The Big Bad Wolf Books Expo

Forced hubby to go to the Big Bad Wolf Books Expo (this is such a tongue-twisters to pronounce) for i already bought Jamie oliver's book from groupon. Read here . The place was in Serdang. As usual we love to go as early in the morning sebab tak suka bersesak-sesak. When we reached there we parked our car and there were lots of shuttle bus waiting to take us to the hall. The parking area and the hall is actually 3-minutes drive.

On the shuttle bus

The hall was quite big and fully air-conditioned. As i stepped my foot there I dont know where to start.
The books there were damn cheap! seriously. As cheap as rm3 and the max price i saw for hardcover is about rm25 only. I went crazy looking at the books. Eventho we hardly found a new edition of books or maybe none but still the selections of books that were put on was not disappointing at all. :)

 my first catch. Ugly for only rm8

 the hall.

 "ibu can i have that book"??

 our catch..mostly mine :P

 L: rm15 R : rm25

hubby's L: rm 25 R: rm 12

happy me!!!

Hurry make yor way to the expo.
The expo ends until next week. click here for more :

Bali it is!! part 2


is a fishing village and tourist resort in Bali, Indonesia. Located south of Ngurah rai, International Airport the beach has seafood restaurants and luxury hotels

Jimbaran is a place where you can have seafood gallore and at the same time savor urself to a perfect sunset. We don't even get to catch the sunset. Pffttt. We arrived there around 8.30 pm. It took us around 30-40 minutes to arrived in Jimbaran sebab jam. All the restaurants are by the seaside. The ambiance was nice while eating u can enjoy the sounds of waves crashing the shore. The food was good. It just that i think it was too pricey..We got charged RM400 for the dinner. Gila mahal wei! it's totally ripped off. memang kena tipu kaw kawlaa kan. So be xtra careful if u want to have dinner in Jimbaran. rules no #4. Be careful when choosing a place to eat in Jimbaran u may get overcharge. Better if u ask 1st. Don't think of coming here again unless for sightseeing or photography purposes.

ada macam makan dekat pengkalan balak tak?? lol

Celuk Village:

on the second day we planned to cover as many places as we can. We left hotel around 8.30 am. So the first place was Celuk Village.

is the famous village in Bali as a tourist destination cause of the local residents is very proactive and full of innovation to the gold and silver crafting. This countryside is located in sub district of Sukawati, Gianyar Regency and owns the individuality and excellence in production of gold and silver crafting. Most of them are Balinese professional, artistic and skillful of design development related to the silver and gold crafting.

Not much of interest tho, the price also high. I think we can get it in KL more cheaper.


is a town on the Indonesian island of Bali in Ubud District, located amongst rice paddies and steep ravines in the central foothills of the Gianyar Regency. One of Bali's major arts and culture centres, it has developed a large tourism industry.

After Celuk Village, we headed to Ubud. If u an art digger you will definitely gonna love this place. I can't get enough of this place. I really love ubud. U need atleast 2 days or more maybe to cover the place. U can find all sorts of arts along the way of Ubud. I tell you i got jakun in the car and going like oh my god! oh my god! My neck got sore for turning left and right. They have one street for house decor stuff, another street for painting and another street for furniture. It's really killing me :(. My aim when in Bali is to get painting. So Pak Wayan brought me to a few shops and art gallery that sells painting. Everytime i step in i feel like am in my own world . I got hypnotized by all the paintings. The problem is in Ubud, the prices are quite expensive for my budget. :(. Quite dissapointing actually. We then when to Pasar Ubud. rules no #5 -In Pasar Ubud u really need to bargain. U can get much lower price than the original price. Do your round and survey first make sure u get a better bargain. :).

 on the 2nd day trip. Emir was 10 months then.

 at one of nasi lauk padang restaurant. so cheap.

at one of many galleries i went

 heehhehe finally got my paintings at uluwatu and it's within my budget. Happy me!!


Pura Uluwatu (temple of the stone head) or Pura Luhur Uluwatu temple is located in the edge of stone cliff in southern part of Bali. This ancient temple is dedicated to the spirits of the sea. Built in the eleventh century during the era of Empu Kuturan, the temple became a classic expression of ancient Bali in a spectacular setting, high above the crashing waves.

 please..pleaselaaa..dont come here over the weekend. serious mcm pasar malam. I'm a bit frustrated.. too many people! nak ambik gambar pun susah. U dont feel like being in Ulu watu..sedangkan this is one of the many places u should come and visit while in Bali.Sakit hati tau!

Emir and his fav milk bottle

As a working mother, milk bottle is a must for me to use as another alternative to feed my baby. I did browse on a few bottles before i bought one. I don't like Avent. Avent is the most common brand i heard and also i received complaints that the bottle's dripping. Ada sekali tu i was in bangsar Village 1, browsing baby's stuff and entered to one baby's shop the SA also said the same thing about Avent's bottle and she said quite a few customers complaint and return back the bottle. So Avent is a big no-no for me.

So i continued searching for the best milk bottles on the net. I found Tomee Tipee. So love the unique design. Looks tubby and so cute. It has all the "thang" u looked for milk bottles..such as BPA FREE, anti colic, teats closer to mom's nipples yada yada..

Tommee Tippee - Closer to Nature PP Bottle 260ml/9oz (BPA Free)

It is not an easy peasy job for me to switch from breast to bottle at first. Yelah 2 bulan dalam pantang. Emir was so used to my breast and i thot once i going back to work just switch jelah tu bottle. I was so reluctant. pikir takkan ada masalah. Man i was so wrong. Emir refused to drink from the bottle when i first started to introduced to him. Masa tu i have another 1 week plus before i started my job. Dahla my milk produce tak banyak, so whenever he cried for more milk i akan buat susu. dia akan tolak. Sangat kesian. Emak mana yang sanggup tengok anak sendiri menangis kelaparan. nak taknak sumbat my breast jelah. Tapi tak tahan sebab bila baby tak kenyang he will cry every hours to drink. I guess closer to nature is not that close for emir :( After a few attempts failed. I reffered to my SIL about my problem since she already have 4 kids. She introduced me to MAM bottles. I quickly went to mothercare to find one. Alhamdullillah 1st time try terus emir suka. I felt relieved upon seeing emir's happily sucking the milk.

Sudah 2-3 kali i introduced this bottle to my neighbours who have the same problem like i had. Baby refused to drink from any bottles. So i introduced MAM to them alhamdullillah baby terus boleh terima. So i guess MAM is the best bottles so far.
They come in with few colours and design.
Can match with ur baby clothes too :P

The most thing i like about this bottle is u can open the bottom part.
makes the cleaning process gets much easier.
