Avillion Port Dickson 14-15 March 2010

We're backkk!! I am all burnt and my skin getting itchy already (from forgetting to put on sunscreen) and sore muscle somemore (from running around, not swimming he he). Avillion was beautiful.. amidst lush greenery.

Sampai PD around 12-ish noon. Masih awal so we had lunch first. Avillion full house the night before so no luck checking in early. While waiting for our room, we had fruit punch (welcoming drinks - free, which Iman kata tak sedap) and the kids were restless as they wanted so much to dip in the pool (they actually did that before our room was even ready).

lobby area

Iman.. komplen fruit punch tak sedap.. betuah betul...



Since I did my booking on the very last minute, I took whatever that was available (that option exclude their suite by the way). Masa nak book tu, only ONE room was left so imagine tangan makcik menaip selaju mungkin to secure that LAST room. Got it, not knowing it was a split level room. Fes taim makcik dapat bilik hotel dabel stori u olss! Padan le masa masuk tu, ala-ala terkujat pasal tak jumpa katil he he, nampak living area ajek.

Anyway, why Avillion? We could only afford a one-night, cuti-wise and money-wise. Avillion has things that were just enough for that kind of period of time, without you having to go around town. They have 3 pools i.e. 1 kiddy, 1 pool biasa with 1.2m depth and a lap pool untuk mereka yang pandai berenang. Being me, tau la kat mana I ended up at kan. My kids spent most of their time in the pool. Macam tak reti reti nak naik ke darat adoiyaiii anak-anak oii. Hak kenit sekali tu ada eksiden on the first day. He wanted a ball so Tebby bought him one. Terlepas pandang just few seconds only, he was nowhere in sight, only the ball left (baca dan bayangkan ala-ala cerita omputih u ols). Dia terjatuh dalam kiddy pool, I guess from chasing his ball. Kalau ikut height memang dia tenggelam but miraculously, he stayed afloat kicking in the water. Of course la kalau biarkan dia lemas but for that few seconds, alhamdulillah dia timbul. He drank a bit of pool water (and everything that came with it euwwww) and had a nightmare malam tu. Kept on terjaga-jaga and menangis sekuat hati. Adam, Ummi pun nightmare di siang hari sebenarnya masa nampak Adam terkapai-kapai menendang-nendang dalam air tu.





Kakak missed Little Chef activity (pasal sibuk sgt berendam dalam pool), by which the kids can join a baking session. Panjang muncung dia sebab frust. Lagi frust when after an hour, the products were brought out and the kids involved got to admire their work. Petang tu, we took leisure walk to the other end of Avillion where we stumbled upon a petting zoo. Adam was sooooo excited. Whatmore at the end of our walk, terserempak dengan peacock yang sombong. Sukalah anak-anak ku. Terubat hati sapa-sapa yang tak sempat join Little Chef tadi tu he he. In Avillion, they let peacock and peahen roam free there. When we came near, it made angry sound. The petting zoo opened at 10.00 a.m the next day so berkerumun le anak-anak (dan mak pak yang sebok memfoto anak masing-masing, termasuk le makcik) memberi makan (sambil mengharrass pon ada) rabbits, ayam and tortoise.


look at how excited he is!


hemm... stop and smell the flower they say huh Adam?


petting zoo... the next day.
Kakak tunggu tortoise timbul

Iman. Dah berani nak usap-usap ayam ni and let it ate from his hands

inilah rabbit kesian tu. taktau le apa salah dia, kena tampar dek Adam

As for Iman, he made so much progress. Dia dah berani masuk air separas dada and when given a pair of goggles, dia berani masukkan muka dalam air (muka aje yerr... bukan kepala sepenuhnya). Dia pun berani pegang binatang kat animal farm tu.

Makan, for me so-so je lah. Malam tu hujan lebat and we were too tired to even go out so in-room-dining je lah. Next morning buffet breakfast. Spread so-so.. bolehlah, nothing to shout about. Tak tau le kot-kot its buffet BBQ sedap tapi mahal la amat. Kalau kami berdua aje boleh tau try tp dengan anak-anak rugi je in the sense that depa makan tak banyak mana ponnn.

Remember pasal bilik kami split level tu? In the end all of us slept in the living area (memang bawak toto) and the bedroom takde sapa-sapa pon tidur ha ha.
