I'm back!

Whew! After many days on the road, it was real tiring… more tiring than weekdays at office. My hubby complained that the holidays were spent driving, driving and driving only. Poor hubby, anyway we want to thank our man for his patience and obediently following our plans.

Glad to be back, got so much to blog about don’t know where to start. Okay I will start with this picnic trip last Saturday, we went with 7 other families (a real convoy) to Sg. Serdim somewhere in Kedah. It was about 1.5 hours drive from Penang, we went through the highway, the trunk road, the kampong road and the stone road (under construction), up the hill and down the narrow road and finally reached our picnic spot, a water fall……nice scenery, cool spot and icy water.





Everything was free, no parking fees, no toilet fees (I believe the attendants must be celebrating Raya at home, he he he) We took a stroll, more than 30 over of us, like a bunch of villagers visiting the city for the first time, we hoo hoo and ha ha… a nice escapee from the busy city life. Next we tried the tree top walk, a man built bridge encircling the water fall area and the height as high as the big old trees around the area, the walk took about 30 minutes and cost RM10 for adults. Since there are a bunch of kids with us, the kids got to walk for free (special Raya offer). It was real hot as it was reaching noon time, the day was sunny and everybody enjoyed the walk, certain portion of the bridge is quite swingy and sloppy, I and my daughters took some of the fallen dried big leaves to shade our face from the bright sunlight.



Next our stomachs were drumming, we helped ourselves with the many home cook food and then the kids changed into their swimming costumes and deep themselves into the icy water. They never complained! Kids simply love water no matter how cold it is. The picnic ended when it started to drizzle and within 5 minutes it was raining cats and dogs, we packed like thunder and took shelter in a shade nearby, we later start our journey back to the highway and lost our way (to Baling woh… asked some friendly villagers and headed back on track), reached hubby’s kampong at about 5.30 pm, real tiring but enjoyed our trip………….. next….. down memory lane… be sure to catch up… will share some light moments at my kampong….
