What We Did During The Holiday

I guess everyone in Malaysia must've had a wonderful long holiday. :) Gwen just finished her one week long school holiday too in Indonesia (actually her school holiday started on Friday, 26th August). We flew back to KL again on 25th August (Thurs)!!! We just came back to Jakarta this morning on board the 7am flight.

We had a great time during our short stay in KL. We managed to bring Gwen to the places that she has been longing to go. That's why I have been quiet for a while on blogosphere (we were holiday-ing in KL). :)

We hit the malls everyday...yup more shopping for us again..haha. Gwen is a true blue animal lover. She loves all kinds of animals especially those adorable ones (that's what she thinks). She has so many collection of mini animal figurines from birds, dinosaurs, sea animals to wild animals (I should blog about it one day).

KL Bird Park - 27/8/2011

We promised her that we would bring her to KL Bird Park (too much of Jurong Bird Park ads on TV and she is a bird lover too) instead of the Singapore one. ^_^


Gwen getting ready for her photo to be taken by the photographer. RM15 for a 'blurry' polaroid photo. But it was worth it when we see how excited she was.

Hubby stealing a shot of Gwen. Gwen knows it was a Cockatoo standing on her arm coz they always remind her of "Nigel" from the movie "Rio".

Gwen striking a pose at the fish pond area.

Our family photo with the birds! We paid RM10 per person just to get close and personal to the birds and pictures were taken using our own camera.

Actually, they took quite a number of pics of us with the birds. A close up shot of Gwen with a parakeet standing on her head.

The bird show.

Gwen in action. She was excitedly grabbing the ducklings and chicks at the Nursery section. Also, fish feeding at the pond (actually she was hoping the mandarin ducks would come to her).

Gwen was copying the birds and wanted to make friend with them..LOL.

We were at the Lories feeding area. Luckily, Gwen and I watched from a distance. The lories were quite aggressive. Hubby had scratches on his arm.

A photo of Gwen with the lories.

As usual, Gwen almost always get away with demanding for 'souvenirs' when we visit places like this. She got herself a pink stuffed toy flamingo (one of her fave birds).

Sunway Lagoon - 2/9/2011

Sunway Lagoon is one of the places Gwen wanted to go. This is her 3rd time to Sunway Lagoon. It was a sunny day and as a result of the hot weather..Gwen is so tan now..haha.

We went for the 3 parks package. The Wildlife Park was not as nice when we last visited the place almost 3 years ago. No more ponies and horses there anymore. :(

Gwen only wants her picture to be taken with cute animal mascots.

At the Wildlife Park.

At the Pet Village.

Gwen spent too much time at the Water Park. As we were running out of time, we have to give the Amusement Park a miss.

We also managed to catch the movie "Cars 2". Gwen was a bit restless during the movie.

Gwen at the movies.

My biggest accomplishement was I finally had a chance to visit the hair salon. After sitting for almost 5 hours of hair rebonding, cut and coloring, the result of my new hairdo...tadaa..

Not much difference from my previous hair rebonding though..hehe..I've changed to side parting and my new hair color is in wine red. Most important of all, no more grey hair.

2 words to describe you and your family - "HAPPY FAMILY"

Been reading fun reviews about the bird park. Will try to find a slot to visit some day.

My kids never been to Sunway Lagoon, and I've been there twice, 10 years ago.... There's a lot of improvement now and I guess we should make a trip there.

Hey, you gotta be kidding me - grey hair?? You are still looking young and great!

アンゼエリン September 6, 2011 at 8:48 AM  

Oh Mummy Moon also went to bird park! Must visit there one day!

Look at Gwen smiling all the way..She enjoyes her holidays very much! *_^

Always admire your long straight hair...u look more younger!

Alice Law September 6, 2011 at 8:58 AM  

My girl misses K.L Birdpark a lot, Gwen looks so adorable with the cockatoo and lory on her head!

Sunway is somewhere we should bring the kids one day, perhaps whn they grow older, so tht they are able to take more rides and slides.

Ann September 6, 2011 at 1:41 PM  

Love your side parting and the new colour.

Gwen looked so cute imitating the birds. She really loves her animals.

Glad you had a good time indoors and outdoors.

mNhL September 6, 2011 at 2:54 PM

Nice hair do !

Oliveoylz September 6, 2011 at 9:46 PM  

That's a lovely family shot taken with the birds! Worth it la. Gwen looks so cool and calm with the birds resting on her. What a bird lover:) Y'know, your gal can really pose (photo taken @ fish pond). Where did she learn to pose like that? So feminine! ....and you look very pretty in your new hairdo!

Small Kucing September 6, 2011 at 11:48 PM

Family First September 7, 2011 at 12:42 PM

Sheoh Yan September 7, 2011 at 2:29 PM  

Mummy Gwen, what a nice trip in KL, Bird Park and Sunway Lagoon are 2 very infamous places for children. You look so great after the new hair style. Keep it up.

Alice Law September 7, 2011 at 4:45 PM  

Re Fahrenheit88's SHOGUN(G floor), it's located opposite and parallel to Pavilion Shopping Mall.;D

Serene September 7, 2011 at 4:58 PM  

Wow, you guys had so much fun in KL! Bravo Gwen, I'm not even dare to go near to birds! Mummygwen, you looks so great!!

Shenny's mommy September 8, 2011 at 2:06 PM  

Wow..Gwen had a very well-spent holiday this time. It was not only fun and interesting, but also educational.
After hair rebond and color, mommy's gwen looks 10 years younger now..:)

ChloeRuoyi September 8, 2011 at 4:22 PM  

Gwen is very brave to allow the birds to perch on her :) The KL Bird Park sure looks like a place worth visiting. We wanted to go after watching Rio too but never got around to do it.

I also feel that there can never be enough time to cover all 3 parks in Sunway Lagoon. That's why we are still hesitant in bringing Chloe there.

slavemom September 12, 2011 at 12:50 AM  

U guys really accomplished a lot during this 1-wk break in KL.
Gwen's so brave to be so close to the birds, dun even mind it standing on her head.
I'm so envious of ur long silky hair (and long slim legs). I jes dun hv the patience to keep long hair coz can't stand it when they're ard shoulder length (curling out).

Cookie September 15, 2011 at 1:53 PM  

hello mummygwen! how are you? miss you dear...

As usual, I am so engrossed with the photos you posted in here. I love them all especially your family photo. And those birds are awesome to look at. Chloe also likes birds after watching the movie Rio, hehe.. But now she's into Angry birds (",)

Oh, you look so stunning in your new look. Luvit! I'm thinking of having a hair rebond probably next month :D

Ayie September 26, 2011 at 8:31 AM  

Oh she's so big now!

what a lovely family outing...I can see happy faces!

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy June 26, 2012 at 12:01 AM  

ooo, no more ponies in the wildlife park? I consider it is an attraction.
The last time I went there with Sarah, the ponies were quite smelly, so we dare not go near!

Bird park, suits Gwen the most! See the way she holds and taking photos with the animals, she realy enjoyed herself alot!
