Kaith & the rocking horse

See how Kaith got herself riding on the rocking horse, I think she is real daring....

She also enjoys riding the rocking horse with her brother Dillon, well that's my purpose buying this 2-seater rocking horse made of Rattan, big & sturdy enough for 2 kids to ride on at one time. :)

Kaith is One

Kaith is turning one this Thursday (3rd July) and we had dinner on last Saturday in a Chinese Restaurant to celebrate in advance. It's only a simple dinner with our family members and close relatives, about 20 of us.

Kaith fell asleep during the dinner and I have to wake her up for cake cutting, and she didn't see too happy when taking photos and lastly, Dillon has "volunteered" himself to blow the candle and cut the cake... lol

It's just like yesterday that I gave birth to Kaith, she was only 2.88kg, so tiny and so fragile...... and now she is entering toddler hood already.

Happy Birthday Kaith, my sweetheart, I wish you grow up healthily and happily, I love you. :)

Jakarta Trip

Just got back from my Jakarta trip on Monday and it was tiring because my flight was at 7.30am local time and I'm yet to fully unpack my luggage up till today. :P

Anyway, my trip was good as I get to fulfill what the company requires me to do there, and at the same time I get to watch my favourite badminton tournament live. I was holding the pass and hence I could sit at the commentary booth without having to sit at the crowded viewers area.

Nice view huh? :)

I also get a chance to see the Dinos Alive event which was held next to the stadium. This event was sold by my company and it was launched on last Saturday, what a right time I'm there to witness the event, it was real cool and I hope this event will be sold to Malaysia too!

The accommodation was very good too, The Sultan Hotel where I'm staying at has very good security and the service is always prompt & friendly, the room of course is very spacious and comfortable as well.

The food is not bad too, I had to order room service on the 1st night as the matches finished only around 8pm and I was too tired to dine out, and I ordered the Oxtail Soup (called "Sop Buntut" in Bahasa Indon, I was so reluctant to pronounce it when I made the order so I just say it in English, hehe :P)

Yummy Oxtail Soup with Rice

Of course I won't miss the chance to try out the famous JCO Donuts, which I have not tried in KL before due to the constant long queue. I've picked the Almond, Oreo & Tiramisu. It's so nice.... don't think my Jakarta trip is complete without eating the JCO Donuts..... :)

And how could I not try the local cup noodles (always the best food for traveller's! hehe :P)? It's simply yummy. hehe....

One for supper and the other for breakfast :P

Last but not least, aside from work I did manage to do some (ahem...ahem...) shopping in Jakarta, Plaza Senayan & Senayan City is more like Pavilion & KLCC type of shopping malls, whereas ITC Kuningan & Ambassador Mall are middle class shopping mall that I find more suitable to me. Kids clothing here are massive and affordable, what a heaven for the shopper mums! :)

Trip again

Yes I'll be travelling again but this time is for business. I have not been travelling for years since I gave birth to Dillon, and all of sudden the trips come one after another.... (well at least I can make good use of my passport that cost me RM300 for renewal! :P)

I'll be going to Jakarta this Friday and coming back on next Monday. This is the 1st time I travel to Jakarta so I do plan to spend some time on leisure while I'm there, although the work schedule looks quite tied up.

Also heard that shopping there is pretty ok, not sure how true it is but I'll definitely find some time to check it out and see if it can beat Bangkok, hahaha LOL.

Will share more stories & photos when I'm back, stay tuned.

Days in pain

The past week was not very good for me as my gums were so sore & swollen and I was suffering from so much pain. It was so bad that I can't even eat anything solid except porridge and mashed potatoes, I've been eating like what Kaith eats for a few days. At night I couldn't sleep well as the pain was causing me bad headache too.

I've always heard about how suffering toothache was and this is the 1st time I'm having it and I totally agreed that it's really torturing & unbearable.

I finally went to see the dentist on Friday morning and took some antibiotic, pain killer, and some medicine to reduce the swelling. I still need to go back to check if my gums still sore after the medicine finished, as the dentist suspects the root of problem might be my wisdom tooth.

I feel better now as I write, but my gums are still a bit swollen and if it doesn't get any better, I'll have to see the dentist again on Monday.

Happy birthday to me :)

It was my birthday yesterday, now I'm officially just one step away from the gate of 30's so I can still tell people that I'm in late 20's and I still falls into age group 25-29 when I fill up some forms...... :P

As usual, there is no big celebration, no surprise from hubby, we just went for a dinner for 2 at a Japanese restaurant and it was great and enjoyable; we also had a good weekend with the kids.

As for presents, I have already had the best. :)

Penang Trip

Just got back from Penang on Sunday and overall the trip was good, but hubby & I were extremely tired.

Although I have prepared the checklist prior to my trip, but yet I can forget about the stroller :P, so throughout our trip, we have to carry Kaith but luckily my sister has helped me taking care of Kaith as well.

Dillon obviously enjoyed very much, he was super active as usual (not something new right? :P) and was running around exploring places, so hubby & I have to keep our eyes on him all the time.

Now that I know, traveling with 2 young kids is definitely a challenge......
