Her scraped knees
First day of CNY was spent visiting a temple, followed by cendol and rojak as the famous Mustafa Cendol.

In the evening, the girls went out with their cousins for another round of keropok, and a short visit to the Teruntum Zoo, leaving mummy to enjoy a short siesta J
CNY will not be complete for the kids without fireworks, and we bought some just because.
On the morning of the second day, their 叔叔 took them on a walk around the kampong and the girls enjoyed themselves looking at a variety of plants and insects (pictures below taken by Yiu Yiu).
They even spotted a crocodile
As the cousins were due to return to Singapore the next morning, the kids wanted to go to the beach together so off we went. The girls just LOOOVVVEEE the beach and sea.
After dinner, we celebrated MIL’s birthday with a cake at home.
We attended a friend’s open house on the third day and I saw my first lion dance for the year.
On the fourth day we made the long journey back to Ipoh, and had dinner with my side of the family, followed by more fireworks.
We went back to KL on the fifth day, after making a visit to the now touristy Ipoh Old Town and Concubine’s Street (details coming up in the next post).
