Hardrock Hotel Penang Part I

Date : 11th December 2009
We have to attend a friend's wedding dinner in Penang on the 12th Dec. So we took the opportunity to book ourselves into the Hardrock Hotel in Penang with their promotional rate. The rooms were really nothing to shout about as they are pretty small and would not justify the normal rate price that they are charging. I'm not complaining this trip cause we were only paying 50% of the normal rate.

We left KL early in the morning and drop my mother in law and our maid in Ipoh before continuing our journey to Penang. To our surprise, the entire place was packed and crowded. We were lucky that the front office was kind enough to check us in without much waiting because we have little Ryan with us.

Honestly, we were not totally impressed with the lobby nor the room but it was an experience.

We have not had our lunch and since we are too lazy to drive out for our lunch, we just went to the Hardrock Cafe for our lunch (at around 3pm). It was Ryan's first trip to his first Hardrock Cafe! The restaurant was not really crowded but it too quite a while before our meal came. Meanwhile, Ryan was enjoying himself having his pictures taken.

Kiss Kiss

Ryan is one fast learner and has learnt to make many funny faces whenever we mentioned certain words. We have taught him to put his hands and wave against his nose when we mentioned 'smelly'. Now whenever he has pooed in his diapers, he would walk to us and make the `smelly' sign and point to his soiled diapers.

The recent word that we taught him was `kiss kiss'. Whenever we asked him to `kiss kiss' he would give me and his mommy a kiss on our lips...He will even catch hold of Zoewe, our toy poodle and will plant a kiss on her nose! (with all his saliva).

I just hope that he does not start kissing all the little girls in the park or he could end up with a tight slap on his face soon....or parents would come complaining about our `Casanova' son kissing their daughters.....

Pa Pa and Ma Ma

Date : 2nd December 2009

After months of trying to get Ryan to call us, he is finally shouting 'Pa Pa' and 'Ma Ma'. He is a very noisy and talkative boy, often shouting and yelling on top of his lungs in a language that probably only he can understand. When he got hold of any handphone, he will put it to his ears and will start rambling and yelling as if he is talking to someone on the other side. But no matter how hard we try to teach and coach him, he just refused to call Daddy, Mommy, Di, Mi or Papa or Mama until today.

The very first word that he is good at is 'Emm Mooi'. (In Cantonese, is No or Don't Want). Whenever he doesn't want something, he will be frantically shaking his head and repeatedly said 'Emm Mooi. Emm Mooi..'

Looks like he has two more new words into his limited vocabulary. Two words that both his daddy and mommy is SO SO happy to hear him repeat over and over again...

The Youngest Windows 7 supporter

Was in Sunway Pyramid shopping recently and saw this backdrop. Couldn't help but to get both mommy and son to pose for this picture. He gave a big Flying Kiss and thumbs up for Windows 7. I guess I should sent this picture to Bill and see whether we could get some advertising or modelling fees. Ryan is probably his youngest Windows 7 supporter!!!!
