2016 CLC Graduation



It seems time passed by so fast that our little Lucas is now graduating from kindergarten. They were practising on the gummy bear song form youtube. This year the theme is Olympics. Had a bit of drama by Lucas who refused to leave the house. Then refuse to step out of the car. Then refuse to go upstairs the performance area. All was well when Bro Chee Seng came down to encourage him to get up and ready. Later asked him why he did that, he said, I was just messing with you! 6 years old and he buat perangai like dat. Next time Ah Mei dunno what she will do.

Luckily Ah Mei was very cheerful and proceeded to the stage area with no issues. The performance was okay but there were so many parents tried to take pictures and videos that blocked our view, so couldn't take a good picture of them, as there were too far.

Quite tiring as we went for a quick dinner then came home to rest. Auntie Tay went to Ipoh for a wedding dinner and won't be back till Wednesday.





September and October happening

Lately the 2 younger kids doesn't want to come home to sleep. They would rather sleep at No.5. They still come back on the weekends to play their toys, last week paid the DBKL contractors to clear the garden, now it looks bare.
Many nonsense at home by the 2 captured by Auntie. October passed by unnoticed as well. Ah May started her ballet class and Lucas also enrolled to Teacher Yap tuition classes.Looks like going to be very very busy.

2016 Langkawi



Langkawi 2016






This year round we took the Malindo flight to Langkawi during the Hari Raya Haji holidays. Unfortunately our favorite restaurant Wan Thai would be closed. Haiya!....So we wanted to eat the chicken rice shop but they moved and by the time we found the new shop they were sold out.
So we tried the coffeeshop nearby at Aked Pokok Assam. Taste wise ok la, but nothing special. Then dinner time went to Water Garden at Pandak Maya, also nothing special but expensive lo.
Well the women shopped and shopped at both Teo Soon Huat and Pandak Maya.

We did our supplies shopping before checking in at Dayang Bay Svc Apartment again. The kids had their swim at the swimming pool. By the time they washed up after the pool, they were too tired and slept before dinner time.

Next day wanted to have breakfast at Red Tomato but were closed again....Went to try an English breakfast but service was so slow and food was expensive , tasted so so only. Then we went to visit the UnderWater World then lunch at  a Malay stall. Expensive again and not nice. Then went to have some dessert at a French crepe cafe MY French Factory, quite nice but expensive. Lastly dinner we ordered some meals from the stalls near the hotel. Nice and prices were reasonable .

Shopping at night as well as next day before leaving for the airport. We took Grabcar for both the journey to and from our house price was much less than the 200 bucks like last time. As usual we felt damn tired after the trip.

Bank Negara field trip

The 2 kids were bugging me to pay for the field trip organised by the school so I paid them and filled up the form. Lucas was a bit worried as the teacher didnt take his permission slip from his note book whereas Ah May was very insistent that the teacher take he r slip from the book.

July holidays

During the holidays we managed to sneak one weekend to Palace of the Golden Horses for a weekend stay. The 2 younger kids were happy to stay and play at the pool. These few weeks had been feeling under the weather as the kids went to have fun at Mines shopping centre while I stayed in the hotel to rest with Brandon after dinner at Yap Yin at Seri Kembangan.

In between visited Mr. DIY, Ikea and Maju homes to buy additional furniture and fittings for the house.

Then we finally moved house and I had a big operation to wrap and move the furniture. Had a big hooha with the transporter sourced from kaodim. useless transporter I had to think by myself how to dismantle the fridge door in order to shift the fridge out ,when arrived was with lots of bumps and dents. From 26 Jul onward we shifted and stayed at our new domain Jalan Puah Jaya 4. That weekend Debbie left for Hanoi with her Muar gang while I had to go for Brandons report card day. It was bad he nearly failed his English. I dunno what to say la.

We did the curtains, mosquito netting etc all done and over with by end of Jul.

Bentong Hot Springs trip

Recently found out from Ah Bee he went to Bentong for a short trip. It looked nice. So I too followed along. It seems they have a new site and app called www.GoBentong.com. It was quite informative and the best thing was they have a resort called Suria Hot Springs Resort. It was for a room with 2 queens size beds for only $120 , my guess is due to Ramadhan. So I quickly booked it for the weekend. Good thing was the Bentong Walk. Which essentially is a pasar malam every Saturday night. Well with the kids it wasn't very fun.

So we started after Nanik finished clean up the house and after Brandon gets back from BB. So we left on Sat at abt 130pm then reached Fantasy Valley Restaurant for lunch. Expensive but nice. Had some Musang King as well paid for the price but don't believe it is. This round I am very busy taking car of the kids couldn't take much pictures. After lunch checked in at the hotel after a short 20 min drive along the winding roads. Saw some nice scenery of the forest and river along the way. After checking Debbie had some rest before the kids went all out to have fun at the hots springs. It was quite nice but there were certain areas looked like lots of tissue paper debris floating in the water. Then we washed up for dinner at Bentong, we were quite late , had trouble looking for car park as well. Wanted to go to a restaurant but unfortunately was closed for the night. Then went to makan at the stalls instead. The char kuay tiao was good , as well as BKT. As for Ah Mei she collapsed in the car , so could'nt walk much just quickly ate , shopped and left.

The next morning , being kiasu for not being able to buy the taopok, we went as early as 730am got there bought all the stuff and had dim sum at SHL Restaurant, food was so so. Buat at least comfortable and not required to queue like mad. This round Brandon was so tired he decided to wait in the hotel room instead of following us to Bentong town for breakfast. Anyhow I met Heng Meng at the Pasar. After breakfast we went back at abt 9am. Had tapao some nasi lemak for Brandon. The price here is comparable to KL, so its not cheap. After that a last dip at the pool before leaving for lunch at Kg Bukit Tinggi, wanted to go Foon Lock but couldn't get to park so we settled for a coffee shop Nam Fong. Food here is not bad( Thai style kuey tiao soup and stew pork) and the roti bakar also nice. Best thing is got parking space and there were available table for us. While we waited for the ladies to finish shopping AGAIN at the tourist sites for some durian and other stuffs.

Finally reached home by 140pm, had a good rest and shopped at Jusco for groceries and had dinner at Sky Restaurant.


June 2016 Yay Im home

Was just discussing with a colleague , with a blink of an eye so many weeks just went past as I went to PNG for a month and we are back in KL again. I updated in the other blog Travel Log.

But in the month of June was the school holidays and we were busy to bring the kids out so I opted for a fun filled day of playgrounds(Titiwangsa in the morning then CosmoWorld at Berjaya Time Sq in the afternoon) hoping it will satisfy them. But was put down by Rachel mentioning it was NOT a holiday since it didn't involve staying in a hotel for the night. Haiyo this girl is very hard to satisfy.

Happy Birthday Lucas



Me and my gifts


VID_20160402_212503[1] from Pang on Vimeo.

This month is the April babies, the first to celebrate is Lucas and he specifically requested a Minion cake with one eye. The party was at my place and some of his cousins Ethan, Anton and Ashton came earlier for a swim so everyone swam before the big makan. But when night came and everyone was around, it was like a mad house as we had kids fighting for bicycle and toys namely Natalie was fighting with Lucas and Ashton.



We visited a new makan place "Yellow Brick Road" the kids would like as they had a play area, it was nice but expensive and long queues.

The young ones had learned how to make pizzas at CLC so they tried it out at home.


And some videos that was missed earlier

Yay! School holiday Legoland here we come

Diana had offered us her company's staff offer on Legoland tickets at RM58 instead of RM100 so we took it for the kids.But we bought it since last year and Debbie was especially busy we decided to sell it off much to Brandon's displeasure. Fortunately for Brandon we couldn't get anyone to buy them. So this holiday we decided to have a day trip and rested in Muar as a transit.

When we arrived , Brandon exclaimed it was his dream come true after his many pleas to go Legoland. The kids enjoyed themselves and bought some Lego sets. We dropped by JB to buy some banana cake. The car had some tyre alignment issues, the back was vibrating quite noisy. Finally reached Muar same time we arrived from KL yesterday.

The next day found that the tyres were "bengkak" since 4 years old so had to change the 4 which costs 1k. Finally came home by 3pm but not before stopping for lunch at DoDoDo Beef Noodles near Tangkak toll plaza. Tasty and will visit another time.

When we reached home and found that our backs were full of sunburn with red patches.
