Oh wow, to a new Malaysia

5 straight days of not working.

How do I feel? Elated? I have such a mixed feeling, somehow. People really have the power to change, and we did it in a such democratic way. Kudos to my sisters (even Aini) for exercising their rights to vote.

We arrived at 7.45 am, and yet look at that!! Previously, we will come around 8.30 am.

Wefie-ing in front of the school, still waiting for the Pusat Mengundi to be open.

And look at that! I was at Saluran 6, and people were coming in the early morning to vote! FYI, I was on the other side, and closer to the Saluran (it was like around 10 people in front of me). And that is actually my queue. I have to wait for nearly 1 and 1/2 hours in line.

With Faryna, my primary school mate. She finished ahead of me. I like pilihanraya just because meeting old friends.

Came back to school, and spotted Hidayah. She came all the way from Kuantan, and is a registered voter in Gombak.
A Chinese auntie was helping me to snap a picture with Hidayah's kids. I love the atmosphere, people of all races come in just to exercise their rights. We are Malaysia! Oh BTW, Hidayah asked me to look after her kids and told them that their mother was waiting in line upstairs.

The reason I came back, because I was bringing Aini to vote. Even though we have to wait for a while, alhamdulillah, her voting station was changed to Saluran 1 (ground floor) because of her lack of mobility. It was nice seeing the uncles / aunties (Saluran 1 is for aged people) gave ways to her when I was pushing her wheel chair. I have to sign on behalf of her in front of the SPR officer. And I was able to assist her for her votes. Her vote was sealed in an envelope by Ketua Pegawai Mengundi.

And yeah, the crowd in the afternoon.. Saluran 5-8 were for younger people.
Well, quite an unforgetful experience this time :)

Avani Gold Coast Sepang

Short breakaway, very secluded and along the way of our travel, we are surrounded by kampungs.

Check-in was quite a disaster - it took more than 1 hour for us to get our accommodation, due to high influx of guests, which I think the resort need to improve. In fact, we arrived late for the check-in at 4 pm (check-in time is 3.00 pm)

View for Family Villa

Mode of transport - bicycles - since villas are located far away from the main entrance

Waiting for the car during our check out
Last night during our stay, we had a steam boat dinner. Food was so-so. It was better searching for food outside the hotel rather than dine in.
Short stay, and it was good for the family to have some quiet time. The kids had been cycling non stop.

Short trip to Langkawi!

Booked Malindo Air tickets for Langkawi trips with the kids (minus Fawwaz), during Thaipusam & Hari Wilayah (1-3rd March).
Flight to Langkawi was from Subang Airport

Booked AirBNB apartment and we got a newly developed apartment - Dayang Bay Apartment. Breakfast included in the package, and they have utility room for laundry.
Best kiddie pool. Faiq susah nak mandi kolam tau, ni mandi tak naik-naik
Went for Langkawi Sky Cab (Cable Car), and congratulations to my husband for conquering his fear of heights and cable car

Ticket price - RM 35 (adult), RM 25 (kid) - RM 5 discount from the normal fare because Dino Park was closed. And we need to show our My Kad /My Kid to get the price.
On top of the observation deck

I got a nice shot of Fahri!

Layankan pula anak-anak kat 3D Art Museum, inclusive of the SkyCab ticket
Fateh yang senyap dan pemalu ni enjoy sangat dengan 3D Art Museum

Kemanjaan terserlah! Hahah

Then we went to Rabbit Farm, just beside the 3D Art Museum (this attraction is included in the ticket price).

Underwater World Langkawi. Bolehlah, kalau rasa nak skip pun OK je hahaha

Ticket price = RM 36/adult, RM 26/child

Then at night, we went shopping at HIG. Luggage bags are very very cheap

Next day, went to Langkawi Wildlife Park. My family enjoyed the park very very much!

Ticket price = RM 24/adult, RM 16/child (with MyKad/MyKid) + animal feed packs. We went there early in the morning since the opening time is at 8.30 am, hence we were among the first tourists to arrive there and enjoyed every moment!
There is a deer...
Because some people are crazy for insta worthy pictures, kan?
Because the crocodiles are 2 meters long!!! That's why there is a warning!

A raccoon!

Went to Perdana Gallery, to see what are the collections Tun M received during his tenure as the Prime Minister. For history buff, bolehlah! Tapi penat sebab banyak sangat kompleks.

Ticket price = RM 5/adult, RM 2/kid (below 6 years old free).
Then we went to Dataran Lang, Langkawi. Panas lit lit ya amat! Iconic landmark for Langkawi.
We skipped Makam Mahsuri, Beras Terbakar etc since well, we don't think that it was worth it for the kids. 

Second last day, ada budak main pintu terkena kuku... siap kena berkejar gi klinik

Hey Amni! Killing our time at the airport (last day) since the flight was delayed till 1 pm.

Got a full fledged flight!
Arrived at KLIA and went for our prayers, late lunch and snapping photos at Anjung Malaysia (walkway to Surau/Observation deck). Then, baliklah!

What we bought in Langkawi:
  1. Chocolates
  2. Luggage bags
  3. Minyak gamat (yes it is a must!)
  4. Tefal for me (nak ganti periuk dah buruk sangat)
Worth it, dah lama tak pergi Langkawi. Last trip was in 2009 with 3 kids. And we went during low season, best best tak ramai orang.

Short escapade in the city

It's our usual annual hideout.

PNB Perdana Hotel & Suites near KLCC. Because it is nearer to husband's office, and he has been working over the weekend and on public holiday, some more!

Just got back from my brother in law's kenduri yesterday, and decided we need a short break.

The kids has not been anywhere during their school holiday, except for Melaka - because of my school reunion and kenduri.

I have been entertaining the kids for a while now, feel like single handedly won the mommy of 5 battle! HAHA!

Dino Fun Run @ 26.11.2017

Fun run with the whole family.

Benarnya berat sebab nak pikul Faiq sambil jalan/lari dekat 4 km.

Organiser quite disorganised, hence the delay in the run, and in fact it was a mess during the medal collection.

Ok, lain kali tak boleh bawa Faiq masa run. Penat pikul.
