1. I brought Aden to the cinema for the first time last 2 weeks, we watched the show Fire & Rescue since he loves vehicles so much. I purposely picked the noon show, on weekday cause I guess the crowd would be lesser.
I am worried that he might misbehave in the cinema since it was his virgin visit, so if the patrons are not too many then I could handled easily.
I bought popcorn and Coke hoping these will keep him occupied too.
I let him sat on my lap, he seems ok with the dark environment and the loud noise, but during the beginning there was this trailer for the horror movie 'Annabelle', I told him not to watch (I am an kiasi mum, I'm worry this will give him nightmare) and I kept talking to him and distract his attention. He seems a little bit scared, but din't cry.
Then when the show started, we switched to couple seat since there were only 6 patrons during the entire movie xD
Overall, Aden behaved well in the cinema, it's a bit out of my expectation actually. But I noticed he got a bit boring after about 40 minutes, but luckily he din't make noise or wanting to come down. He even felt asleep towards the end of the movie, LOL!
So, I think I can bring him to another animation next time!
2. I mentioned before that Aden is terrified of haircut, it's a war everytime I bring him to the saloon. He will scream and struggle very hard, even snacks/iPad won't help.
For the past 3 months, I have been bringing him to the same barber, he is actually my dad's friend and he has quick steady hands!
Usually I'll carry Aden throughout the whole haircut, and I sort of squeeze him tight so that he can't struggle much, then my dad will hold his hands, and the barber will control his head, and my mum will try to look for all kinda of things to distract Aden's attention.
So yea you can imagine, it's like a big project bringing him to the hair cut!
But last week was the first time he din't cry during haircut!! He recognised the place when we arrived and he sorta sulk in the beginning, but only for a short while. Then he remained quiet throughout the whole haircut session, we din't even need to squeeze him tight or distract his attention.
I guess may be he starts to learn that haircut isn't something 'scary' or painful anymore? Or may be he is big boy now? ;)
So much fresher after the haircut!
I actually prefer those barber's shaver rather than trimming his hair by scissors, it's faster and looks more neat. That's why I hardly cut his hair on my own.
I hope he will behave like this for the coming haircut sessions.
3. We went lunch at a small town called Bagan Samak last Sunday and they have this small tanks which have fresh fishes and prawns, Aden got very excited and can't stop playing with the fishing net.
So he managed to catch a few big head prawns and asked the boss to cook us some yummy curry big head prawns! ^^
4. Online business is good thanks to the supports from friends~
I will work hard and bring more good products to share in the future!
Trong/Terong is a small town situated about 15-20 minutes car drive from Taiping. Recently it has become popular due to its newly opened leisure farm, a place where you eat some fresh seafood, and visit a duck farm.
During the recent Malaysia Day, friends and I organized a dinner outing there.
Naughty boy napped quite late this day and still feeling sleepy in the car~
Here we are!
The dining area is quite big, but usually kinda crowded, since it's still new now.
There's a small lake nearby, and a few resorts
You can also try the duck paddling boats there (forgot to check out how much)
Visitor can visit the duck farm nearby but we couldn't make it since it closes at 7pm, anyway we did see a small group of ducks
Quack quack quack~ All swim up to feast!
Aden is excited!
And those ducks are big and fat!
Everything is quite duck-based, haha!
We took a short walk after dinner
Aden and his girlfriend were caught dating! xDD
Here's with my bestie Annie
Overall, it's a nice place to visit. As for the food, honestly nothing special to shout about... That explain why there's no food photos :p
