More Of School Holiday

Raimie has a few projects on for this short school holiday. We got him this for him to "excavate", pretend to be an archaeologist and assemble it too.

This boy used to love dinosaurs and stuff and we've got lots of books on them since he was one! All sorts of pre-historic animals for him to learn about. He's got lots of interests now, other than dinosaurs. Luckily, girls is not one of them yet. wakaka
He also wanted to buy the Young Samurai books, but Mommy and Daddy made a deal with him. Finish this book over the weekend (trust Mommy to thrust one of Enid Blyton's book to him. heh heh), summarise it and we'll talk about buying those books. 

One book now cost RM19.90! When Mommy was his age,a Secret Seven book only cost RM6.90! huk huk huk. Those Young Samurai books that Raimie wanted, they cost RM35.00! Mommy is so gonna be bankrupt. Muahaha
We had a picnic at Lake Garden on Thursday, after Mommy's run. Mommy needed to do some hill repeats so she suggested everyone to brave the jam to get there. 

Daddy is all gung-ho and supportive about eating healthier (and Mommy needs to carbo-load for her marathon next week) so we had a picnic at the park.

Notice that we used not Tupperware or disposables for our picnic? Now, that's what I call picnicking in style. Using Corningware and hotel grade Royal Porcelain. wakaka
Healthy dinner of pasta cooked with lots of veges and a dash of lemon, served with grilled chicken and blanched broccoli on the side.

Daddy said he's cooking beef stew tomorrow! Yeay!
and not so healthy dinner, the night before but in line with Mommy's carbo-loading needs : dry pan mee. Plus air mata kucing to quench the thirst.

Friday is the last weekday of this school holiday week. My... time sure flies. 

Raimie wants to visit KL Tower to meet up with Gempak Starz people and buy one of their comics that is not in market yet... we'll see how that goes, yeah.

Anyway, he'll tag along when Mommy goes over for her Saturday run at Padang Merbok this weekend. So, who knows? We might end up going to KL Tower.

By the way, do you know that there is a "brisk walk" event with the KL Mayor this Saturday at Lake Garden. Who wanna join? ;p

  3. The words "Secret Seven" really made me smile. That brought me down memory lane. I only had Enid Blyton books to read when young. Anay's young days hardly had story books for kids, not even LEGO sets. So boring lah, so we lari padang, main layang and kena kejar by anjing gila. Muahahahaha

    2. lina, me too. I am kiasu also. I read to my babies when they were still in my womb. May be that explained why they both love books more than their mummy now.

      Actually it is never too young to start anything.

    1. After watching that recent KBS show on actors doing recycling, I might stop using the restaurants' plastic boxes or foams for take aways since I eat out or takeaway almost every meal. Need to sayang our environment and not throw so much rubbish lah!

      You did the right thing to cart along your Kerabat Pingan Mankuks! I "like"....

    2. Oh yes, the KBS show "The Human Condition" really open up my eyes about caring for the environment.

    3. You two fellas have got many inspirations to love the environment from KBS drama. Thumbs up!

    4. It's not a drama. It is a variety/documentary and how 6 KBS comedian would spend a week together, completing different challenges or missions each week.

      The missions each week is seeing how we would survive without some modern necessities.

      First week was living without handphone.

      2 weeks ago, it was minimising waste, even food waste. This week is living without cars.

      It is a very enlightening program. :-)

  12. I'm so glad that kids are still reading Enid Blyton. That woman RULES, and I don't care how many liberals/conservatives get their knickers in a knot because her books are racist and promote gay love and heaven knows what else.

    Gorgeous food photos. Yes, Ru actually said that! ;p

    1. I'm a jungle woman. PC is not in my vocab. :-D

      Oh hell, Sherlock Holmes & Watson had been accused as gay.

      I bet the same people against Enid Blyton have serious knotty issues on Prince Bumpo or the Oompa-Loompas.

      Thank goodness I grew up b4 all this nonsense came up & still managed to read to original version and make my own decision about the book and its racist content... as a 10y.o.

      Food & food photo credit goes to the hubby. :-)
