Greetings from Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates!

After soooo long.. Finally I'm here again. 

It feels pretty.. awkward. Hehe

It almost been a year since my last post and so many things had happened over that long period. The biggest part is that we're now residing in the Middle East. And the smaller part is that I'm unsure wheather I should keep this blog or not? I'm more on Instagram lately. Snap, cap and post is the easiest way to get myself on the move while socializing it seems. 

Need to make a move now. I'll decide on the status of this blog on my next post. When is the next post? Only god knows.. Haha. Cheers to everyone who's reading this! 

 Morning view from our home sweet home.

Magnificent sunset view!

Pre-wedding anniversary lunch at Ben's KLCC

Celebrated our pre-wedding anniversary, the 5th one right here few weeks ago.
Alhamdulillah.. I'm just so blessed for everything dear god!
Every ups and downs that we faced since the very first day of us meeting face to face,
to the historical days that we received 2 beautiful angels in our life.
Everything was great, fantastic, awesome, wonderful and every single word in the thesaurus.
I'm so thankful ya Allah, Alhamdulillah..

We literally had lunch-date almost every days of the working days 
but this one was pretty much an overwhelming date. 
We are currently working out of something quite big in our life.
Paradigm shift that involves.. Umm. I don't think I shall reveal it now.
We can only plan. And he's also planning.
But he is the BEST planner of all. If god's willing, InsyaAllah.

Anyway, lets get to the simple food review as always:
The overpriced fish and chips tasted so-so only.
But the phad thai seafood linguine is A MUST whenever we wish to return.
And we just did. Yesterday. Hehehe

Down with chicken pox.

Yeah, that pretty scary highly contagious chicken pox. Never experienced that during my childhood days tho, none of my siblings had. Today marks the historical third day. My beloved mum has safely arrived from kampung today in order to lend us generous hands in running the family for a short while. Thanks! Love you so much!

Anyway I'm in the guest room now. Feeling a bit relieved (alhamdulillah) as my mom is here with us now. But I was almost near to depression yesterday, astargfirullah. I'm not in the mood to really sharing everything yet. One fine day before I get back to the office hopefully! With Faheem laying beside me now, playing the Jake and The Neverland Pirate Game. I can never type this peacefully.

Well, I'm so into these items listed below since the very first day of positively diagnosed with chicken pox.
  1. chicken pox in adult / chicken pox in kids. the difference.
  2. causes of chicken pox
  3. chicken pox treatment / medication
  4. what to do when  it is confirmed chicken pox?
  5. chicken pox vaccination. is it needed?
  6. already vaccinated. but why it reoccurs?
  7. how long will it last? chicken pox recovery timeline.
  8. the worst part, the scarring skin.
  9. food/drink to avoid during chicken pox?
  10. how to manage someone (adult/kid) with chicken pox?
  11. the dos and don'ts during chicken pox.
  12. air kelapa?? 
I'm sure many of us has had this kind of queries at least once in your life. 

I shall share the valuable information soon.

Signing off,

3rd day of chicken pox.

Singapore Trip. S.E.A Aquarium, Marine Life Park.

Trip summary. Short review. As this entry has been pending for 2 nearly months now. Hehe

  • World's biggest oceanarium. 
  • World's largest acrylic viewing panel.
  • Located in the tourist hot spot, Resort World Sentosa.
  • Entrance fee: SGD38 (adult), SGD28 (kids). We purchased via Visa and got 15% discount that day.
  • We arrived at 11am by cab and we received tickets in a few minutes. Come early to beat the queue. 
  • There's also Underwater World Singapore but Marine Life Park is the latest attraction.
  • Been to Aquaria KLCC and Underwater World Langkawi but nothing beats S.E.A Aquarium.
  • Hotels located in Sentosa Island: Hard Rock Hotel, Festive Hotel & Hotel Michael. 
  • Strollers are everywhere in the aquarium. Beware of your belongings as some places are very dim. 
  • Bring snacks and drinks. You might want to have some rest while enjoying the sea life in front of you, facing the huge acrylic panel.  
  • This place is just steps away from Universal Studios Singapore so you might consider this place if you are traveling to Singapore with kids!

Singapore Trip. Maritime Experiential Museum, Resort World Sentosa.

Last two days before we hop on to the new year of 2014.
As expected, very low activity at the office, banyak staff pergi holiday.
Parking lot pun banyak yang kosong. 
Jalan pun sangat smooth walau keluar rumah lambat =p
So I decided to post few entries today.
With lots of pictures and less (very less wordings).
Looking forward for our next family trip next year. Amin.

Bugis Street, Singapore. Perfect place for souvenir hunting.

That day, we were planning to get few knick-knacks and souvenirs for close friends and ourselves. According to the itinerary we should be heading to Orchard Road when hubby decided to get a second thought from the bell boy regarding our intention. As being advised by the friendly guy, he said it's ok to go to Orchard Road, but you only can find either luxury boutiques or stalls selling craps. I'm a bit taken a back with his comment as it does't feel like going to Singapore if you won't step foot at Orchard Road right? Heheh. Beloved hubby (being mister practical as always) decided to follow the bell boy's advice as that place suits the purpose of our trip that night - souvenir hunting. We went there by MRT and reached our destination within 20 minutes plus. It was a bit crowded that day as locals were rushing back from office I guess. But the situation was still under control as the kids were fastened to their strollers at all time. Until we stopped at the zebra crossing, facing the Bugis Street...

Oh dear.. It was jam packed in there, like seriously. Macam Petaling Street or Chow Kit kut? 
But I'm so glad and thankful that we made it through along with 2 kids!
Mission accomplished =)


I'm pretty terrified with the crowd at first (I'm afraid of snatch thief actually) so I just kept my phone safely in hubby's pocket. Frust jugak tak dan nak snap gambar banyak2. I do know Singapore has only small number of crime rates but it's better to be cautious rather than sorry at the end of the day right? Anyway Bugis Street is highly recommended for souvenir hunting. One may find so many kind of souvenirs at one place. Despite the crowd, I managed to get cutie stationery sets for the kid's school friends, key-chains for office mates, few shirts for the kids and also fridge magnets for ourselves. It's cheap and varieties! The only drawback is that most of the stalls I stopped by not interested with bargaining, semua fixed price. So we need to go round and round the place to find the most value-for-money stalls. 

Interesting Mc Donald's building at Bugis Square. 
At the back is Hylam Mall and at the front is Bugis Junction.  
So many tourist here. Still happening and kicking tho it was almost 9.45am.

Once satisfied with our purchases at Bugis Street we had dinner at Pastamania.
Then get back to the hotel to doze off..

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug on Christmas Eve

Me and hubby went to watch the sequel of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug yesterday at MBO Cinemas. As highly expected, two thumbs up for Peter Jackson's team! Although everyone in the hall was a bit frustrated on how the movie ends - the ultimate war was just about to begin for god sake! Haha. Habis macam tu je.. Memang kene tunggu Hobbit 3 la macam ni. The highlight of the story would definitely be (for me) the appearance of the handsome Elf, the master of bow and arrow, Legolas!

The first time we got to see him in action was in Lord of The Ring during my tertiary level, which was 8-9 years back?? Last time Legolas was portrayed by Orlando Bloom but in Hobbit 2 I'm not sure who he is but I think hes's not the same person, I recognized the difference between them by their lips and the color of his eye. The previous Legolas had thinner lips with higher cheek bone and the eye color wasn't that glittering blue. Maybe Orlando Bloom has grown older or maybe the make up artist wasn't too details with that. Heheh. 

Anyhow, it is pretty weird for me to begin my last Monday of the year with a movie review (after so long??). Hehe. The school is off for a week so the kids are currently staying with their beloved atok and nenek at kampung (terima kasih banyak2 atok and nenek, semoga tuhan sentiasa merahmati mama dan abah, amin!). Well that explains how we manged to watch a movie during Christmas Eve. Yeah, Christmas Eve! Super long queue to purchase the tickets as expected, but we managed to get ours within seconds as we have membership privileges. With free drinks and popcorn? I could't asked for more. 

Believe it or not, we went to the cinema for 3 times this week; Captain Philips, 47 Ronin and The Hobbit. Two of them are based on true stories while the other one is based on epic high fantasy novel. We are so glad that all them were marvelous especially captain Philips, totally worth it.

Thinking of our next movie session today but none of the screenings look interesting. Well I really wish to watch Frozen, (I'm 30 and Disney's animation will forever be my favorite. Hihi) but then I guess I should be enjoying it with the kids. We stumbled upon my hubby's ex boss with her husband and kids at the cinema, apparently they are watching the same movie. I asked weather they have brought their kids for Frozen and the answer excites me more. Their kids love it to bits, they can't stop laughing and screaming in excitement. Weeee.. The other weekend hopefully?!

Interesting Places in Singapore, Singapore Cable Car!

This place wasn't in our to-do-list initially. But the husband suggested to go for this (Voted 2011 Singapore's most popular attraction by IAAPA) when we have done with touring in S.E.A Aquarium (Marine Life Park) in Resort World Sentosa - Marine Life park entry will be updated soon! Suka betul cik abang ni dengan cable car. Last time he was the one who's urging me for Genting Highland trip so that we can ride the cable car. I'm not really a cable car person as I'm never keen of heights. Takde la sampai tahap gayat sangat tapi seghiyauuu lah bende tinggi lagi bergerak ni. I went to Eye on Malaysia few years back and I almost cried, ahhaha. The cabin stopped at various height so that the passengers can view Kuala Lumpur's city skyline especially during night. Roller coasters? Hell no, will never interested with such thing. Hoho.

After few times of persuading me to go to Singapore Cable Car I finally gave the green light as I'm sure the kids gonna love it to max. Momma will try to contain her freight, just for you kids! And luckily I did. Faheem just can't stop from screaming in excitement during the whole cable car trip, especially when the 8-seater cabin was in a take off mode as we can fell the momentum. Non stop bercakap, non stop mentioning abut everything he saw from the cable car. And Ayra? She enjoyed the ride while happily munching chicken nuggets and apple slices. Hihi

On the way to the Cable Car Station. 

Waiting in queue. Every one/family will be fit into their own capsule.
No sharing! More privacy, more fun!

In the cabin. It was spacious, clean and comfortable.

Love the see-thru walls and the green trees.

The one who was so excited inside and out. 

McDonald's in Singapore served apple slices. Love it!

Faheem's favorite. Ships and cruises!

Tinggi! Tapi tak gayat sangat as hubby promised to keep me entertained and distract me from thinking about the height. Hehehe. Sambil makan minum, sambil nyanyi nyaya, sambil plan tahun depan nak holiday kat mane, sambil layan borak dengan anak2, sambil snap pictures, sambil menyukuri segala nikmat tuhan buat kami sekeluarga. Priceless! Alhamdulillah..  

No fun-in-the-water activity for this trip. 
Sebab nanti super penat, tak kan pergi Singapore nak melepak dalam hotel je kan. 

Tengok berapa banyak kapal kargo daa.. 
Memang betul2 'Majulah Singapura' as stated in their dollar notes. Hehe

Hard Rock Hotel, Festive Hotel, Hotel Michael etc.

And this one is Fasha Sandha and family, I spotted her with hubby and boys (Rayqal and Rayfal) on our way to Marine Life Park. Not really a fan of her, tapi lepas tengok how close she is with Nora Danish and Rayqal and how her husband always spent time with the family, rasa macam suka pulak. Ok2, sila terjah blog lain kalau nak tahu pasal dunia celebrities. Hahha. By the way, the fee for adult is S$26 and S$15 for kids.

In a nutshell, I would recommend Singapore Cable Car to all tourist! 
Thumbs up!
