Hong Kong, Republic of China - Nov 2016


2016 for us was (eh, is) the year that we most spent our cash on. I mean seriously like a lot!!! Did our major overhaul on our car and enrolled for the MBA course..and many other ad-hoc matters!! Tapi alhamdulillah,the balance of savings cukup for our simple Hong Kong trip. When I say simple, literally, memang we did nothing else other than Disneyland Hong Kong.

Went there from the 7th Nov - 11th Nov 2016 with Malindo Air. Yes, our free airfares as a token of appreciation titik peluh dear husband kerja bagai nak ghak (attentively engaged with work) for Malindo Air. Thank you dear husband.

4 hours plus in flight with Elma...mula-mula berdebar but alhamdulillah she did not buat crying,no whining..good girl macam kakak. :)

Getting around with MTR octopus card - beli pun ok, tak beli pun ok. Their tube/train system is so systematic even the dumbest can comprehend it. If you to purchase one, you may claim for the balance refund at the airport upon your departure home. Else, just buy the one way tickets macam kita beli LRT tickets over the counter/machine.

Accommodation : I would recommend Hollywood Hotel. For us, its well suited with respect those travelling with small children. We would not want to squander our precious time and hustle on the MTR back and forth the island. Shuttle bus from the park to the hotel are 15 mins apart.

Halal Eateries :
Kowloon : There are a handful of them but...emmmm, most of the halal eateries that we came across are so filthy dirty and disgusting. You can at least see 1 dead cockroach at the somber passageway..imagine how the kitchen would look like then!!
Disneyland Park : There are few halal cafes available at the park. I forgot the name, will write it down later insyaAllah.

Bought our 2-day park tickets together with our hotel reservation. An absolute quest :)

Day 1-  Arrival. Free and easy.
Day 2-  Disneyland Hong Kong Park
Day 3-  Disneyland Hong Kong Park
Day 4-  The Peak & Avenue of Stars
Day 5-  Depart back to KUL

This post sums it all. No uncanny tips nor notes that I feel you would need from our trip this time around. You could easily get your 'how-to' cracked when you are here.

Anyhoo, photos are a must right? ;)

Elma's 1st Birthday


Time really flies. Elma is now 1 year old and this is the first post for the whole year and its about her!!!hahaha...never thought that being a full time stay at home mom would be this free eh?!!?!? Well, Im back , insyaAllah

Looking back on this date last year, it was on a Sunday evening that I gave birth to this little girl. Contraction pain started very mild that afternoon but became intense towards 5pm. Unbearable 2 hours of pain I would say!!! Worst than delivering Dahlia as I could recall. I can barely walk and I remember mumbling to Helmi telling him, this is the last one..;) insyaAllah. My whole body felt so cold and was shivering like no ones business. Tapi degil, tak mau kena cucuk tulang belakang..At 7-ish pm, Dr Nor Azhana Mohamad delivered our little 3.6kg baby Elma bt Mohd Helmi.

Stitching time was the best!! What ever gas the doc gave me,it worked like heck!!! Im glad and thankful that I had great o&g for both my normal deliveries.

Dear Elma,

Here are your doctors who held you when you were little. Do include them in your prayers ok baby :)

 The one who delivered you

The one who gave you shots!! ;p

Happy birthday Elma darling, may you grow beautifully, gracefully fulfilling our deeds as a muslim dunia akhirat..ameen..

Mami Papa and Kakak love you so much!!!

A very short entree indeed..mami dah tua!!! and on top of that I gotta start cooking now..kejap lagi awak bangun from your nap, i cant do anything!!! ;) love ya!!
