Manners of Visiting the Sick

When to visit a sick friend yesterday and some relatives few months ago. It's good to pay a visit to sick people to show you concern and care about them. But, there are a few manners we have to keep. Here is a few tips:

  • Say salam and ask the condition.
  • Voice your concern.
  • Pray for the health.
  • Bring token i.e. fruit basket or money. (To lessen the burden)
  • Avoid big group visit. (To respect the privacy)
  • Avoid long chat. (Understand sick people need to rest)

Hope this help. Our present (visit) is appreciated enough, sick people do not need unnecessary talk.

Babywearing Walk

Dhia is walking! She got her feet on 18th August 2011. That was 3 days before her 13th month birthday. We were very happy. Now, she got new talent. Believe it or not!

That's my little teddy-wearer. So, you've got talent?

BSB - MIB Short Trip

Last July we had a short trip to Brunei Darussalam (BSB) which practice 'Melayu Islam Beraja' (MIB). We drove our Mini Cooper aka Kelisa to Brunei via vehicle ferry. Afraid to bring the Myvi though as BSB's government does not permit tinted vehicle in Brunei - will be instructed to strip the tinted on the spot if you were to be spotted. It takes one hour from Labuan ferry terminal to reach Muara ferry terminal. A trip each day only. Sharing a few tips:

Vehicle: RM120 / BND50 (be it compact, saloon or 4WD)
Driver: Free
Adult: RM30 / BND15
Kids: RM15 / BND8
Infant: Free

*You are not allowed to buy through & fro ticket. Must buy the return ticket at Brunei terminal.

What you need to bring:
1. Valid Passport (International or Brunei Limited)
2. Ferry Ticket
3. Vehicle Declaration Card
4. Cash in BND (hehehehe)
5. Credit Card (just in case)

What you need to know:
1. Brunei Limited passport is only RM50 for 5 years
2. No tinted car in Brunei
3. Less or no motorcyclist
4. Do not bring the 'beras wangi' out
5. Foods are expensive

Backdated Updates on Dhia

We had a simple but colourful celebration for Dhia on her 1st birthday. Hope it will be one memorable event for us. Thanks for all family members & friends who joined the celebration and thanks for the gifts too. Dhia do appreciate those, I can see from her face.

A quick update for the 12th month:-
  • Yet to walk
  • Eats rice
  • Mumbling much
  • Love to pose for camera

These are just some addition to previous milestone.
