Shopping at our Fav Haunt

Sunway Pyramid is really a one-stop shopping mall for all OUR needs.

After bringing Coco for his extra lesson in preparation for his pre-novice examination the next day, Alan and I showered, had a late breakfast (of leftover bacon sandwich and a blueberry muffin), instructed our gardener Ah Chu with regard to our garden and then left for Sunway Pyramid.
Next door was a shop that Alan wanted to patronise and so we stopped by first for him to pick up his remote control car body kit and paints :P Again, it worries me that my husband has not grown up and I will have two babies to take care of in the near future :P

We were STARVING when we arrived at Sunway at around 230pm. I coveted the Vietnamese food we had once eaten there and thankfully the restaurant had not closed down. O'Viet was located and we shared a platter for an appetiser, made up of vegetables and meats and rice paper. And then both of us each had a bowl of beef noodle soup. I washed down the oil with my lemongrass and ginger drink whilst Alan had a traditional Vietnamese coffee.

After the meal and with smiles plastered on our faces, we proceeded to SHOP. Finally, we located Annaku from the map and checked out the prices of certain items we wanted to buy. However, we ended up buying Ethan's mosquito net and stand from World of Cartoons, together with another box of nappy liners.
Then, we headed to Parkson to pick up diapers. The Drypers were going for RM39.90 at 56 per pack (with a free set of mittens) and MamyPoko was going for Rm38.50 for 52. We picked up one packet each in order to test their suitability on Ethan's little bum bum. Also, I chose a medicine (touch wood) feeding spoon and two CD/ VDV combos which we will play on Ethan's CD player in his room to keep him entertained when awake. We invested in Breastflow milkbottles (which has teats which apparently greatly resemble the mother's nipple), some corn starch powder and also some batteries (for Ethan's mobile, stroller fan and womb-sound player). - Yes, my son is a pampered little prince ;P Since our godson, Hayden's 7th birthday is coming, we also chose him a Bionicle character which needs to be fitted together , from Lego.

After stepping outta Parkson (and lamenting on why I hadn't brought the RM50 Parkson voucher I had stashed away), we were greeted by a lovely sight - Pets Lovers Centre! We hurried in and bought three packets of kibbles of the brand Fish4Dogs. The cod fish formula had apparently made Coco's fur very shiny and we wanted to continue feeding him that. Each packet came with a free gift of sea jerky as well (which retails in Singapore at around SGD$9/ pack)!! We bought Myra one packet of kibble too, as promised.

Alan needed to pick up some hardware for the house/ garden and so we headed up Ace Hardware. I stoned outside with a trolley piled to the brim with our shopping and thankfully there was an empty seat to rest my bulging ankles and aching feet. :P After 15minutes or so, Alan emerged with a saw, a grass cutter and also some rubber protectors for Ethan's cot.

By this time, it was late 5pm and I was dead tired from all that shopping / strolling. We hopped into Zen (Secret Recipe) for a drink but Alan couldn't resist the moist chocolate cake and ordered a piece to be shared whilst we happily indulged in our fruit juices (orange, apple, carrot and apple, lemongrass and ginger). The cake was just to die for and worth all of the ten-minute wait! :O~~

Then, we found our way to the car park and made our way home...
After dinner, Alan and I busied ourselves with more preparation for Ethan's arrival. Alan set up the mosquito net and stand and experimented with the high-tech stroller. I tested the stroller fan, mobile etc if they were functioning and continued to add little decorations in his room. I pasted some sponge numbers of his loo door and some cutesy little icons (bought in Malacca) on his drawers for decoration. ;) It was after midnight when we crawled into bed, exhausted.
