A post-dated blog post sharing our getaway to KL and Genting in April 2014....
It is a 6 days 5 nights getaway ...and a pretty relaxing trip.. we spend most of our time in hotel chilling and enjoying the facilities and we really love staying at Sunway Resort... love their great room, good facilities and wonderful breakfast. It is also super near to Sunway Pyramid so we can go shopping and eating anytime we want :)
Genting is cooling, love the weather and we had a super good hotel deal that comes with indoor theme park admission and a show as well!!!
First stop: Chi Lin Restaurant for a good bowl of fuzhou fish ball , stir fry fuzhou noodle at yong peng. Depart spore at about 10 plus, reach chi lin close to 12 but still not opened yet, so we make a quick stop at Eng Hin to purchase some nice biscuit. Bought the yummy crackers, tau sa pia, egg biscuit, ear biscuit, xiang bing etc
Add: 14, Jalan Besar, Yong Peng, Johor.
GPS: 2.011157, 103.061274
Lunch at chi lin is good, we had fuzhou noodle, fried meat, fuhzou fish ball soup and taugeh for RM37, everyone was very full at the end of it.

After lunch, we continued our journey and reach Sunway Resort Hotel and Spa at about 3 plus. Checked in, unpack and the kids busy exploring the room.

We then went down to the Atrium Cafe for afternoon tea, the afternoon tea set is priced at RM 32++ which includes savoury sandwiches, cakes and scones plus free flow of tea. I had earl grey tea. The food is so so only, didn't really amaze me. Ambience at the restaurant is good but with the two kids running around.....

After indulging in the food, we went back to our room and the kids had fun in the bath tub..
|enjoying bath tub, look how happy they are|
After showering, i cooked some plain porridge for the kids for dinner, and then after playing for a bit, boy boy drank milk and sleep. Girl girl and me went down and explore the elephant, tiger and deer sculpture.

We also went for some food from Tony Roma as the porridge wasnt too filling for us, had a yummy burger and brownie.

Everyone had a good sleep but boy boy woke up slightly earlier the next day, at 7 plus. After brush teeth, clean up, we went down for the complimentary buffet breakfast at the hotel. As always, the buffet at Fuzion did not disappoint. Great selection of bread, nasi lemak, fried noodle, scramble egg, sausages, cereal, yogurt, fruits, yakult, cheese selections etc..
|walk around the pool after breakfast, pic with dolphin|
Changed into swim suit and get ready to play with water
|Boy: Jie, why are you wearing my swim cap|
Surprisingly, girl girl is the one enjoying water this time round (she used to be very scared). Boy boy was scared and doesn't wan to get into the water, he just walk around the sides of the pool, and occasionally go in the water with me carrying him.
|the sister and brother shot|
|love their expressions|
After swimming, we went back to our room, showered and then get ready to go shopping at sunway pyramid and have lunch.
|the kids... showered and ready for sunway pyramid|
|still have time to play :) look at her cheeky look|
|Looking at people playing water in sunway lagoon|
|finally, after messing around in the room, we are at sunway pyramid--- kids with their balloon|
we went shopping for a bit, bought some T-shirt for the kids, i also manage to buy a blouse which is quite nice and cheap....
Lunch was eventful :( ... halfway through the lunch, when boy boy has just getting started to enjoy his food, girl girl said that she wanted to go toilet... OMG!!! So i had to grab the two of them and bring girl girl to toilet...boy boy was crying away, shouting and wanted to continue eating as he is quite hungry and was just getting started on his meal.... then i had to explain to the waitress to leave our food as we will be back.... we had a hard time finding the toilet, walking here and there and realise that the path to the toilet has staircase...!!!! luckily one cleaner auntie was there so i asked her if there is any toilet without staircase (as it is quite hard to carry the two of them plus stroller up a stairs to the toilet). Luckily there is one toilet nearby without the need to climb stairs..... so quickly get girl girl to toilet and then back to our lunch...
|enjoying... yummy! this girl really likes fries|
|and the boy with the fries too|
After lunch, went back for nap and while the kids are having afternoon nap, our special guest of the evening has arrived. LM is my college cum university school mate and whenever i am in KL, i will try to meet up and catch up with her...
And the kids took a real long nap today ( i guess too tired from swimming earlier), so LM and I had a good time catching up...
|dinner with LM at this newly opened restaurant, Pu Tien... we had a good meal|
|adding their collection of balloon... each time en xin saw balloon, he would shout "booo" then i have to see if possible to grab some balloon for him. ... even when his hand is full of balloon, he will still goes "boooo"each time he saw balloon...|
So, we end up going back hotel with a stroller full of balloon... at least 8 balloon i think...
Third day of our trip and the kids has exhausted their energy... girl was tired and i had to wake her up so that we don't missed our breakfast.
|Boy playing his toys while waiting for jie jie to wake up|
|so fun playing... and no one fighting over the toys with me :)|
Finally, jie jie is awake and we are on our way down for the yummy breakfast...
|Girl still has the sleepy look... so cute|
|daily yakult drink is a must for girl|
After breakfast, we went for a walk by the poolside , just like yesterday
|nice selfie with mummy|
|the three of us....|
|another selfie with 3 of us- happy qin and mummy, di di looks a bit impatient already...|
After the walk, we went back to our room, change into swimsuit and its swimming time again. Girl girl is super excited but boy is a bit scared, only wants to sit at the side of the pool. luckily no wind and so not very cool to stay out of the water. Girl enjoyed the pool very much this time round, jumping and splashing water. too bad this is the last time she played at the pool during this trip,initially wanted to go again that evening after their afternoon nap but was raining. the next morning, wanted to go swim before checking out but also raining...

After shower, boy drank milk and went into la-la-land. Girl did some drawing and colouring while i read the newspaper. We had dim sum at westlake restaurant in sunway resort, it is not as good as expected. only good thing is it is near the hotel and no need to walk to sunway pyramid to fill our stomach. the restaurant is pretty empty too at lunch time so we had all the attention from the waitress.
|moody boy, just woke up from morning nap and eating dim sum |

After lunch, walk around the hotel, kids played at the staircase and then went back to room, play a bit more before nap time
|playing near the pool|
|loves her balloon|
|also playing balloon|
After exploring the hotel, its nap time.. and then shower time...
|wrap up like a little baby after shower|
After the kids had a quick shower, we went to ole ole bali in sunway pyramid for dinner. the dinner was really good!!! We had some grilled seafood and a platter. Kids had grilled salmon with fries.
|grilled salmon, chips are rather spicy |
|bali trio platter- can share for 3-4 person as starter|
|nasi campur- mixture of grilled seafood and chicken|
After dinner, walk around sunway pyramid. Went to Popular and buy a few books, some short stories for girl bedtime story and a step by step drawing. We also takeaway starbucks cake and coffee then head back to hotel.
Kids play for a while more then sleeping time :)
|more play time before bedtime|
And some "us" time, chilling and enjoying cake from Starbucks!
Tomorrow will be going to Genting for more fun!
