It’s school holiday right now in Malaysia, and while everyone else is busy traveling and holidaying with their family and kids, I’m stuck at home again, doing God knows what. *roll eyes*. Nothing new there. The husband is always busy, and have no time for recreation. The only ‘holiday’ to him is just during Chinese New Year *roll eyes again* where he will take a few days off to go back and spend some time in his hometown, which, I never consider as a real vacation because it was a never a relaxing affair. Full of expectation, and full of…well, stress…and traffic jam, stupid, noisy fireworks and crowd…and well, you name it. Can’t even sleep in peace during that ‘vacation’ with all the crash boom bang around me.
There are times I feel so bloody fed up that all these years, I almost never get a REAL break at all. I wonder if the only vacation I’ll get is when I finally die and rest in peace? Hmm, now that’s a thought, but let’s not dwell in that cuz obviously, I’m still alive and my complains are usually in vain, cuz nobody is gonna entertain it or have some empathy for me, including you readers and friends because obviously, you’re not walking in my stinking shoes and by time of writing, you’re probably snoring away in some hotel in an exotic location. 😀
So you say, if my husband always have his hands full and can’t be bothered to take us for a vacation during school holidays, why don’t I go somewhere on my own? Here’s why: I feel like I just can’t be bothered to take-off anywhere and spoil my kid like other brats his age during school holiday. School holiday expectation is kinda getting too mainstream and annoying, with all the crowd and all the travel postings from all around the web.
I usually do my ‘traveling’, sight-seeing and whatnot impromptu, during non-peak period. I’ll go anywhere I like, when I like and without notifying others when I wanna go for it. Ah, the joy of being a freelance. I am in control of my own time.
Neway, this is a tad outdated. I thought of writing about my recent trip to Aquaria KLCC with my son and my online game guildmates, but never really got the time to sit down and do it. Yups, I played hookie. I was supposed to work that day but heck I care. So here’s sharing with all of you the pictures taken when we were in Aquaria KLCC. Pretty awesome place to visit if you’re a big fan of marine creatures, I must say.
Featuring 60,000 square feet (5,600 m2) in two levels with a 90-metre (300 ft) underwater tunnel, Aquaria KLCC houses over 250 different species and over 5,000 land and aquatic animals from Malaysia and around the world. Interactive information kiosks on fish and turtle conservation. It includes a themed retail area of about 5,000 square feet (460 m2). Aquaria KLCC is based on the journey of water from the land to the sea. The journey starts in the misty highlands, down through rivers, through the rainforest and mangroves to the coral reefs into the deep blue sea.

Whenever a ship sinks, it became the marine creature’s natural habitat.
Fascinating crustaceans. They’ll be more fascinating to me if they end up on my plate, though. 😛
