So, how was your Chinese New Year long weekend? Great?
We head off to my hometown on Thursday, the morning of the first day of the new lunar year instead of joining the crowd and traffic the day before. We woke up early and set off at 6.30am and the road was quite clear that early except a bit of jam at the Karak Toll.
First order of business, before the trip - filling up the gas. The gas station was deserted!
The road between Bentong to Raub. See all the mist? Looks so mysterious.
Not relishing the jam with people rushing back home after the holiday, we decided to return to KL on Friday to avoid the rush and only spent a night in Raub. My sister also went back the same day because she had to go to work today. But even on Friday night, there was already quite a traffic in Karak Highway. I bet it's gonna get worse today and tomorrow!
Our decision to spend just a night of course is something Raimie was totally unhappy about. He is always reluctant to leave and I take it in a positive light. It is much better for him to love going "balik kampung" and spend time with his grandparents rather than being dragged kicking and screaming whenever we go "balik kampung".
He happily spent time tagging along his granddad, doing errands and pillion-ride granddad's motorbike even baby-sitting his young cousins. :-)
