Hi Faiq who is 3!

Happy birthday to this boy.. last week we had a small celebration. His birthdate is 111213. And he shared the same birthday as me.

Since I have 5 children, this one is the most talkative as a 3-year old. He is still breastfeeding with me (a VERY long milestone), even though we opted for mixed feeding since he is around 1 1/2 months, due to slow progress of his weight.

Look at how excited he is, to cut his own cake!
There was a dinner last Saturday organised by Firdaus' office. Since Fahri is still recovering from his circumcision, and Fawwaz recuperating from last week operation, we brought him along.


And guess what? He won the lucky draw that night! He was the only non-staff who got the prize (and the VIP who pick up the names, was like, "Who is Faiq Aysar?" after announcing the winner).  I jokingly said it is a rice cooker, and my guess was right!

He even told his dad, "Abah, jangan lupa bawa balik hadiah Faiq tau!"

He promised me to cook rice, and the next morning, he thought he can play with his prize. Oh no no, it is not a toy, my dear son.

Yeay, holiday to Legoland!

Booked a trip to Legoland with my family from 27 to 29 November (Sunday-Tuesday). Stayed at Legoland Hotel to gain the most of our Legoland experience.

Arrived around 10.30 a.m. and requested for early check in. Was informed that the rooms were fully booked, hence we leave our item at a room near receptionist (yes, you can leave your bags there under the care of bell boy) and went straight to the park.

We got a call around 3 p.m. informing the room was ready (usual check in time is 4 p.m., and check out is 11 p.m.).

Now, review of the room. We took the Deluxe Room and it fits up to 8 pax of people. We were placed in room 123 and even though I have not requested for any theme, we got the most popular theme - which is the Pirate Themed Room.

It consists of 1 king bed and 2 bunk beds (with additional bed for pullover).

The bed in the main room.

The bunk bed and the pull over bed
Legoland toiletries, ahoy!

There is a treasure box inside the room. My kids enjoyed it very much, they even need to solve clues to open the treasure box. There are small Lego tokens inside.

3 TVs in this room! And strategically situated in front of the bed.

I even love the carpet, look at how it was nicely decorated and fit with the theme. For each room, it was equipped with 2 boxes of Lego for playing, and even a Nescafe coffee machine. Yums! We even had biscuits (nicely packaged and it was selling in the cafeteria for RM 8)

And hey, to top it off... the Family Lounge is full of Legos. The hotel even has Kinect X-box playtime (where I saw kids dancing to the game) and movie time at night.


Our package consists of breakfast. And how popular it was, that the hotel needs to give a time slip. We choose the 8.30 am time for our breakfast. They have the usual spread: nasi lemak, nasi goreng, Western food. Oh, and roti canai, roti pratha and roti bom.
So, about the park, what did my kids enjoy the most?

Well, well, this kid requested for boating. Since he is underage, he needs to wear a safety vest.

There is a train to bring the kids around. And I have to take it 3 times with Faiq. He is so obsessed with trains.

Another section at Lego Imagination. Suitable for kids below 5 years old. Beside this section, there is a building for kids to build and test their cars. My kids love it so much.

Went to the 4D theatre at Lego Imagination. Can you spot Faiq?

In front of the entrance. Since we were staying in the Legoland hotel, we have 30 minutes early access before the public. The park opens at 10 a.m., but we went there at 9.30 a.m.

In front of Lego Technic, this section is for much older kids and adults. We were actually in front a very scary roller coaster rides.

Went for Lego Ninjago ride (just opened in November). I love it so much that we can battle the bad guys using our hands.

Faiq went for driving, hence this driving license.
Oh, and the miniatures at Lego Miniland are intricate in details. Even the buses are moving! They even have a railway with a moving Lego train (KTM).






Overall, it was worth it staying at the hotel and taking the 2-day combo ticket. We know that we cannot cover the whole park for one whole day, hence the early entrance is really appreciated. And I do appreciate that we can do multiple entries.

Since the hotel is near, and the park is located at level LG2 of the hotel, we can easily went back to the hotel to get a quick break before we enter the park again. We maximised our visit and went to the park till closing time (around 7 p.m.).

My boys went to the Water Park, and they enjoyed themselves very much.

The foods inside the park are expensive, even an ice cream costs us RM4, hence we opted to buy our foods at Medini Mall (located in front of the entrance of Legoland). There is also a convenience store located there.

It was a fun filled holiday and we enjoyed it very much.

We miss you ayah

It has been quite a scare when Ummi informed us that Ayah was unwell during their trip for umrah.

He feels pained quite a few days back, to be exact on Monday, due to his surgery scar last year. My parents has been waiting so long for this umrah, but rhey have to postpone it due to Ayah's health and need for an urgent operation.

Then, we lost contact with both my parents. It gave us quite a scare that I think all of us (his daughters) were crying since we cannot reached Ummi or Ayah, through any medium form of communication.

Afiqah had the agent's contact number, and Aini decided to call the agent the next day, since the company is situated in Shah Alam.

My husband contacted the mosque's nazir to ask for his help to contact my father.

Alhamdulillah, Ayah suddenly enable his data roaming services and decided to answer all the text messages.

He has been sick for a few days already, and has recovered slowly.

We love you Ayah and Ummi.
Enjoy your umrah and please stay healthy.

Love,
Aida
