Dibah masuk paper

I was reading today's Star in the office clubhouse (Actually, waiting for my turn on the PS2.) and to my surprise, I saw Adibah Hana's picture in the Metro section (Northern edition). Adibah, my wife and I went to the Malaysian Babywearers’ event at the Little Penang Street Market last Sunday. Adibah was actually crying for me when the photo was taken. Her mum was frantically trying to calm her down.

Mandi-manda di Taman Rimba

Since it's a public holiday, we (Mak, Amir, Adibah, Mama, Anis, Uncle Haris & me) went to Taman Rimba in Teluk Bahang. Best !!! Water is clear. There are shallow area for the kids and deep area for the parent to lepas gian. However, Amir is more interested playing with the running water than going for a swim. Siap baring-baring atas batu lagi budak tu. Dibah pun tak nak masuk air but kitaorg forced her a couple of time. Apa lagi, nangis lah anak abah sorang tu.

How Penang got it's name. Well... Duh !!!!

We went to the Malaysian Babywearers' event at Little Penang Street Market. It's next to the Garage and opposite of the E&O hotel. As, I was ronda-ronda in the market, I notice this. Obviously, any Malaysian would have been able to guess it, but finally seeing it being inscribed somewhere caught my attention to take the photo.

Hmmm, shouldn't the word "island" at the end of the sentence be omitted ?

Cayalah!!! Dah Ada Banner .....

I'm planning to take a picture, of my transformers collection with Penang Bridge as the background, to be use as my banner. However, until then this makeshift banner, photoshoped from misc. pictures, will have to do. Knowing me, I don't think it will be replace so soon.

Honestly, it does look as if Optimus and Rodimus are sesat in the middle of Komtar.

Car Wash

This morning, just as Amir is getting out of the car, to his SmartReader class.

Amir : Abah ..., Esok Amir wash car Abah.
Abah : Wash car abah. Why ?

I'm expecting him to say he want to "cari duit" coz I told him if he wants more Ben10 figures, he has to do some work to get the money. However, he suprises me.

Amir : Car Abah dirty.
Abah : hmm...OK.
Amir : First, Amir pi school dulu.

HENSHIN : Dune Runner

Dune Runner, a member of Mini-Con Adventure Team from Transformers Armada, transforms into a dune buggy, with an awesome machine gun. The cool dune buggy mode is the reason I bought the Mini-Con Adventure Team's set.

From Transformer's Wiki :
Dune Runner is the Adventure Mini-Con Team's technical expert, with a knack for gauging field conditions and other mission variables. He's usually a bright and cheery Mini-Con who lets everyone around him know it, looking to brighten the mood of those around him. But his emotional lows run as extreme as his highs; should something upset him, he is subject to depression and relentless complaining. A particular trigger for this is forcing him to leave warmer climates for damper or colder ones. As such, Iceberg's penchant for trying to steer the Team to cold-weather missions ends up doubly annoying

Special Note :
"Henshin" will be a segment where I will feature a Transformer changing to OR from its' alternate mode. As this is the first video in the "Henshin" segment, its' quality is not that great due to poor pictures (poor lighting, shifting angles, lacks creativity and of course the usual interruption by Amir. He woke up before I could finish taking all the pictures.) I'm not sure how often I will post for the segment as I have to take about 20 photos to create the 20 second video. Very time consuming lah ...
Japanese   : Henshin
English : Transform
B.Malaysia : Bertukar

Spotlight - Transformers Armada's Mini-Con Adventure Team

From Transformer's Wiki :
The Mini-Con Adventure Team, from Transformers Armada.
- Dune Runner the buggy.
- Iceberg the snow-tracker.
- Ransack the pickup truck.

Between the three of them, the team can handle any terrain. They dig in deep and plow their way across frozen wilderness, parched deserts or deep swamps to get the job done!

Dune Runner broke down and needed to be pull by Ransack while Iceberg is coming to give a push. Amir gave me this idea and insisted me to take the photo.

Mamat Interframe dah mai datang mengacau. Awat lah hang tidoq sat sangat.

Rendang Ayam Nani

Nani masak Nasi Tomato dan Rendang Ayam untuk Raya. Amir really likes rendang Nani sampai kuah dia pun licin. Everyone was surprise, including the chef, since this is the first time Amir's having rendang. Semua takut dia tak habis makan pasal rendang tu spicy sikit. Abah pun setuju ngan Amir, rendang Nani memang sedap !!!

5 years and counting ......

It has been 5 years and counting, but we still can't get a good picture of the family together during Hari Raya. It's no wonder that Mak keeps insisting me to take us all to the photo studio.

Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri

Kami sekeluarga mengucapkan Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri kepada semua yang mengenali kami. Harap ampun dan maaf segala salah dan silap kami sempena Aidilfitri ini. Maaf Zahir dan Batin.
