Pharmasewist Parade

Some time back, missus embarked on many projects - sewing her own work clothes. These consists mainly of blouses and a skirt.

So here they are ... on parade as she wore them to work over various days.
 And needless to say, my little one wanted to be part of it as well.
 This is my Mummy. Don't mess with her.
 Whatcha looking at???
I love my Mummy.

 What? I can't pose with my Mummy???
A better view whilst my Little One explores Mummy's legs...

Looks good eh? I bet you're really thought they were purchased off the rack!

Here is the link to the "creation" post

The End.

Of Playgrounds, Jkids and Haenim Slide

A few days after we came back from Geneva, Little One was needing new clothes. So we ended up in Curve and lo-behold! Outside Borders was this toddler playground. Which reminded him and us a little of the time gone by not so long ago... in what seemed like a Galaxy so far away.

Needless to say, he had a ball of time while he was there.



Some time later, we decided to take him to JKids @ Tropicana as Mummy dearest needed some time off to cut her hair. Definitely toddler and child friendly as just about everywhere is padded in case of accidental falls, slides, etc.

"Hi There"!


Balls, balls and more balls!!!

However, he got sick with Flu some few days after. So, we're exactly sure children his age should go in as one can't tell what bugs may lie. But that's the risks one takes...
But still nothing beats his favourite... Swings. So we went a little playground hunting around our neighbourhood.
As you can see, the seat isn't meant for his age.
This has more safety for him, but still... big.

And so, we decided that unfortunately, not all of the time, he'll get to go out and have fun on slides and swing as in Malaysia, it's sooooo dependant on the:
a) weather (rain, thunderstorms or intense heat)
b) haze
c) dirtiness
d) state of equipment
So therefore, we decided to get him his own slide!



Which later evolve to have a cozy corner...

The slide was bought online from Rakuten, a South Korean brand called Haenim. It's DIY aka fix it yourself, but construction is really sturdy even though held up by plastic screws. Materials are hard and looks it can handle for many years what my son will slide or throw down it... :D

The End.

Our Little Garden

So what got our little one so interested in flowers? Simple! Mummy's balcony transformation.
 You see, Missus decided that if and when weather permits, little one should have some fun 'outside'. So, after a careful research and some deliberations, this is what she came up with...

And so, we've got Petunia's, Fittonia's, Coleus's, Palms, Curry Tree...
 With a host of windmills to entertain his eyesight as well.

 And take our attention or anybody's one (for that matter) away from that alleyway sight!
 It had rain the night before...

 Look who decided to make this is permanent home?
 And this is how you nurse a sick Fittonia! :)
 Using some recycleble materials, Mummy dearest decided on some labelling.
 Ladybugs come a-calling?
 "I love you too"
 Taking ideas of other people, we decided to put to good use those cd's... and the beads? They came from Spotlight...
 So, does it work? Greatly! Or rather, too greatly for everytime we leave the curtains and window blinds open to admire the handiwork, it entices my little one to pay it a visit...

Needless to say also, Ikea's furnishings are used here:
a) Socker Plant Stand (Corner); and
b) Ikea PS 2014

The End.

Floria Putrajaya 2015

So here's something that concluded just recently. If you love flowers, and you're in the vicinity of Putrajaya, then this is where one should be. It's an annual thingy and usually happens around May to coincide with the Malaysian Mid Term School Break.

And as my little one has taken a great delight in flowers (or rather his penchant for plucking flowers that we are growing in our little balcony), we decided he should see more of it.

So here we are... Colourful, yes?

And obviously, someone was overjoyed over the masses of ... flowers.
Hmmm... I know someone named, "Vinca!"

Missus used to grow these... making her very jealous here.

"If only I could pluck them...!!!"

Running off some steam...
Another one of his favourites... giant "windmill" .
Oooooooh. Big Balls to roll around, if you can...not!

Gnome party anyone?
Yes, it's called Floria Putrajaya...
Oh la la... what have we here???
Pretty good I'd say and most probably the most picture taken spot as there was a long queue later in the day. As we were there early, it was quick and fast for us.

Opposite them, was missus favourite flowers - Lilies!!!
And I believe, the 2015 flower theme was Lilies as well. So...
Needless to say, 2 people were trilled to bits on this day.


"How cute are they???"

Now, if we were here at night... looking at this would have been very cool.
"I wanna go there..."
There was a mini maze and some benches to sit on. The maze was actually quite short and I guess it's meant for kids. But as you can see, Mummy and little one had other ideas... :)
Like so.
"How many stones can you count, luv?"

More windmills!!!


Floria isn't just about flowers but also on the side, mini exhibitions 'booths'. And these are quite interesting.
Butterheads anyone?
Mushrooms?
And Tomatoes? Floria isn't just about flowers but also how to grow/cultivate your own veggies... and so, the Malaysian Agriculture, Research and Development Institute had join in the fray and gave free advise to folks who would like to cultivate their own stuff... and why not?
This spot could have been more scenic... ah well.




Also joining in the exhibitions were schools and colleges displaying their creativity in using everyday items or recycled materials (as they were) and turning them into interesting garden ornaments.


Even Optimus Prime came a-calling...
Yup, that's where we were.
Thankfully, the weather was good or rather quite cloudy. Otherwise, we would have had a very cranky boy to deal with.

Post Event Musings:
a) Obviously it's best to go early. As early as one can to avoid crowds and have a parking headache later on.
b) This was a 9 day event and best to have gone on it's very first weekend. As we were there on it's very last day, some flowers were showing it's 'age' and of course, can't blame it - especially those in the special exhibition tents
c) There was a marketplace and it mainly sold young / cultivated plants / flowers. But what if you wanted seeds? I think you're out of luck as we didn't see any...
d) There were other exhibition tents but we skip those over long queues, etc...
