Post #0228 - Youngster #1 Birthday - soon.

Dear Earthlings, 

A little while ago, I asked Youngster #1 where would she wants to have her birthday at.

Me : Kakak nak buat birthday kat school ke.. kat rumah?
Youngster #1 : Kat rumah boleh.. kat hotel pon ok. 

Did she not hear my option?
Kot ye pon.. agak-agak laa kan. Birthday budak 6 tahun nak buat kat hotel.. Apakahhh?

Fast forward, I asked her again.
This time she CONFIRMED that she want it to be at our new place. 
But she requested -

1) Frozen theme birthday.
2) Clown with balloon sculpture.
3) Face painting.
4) Ice Cream. 
5) Games.
6) Lots and lots of balloon and bubbles.

Post #0227 - From pale to matte black

Dear Earthlings, 

Bought this side table some time ago, during Ik.ea sale. Was on sale less than RM100, I think. Good bargain isn't ?
HOL Side table IKEA Solid wood, a durable natural material. Practical storage space underneath the table top.

Anyways, in order to match the bed in the guest room (IKEA Hemnes Collection), 
I finally have the time to change the color :

I used the easiest method, which is to spray - by using black matte spray. 
One can covers all the sides with one coat. So, if you want to do multiple coating, prepare to buy plenty of cans. 

The thing is, I was too lazy to cover the area. Hence, I sprayed directly on the wall, grass and creepers. 
3 days has passed, I think GadgetGeek still not realised about this. But I think he will freak out this weekend.

Post #0226 - Finally, we moved in! (I think)

Dear Earthlings, 

Seriously, the finishing are yet to be finished. 
Hahaha.. it was an overdue thingy because the work has been stopped quite some time already. 

Anyways, we had a small kenduri doa selamat on February 2 (Sunday), attended by immediate family, neighbors and few orang masjid. Roughly it was about 50 - 60 people. Small crowd. 

Insha Allah, if time permits (subject to i-Rajin)  we might host another housewarming for extended families and friends. Else, if i-Malas.. mintak maaf banyak-banyak lah mainly because I don't have any helper around. 

So the cleaning process took roughly about 3 days, assisted by my dad's workers, 4 hours of daily maids and my family. The last-minute fixing and wiring was done by my bro-in-law since all the Chinese Contractor has started their CNY Holiday. Quite tiring and stressful phase. 

Selected Alya Jaya Catering  as our caterer (Confirmed by Wednesday), had  nasi tomato package (RM12.50 per head) together with two waiters and additional teh tarik and teh o since our kenduri starts at 10 in the morning. A caterer (dealt with Cik Zak.iah) whom easy to work with as I requested for the additional drinks on Saturday afternoon. Truly recommended.

Post #0225 - No pain no gain

Dear Earthlings, 

Felt chest pain and feverish the moment I stepped into my house from work which I thought it was a stress from the presence of my new superior. It turned out that I have pneumonia. Muahaha.. 
Buruk sangka punya pasal. 

will try to update (I doubt it) the overdue entry with limited internet. Our current house internet has been terminated because we plan to move by end of the month. Insha Allah. 

The new house is not really done yet, but all the essential things semua dah complete. So yang itsy bitsy here and there, will do slowly and pejam mata je lah.

Also planned not to subscribe to Astro anymore. Boleh hidup ke tanpa Astro? Sure boleh!
Our current Astro, subscribe to full package pon macam useless. Tapi yang dapat view cuma few channels macam movie channels and ch709. The rest mcm ikut mood nak appear or not. Like Disney Channels. Semua Disney channel ada except Channel PlayHouse Disney.

Malas nak panggil technician what not sebab nanti another charge.. bla.. bla.. Pastu kasi reason Astro kat this area memang macam tu. 
Blurghh.. whatever. 
Sick and tired of it. 

80% of the things, we have transferred to the new house. What's left to pack now is just our kitchen utensils, clothes and tv. Other heavy furniture like bed, cupboard, dining table, couch, fridge, washer & dryer we leave as is. Plan to pass to my Mom in law as her weekend/weekday house since she is working in downtown KL. 

If time (and internet) permits, I will share some tips in curtain and carpet hunting.

Post #0224 - Turning over new leaf

Dear Earthlings, 

We are now in the first quarter of 2014 (and I have always been like this. Not being able to update my blog on daily basis. Cita-cita ada.. tapi tak sempat)

Alhamdulillah, we received the invitation from the Almighty to visit the Holy Mecca and Medina on 27th December 2013. All these while, I thought the best place to celebrate new year is in New York, but after experiencing Mecca, I believe.. the Holy Land is best place to be. 

Everything was sudden. 
Our original plan was to go to Houston for three weeks, paying my II a visit.  Sort of family trip thingy. Even more, we planned it since mid last year.  

Some how the plan got diverted and went to the travel agency end November, picked the earliest date available and wallah.. it's confirmed. 

Even the kursus we went a week before the trip since our schedule were pretty tight up. 

Again, will try to give tips on the trip. 
Sigh. Can't promise.
