So fast the long weekend's coming to an end. So what have we been doing? A lot of eating and shopping, what else. hahaha
PaPa was working on Wednesday. There was a deadline to meet. So he got Friday off, giving us a very long weekend. But we don't have any plans to travel outstation. So we just hung around KL, where traffic is rather smooth and shopping complexes aren't that crowded (well, not really, but at least we don't have to be stuck getting into the car parks).
After lunch, we went to a nearby shopping complex to buy some facial products for myself. Then brought the kids for an ice-cream treat at Baskin Robbins. When XY was a toddler, she's not allowed to take any cold stuff as she has sensitive lungs. It'll trigger her cough. So she hardly takes any cold drinks or ice-cream. Anything that we take out from the fridge, we'll leave it to reach room temperature before she eats them.
So it was a really big treat when she ate one whole ice-cream cone on her own. We bought 2 cones and a waffle berry sundae. Didi also ate some but he wanted to hold the cone himself. And when he didn't get it his way, he climbed down the chair and sat on the floor. :-| After awhile, I managed to get him to sit on the chair again and he ate his ice-cream and banana.
Went to Spring Valley Chinese Restaurant at MidValley Megamall for dim sum brunch. The mission for the day was to get sandals for the kids. Didi has outgrown his sandals and jie jie's one has spoilt (the velcro on the straps have torn). Didi wasn't very cooperative. Everything that I wanted to try for him, he refused. I wondered if he doesn't like them or he's just being difficult. His current pairs are Adidas sandals and Crocs (Disney cayman). I'm a bit hesitant to buy another pair of Crocs due to the risk of accidents at escalators and lifts. But they are very lasting. He's worn his for 1.5 years and they still look quite new.
We went to Dragon-i for teatime. So nice to be able to eat in peace. CE was napping and XY has a bowl of la mian to eat to her heart's content. After some drinks, steamed meat dumplings, red bean pancake and mango dessert, we're back to our shopping spree.
At the Adidas shop, XY found something she likes (obviously pink in colour). CE woke up when I tried on the sandals for him. He still didn't want to try anything on, even though they were the same pattern as the one he was wearing. Maybe coz they were of a different colour? Anyway, I didn't get the pair for XY as it was a normal price item. Moreover, it was slightly big for her (if they're 1 size smaller, they fit perfectly, which she won't be able to wear for long). So we walked around to look some more. In the end, we didn't buy any sandals. But we were happily swiping our cards for other stuff - perfume (Estée Lauder's Pure White Linen-Light Breeze), Hush Puppies casual shoes, Nike and Adidas pants and CARs membership.
As for dinner, we ate at one of our favourite restaurants, Amarin Heavenly Thai. We had the appetizer platter, steamed siakap fish, green curry beef, mixed vegetables and fried rice served in pineapple. Another satisfying meal. Mission not accomplished but we're so much poorer. And the happiest are the stomachs. :-)
