12th August 2007
Kampung Padang, Kuantan

This is a LONG overdue update on this FP.. what can we say..except thousand apologies to all.. this year has been quite hectic for Alliya and her ibu... getting used to the change of our routines since we moved to our own place this year which is a little bit far from Alliya's school.. and not to mention the workloads that her ibu has to bear this year... What a year has it been!!

Anyway.. this is a special request from Alliya's Aunt, Aunty Na (she's still available.. for all the bachelors out there ).

This was an outing arranged by Aunty Na. When we told her we wanted to buy some durians and rambutans, she made a phone call to her friend and walla!! we were invited to her orchard.. which actually was just at the back of her house. It was Alliya first experience and definitely she was very excited.. but it was almost at the end of the fruit season already (as usual..been so busy to make the trip 'balik kampung'). So the only fruits that were still available were the rambutans..

For those viewers who doesn't know what is rambutan.. read this quote from wikipedia
The rambutan (IPA: [ramˈbu.t̪ɑn], Nephelium lappaceum) is a medium-sized tropical tree in the family Sapindaceae, and the fruit of this tree. It is probably native to southeast Asia, although its precise natural distribution is unknown. It is closely related to several other edible tropical fruits including the Lychee, Longan and Mamoncillo. It is believed to be native to the Malay Archipelago where the name quite literally means "hairy." In Panama, Costa Rica, and Nicaragua, it is known as mamón chino.

That day also was the first time for Alliya climbing a tree.. eventhough she was screaming to get down.. it was an unforgettable experience for a city girl like her!!

10 -11 March 2007 (Friday - Saturday)
KL - Kuantan - Kemaman

This is another long overdue update (sorry ya Yani, Zabadi & Pak Njang). On these dates Alliya's family from Penang decided to travel to Kota Bahru via KL. At first, we were planning to join them but Alliya's ayah has other commitment so we decided to travel to Kuantan and send them off at Kemaman, Terengganu.

While we were in Kuantan, Alliya was very happy to be the hostess at our Taman Cenderawasih 'cottage'. We wished that we could take the 'geng' to more places in Kuantan but since Kota Bahru was their final destination... we had to settle by taking them to Telok Cempedak only.

For Alliya it was a memorable experience playing with the waves with Yani & Farah.. she wishes that the next time her cousins decide to visit Kuantan.. it will be for a few days not just for a nite.

Flora Fest - Visit Malaysia 2007

Malaysia Flora Fest 2007
Colours of Harmony [ 20 Jan - 4 Feb 2007 ]

Malaysia is celebrating 50 glorious years of independence with the Visit Malaysia Year 2007 campaign. With over 240 exciting events and programmes lined up, it will be a year-long celebration for both Malaysians and visitors alike.

In conjunction with Visit Malaysia Year 2007, the Malaysia Floral Fest is back with the biggest and most colourful display of flora in Malaysia. The theme for this year's Flora Fest is Colours Of Harmony, as Malaysia's colourful blooms represent the beautiful racial harmony found in Malaysia. For a whole week in January, several Putrajaya and Kuala Lumpur venues will be transformed with bright, colourful and fragrant blooms.

Inspired by past successes at the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade in USA, Malaysia's very own floral parade will grace the launch of Malaysia Flora Fest 2007.

Originally introduced in 1991, Malaysia's Floral Parade is the only such parade ever organized in Southeast Asia. And this year the parade will be more dazzling than ever. Participants from various organizations and state governments will try to outshine one another with their own floral creations.

Due to working and school commitment, we were not able to watch the Grand Parade in Putrajaya. It was a very frustrating day for Alliya and her ibu. But we're happy to hear that all the floats will be on displayed until Monday in a so called Air-Conditioned tent.. eventhough it won't be the same like the Parade itself but at least we still had some chances of taking some photographs.

So on the Sunday, 28th January.. we headed to Putrajaya after we had our brunch. Had to pay RM5 (RM2/adult and RM1/child).. the number of crowd were quite ok but the parking system still need to be improved (another sigh!!)

Alliya was getting ready with her Kodak Easyshare and was busy clicking once we got there.. she used up her 32Mb memory card so quickly and yet she still have 4 more floats left to capture. She was disappointed at first.. but she smiles again when we told her to use the Oly to capture the last 4 floats. These are some of the images captured through her eyes..

MidValley-1Utama-Alamanda-Ikano Power Centre-KLCC

Had been quite sometimes already since this FP was updated. Well.. end of the year 2006 and beginning of a new year 2007 meant... a busy time getting ready for schooling for both; Alliya n her mom.

Now getting back to the pictures presented here.. Since we've moved to KL, we've adapted to the life of the KL'ians (I'm making this term up.. ) ie.. making Shopping Malls as our 2nd, 3rd, 4th home or at least our local weekend getaway. Eventhough some people might disagree with this but to us Shopping Malls provided "everything under one roof".. if anyone is familiar with the parking rates in KL and the traffic jam especially.. he or she will definitely agree with us.

Among our favorites malls in KL are the MidValley (hate the traffic jam though), KLCC (no problem getting parking but the rate is a killer ), 1Utama/IKEA-IKANO Power Centre/d'Curve (love the restaurants choices but a little bit far from our place of residence), Berjaya Times Square (too crowdy with these trendy teens and also favorite 'port' for Ibu Alliya's students) and once in a while Alamanda-Putrajaya

Usually the first activity that we did once we reached the mall is "EATing". and before we left for home.. we'll make sure that we'll be "EATing" again. Once in awhile we'll be doing some shopping, watching movies, buying groceries or just window shopping.. if they're activites worth watching or joining we would stick around and if there're special decorations we definitely will bring our Oly and force our Alliya to be the model. So far she was always willing to be the model and only sometimes she would be the person behind the Oly.

Here are some of Alliya's pictures taken during the Christmas Season last December 2006.. Enjoice!!!

Eid-ul Fitr

24 October 2006
Sungai Nibong, Penang

This year Alliya celebrated Eid-ul fitr or Hari Raya Aidil Fitri first in Penang (her mom's side) and later in Pahang (her dad's side). This year she really enjoyed and probably understood the true meaning of Eid-ul fitr or some of us used to call it Hari Raya Puasa i.e. fasting Hari Raya.

For the first time we allowed her to continue fasting for the whole day and infact the whole month without fail. No promises of incentives and yet she insisted and enjoyed doing it. The part she loves most is the 'bersahur' surprise..surprise.. because all these while she's not a morning person. The hardest part she said is not able to drink or in other word 'being thirsty'.. even the sight of aquarium water seem cool and delicious to her.

During the first few days of Ramadhan.. there would still be a half full bottle of mineral water and a few pieces of biscuits in her school bag. But all were taken away once Alliya was showing no sign of fatigue or such.

Alliya didn't care much about getting new clothes.. she's more eager to go back to 'kampung' and spending the eid there. Maybe because this year when everybody asked her this question.."puasa berapa hari?".. she can proudly reply.."puasa penuh.. tak tinggal pun".. Kudos to my beloved daughter!!
