KL Festival City Mall. Welcoming 2012 with shopping therapy?

Phewww.. Me and my lil sis has just back from KL Festival City Mall (currently that mall is one of my fav due to the ample parking space and less crowd!). She prepared yummy luncheon for us today and so as a token of appreciation I'm bringing her there to treat her anything that she wishes to. Am I too good to be true or what? Hehehe..

But no kidding. She is so into cooking (like our mom) and she's a pretty good cook too I really hv to say. She made ayam masak merah, bayam tumis air, ikan goreng & telur dadar covered with mayonnaise and Thai chilly sauce while I'm busy vacuuming the whole section of the house! Kenyang sangat mommy and baby tadi, alhamdulilah.. TQ maksu!

Well, I'm planning to get a new sandal today since my current Modermum sandal has worn out quite bad. I've spotted Hush Puppies outlet during my last visit to the mall few weeks back and I guess I should have a peek there. I spent almost half an hour trying out few pieces of sandals and I finally decided to grab this one, just perfect for the foot that slowly keeps on growing and growing! Heheh. Got 20% discount too that makes it RM178 sajo!


If there's no issue of 'growing up foot' (ok2 swollen foot sounds nicer right) and water retention and what so ever, I'm sure I'll take this one home at that instant. It was super comfy and sweet sangat! It just.. Perfectly captured my foot in to them. Ahh.. Sabar2, lepas bersalin nanti kite datang lagi ok mama.. =)


And then we headed straight to Parkson. I'm planning to get a new day curtain (with vibrant color and refreshing design) for our sliding door. The ones that we are using now (since married) looks pretty worn out and boring. But then I spotted the Gelato Fruity kiosk and simultaneously the saliva keeps on bursting out. Huhu.



And guess how much this 320g of ice cream with peanuts and choc costs us? RM25. Gosshh.. It was much more expensive than Tutti Frutti! And rasa pun biasa2 je.. Kalo mahal macam New Zealand Natural ke Haagen Dazs ke tapi sedap yang amat takpela jugak. Not value for money lah. Huhu.. No more Gelato Fruity, full stop.

Then window shopping kejap tetibe jumpe BB Oasis and Modermum! Outlet BB Oasis tu it's not that big but it has so many things that I've been searching all this while! Buang masa jek carik online selama ni. Hoho. The (husband and wife) owner of the outlet was so friendly too =)


I'm sure Faheem would love this buggy board!

I'm deeply fell in love with that red hot Inglesina and and the brand new Quinny Senzz stroller! But hubby told me he's not planning to get a new stroller for Faheem's lil sis and so.. It's a NO then. The current Maclaren Techno XT is still in a good condition tho we are using it heavy duty-ly (balik groceries shopping every weekend sume bende letak atas stroller ok, baik beras baik minyak masak, hikkk). The seat is removable and washable too so it should be no big deal la kan? (pujuk diri sendiri).


Anyway I just purchased a new Maclaren's liner and MAM's soft spout for Faheem's Pura Kiki sippy bottles. Initially I'm thinking to get the red liner since the future lil bundle would most probably be a lil princess, but my sis said dark blue looks better to fit in with the black stroller. So mama Faheem iyakan saja. Tapi lepas inform kat papa, he preferred the red one pulak. Haiyyoo.. Striking sikit red liner with black seat he said. Hmm.. Nantila, kalau rajin pergi tuka la nanti. BTW the liner is only RM119, kalau online RM149! Modernmum kat situ agak bosan - very limited products are available.

Then we proceed to Watson to top up some of the cosmetic stuff and perut tetibe berkeroncong pula. Went to Cool Blog (my sister is so crazy about this) and Hot & Roll kiosk for the yummy BBQ chicken crepe. I still remember last time during the uni years there was a kiosk named Crispy Crepe (err it sounds like that) at Midvalley Megamall and me with my colleagues were crazy about it too. But I haven't met anything similar when the kiosk closed down and today there's Hot & Roll to bring back the memories. Awww..


This pregnant lady has started to feel exhausted and sleepy and severely in need of scrumptious dinner when the clock is ticking 6.30pm so we decided to go home. Pump angin kat Shell kejap and here am I.. Bergolek dpn tv sambil gelak sakan layan Maharaja Lawak Mega finale semalam. Oh dear, rindu nya anakanda Faheem kat kampung halaman bersama atok nenek itu itu..

5 minutes and counting. Happy New Year everyone!

40cm Tefal Wok. A surprise for someone so dear!

Finally a surprise is a surprise!
This is indeed a wish come true for my forever loved mother =')

It's a 40cm Tefal Wok with lid, being delivered directly to her home thru the Pos Laju. And she was the one who received it single handedly from the Pos Laju worker. Mama Faheem tergedik2 dlm rumah duk usha disebalik sliding door sambil SMS encik suami akan perihal itu. Hehehe

Well this event is termed a "surprise" since nenek Faheem was so interested with the T-fal wok (2 of them! TQ again sayang!) that the charming husband bought from US three months back. It was a simple non stick wok but it was huge, comes with handles on opposite sides and cleaning seriously made easy! Being a mother and nanny with Cook-ing relatively her middle name, she just fell in love with that wok since then. I told papa Faheem regarding this as I'm planning to give her one. She just love anything related with the kitchen ok!

I tried searching at Jusco, Carrefour, Parkson, Isetan etc but it was either too expensive or the quality was not at par. The ones that papa get for us (T-fal) is by far the best, of quality and value for money. Finally we decided to purchase it online. And the most anticipated gift safely reached my mom's house last Monday =)

She was delighted, as expected. Yeayy!!

The pretty disgusting ERL seating

I guess those ERL cushioned seating has never been replaced, since I'm riding ERL during tertiary level until now - married, with two kids! LoL. Btw this picture was taken last Tuesday when I was on my way back home from KLIA ~ spent the precious annual leave balance at kampung =)

Dear Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd, I think you should look into this matter seriously. The totally worn out seats need to be changed with a brand new and colorful ops with your corporate color what so ever and oh more plushy ones is highly appreciated. But I'd prefer if it comes with water repellent material. Well if leather is too expensive PVC pun ok ape.. As long as it's durable!

Memandai je bagi suggestion kn? Hehe. But this thing is highly critical and unacceptable, for yours truly. Look at the picture once again and don't you feel how gross it is? I'm sure there are zillions of bacteria breading happily on the seats. "Mari mari kita beranak pinak disini!!"

Sampai rumah baju seluar terus masuk washing machine.
I soaked them for 1hr with Dettol ok! Eeeuuuu...

The Cheesecake Factory. Somebody please take me there!

Dear husband went to The Cheesecake Factory last week to have dinner with his colleagues. And I was like.. Duhhh?? Agak stress di situ. Well we've went to Memorial City Mall during our Houston trip few months back and the castle-like signboard was the first thing that struck into my eyes once the husband stopped our Dodge Journey at the parking lot. Oh the font style was very similar to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by the way =)

Peoples keep on posting super nice images of the meals (especially cheesecakes!) whenever they went to The Cheesecake Factory all around United States and I just don't want to be left behind. But both of us were fully occupied with shopping activity that day and we simply headed to California Pizza Kitchen for a tea break since that was the nearest eatery we bumped-to once the tummies started to growl (it was supposed to be a tea break but we had seafood spaghetti instead. lol). To cut a long story short, terlupa terus pasal TCF =(


thecheesecakefactory.com

Those were the sinfully appetizing cheesecakes and choc cakes that papa snapped for the cheesecake-maniac wifey =( He had grilled salmon and according to him it was barely fine (as the meal was the most common food he had during the past few months at the states). I asked him to try out the Lemon Raspberry Cheesecake for me but he was too full for even a spoon of it, (mind the huge US meal's portion). Huk.. Teringin nye cik isteri ini akan cheesecake tersebut hanya tuhan yang tahu..

The varieties of scrumptious cheese/choc cakes served at The Cheesecake Factory


To ease the crave for cheesecakes I hurriedly went to Gloria Jean's Coffees at the office lobby during lunch hour. Unfortunately, there was no cheesecakes available on the shelves that day. Only a variety of choc cakes and pies with sandwiches left. (Ikutkan hati rasa nak drive pergi Secret Recipe kat Wisma MCA tu. Tapi alhamdulillah, masih ada sekelumit sabar dalam diri ini. Hehe.) And so I had Moroccan strawberry chillers with choc lava cake that day. The choc lava was not bad but it's a bit toooooo sweet I really have to say. I might be getting gestational diabetes if I were to have more than one cakes! Huhu. Hence, the choc baked pudding at The Apartment KLCC is still the best rated by yours truly..

I wish The Cheesecake Factory would open up a franchise here in KL one fine day..

Happy 2nd Birthday Lil Explorer!

Yup. The most loved Faheem Darwish just hit 2 years old today!




Those happy faces were taken 2 days before the 13th December,
during our routine groceries shopping on Sunday.

And this is the birthday wish from momma!


I'm so sorry dear Faheem. Mama is so running out of time these days, the workload is driving me crazy and the fatigues are cracking my body =/ I'm not able to make up such a sweetly lovey dovey entry for your special day today. But I promise you darling, everything will turn out back as the good old days once papa is back from the states ok. He has so many surprises for you my boy. Pls pls be good, and just wait patiently for mama at the lobby in a few minutes time ok. Kite dinner dengan atok, nenek and your cousins too!
I'm thinking of Secret Recipe, but nenek told me few days back that she wished to have satay.. So kiddo, kite pegi Satay Kajang dulu ok, this coming weekend mak long datang kite pegi somewhere else more special pulak. Hugs!


Happy Birthday once again my love!

Pediasure Special Redemption

Yet another text msg from Mr. Abbot. Well well.. Currently our scoop collection is nearly 40 pieces. It's pretty hard to gain rapidly more within a few months since we tend to purchase the biggest can (1.8kg) - more economical obviously. 4 cans each month that equals to 48 scoops per year? So it seems that we will only be able to do so by the end of next year? Hoho. Itu pun if we're still in the country lah..

I wonder how much would the formula costs us at the first world countries. Is it gonna be cheaper or more compare to what we've been dealing here. Dear husband if you are reading this, please make a price survey when ever you're going out for groceries. Or else dearest Faheem will be settled down with fresh milk instead, or momma's milk!

Well if the supply is sufficient enough for an infant and a toddler. Amin

The most heartwrenching events in my motherhood journey.

I have two of them. The first one was - Faheem stumbled on the floor when my lil sis was feeding him some bread. He was 18 months plus that time if I'm not mistaken, nearly half of the teeth were already in placed - that explained the bloooooodddd on his lips and pajama! ='( Both lips were cut by the impact from his teeth and tiles. Luckily there's no scar to the lips and the doctor told us that no suture is recommended since the blood had stopped flowing when we reached the clinic.

Pheww.. We don't have any idea how the incident happened. There's nothing blocking his feet and the floor wasn't slippery at all. He walked, he slipped by himself and he fell. I can still remember vividly his loud cry and the blood (banyak amat) all over his his mouth and on my kaften! Pergi clinic pun belasah je pakai kaften dgn slipper jepon sebab da panic sangat time tu.. Hee.. Tho the incident might looked devastating as I witnessed it and as I wrote it here, he actually stopped crying few minutes later and he had his milk with no signs of pain at all. Alhamdulillah.. Super Kid!

The second incident just happened 4 days ago. No more bloody incident. But it's a fractured bone! Goshh.. I've just performed the Isya' prayer and I went out from the room to check him out. He was playing happily with his cousins. I was a few steps behind when the poor little boy accidentally stepped on his fav toy (remember the red Ferrari at Colmar Tropicale?). He just slipped to the front at that instant. I ran to pick him up and he was crying (almost screaming) in so much pain, it was indescribable. He was crying out loud while looking fiercely into my eyes. I'm sure he was badly badly hurt. I hugged him tight and tried to caress the butt and ankles but what surprised me the most was - he repetitively told me that his right thigh was terribly in pain, not the ankles, the knee nor the butt. He was crying for almost one hour and then he fell asleep, he's too tired to continue crying I guess.

Few moments later my parents was back from Bangi and he suddenly woke up. And started whining saying that his right leg was in pain. I got myself changed, called few clinics and fortunately there was our fav GP on duty that night. "No bruises. No swollen areas". So the doctor claimed that he was just fine. Maybe the incident caused his thigh a muscle-pull etc. but nothing near to bones-related. I've experienced a terrible muscle-pull during my 3rd trimester on the previous pregnancy and I clearly understand how it feels. But knowing my boy all this while, he hardly cries when in pain. Jarang2 la menangis sebab sakit. But that incident mcm teruk sangat je die menjerit.. And that's awkward.

He finally went to sleep peacefully few hours later, when we reached home. But he woke up around 4am whining again and again while pointing to his right leg. I was so exhausted since he only wanted me to cuddle him, biasala da sakit2 camtu asyik nak dengan mama jela. Atok nenek nak dukung pun die refuse. I'm carrying him around the house with this bulgy tummy, trying my best to distract him from the pain. Macam nak pengsan dah. Around 6.30am he fell asleep once again on my shoulder. Ini sudah serious. Tak bole jadi ni.. There must be something wrong. I discussed with my parents then we decided to bring him to the orthopedist at Prince Court for further check up, x-ray etc.


The patient radiographer with the injured lil boy and his nanny..

And it turned out YES, his right tibia cracked! (It's not the fibula, but that longest and strongest leg bone instead, the shin). Oh dear.. Luckily the bones are still parallel with each other. The orthopedist suggested the orthopedic cast but me and his nanny refused it since we might be facing troubles while bathing him. And kids recover faster than the adults right. Moreover I don't think the doctor may apply the cast peacefully on him. Doctor nak buat clinical examination pun die meraung meronta2.. Ini nak suruh die stand still while the doctor is doing his job on his leg? No way..
The happy faces before seeing the orthopedist. Sayang sangat!

He was doing just fine when we went out from the doctor's room (He's a bit traumatised with doctors because whenever we took him to seek medical attention, the doctors will (well most of the time) use the spatula to check out his throat. And he hates it the most). He played with his toys, he laughed and he communicated with us as usual. But he refused to get up and walk. He will starts to whine when he accidentally forced the right leg while moving and then he senses the pain. And yesterday his granpa put him on his tricycle since he's screaming to get on it - his fav bike. So atok kesian sgt letak la die atas basikal tu, kayuh dengan sebelah kaki. Aduhaiiii Faheem...


Day 1: He played patiently on the sofa or on on the floor
Day 2: He screamed for help if he needs mobility from A to B
Day 3: He screamed to be on his tricycle. He can stand up now.
Day 4: He played his tricycle like always, but cycling with one foot. And he crawls like baby while playing with his cousins =( This is the most sadden part for me..

I really hope the lil explorer may recover his leg soonest possible. Kesian sangat tengok Faheem terpaksa duduk je atas sofa or tilam while playing with his toys and cousins. Atok, nenek and mama pun penat yang amat sangat sekarang sebab terpaksa dukung cucunda yang tah brape belas kilo tu untuk ke sana ke mari. Nak mandikan pun sorang kena pegang sorang lagi mandikan. Just can't wait for the husband to be back at home next month too. Just can't wait for 2012.. YaAllah, lindungilah keluarga kami dari segala musibah dan permudahkanlah segala urusan kami di dunia dan di akhirat. Sesunguhnya Engkaulah yang maha mendengar lagi maha mengasihani. Aminnn..
