First Medal of the Year!

It feels soo good to run again after resting myself for few months.. even though, I walked more than run. Hahaha..

Participated in CXP Run 2015 organized by Taylor College on 19/4/15, which was held at SS15 Subang Jaya.

We were lucky that the Run started late as we were caught in half an hour jammed! It was early in the morning ok! Yet it was jammed?! Well, there was an accident on Federal Highway. Hmmm...

Nyway, most of the runners were among the college student themselves. Some points for consideration, if the college is to arrange the same kinda event in future :

1. The start & finish archway!
2. Need safety cones specially at the highway
3. To consider RELA too
4. When we finished our run, 2 hours after flag off, the gardenia & milo lorry were no longer at the college compound. Hmmm..
5. Can we have better quality of medal??

Anyway, water stations were sufficient and I heart the running tee in terms of the size.

The route

Lari2 di highway! 

Us & medal

Next run will be on 9/5/15...

Happy Labour Day & Wesak Day to you guys! I'm goin' to Penang! Yeehaaa...

WW : Draw & Express

When Hubby whatsapp me the above pic yesterday...
I feel like a stab right on my heart!
Can you understand what's Rayyan trying to express?

1. Daddy & Exora went back to KK
2. Rayyan, Ryanna & Daddy staying in KK. That's the guard house entering our apartment
3. That's mommy's office in big city, KL. Mommy has to frequently fly back to meet us in KK

I didn't know my Rayyan will express our current situation through his drawing
I feel like I'm such a selfish mother, am I?? *sigh*

Mommy feel you my son!
Mommy miss you all too
Mommy will try my best to gather with you all asap!
*teary eyes*

Pangkor Trip 3D2N

Surprisingly the renew process of the domain, turned out well. So, the blog is still exist. Hahaa..

Ok.. Let’s talk bout my kinda-last-minute-planning Pangkor trip. Reminiscing Redang Trip la kunun. 

3/4/15 (Day 1)

Since our driver (Lia) was unable to join us on the first day, we, Tunung, Lin & I,  have to take bus from Pudu Sentral (Puduraya) to Lumut Jetty. We purchased the bus tickets a day earlier. It cost us RM27.20 per passenger. 



Bus supposed scheduled at 9am but only departed at 9.30am. Another pitstop at Hentian Duta before the journey began. The bus stop for toilet break at Sungkai and before arriving Lumut, the bus stopped at few bus terminals along the way to Lumut.

We finally arrived Lumut at 2pm. Roughly about 4 hours la.

The Lumut Ferry Terminal is just walking distance from the Lumut Bus Terminal. Ferry fares at RM10 return trip. So, please keep your ticket. Ferry ride approximately 30 minutes.


Just for info, other than Lumut Jetty, a new jetty which is Marina Jetty offers shorter ferry ride to Pangkor with merely 10minutes ride.


From Pangkor Jetty, we took the pink bus, to our chalet, Nipah Bay Chalet at Teluk Nipah. RM15 per trip. As per signboard, Teluk Nipah is 6km away from Pangkor Jetty.


Nipah Bay Villa… the first impression was bad! Regretted the reservation we made here. The surrounding is messy to me. Our room is at the ‘end-of-the –world’!  If you come here during non-peak season, I suggest you to just walk-in for room check-in.  There are plenty chalets over here. Foods? No worries at all.

Walkway to our room


After late-lunch, we were just wandering at the street while waiting for hornbill feeding. Do drop by at Sunset View Chalet at 6.45pm for this activity.


It was already 10pm when we went out for late dinner. By the time we finished our dinner, most of the stalls were already closing. Dan kami pun balik bilik dan keboringan. Haha! How I wish we could have walk along the beach at nite, like what we did in Redang, but the beach in Pangkor sangat la gelap gelita. Serammm plakk… Huhuhuhu..



4/4/15 (Day 2)

Since we didn't make it the nite before, we purposely woke up earlier for morning beach walk. It was indeed a great idea coz belum ramai orang. So, taking pictures macam orang gila. Hahahah!

Wefie

Had our breakfast and while waiting for our driver-friend, we decided to go for boat trip. RM50 per trip. I was enjoying the boat ride to the max and didn’t really paying attention to all the crocodile/turle/foot/whale rocks. *sigh*



When the other friend arrived, we had our quick lunch and off for island tour. Tour la sangat. Heheheh. The pink bus driver asking for RM70 for the 2 hours tour, but we managed to nego to RM60.

1st Pitstop & 2nd Pitstop

3rd Pitstop : Fu Lin Kong Temple
Sini ada mini Great Wall of China

4th Pitstop : Galeri Pangkor

5th Pitstop : Kota Belanda

5/4/15 (Day 3)

Breakfast – Check out – Ferry ride to Lumut Jerry

We managed to do some shoppings at the Lumut Jerry. Didn’t manage to take any photos here. Tengah hari buta kot… panas gila! Sempat lagi lepak dalam 7-Eleven makan ice-cream before journey back to KL begins. Hahaha

Dropped by at Teluk Intan for late lunch, but before that sempat la ber-posing di Menara Condong Teluk Intan. My 2nd time here after 2003 if not mistaken.

Menara Condong Teluk Intan
So yeahh.. that’s all bout Pangkor. Actually, we all agreed that the trip agak kureng puas hati compare to Redang. Hmmm… Whatever it is, the time spending between us that matters.

Check out Tunung & Lin's entries too..

Last but not least, total damage for Pangkor Trip less than RM300! Just as what I have budgeted. 

Till our next trip!

My Love.. Doo Manager!

I wanted to blog about my Pangkor Trip, but maybe I should wait until next week. As I said in my earlier entry, my blog domain is going to expire this Friday. I'm not really sure what will be happening to this blog. I guess I'll just do the backup and hoping that I won't have to create another new blog. Huhuhu..

Btw, are you watching the Korean drama, My Love From The Star, airing on 8TV every Mon - Fri at 8.30pm now??

Ohh boy... Did I ever tell you that I'm not a Korean-stuff person? Can you believe that I never watch the Winter Sonata drama, when everyone were talking bout that back in 2003 if not mistaken? However, I did drag myself to watch Autumn in My Heart & Full House.

Do Min Joon & Cheong Song Yi
Starred by Kim Soo Hyun & Jun Ji Hyun

It's been ages since my last Korean drama series, thanks to my roomate, Sis Mouren, whom successfully 'poisoned' me to sit together and hooked in front of TV watching Doo Manager! Arghh... I hate his cool look but at the same time loving it too! LOL

Due to over-excited, I have finished the whole episodes of the series via Drama Crazy. Punya semangat! Can't get enough of Do Min Joon laa!! Hahaha..

I suddenly feel like years younger!! LOL...

Schooling Session 2015

Just came back from Pangkor. Indah kabar dari rupa. Haihh.. Will share about it next time. I need to rant bout my kids schooling session this year.. for my future records of coz.

When we planned bout the back-for-good idea, the kids’ schooling thingy need to be in place first.

Ryanna

Had registered my lil girl for her 2nd year kindie at Tadika Hwa Shiong. Just next to my apartment in KK, Putatan to be exact. The registration was done by my BFF, Julie in March last year. Thanks Julie! RM50 being the registration fee  + RM180 being the first month school fee (Jan 15). Totally no hassle for Ryanna’s school.

A week before school starts, we went to the kindie to settle the school fees and collect the uniforms. Paying approx.  RM600 for that. Phewwww….

Schooling session same as previous kindie, 8am to 12pm. As for the first week which was the orientation week, the schooling session only for 2 hours daily the entire first week.

She was ok at first

Ryanna’s first day… we were so surprise that she eventually cried! Haha.. Her classroom is upstairs. We went down for a while and when we came back, I saw her worried-looking-face. She kept on looking outside trying to look for us, I believe. The minute she saw me, she cried and wanted to come out. Oh dear… tried to persuade her but failed. Brought her to toilet as she claimed that she wanted pee. Sent her back to the classroom, yet she was still crying. No choice, we left her crying and went downstairs. *sigh* Luckily she already stopped crying half an hour after that.

Kesian betul tengok dia nangis... huhuhhuhu

2nd day, she didn’t cried but she forced us to wait for her outside the classroom. She kept on looking outside, just to make sure we didn’t go anywhere.

When Rayyan tailed along... Happy betul Ryanna!

Glad that she was ok 3rd day onwards. She was sitting quietly at her place. Unlike at home, she is the one giving us ‘sore throat’! LOL

Transportation : we are lucky that one of Ryanna’s classmate is staying on the same block with us. So, boleh la kasi tumpang. RM30/month.


Rayyan

Still frustrated up till now! I wish we have had planned it earlier. *sigh*

Due to last minute registration, Rayyan was placed at SK Kepayan. Earlier, we actually registered him at SRJK Chung Hwa, KK, my ex-school.  Even though my husband managed to get approval from MOE for the school transfer to SRJK Hwa Shiong, next to Ryanna’s kindie, due to ‘full house’, the school asked us to follow up for the relocation, which we didn’t managed to! Long waiting list! *sigh*

I wish I could do something about it. Is it too late for relocation now? Haihh!!

Nyway, Rayyan was doing great on his 1st week schooling. In order to identify which class he has to enter, he had to sit for Diagnostic Test on the first day schooling. Reading ABC, suku kata & simple words. He did it excellently and was placed in the 1st class out of 6 classes. 1 Rafflesia it is.

Kelam kabut sikit time ujian tu.. Dun think the teachers are well prepared.. hmm..

Nope, he didn’t cry. Just sitting at his place quietly. That’s my boy. The first 2-3 days, we waited him outside his classroom and brought him to the canteen and let him made his food / drink purchase. Most of the foods (kueh, nugget, sausage, mini sandwich) are selling at 2pcs for RM1. Drinks at RM1 per cup. So, average daily pocket money at RM3.

Rest time!

He is good at making friends, but not at asking his friends’ name. Calling them as ‘kawan’. Haha! Actively and happily running around the school compound with his new friends. Hmmm…
School fees + books.. approx. RM200.

The small pic - captured Rayyan was chit chatting with his friends.. hmmm...

Transportation : Met this family who were waiting for their son which is also in Standard 1 and they are staying in Kinarut. Means, they will be passing by my house area. Boleh la kasi tumpang. RM60/month.

Ok! I’m done with this finally! Hihihi…
