B’s School Trip

Tomorrow Bella has a school trip!!

Her day out without mommy.. Gosh!!

B and her classmate will be going to a fire station!! Hehe..

I think that’s cute!

When I told her babatok, of course, knowing her babatok, he will come out with ideas on how to make things / trip / toys more educational for the kids! My father is very good at that. When I was still schooling, he made me and my siblings write essays everytime we went for a school trip / vacation or anything. Come to think about it, it does help us with memorising, language and writing skills. Those were the days.. This time, for Bella, he suggested us to pre-educate her before her trip. He suggested us to buy some toys or books that is related to the trip (in this case, a fire truck sounds good!)

We rushed to the toy shop and got this for B..

A toy fire truck and a little storybook of fireman (in a shape of fire truck!!)

Hahahaha… Mommy yang over reading this book over and over again to her.. and B was like.. “Mommy, I’m watching Nemo, can we read this later?”

What??? *kiasu mommy mode on*

The Laid-Back and The Clean-Obsessed!

Another outing day..

This time the girls get to enjoy the beach!!

We were in PD yesterday evening. It was just a day trip. We drove down to PD after lunch and already back in KL by 7pm. Both grandparents came and join us together with their cousins. We had real fun, we brought food from home, with tikar.. had our teatime under the tree. It’s just so nice to be together with the family enjoying the nature..

To our surprise, we gotta know Tasha is such a laid-back child. She loves running around (ok, not really running but walking..) with her barefoot enjoying the sand. She just sit on the sand and started to play with it (and that includes putting it in her mouth!! Haha..)

That one definitely she got it from her daddy!!

She doesn’t even bother the sand in between her toes. She loves it!!

And that’s her enjoying the waves and wet sand on her own. No drama at all!!

And Bella, on the other hand… is a clean-obsessed!! (Like mommy!! Hahah..)

She wanted to build a sand castle but doesn’t want her hands to get dirty. Haha.. I had to sit down with her and slowly make her touch the sand and explain to her it’s ok that her hand is dirty. It takes time but towards the end, she’s getting better at it!

And to get her into the water, is another episode of drama. Maybe the waves scares her. She’s only convinced to go into the water when I told her the sea is just a huge swimming pool.. Hahahha.. It’s true isn’t it??

And she believes me!!

Owh, and my sister (Dr Hamizah) is back in KL for her maternity leave. She gave birth to a beautiful baby girl last September, Rhea Aireen, now 3 months old. Here she is with her babatok..

Check out her thigh!! Yummehhh!!!

It was definitely a memorable day for all of us. Since we had too much fun.. and Bella needs more beach-training (hehe..) we definitely gonna do this more often!! ;)

Another Animal-Friendly Trip

It’s family outing time again!!

Both me and my husband are on leave until next year!! Haha.. January 1, 2014 is in 3 days time!! After that, we will be back to our daily work. I guess every parents are the same, we try to spend as much time as we could with our children. To compensate back with our busy schedule!! So, we use these days to bring our girls out. Yes, we have plans for ever single day until new year!!

Today, we went to KL Tower.. Nope, not the tower itself, I don’t think our girls would appreciate KL Tower yet but we went to the Animal Zone at the base of KL Tower.. 

This is just a small place where they keep exotic / rare breed animals. Just a friendly reminder, this place is definitely not a stroller-friendly area. The floors are made of wood and rocks. Too bumpy and small to manouver a stroller (and we brought two! Huh!)

When I say exotic.. this is what I meant with exotic.. hairy spider..

Two headed turtle..

and tokay gecko!!!

Yup, I still remember the computer game called Gecko I played when I was a lot younger. Got really excited when I first saw this lizard.. Haha..

These is one of the smallest snake they have here.. there was also a huge phyton and albino phyton.. probably bigger than me!!

These tortoises are my girls favourite..

But nothing beats Bella’s obsession with chicken.. Hahahha..

Next to the Animal Zone is the Aquarium@KL Tower. Again, not a good idea with stroller because the place is quite congested (but we survived!)

This place is really dark. The lighting comes from the aquarium. Hence the poor quality pictures.

Getting two toddlers to smile for a camera is really difficult!!

It was a short trip but we had fun! And tomorrow, if it doesn’t rain, we will be by the beach!! InsyaAllah..

When a Rooster Crows..

Living in the city and having a kampung which is not so kampung.. Bella has never heard a rooster crows..

Hahaha..

During our trip to the Bird Park, she had her first encounter with chickens and roosters..

Here’s her first reaction when a rooster crows..

KL Bird Park

On Deepavali Day, both me and my husband were free and jobless for a day.. So, my husband decided to bring the children out to the Bird Park near Lake Garden.. Yay! I love family outing. It is so nice to get to bring the girls out and let them enjoy nature. Well, it's KL, where to find trees and birds and all? So, Bird Park is definitely a good idea..
We left after feeding Tasha for lunch, and let Bella has something light at home first..
We had lunch at Hornbill Restaurant outside the park.. good food but not pedas enough. Hahaha.. I think the made it to cater the tourist tastebud ;)
Bella was bored while waiting for the food.. and Tasha was ready to eat the menu.. After we had our lunch, off we go into the 'jungle in the city'..
B super excited seeing a peacock.. she actually chase it around until the peacock disappear in the bushes..
Kesian burung tu kena kejar dgn Bella..
Observing some exotic birds.. What excites her was the owl..
Bella really enjoy playing with the chics.. She insisted to hold them.. Mengamuk-ngamuk refused to come out from the show room…
She bugged her dad to lift her up until she finally get hold of the chic herself..
And she kissed it!!
Memang berani.. She loves the chic so much and not letting go… Hahaha.. poor chic!
And that's Tasha, doesn't really understand what she's looking at but giving us her best I'm-really-enjoying-this face.. I guess she's having fun looking at the birds flying around their big cage..
And Bella, kept wanting to touch the parrots.. No fear at all! Mommy yang takut dia kena patuk..
Anyway, we had fun at the Bird Park. Something different than our normal routines.. Should do this more often ;)

Dining Out..

I don’t know about you but my husband and I love to dine out sometimes.. from courting time until now. The different is the entourage. It’s getting bigger now.. We always bring Bella and and Tasha along.. It’s now table for four with 2 baby chairs! Haha..

And lately, our table always end up looking like this!!

A real mess!

Bella with insist to eat on her own (and feed the table, floor and herself..)

Tasha will throw anything we give to her on the floor (that’s the 8 month old normal development milestone! Haha)

OMG!!

We rarely able to finish our food (there’s always someone wants / throw / play with something or screaming to come out of their baby chair!) Hehe.. Mommy will have to kemas balik the table as normal as possible. I would have sweep the floor if I can!!! Hehe..

Time has changed, from romantic candlelight dinner for two to this chaos.

Despite all that, we really enjoy spending time with the children. They grew up so fast you can barely remember how was it when they were younger, and once you missed it, nothing can replace that moment. It won’t be long before they start to grow up and tell you not to hug and kiss them anymore. For now, we are just enjoying their company..
