Our Vesak Day Long Weekend

I’m sure most of you have enjoyed the long weekend due to the Vesak Day public holiday. I took two days off and travelled back to my hometown in Ipoh with Little Edison. We had such a good time here.

Years ago when there was no direct flight from Singapore to Ipoh, I dread taking the long distance 8-hours coach. Thanks to Firefly, we can now fly to Ipoh directly. It’s just a short 1 hour and 15 minutes flight.

Edison had so much fun playing with his cousins, Jaynie and Jaerone. They don’t get to meet so often, and when they do, they play like there’s no tomorrow.

Ipoh - May 2013





The kids had their Aeroplane kids’ meal at Sakae Sushi after two hours’ of play time at Kidszoona, a huge indoor playground at the newly opened AEON Ipoh Station 18 shopping centre.


We’re going to spend another day here before we head back to Singapore.

Wait a minute! Aeon Ipoh? Is it the one in Sitiawan? Or Ipoh? I went to the Aeon at Sitawan; we had a crazy time there! Don’t tell me you really went to the same school as my hub?

Hi Homeschoolsg,
This AEON is in Ipoh, the newest and biggest shopping mall in Ipoh now. We had a great time there too. I bought quite a lot of clothes because of the Vesak Day sales. The kids enjoyed themselves at the indoor playground there.

Oh, I went to a few schools because of my family’s relocation. I studied at ACS Kampar and ACS Ipoh before. Did your hubs went to ACS Ipoh last time? 🙂

Wow! Aeon open so many outlets! I went to a different one. It was huge too but mostly deserted- to ex for the locals there I suppose. Nope, different school! 😀
