The eagles have landed

As we were heading towards Ampang Park to look for the lrt train service, hatice suddenly said in Turkish...

Anne...what is that terrible smell??*

I asked baddin...

*do u think the d smell is terrible?*

he answered...

*Itz disgusting!!*...

As i giggled... i answered...

*Well kids...elcome to Malaysia... this is the smell of one of the food i love (coming from a restaurant nearby)...GET USED TO IT!!!*

hahahahahah Yes... Malaysia... the sight... the sound... the smell...

Yes....*Selamat Pulang* to me n *selamat datang* to my beloved..my princess n prince...

The first thing that striked us once we left the airport around 6.50am was the heat....that one day we were at my brother's place... he turned on both the fan as well as the air cond in his house!!!

Now that we r transfered to the hotel... the air condition n the pool have become the main thing right now.....

The sight... my kids truly was fascinated by the trees... he was asking me....how come there r so many trees??* esp during our journey from klia to my bro..

It was also fascinating to see how hatice n baddin strarted to get to know their cousins...my broz
's daughters.. despite not being able to understand each other's language...baddin speaking turkish to his 3 girls cousins....and they speaking malay to mine... the power of tickling.... hide n seek game n the blood relation can be imprtant factors to break the ice...it was interesting when hatice was able to hold izzati's hand..her cousin when we were out walking in IOI mall...or how they can laugh with each other.....i am really glad mychildren r getting to know their malaysian cousins...to be in touch with a part of their heritage....

The food is still a big problem naturally...we r still visiting the likes of kfc... mac D ...u know what i mean right? it will be only once we get settled in penang that i will b able to feed them nutricious food...n guess what?? being used to the milk in turkey with the sutas brand... they dont like malaysian milk!! hahahahah too bad kids.... milk..u will have to drink... everyday...

Despite everything... they r really happy... my beloved... the kids n i... we had a wonderful private family time today vsiting the bird park..butterfly park.. n cosmo theme park...it has been ages since we enjyed ourselves so much like this.... even at th pool... it was great! even though the pool is a
on the 10th floor (our room on the 29th floor)...it was decorated as such..there was waterfall falling nearbye...palm trees around the pool...n yes...butterfly too!!! the life saver esp kept making his rounds...fascinating by us..2 kids swimming..n one malay girl speaking a foreign language...

Things r Alhamdulillah going well so far...the flight was nice...my beloved was there....this is really a very much awaited getaway...we reaaly need this holiday tgether...

Of course...tomorrow will be a full day of socializing....my tesl friends....the blogger gathering...i should be sleeping now...i am exhausted...n typing in the dark is tiring indeed (thus the bad spelling)...

I am so glad to be here... the land i have missed so much... but today...i am no more than a
tourist... having to kep askig people on how to go here n there... my beloved said to me......

*u r a hopless case! u cant find anything without asking people!!* hahahhhha

cant wait to meet my friends tomorrow!!











Thank You for hopping by. Hope to see you again soon... :0)

Merhaba...

Syukur Simah&Halil dan anak anak dah sampai. Terubat kerinduan kepada tanah Malaya kot.

Panas tak pe tapi yg tak tahan bila berpeluh lenjun.

Bau apa yg budak budak tu tak suka. Bau kari ke atau asam pedas?

Semoga selamat semua

Hi Simah, enjoying your music as I type this. Couldn't help smiling your kids talkingTurkish, cousins Malay.
And yes, bila keluar airport, the heat is horrendous! Especially Malaysia's humidity.
You guys have fun, stay healthy and enjoy the lovely food.
Best regards, Lee.
