It been around 2 years since our last family trip. Finally we are leaving SG and heading Japan. Tokyo and Hakone is our final destination in Tokyo. Looking forward for the exciting experience together.
Another reason of leaving the Happee Day Event early was to head JB – City Tebrau with our extended family. This round we went in with two cars. My niece boyfriend is driving as well as my sister’s boyfriend.
It was indeed very fun to travel together although there was a slight jam at the causeway. Yvette is having great fun at my sister’s boyfriend car and didn’t want to nap at all.
Our first stop is always hitting the Jusco supermarket for grocery. Since we were travelling in a big group and we decided to split as not everyone love to do grocery shopping. Only me, SIL, D & Yvette were in the supermarket. Yvette dozed off shortly. It was already very late when Yvette dozed off. She slept for about 2 hours. This gave us a chance to drink our coffee at Old Town. (If you are fan of Old Town, do try their coffee there. It is so much CHEAPER!)
I decided to leave Yvette with D and SIL went to Harris Bookstore (also known as Popular) in the mall. I got these 说说唱唱 CD & VCD for myself and Sam. It was Sam who recommended me this CD and I find them good. I also found some exercise for 明明 series we are reading from iPod. (But short of one book 幼儿学写字 1 下; they are so much cheaper in Malaysia. RM 4.40 per book with 10 % discount. Yes, Popular card can be used in Malaysia. I found the same set of books in SG at ELM Tree at Paragon.)
P/S: Getting books in Malaysia really more cheaper. With no GST, with discount and exchange rate, make our dollar more stronger.
Look at the crowd there, I bet Early Childhood Learning is equally big piece of market in Malaysia.
While I was making payment, Yvette suddenly woke up with a bad dream. Luckily I was already at the cashier and my niece passed her to me quickly.
My niece gave us a treat at Black Canyon for Dinner. It was really cheap and good. For 10 adults 1 child, we only spent about hundred and our stomach was filled with plenty of food.
After dinner, we went back to Jusco department store again. This round I managed to 3 sets of PJ and 2 sets of home clothing for only RM49.50 which I don’t think I can find the same deal in SG.
While I am searching for clothing, D, my sister & her boyfriend kept Yvette accompany at Amusement Centre. She also had fun in the indoor playground and we only spent RM3 for 20 mins.
At close to 9 pm, we decided we have to make our way back home. But sadly there was a jam at the custom which resulted we were only back home close to 11.15 pm. We quickly bathed and get ready to bed. We were too tired to pack our stuff and leave everything around.
Yvette didn’t make much fuss and all of us were in our slumber shortly.

We didn’t have a decent breakfast. D and the others watch Mid-night movie the night before, so most of us stay at our room to have bread and milk & instant coffee before we embarked our journey back home.
Driving down Genting H. is a breeze for the driver.
The spirit of Yvette was high despite we were heading home.
Since we didn’t have really good meal in the morning, everyone was famished as we travelled and decided to stop over for meal. Unfortunately we did not tell the driver earlier, so we ended up at A&W.
One thing we notice in Malaysia, we tend to find a lot of houseflies at the eatery. So it really not very hygiene to eat in Malaysia in my perspective.
After our meal, we stopped over at store to collect our Otah and then the driver also brought us to this YOYO 特产专卖店.
This is the most stylish snack shop I ever been in Malaysia.
There are so many choices open to us and this store accept SGD too. But of course the rate is not very good. Nevertheless, it didn’t stop us from buying. We brought several snacks back home and some sauce. Unfortunately I have forgotten to take picture of the items purchase and now was no where to be found at home.
Overall, i think Cameron H. is a place more for relaxing. I love the weather there..We definitely enjoy this trip and hope we can make arrangement to go on another trip together again!
On side note, I regret letting Yvette wear diaper to travel such a long journey. She got nappy rush when she was back. I guess more toilet break for Yvette is needed and I should let her wear cloth diaper instead.

To our horror surprise, Yvette was not interested in taking any rides after we purchase the ticket. We don’t why the staff insisted us to pay as Yvette is yet 90 cm.
The ticket is a tag that need to be worn at our arm and it is waterproof.
After much coaxing, she finally sat on the carousel. Seriously, she wasn’t very keen. It’s us who pressed on.
Sometimes she really make me wonder how come she has more mood swing than me. So unpredicted!!!
Then she agreed to take the Venice Gondola ride because she like water.
She is only interested in these machines and made us running after her.
Since we have not check into our room, we decided to leave this Theme Park where supposed to bring so much fun for Yvette but it didn’t. We went up to our room to catch some rest.
After catching some rest in the room, I check out the guidebook of the Theme Park on where to entertain my child before dinner. I found out there is actually an indoor heated pool in Theme Park.
We first check out the activity outdoor but none interest Yvette. And moreover she refused to wear the additional jacket when we were out, we decided to call it a quit and make our trip to the pool. (This make me feel like we had wasted our money spent on the ticket without catching any rides!!!) And this is also my regret of not able to capture any picture of us in the Outdoor Theme Park.
Nevertheless, the trip to the pool is finally a success plan.
She had so much fun in the pool till she didn’t want to leave.
Again after much coaxing, she finally waved goodbye to the pool.
We went back to our room to bathe Yvette. After cleaning ourselves, we decided to head for Dinner.
Not knowing where to eat, we decided to have a very simple meal in this Theme Park. We headed food court and ordered a plate of Chicken Rice for Yvette and myself. (Chicken Rice is one of Yvette’s favourite food) and a plate of noodles for D.
Honestly the food in the Food court is good enough to fill up the stomach. But at least we did not pay a premium for it. My SIL’s family had 3 plates of rice in one eatery and that cost them RM64.40!
After our meal, we decided to shop around the Theme park in group. (Yes we have spitted into 3 groups in the afternoon.) And then I came across the Fish Spa. My SIL’s family persuaded me to give it a try and eventually I got addicted to it now.
We brought a short pant for Yvette from one of the retail shop. This pant was chosen by Yvette herself and the shop assistant was really impressed Yvette could make “this decision”!!!
We finally went back to our room and rest at around 11 plus. Yvette dozed off shortly and D went out in the middle of the night to catch movies with the rest.
