Trip to Sabah

After working so hard for a year....we decided to make a trip to Sabah for holiday.  This is the first trip for my 2 kids and hubby.  I been to Sabah once when I was at 10 years and stay in Papar for 1 months during school holiday before we moved Sibu.  However, I also forgetten about Sabah.

We went on 4d3n trip and fly by AirAsia.  We also rent a car and it is easier to go around.  On day 1, we went straight to Kundasang and stay a night there.  Let see the picture
Rumah terbalik in Sabah.  No photo inside the house.  Everything is terbalik.

See, the christmas tree and snowman also upside down.

This is the place we stay in Kundasang. Mile 36 and it is so cool here.

Back dated post

I was very busy in the office and also at home.  As I mentioned earlier in my previous post, it was my birthday and also my hubby birthday in November.

A simple celebration for us because we have more important think to handle last month.  My mother feel down and her back bone fractured.  Sent her to medical centre and did CT Scan and MRI, doctor said she got silent stroke but her MRI show good result so admission for her.  But she can't walk on her own and she need some one to hold her.  So, I get my friend's daugther who is a physiotherapy to come to my house and teach her how to walk and we also send her for acupuncture.  Now she is better but she still complaint on her back.

Luckily it is school holiday and my little Cyn is at home to help around and she is really helping me. Once a while I will still go back during lunch to see them.

Hopefully mum will get better soon.

Simple Dinner

Usually I don't cook on weekday because I leave the kitchen to my mum.  I will be late when I reached home.  But I will give a menu to her so that she don't have to think what to cook.  She followed my menu and do the cooking.

But for weekend, I prefer to cooking something special for them.  I usually will try to cook spicy food for my hubby and my mum will decide not cooking spicy food as she can't take hot food.  I will also cook something no spicy for my little Maine.

Out with Friends

Out with friends....of course not me...it is my eldest girl.  Now she know how to request to go out with her friend.  When she go out, I will give her RM50 for the spending.  I think it is a lot of money for a teenager for her but when she tell me she is going for movie, lunch, karaoke....I think it is not enough.  She finishes her RM50.

Since daddy & mummy has to send her to shopping centre, we have cup of Starbuck before we go for shopping.

Maine posing at Starbuck.

Health Walk and Yoga

We went for Health Walk on 12 Oct 2014 at Bandar Botanic, Klang.

It is in conjunction with World Mental Health Day and the distance around 4km.  The whole family went and my eldest daughter is very excited to join.  She said we should joined this type of event frequently.  No prize giving for walk but everyone receive a goody bag and breakfast.

Yangon, Myanmar

I was assigned to Yangon, Myanmar recently for business trip.  I went there with our agent for 4 days to interview workers.  The trip was enjoyable as we also went for a short trip after we finished our interview session.

It is an interesting place to visit as I remind me of the 80s in Malaysia.  We went to Shwedogan Pagoda or Great Dagon Pagoda.  

Made of gold



Yangon at 6.30am....so bright
 Then we went to Bogyake Aung San Market on the next day.  I bought some souvenir for family and friends.



Let see the food available in Yangon



The food are not bad also but some of the food are a bit sour like the soup on the top.  They like to eat the food that are barbaquee.
