My Dad’s Birthday Surprise

30 10 2008

Last Friday was the last day of tests this year. It was SRK Damansara Utama’s PKSR IV and it was also my dad’s birthday. So, my mum decided to go to Johor Bahru, since it was his birthday and he was there because of a conference.

I’ll tell you the whole story about the weekend then :

At Friday, around 1220pm, my mum picked my up. She said ‘Let’s go to Johor and see Papa’. I was shocked – and surprised – by the idea. It was meant to surprise him, but I was surprised first by the idea. After a couple of hours packing and stuff, my aunty drove my mum and me to KL Sentral.

My mum bought some Economy Class stand-by tickets. Then, we bought the tickets to go to KLIA. Once the train stopped at KLIA, we got the next flight and went to gate A11. We boarded the flight at 1715hrs.

After less than an hour later, the journey stopped. It was quite a long walk to the bus station. But we managed to get the bus.

Apparently my mum thought the bus would stop nearer to the Puteri Pan Pacific, but to her surprise, it stopped further then she expected. The walk there was quite a while and tiring. But as soon as we walked into the lobby, the normal happy feeling came back.

I called my dad to say that we were already in the Johor Puteri Pan Pacific’s lobby and we sat down while we waited. When he came down and saw us, his face lit up immediately. My mum described the look as “a look she had not seen for a very long time“.

That evening, after my mum and I had showered and change into fresh clothes, my dad’s friends, Aunty Jazreen, Uncle Kenneth, Uncle Azlan and my parents and I had dinner together. We had fish, cuttlefish, sweet and sour prawns and fried kangkung with white rice – well , i had fried rice with egg.

Later, after some pictures and lots of talking, my parents and I went to Singapore. My dad wanted to stay there for the weekend. That was the end of the day.

Yeah, my writing’s become different right ? HAHA, but that day was different then others. I know its late but on behalf of that day, HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAPA !

Yay ! Raya !

27 09 2008

Hey people !

I apologize for not posting as I promised, apparently I’ve been busy with all the extra class my ‘sekolah agama’ had organized .

Anyway ,

Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri !

Raya always somehow remind me of the end-of-year holidays . Probably this might be the saddest yet , cause I’ll be leaving SKDU , where I’ve been suffering 6 years of homework . That also means that some of my friends have gone to international school .

This holiday also means that im finally going to be a TEEN ! No longer a pre-teen . Goodbye pre-teen world , Hel-lo TeenLand !

That also means that I’ll be goingย  to get ready for more homework ! What whatever . I’ll just tell the teacher “Yeah , Sure , Whatever . I’m too awesome for it ” . I know , I’ve changed and I’ve become more sarcastic and *’perasan-ning’ . It’s practically what we , Std 6’s do actually …….. Even if we go to school , we’ll just ‘lepak’ around the class and go with our “Hey , we’re almost teens . Lay off it !” attitude .

That’s what we do ! ๐Ÿ˜€

So , lastly , I’d like to say to those awesome dudes who’ve moved : “I’ll miss ya !”

SELAMAT HARI RAYA again ๐Ÿ™‚





Destination : Australia

27 05 2008

Today, we went to the Queen Victoria Market to get more things as we – mainly me – don’t have enough to keep for ourselves and our friends.

We bought some boomerang fridge magnets, more koala clips, some more boomerangs, two purses – shaped like a koala and a kangaroo head – and a kangaroo pencil box with a few tea towels.

Later, my mum and I went to a doughnut van and bought two for $1.80. There was strawberry jam inside them.

[I just figured that doughnut is the English spelling and the American spelling is donut]

After that, we went to the city. We went to somewhere near Swanston Street. My dad parked in the parking lot and we went up to Elizabeth Street.

Soon, we were in the Royal Arcade. It was a very nice building with marble floors. First, we stopped at a place called Babushkaa. It was a shop that sold Russian dolls. There were many varieties of them.

Later, we went to a shop called Westminster. It sold very delicate things that were beautiful but very expensive. Some of their goods’ prices went down a LOT! Amongst the things we bought were two musical carousels. One for me and one for my aunt as her birthday is coming up. It was only $19.90 – which was, very, very, VERY cheap!. We also bought 4 nice brooches with ribbons on it. It was only $2 each, which came down from $29.95 – how shocking, I know.

After that, we went to buy new shoes for me. I wanted some boots. Because I live in Malaysia, I could only buy the ankle-high ones. I bought some black ones for $34.90.

They were very nice. I had fun with them. It went nicely with my black jeans. I was very happy!

Unfortunately, I have to go back home tonight. Our flight is at 0015hrs, Melbourne time. Its sad but, hey, at least I got new boots! ๐Ÿ˜‰





Australia – the Land Down Under

24 05 2008

Hey people!

I’m really sorry I haven’t been posting new articles as I have so much homework and the latest exams.

So anyway, I’m in Australia now and it’s been 2 days and 1 night but it feels like its been a week. How I got here? Well, let me tell you the story…

My mom had this work in Melbourne, Australia on the 27th of May. My dad wanted to go there too because this is a great opportunity to travel to a country we haven’t been to before. So he booked an apartment in a motel on Flemington Street.

We boarded a Malaysia Airlines B777-200. It was a very, very long flight. They served dinner and breakfast, but more on that later. I, as usual, got the seat next to the window. For a 12-year-old, it was a quite boring flight. The TV was there but I have seen all of the movies. The games weren’t very exciting either. I was quite restless because I was just in Melaka the day before for a motivation camp and slept for 15 hours straight. But that was another story. Even though I got a very long nap, I was still restless on the flight. Eventually, I fell asleep.

When I woke up, there was still 5 more hours to go. By then, I had run out of ideas to do. I tried to sleep but I got awaken by my hair – trust me, that isn’t very relaxing. In the end, I had slept the total of 2 hours. But that still leaves 3 hours. By then, I gave up on trying to entertain myself and took my book from my bag – why didn’t I think of that in the first place?? – and read it. By the time I reached the middle of the book, I got a bit bored. So I walked towards the toilet at the back.

There were three people waiting for the toilet so the first thng that popped into my mind was “Now <i>there’s</i> something I can do!”. As the third person went into the toilet, a friendly stewardess was bringing some perfume out to sell them on the plane. Finally, when I came out of the toilet, the was still 2 and a half hour left.

However, I managed to survive the period of time and when it was time to come out of the airplane, it was dawn in Melbourne.

The first thing we did was get our bags, get our grey Ford Falcon and drove off to find our motel.

Our motel is called Park Squire Inn and its very cosy. How it feels to finally reach land!





A Famosa Fun!

19 03 2008

Yesterday, mybest friend Syahana – or as I usually call her Hana – came over. My dad thought it would be fun to go to Alor Gajah so he arranged a trip to Melaka. We immediately contacted her mom to approve permission. When her mother said yes, we all started packing.

The entrance to the water world was the same one as the entrance to the Animal Safari. On our way to the Water World entrance, we passed a baby elephant. My dad bought us some sugar canes to feed the friendly animal. It was trained to bow in a way of saying *Thank You*.

We went to the wave pool first. We had loads of fun. There were waves and it was fantastic!

Soon, it started to rain. We headed off to the Side Walk Cafe to rest for a while. We ate our KFC lunch we had bought earlier before we started our journey.

When the rain had *calmed down*, my mom took us to the Lazy River and the Arabian Village, where there were slides. It was so much fun! We hope to go there again!!





Celebrating Chinese New Year

10 02 2008

Yesterday evening, I went with my dad to Uncle Eric Woon’s house to celebrate Chinese New Year. I met my friend, Yean Hui, and her sister, Yean Yi. I also met their mother, Aunty Kim.

Their house was very spacious and nice. It turns out that Yean Hui, Yean Yi and Aunty Kim also play the piano. So anyways, they offered me and my dad some Mandarin oranges, some tarts and some crisps. We also drank apple juice together with the goods.ย cny-08-ii.jpg

Soon after, I went up with Yean Hui and we played internet for a while. Since Yean Hui and I have the same phone model, she showed me how to download music and all those stuff into the phone.

Unfortunately, later we had to go home. But we had loads of fun visiting them.

Thanks for having us over to your house!





I Got His Autograph!

11 12 2007

Today, in the midst of a very dull day, Papa gave me a call and said that he has a surprise for me. Later, true enough, he gave me his notebook which said:

note.jpg

When I read it, I was practically thrilled! ย  dscn3116.jpg

It seems that earlier that same day, Papa went to a conference and he met Dr Sheikh. He told him all about me and asked if he could send a note to me. So YAY!
