Weekend break..


The water chalets we stayed in..they looked a little like kelongs...


I'm back :)

Reached home yesterday at about 10pm...all 3 of us were totally dooshed and fell asleep pretty fast..Pity hubby who drove throughout the trip and still had to work today.

It was a relaxing trip for most of us (cept for the drivers).. Aidan was really gwai..I was worried initially coz I was wondering whether he would be fidgety during the car-ride but he was an angel. Out of the 9+ hours driving time (including our detour to Malacca for shopping), he slept for about 8+++ hours, waking up about 5-10 minutes before we arrive at our destination. I didn't even need to nurse him. Really can't ask for more :)

The resort had a Balinese type of feel..I love the water chalets..the rooms were huge with a huge four- poster bed in the middle of the room and a day bed next to the window..The bathroom was al-fresco style which hubby was happy with since he wasn't allowed to smoke in the room :P..And we can hear the sounds of the waves from our room.

We basically ate and ate....the food there was so-so imo (the best meal was actually the Ramli burger we had at the pitstop before just before reaching Singapore Tuas checkpoint) ..The durians we bought were good tho..Had a mega fruits fest just outside our room and I od-ed on durians & rambutan..Aidan tried durian for the first time..initially, he made a face when he first tasted it but then, he started clamouring for more. Yipee..my son loves durian as much as us :)

Dunce me forgot to bring my camera battery charger so I couldn't take that many pics (esp those scenery type) since the battery was running low...So most of the pics were of ourselves and the kids.

Oooh..Big big bed...and nice balcony :)

Aidan in the swimmin pool...Lunch at the poolside :)

Aidan's first taste of durian...

Aidan..the only male *ahem*


The rest of the pics here..

============================================

We'd detoured to Malacca on our journey back for lunch and a li' shopping at Mahkata Mall..

The carpark was very packed that day since it was a Sunday..so when we saw a car moving out of a lot, hubby quicky drove there and he was backing up the car into the lot when he started horning..He was blocked from reversin into the lot by this group of young punks - 1 guy in bright yellow tee and 3 gals who looked alike [rebonded dyed hair, spagetti strap top and jeans]..We asked them to move away but they countered in cantonese that they were reserving the lot for their friend. My mom-in-law was super pissed and got out of the car to reason with them ..Never knew her cantonese was so fluent..she basically gave them a earful and told them that they had no right to reserve lots and told them to move away from the lot..which they eventually did..While alighting the car, the 4 of them stared at us but we basically ignored them..

I mean..wtf, who do they think they are? Mom quickly asked dad to take down the licence plate of their car as an insurance in case they do somethin to hubby's car..When we were done with our shopping and return to the car and inspected it, it was okay..But the car wasn't safe from the birds tho..hehe~
============================================

Oh..and Aidan turned 8 months old two days ago :)

Driving up North without a relief driver is damn terok!!! I drive up to KL every other week and each time I'm the only driver (my passengers can't handle my manual trans car). And each time, I have to find means and ways to keep awake while my passengers are zzzzzz comfortably. :(

What's the name of the Port Dickson resort you stayed at? Seems like a nice place. Thinking of making a detour there on my next trip to KL.

We had 2 drivers in our car (my in-laws) but hubby was afraid that they could keep up with the car who was leadin the way since the speed was at abt 100-140km/h..We all tried to stay awake but pretty soon, all of us zzed so poor hubby struggled to drive and keep awake. He told me that that was one period on the way back when he felt sooo tired and the speed of the car + the cold made him even sleepier so he started drivin really slowly..Felt bad for him.

Here's the website of the resort..it's called Avillion Village resort..quite nice :)

Eh..why do u drive down every other week? Won't be it better that u guys take the coach instead..and gah..the no. of toll u gotta pay if one takes the second link is ridiculous!@

Nice spot for a mini vacation! So how did Aidan like durian?
angeliatay
Aug. 25th, 2003 03:39 am (UTC)
Initially, when he first tasted it, he made a face..but then, he started makin hand signals like he wanted more so we fed him more :)
Seems like he was gettin to like it more..

Woah, the water chalet at Avillion sounds really neat! Large rooms and balconies, huge four-poster beds (woohoo!), al-fresco bathing area, surrounded by water all round ... my kinda chill-out place! Much more accessible than the Maldives too. OK OK, must go chochok gf to see if she's keen to go! Heheh! :)

Um, the 9-hour drive sounds a bit terok (I rather my gf not drive), but I guess it's not difficult to find the place? Causeway 2 better?

It's nice if u jus wanna plain relax..not much in terms of activities like water sports and all..and yeah, the bed is really really nice n comfy hehe..

It's 9 hours in total - to and fro so it's not that bad..About 4 hrs each way and the detour to Malacca plus 1 hr..we made 2 pitstops each way so it wasn't that bad...Hmm..if we didn't have a car to lead us there, we probably would have gotten lost..I think unless u are familiar with port dickson or if you have a really good comprehensive map, it's not gonna be easy to find. Causeway 2 was better becuz less cars.

Wah so good one u eh..jus treated gf to a holiday in Tokyo and plannin for another one at a beach resort..shioks leh!

Happy 8 months old to Aidan... Looks like he receive an expensive present for his 8th months present ;)

Your holiday looks soooo FUN FUN AND FUN except for the Mahkota Mall part. Nowadays is kinda "unsafe" to drive around with all the alarming road bullies cases around.

hee..we havent really gotten into a habit of buyin him gifts on his bday month..coz I guess I tend to spurge on him every other day hehe..

It probably looks 'funner' on pics..It's the usual holiday with kids..a novel experience for us since it's our first time with Aidan and I'm glad it went well for him coz he hardly fuzzed and seemed pretty blase by everythin. I think he din even realise he wasnt at home.

It's probably tougher for u with 4 kids to plan a holiday!

yeah, it was a good break. Aidan was really well-behaved. I think he was really happy to have the full attention of his parents and his grandparents..doubt he knew he was away from home tho :)

U should plan a trip with Gabe too..much easier for u since u breastfeed :)

I think he has grown a little tho I cant be sure. His hair has grown a fair bit tho still a li' baldish on top so it may be the reason why he looks more 'adult'...
