when we reached there..the weather was very misty..tak nampak jalan langsung..and quite sejuk..we parked right inside the ind
oo
r theme park...when we were in the indoor theme park..it was a bit confusing..we didn't know where to head to..but..we did manage to find our way..


the first ride that we took was the carousel..


after that..it was arissa's turn alone..to play the car ride...(this o
ne aryana tak boleh join..sebab kecik sangat )..


and the last ride for the night was the ferris wheel...


we went back to the hotel at about 10pm..when arissa n aryana masing2 dah macam moody..a very tiring day it seems for you guys...for mama n papa as well..

early morning..after breakfast..arissa was surprised by the cupcakes n lots and lots of presents...yippiieee!


then..after, what we called a lil' birthday bash..at about noon..we went up to the top of the genting..at first we wanted to go for the outdo
or theme park..but when it came to our turn to buy the ticket..suddenly..they said..tak boleh nak masuk..because the weather at the time macam dah nak hujan...so..we decided to spend the whole time in the indoor theme park...

so...we managed to ride on most of the rides..first we went for the floating boat, then we went for the gondola ride, after that we went for the train ride...that was what we had as our family ride..oohhh..not to forget..the carousel thing...

but for the rest of the other time...it was fun time for the birthday girl..yup! you spent like..i lost count on the numbers of how many rides arissa had on the car ride...after another ride..another ride..and another ride...but arissa still didn't show any sign of tiredness nor sleepiness..

we ended up leaving the place at about 11pm.. * huaarrgghhhttt..so sleepy *

this was our last day of the trip...so..it was time for us to go back...

after breakfast..arissa, aryana n papa went for a dip at the swimming pool..according to papa's reviews and mama's observations..the hotel's swimming pool was a nice place..especially for kids..quite kids' friendly kinda place...

while arissa, aryana and papa had their swimming activities..mama had to pack all of our things..so...at about noon..we checked-out from the hotel..

and when we get back to gombak..suddenly..arissa was being surprised by another birthday party..organized by the opah and the atuk...with few guests of arissa's gombak friends, as mama calls it...kak nida, abang syamil, farah, the kembar; hazira & hazika, lily, kak ika and aiman...

A Get Away with the Shah Alam Gang




As of 24th Dec 2009 until 26th Dec 2009...we had a get away to Port Dickson (PD) with the Shah Alam gang - naming; Datok, Wan, Auntie Sis, Uncle Cik + Auntie Shieda + Irfan, Uncle Yat (came back for a one-week plus holiday from japan) , Uncle De, Auntie Ain and Auntie Cip...

It was a 3days 2nights trip..with a fun-filled activities..yay!

:: 24th December 2009 ::

On the 24th Dec 2009..we (mama, papa, arissa n aryana) were the first..should we call..'batch'? to PD...since on this day..everyone was quite busy with everyone's other commitments ( auntie sis and uncle de had to work, uncle yat needed to do a blood test, and etc..). so started our journey to PD from shah alam at about 3:30pm..the traffic was not that bad, considering it was a long weekend christmas holiday...we reached at PD...to be exact..Bayu Beach Resort (that was where we stayed)..at about 4:45pm..along the journey, arissa and aryana had their naps...but as soon as we arrived at the place..arissa terus tuntut..."mama, arissa nak pergi swimming pool"...yes..we did promise arissa to have lots of time in the swimming pool..and..yes, arissa..you were unbelievable..cos knowing u...whatever that we promise you, you'll surely demand it...so..if you somehow not sure will be able to fulfill your promises top arissa..don't ever make one...cos i tell you...she'll give you.."i'll give u hell" kinda attitude..hehe :D..so to say...

So after we checked-in..and checked-out the place..we directly headed to the swimming pool..while waiting for the rest of the entourage...first time getting into the swimming pool..only mama jer yang temankan arissa n aryana..cos papa couldn't get wet since papa needed to wait for the others...so..arissa mula2 tuh..macam takut2...sebab dia rasa pool tu macam dalam..(blame it on mama jugak laaa..sebab terus2 masuk without using the steps..hehe)...but aryana pulak..on the other hand..dah get all excited...aryana ni pulak..memang jenis berani lain macam...(tapi...masa 1st time, when aryana was like 3mths old; the first time aryana had a dip in the pool..dia macam takut jer..)..but this time around..she had no problem with the pool...

We spend about 2hrs in the pool...by that time...everyone is there..except auntie sis, uncle de and auntie cip...they arrived at about midnight..when everyone was sound asleep...and we just had our dinner at the resort itself...but it was kinda late..well..about 9pm..where else everyone had their buffet at about 7pm..since it was a christmas eve...

:: 25th December 2009 ::

Early morning, Datok, Wan, Uncle Cik and Uncle Yat...had their golf tournament..which had 4 golfers only (yup..them..!)..and for the rest of us..yang tak reti or tak mau main golf...we had our mandi activity...yes! as always..arissa n aryana were demanding on the swimming pool..while..the others (auntie sis, uncle de, auntie ain n auntie cip)..went to beach..yup..mandi laut..while..auntie shieda had to teman irfan yang tengah tidur (irfan @ 6mths)...

arissa n aryana had a really great time in the pool...mama n papa were happy to see that you guys had fun..aryana pulak..dah pandai main air n pelampung dia tuh..she really knows how to have fun in the water...and some of the time..dia macam tak mau dipegang..rasa macam dah terer laaa tuh dalam pool tuh...arissa pulak on the other hand..was being the careful one..very the berhati2... :o)

about noon..we went back to the rooms to wait for the golfers for lunch..and we had nasi ayam brought back by auntie sis and auntie cip...

then..lepas asar pulak..we turun balik to the pool..but we were just about to seronok2...alih2 hujan pulak..so..kelam-kabut laa naik balik..but while waiting for some time...then..the hujan dah teduh..we moved to the beach pulak...mula2 tuh..papa kononnya nak tunjuk skill main layang2..but then..alih2..ada pulak gadget yang tertinggal dlm kereta..so..tak jadik laaa main layang2...and when arissa n aryana saw wan, auntie sis, auntie cip, auntie ain and uncle de mandi kat laut tuh..arissa n aryana pun..apa lagih..join skali..but this time arissa n aryana takder baju tukar,,so,,they had to take a dip dengan baju2 tuh skali..and naik dengan baju2 basah tuh jugak...

lepas maghrib pulak..we had dinner at a seafood restaurant..and came back from there..we had like a small post-birthday celebration...and a big part of it..was to celebrate Datok n uncle cik's birthday...but it turned out...looked like everyone had their gifts each..

:: 26th december 2009 ::

it was time for us to go back..so at about 11:30am..we went back...

after we reached at gombak..not long after that..uncle pis..came to gombak as well..with a big cake for opah...actually..the celebration..was not actually..really really sort of a birthday celebration..it's just that..uncle pis dah bawak cake..n we all pun baru jer nak lunch..so..it looked like a small birthday celebration...

:: 17th December 2009 :: - Part 1 ~~ Dora the Explorer ~~ -

On this day...The Danias were pretty busy..first....a meet up with 'Dora the Explorer'...second..opah's birthday bash (some sort...)

:: Meet Up with Dora the Explorer ::

As early as 10:30am..we went out from the house...the original plan was..the whole gang keluar skali..(mama, arissa, aryana, opah n atuk)...but then..pagi2 tuh..opah kata..dia macam pening kepala..so..at FIRST..we decided..opah n aryana stayed at home...but then..when mama, arissa n atuk were about to go out...suddenly..aryana pun nak ikut skali..dah nangis2 nak ikut atuk...so..at LAST..we decided to bring aryana along..bukannya apa..mama takut kalau bawak aryana with just mama n atuk, takder opah skali...takut tak menang tangan..but bila tengok muka aryana tuh..macam kesian pulak..so..gamble jer laaa..bawak laaa aryana skali..sian opah...tinggal sorang2.....

then..sampai kat 1Utama tu..sedang2 elok..pukul 11am...we went straight to the place..and see how's the place..tengok..mula2..takder laaa ramai sangat..so..sempat laaa..arissa n aryana hanging around kat situ kejap..dapat laaa sorang satu tattoo kat tangan, arissa pulak..dapat laaa main basketball tu (tapi satu pun tak masuk..heeh)...then..ada one big box ni...that u have to get inside and grab as many papers as u can..mama try laa masukkan arissa dalam tuh...but arissa just stand still..and tak buat apa2..so..arissa kinda kena kick-out from there..errkksss..




so...sementara nak tunggu Dora datang..since there was free coffees @ starbucks...mama n atuk managed to enjoyed the coffees (yummy..sluurrrppp..the coffee was good!)...


Then..at about noon..mama n arissa went to the place again..(at time hour..aryana dah tido..)...
while waiting for Dora..they have some activities..so arissa join laaa aktiviti mewarna tuh..


at about 12:45pm...they announced that we had to get the photo passes for us to take a picture with Dora...and yet..we had to wait..until 1pm to meet Dora...so..while waiting..they had some interactions with the kids...mm...


waiting..waiting..waiting..here comes.... DORA THE EXPLORER...

(spot the difference?)

but..mama thinks..the waiting is not worthwhile the time with Dora..meaning that..the appearance of Dora was way too short...arissa kept saying..nak jumpa dora..nak jumpa dora...BUT..arissa managed to get 2 photo shoots..hehe..and they gave free printed photos..yay!!

oohhh..by the way..being among the so called 100 first persons..we managed to get free gifts..which include a t-shirt (which is wayyyy toooo big for either arissa or aryana), one activity book, and one some sort of magazine?


aahhh..we went back home..right after the photo shoots...so..about 2 something we reached home...so..arissa's and aryana's activity..was just meeting up with Dora the Explorer..(but for aryana..meet up with Dora in her dream...zzz...yang lawaknya..sebaik nak balik..BARU laaa aryana terjaga...mmm..)

PlayTime @ iKaNo :: 15th Dec 2009 ::

~~ Today..it's another Danias' Day Out!! Yay!! ~~

This time around..we go jalan2 at Ikano..near that Ikea...

This place kat Ikano nih...in mama's opinion..is not so much fun..bcos..not so much play thing that you can enjoy there..the place is just a one-corner place..with few slides, a big blown-up, some sort of a castle..and a place you can sit around and do a bit of art work..(which is not yet suitable for arissa n aryana)...

During the time there..arissa n aryana..just played at that one slide (yg kecik sikit tuh)...and then..the house yg small tuh...that blown-up castle tuh..arissa n aryana mcm tak berani nak masuk pun..arissa did try nak climb up on the slide from inside..but she decided not to go...she said..takut..mm..so..they ended up..playing around there jer...

After while..both arissa n aryana...dah get bored..sibuk tengok the big elephant, giraffe and panda nyer ride tuh...but mama thought..that things are too big for their sizes..kinda thing that you have to step on the pedal..and manoeuvre the thing using the steering...

Then, we went to ikea...but that time..arissa n aryana were a bit tired already..everyone gave a bit of not so good attitude...time nak lunch tuh..aryana pun dah lapa..and so did arissa..they ended up..drank their susu...and not so much of lunch to eat...in fact, aryana pun..dah tido..by the time the food was there... ( ramai sgt pulak org during lunch time kat cafe dia tuh, this time..not like before..)

so here are some of the pics...




...and a video...

* 3rd December 2009 *

After a day of resting at home @ Gombak...today..mama thought of bringing Arissa n Aryana to Kidzsport & Gym at 1Utama (old wing)...before this..we usually went to Kidsgym (as refer by Arissa) at Great Eastern Mall..but this time around..mama rasa macam nak try different place..itu pun after that one outing at 1Utama tuh..mama ternampak that same place..since Atok pun kata dia dah lama tak pergi 1Utama n dia pun teringin nak pergi sana..so...that's where we went to have some fun...yippiieee..

At about 10:30am..we reached at 1Utama..we parked the car at the old wing...parking pun tempat yg open tuh..jarang sekali dapat parking situ..but since tadi memang tak byk org lagih..so we decided to park there...sampai2 jer kat 1Utama..we went straight to the place..

On the way to the place...singgah japs kat promotion area kat tgh2 1Utama tuh...Arissa kept saying 'mama, susu arissa...susu arissa..' Ada laaa tempat bergambar tuh..so..here's the pic...

That place was way bigger than the one in GE..it was a nice place..lots of spaces for the danias to move around...mama personally like that place very much.. :o)

Anyway..sampai2 jer..Arissa yg dah biasa ngan places like that..dah tak sabar2 nak main..terus2..nampak pool of balls tuh..terus dia pergi sana...



Aryana pulak...yg masih belum biasa to these kind of places..macam ragu2 jer nak main..but Aryana kept following her sis Arissa..but after some time..dia dah get used to the place..suka dia main kat that place..and there is a place yang utk all the 3yo & below kids..so..that's where Aryana played...


Aryana..penat sangat..sampai sempat tido..dah mengantuk sgt..sian dia...but sis Arissa..still tak penat2...dia masih lagih energetic tuh...but since Aryana dah tido..(mama pulak lupa nak bawak stroller..) ..so we decided to call it off at 1pm..but sis Arissa being a good girl..she seems okay with the idea (and maybe..bcos...she too were tired..)..sampai nak keluar from that place pun..mintak dukung..(Arissa dah berat laaa..nak dukung lagih? at this moment..Arissa weight is like 15kg)..

After main2...we went to have our lunch..at Seoul Garden..yummy..yummy..and we went back to Gombak at about 3pm..(mkn sampai 2hrs? hehehe..buffet..u know laaa..)

But amazingly..sampai rumah..dah mandi semua..Arissa still tak mau tido..Aryana jer tido jugak laaa...mm...tahan betul mata sis Arissa nih..ker..dia nak lawan rasa mengantuk dia...??
