HAPPY 2011!! Ending 2010 with a FireFly family trip..

Hi everyone! Happy New Year!
How's 2011 looking so far?

So, I went back to school on Monday. After more than a week of holiday, honestly, I really didn't feel like going back to school. Tried my luck telling Mommy that I didn't want to go to school on Monday morning but she said that I had to and she and Dadda had to go to work. So, with a heavy heart, I let her carry me to the car and Dadda sent me to school.

I wonder if my friends felt the same too. Or were they excited having to go back to school after such a long holiday? I was happy once I was in school though, because all my friends were already there. Some of them stopped coming to school once the official school holiday started more than a month ago. Even my headmistress, Teacher Zana, who went on confinement leave since about 2 months ago was finally back.

Owh, I actually wanted to tell you about my holiday trip. We went to see fireflies with Dadda's family (the usual annual PJ Family Trip).
We went on the 26th of December. On the way there, we stopped by at a place called Bukit Melawati to check out some historical sites.
We had to take a train ride up the hill. Once we reached at the top, we went to visit the museum there.
After that we played with some monkeys while waiting for the train back down.







After lunch, we continued our journey to the hotel and rested for a while. That night, after dinner, we went on the boatride to watch some fireflies. There's only one kind of tree that the fireflies like and you can find this tree along the river, all the way for about 28km apparently. It was such a beautiful sight. Imagine Christmas trees all along the river banks and they go on for as far as your eyes can take you.

The place where we stayed & watched the Fireflies;




The boatman then purposely took our boat near one of the trees and brushed the leaves gently. All the fireflies started flying around us and some came into the boat and on our hands and palms. We were all laughing excitedly. Some even followed us back to the dock. When we finally went back to our rooms, freshened up and changed into our pyjamas, I sat and watched Mommy, Dadda, Tia, CuNa, CheAh, Ayah Ngah, Abang Iky and Kak Miza played a game called Taboo until it was time to sleep.

The next morning, after breakfast, it was time to play games. We started off with Ayah De's game which was kinda like the Amazing Race.
There were 3 games for kids which I took part and got 2nd place in 2 out of the 3 games played.
One was a puppet game and the other was carrying a ping pong ball in a spoon game.

Oh yeah, we were the overall CHAMPION! :)

We checked out at around 2pm and had lunch at KFC on the way back.
That night, Che Ah treated us to some pizzas in PJ.

I'm sure you can tell that I had a great holiday and that was the reason why I wasn't really keen on going back to school, hehehe...

p/s: there were sooo many great pictures from our family trip, the next post I will let you feast your eyes on them one by one! ;)

Eid-ul-Adha &; ehem ehem... shh...

It seems like I'm only talking about Eids here. I'm so busy nowadays that I could only talk about big events right now (yeah, right!).

Anyway, of course, Eid-ul-Adha came and went. I'm sure you know that I'm going to say it was fantastic and all that but the truth is, I've had better ones. Eid, that is.


Helping out Mama melapah daging.. Help 'tengok' ajer..

This year, Eid-ul-Adha fell in the middle of the week on a Wednesday. That made it difficult for us to go anywhere unless Mommy and Dadda took extra leave days, which they didn't. So, we went back to PJ and celebrate Eid with Mama and Papa. I did however got to see the korban at the mosque after the Eid prayer.


With Mama & Papa at the masjid where they had the ibadah korban.

So, enough about Eid. I've news to tell you! I heard that Tok Abah and Tok Mama are planning another umrah trip and Mommy has asked Dadda if she could go along. And guess what? She plans to take ME along! Oui, MOI! How exciting is that? Anyway, it's still a plan and nothing has been booked yet so I'm not gonna talk about it and jinx it.

But I'm really excited! That'll be another plane trip! Woohoo!

Will keep you updated.

p/s: Dadda also was fortunate to go through the Hajj experience back in 2006/07. Check out the album here!

Eid-ul-Fitri 2010

Yes, yes... I know Syawal month came and went. I was just too busy attending all the open houses and weddings and other events. You know how it's like.

So, to sum everything up in a not-so-draggy post, I'll just let you feast your eyes on the photos we took during the month of Syawal.

This Eid, we spent our first day in Tok Mama's hometown in Rembau. On the eve of Eid everyone worked together to prepare some traditional food. They're a must for every Eid and have to be done according to Nek Wan's specification too! - Ketupat and Lemang.


Tok Uda was the one who had to look after the Lemangs since everyone was late (we also arrived later that night, after the Takbir at PJ)


The morning of Eid, Mommy and I got up and got ready as soon as the rest of the family left for Eid prayers.


When everyone came back from prayers, we gathered and took some pictures together in our red outfits (it's our theme colour this year).





Nana Belle gave this to me when we visited her in Scotland in April.

and Pak Su giving me a money packet.

Then, we went and visit a few relatives...




The next day, we went to Aunty Huda's house in Muar.


It is normal to have 'open houses' throughout the month of Syawal and we are encouraged to visit friends, old and new in this month too. So, we went to some relatives and friends' houses, especially ones that we don't get to meet often.

The first house we went in KL was Cu Jeed's house.


Her mom cooked and we tried Cu Jeed's kuih raya.



We also went to Aunty Abby's house in Putra Heights


and Tok Mae's


and Uncle Rosh's


and Aunty Ciah's (she did her daughter's birthday celebration too)


and finally, Uncle Ded's in Tropicana.


On top af all that, we also held our open house at Tok Abah's place in Subang Permai.

Did we have a good Syawal?
Yes, we did. We had a GREAT Syawal!
Hope you all did too!
