Qeeb at 15 months

My sweet cheeky notty Qeeb (ok that's a tongue twister for you!). Here are a few things that he does at 15 months that i wanna remember. 

Qeeb in Year 1
  1. He loves to hide his toys under the duvet & pillows. It really kills the pleasure of stretching when my kaki and tangan tersangkut kat toys.
  2. He doesn't like his feet covered with blanket. He wants his feet to have some air i guess. 
  3. Suker letak his binky dalam truck. 
  4. Dah pandai masukkan blocks but tantrum if tak boleh masuk. Patience little guy!
  5. If tengok Jeeb and I hug2 dia pon nak join wpon few seconds before continue to play. 
  6. He can flip books page by page. Gaya macam reading from cover to end. 
  7. A new found hobby, cabut parquet. Since it's an old house so banyak gila loose parquet and we had to selotep eventhough buruk. But Qeeb will test any other loose parquet...kene splinter baru tau!
  8. Like any other kids, he loves to naik kereta, pegang steering, main signal. Nih Tok Wan dia yang ajar.

    Qeeb in Year 1
     
  9. He loves to throw things including all the fragile stuff like my phone, ipad & camera with backhand and forehand style! Kadang2 duduk blakang dia pon tetiba kene baling ngan remote. Benda berat2 dia tolak jer sampai jatuh katil like laptop. And yes dia dah penah pecahkan 2 pinggan his Tok Mama -.-'
  10. Suker smack orang yang pakai specs especially. I do not know how to make him stop yet. I've tried few tactics, one of it was ajar dia caress manner...he will do it but after 3-4 times dia smack balik. 
  11. Dah pandai minom pakai straw wpon asik tersedak yeayyy!
  12. He's very manja with his helper, Sunah. Sooo manja, everytime nampak jer kelibat musti melalak suruh dukung. But when she's out of sight boleh jer duduk diam and main sorang2. 
  13. Since dah pandai slide turun from the bed, asik kejer nak turun main jer. Even in the dark ghhhrr! 
  14. He likes disco/ tehcno beat. Everytime he catches a beat, he will put his hands up in the air and shake his body. Kening plak dok angkat like "wassup" style. Abes sumer aunties and uncle cakap ada potensi pegi clubbing hahaha. Tok wan dia kata rosak! 
  15. He was nominated as mini joker in the family because he makes everyone in the family laugh with all the silly things he does. 
When i watch him sleeping....lots of wonderful feelings cannot be described. I love to nibble his ears and mamam his chubby cheek because when he's asleep jer boleh buat camtuh lama2. He also loves to wake up from his cot and took over our bed around 5am every morning. 

Qeeb in Year 1

Soo this is hell yeah!

I wish i can take picture of Qeeb when he was still a baby like Mila's Daydreams. It would be a totally memorable memoir. That mom-blogger became an epic, capture what she loves and then publish a book!

Lunch @ Marmalade Bangsar with Marvic

We meet up with Marvic and her boyfie at Marmalade, Bangsar last week. Shemah and BellaEnveeus planned to join us earlier but unable to make it because shemah's daughter, Allie was having fever and Bella herself was down with flu. Sob sob tak dapat jumpe jugak the last time i met them was October 2010 at HRC. Anyways I had aglio olio and Jeeb had turkey & mushroom quiche.

Lunch @ Marmalade Bangsar

Over the food, we borak2 lots of random things :) The bloggers (excluding Qeeb of course) Marvic, me and once in a blue moon blogger, bem69.

Lunch @ Marmalade Bangsar

And then Marvic handed me this! One of the reason we meet up is to pass this gifts because i was announced as the lucky winner for christmas giveaway contest at her blog. Weeee!

Lunch @ Marmalade Bangsar

There was a part where Qeeb got bored sitting in the babychair so he sat with us and started to pull things. And one of thing was a glass of coke! I yelped (can't help it because im a jumpy person), he was shocked and trus duduk kejung tak brani nak move an inch. Kelakar giler...nak marah pon tak jadik.

Lunch @ Marmalade Bangsar

Me with the pressie :) Oh ya i've mentioned before in my giveaway entry that the pouch was a handmade...by Marvic herself!

I also received this 2012 calendar via courier. Full of Emila Yusof's beautiful illustration with inspiring quotes.  Nak beli pon sangat worth it, only RM15 at her online shop My Little Shop. Thank you guys for the nice gifts!

My last visit to Marmalade was in 2009. Back then they use different wallpaper. And i ordered the same thing plak tuh! demmit kah kah kah! Can read the old entry here.

p.s: Note to self, never order mineral water when the waiter said "still mineral water" because it's freaking expensive. Baik beli juice :P

GLC Meetup @ KL City Walk

Thanks to soon expiring vouchers i bought at Groupon, i dragged bebudak GLC yang sudi temankan makan yogurt at 9Berries in KL City Walk. Since i do not know the exact location, and there is no specific car park...i was lost the minute i'm in jalan pinang. I saw all the connecting bridge, took a wrong turn, traffic jam, and cut the story short i parked illegally in front of BIMB, meet up with K.Fara and Shara in front of KL City Walk entrance and here we are at 9Berries :)

GLC @ 9Berries, KL City Walk
GLC @ 9Berries, KL City Walk  GLC @ 9Berries, KL City Walk
4 Cups of Frozen Yogurt + 1 Fresh Fruit / Chocolate Chip Topping + Unlimited Dry Toppings
  • Choose fresh fruit or chocolate chips for toppings.
  • Get unlimited dry toppings such as marshmallows, nuts, HERSHEY’S syrup and more.
  • Get additional RM5 cash voucher for next visit.
Looks fresh kan? And the taste is good indeed! There were 4 flavors original, strawberry, mango and blueberry.

GLC @ 9Berries, KL City Walk

Halfway through baru teringat about the dry toppings e.g cornflakes, cookies, koko krunch. Hampeh tuan kedai tak ingatkan. The original flavor was a bit masam and we should've request for Hershey's syrup but we forgot about this also. Leceh pulak asik nak kene mintak because mana nak ingat dalam list ada aper. Nonetheless, it was worth the money.

GLC @ 9Berries, KL City Walk

Three of us before leaving 9Berries. Gosh my hair and tired + bare face blerghhh! >.<

And then we stopped by Viva Mocha to have coffee and buat a little GLC project.

GLC @ Viva Mocha, KL City Walk

The place is quite small but interesting. 2nd floor interior is cozy enough to fit less than 20 pax and i love the chalkboard paint wall...in red!

GLC @ Viva Mocha, KL City Walk

When the barista started to brew our coffee downstairs, aaaahh the smell is like the most wonderful thing in the world. I ordered Cappucino btw. For me the coffee is considered thick so mmg sedap but tak patot sungguh dia bagi 1 sachet gula jer...mana cukup.

GLC @ Viva Mocha, KL City Walk

We continued our little project which is writing our new year's wish on piece of paper (pieces ekceli), then masukkan dalam envelope and sealed! These envelope to be opened somewhere near next new year's eve. But gambar tgh layan tulis takde pulok. And time nie I'm starting to feel nervous tingatkan keta yang parked illegal. Buatnyer kene saman or worst kene tarik T____T. Few pixies before nak balik with battery camera yang dah  blinking low hadehh....

GLC @ Viva Mocha, KL City Walk

Say byeeee! Then we walked to my car and glad it's still there safe and sound hehe. But penat jer rasa nervous and tak senang duduk.

GLC @ Viva Mocha, KL City Walk

On another note, I was a bit surprised to see KL City Walk is quite dull at night and sad to say kinda dead when they're still new. Some of the eateries look interesting but somehow there is no huge crowd. Hope the place become more happening and alive after this.

Sesampai jer sana kak fara and kak moji dah ada...but dorang dah nak gerak balik dah sbb aku sampai lambat naw :( but takpalah as long betembung.

GLC & baby Ilyas

Where's the baby? Tadaaaaaa...say hello to baby Ilyas. Such a encem boy!

GLC & baby Ilyas

Qeeb duduk dengan sopan & sabar with his dad next to baby Ilyas. But takot jugak dia terkam sebab geram.

GLC & baby Ilyas

Sempat tgk ustaz bertahniq (menyuap manisan (tamar/kurma) or ada jugak orang panggil 'belah mulut'. And then sapukan pulak emas (in this case pakai cincin) sbb orang dolu2 kata nanti anak pandai mengaji.

GLC & baby Ilyas

Mengetest balik skill dukung newborn. Aaaahh i forgot how ringan baby's weight hehehe. Leh carry pakai sebelah tangan wpon baby position baring and the other hand can buat 'peace' sign dgn kacangnye.

GLC & baby Ilyas

Happy Chinese New Year 2012

Ushering dragon year in 2012 w00t! Water dragon to be exact according to my google search. Anyway, I would like to wish everyone who celebrate, GONG XI FA CAI! Enjoy some dragon pixies i took at Sg. Wang.

Close up on the dragon.

CNY Dragon @ Sg Wang

I didn't get the chance to visit other malls to capture the CNY decor except Midvalley. I think they just use lantern theme...no dragon thingy.

CNY Dragon @ Sg Wang

And one pix of me at the bukit bintang t-junction. It's been a while jalan2 this area at night. I think that place is becoming to look like new york dah with all the huge ads sign everywhere. But i still hate the insecure feeling when i walked from Sg Wang entrance to the t-junction due to bad lighting.

Wedding Anniversary Dinner 2012

We're in the third year of marriage and we're literally 3 - Cheep, me and Qeeb. Before we went to dinner, we started off by taking photos with our bouquets macam nak pegi prompt night hahaha.

Wedding Anniversary  Wedding Anniversary

Cheep made an extra effort to carik tempat makan yang best. So his colleague recommended this place, Kokopelli Travellers Bistro and oh boy it was an awesome pick! When we reached there baru abes ujan so time nak masuk tuh rasa cam feeling ala2 step into cafe's kat overseas. The space exactly macam palette pallete but this one more homey.

Wedding Anniversary

The interior decor...nice and kinda romantic. Ada few other sections yang sangat bes amik gambar plus a shelf yang jual macam2 benda kiut + books but segan pulak nak amik gambar. Besides nak pi sana to enjoy dinner not jonah amik gambar hehe. And another special thing about this place is Kokopelli is a 100% halal bistro that does not serve alcohol :)

Wedding Anniversary

See that frame? Coincidentally the guy in that photo is Cheep's uncle, lol! The wall is full of artist's photos.

Wedding Anniversary

There are lovely oldies played during the meals. So yeahh it's very relaxing and purfect!

Wedding Anniversary

We had appetizer deep fried calamari yang sangat sedap tapik sikit. But ekceli the portion is just nice for me to enjoy my main dish without rasa bloated.

Wedding Anniversary

Cheep ordered beef stroganoff. Sedap ohhh and the gravy is very creamy mmg kene ngan tastebud dia.

Wedding Anniversary

While i ordered their signature dish, char koay tiaw hehehe. Any signature dish is a must try maaa, because it must be good. And i totally agree because the koay tiaw is sooo sedap. Kene cuba baru tau.

Wedding Anniversary

For drinks we had Traffic (combination of fresh apple, orange juice and monin syrup) and Come Fly with Me (pineapple, soda and orange kot) hahaha tak ingat dah. Traffic glass size besor, lucky the guy who took our order pre-empt siap2. Because i don't think i can finish it.

Wedding Anniversary  Wedding Anniversary
Wedding Anniversary  Wedding Anniversary

Time for dessert! This one quite tough to choose because all the dessert looked very appetizing. I chose banoffe pie and Cheep chose creme brulee. I think mine was better ^.^

Wedding Anniversary

While still om nom nom the dessert, i shared this mini album with Cheep. Heheh just to reminisce our years together. Btw, I heart this mini album to bits, hope wedoo buat another promo because i plan to make a collection of it.

Wedding Anniversary  Wedding Anniversary

Then it's time to balik because Qeeb's bedtime is our curfew lol! Hati tak senang biler pikir dia nak tido takde our scents kat sebelah.

Wedding Anniversary
Wedding Anniversary  Wedding Anniversary

I also got ourselves a cake to mark year 3. I purposely carik this type of plain decor cake with swirls design camnie, and tadaaa i found it at groupon (again :P) by littlecupcakes Gosh i'm a groupon sucker! I put some red jelly beans to buat heart shape...jadik dak? hahahaha. And the last minute DIY mini banner tulis pakai sharpie jer :P

Wedding Anniversary

Btw, it was a rainbow cake to be exact. Since i took 1kg so dapat 3 layers of color jer...kalo 2kg dapat lah 6 layers. It was a nice simple cake, yeayyy!

Wedding Anniversary

Qeeb enjoyed accompanying us to take some family photos and cutting the cake.

Wedding Anniversary
Wedding Anniversary  Wedding Anniversary

Alhamdulillah our little celebration went smoothly. I'm blessed to have such an honest, creative & devoted (and annoying :P) husband who means the world to me! Sentiasa beringat that marriage isn't always easy, but at the end of the day it's so much more fulfilling to have a best friend as a husband who supports you, loves you and who will go through life's ups and downs with you. We still have a loooong way to go and i doa for more happy years to come, insya Allah.
