Avilion Port Dickson: 6 - 8 June 2010
Continued from here (part one)
All set to go to the pool!
The kids luuuuurrrve the pool! Needless to say, HQ went nuts over the big slide, and went again and again. He played water guns, beach balls and just splash around with other kids in the pool. It was cute watching him conversing in a meddly of English, Mandarin and Malay with them :-). He was especially fond of a sweet 8 year old girl, Jia Qi :-). QQ needed a little time to warm up to the water, but once she's ok, she went on her own around the pool :-). I noticed that QQ likes little girls more than boys. She talked to little girls elder than her, and later was chatting with them like old friends :-D. With one girl, she asked her to "Come and play with me! Splash water on me la! Do it again!". With another, she was asking lots of questions about her arm floats :-).
QQ also slided down the slide with HQ seated behind her, holding her. After the first time, she beckoned HQ to the slide again "This is fun! Come on, kor kor, let's do it again!" Hubby and I laughed at her gutsiness :-D. After 2 times with HQ holding her, she went all on her own on the big slide. Countless times! Look at her grin!
My big girl, she's growing up too fast... *big wet eyes*.
Everytime we go to the pool, the beach and for meals, we walked pass the petting farm. And everytime, the kids will sure go goo-goo gaga over the animals. The farm has a feeding time at 10.00 am every morning, and we went both mornings. HQ is accustomed with handling little animals and is gentle with them. With QQ, I needed to remind her to be gentle now and then. HQ looked very happy here holding a rabbit, while QQ tried to catch one. Got one! She really loved them :-) When the tortoises didn't come to him, he went ahead and lifted them up from the pond *no eye see* There's also guinea pigs and chicken in the farm. Here's one very beautiful cock :-)Dining
Breakfast was complimentary. For other meals, we dined in the resort restaurant as well as drove out to PD town to eat Chinese tai chou. Service at the resort restaurant was slow, food doesn't arrive at the same time, and from the two meals we had there, food was only ok.
Setting out to PD town for lunch...
We looked so pink here :-). Notice that flask in my hand? I brought a handy-dandy mini double boiler and double-boiled soup throughout the night for my kids :-D. We ordered rice and dishes and the kids had warm soup after lunch. At least I'm rest assured they get something nutritious... heehee For one of our dinners in a restaurant, one of the dishes that we ordered was crab strifried with lots of ginger and spring onions (non-spicy). The kids walloped 6 huge meaty claws! We could not finish all the crabs, so we tapau-ed back to the resort. After the kids slept, I heated the crabs in my mini double-boiler and hubby and I had crabs for supper. Totally yummy!
All of us enjoyed this holiday very much; we love the resort! HQ is talking about going back already! :-D.
