Shopping for baby no 3.

TCE baby fair.

Yeay its finally the long awaited baby fair! Wasn’t planning to come here in the 1st place considering how easily tired and megah of me at this stage of pregnancy…but then last min decided to join mr hubby who insisted to come here by himself to grab the neccessary stuff…

So we were off to Midvalley Mall around 10am. Its been a while since the last time we were here. Don’t like crowded place. Well my hubby hates it. Hahaha..me sekali sekala don’t mind la.

Hubby bought pampers mami poko rm41 je per pack. Dia borong 6 bungkus 😄😂 i sold 2 to my adik. Coz we don’t need too many newborn size pampers.

He bought loads of wet tissues and stock up some j&j lotions, pureen brands and i grab some accessories for the doona stroller. Oh yeah bought some breastfeeding bottles and ice pack as well.

I didn’t manage to grab the boba wrap. Tak nampak pun. Next targetlah.

It was fun. But at the end I retreat..dok luar jaga barang while mr hubby keep diving in to find hia baby treasures.😂😄

Thank you syg! I have always been amazed with your practical shopping skills!

So most of the items checked.

Need to finish paying for my medela pump.(rm1800).cacoona (rm550) and a boba wrap (rm300). Gilee weh mahai..brg baby hi tech la ni. Hai kalau ikut hati wish list is the baby monitor camera. Yg lama dah rosak..too bad rosak..if not useful sgt.

Focus with pump cacoona n wrap dululah. Coz tu dah aim lama dah… Mak pun dah x larat..kacing. 😅

Oh btw the rest we recycled kak wawa’s and abg aqib’s baby stuff. Baju also just bought a few new set only. Shopping for no 3 is actually quite serdahana. Alhamdulillah.

Car Boot Sale continued.

Waaa..as expected just now the most feared thing is happening!  Now officially have to rebut for slots.

Lebih ramai menjual drp yg membeli ūüė¶

And the wheather was too hot sampai rasa nak pitam. My face is soo red!

But alhamdulillah. Sale tetap berjalan mcm biasa walaupun price war and competing with more penjual. Slow sikit today. My books tak terjual.

We noticed we have some frequent customer ..yang paling lucu there is a guy who asked for my daughter’s clarks shoes dtg lagi dgn harapan dapat rm15. Erkk minta maap banyak2.

Total sales bolelah beli tix jakarta kot hahah air asia pegi balik masa zero fare promo. Kihkih..Tapi bila split kena la berusaha gigih lagi. Demi anak2..nak kan jalan2 bercuti kan. Sikit sikit lama lama jadi bukit.

I am sun burned. My hubby is already sleeping. PENATnya MasyaAllah with the heat especially.But Bersyukur sangat2 dapat slot last today! Yeay!

Come and visit us k!

The Holiday – Jakarta Trip 2013

I’ve decided to finally update on our recent holiday trip to Jakarta during last March school holidays.

The purpose of that trip was to make sure my maid “balik kampung” (return trip to her home land went on smoothly). She highlighted that the immigration officers were making such a hassle during her¬†first trip¬† back then in May 2011.

We booked her return ticket on 22nd March, Friday so that she could enjoy at least 7 days break in Jakarta. While ours was on 27th and our return tickets was on 30th March Saturday night.

Day 1

The flight details

Normally we would have flown with Air Asia, but after comparing all the cost and convenience factor we decided to go for KLM Airline. The cost was just RM100 difference with AA. I’m glad we opted for them! Was expecting an old plane with poor interior like our previous trip in 2008. Surprising we got the new plane, new interior an excellent cabin crew for both ways. Alhamdulillah! Pelik pulak rasa mat salleh yang serve kita hehehe! The food on our way to Jakarta was just chicken pie, that was ok enough for us.

The Accommodation

We decided to give it a try on a new place called Aston Kuningan, Jakarta. The rate is quite the same with Aryadutta Apartment Hotel (check my last trip entry) but they have 1 room with 1 king bed and another room with 2 twin bed. One proper bath area and 1 toilet area, a living room and of course a complete kitchen with fridge. Didn’t notice a¬† washing machine, was not planning to wash anyway here!!

The hotel pick up service was good, siap serve air in the car cold mineral water and can drinks! We need that upon arrival!

You see the red bag? We travel with only that bag, inside a small black bag, Just that!

In order to travel in comfort AND to minimize budget, we opted for 5pm flight hehe. So we arrived at Jakarta around 6pm Indon time (7pm Msia). I’ve arranged for the hotel van to pick us up, more reliable and time saver lah…I was told earlier by my cousins some Taxi driver might not be familiar with the location.

We arrived at our Hotel after all the “normal” MACET experience around 8.30pm. Checked-in and we decided to have our dinner at the hotel restaurant. A very nice restaurant with live band kugiran and candlelight! Right after dinner, terus naik and tidur!

1std day

Day 2

Well we didn’t plan to hire any driver, but my dad tried to call this one Bapak because we heard his rate were good (recommended by my uncle). So walla by 9am we got ourselves a Supir to drive us around.

That's our car for 3 days

That’s our car for 3 days

After a very musykil breakfast, (I don’t know why I was feeling a little bit doubtful…they were serving pork in the same room labelled “non-halal” erkkk…not that I’m not used to it just kinda odd after quite a while…. hehe just to let you know we opted to avoid all meat dish on our 2nd day.

Our first stop was the Mangga 2, pasar pagi the furthers venue. Since it was our first venue, I couldn’t decide whether to buy the bags here or not. Tak tau lagi berapa murah…or mahal kan. So there were a lot of window shopping done. Travelling with 2 kids at this age can be quite challenging. Sarah was sulking…bored…tak nak jalan…and blabala..Aqib was too active…so end up like last trip with my MIL we decided to lepak at the A&W. Eating!! LOL! My Mom & Dad sempat tuh order their glasses to be delivered to our hotel once it is ready.

I’ve managed to grab a few baju for Sarah and Eli here. RP70,000 each…oh yeah we didn’t find any of the usual handbag port…so NIL no bags here. I just set my eyes on this PRADA Jelly bags they were selling it at RP700,000 (tak bargain lagi ni). Menyesal tak beli…because..(TBC)

Then we went to the 3rd floor of the other wing to the beads area to buy some beads. Honestly I’m not good with this la…I bought a few for the sake of buying hahah, oh yeah it was cheap though! Impressive, I wish we got something like this here in KL. My mom bought hers…so mine I’ll figure out something lah nanti nak buat and jahit kat mana. Beautiful beads!

Beads!! Best kan??

By the time we finish Mangga 2 it was already around 2ish, lunch at GARUDA and straight back to the city for Tamarind City. Yes the MACET is such a waste of time. By the time we arrived here it was almost 6.00pm!! So sangatla limited time, the shops closes at 7pm. This is already in the city. So guess what the price…remember the Jelly Bag? I saw this one nice black one with leopard printed based selling at RP1.3 juta!! No nego tau! Uwaaa menyesal…nyesal…I know we will not have time to go to Mangga 2.

Here the price is a little bit high…but choices are great! Saw a few Jubah and beauiful indonesian style tops. Bought wawa a muslimah swimming attire for RP100,000 and tops for my sister in laws here sampai takda size lah…kedai dah tutuplaa katakan!

Here, we had our dinner at the 5th floor – Manhattan Fish Market and then we went to the kids floor to treat my kids at their painting area and took a train ride and merry-go-round. Wawa painted a tshirt…hehe…once done around 10pm we head back to hotel. Waaa what a long day….

merry go round

Urut

My mom and me decided to go call up the women for urut session in our room. It was lovely…for RP100,000 per person. By 12 am barulah we’re all set to sleep! Fuhh! Sedap,badan dah sakit-sakit.

Day 3

It’s Friday, and we wanted to go to Tanah Abang the most awaited venue for me la…but then we also wanted to go to Mayastik. Gosh, too little time soo many places to go! We headed to Mayastik first, my oh my everything has change over the years. I was not familiar with the location. There was a mall in the middle of the Mayastik. After a few round, I couldn’t find the shop that we used to go recommended by my Indonesia tailor Kak An. We left the boys and the kids at the mall, hoping by 1 hour we should be done. But due to the newly constructed area…we wasted time there. When I finally discovered the shop time was up. Bayangkan lah macam mana shopping in 1/2 hour? The most disappointing part was trying to find a nice cotton material. I couldn’t…for me it was nothing amazing…but I bought some for wawa and my sil. I still don’t know what to do with the extra cotton..tried selling it..but heheh..it is still with me.I don’t really wear cotton…but I’ve send some to the tailor for raya at Kampung hubby this year.

Next stop, my father la pulak requested to stop by at  Pasaraya Grande at blok M, uwaaa so Pak Supir said this is on our way.  For those who loved POLO brand, here is where you can get original shirt at discounted price. Bought one for Mr Hubby and myself one.

You guys should stop by here…for the first time of my sooo many trips to Jakarta we tried the local satay!! Yummey!! MY favorite so far…as usual we restricted no ice rule. Wawa adjusted well with the chilled teh botol! haha…mujur! We solat jama’ takdim here at their Musolla. big one and I discovered a costume shop! YEAY ! I’ve yet to blog about this…8 costumes all together! Nanti eh my party blog!

By the time we reached Tanah Abang the MACET was veryyy bad. Guess what we had to turned back and head back to town….:( so sedih…we stopped by at the Senayan Mall. Both malls. Here where things get even worst. You see my phone line Digi was having some problem upon our departure to Jakarta, so I ended up without international roaming. No line at all to make calls! So there was a miss-communication between the four of us…I almost cried of frustration. Waiting without being able to contact any of my family members. The two kids were with me..and Wawa had this loss scene (i purposely hide) because she ignored me…well I over did with the hiding that she cried and went searching on the wrong direction. Debehnams staff were with her when she finally saw me.

toys

we’ve spend like 2 hours waiting here!!

Ayoo!! Head ache. So there we go…Day 3 gone just like that!!

Day 4 – Last day

Time flies, it was already the last day and I still couldn’t believe it that we have not reached Tanah Abang yet! After breakfast we left the hotel to Tanah Abang. We had to split due to the check out time. They dropped us at one of the door (me my mom and Aqib) while wawa followed my dad and my hubby back to hotel. Guess what?? It was not the main gate! (nak elak jam punya hal). We had to walk all the way to the right block. Saw the Jelly bag! I just grab 3, unfortunately you cannot fold it..so faham-fahamlah!

bag

I cannot decide which one to buy but I ended up buying a maroon, white and glitter pink.

We kinda bought whatever we saw at our first sight due to the time constraint. Found this polo shirt for the boys, bought a dozen of it for nephews and my son. I don’t know why this time, we didn’t see any nice stuff at the market. We bought the mini telekung as sourveniers, and I bought one turquoise telekung for myself. That was our last shop…rupiah cash dah run out had to add with some RM. No nice white telekung…:( BUT I love my turquoise telekung hehhe…

tanah abg 2 tanah abgThen…we wait and wait for our supir to come down from the parking place (6 level). The MACET was very bad…we waited for almost 2 hours just for him!! Dah cuak dah terlepas flight!! Patutnya nak singgah one last time at Tamarind Mall apa pun dah tak sempat, rushed to the airport and baru boleh bernafas lega.

There we were joined with bibik and her son an army. Tumpang barang bag kosong dia hehe.

airport 20130330_201607

The best part is that, when you take KLM even the airport is different! Terminal 2 was much more calmer and high standard,alhamdulillah everything went well. Upon the immigration counter, bibik were asked to go to a seperate counter on her special foreign worker pass. I refused to leave her alone, and done all the talking. Alhamdulillah the guys were ok..bibik pun lega. Kalau tak macam-macam depa nak..according to her last trip.

The dinner on the plane was great, dessert, western halal meal (x ingat dah), buns and juice.

So there you go…a shopping holiday. MACET ooo MACET…waste of time sungguh!! But we’ll never be SERIK of Jakarta hahah..perhaps later tunggu depa besar sikit and please go for 5 days at least!airport1

safely reached home

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.

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

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.

Al Kisah Sehelai Seluar Color

From BV2 to GE Mall to KLCC, I cant even find myself a decent red pants! All seams to be tight fitted ‘skinny jeans’ or the price is way overboard to me yang nak pakai sempena this friday videoshoot!

I loved this turqouise skinny pants at M&S limited edition by them but it cost RM289 errrkk, this red capri pun comfy but capri pants hanging above the buku lali la pulak!

British India at GE Mall also have this colorful range of pants,my heart almost jumped of happiness when I saw this rack of blue,gree,red,pink pants but duhh the price is again RM389! Btw,BI is having their merdeka sale till 2nd Sept,so there were dark blue,green,maroon pants on 50% discounts BUT no size 14! duhhhh and no red color!

ZARA is the only one offers coloured pants at RM119,tried my size but me with skinny pants? ahaks sungguh x menepati syarak..if I want to buy I must wear it with extra long blouse!

So,ditto went home empty handed! I guess I’ll just stick to my blue or black M&S jeans je la this friday!

Color blocks just have to waitlah,I guess I’ll play around with my shirt and tudung je!!

I’ll snap some picas la nanti ya what i will finally decide!

Dont ask me what videoshoot,I’ll reveal it once everything is done!

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!

xoxo
