Back To Reality - Home from holidays

Our 4D/3N holidays up on the east cost finally ended, and we had to return home *sigh*. We were in Tanjung Jara for a family (my side) holiday, 18 of us (inc 1 infant, 1 toddler and 2 maids) in 4 cars went and we took up 6 rooms. It was actually the very first ever family holiday where every one were present (except my mum) since we were kids. We stayed in the resort the whole time, enjoying the pool and the sea, and some of us got to enjoy the spa as well (part of the package). I had 2 spa treatments consisting of 100min massage each as I took Daddy's session since he didn't like people to 'work' on him (his exact words). It was blissful.... The only complain about this trip was the mediocre food in the resort (where we took all meals) and the journey to and fro (almost 6hrs/trip) . Thank goodness for the new Karak Highway, or the journey would have been 8hrs from KL! We were lucky because King's Wife's daughter, Samantha, decided to come in our car on both the journeys, and Zara was really happy having her as company.

Just before we left the resort for home. We were the last to leave.

Samantha Che-che tickled one of Zara's funny bones on the journey home.
More photos and moments captured will be in later posts.

Did you stop by Cukai town for stuffed crabs? There is also a hainanese coffee shop in this town that serves very good coffee and kaya buns.

So nice to have family trips!

Zara's smiles so sweet! And she is quite tall, looks like almost same height with YChing who is 3 months older than her.

I likes Spa and massage too but very "kiamsiap" to spend money.
