Haj season is over and Henna is often given as a souvenirs to relatives and friends.
Henna is a colouring made from Henna leaves. Traditionally, you pluck some Henna leaves, pound it and add vinegar/oil. Place the pounded mould on your hair or fingers, leave it overnight for long lasting effect.
This Henna is handy, it comes in tube form, like a tooth paste, just black-red colour. You squeeze small amount on your fingernails, let it dry 30 minutes to one hour. Wash it off - simple!
We always have dinner buffet at Crowne Plaza. It is value for money buffet compare to other places. Since it is still Christmas season, restaurant offers Turkey roast for buffet. Both my dad and mom jumped for the thigh - it is huge!
This is Nurd's first time and he was amazed with the seafood selections. He bravely tried oyster !
Most of us had fun eating ABC and ice cream !
One thing for sure, we ate and ate till the restaurant closes - HAHA!
It was a great timing - there was not much crowd and the weather is kind. We get to buy tickets at a discount if we produce our mykad. And we were given a cool water resistant wrist "watch" instead the norm wrist band.
Upon entry, no food or drink is allowed, if you have water bottle, you have to empty them first. There are water cooler at the park for you to replenish your water bottle.
We first tried the merry-go-round ride. It was my first (as an adult, never ride one when Im small) and first for the kids. Kids love it, I felt dizzy a bit.
Then Zied (my sister) tried the boat-swing that swung 360 degree! Zied's face was first flush red, then pink pale but she turn out fine after the ride.
After the dry park, we rushed to wet park to enjoy the swim. The best part is when we rented a double-float and all 5 adults, 2 kids have a ride in the moving-stream. It was fun fun fun wet wet wet !!!
Suddenly, lightning strike and all visitors are rushed to safety. It was fun fun fun.
Next time (if there is one), we plan to go sky glyding and more dry park rides !
We were so excited to visit the Science centre, no doubt they had all the gadget / technlogy / some interactive games but the place is POORly maintained! Dust here and there, carpet is stained, some games are not functioning, no helpers and worst still no sanitizer!
Being kids, they just ran here and there, try this and that, touch here and there and had fun. As a parent, i see red alarm "cleanliness".
This centre is free admission but then again, it is national property, someone should take care the property.
p/s: Petrosains is sooo much better, though you need to pay a small fee, it is worth the visit as it is clean, there are helpers around and gadgets are working well.
