Julian at the Shop

Lately Julian's tactic of asking for something at a shop has been to ask if we have RMx. E.g. "Daddy/Mummy, do you have RMx?" (x being the price of the item he fancies). This would then be followed by "Can we buy xxx?" or something to that effect.

On 17 September 2013, Julian and I went to a shop for him to choose a 'reward'. He asked me "How much money do you have?" "RM5," I said. At one point, he looked longingly at some chocolates. I asked him if he wanted it. He said, "It costs RM4...then you'll only have RM1 left." When I repeated my question, he gave the chocs a thoughtful look and walked away. His final choice was a packet drink and a packet of biscuits (total cost: RM2.90).I really felt touched!

Bukit Merah Laketown Resort 2013

We did a repeat of our 2011 holiday to Bukit Merah Laketown Resort from 4-5 September 2013 with the same friends. The difference this time is that we had Jianna and our friends had their 2-year old daughter.

The first day saw us at the Waterpark. We visited the Ecopark on the second day. We did not go to the Orang Utan Island this time.

We have had the privilege of visiting the resort during the off-peak season. With Julian starting primary school in 2014, any future visits would mean braving other school-holiday goers. Thanks to Aileen for yet another enjoyable stay.

Jianna at 17 Months

Jianna turned 17 months old on 30 August 2013. Here are some updates:
  • She now has 12 teeth.
  • She can now say "amen", and when asked "What's your name?" she'll respond "Yanna".
  • She's been eating quite a lot, sometimes as much as nearly a full Chinese rice bowl of rice with some meat and vegetables. For fruit, she loves bananas.
  • She's slowly taking a liking to books, especially her brothers' Thomas boardbooks.

Sedim Stayover

We had an overnight stay at Sungai Sedim Recreational Forest from 14-15 September 2013. This time we were with a group of friends. Similar to our trip last year, we stopped in Lunas for roast duck/pork lunch at Tan Kee coffee shop.

In a recent trip back to Ipoh, we took a drive through Ipoh's Little India. As we drove past, we highlighted that there were many things Indian there such as Indian food, and Indian clothes. Justin appreciated the information and added, "... and Indian toys...".
