Hedhir's Wedding || Dewan Merak Kayangan FELDA

He's my cousin's eldest son.. and we're quite close during our childhood days.. but we grew apart as we get older..but we do get in touch especially during all those family gathering.. quite happy for his marriage to the love of his life..

The Reception was held at the Dewan Merak Kayangan, Jalan Semarak..Buffet style and a roasted lamb spread complete with salad.. I just took the lamb and salad.. I just can guess FELDA's malay wedding menu's..

It was great to see all the family members gathering after a long time..

"HEDHIR & wife (sorry..didn't get to catch your name).. Happy together life ahead!! The next thing to do is getting your first baby!! heeeee.."

Penang Holiday || Day 2

We started early the 2nd day to catch the buffet breakfast at the hotel and to continue with our usual roti pisang and ice-cream at Telok Bahang.. We have to cross the road to get to the other side of the hotel for the and the husband brought Adam along for his first buffet breakfast experience.. we chose the table outside so we can get the morning sea breeze.. but the pool attracted Adam more than the wide spread of food that he can eat.. i tried to feed him porridge, scramble egg, bread and fruits plus full cream milk and soya milk.. but that couldn't take his attention away from the blue pool water..

Hotel's Buffet Breakfast

After the breakfast and Adam's poo-poo experience at the dining table..we went back to the hotel room to join the others for the roti pisang breakfast..from the hotel, we passed by the new Hard Rock Hotel..unfortunately, i didn't bring the camera along..too bad..

Waeis with the Christmas tree at the hotel lobby

The next thing to do after the BIG breakfast was swimming and other activities at the hotel.. off we went to the was crowded.. Adam and Ilman was the ones who enjoyed the swim while the rest just settle at the game room playing pool and wii.. Later, it gets quite i decided to take Adam out of the pool.. thanks to the warm pool towel that it warmed Adam's shivering body.. Then me and the husband took him for a walk at the beach.. there he saw the para-sail, jet-ski, horsie, and banana boat.. and he didn't gave any reaction when we put his foot touching the sand..he gave us the nothingness look..

Adam's first experience on the beach sand

Then we join the rest of the gang at the game room..there Adam fell asleep..and i brought him back to the hotel room..Soon after.. we checked out..

My brother and the family stayed for another nite at a city hotel to catch the train to Penang Hill while the rest of us went back to KL.. but before that we made a pit stop at Penang Road for our usual Nasi Kandar treat at Yasmeen and browsing at Sam's Batik House nearby..

The journey back was quite tiring as the husband was so sleepy because of the Nasi Kandar thing and we had to stop ALOT for his quick nap.. We ended arriving in KL at 12 midnite.. it took almost 9 hours to reach KL from Penang.. heeee.. i think Adam was the one who got bored the most of the journey home..

Next time we had to have the Nasi Kandar on the first day of the trip..either that or we stayed longer there since we missed the Gurney Drive Makansutra.. Will have to compensate on the next Penang Makansutra trip..

Penang Holiday || Day 1

We started the journey around 8 in the morning after Adam's breakfast and all.. My brother left for Penang earlier since he got something to do and my sister left the night before.. The journey was okay.. smooth.. even Adam was behaving in his car seat.. he sang and everything.. The first stop was my hometown.. went to visit my grandmother, my aunt and another aunt who lost her house to a fire..

Adam slept all through the journey

Then off we go to meet my sister at Sungai Dua for a mee udang treat.. it is said that the mee udang was the best so far.. there we can choose our prawn to be served together with the noodle.. I can't remember the name of the restaurant but from the signboard, it shows that TV3's JJCM team have been there.. We ordered to bowl of mee udang with loads of prawn and 2 plates of nasi goreng ketam.. sorry no picture of the food as we were hungry cause the time has past 2 p.m. Adam enjoy the restaurant's water feature that act as a cooler.. they recycle the water taken from a creek nearby to cool the roof of the restaurant.. The total bill came up to around rm100 for 7 people.. affordable and worth it..

After that we rushed to enter the island since my brother and family have been waiting for us to checked-in..the journey from Sungai Dua to Batu Ferringhi took quite a while with the usual traffic jam.. We stayed at Holiday Inn-Tower in Batu Ferringhi.. we got a good price for the rooms plus breakfast since it's the peak season..

On the bridge

The room was super luxurious.. Adam seems excited by the room.. he sang and laugh.. i think he loves the smell of the hotel room.. heee.. just like his mama..

After maghrib, we went to a nearby restaurant to enjoy the seafood there.. we have to find an alternative for Telok Tempoyak since the concierge at the hotel informed us of the massive jam in the town area for us to cross to the other side of the islan to Bayan Lepas.. the food was so-so.. but we enjoyed watching people doing the para-sailing and jet-skiing.. After that..we roamed through the night market along the Batu Ferringhi street.. me and the husband shopped for dvd's.. Adam was not in the picture cause it was late and the parents brought him back to the hotel room..

Last night, me and the husband watch Twilight showing in the TV.. I know I'm slow in watching movies.. Since we have Adam, i don't have the heart to leave him during our off day.. I love to watch all his antics and tantrums.. If possible i don't want to miss a thing.. since i missed alot during working days..

ok back to the Twilight movie.. it was an interesting movie.. story of love and vampire.. how the vampire resist a human blood.. and i get to learnt that vampire too can be a vegetarian (haa!) and how love conquers all.. and.. a family doesn't mean that you have to be blood related.. lastly.. the view from the top of a giant tree is breathtaking..

so now i just can't wait for the next installment of twilight : new moon to be shown in ASTRO..

Morning Traffic

Today i punch myself in at the office a bit late..exactly 8.06 am (sangatla lambat kan??!)..thanx to an accident at MRR2.. between a trailer and a car (i guess!) my view was blocked by a lorry.. at one of the hilly area..the morning drizzle didn't help with the traffic that much..

And here i would like to congratulate to my one and only niece with the message "You remain the princess in the family! Congrats! The title is still yours"

Our Weekend

Since Adam's toys are now scattered around the house, me and the husband decided to buy a box or some sort of a chest to put his toys.. so we went to the most interesting home furnishing store (for me)..IKEA!!..i sooo love this place.. i can spend the whole day in the store without realising it..

So, after the husband's weekly tennis..we headed to IKEA..quite a traffic near ttdi..but smooth flowing from thereafter.. 1st we headed to Marche in Curve for our lunch..i packed Adam's porridge to be eaten together with us.. Marche have gone through quite a refurbishment from my last visit..the check-out counter now is at the back..and no more pizza to order (i've been looking forward for that)..we ordered rosti with cheese, baked potato & fettucine alfredo and a glass of freshly squeeze lemon juice.. and now i'm crazy for rosti.. need to buy US potato..

Next..went back to Ikea for the toybox/ toychest hunt.. instead of searching for his toybox, Adam prefers to play in the box with a ladle..such a cutie..we settle for a tortoise laundry net for his toy and a crocodile..
note to self : need to bring out Adam as often as we could because he reacts strangely to crowded environment..need to make him feel comfortable..

One For The Album

I will always remember his facial expressions.. This are the current favourites.. I think the 1st expression is due to teething.. When i say 'no' to the expression he'll do it more frequently..

This is Adam asleep just now in the car after our usual breakfast out..when he sleeps.. nothing would make him wakes up..the hard part was putting him to sleep..with tossing and turning..and the drama part..
