Jalan-Jalan

What have you been doing so far during the holidays?

We were in Sunway Lagoon last weekend as MrNordin’s company organized a Family Day for the staff. We were given 2 rooms at the Resort and free passes to enter the Theme Park.

I haven’t been to Sunway Lagoon in a long time. The last time I was there was maybe when it was first opened, sometime in the early 90’s. The place is cool, man! The rides are awesome and the slides are only to be tried by those who do not have any heart condition. I’m serious!

We arrived on Friday evening after sending my maid (the one who’s getting married) to LCCT. It was quite sad to see her go after being with us for 7 years, and as expected, there were lots of tears at the airport.

But if she had to go, we must let her go... I kept on telling myself that we’ll see her again (yes, we will), and so the farewell did not turn out to be too dramatic. For me, at least.

Sunway Lagoon provided a good diversion from the farewell. Soon after that, we were having fun walking along the corridors of Sunway Pyramid and had a late lunch at Tarbush.

I think, if you needed a break with your family, Sunway Lagoon is an ideal place to be. Everything is under one roof. The hotels, shopping mall and theme park are just walking distance from one another and there are just so many things to do. Yes, there are a lot of people especially now it’s the school holidays, but it’s worth the ride. Your kids would love it!

We came home on Saturday evening, all tired and bruised. Nizzar had a slight temperature and was having runny nose sebab lama sangat main dalam swimming pool. We knew he was going to be down after the swim, but tak apalah… we let him have his fun first, suffer later, ok?

The previous weekend, we were in Penang. I didn’t post about the trip earlier because I had lost all the photos taken on that trip. Geram betul! They were deleted by none other than the little rascal lah, who else!

I went out, left the camera on the dressing table, when I got home and checked the camera, the photos are all gone! I was so upset, tapi nak marah siapa kan? It was my mistake too for not keeping the camera in a safe place. I should have known better.

But I did take a picture of him at the Ultraman kindy (it was awesome!!) and I did find a great place to eat Nasi Kandar, ie. Kassim Mustafa.

Actually, we were looking out for a different restaurant (Hameediyah) but couldn’t find it along Jalan Penang when we saw “Kassim Mustafa - Nasi Dalcha & Nasi Kandar”. Then, I remembered muteaudio telling me that I should try Nasi Dalcha when in Penang and so I forced my husband to stop by.

It was a wise choice because the nasi dalcha was very delicious indeed. It tasted a lot like nasi minyak but not as heavy. The gulai ayam that accompanied the rice was very tasty too, making the meal simply heavenly.

The rest of my family members had the nasi kandar and they said it was very nice too. Habis licin semua pinggan! I will definitely go back to this restaurant the next time I’m in Penang.

We also tried the Nasi Kandar Beratur near Masjid Kapitan Keling since this place was heavily promoted by a friend. However, that was a bit of a disappointment because rasa dia biasa saja lah. I have tasted better nasi kandar in KL.

Maybe the timing was not right, tapi orang memang beratur lah kat situ!

We only managed to try two nasi kandar eateries this time, but that was just fine.

So now, the Top 2 in my Nasi Kandar list is Kassim Mustafa (Penang) and Kudu (KL)!

And the search still goes on…...

Hi Kak Ezza,

Sebelum ni, I pun macam you jugak. Tak teringin pun nak ke Sunway Lagoon sebab ingatkan tak de lah apa sangat. Tapi bila dah ada kat situ, wah lau.... best! Better than Genting! Pegi lah kak, bawa budak2. Sure diaorang suka!

MrsNordin,

If your camera stores the pictures on an SD card, and you haven't taken any more pictures after that into the same SD card,
there is a good chance to recover those deleted pictures.

It's similar to recovering deleted files from hard disk of a computer. Deleting a file from a hard disk usually doesn't fully delete it, just marking it for deletion.

These http://www.ehow.com/how_4461259_restore-deleted-files-sd-card.html webpage shows one way to do it.

wassalam,

The last I went to Sunway Lagoon was two years back for my husband’s company Family Day too. The Theme Park indeed is a fun place to be. I remembered we went home barbequed from the blistering sun hahahah……..

MrsNordin said...

Thanks, Sabre23t! I will surely try it!

I'm so relieved to know that I could possibly retrieve the pictures. Right now, the camera is at home and I'm at work. Will do it as soon as I get home today.

Thanks again!!

Hi Cilantro,

I'm sure you had fun too at Sunway Lagoon. When we were there, it rained intermittently, so it was wet most of the time. But the rain did not stop those you were playing in the water!

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

Kalau nak gi Sunway musim cuti (weekends, cuti sek., public hols., etc.), make sure sampai sana b4 10 am. Kalau tak teramatlah susah nak parking.
