Ihsan is sleeping, finally. That was only after he being cranky, crying on and off in between playing since the noon. He was already sleepy yet he still wanted to play. He didn’t sleep during the afternoon. I did try to put him to sleep twice but he woke up right after I put him in bed. This little mister is getting cheekier and get me busier from day to day! I hope he won’t get up at least not until I finish producing this entry. Tp setakat ni dh 3 kali tgk dia. Sbb mcm terdgr2 suara dia nangis. Tp bila tgk elok je tdo cuma mcm xbape selesa. Starting this morning he’s having runny nose and a little cough. Most probably sbb masa jln2 dlm cuaca sejuk last Sunday. Hopefully it’s not getting worse. Will monitor his condition from time to time.
Back to the main story, we went to Yokohama on last Saturday, March 27th, 2010 to visit Murni and family. Last time we met was when Ihsan was still in my womb, at 37th week of pregnancy. Actually we planned to go to Yokohama during the coming Golden Week but suddenly we had a changed of plan. Hubby got a promotion ticket to Sanrio Puroland from the company. The ticket was valid for only 1 week. We only needed to pay 1000 Yen per person and free for children less than 4 or is it 3? years old. Each ticket can be used by 5 adults. Since we got the ticket for free so might as well we took the chance to visit them sooner. Kalau saja2 nk pegi Sanrio Puroland tu without the promotion ticket mmg takkan pegi kot. Lebih baik pegi DisneySea or Disneyland sbb ticket harga lbh krg je but Disney definitely jauh lebih best 😀
We started our journey at 6.00 am from home and reached there at about 10.00 am. We could arrive there sooner but as usual the traffic was heavy once we reached near to Tokyo and then we had difficulty in finding Murni’s home. Once reached there, we had lunch of rice with cheese. Xingat plak apa nama nya tp sedap sgt. Hubby pn suka n suruh mintak resepi hihi 😉 Lps rehat we got out again only after Zohor by Murni’s car. It was jammed on the road but we arrived at Sanrio Puroland at about 2.00 pm. We thought the place is an outdoor theme park but it wasn’t. The weather was quite nice on that day and if only we knew the theme park was indoor, we would go to Minato Mirai and Anpanman Museum first instead. Anyway, we had quite a fun at Sanrio Puroland. Worth the money we paid. Tp kalau nk byr original price ticket rasa nya mcm hmmm not really worth it la kot. At least to me. Baik pegi Disney. Tp kalau Disney org ramai sgt n belum tentu sempat nk main all attractions yg ada. Ada pros n cons la jugak. Terpulang la pd masing2 kan. Sanrio Puroland pn fun n not that bad either. Still… the excitement kt Disney unbeatable by Sanrio Puroland kot. After that, we went to Hard Off sbb slalu sgt dgr Murni dok citer psl Hard Off sblm ni. Owh mmg sgt best ye kedai 2nd hand ni. I’m a fan of 2nd hand shop but only here in Japan la. 2nd hand shop in Mesia I xtau mcm mana 😛 We surveyed fence utk Ihsan tp xbli pape dlu sbb kalau bli karang penuh plak kete Murni 😛 We got home after that sbb semua pn dh kepenatan. We had yummy dinner of fish curry dimasak oleh semestinylah psgan tuan rumah husband and wife. Dah lamaaa sgt xmkn kari ikan sbb my hubby malas nk mkn ikan sbb ada tulang 😛 Elok2 pas mkn tdokan anak2 plak. Lps tu bila semua dh tdo smbung sembang dgn Murni berdua kt dapur smbil mkn chocolate cake. Sesi membuncitkan perut 😀 Tp tula xdpt gak nk lama2 sgt sbb masing2 ada anak2 kecik karang tgh2 mlm nk kena bgn ntah bape puluh kali plak lg kan.

On the tomorrow of the day we went to Minato Mirai. But unfortunately the weather on day was a bit gloomy and windy. So it was quite cold brrr! It was supposed to be fun but semua pn xdpt sgt nk menikmati keseronokan sbb masing2 sibuk menahan sejuk. Kalau tau sejuk mcm tu awal2 semua org dh pakai baju berbungkus2 dh. Firstly we went to Cosmo World which was outdoor. We got into the the very big ferries wheel. All these while I’d been wishing to take a ride on this ferries wheel and finally my wish came true! Best la dpt naik tinggi2 n tgk2 luar from ferries wheel tu. If only the weather was nice it would had been better. Then we enjoyed a few of the games there before finally decided to get into Queen’s Square. Singgah Starbucks kejap tapau ice-blended. Sejuk2 pn minum ais 😛 Next, we headed to Anpanman Museum. Only Ihsan, hubby and I went to the Anpanman Museum while Murni and family went to Nishimatusya to buy some stuffs. We took some picture kt Anpanman Museum and looked around before finally decided to meet Murni kt Nishimatsutya sbb hubby pn dh kesejukan xlarat nk jln2 kt area Anpanman Museum tu. After that we decided to stop at another Hard Off and masa kt sini ada la rembat 2 toys utk Ihsan. Sbb murah sgt tu yg bli tu. Tp masih elok utk main. Setakat nk bg Ihsan lepuk2, tampar2, sepak2 bagai kan hihi 😛 Kalau rosak pn xralat. We straightly headed home after that. Lps solat Ihsan, hubby and I got out by ourselves to go to the 3rd Hard Off. We managed to buy some stuffs for Ihsan and for me. Lps tu terus blk rmh semula. Masuk je rmh ada bau best. Murni msk nasi lemak plak wah wah! Sedapnyer. Keje mkn je dok rmh Murni. Rasa xnk blk plak haha 😉 Lps mkn kami rehat2 jap then terus bertolak blk ke Nagano semula sbb nk kejar discount price highway 1000 Yen tu.

The traffic was quite smooth. Tp masa on the way lbh krg lg 100 km nk smpi rmh hubby dh ngantuk sgt2. Stopped kejap n hubby bli energy drink. Dia pn minum dgn semangatnya n continued to drive. Konon2 dh kembali bertenaga la. Tp after a few minutes driving tetiba semangat waja td tu dh hilang blk hihi 😛 Iyer2 aje. So we stopped at the next kwsan rehat. Hubby tdo nearly 3 hours la jugak. I pn tdo jugak tp tdo2 ayam je sbb xdpt nk baring. Yela seat tu xboleh reclined sbb brg penuh dlm kete. Then at about 2.00 am we continued our journey home. I dh terlelap2 dh tp ku tahan kan jua sbb nk temankan hubby drive. Masa ni still at the area Nagano belah atas. Wahhh ada yuki turun lebat plak. Xsangka la plak boleh jmpa yuki lg perghhh! So kena la drive slowly aje. Tp yg hampehnya lori2 n trailers semua pakat pecut jugak. Kami keter kecik2 ni je yg bwk slow2. Tetiba tgk apsal lori2 ni semua berderet ni n bwk slow plak ni? Rupanya ada lori2 tabur garam kt jalan plak kt dpn sana. Hihi pdn muka beriya je pecut td 😛 Lps2 tu xde dh yuki. Seb baik tmpt kitorg xde dh yuki turun. Tp sejuk jela. Rasa mcm nk pusing g Yokohama blk je 😛 We arrived home at about 4.30 am. Angkat2 brg. Solat Subuh terus tdo. Haih… penat sgt2. Luckily hubby mmg awal2 dh took leave on Monday. So yesterday we just lazed around, kms brg2, wat apa2 yg patut and qada our sleep. Only today baru rasa refreshed blk.
All in all we had a very great time in Yokohama. Sbnrnya plg seronok dpt jmpa Murni n family sbb dh lama xjmpa. Dpt spent masa sama2 n bwk anak2 jln2 sama2. Seronok sgt tgk gelagat anak2. Zayna pn dh jd anak dara dh n makin kawaii. Dlu baby2 je lagi. Zayyan pn dh bsr jugak n makin bijak. Geli hati je dok tgk gelagat Zayyan. Last time jmpa dia masa dia br 4 bln. How time flies! Thank you very much to Murni and family for the very great hospitality. Msk kan sedap2, bwk kan jln2 sana sini, pastu blk siap bekalkan segala mainan n baby stuffs utk Ihsan. Kami g sana bwk brg sket je. Tp bila blk sini semula brg2 dh bertambah sekali ganda! Segan je dgn Murni. Apa2 pun jgn serik terima kami sebagai tetamu lagi. Bebila ada rezeki kiter jmpa lagi InsyaAllah. Semoga Murni n family sihat n dimurahkan rezeki sentiasa, amin 😀
