A'isy Zafran's progression in school - 3rd month

 Hey my dear readers,

How are you coping with this RMO month ? I hope everyone are doing their part by staying at home and stay safe.

Like always , every end of the month. I will update on my son A'isy's school progression. πŸ‘¦✌

Rizki, One of A'isy's BFF

Trying to do balancing

This month, I noticed that A'isy is constantly challenging my patience. But I think he probably acting appropriately for the 4 year old age range. And maybe he wants more attention since his baby sister was born. Typical 1st child behavior.

He is more aware of and agree to rules though. As I mention before in my February post. And also easily break them too . Lol πŸ˜„ I need to keep reminding him the rules over and over again. But he is aware of the rules whenever he is in the MOOD 😏 kids huh ? lol ~~

I've read that According to American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), normal behavior in a 4-year-old might include:

  • wanting to please and be like friends
  • showing increased independence
  • being able to distinguish fantasy from reality
  • being demanding at times, cooperative at times
Exactly the behavior and character that A'isy portraying right now. πŸ˜™

He always want to play with his friends, lovable and friendly as he is. Sometimes he is too harsh and made his friends feel uncomfortable. So this trait, I have to slowly explain to him on how to approach people nicely and its okay if people say no or deny to play with him sometimes. 

Well, he took this lesson well. He can accept that not everyone has the mood to play. While he understands others feelings, He also acknowledge about his feeling too. 😘

Since on the half month of march, we were in RMO / MCO . So there's no schooling at this time. I figure out that he is more tentative on getting answers on questionnaire's that he constantly asked. He will ask every single thing he sees or listen too. So at this time of age, parents needs to be very careful with the words / language that we speak in  front of our kids.

He's had tons of energy so I had to keep up with him. Playing interactive games, coloring , singing, dancing, all sorts of things that I can think of. Lol ~~ πŸ˜‰

I hope that the RMO will end soon and the covid19 virus will vanish and everyone will be safe soon. Let us all pray and hope everyone we know will be safe and healthy.

Do your part by staying at home and spend precious time with your family before we start back our usual routine. πŸ’“

Take care all , see you soon  ~~

Well thats all for now ! Thanks a bunch for reading my blog !! I hope you enjoy as much as I do πŸ˜πŸ˜˜

Be nice, Be respectful and Be responsible. 


Love and regards,

Furama Hotel marries tradition with contemporary trends by having traditional game tournaments
and unique bubble tea flavors its patrons. 

Hey guys, 

I was given the chance from Furama Hotel Bukit Bintang to taste their delicious scrumptious menu preparing for this year's Ramadan month. 

So here I'll give you my honest personal review on the menu , atmosphere and services provided for you guys okay?  πŸ˜†

Ramadan is just around the corner. As Muslims contemplate each long day’s fast, and reflect on the spiritual nourishment the month of Ramadan brings them, thoughts will invariably turn to another type of sustenance. This is the place where we can gather and be together enjoying great food with a nice atmosphere.

SPICES is on the 3rd floor . The dining area is quite spacious and well placed. The BBQ section is outside near the pool. So anyone who wants enjoy beautiful pool scenery can definitely book a table outside.

Spacious dining area.

There's also table sitting outside for diners to enjoy the pool scenery. 

Ushering in the holy month of Ramadan this year, the culinary team at Furama Bukit Bintang has skillfully put together a sumptuous buffet spread of authentic local Malaysian cuisines at SPICES @ Furama Bukit Bintang

Themed ‘Selera Kampung’, the team has decided to give the buffet a contemporary twist by including the current all-time favourite bubble tea, or also fondly known as ‘Boba’. Flavours include Boba Syrup Bandung, Kurma Milk Boba, Teh Tarik Boba, Cendol Boba, and the all-time favourite Milk , Gula Melaka Boba and Chocolate Boba.

Bubble / Boba Tea
To make breaking fast with friends and family even more momentous, Furama Bukit Bintang is also hosting a traditional games tournament where participants stand a chance to win a 3 days 2 night stay. Further to this, there will also be a ‘Pelita lighting ceremony to kick off each evening.


The buffet spread will highlighting authentic Malay dishes from the basic appetisers of ‘Ulam’, Sambal’ and ‘Kerabu’ to main courses of ‘Nasi Hujan Panas’, ‘Kambing Tumis Hitam Ala Mamak’, Udang Sambal Berpetai’ and many more. 

There's varieties of sambals like the typical ' Sambal Belacan' , ' Budu Cili ' , ' Sambal Mangga' and ' Sambal Tempoyak' . The ' Sambal Mangga' was really delicious as the mango was tangy and sweet paired with the spiciness of the sambal. It was just PERFECT  !! πŸ’“πŸ‘Œ

The 'Sambals'

The ' Kerabu' and Local salad

Salads with variety of dressings

The ' COLD' salad. 

There was array of ' Kerabu' choices. ' Egg Chili Kerabu', ' Squid Kerabu' , ' Cow Stomach Kerabu' and ' Pucuk Paku Kerabu'. I really enjoyed the 'Cow Stomach Kerabu' and 'Pucuk Paku Kerabu'. The taste was exquisite and mouth-wateringπŸ’—. I'm salivating now just thinking about the taste again. 😩😜

There's the 'Cold Salad' section too. I like the 'Potato Salad' , ' Prawn Salad' and ' Mango Salad' . It's refreshing and flavorful . Totally recommended for light eater. πŸ‘πŸ˜€

Daging Masak Lemak Cili Api 
Ayam Panggang Percik Kelantan
Stir Fried Lamb with Ginger & Capsicum 
Kambing Tumis Hitam ala Mamak 

Daging Masak Kari Kentang 
Ikan Masak Berlado

Nasi Hujan Panas ( Colorful rice )

Sambal Udang Petai 
Sotong masak cili 
Pindang Ikan 

Labu Masak Lemak Cili

The main courses was of course all ' Kampung' style dishes. The dishes that I delectably prefer to eat was the Labu Masak Lemak Cili , Stir Fried Lamb with Ginger & Capsicum and Sotong Masak Cili.  πŸ‘πŸ˜

Another must-have during fast-breaking is the 'Bubur Lambuk', together with ‘Lemang’, ‘Beef Rendang and Chicken Rendang ’, and ‘Sup Berempah Ayam and Sup Ekor’ .

Just to give you a hint of Hari Raya celebration foods.. πŸ˜‰ 


Straight off the grill, or in the Malay language “Langsung Dari Pemanggang”, is the Furama
Signature Grill Lamb or ‘Kambing Bakar Istimewa’. Grilled food lovers can also look forward to grilled beef, chicken, fish, mussels and not forgetting the local favourite – Satay.

The Grilled Lamb was juicy and tender. Cooked to perfection by our chefs just outside the pool area. I ate it with mint sauce and black pepper sauce . Deliciously decadent !!! 

I had the mussels, prawns and squids too. πŸ’—

There are some that already marinated and fresh ones. The marinated ones are quite good as it eliminates the gamy and fishy smell on the seafood. A must try ! πŸ‘Œ

The BBQ section is right outside next to the pool area.


Keeping to the authentic Malay cuisine theme, there will also be a wide selection of local desserts such as Kuih Bakar Kemboja, Kuih Talam Pandan, Kuih Kasui, Kuih Bingka Ubi, Kuih Bengkang, Kuih Talam Sagu, Pulut Panggang, Badak Berendam, Lompat Tikam, ice kacang and Pengat Durian.

They also served various kind of western desserts such as Puddings, Jellies, Cupcakes, Cheese Tarts, Cakes, Brownies, Cream Puffs and even Chocolates Fountain with various selections for you to devour and indulge.

So for the desserts , I had the colorful Cupcake, Brownies , Strawberry Cake, Caramel and Chocolate Creampuff and various Cheese Tarts. Everything was delectably delicious and satisfying. Not forgetting the malay desserts,  Kuih Kaswi, Kuih talam , Pengat Durian and Pulut Panggang. Reminding me of my childhood , tea time with my late Grandmother. May Allah bless her soul. πŸ˜‡πŸ’—


If diners are looking to take a break from spiced dishes, the restaurant also prepared a Western Corner, serving various types of Salad, Mushroom Soup, Mash Potatoes and Buttered Vegetablesincluding assorted pastas.

Corn in a cob

Buttered Mash Potatoes
