Mini is Two!

Wednesday, September 11, 2019

My babygirl turns terrific two! The baby who came out of me after fourteen hours of labour (blogged here!) two years ago is now an active toddler who just can't stop asking and chatting away. Thank you sayang for being so easy to handle. for changing me in the best way possible and most of all, for making me a mother. I love you always, in all ways my pretty little Princess!

xoxo, N

Mini's Milestone: 22 Months

Thursday, August 1, 2019

Mini is now twenty two months old!

Last few pictures of this year's Hari Raya. This is Mini going all "I WAN AYAH HAT!"


Hariz was back in town for Hari Raya break so a meetup is a must! We brought the girls out to Kidztopia and we (Mummies & Daddies esp) had so much fun. Girls are still not playing with each other, but they're not grabbing each other's hair or quarrel over some toys so we're okay with that hehe.

Spent three nights at Barelang, blogged here.

We also had a short one night stay at Capri by Frasers JB. Super clean cos it's new and we definitely love its location, a walking distance from the checkpoint.

We also spend a lot of time at Jewel. Below pic is when Mini 'stole' a durian from two China visitors who were eating at Durian Empire lol.

Playtime with Abang.

Okay time for past month update!

Barelang Resort Batam

Saturday, July 27, 2019

When deciding on the destination for our getaway over the recent June hols, Danna and I were torn between KL and Batam. The former, despite the fact that I've been there ten times for the past four years, is always a good idea but I kinda prefer somewhere we can just chill, relax and not do much walking. Based on the title of this post, obviously we chose latter!

Since it's the first time we're travelling to Batam with Mini, Danna and I have to consider several factors before we book the ferry #1 Must have is a toilet (clean, is a must!) in case Mini surprises us with a poonami. #2. Comfortable space for a hyper toddler to run around and her Mama to breastfeed her.

Which is why we chose Majestic Fast Ferry! For just a $5 per pax top-up, we get to upgrade to a Business class which looks something like this:

A private room with four reclining chairs and two TV. There's even USB charging ports!

If you're travelling with kids, beat the queue by going into this lane.

Shuttle bus is provided only at Batam Centre. Since we reached the ferry terminal quite early, we chose to explore Megamall (located right next to the ferry terminal) before getting on the shuttle bus at 2pm. Do take note that Grab/Gojek are not allowed to pick up passengers from the hotel. Even food deliveries are not allowed in the hotel.

Finally here after a half an hour journey!
