Firstly, zillion thanx to all wishes for Adam. We are happy and so does he. After the crying session upon the unexpected result, I drove back to office in Bangsar. He came with me. Stayed with me until Friday. And those 2 days, Adam couldn't stop smiling. He said he can't believe it. Was it true...? He kept on questioning me..checking out that he was not dreaming. I laughed everytime he asked. I was flying in the sky seeing his smile. He worked so damn hard for this. And it pays. Though Adam is not a brilliant boy, but at least he gave a shot. A fully loaded gun with bullets to be shot in his war. He was lucky he aimed correctly.
Ok, for that we planned a short Penang trip for him over that weekend. My SIL happenned to be having a convocation on 2nd of Dec, Tuesday. Our family need to be in Ipoh by Sunday because she needs to attend briefing sessions and rehearsals on Monday. Since Saturday was free, we thought that a one night stay in Penang could show some appreciation to the boys.
Oh, remember Adam's cousin, Firdaus? Firdaus successfully gained 3As, 1B and 1D..hahahhaha. He failed his Maths. We tried so many ways to help him in Maths, but we failed. He got B in English which for me is an outstanding achievement by looking at the performance of his school. Even his English teacher was so happy and cried while hugging him. And he got A for his Science. And it still confuses me. How come he can gain A in Science but failed in Maths? I thought Maths is allies with Science?
Anyway, we are happy for both of them. So happy... Their achievements are beyond our targets and achievements. So an extended trips might send them a message that we do appreciate their efforts.
We departed from Malacca quite late that Saturday plus with extremely heavy traffic and heavy rain...we finally checked-in at Vistana Hotel at 11.30pm. Mommy brought home cooked delicacies...a lot. So we just enjoyed the food and enjoyed the comforts of the room. I booked a 3 bedroom suite at Booking.Com. I got a good price. Inclusive of breakfast, we paid less than 100 for each pax.
This is the master bedroom. This was for me and hubby....hehehehe
The living hall. I think they need to add up more sofas... We need family bonding time, right?
The dining hall....
The kitchen. We didn't use it. The kitchen was not up to our expectation.
They have a small room. It has iron facilities, a small corner for hot drinks facility and it is also a study table. I did my work here and sent my documents to my boss. BUT....my mobile data is much more faster than their wifi.
The 2 happy boys in their room. This bed is a little bit smaller than queen size bed but bigger that super single bed. Just nice for them.
The second bedroom used by Mommy and my SIL. Each room is attached with private bathroom. So we enjoyed our bathroom moments. Oh...no..no... No mandi bunga because there was no bath tub.
We didn't go out to enjoy Penang that night because we were too exhausted. So we totally enjoyed the room. We went down for breakfast the next morning. Breakfast was ok....but I did experience a better menu and food here during our previous visit.
Adam was happy with his breakfast as long as they serve sausages. Ish..ish..ish....
This is Mommy's plate. Enough rest, comfort in the room and the next morning your tummy growls.... Mommy pushed this plate to me so that I could snap a good picture. Hehehehe
We had good time overall. Adam took some time to swim but he didn't enjoy it. Too many people in the pool, he said. We took more time to rest and kills time since we got a complimentary late check-out at 2.30pm.
Upon checking-out, we went to a place for lunch. I will share the place later.....
Anybody going to Penang?
