The 2nd move

image

Its been a successful 2 days transition period.

My boy who just turned 2 yo 6mths is more than happy to join her sister.

His sister is soo happy to have a co-sleeping partner.

MasyaAllah Aqib has been such a darling..the transition was like no big deal to him – sleep all throughout the night! mama yang rindu dia kan hehe.

I just have to share it here…on the first night right after I modified the room and move in his baby cot and add some fun factor to his bedsheet and rug. He quickly climbed on the bed..baring-baring..and when wawa wanted to join him..he said “no wawa ..ni aqib!” Hahaha…he was all excited..to climb the step and lie on his own bed.

Today wawa cried when I told her we are sleeping at her nana’s hse..she said “ala I want to sleep on my bed..I love my room sooo much!”

Oh..mana hati mak tak berbunga anak-anak seronok ada bilik sendiri.

Praying it to be a smooth transition all throughout the year for all of us! Mama can’t help it but feels she wants to join the fun too…in that little yellow room ūüėČ

Till next update!

Sarah & Her Primary School – Orientation 16 Nov 2013

I registered my girl for her primary years in March 2011, I was informed that we as parent must be alert to register our kids to the Government schools when they reached the age of 5 years old.

For first time parent, I would advice you to start googling and keep in touch with the other 5 yo parent so that you wouldn’t miss any news about the registration. By 2011, we got to know the registration was 50% ok, you can enter your kids NRIC no on the Kementerian Pelajaran site – Mine area Gombak KL ya…and walla you can see which school your kid will be assigned too.

By April 2012 ( kurang ingat nanti i check balik the date), we went to the school to submit all the necessary form such as birth cert, bil elektrik (for house address), and got our registration number from the school. In August 2012 also we were given our kid school confirmation. We pay some registration fees and tag nama¬† for her school uniform. Orientation date were also given…16th Nov 2013. (masa ni mak dah emo…uwaa)

I didn’t managed to blog about it so here are some belated pictures of the orientation.

Wawa queuing for class

20131116_082347 20131116_082621

She was in Kumpulan 6, the group was according to first come first served policy. Wow I though we were early coz our registartin number in earlier of the year was 85…then when we went for the actual registration dah group 6 pulak!

On orientation day, the kids were put in their group and shown to their classes. For me masa ni crucial to ensure she sits infront of the class. So ta da….duduklah depan anak mama. hehe

As a parent I am impressed with the school. Well organized. We were ask to collect the books and bought our kids sport attire. Text book to be purchased later during school holidays. The best part was collecting her 1st text book neatly packed in this size s ikea blue shopping bag. Best kan!

Saw a few familiar faces on that day, the best part is that 6 of my schoolmates are here with their kids and the rest are colleagues from my employer, mr hubby’s mrsm, a-levels friends. Building a good network is very important here. Mommy is already saving hp numbers hehe.

She told me…she loved the new school. Alhamdulillah.

Till next entry her first day.

KL Bird Park

September, we decided to bring the kids along with the rest of the family to visit KL Bird Park which is just nearby our Royal Lake Club.

We’ve been there a few times, but that was during our childhood.

This time is the next generation. Wawa Eli Luqman Aqib and the twins!

Aqib & Wawa was so excited. Well Wawa la kan hahaha…the park is for bird lover. You can only watch the birds!! (mama papa boring half way hokey) Luckily there was a bird show.

We had 2 solid hours in the park and then proceeded to the club for solat and group lunch.

Should you go? Yes. for the sake of local tourism industry :p nah…i mean it you should at least lah try once in your lifetime! :p

What should you bring?

Lots of water and snacks. Food and drink are expensive. Can you imagine 1 mineral water is RM5!

Stroller for toddler. This is quite a big park…or you’ll ended up with carrying them up and down the hill.

Camera and video. Yes of course.

Wear your sun tan cream and hat!

Small change to buy some feeding food in the park.

Well lets have a look at the pictures! ūüôā

Curiousity

Yes my girl has been sleeping in her own bedroom since 1st Jan 2013 and that makes it almost 4 months of a training.

My girl is a type who would always wakes up in the middle of the night, once or sometimes 2 to 3 times in a night! YES mommy has never had a full 6 or 4 hrs of sleep since 6 years ago haha!

I’m not complaining but a little bit worried when looking at her sleeping patterns. No 1 she will always wakes up around 3am in the morning sometimes crying sometimes not.

Another round would be at 4 ish or 5 ish…daily..

I try looking at a few factors that may be causing all of this:
1. Food – cara pemakanan, what was her last meal drink
2. Lifestyle – maybe not enough pyhsical activities that may lead to non deep sleep pattern?
3. Benda ghaib – terasa mcm nak check gan ustaz gak coz 3 am kan waktu syaitan kemuncak kacau. But I hope its not la coz she also wakes up at 4 n 5 am kan?
4. Habit – or it is just her.

Mommy is beating around the bush, was thinking to go and see a specialist on this. This might cause her to be too moody at day time.

Talked to my hubby about this and did consult their pead. but I guess I have to start looking for a solutions coz kesian my girl and second i too need my sleep!

YES i tgh teman my girl tido….she woke up today at 3.30am again….

almost an hour takut esok by noon i’ll be lemau already.

Nite! Eh morning people!

What we did on Maulidur Rasul Public Holiday

First and foremost lets together selawat ke atas nabi junjungan kita.

For my non muslim reader today is the birthday of our dearest prophet Nabi Muhammad S.A.W – Public Holiday for Malaysia.

My SIL and I have been trying to plan for the kids second photoshoot…and after a few dates barulah jadi today 24/1/2013. Suggested horse riding activity to be done together since last year and today jadila juga at Taman Tasik Titiwangsa.

We discovered this very cheap rakyat horse riding rate during our morning jog picnic with Tok Wan Tok Mi and my 2 nephew and niece. Wawa refused to ride the single pony ride dulu..but when she saw luqman and elli did ..barulah dia nak try.

Last night when I told her that she’ll be going for horse riding she was jumping of happiness. Bila sampai tadi…she was scared la pulak! Lucky Ilhan was there to encourage her! Terbalik kot adik beranikan kakak!LoL. I know this would happen!

Anyway we were worried at first as it was cloudy…we didn’t have any 2nd plan…erkk..terlupa sungguh. But Alhamdulillah Allah granted our prayers we managed to finish the 2 hrs photoshoot with Zaffan Zaini.

Session for 2 family 4 kids
Solo pony ride
Family horse carriage ride
Bola for the toddlers

PENAT kayy…its been a while since I last run here and there in our humid wheather.

For those who loved outdoor activities why don’t you bring your kids here for this cheap horse ride.

Charges are:
Rm1 for 1 round of child pony ride
Rm0.50 for 1 round of child horse carriage ride
Rm1 for 1 round of adult horse carriage ride.

Murahkan! It was stated here on the board that the rides are only available during public holidays and weekends. From 10 to 12am and 3pm to 5pm But tadi it was only up to 11am.

Ok lets have a sneak preview…before the official photos are out!

End of Year Getaway – Universal Studio Singapore (USS) 2012

This is the 2nd day out of 3 days trip to Johor state..but the 1st and 3rd day we were on the road traveling to JB¬†and back to KL. The rest is spend at Johor Premium Outlet, the JPO is as per¬†my previous entry. So today, I’ll just blog about our trip to the famous Universal Studio Singapore or well-known to the Malaysian as “USS”! Oh yes this time we decided to bring along my in-laws pulak.

The first arrangement was to take a package from my FIL’s¬†travel agency, but after discussing with so many parties my best friend Aida offered to lend her GPS for us to drive to Singapore! I was very thrilled to have this opportunity to drive in instead of chartering a private shuttle. Me, is the type of person who loves to have some extra adventure in her traveling life! muhahah…walaupun sesat can be¬†a bit stressing! Boring la kalau¬†skema¬†sangat¬†ikut¬†buku¬†kan! Still love my Bandung wall paintings yang masuk¬†dalam¬†kampung tu…heee (*flashback*)

One week before the trip,¬†my SIL¬†booked the Thistle JB¬†hotel online from cuti.com¬†at a very cheap rate,Mr hubby¬†bought the USS tickets together with the express tickets…and I cancelled the Starrex that I’ve booked earlier and borrowed from Aida the GPS.

For those looking for shuttle to Singapore don’t worry you can just arrange your transportation with the locals upon arrival. Charges varies from RM400¬†to RM650¬†depending on the type of vehicle you will be using. For example I booked through my own contact¬†a Starrex¬†with 11 seater for RM600¬†(Trust me it would be worth it if you are going in a big group). My friend booked hers at RM650¬†while at Thistle itself they can offer from RM350-¬†RM400¬†with Proton MPV. So we managed to SAVE RM600¬†for this trip!..and spend SGD22¬†for one day parking (I know they mentioned SGD26¬†but ours were only SGD22).

Everyone was a bit anxious as this will be the first time for them to drive into the Republic..I was anxious as I’ll be the co-pilot. We didn’t have much time to try the GPS before the trip…so when we were in JB¬†the directions were a bit confusing! Aduh..mostly at junctions! Had to ask for the Johor Regional head to assist me to show us the way to 2nd link as the GPS keep pointing at 1st link! grrr..So next time if you decided to go to 2nd link pass the highway next to seaside tu…straight along and follow the perling¬†or tuas¬†signboard. First you must find the Angsana¬†mall on your right before taking left to enter perling¬†exit. Then it’ll bring you straight to the 2nd link tol.

We left the hotel around 8.30am and only managed to reach 2nd link around 9.30am…jam sikit JB¬†pagi2 office hours.

2nd link highway to Singapore

At the Singapore Custom, we need to purchase the Autopass¬†card at SDG10¬†(there is a value of SDG4¬†in the card). For first time car entering Singapore -there will be NO VEP¬†charges, but I’ll take note that it is only free for 10 days in 1 year then we will be charged¬†SGD¬†20 per entry next time). Mr hubby need to register his insurance details and within 15 minutes we are good enough to go. 2dn¬†link is totally recommended as there are no traffic at all that day, only 2-¬†3 vehicles compared to the traffic @ 1st link! Then we just follow our GPS (it was very reliable in Singapore compared to JB!! I guess Johor pesat¬†sgt¬†membangun! Map keep¬†changing kut! hahah) Within 15-20 minutes, we safely arrive at Sentosa¬†Resort World! Yeay…terkejut coz senang¬†sangat¬†nak¬†sampai!

Many of my colleagues that went to USS in November, had shared their tips what to bring what not to bring…where to go and the rest. Read a few blogs tu..thank you bloggers. Memang¬†banyak¬†tips betul.

Bye2 USS

We were there from 10.30am till 9.00pm! Last group to leave the theme park till the security guard waited for us to exit the park hahah…

Anyway here are some tips that I’d like to highlight and share if you are a family with kids below 6 and below 2 yrs old.¬†Among the questions that we wonder and tried to google before going to USS:

1. Is the Express Pass Transferable?

РWe have a baby (below 2) therefore are aware not able to naik sekaligus.

– Some rides are not suitable for our daughter (below 6)

So mr hubby emailed to USS management and the answer is YES we can transfer but limited to one express (potong queue) for each ride. So kena pandai2lah atur..

2. Can I purchase my USS Express Tickets at the park? Is it advisable?

– Nobody¬†can answer this when I googled…and we decided to purchase 5 express pass (fuhh)

-At the park itself yes I noticed a few places selling the express pass , therefore YES you can purchase there if tetiba tengok ramai and nak beli. Please refer to the USS map on the location of the Express Tickets counter. You can buy it at most of the souvenir shop at each park.

-So¬†far…during weekdays on Singapore & Msia¬†School Holidays the crowd was not bad…so I personally recommend you to purchase Express Pass for adult beforehand and buy¬†the rest later when you think it is needed.

3. Prayer room at USS?

-Yes there is, a small one near the The Return of the Mummy park. Refer USS map.

-Small but comfortable enough to take wudhu, air-conditioned and fully equipped with telekung and sejadah.

4. Halal Food at USS?

-Yes there are. Just look out for Singapore’s Halal Symbol – refer USS Map

5. Shopping at USS?

-Most of the t-shirt, soft dolls, balls, globes ranges from SGD27, key chains from SGD5.90 to 7.90, pens from SGD4.90 to 7.90. Buy 3 t-shirt get 1 free.

-Advisable for you to grab the souvenirs at each park, as the main one does not carry all range. Macam I nak this Shrek thing, saw it at Far Faraway Land tapi takda kat kedai last tu…sigh..nak patah balik too far and too late already!

6. Drink

– Water dispenser is all over you can bring you bottle and filled it in any time.

-The one that they sell is quite menarik perhatian..all kind of shapes! Each varies from SGD13 rasanya…and to refill each time SGD2.

-Drinks is a bit expensive…so bawakla…

7. Do they check on the f&b before you enter the park?

-It was mentioned in the website no outside food and drinks allowed, but after my colleague who went earlier told us they didn’t even bother to check coz too ramai. So we selit some under the stroller.¬†Relax and lepas je ūüôā

8. USS Disposable coat price?

-Transparent clear rain pancho with USS logo at the center SGD3.

-Belila siap2 dekat Malaysia..hanya RM3.50 kat guardian. Ada 2 size adult and kids.

9. Baju basah?

-Only dekat The Lost World ada water ride ni mmg basah so pakailah poncho tu.

10. Rides for children below 2

-Only a few – Julien’s Party Go Round dekat Madagascar, Jurassic Fly dekat The Lost World, Treasure Hunt drive dekat The Mummy World, The Monster Rock Show the rest macam tak sesuai.

11. For those with babies,, no worries mashed potatoes dia sedap! You can feed them that.

12. Baby Stroller Rental

– It is located near the entrance,, just fill in the form and they’ll print your name to be slot in your stroller. No worries stroller friendly theme park. You can just park your stroller at the recommended site, tak hilang.

Note- I shall re correct the name of the ride once I refer back to my USS map. At this time tak ingat aaa hahah

Wrap up

It was really worth it to use the express pass, we just cut queue and for those small kids,kejab je kita masuk terus naik ride and walla we’re done. Senang nak tinggal2 or gilir2 among parents or sedara kaum keluarga. Totally recommended to come in a big group if you are planning to come here, the merrier the better! Kasi havoc sikit! ūüôā

The Shop closes only after the last person leave the shop. So no worries..if you during weekdays finish your rides by 7pm and  stop by the shop on your way out.

Nak bergambar pun best coz banyak staff USS yang akan bantu click the camera..even though they have official photographer -me tak amik port pun nak beli…coz takda budget muhahah!

Budget overall cash masuk Singapore and nak makan beli sourvenier bawakla dalam SGD250-SGD300 per family InsyaAllah cukup.

I had fun..everyone enjoyed the day…even though it was hot and humid in the morning and later drizzle alhamdulillah we are all well prepared mentally and physically.

InsyaAllah if Allah permits we shall return back with the Wan’s Family pulak! AMIN!

That’s all folks…hope this entry will be helpful to those who are planning to visit USS this Dec! Have fun!

xoxo

Latest updates..there is a parent swap system for the rides. If you are there with just u n hubby plus kids do ask at the ride entrance for it. My colleague just got back and told me about this. F.o.c.
