Qing Ming Weekend

Last weekend, we all went back to Ipoh for Qing Ming for hubby's side of the family. Two cars with 6 adults and 3 kids to his grandma's house.
I won't be truthful if I say I truly enjoyed the short 2d,1n trip to my hometown. I honestly find extended family events quite stressful at times. I know comments are always well-meaning, but they somehow have the effect of making me feel like I'm a lousy mum. Ah well..... I know I should learn not to take the comments to heart.

But of course there were plenty of good moments as well :)
Some pics from the trip:

"Lift me high, mummy"

"Higher, Higher !!"

It was hot! hot! hot! Need to cool down with cold drinks

Beef Noodle from Hollywood Restaurant (it's actually a coffee shop)

Whole lorry of mangoes! Only RM10 for 3 kg. Really cheap.

Happy Girl in carseat. Luckily, she didn't scream like she used to. Phew!
