Expecting a Baby Girl

Alhamdulillah, syukur atas rezeki dan peluang yg diberikan oleh Allah swt. In December 2013, mrs mama telah disahkan mengandung (lagi...). Minggu nie, masuk 6 bulan mrs mama pregnant. It has been 23 weeks of suspense for us. We were eager to know the baby's gender. With 3 boys in our family, we put very high hope to have a baby girl next.

Rezeki yg telah ditetapkan. We didn't plan for this pregnancy. So, no tips on how to get a baby girl ;) Kami hanya mampu berdoa...

Expected due date will be on August 20, 2014. Sempat la berhari raya dulu :D Semoga Allah swt kurniakan kesihatan yg baik buat mrs mama dan baby, InsyaAllah.

Island Getaway - Phuket, Thailand

May 30th - June 3rd, 2013 (5 Days 4 Nights)

End of last year, MAS had offered 50% rebates to redeem enrich points. We took the opportunity to redeem some of our points and got 6 return tix to Phuket (2 tix for nenek and cik nah). Then we bought an infant tix for Harraz.

During matta fair, we bought the 3D2N package from triways, which cost us RM399 for adult and RM360 for child. This package includes all; accommodation at 3* hotel, airport transfer, muslim meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner), town tour, and Phanga Bay - James Bond Island tour.

The journey started in early morning on May 30th. Our flight was scheduled at 930am. We drove our own car to KLIA and parked the car at the long term parking. We were charged RM159 for 5 days parking.

We arrived in Phuket at 945am (local time). Phuket time difference is -1. Our tour guide came late! 1 hour late! From the airport to Patong town, was about 45 minutes. Most of us slept through out the journey. We checked in at Arman Residence. The hotel serves halal food and have free wifi ☺. Ramai jugak orang M'sia duk hotel nie... 

After having lunch at the hotel, we went for the town tour. Our stops include Karon viewpoint, local silk screen t-shirt shop (they sell really cheap tshirts here!), cashew nut factory, bees farm, and monkey school. Later we had our dinner at Kusuma seafood, which is quite famous among Malaysians.

On 2nd day, we went to Phang Nga Bay for a long tail boat ride to James Bond island. Hayl was eager to mandi laut here. Tapi takdak sapa pun mandi kat sini! Takat main2 dkt gigi air je la... After James Bond island, the tour continued to other small islands.

James Bond Island

Next stop was at a fishing village, Koh Panyee. It is also known as Muslim floating village, due to the predominantly Muslim population. We had our lunch here at Panyee restaurant. After we got back from the island tour, we made one last stop at Gems gallery. Nak beli, tapi org ramai sgt, lama nak tunggu!

On the 3rd day, we checked out from Arman residence. We had arranged for a transport with the same travel agent, Phuket BlueSea travel and tours to transfer us from Arman Residence to Dusit Thani Laguna in Bang Tao. On the way to Laguna, we made quick stop at Jungceylon Mall (sempat la makan eskrem Baskin Robbins) and Harley Davidson outlet. We had our lunch at BangSanDuan Muslim Food. They serve the best tomyam! We even went to this restaurant again on our way to the airport before flying off the next 2 days.

Dusit Thani Laguna. Haha! This was the much awaited relaxing beach holiday, dedicated for our boys. Lepas dah penat berjalan sana sini, naik bot bagai, masa utk relax pulak! The boys were so looking forward to swim at the swimming pool and play at the beach.

Dusit Thani is situated in Laguna, West coast of Phuket. There are 7 hotels in the Laguna area. They have a shopping village as well, called Canal village. To find halal food here, we need to get to the Bang Tao town. It is about 5-10 minutes drive. Taxi costs 800 baht for round trip. The taxi driver took us to Sakeenah Restaurant. It is situated next to the Bang Tao mosque. The food are good and cheap :)

Days spent in Dusit Thani just to ourselves, attending the kids. They played at the Kids' Club, feeding the fish at the pond, and Hayl even tried to play petangue ;) We glad we made the trip. So, next trip... where to???
