Happy Halloween...2010

Halloween is always a fun time for me and my daughter as we check out scary and spooky stuff the malls have and also maybe even dress up...

It may be a spooky day but we celebrate it with an open mind and just to have fun...

Ministry of Coffee, Jl Prawitoman, Yogyakarta..

The front of the Ministry of Coffee hotel...

my travel journal -Yogyakarta Day 2

Woke up with a start thinking I was late as the sun was high up in the sky already. But when I took a peek at the clock, it was just 6.30 am Indonesian time, 7.30am Malaysian time. My travel partner and niece Jamie was still asleep. So I went and take my shower first, and then watched TV.

When she woke up and finished her shower, we went down for breakfast. Ministry of Coffee served delicious breakfast. Jamie had ordered a pancake with chocolate and I went vegetarian or actually on a fruit diet with a platter of cut fruits and yogurt. It was good and came with a choice of juice, orange, apple, pineapple and also coffee or tea.

Yogya day 1 Picture Journal

This was our plane to Yogyakarta from the Kuala Lumpur Low Cost Carrier Terminal. It was raining though when we had to board the flight and everyone was given umbrellas to shelter temporarily.

my travel journal -Yogyakarta Day 1

Could not sleep the whole night as was too excited over the trip. Hubby send us to KL Sentral and my niece who was my travel partner and I boarded the Sky Bus to the KL LCCT(Low Cost Carrier Terminal) for our flight. The trip on the bus was a little worrying as the bus was really swaying from side to side, like a boat on choppy seas, but thank heavens we arrived safely there and boarded the flight on time.

We arrived at the airport in Yogyakarta on time, and fortunately, my Indonesian friend, Richard was there to pick us up. Originally, I was to have a driver come pick me up but the price was a bit too steep then.

Since Prambanan was very close to the airport, we decided to go there first before heading towards our hotel.

Daddy-cated to my husband...

I won, I won.... I won a consolation prize in the Tissot/Star father's day contest... and it was a lovely Tissot Watch...

Now the thing is, I do not have such a wonderful dad who inspires me, as my own father couldn't care less about me and never even sent a birthday card or inquire if I was ok, dead or alive..... but my husband did and whatever I wrote in the slogan, it was definitely dedicated to my husband who has given me the inspiration and trust that not all men are like my father , who upon divorcing my mother, choose to divorce his daughter as well. He did not care about me at all.

Singapore 2010 - Day 2

I barely slept. I awoke as early as 4.30am and watched as my baby slumbered on peacefully. I woke her up at 6 am and we ran downstairs to our hotel, the Tune Hotel to the 7 Eleven there to get some buns, a small box of milk and noodles. 

At 7am, we were waiting for our bus. It was however pouring cats and dogs and I got a little worried about the weather. Fortunately, I had brought an umbrella from home.

Got on our Odyssey bus and were on our way. Anne was delighted by the movie channels, and also the video games console found on board the bus. Very much like a plane.

Singapore trip - Day 1

In the bus..... very comfortable and entertaining ride...

Anne (my youngest daughter) and I took the train to Johor Bahru on Friday. We arrived there at about 2.50pm. We took a cab to Tune Hotel in Danga Bay, checked in to the hotel, put our things in our room before rushing downstairs to get on the shuttle bus which was a very nice executive coach "Compass" to the Marina Bay Sands Hotel.

Twilight - Eclipse (spoilers)

Riley, Victoria's new companion and leader of her army against Bella and the Cullens.

This part of the story starts with the note Jake sent to Bella. It speaks of him missing her and that it changes little. 

Charlie blames Edward for Bella’s disappearance in New Moon as she travelled to Italy and her apparent craziness. 

Bella is grounded and has to be home by 4 pm. Seattle is also hit by a string of unsolved killings. Bella tells Edward her plans and need to see Jacob once again. Naturally, Edward is against it, telling her werewolves are random and unpredictable, hurting those around them.

Anne and her chicken pox

2nd day
My daughter Anne and I went to KLCC last Saturday for me to meet up with some school friends whom I had not seen in quite a while. We had a good time and Anne had some fun with Aunty Cheryl and Aunty Jane who doted on her.

Later, we dropped by the Prince Court medical centre to see a baby. It was only later that evening when we got home when she pulled my hand and showed me a little 'blister' on her abdomen area, to my horror.

My baby's down with chicken pox

The very first blister....

It started at dinner.. my MIL went to Pasir Penambang to get some fresh seafood right off the fishing boats at wholesale prices and was preparing some steamed snapper, curried prawns and fried vegetables when Anne came up to me and showed me a blister.

It was like any other blister, but only it was on her abdomen.
