First boating experience

Ethan, Darling and I have never experienced boating anywhere. We frequent Genting Outdoor Theme Park like monthly but never tried boating there due to Ethan not being tall enough until recently when he finally exceeded the minimum height requirement. Excitedly he told the father he wanted to go for it and so they did. They queued for half an hour (or more) before it was finally their turn.

The Daddy helped the lil’ one with the life jacket first and then it was the lil’ one’s turn to help the Daddy. Excellent teamwork displayed by these two! :D

And then they paddled and paddled. Later it was only the Daddy paddling as the lil’ one got tired.
They enjoyed their very first boating experience very much until …

Well… in the end I am the only one who is still without any boating experience and I can bet that the next time, it will be ME and Ethan paddling while the Daddy waits and take pictures :P

Too bad that the Outdoor Theme Park will be closed effective 31 August 2013 to make way for the world’s FIRST ever Fox Studio Theme Park up here in Genting (though I’m excitedly waiting for it) I’ll just have to go boating somewhere else then :)

    We went up on Sunday but didn’t go outdoor theme park coz the skies looked gloomy. So we ended up going to the indoor theme park..Cheh..didn’t rain also. -___- never go boating when you were younger or still dating before?

    • //

      When we were there oso it was extremely cloudy and foggy but we bought the outdoor tickets nevertheless. Sejuk giler but it was FUN! :D

  • //

    Lemme guess. You didn’t get on because you weren’t tall enough to ride. XD

    • //

    Hahahaha…We went boating during the weekend too at the Summer Palace. It was also the first time that we took both Ryan and Chenya for doing the paddling boat. After 30 minutes, we actually found out that the boat has no rudder and we could not steer the boat in any direction except the direction the waves took us….Could not get back to the pier and had to call emergency number and be towed back…HAHAHA….what an experience….!

    • //
