The Tomson Family Outing 2015

So... We went for a family outing last weekend.. We went to Port Dickson, exploring the attractions there. Well, it was a tiring 2 days outing but it was fill with fun activities. Me and my husband will make sure that every family outing we've ever decided to go, it has to be a productive trip. In other words, sudah penat datang jauh-jauh alang² kalau tidak explore tempat tu. 😉 Just like last year, we went to A'Famosa Resort Melaka. (Sana mmg tip top ! Tapi harga mmg mahals..plus separate ticket for water park, cowboy town. Not mentioning the buffet also very pricey. Suits the title for 5star resort la kan.)

I bought this voucher from Groupon, 2days and 1 night stay at PRCC Port Dickson for RM148 (up to 4pax). Its a resort with the biggest man made beach in Malaysia (konon lah). Bla bla bla. We took the Family Junior Suite, with 1 kingsize bed and another  2 single bed for the kids. Okay la, nama pun cheap voucher from Groupon so the expectation is not too high la. Asalkan ada tempat untuk stay for the night. Suits the price la.

Day 1:
Venue: Rumah Terbalik Port Dickson.
Ya..PD also got rumah terbalik now bukan Tamparuli seja okeh.. haha.. Melaka also have 1. The difference is, PD UpsideDown  House allows visitors to take picture inside the building because the concept is an art gallery. Take pictures as many as you want. Every wall has different backgrounds and props. Mostly upside down and a few as illusions. Very interesting. Whilst the one in Tamparuli, the whole house and parking garage are upside down. But cannot take picture inside the house. Only outside. I think, if they allows visitors to take pic, it would be more profitable. Because people nowadays is keen to take photo of something unique/rare. By the time we've done taking pictures inside the PD Upside down house, when we went out there's a crowd of people waiting for their turn to go inside. Fuhhh.. betul² untung wooo.. Adult fee is RM15 and children RM10. Children below 90cm is FOC.

Venue: Port Dickson Ostrich Farm.
After Rumah terbalik, we went to nearby Ostrich Farm. It is a FARM! The kids were very excited!!! Including me! Hahahaha.. I guess that I really miss the farm environment. And the smells of animals poop. Hahahaha.. Sounds euww huh. We paid RM70 for the package of Farm+Dino Farm (2 adult, 2 kids) and 2 kinds of animal food; pallet and grasses (RM3 each). My husband laugh at me saying "Ko buat apa sama tu rumput?Ko saturang seja pigang rumput sini". I also laugh..coz I noticed all the other visitors only bought pallet for feeding the animals. But it turn out that, the animals love the grass!!! Hahahahaha... So more animals actions happens when I feed them with the grass lah. Hehe..
There are ostriches, camels, iguana, peacock, goats, chickens everywhere, rabbits!!!..and hamsters barn.. (they were so adorable!) dogs.. horses.. donkeys..birds..snakes..fishes.. Fuh..quite a lot. Mostly are animals you'll see in a farm. Very interesting place to bring kids for a visit. But we felt cheated on the price that we paid. Because there were no Dino Farm. Hmm.. very disappointing. Because the kids were very excited about it. I felt like I was the one cheating on them. Gladly they're ok even there's a sound of "oowhhhh... (with sad face)".  So I say 'sorry..next time la ah' to them.. huhu.. Nasib baik last time we went to Discoveria Avenue K, full of Dinosaurs!!!. (I'll tell you more about Discoveria in another post).
Btw, we pay for another RM55 for 2 printed pictures taken by the photographer. But I managed to pujuk the guy to give soft copy coz I have thumbdrive with me. Learned from last visit at Discoveria. Mahal gila the pictures. And the staff said, I can give you soft copy if u bring thumbdrive. Sadly, I didn't have it at that time. Lesson Learnt.
Funny the fella. He apologize at first because he accidentally deleted 1 pictures of us. There were 3 pictures taken, and left only 2. So I asked him to check the recycle bin and restore it. Hahahaha.. nasib baik masih ada! Pucat suda dia sebab terdelete.

Night:
Venue: Port Dickson Chinese Restaurant.
Eat dinner and also tapau to bring back at the resort for supper (incase anyone gets hungry in the middle of the night). The foods in the resort were kinda pricey, Thai food (kesian the kids nnt) and I'm not sure about the taste.

Day 2:
Venue: PRCC Water Park.
Time for splish-splash-splosh!!!
We paid for RM60 (2 adult, 2 kids, infant is free). Its weird because the waterpark have 2 session with separate charges. Session 1 were 7am - 12pm, session 2 were 12.01pm - 7pm). Usually waterpark access will be the whole day. This one is very weird. But we're still okay with it lah. Lagipun we're about to check out before 12pm juga. Its for the kids anyway. I don't like to be stingy on my kids. As long as I can still afford it, I'll pay it. Kalau xda duit, enda la kami berjalan jalan mansau ansau bah in the first place. 😉

Venue: Pantai Teluk Kemang.
Macam di Tg Aru ja sa rasa. But the beach was very disappointing. Trashes everywhere. Tidak sampai hati bagi anak main pasir. Next time la ya kids. Pemandangan not so nice. Hmm.. Tidak mandi laut pun, sebab penat betul. And we were actually on our way back to KL sudah. Just stop by for a short break.

There it goes. I hope these infos helps in some way. Hehe..
Enjoy the pics. 😉
