We started the morning getting up later than usual… always great to have a chance to lie-in :-). After our breakfast, we headed out to our destination, the Sunway Wild Life Interactive Zoo. It’s located inside Sunway Lagoon itself. Looked more like a day for the kids instead of for my birthday yeah? ;-) Well, when my kiddos are happy, I’m happy too (I think I speak for every parent) :-). QQ was over the complementary entry height limit even though she’s only 2 :-) My princess and me. QQ was wearing the dress that I made for her, for her 2 year old birthday :-). When hubby was queuing to purchase the tickets, it was already 11.30 am. I thought it over and went and discussed with hubby. By the time we go in, it’ll be about 12 noon. And we won’t be staying long there as we will be leaving for Sunway Pyramid for lunch (I don’t think the food choices are healthy for kids in Sunway Lagoon). So the most we’ll be staying in the zoo is 1 hour, maybe a little bit more. Is it worth the RM 150 we’ll be paying for the entrance tickets? I think not…
So we told the kids that we’ll come another day, we will come earlier and most probably buy double entrance tickets for the wet park as well. HQ was disappointed, but when hubby told him we could go Sunway Lagoon to see people ice skating, he was actually very curious and eager to leave the place at once :-D.
We saw people ice skating at the lower ground skating ring. HQ and QQ pestered us to let them join in the fun. We must sound like really boring parents when we told them “Not this time, wait till you are a little bit older” :-(
We distracted the kiddos with rides instead. They must have spent 30 minutes there, enjoying themselves. Look at how excited QQ was? She was holding on to HQ’s pants while HQ maneuvered the steering wheel out of danger :-D Lunch was at my favourite Dragon-i Restaurant, at the top floor. We had 2 trays of little steamed pork dumplings (1 tray is complimentary). HQ ate two on top of his favourite steamed rice with chicken, chinese sausage, and mushroom (he ate ½ serving). I had the other ½ with QQ (who also ate 2 dumplings); both of us loved it too :-). Hubby’s pepper pork fillet and fried rice. For dessert, we had fried durian pancakes (we find the ones prepared in Dragon-I, Pavilion more authentic. The ones here at Sunway Pyramid seemed to be added with something else, which we could not identify.) Mango, sago and pamelo dessert (my favourite also, but again, the one here at Sunway Pyramid is not mango-ey enough? Seemed like been added with something else) Black tortoise jelly served with honey. HQ mixed the tortoises jelly and mango dessert together and he loved it. Warm hasima and red dates soup, for QQ. Yummy! QQ savoring the mango dessert too. After lunch, we walked for awhile… our kiddos were intrigued by the “Arabic Street” – don’t know what that stretch is called, so we called it Arabic Street. And the Christmas deco there (we later went home and set up our own Christmas tree :-))
When we were paying for our yogurt and fruit ice blended drink, we noticed QQ had fallen asleep… HQ did this to his meimei Out of love for her, he kissed her and said “AND to close her mouth so that fly doesn’t fly inside her mouth”.
A simple birthday outing, but we’re very happy nonetheless :-).
