Royal Caribbean cruise [Part 2]: Penang and Port Klang

 Day 2: the ship docked at Penang as the first stop so we chartered a mini bus to bring us around.
Time was scarce so it was basically touch-and-go for the experience.

Poor Adam was so tired from all our activities that he fell asleep like this while we had Chendol

Enjoying some icy treats before setting off.
I'm wearing a salmon pink batwing blouse with embroidery from . Denim shorts from Bugis Street.
Bag: Hermes Etoupe evelyne GM III, my trusty "rugged" bag.
Slippers: Tory Burch. Very comfy and something I can wear to death.

Penang Peranakan museum

After Peranakan museum tour, we went to Penang Gurney food street for dinner before heading back to the ship.

Penang laksa: sedup!

Adam and I going crazy in front of my in-laws. Yes, my children can do anything with me as long as it doesn't involve drugs and a real gun. I'm a crazy Mummy like that!

At least all the jumping made a certain baby laugh

Day 3: Port Klang.

At Port Klang

Eat first, shop later. One huge claypot of Bak Kut Teh. Love the flavorful herbal soup.

Oops only these 2 photos from Port Klang because there's nothing much going on there.

I didn't mean to eavesdrop on Adam while he was playing on his own before bedtime but the cabin is only that small and I heard him saying to his imaginary friends, "Oh no, Adam's mummy is here! Quick!" [insert shuffling sound effects which I assume are imaginary friends scampering off].
 It's official - I'm a scary Mumzilla!

Easter weekend: Royal Caribbean Cruise 2013 [Part 1]

 Hello hello! Went on a cruise with my beloved family and our prodigal kids during the Easter long weekend.
We decided on a cruise because Ashton just had his surgery a month ago and we did not want to subject him to the stress of flying.
Anyway, here are the photos!
My lovely online friend @coco_muffin (her ID on Instagram, follow her! Teehee..) lent me this dress when I told her I wanted to buy it for this trip. Love the nautical stripes and flowy material!
thanks D!

and Nautical nails to fit the mood

These 2 boys whose well-being and happiness I guard fiercely.

My children have powerful built-in Global Positioning System which can detect Mummy no matter where I hide.

"You can run but you can't hide, Mummy!"

My Mum-in-law. She's a lovely lady. So happy to have her as my MIL because she can take my nonsense and vice versa. We are very 3-8 together!

My unruly kids.

We are all dressed up for dinner. I'm wearing a navy-and-white striped dress from Gap Kids.

Oh, we (Andy) won $100 at the casino!

Lounging around while Adam is in the Playroom and Ashton is with my in-laws.
Color block blouse and beige shorts from Nichii. The blouse has a gold exposed zip which I like.
Red moccasins from Marie Claire.

Sunnies: Prada Baroque Rectangle frame (the other pair I have is Round framed)

" Royal Caribbean International operates some of the most environmentally friendly cruise ships in the world.We demonstrate environmental stewardship and sustainability by using management systems that meet voluntary international standards, including ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 14001:2004 quality and environmental standards.
In fact, Royal Caribbean was the first cruise line to use an environmental management system certified to the ISO 14001 standard. "

In addition, each of our ships has an environmental officer responsible for:

- Oversight of the company's onboard environmental program
- Environmental training for every crew member
- Liquid and solid hazardous- and non-hazardous waste management
- Chemical management and workplace safety

I am totally supportive of businesses which take pride in caring for the environment. We have to do our part in saving our children's future!
 Hope you made the best of your Easter weekend! :)
