Holiday Throwback: Onboard the KD Rahmat Warship

One of the highlights of going back to Mama’s hometown of Sitiawan is the opportunity to visit the Lumut beaches. The last time we were there back in February, we were all in for a treat because not only did we get to see Lumut beach, we even managed to go onboard a real-life warship!

The KD Rahmat Maritime Museum has been docked along the Lumut beach coast for quite a few years now, but we never bothered to check it out till this year. The strange thing is that from afar, it really looks kinda haunted with very few crowds, no attractive signboards, souvenir stalls, etc.

I remembered that evening when Papa and Ah Koong took all three of us to Lumut when we all decided to FINALLY check out this warship…

The whole experience was really fun, actually. We got to move about in narrow spaces along the ship, try out the ship bunk beds, check out the ship dining area, gun area, lookout areas, etc.

And besides, there’s a cool garden/park where we could run around after we disembarked from the warship….

And oh yeah….did I mention the beach view is simply breathtaking?

Overall, an incredibly awesome experience we had onboard a real-life warship! If only the powers that be put in more effort to make this attraction more visible to everyone!

Holiday Throwback: The X-Wing Experience

Sometime late last year, we were travelling back to KL from our holiday break. When we had reached the roads of KL, Papa brought up a suggestion to swing by Mid Valley. Apparently the X-Wing (from Star Wars…duh!) was on exhibition for the very last day!

When we reached the concourse, there was already a queue, but not as crazy as when the X-Wing first landed more than a month before.

We quickly got into the queue and stood in awe and admiration for the huge X-Wing before us!

Yep….Papa seemed more excited than any of us. Hahaha…

While waiting for our turn, we managed to take a few shots with the amazing plane in the background…

After a well-worth-the-wait 20 mins or so, we made it to the cockpit of the X-Wing!!

Yes, Papa too…:-P

One last photo with the X-Wing before we left…

And that’s it! An incredible experience and certainly well worth the detour! 😀

Charming Cruise

During our school holidays last month (Oh how I’ve missed them already!!!! Sigh!), we did many projects and activities together – too many pictures that we didn’t have time to post them up!

Anyway, today’s blog posting is about a lakeside attraction that is found quite near our very own neighbourhood – The Mines Cruise! After a movie at the Mines, Papa took all three of us to sign up for the Mines Kids program membership, which came with a goodie bag each, as well as free tickets to go on the Mines Cruise! Woo hoo!

The cruise departs from the dock located INSIDE the Mines Shopping Mall itself – goes out and circles the lakeside next to the mall, and finally returns to the mall – clocking a total of about half an hour.

I was pleasantly surprised at how scenic the lake next to the Mines is. We even managed to catch a glimpse of several lakeside animals like storks, ducks, etc. Only thing we forgot to bring along were some bread or animal snacks to feed ’em animals. Sigh….next round then. Hehe.

Here are the photos taken during the cruise on that lovely afternoon…
