Last two weeks, we plan to to go Avillion PD since we’ve been hearing good comments about the place. Was extremely delighted when syauQi ajak pegi but after seeing the weather forecast saying every petang hujan, we hesitate to go or not to go. Of coz deep inside i was screaming to go…haha. tapi was worried if hujan, ha i pulak kena scream ngan syauqi “TOLD YOU!” . So i listened to him and cancel the plan.
It was Friday, picked up the kids as usual and when we returned home, syauQi said “you, pack the bags!” a lil confused…he continued “we r going to avillion”. i wasnt sure he was for real or not…so muke masih tenang tak tunjuk lg gembira. i asked him further details, oh apparently rooms dah buat reservation, pegi after his Friday Prayers. And another surprise…bro and sis-in-law coming along…supercool! that’s 4 extra hands!!! But since they need to be home next day by noon to attend wedding, we decided to go on separate cars.
Kids were so happy when i told them we were going to the beach. Prior to that, athirAh been wearing her swimsuit at home almost everyday for the past one month, sbb nk pegi beach. ape die ingat beach tu belakang rumah athirah? Elder 2 insists on wearing their swimming attire from home. Ha dlm keta tertanya2, mane beach, mane beach. Lil did they know it will be an hour plus journey.
Reached Avillion at 5pm, thought we were there way passed the check-in time (3pm) but to our surprise rooms were not yet ready. Syauqi requested for late check-out in return, we then got a late check-out at 2pm instead of 12pm. athirAh dah restless nk jump into the water already. Once we got the room key, we head straight to the room ,perform our solat and to the beach we go!
It was priceless seeing the joy in the kids’ face. Priceless. Nothing beats that feeling. In fact i even tweeted then, “nothing beats the feeling seeing the joy in the kids’ face. not even a spa session” athirAh keep on saying “athirah at the beach” uZAir was jumping about on the sand while hArith busy digging. uZAir was very confident to masuk air. Yes i know the water is not clear nor clean…but for kids, they are totally fine with it. They enjoyed it. (hmm wait till the see the sea water at the island, they might not want the sea at PD then…hahah)
Didn’t bring my camera as i wasnt sure will i have enough hands to even handle the kids ape lagi camera. So all photos taken from bro’s compact camera. Had problem taking photos of the kids, they were everywhere….
uWais had his first experience with the sand,
Bro and wife rent the canoe…hArith gave it a try, happily singing “row row row your boat….”
and uwais felt asleep after much of sand play
Then ajak kids pegi pool pulak. tp ni budak taknk kuar dr air
at the pool, athirAh turun the water slide definitely more than 2otimes during the 40mins period. nonstop turun slide. It was already maghrib, had problem getting her out. Bro had to dukung her to the room while she meronta2 “taknk balik , taknak balik”. For dinner few people gave us suggestion where to eat, but we didnt want to stress up ourselves kuar makan with 4 kids, thus we ordered room service. boleh makan dgn tenang. Oh my sis-in-law came well prepared, with a big tupperware of cut watermelon AND brownies!!! Heaven. We munched on those while waiting for the food to sampai.
After we had our meal, we ordered vanila ice cream to go with the homemade brownies…marvelous 😀
Next morning after breakfast, we went to the petting zoo and had another round of swimming for the kids. Everyone had a good time, even mommy. And best part of all…the dad remain cool all the time. You know when bapak budak jadi cranky, it can be worst than 4 kids cranky…hihi. Thus a BIG thanks to the dad for brining us and for being cool and calm through out :D. We love you 😉
