The Long Weekend – from Tambun and Cameron Highlands with love

Melaka had a 3 day holiday and so we took the opportunity to bring our kids to both Tambun and Cameron Highlands. As parents I think we were both equally, physically exhausted. BUT EMOTIONALLY ELATED. Ee had fun and I’m sure Ninie enjoyed the new environment stimulus.

Started the morning with McCafe. YUM

It was not easy travelling with a baby and a 7 year old. Thankfully Ee is not the type who would throw a tantrum in public. He is a silent protester though – like tak nak makan, tak nak participate, tak nak tu.. tak nak ni. All this done with his head hung low and melepek takde mood kinda face. Still manage to pisses me off sometimes.

At Tambun, Mr Husband insisted on carrying Ninie in the body carrier padahal dah bwk stroller. Dahlah panas, pastu penat. Subsequently he doesn’t have the mood to play in the water. Hence Ee too doesn’t feel like playing in the water. Prior to this, we had always arrive at Tambun by 10am – only this time we were a bit late. This is our 3rd visit to Tambun. Maka matahari dah naik, orang dah ramai – in conclusion, tak berapa best when its only you and the kids. Especially the meragam puteri lilin baby.

BUT do not get me wrong – TAMBUn is a fun place. We would still go but perhaps with better planning. It has a water park, a fun fair like area, mini rollercoaster, haunted house, petting zoo, lake activities, a spa, adventure parks with glamping sites and many more! All this for less than RM100 per entry for an adult with MYKID. We bought our tickets online and got our tickets for less than RM60. Kids less than 90cm gets to enter the park for free. Nice kan?

Cameron Highlands was physically exhausting as well. Nak sujud peha sakit. We went to the Brinchang Tea Plantation and of course our favourite Kea Strawberry Farm. We didn’t get to enjoy the strawberry related food this time because of the crowd but we managed to have Carrot Cake and a pot of tea at BOH Sungai Palas factory. Mr Husband macam biasa order carrot cake mcm bela arnab 100 ekor. Pastu penat nak makan. When I asked why did he have to order that much (2 slice kontot je pun) , he said a blogger reviewed it to be super delicious. OK. Fine.

The highlight of this trip was probably our hotel stay at Bedrock Hotel ( a review coming soon). It was a hotel I chose and splurged on because I do not want to risk Mr Husband booking hotel yg tah apa2. It was one of the best nights I had as I get to soak myself in an Epsom Salt bath with the Goblin OST playing in the background whilst the kids and husband is asleep. BLiss.

Travelling with kids requires proper planning in terms of the timing to enter the parks and interesting sites. Refreshments in the car. I was glad I brought mini plastic bags to keep Ninie’s diapers in the car. I wish I brought sugar cubes to further add taste to my tea and complimentary coffee in the hotel room. Mr Husband kinda used up all of it. Hmph. But it’s OK.. ni sume experience.

 

Figuring life out together with Ninie

Baby Ninie is like my new wonderbra. Can’t seem to let me go. Always wants a cuddle in my arms WHILE STANDING. She could somehow tell if I was sitting down, it puzzles me all the time. HOW COULD SHE TELL?

I did try baby wrapping her in an effort to cook and clean at the same time. But it has yet to work. OUr Skin Must Touch, Ninie says. The most I can do was clean my spoon and hit the kettle to boil for my next cuppa of Horlicks. I’ve slowed down on the MILO because it makes me constipated. Its very stressful to take a dump with the doors open while the baby is crying just outside – yet you need to cover up as modest as you can because your 6 year old son is also in the house.

It’s not all chaos. There are quiet times (very little of it). That’s when I’d rush to pray, shower or prepare a quick meal for Ee. Occasionally I get to add things in my Online Cart but never actually get to Proceed with Payment.

Recently, I get to bloghop and heyho.. WANI has resurfaced after 2 years! She’s a future surgeon you guys, be VERY AFRAID! And like her.. we are both waiting for Wasaii (kakjet) to be back on track as well – that crazy woman we call friend.

Blogging may not be as mainstream as it was before but I still look out for those nice, quirky and informative ones. Nowadays, its so difficult to find online (lengthy) reviews on products or experiences. (one of the reasons I read blogs). Too many positive ones on Instagram and Facebook until I had to add search terms like ‘produk XXX tak best’ or ‘tak sesuai’ hoping for some individual to write up on the cons of a product and so on.

I love reading friends blogs , if they have one, because its where they could kind of dump their inner thoughts which may not resonate with other people on FB or IG. Plus, people do not scroll blogs anymore or put them under the bookmark cause its time consuming to read. So it can kind of be like our little secret. Only special (ye ke? hehe) people who care enough about you would actually read crap you (I) write. Or equally passionate bloggers.

Or bored people.
Or nosey people.

HAHAHAHA.
