Friday (14.11.08) - Suatu Petang Di Atas Bumbung...

As Friday is a holiday, we always think of a way to make the kids happy. This time, we took them up to the rooftop of our apartment building Al Attar Escala. See...there are lots of exciting family activities that we can do kat atas bumbung ni...


The swimming pool has always been Along, Ain and Apit's favourite place. Since this place we're staying is situated by the seaside and near Port Rashid, it's cold and breezy especially kat atas bumbung ni. No more scorching hot sun of Dubai as it is the beginning of winter. Rasa macam kat Cameron Highlands pula...syoknya. But the water in the pool is very cold that we couldn't dare to dip ourselves in it. So, we just spent the time in the jacuzzi since the water is slightly warm. Patut la mat salleh-mat salleh kat situ pun sunbathing je.



That was not the only activity. We brought Along, Ain and Apit to another favourite place of theirs, the children's playground nearby. During summer, it was very dusty in the playground. That's why we seldom bring them here. But today it was just nice. So, the three As apa lagi...


Pastu, pegi favourite place Ayah pula he he. Ayah seldom comes here as he is always busy at work or outstation. Tapi sesekali dah berada kat sini, bukan aje Ayah yang seronok main pool, Apit pun sibuk nak main sama walaupun batang pool tu lebih panjang dari dia hi hi...cute je. 8 has always been my lucky number (kebetulan...) and 9 is hubby's favourite number.


Before we 'climbed down', hubby snapped a few photos from the rooftop. Selalu melihat ke atas, sekali sekala seronok gak melihat ke bawah...Interesting, isn't it?


That night, again we climbed up to the rooftop to savour the night view from the top of Al Attar Escala. Except for hubby (who has a lot of hidden fat inside he he), the kids and me had to put on a sweater. It feels like at night in Cameron Highlands. Sangat nyaman dan mententeramkan berada di atas bumbung ni pada waktu malam especially when it is in early winter. Eh eh Uncle Amin dan Auntie Laila pun ada la, diorang selalu naik kat atas bumbung ni waktu malam rupanya...romantik gitu berdua-duaan.

We've made up our mind that we are going to stay here until hubby finishes his contract in another one and a half or two years' time. We have no reason to move out of this place as we like it here. We can have our family recreation without having to spend a lot of money. Most important of all, our kids are happy here.

p/s - Syukur Alhamdulillah...walaupun Ibu Ayah belum dapat nak bawa Along, Ain dan Apit pegi Burj Al Arab untuk ambil gambar tunjuk-tunjuk waktu malam atau pegi makan ikan bakar kat Jumeirah waktu malam tapi Alhamdulillah Along, Ain dan Apit happy. Harap Along, Ain dan Apit faham. Kita belum seswai pegi tempat-tempat macam tu. Sebab kita takda keta (lagi).

Nanti Kalu aunti wiz gi sana, kita org tido atas bumbung je leh tak. We'll camp there. Senang skit aunty ziela tak yah nak prepare room or toilet. Coz nak mandi boleh rendam kat swimming pool he he he.

Memang best kat atas bumbung tu especially dah dekat winter ni kan. Used to plan nak buat makan-makan kat atas tu and invite you ols but unfortunately the place is strictly for tenants only. Takpa kita share gambar je la ya. ;)

Very good idea Wiz! You ni memang kreatif la, I pun tak tepikir nak camping kat atas tu. Ok bila nak datang tu?? Setakat you boleh seludup je masuk kat that place because kita kan look a lot like sisters he he.
