[Baby Diary] Morning Kiss

Yesterday before sleep, baby Hayley was scrolling through my phone when she came to this picture of me feeding her...

She looked at the picture and said "nen nen" (she calls me "nen nen") then kissed the screen.

Awwwwwww... *my heart melts delightfully like an icecream"


The next morning when we woke up, she turned to her papa, held his face with one hand, and planted a kiss on his lips. Then she turned to me and did the same.

Soooooo sweet. *love*

[Baby Diary] The Big Bad Pocket Pouch!

I realized that I have been neglecting to record down precious moments of our baby, due to being too busy at work or too tired to blog when at home. 

So, I am starting a new category called "Baby Diary" to capture little snippets of moments with baby Hayley, something that we'll look back in the future and read and laugh together about.

Yesterday, while Skype-ing with my parents, Hayley was busy as usual taking out all the remote controls from the black IKEA FLÖRT remote control pocket pouch attached to the couch. Suddenly her face turned red and she cried! She had stuck her hand into the pocket and could not get it out. She must have thought that the pocket pouch was eating her hand up!

She was still crying after we freed her hand. After that, I acted as though my hand was stuck and the pocket pouch was eating it up. I said, "Hayley, Hayley... help help... save Mama" but she wandered further and further from me while looking at the pouch with a scared face! Guess it's a lost case on that one, ha! :-P

A very full week

It's that time of the year again where my hubby has to go on his annual pilgrimage to USA. We left our baby with my parents at my hometown, so I enjoyed my freedom at home.

The perfect idea of me staying at home would be: after work, go back home and laze on the couch watching Korean dramas all day, while slurping shin ramyeon and downing the occasional Big Mac. Well, I'm so happy that I did manage to get my perfect time at home this time... hahahahahahahaha! There was a US vistor at my office too, so I had been eating full meals at lunch and even skipped thinking of what to eat for dinner.

Let me jot down what I did for a week, and also comment on some new eateries that I managed to try out.

Monday - Had team lunch at Jawi House, Armenian Street. I ordered a lamb briyani. We also chanced on the BBC Indian Summer film crew doing their production at Armenian Street. But the real surprise for me came when I saw the ink painting of Busan's Haedong Yunggung temple hanging in the art gallery upstairs in the restaurant! Dinner - skipped.

Tuesday - Had project lunch with US visitor at Penmutiara Restaurant, Batu Maung. This restaurant is a favourite for us because of its great halal food and proximity to our office. I love its fish head curry. Dinner - skipped.

Wednesday - Had lunch buffet with US visitor at Maritime Waterfront Hotel. It was a RM19.90 lunch buffet. Nothing much to complain about! Had dinner with fellow friends who studied at Korea, at the newly opened BBQ Chicken Restaurant at Elite Heights. We ordered two and a half chickens for five of us. The Paris-style chicken wings was yum, but the olive oil fried chicken was a miss.

Thursday - Just normal zhap fan lunch for a break. Dinner was Mushroom Chicken Maggi Mee. 

Friday - Ate lunch at Canton-i in Queensbay Mall. Thank God it's Friday! For dinner, my friend and I initially planned to have dinner and cocktails at Mish Mash, Muntri Street, but it was raining cats and dogs and we couldn't get out of the car. So we parked inside Gurney Paragon and ate Johnny Rockets hamburger and famous milkshake. By the time we finished dinner and shopping, the rain had already stopped, so we did go for those cocktails after all!

Saturday - I went back to my hometown for the weekend. Mamas food is the best!

Sunday - I bought some Groupon vouchers so we ate at Ben's TSG Burgers at Ipoh Parade. We took all three flavours - mushroom, fish and beef. The former two tasted quite nice actually but the beef patty was totally falling apart! Very bad. Totally could not compare to Johnny Rockets.

Monday - Hubby is back from USA! We took leave from work and went to watch Everest at Gurney Plaza. After the movie we ate Honeycreme soft serve icecream with honeycomb at Gurney Plaza basement.

Tuesday - Wednesday is a holiday for hubby! We went for a date night cum 6th anniversary celebration at Yella Fork. Hubs ordered a Pie in The Sky while I ordered Porky Choppy. The potato wedges were sooooo good! We topped it off with a Tiger beer and a glass of red wine. It's affordable Australian cuisine... yum! 

8 new restaurants out of 10 restaurants in about a week! That breaks the record, YEAH!!!~
