Ryan adores his Daddy. Throughout the day he will tell me how much he misses his Daddy. Sometimes I will allow him to call his Daddy on the mobile. The day before yesterday, he made the call during lunch time (the phone speaker was on).

Ryan: Daddy, I miss you. Are you coming home soon?

Daddy:  No, I have dinner tonight.

Ryan: *ignored Daddy’s answer* Are you coming home now? Can you come home when it’s day time?

Daddy: No, I can’t. I’ll be late tonight.

Ryan: Can we go to the beach?

Daddy: OK.. why not you and mommy plan for it. We go to the beach one day. Okay?

Ryan: Ahhhh.. but I want to go now. Can we go somewhere?

Daddy: Where do you want to go little boy? We can go somewhere tomorrow (31st August- public holiday)

Ryan: Err.. I don’t know. You think about it and don’t tell me. Okay Daddy. Give me a surprise.

Daddy: O-o-o okay, I’ll think about it.

Ryan: *hurriedly* OK. Bye.


31st August

As usual, hubs could not propose a good place to bring the ‘siu yeh zhai’ (that’s what some mommies from the school been calling Ryan). Of all placesm hubs suggested Mid Valley. Duh…

After a short brainstorming, we came close to two options. Either we bring Ryan to the butterfly park or the playground near our house where he could enjoy some fun kite flying session too.

We asked Ryan to make the decision and he chose butterfly park, so butterfly park it is.

We had wanted to bring lil  B along but just before we leave the house, it started to rain. We were even contemplating if we should proceed as planned. Ryan convinced us the rain will stop when we reach the park. Not wanted to disappoint him, we went as planned and left lil B (who was napping) at home under the care of Yeh Yeh and Loida.

We reached Butterfly Park @ Lake Garden around 4pm. True enough, there was not a single drop of rain eventhough the floor was a little wet and it clearly looked the rain had just stopped.

We paid RM20 for 2 adults. Kids FOC (not sure). We just paid RM20 and moved on.

At first glance, the whole place was in a such a sorry state. The place was poor litted and badly maintained. Good thing is the place is still considered clean, at least there was no litter spotted.

There were not many butterflies spotted. We were unsure whether it was due to the wet weather or it is generally the case even during hot sunny wheather.


 My baobei Ryan… he’s such a gem. Always know how to sugar-coat his words to make mommy happy


Looking as sad as the weather


One of the very few butterflies we spotted that day. *yawn*


Live pupa *yawn yawn*

  1. you know, malaika is the same too, if I ask her what she wants to eat/go, most of the time, her reply would be ‘I dont know, you think about it’.. I guess it is common…

    Even though the park was a disappointment, I am sure Ryan enjoyed going out with you guys sans little B…

  2. Where he learns the sugar-coat language huh? He must be observing and listening to Daddy gua? heehehhe

    We went to the zoo during the Raya and it was pathetic too *to my standard la*
