Gold Coast Morib || Emir dan Flying Fox

Salam 

Ramai tanya kenapa dan mengapa i ni dah makin malas update blog. Kenapa blog dah berhabuk. Kadang-kadang semangat nak update, lepas tu hancus, tak jadi pulak nak update. Macam tak de je cerite menarik nak share. 

On top of that, tak sangke masih ada orang lagi yang sudi jenguk-jenguk ke sini. 

Since banyak gambar dalam phone saye, ok ini cerite masa Cuti Hari Malaysia. Lama dah kan, kire dah sebulan lagi. Masa tu kami ke sini secara impromptu. Mulenyer saya tiba-tiba decide nak ambik cuti dua hari. Hari Malaysia jatuh pada hari Selasa 16 September, hari Isnin tu keje lagi. So masa datang keje, I gatai mintak cuti hari Rabu and Khamis and tadaa-- approved. 

Since dah ambik cuti, hubby mule-lah melingkau nak ajak jalan-jalan. Mulenye dia nak ajak pi Kuantan, tapi kalau setakat sehari je nak pergi Kuantan, memang i penat lah kan.. so rejected. Then Emir ajak pi Sunway Lagoon. Tapi i macam nak tido hotel. Tahu kan feeling orang nak tido hotel ni. 

So i browse lah, masa tu pun budak-budak cuti sekolah.

I mintak cari yang dekat, masa tu pulak pagi 17 the next day, belum packing, belum decide.

Then i terus cadang Gold Coast ni. I tau kalau tengok review dekat Agoda memang ramai yang mengutuk. Cakap kotor lah, aircon tak jalan lah, membazir lah.. but i think its to the person itself. How you treat your vacation, kalau u pergi 3 star hotel dont expect 5 star treatment, and when you know the hotel has high density, jangan lah expect orang sikit je dekat situ. 

Dulu i pernah call tapi depa kate kalau cuti sekolah memang penuh. so i dengan penuh harapan, cuba lah call, then tadaa.. boleh pulak ada bilik kosong lagi and they allowed walk in gitu je. 

We arrived there around 5 pm, dah la dah lambat, lepas tu demand nak beli ngadap pool. Nasib lah permintaan dimakbulkan memandangkan masa check-in tu i cool je sebab orang depan i potong i punye q and ade orang sibuk2 tengah complaint.

Alhamdulillah


ini view dari bilik hotel kami

Masa ni husband i rajin pulak bawak kamera besar dia, and rajin pulak ambik gambar.. tapi as usual alasan yang akan i gunekan adalah i malas nak transfer, so gambar i bersuke ria macam budak kecik naik turun slide dengan emir tak de lah untuk tatapan "peminat" bahaha.. Seronok sebenarnyer naik turun slides ni..

Balik je dari main dekat pool, Emir ni boleh pulak dia sambung balik mandi dekat jacuzzi. Seriously i have nothing to complaint. Yes, ada je hiccups especially masa time breakfast, ya rabbi ramai betul orang.. tapi well, kalau cuti, tak yah nak stress stress kan.. 

Malam pertama tu, husband i tido awal, tinggal lah Emir dengan I, kiterang bantai tengok cerite Krishh.. Both Emir dengan I tergelak-gelak sampai nak pengsan tengok padahal cerite tu tak kelakar pun. Kiterang gelak sebab how tak logik the cerite.. Lompat dari highway sampai ke island lah, this lah Anyway, love the mother and son bonding time. Seriously, we really laughing like mad, sampai Papa pun terjaga and bising suruh kiterang tido :p


Oh before Papa tido, i mintak izin dia nak pergi spa.. Emir masa tu sibuk mandi jacuzzi dia. Spa dekat sini bukak sampai pukul 1 pagi, lepas tu harga nya murah ya ampun.. So hubby bagi subsidy ambik full body massage with oil.

Cuma dekat sini, hmm.. orang yang jage spa tu memang dari Mainland China. cakap Melayu tak tau, orang putih pun tak tau.. I have to stress to them that I nak orang perempuan urut i. lepas tu tempat tutup tu bukan pintu, setakat tutup pakai langsir , i tak setuju betul... Memang masa ni i agak bisinglah. Lepas tu pulak, i bayangkan oil tu campuran this and that ke, bau ala-ala Tanamera punya bau ke.. sekali bile tengok dia punye oil, sekali... Johnson & Johnson jeeeeeee..

and bile dah sejam, ngam ngam sejam, mase tu orang urut tu tengah urut kepala i, baru start je pun, so bile sejam, terus tinggal i hanging macam tu.. siap cakap "1 hour done"..

Haha yes yes im complaining :p


The next day pulak, since kami duduk sehari je, pagi-pagi sibuk pergi breakfast lepas tu mak dengan anak sibuk nak menyibuk dalam pool area pagi-pagi. Papa? itu mat cool. Relaks je dalam bilik, orang dah  nak habis mandi baru nak turun sebab nak suruh i kemas untuk checkout..

Lepas checkout, saje jalan-jalan tengok ape ada and Emir was excited to try this - Flying fox. 

Mule-mule pakcik ni naik cool jer. Sempat la i ambik video sikit.. 




 Emir mempunyai latarbelakang gayat. :D Masa dia naik separuh tangga tu mulut dia dah bising "i dont think i can do this" tapi i still pakse dia naik jugak..

Sekali masa nak berflying fox tu...... oh maiiiiii, dia buat drama dekat atas.. Sebab dia dah menjerit-jerit, melalak-lalak kat atas tu, i pun memang dah lupe la nak ambik gambar ke ape. 

Oh yes, dia melalak-lalak.. last last i cakap dengan guide tu suruh tolak je Emir (i know what a mum haha).. Once dia melayang, terus senyap and terus like "weeee hoooooo"

Serious drama.. lepas dah habis tu, mintak satu round lagi.. haihh... thats why, budak kecik ni sometimes parents need to force them, else they wont experience. Experience will teach them something new.. and im sure Emir will treasure this moment too.. 



Itulah cerita short vacation kami.

Sekian

Dugro.. Dugrostar.. Raising me up, I've come so far

Dugro dugro star, raising me up, i've come so far, Dugro Dugro Star, i can be so much more, I'm the shining stars.. 

This song really haunting me as Emir and I keep singing morning, night and in between.

Anyway last month we were delighted to be invited as guest blogger for the soft launch of Dugrostar at Kidzania. The show started at 6++ and i managed to rush from KLCC to here.. :) -- talking about precision, guess sometimes i'm the champion :p

Every kid had a chance to get a star make over which of cos was a big no-non for the boys. But lucky for Ibu Emir as Emir was one of the first few kids at the frontline, he didn't have the choice and didn't realize that many boys refused (talking about screaming, crying) to put on make up. Emir dia dah masuk tak boleh kate apelah..

But the girls - they had so much fun (feeling-feeling princess tau).. How i wish one day i have a daughter.. insyaAllah.. 

So, right after he had his makeover, Emir was instructed to pose for the camera and yes, with this over-sized Dato' M Daud Kilau inspired :) (oklah Michael Jackson).. Thereafter, the organizer brought Emir inside the theater where he had to practise dancing. They said the parents are not allowed and I was so obedient to  follow the rules. Not that I know, the parents ok je keluar masuk and I missed to watch Emir practising his dancesteps. 

When he came out from the theater, the first thing he said

"i wish you were inside there to watch me"


The event started with a short speech by Ms. Monique Suryokusumo, the Marketing Director of Danone Dumex.

Dugrostar is the biggest talent campaign nationwide specially brought to you by Dugro. It's a series of talent participation showcasing children aged 3-10  and it celebrates well-rounded talents and  featuring National promotions with irresistible collectible premiums.


Then, they were experts to talk about child's creativity and development.

From left to right were 
Mr Zaid Mohamad, Bestselling Author, Columnist, Certified Parental Coach and CEO of Smartparents.com.my 
Mr Az’farr Baginda, Principal of Blubricks and Judge for Dugrostar™, 
Ms Elaine Yong, Lecturer, Department of Psychology, Sunway University
Ms Ruth Liew, Director of Malaysian Child Resource Institute and Child Developmentalist
Ms Monique Suryokusumo, Marketing Director of Danone Dumex Malaysia,
PIC Dugrostar.


Lepas tu, this is where the parents get excited.. mana taknyer all kids performed!

Again after the performance, Emir cakap "I want to be at the front" it's ok Emir, ibu nampak je



and yes, i'm proud to see him, he is very dedicated to memorize the dance steps at the very short period. I think he inherits from his father, kalau buat satu bende, buat betul-betul.


All of us together with the parents and the experts.

The best about my *w*o*r*k - Sabah trip

The moment the coordinator booked our calendar, i honestly became so excited. First thing most, though my department is super busy, very accounting firm oriented but one thing here that i treasure the most is the relationship among the colleagues. We, i might say, a bunch of "young kids" who will easily forget about work, age and position once we went out for outing / tea*m b*uilding and we know how to enjoy ourselves. 

There you go, this year, Kota Kinabalu is our destination for out get together a.k.a tea*m b*uilding. So as usual, this post is quite long outstanding but still, it is worth for this event to have a fair share in this space :)


This year, the team is divided into two airlines, as a precaution, in case something "wrong" with one flight, other team will continue to run the department.. Ok sounds so bad, but thinking about the logic behind this.. ade betulnya.. 


So, my flight was Malindo and i have to be at KLCC as early as 430 am as our flight departed at 8am ++.  My first time visiting KLIA 2 and yes, im quite impressed with the airport -- fact: it is so easy to beat LCCT right :p





wefie before masuk flight. Note tangan belakang is not middle hand yer, 10 kali tuan punya badan pesan.. itu ticket kapai terbang..



This is our hotel for 3 days two nights. seronok betul orang hotel tu terima kami.. Rase macam welcome sungguh.. 

Right after we checked in to our hotel, the organizer has arranged for us to visit Mari-Mari Cultural Village. 

Mari Mari Cultural Village tour is located deep in the countryside about 25 minutes away from the modern and developing Kota Kinabalu city. The village operates as a museum that preserves Borneo ethnic culture. It aims to share the knowledge, history, culture, and tradition of Borneo with you so that it is not forgotten.


Generally, quite interesting to see different cultures in Malaysia and i was so happy to strike off one of my wishlish which was - tryouts Kadazan's dance. Yesza, i volunteered to be a "clown" on the stage and spontaneously dragged one of my colleague to dance with me. Yes, she is mad :p To be honest, i was too shy, being a fat lady somehow, i cant deny, it lowered my self esteem and this is one of it.. takut jatuh gedebuk macam  buah nangka busuk but I took the risk, thicken my face and went for the dance group tryout. and wah-lah with small steps.. it quite easy so long you understand the steps.

But unfortunately, there is no picture of me on the stage :(


Later that night, we had our so called "annual dinner" and the theme for this year is Hawaiian.

Last year, we had our pirates theme party and the organizer had allocated some budgets to reward those who really put an effort to dress up like a pirate. And there you go, my group won the best costumes (for groups). But this year, the organizer cancelled this kind of reward as they think it is unfair for those who don’t have that “appetite” to dress up :p But hey, being us, takde reward pun we dressed up as a group but of cos, we make it simple as we can.

And this is my group “uniform” for that night. Tell ya, I hate wearing like this (tuck in), it really shows that I am currently wearing XXXL size, but yeah, at times, you have to feel confidence about yourself else you don’t enjoy what you do.  So pejam mata buat sajalah.


There were lot of activities that night and this is one of it.


That night ada banyak activities and this is one of it.

But the best activity - where we have to perform flash mob (the whole group) using macarena song.. Best babe though it was really tiring of Day 1 (remember we have to be at KLCC as early as  430 am)


The next day – ok ini I suke.. Island hopping but dekat je lah, Mamuntik and Manukan island, about 10 minutes from the jetty. Though the island is located near to the city, but the water is quite crystal clean, but yes, not as beautiful as Mabul – lah, but still acceptable and you know like “a city girl trying to escape and found paradise” – cam gitulah.. Of cos ade teambuilding activities but later, we managed to squeeze our time for  snorkeling. 


Me with Naz. Naz is a friend of mine sejak zaman audit firm. dari E**Y to D**el**oitte and now in the same department doing the same thing :) and when the picture was taken below, it was the day when she turned 3* years old.


Snorkeling .. buahaha.. guess what, that was the first time I know the correct way to wear the snorkeling mask. For the first 40 minutes, I was struggling to understand why I couldn’t breathe under the water unlike my colleagues yang relax aje, then only I realized I did it the wrong way. And there you go, I wasted 40 minutes not enjoying the moment when once I knew the concept, all my colleagues already swimming towards the shore. Frustrated jugaklah tapi sempat nampak ikan buntal.. how I wish, Emir is with me since he too loves water activities.


Bawah ni setting for our lunch buffet. by the beach.. berangan macam ada orang propose dekat sini haha


Later that night, we had our dinner at Nelayan Restaurant KK and yes.. the food were so yummylicious and I agree, if you refuse to experience bad dinner, please do visit Nelayan Restaurant and err.. of cos, there is a price to pay for quality food service :p. As a proof, there are  many foreigners rather than the locals.. so boleh tahu la kan :D 


And I tasted this.. not bad not bad.. but I only able to swallow at least 5..


The next day was the last day we were in KK and since my flight was scheduled at 5 ++ pm,  so yesza yesza, ada time nak shopping.. yours truly spent a lot. Yes, I mean a lot.. from pearls, to seafood, to kerepek, and I constantly reminded myself – “once a while” tho the damaged is quite “hurt”.

And I just got to know that KK has its own Hard Rock shop. A small cabin corner near the famous hotel (ok dah lupe name) as usual I only bought that classic Hard Rock magnet. 



But yes, honestly, this is the best t*ea*mbu*ild*ing trip ever! Light and easy..

Of cos the best part is this goodie bag :D not in the pictures are few iSetan vouchers  



gambar ni gambar Naz.. i punye color biru

Selamat Pengantin Baru Rafa & Zara

Alhamdulillah seorang lagi sepupu i selamat mendirikan rumah tangga dengan wanita pilihan hatinya.. Rafa & Zara. Sepupu i yang lebih kurang baya i tak ramai, jadi bile ada wedding macam ni memang akan ditunggu-tunggu. Rafa kire dalam adik beradik dia paling happening-lah, jadi ini antara wedding yang paling di-look forward. 

I lepas dapat tahu tarikh wedding Rafa memang terus ambik cuti sebab majlis dibuat di Gerik Perak. Khamis malam Jumaat, 29 Aug tu keluarga kecik i dah selamat tiba di Gerik (tengah malam pukul 12 lebih)..

Dipendekkan cerita, akad nikah dijalankan pada petang Jumaat di rumah pengantin perempuan yang kebetulan orang Gerik jugak. Paling unik dengan pasangan pengantin ni, dua-dua nya mempunyai tarikh birthday yang sama (tahun lain) jadi mustahil lah kalau sorang akan lupe birthday yang sorang lagi..

Ini antara barang hantaran, digubah khas oleh adik pengantin , auntie-auntie i jugak. Bunga buat sendiri tu.. 


Adik I mimi bersama dengan anak sepupu i yang baru berusia 3 bulan kot :) (anak Ani - Ilham).


dan inilah pengannti Rafa dengan anak i yang comot lagi comet.. 


Masa ni dah sampai ke rumah pengantin perempuan.. adik i Cik yah


Tak banyak gambar yang i ambik.. makin lame dah makin malas pulak nak ambik gambar. Laki i apatah lagi, bawak kamera pun dia dah malas. so ape yang ada je lah yer.. 

Alhamdulillah mempelai selamat diijabkabulkan dengan sekali lafaz. Yang ini gambar masa upacara batalkan air sembahyang. Rasa Rafa macam Ustaz Don pulak, lama betul dia baca ayat dekat bini dia masa ni :D


bila tengok banyak betul gambar Mimi ni dalam handphone i


Lepas akad nikah, apa lagi makan lah.. Dekat kampung, jadi rewang lah.. masakan pun sedap.. Gambar ni sebenarnya nak ambik gambar Emir yan semangat kusyuk tengah makan di nun hujung sana bersama dengan bapak i (atok Emir). Seronok pulak tengok Atok Emir layan Emir. and semua orang kagum sebab Emir makan pulut sampai 3 pinggan berlaukkan sambal ikan bilis. Tapi pulut dia memang terbaiklah.. lemak santan tu memang umpph..


Keesokkan hari nya majlis dekat rumah pengantin pengantin perempuan.. Tapi bile korek-korek i punye handphone tak de pulak gambar dekat rumah pengantin perempuan.. Takpe tunggu gambar dari official photographers lah.. 

Ok gambar dekat bawah ni gambar masa majlis dekat belah pengantin lelaki. Abang pengantin lelaki, wedding planner, memang cun la deko untuk majlis pengantin ni.. photo booth dia cantikkkkkkkk.. tapiiiiiii again bile i belek-belek balik, tarak gambar deko deko tu dekat phone i. Bile pikir balik baru teringat yang i malas nak pegang phone masa tu sebab sibuk dengan bende lain. 

Emir and the gang (basically his uncles) ditugaskan untuk jadi tukang pegang bunga manggar. Emir memang sangat suke balik Gerik ni sebab dapat jumpe kawan-kawan yang memang boleh buat geng. In fact derang dah gelarkan team derang as Bungga Manggar boys. Tengoklah walaupun berpeluh dengan panas terik but they are too excited. 


Akhirnya pengantin pun tiba jugak.. payung tu jahit sendiri ok.. the day before.. :) 


Ini gambar selekeh kami bertiga dengan pengantin. Sorrylah Emran muke macam bini tak jage :p and kiterang pun tak sedonondon kali ni.. 


Malam tu biasa tradisi kami akan adakan sesi renjis renjis sesama family. masa ni paling best adalah untuk tengok budak-budak renjis pengantin lah.. macam macam ragam.. seronok.. i ada ambik video, insyaAllah akan diupload dalam youtube i untuk tatapan keluarga.. 

Majlis dimulakan dengan bacaan doa oleh anak sedara i Zubir (Seriousss dia yang bacekan doa).. He is on his way to become a tahfiz, insyaAllah.. 


Yang pasti we have a blast during our stay in Gerik. 

Semoga Rafa & Zara bahagia dunia dan akhirat.

Tahniah dari
Abang Em, Kak Long dan Emir

on kertas UPSR bocor

I dah lame tak tulis, dah lama jugak tak ponder pendapat yang tak seberapa di public. Kadang-kadang, bila fikir balik, at this age, I rasa taknak untuk orang kenal, further I sendiri tak tau sape yang ikut I, even tho I bukanlah popular langsung. But somehow, I am ok to set all my social media networks as public considering few factors.. masuk contest and business related. Except Twitter, I still keep my twitter as private.

So, today, this morning, I went for my breakfast with my husband at my usual place nearby to my son’s school at Bukit Damansara. A lady, about my mum’s age was reading a newspaper and we started to chit-chat. Apa lagi kalau bukan hot topic untuk hari ni, orang kate sejarah untuk Malaysia, di mana peperiksaan penting UPSR  terpaksa ditunda dan terpaksa dibuat lagi sekali.

Pelik kan. Ok fine, memang tak peliklah, kalau ikutkan dari zaman I kecik dulu, soalan periksa memang selalu nyer ada rumuors kate bocor, tapi I rasa this year keadaan jadi tak terurus dan melampau. Orang yang tamak haloba nak dapat lebih dari yang sepatutnya dan secara tak langsung, “menghasut” mak ayah yang lain untuk ikut perangai tak jujurnya. Teruk sangatkah anak dia sampai terpaksa dia sebagai ibu bapa bersungguh-sungguh nak “tolong” anaknya.?

Semua orang ada soalan yang sama dalam kepala, siapakah dalang disebalik semua ini ? Jujur I sendiri tak tahu macam mana proses menyiapkan kertas peperiksaan yang besar.

Siapakah panel yang membuat keputusan untuk memutuskan soalan yang nak digunakan
siapakah orang yang tukang compile
siapa orang yang tukang print
 siapa orang yang tukang sort kan kertas soalan
siapa pulak orang yang tukang bungkus
siapa yang tukang transport kan kertas soalan

You see, there are so many layers in searching for the suspects.

MasyaAllah, ramai target guru. Cikgu. Cikgu ni tugasnya sangat murni, sangat telus, dari cikgu lah kite diajar apa tu integrity, but it is sad to learn that maybe teachers are abusing the word - integrity and tarnish the teachers’s reputation as a whole, cikgu lain tak pasal-pasal terkene tempiasnya.. definitely this is one serious irresponsible act. Why they are teaching the kids to cheat. After all they are just standard 6 students. Darjah 6, yang perempuan belum tentu dah datang period, yang laki I guarantee suara pun belum pecah lagi. In conclusion, they have a long way to go.. Gagal UPSR tak semestinya gagal selamanya.

Saya dibesarkan dengan 100% pendidikan di Malaysia. Saya tak berpeluang untuk belajar dan mendapat exposure belajar di negara luar. Tapi, itu tidak menghalang saya untuk mengetahui bagaimana keadaan system pendidikan di negara luar. Saya bukan nak compare dengan negara maju, tapi sekurang-kurangnya why don’t we learn something from them. Our education system is too exam oriented. Dari saya kecik sampai saya habis degree, kami diajar untuk score exam, dapat keje baik-baik bila habis belajar. Sepanjang zaman persekolahan saya, tak de cikgu yang galakkan I atau kawan-kawan I untuk teruskan bidang yang kami minat, contohnya macam “buat software untuk main game ke”, baking ke atau sewaktu dengannya. The school now is getting pressured by the Ministry to perform and work towards “Sekolah Berprestasi Tinggi” dan “Sekolah Berprestasi Tinggi” is getting pressured to maintain their position.

How I wish  the politicians do not involve in our education system. Honestly, they screw up everything. Kalau Menteri baru masuk, bermakna cikgu cikgu kene bersedia untuk dengar satu lagi pembahruan. Teachers are having a hard time to adapt to the new system. Kerja admin lagi banyak dari kerja mengajar, sudahnya, cikgu pun susah nak fokus kelebihan dan kekurangan pelajar sebab ada kertas kerja terpaksa disiapkan. Im telling you, berapa ramai suami / isteri kepada cikgu cikgu yang terpaksa turun padang bantu isteri isteri / suami-suami marking paper. Mesti ramai punya..

Sadly our politicians, they make changes, but they do not part of the changes, so they do not know what happen at the ground level. I think you all pun perasan, mereka bukannya ada anak yang belajar sampai habis di Malaysia. Kalau di Malaysia pun, ramai je politicians hantar anak dekat sekolah swasta, International school, and thereafter, hantar anak di luar negara. So, they as the parents did not suffer from Malaysia education system.

Walaupun I tak de anak darjah 6, tapi I kesian dengan anak-anak ni semua. They are just children. Disebabkan perkara ini berlaku, budak-budak yang jadi mangsa. Kalau anak yang tak kisah takpe, kalau mak bapak yang tak kisah tak pe, tapi kalau mak bapak yang kisah, anak yang kisah.. kesian babe. Aktiviti selepas UPSR terpaksa di bekukan lah nampaknye. Budak-budak makin panjang lah stressnyer. Cikgu makin tension lah gamaknya. Kalau Emir darjah 6, i mesti stress.. sangat.. sebab i consider myself as kiasu parent.. (yes i am)

Belum lagi kite masuk cost nak print balik kertas-kertas exam, lepas ni im sure cost akan meningkat tinggi , ntah-ntah sape yang terlibat dengan menggubal soalan ini kene kuarantin sampai lah hari exam. I know its just an assumption, but surely, the cost will be increased. Kesian duit taxpayer L

Walau ape pun, its all said and done. 30 September is the final day. Harap adik-adik semua bertabah lah ya. Ini baru satu “kerja orang yang kite harapkan” yang banyak rakyat persoalkan, banyak lagi  yang menjadi tanda tanya, not only in education, banyak lagi dik. Once you learn about Malaysia, rasa kasihan tu akan cepat wujud. Kesian Malaysia.. Kesian rakyat marhain.


Kesian budak UPSR.

7D Special Screening at Mad About Coco, Publika

As a young girl (during my childhood years), I bet for once, we love and dream to be a princess. One of the fairytale that I wanted to be HER is Snow White (i know she is not a princess from the beginning). Snow White is a kind and gentle princess comes with beauty and white skin and being loved by all especially the dwarfs.

Inspired by Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs, the 7D is an American animated television series produced by Disney Television Animation. A brand new funny animated television series which will take you and your family to the world of Jollywood, featuring the Seven Dwarfs from Snow White, with characters redesigned by the Noah Z.Jones ("Fish Hooks")- Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Dopey, Grumpy and Doc.

Both the Glooms who attempt with much comedic mayhem scenes along the way wish to take over the kingdom by stealing the magical jewels in the 7D's mine. Of course the little brave heroes would not allow this to happen, so check out how they protect their mine and kingdom from the evil tricks.


Stay tune to
 Disney Channel to embark the fun, energetic and adventurous journey with The 
7D.

The 
7D will premiere on Sunday,September 7 at 11am on Disney Channel (Astro Channel 615)



Emir is lucky to be invited as first few kids for the special Screening of 7D at Mad About Coco, Publika together with the bunch of Disney fans. 


In the premiere episode, “The Littlest Giants/Gnome Alone”, it’s up to the 7D to save the kingdom from a giant who is terrorizing Jollywood and Sleepy goes solo to stop the Glooms from stealing the Royal Ruby when the 7D go on vacation without Sleepy.

In addition to Osbourne, the 7D stars the voices of Emmy-nominated Jess Harnell (Disney Junior's "Sofia the First" and "Doc McStuffins") as Grim Gloom, Leigh-Allyn Baker (Disney Channel's "Good Luck Charlie") as Queen Delightful, Disney legend Bill Farmer (the voice of Goofy) as Doc, Emmy winner Maurice LaMarche ("Pinky and the Brain") as Grumpy, Emmy nominee Kevin Michael Richardson (Disney XD's "Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja") as Happy, Dee Bradley Baker ("Phineas and Ferb") as Dopey, Scott Menville ("Teen Titans") as Sneezy, Stephen Stanton (Disney Junior's "Doc McStuffins") as Sleepy, Billy West ("Ren & Stimpy") as Bashful and Paul Rugg ("Animaniacs") as Lord Starchbottom.


The children are lucky enough to be in the front row watching the 7D and yes, the laughter not only came from the children but the parents. 

After the show, the guests are served with yummylicious brunch.. and the best part was



free flow of hot Chocolates, and Emir being a hot drink fan, he was so overwhelmed with his Hot Chocolates and yes, 3 cawan lagi.. 





Me with the baju kurung because right after the event, I had to attend few non-stop open houses.. and afraid not, I think i followed the Disney color theme :)
