3 Parties and a Holiday

There were so many things happened in the month of October that kept me well occupied but then you must have already known by now that I lead a very busy life, haven't you?

On the 5th of October I attended two parties. First was cousin Aimar's birthday party at the McDonald's near Kidzania. We played at the play area, had our own McDonald's Happy Meal with our own crowns and played games. I hung out with Nadhrah most of the time while Aimar had some of his friends over for the party too. Idzhar just enjoyed running around everyone since he didn't really understand how to play the games.

From Aimar's party we rushed over to Subang Jaya for Natasha's birthday party. Natasha is mommy's friend, Aunty Shaly's daughter. They live in the UK and are now back here for a few months because Aunty Shaly's pregnant and wanted to give birth here (she'd already gave birth to a cute little boy when I finally sat down and wrote this). Plus, her husband, Uncle Jaimie is away working in another country. So, Natasha got to celebrate her birthday here and we got to celebrate it with her. 

Natasha's party was a happening one too. It had a bouncy castle for us to jump in and a room where we could play with Play-Dohs while watching our favourite cartoons. Outside, there was a candy table where we could have all the candies we wanted (well, not all since mommy was there to monitor).

That was a long, tiring but fun-filled day for both Idzhar and I. 

On the 19th of October however, two Saturdays after that, we had our own party in Subang Permai to celebrate Idzhar's 2nd birthday. Since Idzhar didn't get to have his own party last year for his 1st birthday as Tok Abah and Tok Mama were away for hajj, mommy and dadda decided to throw a real one this time.

Mommy rented a bouncy castle from Aunty Shaly's contact for the party too but we chose a different and slightly bigger one since we had a little bit more space. 

Idzhar's party theme was Spiderman so he had a Spiderman cake and party packs with lots of goodies inside. It rained for a bit in the afternoon but stopped just in time as the party was about to start. It was obvious that Idzhar was really happy with his party since he couldn't stop grinning even late at night after everyone had left and was still smiling the next day. He refused to sleep at his usual bedtime that night although he didn't sleep at all during the day. 

So, after we got all the birthday parties out of the way, we finally went for a short getaway with Adida and Mak Lel to Desaru, Johor (south part of Malaysia).

That was another fun-filled holiday!

We stayed at a hotel named Lotus in Desaru which Adida had booked a few months ago. We had a 3-bedroom apartment all to ourselves. The hotel was a very exciting one. It had its own water park, clubhouse, garden, arcade, swimming pools, spa and beach. They also have interesting activities like tele-matches, water sports, line dancing, fireworks displays, karaoke and others.

We arrived late the first day so we just rested after the long drive. The next day, while Dadda decided to explore some golf venues around Johor, the rest of us started our day with the beach. The hotel was huge so they had buggies transporting us wherever we go. As usual, Idzhar and I were always well prepared and equipped with our sandcastle-making-sand-playing accessories. Mommy and Adida decided to dive right into the sea while Mak Lel played with us.

After it got too hot, we decided to move to the water park. We took the buggy to get to the water park. I gotta tell you that we loved the buggy rides!

Around noon we went back to the room to shower and rest a little. While waiting for Dadda to come back and have lunch with us we took the buggy again to the park. We just sat on the grass facing the beach and ate ice cream. Mommy bought bubbles for us to play with too.

We went back to the beach and pool that late afternoon, this time with Dadda too. That night, we went out to have dinner at a restaurant called Marybrown. When we went back to the hotel, we went straight to the park to join the activities there. Mommy, Adida and Mak Lel went for the line dancing so I tagged along too. It was quite the exercise I must say. We then hung around a little and then went back to the room to retire.

The next day, mommy woke us up quite early. We got ready and dadda drove all of us straight to the train station in Johor Bahru. There we took a train to Singapore. Idzhar and I were so excited to be going on our first train ride. Although it was a really short ride, we had real fun.

In Singapore, we took the bus and the MRT to numerous places. The first thing we did when we arrived was to look for a place to eat. After that, we took the MRT to Orchard road to meet up with Uncle Nuar. He was already there the day before for a show. We walked along Orchard road going in and out of malls and when we finally got tired, we stopped for a drink.

At the end of the day we took the train back to JB and after dinner with some of Dadda's friends in JB, we drove back to Desaru. The next day, we drove back to KL.

So, that was my month of October. Hope you all had a wonderful October too. Will keep you updated with more activities soon.
