Critter Land

Critter Land is a multi-level, state-of-the-art kid's jungle gym featuring a multitude of specially designed interactive equipment for children. Located at Heritage Village, opposite The Mines.

What do they have?

The Lava Dome - where kids can erupt a volcano of sponge balls --> Masa kitaorg pergi, Out of Service. Gaya macam dah lama je out of service.
Slippery Slides - 3-storey slides made for racing, 3 at a time
Sponge Drop - flying fox and rope swings

RM15 per entry on weekday
RM22 per entry on Public Holiday / School Holiday
Adult FREE.

Basically, memang enjoy la pergi ke play gym ni. Especially kids, toddler macam Amir mungkin tak pandai nak appreciate kesemua permainan. Tapi ada jugak yang tak best pasal tempat ni:

1) Staff yang kurang friendly
Last two weeks, kami bertiga dah sampai ke sini. My SIL yang informed about this place. Bila tengok dari luar, permainan memang banyak dan tempat besar. Tapi memikirkan rate yang sedikit mahal, entah berapa lama je Amir tahan main kat dalam tu, so kitaorg cancel masuk. Before leaving, bertanya soalan kepada 2-3 staff yang ada kat kaunter. Sorang je berusaha jawab itu pun mcm tak nak layan, yang lain sibuk tengok komputer - Facebook lah apa lagi. Dengan bukak lagu dekat handphone nya. Maka confirm lah kami malas nak masuk.

2) Toilet adalah kotor.
Tapi this place claimed to be so hygiene, siap kene pakai stocking kalau nak masuk kat play gym area. Tapi bila I masuk toilet, dengan kotornya.. Tisu penuh dalam toilet bowl. Tisu kat tempat tisu yang kosong. And again, staff nya sibuk 'iron' rambut dalam toilet, bukak lagu kuat2. Serious, this place is out of my list.

But overall, memang enjoy. Mungkin sebab pergi ramai-ramai. Plus tak ramai orang lain so tempat itu kami yang punya.

Ceritanya, my eldest sis in law bersungguh ajak pergi. Especially, her son, Adam memang suka datang sini. Well, walaupun agak frust masa pergi ke Critter Land ni minggu lepas, we just take it as family time.

All in one 'bus'! Time ni je masing-masing dah start excited

We were lucky enough, the place was not crowded. Memang tak ramai orang compare to our first visit. At least, kanak-kanak kecil yang bertiga tu boleh enjoy themselves.

Rupa-rupanya, sebab tak ramai orang.. kanak-kanak besar pun boleh enjoy themselves!

Trampolines. Fuh, seronok betul kami semua melompat-lompat atas bendalah ni.

Amir tak berapa kisah sangat permainan lain Kecuali BALL. 

Ada tempat untuk berehat..

Dan tempat untuk berparty.

Dan puas main, kami berjalan-jalan dekat lake..

Fun-filled evening!

Amir punya energy sampai ke malam, lepas main dia tak tidur langsung. Emak dia yang pancit sebab melompat-lompat, terbongkok-bongkok kejo Amir.

A Little Person Part II

Lepas je mommy record development Amir di entry yang lepas, last week.. Bertambah-tambah pulak lagi karenah Amir. Memaksa mommy menulis entry Part II ini.. *wink*

Keesokkan harinya mommy dapati Amir dah pandai

korek hidung..

Selain itu, Amir tau cotton bud itu untuk mengorek telinga, juga Amir tau cara nak pakai deodorant dekat underarm. Semua hasil tunjuk ajar baba.

Amir makin banyak membebel.. "bhutha.. bhuta.. bhutha.. bubu.. " Only God knows what..

Amir dah tau cakap 'tak nak' dan memang langsung tak nak, tak boleh kompromi.

Sekarang Amir sepak bola bukan main kuat lagi, berdentam-dentum kene dinding and barang-barang rumah.

Dah pandai tiup recorder, walaupun kadang-kadang terdengar suara dia keluar sekali. Nafas aje la keluarkan..

Dan, kalau dibiarkan macam ni....

Terasa aman masa mommy and baba candle-light dinner...

Amir makin enjoy copycat orang.. sampaikan bila baba borak2 dengan kawan, Amir siap ikut gaya kawan baba lagi.. Aiyo. 

Kalau berdiri tu bukan main eksyen lagi..

Dan yang paling menghiburkan hati mommy ialah...

Berjaya berjalan-jalan keliling bilik, dari dapur masuk ke bilik..

This is what we called Walking! Jyeah!!

A Little Person

Amir has turned 14 months old. He yet to walk on his own steadily while other toddlers, especially his cousins started walking when they were 10 months young or later at 1 year of age. Frankly speaking, I was a bit gloomy in that sense. Especially when we meet toddler younger or at his age, they are already running around. And when we spoke to their parents ‘Oh, she’s started walking at 9 months’. Hehe.

Well, I do know toddler growth is different from one to another. Furthermore, it’s not that my sonny cannot walk at all but he chooses to start walking later than his parent’s expectation. At first we thought he will start walking at 12 months, it didn’t happened so we extend to 14 months. It’s still not happening, maka kita bagi masa sampai setahun setengah ;p

Nevertheless I can see he enjoys walking especially he is so into kicking ball these days. But, he wants to hold mommy’s fingers for support! He grips my finger so tightly, rasa macam nak patah. Because he knows if he hold loosely, my fingers will slip away from his ;p Mommy always tries to step aside to let him walk on his own. He can walk, of course. He has taken many small steps since last few weeks. But once he fell off, he will cry for 911, someone MUST come rescue and hold him. He’s now too complaisant with someone else hold him while walking and kicking around. One funny thing, everytime when he with his own initiative to try walking.. he will do it sambil senyum kambing + gelabah looking at people surround him. I was like, ‘Helloo.. it’s normal for you to walk, nak malu-malu kucing buat apa’ Hehehe. Amir si busuk masam mommy. But you’re such a cutie at that moment.

Despite of the delay of crawling (Amir started crawling when he nearly turned 1) and walking, I honestly grateful on his brain development.
Amir likes to watch TV and he knows to request when he wanna watch his favorite VCD, Wheels on the bus. We bought him many VCD from Baby Enstein collection. But he likes this VCD that I borrowed from my company’s library. That VCD is quiet an old one, I saw the year was 2001. They claimed that they’re the world’s first 3D animated musical for children. Can you imagine how old is that? Haha. The picture is a little bit funny not like nowadays cartoon; they look so real and nicer. But the story is very interesting though especially the characters. Featuring Beep the Bus and his friends Bass, Sax, Trombone and Drum, not forgetting Daisy the dog. Join them in their adventures in Sing Song City, where almost everyone and everything is magically musical. - dah macam iklan.

In fact, Ami and I were sitting still and enjoying the story as well. At the beginning lah, after months and Amir keeps asking us almost daily to play the VCD once we reached home, there it comes the ‘arghhh’ moment. Last night, suruh pasang VCD masa minit-minit terakhir game MAS vs IND, mana boleh! Last-last tertidur dia, sian..
The best part is, ada subtitle in English so Ami and I will sing along with them. Mesti Amir ingat terornya mak bapak aku nyanyi, hafal semua lagu. But the VCD really helps to make Amir be still and sometimes sampai tertidur dia tengok cite tu.

Kusyuk tengok TV.

Recently we, oh no his dad again bought new VCD collection from Brainy Baby. He said 'ni bagus ni untuk left brain and right brain bla bla bla bla' Ok, saya pecaya judgment awak, pergi aje lah ke kaunter. Starting from there on, dia asyik suruh pasang VCD tu pulak. Menambahkan collection VCD untuk di paksa pasang oleh Amir.

Amir also enjoys playing with flash cards. We started playing with him since 4-5 months if I’m not mistaken. Now he can recognize the images on the card and the real object. Like dog, cat, book and many others. One day, he took one of the flash cards and put at his ear. I’m quite surprised and check what picture on the card. Oh, it’s a telephone! Credit to his baba always play the cards with him. Kalau dengan mommy, duduk melangok je depan TV ;p Last few days, again when mommy duduk melangok depan TV, Amir was playing with his flash cards and suddenly he went to the couch and tepuk-tepuk sofa tu. Mommy yang terkejut “Apa citer?”, oh rupanya he saw card with couch picture on it  :) Again, baba dia punya kerja ngajor ‘couch..’ sambil tepuk-tepuk sofa.

Flash card lesson at 7 months old

From day one, I knew that Amir was a little copycat. At 8-9 months he was mimicking his uncle, sapu minyak rambut – at first he observed, then he right away mimicking – gosok-gosok tangan and sapu dekat kepala (yang tak berapa nak ada rambut masa tu). And these days, he enjoys copying more of our actions – sneezing, coughing (sampai dia betul-betul batuk, muka merah), laughing (the evil laugh: Muahahaha), reading book, reciting doa makan – tapi entah bahasa apa dia guna. You know what, he imitates most of what his father doing, I think Amir worships him :)

Tengah ejek siapa tergelak ni sambil tutup-tutup mulut. Pleeasee lah!
Amir is friendly too, with other kids but not adults. Especially if he saw big boys who can do most of running around thingy. Mula lah dia nak join but…. ‘mommy, remember to hold my hands okay? I want to start running’
Jadilah mommy the biggest boy ever dalam crowd tu. Many times he approached 5-6 years old boys, just because they wore baju Upin Ipin atau Sponge Bob. ‘Bonge Bob’ katanya. Nak sebut Upin Ipin susah takde huruf ‘b’. Hehehe.

Kemain lagi dia yeeee..

But he still has anxiety to adults. Noone can carry him other than his parents. Well, susah hati jugak sebab his grandparents always wanted to play with him. Once they touched him, he started to shriek. Aiyoo. Mama Tok dah sound ‘Dah setahun Mama Tok mengurat Amir, belum dapat-dapat lagi’

Kemain lagi dia menangis, macam lah kena cubit..

Atok put head on his lap, cubaan melepaskan diri

On the bright side, we know that he is so attached to us.

... especially mommy! Weee..!
