Entries in apartment (192)


Evening Air

We went out after dinner tonight as we had some items we needed for the weekend. Some toys for birthday boy on Sunday as well as Anita eyeing some new clothes.

It had been raining all afternoon and the air tonight was really cool. After we returned, I decided to sit out at the balcony enjoying the breeze.

The same perspective as above but in colourIn almost darknessKLCC and KL Tower in between the building ...While there, I tried to see how capable the P9 was at taking photos of cityscapes at night. Even in colour it was pretty capable. I must say I am pretty excited with the project of the P10, especially the Plus. It would carry a Summarit-H 1:1.8/27. It’s going to be amazing ...

The Little Garden

Since the renovation was done, Anita had been keen on getting some greeneries at the balcony. It may be a touch overboard but I felt that it was a nice change. It created some space for me to chill at, and who wouldn’t want that, especially when you were tired after work.

I finally had the chance to take come picture of the flowers since it was Sunday and I had an extra hour at home before heading out to work. We were blessed with gorgeous weather that morning as well.

There was a still one end of the balcony that she cold expand to if she wishes so, but as it stood at the moment, she would start with a small area first. Maybe in the next few month, we may venture to other side. The morning breeze certainly made a lot of difference and I could just spend all morning there ... with a mug of coffee in hand.

I also noticed that Anita loved to keep pitches as decorations. She picked plenty of them up when we were in the UK, and now that she had some pace to put them, they all came out from the boxes. I wonder what would be next ...

Rocking the View

Anita has now gone all out for the balcony after the renovations were done. She bought some furnitures the other day, and expanded her “garden”. Now, I had a new spot to sit at after coming home from work.

Traffic jam downstairsA bit hazy this afternoon ...Nice view of the busy traffic passing by while waiting for the sun to set. It rained a bit earlier and the breeze was fresh. A nice way to unwind after my call last night ....

Idlan's First Lesson

Since joining his new school, Idlan felt that he was left behind in two aspects; swimming and music. Most of his classmates were able swimmers and almost all of them can play a musical instrument. It ended up being rather intimidating when he was having PE lessons especially around the pool.

Last week, Anita asked for names on the apartment Facebook page if anybody knew of any swimming instructors. She got a name and made a few phone calls last week. Idlan was keen, so today he had his first lesson.

5 pm on a Sunday was just about right. It would mark the end of his weekend while making him tired enough to hit the bed early for school the next day.

He hit it off very nicely with his coach and they spent the first half an hour on breathing exercises. Idlan was very happy in the end and hopefully in the coming months, swimming in school would become less intimidating.

And now we had to do something about music. We had problem arranging somebody to teach him drumming in school since he had to skip class to do so. We were still trying to figure out the best way for him and it sounded like we may to engage a teacher to come over to the apartment as well .... Unfortunately Dad can't teach him...

A Long Sunday

I woke up this morning in glorious sunshine having a nice sleep. No phone calls until 7 am, when I went to the bathroom to brush my teeth, pray, check on the boys and slept again in front of the TV while checking on the news.

Learned that Liverpool got beat again. Always a good start to a Sunday!

When I finally left the room, it was just after 9. Had some food before starting the Weekly Sunday Morning Ward Round (tm). And it was a long one, adding to that a few new referrals and admission. It was close to 3 pm when I finally left the hospital.

Decided to take Anita out for a late lunch, and off we went to Pavilion for my favourite Arab food. This was followed by a trip to the flower shop which Anita had been talking about. She wanted some indoor orchids for the apartment now that the renovations were almost done. I didn’t realise that there was a warehouse close to our place which sold flowers in bulks. And they were really fresh, usually bought by flower shops from around town for profit. As you can imagine, things there were pretty cheap and the post-CNY business was slow at the moment.

Anita bought a few flowers but planned for more in the coming days once she knew where to put them.

Nothing beats a nice afternoon dipThe weather wasn't really clever, but it was breezy!Nice sunset when we left the oolChecking on the homework ...As soon as I reached home, Idlan asked if he could go to the pool. Without hesitation, it was time to get wet! We were in the pool until almost sundown .... A full day indeed. And now United would be playing at midnight and SuperBowl would be tomorrow morning. Though I have a full day planned, I might catch a glimmer or two of the match at work. Time to tuck the boys in bed .... After doing their homework of course.
