Toby is now ONE!




So we had a simple celebration (yet busy night) during Toby's birthday.  

And now, we are counting down for big brother Aden's birthday which is this Saturday~
Well no more celebration like this la, perhaps just a dinner with both in laws and my family.. Too tiring to organize another party :p
Actually we sort of celebrated Aden's birthday in advance last weekend, haha!

Shall write a proper blog post about the party, soon I hope ^^

Someone naughty.......



......... is turning ONE year old tomorrow!!! :o

Time really flies!!

I still remember all the bitter sweet moments while I was pregnant with him...
I still remember the day I gave birth to him, and how long he made me suffered before he came out to meet the world....
I still remember the confinement period with him... and how we deal with a jealous big brother Aden...
I still remember all the hard times breastfeeding him, and how I deal with engorgement, sleepless nights (even until now) and the list goes on and on......


Arrrr, it's been a year!!! Not that I am bragging but I must give compliments to myself, hehehe :p
And must not forget to wish my dear past life lover Toby a happy blessed birthday! Mummy loves you big time!!

We are having a small birthday party at home tomorrow evening, shall share about it here next week.

Til then, have a nice weekend!!

What I found....

I was cleaning up my files and documents at home the other day and I found something which put a smile on my face............





Haha! That's me, no need to wonder.... xD
I think this photo was taken at least 10 years ago. The so called 'qing chun zhao' 青春照, very popular during teenage times. I bet most of us taken such photos when we were young, especially the ladies.... I was kinda chubby back then, kekekek~ 


Next one, a very decent photo of me and my then-bf, if you can see the date on the bottom right, taken in year 2005, that means 11 years ago! Look at us, looking like budak budak, wahaha! 


I am glad I kept those photos until now.. Brings back a lot of memories, and I can show to my kids in the future, antique! :p

Do you have some old antique photos of yourself? Come, share with me! ^^

Short holidays down South

We spent 4d3n down South to KL last 2 weeks.

 The starts of the their holidays and my tired-days xD
(Playing at SIL's condo)


First place to visit is One Utama, one of Aden's favorite cartoon character, Thomas & Friends.

 This boy just won't take a proper photo these days :(



 Too bad la all the Thomas trains are being fenced, not so interesting anymore~
 
The boys enjoyed a bit of riding there. This time we did a very minimal shopping (Actually nothing to buy already... Just loitering around enjoying air cond :p)


Since we don't have much to shop, we decided to go jalan jalan instead. 

Guess where were we?

If you can recognize the status of Liberty behind us......

And also those indoor game machines.....

 Can guess or not?

 Yea we went Genting Highland!





Thinking to enjoy the cold air one but mana tahu, it wasn't so cold also >.<


Actually a lot of areas are still under constructions (if you can see those cranes behind us in the photo), and nothing much to do also la since we don't gamble also. So we just loitering around then had lunch and came back KL in the evening~


Little boy dozed off in the car, must be tired following us, haha!


Next day, we traveled another 90 mins down South to the historical city~

Malacca! It was a Thursday but the crowd was crazy! Lots of tourists especially those from China....

And it was such a HOT day!
 

First challenge for me was to carry an 11kg weight and climb up these stairs..... =_=" 
Never mind, I take this as an exercise since I ate quite a lot lately, LOL!


With the in laws~ 

Well at least it was kinda windy up there~

Super hot, tak boleh tahan, bought 100 plus to drink~~

My 11kg weight xD
And because of him I have very strong arm now :p





Must not miss visiting the Jonker street


Had the famous cendol and coconut shake here~ Also tried their nyonya dumplings, curry laksa noodles and nyonya dinner~ Sorry no food picts ya :p


Also did what a tourist does, paid RM 25 for a short trishaw ride (Less than 10 minutes)
Actually we were kinda shy cause our total weight is like 130kg and I can see the uncle was riding very hard xD
Plus little Toby was very uncomfortable already (can't you tell from his face? :p) so we requested for a short ride only....

Overall it was quite an enjoyable trip, but without daddy though :(
It was quite a challenge bringing two kids on my own, but I am thankful that the in laws were there to help~
Shall visit again when hubby has a holiday next time!

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful weekend!

Busy Hayley

Hi guys! How's your weekend?

Hope you had a great one!

I am not sure about you but I realize time flies as we grow older xD
Especially if you have kids to look after....


These two cheeky fellas is the main reason why I have been so slow in blogging these days...
Sometimes if I am lucky, they sleep early and I get to do my own things. But by the time I finish my chores, I am already half dead and I just want my bed.....


Seriously 24 hours a day is just not enough (I know I have said it before...)
Toby is getting more and more sticky to me, most of the times I have to carry him in one arm and do my work with the other hand, so now I can say I have pretty strong muscular arms... haha! xD

Then big brother Aden is the same. I have no idea why he is so lack of 'sense of security' lately, he keep looking for me/calling me even though we are at home, surrounded by family members whom he sees everyday =_="
I keep telling my hubby I need to split myself into two already, and he just gave me a smile.

Honey, seriously I mean it ok?

I know you will tell me to enjoy and cherish this moment because when they grow up they won't be so sticky/close to me anymore....  Okay, I am listening and trying my best to cherish this feeling....

Shall catch up with you all soon! Have a great day ahead!

The pitiful iPad

How many of you can stay calm if your kid did the following thing to your iPad?



T________T

Come, raise your hand, honestly.


This son of mine, really drove me nuts everyday. He threw his daddy's iPad from upstair this morning. No reason, just because of his tantrum.

I came home from tomb sweeping and MIL immediately told me this, and when I looked at the iPad, I really din't know how to react. Anyway, I did not beat him, I scolded him. Already told him numerous times that he is not supposed to throw/hit the iPad just because Youtube videos/games cannot be played.
I knew one day this iPad will sure gone head-wired one, just din't expect to be this soon.

Now, daddy got to spend some money to get the iPad fixed.

Sigh... Tell me how to teach a stubborn boy like Aden :'(

Crabs & lobsters

Headed North to Penang last weekend to enjoy a meal with crabs and lobsters!

Had my hair dyed and highlighted, ash green this time. And I wore a green top on purpose to match it, haha xD 
We were on the way to Strait Quay~

Look at my little chef, seems very enjoy with his drinks~

This restaurant serves fresh crabs/lobsters/oysters, and they have a variety of special drinks for you to choose


After putting on the plastic apron and gloves, we are ready to get ourselves dirty! (Look at my little Toby, cannot wait to eat liao xD)

Aden with his ah ma and gugu~ (That's the fried mantau on the left, very yummy!)

The interesting part about this restaurant is they pour the crabs directly onto the table (covered with plastic of course). You can request for them to serve in pot too~
This one is with black pepper sauce.

And this is garlic butter sauce


We ordered their signature sauce too, 3 levels to choose (mild spicy, medium spicy and extra spicy), we picked the mild spicy one and it's already quite spicy!
Orders are based on ala carte style, each comes with add on like corns, clams, sausages, prawns and etc 


3 sets for just us you wonder? Haha! Actually 4 other friends were there but everyone were too busy feasting til we forgot to take a group photo :(

Look at the mess!! :p 

Total bills is RM 400++ with drinks (8 adults). Worth a try, since the seafood is fresh and the sauce is good!

After the satisfying lunch, we walked around the mall and left (Weather was hot!)

Here's the address of the restaurant:
Crabs & lobsters oyster bar
Strait Quay
Seri Tanjung Pinang, Tanjung Tokong, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia
