Kampung Life

We were in Malacca (my hometown) over the weekend. It is always nice to be back home, being pampered by mom and dad :P The best part about being in my parent’s place is the freedom to explore. Unlike in the city where the roads are filled with cars and more, my parent’s place has a private road that we can roam freely. 
Another thing that I love being in my parent’s place is that Darling is ‘forced’ to relax and do nothing. Back at home he is always either working or doing something. Here… he gets to bond with Ethan :D
Cycling together…
Bird watching together… You know what are they looking at? Some chicks crossing the road! @_@
Ethan enjoying some pure childhood time :D
And then they went ‘rempit-ing’ at turtle speed :P
Accompanied by these 3 Minah Rempits! (turtle speed too :D)
Just… don’t do this at home! Better still… just don’t DO THIS! Always wear your helmets ON no matter what! @_@ Tsk tsk… 

P/S: I deliberately published the pics in Sephia for the ‘ol skul’ feel :D
