Visit to Taiping Zoo

29-Apr-2006 Sunday - 7:45am Papa woke mommy up to had breakfast and get ready to Taiping zoo. Papa is looking for the Taiping Map from the web site, the most rediculous thing is the taiping zoo did not link to the Map at all. I want to make a comment here : - I wonder how foreigner look at "cuti cuti Malaysia" year since there're no proper Map or webpage to tell people on the directions.
at 9:30am we finally out from home, this is first time we bring Vernon travel by car in Malaysia. I am wearing a red t-shirt and Bebe vernon is also wearing Red color Jumper. a matching mother & baby Vernon is so excited in the car although it is time for his morning Nap.
Papa dare not speed on the highway as his little boy is in the car, so lots of car over took him. We took about 1 hour to reach taiping. when we get there, we saw the taiping zoo signboard which was already faded and still nothing was done by the city council. This is why I am saying this year should call : cuti cuti to "holland".
Luckily I asked my sister for direction the night b4 and we did not take very long to reach the zoo front gate. Papa bought the ticket and we headed to the entrance to ask for the Zoo Map. The person handed over the map and we went up to the tram. The gate to the tram is so narrow until our stroller almost cannot get through.........they should design a wider gateway.
We have to occupy 2 rows of the tram due to our bulky stroller. The weather is so nice, not hot at all.......this is a perfect day to visit the zoo.
Vernon is so happy, keep clapping hand while seeing the animals along the side. He even gave friend kisses to those animals...............................
When we reach the last stop, we went down from the tram to take some picture. Who knew, it suddenly started to rain, so we quickly went to the nearest shelter. There were so many there whom cannot go home due to the heavy rain. One thing I wanted to comment : I found that our locals visitors did not care about their chirldren and allowed them to dump rubbish (food wrapers, ice cream sticks, etc...on the floor). The adults even showed bad example by simply damaging the plants by plucking big leafs to use as umbrella, and some ask their children to move benches from one spot to another area :( .
As the rain still did not stop, so we have no choice but to feed vernon there. We then use the stroller rain cover to cover Vernon and walk out to the exit gate. Everyone were looking at us when we use the stroller rain cover which is a very unusual thing in Malaysia.
After calling my sister to ask where is the best place to eat out, we went to Jalan kota to have lunch. I ordered a bowl of Pan yummy. Vernon love it so much, he was asking one spoon full after another. Then we ordered Rojak as appetizer. The food in Taiping is not so bad.
After lunch, we drove around the town before heading back to Penang.

Shopping at Gurney

27-Apr-2007 Friday - After dinner at the Gurney hawker centre, we shopped at the Parkson Gurney. While mommy were buying cosmetic at sheseido counter, little Vernon saw his favorite ELMO display near the infomation counter. The hottest toy in 2006 X'mas "ELMO" DMX is here. He hold on to it & do not want to put it back and even scream & cry when we ask to put the toy back. Papa say he still not able to handle this kind of toy. So we decided to go to Toy R' Us at 3rd floor to find other toy for vernon. finally we found an educated toy which will help vernon in learning.
"Imaginarium" - it come with 5 way Giant Bead Maze (wood xylophone, tracking maze, magnetic white board with 4 wood magnets, abacus & bead maze). He love it so much especialy the xylophone with the 2 wooden stick.
Now, Vernon's Papa is a bit worry as his little boy might misuse the wooden sticks to hit the TV or other fragile stuffs at home. :)

Mini Animal

27-Apr-2007 friday - Mommy went to Batu lanchang market after work. I saw a set of mini animals toy whihc is good for vernon to learn & recognize animals more easily. Now he knew which is Tiger, elephant & monkey and even make the sound of that animals. MIL is the one that teach him during daytime. I am still looking for others animals so that he can knew more animal by the time he turn 2yrs old.

Happy Easter day

Sunday 8-Apr-07 - I & James were undecided where should we go for this easter early this week. So I called up a couple hotels to check out the price & menu for the easter buffer. After a couple calls, I finally decided to go to "Golden Sands Resort" Buffer lunch on sunday.
On sunday, as usual Vernon woke up about 9am and had his breakfast. then follow by his morning nap.
about 11:30am, while this little boy still having his sweet dream. due to we already make appointment with Nai Nai, Kuku, E Po & ChorChor to go for the buffer. No choice we have to woke up this poor little boy so that we won't be too late to meet them.
when we reached there, the coffee garden were decorated with balloon & u can felt the easter atmosphere.
they also serve the easter Egg with more verity of foods then usual day`. we gave 2 Easter Eggs to Vernon and he kept saying it is "ball"...."ball" He thought all the round thing is call """BALL".
after a while, EASTER BUNNY came to the floor. so many kids were follow the bunny go around the place. Vernon look at the Bunny and continue to play with his balloon "dogging shape" again. No excited at all........maybe he already see too many mascot during his visit to Disney World in Florida.

towards the end of the buffer, the waiter brought the balloon and gave to Vernon. I tried to tie the balloon to his hand, he is so angry. and make his sound that " mommy remove it from me" I want to hold on it lah.

First visit to Youth Park Penang

This is first time we brought Vernon to Youth park. he is so excited when we reach the park. As usual, the park is crowded with people going for evening walk, exercise, family outing...etc
the park has been renovated and it looks so much clearner and nicer then last time. At least u can see the penang council finally doing some improvement on those public places. especially the children playground, adding more things for kids to play around.
i wish one day, they can even setup a baby care center with full facilities like U.S : baby changing place, baby feeding & mother's room in this kind of public places.

My Halloween Costume

Vernon in his halloween costume, we saw it in the party store. so we thought this is good to have one for vernon since he is spending his halloween 31-Oct-2006 in U.S. However, we miss the "trick & treat" in the Albuequerque mall that they had as we're on our way to Las Vegas.

Portrait Taken in Alburquerque (New Mexico-U.S)

Papa help mommy to recapture the photos that taken during you were in Alburquerque. Mommy saw the voucher to have discount on portrait taken in JC Penny & War-Mart. James & I went to both places to have a look & enquiry. Their system is totally different, they have charges for "sitting fees" which means they charge for how many people in the photo.
and there'll be different charges for tourch up & paper use to print.
the first photo is taken in JC Penny studio, where we chose X'mas as background since X'mas is coming soon, and we sure we won't be able to get this kind of backgroud in penang.
2nd & 3rd photos were from Wal-Mart.
