Selamat Hari Raya
Maaf Zahir & Batin.. Hope I’m not too late!
Anyway, hope everybody is enjoying their Syawal and open houses and puasa 6 and catching up with family and friends!
Ours was great to our likings. We had a quiet raya time after a hectic Ramadhan. Raya morning.. we missed solat sunat. B decided to have diarrhoea that morning! Poor girl, she was just quiet and resting. Very unlike herself. The moment we arrived the masjid, we saw the masjid was filled up to the staircase and already on tahiyat akhir. So, yeah… We will try again next year insyaAllah..
Went straight to my MIL’s after that, whacked raya food, salam-salam mintak maaf, collected duit raya for my girls and then straight to my parents house in Seremban. We left KL quite early, before noon and traffic was good. My brother from Dublin is back for raya. So there was three of us celebrating raya this year, missing my sister and her family in Dublin. We are back in KL by dinner time and it’s time to pack!!
Langkawi here we come!!
In Langkawi, we stayed at Ombak Villa of Langkawi Lagoon. OMG that place is like heaven… The water villa was ah-may-zing!!! We decided to spend our first day there just sleep and do nothing.. Hehe..
My two girls are definitely animal lovers. They really enjoy petting animals and playing with them. B is already asking us whether she can have her own farm.. I almost fainted. Can’t believed I’m raising a farm-girl! Hahhahah…
A must visit for us.. is the Langkawi Wildlife Park.
This is our second time here. They allowed their visitors to feed and play with the animals. B got the chance to feed the crocodiles during our previous visit because we were there during their feeding time.
B was busy feeding the rabbits while T fishing at the fish pond. Maybe we can have a farm in few years time. Hehe..
New thing we tried this time… Horse riding!! Tasha is a big fan of horses (and dinosaurs!) She loves to collect all sort of horses (and dinosaurs!) figurines. Since she is big enough, daddy decided to bring the girls (and mommy) for horse riding..
The place is called Perdana Stable, somewhere nearby Telaga Tujuh. B and T were really looking forward to it, mommy on the other hand, got a little too scared but too shy to show it to them. Hahahah..
B & T super ready for their horses!!
Mommy bagi salam dulu to my horse. Hahaha.. Somehow my husband has this talent which able him to take my photo at my worst moment! Haha..
We signed up for a 15 minutes horse ride which equals to 3 hours of mommy’s time! I was hoping no horse avalaible for me but the possibility is quite slim since there were about 50 horses there. Haih…
It was pretty scary initially. It’s all about balancing… The girls who took me around (who hold my horse so it will not run and freak me out) was good. I’m pretty calm with her around. She told me that the horse can sense fear. Hahaha.. (My horse’s name is Anteriana btw..) Why Anteriana why.. I keep telling myself to keep calm, malu if I freaked out in front of my girls. Hahaha.. We went around the stable area, some jungle that made me feels like Arwen the Elves from Lord of The Rings!
Yup… that is Liv Tyler as Arwen in LOTR! Hahahahaha… I was already speaking the elves language but my husband doesnt understand me (in my imagination, he is Gandalf 😅!!)
B and T were pretty cool. T was soooo cool she was busy trying to pluck leaves from the trees above her. OMG young lady, hold on tight to your horse, please. My husband, he knows how to ride a horse so, no big deal for him..
Surprisingly, it was not bad at all. I knew I like it the moment I got that elves feeling. Haha.. My girls loved it so my husband booked another session the next day. This time, for 1 hour and they will bring us to the beach. Yay!! I can be elves again!!
The second time we went, it was all good. I loved it! T was a little too calm until she fell asleep on her horse. B loves it. Now she wants a farm with horses. Huh..
Anyway, it was a fun experience for all of us. If you asked me to do this again. Yes, I would. Would I go for proper horse riding class? Maybe not. My plate is pretty full for now, but if my girls were interested, yes I would allow them…
