The Villa (Bali)

Initially the villa was recommended by our tour agent. It was between villa Alia or villa Gembira.

We specifically requested for the accomodation to not be in Kuta as we heard its noisy..horrible traffic and busy. So seminyak it is.

Base on the pricing, we opted for Villa Gembira. It is actually a 4 bedroom villa with one huge common area (kitchen dining and tv area) and a huge pool.

Their service is actually very satisfying to me as each villa is assigned with a butler and his assistant whenever he needs.

Butler services inclusive of preparing us indoor breakfast, cleaning the dishes after breakfast and later their room service will clean the room on daily basis.

I’ll give it a 4 star out of 5 bcoz..of its beautiful villa… well secluded and secured. The rooms are comfortable with each open roof area. Err yang tu in my view menakutkanlaaa..at night I had to wake my hubby to teman me to toilet. Hahahahahahaha…..ada one night tu one loud noise on the roof. Fuh being a very light sleeper of course akak cuak..kehkeh..perasaan.

I have nothing to complain i guess except for these:
1. Its not located near a beach at all! Well according to them you can walk about 12 mins la..but for me tgh not well and with org tua lagi manalaa larat kan.
2. No buggy service to send and pick us up. Just discovered at the end of the trip rupanya our agent la bertungkus lumus usahakan ada van amik depan villa kuar villa.
3. Mosquitos wise…banyak but they do prepare the ubat nyamuk..and net. We were ok as we’ve done our research earlier. Bawak insect sticker..siap2.
4. Halal food utensils…uwaa they are not muslim friendly. We had to samak all the kitchen utensils b4 the butler can use to cook our food. Its a normal thing la kalau travel overseas but I guess if you can find a muslim friendly villa better lah. Kalau tak samakla macam kami bawak sabun samak moden tu. Hehee..jenuh waaa..
5. Food Halal – they do have halal beef and chicken patties. So ask for it k. We all siap mintak nak tgk halal logo.

The star of this Villa is of course the pool! My kids swim all they can! Oh yes another thing I love about this villa is that it is all one level. No stairs! Good for orang tua. 10 mins walk from Villa also is the town and supermarket bintang.

Would I recommend this Villa to others? Definitely if they don’t mind with all the comment given. Check it out ok. It is quite actually an awesome villa!

Bali (day 2)

The next day we woke up as early as 5.30am as the sun was almost up already. By the time subuh finishes around 6ish am the kids woke up and terus wanna jump into the pool. Waaa pagi2 also wanna swim ka 😅😅 so at 6.45am they were already in the pool while waiting for the butler to come and cook our breakfast at 8am.

image

Aqib woke up a bit later and straight he went peeking at through the glass door..

image

image

image

image

The butler preparing our breakfast. 1st day was a bit confused. We thought they don’t have halal beef patties. So we stick to eggs and roti je sungguh tak best.

image

image

2nd day baru managed to sort it out and finally we have some meat in our english breakfast.

After breakfast we went to the Turtle Island via a small boat. The kids loved emm very much. Me sakit sangat pinggang after the trip. Beautiful…gorgeous! Just look at the blue ocean. Hey its not that hotlaa…pasal i dah expect the worst kot 😂😂😄😄

image

After turtle island we went for lunch at this ayam penyet restaurant. Solat siap2 also there.

image

image

image

image

image

image

image

Then on our way back the van stop by at a few placess b4 we head home to the villa. Souveniers shop.

image

image

image

image

At Agong..Aqib was running here and there under mr hubby supervision. I noticed the tshirts sold here were really nice and good quality. But bcoz I was targetting to go to Krishna base on my spa owner friend..so I tried my best to limit my purchases here. Bought me, Aqib and Wawa a Bali tshirt. Some colorful selipar and keychains.

After Agung, finally we arrived at Krishna. This time I let mr hubby go first while the kids stay in the mpv. So that he can grab everyone each sourveniers. Menyesal tak beli banyak2 at Agong..here at Krishna their tshirts not very nice but there were a lot of spa stuff here..so I just grabbed some lulur, lotion, oil as gifts to my family. Sticking to core family members only.

Lastly we just dcd to stop by at Kuta beach while the rest went to Hard Rock Bali and some went to buy gifts by the beach. We all decided to just sit and enjoy the beach. But pftttt 😤😤 ramai gile org soh amik service dia until mr hubby was very worried to leave us there. Took a feet massage for 80k rp.

image

image

Lastly we went for dinner at xxx err macam takda je..so malam tu we rest and eat maggi and whatever we have at the villa.

Gosh masa malam tu my pinggang hurt very much already. Barely can move. I didn’t even come out from the room and rest.

Walla finnito day 2

Uptown Danau Kota

Recently my little bro proposed to bring my mom and the rest to checkout the uptown market at Danau Kota.

But before that he introduced us to Mali’s corner. Located just behind festive city mall.

It is well-known for its famous char keutiau basah and their side dish nasi lemak.

image

image

image

image

image

Look at the queue…panjang betul! One lot of the shop is for kewtiau and the other lot is for nasi lemak and air. Self service ok…semua kena beratur.

image

image

image

image

Then after the delicious dinner,we walked to the uptown around 11pm. The place is basically like pasar malam but it is full of baju…toys..jerseys…and many more! Sangatla teruja for party planner macam saya ni heeee…Aqib party mmg semua dah ready on my scrap book..tak sabar tunggu $$ and date je.

30 june and 10 march is a sunday peeps!
Another small scale party.lah ya?ūüė¶

Anyway…jom layan picas..of the uptown.

Bobbi brown

Our fav makeup is by Bobbi Brown
Why BB?
Because of the natural makeup concept that believed in

Fav item
Of course their lip gloss blusher and eye concealer and silver eye base.

Makeup
I think it is quite reasonable for them to charge to doll up for a function. You just need to buy their items and eligible for a touch up! Yeay!

Our fav kiosk is at Pavillion!

Here are some picas taken during our recent visit!

Mommy’s Matters – International Baby Expo (IBEX)

Hi there…guessed what I managed to drop by at this IBEX yesterday during friday prayers¬†break BUT only for¬†20 minutes! We were from a meeting in Shah Alam¬†and¬†supposed to be¬†back in the office by 12.30pm but due to the horrible traffic only managed to be there at 1.45pm!

Plan punya¬†plan….for ages…20 minutes je! arghhh¬†sabar¬†je¬†la hehe!

Anyway my mommy’s group were already planning to go here since June…we constantly update each other on the sales and expo organize nearby. Since our new HQ is located next to the convention center it was perfect!

Incase you are planning to go here….totally recommended! Loved the participating brands! For more info click here!

My review

1. Registration

Yes you need to register before entering the expo (we were late therefore for us it was such a hassle!) Once you fill in your registation form you’ll need to submit the form at the counter and they will give you a sticker that you need to wear.
image

2. The pathway

It’s very wide and lapang….very convenience to push your strollers around! Loved it!

3. The participating brands

AVENT, PUREEN, MAM, CELLSAFE, WHOPEE¬†DIAPER, MANDELA,MAM, GRACO, Fisher Price,¬†a lot of international brand…I didn’t have the time to cover the whole hall but those are among that I passed through. Oh yes…DYNAS’s Mom’s Wear was there too! Saw her thought of dropping by nak¬†snap picas…but time was tooo short! Next time!

4. Shopping

Managed to shop for the necessary items (claimable¬†to en suami)¬†-hahahah..MAM’s teats and accessories.stock up my pureen¬†wet tissues (18 packets), breast pad and pampers. The unneccessary¬†item :p (non claimable)- bought this beautiful mommy and daughter korean made ruffle blouse…waa so cute!! AND this baby cum shopping trolley!!

5. Urge

I really feel like going again today…coz tak puas. But let’s just see.. haha I have a facial appointment today at klcc. Nak¬†cari¬†piigeon breast pad lah!…maybe some baby gifts for the twins!

6. Pictures Рdo excuse my picas in here I was totally rushing! Dapat la jugak snap gambar though! heheh!

Trolley tu cool giler…kalau nak gi dekat2, weight 2.5kg only, foldable. My colleague pun beli,it can hold up to 20kg!image

Marilah kita beli beramai2 trolley tu! so easy to maneuver

 

So let’s plan early…be the early birds today!

Happy shopping!

My Kids Paediatrician : Klinik Pakar Kanak-Kanak Shanaliza

image

Hi, while waiting for mr hubby to pick us up I decided why not I blog our kids paed. Our favourite kids specialist when come to checkup our two kiddos. Why we loved her clinic so much? Bcoz¬†of the doc¬†herself,Datin¬†Dr. Shanaliza. She is sooo¬†good with the kids and we favour her compared to other paed¬†for her caring,motherly nature. She explains well and never fail to comfort us as a parent to our sick children. Her 2 wonderful staff Yes…the very first time I stepped in to this clinic somewhere 2nd quarter of the year 2007 after the tragic death of Doc Haliza,Sarah’s paed¬†at Ampang¬†Puteri¬†Specialist…this aunty greeted us “mama…knp mama?” wah…comfort feeling terus! Her other staff is also very friendly!

Consulation Hours

The only down side is her opening hours,you gotta go just during her limited consultation hours. But I guess that is what all about opening her own child clinickan? hehe So I decided to share with other mommies out there her opening hours so senang for u to plan when to go. Ramadhan Consultation Hours dah ada kat sini I ask achik ni, and she informed opening hours will be as usual but they are closed at 3pm. Meaning no night consultation during ramadhan.

Contact no

It is best for u to call first before coming! I got her no in my hp. Best tips if emergency If my child is badly ill during the odd hours, I always bring them to poliklinik kotaraya first,the next day baru to paed.

Others

Besides that, Doc Nasir is also our 2nd child pead. He is also very good and the best part he warned us about rotavirus being non- halal for muslims patient.

Sharing is caring! owh by the way wawa naik all red whole body bcoz of her high temp fever last few days. got her special soap n cream.

Review on Mother and Baby Kids Expo June 2012 @ PWTC

I noticed my blog search statistic queries were mostly on baby fair that I went on Friday. So I think it’s time to share my review today. so you guys can decide whether to go or not kan;-)

Well to our dissapointment the participating brands were sooooo less compared to the other mommy baby expo that I’ve been to before.

They claimed to be “the largest baby fair in Malaysia” but hmpp in what sense eh? What we noticed were the huge spacious pathway,which I acknowledged and cheered for as parents can easily push their strollers in both direction freely! Maybe the hall is to big that the number of booth opened looked sikit?!:-/

Well maybe because it was Friday afternoon,less crowd,less hassel for us to park and we took our own sweet time. I noticed some booth are still not open that day,hopefully there are some additional booth and brands open for today and tomorrow.

One of my friend even called me to complained on her dissapointment on the participating brands.

venue: Dewan Tun Razak 1
image

the banner that greeted us

the entrance

the expo map

studying the brands- nampak mcm byk,tapi booth sikitūüė¶

image

the huge pathway

image

among the favourite booth,ramai betul serbu yang ni

image

one baby world ada! yeay mujur

image

me as always will stock up my ebm plastic

image

bebe brand – good promo on breast pad and baby wipes. kira okla gantikan pureen booth yg missing

image

The rest are selling the baby matt mcm carpet which I dunno why tak prefer,design tak best kut?! haha
There were chicco,whoopee pampers booth, nursing and maternity clothing like mums dreamz,aussino, baby kids books and etc..haha for me tak menarik. oh but credit to the organizer for me it was very organized with the baby room,stroller rental area,stroller parking area.  Slagged in terms of participants je. Oh yes most of the empty space were filled in with jumping castle (there were 2 huge air filled castle tau!!)

I guess baby fair are getting quite frequent nowadays…my theory is that when it is too often less participation kan?

Anyway we did loose a few rm! I got my spongy blocks there! yeay.

so totally up to u guys nak gi ke tak,but if u are free y not kan? Masa ni la barang discounts!

Pampering Diriku : Spa Review 3

We had accidentally discover this Spa during our stop by to shop at Fabulous mom @ Ukay Boulevard last week. Located on 2nd floor from Ratu store.

My dear friend saw the promotional bunting advertised and told me “Kak Iera if one day nak singgah sini. nak gi sekali” So there and then, I thought why not we just drop a visit to inquire on the packages and see the ambiance ourselves that day.

A week later, we decided to give it a try with my 2 close colleague from office.

The ambiance is okay, we feel very comfortable for a spa at a shop lot. There are 4 rooms – 1 is the office we can perform our solat there, 1 big room for facial & massage (fit 3), 1 room for saloon and 1 room for sauna + massage. As it is a private muslimah’s spa we were comfortable to make ourselves at home boleh bukak tudung and everything…haha!

For us the price is really affordable for those who loves to spend your time, pampering yourself for full body massage,lulur/scrub and etc, its worth a tryūüôā For us we try the 2 different package that day. Mine was full body massage plus facial, while my other friend took full body massage plus sauna plus hair wash and blow. Each set only costs us RM80! (This is member’s price, non-member is RM90, normal price is RM110)

From all the services we took, I am definitely coming back to get body massage. While my other friend loves the facial treatment. For normal facial they are using mustika ratu product (only RM40) or for upgrade facial (RM80) they will use Mililea product.

Saloon area

                                                             Sauna box
                                                              The lobby
                                              One of the treatment room
                                                      The reception area

I seems to react to mustika ratu products so it’s a no-no facial for me next time. I’ll stick with my SKII facial. heeeee…….

Tapikan….urut dia….is the best! I got this girl name Mira. It only costs you RM50 for a full body massage tau. Memang ok dekat spa tu. Maybe because it is new…but its clean.

If keen to give it a try, just call the owner – Miss Iris/Lin she is very friendly only 36 years old and the best part is she is my newly discovered neighbor! Her daughter too is in the same school as my Wawa!

So our review results for this Spa is:-

Ambiance : 5/10

Service : Urut 9/10 , Facial 7/10, Sauna 7/10

Price : 10/10

I totally agree with Iris, the concept is an affordable beauty center for all.

Family Time @ Kidzania : Part 2

Continued from Part 1 entry

From Painting School, we then had to persuade Wawa¬†to try the “dentist” job.

Gosh it was soooo difficult to convince her to do this as she refused again and again due to this mannequin yang jadi mock patient! Yes!! our daughter hates any form of mannequin since she was big enough to differentiate that thing.

She can play with it but she refused to have it in the same room with her at night! Why we want Wawa¬†try this job ? Because she’ll learn how to brush this big teeth replica.¬†Missy yang jaga¬†turn ni dua¬†tiga¬†kali¬†tanya I, “Anak¬†akak¬†ni ok tak nanti, takut¬†dia buat¬†hal¬†kat dalam¬†dentist” I know my daughter very well of course everything will be ok.ūüôā ” Takpa¬†dik, kat dalam¬†dia akan¬†follow apa¬†staff instruct”

True enough when her turn finally arrived, she was smiling ear to ear, excited with the white doctor overall that she got to wear. The kid brush the teeth and were given some briefing (due the loud fire fighter sirens it was opposite the fire station! kita tak dengar apa pun kat luar) and finally got the chance to actually try fixing the teeth! (masa ni we realised Wawa is the smallest kid in there! tak sampai nak tengok mulut patung tu!)

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† That’s my girl, berani¬†dah check gigi¬†:)

Sadly by this time, my X10¬†ran out battery and we had no choice but to use Wawa’s¬†camera to take some photos…haiyah!

Her 2nd final job is of course among her favourite Рas a beautician. She wore this pink overall and do makeup for a customer! She was smiling and giggling with the girl customer. Siap berblusher,lipstick and the girl came out with a very pink cheek! LOL

Masa ni time dah 7.10pm, so we decided to try one last job…coz Wawa pun dah start penat¬†sangat¬†and ngantuk…and I targeted this Ayam¬†Brand School of Cook, next to the Sushi (age limit tak cukup).

Pictures tak transfer lagi from wawa’s kamera…nanti ya.

I like this one very much CHEF costume complete with the hat!, she learn how to cook/prepare a heart shape sandwich. Lepas habis masak, they all can eat the sandwich!! Wuhooo Sarah seronok sangat. I noticed her interaction skills has improved a lot, she actually chatted with the other kids! Alhamdulillah, slowly.

Oh yes,,,for those photography lover…SONY send out their photographer all¬†over¬†the Kidzania¬†taking shots of kids in their uniforms. Once they capture ur¬†kids pictures, they will scan your child’s wrist band and when you go to SONY store, just swipe your kid’s wrist band and you can see all the shots taken. BUT….it’s expensive, 1 picture cost RM30¬†or you can buy 3 pictures¬†@ RM70. I had to choose between¬†6 shots! Once they printed the pictures, there is a code on the pic where you can download the pictures from their site. (ahhh¬†baru teringat¬†nak¬†download the soft copy)

It was really fun, I wanted Wawa¬†to spend all her Kidzos¬†shopping but Mr Husband said keep lah…as we shall come back to try other jobs! Yeabbadobado…hopefully next time gan her cousins pulak!ūüôā

Perhaps November nanti ya! During the long school break!

That’s it…wrapping up. That’s our story! We Heart Kidzania¬†very much! We know you’ll love emm too! Have fun!

xoxo
