Pinggan and Mangkok

On our way back from Hatyai last weekend, we dropped by this Thai food restaurant at Sungai Petani for dinner. It's called Restaurant Mangkok, famous for its Thai food.

First, pardon for the poor quality photos, as it was quite dark there so I have to use flash.

Us. Everybody were quite tired already, it was a restless trip.....

Now, the food....

we ordered this squids, it tasted quite plain, but still acceptable

This is the spicy 'sam tai tin wong' 三大天王. Nice~

This is a must-try. Dark soy sauce chicken with ginger. Super nice I tell you. I finish all the gravy haha. The dark soy sauce is from Thailand

This is another must-try, siam style steamed fish. Tasted like tomyam but more sour. Notice the cili padi? They made me sweat like mad. The soup is refillable

Curry assam bali tong (sea snails), sea snails are not my favourite though as I find it hard to suck out the snails inside, haha =D But the curry assam is G-O-O-D

lastly, their signature steamed prawns, a little bit of spicy and sour, the taste is unique!

Total bill including drinks are about RM 170 which is quite reasonable! This was my second time there and the food still taste as nice as before!

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…

The unwelcomed birthday presents

(Note: Quite a long post, I skipped my afternoon nap to write this so please read everything ya!! xDD)

Past 2 weeks were really exhausting for me.

It all started on 20th April when Aden developed a mild fever, he was tired and sleepy, I let him skipped school for 2 days.

He seldom takes afternoon nap, when he does, it means he is not feeling well :(

The next day, it was Toby's turn😢
Poor boy, his temperature reached 39° and it was on and off~
Then I notice he started to have these cute double eyelids for a few days~ Haha not sure why~
He was feeling really unwell, very lethargic, no appetite and super duper clingy to me!

Then both brothers started to cough badly 😢😢 
So on the 25th, I brought them to the pediatrician again.  He examined both boys and suspected it could be pneumonia and even dengue (because their fever were on and off). Suggested to get admitted right away.
I wasn't sure if that's necessary because I knew once admitted, have to stay for at least 5 days (h…
