Fun Weekend in Port Dickson

On Saturday, the 21st of February, I went for a holiday in Port Dickson with Mommy, Dadda and Mommy's colleagues from Sinar FM. At around 1pm, we checked in at Desa Lagoon Resort, PD. We were treated to a light refreshment at the cafe once we arrived.




Just arrived, a bit groggy from sleeping all the way to PD. Look at the flower on my ear!

After that, we headed straight to our room which was at the 2nd floor, not far from the lobby. It had a great view of the swimming pool. We rested for a while, I had a short nap. At 4pm, some of Mommy's colleagues and their kids were already jumping into the pool although it was hot. We watched from our balcony, contemplating on whether or not to join them.


In our huge room, got Panasonic Viera LCD TV tau!

An hour later, Mommy decided that it's time to take me to the pool since it wasn't really hot anymore. Mommy was afraid that the sun was too much for me although she'd brought my sunblock along. So, Mommy changed me into my swimsuit and covered my whole body and face with sunblock before she and Dadda got ready to take me down to the pool.

At the pool, Mommy's friends were delighted to see us. I had my Mambo float with me and everybody liked it and thought that I looked cute using it. There were other kids swimming with me too. We enjoyed ourselves in the pool since there were no other guests there except us and Mommy's friends and their families. Mommy talked to her friends while I swam with Dadda.


After a while, we decided to proceed to the sea. It wasn't my first time to the sea. If you've read my writings earlier, I did say that I didn't quite like the sand. Well, I still don't. I clung to Mommy when she sat on the sand at the beach. I enjoyed myself when she carried me in the sea, though. Dadda went on the banana boat with some of Mommy's friends.


I love swmming in the sea....!


Salt water getting into my eyes!!! hmmm, salty!

Mommy had wanted to go but somebody had to stay with me, right? She waited for Dadda to come back but nobody else wanted to go after that. So, in the end she didn't go. Since I didn't like the sand and had refused to walk, stand or sit on the sand, Mommy and Dadda decided to take me back to the pool. This time, we went in the jacuzzi. After sometime, the others came and joined us. We stayed there until 7pm.

I can't stand the sand, so Mommy had to pick me up! hehe..


After Maghrib prayers we went down for dinner. I slept after my shower and was still asleep in my stroller when we went down. Mommy and Dadda had time to eat a little before I eventually woke up. Mommy then took some pasta for me and she also brought along my porridge she cooked from home.

After dinner we exchanged gifts. We were told to buy a gift that costs around RM20 each (family). We got a clock from Mommy's colleague, Uncle Zaidi. Our gift went to Uncle Shah.


With Auntie Abby Fana! Kellas gitu!

With Mommy's boss - Pak Tam.. Scary huh?

After the gifts exchange ceremony, there was a Karaoke session. They passed along the songlists to everyone and Mommy's colleagues started singing one by one. Mommy and Dadda sang too. They did a duet first and later Mommy took turns singing a couple more. I joined in the fun too and I was clapping my hands non-stop!


Karaoke time!! Not a duet, but a triplet?

At around midnight we left the room and went back to our room because I was already tired. I fell asleep right away. Mommy tucked me in and she and Dadda watched some TV before retiring too.

The next morning I had to be woken up for breakfast. Boy, was I tired! Hehe... I was still half asleep when Mommy and Dadda were eating and talking to their friends. Some of Mommy's friends and their kids went back to the pool after the meal. We on the other hand, went back to the room to rest. Mommy and Dadda discussed about taking me back to the pool but in the end they didn't because Mommy thought I was so tired and sleepy.

True to what she thought, I did go back to sleep once we went back to our room. At around noon, Mommy started packing while Dadda had his shower. After Dadda had his shower, Mommy woke me up and bathed me. She let me play awhile in the bathtub since I didn't get to go to the pool like the rest after breakfast. When she finally got me ready, it was Dadda's turn to play with me while Mommy had her shower.


Around 2.30pm, we went to the lobby to check-out. Before everyone left, we gathered to take a group photo. On the way back, we stopped by Atuk Long's house in Bukit Chedang, Seremban to drop off Mak Lang Nur's wedding and going-away present. We finally reached home at 7pm but went back out to IKEA with Aunty Huda where we met Atuk Long, Mak Lang Nur and Uncle Wan Zul, again.


It was indeed a tiring but exciting weekend for all of us especially ME! I'm definitely looking forward for another holiday!

Mak Lang Nur's wedding...

On the 13th and 14th of February I went to Seremban to attend Mommy's cousin, Mak Lang Nur's wedding to Uncle Wan Zul. Both Mommy and Dadda took leave on Friday the 13th so that we wouldn't have to rush to Seremban after work.


This was taken a week before the wedding during the preparation! I'm 'helping' out putting papers in the souvenir box!

After Friday prayer we took off to Seremban in 1 car and Tom Mama and PakSu Ami in another. Tok Abah couldn't go because he had his lecture. When we arrived in Seremban, everybody was busy preparing the house, room, living room and souvenirs. We headed to Atuk Ngah Man's house just next door to Atuk Long's house in Bukit Chedang to get ready. Tok Mama, PakSu Ami, Wan Teh and Wan Ki got ready there too.

At around 9pm the ceremony started. It was the 'Bernikah' ceremony where they sort of get themselves 'registered'. The 'Tok Kadi' was quite funny, according to Mommy and Dadda. I just laughed whenever anyone or everyone laughed. Yes, I was quite noisy that night, hehe... was just trying to liven things up! Owh, I forgot to mention that Kak Alyssa was also there but she wasn't feeling very well. She was asleep by the time the ceremony took place.

With Auntie Aishah (Uncle Imal's gf :).. Takleh dok diam!


The happy couple after the akad...

After that, all guests proceeded outside for dinner. By then I was already quite tired and sleepy so I took a short nap after showing a teeny weeny bit of tantrum.


Sleeping with cousin Alyssa..

When I woke up, most guests have already left. Mommy fed me with some fruits while we took photos with Mak Lang Nur and Uncle Wan Zul. We retired at Atuk Ngah's house not long after that, at around midnight.


All of us with the happy couple, Mak Lang Nureliza & Pak Lang Wan Zul..

The next morning I woke up later than others, around 10am. Mommy bathed me and Dadda took me next door to Atuk Long's house for breakfast while Mommy had her shower. We then sat and watch TV while I played with Pak Ngah Iwan. After Zohor prayers, Dadda, Mommy and I went to the hotel in Seremban town to check-in. The wedding reception was to be held there, in the ballroom of Royale Bintang Hotel.


Yeaaaayyy, I'm happy to be on my big bed in the hotel!

The room was quite nice. We got a room with a connecting door to Tok Mama and Tok Abah's room next to us. Tok Mama, Tok Abah and PakSu Ami arrived later in the afternoon because Tok Mama and PakSu went back to Subang after the nikah the night before. Originally, they were supposed to come back in the morning but apparently, one of Tok Mama's close friends passed away that morning so Tok Mama went for the funeral before coming back to Seremban.

While waiting for them to arrive, Mommy and Dadda had their lunch while I crawled around the two bedrooms, exploring! It had quite a nice view of the rest of the hotel so most of the time I spent sitting near the glass window, looking out into the garden of the hotel.


With Mak Lel who just arrived...

After awhile Aunty Huda and Mak Lel arrived and after everyone excluding me had performed their Asar prayer, Mommy, Aunty Huda, Mak Lel and I went down to check the ballroom out. Then, we went outside to the pool area where there were people swimming. Near the pool, next to the spa, there was a playground. I went on the see-saw and slide. Too bad there weren't any swings for I would've loved to go on it.

I know I'm supposed to go down the slide, but for it's more challenging climbing up the slide!

Mommy didn't bring my swimsuit so I didn't get to swim in the pool but I did get to sit by the pool playing with the water with my feet, though. Dadda came down to join us later on for a wee while before going back up to the room to get ready. By the time we got back to the room, Tok Abah, Tok Mama and PakSu Ami have arrived.


Mommy, where's my bathing suit.. I wanna swim!

After Maghrib prayer, when all of us were ready, Mommy took me down in my stroller. By then, Papa, Mama and Ayah Ngah have also arrived and they came up to our room for Maghrib prayers too. Downstairs, guests have filled the ballroom before the VIPs including Yang Dipertua Negeri Sembilan and all the 'Undangs' arrived.


Look at me wearing a silver baju kurung with bling2x.. Us with Papa & Mama

Mommy fed me with a bottle of milk and I fell asleep. I was sure Mommy and Dadda were quite relieved that I was asleep almost throughout the ceremony. That gave them ample time to have dinner and mingle with the guests. In other words, I was very well behaved that night, hehe...


My wedding reception dinner..


Kenyang perut, tidur lagi.. Slept through the whole merenjis ceremony!

When I woke up, the event was almost over. Guests were already queueing up to say their well wishes to the bride and groom and their parents. We stayed back for a photo session with the huge family. I met a lot of friends and relatives during the farewells and photo shoots. They all thought I looked gorgeous in my silver 'baju kurung'. I'm sure Mommy and Dadda were very proud of me. Finally after the photo session that took about an hour to wrap up, we went up to the room around midnight and got ready for bed.


Awake now.. In front of the elegant pelamin!

The next morning I had to be forced to wake up for breakfast by Mommy and Dadda. When we went down for breakfast, everyone was already finishing up with their food. I was only half awake. I think Mommy and Dadda were also tired because instead of hanging out around the pool like everyone else after breakfast, they took me up to the room where I managed to get more sleep while they pack. At noon, we checked out and went back home.

Hey, I want this!...

All in all, it was an interesting weekend for me. We're still waiting for Mak Lang to show us photos from the professional photographer from those nights. I'll be attending more weddings this year. I'll keep you updated.

SELAMAT PENGANTIN BARU TO MAK LANG NUR & PAK LANG WAN ZUL!

I want TheLilCaliph goodies!

I'll be turning 10 months soon and I feel I deserve a gift or goodies for all my cheeky naughty good behaviour all this while.

So, when browsing for goodies, I stumbled upon this cool online Malaysian store specialising in baby stuff called The Lil Caliph!



What's The Lil Caliph you may asked? Well, Caliph (according to Wikipedia) is an Arabic word that generally means leader or head of state. And hence, the store uses this name to represent the future leaders, like myself.. Yes, I am a Lil Caliph! :)


Look Mommy, I'm a Lil Caliph!


Anyway, the store have sooo many goodies for Mommy & me! These are categorised neatly on the left side of their website such as Toys&Games, Mother Care, Baby Bags and Travel Companion!

Furthermore, Dadda's friends, Auntie Mas and Uncle Johan both just had their newborn baby girl and baby boy respectively, so
The Lil Caliph will be the perfect place to find a gift for my new lil friends!

So, what should we get them? And what will be the perfect gift for me?

There are soo many cool choices available at TheLilCaliph (TLC for short). For example, I saw this plush tiger toy called Taj The Tiger that Ayahde might really love (since they just came back from the zoo and Ayahde is crazy about tigers)



Hmmm, that makes me wonder, when will Dadda & Mommy bring me to the Zoo? I guess maybe when I can walk too, which I hope soon coz I can already easily stand & dance to the music!

Back to TheLilCaliph website, you can also select your goodies through the Manufacturers! Say you always love products from Fisher-Price, then just select those and Walla! -- You will be on the page that sorts all Fisher-Price goodies. It's sooo user-friendly and innovative!

What more, you also get free shipping for orders more than RM200!



But, the reason I love the site soo much is because I can actually reward my Mommy & Dadda with a holiday of a lifetime!



Of course, this is my first entry to the contest, and if I blog more about TheLilCaliph, then the chances for me to reward Mommy & Dadda with a trip to Phuket & Bali will be higher! They surely deserves it after putting up with my theatrics for 10 months..!

So, would you help me in my quest? Help spread the words around about this entry and also leave a comment...!

Hmmm, maybe I can also get gifts for all the February babies in our family like Papa, Mak Lel, Auntie Alma, Iky & Uncle Nuor from TheLilCaliph!

Cheerios!

Make sure you read this too!
