But the little info that I know about the event excites me enough. Enough to let me let Luqman and Hajar skip their tahfiz class. It was in Urban Village, Bangsar. And we couldn't find the place. Went up and down Jalan Maarof & Lorong Maarof few times until we gave up. I guess we ain't yuppy and hip enough to know every nook and cranny of Bangsar.
Then Mr O decided to go to IKEA.
Mr O; Let's go to IKEA...yeayyyy!!
Me; Ugghh...that sucksss!! (actually I was referring to getting lost and missing the documentary screening)
Medina; Ummiiiiii......don't say it sucks. IKEA doesn't suck. (BTW, is this grammatically correct anyway??) If u say it sucks, then Allah will make it sucks for u.
Hajar; Oh Ina...sometimes certain people just have different feeling. Like I think durian sucks, but u don't think so.
Medina; Kakak Hajar, NOOOO. U cannot say it sucks. If u say so, then it will really sucks.
OK...Master Yoda has spoken. Anyway that's how we ended up in IKEA. And I made Mr O detour to Edutool Discovery Centre in Persiaran Surian. I got to know about the place from one of the homeschooler. Ordered few stuffs online few days ago, but had not got any reply from them. So I thought maybe we just drop by and check it out since we were in the vicinity. I was very lucky. They were closed because the owner had some stuffs to do. But they happened to be around when I dropped by and she let me in just for a while. Luckily it was just for a while. Coz if I was there longer I probably go bonkus. There are soooo many great stuffs there.
Did u watch Mr Magorium's Wonder Emporium?? Well, that's exactly how I felt ;-)
So these were some of the loots...teeeheeeeee...PAID loots...most of these items were on sales okay!!! ;-)
I bought a few more other stuffs. But I thought they were so worth it. Don't u think so?? ;-) Luckily we were in a rush. So Mr O didn't really have time to have a look at it coz I went up to the shop without him. Then we went to IKEA to kill some time coz we wanted to go to a lecture at Section 16 in the afternoon. And I went to Eduthink in The Curve. Erkkk....moving out sale??? Aisehhh...how to resist?? Maybe just go look see look see....
Inflatable globe. $19.90
3D anatomy of the gut. Plus some quiz cards.
And Luqman think this building set will be very good for Medina. Some LEGO like thingy with remote control.
And no surprise who had his hands on the thing first. And can't stop playing. So much of thinking for the little sister huh???!!
But it's pretty cool. A bit robotic. Can move. And can light up too!! ;-)
Kids are very happy with the loot. Mr O was rolling eyes. I pretend not to notice...hahahaha. Hopefully the kids' excitement will persist. Not just for few days. Persist and translate to love to learn and experiment. Hopefully ;-)
The one who get inspired to paint coz they just got new apron. $12.90 each ;-)After the shopping spree, which is of course are all for the sake of education ;-) we adjourned to a house in Section 16 for a lecture organized by YMP on Misconceptions in Islam amongst Muslim by Bro. Shakirit.
It was a good day. Alhamdulillah. Tomorrow we'll just chill. And play with the new stuffs ;-)
