We knew that the traffic at the immigration would be horrendous having experienced that during the National Day long weekend. Ended up, we took half day leave to beat the traffic. We got the kids from school, lunched, changed and wash their stinky feet before heading for Malaysia. Yes, the kids' feet... dont get me started. They almost knocked us out when they took off their socks and shoes in the car during the last road trip where we started directly from school. Just imagine keeping a car load of salted cuttlefish. Eeeeewwww... My bro's family had to risk it to cross the custim in the evening with the youngest still in school till late afternoon.
All fingers and toes were crossed. While the Woodlands checkpoint was closer to the airbnb, Daddy Lim was much more comfortable with the 2nd link. Phew, we could see the custom when we joined the Q.
Our airbnb this time was a double story house. It was conveniently 6 mins drive to the Aeon mall. The house was huge with 4 bedrooms. However, it was aged with old furniture and weak aircon in the rooms. There was no aircon in the living room but fortunately, the heat in the living room wasnt overbearing despite the hot weather.
The Aeon mall was a few storeys big.
The Rocky Basecamp was similar to what we have in Kallang but lesser walls. It was much cheaper too. A 2-hour pass was only RM25 per kid with harness and shoes provided. My pocket was very happy.
It was fairly empty on a Thursday evening.
kids below 15yo. The place must be designed by parents for parents to know how tiring it is to wait for kids and therefore lined the waiting area with comfy bean bags. I swear Daddy Lim could fall asleep in that position.
There were 2 storeys and the 2nd floor was lined with more shorter walls.
We had dinner and some shopping before heading back to the airbnb at 9.30pm. The host had sent somebody to rectify the wifi. With wifi and great companion, the night was easy. In fact, we only went to bed after 11pm when our eyelids could no longer hold.
