May & June 2017 Recap

Another two busy month and a very BIG event. Yes! the Big Bad Box Sale. 

In May, I learn to cook more. This time learnt how to fry chicken. Yes, you heard it correctly. Fry chicken. Then there is Teacher's Day. Just a simple do. 

Next major event was Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2017.  A very busy two days . Went for my basketball practise then zoomed over to KLCC to collect my race kit. Afternoon zoom to KLPAC for Dr Balloon show and zoom back home just in time for tuition. 

Next morning woke up early to go for the Kids Dash but on the way home, it rained. Started to feel unwell in the LRT Station coz it was hot and "cold" at the same time. All trains going to the direction that we were heading to were fully packed. Mamarazzi finally brought me to take train heading towards the opposite direction. Disembarked at station that had less people waiting before boarding train to then correct direction. Started to fever  and had it bad at night.

This year BIG BAD BOX sale was the BEST among all the years. Books were nicely arranged and a large variety to choice from. For the first time in history, we bought 3 boxes of books. Previous sale we only managed to  fill one box as the choice were pretty limited. 

Another month , another story.. change of taste buds... lost a tooth..a trip..and presenting...the video of my life for May and June 2017.....



And YAY! Mamarazzi found how to add music to the video  and have done so for all the 3 recap videos

Thank you , Auntie Claire for alerting us that don't know why sometimes readers have to go to Youtube only can view the video. Can't view in blog. Errr... Mamarazzi had yet to figure out how to fix this issue. Any tips? Coz at the Video Manager in Youtube the following icon remains grey no matter what Mamarazzi clicked. 


  • Make this video available on all platforms





Hopefully can solve this issue soon. Meantime, please bear with me for a bit ya. Thank you.

March and April 2017 -Recap

March and April was a very hectic month for me. I got hooked on a popular computer game. Everyday after come back from school I would eat fast and simply packed my school bag so that I can get my 1 hour computer time.  Papa and Mamarazzi trusted me too much so they didn't check my packing. Trouble brewing for me in the following months.

But in between that, I managed to squeeze in some pretty interesting activities. Due to my basketball activity timing clashes with the FunLand timing, I had to stop going to the latter.  Anyway, no point rushing there coz by the time I arrive, it would be art and craft time. I don't like art and craft. I like singing and story time.

April was interesting month as it was Mamarazzi's birthday month and also my debut as an mini "entrepreneur" . Yes, the BJPE people let me have a stall to sell stuff. First time selling. No experience. After some time, I got bored and run here and there instead of selling stuffs. End up, i didn't earn enough money for my half yearly trip with friends. Mamarazzi said cannot go. Oh well...the i have been to the place before (sour grapes mode activated) anyway and I don't wanna go.


Okay here is the video slide show. It's a tad long. 5mins but then again, have to cramp so many things in it...hahaha...hope you don't fall  asleep watching.

Half Day Trip To Tanjung Sepat 2017

Did I mentioned my Kaw Kaw(aunt) came back for a visit last month? Well, she did but I didn't get to welcome her at the airport as it was a schooling day. Well, I did try to ask papa to come fetch me to the airport but Papa said the plane arriving 8am. Errrr... Told him no need to go to school lor...but.... oh well....






 According to Mamarazzi, first stop was for beef noodle. Supposed to be a famous one in Puchong . But Mamarazzi didn't like it much. Portion was  big but that's just it....portion big only.  Taste wise... hmmm...


 When Kaw Kaw  arrived home, guess what greeted her? Yes.... she sort of planted this tree when she threw the seeds into the garden 3-4 years ago . But each time she came back, it was not fruiting or the fruit was not ripe. This time it was  very good timing. papa was surprised to see one of the fruits had become ripe and smashed to the ground. Mamarazzi immediately harvest the rest of the fruits.

The next days was BJPE day. Too tired to do anything else after that...ahem... actually we did go out again la after BJPE. Went for tuition(yeah...tuition some more...sobs)... then went to Pasar malam..then went to Puchong Everyday Food Court to have Fried Oyster.

By end of it, everyone was zombified...maybe except for Papa la...he asked Mamarazzi what's the plan for the next day...go Tanjung Sepat? Mamarazzi said brain not working.... came home straight went to dreamland.

Crazy Mamarazzi suddenly woke up 4am in the morning... can't sleep....went and cook some chorizo (i love chorizo)... then 7am woke Papa up and said 7.30am go Tanjung Sepat.



 What's in Tanjung Sepat? Why wanna go Tanjung Sepat? Because Kaw Kaw loves the fishballs there. Each time if possible, we will go there when she come back for a visit.


 As everyone haven't had breakfast yet, we just eeny minie mole on shop. It was Pan Mee shop at the main street. Mamarazzi said she is not eating as her tummy was still sleeping. I had a small bowl of Pan Mee while Papa and Kaw Kaw had big bowl of Pan Mee.  Very Big Bowl.  Total RM13 only. Very cheap  for 3 bowls of noodles.

Next stop was the market. Bought some fishball, salted fish and kuih. No photos.


 Next stop was Lover's Bridge. Wow... they have rebuilt the bridge and bulldozed the two restaurants that were there.... big issue a few months back . Saw in facebook the lady boss was crying.

Anyway...found this big vase of rose ....

 The new Lovers Bridge. You jump jump jump sure won't collapse

 Mamarazzi stayed back while we walk to the end of the bridge. Too hot she said. 

 Still lovely view.

After a short stroll there and some shopping, we proceeded to the next venue.

 Wan Tee Longan Farm . Kaw Kaw was looking forward to the longan there but too bad, not ripe yet.... errr...these gourd can ar?  Previously this place had a lot of passion fruit but now the owner seems to grow this gourd instead.


Longan just started flowering. Not big enough yet. 



It's supposed to be as big as a pingpong ball. Though  not ripe yet, but smell delicious. Poor Kaw Kaw...but lucky Mamarazzi had freeze some Longan for KawKaw. May not taste as good as the fresh ones but at least got to taste gua......err.... not sure coz she brought the Tub of frozen Longan back to Ah Mah's house. Don't she got to eat any of it or not.


No longan but a lot of beautiful flowers instead. 

 Hah! who know what plant is this?  Old folk will know this. Youngster like me don't know. The Longan Farm Owner gave two leaves to mamarazzi. One of it is in her garden now. 

After the  Longan Farm, we had to rush back lo...time for my school activity...my schedule is  more busy than the adults leh

January and February 2017 Re-cap

When we started blogging, it was a trend to do year end recap. Is it still a trend now? Hmm...not sure. Didn't see much of that last year but then again, Mamarazzi have not been blog hopping much.

This year, we have not been blogging much. Call it lazy, call it busy. ....whatever it is... when looking back to this year posts...hmm... many are missing in limbo. 

Well, Mamarazzi started this blog as a diary for me . By right, every day have to write...but... oh well...I have been very busy with my boring life school activities. Morning go to school, evening come home took a shower. Have dinner . Pack my school bag and relax a bit before lights out. Day in day out the same. Weekends was filled with school activities...basketball... karate...extra tuition. 

Okay la...Mamarazzi have decided to do a recap or highlight of the past few months instead. Just record some of the important moments that happen this year. 

Hmm... shall she open up the comments box or should she close the comments box since it's all stale news? 

Hope you enjoy the following slide show  featuring events of January and February this year.

Kuala Lumpur Engineering Science Fair (KLESF) 2017

Surprise ! Surprise! Am back again... So soon?  Mamarazzi sotplug lo. Anyway, she is learning how to make slide show using Youtube.

Sorry ya if the slideshow not that nice. Don't know how to add music into it.

We went to Kuala Lumpur Engineering Science Fair last Saturday. Our second time there.

Last year went near closing time. Not enough time to browse. This year , 9am we arrived liao...walk walk walk ..play play play till 3.30pm still NOT enough time. Die or not die leh?


Mamarazzi said leg training for next month BBW sale.  KLESF venue happens to be the same venue as BBW and it even occupied Mezzanine floor too. Oh my kucing!......

I had loads of fun there and here is the slide shows and some videos *the slideshow and video embed correctly*



Sometimes Mamarazzi tagged along and snap my photos  or video and sometimes I walk alone at the fair. I know well enough not to go out of the hall and come back to the Check In point to check in on and off.



Saw this bamboo stick instrument... hahaha..very sharp tone.

>

There were a few booth that showcase this stimulation game. I find this one is the most funny. I slash and I slash. Mamarazzi said i nearly slash the TV too.



Can't leave the place without playing one last round of robotic. The pretty Jie jie taught me how to make this.

How I wish I can stay and play learn more but Mamarazzi said not enough time liao. Have to go off liao.

I play and play and play learn till forgotten about hungry. Only went and check in for a hardboil egg once.

It was fun educational. Hope next year can come again.

Update on 6th BJPE and The Return of the Big Bad Wolf Sale 2017

 The 6th Bukit Jelutong Plant Exchange was even better than previous . Why? Because this time we had the 1st Flea Market. Fuiyoh..... exciting. 


 Two days before the event, Mamarazzi sat down and labelled all the plants that we were donating. 

 This time there were around 6 boxes of plants only . No worries la. Each boxes have more than 20 plants in there.


 Not enough time to root everything as Mamarazzi was busy with mooncakes.  That's why she just pull out those which she had no time to propagate from the jungle garden. It was hillarious looking at her pulling up the baby banana tree and the kantan. Landed on her butt bottom a couple of times.


 On the day itself, we were one of the earliest there. This time, Mamarazzi booked/reserved a table at the Flea Market for me  to sell books, honey Lime, grape fruit marmalade , Aloe vera , figs cuttings and seeds.

Yup...she said school holiday coming and new school year going to start. If I want to go for  school trip, I had better earn the fare for the trip and money to pay for the new school books.

Happy to announce that thanks to Papa and Kaw Kaw's help , I managed to earn enough for my trip and books fees with some extra change. Oh ya...thanks to BBW too.

Speaking of......


The Big Bad WOlf is coming back again in December 2017. Location MIECC, The Mines Seri Kembangan. The sale will open 257 hours straight starting from 8th December to 18th December!

Time for me to go hunting again!


What was Mamarazzi doing while I was busy selling? She was helping at the Registration counter. Very happy to note that more people came this round and there were many plants donated generously by the visitors. And they have been "trained' to label the plants properly by  now.

Yes, it is very important to label the plants so that the new owners knows what plant it is. Not everyone are expert gardeners. Many are newbies. So labelling the plants helps a lot . Very happy to see at least one of the donor even took the trouble to print out the "Info Sheet" for the plant that he donated and attached them to the plants.


 While waiting for the plant exchange event to begin, visitors walked around and visited the booths available there.

There were around 20 booths selling various stuff. There are fertiliser, soil, seeds, toys, books, cakes, honey, LED lights, umbrellas and plants.

 
But I see, the most popular stall was Uncle Eric's stall . He was selling fruit plants at a very affordable price. Fruiting Vietnamese Apple only for RM30 a pot, raspberry RM35, Variegate Lime RM25 or was it RM15 and a few other plants. Harga durian runtuh weiiiiii.






It was.... omg... exciting and tiring day for me.... I straightaway zonked out when got into the car. Tiring but fun. Thank you very much to Bukit Jelutong Green Rangers and BJRA for coming up with this exciting event.
