Little vandals

New condos and houses are being built along our entrance road home.  Dropped by one day just to 'kepoh' (be nosy).  Inside the showhouse was this room decked out like a painting room.  The girls discovered it while I was looking into other rooms.

Painting stuff!

Let's paint!

Be happy like me hehe

I looked to see if it was ok to use the paints and decided it was fine.  Until one young staff there finally showed up at the small room and was dumbfounded at the 'additional decorations'.  So we quickly hightailed it out of there.  Well actually I called out to SE few times but she didn't come.  Instead she stayed in there for a good 15mins or so with that unfortunate young staff tailing her from room to room while she continued touching this and that.  Finally I went in to retrieve her.  And later she told me it wasn't so fun because "this person keep on following me".

Hubby asked how come I didn't realise they weren't supposed to paint??  Well too bad he being so smart didn't watch her closely.  :p

I wonder if they have cleaned the room up.  JE is embarrassed when we pass by this place and I remind her of it hehe.

Toothpaste blobs

I'd been buying Kodomo toothpaste for the kids.  Until recently when my mum reminded that JE should be using adult toothpaste already.  Googled and oops, yes supposed to change when permanent teeth come in!  That happened 2 years already for JE and is happening for SE now.

Kiddos don't like mint toothpaste though.  And I have stocks of Kodomo.

So... now every morning and night, I diligently put TWO little blobs of toothpaste on each toothbrush - one blob of Kodomo and one of Colgate/Darlie.  Labour of love haha.

Four blobs of toothpaste and two tooth-mugs of water

The plan is to get the girls used to mint.  Then no more Kodomo.

SE's weekly packing

We need to haul our stuff every week between home and apartment. Kiddos aren't too useful in helping.  Especially SE.  She'd be fussing over this and that.  And look at what she has to bring:

Toys inside BeeBee, check. 
Raspberry (the white bunny in crook of arm), check.
Toys inside penguin bag, check.
Pink whale hanging on penguin bag, check.
Bunnyball in pocket of penguin bag, check.

Let me think...

Yep, I'm ready

No capacity at all to help with anything of importance!

Spotted this promo online and purposely went to Italiannies.  :) 

This exceeded my expectations that the pizza was given on top of the free kids meal.  I'd assumed the pizza would replace the meal.  Also didn't expect the staff to be so attentive throughout the session.

We are suited up and ready!

Take the sauce and swirl it round

They were given various condiments... sauce, cheese, mushroom, carrot cubes, pineapple.  Well not that many but good enough.  MY girls didn't want to put pineapple since they didn't like those.  Nor mushroom.  I had to try hard to get them to put everything (since it's free haha) and only partially succeeded.

Almost done

Went back to our table for lunch.  In the meantime the pizzas were baked and served when done.

Can eat already!

Good experience indeed.

When the little one is in a rage, she's like a predator.

You have angered me

I will be right here

Be afraid. Very afraid.

I'm also afraid actually.

Genting Part 2

What did we do at Genting?  First, hubby threw RM300 at the arcades. Hahhaa.  Well it was RM10 a pop at the various stalls thus the money flew quickly (with nothing to show for it either).  Then hubby had to try his luck getting little toys from machine games.  This had slightly better returns compared to the stalls but I was like... thought the kids were supposed to be playing and not YOU??  So he bought another card for them and they managed to get some action.

Shoot! Shoot! (Fish toy between them being the first of arcade toys)

We hadn't walked around all the sections before. Was quite nice to meander around looking at this and that.

Since it wasn't regular school holidays, Genting wasn't too crowded. Got the day pass for the indoor theme park.  I noticed a few rehashed rides from the old days when JE was small.  They had strict height limits though and even SE couldn't get to ride those any more.

Check out our horses!

And our car!

One thing even without crowds, it does take quite some time to get to the actual ride. The process to scan in, people choosing the horse/car/carriage etc and getting in/on, the staff going round to check the safety belts.  The kids were thrilled, the adults were EXHAUSTED haha.  There weren't that many benches to sit on while waiting.  Neither hubby nor me are into rides so we didn't get passes for ourselves.

Yay we got cotton candy!

The kids mostly went on rides separately.  JE liked the sky tower one which SE was too scared to try.  SE went on this ferris wheel all by herself.  Actually I was rather scared for her.  This ride is very high - what if she fiddled with the door and managed to open it while her car was at the top?  She was alone in the car.  There was a parent-and-child queuing up with SE but the ride attendant motioned them to the next car.  And the wheel kept stopping to let people in and out of cars, meaning those near the top would stay high for quite some time. I watched, heart in the mouth, throughout the 2 full rounds that constituted a ride.

Hello mummy!

Finally the ride finished.  SE said it was scary but fun.  And she wanted to go again.  Hahaha.  Well I let her go once more.  And then decided better not to test luck too many times plus it was past time to go home. Sooo tired from this trip.  (Some more traffic was terrible going home and next day was a school day.  Gahh)

Genting trip 2019

The kids were off from school couple weeks back since classrooms were needed for the UPSR exams.  Well, extra holiday then!  Genting this time.  First thing we noticed upon arrival, our favourite makan place Bubbles n Bytes had closed.  Sigh. 

Gone are the days hubby was a big gambler and got free stays at suites.  Our first time staying at First World (luckily for free).  Oh no photos... the girls were at first comparing the size of the room, there being no bathtub, having a view into other rooms of the hotel.  Later they settled down to iPads while snacking and the room got too messy to take photos heh.  Guess it wasn't too bad really. 

Hmm are you looking at us??

Mummy says if we stay in a different room every night, we can stay 20 years!

I had been looking forward to the food.  Eat we did.  Motorino for pizza (nice lah but way pricier than Bubbles and Bytes), buffet lunch at Coffee Terrace, dimsum at Wan Hoi and Oversea, Go Noodles (never a queue at the Genting outlet).

Pizza... ok it's quite good also

Gonna whack my piggy bun

It was Mooncake festival so we got to see the mooncake deco.

Sit on this giant mooncake stool

No pushing no pushing!

Theme was quite nicely done.  Then again I always have a soft spot for bunny rabbits. :)  The kids had fun posing with these statues...

This bunny is the cutest

This bunny is sleeping
