KL with the Kids: Day 4

On the morning of Day 4 (12 April 2013) of our KL holiday we hopped onto the LRT to KLCC. First stop was to visit Petrosains. The kids were quite keen to try out the exhibits and it was overall quite fun. They liked the digger exhibit as well as the sand machine with conveyor belts and pulleys.

After lunch, we visited Aquaria. The visit this time was better than our previous visit three years ago. Timing was good as well because we caught a fish feeding session. The kids also enjoyed the acrylic tunnel.

After KLCC, we braved the after-office-hour jam to have dinner with friends at Setia Walk in Puchong. A great way to end our KL holiday.

It was back to Penang the next day (13 April 2013).

Bayview Beach Stay 2013

We were at Bayview Beach Resort for another hotel-stay from 26-28 July 2013. We were last here in September 2012 with Angie's parents. This time around, we were here with my parents and Niq, Chui Ying, Gabriel & Rosalie. We also took the opportunity to have a belated birthday celebration for Justin.

This time, we booked the family room instead of the suite. It was spacious, and unlike the suite which had a separate room, the family room was one large L-shaped room.

Justin is 4 Years Old!

Happy Birthday, Justin! Justin celebrated his 4th birthday on 25 July 2013.

At kindy, he had a celebration with his friends on 19 July. We specially made him a white butterfly sponge cake upon his request. It was decorated with colourful Smarties candy. On the actual day, we had a simple celebration at home and made do with some cupcakes. We also had a belated celebration for him with the extended family on 27 July during our recent beach holiday (more on this in a separate post).

Here are his updates:
  • He recently enjoys drawing cute and fat airplanes. He would then want to write the names of the airlines and this is when he would ask for some help with spelling.
  • We learnt that he often resisted doing writing exercises in kindy. This resulted in him getting homework to do.
