YL and I have been thinking of educational road trips for our children last year. Finally, we decided on Ipoh for our first trip. Ipoh is not too far for a start. Besides, we could stay at Wai Leng’s mom’s home which can help save some $$.(Thank you very much, Wai Leng) My children is En, aged 6 and Hui, aged 3. YL’s children, Yi, Fai, Han and Ean, aged 12, 6, 4, and 1 respectively. 2 moms and 6 kids on a road trip to Ipoh on 11 Jan 10 for 5 days.. Some commented, ” Ipoh! 5 days? What are we doing at Ipoh for such a long stay? ” Haha! My intention is for EnHui to experience anything while on the road, spontaneuosly, "Education of the Real World". Well, let’ see ……
We met YL and her family at Mc Donald, to exchange my car with a bigger Volvo car of her husband. At 1030am, we started our journey from Sungai Buloh Toll, NKVE. I was the driver and TL entertained the kiddies. (Phew! Thank you, YL)
Our first stop was Pun Chun Restaurant @Bidor town for lunch. It’s famous of its duck noodle soup cooked with herbs, dried longan, wolfberries and ginger. The soap is yummy and the meat is tender. For this round, we just ordered wan tan noodles and continued our journey after filling our tummy.
We exited at Simpang Pulai toll and head to Taman Canning, the home that we stayed. It’s easy to locate using the Ipoh Map. I would just parked by the road side when I read the map. The house is spacious and cozy. Aunty, whom EnHui called Aunty Po Po, provided us with great hospitality.We love that home. I love that home. EnHui love the garden and the swing.
EnHui love the equipments! En and Fai were busy collecting twigs and carried them to the top, building something. Hui checked the ground, found a dead crushed insect and did what she likes the most, picking flowers. We saw two squirrels on a tree. En picked stones and some tiny little things that look like pinecone. All these little stuff on the ground is like a big treasure for EnHui.
