We started the day early by leaving baby D with parents. After packing change clothes, water, some packet milk and biscuits for N, off we went for breakfast to an Indian restaurant. Roti Canai for N and Rava thosai for myself. Hubby had nasi lemak.
The reason of my digression with the mention of what we had for breakfast is this. N told his father not to eat. Why? Wait for uncle to bring a plate. Uncle here referring to the waiter at the restaurant. Wait because the father was eating nasi lemak off the packaging!! After a hearty breakfast, we now headed to Sunway Lagoon. Parked at Sunway Pyramid parking lot and took the elevator down. Met another family who were heading to Lagoon. Together off we reached Sunway Lagoon. The reason for this trip? Well, we didn’t take N for a break during the last school holidays.
Once there, we had to wait in queu for almost 30 minutes to buy the tickets. As Murphy would have it, we (well hubby) was at the slowest moving and people buying for many others que. Those who had lined up behind hubby and moved counters and those who reached much later but headed to other counters had their tickets inhand while hubby was barely inching to the counter!!
When opportunity arised, I quickly signaled hubby to head to another counter. Before we knew it, the wristbands were in hand! The Sunway Lagoon is cashless. So, we have to top up the wirstband with some value to buy food, drinks, rental of float etc. There were many places to reload once you enter the park as well.
Took some photos with Micheal Jackson and a lady in white. I don’t know who she was! N took photos with Peterpan and Captain Hook and some cowboys/girls later on.
We got into the wave beach at about 10.50am only to emerge for food at 3.30pm. Besides occasional visits to other water area and a longer break for lunch, the rest of the time spent was at the man made beach. Both N and I are sunkissed. N enjoyed so much till he himself told me that we should get changed. The little one stayed in the water till his heart’s content. Mind you, he had slight flu and was coughing there and here on Saturday. I didn’t want to use that an excuse to cancel the trip.

Weather was good. Well, at least for me as I am not fussy about being in the hot sun. The place was clean. After having shower and changing to clean clothes, we ventured to other parts of the park. To the toddler-friendly areas. Which means, we didn’t venture to the Extreme & Scream Parks. Hubby meanwhile went for some water rides while I was with N.
|The longest suspension bridge. Gave me the creeps. Walked back after reaching half way mark.
The 5D show was a mistake as N was terrified. He was holding on to his father and crying with fear. Hubby had to move seats to be next to me so that I could console the child. Poor thing. It was a learning experience for all of us. Thank god, N being N, he moved on to other stuff effortlessly.
Some areas were not accessible or not a good sight since maintenance works were going on. Those were very very minor setbacks as our family’s main area of attraction was the Wave beach! It is the fasting month, so not many people were there either.
All in all, it was a fun experience. Can’t wait for D to get bigger to bring him to the park. We reached home by 6.10pm. Hubby went to fetch D. After feeding both the boys, it was time for snoozeland.
