Five days holiday and I can’t go anywhere *bawls*

You know hor, last time got some mamas pissed me so much because whenever I took my kids anywhere, overseas and otherwise, they will pok-pek about how tough it is to travel with little ones. It is like the world is ending to them if they have to travel. Meanwhile, for me, it is sap-sap sui.

It is always good to get the babies to fly, cruise, travel by car or whatever from as young as four months old because once they are used to it, they won’t be the katak who gets frightened over every little thing. Now, looking back, I am glad I had taken my kids from Europe to Australia to parts of Asia.

Right now, with them in school and involved in all sort of activities, going anywhere on family holiday is like trying to arrange an appointment with George Bush. Our schedules almost never agree.

So, tomorrow till Wednesday is a holiday for all of them. The hubby is taking annual leave on Monday. So, great, with so many days, shouldn’t we be flying off to Bali, Koh Samui or some islands in Sabah? Or how about Hongkong Disneyland? Or check out Australia? Well, frankly, we cannot afford flying as a family now because it means four adults tickets and two 75% price children ticket. If you are talking about those no-frills airlines, then, it is six adult fares ticket. Add two hotels rooms per night and wah piang! Enough to fund a college education already.

Never mind, we want to bring toddler to see Happy Feet (penguins lah) and take a ride on the cable car in Langkawi. Also, he hasn’t fly since he was 8 months old and being on a plane is very thrilling for him, right? And I could get a few bottles of liquor tax free. But no……#2 has some training camp. #1 said if we are not going to stay in Langkawi for three days, he is not coming along. Atm said Langkawi can go for day trip. I said I am not going to deal with car ride with a pukey toddler. Ting-tong-ting-tong….

Now, I am not sure what I am going to do for the next five days. How lah? Never mind, I do marathon paid posts. Lagi kaya. Blek! Maybe I leave #2 with my sis and we just fly off to Langkawi. Or is that a little cruel? Sigh….
