A Long Walk

So what did we do during the last Labour’s Worker’s Day holiday?  We wanted to bring Jonathan boy to a place where he can run around and get wild without us tailing behind him which also means that we can keep and eye on him while we sit back and enjoy the sunny day. 😛  

And so we ended up at Taman Pertanian Bukit Cahaya (previously known as Bukit Cheraka) and Wet World Shah Alam.  Darling wants to see how much Bukit Cahaya has changed after 10 years and I want to bring Jonathan for a bicycle ride. And we thought a dip in the water will be satisfying after being under the hot sun and so we decided to go to the Wet World Shah Alam.

Here are some photos to share and more photos were posted in Facebook.

That’s baby cocoa. So many ripe ones not being harvested and got eaten by squirrels. I am so tempted to pluck the ripe ones to eat.  Those were the days when I helped my parents in the orchard planted with cocoa and banana trees.

We were proud of Jonathan as he is full of energy. He walked with us without whining much. He did asked us to carry once a while but we diverted his attention. Whenever he was tired, he stopped and squat/sit on the ground. 

Both Darling and I will continue to walk, pretending not noticing him, but he didn’t fall into our tricks.  He knows Daddy and Mommy won’t leave him there. And so we encouraged him to stand and continue walking. 

At certain juncture, we will carry him as he deserved to be carried after a long walk by himself.

Half way the walk, he was really restless and he slept in Daddy’s arm. He missed the animal farm and bicycle ride so that means, we are going to be back there again!

With body full of sweat, we headed to Wet World Shah Alam for a dip. More of for Jonathan to enjoy the waters. No pic as I don’t have a water proof camera. Entrance per adult is RM10 and children is RM7  (free for those below certain height). We find it reasonable if you are looking for a water place for the kids and not expensive. But let me warn you that if you are looking for extreme activities like what you have in Sunway Lagoon, this is not the place for you.  They do have but not only a few. And also the children slides are not well maintained. We did not complain about it because all we want is just a water place for Jonathan to play by himself and of course, not expensive.

We had a fruitful weekend and how I wish for more!

    Nature walk is always a good experience for the children. I just went to Taiping Zoo.

    Btw, don’t let Jon sit on the road especially if the road is hot, later get red hot bumps.
