Weekend Getaway to Sunway Lagoon

Hubby was needed in his KL office for the weekend and since its the kid's school holiday, we decided to bring the kids up too. I had all the hotel and Sunway Lagoon tickets booked, only to realised that Baby Ryan does not have any passport! Blur mommy then got to rush to do up the passport for him. Luckily Singapore Immigration is very efficient. The passport was ready in 3 days time, just in time for our trip.

Anyway, most of the details of our trip had already been written by the girls in their blogs, so I'm not going to elaborate here. Will only note what was not mentioned in theirs.

There were 2 hiccups on the first day. We got to Sunway Lagoon Resort at about 8am. In the hotel confirmation acknowledgement, it stated very clearly that I had booked for a room with 2 Queen Size bed, but according to the hotel, they do not have such bed. Hubby was insistence and luckily for his insistence, we got ourselves a deluxe suite + an extra bed put in, all for FREE!!

Next, when we got to Sunway Lagoon itself, we realised that the 2 girls are not allowed in almost all the rides in the Extreme Park! I questioned the manager why the age limit was not indicated on the web. She was really nice, she told me that she can gave me the entrance at a discounted (Malaysian) rate and asked me to used the receipt to seek refund from the agency. So sweet of her!

Other than these 2 hiccups, our stayed at Sunway was great.

We tried the Fish Spa and OMG! Its so ticklish! I couldn't stop laughing out loud and every passerby stopped and looked. It somehow attract more customers for the shop. Hmm..I should actually get a commission from that.

Nicholas didn't dare to put his feet in. The 2 girls took quite some time before they finally submerge their feet into the water.

In the Park, daddy's job is to look after the 2 girls while helper and I handle Nicholas and Ryan. When I'm nursing Ryan, helper will bring Nicholas for the rides. So glad that Ryan is a fast drinker and I'm doing direct breastfeeding. He took only 15minutes to satisfy himself and that can last him for 2 hours. Also, I do not need to go hunting for hot water to warm the milk.

After nursing Ryan, I brought Nicholas for most of the thrilling rides. I must say he is rather brave. He went on the Kiddy Roller Coaster ride and other rides in the Wild Wild West.

He also played the slide at the water play for kids. That's a big achievement for him as he doesn't like to have water sprayed on him. He used to cling onto daddy whenever we go Wild Wild Wet.

After 2 days of fun at Sunway Lagoon, Hubby needs to get back to the KL office. Thus, with 4 kids and 1 helper, we went shopping around at the Sunway Lagoon and Midvalley. Nothing interesting with the price tag similar to Singapore's Orchard Road.

Hubby met up with us after his work and we set off for Singapore. We stopped by at "buangsai" Village (couldn't remember the spelling) for roadside food and small bites.

See how happy Little Nicholas was!

He was in his cheeky mood and even showed his cheekiness to the camera.

Pet said...

What a wonderful trip! My hubby was just telling us that we should go to Sunway Lagoon the next time we go down KL.

Btw, I think you meant... Bangsar Village? :-)

Blessed mum said...

Thanks Ling; XinYing

Miche - Yes, they have it at the amusement park. not very scary, if my timid boy dares, I don't think you have any problem. :)

Pet - Yes Yes Yes! Bangsar Village :) Sorry, forgotten the actual spelling ;P

Moomykin said...

Hey, you guys had a hit at the theme-park! That's great.

We are waiting till the kids are a little older so that they can go for more rides and make out outing worth it. Also, don't want to have to deal with all the "Sorry you are too young/small for this ride".

Ah, Bangsar Village is one my son's fav mall. hahaha...

Angeline said...

Oh dear!
now that even you say its ticklish, I think I better drop the idea of trying....
'cos once I start laughing I can't stop....
or else I would walk off... then what a waste of money, isn't it?
there is one at IMM, which I often pass by, often stop to see others, but never stepped in to try...
how much did you pay for yours?

Blessed mum said...

Moomykin - true. think when they are in primary will be just nice. My girls can play all the games except those in Extreme Park.

Angeline - We wanted to try ever since it started but never found the time. Its really very ticklish, i practically was laughing out real loud! Adult is RM25 and Child is RM15. hubby managed to bargain so we only pay for 2 adults and 1 child.

mommy to chumsy said...

sounds like a lot of fun though the trip was short eh? you know that we have never been to sunway lagoon? hahahahaha. i don't think i'm as brave as Nicholas. i won't dare to go on the rides :D

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Tell you what, till now I have yet to visit Sunway Lagoon. Hehe. I shall bring Sarah there some day.
Did you visit the mini zoo near Sunway Lagoon?

I have heard about fish spa but I will definitely not dare to try..Hehe.

Blessed mum said...

Mommy to Chumsy - Really?! That's a big surprise. I must say, he is brave to take on the mini roller coaster ride :)

Joanne - Mini zoo? do you mean the petting zoo in Sunway? No, we didn't as we find it nothing fantastic..hee..Singapore one better :)

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Ya ya, petting zoo. I have never been there, but I have heard from my fren that the zoo is better than the National Zoo:-)

I will surely visit Singapore Zoo when I have my first trip there.

Blessed mum said...

Joanna - yes. Our Singapore Zoo is a MUST see attraction if you should come to SG. hey, maybe you can let me know when you come and we can meet up :)

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

My sister told me that the best thing about Singapore Zoo is their night safari.

Sure sure, I will surely inform you when I visit Singapore.


Blessed mum said...

Joanne - actually, both the zoo (day and night) are just as fantastic. but with toddlers, day will be better. They have the water play area where its the fav of all children.
