A Famosa Water World

Started the month of June with a mini getaway with my form 6 group of friends :D We went to A Famosa for 2 days and 1 night!

We have all been wanting to go on a trip for quite awhile but it's quite hard to match everyone's budget and working schedule, so a month ago when I saw the Groupon deal for A Famosa's Water World at only RM29, I straight away asked everyone if they wanted to go and everyone said okay!

Quite drama la at first. Thought we couldn't stay over anymore because the villa that my uncle owned there was in a horrible mess no thanks to the caretaker, but he promised to clean up before we went to stay and he really did! Was totally shocked that the house was sparkling clean from top to bottom!

Then when we got there it started raining! But thank God the rain stopped after 15 minutes and off we went!

Look of the day: Hair up in a bun, Sunglasses from Padini, Swimsuit from Singapore and KS's over sized blue jersey

Rented lockers and tubes when we got there. The double tube was RM20 (RM10 is deposit, they'll give it back when you give them the tube back), the lockers were RM4 each.

Found out that all 8 of us were quite matchy with our outfits coincidentally! haha.

SKQ and CZH without shirts

Hazim and Fazrul with shirts

Angie and Man Ping with their One Million Women Purple Walk shirts

And then KS and I with our blue jerseys photobombed by Man Ping and SKQ. lol. Ignore awkward leg position please.

I think the absolute best ride was this Big Ice Cream! It was soooo thrilling and shocking. Not for the weak hearted. haha. I shall not describe it very much because knowing what happens spoils half the fun and excitement! All I can say is that I was so completely shocked by what was going to happen next in that tube that someone said my eyes were opened till as big as saucers. =.= Not sure exaggerated or what.

Oh yes, tips for surviving: DO NOT. I repeat. DO NOT let go of the handles of the tube before the ride is completely over. SOMEONE (I shall not mention names, so don't worry KS, nobody will know it was you. I know. I'm so nice.) thought that the ride was over and decided to let go of the handles and almost landed outside of the tube which might have caused a whole lot of injuries. Thankfully, nothing happened. 

That was definitely the most thrilling ride for me. The rest was fun too, but not as thrilling. Didn't try the body slides though because it looked like it will hurt. A lot. Would've played a lot more rounds if we didn't have to climb up so high (about 3 stories? or 4?) to play each game plus carrying the tubes ourselves. The double tube was still ok, but the tube for 4 was super heavy. Thank you to the boys for carrying them about 98% of the time :D

Had fun at the kiddy pool too. Uhh. They did have a sign that said adults weren't allowed, but uhh...oops. hehe. Kids at heart count mah?? lol

Oh yes I did saw something quite disgusting here. A mother and her kid spit together in the pool. It was grossss. Please people. Don't be selfish la. That was so disgusting I can't even =_= 

Then we headed back to the wave pool after we got exhausted of climbing and riding all the rides where we just sat down on our tubes and relaxed.

Lesson learnt. Useless to depend on others to help us take a group picture. Should have invested in a selfie stick but so far the ones I see are close to RM40. Anyone knows where to get cheaper ones? 

Oh yes, have to tell you a very sad story. So I actually have motion sickness but I didn't know it was THAT bad. Just sitting in the wave pool also can get "sea sick". That's why I had to sit out earlier than the others. I was annoyed but I couldn't do anything about it. Good thing it was already towards the end and we were about to head home.

Ice cream to cheer up the girl that got motion sickness. Lol. 

Headed back to my uncle's villa to have our dinner which was Steamboat!! Sorry for the blurry pictures. The yellow lighting wasn't helping much.

We brought all the ingredients and cooking utensils all by ourselves and had 3 rounds of these. Then, Hazim, Fazrul and Man Ping went back home, leaving the 5 of us to stay.

Had endless rounds of card games and then decided at 12 midnight that we were hungry again, so we had one more round of steamboat. haha.

Woke up the next morning and had the leftovers for breakfast. We went to McD before we came here and got all the ketchup, chili sauce, salt and pepper so that we didn't have to bring those. Quite smart right? haha. *praising selves* This saved us a lot of hassle ok! Thanks CZH! 

Poor SKQ was the last to get up, so the other 2 boys decided to pile all the thick blankets on him, stacked up the pillows and turn off the air conditioning. He still slept for at least 15 minutes more I think and then woke up drenched in sweat. Hahaha. But he's a good sport =P We're sorry! Hehe.

Then we all decided to have some fun in the pool before we left. 

It was a really nice trip and I have so many things to be thankful for!

  1. KS, who took up the organizing position with me because I couldn't have managed it all alone.
  2. Awesome friends who trusted us. Just realized we didn't even show them the bill of the ingredients we bought but they still gave us the amount we asked for without any questions. So sorry! Will be more particular next time.
  3. Awesome friends who trusted me to get the tickets. hahaha. Actually it was my first time purchasing with Groupon and I called A Famosa a few times to make sure that the vouchers I printed out were valid.
  4. Friends who aren't fussy over who should do more work. Every one worked together cleaning and preparing everything. Nobody minded. 
  5. Protection.
  6. Amazing weather. It was mostly cloudy when we were playing at the Water Theme Park. So we were barely under the sun most of the time!
  7. My brother's waterproof camera! Without it we couldn't have all these amazing photos. Thanks Gor :D
  8. And most importantly, I'm thankful for all the fun we had.

Definitely hoping for a next trip with them before we each head of to uni! :D xx
