My Last Post From Jakarta

One more day to go and Gwen and I will be moving back to KL for good. So, this will be my last posting from Jakarta and a rojak one which also include all my back-dated posts. :P

Somehow I'm not feeling excited about moving back to KL...well the thought of Hubby staying on here in Jakarta makes me not so looking forward to this coming Friday. Hubby is taking 2 weeks annual leave and we have already planned this earlier so that he would be around when Gwen starts school in Jan next year.

At least Papa get to send Gwen to her new school (like he used to do in Jakarta) for a week and spend some quality time with us. :(

Sorry for getting emo here, ok let's move on...

Gwen as a model?

Remember I blogged about Kidzania? Here's a continuation of one of the "jobs" Gwen held in Kidzania.

LOL...Gwen was given a brief lesson on modelling.

Gwen was dressed in pretty outfits and had a make-over. Only the top belonged to Gwen.

Gwen was having a photo-shoot. ^_^

Yes, there was a big stage for her to do her catwalk too! I tell you, Gwen is not born to be a model..her walk is quite awkward (maybe not enough practice and everything happened too fast). Only us and a couple were there in the audience.

We bought 2 photos of Gwen taken during the photo-shoot. This was one of the photos. I love the skirt!

Gwen Played Golf For The First Time

My Hubby has taken up golf ever since he landed himself in Jakarta. The main reason for this was he always gets invited to play golf for free so that's how it all started. Unlike Malaysia, it's not necessary to be a 'member' to enjoy golf here in Indon.

Papa bought Gwen a golf club and he took Gwen and I to the driving range one day.

Not bad...she got gaya here..haha.

It was not easy for her to hit the ball. Eventually she gets the hang of it. Don't think she will have this chance when she is back in KL. It was a good experience.

Papa and Mama's surprise from the Hotel

It was Hubs and my birthday. Our hotel management sent us this on our birthday. This year, no flowers for me..hehe.

Dinosaurs Lover

If there's dinosaur, for sure you will be seeing Gwen there..LOL.

A T-Rex made of rattan at Pacific Mall.

Gwen requested a photo with a dinosaur stuffed toy in Toys Kingdom.

Papa's Thai friend bought Gwen 3 dinosaurs stuffed toys from Surabaya. Papa was in Surabaya for almost a week due to work.

Our Outings

We always end up in Grand Indonesia during our weekends outing. Gwen was begging us to bring her to Carnival (an amusement park).

Finally, her wish came true. :)

Once a week we usually will bring Gwen to Fun World without fail. Her fave game is Animal Kaiser.

She likes this game because she loves animals. -___-

We have collected lots of tickets at Fun world and we redeemed all this for Gwen.

Gwen's Animal Kaiser card collection.

Something New

Gwen got a 'souvenir' from her form teacher whose son celebrated his 3rd birthday at Gwen's former pre-school.

First time seeing such unique "party favours". A table with foldable stands.

Behind the table.

Learning Mandarin

Gwen had her first Mandarin test few weeks ago. She only had Mandarin lesson once a week. I spent a few days preparing her for her Mandarin test. I'm glad she was able to write all the Chinese characters by herself with the correct sequence of strokes.

She got 100% on her Mandarin test. It was a simple test. I thought the test required her to write those Chinese characters but only numbers instead.

This is a good start. she is giving some positive feedback in learning Mandarin. I can't wait to send her to Bao Bei once we are back in KL.

I tested her and she got all correct.

Wow, Gwen is really a big fan of dinosaurs. I wonder how you keep them and how you plan to bring them back to KL.
Btw, we use normal compact camera which can take high HD video.

ChloeRuoyi December 22, 2011 at 6:15 PM  

I know how you feel. Nobody looks forward to staying apart from their spouse. Is your hub going to stay on in Jkt for long?

Gwen's top matched the skirt very nicely in the model shoot. She looked so pretty! :)

prince n princess mum December 22, 2011 at 6:16 PM  

Welcome back!~

Merryn December 22, 2011 at 11:07 PM  

I love her skirt too!

It is five month since Ethan started BaoBei and he is already speaking the language. I'm still very happy with BaoBei and I believe you will too :)

I feel for you too on the part where Aaron will be in Jakarta and you and Gwen will be here, but stay strong okay? Hugs...

Welcome back, mummy Gwen~

Rose December 28, 2011 at 2:04 PM  

You moving home for good?? Welcome back! I am sure Gwen will get used to school over here. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Ann December 29, 2011 at 6:34 AM  

Oh...I know how you feel without hubby. Hope he doesn't have to stay in Indonesia for too many years. But you will adjust and absence does make the heart grow fonder!

At any rate, you will be in familiar ground and then you can give me updates about malls every week again! I missed that about you. hahahaha.....

Yee Ling December 29, 2011 at 3:25 PM  

Her skirt is so beautiful. I think he can be a great model the way she pose.

Anyway, welcome back and I am sure you will be getting busy when school reopens.

Oh, Gwen looks like a pro in playing golf. Her dad must be happy to see her playing the sport with him.

Wishing you the best in Malaysia!

Indo has been an action packed adventure for you and nice to experience all these adventures and wonderful to have kept the experiences alive in this blog...welcome back to KL. Hope to hear more from you soon:)
