Once There's One

Image
and now there are four of them~
Remember our Meow? A stray that somehow adopted us as her family?
She gave birth about a month ago to three kittens and suddenly went missing. Imagine our surprise to see her and her brood waiting right in front of our front door when we came home yesterday.
Meow came to us on two days before Chinese New Year, along with the kittens! Our neighbour was kind enough to provide some milk and cat food for the kitties before we got back.
Mommy got a box with some old clothes for the family to sleep in and they seemed quite settled, sleeping just outside the yard.
The family was gone yesterday and Mommy and Raimie were super worried.
But this morning we found out that the family felt that they are more comfortable settling under the hedge below our home. 
Well, actually Meow was waiting in front of our front door this morning waiting to be fed. Later we found out where the kittens were. I guess Meow and the family loves it here more. More space to run around,…

Kids Meal & Adult Portion

Image
You went into a restaurant with your child.
You ordered something from the menu, and something from the kids menu.
You were served accordingly but actually it was served wrongly. Mommy ordered this actually. From the Kids Meal. Cheesy Pizza.

This joint used to have ribs on the kids meal menu. No more now. :( Son had the adult's meal because he is a growing boy, after all. ;-) 
It's one of the new burgers on the "New Beginnings" menu. Nacho Lamb burgers.  Son was happy with it.

And this time, Son remarked that the staff were very friendly. Yup, they were and Mommy likes that. ^^

Daddy wasn't around this time. It was a lunch date for Mommy and Son. Occassionally, it's nice for him to spend some time with one parent instead of both.

Another Date At Gunung Nuang

Image
Son had a whole day UPSR camp on Sunday and both Zaini and I decided that it's a great time for us to tackle Gunung Nuang again. 
After sending Son to school for the pickup bus to bring him to the camp venue with the rest of the students who registered, we had our breakfast first, bought two Subway sandwiches for our lunch and proceeded to get to Pangsun in Hulu Langat for the start of our hike/walk.
We planned to hike longer this time, compared to our first time to Gunung Nuang, which I blogged here. This time, since Son's camp lasted till 6.00pm, we had like 8 hours for ourselves and we planned to spend it at Gunung Nuang! Dating. ;-)  At the entrance. We started our hike at 9.15am.
The day was sunny and dry, thank goodness. I would've had second thoughts if its not. 
We made it to the first river crossing in 1hour 09min. The first time we hiked up here, Blackie & Tweety (you gotta read my first post on our trip to Gunung Nuang) stopped us from proceeding further so…

You Wouldn't Know

You wouldn't know How much I love you If the years flow, We'll regret that wasted time

When I think about how I feel about him  I'm not really sure if I want to give my heart away  If it's love or just a game

At times when my heart was sad I probably seemed miserable Please call my name I'll be right here

My eyes are overflowing With my warm tears streaming Wipe away the pain of the heart you broke

You wouldn't know how much I love you Please come back to me Let your love flow

When I think about how I feel about him  I'm not really sure if I want to give my heart away  If it's love or just a game

My eyes are overflowing With my warm tears streaming Wipe away the pain of the heart you broke

You wouldn't know how much I love you Please come back to me Let your love flow Let your love flow
Sometimes it's just hard to love someone and realise the feeling are lessening from the other party or when they don't seem to care enough.

Get Togethers Nosh

Image
What's fun about get-togethers? Meeting friends. And most of the time, eating too! Cupcakes spotted at Malaysia Women Marathon press conference. But instead of gorging on these, some of us "attacked" their cheesecakes. Yummy yummy cheesecakes. I think I had 6 slices! Hahaha
You ladies signed up to run in Malaysia Women Marathon yet? It's on 16/3. If you haven't, hurry hurry. Some categories are already closed because it has the maximum participants already. Sudah full.
If you are joining, see you on March 16th. I'll  be there running at a tortoise speed. :-P
Another makan time, errr. I mean get-together. This time it's Malay food spread with the Watergate 16hour peeps Simple, yummy. I had two serving of rice with these.
Then... Remember I had a blogger get-together too? Dinner!

We went to Pasta Zanmai and these are what we had
 Son's dinner My dinner SK had this. The two kucings had these. They are small eaters! Anay was too fast for me. Only manage…

Ridding The Muck In The Bathroom With method

Image
OK, so I lied.
I promised some gory photos for the bathroom post. I just can't stomach gory bathroom photos to be published online! Muahaha
So you what you get here is "pseudo" clean bathroom that was cleaned by three awesome method products. method antibac toilet cleaner. They're blue! Ahahah
It's a disinfecting toilet bowl cleaner that depends on citric acid to eliminate bacteria and whatever "dirt" you managed to get in there.  method daily shower. Not for you to use while showering daily but to spray on wet surfaces after each shower. The lactic acid and corn-starch derived decyl glucoside will be busy dissolving and preventing soap scum and lime deposits after each mist you did.
It cleans without having to rinse. CATHCYYYY...
So I cheated. I didn't spray it immediately after my shower. I sprayed it before showering, while fully clothed! heh heh Don't want accidental "inappropriate" photos to be seen here. Ngeeeee... Remember the …

Get Togethers

Image
Last weekend's two public holidays meant more time to spend leisurely and with it, we had a few get-togethers with friends and family. 
Getting together with the people who were instrumental for Watergate 16 hour. They were kind enough to invite us along, just because Raimie "helped" out at CP2 that night.  Thank you for extending the invitation to the parents too. So paiseh lah get treated for lunch by these awesomely humble seasoned runners. ^^!
It was an enjoyable afternoon and we can't wait to join future events with this group; partipating or helping out. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of this. Welcomed a new addition to Zaini's clan. A baby boy! Zaini's younger bother and sis-in-law are now a proud parents of a baby boy (in addition of a daughter).
Two more boys in the family. My younger sister gave birth to a baby boy in September. ^^  Get-togethers at a press conference? Why not?
A great place to meet-up fellow runners.
Zaini and I actually…

I'm A Featured Blogger/Runner!

Image
At the popular Runwitme's Running with Passion blog. ^^ Thank you for giving the opportunity for me! ^^
So yeah, despite a rather uninspiring running history; I'm not fast, I don't run that far either - I was given the chance to share my stories to others.
Running do take me places. Not just taking me to the finish line but through it I meet lots of new friends and experience lots of new adventures.
Not to mention getting a few media exposure. *cough cough*
Who would've guessed we would be in : Jamie's Runner Profile
Mingguan Malaysia & Berita Harian Kosmo and on Live TV on Bella Segment, NTV7. ^^
What's in store for me and my family in 2014? 
It won't be hectic but I bet it'll be FUN!
JOM Lari!
p.s. sorry for this shamelessly narcissistic post of mine. Who else wanna promote me if not myself, right? Wakaka

Sight-Seeing To Our Historic City

Image
So... we went to Melaka last Saturday.
Daddy grumbled to Son that he had to drive 70 odd km just because Mommy wanted to run 21K!Hahaha Adoi. Yeah, Mommy wanted to run "just" 21K at Skyhawk Nature Run last Sunday.
Didn't plan anything special to sightsee on Saturday so we decided to go all touristy and visited Bandar Melaka. We parked our car somewhere near the Melaka Pirate Park and started our walk.
Strolling along the river bank watching river cruises pass by and occasionally going up to street level to check out the "activities" there.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the MELAKA TREE! As Malaysians, you all know the story about Parameswara and the founding of Melaka, right? ^^
Street level.

Red building so we know we are close to :
Massive tourists crowd, a renovation in progress + two local production shooting = stifling area.

The Stadthuys is currently under renovation and was covered in scaffolding and cloth (not to mention a whole lot of stalls selling…
