Cara-cara letak attachment gambar guna "Mail" app Iphone

Ha.. ini adalah satu perkara yang saya tahu tanpa tak sengaja..selama ni kalau nak hantar gambar ke kawan-kawan guna email, saya akan ke "photos" dulu kemudian pilih gambar-gambar yang nak dihantar dan kemudian select e-mail.

Tapi... tahukah anda ada lagi satu cara? Dari "Mail" app sendiri, kita boleh attach gambar atau document dengan menggunakan Iphone atau Ipad kita?

Langkah 1: Buka "Mail" App dan tekan icon "New Message" seperti di gambar ini:

Langkah 2: tekan jari anda di tempat menulis mesej anda beberapa saat, seperti dalam gambar:

Langkah 3: Nanti akan keluar dialog di bawah ini, tekan butang segi tiga tu: 

Langkah 4: Nanti keluar "Insert Photo or Video" ah.. select yang tu..nanti dia akan bawa kita terus ke "Photos" app kita dan kita pilih lah apa kita nak.. kalau nak tambah lagi gambar.. buat sekali lagi langkah 2-4.

Aaah.. kalau nak attach dokumen pun boleh tekan butang segitiga tu lagi sekali akan keluar option "insert document" tapi itu hanya boleh dilakukan kalau anda sudah activate iCloud anda..

Senang kan? Selamat mencuba!

Kuantan With Kids : Why you should visit Batu Hitam Beach

Batu Hitam Beach @Kuantan

Mr Husband kind of like to go to Kuantan nowadays for short holidays with the kids. It's proximity with KL makes it a great weekend getaway with the kids if you don't mind the winding road of Karak Highway.

Our kids love the beach while husband loves the seafood :p

We have been to Teluk Chempedak Beach and Cherating Beach but on our last visit, we decided to drop by Batu Hitam Beach for fun. It was low tide then, exposing lots of sea snails and hermit crabs much to the amusement of the boys. Lil one had fun splashing his feet in the shallow pool of water :)

The weather was great that day, cloudy with lovely wind. Be warned that the sandy area near the carpark area has some sand flies, but once you walked nearer to the water, there wasn't any. So, my kids didn't play at the dry sandy area.

At the road side, you will see some stalls selling banana fritters, cendol and what nots but there are flies around the stalls so if you have an issue with that (like me) best to avoid eating there.

Pantai Batu Hitam @Kuantan

Kali ini kita singgah ke Pantai Batu Hitam,masa kami datang tu waktu air surut, best lah anak-anak suka dapat tengok bermacam jenis siput dan juga anak-anak ketam 

Pantai Batu Hitam @Kuantan

Pasir putih tu ada sand flies jadi saya larang anak-anak bermain sand castles, tapi pasir yang ada batu-batu hitam tu ok sangat.. anak-anak happy dengan hanya bermain air yang cetek.

Di kawasan tepi pantai juga ada beberapa gerai yang menjual pisang goreng,fishball,cendol dan lain lain. Tapi saya lihat terdapat banyak lalat, jadi tak berapa lalu nak makan di situ :)

Jom layan gambar-gambar di Pantai Batu Hitam...

Halal Restaurant in Melaka - Halia (Good For Kids)

So, kita orang gi Melaka dengan anak2 kecil.. nak cari tempat makan, mestilah yang tempat selesa sikit, ada kawasan yang selamat untuk anak2 berlari dan yang paling penting bila tenghari yang panas ni.. ada aircon! atau paling tidak tempat shaded dengan kipas yang power..

Search punya search nampak a few postings about Halia Restaurant, so I told my husband let's just try lah..tempat ni parking susah sikit, kita orang parking dekat dalam lagi, dekat dengan tempat cruise dia besar, tak panas, masa kita pergi tu tak ramai orang, so anak2 pun berlari ke sana ke mari. 

Burger @ Halia Inc ; Melaka

Husband order kopi dan burger (biasa2 je rasa dia). I order nasi goreng cina untuk anak kecil I (banyak minyak) chicken wings untuk my no1 (yang ni sedap)  dan salmon carbonara untuk my no 2. 
Nasi Goreng Cina @ Halia Inc ; Melaka

Makanan datang cepat juga, dan anak2 makan dengan selera. Pada I restaurant ni oklah, biasa2 je, tak lah sedap sangat dan tak lah teruk. Yang penting kena dengan tekak anak.

Melaka With Kids - The Shore Aquarium, Toy Museum, Puteri Beach

Melak with Kids - Puteri Beach @ Tg Kling

This is one overdue post.. we went to Melaka for a short getaway with the kids but it was peak period and a last minute decision so a lot of the popular hotels were already full. We decided to give Ramada Hotel a go even though normally we wouldn't choose this hotel. We were pleasantly surprised as the hotel was actually quite comfortable. Given that the exterior looked really old, the interior has been refurbished recently and the rooms were very modern. There is no bath tub in the room that we requested though.

Ramada Hotel Short Vacation

Room service was also good and breakfast in the morning was not too bad. It is also near a lot of convenience shop and there is a 24 hour mamak shop at the back. 

Ramada Hotel's Room Service

The Shore Mall is also just a few minutes drive away or you can even walk there if you have the stamina to brave Melaka's hot sun. 

Maybe next time we will try The Shore Hotel and Residence  :)

Speaking of which, since Melaka is so sunny, we opted for anything indoors and The Shore Oceanarium was first on the list. It is located inside The Shore Mall and I think there are a few other attractions at the mall as well. Hubby purchased tickets for both the aquarium and the toy museum.

The kids enjoyed the aquarium immensely, it is something like The Aquaria at KLCC but on a smaller scale. My kids love petting the baby sharks at the entrance and also feeding the turtles at the end. Strangely, they also found the 3D theatre very mesmerizing even though my husband and I were already begging them to move on 😂

Outside the Shore Oceanarium exit

Even if you don't go inside the aquarium, there are some kiddy rides just outside its exit.

Our next attraction was the Toy Museum, we went through this very quickly as there is really nothing much to see. The picture is the only nice part of the Museum in our opinion.. Can skip this attraction. 

Afterwards, there kids were hungry but there was nothing much on offer at the mall, so we went to Halia Restaurant instead. Then we headed out of Melaka town and went to Tg Kling for Puteri Beach. While reading up on beaches in Melaka, I was really tempted to visit Pulau Besar but then I stumbled upon one website that says that the Pulau isn't all it is made up to be and I think it will be unwise for me to bring the kids there 😬 Pantai Klebang is also not an option as I read that to reach the sand dunes you actually need to walk a distance and there is no beach to swim in too. So, Pantai Puteri it was.

The sand at Pantai Puteri

When we arrived, it was 5pm but hubby said it was still too hot, so we decided to eat at one of the numerous eateries there (there is also a stretch of night market stalls already operating then). We waited till 6pm and then we unleashed the kids 😂 the sand wasn't soft and white instead casuarina seeds lined the sand making it quite difficult to walk barefoot and playing sand castles. But the water was ok.. not that clear but some people were swimming. Later on, we realized there was also some oil in the water that wasn't quite visible but stuck on our legs and so difficult to remove afterwards. Ah well.. by then the kids had already had their fill of fun in the water 😄

Halal food Glasgow Central

So, hubby went for a summer course in Glasgow and we followed. I did not foresee doing much sightseeing on my own with the 3 boys while hubby went to class, so I settled for a place near shopping centres where I can pacify the kids with a trip to a toy store when they get restless 😂

Premier Suites Plus Glasgow was our choice since it is walking distance to Hamley's hahaha.. little did I know that it was a great choice because it is opposite George's Square where there are plenty of pigeons in the morning and the kids had fun feeding them everyday lol.. (this was before hubby told me that it might be illegal to feed the pigeons)

Feeding the pigeons @ George's Square - Glasgow 

Usually, after feeding the pigeons, my no 2 would ask for Subway across the street. The subway at 11 St Vincent Place is halal :)

While walking around the area, we also stumbled upon Oko (Japanese Cuisine @ 78 Queen Street) which zabihah states as having partial halal menu (all chicken halal except for gyoza and no pork served) but we didn't get to try it cos my kids don't favor Japanese cuisine.

So, on one of the days, we went to St Enoch Shopping Centre cos I was bribing the kids with Hamley's and then we saw a very small kids play area @ Euro 5 per 15 or 30 mins (I forgot) and the kids wanted to have a go. It was really small and I have no idea how and why but the kids were entertained for nearly an hour. Afterwards, my no 2 was hungry so I said let's just take a look at the food court and see if there is any halal option and Masya Allah, we saw one :

Di Maggio's Pizza with halal options @ St Enoch Shopping Centre

Halal Options @ Di Maggio's - St Enoch Shopping Centre

The guy at the counter informed me saying 2 types of pasta is halal and cheese pizza and pepperoni pizza but I can't take the chips as it's not fried with vegetable oil (something else but I can't seem to recall what they use)

We also tried Kebabish Grill @ the other side of River Clyde (323 Victoria Road) as I wanted to buy some meat as well to cook and that area has a lot of halal butchers. The food at Kebabish is really nice and the restaurant has a prayer place and also plays nasyeed on the entertainment system. As the kids ate, I wandered around the area to buy halal meat and I found a small butcher shop (can't recall the name) opposite Green Grocer (380 Victoria Road) the chicken is really fresh and the fruits and vegetables offered in Green Grocer is also quite ok.

Around Victoria Road, there are a lot of halal restaurants like:

1) Al Forno Ristorante (10 Torrisdale St)
2) Chicken Cottage (366 Victoria Road)
3) Star Coffee Patisserie (330 Victoria Road) for halal cakes

But we didn't try it cos we were around the area only to buy halal meat :)

On one of the days that we had to travel early in the morning and I didn't have time to cook breakfast and clean up, we bought breakfast from iCafe @ 72 Ingram St as it opens very early in the morning @ 7am :

Halal Food Menu @ iCafe - Ingram Street

This was the morning that we had to take a train ride to London, I didn't have the time to cook breakfast as we had to get things cleaned up before checking out. We took the Virgin train to London on a weekend. If you are traveling first class, the train will serve food during the trip however, if your travel on weekend, the food option is limited, if you are traveling on weekdays, they have vegetarian options for you to choose. If you happen to have time, I would just advice you to pop by M&S Food hall and maybe buy some vegetarian sandwiches as back up. I bought a falafel wrap and egg sandwiches for myself and packed instant cup noodles for the kids :)

While in Glasgow, if you are a Dr Who might wanna check out a few of the tardis around the area. We managed to see 2:

1) at 106 Buchanan Street:

Tardis @ 106 Buchanan Street

2) at intersection of Wilson Street and Glasford Street:

A nicer one selling coffee and sandwiches @ intersection of Wilson St and Glasford St

We didn't know there is another red one @ 27 Sauciehall Street or we would have been there as well 😄
