School holidays! Buzeee! Noisy! but Happy!

Hubby took two days off yesterday and today. We went to Prai to claim my winning vouchers of RM500 SSF vouchers for the AJAX Fabuloso contest. Guess what? I only managed to spend RM200. The closing date to utilise the vouchers is April 2009. Means got one more chance to go Prai again to finish the vouchers.

Can't seem to choose what i really need as most of the items sold in the shop are more for decoration, glassware and ornaments which are not so "kids' proof" for my house with these 4 hyperactive musketeers.

Just managed to but some vase, flowers, hanging kitchen ornaments and a wedding glassware for my sister as a wedding gift.
Will post the photo later.

Meanwhile during the journey to Prai, we passed by Taiping for FOOD..and also went to this place called Bagan Ajam, Prai where there is a shabby hut named AH CHOONG by the sea side. We had some fried noodles and seafood. Very cheap and nice. The wind was strong and refreshing. The view was great. As usual the kids loved it. Took my parents along. My dad enjoyed local vacation rather than going overseas as he has osteoarthritis (wear and tear) of his knee joints and has problem walking.
Yet another simple, economy and fun school holiday vacation. By the way, it was only a day trip as we wanted to save on accomodation (Remember..mommy still on unpay leave..need to jaga (care) for the pocket a bit!) sorry kids!

Here's the slide pics:

Hi Renet13, wow, you have 4 kids, huh?
There's a lovely lady blogger who has 4, all girls, youngest about a year.
And only last week I learned another lady blogger has 8 kids, 6 girls!!
So I award the one with 4 girls a silver medal, the one with 6, a gold medal, ha ha. (Been watching Olympics!)

I love Taiping, the lake gardens, Maxwell Hill and especially that corner makan shop beside a big tall tree...this back in the 70's...and the poh pia there, as well oh chien was out of this world.
I would order 6 poh pias and a big plate of oh chien as well a plate of char kueh teow, ha ha.

And yes, I remember Prai too....Seberang Prai I think. Wonder whether the shop selling fish head curry still there? Ha ha.
I guess I have eaten most every corner of Malaysia old days.
I posted several postings re dating girls and going up to Maxwell hill those that place too.
You have a great week Renet13, Lee.
