Finally the day we had been waiting for is HERE!!!
MIL was so worried that little boy will cry on the plane as this is his first time taking a plane. I had to assure her that he will be fine and thank God, he did so well! No crying during take off and landing; able to enjoy his kid's meal and slept well too. And so glad that he got a seat too so he is able to lie down and sleep during that 7 hours flight.
We touched down at 6.30am (Australia time..which is 4.30am Singapore time!) and little boy make no fuss at all waking up and walked by himself out of the plane! By the time we checked out and collected our luggage, its closed to 7.30am and the coach transfer was there waiting for us (and the rest). All of us slept on the journey to our apartment which is about 1 1/2 hour ride except for Rachel who is wide awake and filled with excitement!

Its quiet convenience to eatery and public bus to theme park is just outside the apartment. Beach is less than 5 mins walk.
By the time we settled down and unpacked our luggage, its already 10am+ and hubby told everyone to take a quick nap before leaving for our Extreme Sea Sport at noon. I so tired but little boy is not sleepy at all and wanted to play. Luckily, Rachel is not sleepy to and she helped to accompany her brother for that 2 hours so mommy can catch some sleep.
We took the public bus to Sea World and only to realise that the venue for our activities is located 800m away at the Sea World Resort! No bus in, no cab too. So we just had to walk all the way there. Luckily, the weather was good.
I had emailed and got ourselves a family package costing AUD550 for the 4 sports (Parasail; Jet Ski; Seaplane and Jetboat extreme). Its really worth it as each activity lasted for 30 minutes.
All of us went on the speed boat (have check that its safe for pregnant woman) and start off with Parasailling for hubby and the 2 girls. Little boy had fun riding on the speed boat and the 2 girls have a great time up there!
Next, the 2 girls take turn to ride on the Jet Ski with hubby while the little boy catch his beauty sleep.

Next they went for the Jetboat Extreme which the girls were truly thrilled! Not able to get any photos for that as mommy is enjoying her lunch at the cafe. The girls couldn't wait to tell me the fun and thrill of the ride especially when the boat did the 360 degree speed turn!
The boy woke up just in time for the Seaplane ride and all of us got up the plane to view the beautiful scenery.
Little Nicholas wanted to play at the pool but the water is freezing cold and we didn't want to risk him catching a cold and falling ill right at the start of the trip. Just let him kicked around the shallow water while the girls went for the slide.
And hubby slipped on the way up the slope as its full of moss...
Finished everything at about 5pm and we went for dinner at Broadbeach for a quick bite. Little Nicholas didn't like the food and was cranky by then too.
We hurried finished our food and went back to our apartment. Little Nicholas started to look for helper and luckily, he is still attached to me and I consoled him and told him that we are here on holiday and aunty is not here. Let him watch some car racing on TV and he soon ready to settle down to sleep. This was the only time he look for helper and the next few nights, he will tell me saying that "cannot look for aunty; cannot cry". Such a good boy!
