I was down with flu and cough the first 3 days. On the third day, the gastric came and had to visit the doctor. You see, gastric attack is like an annual event to me, who has been getting it since 1990.
Waz1f and me at the clinic.
The doctor asked whether I was pregnant. Hahaha... She also asked whether I've taken any medicines that I was allergic to, I couldn't think of any. Then, after a few days, I looked at my cough syrup bottle and saw that it has side effects on the stomach. Yikes! No wonder.
Despite the flu, cough and gastric, we went back to my hometown. Got my mom to massage out all the 'angin' that has accumulated inside my body due to gastric. Learned that Daf1 Af5 is actually the son of our ADUN. Hahaha, that's why he looks so familiar!
These are my only two nieces in the family, the Glamor Girls. The rest are 5 nephews and my 2 sons. I know, I know... my mom is silently wishing that my sister in law is now carrying a baby girl.
Came back to KL the next day. My gastric got a bit better. So we went for a wheel-ride.
We've been planning for the ride ever since January this year. We even came to Titiwangsa at night, right before closing; but there were so many people and we couldn't even get a parking spot.
They're busy looking for fish in Tasik Titiwangsa. My son swore he saw a big fish from inside the wheel's gondola. I bet he imagined it. Mr. Hubby was being supportive and joined the fish observation. Not five minutes later, they lost interest and started screaming, 'Ice cream! Ice cream! I want ice cream!'
So, we went to have ice cream and kuih pau at the stalls near the entrance. I was surprised that the food price here was considered cheap unlike some other local entertainment/recreational places. There's also a mamak stall near the ice cream stall for visitors who just couldn't live without their teh tarik for more than 3 hours. Hehe. Actually, right in front of the wheel there's another cafe that sells frappucino, fruit juice and snacks but I don't think it's the right concept for Malaysians, as they didn't erect any kind of shade or at least small umbrellas!
Bird's eye view of the tiled slabs in Taman Tasik Titiwangsa (viewed from top of the wheel). Went to Sg Buloh the next day and bought 5 more stepping stones. Heheheh! They looked good in my laman. Now I can't wait to go to Sg. Buloh again. Ka ching! Ka ching! Lanscape investment... what can I say.
Even after 5 months, Malaysians masih bersesak-sesak dan berebut-rebut nak naik wheel ni. Go have a ride while it's still here!
Another view from inside the gondola. I wished it was a roller coaster. I asked my second son, how was the ride and he said, 'Tak best, dia pusing tak laju pun.' So, that made the two of us!
Hey, don't let that statement deter your excitement to go for the wheel-ride. My kids might not enjoyed it, but your children maybe are different. My two sons are way too adventurous that sometimes I think I should just let them stay with my mom in Bera and have a ball of their life; climbing coconut trees, 'terjun tiruk' in Sungai Pahang, or go 'menjermal ikan' with my cousins. I don't think, they'd ever want to come back to KL after that. Hehe.

Here's how the garden looks now!
Now that the Guru Pokok has requested I post my garden pictures here, I went home after fetching the kids and snapped two shots. These are not the best angles, but I couldn't bring out the ladder, I had to be content with these two.
Notice the 5 newly bought slabs from Sg. Buloh. On the right hand side of the picture on your right, is my rose corner. They've been blooming ever since two weeks ago and now still going, non-stop. Now I wonder whether I chose the right fertilizer. Well, nothing serious actually, I'm just afraid they'll turn into some kind of mutants. Erk... scary!
The rest of the laman is still undergoing massive nip/tuck and I found it rather not presentable to public at the moment. Be patient my dearests, I will feature more shots here in a few months' time.
