First of all, it has been 2 freakin’ years. Second of all, Emma’s first appearance on daddy’s blog, yay! I think I wanna blog again. Pretty serious about it but consistency is my concern. Pray for me!
So, last Saturday Maisarah and I decided to pay Mitsui Outlet Park, Sepang a visit and see it for ourselves. For me, it was a good first impression. I told Maisarah it felt a little bit like overseas standard. Maisarah replied, “Mungkin sebab banyak brand mahal-mahal kot sebab tu you rasa macam tu.” LOL. Because the building is huge, it automatically makes it sort of kids friendly place. Why? Because your kids can run about. Cons? You have to run and chase them haha. On a serious note though, please be careful because there are lots of people. If you tengah mabuk shopping, memang lupa bebudak ni semua unless you have someone to entertain them while you’re shopping.
I didn’t shop that day. Couldn’t shop with kids around. Nanti you tend to make rush decision and end up buying something you don’t even need but you buy it because you’re in a rush. Make sense? On the other hand, Maisarah thinks Mitsui is not a “fun” place to shop in terms of pricing. She thinks takde la murah sangat and it is just like a big mall with big sale. Not like an outlet. An outlet should offer crazy price. Even JPO (Johor Premium Outlet) is cheaper. At Mitsui, the cheapest shirt you can get is RM 29 but JPO ada yang from RM 5. Mungkin ade yang murah we all tak jumpa. Next trip we go without kids ahaks.
All in all, not too bad la. I wish I took more photos tapi nak handle camera lagi, budak-budak lagi, itu ini, memang ribut! Sesape yang ade anak tau lah macam mane ahaks. But again, kalau asyik bagi alasan jer, sampai bila pun takde gambar kan? A for effort!
Bapak ah dah pukul 4 pagi wei. Aku nak tido! Bye!
It started when 4 of us were too busy with life and had no time to think like we did 13 years back. Our WhatsApp group remained silent for a few months. One fine day, Achik (plum guy red shirt) broke the silence. He said, “lamo tok kukuk group nih”. It means, it’s been a while since our last conversation in the group. Then suddenly one by one started to respond Achik. Then Along (the kopiah guy) came out with this idea. He said, “why don’t we take a break and go do something out of our comfort zone”. Since he lives in Marang, Terengganu he suggested candat sotong activity.
At first I was like, what the hell is candat sotong (not that I’m a bimbo). Then I started googling and thinking this is not bad at all. Brand new experience for all of us. So we started looking the right dates. Alang (the nelayan look) was a bit reluctant to join at first considering he is always busy and workaholic. So, 3 of us had to convince Alang that this would be the best thing to do in conjunction with our reunion too. The last time we did something together was 13 years ago and that’s it.
In 2 days, we found the right dates, everyone agreed and decided to give it a shot. The plan was so random that when I told my wife I was going for candat sotong in a week time she laughed so hard. I still don’t get it until today.
So, the package is you get a boat, their people will take you to the ocean and help you with the activity. Although you have zero knowledge, it’s not a problem because these people will advice what to do. We took off from Marang jetty and overnight in the middle of the ocean. The next day we packed up and went straight to Pulau Kapas for a relaxation. We were very fortunate because the weather was perfect. The photos tell it all.
Man, I’m writing this at 2.40 am in the morning and thinking to stop right here. Wish I had more energy to write the details of the journey but all I could think of now is sleep. Hope you enjoy the photos and if you love them, it is available for purchase as well.
Too bad men were not invited. Too bad most girls were gone sooner. But I’m pretty sure they all had a great time together.
