We took a 2.5hours flight but a 4 hour drive into Hua Hin. Thankfully, the girls were not really fighting in the van or else I really would have pengsaned!!
We are enjoying our stay, the girls loved the room with the mosquito net and all, making it look really romantic. We spent the entire morning soaking up the sun, though the water in the pool is a tad too cold for my liking.
Here's wishing one and all a very blessed X'mas and love, peace and joy throughout.
Here's my little one who turned 35 mths yesterday.... wearing my blond wig and posing...
She is certainly one character, this girl, a total contrast to Megan, but she has her own strengths and beauty. Highly independant and bossy( wonder where that came from? :P).....
This is a photo of the private kitchen that we went to last month, called Stella's Hideaway. Nice, isn't it? I am amazed how she managed to find a table that can fit 14 pax. My entire family should fit comfortably there.
Megan's school organized a Christmas Walkathon to the Peak this year. I volunteered to accompany the class but boy was it a big big mistake. Today's weather was unbelievably cold and windy. I almost died at the Peak because the children were seated like this and were not allowed to move much. And because the P1s and the kindy children are too young, they did the short cut walk to the Peak which only took 10 minutes. Megan asked me," Huh? This is a walkathon meh?" We were at the Peak from 10-11.30am and the wind just kept blowing and blowing nonstop. I think I turned blue.
Here's a pic of Megan and her best friend in class, Paige.(behind her)
I took a cab home with Megan after the Walkathon and I slept in the cab all the way. Was supposed to meet claudiacheng, but I felt so shitty that I had to cancel our date and I slept somemore for another 2 hours! Gosh... I better rest or else I will fall sick before I head to Hua Hin.
I can't wait to get out of this miserable winter and get some sun and sea and sand. It's now 15 degrees and it will drop to 11 on the day we leave for HH. Brrr....
