12-12-12

Today is another significant date 12-12-12...and in less than one day, me and hubs will be having our wedding anniversary..and its our 10th Year..Alhamdullilah.
 
Well, actually there's a lot been happening and let me just summarized.
 
Ok on my first born Nazif Irfan, Alhamdullilah he finally completed his first year of preschool. So next year he'll be continuing his preschool at the same place. We were truly thankful on his achievement, we never set any target for his first year at the preschool, let him go with the flow. He's more independent now I might say.
 
While waiting for bus his little Ihtifal rehearsal..he was excited!

His little ihtifal on November..yes this Mummy cried..tu belum anak grad kindy..tgk anak org lain pun nanges!
 
His achievement..for his record..

And my first born..amacam hensem?

 
 
Ok..what about the other little fella? Naqib Imran Alhamdullilah is also doing well. Still very much attached to me, finally wean off from miss B on his birthday. He's catching up on the speech side, thankfully, and has started on the 'terrible two' phase which I prefer calling as 'trying and testing' phase. But he still very much my little baby and very manja one too..
 
My not-so-little boy anymore

He also wants a school bag..

Perth Trip - Last Part

Today is our last day in Perth.

First agenda of the day, its the Western Australia  Museum. Its school holiday in Perth and they were having special theme for the children, DINOSAUR! The entrance fee was free, so of course we have to go!
 
This also marked the children's first time to the museum. In my opinion, it was great! It was definitely very child-friendly, Nazif and Naqib had lots of activities to do. Well except when it comes to the animal exhibition, both of them were scared looking at the real-sized animals.

Next, we decided to go for a ferry ride! We took a ferry operated under Transperth to South Perth. The journey was about 15 mins. And as other public transport in Perth, the ferry was also child-friendly, they had special area for parents with youngs who usually brought stollers.

The Ferry Ride
 
At South Perth, we just let the children run freely at the park. It was noon by the time we took the ferry back to Perth CBD.
 

View from South Perth, breath taking!
 
By this time we were very very hungry! So it was a race to find to the halal eateries that we already planned to. We finally found Insan's Cafe, after going through back and forth along the Murray Street. Maybe due to low sugar we did'nt find it at first.
 
 
 
After lunch, we continued with more souvenir shopping and sight seeing along the Hay and Murray Street Mall area. Then took our last bus ride back to the hotel. That night we were busy with packing our luggage cause by at 3.a.m the Airport Connect Bus will fetch us to the airport.
 
And basically that's the end of our Perth story. Alhamdullilah we finally back, safe and sound in Malaysia on Friday afternoon.

He's TWO!

Alhamdulilah, on 3rd September 2012, Naqib Imran the cheeky boy of mine turns two years!

 

 
 
Truly your are the rainbow in our life! Mummy berdoa anak Mummy membesar sebagai anak yang soleh, diberi kesihatan yang baik, di anugerah budi pekerti yang terpuji dan minda yang cergas. Untuk menjadikan semua itu, first of all must come from Mummy and Daddy with the help of Allah Taala. And yes, we are proud to have you dear son in our life and we thank Allah for these great gifts.
 
The next major milestone now is to wean you off from BF. Its challenging no doubt but I hope this is the right decision I've made. Muga dipermudahkan, Amin.

Perth Trip Part 4

Continuation from my last post...which was way back in August.

On the fourth day, we started with King's Park before by sending off our rental car at Alamo Car Rental. We didn't stay long there as it was windy and cold! Had a stroll at the park and camwhoring!

Cam-whoring at King's Park

After that, we send off the rental car.
And from there we just crossed the street to Harbour Town Outlet! Its shopping time!

Harbour Town Outlet

Info: Most of the brands at the outlet are Australian brand which most of may not be very familiar of except for Pumpkin Patch and Cotton On. Bought the boys baju raya at Pumpkin Patch at very reasonable price. For lunch we had Ispa Kebab the halal food available at the outlet. And for solat,there's  a Prayer Room located in the Customer Service Office, complete with Wudhu' area.
 
 
Finishing off the day, we had leisure walk around Perth CBD ( with buses laa)..bought another round of Ispa Kebab because we were hungry again. The end of day 4.

Perth Trip Part 3

Perth Day 3
Today we plan to go further down to Mandurah for sight seeing.

On the way to Mandurah
Sight seeing around Dolphin Quays and its cold!

We also had our lunch here, again picnic style. The kids had fun roaming freely at the playground.

Then after lunch, hubby decided to drive to Araluen Botanic Park. Thanks to GPS, we had no trouble finding the right place. However there's not so much flowers booming since its winter. But still the scenery was breathtaking. Not many people at the park, its like we have the whole park to ourselves.

Araluen Botanic Park

We didn't stay long there and we decided to try our luck with Waterwheel Persimmon Farm. But sadly, its closed. Lastly we headed back to Perth but had a pitstop at Fremantle again. This time we went to Target and Coles , the latter for grocery shopping.

And then, its time to go back to the hotel!

Perth Trip Part 2

Ok continued from my previous post, after Cicerellos we walked around Fremantle and then later shopped at E-Shed for souvenirs. First day dah shop for souvenir? Well its because it was Sunday and E-Shed market were open from Friday to Sunday only, and that's why. Hehe..

After that, we headed back to Perth CBD since it was getting dark. And that's the end of day 1. We retired very early that night cause we've been up very early and the children are getting tired. In fact Naqib went to sleep right after we boarded the Transpert train..sampai tak sempat nak tukar baju semua dah.

More of Fremantle, The souvenir shop that we went and Nazif posing sakan


Day 2
After breakfast, we took the bus to the car rental office. Hubby already booked a car for two days. Today's agenda would be the Caversham Wildlife Park located at Whiteman Park.

Breaking the ice with Kangaroos
Wombats and Friends show, The Koala and Molly's Farm

We really had fun here and the children especially. For lunch, we had a picnic at the farm and it was such an experience..so leisure and serene..mmg bestla.

We headed out from the wildlife park quite late in the afternoon. Before the sunset, we stopped by at Margaret River Chocolate Factory for free chocolate tasting!

Perth Trip



Alhamdullilah, with His rezeki we finally landed our little family for a family vacation to Perth. I'll just go through very brief on our itenerary but with loads of pictures..hehehe..
Departure Night - 7 July 2012
We departed for Perth with AirAsiaX on 7th July and landed in the wee hours of morning. After going through the immigration and custom check ( Alhamdulilah we passed through without luggage checking), we performed our solat at the airport before we got to the hotel.

We stayed at Sullivans Hotel which was located at Mountsbay Road. The staff were very friendly and we managed to get early check-in ( 2 hours early)as what was requested during booking. But just before our rooms were ready, we had our first sight seeing near the hotel compound. Once we got our room, we freshen ourselves and got ourselves to our first destination, Fremantle.

Serene view along Mountsbay Road
Fremantle


We went to Fremantle by taking the train. By the time we arrived, we straight away looked for Cicerellos for our lunch. Dah kebulur time tu, plus with the cold and windy weather lagilah. We had fish and chip set and seafood set which were abundance! ( So tapaued the F&C as our dinner).

Oh dear, had to stop for the time being. Will continue later.
