Jalan2 Balik Ipoh (Part 2)

On day 2 in Ipoh, we decided to chill out at Lost World of Tambun. The place is a smaller version of Sunway Lagoon. Lost World of Tambun is managed by Sunway Group. The surrounding is beautiful. The park is located in a valley surrounded with limestone cliff and jungle. They still maintain the greenery. Memang sejuk mata memandang.

We arrived around 10ish in the morning and the park has just opened. Our first stop is the Petting Zoo. It housed a number of small animals like rabbit, snakes, birds, raccoon etc. Why it is called the petting zoo? i think because we can touch, feed and even hug (yang ni i tak sanggup) the animals..
The kids always enjoyed reading books on animals, so we thought they would enjoy visiting the zoo. But we we wrong!! we went into this Big cage of birds. And before we know it both of them started to cry when the birds flew near to them. Gosh..menangis melalak punya type. The bird keeper gave some grain at my palm and the birds started flocking my palm in a jiff. bukan cakap anak, mama pun terjerit. basically sebab geli :). both of the kids berkepit with Mr Hubby sambil nangis-nangis. When the keeper gave Mr Hubby some grain, the kids apa lagi..melalak tak hingat punya.

Before the Bird cage we went to Serpentarium. It is basically a glass tunnel, where it housed snakes, iguana and lizards. They were so huge i tell you. Bibi ran away when we walked through the tunnel. mama pun takut jugak, tapi buat2 berani. The kids were okay during this time. maybe because the snakes are not moving.

Then we went to Rabbit Wonderland. This part only Nadhirah cried. Muqtasaem enjoyed feeding the rabbits. Luckily we bought 2 packets of the food. YES we have to buy the food. Sib baik RM1 je for 1 packet.

Surrounding the Rabbit Wonderland, there is a stream with fish in it. They called it longkang fish. I dont know why they called it that. we can try to catch the longkang fish with the net provided. the kids enjoyed feeding the fish as well as trying to catch it using the net. i think the fish are already familiar with the net and unfortunately, no one succeed in catching any fish :). But it was fun though!.

We spent about 1 hour plus at the petting zoo alone. It was really hot but we had fun. Then we were off to the Water Park. Muqtasaem jumped in joy when he hit the pool. Nadhirah only last 10 minutes in the pool.

While Mr Hubby and Muqtasaem having fun in the pool, we had our lunch at nearby food court. The choices of food are limited and its pricey! But since we are all hungry, price does not matter.

Dah nak balik, baru nak main2 air

Overall we enjoyed the park!!

Jalan2 Balik Ipoh (Part 1)

the long weekend is here for Federal Territory workers (yippie). Mr Hubby decided to head back to Ipoh, his hometown. The journey started a bit late in the afternoon. A lots of things need to settle before we could start our journey. Nadhirah had her 18months jab. Then we attended my cousin's newborn Aqiqah at TTDI. then we rushed to GH to visit my auntie whom just had an operation yesterday.

On our way back to Ipoh, Mr Hubby decided to had a stop at Air Panas Sungkai. it was around 6ish when we arrived at Sungkai. The hot spring is located in Felda Sg Kelah itself. The entrance fee is RM10 for adult and RM 5 for kids.

There are 2 pools, Kolam Air Gunung (the cold version) and the Hot Spring (the hot version). Kolam Air Gunung closes at 7 p.m but the hot spring closes at 10p.m. We managed to dip our feet at the hot springs. Muqtasaem enjoyed dipping his feet in the pool. there are few pools depending on temperature. ada jugak kolam utk rebus telur! hehehehhe..
Nadhirah was not really enjoying it. skit skit suruh bibi dukung..lucky me :D.
we only stayed there about 45mins, since Maghrib is approaching. But overall, its not bad at all. The place is a bit secluded and the scenery is marvelous. Yelah dalam kawasan Felda :).
We wished that we could stay longer..maybe we can plan for a day trip!

Here some of the info about Sg Kelah Hot Spring. excerpt (

"A splashing and exciting getaway, the FELDA Residence Hot Springs is nestled in the serene and lush forest patches, surrounded by hills and clear cold mountain streams and rivers. All 6.5 hectares enjoy the scenic view of well-tended oil palm plantation and durian orchard amidst a haven of tranquility.

Muqtasaem is 34 months (2y 10m) today

In 2 months time my dear son is turning 3 years old. He is still not talking. He can say few words mostly one syllable like "cat", "duck", "jet", "ball", "book". Sometimes if he wants to drink, he wud say "aaayeerrr" (air). he actually can talk cuma berat mulut.
Normal ke for boys lambat cakap? I talked to several teachers, they said its normal for boys to start talking later than girls. And some kids do start talking at 6 years old!!! Hopefully he wont take that long. Cepat2 ckp k abg.
Even Nadhirah starting to mumble few words. Thats why we sent muqtasaem to playschool. Let him mix around with other kids so that he starts talking. I really do hope so!! He starts to like going to school so nowadays its a lil bit easier to wake him up in the morning. Kalau tidak naik jenuh nk layan his tantrum.

Gedebuk jatuh lagi

Nadhirah is becoming more aggressive and active. N sometimes she can be so garang. I was sitting on a couch watching tv with her last nite. Elok2 je dia duduk suddenly "gedebuk" and followed by a cry.
She fell off the couch!!!! I panicked for a while. Kuat jugak d sound of d fell. Grab her n hug her. I cukup risau bila dia jatuh. Afraid if her brain shaken or worst cud led to bleeding in d brain. Nauzubillah.
After checking her head and body for any injuries..i felt relief but i know i have to monitor her for d next 24 hours. Risau nye if anything happen. I normally check behind her ears for any blood clot or lebam and be alert if she throws up. Having kids of your own making u lil more aware of basic first aid..ala jadi doktor pun ada.
Here an article form if what to do if your babe fell..

Whenever your baby takes a serious tumble — from a couch, bed, highchair, crib, or countertop, for example — you'll need to do a thorough check for injuries, especially if he falls on his head or back.

You'll want to make sure that your baby doesn't have any serious wounds, that he hasn't broken any bones, and that he hasn't suffered a concussion or other internal damage. Falls can be serious, but because your baby's bones are soft, they don't fracture as easily as those of an older child.

If your baby looks okay to you and seems to be acting normally, chances are the fall didn't cause serious injury. Be thankful, but keep an eye on him. Continue to carefully observe your baby for the next 24 hours, especially if he bumped or fell on his head.

And err on the side of caution: If you're uncomfortable with the severity of your baby's fall — you think he had to have gotten hurt — or if your baby is acting irritable or confused, take him to the doctor to get checked out.

Call 911 if your baby experiences any of the following after a fall:

• A loss of consciousness. If your baby isn't breathing, have someone call 911 while you administer infant cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) until help arrives. If you're alone, give your baby CPR for two minutes, then call 911 yourself.

• Bleeding that you're unable to stop with pressure.

• If your baby is breathing but not responsive — he's unconscious after the fall or you're unable to wake him up after he goes to sleep, for example.

Take your baby to the emergency room or talk to his doctor immediately if you notice any of the following:

• Signs of a broken bone, including an obvious deformity, like a wrist that is bent awkwardly, or an arm or a leg that seems out of alignment.

• Signs of a possible skull fracture: A large, soft area on the scalp, especially on the side of the head (above or behind the ear); blood showing in the whites of his eyes; or pinkish fluid or blood draining from his nose or ears.

• Signs of a concussion, such as unusual eye movements or pupils that are unequal in size; persistent vomiting; or excessive sleepiness. Depending on your baby's age, look for a change in how he crawls or walks; weakness or confusion; or problems with speech, vision, or motor skills.

• Prolonged crying or screaming, which could indicate a possible internal injury.

the day my boy goes to school

after a week missing school, finally Muqtasaem is well enough to go to school for the first time. My nightmare begins with waking him up in the morning. We dont usually wake him up because doing so will result in him throwing his tantrum n being grumpy all day. Sangat bersabar tau. Mcm2 la pujuk, bribe skit2 barulah mandi n pakai baju. Owh we actually bought him a set of Thomas water bottle with lunch box. Just to create his interest to go to school. Mcm2 kena bribe ni. But as long he is happy n not too spoilt, it shud b ok kan..

Walid, jauh lagi ke school Muqtasaem?

When we arrived at his school, we thot that we can easily leave him. We were absolutely WRONG!! He held Mr Hubby's hand wherever he went. Never let us out of his sight. Susah la pulak. I thot that having friends to play with will make him forget about us. Mmg takde maknanya. But then Mr Hubby let him play with some lego..bila dia dah leka we sneaked out. Itupun after half an hour.

Mana school ni?

Somehow i know he will cry when he noticed we were gone. Mmg betul! His principal called me to give updates. He did cry for a while. Luckily he didnt throw his tantrum. Malu kot with strangers. Tapi kalau with me n Mr Hubby sure dah mengamuk nangis2 tk berenti.
Itulah kisah first day Muqtasaem at school.
Mcm mana la pulak esok...

Jalan2 Naik LRT

long weekend is here..apa nak buat arini pun taktau. then Mr Hubby decided to bring the kids around KL by LRT. I said ok la..but we dont have any destination. so off we go to Jelatek station and bought the tix to Kelana Jaya. to my surprise, the LRT was full. we let go the first train, n to our surprise the second train was also full. but we decided to board it.

when we boarded the train, no seats were available. and to my surpise, no one gave up their seats for me who is holding nadhirah in my arms. sabar je la tgk gelagat org2 ni. the problem is there were youngsters..buat2 tak nampak je. i think we passed about 5 stations then only we got a seat. lama jugak the travelling time to Kelana Jaya.

i'm driving this train..choo choo

Mr Hubby decided to go the head of the train. saje bagi budak2 tgk luar. the kids excited bkn main. ala2 jadik driver train. when muqtasaem saw another train from the other side, he will say " choo choo". nadhirah pun ikut...but only kuar muncung je.
mmg tkde arah tujuan that day, we arrived at Kelana Jaya, bought some drinks and head back to Jelatek. But the kids had their first..err second LRT ride!

si botak naik train

memikirkan masa depan

Azam Tahun Baru

Tahun baru saya bermula dengan operasi mendogolkan rambut. Mama ckp rambut saya halus sangat. Jadi mama & walid mengambil keputusan untuk membotakkan kepala saya buat kali kedua.
Mula2 saya tak tahu.bila mama ajak naik kereta,saya meloncat kegembiraan. Yelah dapat jalan2..saper tak suka kan. Pastu sampai kat satu kedai yg agak kecil & tersorok, saya dah kaget.manalah mama dan walid nak bawak saya ni..tgk2 kedai gunting rambut. Dlm hati saya, ni mesti nak potong rambut abang sbb abang nk masuk sekolah.

saya tgh relax2 atas riba walid

Tapi bila saya diangkat oleh walid dan duduk di atas kerusi, saya rasa lain mcm.knp bkn abang yg duduk di situ..dah tak senang duduk ni. Bila saya dgr mesin berbunyi saya dah panik.

ala..apa mamak ni nak buat ni..

Tiba2 ada tgn yg agak gelap pegang kepala saya dan sshhrroommmm...segugus rambut saya gugur..huwwaaaa...saya panik sampai nangis2..ketakutan. takut tau..dah la bunyi mesin tu bising, tambah lagi tangan yg pegang kepala saya tu gelap. saya meraung sekuat hati. sampai mama dan walid terpaksa pegang saya. sorang pegang badan, sorang pegang tangan. mamak barber tu pegang kepala saya.

saya tgh menangis

tgk la..saya meronta dgn jayanya

sekuat hati saya memberontak..tapi akhirnya saya tewas..habis sudah rambut saya dah botak.. tapi saya suka..rasa ringan je kepala. mama dan walid ckp saya lagi nampak naughty..tapi mmg saya naughty pun..tak kisah la ada rambut ke tidak..

taraaaa saya sudah botak

note: maaf yer gambar blur..yelah mama pakai iphone je..tak best la camera iphone nih..
