Eugene is 11

On Eugene's birthday, hubby took a day off to spend time with them.

In the afternoon, while I am at work, they went to TGV to watch Lego Ninjago.

Just look at those happy faces..

For dinner, we went to Bella Italia, Eugene loves the risotto there.

For his cake, we bought a chocolate cake from Komugi, so good, not too 'heavy'.
 

Happy Birthday my boy, big boy now, we love you.

Lian June Cafe, BDC

Our 1st time here.

Kedai ni selalu penuh, kita pun nak cuba jugak kan. 
Kami order mee kolok yang ni.
Rasanya agak mild, tak rasa masin, ajinomoto pun kurang. Isi udang, ikan dan babi nya sangat fresh. Sebab tu kot orang suka.
Tapi Eugene tak suka la pulak, dia prefer mee kolo original dengan sos merah.

Opening hour: 6.30am - 12.30pm
Location according to Google Map: Lot 945-944, Jalan Stutong, BDC Commercial Centre, Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia

Maludam National Park

I had an opportunity to visit Maludam National Park last month.

I believe not many know about this place, even I had to search on Google Maps to see the location when I got the assignment :)

Maludam National Park covers an area of 432 square kilometres (167 sq mi) make it the second largest park in Sarawak. It is located in the Maludam Peninsula and consists entirely of low-lying, flat peat swamp forest. source: https://sarawaktourism.com/attraction/maludam-national-park/

Eugene's Sketches #1

Eugene ni jarang melukis, kalau dia melukis pun sorok-sorok, hasilnya pun tersangat la comel, perlu guna kanta pembesar untuk menghargai lukisan dia.

Emmett says he is a big fan of his brother's sketches.

So here's my 1st posting on Eugene's sketches, it's a comic btw (according to him).
Title: If we were in a zombie apocalypse

So what do we do?
Let's beat them up.
But how?

Lenny face
Stab him till dead! Stab him!
Stab him!
Back away slowly.

Ganas la jugak kan? I asked him what who is Lenny face, he said it's a meme.
hmmm.. I got a lot to catching-up to do.

In my shopping cart

Punyer la excited bila dapat tau yang Everrise akan mengadakan Mango Fair weekend lepas.

Sabtu, awal pagi kami dah ke Everrise BDC for mango hunt.  Alangkah kecewa bila tengok ni jer mango yang ada, marketing gimik betul.  Semua nampak macam Thailand or Fillipines mango je ni. Takda yang kemerahan langsung!

Datang nak cari mango jer pun, last-last banyak la pulak isi dalam shopping cart kite ni..


Ni jer pun dah lebih dari seratus ringgit, mane tak nyer, mango nan sebiji tu pun dah lebih sepuluh ringgit.
Ohh Malaysia Ku.

Jum layan video buah di Manila, melambak tau mango kat situ..

They just don't care

Emmett at 7 years 11 months.

Our conversation today after school.

Mummy: I am sure if you explain to your teachers, they will understand.
Emmett: But mum, they just don't care.
Mummy: So, you teachers are machines, they don't have feelings?
Emmett: Ya, they are like machines, they just have 3 mode, happy, sad, and mad.  But they are seldom happy, most of the time they are just mad, because we talk too much.

hmmmm

NAIA - The Ninoy Aquino International Airport

 Kecik je pun Terminal 3 NAIA ni.
Tapi yang best nyer, arrival hall passport checkout counter sangat efficient.
Souvenir shop kat depature hall sangat berpatutan.

Yang tak best nyer, departure hall passport check counter panjang giler, for international flight memang kena datang awal, more than the usual 3 hours.

Arrival hall, sampai-sampai je kite terus beli simcard ke, kite beli simcard for data jer, tak payah call time, 300peso for 7 days usage.
 Ini checkin counter area, nak masuk dalam airport ni kena tunjuk boarding pass, so make sure print boarding pass sebelum datang airport.
Ini dalam departure hall.


Lunch at school #1

Saya selalu la jugak lunch kat sekolah anak saya.

Sementara tunggu diorang keluar dari kelas, saya pun ambil kesempatan for a quick lunch.

Tapi kan.. saya rasa harga makanan kat kantin sekolah tu sangat la tidak berpatutan kot.
Kenapa ye?  Adakah sewa kantin sekolah sangat mahal?

Waima mahal, kite telan je la, nak jimat masa kan.


Lunch saya hari ini, RM4

Weekend and food

One of the best things about weekend is that you have all the time to think of where to eat and then you can slowly enjoy the food.

While (almost) everyone in Kuching is busy talking about and visiting Kuching Food Festival,  we, on the other hand, try to avoid those crowded places. We make it a point to visit the Food festival once a year, not more than that, kalau tak pergi pun takpe, too many people, too much food, sampai tak tau nak pilih ape da..

Ok, back to my food adventure, here's what we had during the weekend..

Saturday, breakfast at iCom Square, 38 Kopitiam.

Sarawak Laksa - RM6

Kolok Mee, the way Eugene liked it
 
Dinner, BBQ at kampung.

Sunday, breakfast at Green Height, Double Happiness Cafe.
Mee Sua

Kampua
Dinner at Vivacity, Sushi Zanmai.
 
 
 
Counting days to the next weekend.
