Makan - Makan || Ayers Rock Butcher & Grill, Wangsa Maju

We visited  this restaurant during one of my meat craving phase..I knew about this place from a read one of the blogs..Through a search i found out that it has opened a new branch in Wangsa Maju.. Took me quite some time to convince Mr. AZ that i need to go to this place to get their piece of meat..

The night of our visit, the branch hosted a function but they still accept walk-ins.. we had a nice table at a corner then was given the menu.. I, without thinking hard ordered my favourite part.. "T-bone, well done". Mr. AZ ordered their burger.. for little Adam?? well.. he already had his dinner..i just ordered him hot chocolate..

While we were enjoying our meal, something funny.. or should  say embarrassing. but i was proud at the same time.. there live band.performing that nite..while the band were playing a pop song (couldn't remember the song), little Adam, on top of his lung, recited zikir..something "Allahuakbar, alhamdulillah" over and over again.. The more we ask him to slow down his reciting.. the more louder he goes..Everybody was looking at us and smile.. Mr. AZ finishes his meal quickly and took little Adam out..then i took the turn to look after little Adam, for Mr. AZ to finish my T-bone..

The Verdict
Ambience - the lights shouldn't be dimmed.. it does affect my mood and appetite..nice job with the live band thing.. during our visit, the place was too crowded with people from the function..
Food - for me, the meat was like whooahhhh.. thick and juicy.. i don't like the salad accompanying it.. and i feel that the whole plate was bland.. there's something missing but can't make out the missing thing..
Price - i guess it's on the expensive side.. the t-bone steak priced more than the one's served in Victoria Station..but it was thicker..
Service - good because we were served by the owner..

Sheryl Crow || Real Gone

Little Adam loves this clip very much because he's so into Cars the Movie.. but was not interested at all with  Cars 2.. he loves Lightning McQueen and Mater.. and he can named most of the characters in Cars the movie.. So most of the time we spent together was watching Cars the Movie over and over again.. he can repeat all the dialogue..

p/s: and now the father bought him a Lightning McQueen bag for him to go to school.. oooohh.. and yeah.. we're planning to sent him to playschool to let him mingle but still couldn't decided on the place to sent..

A Birthday Party

This is little Adam's only birthday party invite for the year.. an invitation from Mr. AZ's friend.. wouldn't want to missed it since we couldn't make it last year.. I was the one excited with the party.. searching for little Adam's t-shirt according to the party theme.. the theme was Upin & Ipin.. Seriously.. i thought it was an easy search.. but there were no Upin & Ipin t-shirt could be found at my office flea market.. so I just decided that little Adam would wear any t-shirt from his collection..

We already bought the birthday girl her presents earlier.. the morning of the party, Mr. AZ decided to search for Upin & Ipin theme t-shirt for the last time (last kopek laa kononya).. he's afraid that little Adam would feel left out during the party for not wearing according to the theme.. eheheheh..  Finally jumpa la jugak t-shirt Upin & Ipin.. I wash the t-shirt and fan dried and also ironed the t-shirt just before going out for the party..

Arriving at the venue.. which is little Adam most favourite place in the world.. Pizza Hut.. because he loves to eat pizza & mushroom soup..he was the only one wearing Upin & Ipin themed shirt.. even the birthday girl and family was out of the theme.. heheheeh.. so i guess the theme was for the venue since most of the balloons were of Upin & Ipin.. little Adam had a great time.. eating pizza and mushroom soup all he wants..

After that we went back with full stomach and went to lalaland secara berjemaah.. eheheheh

Final Holiday of the Year 2011

Since dah jalan-jalan utara ni.. kitorang holiday laaa dekat Penang.. the nearest.. Initially plan semalam je.. lepas tu boleh pulak nak extend another nite.. tapi at a different hotel..

After wedding.. kitorang terus cross the bridge and head to Cititel Penang.. why Cititel? it is close to Nasi Kandar Yasmeen (our favourite Nasi Kandar spot) and Sup Hameed.. both of the spot is just couple of steps je dari Cititel.. tu yang best tu..

I planned to eat lotsa things.. nak pegi Padang Kota (terpaksa ditch this plan sebab keluar from hotel dah lambat and Mr. AZ prefers Gurney Drive).. Dapatla makan Char Kueytiaw.. even little Adam pon makan Char KueyTiaw.. a bit pedas tapi die suka.. Habis 2 gelas milo ais dia sorang bantai..Mr. AZ was happy with his Rojak Techno.. where the server dance while preparing your rojak.. funny this man.. then balik hotel.. i don't know why.. tapi terase penat sangat.. mata dah macam tak boleh bukak.. so sampai hotel teros membuta.. around 10, Mr. AZ woke me to go to Sup Hameed.. but i just couldn't make it.. and let both the boys go.. Kiranya plan asal nak makan macam2 tak tercapai!
Next morning we had our breakfast at the hotel.. the coffee house too small and crammed.. luckily we went down early.. dapatla jugak tempat.. if not we have to queue for quite some time..the breakfast spread was so-so.. then we toured the hotel.. when for their indoor swimming pool..but not comfortable with the environment.. stuffy.. little Adam pon taknak swim.. so naik atas and dia swim dalam bath tub..

Close to 12 kitorang pon get ready to check out.. after arrangements at the front desk.. we went to have our favourite Nasi Kandar.. from Yasmeen we saw the outrageously long line at Nasi Kandar Line Clear.. but i still prefer Yasmeen..

Then off we went to Batu Feringghi to check in at another hotel.. Bayview Batu Feringghi. our room wag HUGE!! tapi i didn't enjoy the stay much.. I was down with flu.. tapi still drag myself to the beach and kids club with little Adam.. kesian dia.. his 1st vacation that he enjoy.. but mama down with flu pulak.. Nasib baik dia tanak swimm.. kalau tidak lagi sakit la mama.. Most of our time spend at Kids club tak pon just lounging at the beach.. malam tu just makan ala kadar.. and Mr. AZ went to the Batu Feringghi pasar malam by himself sebab little Adam tido awal malam tu..
The next day went by like a lightning.. after breakfast at the hotel..then it was time to check-out.. we took the ferry out of the island.. little Adam enjoyed the ride.. while me was knocked down by the Paracetamol i took before we left the hotel..

Sorry Adam.. mama demam pulak time holiday.. next time i promise to be very healthy to layan you.. until now little Adam kept on saying "Penang" whenever he saw building similar to Cititel Penang and  "hotel" whenever he feels as if he was in a hotel lobby.. kesian anak mama..

Adam & Shapes

The other day as I was playing bejeweled, little Adam came and sit on my lap..

Little Adam : Mama.. Circow  * circle (while pointing at the circle shape on my bejeweled board)
Me : Yup.. Clever boy!
Little Adam : Mama.. Diamond (while pointing at the diamond shape on my bejeweled board)
Me : Clever boy!
Little Adam : Triangle (while pointing at the triangle shape on my bejeweled board)
Me : Betol!
Little Adam : Redtangle * Rectangle (while pointing at the red rectangle shape on my bejeweled board
Me : Pandai nyer anak mama ni..
Little Adam : Mama.. Greentangle (while pointing at the green pentagon shape on my bejeweled board
Me : Bukanlaa.. manade greentangle.. its Pentagon..
Little Adam : No.. bukanlaaa.. its the greentangle..

After 2 or 3 times failed attempts to correct him.. i just let it be.. nanti-nanti mama ajar lagi ok Adam?? no wonder laa mama dengar you pronounce rectangle as redtangle.. theres a reason.. ingatkan thats what you heard.. ehehehehe..

These days suka la sangat lawan cakap.. mesti mula ayat dengan "eh..nooooo!! bukanla..."

My little 'big'boy

He's another year older.. And he sure is more wiser.. A lot of achievement this year.. Loves Lihtning Mcqueen, Upin Ipin, harimau Malaya home jersey, Jake & the Neverland Pirates and of course football.. Talks alot but only with people he's comfortable with..  Lots of vocabulary that i didn't expect from him.. Good one though..What else eh??!! Thats all for now i guess..

For this year we celebrate the 14 of November by going out having a cake.. Seriously a piece of cake shared by 3 of us..

After a very long silence

Ehehhe..lamenye takde entry langsung.. Thanks to my fluctuating mood.. Sgt menggila malas kali ni... Kire byk lah happenings sepanjang sunyi sepi ni.. Tp just catch-up with the latest things je la...

The latest adalah Harimau Muda.. They are the new 'in' thing in Malaysia.. Cube la tanye budak2 skang.. Nak jadi ape bile besar? I bet you guys, adelah dalam 3-5 org budak akan jawab main bola.. Same with my little adam.. Sgt obses dgn home jersey harimau malaya.. Sampai kena beli 1 lg spare.. Sbb almost every day nak pakai jersey tu.. Visiting jersey langsung tak pandang.. at one point.. sampai kene cakap masuk dalam longkang laaa.. basah laaa.. naik muak dah tgk dier pakai jersey tuh.. nak tido pon pakai.. the father seronokla sbb anak dier share the same passion.. siap bangge pakai jersey sama2.. boleh??!! and sometimes he would shout "Harimau Maleya"..
