A few days before her birthday, we surprised the kids with a fun long weekend in Johor Bahru. I invited my best friend and his family to come along as our kids enjoy playing together.
We drove from Shah Alam early Thursday morning to try to be at the gate before the Legoland theme park opened, but only managed to arrive an hour after. Since it rained lightly that morning, the weather for the rest of the day was just nice. The kids had loads of fun going on the rides together.
How was your first day of Ramadhan? Mine was excellent as it marked the day my first-born fasted for the first time. He woke up for sahoor, performed his five times solah for the day, and went to the masjid for Taraweeh.
Yes, he is a big kid now. How time flies.

Daanish is half-way through his Year 1 mid-year examination. So far, he's done with 9 papers and there are 4 more coming within the next 2 days. The examination covers 7 subjects and includes everything they've learned since the beginning of the year.
"How were the tests, Abang?"
"Okay", he answered.
"Do you think you can get 100?"
"Yes!" replied confidently.
I complained in a post about how Ayra refused to cycle even after we entertained her request for a new bicycle.
Last weekend, for Mother's Day we decided to have a staycation at our favorite hotel in KL. It's a good thing my dad works for Starwood because paying for a two-night stay at Le Méridien wouldn't be such an easy decision to make if we're there "just for the fun of it".
