~ Trip to Kuala Lumpur/Sunway Lagoon (Part 1) ~

** 6th June 2008**

Finally got a chance to go on a vacation on our own with my brother and his girlfriend, Huijie. I was looking very forward to the 5 days, 5 nights trip (6th June - 11th June). As we were taking the 630pm bus, I was still busy working on that Friday. There were a lot of issues at work and I was troubled... still the holiday mood helps to cheer me up.

I stopped work at 4pm and set off to take the kids. We parked our car at my bil's place and took MRT and taxi to Golden Mile Complex. We were there before 6pm and decided to have a taste of Thai dessert.. Bad choice. The desserts were too sweet and nearly make me puke.. :S We waited at the lounge area in Transtar office.. they were renovating and the smell of paint was really strong.. *puke* Still, it was very comfortable and Denver gets to drink his Milo. :) Brother and Hj finally reached and the kids are so happy to see them.

Yeah!! Time to go!! The bus is really neat! Its my first time sitting on a First Class coach.. really feel like I'm on a plane. There is a personal LCD screen for you to choose the Games and Movies you like to watch, WiFi and power socket for your laptop, Message chair and a coach attendent for your F&B needs. There is a dinner inclusive and we can order hot drinks as well.. Cool!

After we crossed the checkpoint, we are all set for Dinner and Movie :) The down side is it's hard to 'contain' Gladys on the bus..especially when the meal is served.. She "Mum Mum" all the time and you can't stop her hands from grabbing stuff.. messy... I had a hard time watching the show too.. Finally got some peace as soon as she falls asleep.. :D Managed to watch parts of Ratatouille and 881. Did not managed to complete 881 though.. but that's ok. We reached KL around midnight.. Got off the bus first and Hj's father and brother were already waiting at the petrol station ready to take us to their home for the next 3 nights stay.

It was a really nice place.. 2 storey house and brother showed us the way up to Hj's room on the 2nd floor. It was a big room with a toilet within. There is a ceiling fan and mattresses and pillow all ready. We put down our luggages and put the kids to bed.. It has been a long night and I guess the excitement has made them wide awake! They were finally asleep before 2am... I woke up before 7am and took a photo of the view from the window.. it was quiet and the air is fresh.. I only realised that Brother and Hj must have gave up the bigger room for us.. they stayed at a smaller room downstair.. Kinda feel bad that they have to squeeze.. :( Thanks brother.

We had breakfast at a nearby coffeeshop and our first stop is Sunway Pyramid! Hj borrowed her brother's car to take us around for the next few days.. Barry gets to drive around while Hj gave direction.. It's a shame that Denver had a bad injury on his head and we have to skip Sunway Lagoon.. Ah well.. maybe next time.. Although they can't play with the water, they get to see toys, had fun with the playground, had nice food and Denver took a picture with Batman.

Next stop, Mines Wonderland. Did not really step in to the theme park though cos it doesn't seem that urmm 'fun'. Denver wanted the boat ride though.. so we took him on a cruise instead. :) He also had rides and I guess the children should be the happiest lots. We had a nice dinner at "Gui Lin" resturant at the old airport area.. quite rural and we really drove quite a distance out.. had Chilli crab, Dong fen, La la, vegetables, Cereal prawn and a special Fried noodle. Hj says its equivalent to Singapore "Fried prawn noodle".. but the dark noodle and taste its very different. It was a looong day and we finally drove back to rest. Reached before 10pm.. had a nice bath and went to bed... the kids manage to sleep before midnight.. phew..

** 8th June 2008 **

It's Sunday and its Duan Wu Jie (Dumpling Festival)! This year, I don't feel the mood though.. maybe it's because I in KL?? Or was it because I did not have any traditional dumpling yet? Anyway, we had Roti Prata for breakfast! I had Onion Egg Prata and Teh Tarik.. Cheap cheap and Nice nice!

We headed for Titiwangsa Lake Garden. In Singapore, there is Singapore Flyer.. In KL, there is "Eye on Malaysia" - 60 metre tall portable Ferris wheel. We all took a ride and had a good eye's view of KL and Genting. There was a food fair there too and we had a couple of 'snacks' and drinks along the way.. Tried the Keropok, Chendol, Fries, Otah, Tea... and bought a urmm a snack where Maggie mee is fried and covered with 'prata-like' skin..(wonder what's that call)..

There is also a horse ranch nearby but we missed the opening hours for the horse rides.. Denver was kinda disappointed and wanted to ride on a horse.. So we decided to shop at a nearby mall first. The kids had fun at the arcade and we had a light lunch at Oldtown coffeeshop. I like the Ipoh Hor Fun.. the food is not too expensive too.

We went back to the horse ranch around 4 plus. ... after getting the tickets, Denver queued for the horse ride.. he was so excited.. :) Denver get to ride on the horse for 2 rounds (apparently its a ticket for each round) and we went to queue up for the horse carriage ride shortly. Denver gets to sit at the front and the uncle was nice enough to let him hold the horse strap to guide the horse. He had fun.. Gladys was sleepy all the way and I think she doesn't know what's going on.. I had to wake her up so she is awaken while we ride on the carriage...

We were all tired and dirty... time to go back for a bath and we can get ready for dinner! We decided to give Hj's parents a treat to thank them for being so nice and letting us feel warm at home. After dinner, we shop around at Summit shopping mall and manage to get Gladys a pair of shoe. We also bought Denver some stickers too.. Time is getting late and we headed back to pack our luggage as tomorrow we will be leaving to stay at Corus hotel for the next 2 nights..
