Toobs Comparisons (Wild Republic vs Safari Ltd)

Image
All this while, we have only Toobs from Safari Ltd. Following our visit to KLCC and Little One spotting his favourite animals, needless to say, we now have some similar toobs from Wild Republic's version.
So let's see what's the difference between the two, shall we? The Packaging...
One extra incentive from Wild Republic is this play board. One can put his/her toobs and perform an imaginary play. Might come in usesful later on or not. In our case, Little One just ignored it...
1st up: Leopard Sharks.

I leave it to you to decide on which colour or rendition one would prefer. They both have their pros a…

Celebrating Birthdays, Puchong's Hidden (aka unkept) Park and Aquaria KLCC (again!)

Image
Before you know it, yours truly had reached his 40th Birthday!
Wow... in any case, just a simple birthday cake suffices.  With my Little One as usual the attention grabbing...

 Next to Puteri Mart, it's a small car park which is meant for this hidden park. It's somewhat disused and unkept. Pity as it could have been a wonderful place for people to unwind and relax...
 As usual, the children's playground grabs my attention more...
 While the playground was dirty, what I termed as unkept is the pathways, the 'mini' bridge that spans a small dam had broken planks...
 Not long after yours truly's birthday, came Little One's. And no, it's not 3 but 4 as we ran out of one candle! :P
 Regardsless, Little One couldn't be bothered and just as happy to blow the candles and eat his Shark!
Inspiration for his cake came from here  Just under 2 years ago, we started Little One on his Marine / Sea Creature Montesorri Adventure. As you can see, his love for sea li…

Our CNY Meal along with Little One's enjoyment with Shopping Mall 'recreation'

This is version 2.0 for our Chicken Ham, Salad and Pineapple Wrap... 
But this time, we had a twist: Del Monte Pineapple Sauce! And boy, does this make this wrap of ours so much more ... YUMMY!

For dinner, missus decided to cook cashew nuts+dried chilli chicken. Yummy again!
Not so long ago, we visited Aeon Big @ Subang aka the former Carrefour mall. And they had these rides that you put coins / tokens in to captivate your little ones.
Fortunately for us, Little One doesn't need the fancy smanzy music or movements. He was happy to do play with it just like that himself!



His favourite? The Fire Engine... :)
The End.

Taking the MRT from 1U to Semantan

Image
Doing a little jump here... Recently, yours truly had to pay a visit to Wisma UN. Since Moi stays near Damansara, and I didn't want to pay for the exorbitant parking there, I decided to take the MRT instead.
SO. Yours truly parked @ 1U station (which was deserted. Really.) At 0930H, there were only 5 cars (including moi's) at car park. Kinda eerie that.
BUT, once you get into the lift lobby... wow. Nice. Now, I was a little confused with this. How can the G (Ground) Floor be consider THE floor for the MRT station? It's easily 2 stories high...
Anyway, once coming out of the lift, you turn right, and make your way across to the connecting pedestrian bridge that links the car park to the station.

The biggest difference between using the LRTs and this MRT are the 'doors' on the platform. Obviously for safety, this is fantastic. Doors open...
And doors close.
