Legoland 2015

Went back to Legoland for second visit. This time Ali enjoyed the baby pool as the last time he was only 6 months old not crawling yet. We stayed in the Legoland Hotel next to the park. Awesome lobby, lifts and room. Buffet breakfast so-so. We did wet park one whole day and wet park the next. So tiring but fun, fun, fun! The second night we stayed in Legenda Boutique Hotel in Bukit Indah area which is a 10 minute drive away. The hotel was in the midst of installing a lift, argh! My bad for not checking beforehand. It had just enough room to swing a cat. Never again.

Ali had just recovered from diarrhea which is why he looks so skinny in the  photos. Sarah loved the water park more than the dry park. The trees have grown a bit in the past 2 years so there are some shady areas. This time we managed to board the train that circuits the park. Worth the queue. Food still pricey but hey when you're famished just pay. The pizza combo meal was really good actually. All in all, we had a great time. Discovered how crazy jam Bukit Indah is and where not to stay next time we go to JB.

Liza & Andrea

My aunt and cousin from the US came for a 4 day visit. It was short but sweet. My Auntie Liza wanted to make a new ATM card and also pay a visit to EPF to change the beneficiary. Alas, she told us too late, we only managed to get her the bank card. Andrea loved teh tarik and mamak food. We piled her with cups and cups of it. As both of them were shopaholics, it was easy to entertain them. Just took them to all the malls in the vicinity.

Sarah Gets 3rd Place

Sarah totally surprised us by getting number 3 in her whole class and year. So proud of her. She hardly studied plus her mid-year exam was average. 

Heard her asking Reza for a PS4.

Bye Bye Car

We sold our Honda Civic and downgraded to a Honda City. Story was we sent the Civic for routine service then to kill time, we had a look at the City. A salesman approached and started giving us the low down. We told him our Civic had lots of wear and tear but he said no problem, he called his second-hand dealer to come round. He valued our Civic at 60K. Without hesitating, Reza said yes. We took the Civic for one final spin and drove it to the second-hand car lot the very next day. We are now using a friend's car until the paperwork is settled and City ready for pick-up. As much as I miss the Civic am so looking forward to the City as it is much more economical plus kinder to the pocket.

Dance Mom Malaysia Style

After helping out with action song, Mimi from PIBG (Parents Teacher Association) asked me and another mum, Gee, to continue to help out with Malay traditional dance. After a month plus of rehearsing after school in the afternoons, the kids finally competed in the inter-primary and secondary school Malay Traditional Dance Competition on 23rd and 24th September 2014. This was SKTTDI(2)'s maiden attempt and we got placed 16th out of 20 over schools.

Selamat Hari Raya 2014

I have been wanting a nice formal family photo for ages. We went to some photo studios to ask and the prices they quoted was ridiculous. We ended up using the self-timer on our trusty old Sony digital camera. 

In other news, we had atok and family over for a night. We took them to Ikea. They loved it but Atok got a bit tired in the end.

42 is the new 20

Whoa! Hari Raya first day on my birthday. I got a surprise cake from Atok and family. I laughed and cried at the sight of it. I don't have a photo as everyone was laughing at me. But here we are at Baskin Robbins in the evening post rendang, lemang etc for a cleansing palate session.
