Boys' Day Out

On Monday Dec 21st, Zaini was on leave but I wasn't. He decided to take Raimie out for a splashing wet time at a nearby waterpark called Desa Waterpark. Raimie wanted to go to Sunway Lagoon, but as he just wanted to splash around, Desa Waterpark was a better choice (and cheaper too!)

So, after sending me to work and having their breakfast of roti canai and teh tarik at a nearby Mamak, off they went to Desa Waterpark.
In front of Desa Waterpark's entrance. When the two boys got there, there weren't too many visitors yet so Zaini managed to park almost right in front of the entrance.

If you want to go to the park, do note that the park opens from 12pm - 6pm on Monday to Friday and 10am - 6pm on weekends and public holidays. The park closes on Wednesday.
Entrance ticket. RM20 per adult and RM14 for children. Much cheaper than Sunway Lagoon, especially if you don't care much for the dry park rides and all you want to do is go on water rides and slide around.
A couple of photo inside the park, before Raimie got wet and wild. Not many visitors yet, but there were plenty of visitors in no time. It is a school holiday, after all.
Lunch was simply fried rice with hotdogs and Pepsi. Two fried rice, two hotdogs on sticks and Pepsi = RM12.00. Oklah, for park food.

Raimie had so much fun there, he wanted to go again. I think the next time, we'll opt Sunway Lagoon out in favour of Desa Waterpark.

They got back at 4.00pm and head straight to Gardens Mall to wait for me. Being early, they spent almost an hour at Starbucks. Did they complain about having to wait for me? No, they didn't. The reason:

Two busy boys engrossed with their games. They had a new game to play on their Nintendo DSi , hence the obsession of playing them all the time.
So much concentration...

After waiting for my two boys finish up playing their games, we head to Tony Roma's for dinner. While waiting for our orders to arrive, the two boys whipped out their games again. I don't mind. I got my camera to play with. :) So busy was Raimie, I resorted to feeding him his carrot sticks.
Our dinner. I had Asian salad with crispy chicken, half sized. I always, always have problem with American portion. Even a half-sized salad is waaaaay too much and too big for me. I ended up packing half of the salad back. The salad was nice and crunchy and the chicken, yummy and crispy. Paired with a sweet and spicy dressing, it was excellent.

Zaini and Raimie had their usual. Zaini went for the full rack ribs and Raimie went for the beef ribs from the kid's set menu. Unfortunately, no free meal for Raimie that night as it was during school holiday.

All in all, a great day for Zaini and Raimie. For me, I had a great dinner.


  1. Yeah, Desa Waterpark is the better choice if you just wanna splash around. You can also try wet world in Shah Alam, pretty cool too :D

    Happy Holidays :D

  2. @wenn,
    same to you too! BTW, just got my present from the post office yesterday. Sorry it took so long, didn't have the time to go pick them up. :D

  3. @Nick,

    Maybe next time, can try Wet World too.

    Happy Holidays!

  4. Aww, so sweet! They took pictures for your blog.

    Yeah, ribs are my fav too. Happy hols, Lina.

  5. @Happysurfer,
    Aren't they. My two boys completely support my obsession.

    Happy holidays to you too. :)

  6. Sunway Lagoon was usually packed years ago (now too eh?) when I brought my son for visits. We didn't have such a huge theme park in Singapore then.

    Happy holidays!

  7. @ECL,
    and now, we can go to Singapore for a rollicking good theme park time.

    yes, Sunway Lagoon is always packed come weekend and school holiday.

  8. Those games can really keep the boys busy, can't they? Good thing they had them while waiting. My boys usually will call every 5 mins if they have to wait for me :)

  9. @Evan's Mom,
    You're still up?

    Yeah, otherwise they'll be harassing me to go off early if not for the games. :)

  10. Yup, just finished giving the baby his last supper, lol.

  13. What a nice outing for daddy & son! So there must be another companion right 'coz both daddy & Raimie playing games in the pix@Starbucks while waiting for you?

  14. @Dora,
    No, that's just two of them. I took the photo when I got to Starbucks. They were so engrossed, they didn't even look up. Imagine that!

  15. your boys are way tooooo busy Lina! Just like hubs when he's infront the computer playing too! Just like you I also play with my camera =)

  16. @Ayie,
    Ha true! They become way too busy once they have their games on their hand. :D

    Happy New Year to you and family, Ayie! :)
