Weekend in Malacca (June 09)

yes yes,  yet another long overdue post.. this is gonna be the trend from now on.. (so I feel less guilty about blogging infrequently)..

Almost an impromptu trip in June, my friend Sat in Singapore & I just thought we both need a good break.

So together with the two babies (Liesl & Fayth) & 2 kids (Avin & Ivan), we mummies packed our bags and headed to Malacca.

Ok that’s a bit drama. Of course there’s the whole booking hotel etc thingy…

So anyways, we left on Sat morning. Liesl travelled down south and Fayth travelled up north for a 2 days play date!

Upon arrival, the adults were starving, so where else but the good ol’ Chicken Rice Ball for lunch. While we ate, the kiddos got acquainted. All four of them.

Checked in to Legacy Hotel after lunch. Lepaked in the room & watch the gals crawl around. Fayth, 3 months older than Liesl was EXTREMELY fast on her fours! Amazingly cute too with her huge concerned eyes that always seems to say “i feel you” =)

And our dear Liesl had to officiate the room by spitting up after a crawl race. =)


After we all took a nap, the gals went for a swim. Liesl seems to be so fearless in the water. Wading on her own from one corner to another. So a month later, Avin and I bought her a float… but yet to use it.

After the swim and some nonya food for dinner, we all had a goood rest.

And here’s the next morning after the girls got acquainted and saying goodbye at breakfast table. (where Liesl broke a plate and spilled precious omellete!

Bye bye Fayth, bye bye Malacca!

it was a good day out of klang!

Overall, Morib’s nice to go for a picnic, given it’s not too hot! Windy and pretty much clean for Malaysian standard. Don’t expect much of the sea water tho.. Just enjoy the wind and the sound of the waves!

Liesl’s Day out…!

Am afraid to think of what she would try when the teeth arrives!

I’ve NEVER seen anything like this before!

WARNING: Not for the faint-hearted.

The past two days have been significant. The litlle baby started crawling, holding her own bottle, new screaming style, & poohing in her potty!!

I thought today would be MY significant day to bring her to the potty to pooh!

Of all days, I started her on banana puree for lunch!  To my surprise, baby Liesl took almost 1 whole pureed banana, mixed with breastmilk! (Quite yummy, btw)

2pm passed. So did her usual ‘pangsai’ time. Poohpooh time, that is.. But today, no pooh, just lots of poooots!!

With each poot, I placed her at her potty..



” Is it here yettt?”


“False alarm!!Back to play!”


Thennnnn it happened! 6pm.

I heard a poot… shrugged it off as another false alarm. But a mummy’s nose never lies!! So I rushed her to the potty, hoping she would pooh in her potty..

but nooooooooo… my little girl is more of a rascal than I thought (or was!)

She poohed in (and out of)  her nappy & not in her potty!& oh gosh.. it was nassssttyyy!

The little ‘extrason the siding!


The real thing!


The close up..

I’ve never seen anything like this before! Super duper gross!

Her pooh had black stuff all over! At a glance, it looked like worms!

For a while there, I thought that’s probably a result of deworming, literally!


I had to sit her in her tub to get it allllll out and her cleaned!IMG_1823

Just as I thought it was all over, it happened again! 8pm – Round 2 of banana pooh!! Not as pasty.. Looked more like blended spinach! But the black wormy stuff was still all over!

Yes, I stared at it for a good 10 seconds just to make sure it ain’t wiggling!


Phew… what a saturday!

So howww do you get  this soiled nappy cleaned  without getting your hands dirty?!

Here’s some tips:

1) Wear gloves/plastic bags!

2) Leave it on the floor & spray…& pick it up by the clean corner..

3) Throw the entire nappy away!

4) Leave it to your maid!

5) Or those privileged like me, holler for your mother in law! =))

What did I do?

No, not #5! Well, living up to my kampung-ness, where little girls catches fish in the drain & eats chicken pooh (i wont name names…!), I dutifully washed it with my barehands!

I ended up using loadds of hand soap before I serve my darling husband a nice cup of tea!

An interesting Saturday, indeed!

For Ah Kong & Ah ma!

Just a post of photos..esp for my dear parents in Sitiawan.

It’s a pity that my last visit back is in April. And it seems like my next available weekend is only in July. After that, it’s weekends for MBA all over again!

So here’s for you mummy & daddy! Enjoy your little girl &  grandgirl! (& the man in their lives)


With her new crabbie squeaky toy!


totally loving it!


Bleh, My eyes are bigger than yours!


*told you so!*  Taken at the famous penang stalls!
