Shopping Sunday

Last Sunday, it was shopping day at Mid Valley Megamall (MV). Mission of the day was to get a scooter for XY. That's her "official" reward for doing well in kindy. Anyway, we just used that as a reason, hoping she'd be motivated about learning and school. But while we're at Toys"R"Us, we bought a few more things for her.

First thing we did when we reached MV (at 12+) was to have lunch. We had a satisfactory meal at Madam Kwan's - Nasi Bojari, beef rendang and sambal petai with prawns. Ordered fish and chips for XY. Didi ate steamed white rice and a bit of fish and chips. He preferred the plain rice than his home-cooked steamed egg.

After lunch, we went to look for the scooter. XY liked the pink ones with 3 wheels but they're rather small for her height. So we got her the metal type with 2 wheels. It's not easy to balance but I guess with more practice, she'll get the hang of it.

Apart from the scooter, we also bought a safety helmet and toy handphone (with sound and light and comes with a cute pouch) for her. In preparation for our coming beach holiday (going to Langkawi Island in the middle of the month, yay!), we bought the sand playset and Max Liquidator (a water pump that shoots up to 30 feet, to be played in the pool).

We went to Jusco next. Didi fell asleep in his stroller (which rarely happens) while we were there. PaPa offered to let me go shopping while he took over the stroller (with didi sleeping inside, of course). So I went back into Jusco with XY and 2 maids (was maid-sitting for BIL last weekend). After 2 hours, I was RM150 poorer. And I've got 3 t-shirts and 3 shorts for myself and a Puma t-shirt for XY. Not too bad, right? :D

Didi has just woken up when we met up with PaPa. Since it was a little early for dinner, we went for a walk at The Gardens. Wanted to see what to have for dinner. But we ended up eating at Dome Cafe in MV. The restaurant was rather empty. I wonder how long they can survive.

Hi Slavemom, its winter here now, but in Summer can see lots of kids fooling around with these scooters.
But I noticed more on skateboards.

Should see the number of kids here with bruises too, ha ha.

Your daughter looks real cute on her scooter.
One day soon she'll be looking at a real scooter, ha ha.
Have a nice day, Lee.
