Thursday, May 29, 2008VIP Living For A Day
Due to some hiccups by management, someone forgot to arrange for my accommodation while I am in Kota Bharu for a meeting. It was only a couple of days ago that I found out about it. When I called Renaissance for a last minute booking, I was informed that they are almost fully booked due to school holidays. All they could spare was a Junior Suite! Hence, the company have no choice but to pay for it :P
Upon arrival, I was told to check in on the 19th floor, as opposed to the usual check-in counter at the lobby. A concierge was assigned to escort me as you need an access card to reach the "Club Floor" via the lift. FYI, your room access card only enable you to get to your floor, the rest of the floors are off limits!
At the Club Lounge on the 19th, they checked me in within 5 minutes. I was given a "welcome letter" and the access card to my
It has a king-size bed with six pillows!
You can imagine the size of the bathroom...
This will be my
After 15 minutes, someone rang the bell. It was a hotel staff bringing me the following...
Guess what? According to the "welcome letter", everything (food and beverage) provided in the Club Lounge are complimentary! I am never going to leave this floor!!
Ahhh... IF only this dream could last longer than 24 hours...
p/s: Still... I wished J and the boys can join me :(

Wednesday, May 21, 2008Our FRISO!
I got some Friso packs two days ago. One tin of Friso Gold 4 for my #1 and another tin of Friso Gold 3 for my #2.
A little background on both my sons’ milk powders. #1 dislikes any form of formula milk since he was taken off breastfeeding when he was 2 years old. We tried many brands but to no avail. We could only sneak some into him by mixing it with other hot drinks like Milo etc. As for my #2, we didn’t want to make the same mistake. So, we gave him formula milk since he was 6 months old.
The milk powder we gave to both of them are conventional ones only, with no extra GOLD features or whatsoever. Hence, Friso Gold is clearly considered an upgrade in every aspect. First of all, we love the “hygiene pack” that came with the tin. It’s much easier to open and close compared to the conventional aluminum covers. It also prevents the milk powder from being contaminated by water and germs (especially true since our milk powder inside kept at the kitchen).
From the information displayed on the tin, the Friso Gold formula will equip my children with a healthy combination of prebiotics (FOS), probiotics (L. reuteri), nucleotides, selenium and mixed carotenes. It also has DHA, AA and SA for my children’s overall development.
That being said, as a parent, what I would look for in any milk powder is it gives my child the ability to build up their own natural immune system to withstand common bacteria, virus and germs. This is especially true in my case since both my boys are really active and outgoing in their daily routine. From what I can see, Friso Gold is a very good choice for both of them.
p/s: I am writting this from Hong Kong :P

Friday, May 16, 2008Travelling Alone
Due to J's pregnancy, she is not allowed to board a plane.
That means I will be going to Hong Kong alone (for a conference) and missed the golden chance of bringing our boys to Disneyland next week.
It will be a lonely 4 days for me...

Monday, May 05, 2008Genting Daytrip - 1
A couple of weeks ago, we were running out of place to bring our two monkeys for their weekend. Listening to Little Skywalker's repeated "我现在要做什么啊?" was kind of getting to our nerves. Then, it hit me. We would try to make a daytrip up Genting Highlands for a change.
Surprisingly, I realised I only needed 45 minutes to reach the peak and less than that coming down (well within speed limits). And guess what? We spend less than 20% of what we normally do and get more of it than we normally do (our last trip ended with two boys with fever)!
And of course, tons of pictures...
