Away on a Holiday

All our bags are packed
We're ready to go
We're standing here outside the door
We want to shout out just to say goodbye.. 
(nyanyi ikut lagu leaving on a jet plane)

So, we're going for a holiday..

See you guys in another week
hopefully with loads of pictures

Makan - Makan || Toastbox, IOI City Mall

Actually ni masa awal-awal IOI City Mall launching.. tak banyak lagi kedai bukak.. so, kitorang tak jalan banyak sangat.. More to nak cari makan jek.. since hari Jumaat kan? Tapi sebab satu floor tu penuh dengan tempat makan.. we were spoiled with choices..

End up kitorang just walk to a place yang stand out.. Toast Box masa ni sangat menyerlah sebab dia all-white.. terang sangat nampak.. Menarik giler!!

Dah tengok menu terus Q-up and order kat kaunter.. Yup! self-order.. tapi food akan dihantar kat meja.. Kitorang order toast.. mee siam special and curry laksa..

Tunggu tu agak lama jugak.. tengok meja lain pon still tunggu food.. after about like an eternity later.. air and toast sampai.. Nasib down sikit..

Tunggu lagi for the main dish.. tunggu punya tunggu punya tunggu.. tak sampai.. and the last draw adalah bila one of the staff boleh datang and tanya apa yang kitorang order? like what the $#%#?? Masa tu dah hangat dah.. sebab lunch hour is almost over and kitorang x mkan lagi..

So, we asked one of the waiter cakap kitorang nak cancel our order boleh tak? Lepas tu th ordere cashier yang ambik have the guts untuk datang and cakap "boleh.. tapi saya kena kira yang dah makan ni la!" dengan jeling lagi.. perggghhhh.. dia ingat kitorang nak makan free ape??!!

Kitorang pon habiskan lah apa yang tinggal.. since dah nak kena charge kan??  Tak lama lepas tu the cashier datang and bagi balance without even saying sorry or bagitahu apa yang dia charge..

That's it!! full stop! No more Toast Box after this.. sorry..

A Thousand Years

Was hooked to this song since it was first aired
Beautiful words..

(by : christina perri)

Heart beats fast
Colors and promises
How to be brave
How can I love when I'm afraid to fall
But watching you stand alone
All of my doubt
Suddenly goes away somehow

One step closer

I have died every day waiting for you
Darling don't be afraid, I have loved you 
For a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

Time stands still
Beauty in all she is
I will be brave
I will not let anything take away
What's standing in front of me
Every breath, every hour has come to this

One step closer

I have died every day waiting for you
Darling don't be afraid, I have loved you 
For a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed, I would find you
Time has brought, your heart to me
I have loved you
 For a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

One step closer
One step closer

I have died every day waiting for you
Darling don't be afraid, I have loved you 
For a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed, I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you 
For a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

Wedding || Adam & Atiqah

A wedding reception of a neighbour somewhere in Wardieburn Camp, Setapak. Made a promise to the groom's mother to be there.. So, by hook or by crook we must be there..

The thing we love most there is the cendol and the photobooth..

Allergy Test

Brought Adam to paeds for his allergy test.. He's supposed to go through the test ages ago.. there's always other things to do when I planned to bring him for the test..

Since, he's free from any fever and cough free.. So, I brought him to paed for his allergy test.. Decided on testing him with 9 samples..

After waiting for 30 minutes after the sample pricking, some of the sample shows reactions..

The doctor said Adam has quite a lot of things that he's allergic to.. such as 3 types of dust mites,  food mites, shrimp, a little bit with egg whites and egg yolk but the paed cannot decide whether he's allergic to cow's milk or not..

So, there you have.. the 1st round of Adam's allergies.. and oh yes.. he refuses to wash the ink and kept on showing to people his allergy test..

Wedding || Zira & Adam

A wedding reception of Dude's colleague.. An evening reception at the groom's family house.. this is a invite only reception.. and Dude was given an invitation with a plus 1.. No luck of bringing Adam along.. He was truly disapointed.. because surprisingly.. he loves weddings! I guess he loves more of the food part.. not the whole ceremony thingy..

Luckily Adam was not there.. the ceremony started late.. Adam won't last long.. And it was a warm night.. By the end of the reception, I just couldn't care less about how I look anymore.. The food by Felda D'Saji.. I can already guess on the menu..   

The downside of hosting a sit-in reception dinner at home is you couldn't cater the entertainment to all the guests because of the seating arrangements.. Our table was the ones that missed all the entertainment especially the videos from the whole family to the bride & groom..

We were among the first ones to leave the reception once they ended.. We had a long way back home.. somemore somebody is waiting for us very impatiently.. ehehehe..

"Zira & Adam.. Congratulations on your union.. May you live happily till the end of time "

Let It Go

Seriously.. when is this madness going to stop?
Adam & Sara keep on singing this song..
Feels like ages ago the release of this movie..

(by: Idina Menzel)

The snow glows white on the mountain tonight
Not a footprint to be seen
A kingdom of isolation,
And it looks like I'm the queen.

The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside
Couldn't keep it in, heaven knows I tried!

Don't let them in, don't let them see
Be the good girl you always have to be
Conceal, don't feel, don't let them know
Well, now they know!

Let it go, let it go
Can't hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go
Turn away and slam the door!

I don't care
What they're going to say
Let the storm rage on,
The cold never bothered me anyway!

It's funny how some distance
Makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me
Can't get to me at all!

It's time to see what I can do
To test the limits and break through
No right, no wrong, no rules for me I'm free!

Let it go, let it go
I am one with the wind and sky
Let it go, let it go
You'll never see me cry!

Here I stand
And here I'll stay
Let the storm rage on!

My power flurries through the air into the ground
My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around
And one thought crystallizes like an icy blast
I'm never going back,
The past is in the past!

Let it go, let it go
And I'll rise like the break of dawn
Let it go, let it go
That perfect girl is gone!

Here I stand
In the light of day
Let the storm rage on,
The cold never bothered me anyway!

Look at his cheeky smile..
Can you say no to that?

I know I can't..

I open a table

 After almost 10 years of working.. I finally managed to treat the whole family for a nice dinner.. I let them decide on where to eat..

Unanimously, Cozy Corner in Ampang Park won the voting.. that is always the place chosen for any family dinner.. it became a tradition..

In the end the bill came up with a number.. It was money well spent.. a nice dinner with the whole family together with the nephew live from Sheffield..

Thanx family for making the dinner happen and making me the person I am today!!

Dekat area Sungai Klah, BIL ajak lunch nasi bamboo.. katanya glamer.. sampai-sampai sana memang orang dah penuh.. takda meja kosong langsung.. so after tunggu punya tunggu, ada satu family bangun.. dapatlah kitorang satu meja panjang.. muat semua sekali.. 

Kat sini, kita pegi order nasi at the main kitchen.. ada pilihan nasi bamboo yang dikukus dan nasi panggang.. nasi-nasi ni comes together with sambal belacan dan ulam dan telur masin.. lauk kena beli kat kaunter lain.. bahagian luar bawah khemah.. ada macam-macam lauk.. ayam kampung.. pon adam macam-macam masakan.. ikan bakar.. and lauk-lauk kampung yang lain.. just pilih and bayar.. air dan dessert pon ada.. the same system.. order and bayar kat kaunter masing-masing..

Bila dah habis membeli, makan time.. Adam taknak makan nasi bamboo sebab kena balut dengan daun which he assume as sayur.. nasi panggang pon taknak sebab ada sambal kelapa.. but in the end dia makan jugak nasi bamboo dengan ayam kampung goreng..

For me, nasi tu biase je sebab I saw that nasi tu dikukus biasa dulu baru dia balut dalam daun pisang and masuk dalam buluh.. and stim lagi sekali.. ayam kampung tu pon biasa je.. tapi the suasana and the presentation of the food memang unik.. I do enjoy the food especially ayam kampung goreng.. panas-panas tu.. sedap betol..

adam makan nasi and ayam goreng

Tapi kalau nak makan sini memang kena datang awal especially on weekends.. orang sangat penuh and semua pon nak kena beratur.. kalau line panjang will cost you quite some time.. penat beratur je.. 
Apa-apa pon it was a good experience.. for all of us..

beratur panjang
