A trip to the beach

Another reason I love going back to Kuantan is the beautiful Telok Chempedak beach. We will normally go for a stroll at the beach area after stuffing ourselves silly with keropok lekor. However, we have never really taken Yiu Yiu to the sandy beach and into the water. Mummy is to be blamed as I always forget to pack along her swimsuit or a change of clothes for a dip in the sea.

Last weekend, again we were unprepared for the beach but we decided to just let her walk barefooted on the sand and have the wave splash onto her feet. However, the little 'yim chim' princess didn’t quite like the feel of sand beneath her feet and refused to walk and insisted to be carried. She even refused to stand in the water, which was surprising as she simply loves water. She can spend hours in the pool and in the shower but she just refused to stand in the sea. We spent about 15 minutes in the water and she was busy watching other children playing in the sea, but still refused to be put down. She was contented staying high above the ground without touching the sand or the water. Looks like we gotta find some tricks to make her enjoy the beach in the future.
