Who's next to climb up the ladder?
Some complained about the heat (city people, sigh) so next we just went to Ipoh Parade. Lunch at Yum Yum (food is all right, but I'm sure there are better places). Then back for an afternoon nap. There are restrictions when travelling with a big group comprising small kids, so we just took it easy. And ate a lot. Dinner we went to Gluttons Square hawker centre - I enjoyed most of the food we ordered! My kids, who aren't all that interested in food, weren't too happy.
When told we were going out and it was for dinner:
JE: Mummy, I'm not hungryyyy
SE: Mummy, I'm fullll
Later that night, when I asked them what they wanted for breakfast, this is what I got:
SE: I don't want to eat any more
Can't be arranging foodie trips with these two, sigh.
Next day, went to Sam Poh Tong. This time, was determined to take a family photo! Here:
The kids had a blast feeding the animals. For turtles, the traditional 'kangkong' (watercress?) and baby tomatoes were on sale.
Girls feeding turtles
Turtles prefer baby tomatoes to 'kangkong'
Then bought food for the next type of animal...
This was a good place for the kids! We went to buy snacks after that and then lunch. Lunch was disappointing though. We were aiming for Nam Heong, but it was packed. We chose a random shop nearby and ended up with really lousy food. Uggh in Ipoh which is known for good food! In hindsight we should just have driven off somewhere. Oh well, next time.
I wanted to try the famous tau foo fah. Hmm read from some blogs that a bowl costs 80sen... well our packed versions were RM2.50 each. Which is a pretty steep inflation rate! My kids refused more food. Aiyoo.
Don't want food, please go away
OK, so when's our next family trip... :)
