Sunday 8 January 2012


I just love shopping! woke up this morning and told daddy to take me to Ikea well actually not so much shopping but I was more tempted with Småland - a play room daddy calls it. Anyway Ikea wasn't the destination as it would be too crowded so instead mommy suggested 1 Utama (which was pack with people as well when we got there).

We left home around 1400hrs to have lunch at Lai Foong Beef Noodle at Taynton View which mommy think was better than Tangkak Beef Noodle @ Taman Maluri, anyway I enjoyed it as well since I finished a whole bowl myself and mommy needed to order another bowl for herself.

After lunch daddy drove to 1 Utama and the traffic wasn't what daddy expected, must be because of Chinese New Year which is just around the corner. Anyway daddy was so lucky to find a parking right next to the escalator. I got a new pair of Princess sunglasses and got to eat my favorite BBQ Plaza as well.

Just before we left, we bought a small pack of Garrett Popcorn... Yummy!

Lunch : Beef Ball Noodle @ Lai Foong
Dinner : BBQ Plaza

Sam Ku Poh Off To Australia

Everyone in Ipoh was leaving today including Sam Ku Poh. I woke up fairly early this morning and watched Gulliver's Travel with daddy and wet out for lunch at McDonald's since I wanted a playground and coincidentally Yao En (hopefully I got her name spelled correctly my kindee mate) was having lunch too with her parent. I had so much fun at the playground with her. When we got home, grandpa arrived from Ipoh after daddy wanted the salted chicken from Woolley Food Court. Since we were going to meet up for dinner I followed Grandpa back with Granny, Sam Ku Poh and Toon!

Sam Ku Poh made me a paper puppet which I had lot of fun drawing it but unfortunately no one took any photo of it! Then at 1800hrs daddy and mommy came to pick up for dinner at Oldman Restaurant before Sam Ku Poh to airport for her flight to Melbourne. I am not going to say anything bad about this restaurant since it is Granny's favorite hang out place with her friends.

She should be over Indonesia now while I am typing this!

Lunch : 100% Beef Burger @ McDonald's
Dinner : Fried Noodle @ Oldman Restaurant (totally agree with the comments on this blog)

Last Day Of The First Week In School

Mommy sent me to school again today as daddy woke up sick. He stayed at home the whole day today and slept throughout the afternoon too! He slept more than I did. Did not even take my afternoon nap today since tomorrow I've got no school!

In the afternoon I was actually playing next to daddy while he was sleeping and I even fed daddy a Panadol since he was complaining a bad headache, must be due to the weather. It has been so hot the paste 3 days.

Mommy found some old photo of me with Great Granny, we took last year!

Lunch : Rice With Fried Eggs and Pork
Dinner : Turmeric Rice with Vegetable Tofu Soup

Lunch : Noodle
Dinner : Turmeric Chicken Rice (mommy's specialty)

First Day Of School

Today is my first day in year 5 kindee! I am in 5N unfortunately not all my classmates are in the same class as there are 3 classes instead of 2 last year. I arrived at school at 0800 sharp since the school is starting at 0800hrs instead of 0830hrs. Not sure why are they starting the school so early since Year 1 are mainly in afternoon session. Anyway did not have much problem waking up since I slept early today. Then mommy and daddy came to pick me up at 1130hrs.

When we got back, Aunty Aey just woke up and starting to pack her bags since she will be going back to Bangkok today at 2130hrs. While I was sleeping in the afternoon, mommy and Aunty Aey went out to get some souvenirs for grandma and friends back in Thailand. We left for dinner around 1900hrs but only to realised we will not have enough time to get to the airport if we had dinner.

We arrived in the airport at 2015hrs just in time to check in but was caught off guard when Aunty Aey was told she was only able to check in 1 luggage instead of total weight. Fortunately we were able to check in the luggage after wrapping both item together.

Note that while purchasing the ticket Aunty Aey were not told that only 1 check in luggage was allowed! and it was also not stated on both e-ticket which was sent as well as the ticket emailed after daddy made a complain!, below is the e-ticket

As you can see it is not stated in the ticket which we are allowed only "1 check-in" luggage or the maximum weight but a link ( to the their website which none of us did check, our mistake and I wonder how many would actually click it. At the airport during check in, even the staff mention that normally it would be stated on the ticket and she was also looking for it as well! So daddy called and even wrote to Luthansa and the replied were the same, below is the correspondence with Lufthansa,

Dear Mr. Chow,

Dear Xiyong,

Thank you very much for your reply but it was not stated on the tickets I attached together on the email I sent earlier and I do not remember it being shown during booking and only to  find out that we were allowed 1 check-in luggage when we got to the airport. I think the information on the luggage should be shown on the ticket.

Please advice.

Dear Mr. Xhow,

Thank you for contacting Lufthansa German Airlines Customer Relations.

We regret to learn that you had trouble whilst helping Ms. Xxxxxpakdeewong to check in the baggage for her Lufthansa flight.

We would like to take this opportunity to advise you regarding the free baggage allowance of Lufthansa.

The free baggage allowance may be different depending on the routing travelled, the airfare paid, the type of membership etc.
This is why we are unable to inform every passenger of each application.
Instead, we ask our customers to refer to our information on website for detailed and complete baggage information.
We would have wished that you kindly had called us or visited our website to follow the link (information & service > baggage > baggage guide) before you decided to pack the baggage.

The free baggage allowance for the passenger’s ticket (220-XXXX108506) was one piece of maximum 23kg of weight and within the total dimension of 158cm.
We hope this is of information.

We look forward to welcoming you or Ms. Xxxxxpakdeewong on board again soon, and assure you that we will do our utmost to ensure that the future flights proceed to your satisfaction.

Sincerely yours,

Xiyong Xak

Anyway, Luthansa is still a better airline compare to Air Asia but there other other airlines which does this sector,
1) Royal Jordanian (mom tried and it was fantastic) - normally the cheapest and great service! except that you might need to pay at the airline office.
2) Egyptair (not tried since the fare were much higher)
* but check on luggage allowance here

After sending off Aunty Aey we drove back for dinner and call it a day since I had to go to school the following day!

Lunch : Prawn Noodle
Dinner : Fried Hokkien Noodle

Back Home

I woke up very early this morning again since we needed to arrive at the crematorium before 0900hrs to collect and place Great Granny's bones into the urn and we got to the place just in time for it, it started almost immediately when we got there. It was a very simple and quick ceremony but instead of using our hands, we used a chopstick provided to pick up the bones and place it inside the urn. After placing all the bones into the urn, the remaining ashes were spread into the Kinta River, just across the YMCA building.

Video taken today at the crematorium,

After spreading the ashes into the river, I went home with Grandma while daddy and mommy went to buy Kacang Puteh from Kampung Kacang Puteh @ Taman Pertama with Sei Kau Gong.

We arrived back at home just before 1700hrs as planned by daddy to skip the rush hours.

Tomorrow will be my first day of year 5 kindergarten, Kinderkids Pre-School 1 @ Sungai Long Section 7.

Lunch : Eipoh Restaurant, Pasir Pinji
Dinner : Salted Chicken - RM16 per chicken (bought back from Woolley Food Court, Ipoh Gardan)

Great Granny's Wake - Funeral

I woke up very early today so that I could pay my last respect to Great Granny. I arrived in Great Granny's house at 0830hrs and the ceremony started at 0915hrs and lasted for 45mins before we left the house for the crematorium at Kek Look Seah Crematorium Bercham Ipoh (怡保巴占极乐社西竺海会坛火化场).

We walked from the house to the main road before boarding bus for the crematorium. When we got to the crematorium, a last rite was held before Great Granny was pushed into the combustion chamber which Great Granny will be burned for 3 hours. The ceremony took about 30mins and I had to pray, respect, walk over fire, received a "hong pao" and washing my hands with flower water in the crematorium, then everyone went for lunch at Pusing Seafood Restaurant, a must try dish would be "Yam Fried Kai Lan" (it was unfortunately no photo was taken because when the dish was served, it did not not look good at all).

After lunch I went back to the hotel and slept until 1830hrs before headin for dinner and then drinks at Old Town White Coffee. Tomorrow I would need to wake up early again as we need to get to Kek Lok Seah to pick up the ashed and placing the urn in the columbarium.

The route I walk,

Great Granny's Wake - Second Day

Today is the second day of Great Granny's wake but I woke up noon and I had to be at the house for prayer to seal the casket at 1500hrs sharp! Anyway we manage to get back home at 1430hrs after having lunch at Yat Yat Seng, which is famous for their roasted pork curry noodle, but a whole plate of steam chicken rice! which surprised mommy and daddy.

After a short ceremony of placing talisman with a god palm facing Great Granny's head and the casket was sealed exactly 1500hrs sharp! Then it started to rain heavily and the drain outside the house almost overflow onto the street.

After the rained stopped I went out with Tai Ku Poh, Yee Ku Poh and Aunty Cyn Cyn for dinner at Woolley before the evening prayer starts. Not long after we got back home from dinner, my cousin arrived from Kuala Lumpur and I had more people to play with since Uncle I-Hui has gone back to Singapore via Firefly.

I went home much earlier today with Tai Ku Poh since daddy was afraid that I might not be able to wake up tomorrow for the funeral.

Lunch : Chicken Rice @ Yat Yat Seng
Dinner : Beef Ball Noodle and Salted Chicken @ Woolley Ipoh Garden
