Again...Melaka 2013

Early this month during the Deepavali holiday, we brought our children to A Famosa Resort, again. The last time we went was after my confinement in 2009. I remember carrying Musyrif who was 6 weeks to Safari World. Now, having 4 kids to be taken care of is much more challenging. We spent 2 days at Mr.Hubby's brother's house @ MRSM Alor Gajah. On the first day we went to Safari and the second day we went to the Water World. I bought the tickets almost 3 months earlier, during the promotion in which I only spend RM20 per ticket instead of RM48. And no doubt it is worthwhile bringing the kids there. Although it was absolutely tedious, but we really enjoyed the time that we spent together. On the third night, we stayed overnight at Seri Malaysia Ayer Keroh. The last time I stayed at  Seri Malaysia was like 10 years ago and at that time the room rate was only rm90 per night stay. now it has cost rm230..wowww.....was surprised but I would rather just stay there instead of searching for other cheaper hotel. We also managed to try 2 famous Asam Pedas restaurants, both in Kota Laksamana.. Both offer  delicious and tasty range of asam pedas but I prefer the one called Asam Pedas Claypot. The Asam Pedas tetel was marvelous and delectable.

After two weeks time, again..I went to Melaka but this time without Mr.Hubby. My sister, Angah came by bus to Kuantan just to accompany me to Melaka.All of my children were happy to  have a trip again, especially when I told them that I we are going to stay at a hotel.  We spent 3 nights at Melaka, staying at Malacca Strait and Equatorial Hotel. Really appreciate my sis who has spent couple of days to look aftr my kids while I was attending the conference. With the accommodating facilities and services, Equatorial would be my choice if I were to come again. I am not happy to leave Mr.Hubby , but without choice I have to as he has his master classes in that particular week. And at the same time I need to attend the ICELT 2013- International Conference on English Language Teaching. The paper that I presented was on the 1st day, when the participants are still energetic and fresh with ideas. Guess somehow it's beneficial to prepare for my viva..After 3 nights, I stayed 1 night at Angah's house at Bukit Rambai and spend the rest of the week at my Mum's @ PD until Mr Hubby came by bus to bring us back to Kuantan.

Overall, I am really satisfied and grateful that I managed to present 2 papers at 2 different conference ; ICELT and SeLLT (by UMP). Apart from that, I completed 4 out of 7 session of my data collection. On top of that, I also brought my kids twice for a holiday which definitely was awesome and wonderful.
