Kisah cuti-cuti Malaysia

Assalamualaikum w.b.t,

Lamanyer tak bersiaran sejak berangkat balik kat Malaysia.

Seronok balik kat Malaysia sampai tak sempat nak tulis-tulis kat blog ini..

Oh! lagipun bukan jer alasannyer malas tapi disebabkan oleh internet connetion yang sangat limited. Sebaik tiba kat Malaysia hubby beli Celcom broadband dengan harga yang murah. Kalau tak silap rege dia tak sampai pun RM50. Malam tu sebaik hubby beli Celcom broadband hati dah berbunga-bunga nak update itu and ini. Tak Ya ampun..lain pulak jadi yer. Bayangkan nak login facebook it took about an hour …lama tu nak tunggu…so bila dah macam tu nafsu nak buat itu and ini melalui internet semua terbantut.

Seminggu juga nak hubby survey internet line yang lain…pilih mana yang terbaik.Enough said, kalau nak guna internet broadband yang coverage meluas dan murah memang susah nak cari. Tapi itu sahaja pilihan yang ada. Nak apply untuk home line, duduk kat Malaysia sebulan jerk. So, at last, beli juga Digi Broadband internet. Nasib baiklah cepat jugak. Oh ya yang ini kena buat contract dengan Digi. Not bad…cumanyer nak upload gambar sometimes took about hours jugak. Jadik bila back for good nanti, saya nak guna Streamix (betul ker ek)…itu ceta kat Johor. Bila balik Sabah pulak, home line internet tu ada tapinyer dah berbulan2 tak guna sebab bila siang hari jerk..takde orang kat umah…bila nak use kat lappy, tanya adik password, dia pulak lupa sebab dah lama tak guna…tapi still bayar bill…sabor jer…so, finally..duk diam2 jerlah kat umah..hehehehehhehe..tengok TV or jalan2 kat mana-mana.

Ok..ok..enough update pasal internet..now nak ceta pasal aktiviti kat Malaysia dalam sebulan…

Week 1&2: Dua minggu duduk kat JB..dalam 2 mingguni asyik beli makanan jerk kat luar. Sebaik tiba kat JB…terus beli buah-buahan tempatan..beli langsat and jambu air…wah sedapnyer..yang lagi best tu dapat merasai cuaca panas kat Malaysia..lagi best…dah berbulan2 kena cuaca sejuk jer kan…balik Msia rasa panas..seronok sangat :)…oh ya..sempat beli durian…cumanyer durian tu taklah umppp sangat…tapi takpelah yang penting dah merasa….lagipun masa sampai Msia tu dah tak musim durian…apa yang nampak beli jerlah..itupun bersyukur dapat makan kan…and then jalan2 kat mana tempat yang best kat JB.

sempat mengunjungi rumah Marlina, sama-sama belajar kat Melbourne..dia pun balik raya

World..world..sangatlah world

salam semua,

saya baru je balik dari melawat ‘world-world’ yang ada kat GC (Gold Coast). Rasa penat sangat jalan2 kat sana but sangat seronok sebab dapat ‘lari’ sekejap dari kesibukkan keje. Anyways, last Friday tu saya and family terbang ke GC selama 4 days. flight dari Melb ke GC adalah dalam lebih kurang 2 jam menaiki JetStar. Actually keje menimbun, in fact, next week will be my midcandidature presentation. Tapi takpe..demi insan tersayang yang sanggup datang menemani belajarni..of courselah kena spend some times for them. Otherwise, mesti orang tersayang rasa bosan :D…So setiba kat GC dah petang. Naik public transport ke GC. I must say that public transport in GC was absolutely excellent service..10 marks for them. Nak dijadikan ceta, tak tahu sebenarnyer nak turun kat mana waktu menuju ke tempat penginapan. Naik bus terpinga2…bus driver pun cuak tengok kita orang. Sebabnyer dah sampai Surfers Paradise but still not sure nak turun kat mana. The bus driver was very helpful although the face was bit scary..macam nak makan orang. I think orang arab kut..tapi tak mengapalah kan..sebab dia sangat membantu..tak sangka tempat yang kami teragak-agak nak turun tu itulah tempatnyer. Nasib baik ada GPS..so kita orangpun  follow jerlah…

sampai terus penat hilang. Then malamtu, keluar sat beli barang masak. I’ve decided nak masak sebab tak tahu nak dapat makanan halal kat mana. Lagipun hubby is very particular bila bab-bab makanan. So tak mengapalah. Endup spent AUD60 which covers breakfast, lunch, dinner and supper for 4 days. Eh percaya tak? Siap beli food pack lagi so senang nak bawa makanan kan. Lagipun makanan kat dalam ‘world-world’ tu sangat expensive. A bottle of mineral water is AUD3..mak aiii..MAHAL…duit tak banyak bawa.. so apa lagi berjimat lah 😀

Disebabkan takleh nak cover Broadbeach and Surfers Paradise on day time..so kami menjelajah tempat tu on nite..wah sangat happening yer bila malam..takdelah best sangat pun..cumanyer biasalah bila dah malam, tempat pulak fofular..apa lagi ramailah drunken…terus kita orang jalan kelam-kabut balik ke apartment. Kesimpulannyer, jangan keluar malam kat Overseasni sebab banyak orang mabuk.

Keesokkan harinyer pergi ke Movie world. Kat sini, apa yang best adalah kita dapat tengok kartun2 yang main kat TV. Dapatlah jumpa Shrek, Scooby Doo, Batman etc. Tempatni best untuk kanak2 sebenarnyer. Kids can play so many things and enjoy themselves with live performance by some cartoon characters.  Tapi malangnyer, Nuha tak enjoy pun..jumpa Shrek nangis, jumpa Scooby Doo nangis, jumpa Batman pun nangis..aduhai lah sayang!..tapi hubby pun tak leh lepaskan peluang dok naik roller coaster yang kena ‘tolak’ oleh Superman. Scary oooooooooo. Nasib baik tak naik..mungkin nangis kut lepastu 😀

On the second day, kami pergi Dream world. Alright, I must that of all worlds yang ada kat GC, Dreamworld is the most happeninglah…rasa satu hari tak cukup nak cover semua. All ages can have fun in it. Macam2 ada. 😀 Biasalah saya dok teman Nuha mainan dia yang parents pun boleh naik. Apa yang tak boleh lupa, sorang penjaga tu siap tanya my age..sebab dia takut I am still underage nak main dengan Nuha naik benda yang entah pusing-pusing. hahahahahahhaha..sengeh ek..kata ngan Hubby, eh look he thought that I am underage…hubby dok buat muka seposen. So ok…kat Dreamworld memang best sangat!

Last but not least, Sea World. SubhanaAllah sangat seronok berada kat sini. Sebabnyer dapat tengok Sea lion and dolphin live..Jakun ek..iyalah bila lagi kita boleh tengok kan..and also Pola Bear. Tapi kesian kat animalsni sebab tak boleh berada at their own habitats ..terperangkap gitu..Manusia..apa saja yang boleh buat duit, mereka makanye tak kisah. Hajat dihati nak lihat whale…tapi tak cukup duit nak naik boat..takpelah, next time ada rezeki bolehlah naik kan! 😀

So overall, it was so fun and enjoy although bila dah sampai rumah macam nak tercabut semua badan…Nuha pun suka tau..nengok dia sengih tu..apapun suka, suka jugak, next week ada midcandidature presentation..tup-tap..tup-tap..wish me luck!

Train and Horses

Salam,

I am in the midst of marking students’ assignments. There are a bundle of papers for me to get through and read. The fact is that all that papers were submitted online which for me some sorts of relief and easiness. Of course, I dont have to flip from one page to other page somehow only to scrolling down the mouse. It’s also helping me in time management that is I can simply mark the paper online, save them in the computer and at anytime I can review it again without I have to put them in files, sort them according to their names etc. That’s the beneficial of technology to us.

Actually, I had spent my two days uni break at Ballarat and riding old train. Those were such beautiful moment, of course when you have time with your family away from distractions. We managed to go to Puffing Billy Train at Belgrave although we thought that we won’t be able to catch the train. This is because on the day we supposed to depart early, our landlord has came over to our house. Nevertheless, the meeting with landlord concluded with a bright smile 😀 . Alright, we rode on the train at the last train which was at 2.30pm. The weather on that day was not too bad nor not too sunny, it’s breezy and cold. The ride starts at Belgrave and ends at Lakeslide. It’s so adventurous riding as you can see the stock eating, the friendly local, the beautiful houses along your ways. Nuha was so exciting although at the first ride to Lakeslide she looked more bored might be because she was already tired. Coincidently, we met our old-time neighbour who moved to the city, Kak Siti & Co.

Our next trip was to Sovereign Hill, Ballarat which was on the next day. The journey took us almost 2 hours drive from city. It was sunny and cooler day. Sovereign Hill is all about the old-time village which showing all the building that built in 1800s. You can see how the shops operating in old time, the horses as the main transport for residents, the engines that built on that time that still can be operating up today, the people who wearing lovely and unique dresses and many more things. The main attraction is of course the gold panning. At this point/place, you can experience yourself to dig for the golds. I have tried it too.

Last but not least, The Kystal castle. It was actually located just closed by Sovereign Hill. We dont have the opportunity to enter this place as hubby was very tired. He also reluctant to capture pictures at this place. Overall, the holiday break with family was the tremendous breakaway with joy and happiness 😀

Sand Sculpting & Aschcombe

Salam everyone,

Rasa dah lama tak update blog.hehehehehehe sehari pun terasa lamakan!..Sebenarnyer MALAS dan takde idea nak tulis apa. Tadi lepas solat  subuh, dah takleh tido. Mata duk bukak besar jer 😀 tu yang terasa macam nak update blog. Tapi tak tahu nak tulis apa. Fikir punya fikir I thought I wanted to share something on the eve of new year hari tu.

Eve new year hari tu, berkesempatan overnight kat Frankston rumah akak Shah. She had invited us to come at her new house for so many times. So, I thought that would be good if I could take a change to spend a night at her home. Yet, it was at the eve of new year so why not?

Actually, it was my second time visited Frankston. The first one was on Bayu’s birthday. That time was invited by our friend who studying at Monash Peninsular. Because of my mother in law was here at that moment, that’s the good idea to be there. Bila dah kat situ, Kak Shah brought us to Sand Sculpting & Ashcombe. My goodness, tell you that day was badly hot. Too hot! I could barely open my eyes. Macammanalah rasanyer panas kat akhirat ek? Tapi teruskan juga niat tu.

According to kak Shah last year’s sand sculpting was much better and the monuments were much attractive than this year. Fun for the kids lah. But this pun I think not bad jugak sebab monuments kali ini berinspirasikan benda2 sejarah kat around the world. Yang bestnyer tu KLCC pun masuk dalam senarai one of the best structure/building kat dunia. Yeah! 😀 Malaysia Boleh.

Bayaran nak masuk kat sinipun agak mahal. kalau tak silap AUD16 for adult. Kata ngan hubby dah sampai tu masuk jerlah. Iyalah sebab mahal sangatkan…hehehehehe..but it’s worthy for us to look and discover something new. Ok, lepastu pulak kami jalan2 kat pantai Frankston. Tengok2 mat salleh dan minah salleh berjemur kat tepian pantai. Hehehehehe 😀 dalam hati napalah merekani sanggup berjemur bawah matahari. Saya rasa mungkin disebabkan tradisi kut so summer jer mesti berjemur.

Alright, lepastu kami bertolak ke Ashcombe kat Shoreham. It just a drive of an hour. Not so badlah tempatni. Actuallynyer kami dah silap. Sepatutnyer datang on Spring best skit. Sebab time tu bunga tengah kembang. Timeni semua bunga dah layu :D. Lagipun kawasanni adalah taman bunga, so that would be the best time to go. Yang bestnyer kat sini ada taman berpetak2 tu. Kalau siapa nak masuk boleh. It’s a bit puzzled. Kalau jumpa jalan keluar oklah, kalau tak berkurunlah kat situ. hehehehehehe. Kita orang setengah jalan jer lepas tu keluar semula. Lagipun masing2 bawa baby. So tak jadi nak masuk. Kalau tak silap ada 4 Aschcombe tu. Setiap satu ada corak masing-masing.

Alright, selamat berhujung minggu. Jaga diri ek.
