Hello hello! School holiday’s over and it’s back to the grind today. We went back to my hometown in Malacca last Saturday and came back on Sunday afternoon. It was a very short trip to attend my cousin’s first born daughter’s first birthday. We came back to PJ early to avoid the expected jam on the highway. Thank goodness we were not caught in any jam to and fro. 

Though we were in Malacca less than 24 hours, we managed to spend some quality time with my family, cousins, uncles and aunts. Ayden was in a fairly good mood this time around. He allowed people to carry him. During our last trip back he refused to let anyone carry him but this time he’s okay.

Grandpa and Grandma

My parents and Ayden. 

No, it was not that easy. Ayden did not just want to sit there on my father’s lap quietly. He made the Grandpa walk with him earlier in the morning until my father got a backache. Hehe.

Grandpa 4

Besides my Dad, Ayden also got my eldest sister to walk with him :P


Early morning foot reflexology with Grandpa ^_^ But this boy is adventurous. He wants more than this… 

Grandpa 1

Look where they ended up walking. Lol! All the way out to the road! >_< My back ache just looking at them!

Grandpa 2

See! My father kenot tahan ody! Haha.

Grandpa 5

Brought him home to change but Ayden still wants to step on stones so my Dad lets him.

Grandpa 3

Ethan who was eating breakfast, got distracted. He can’t wait to go out to join them. 

No pictures of the birthday party though. I was too busy eating. Too much good food there. OK, that’s all for now. Need to go to bed now for tomorrow, the school rush begins…
