I always wanted to bring my kids to the beach, for them to play with the sand. And also it is good to expose them to different texture. Somehow rather, we have yet have the oppportunity to do so.
So lately, i’ve been wanting to have a sandpit in the garden. Thought of making a trip to the beach..in which PD lah nearest to bring back sands. When we were little, my parents brought back sand from Langkawi! I told En Suami, but he said beli jer pasir sungai kat nursery pokok2 tu. But smpai sudah cam tak beli2 pun. The other day we were in The Curve, i went in the Think Toys shop (formerly known as ELC) and to my suprised, they sell pasir…play sand for children. I was delighted tapi agak mahal for just a pasir, sekampit of 15kg was RM39. I bought just one kampit to see quality macam mane.
Next problem was to get a sandpit. I searched high n low for it. Toys r us pun tak jual. After few days of failure cari sandpit, i became frustrated. Ye lah..pasir dah ade, tapi mane nk letak. I was already looking fwd to let hArith play with it.
And then, En Suami came out with the brilliant idea, beli fish pond yg slalu kat garden tu…yg fiber punye bekas tu. So off i went to those Hardware shop..gi check kt Ikano and also OU, tapi skrang trend kayu dah lapuk…ade yg bricks jer. Kecewa lagi!
Next day, went with my mom to those nursery kat area sg buloh. Walaaaa. Found it, tapi harga die lar pulak. If ikutkn i wanted to settle with just those fiber container kosong. Asalkn bleh letak pasir cukup lar kan. Tapi memandangkn it will be parked in my mom’s garden, she wouldnt want to settle with just that. She insisted on those proper pond with kayu and all.
So here’s our sandpit….
athirAh wasn’t that much interested compared to hArith
meanwhile, hArith were soo occupied with the sand that he simply ignored me and the camera. I called him like a thousand times for him to smile to the camera…
