Truth must be told - I never knew that KL has beautiful tourism spot. I have been to lake garden yearsssssss ago. But never knew we have the butterfly park, the bird park and the planetarium to name a few which are just super duper close by.

I've always told myself that if any of my international friends ever come to visit me and asked me what and where to visit or even the best place to have a taste of Malaysia, I would totally and utterly fail. Yes, I guess now is the time for me to either:
  1. ... read travel magazines or browse the net OR
  2. ... watch jalan-jalan cari mkn or any travelling programmes on the tele OR
  3. ... make Yaby bring us jalan-jalan every fortnight for this whole year!
So yesterday, Yaby decided to bring us (yes, the 'us' is referring to Jia, Ibrahim and myself) to the buterfly park. We (yes, the 'we' is referring to Jia, Ibrahim and myself) enjoyed it a lot!

While we were at the park, Jia sang the Rama-rama song which she learned from school. At the end of the song, its lyric was "tapi sayang hidup tak lama". Indeed it's true, why did Allah make such beautiful and harmless creature live for a very short period of time? When I google-d the topic, I found many people have been talking about it. It was fascinating to read the many comments. From the search I found out that there is one moth in the artic that took 7-14 years for its catterpillar to reach a full growth but live only for a few days as a full grown moth. As a muslims, we have been told repeatedly in the Qur'an that in every creation of the heavens and the earth and everything in between are signs for people who understand. May Allah grant us all the understanding and guide us all to the straight path. 

By the end of our little tour, Ibrahim still shoo-ing away all those lively butterflies that came close to him.  In the small gallery before the exit, Ibrahim and Jia would go "EEEEeeeEEeee" while pointing to the many different preserved insects arranged neatly in the frames. Funny enough, though Ibrahim was trying real hard to get rid of the fluttering butterflies, he seemed to be all good with the dead butterfly to the extent asking me to lift him up ("up mi-mi") to get a closer look at the various butterflies. Hehehehe..

That's the end of my report for Taman Rama-Rama. Until our next tour! - insyaAllah

Quick Post!

Last night, while putting Ibrahim and Jia to sleep, Jia gave out a BIG yawn. Good thing she was covering her mouth too. Once done, she looked at me and asked, "mi-mi, why do we have to yawn and yawn?". Before I could finish answering her question, Jia open her mouth again. This time telling me this, "But mi-mi, if we yawn and yawn, the naughty syaitan will get into our body?... Then how?"
