My Birthday Dinner 2011

Birthday girl get to choose where to eat bak kater my in-laws. Huhuhu besnyer but i do not want menyusahkan sumer by driving jauh2 because it's xmas eve sure jam, and i oso do not want the bills buat bijik mata terbeliak. So it's quite tough to choose tempat makan yang dekat, ada local+western dish with reasonable price and family friendly environment. Finally I settled with Monrods at Laman Seri Shah Alam after baca some reviews. Sib baik dapat buat reservation because if walk-in with 10pax sure susah nak carik tempat.

We had mushroom chicken chop, nasi ayam, fish & chip, samosa, pisang rebus, cocktails, sausages and kerabu mangga. Nak try their signature dish Nasi Ayam di Panggang tapik habes pulak so i had Nasi Ayam di Madu instead. The ayam quite besar but i'm not a fan of isik tebal so susah jugak nak abeskan and the kuah tak cukup mengancam. Right pix is tutti fruity blended (recommended) and apple sodaz.

My Birthday 2011

Nak siapkan dengan pantas my birthday celebration for this year before tukaq taun 2012. Ish backlogged lagik. This year i got to celebrate with everyone in the family so yeayyy! First, I went out on a date with Cheep. We watched MI4-Ghost Protocol at GSC OU. The movie was great, Tom Cruise mmg sediakala hebat, fight scene best but me no likey Paula Patton (as Jane). Tak habes2 buat muka stress and painful expression kat almost all scenes. Then lepas abes movie, we went to check out OU 'new' old wing sampai kelaparan tapik asik nak tersinggah macam2 kedai. Biler dah tahap kebuloq baru gi carik tempat makan. I chose to have penang food because dalam kepala dah terbayang laksa and char koay tiaw. So we checked in at Simply Penang. Ordered additional dishes like popiah basah and lorbak. Sedap ohhh lorbak tuh!

Countdown to 2012

2 more days to 2012. I'm feeling so festive and i do not want it to end! I loooove december so much. My birthday falls in december but it's not just that. Takleh nak describe the jolly feeling. Maybe because it's around xmas time so all the colorful decor makes me happy. Or maybe cuti sekolah and ramai yang amik cuti so the road is clear and takde jam langsung! Banyak lagik other things that contribute to rasa happy.

But i cannot shake the nervous feeling knowing what's waiting for me on the first week of January itself. Soooo many deadlines and i'm not even halfway done. So yeah...i'm worry about my work, kpi and confirmation. Anyhoo, hope 2012 dipermudahkan urusan dan murah rezeki. 


I wanna wrap up my 2011 wishlist/checklist and syukur with what i have. Rupa2 nyer 2010 takde list cisss...takleh nak compare! Sebab baca balik yang 2009 bes jugak because mana nak ingat dolu mengidam and frust sbb aper.
  1. Change job. This year i managed to tukar kejer wpon 3 kali.
  2. Less traffic stress. I love my new office area because no kl traffic nightmare pagi petang. Eventho for temporary period because we'll be moving back to KL T___T but i'm still thankful.
  3. Parking luxury. Cheap indoor parking rate. With the car condition yang bocor & betampal ngan selotep i'm thankful dapat park dlm building with ample parking space. 
  4. Children. Alhamdulillah my son, Qeeb membesar dengan sehat dan kuat. He is now 1yo+. There's still part of me yang okwed nak mention "my son.../ anak i...." biler beborak. Kalo beborak ngan yang dah kenal senang because i prefer to mention his name instead of kata ganti. Tahpapentah. 
  5. Less Game. I managed to kurangkan main game. Except tiny towers...itupon biler tingat. The fact is tak de masa pon because i treasure my sleep rather than bersengkang mata to level up. 
  6. Vacation. This year mmg takde vacation. Timing slalu tak kene. We even missed family vacation to Bali because Jeeb busy with work and i just started working in a new company....sad :(
  7. New car. Was thinking to get a new car because driving pleasure dah kurang :P My bad tak maintain elok2. Siap pegi test drive keta idaman but niat terbantot because if nak tolak current car market rate makin drop, i have to top up the settlement and kene bayar deposit. Erghhh nanti2 lah. 
  8. Move out. We are still not seriously looking for a house. Kan senang kalo ada area yang dah berkenan, rumah cantik, dapat pulak harga yang affordable trus boleh beli. Nih tak, nak kene search harga rumah yang 'logic' and biler dah jumpe only to find out that the location is like humang-aih-jauhnye-drive-sejam-lebey-pon-x-sampai.
  9. Lose weight. Errrr slalu goyah biler nampak food sedap and biler orang ajak makan. 
  10. 365 project. Take a photo a day and upload it to my mobile blog because i wanna be able to look back at any day the year and recall what i did. Tak kesampaian tang nak upload tiap2 hari tuh....but my mblog entries for this year is 219 yo! w00t! 
  11. Blogging. The best way to document moments and thoughts. Entries this year agak dropped compared to last year. I should target to post early and post often to avoid backlogged because nanti rasa overwhelmed trus malas nak buat. 
Also for next year, i wish for a good health, exercise more, family bonding, spend more domestic thingy, pro-active and focus time kejer, curik masa dating ngan Jeeb, explore educational games with Qeeb, rajin masak *cough*, be more positive towards everything, etc. Pendek kata sumer yang elok2 dan yang baik2 lah. Also smoga our country kekal aman damai.

Marilah kiter sama2 berdoa, insya Allah. 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Sweet Tooth Paradise in KLCC

We explored some new shops in KLCC mostly the snacking area. The first one was Isetan Food Market. I uploaded some pix in mobile blog Part I and Part II. Then we went to check out Garrett Popcorn, Candylicious and Bruno Gelato. They were all in the same row attracting the sweet tooth to drool.


KLCC Candylicious

There was a signboard saying the candies were rather shy to take photo but being kiasu i cannot help myself! It's like a candyland in there...it's too colorful not to take photos. More candy shots at mobile blog if you wanna see what kind of candies and merchandise they sell. Taken during my earlier trip with the GLC - 
candy i, candy ii, candy iii, candy iv (hohoho over sampai 5 entries). Check out the jellybeans....tons and bebalang2 of it! Huarghhhh!


KLCC Candylicious

And the lollies from size s to XL!



KLCC Candylicious


Here comes the most talkabout popcorn that made both of us very curious dgn kesedapannyer-Garret popcorn from Chicago. The price? RM16 (small), RM21 (medium), RM26 (large) and ada range yang cecah ratus koh koh..i think dat one comes with box kot. We queued and bought large size Caramel Crisp and homaigosh sedap gila. I have to make sure ada air kosong dalam tangan though sbb manis gila. If nak compare ngan popcorn kat TGV/ GSC tuh...you can see 60% color putih and the caramel celah2 gituh jer...if you eat this, it's like 100% salut ngan caramel. Osemness!

KLCC Garret Popcorn
sukenye Qeeb...bukan leh makan pon thehehe

Not to forget the xmas decor which is one of my routine every year to amik gambar heheh.


KLCC Xmas Decor 2011


For me xmas decor in KLCC so far tak penah achieve level wowowow compared to pavillion, one utama and the curve. Maybe it's because they have limited horizontal space. If vertically they have all the height which i think that's the reason why they use the same tallest xmas tree for many years in a row hahaha. Glad that tree is nowhere to be found this year.

Irina's 2yo Birthday

A couple of weeks ago, kak liza threw a birthday party celebration for Irina at Kiz Sports & Gym at Empire Shopping Gallery. Baru tau that 2nd floor banyak offer edutainment for kids like baking class, dance space, art class, plaster house etc. Very very interesting...cuma sediakan duit jer huhu.

Irina's 2yo Birthday @ Kidz Sports & Gym

First we have to register at the counter under irina's birthday party. Qeeb got himself a sticker with his name on and tickets for all of us. Have to remember bawak socks because one of the main rules is that socks must be worn by both adults and children in the playland at all times. But if takde socks, they do sell it at RM5.90.

Irina's 2yo Birthday @ Kidz Sports & Gym

We went straight for breakfast because it was only 11am at that time. Ada nasi lemak, roti jala, sandwiches, nuggets, karipap, kuih koci, cocktail sausage. All of us duduk cam kat skolah tadika with mini tables and chairs and yeah i feel like a giant because it only covers like erm 60% of my butt.

After makan we can straightaway main in the playland. For kids under 2yo boleh main 2 sections if dah beso can play in the main playland. So we took Qeeb for a warm up...kasik naik aeroplane dolu hehe.

Irina's 2yo Birthday @ Kidz Sports & Gym

Then baru we threw him in the pool of balls. He was so excited picking balls and tendang2 kaki sambil duduk. But not aggressive enough to swim and crawling dalam tuh hahaha. Malas nak tolak bola ler tuh.

Irina's 2yo Birthday @ Kidz Sports & Gym

Of course we also wanted to join the fun! Just sitting in there pon dah rasa happy hahaha. But don't worry no balls were harmed when this photos were taken...because i've checked :P all balls yang terduduk tuh automatically back to normal shape. And then there were few other sections we explored. Mmg Qeeb pueh main lah with all the bikes and slides.

Trip to KL Bird Park

Our first time to KL Bird Park weeee!!! When we arrived, there was a long car queue but we were lucky dapat jugak masuk car park eventho we had to pusing 4 kali baru dpt parking space. I would rather go merry-go-round inside the parking area rather than stucked behind the queues trying to get inside the car park not knowing the real reason that caused the jam was tourist bus parked sukahati blocking the road.

The entrance fees are RM20 for adult and RM10 for kids. If ada Jcard, plusmiles, metrojaya or realrewards card, tix price discounted to RM15. But i got better offer at everyday.com.my with 50% off we only spent RM20 for 2 tickets.Since Khairan joined us at last minute, we've paid his tix at normal price (kid).

Qeeb ready to start his 'serious' adventure.

There was a bird ready with surveillance camera when we entered the bird park area hehe. But fret not, i'm equipped with tickets for everyone!

A peacock parading above our head. Memang dasar attention seeker peacock nie hahaha :P But gotta admit peacock has beautiful tail.

These birds are so fluffy and cute

...colorful and clean

Pelican is a large water bird with a large throat pouch. If tengok dari jauh rasa cam decor yg orang slalu letak kat pond or pelican shape boat ride kat tasik :P I have to see upclose baru percaya it's a real bird! Biler dia terbang agak skeri lah because kang beak sampai dolu naya jer hahaha.

KL Bird Park 2011

Qeeb busy keeping an eye on the pelican to ensure mommy is safe to pose :)

KL Bird Park 2011

Qeeb muka cengang tgk birds everywhere. Slalu dengar birds chirping every morning from our room but now he got to see many types of bird with sounds.

KL Bird Park 2011

Where do we go next? To the Flamingo terrace and pond! I wish i have a babywearing at that time. Since berangan jer ada...mmg kitowang eksesais kaw2 that day gilir2 pegang. Stroller helps a lot but there are times it was easier to carry Qeeb so we can show him the surrounding.

KL Bird Park 2011   KL Bird Park 2011

At the flamingo pond with some sleeping flamingos i believe. Still kagum tang  mana lah yang comfortable kalo tido gaya camnie.

KL Bird Park 2011

Along the way banyak jumpe peacock. Ada yang kembang ada yang relax but mostly sumer bising hehe. "Do you know the male is called a peacock, the female a peahen, and the babies peachicks. So actually we're supposed to call them peafowl."

KL Bird Park 2011

And this is my favourite of all - woodsy owl! Sangat2 cute occay....trus cair tgk wpon tido je keje dia. I feel like having this owl as a pet can kaa?

KL Bird Park 2011

Right after this photo was taken, when i took 2 steps in front there were massive shotgun waterfall from above. Fuhhhh sib baik tak kene the birds cherryberry or else mmg i called it off and paksa sumer orang balik.

KL Bird Park 2011

More peacock standing proud on the tree branch. We also spotted a bright contrast color bird below the bridge wandering around solo. Color bulu dia macam kene simbah cat!

We exit through the Hornbill souvenir shop and took a photo in front of this mural painting. After i uploaded this pix at FB, wawa pointed out our color baju matched ngan birds painting kat blakang hehe. Baru pasan kebetolan sama ler pulak ;)

KL Bird Park 2011

Hope Qeeb enjoyed the walk as much as we did :)

Notakaki: According to his Tok Mama, after the bird park trip she put on Rio the movie hoping he can relate and appreciate the movie but Qeeb malas nak tgk. Lol!
