back home

everytime i go on a holiday, whenever i land into KLIA...my first words are usually, "i am so glad to be home". even if it's a driving hols, once i step into my own house, wah! so relax & happy to be home...really there's no place like home!!

it's the same with this short trip, we got the freebie tickets, booked our own hotel and just go there without any itinerary. suppose to be really free and easy...still we end up soooo tired??

didn't really do much, went up the macau tower... daddy say he wants to walk the tower, try to overcome his fear of heights wor (if only it was sooooo easy??). so when he got to the observation deck, there's some spots with glass floors that lets us have the full view of how fast you will fall if the glass ever breaks!! a really scarry experience to walk on glass floors that is on the 39th floor. daddy already panicked with cold sweat...so went up another 2 floors to do the walk...daddy's legs became jello and he just couldn't move, he tried and tried maybe walked less than 10 steps (give face ledi, more like 3 steps lah), erika was better maybe about 20 steps before she cried and wanna go back. daddy's excuse for chickening out of the walk was that he had to take erika back. he was the laughing stock of the whole tower!! a fren took a video, he may just kill me if i put it up!! me...of cos i did the whole round, posing here and there for picture moments.

another place we went was to the Lou Lim Ieoc garden (waste of time la). i mention it because erika learnt a very important lesson here. i asked her to take care of her own "pink" bag and carry it...but she left it in the cab. at first when she told me about it, she was still laughing "mommy do you know where's my bag (hehehe)". i thot she was joking, playing silly games then i got a bit angry at her and told her that she has lost it and will not ever see it again (which is the truth). daddy said i was too hard on her...consoled her and promised to get her another one. even though there's really nothing much in the bag, erika learnt a big lesson that day and was more careful with her things after that...hey..travel is a good teacher leh!

of cos go macau must go hong kong la...for the food! too bad the weather was outragiously hot and humid...no mood to walk much outdoors, drenched in sweat and become sticky like the glutinous rice dumplings. bought home one big dumpling from yung kee, yummiiiee. on the day it was cool, it rained the whole day so we just took a bus trip to stanley, enjoyed the view from the double decker. the bus ride was a little scary coz it was rainy, wet, slippery, narrow ocean view roads by the cliff...daddy dare not look out the window much...guess he hasn't overcome his phobia yet...hehheehe...maybe next time we do the bungee on the tower...maybe that will cure him for good! if his heart can take it.

overall this trip not much shopping, saved a lot of money hahahaha.

this mommy's hubby flew us back to kl! wat a small small world.


of cos coming home to see my darling ellisa and showing her the cat-cat shirts and pants and bag i got for her, she loved all her cat-cat things...made my day la!

pictures haven't download yet...will post when i am not lazy!

maybe for a less stressful vacation, we may try Outer Banks next time.
