Water World Theme Park

When I thought hubby could not take leave during the last school’s holiday, I promised myself to bring the kids for a surprise visit to the Water World Theme Park at Bukit Padang. A surprise visit caused even being a KK town folks, we have never been to the place before.

A few days before the school holidays, hubby told me that his leaves were approved and that he would be taking us to a camp out at Tambunan. I thought then we would scrap the visit again but surprisingly hubby told me to proceed with the idea. We would have to do it on the last day of the holiday though, the day after the camping trip.

Then Adek fell ill during the camping trip. She was still feeling weak on our trip back home and there is a high possibility of abandoning the visit to the Water World. Kakak was very disappointed with the impending cancellation and openly demonstrated her unhappiness. We were supposed to have an early start but after a while Adek told us that she was feeling a little bit better and urged us to go ahead

On the advice of Momoi, I did not prepare any food for the visit as she told me that food was not allowed in. They had their bags checked the last time they went there. So, I only bring a small bottle of water. When we arrived, our bags were not checked and surprise, surprise, the food would only be served at around 11.00am if memory served me right. Gosh, we thought we would have our breakfast there.

So, while waiting for the food, I started snapping around when….

Man : Hello, hello…
Self : (turning around)…
Man : Ndak boleh tangkap gambar
Self : Huh! Ndak boleh tangkap gambar...(repeating like a parrot)...
Man : Ya, ndak boleh...

I walked away confused and angry and tried very hard to remember if I missed on the non-camera signage. I told hubby of my frustration and we relaxed for a while just looking out for the kids.

After a while I started snapping around again. I was focusing on one of the kids when from the corner of my eyes I saw the same man coming over to where I was. Man, I was totally pissed off and was I ever ready to do a confrontation with this man.

Man : Hello, jangan tangkap yang kosong ah
Self : Huh!
Man : Jangan tangkap yang kosong...(pointing to the slides)
Self : Oh, saya mau tangkap gambar budak-budak saya saja
Man : Ok, jangan tangkap yang kosong...
Self : Kenapa ah...
Man : Ada orang tangkap gambar kosong, lepas tu bikin brochure...susah kami...
Self : Ok, jangan susa la...saya pun ndak mau buang masa tangkap yang kosong ni...
Man : Ok..bagus kamu pigi sana...senang mau gambar (pointing to where a couple of ”lifeguards” station themselves)Self : (walked with the man)…thank you (when I reached the place)...
Man : Ok…dia mau tangkap gambar budak-budak dia tu (telling his guys)…

At around 12noon, I signaled the kids to come out from the pool as we wanted to treat them to lunch at Gayang. I knew they were disappointed but what they did not know is that hubby has told me that he would be taking them for a return visit in the future. I purposely did not tell disclose that information or otherwise I will be forever harassed for when the next visit will be.

We only spent about 2 hours there but then again time is just not on our side. Hubby would have to go back to Labuan the next day.

The entrance fee of RM15 per pax is a tad expensive…
Compared to the joy the kids were having…
A pittance…
