Shania in KL 3
I remembered it was two years ago when I posted Shania's trip - Shania in KL and Shania in KL 2 to Kuala Lumpur. This backpost of my recent trip to KL during the Merdeka Holidays last two weeks will be about her recent trip with me. I was going to be on duty for the Merdeka Event so I took the opportunity to bring my family along. And to make Datuk Tony Fernandez happy I traveled using Air Asia.
During this trip using Air Asia, I got to know that Not just Everybody, but even A Fly Can Fly free - that's Air Asia for you - Now Everything Can Fly! This fly from Kuching will get to try the Nasi Kandar at the Central Market KL!
Little Shania was especially anxious about the trip and we could not really get her to stay still as she ran the whole corners of the airport. Once inside the airplane, the colourful Air Asia brochures were also her favourite - but not mine as the prices of the items sold were inflated. A small aeroplane model which is the size of my finger costs about RM39 and I know she can break it up into pieces in just 5 minutes
But you have to salute the marketing strategies of the Air Aisa team. They will convince you that 'Consuming Maggie Mee at 18,000 ft above Sea Level' sounds kinda cool. It was not bad really, not that it tasted different - it allows you to boast to friends that you had Mee Maggie high in the Skies.
Upon arriving in Kuala Lumpur, Shania's first stop was her favourite place - MegaKidz at Mega Mall - a place she visited two years back. Of course at that time she was still three years old and there were many games she could not play. Now its different - she gets to try everything and I get to chase her about shouting 'You can't do this! You can't do that! Be Careful!' Surprisingly I was the only daddy following my little girl around as most of the other mummies and daddies were out shopping and the Filipino and Indonesian housemaids were the ones keeping me company.
And enables them to enjoy kiddies actvities in a safe and protected environment
Its a place to practice their artistic imagination too

It was fun really. She enjoyed the slides a whole lot. Its an advantage for Mega Mall to have Mega Kidz as it allows parents to drop off their children while they shop around. Its a wonder we do not have this closed kiddies playground in Sarawak. Most of the ones here are Family Entertainment outlets at shopping centres (Hock Lee Centre and Wisma Satok) - mostly 'alang-alang' or half hearted entertainment business with limited games. I hope some local entreprenuers take up this business one day.....
For me, I also got to meet up with Paul Albert (aka Pemancha in Rumahpanjai.Com), my Kuching buddy who got transferred to Kuala Lumpur. We were quite lucky that our favourite 'playground' can also be found in Kuala Lumpur, outside Coronade Hotel. Though there is no such thing as 10 for 3 like in Sarawak . The cost per bottle here ranges from RM9 during Happy Hours and about RM12 to RM15 during UnHappy Hours. But we did have enough *hic* while catching up on lost time. Cheers to you mate :)
