….

There’re two boys who are in their aged 6 grabbed Marcus’s toys while he is playing. He didn’t cry but keep playing his other kitchen sets. Again, the boys took his toys. Gosh, this time he can’t control himself and cried. I told him we have to share toys with others. My mother in law took some colour pencils and a Mickey’s colouring paper for him. He stopped crying then. Guess what, the boys’ mother was around us but yet to scold or teach her kids. After few minutes, we asked Marcus to leave the room.

Second day in Disneyland

We had our late breakfast in a chinese restaurant at Adventureland. After the breakfast, we went on Jungle River Cruise for a ride. Marcus didn’t like to go on this ride as they are some shocking scenes appeared.

We then proceed to Tomorrowland. Hubby brought Marcus went for a car ride. The queue was long and they waited for more than 20 minutes.

After we had our late lunch, we back to Main Street, USA as to catch the parade. The parade starts at 3.30pm. After that, we shopped at Disney shop. Marcus so excited when he sees those toy cars, trains. In the end, we got him a Disney train and a box of toy cars.  


It’s a small world

Last, we went on a sail to enjoy scenes with mini costumed dolls and Disney characters singing the classic tune in Fantasyland again. We missed this on the first day in Disneyland as we rushed to catch for the train ride. It’s almost 5.30pm. We back to hotel and waited for the driver to transfer us to the airport. We arrived in LCCT at 12.15am.  That’s all for our 5 days 4 nights trip in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong – Day 3

Monday 30 March 2009 @ 5:55 pm

@@@ 24 March 2009 @@@

Mummy, I want the soft drink…..Please get it for me from daddy

All of us woke up late at 9.30am after the tiring day tour.  After having breakfast in Mcdonald near the Tsim Sha Tsui pier, it’s about 15 minutes walk from our hotel, we took the Star Ferry ride over to the Wan Chai ferry pier, HK Island. Actually I purposely planned for Marcus as he likes to ride on ferry.   

We’re going to stop at Wan Chai Pier

View of HK Island

We then walked again to Times Square shopping mall at Causeway Bay. It’s great to walk around than taking MRT or taxi since the weather is so nice that day with temperature about 20 degrees.

My mother and mother in law enjoyed coffee in the mall while I’m walking around. I really can’t shop there as all are branded stuffs with shocking price. Besides that, Marcus pulled me back to have a cup of coffee. He didn’t want his daddy’s pocket on fire. LOL!!! But at last, I got myself a new design of purse from Esprit. :-P  


As for our lunch, I brought them to have wanton noodle. I read a review from a blog that said about this Wanton noodle restaurant at Causeway Bay. It’s called Mak Kee’s at Jardine Bazaar road. The wanton noodle is different from what we eat in Malaysia. Just see the wantoon with big prawn. Oh, yummy!  

Then, we went to Tsim Sha Shui by MRT and back to hotel for a rest. After dilly dally, we headed to Avenue of Stars again. It’s also 15 minutes walk from our hotel, which is near Tsim Sha Shui pier. We can’t watch the Symphony of Lights show on the first day, so I decided to go there on the second day. Luckily no raining that night. The Hong Kong skyline at night is so beautiful.  

After the show, Marcus decided want me to snap some photos for him. He was so excited and happy even he does not have enough sleep.

I like this photo much…..

Marcus with po po and mah mah

After that, we went for our dinner at New World Centre shopping mall, which is near to the Avenue of Stars. We shopped around for some snacks then back to hotel. That’s all for our third day in Hk. Stay tune for more updates about HK Disneyland. :-)
