Mid Autumn Festival 2011

I've been MIA in the blogsphere for a few days and now I have lots to catch up on =_=

Anyway, I was at KL for a short trip to attend a friend's hens night and registration ceremony, it wasn't me driving but I felt really tired these few days... Must be not getting enough sleep/rest... =_=

Ok back to the topic, mid autumn festival is officially over and similar to previous years, Taiping Lake Garden was real happening! Lots of crowd, candles, lanterns and fireworks!


My favourite mooncakes, from Baker's Cottage

Black Dog Society (BDS) organized a BBQ session at Sentosa Villa

Apart from eating, we had a small candles session too


These lanterns are not cheap these days....

We prepared some food and drinks and had heaps of fun there~



Well, Mid Autumn Festival in August in Lunar calendar is not the only celebration, many people are getting married too in this auspicious month, and the months to come. Believe it or not, I received 9 wedding invitations from now on until end of this year.... God bless my pocket.......................

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!

I also love the spacious bathro…

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…
