Our Last Night in Kuala Lumpur

Standard

Wow…what an awesome experience of travelling as we complete the first year of our adventures.

Today is our last night to that twin towers view and also our new LLF’S  (Life Long Friends ).

We never say goodbye to them thanks to tango and whatsapp….LOL!!!

For our last night we spent it with our Malaysian friends Sara and her husband Sajad and their cute boy Razmiq who calls me mummy…

We will miss them all so much but with the Manns clan you never know when the wind will blow us back to Malaysia again so stay put and stay in touch.

Oh…and here is the funny thing…for our last supper my kids asked if we could have dinner at pizza Hut….such a weird thing to ask for since we are actually going to the land of pizza hut…lol!!!

Well their not so all the time request and wish was granted and we had a tasty crusty flaky pizza and enjoyed every single bite…

Well we say Goodnight Kuala Lumpur and Good afternoon Bassett Virginia.

Great families we have made across the globe.

The Mines Mall….

The countdown is really on as we prepare for our new adventure in Virginia….3 days before we get on our 21 hour flight….I don’t look forward to that at all….but I am excited about the destination where that 21 hour flight will take us all.

Well today we took a trip to the mines mall…it’s a 280 meters long man made lake that runs through a beautiful mall…

We got on our boat and jetted off to the mall….through a tunnel and shops all around us.

Malaysia Exploration Continues. ..

HOSPITAL!!!! WHAT FOR?

Standard

Well let’s see how this story line will go…

Woke up early today because its one of the days we have to leave our apartment early for the weekly cleaning.
So got up and all prep up ready for what I consider an awesome upcoming day for the whole family. Going to play archery at timesquare mall.

Destiny our oldest decided today is not a day for her to be out so she wants to rest at home…I was not too excited about her decision but since she explained that she was just tired I felt I have to respect her decision.

So marcus and I and the rest of the bunches set off…all excited because marcus was taking Mj (our 6yr old boy) on his daddy date. Mj himself was super excited and even started teasing his sisters.

Got to the train station at PWTC platform all ready to board our train….just waiting on it to show up.

Then marcus and I sat down and the other kids found a spot to sit also while we wait on the train.

Then we heard a hit….and a scream and blood all over the ground….

It’s was our son…..Lord…I felt like my world just collapsed on me as I watch marcus run to him and said keep the head up….and blood just gushing out…I thought I lost my only son…

Then I remembered something that I have been practicing since having kids….stay calm the kids are watching how I react so they also decide how they act…so I took in deep breaths and just listen to instructions from marcus. Wish I took pictures of the blood but was so deep into figuring out what we have to do next.

So I run downstairs to get a first aid kit….which they don’t have so please stay out of danger while at the train station because no medical attention available.

After cleaning the blood and finally getting him calm from crying and scared of his own blood.

We rushed him to the nearest hospital to make sure that he does not need stitches.

image

Blood all cleaned and trying to figure out if he can tell us what hurts….head, teeth, gum ect.

image

Arrived at the hospital….he did not want to sit in the wheelchair…he was not excited about that at all…

image

They checked him and said we have 2 options. Wait for a couple of days to see if it heals by itself with some antibiotics and pain killers or put him to sleep right away and stitch him up….well both the doctor and Marcus agree it’s not that urgent to stitch so just keep an eye on it for now…

image

Getting it all cleaned up

image

That’s how he looked swollen lip(a little cut inside) and bruised face….

Funny but after all this with our energy around him…he asked his daddy “can we still have our daddy date please?” So his wish was granted…

image

He did get his wish….daddy date with laser tag and a movie and some ice cream…

image

It could have been our worse nightmare but God is always watching over us….he is alright and playing all around like nothing happened…

image

I got to get a pose in before we left him and marcus to have their father and son moment

image

Well the girls and I decided to get into something fun…archery…

image

She is on point…

image

Ready to take over…

image

I think I got this…lol!!

image

Hey picture first…target later…

Over all our day was excellent with us having a super challenging but yet fun day…

Little Artists Travelling The Universe

Standard

So my kids lately have been drawing and with smiles on their faces they will complete a drawing then go right back into drawing another one. Not sure why this type of drawing but I am starting to believe with our travels it has sparked that kind of artistic side of them.

Without looking on anything they all seem to be drawing the same kind of pictures.

For the past year we have travel through some great countries and have made great friends.

So of the countries we visited are

South africa – cape Town and Joburg
Kenya -Nairobi and mombasa
Bangkok- Thailand
Phillippines – makati and Manila
Malaysia – Kuala Lumpur

I think their inspiration comes from this different places…Remember we are all ONE

Enjoy

Malaysia History rounds today

Standard

Today we decided to get out and explore the story behind malaysia…wish I could share all that I learned on here. But we will only do some photos and also if I can remember what I was told I will add that.

We started the journey back at the ministry of tourism of malaysia. They have a 5 min walk through mesuem.

At this place we get to see the rainforest of some parts of malaysia. Also got to find out there are 2 malaysia’s (they are both called malaysia but when you ask the locals they say the other malaysia.) And that malaysia has its own laws and immigration system. Not sure what caused the division.
At that mesuem we saw the old clothing and how they live. Which is pretty much like most humans….we are all ONE…

After we went to the Galeri of Kuala Lumpur and we took what they call Tram ( I hope I got the spelling and name correct)…

That tour around the city cost us $0.50 per person and it’s for 1 hour.

We drove to the monument where they have the soldier statue…pretty huge.

image

Great to have this moments with the soul you truly want to be with…

My camera man was just awesome

We are family

This thing is huge…
