Visitors and Friends

Salams everyone,
Sorry for MS's and my infrequent updates on the blog. Unfortunately, we don't have constant internet access anymore and our updates have to be limited to whenever we could get logged on. At the moment, my only other means of access is by using a cybercafe -- the rates are not bad here, I think I'll be visiting this cafe a lot more often from now on.
It's been around a week since we arrived in Malaysia, but to me it feels almost like it's been years since we've left the UK. I'm happy to report that I'm slowly getting over the initial culture- and whatever else- shock and ... I'm actually gradually starting to enjoy it.
For example, the weather is always so nice here - and always quite warm. Thank goodness we made that stop over by Dubai, as to us, the weather here is SO pleasant in comparison. I wouldn't say it's that hot at all.
In terms of food, our little ones that are Sarah and Amar are still trying to adjust themselves. The food here are probably a bit to spicy and tastes subtly different - that they are not eating as much as we would like them to. The milk ABSOLUTELY tastes different - and for the first few days Amar and Sarah had been refusing even milk. It has taken them a while but now they are complaining less and are starting to improve their intake.
I am very happy with the support from family and friends here in Malaysia. It is so nice to have family around and I am looking forward to meeting my own parents this weekend (we are currently with Mama Sarah's parents - who are both absolutely wonderful). As of friends, quite a few of our blog friends have sent sms-es and have arranged to meet - we are meeting a couple of them tomorrow, in fact (heh heh heh). Above is a photo of one such meeting we had over the Merdeka weekend - of Dyanna, Wan and Mama Sarah (left, centre and right, respectively).
Okay, sorry to end this a bit abruptly but I do have a few more things to do while I have internet access. I'll write more once I can. Wassalam.

oh no! I belom update my blog lagi. Then mine will be cerita basi by the time I publish my post.

It was really great meeting you, K nisak, Sarah and Amar. The good food adds more 'kemeriahan' to the meeting. Thanks :)

{Totally love the picture. Shud show this to Naja}

Glad to hear the little ones are adjusting.. We will be in KL this weekend (Sunday-Tuesday) so we will try to meet up with you guys if possible. The problem is the plant is not doing too well over the last few weeks so me and KKL have had interrupted weekends for a month now. Pleasepray that the plant is okay over this weekend as I would hate to cut the visit to KL short for no good reason.

like you said,the milk here is very different than what we as a family are used to. In fact, I don't think Sarah is used to the milk yet- she's refusing all the brands we have tried so far "rasa lain", she would say.

we have indeed met the mysterious Mr Pycno - we were all very pleasantly surprised to meet the famous celebrity. What was more shocking was how nice Mr Pycno & family were. Looking forward to future meet ups!

hope we could meet up tonight (monday I'm writing this). do give me a buzz once you & KKL are free - can't wait!

it was great meeting you guys too. the food was indeed quite nice, even i was surprised. glad you like the picture. After this i'll be jumping over to your blog to see if you've updated anything - it's been so long since i had been connected to the internet!

i cannot at all go against pycno's amanah of not putting any of his pictures on the internets.However, i did manage to take pictures of him & family - what a nice family, i have to say. Maybe we'll be able to meet up with you and ikelah when you're sending Momad to the UK :)
