new year

The Hijri new year had just begun and the other new year is coming soon. I just want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a good and eventful year ahead.

It's also a time to reflect on the past year, on what have been achieved so far and how we can improve further, on all aspects of our life. So, looking back - having started in January 2008 - this blog is almost 1 year old. Yeay!! Although, as you can see, the number of posts have constantly decreased month to month, I still feel that writing posts in this blog brings a lot of joy to myself primarily, and hopefully to others as well.

It just started as a small project for our little family to document the developments of the beautiful little baby that we welcomed into our life. I didn't want to take blogging too seriously, so while there's so much doom and gloom and seriousness hapening all around us in the world today, we'll just focus on our own little fun and games.

a prosperous year ahead, hopefully

Looking forward to the next year, there's so much to look forward to. The little baby is now an active toddler, shouting god-knows-what in her own language while doing all sort of stuff and trying to imitate the adults. Oh, it's gonna be a lot of fun and we hope we can share them all in the next year.

HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!!

So this year's Aidiladha was spent at Baba's kampung halaman in Terengganu. It was a long journey, the highlight of which of me poo-poo-ing right after we left the rest area. Umi and Baba had to endure 20 full minutes of 'fresh' smell inside the car before we found a suitable place to stop and change.

We had a stopover at Rumbia Resort Villa @ Paka where we regrouped with the others. The place is managed by AyahNgah's company, so we had a nice bungalow all to the seven of us. We were treated to a nice dinner, and woke up the next morning with another great meal for breakfast. Well, we expect no less since AyahNgah's company is primarily in F&B.

..wanting to jump right into the water..

..until Umi had to drag me away from there all crying

Next day, we went to KT to go sight-seeing (and some shopping as well!). The Monsoon Cup was going on at the same time, but we only watched the action from afar. Umi and Baba wasn't too interested, plus there was a large crowd to manouevre. There were also free rides on the bot penampang just for ppl to watch the sailing action from up close, which we passed. Our first stop.. Pasar Besar Kedai Payang!!

Umi, I want that one up there!

Pakcik, bagi diskaun sikit bole tak?

Next we went to the Taman Tamadun Islam, where there were small versions of many masjids from around the world. We didn't actually go in, but we spent some time near the Masjid Kristal and the nearby park where I had my lunch before everyone else.

adegan di perantauan by me.. sungguh syahdu (haha.. amik ayat from ibuhannah)

running around the place like nobody's business

After that it was time for the adults to have their lunch, so we made a stopover to a nearby restaurant. Check out the skillz that Baba has taught me:

angkat tangan!!

tutup mata!!

bukak mulut!!

The next day, it was Aidiladha. We had a nice meal after solat raya with sate, nasi himpit and nasi dagang all on the menu. After that, Baba and the men in the family went for the qurban and brought home seekor lembu kurban untuk dilapah (don't know how to translate this). It's all done at home kampung style...

The next day was our last day before we journey back to KL and resume our lives and the end of our holiday. Boo-hoo! The three of us spent some time in the morning at the beach. Yeaayyy beach!! It was the monsoon season and the waves was banging the shores. Baba wanted so much to dive into the water and body-surf, but the fear of being a front page news somehow held him back.

lovin' the beach

we'll miss you, Terengganu!

year end

smile for the world

Just for the sake of updating, cos it's been a while. This year end, Baba and Umi is so busy with work (and also non-work) things. After coming back from Terengganu, there were so many things to do at home and the office. The economy's not doing so well, but life must go on. Even though both Umi and Baba are working in banking, we're not so worried. Rezeki di tangan Allah...

However, I'm growing up as usual. More teeth popping up. More screaming around in the house. More extreme actions. More climbing here and there...

Sometimes I wonder how Nenek keeps up with me 5 days a week

People are finishing off their holidays. Next week (the Christmas week), we're going off for another family holiday in Rompin... can't wait for that!!

Nuffnang Friso Family Day Out @ kizsports OU

We had such fun at kizsports for the Nuffnang Friso Family Day Out the other day. Umi and Baba pun excited terlebih before we got there. Once we were there, I got a free t-shirt for the event. Even the smallest size was still too big for me, but that was fine, as long as I get to play and play and play!!

small kid, big shirt, huge playland

The kids were grouped according to the sticker colours, and I got the blue one. I think the blue ones are for cuter & nicer kids like me, cos they asked the other coloured-stickered-kids to have limbo rock kind of dance while we blue ones get to play in a nice little gym room. Hahah. No laa, I think it's mostly by their age group.

playing happily in the gym

Oh, my cousins were there as well! Umi got to bring one guest family, so cousin Sarah & Faiez came along. While cousin Aimar also got the invite due to being a gym class member at kizsports. So it was plenty of fun for all 4 of us little kids, together with all the other kids to play all over the place.

my 2 cousins was there to join in the fun

There were so many activities going on. There were colouring contest for kids, although I would be too artsy to join them. The kids are expected to colour inside the lines, while for me, I'm more of an abstract art kind of person, so there's no such thing as a line for me. So I didn't take part in them, but cousin Aimar did and produced a masterpiece!

Picasso beware!!

There were also talks by a nutritionist and another blogger. Umi and Baba took turns to join and listen. There were chances to win so many cool things like thumb drives. While yours truly continued to roam the playland!!

the slides were certainly the highlight of the playland! weeeee...!!

Lunch was provided for all, including the kids. But it's still Umi's yummy homemade food for me. They probably had a hard time feeding me, while my eyes was still fixed on the playland area.

discussing while makan time what we were going to play next

After the lunch, there was still time for a magic show from a magician who calls himself Mr. Banana. Hmmm, I wonder how he came up with that name.. Houdini himself would have been impressed. It was entertaining and some of the kids got to be involved as well.

some magic skillz on display

After everything ends, we get to the final, nail-biting prize-giving ceremony. We have been lucky with nuffnang before, and this time we got lucky as well with the consolation prize. It's no Disneyland trip, but the RM100 MPH voucher is still just as good. Congratulations to, they were deserved winners for their well-designed post.

yeay yeay dapat hadiah!! (pic from nuffnang blog)

There is still one prize up for grabs and here's hoping this will get me that 32' LCD TV for me to watch all those cartoons educational TV when I'm not on a day out. Thank you Nuffnang and Friso! It was a great and most generous event!

As usual, more pics can be found here.
