Over the long weekend, we joined a convoy of cars on a short escapade to Kuala Lumpur. We left on the early morning of Good Friday, along with a good 2-hour’s worth of queue of cars. Horrors! Eventually we arrived into KL shortly after noon and checked into the MiCasa All Suite hotel, just in… Continue reading Kuala Lumpur & Petrosians, The Discovery Centre
I have been particularly enthusiastic teaching the kids about marine life because we spent the last 2 weekends snorkelling in different beach resorts. The minute school was out, we headed up to Pulau Redang in Terengganu, Malaysia. As Singaporeans it is almost impossible to drive for more than 40 minutes (with no traffic, that is)… Continue reading Redang rendezvous at The Taraas
Did you know that May 4th is Star Wars Day? Honestly, I was never a fan of Star Wars when I was growing up, and didn’t think too much of Episodes 1-3. I especially find the young Anakin whiney and prone to throwing tantrums. Maybe it stemmed from not knowing where you were conceived from,… Continue reading May the Fourth be with you – Lego Star Wars Days at Leogland Malaysia!
We stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel Penang in Batu Ferringhi last month, and we really loved it! Actually both my BIL/SILs have stayed here before, but they didn’t mind returning, so I think that speaks something for the resort? Also that is probably proof that OCD is genetic, eh?? Heh. We stayed there for 4… Continue reading Hard Rock Hotel Penang – Rockin’ Good Times!!
The next day, we headed into Georgetown again to go to the Made in Penang – Penang Interactive Museum. This time our minibus cost us MYR60/hr, no idea why, but we were happy to have it! I have not been to the Trick Eye Museum or the Alive Museum, so I have no idea how… Continue reading Penang 2014 – Part 2, Georgetown
We were actually just in Penang in August, but after our wonderful family trip to Hong Kong, we decided another trip before the end of the year was in order. So with lots of greedy people in our family (and one Baba), we decided to head to Penang. We chose the earliest flight there… Continue reading Penang 2014 – Part 1, Escape Park
Last week we escaped on a 3 day holiday without the kids. Although it was short, we enjoyed the freedom, the company of our friends and of course all the amazing food that Penang has to offer and unbelievable prices. We literally ate throughout the entire day, sampling as much as possible, shopping or taking… Continue reading Thankful Tuesday: Having a village of support for a short break
We had a very lovely getaway to Langkawi late last month. I have only been to Langkawi once, and that might have been 15 years ago. As mentioned in my previous post of tips for planning a regional holiday, it was a toss-up between the Westin Langkawi (which looks equally divine) and The Andaman because… Continue reading The Andaman Langkawi
We are so lucky that from Singapore we can easily travel to so many countries in a short amount of time. And not only that, we have so many flights to choose from, since we’re a major air hub. Last month, with no holidays planned for the year (horrors!) I wanted to go on a… Continue reading How to plan a regional family holiday getaway
It has been years since I’ve returned to Tioman, since those carefree diving days. We came to Tioman over a long weekend with the hubby and his colleagues, and flew on a tiny quaint (read: kinda old and nostalgic) Berjaya Air Dash 7. The flight was delayed for 3 hours due to late arrival of… Continue reading Pulau Tioman
