My CNY Holiday

This is long overdue...

As some of you may have known, I had spent my Chinese New Year (CNY) holiday all around the East Coast of Malaysia. This was because one of Mommy's cousin got married to a Kelantanese and they had their wedding on the 2nd day of CNY.

We started our journey on Wednesday, 2nd of January morning. I had to wake up early that morning to get ready. As soon as we're ready, we all jumped into the car. Tok Abah was driving.


On the way, we stopped at a McDonalds on the highway for breakfast.


After that, we continued our journey.


Our first destination was a resort owned by the company Ayah Ngah works for.
He had made the bookings for us about a week before our trip.


We had a bungalow all to ourselves.


That night, everyone was tired so we went to the nearest mall and had dinner there. I had pasta and warm milk and it was delicious.


The next morning, we walked over to the resort's cafe to have our breakfast. I went in my pyjamas.


And we met Mak Lel, her brother and his family there too. They too were going on a holiday trip and decided to stay the night there.


After breakfast we packed and got ready to continue our journey. Next destination - Kuala Terengganu. At the gallery where they sell the famous Malaysian Batik and silk we met up with the rest of the troops - Nek Wan and gang. They went ahead after that to another shop while we had our lunch by the river.




After lunch we were all set to head straight to our final destination, Kelantan. It was another loooong journey and I slept most of the time.
Over there we checked in at a hotel Tok Abah had booked prior to our trip.


Tok Noor and Tok Uda were there too along with their family.


That night, Tok Abah took us all out for dinner at a place called Tarbush but Tok Jah had secretly asked Tok Noor to pay for everyone.
So, dinner was on them. Thank you Tok Noor and Tok Jah!



Next morning, after breakfast we headed to a very close friend of Tok Mama's family, Wan Ani and Tok Amin's house about a half an hour's drive from our hotel. That afternoon, Mommy's cousin, Pak Long Ayush were to have his solemnisation ceremony with his new bride, Aunty Yan. Pak Su was his Best Man.



The solemnisation ceremony went smoothly. The reception was held the next morning.




Immediately after the reception ceremony, we headed straight back to KL because Tok Mama had to catch a flight to Frankfurt the next day.


We had a short stop over at Primula Beach Resort, Kuala Terengganu where everybody else was staying the night before continuing on their journey back.





After that, Tok Abah drove all the way back to KL and it took us nearly 10 hours to reach KL because of the bad traffic jams along the way.

All in all, it was a very tiring, hectic yet fun-filled holiday for all of us.

The Ram and the Rat are in me..

I was born on the 10th of April so that makes me an Aries, just like both my grandmas.
This is what I found on Aries babies on the internet:
Get ready for the ride of your life this little soul is a powerhouse of energy and talents. Active is the keyword, and fearless too, so remove tall objects once climbing is mastered or attach a bungee cord for safety's sake. Innate confidence and natural leadership abilities can lead to success in a myriad of fields. Discipline is needed, but not so firm that it breaks her spirit.

And here's another one: The Rambo of the play group has arrived! 

With an Aries baby around, you can expect lots of action and activity in your midst. Don't expect this tot to sit still with a rattle -- it just won't happen. The Aries baby is one who makes a lot of noise and will definitely be heard. There's really no choice! 

As a Fire sign, the little Ram will be dynamic and always up to something. Will this be a tough baby to deal with? More than likely. To that end, parents would be wise to show this child how to work with other babies early on. Things such as sharing won't come naturally, they must be learned. Even where siblings are concerned, the Aries child won't be a walk in the park.

What the Aries baby may want most of all, however, is attention, so parents be well advised. In a play setting, the Aries tot will easily get the attention of others on their own. This baby will also start many things early, the better to get to the finish line, so to speak, in a hurry. 

To sum up, the Arian baby can be quite independent but enjoys interacting with others. This baby is a fairly physical child and craves constant stimulation. They will be ready from day one!

According to Mommy, I'm everything like the description above, although the fearless part is not really showing at the moment. Ok, ok... I might be quite a challenge sometimes but isn't that supposed to be good? It shows, that I have a strong head on my shoulders, right?

'Strong Head'

Anyway, Arians are born anytime between March 19th to April 20th (more or less) and the symbol for Aries is The Ram.



However, the year I was born, 2008, was the year of the Rat, according to Chinese horoscope. Apparently, I am an Earth Rat, although I'm not entirely sure on how you determine that.


So according to the Chinese horoscope I love to be loved and cuddled. Rat babies tend to depend tremendously on their parents, but later in life they develop natural leadership qualities. During their baby years, Rats mature slowly, but gain momentum as they become toddlers. Eventually, they begin to exhibit active mentalities, so, in the early years, plenty of sleep is necessary (no wonder!).




In school, the young Rats are eager to learn. It is then, too, that Rats begin collecting things, and like to fill their bedrooms with pebbles, shells and keepsakes of every kind (oh my, Mommy's gonna have a headache!). Generally, young Rats are smart little people who are artistic and literary students.



Showing off my artistic abilities..

They are well-rounded and many of them do well in sports, too. Being born in the first sign of the Chinese horoscope motivates these children to be pioneers and gives them a need to be first in line.

My sporting ability recently @ the Family Trip! :)

So, I don't know how Rams and Rats are supposed to connect and neither do I know whether I'm more of a Ram, a Rat or both equally (or if that is even possible?). Last year, it was the year of the Tiger, Tok Abah's year.

This year, when Chinese New Year comes, it's going to be the year of the Rabbit - Tok Mama's year!


It's a long way to go to another year of the Rat.

Whatever it is, I guess I am a perfect example of a RamRat!

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.

My pictures during games;





Me 'posing' with my cousins during prize giving ceremony;





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! ;)
