Our New Pet


Having a pet is like a new adventure. It takes your time and requires patience. It also teaches you to be diciplined and learn new things at the same time.

Our kids adore cats. Whenever they meet this loveable creature they could play on and on with them. But our daughters have Athma so that is the reason we always reject their request to have a cat.

But few months ago, there was this one cat kept coming to our house. It asked us food so we gave it food and water. We even bought a special cat food and also milk! :D

Suddenly, we found her pregnant! So we even made a special shelter for her. Then we were kinda excited and looking forward to meeting her babies hihi.

One day, she delivered four cute tiny kittens! The kids were all over the moon! They hold and caress them. Every morning they wake up, the kittens are first in their mind! :D

Recently, when we returned home from a long weekend break at our parents, we found out that the kittens were missing and it's mother had a cut and blood near it's neck!
we searched for the kittens high and low but to no avail. The kids were sad..

We suspected that some wild animals such as a snake or wild boar from the jungle had eaten the kittens huhu.

Surprisingly on the next day, the mother brought back it's two kittens from only God knows where. Even though only two, we were more than happy! Now the kids get to play again with the playful kittens. :)

Anyway as a mother, i still feel worried thinking if my daughters' Athma get worse since we have cats now.

But so far, Alhamdulillah. And in shaa Allah we will make sure that Iris will not skip her preventer inhaler everyday and night.

Till then wassalam.

A Visit to Zoo Melaka


I took my kids to Zoo Melaka yesterday. It's kinda impromptu, but the idea just suddenly popped up in my head. After all the weather was bright and sunny.

It's a waste if we just stay at home while the weather was beautiful right. So we went there. Hubby could not join us as he worked but he kindly dropped us at the zoo so i don't need to trouble myself finding a parking space. Thank you, my love! Hee

First, we purchased tickets and bought the zoo map at the counter. The price for adult is RM17.90 and RM7.10 for a child including GST. RM1 for 2 maps. If you want to ride on a tram, it will cost you RM5 for each person separately.

And just before we started, i bought some snacks and drinks at the cafe nearby to make sure the kids's tummy happy.

Then we got to see animals such as rhinos, giraffes, elephants, emu, orang utan, ponies, peacocks, tiger, lions, leopards, monkeys, various type of birds, bear and many more! But most of the animals were taking a nap. Huhu.

Nevertheless the kids were still excited and had fun. They talked about the animals animatedly and read their details from the signboard. Their faces were glowing with smile and laughter though it was a hot day..surprisingly they did not complain much. Thumbs up, guys! :x

But too bad, my phone battery was low hence not many pictures were taken..that's the downside of adhoc plan...:(

Anyway, i'm so glad we made it. It took us about two hours to cover the zoo. We did skipped some animals though, it's the reptile house and missed some animals as well :D

All in all, the zoo now have more animals compare years before. So it was quite satisfying. There are tram service, small cafes around, toilets, a prayer room, and even a playground. So convenient!

My kids still talked about the funny Orang Utan who asked a soda drink from one of the visitors. The visitor was eventually relented and threw it to the Orang Utan after it being sulky clever ok minta simpati, haha.

hopefully it would not give it any harm. The visitor did it just out of pity. It's a hot day and the Orang Utan must have been thirsty. Poor little thing!

Lastly, a visit to the zoo is always entertaining and educating. If you come to Melaka, go visit Zoo Melaka. I'm sure you and your kids will enjoy it as we did. Please wear hats, shades, sport shoes and bring your own drink too as it is quite expensive to buy inside.

Till then, wassalam..
