Ariana & toys

Kami balik KK last week (that explains the sunyi-ness in this blog). Ariana dapat 2 sets of new toys.

This is Ariana with her another newly bought tin tea set. RM39 ja from Parkson.

Unplanned, tapi harus beli sebab Ariana was not in her good mood (lack of sleep sebab the whole day kami bershopping), throwing tantrums and all but suddenly being goody-goody when she saw this tea set.
‘Mai want this..’
-_-”
Saya pun beli sebab tidak sanggup layan ke-tantrum-an nya lagi.

And te next day, same thing happens. Bershopping lagi and Ariana bad mood lagi. Brought her into a toy shop just to make her happy, no intention of buying anything for her, but she found something, dan saya terus beli sebab teruja juga dengan toys yang Ariana dapat tu.

Handy Manny ciplak punya toy set, RM15. Amazingly, she knows how to use each tools.

PS : This is an unplanned blog entry sebab Enchek Kedek bising sudah dengam kesunyian blog ni. Rugi ja bayar hosting.

My 1st time…

In getting a driving license!

I wanted to start my driving lesson when I was in form 5 because most of my friends have already gotten their license and I dont want to be left behind. Talking about pengaruh rakan sebaya! :p But my dad didnt allow me. Hehe.

So, I started my driving lesson after SPM. The instructor was a chinesse guy, which from my view, was mata duitan. He insisted to bring me to Keningau, Sandakan and other place outside KK just to test my driving skill. Longer distant means longer hours means makin banyak duit! Bijak kan? But Im more bijak. Saya kelentong dia yg saya mau pigi sambung belajar sudah. Terus hujung minggu tu boleh pulak terus pegi test. Padahal sebelum banyak betul halangan.

Test-Day…
I wasnt told that I need to wear shoes in order to enter the exam room. So pihak JPJ telah menghalau saya from the exam room. I panicked. Sudahlah jauh dari rumah. Mana mau cari kasut? Then ada orang offer kasi pinjam kasut and that time, I didnt even think of kudis kah, kuman kah apa kah dlm kasut tu. yang penting paper test. But when I think of it again, YAIYYYYY!!!

Anyway, I passed the paper test with flying shoes eh colours. Next one was the bukit, 3-point turning, parking & on road test. On that day, I missed my turn (saya antara org yg terawal di panggil utk test bukit). So I have to wait sampai habis semua orang, baru start balik with my name. Adalah lebih kurang SATU HARI menunggu. Tapi tidak apa because while waiting, I overcome my panick-ness, takut-ness, risau-ness & build up my self confidence after watching people failed on the test. Hehe. And i did enjoyed laughing at them :p.

I passed all the test and I was sent home by my driving instructor. My dad saw us from a far and thought that I failed sebab the instructor yang drive tu kereta.

As soon as I got my license, dad put me on test. Driving the non-power-steering Saga on the highway in front of our house, petang-petang and me not wearing my glasses. Hebat kan? Three words from my dad, ‘SAKIT JANTUNG SAYA’. After that, dad didnt allow me to drive EVER! Or at least, whithout him in the car. On the other hand, my brother always asked me to drive pulak. Hehe

After that, I went to Kuching to study. In my group of girl-friends, there are only 2 person with driving license, while the others are more to treating you as a driver. But Im okay with that. At least I can polish my driving skills. We rent car and we jalan-jalan :p.

Then I went back to KK for good, while menanam anggur waiting for job. After 1 month, I moved to Miri to work, and definately need a car. So I told dad my intention of buying a car, and the only car that he let me buy is Kelisa. Other than that, bayar down payment sendiri. So I bought Kelisa Imago (hahahaha tamau rugi). Sometimes Green, sometimes Silver. Tagline Imago tu.. Haha!

So that was my story of ‘My first time..getting a driving license’. How about yours?

Merajuk

Kamu pernah kah merajuk….. dengan tumbuhan? I know this sounds stupid, but I actually did, tapi dengan tidak sengaja..

I bought this 1 flower from a nursery. Masa beli tu memang berkembang mekar lah bunganya. Sebab cantik, so saya beli lah. Ini cerita bulan lepas ni.

Tapi lepas beli, bunga nya x pernah berkembang lagi & tidak bertambah pun. Dari hari tu satu seja bunga yang tidak mekar tu.

Last Monday, saya dengan Enchek Kedek di luar rumah. Terus saya angkat pasu bunga tu dari para-para (apa bah namanya tempat susun2 bunga tu?), and terus letak pasu tu di lantai, sebelah pasu cili mil. Enchek Kedek tanya kenapa. I just told him that bunga ni x mau kembang lagi and I should put it down there and let the other blooming flower took its place.

And this morning….

Finally!!!

Growing up with Ariana

Hari tu, during Ariana’s school Graduation & Concert (which I have not blogged about yet), there were slideshows prepared by the teachers focussing on parents awareness on developing their child.

Pendek kata, the main thing you as the parents have to do is to communicate, respond with your child.

Enchek Kedek & me are well aware of our kesibukkan working. So whenever we have the chance to bring Ariana out for activity, we’ll do it. Even as simple as watering the plants , where Ariana usually over flooded my flower pots -_-“. But, she knows that plants needs water :).

These are few pictures of Ariana and her activity during our 4 days off 🙂

We brought her to the beach few days ago.

Let her play with sand.

Brought her to Dinotrek and let her dig out the fossils.

Bought drawing book and a new set of pencil colours and an activity book for her. I can see that she is really into drawing by the look of her almost damaged drawing book (too many drawings?) and mural on our walls T_T

Mommy’s purple elephant 🙂

Last but not least, introducing her to a new method of transportation.

Papa.. Papa.. Push!!! Push!!!

* Planning to have a baking session with Ariana using my mini cupcake/muffin maker and to decorate it together 🙂

Btw, I havent shared this kan?

My rose moss fountain.

Kenapa fountain? This idea saya dapat hasil dari mencuci mata di website Martha Stewart.

Actually boleh buat sampai 3 tingkat. Tapi kalau 3 tingkat, makin besar lah pasu yg saya kena beli untuk base.

Mau buat lagi mcm ni, tapi pakai pasu yg kecil lagi 🙂

Tragedi Oktober

Kemarin, ada tragedi.

Tragedi pagar tumbang..

Macam ini…

20121004-082037.jpg

Kemarin lepas ambil Ariana dari sekolah, saya buka pagar, tapi pagar kurang mengikut arahan. Tekan remote, pagar buka sikit ja. Mau balik2 tekan sampai muat kereta masuk.

Lepas tu, mau tutup pulak. Saya berdiri lah sebelah pagar tu kan (dekat dgn motor, kotak2 warna kelabu di dlm gambar tu) sambil tekan-tekan remote tu. Saya bagi arahan untuk tutup, tapi pagar telah men-reverse sampai terlebih reverse, terkeluar dari landasan/rail dan menimpa ke atas badan saya!

Pagar tu panjang, tinggi & gila punya berat! Bila timpa atas badan saya, saya terkejut & berusaha menahan pagar tu sambil berteriak panggil mil tapi berat!

Kebetulan ada tiang paip & di perbuat dari simen dan berjaya menahan pagar tu. Phewwww!

Lepas tu mil & saya tolak pagar tu ke dinding tembok pagar & call contractor yang install autogate tu.

Nasib Ariana belum turun dari kereta time tu. Kalau tidak, ada nanti dia tanya, ‘Hey mommy what are you doing?’ sambil meninguk saya menahan pagar -_-“
