Farm in the City

We brought Olivia to Farm in the City when she was19 months old.

I remember that every other week when I was a SAHM, I would try to plan a new experience for her back then. First child privileges.

I hope that I will be able to maintain the same momentum if ever a second child comes along.
I can already feel my enthusiasm diminishing as the months go by - because it is getting more tiring to bring her out as she grows older.

I have to keep reminding myself on the importance of making memories and gaining new experiences together as a family. Life is just way too short. 

I love looking back at pictures of our family trips - they bring smile to my face because of all the wonderful memories.

Farm in the City was absolutely worth the drive all the way there - especially for city folks who rarely gets to see animals except when in the pet shop.

Chicks undergoing that awkward puberty stage.

A furry skunk

Lots of fishes and ducks to feed here.

Mike is always so "overprotective."  He's always stopping Olivia from going near animals.

Feeding the sheep.

They even have  fun activity - fishing for guppies ! However, it's SUPER HARD to even catch one.

Guinea pigs

Was so afraid that she would step or trip on one of them.

We even fed the racoons.

Farm in the City is a good introduction to animals for children.

There is more contact with the animals here so the experience that she had here was better than her visit to the zoo.

KK Food Trail

We adjourned to Shangri-La's Rasa Ria Resort & Spa on the 3rd day of our trip in KK and stayed there for two nights (or was it three?) as our friend's wedding was held there.

Our stay there was lovely. The beds were so comfy and the rooms were clean. Enjoyed the facilities there as well.

Had lunch at Tepi Laut Makan Street on one of our days there. Food wasn't too bad.

Ordered this for Olivia but she only ate a few chips. We ended up eating all her fish fingers.

Mike's order - typical of him.

Only problem about dining here are the annoying flies - including sand flies!
Insect repellent is a must.

We also dined at Teppanyaki Kozan for dinner.


Grilled prawn. 

The water was pretty clear.

Wouldn't mind going to KK again for this beach.

Other KK eats that we tried :

Pork Noodles @ Kedai Kopi Jia Siang

Not too bad but I prefer the pork noodles in KL.

Tom Yam Noodles @ Kedai Kopi Janggut

A bowl of tasty goodness.

We also had some noodles + big prawns.

...and some salted cabbage seafood soup with fish maw....

Needless to say, the bill was a killer.

Someone at the shop asked me whether I was from Singapore.
It's sad when people think that you're from Singapore but all you have is Ringgit in your purse.
Is that why the bill was so expensive?! HMMMM.

Haven't been writing for some time because so much has changed for me since November last year. Went through my pictures once again and thought it'd be a waste not to document it.

Picture taken at a pit stop on the way to Kundasang.

It was a pretty hot day that day.

Went into a sundry shop and Olivia was "unstoppable".

Miss Itchy Fingers went touching and taking everything.

Beautiful sight at Kundasang. However, I can't say the same for the smell.

Ice cream at Kundasang! Tasted OK. Nothing great.

Where the calves were at.

The place was so packed. Was so hard to take decent pictures.

Always wanted to do this. Too cute!

There were goats there as well.
