Playground @ Taman Tasik Perdana (Perdana Lake Gardens)

Some time ago, Moi and family decided to visit this massive outdoor playground...
From suspension bridges...


To massive slides...

And interlink passage ways...
Good ol' fashion swings...



See Saw's...
Obstacle course...



Take your pick. There's also some simple equipment for the older generation to work it out... while little ones run about ... until their tank runs out! :P
One thing to note though. There are two playgrounds. One being more prominent (closer to the main entrance) vs the other (further off, reclusive) and there is a simple reason for that. If one looks at the below picture, you would spot the massive tress and these trees have pigeons using it as their home. And that means tons of bird poo... splattered over one of the small slides.

While it does provide a welcome shade, it also meant fungus and mold have taken residence at the slides too. Pity.

Avillion Admiral Cove

Sometime back, moi famille visited a different Avillion resort - Admiral Cove. It's approximately, 5km away from the normal Avillion that we visit, but with quite a few changes.

While Little One enjoyed his time at the beach, we did not...


It's called Admiral Cove for a good reason - see the yachts behind?

As this holiday had coincided with our Wedding Anniversary, here is our drink... to 7 years of marriage. And may have more luv!

Have i mention this? I love my missus very much...
An almost 180 degree view of the marina that is beside the hotel.
Nice sunset...
And an enjoyable (almost) time...
So what did we not like? See the picture below. This is more like a public beach with activities. And so, hotel residents from other hotels will come here for their water sport activities.

In the end, it became a messed and a cacophony of fumes, noise and pure annoyance.
The only saving grace is the room. And below, the bathroom is delightfully huge and inviting.
See how huge the room is??? Yeah, that's the only thing we like...
I guess, it's what you pay for as this cost almost 50% lower than the other Avillion.

We definitely prefer the chalets...

The End.

A hospital having an aquarium, Little One's first cycling adventure and Sand Art

Missus and I saw this coming and knew that once the hospital that Little One visits where his Paed is located, he would go bonkers and be happy to spend hours there...

And so, this shrimp decided to say, 'Hello' to my super excitable 4 year old then.
 The Aquarium is located near the Pharmacy and as patients wait, to calm them down. Or for people to be calm. One thing i'll say is true - it gives me some peace as Little One will be in his little world... :P

 My ... oh my... this Sea Slug (?) got him over the moon.
 Yup. That's my boy... engrossed in his aquarium viewing!
 During the recent holidays, Tropicana had some events held in conjunction. And so. Little One got a chance to learn how to cycle (more like me pushing than he cycling!)...
 He did get the idea... but probably in his mind, it's just better to ask Daddy to push...

 And when one mall has something for kids, so too will the next. And so, @ Starling, we were given free entrances to a kids area...
 Needless to say, Little One HAD to take the most exquisite picture to 'paint'!
 Hats off to the volunteer who so patiently peeled off every small piece for the sands to stick on... :P
The End.

Avillion @ PD - 2nd Round visit!

Does this look familiar??? It does?
Yup. We are back @ Avillion PD. We loved it so much, that we decided we would love a revisit. So, here we are a second time round!!!
And this time, more prepared to enjoy the facilities along with Little One. And Little One getting more courage to go up the water slide.
This time too, Mummy and and Daddy can join him in his Kiddy pool. :)
Does he look like a Frogfish??? :P


His umpteen time going up!
We also decided to visit the beach (called Riau) located next to the Garden Chalets. Unfortunately, we still preferred the other side, and so made our way there...
Little One gazing away and enjoying his view the next morning
An almost 180 degree panorama shot...
As the tide was low, yours truly decided to venture out...
Whilst Missus and Little One played on the sand.


Missus enjoying herself with the strong sea breeze that we were getting then...
Normally, in normal or high tide, this out rock would be hidden under waters. But when the tide's low...

Family photo!
Sadly, still having no luck with a proud peacock....
Neither with this one...
For lunch, we decided to have it @ Starbucks, PD Waterfront... Here's the view at the car park.
And Little One enjoying himself...
But not happy to go home...
But at least someone's enjoying her Starbucks! :P

The End.
