Trip to Johor Premium Outlet (JPO)

On 8 March, we departed from SA on Sunday after isik minyak, isik angin tayar, siap kene patah balik rumah because tetinggal barang etc at almost 11am. Reached JPO about 1.30pm feeling hungreh. The parking was RM3 per entry. Nampak jer food court trus masuk isik perot dolu.

We explored some of the shops looking for something interesting to buy...nothing specific. If jumpe designer handbag yang berkenan with price within my budget is a bonus heheh. I ended up beli random stuff at Cotton on Kids yang takde kene mengene dengan baju/sluar.

Saw kedai Levis. Such a perfect timing because i need a good pair of jeans so badly. A really happy purchase i must say. By the time we were in Adidas, it was raining heavily. Biler reda sket, kaki plak dah saket and Qeeb pon dah malas nak jalan, we stopped by Starbucks to have coffee (yang minom me only lah). But the lighting was too dimmed dalam kedai tuh make me feel more sleepy. Jeeb wandering around other shops like Nike, G2000 etc.

Dark clouds before hujan turun

My experience at JPO was mmg panas terik but lepas tuh hujan so the heat dah cool down sket and no lalat (banyak orang comment kat foursquare ada banyak lalat). Plus i kinda liked that place sebab cantek. Interesting enough for me yang first time pegi. Dah passed 5pm baru we made a move to Iskandar area to find Ariana Iskandar Hotel. It is a new budget hotel and we paid only RM125 (plus tax). Jimat sket because we just need a place to stay overnight. The room memang comel, bukak2 pintu jer katil dah depan mata hahaha. Style hotel kat Japan. Door security was good, the room was clean and neat, free wifi throughout, washroom pon bersih, flat screen tv.

Malam tuh we had dinner at a cafe nearby. There were 2 options, Hot Kitchen or Aifa Cafe. We googled both and decided to try Aifa cafe instead. The cafe belongs to Ahmad Idham and he was there too time kitowang nak masuk. Since their operating hours is until 10pm and time tuh dah pukul 9.30 so banyak food dah abes. We settled with spaghetti bolognaise and carbonara. Sedap jugak but sayang it was served cold. Tapik dah lapar punyer pasal malas nak soh dorang panas kan.

Masing2 layan sketching. I is lonely.

The next morning we had simple breakfast at the hotel. Ada nasi lemak bungkus, cereal and roti with jams/kaya, coffee/tea. Kitowang jer yang ada pagi tuh hahaha. But i enjoyed it because the cafe area tuh macam house kitchen and everything is brand new +clean. Lepas check out we went straight to Legoland wheeeee!!! To be continued :)

Here comes the pizzas. We ordered hawaiian and meat lovers. The verdict? The sauce and toppings tak cukup umpph and burnt bottom.

Something for Qeeb, chicken fillet and fries. Kids get plastic set, but Qeeb almostttt being fussy insisted on green color instead of purple. Gahhh!

While we were there, Jeeb drew 2 cars for Qeeb. Too cute!

Trip to Port Dickson

We went to Port Dickson for a short vacay over the weekend. Raikan cinta gittuh kikiki. It was our 6th years of anniversary, Alhamdulillah. Memula singgah pantai near area kg Rusa...sungguh laa tak ingat nama pantai.

Trip to Port Dickson

Panas terik but banyak shades and of course gambar terang benderang cantek. Need no filter at all, the skies were blue and kacak! Kitowang lepak sat makan abc buang masa tunggu time nak check in kat hotel.

Because of the bridge over here, ramai yang datang amik gambar kat sini including wedding photographers. But it definitely need some serious repair sebab lubang besar2 and kayu pon cam rapuh. Bahaya for kids.

Trip to Port Dickson

We stayed at Avillion Admiral Cove Hotel. Subhanallah, i was mesmerized by the view everytime i looked out the window.

The room looked ok but overall i'm not really happy with the room. The curtain and cushions were smelly as if dah lama x cuci. Ada rambut lekat2 summore. Pipe kat sink washroom x pasang betol, air kluar cukup2 kat edge of the sink. So everytime nak basuh tangan, we were 'forced' to wash the sink as well sebab belaga2 tangan tekene the edge. Cabinet bawah sink berabuk so biler tgh temenung kat toilet tuh geram jer mata tgk habuk tebal. Base of toilet bowl pon not very clean sbb ada karat2 and mmg nampak tak cuci properly. The bed pon x brapa best sbb ada rasa spring. Hurmph it was unfortunate that i have so many complaints about this hotel.

Trip to Port Dickson

Petang tuh kitowang gi berendam kat swimming pool. Proper swimming attire rule tak di imposed it seems. I saw a lady joined her kids in the pool pakai jeans summore, lol! So that means if i'm wearing a tshirt no hal lettew. Qeeb had a good time here but me and Jeeb had the same issue when ada orang yang duduk situ achooom non-stop free style! Aiyooo the least you could do is cover your mouth and don't spread the germs lah weh. Unfortunately Jeeb did caught the bug start after maghrib. Haihhh sian giler. I hetchu inconsiderate people.

Malam tuh we had dinner at PD Waterfront. Ada a few tempat makan there like Papa Rich, Pak Hailam Kopitiam, McD, waffle, pizza. This area was buzzing with families teman anak main bubbles, fishing, glow in the dark thingy etc.

The only thing i enjoyed the most at Avillion Admiral Cove was the breakfast. It was good that i ate a lot.

Trip to Port Dickson

Complaint banyak kannn hahaha but i'm still thankful and syukur that we had a short trip here and spent time together. I love that Jeeb still sent me a beautiful bouquet of roses every year. However this time the delivery guy sent it to a wrong floor and the florist office kept calling me. I was i having a meeting so i ignored and reject the calls few times. Until a number yang i thought within the same building appear only i picked up the call. Orang tuh cakap ada flower delivery salah antar floor and it was actually addressed to me, so dia tanya which floor i am. So i waited for the delivery guy depan pintu lift. Hehehe mak inchik sukeeee!

Outing on 14 Feb 2015 - Paradigm Mall & Bangsar Village

14 Feb hari tuh, hang out ngan wawa and rina at Serai, Paradigm Mall. Lama giler x jumpe dorang dua especially rina, nak dekat 2 years kot. Too bad Zect and the rest of G6 members cannot make it. Cam Irma jauh bebeno mmg tak dapat ler join.

Lunch @ Serai, Paradigm Mall  Lunch @ Serai, Paradigm Mall

Borak lebey 2 jam jugak laaa catch up pasal life memasing. Bak kata wawa the next time we try to recall when was the last time we met, it was on vday...senang sket nak ingat hehe. Then gerak balik cecepat sbb promised Jeeb to be back by 3pm. Nak follow gi Cziplee kat Bangsar. Akan tetapi cita2 nak browse stationeries kat situ tak tercapai when Qeeb showed his tantrum. He said he wants air apple. So trus gi kedai sebelah Dip n' Dip skali takde juice kat situ. Then ingatkan sempat laa buy time while Jeeb carik barang because i already sat inside the cafe and pegang menu, cam segan pulak nak bangun and blah. Besides tingin gak nak makan choc crepe. Unfortunately Qeeb insisted to have his air apple. So i paid for the crepe yang belom siap lagik tuh and asked the waiter to reserve our table. So hangkut ler si Qeeb pegi the nearest kedai mamak tapik xde air yang dia nak and then jalan pegi ke 7eleven plak. Suruh dukung plak tuh! Perghhh menguji kesabaran yaamat!

Brownie Crepe @ Dip N Dip, Bangsar

Rasa cam nak beli satu fridge air kat 7e tuh just in case dia mengamok nak air lain pulak. Tak larat dah nak jalan balik. Alhamdulillah his mood went back to normal even though he took over my phone which usually is a big no-no. Luckily i brought my book along and i'm too tired to argue with him. When we had coffee afterwards at Bangsar Village, Qeeb chose to play with his car instead of my phone, phew! Oh btw I tried this new raspberry frappucino tapik alahai susahnyer nak abeskan. Note to myself, next time just stick to caramel macchiato if menggatai nak try new drink yang ada nama2 fruity okeh.
