Langkawi Day 2 - SkyCab @ Cable Car

Hi you all, 

Jom sambung cerita holiday kat Langkawi. 
On day 2, we all semua bangun awal. Lepas subuh takde sambung golek2 tidur lagi, anak2 pon bangun awal sebab dah inform dorang sebelum tidur that we have to get ready early untuk naik cable car. After all, cable car ni one of the most attraction yg paling popular dekat Langkawi, memang confirm orang akan sangatlah ramai. So, kitaorg atur strategi utk arrive as early as we can. Usually opening hours dia at 9am, tapi sebab cuti sekolah, dia bukak at 8.30am. 

Bertolak from De Baron Resort dalam pukul 8.10am. Kitaorg breakfast roti dalam kereta je. Memang x amik pakej breakfast dekat hotel. We reach Oriental Village around 8.40am. 
Dekat sini ada 2 jenis parking zone. Primer parking yg lebih dekat jaraknya dengan Oriental Village while normal parking RM3 for the 1st hour lepas tu kena charge RM1. 
Yg primer parking tu RM10 utk per entry. Sesuai la kalau korang bawa orang kurang upaya, or warga emas. 

Walking to the oriental village
all exited nak naik cable car

I have bought our cable car ticket (including the package) from the Tripcarte.Asia

Actually we all beli Langkawi Cable Car Basic Combo 

 SkyCab Combo Basic

This basic combo includes

+ Access to Cable Car with Standard Gondola
+ Access to 3D Art Gallery
+ Access to SkyRex
+ Access to SkyDome


They are other packages for Langkawi Island holiday that can be found from this website. 
Check the below link:

the best thing purchasing from this website is no reservation time/date required and the tickets are valid for 6 months. 
Kalau beli from website Cable Car sendiri, kena letak date utk redeem. 

Main reason buying from this website is to avoid the long queue. We just need to bring this email and show them the QR code. No need to print, but I do print in case something went wrong with my hp. 





For those who had bought their online ticket, just proceed to Counter No 6 to redeem your ticket. 

We all dapat boarding time at 9am. So, no long que at all. 

One whole family 


Mine me and me
This little girl of mine, love you so much syg.

the boys 

at the 1st pit stop, middle station. you can choose to keluar dari cable car and amik gambar dekat sini dulu or boleh stay inside your cable car and teruskan perjalanan ke top station.
we did not go out the cable car.
Kitaorg malas nak turun sini sbb nanti kena beratur nak boarding semula utk ke top station. 

Top Station view

Sorry Iyaadh sayang,Umi and Ayah feeling2 honeymoon..:)

From the top station, you can have your breakfast at their cafe. Also, boleh purchase ticket utk ke SkyBridge. Harga tiket ke SkyBridge cuma RM5 per person, through Nature Walk where you have to walk/climb a bit the staircase for about 300m to the SkyBridge.

Otherwise, boleh choose utk naik SkyGlider. The price I am not sure sgt sbb we all mmg option for Nature Walk, coz both of us love the nature.

Nature Walk to SkyBridge

At the skybridge

Along the way mmg ada information board related to this geoheritage and the infrastructure


the glass bridge

kena take off your shoes before you can step on the glass.

only few parts of the bridge are made of the glass. 

with my youngest baby

MashaAllah, You are the Creator of this world!
Superb view from the top.
It was windy and breeze and the sun just set up, so we really enjoy our experience up there. the tips is, pergi awal pagi!

Since we did not have a proper breakfast, so we did have a short breakfast stop on the skybridge!

my children. 

He is so cool. tak gayat langsung.

By the time we reach down at the entrance of the skycab, the lines are getting longer. It was aboud 10.45am when we reached down.



Along the way sepanjang dekat skycab and skybridge, akan ada banyak photo points, where the staff will take our family photo and print it. they also print it on mugs, thumblers, etc. the price is of course a bit pricey. and you can choose to buy all of them in combo package or you can also choose not to buy. it's up to you but just bare in mind, since before boarding sampai la dekat nak turun, mmg banyak offers for our photos printed on the merchandise + frame. 

Ok that's all for skybridge. lepas ni we all pergi 3D musuem and SkyRex pulak. 

stay tune.

Langkawi 2018 : Day 1

Hello semua. Assalamualaikum. 

I am very teruja nak update blog pasal our latest holiday in Langkawi. Sebenarnya, this holiday is a real need for all five of us. Last yr hujung tahun, kitaorg x bercuti ke mana. cuma balik kampung, and ke hotel atas urusan kerja je. Anak2 pon x kemana. Tapi kids kan, dorang x pandai complaint kata nak bercuti or anything. dpt mandi swimming pool dorang dah happy. So masuk bulan Jan aritu, we started to think maybe perlu jugak take a break. So, decided ke Langkawi. Booking hotel, ticket ferry roro and cable car/skycab kitaorg buat sebelum pergi. 

So pada hari kejadian, kitaorg bertolak from rumah my parents dkt BM. pukul 9pg baru keluar rumah sbb x jauh sgt penang ke kuala perlis. kitaorg amik ferry roro. yg boleh bawa kereta naik skali. jadi dkt langkawi tak perlu sewa kereta dah. nnt i citer procedures utk bawa kereta masuk ke langkawi. 

We all sampai jetty kuala perlis around 11.30am. Register kereta and amik tiket. pukul 12.40 baru nak mula boarding masuk ferry. 1.30 baru ferry nak jalan. So mmg ada banyak masa. Kitaorg decide pergi Muzium Kota Kayang dulu. 5km dari jetty kuala perlis. 



Gambar sumber Website Muzium

Masa kitaorg sampai kat sini, takde pengunjung and takde taker pon. We all masuk je la. Muzium ni fully aircond and selesa. Belakang muzium ada taman kecik, sesuai for picnic if x panas. 



Ilyaas mmg skrg stage nak tahu banyak benda so muzium is a good way to kill his queries. and he is currently into any kind of weapons. So mmg dia baca every single descriptions about keris, tombak, badik etc yg ada dlm muzium tu. 

After dah settle tgk2 kat sini, kitaorg proceed for lunch kat restoran nelayan tepi jetty tu. 

I makan laksa. 
Kecewa. 
X sedap mcm dulu. 
Kuah dia cair je. 


Lepas tu kitaorg terus ke jetty kargo then dan mula boarding. 
Kerata semua kena park kat level 1. 
Penumpang boleh duduk kt level 2 and 3. 
level 2 bertutup, ada aircond and tv. also ada surau and small kiosk jual makanan ringan.


Ni dekat level 2 dlm ferry roro. 
kat level 3 open air, so best dpt angin laut.

dekat top deck.level 3.

Once sampai Langkawi, we all arrive dkt jetty area Bukit Malut. Tak sama dgn jetty kuah. 
So less sesak and cepat je urusan. Terus ke hotel. 

I dah booking De Baron Resort.  Booking through Booking.com
Amik family room, excluding breakfast. dapat rm210 per night. ok la tu. Bilik luas dan selesa. I recommend hotel ni sbb location dia mmg mudah nak cari kedai makan, farmasi, dekat dgn RAMS (also good place for shopping barang letrik, pinggan mangkuk, periuk belanga and coklat). and also dkt night market.
Worth it la. view pon not bad. 



Lepas rehat and solat, bawa anak2 ke pool.


Ni view Harbour Kuah dari resort. 
Nice view, kalau waktu sunset. 
Cuma pantai dia sikit and tak berapa bersih sbb dkt dgn tpt ferry and kapal layar berlabuh.
dari sini boleh nampak dataran lang jugak, so mmg sgt dkt dengan jetty kuah.

Cuaca kat Langkawi mmg dah terkenal panas and kering. Time ni dh lepas 5.30 tp matahari terik lagi. Anak2 mandi pool dgn ayah dorg. I malas nak mandi sbb ramai sgt.


Ni view from tempat I lepak sambil dorang mandi manda. 
ada 2 slides besar. puas jugak la budak2 bermain.


lepas mandi, semua dah kelaparan. so dorg makan biskut2 yg dah bawa dulu. 
plan nya nak makan malam kat wan thai restaurant yg famous. tp seating full and kena tnggu one hr nak dpt makanan. sbb dah lpar, kitaorg makan kat kedai thai lain. 
tp puas hati jugak sbb sedap and portion yg besar. 

lepas dah habis makan,terus ke HIG complex.
Shopping bag, tea set and coklat. 

ni baru 1st round shopping. orang ramai sgt kat HIG complex so x sempat amik gambar. 

settle shopping at about 9.30 terus balik hotel and zzzzz..

end of day 1.

Permohonan Tahun 1 Ambilan 2018/2019

Hi you all, 

Anak kedua I, Imani skrg 5 years old. By year 2020, dia akan mula bersekolah darjah 1. 

Sekarang dah boleh buat pendaftaran online yer. dekat website KPM. Sistem Pendaftaran Atas Talian! 
So much easier than my first son yg kena register manual dekat sekolah. 

So the details are as below ya:-



Maklumat mengenai permohonan kemasukan Tahun 1 ambilan 2018/2019 adalah seperti berikut:
  1. Permohonan melalui Sistem Pendaftaran Atas Talian (SPAT) KPM - hanya untuk seluruh negeri di Semenanjung Malaysia sahaja. Manakala bagi Negeri Sabah, Sarawak dan Wilayah Persekutuan Labuan, permohonan adalah secara manual melalui sekolah.  
    • Dibuka mulai 1 Mac 2017 hingga 30 April 2017
    • Hanya ibu/bapa/penjaga sahaja yang dibenarkan membuat permohonan bagi murid tersebut
    • Layari https://public.moe.gov.my/ untuk akses ke sistem permohonan dalam talian bagi pengguna berdaftar. Manakala bagi pengguna baharu, sila layari https://public.moe.gov.my/?kpm=daftarpenggunauntuk pendaftaran pengguna baharu.

Nota Penting: Perlu ada buku rekod kesihatan anak bersama sewaktu nak isi borang ni yer. 
Maklumat vaccination anak diperlukan. 
Untuk yg anak anti-vac tu, saya xpasti la yer mcm mana. 
Agaknya kena home-schooling je la kot. sbb sekolah pun x boleh nak accept if your child is not vaccinated. 
I also cannot accept if my daughter or son terpaksa bergaul rapat dengan kawan2 yg tidak di vaksin. 
maaf la ye kalau ada yg terasa. 
it's our personal choice so don't expect the whole world to accept your choice not to vaccine your kids. 


Rekod kesihatan anak sangat penting! 
jangan ambil lewa! 
Vaksinlah anak anak mengikut apa yg telah disarankan kerajaan. 
Kalau berkemampuan, ambil vaksin tambahan seperti rotavirus, pneumococcal dan sebagianya. 


eh, entry ni jadi entry promote vaksin pulak rather than the year 1 registration. 

*2 in 1* 

till then, let's menabung for kids future too!

The IHs and my 31st birthday

Assalamualaikum my dear blog,

I miss writing to you. It has been some time since I really wrote properly. 
2018 has been very good so far. For family and for my career. 

My eldest has been schooling in primary school. Nearby our house.
He had been appointed as Ketua Kelas.
And he is now wearing a pair of spectacle, just like me and his father. But I think he follows his father more than me because the father wore spectacles since Standard 2.


My second has changed to new kindy, get some dramatic sessions at the new kindy and I decided to take her out from that kindy and move her back to the previous years' kindy. 
She is in good hands now, at least that's what my husband and I feel. She also has Stage 2 tonsilitis. We had been seeing E&T specialist and the doctor said as for now, we had to monitor her very closely. If she experiences fever more than 4-6 times a year, we need to consider for the operation to remove the tonsil.


My youngest has been so cheeky that every day he will pinch my face and kiss me to show that he misses me for the day that he had to stay at the babysitter. He can pronounce some words already like Mama, Babah, Nak, Dah, Tanak, Yayah, Abang, Kakak.. He lost some weight though, I think he has been very active and cheerful. Also dah pandai merajuk and memilih what to eat or to wear and what not to. He can climb the stairs by himself now, but that always gives me a little heart attack. I realize that I write very little about Iyaadh for last year. I will try to write more frequent bout him, since the abang and the kakak got lots of blog entry for themselves. It's just 3rd child syndrome and umi doesn't have enough time.


May Allah Swt always protect them from any kecelakaan and kemungkaraan


Well, I had turned 31 in early February and I received multiple surprise celebration. 
Started by my husband who bought me a surprise birthday present. Sembonia handbag that comes with 3-in-1 package. I love it. The big handbag is so formal and big. It can fit my xps dell laptop, so it is good for my daily usage to classes and for formal meetings. The second bag is my type. A sling bag, with the same pattern as the formal one. Just I prefer this one more than the first one because  I can use it for casual daily usage as well as for traveling. The third bag is a pencil case, with the same pattern of the first and the second handbag. I never use the pencil case yet. I am waiting for the perfect time to use it, perhaps when I am starting my doctorate study sooner, Insya Allah.

us at UTP new coffee cafe-Tepee.that has become our fav lepak time wherever we have time for some coffee together.

The day before my birthday, my research students made a surprise celebration again, by coming over to my office with some unrealistic dramas and end up with cake cutting ceremony in my office. Thanks guys. I appreciate it very much.

nabilah, my MSc student who did the surprise together with her other friends.

About two weeks later when I went back to Terengganu for CNY holiday, my sister in law who got married to my brother Imran, made another long-distance surprise where she requested her friends to help her buy some cake, balloons and choc bouquet to be delivered to my in laws house. Thanks so much Yana and Imran. That really made my day and I was very very surprised.

Review Hand Blender Phillips bought from LAZADA!

Assalamualaikum and Hi semua :)


I am back now! hahah seriously I don't know how I can squeeze in some time every day now to write here. Maybe azam tahun baru kot. 

So, today, I nak share dgn korang semua pasal satu product yg sgt best. Kira mcm bibik letrik I kat dapur. Which is Philips Hand Blender! 




I beli from LAZADA dah dekat 2 years ago masa LAZADA tgh SALE. 

Sekarang pun tengah SALE korang!!! 

Chinese New Year Sale!!!



Harga asal RM200++

Now Sale RM80++ je !!! 

Diskaun banyak kot. I even beli kan hand blender Philips ni untuk bagi wedding gift for my office mate jugak sebab I sendiri suka pakai. 


Bayangkan I beli more than 2yrs ago and my bibik letrik @ Philips Hand Blender still working at superb condition! So, kualiti barang yg dibeli from LAZADA sangat lah terjamin ok. bukan ciplak pumya.


To be honest, ada hand blender ni, korang xperlu dah kot ada blender biasa tu. Utk tugas memasak utk satu rumah yg dlm 5-6 orang kira hand blender ni dah sgt helpful. 




Ni I blend bawang putih. Ke I buat mash potato eh? 

I pon xingt sebab ni gambar few months ago. But really, it gives the best texture I wanted for my food. 



This is my weekend routine, untuk sediakan bawang blend. 

See, mudah sgt. And sebabI bukanlah masak all the days (ada cheat days too), so my bawang yg di blend dgn hand blender ni enough for at least two weeks tau! of course la kena simpan dalam bekas tupperware yg sesuai too. eh, terpromote tupperware pulak. hahaha


Apart from the bawang, bubur baby pon sgt mudah nak di hancurkan guna philips hand blender ni. 

Tak caya, korang kena la beli n try sendiri.. 

You will love it as much as I do! 

Thank you so much LAZADA sebab buat sale philips hand blender ni. Kalau tak sale, kena kumpul duit 2 bulan dulu baru boleh beli. Since ada sale, tak teragak2 la I all nak beli. 

Since sekarang pon tengah sale dkt LAZADA 

Actually, bukan setakat Philips Hand Blender je yg I beli from LAZADA, pampers anak almost setiap bulan from LAZADA (hahahahaha)..

mesin potong rumput pon kitaorg beli from LAZADA and a lot more!!!

Bali Trip 2017-Day 1- an experience that we will never forget

Assalamualaikum and Salam Sejahtera semua, 

Last year, 20-21 May, my husband dgn I attend satu conference dekat Bali. 
As usual, kami ambil peluang ni untuk jadikan percutian keluarga sekali. Tambah duit utk bayar tiket flight anak2 as well as tambah cuti tahunan. 

Kami pilih Malaysia Airlines sbb flying with kids, nak selesa sikit. 


Kesian Iyaadh nampk dahi and mata je. 
Dah la redha je dia duduk dalam stroller pink. 
Stroller Imani dulu. 



Abang Ilyaas and Kakak Imani


Dalam flight, I dapat seat next to Imani, and Iyaadh was with me. Halim and Ilyaas duduk seats few row belakang kitoarg. I dgn Imani row depan skali sebab nak attach dgn basinet. Sebelah Imani seorang lelaki from India, I think. 



Dah order kids meal siap2, so Imani punya food sampai dulu. Dapat pulak her favorite chicken spaghetti. Habis licin dia makan except for the chicken balls. Apa jenis balls pon dia tak suka makan mek Imani ni. 



Enjoying her food. Budak ni nampak je tenang. Dia punya bnyk cakap and kuat melawan tu mmg cannot tahan. Bikin umi dia stress all the time. 
Really copy-cat perangai I suka menjawab!



Sebab Umi kena handle adik Iyaadh yg also cannot duduk diam, Imani kena makan sendiri la. 


Si adik ni tak boleh letak baring dalam bassinet. Terus terjaga. Telinga nipis betul. Bila tidur berpelukan, baru nak nyenyak. Jangan harap la umi nak berehat dalam flight. 


Layan budak ni dah cukup puas. Eeeiii, ni before kitaorg botakkan rambut dia. 
Tapi muka dulu ngn sekarang sama je. 



Sweet boy of mine. 

Dalam flight ni ada satu experience yg I tak kan boleh lupa. Ada one uncle passed away dlm flight ni. He was sitting in the same row dgn I. 

Dari awal sebelum boarding lagi, uncle ni mmg dh naik wheel chair. anak dia yg uruskan dia. he looks really not healthy. dalam flight, seat dkt dgn window takde orang mulanya, so the daughter ubah ayah dia ke tepi window so that ayah dia boleh sandarkan kepala. tibe2, datang sorang mat saleh ckp tu tempat dia and nak duduk situ. so si anak tadi cuba nak kejutkan bapak dia utk ubah ke tempat asal..tp bapak dia nampak sgt lemah and tak larat nak bergerak. So , mat saleh tu pun duduk je la dkt seat paling luar nearby the aisle. Which is next to me. 

Around 30 minutes before nak landing, kan ada announcement from pilot. masa tu, si anak perempuan tadi cuba kejutkan bapak dia. oh btw, masa makan pon, uncle tu tak bangun. anak dia ckp xyah kejut kat bapak dia masa pramaguri nak serve kan food. 

nak jadi kan cerita, bapak dia mmg x bangun2 dah. he went during his sleep. anak dia pon xsedar bila bapak dia passed away. so peaceful. ada pramugari cuba nak bagi oksigen, but no response. so they called out any doctors in the plane, and one turned out and did the checking. mmg the father already passed away for some time. and nothing can be done. 

I heard the daughter said that her father had cancer and just finished chemotherapy few days back. they are traveling to their hometown in Bali. yes, they do look like local people from Bali. She was also carrying a big bag of medicine, belongs to her father. She started shouting and crying, for few seconds and then she realized that nothing can be done so she just hold him tightly until we landed in Ngurah Rai Airport. And medical team was already there in the airport waiting to arrange for the body. 

Well, once landed, we waited for our bags and we were greeted by the driver from our hotel. 


This time around, we stayed in Kuta Paradiso Hotel. Luckily sebab we all buat booking through email, terus dapat upgrade to family room for free of charge. It was so luxurious and spacious for all of us. In fact Iyaadh had his own baby cot too. 




Also dpt welcome drink and welcoming fruit platter in the room. 

Ok nnt continue lagi :)
