NY celebration in Spore

**postponed entry**

Inche' SO has mentioned to me that he really wanted the boys to experienced watching the NY fireworks upclose - when we were staying in Mont Kiara, I had the best view ever! I remembered sitting on the balcony with a drink in hand and doing my own special quiet countdown and voila! the fireworks did not dissapoint me - I got to watch the fireworks from Mont Kiara/ Solaris area, from KLCC and one more location that I couldn't really put my finger on .. but the view was majestic... yes, it was loud.. yes, it was smokey..but I am just glad that I get to watch all that in the convenience of my home..

this time round, Inche' SO was sooo determined to bring the boys down to Singapore for them to experience the NY firework Spore style..

we were there [Merlion overlooking the Marina Bay Sands Hotel] and we were there since 2100hrs and my God, there were already tonnes of people there.. We were lucky to have a spot on the stairs with thousand others already there and then, the waiting game begins..he he he he...

mind you, my boys [the father included] are not patient people.. Haddyff even fell asleep while waiting for the countdown.. I saw a Starbucks/ Coffee Bean outlet near the underpass so I had my plan laid out for me - in case of emergency, buy coffee..he he he he.. but na'ah, couldn't get to the outlet as CISCO had already put up barrier to not let any more people in [or people out, for that matter] by 2230hrs.. so we had to drink mineral water instead, much to the dismay of the boys..

but as the countdown begins - I felt some sort of excitement in me and was so excited to see this so-called majestic view and I was totally awed!

All in all we had fun and the boys got to see their fireworks up close and they were indeed , happy bunnies al the way back to KL! [oh yeah, we made our way back to KL immediately after the celebration - Alhamdulilah, no traffic and 'twas a smooth drive back home]

walking down the pier, looking for the toilet..he he he he..

you can see Maybank Tower, the Hotels there and of course, the Singapore Flyer

yup, we were seated right smack behind Merlion's buttock!

the lasers from the top of MBS Hotel

They were having a concert near Singapore Flyer

see throngs of people there and it was not even 2200hrs

Haddyff sleeping , Abah is bored and Irfan is just happy to be there.. Harryth? He was doing some stretching down the staircase..

p/s: next in line , we're planning to either celebrate our NY here in Spore in 3 years time on either a) MBS hotel - rent a room during the NY celebration or b) book the whole capsule at Singapore Flyer or c) charter the night boat during the NY celebration...

Orientasi Darjah 1 si SK SERI HARTAMAS

**postponed entry**

Mr Confident aka Haddyff has officially moved to his new school as a Pri 1 student and with that comes the Orientation Day as to introduce the new school to the new attendees and for the parents to get their textbooks, pay the fees etc..

Inche' SO wasn't around so I had to bring Irfan along  - Harryth ? He was "kidnapped" by Tok Daddy, Tok Mommy and Mak Su for a short getaway in PD..

Alhamdulillah, lesson learnt - Mommy bought all his schoolbooks earlier so that she does not have to queue twice anymore.. average waiting time in line? still 30 mins..

collected his files, fill in all his particulars, paid the fees and collected his textbooks and Mommy got all of it done within 2 hrs **phew**

Haddyff was happily venturing the school with his ever so loyal sidekick Irfan and almost immediately made friends with the other new children.. Irfan? He made the school as his own - he he he he he.. be patience, love - you still have 2 more years in Ilham Montessori before you can go to the same school as your brothers:)

First Day in Ilham Montessori 2014

IM started their sem on Monday and boy was Haddy-Irfan excited to go to school..
We were a bit apprehensive on how he would react on the 1st day - as all of you know now, Irfan will be alone in the kindy this year as Haddyff is already in Pri 1 in SKSH.. He is so used to have Haddyff around that we were a bit scared that he'll be slightly off-ish when he realized that Abang is no longer there to be with him...

Alhamdulillah , with our constant reminders to Irfan about him being a big boy now and that he will be going to IM alone, DAY 1 of IM was such a breeze..

no tantrums, no one scene drama queen antics..he he he he..

he was so happy to send both Harryth and Haddyff to school and reminded me that I need to send him to IM next..

he walked confidently to school, hand-in-hand with Mommy and entered IM compound with a smile.. Mommy had asked him to recite him phonics and count all the way from home - ha ha ha ha ha, we live about  a minute away from IM actually so Mommy managed to squeeze in a few phonics and numbers with Irfan constantly asking "AGAIN Mommy?"

anyway - I am just so happy that IM has proven to be the best for my children so far, alhamdulillah ...

so sweet of the teachers to have this up for the children

Welcome Back!

Muka budak baik!

Yes, the one who holds his card differently from the rest is mine :P

Berkongsi cerita Hari Pertama si SK Seri Hartamas

Abah bercuti lama hujung tahun ni - actually he took a quite a few days off as we, ourselves had made 2 trips down to Spore for the month of Dec 2013..

but this time he was adamant of sending the boys to school as well as establishing a routine for the the big boys who now attends the same school together..

We are the big boys now..

Yup, my Mr Confident sitting in line with the rest of his new classmates..

my other 2 handsome heroes

He's so used to having one of his brothers attending/playing with him so when no one is around, he got sad and lonely hence the sad face
[and mind you this was his face throughout the day when the brothers were in school!]

waiting for Harryth at Table No.3 in the school's canteen

this boy was so bored that he slept on his own in the car..kesian kan?

Pakcik baju belang tu kancheong psl anak2 dah besar - dah masuk sekolah rendah!:P

Haddyff & Mommy

Harryth and Haddyff will have this routine of sitting down and having recess together everyday, hopefully
