Puff the Magic Dragon...

hehehe I feel like I need to 'puff the magic dragon' to keep up, or slow down with all that has been happening.

We got out to One World Hotel in one piece, checked in at about 2 pm, took the kids out to lunch. BAH.. Bambam is one hyper kid! 2 hours of DRAGGING, PULLING, YELLING, TREATENING him around through the shops, we decided to go back to the room and bath them, plus we were Tired!!! Gosh, how do parents take their kids out shopping?!?! It's totally impossible!!

By the time we noticed the time, it was 6:45pm!! We were suppose to grab the kids some dinner b4 we take the hour's drive out the the airport. Their plane is to arrive around 8pm. So we packed the kids, went downstairs, got some MacD's nuggets, Murphy's law, there HAD to be a long, loooong queue. We finally got the the car by 7:30pm, packed the kids in and off we went....

Maddog was pretty confident about getting to the airport, he had asked the concierge at the hotel. 'Thou he was given the 'Malaysian directions', he thought he would just remember the big names like 'NKVE', 'Klang','KLIA'. We thought 'Ok, this is the big city, there HAVE to be road signs showing the way to KLIA' .. well, wasn't long till we were lost in Klang somewhere, heading back back up NORTH! Pretty much on the way HOME! Not home as in the hotel we were staying at, but home as in HOME, where our house is! PANIC Stations, I mean, Petrol station! to ask for directions. We had to stop in 2 b4 we finally saw a signboard with the words 'KLIA'. And then it was foot the the pedal, 140 km/hr to the airport! Got there 8:50pm. Not very nice to leave his parents sitting in the arrival lounge, after a 10 hour flight, with no way of contacting us. Thank goodness the flight was delayed 20 mins, so we were EARLY. Going back to the hotel was totally easy. Maybe it's a conspiracy to hold ppl back in Malaysia?? hehehe

Anyway, was suppose to meet up with some friends before we head back home, somehow, didn't manage to do anything at all. Think we were all pretty tired and jet lagged! DIDN'T even finish IKEA!! Shocking!!! lol

Anyway.. I'm trying to finish my last paper for Nutritional Therapy, YUP still haven't been able to finish it yet!! Argh.. got to get back to it...

You need a neck brace? I got whip lash just trying to keep up while reading. Your post has convinced me that I will not rent a car in Malaysia. No way. Have to find my way in a strange land while driving on the opposite side of the road I am accustomed to. Recipe for disaster.

You don't have leg irons for the kids? Worked great for mine. :P Don't I wish I had them back then.
