Yesterday. Very hectic day! This time around Hubby is home for the weekend and we had to cover so many things in a day! Gosh - I miss those laid back weekends where Hubby, Aiden and I would wake up late, go window shopping, have a relaxing lunch and lie around doing nothing at home. Nowadays, it is all about the new house and catching up on things Hubby missed out while he's in Singapore.

So yesterday, we started off the day bright and early in Cahaya SPK. This time not for our house per say, but more for the community. At 10am we had a face to face meeting between the Resident Association and the Cahaya SPK management. Since Hubby is almost always in Singapore, I had taken over his job as Precinct 3's RA nomminee, hence the mandatory show up. We discussed about anything and everything. From the guards watering our plants (as they have no built-in toilets near their guard post) to the road antics of people staying around the Puncak Perdana area. We covered everything!

After the meeting, we rushed to a wedding in Janda Baik (yes... Janda Baik!!!). The groom is hubby's friend who also incidentally has a resort in Janda Baik. The last time I was there (for a BBQ), I was still preggers with Aiden in my tummy!! The food was good, and it was my first meal with nasi since the beginning of the week (diet alert!) so I ate with such gusto that it became quite embarrassing!! (But sorry, no pictures!)

Then off to Macy for a new mattress. I had actually paid a visit to Macy with my sister the day before to survey their latest promotion. Unfortunately, the promotion won't let me purchase a King size mattress with a Queen size bed frame. Which didn't fit my needs! However, I refused to back down. I messaged the official Macy's Facebook site and enquired officially. I mean - its not that it is a loss for Macy right? I'm asking for a Queen bed, instead of King. Macy actually makes a profit! And guess, what? They said Yes!

Imagine my surprise when Hubby and I arrived, and were told that they could not fulfill our request! Thank god I had proof of their reply, and of course they had to honour it. Unfortunately, someone from Marketing is sooo going to get it from the Macy's director! (Sorry, sorry whoever you are....)

So... now the new house has complete beds and mattresses for all its rooms! Yeay!!! And the best part - the bed frame was only RM10 and a free holiday to either Bali or Phuket!!! Also, my Enrich & Krisflyer points are sufficient to redeem return flights for both of us. Yeay, free holiday!

I sooooo need a holiday.

Picture proof that the mattress is a King, and the bed frame is a Queen.

All thanks to this promotion - picture credit to Macy's official website. (I am such a self proclaimed Macy ambassador).

Then, next stop. Tykoh Inagiku. This time, it was on Hubby's request. Yes, this is the 3rd time this month. And I think i'll spare you from pictures of nyummy-licious prawns and fried rice. If you don't know what I am talking about, you sooo haven't khatam my blog.

Aiden: "Daddy look (points) - Mummy is ignoring me. Her prawns are yummier than me!"

Aiden: "Oh, hello Daddy's yummy-licious zoom lense!"

Aiden gets Bubur Ayam McD (his first try!) while Mummy maintain ayu in her Baju Kurung.

We conquered the whole strip of Teppanyaki seats. Over gila!

Okay. I lied. I couldn't help snapping pictures of the prawns with the D40 (previous visits were taken with the iPhone camera only).

Poor Hubby. This time around, our favorite chef was on leave. So another chef took over his place. And this chef was unfamilliar with how our chef cooks our favorite dishes. Not only that, he didn't know the price scheme our favorite chef charges everytime we dine!

To top the disappointment, the huge prawns that they usually serve were out of stock. So they gave us two medium/small sized prawns instead. Poor hubby.

One salmon for Hubby and two prawns for each of us.

This chef didn't make fried rice the way the other one did. *sob*sob*. Fortunately, hubby likes this version better. (I didn't!)

Instead of putting vegetable and prawns in his fried rice, he only gave us eggs and garlic!

Contrary to our favorite chef, this chef served everything in a single dish!

My two miserable (but thank god still the same yummy-licious) medium sized prawns.

And Green Tea ice-cream for dessert.

Imagine my surprise when I got the bill! I had initially explained to the chef that our favorite chef usually charges us ~RM50 for a 2 course main dish or ~RM75 for a 3 course main dish. What I meant was per person! But because he was soooo unfamilliar with us, (maybe) he thought price for two! Sorry Tykoh Inagiku - it wasn't his fault!

Back home, Aiden dressed in his pyjamas, started exploring the house.

And touching the carpet.

Careful Aiden! Slippery!!!

Tummy time with Mummy.

And the day did not end for us just yet. Off we went to Tesco for groceries. Meanwhile, Aiden stayed at home with Bibik. On the way there, I tried looking for ABC flash card applications on iPhone. Unfortunately, I found nothing suitable for a 10 month old baby. But at Tesco, I found an ABC book for babies!

Made in Malaysia.

It started off quite strong.

Then we got to E and thought, hmmm... good to start him early since his parents are both engineers!

Then we got to G & H, and thought, gosh - kids nowadays are exposed to such complicated words!

And we got to Q and started laughing our heads off.

Finally, we arrived at U. Then we decided that we simply had to get the book for our very own entertainment!

Hectic day, eh?
