Trippin': Gold Coast Day 2

Second day in GC: Sea World.

Sea World is one of the famous attraction in Gold Coast. You can get entrance package consist of 3 theme park for a better rate (Sea World, Movie World and Wet n Wild)

Word has it that Sea World is the best option for family with kids. It is a premier marine park with a lot of attractions for kids and also adults.

I'll let you go on with the pictures first

Dolphin show

To-tol (read: Turtle)

He obviously had fun at Sea World (exceed his nap time of course). The show was great especially the dolphin show. Theres also acrobatic show using jet-ski that was pretty awesome. You should go during weekdays to avoid long queue for rides. Theres only one rides that's considered extreme other than that it's mostly for kids. The thing that we like the most here was that Adam get to see all the animals that we dont normally see in the zoo in Malaysia

Next post: Movie World

Trippin' : Gold Coast

To celebrate my birthday this year, I we chose Gold Coast, Australia for our much needed holiday. We were quite nervous about the long hour. But before the 15 hours journey we must try the 8 hours first right?

'tak mandi pagi' face 

The 8 hours flight was long, 8 hours flight with Adam was even longer. Haha. We were doing fine at the first 3 hours but we kinda lose it when he was jumping here and there at the hour 4. He refused to eat and only drink the apple juice (more sugar high)

At 5hrs we gave hime cough syrup! *hahhaahaha kidding*

We reached Brisbane International Airport and took our shuttle straight to Gold Coast. It was about 1 hour 15 minutes ride to reach our apartment. No traffic as reached at about 8 at night. Here, the shuttle was the most convenient way to travel to GC from Brisbane considering the amount of luggage, stroller and one cranky boy that we have. You can read about it at Con-x-ion
Very reliable, slightly pricey but to those who need comfort and easiness after 8hrs of flight, this is your best option

We settled in quite alright. GC was 2 hours ahead of KL so we reached our apartment at about 10pm. Too tired to walked out, we ate instant noodles. *guilty as charged*

We stayed at Ocean Pacific Resort Broadbeach. I lost most of the apartment pictures in my phone due to some storage problems (read: 16GB is not enough) but you can always click the link to view the property.

The apartment had a kitchen area fully equipped with cooking utensils, refrigerator, dishwasher, kettle and storage area. Its easier to cook here in GC considering halal food are mainly kebabs and all so I cant eat those forever

I would highly recommend the apartment. It was spacious enough for the three of us with ocean view!!! To be honest staying at apartments has more benefits than hotel here in GC. You can cook, do your laundry, and its cheaper if you travel in a group

The first day was filled with jalan jalan at nearby area and buying groceries for breakfast and all

The beach is really clean and it was really nice. I would recommend Broadbeach from Surfers Paradise. Less tourist here and not as hectic as SP

Day 2: Sooooonnnn

The longest hiatus

My my my...

I have been on the longest hiatus, I can't even imagine.
No excuses, I have been busy, lazy, busy and lazy again.

Well, whats new? I still have one husband, one son and my belly fat has yet to reduce (I am still fat)
I have been travelling for the first half of the year and most of the journey were recorded in my instagram

I shall write soon.

Bali Bird Park

Its been ages since Ive last wrote something in this blog. A very dusty blog of mine
Nonetheless, let me continue from where I left of,
the Bali Trip

Arrived in Bali and headed straight to Sudamala Suites and Villa, Sanur. I usually done hefty research on the best place to stay and stuff but this time around i was swamped with work and I only book whatever cheap deals that I can get

Sudamala suites is not bad actually. Since it is so difficult to find villas that can accommodates infant, so we had to settle with rooms instead. I understand, villas are for honeymooners, so crying and screaming babies are not allowed.

Breakfast time

Breakfast were served ala-carte style, you order whatever you want from the menu, and it was already included in our hotel fare
Cool huh?

Breakfast like a champ!

Come, I feed you

Hello, ladies!

After breakfast, we headed to the pool and swim. Rest and ready for Bali Bird Park trip. Bali Bird Park is located at Batubulan, on the way to Ubud and about 20mins drive from Sanur or 40 mins drive from Kuta

Park fee: USD20

Theres a lot of exhibits here that are from all over the world. The park is clean however it is not really baby friendly. Stroller will be pretty difficult to use here due to stairs and steep location at certain area

Arrived when it was his nap time

Slowly waking up

woke up and chase girls right away...haih

Adam really love birds. All sort of birds. He would go "bird...bird...bird" and chase them. He even touch their poo poo

Baby mommy

Theres also bird show when we were around.It was pretty amazing the way those birds interact with the audience

Cool stuff

It was a fun trip for us especially for Adam. I would recommend this for parents with young kids. 

Till, then

Travelling with an infant(an active ONE!)

Okay, those who followed my Instagram would know that I went to Bali last week for a much needed vacation. Initial plan was to go to Melbourne, unfortunately its Winter and Adam cant be in cold weather due to his condition so we scrapped that idea out.
So we chose Bali
Bali is so amazing this visit was my 5th one


We booked flight ticket without much hesitation. I was a little bit nervous when I have those image Adam running around the plane in a very tight and small area, and those stary eyes that will look at us with some i-am-going-to-kill-you-why-your-son-is-so-hyper, so we booked the business class. 

Immigration counter

Taking the aero train. Acting like big boy

He is a big boy actually

Selfie time

The flight going to Denpasar was easy. We took off at 12.05noon and its actually his nap time. After 5 minutes, he started to sleep


Time for mommy and abah to selfie

Fit right into the bassinet. Dont think he would be in few more months

Meal with no stress

After 2 hrs of napping, he woke up and started his own hyper self back


So we used Hi5 to the rescue

All in all, it was a good flight to Denpasar Bali, but we definitely cant say the same about flight going back to KL.He was so hyper, luckily all the ang-mo in the business class area were not that judgy towards us. 

Prior going, I did some research on how to occupy infant his age in flight. Some suggested buying books and toys and only show him those when you board the plane so he wont feel bored so fast. Some suggested keep the snack coming and just feed them to get them sit still. But I think one lesson that I learned is that, it really depends on your kid. The hyper adam can only focus for 10 minutes max! 
Not even Hi5 can save us

I need to train him how to sit still

Pls,help me
