Short holiday @ Port Dickson

*warning, long post with lots pictures!*

Over the long weekend, we didn't go anywhere, knowing most places will be packed with people, and also hub still working. He only got off day on Monday and Tuesday, thinking to go somewhere on Sunday, but don't know where to go so we just stay in town, thought just go to shopping mall and do window shopping.

On Sunday night, two bil's and family already left for holidays and just left us and parent in law at home. When we about to go out dinner with my mum and mother in law, father in law called and told us his car been stolen!!! He was going for his "weekly mathematic class" (you know where??) where his car been stolen! End up hub go to police station to make report with father in law and i bring my mother, my boys and my mother in law to go for dinner and shopping. What a "sui" merdeka eve!!

Monday, hub said why not we just go to PD for a short holiday, the nearest and he think the traffic will be ok since everyone will be back on Monday and only we make our way to PD. Quickly pack some clothes and told the boys we are going for swimming and play sand at the beach, the boys are so happy! My mum didn't want to join us, so she stay at home with my parent in law.

We left around 2pm, reach Port Dickson around 3pm+ (see who is driving!!!) Hub said just walk in to Avillion, see got any room available or not. Check with the reception, only left water chalet available, since we never stay at water chalet before, we thought maybe might give it a try, althought the price a bit expensive, somemore it's a Public Holiday!

The room are awesome!!! We like the room very much and so do the boys, they got so excited! After take some rest and camwhoring, we went out straight to Ostrich Farm. The place quite run down and they didn't maintain the place, but to my boys they thought it's an interesting place for them, can feed the goats and ostriches!! I got phobia with the ostrich, few years ago when i went to Korea, i "chased" by the ostrich!!! I scare their long neck, like want to "peck" me!! While feeding the goats and ostriches, mummy and sons scream so loud. hahahhahahhaha


our room...

i like the bathroom, so big and nice, and with open roof top
while shower u can see the moon in the sky.

my boys checking out the bathroom





i'm so scare the boys will fall out from the window, keep remind them don
jump or climb out, drop into the sea i cannot help them.

so jakun with the blind...hahhahahah


i like this picture.....so sweet....


checking out .....


lazying on the bed....


three "boys" are posing and making monkey face to the camera...



outside our room....


pet farm at the hotel...



At the Ostrich Farm not much things to see, there is some goats, quite a few Ostriches, most are "botak" - fur-less, a lot monkeysssssssss, big, medium, small and baby monkeys, some ducks, rabbits, snake...

We just walk around, a lot mozzies, my boys got few big kisses from the big mozzies. :( When we stop at the ducks area, saw there is another few kids are feeding the ducks with some grass, my sons feed the duck too with grass. Suddenly Cruz spot there is an duck egg inside the cage, he ask me what is that? Egg? Why got no duck come out from there? Then i said we can eat the egg, but this is duck egg, not chicken egg. Cruz start "talking" to the duck, "duck duck, GIVE ME YOUR EGG!! If no i don't give u mun mun!!" "duck, give me your egg!!" me and hub stand aside cannot stop ourself but laugh so loud!!! We didn't bring our old digital camera, if no i should take down the video, it is so funny, he talk to the duck with serious face! I notice Cruz like to talk to animals, when he saw turtle at the hotel's pet farm, turtle was crawling, he follow the turtle outside the fence and keep ask the turtle," where are you going, turtle??" At the Ostrich farm, he ask the ostriches, "why you follow me??" *ostriches want to eat the food on Cruz's hand*



mummy and the two boys feeding the goat...see how scare is Fearles
on next picture, he closed his ear! hahahahhahah

mummy and fearles so scared!!!

finally, Cruz brave enough to feed the ostrich!!


a few fur-less ostriches....




"duck duck, give me your egg ar!! if no i don't give you mun mun"


monkey busy eating the star fruit


Cruz still left some "food", he feed this goat before we left.

After the ostrich farm, we went back to hotel and bring the kids to the pool and swim. It's happen my 2nd bil and family also stay in the same hotel, they are there after their Melaka trip. My sons got "gang" to swim/play with. I surprise this time my boys don't afraid of water, had been sometime i didn't bring them to swim, this time they just enjoy themselve so much. The two older cousin jie jie talking care of them while i can rest at the pool side see them playing. Fearles so excited and so "eager" want to learn how to swim like the jie jie, jie jie hold him, he told jie jie " I CAN SWIM MYSELF!!" Walau, suddenly his speech become so loud and clear!! hahahhaha .Water a bit cold and i scare their flu and cough will get worst (they are having some cough and mild flu), after about 1 hour i ask them to go and shower.

i like this picture, but it's a bit blur

Fearles....

another pose with bread!!!! hahahha


We went out dinner with bil's family, after dinner no where to go and everyone just back to hotel and rest. Hub went out for his drinking at the lounge, while i'm in the room with the kids. After put them to bed, i had a good shower and enjoy my coffee and satay as supper!!!! ( we ta-pow some yummy satay back to hotel room and eat :P)
Next day, wake up early, after breakfast in the hotel, thought want to bring the kids to the beach to play sand. Went back to the room and change, when we about to walk out from the room, it start raining!!!!! What a bummer! I can see my boys with disappoint face, hub said bring umbrella and bring the boys to play sand for a while, don't think it will rain heavy. There we go, went to coffee house to get extra umbrella then we proceed to the beach. The more we walk, it start heavy down pour and with strong wind!! It's so cold! We want to go back to the room, but my boys keep saying want to play sand, so four of us, with the umbrella go to the beach, let the boys play a while, crazy hor??!! After 20 mins, i can see my boys are shivering, but still relectant to go, they find it is really fun to play in the rain, althought we got the umbrella, we all still got wet, because of the strong wind and heavy rain. We told them to go back to the room and play in the bath tub, they need "hot shower" it is really cold. No pictures on the second day, we did bring the camera to the beach, but it is too heavy rain and hub is busy "moving"/holding the umbrellas, no chance to take.


Early morning, already with gloomy weather....



two boys are happy, bringing their sand toy and prepare to
go to the beach!


it's raining cats and dogs! sigh...


We check out the room at 12.30pm, after had lunch with bil's family and we head back to KL. My boys had a fun time althought it is just a short trip. :)
