Life....Kids...and So on..

Wowww....it has been soooooo long since i last wrote....ceyyy...
last time i shared psl berita kelahiran ahli baharu keluarga kami...

SYED CALEEF HUSAYN


nextweek dah nak masuk 1yo
cepatnya masa berlalu
alhamdulillah ms 11mo dia dah pndai tateh..skrg pun dah agak kerap practice
gambate caleef!!!

masa baby...dia adalah yg sgt2 senang dijaga/diurus
dah besar skit ni, lain pulak la ragam dia
baru tau cmne lainla ank pmpuan dgn ank lelaki
kikikiiii

owhh...dulu xsempat cter cmne kisah kelahiran caleef
saje la nak buat kenang2an
kotla nnti caleef nak baca blog mommy dia 

actually...start sakit tu around 4pagi isnin 16 feb 2015
sakit mcm makin kerap
due sbnarnye 25 feb...tapi dah start sakit kan
tapi mcm masa ariq dulu...tahan je smpai subuh
so lps subuh tu...get things ready mcm biase...
husband tanya nk gi hospital ke..i said yes
unfortunately...dia pgg kunci bank rasanye mggu tu...
so dia dgn berat hati (melalui nada suara & riak muka)
ckp dia kena gi bank dulu pg tu...so cmne?
i said, xpela....i drive sendiri..he was kind of shocked

bleh ke?
i said, nak xnak kena gak gi hospital sbb dah sakit makin kerap
xpe..hantar je ariq kt pengasuh mcm biase

so dia hantar ariq...ckp lps settle kt bank nnti dia dtg hospital (azzahrah)
so i drove to azzahrah
syukur alhamdulillah sbb pg2 tu nk menuju ke bangi kira melawan arus 
kalo x..jammed gila
sempat sambar bahulu dgn air msk je utk bekalan sbb x bfast lg
spnjg otw ke azzahrah, smabil mkn bahulu skit
2x contraction
fuhhhhh....dahla keta manual...
rasa nk tercekik bahulu

alhamdulillah Allah swt permudahkan segala nye
smpai2 je parking lot byk
trus gi naik tingkat 1...jumpa nurse
so bidan check jln...dh bukak 3cm
then tgu wad kosong
mintak kt nurse nk gi bli bfast..nurse kata sruh husband je 
sbb dh bukak 3cm tu takut jd pape

xlama tu...dpt dh wad...msuk..tukar uniform bagai
dlm kul 9.30 pg tu husband smpai..
dia blikan roti
erkk...lapar nye...
igtkan nk bli nasi lemak ayam goreng ke..huhu
xpela..roti pun roti la

dlm kul 11 bidan dtg check jln lg...bru 4cm
so mundar mandir la dlm wad tu
contraction makin kurang
ehh..cmne jln nk bukak kalo xde contraction
sakit xsekerap pg td la pulak
so dlm kul 2-3 ptg cmtu gynae dtg
check jln masih 4cm...so dia suggest induce dlm labour room (LR)
sbb xnk amik risiko katanye
then okla

masuk LR around 4.30 ptg cmtu rasanya
alhamdulillah 5.33 ptg lahirlah ank lelaki saya...cewahhh
lahir seberat 3.3kg
kali ni alhamdulillah push mcm lg sng berbanding ariq...
ye la dulu 1st time
this time mcm lps 3-4x push trus kuar
alhamdulillah baby sihat sempurna

masa tu ariq ade dgn my mom dh kt wad...tgh tggu..
my twin sis pun ade
so everything went well..alhamdulillah..
ok nnti smbung psl masa pantang lak..

ISTANBUL - Day 3


hari ke-3...dated 28th April 2014 (Isnin)
husband nk mula misi mencari brg2 yg kwn2 dia kirim
iaitu souvenior dr Hardrock Café IStanbul
haaaa....
so we headed to Taksim Square
sbb after did some research
HR Istanbul ni kira bru sgt la opening
dlm internet kata kt area Taksim
cmne nk gi Taksim?
sng je...naik tram tu smpai ke station Kabatas
from there, naik funekular where the only stop is at Taksim
 
smua ni bleh pkai Istanbulkard

Istanbulkard ni bleh bli je kat mn2 kiosk yg jual newspaper/air
nk topup pun sng...mn2 station tram ke metro ade pondok Jetonmatik
topup la kt situ
bli 1kad je...bleh swipe byk kali
 
okay...back to Taksim
memula smpai kt Taksim...kira ktorg salah arah
tp xdela smpai tahap sesat
Tanya org2 kt situ smua xtau psl HR café ni
ye la...kata bru opening
so kami cuba cari sendiri
dan.....bumi Istanbul dilimpahi hujan pada pagi itu
ade la org2 yg jual paying...5TL each...
so berjalan2 lah kami dlm hujan renyai2
 
Taksim ni area moden la kiranye
byk butik2
xmcm Sultanahment
 
 
cari punye cari...akhirnye....
 
jumpa jugak HR café ni
haaa....harus la snap pic kt dpn café kannn
bukti bkn bli souvenior yg ciplak jual tepi jln
hehehee
lama jugak duk kt sini...biase la org tu
nk lak org kirim...
mak pun bli jugak ade kwn kirim t-shirt
 
jln spnjg Taksim ni bleh thn jauh
kt tgh2 ade tram
tapi kami xnaik sbb aritu hujan, tram xjln
smua org berpayung je
cari rain cover utk stroller pun xde...jenuh cari...
tapi xpela...
we all just jln2 just to get familiar dgn area ni
sbb dh plan nk dtg ari lain ketika tidak hujan
*harus la...ari hujan ssh nk shopping
 
kalo ikutkan ramalan cuaca, mmg aritu hujan...so ssh jugak nk ke mn2
most of the time, mak dukung je ariq
lenguh xyah citer ler...
kejap nk ssu...kejap nk jln...
biase la dia pun sama2 excited
 
3rd day ni xde ape actvt sgt
tambah lak hujan..limited skit la
tp sblah ptg tu husband ajak gi clothes outlet
olivium namaye
dia kan mmg suka outlet2 ni
kalo tgk gaya mcm leceh nk ke olivium tu
tp mak ikutkan je even dgn ati yg sebam *sbb letih
 
dh naik tram, naik trun bus bagai
akhirnye smpai
sori no pic was taken
sbb tempat tu xmenarik pun
so...my advice...xperlu la ssh cari
ni mak sje nk share citer je
huhuuu
 
back to Sultanahment
 

 
dh blk hotel..mandi2 bagai...kuar mencari dinner
kedai2 mkn smua nye walking distance
jumpa la kedai ni
sedap daging kebab nye
kedai dia bleh katakan btul2 dkt dgn tram station Sultanahmet
pastu kami feeling2 la dgn angin sejuk sepoi2 bahasa tu
 
dh kenyang...
otw balik hotel...sempat tgk2 kedai lain
 
 
haaaa....ini smua namanye baklava
manisan org turkey
manis sgt ke? YES
kt dlmnye lapis2 dgn pistachio *btul ke eja ni
tp kami xbli la...*xbli lg
igt nnti dh dkt2 blk bru bli
sbb mak penah baca...org kata kalo kt Spice Bazaar jauh lg murah
mcm ni...sekilo dlm 50 - 60TL
dlm kedai/café yg ala2 excluvise gitu
mahal kotttt
so...yg ni reserve utk kemudian
tggu smpai jejak kaki kt Spice Bazaar (^__^)
 
ok...end of day-3

ISTANBUL - Part 1 of Day 2

Sekarang msuk hari kedua di bumi Istanbul
dated 28th April 2014 (Sunday)
hotel package comes with breakfast
*thankfully
we woke up as early as possible
we don't want to waste even a second when we are on holiday right??
heheheh
alamak...lupa btul nak snap our buffet breakfast
yg very simple
but a satisfactory to me
*of coz husband merungut skit sbb asyik sama tiap2 ari
dpt mkn pun kira mujur sgt la kan
drpd nk kena jln tah ke mana2 mencari pepagi buta



Ariq is ready to kick off *hehehee
actually ini je la bju tebal yg bwk utk ariq
kan konon musim bunga
xtau lak sejuk ala2 winter gitu
sib baik mommy dia pack bju long-sleeve smua
ni pic dpn hotel
hotel kami ni mula2 rasa mcm tah kt ceruk mana je
BUT....haaaaa
xsmpai 5min walking dah smpai tempat tumpuan pelancong
*cewahhh (bukan ayat cover okayyy)
rata2 hotel kt sini mmg cmtu
kalo hotel yg taraf bulan bintang tu actually jauh dr area pelancong
mcm hotel ni located in Sultanahmet
tmpat yg ade Ayasofya...Blue Mosque, etc


haaa...on the way 
ariq terlalu excited nmpak "fawerssss"
sibuk nak petik
bunga cmni mmg merata2
bila petik...trus cium
pastu "emm..mangi nyerr....smbil geleng2 kpale
*muah3x clever girl*


okayyy 1st place yg kaki kunjungi ialah.....

taraaaaa....Hagia Sophia
*pronounce as Ayasofya
queue nye punyelah panjang
pdhal bru jam 8.30 pagi...but like i said 
kalo gi holiday mesti xmo buang masa kann
berapa harga tiket nak masuk nih???
aihhhh...xnmpak ke tu
sengaja la mak snap pic nk tunjuk
nk kira tukaran Turkish Lira ni sng je
1TL lebih kurang RM2
so...do your own maths yer...hehehe

actually ms ni tgh ade construction skit
namun begitu *cewahhh
pengunjung mmg rmai...xputus2 org beratur nk msuk
kt dlmnye work of art mmg sgtla cntik
tp mak xsure la orientation nye cmne
i mean...unsur2 Islam tu mmg obvious
but in the same time
ade je gambar2 yg ala2 jesus christ ke whatever tu
tapi xpe
just enjoying the view (^__*)


owhhh...ini salah 1 spot dlm Ayasofya
haaa...ini used to be tmpat amik wudhu'
made of marble
mmg sejuk lerrr...


next spot....

haaaa....nampak x yg kt belakang nun
itu la Blue Mosque
nampak kelabu je kan
actually in real pun nampak biru kelabu cmtu la
ade tourist guide yg citer
blue mosque ni dpt nama dr batu marmar yg digunakan
utk buat masjid ni
batunye kebiru-biruan...dtg dr warna air dr tasik yg terletak di Bursa
tah btul ke x...xkisah ler
xde effect pape kt mak ponnn

ni lebih kurang keadaan dlm Blue Mosque
mmg rmai sgt manusia
ape pakcik tu buat?
dia tgh cuci lampu yg memenuhi segenap ruang atas kepala kami
actually skit je ruang yg depa bukak utk visitors
nmpak x palang kayu tu
we cannot cross beyond that
ruang dpn tu utk org solat
bila tiba waktu nye la
ruang solat pmpuan kcik je
kami xberkesempatan nk solat kt sini sbb rmai nor manusia
pastu tmpat wudhu lak kt luar je
tmpt wudhu pmpuan biase kena gi tandas
yg open tu utk lelaki jekkkk

orait...
ni baru skit
sbb tu ade part...cewahhh
duk sana mmg rs masa mcm sgt panjang
Day 2 ni kira mcm 1st day kami la
sbb Day 1 smpai pun dh mlm...
Day-2 kami mmg byk actvt
tp gmbar kt laptop lak
so nnti la mak update lg...huhuu

ISTANBUL - Day 1

بِسمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحمٰنِ الرَّحيمِ

Cewahh...permulaan yang baik
sukacita mak nk citer yang kami anak beranak pegi bercuti aritu
26 Apr - 3 Mei 2014 ke Istanbul uollssss
cewahhhh...
actually alhamdulillah mak dpt tiket murah
naik Qatar Airways
experience yg i would say...one of the best
ni tips utk korg yg suka nk travel
sepanjang pemerhatianku *cewah*
kalo nak menuju belah2 europe nun, cuba tinjau2 la Qatar Airways
*alamak...patut dpt komisyen nihh*
biase harga tiketnye jauh lebih murah compared to other airlines
1st mak tgk MAS...3k lbih return tix per person *fuhhhh...berpoloh ketiak*
tgk etihad...emirates...lebih kurg jekkk
tgk Qatar....jeng3x
more less rm4500 utk tiga beranak
amacam??jimat kannn
total journey dlm 12 jam including 1jam transit di Doha
bertolak jam 9.40 pg...tiba di Istanbul jam 7.30 mlm waktu tempatan

sampai je trus la snap gmbar kannnn
ok tlg abaikan tarikh kt pic di atas
itu instamag punye mak xtau acaner nk edit
waktu istanbul lewat 5jam drpd malaysia
so ms kami tiba tu kt malaysia dh jam 12 lbih tgh mlm
exhausted...jet-lag...smua ade la
tp ariq still bleh tersengih2...mcm biase
alhamdulillah dia x cranky sgt in flight
cuma sibuk nk mkn suap sendiri la...
cik stewardess lak siap bg 1set meal utk dia sorg...
pulun la kwn mkn nasi suap sendiri

for those yg merancang nk ke istanbul
sila ambik maklum
international arrival mmg crowded gila
as usual...xde special lane utk elderly or pregnant mom OR mom with kids
*lane special ni perlu ade sgt2 sbnarnye*
jadi beraturlah kami ms nk pass through imigration tu
bygkan la cmne prasaan
dahla mak tgh selsema smpai berdenyut kpala
mmg tension la....
Note : masuk turkey xperlu visa ye
dah selesai tu trus kuar...cari agent yg akan bwk kami ke hotel
sbb mak book hotel via agent kt sana plus stay at the same hotel for the whole week, agent tu bg free airport pick up and transfer
sapa interested nk try agent ni utk bantu cari pelbagai segi
bleh tgk website ini
*eh, bleh dpt free stay x next time??*winkkk*

haaaa....kami check in kt hotel Anadolu *promo lagikk
kira budget hotel la...not bad
kami pegi during spring...so mmg mahal skit
rs kalo walk in tu bleh dpt cheaper price cuma availability fluctuates
so...terpulang la nk mcm mana
haaaa...lagi 1 lesson learnt
meskipun before pegi dah usha tgk cuaca cmne
ptut dlm 15-22 degree celcious on average
tp istanbul ni sejuk skit rupanye
sbb located dekat dgn laut...angin sepoi2 gitu
kuar je dr pintu airport menggigil jugak mak
sib baik sweater ariq ade kt tgn...
mak mmg siang2 dh pkai long-sleeved sbb in flight pun sejuk kan
lepas check in tu ktorg x dinner pun sbb depa dh serve meal before landing
so.....trus ZzzZzzz...


ok...end of Day 1~~

Percutian Bajet - Osaka

Halloooooo...
wah...dah lama x update kat sini.
eleh...mcm la bz sgt...bzbody jer
kt ofis cam byk keje...
tp sambil2 tu tgh plan la next trip
gi mana? jeng...jeng...jengggggg....
kena tggu smpai sana dulu ler baru bley citer..

tajuk this entry is not so catchy 
tapi cam xleh nk pk 
lgpun japgi dh nak blk...huhuuuu
and my baby is waiting...
dh pndai "mana mommy? mana mommy?"
owhh...i love you...muahhhhh

haaa...saje nk share utk sesapa yg berminat je
kalo nk plan budget trip
nak kata aku pandai sgt planning xjugak la
tapi alhamdulillah xpnah lgi berhabisan melampau2
semua nya within budget

last year my family went to Japan
Osaka to be exact la...
masa tu ariq bru msuk 1tahun...jalan pun dah stabil
aku dpt tket murah...xsmpai 2k utk 3 beranak
naik MAS...kira murah la kan
plus MAS bagi makan, luggage 30kg sorg

bila bwk infant ni depa mmg bg kita duk seat dpn skali
sbb nk bg bassinet
sib baik la ariq tdo jugak dlm tu
kalo x lebam la tgn mak ni nk riba dia (^__^)

pastu aku book hotel via AirAsiaGo
ok...maybe aku ptut dpt komisyen sbb mcm promote lak kt sini..hihi
ni kira mmg my first time gi Japan
(smua pun first time)
so kalo kita gi TANPA bantuan agent, mmg kena byk homework la
baca blog...tu tripadvisor tu mmg bagus
siap ada forum
bleh taip je point apa nk tau...pastu baca la response diorg

back to the hotel booking
kdg2 kita bleh dpt murah kalo direct deal dgn hotel
tp sbb i've never been to Japan
plus xtau nak stay mana...
then tgk dlm airasiago...bleh tgk hotel map
so maka Hotel Hillarys lah yg dipilih
sbb tgk map itu plg dekat dgn Namba station
Namba tu kira mcm KL sentral la lebih kurang
plus it's attached to Namba Parks
that is...a mall...with quite a beautiful park within 

and hotel tu dekat jugak dgn Dotonbori
apa itu Dotonbori? Google sendiri la ek
menarik jugak tempat tu
kalo mlm, huihhhh ramai giler org
yg jual mkn ada...jual brg ada...jual body pun ada
kui3....tetttttt

kt situ plg byk jual takoyaki seingat aku
pastu byk kedai games
yg dah tua2 bangka pun main games
owh ye....memula kami gi Dotonbori tu jln kaki je
pastu baru prasan hotel ada bg sewa basikal
wahhh....apa lagi
kami 3 beranak sewa la basikal
siap letak Ariq dlm bakul...muat2 je
silap btul xbwk stroller
rasa nak tercabut bahu mendukung Ariq
tp sib baikla kebanyakan tempat ada sediakan sewaan stroller
owh...entry sblum ni dah pnah ckp kan
depa xpggl stroller...but "baby car" instead
sebut stroller tu trus muka blurrr...(@__@)

2nd day dah merayap ke USS osaka
okayyy...panas pulak aritu
tapi blehla tahan...
tket msuk aje dh dkt RM200
xpela kan...skali skala...blum tentu dpt gi lg pasni
hehehehhe
oleh kerana Ariqku kcik lagi...so dia pun xpandai nk excited sgt
byk mainan dia xdpt nk main
sbb xlepas syarat ketinggian...kui3
kebanyakannye sesuai utk bdk umur 4thn ke atas
time kami gi tu pulak tgh sambutan Halloween
bykla jual brg2 bertemakan itu
pastu duk ulang2 pasang lagu Happy halloween
ada parade show...not bad jugakla

well...i think if you have RM4k budget
which includes air tix, hotel for a week stay, mkn & jln2
yup...u can have a nice holiday in Osaka
tp kalo nk gi smpai ke tokyo tu kena ada extra budget
ktorg xpi sbb :- 
1. perjalanan naik train approx 4hours *xsggup kalo ariq meragam*
2. cost dlm RM400 (T__T)
3. Tokyo lebih mahal & lebih rmai manusia *menurut sorg makcik Indon yg aku jumpa dlm train*

jadi...di atas faktor2 di atas
xjadi la kami menjejakkan kaki ke tokyo
tp kalo sapa2 nk merasa tu xsalah..
kalo ada budget lebih

hmm...apa lagi ek
ptutnye kami nk ke kyoto
naik train sejam je rs nye
tp sbb kalo gi sana byk kena berjalan
dan mengenangkan tkut xde kemudahan stroller
so kami xpegi ler..*sob...sob

okay larrr...cukup kot stakat ni
tgh nk plan next trip..
tket......done!!
hotel....done!!!
itinerary....almost done...
$$$....blum tukar....hihiiikkk
