The End to a Great Weekend

Since meeting up last year for a weekend, myself, Azida, Syahril and Itul felt that we should do that more often. It turned out that both Itul and Azida would be participating in a cycling event that weekend in PD. So, why not make an event of it. Thus, the plan was hatched to spend the weekend in PD. This would be fair for everybody as those in KL had only an hour to travel while Azida would take around three. Not bad.

Rather than staying in a hotel, Anita decided to look in Air BNB. It turned out that there were plenty of apartments and bungalows on for lease around PD town. We wanted a place with a pool, plus a beach area if possible. The search did not take long, and a month back, Anita booked @12Haven, a large bungalow just outside of town, about five minutes from Grand Lexis Hotel.

The bicycles were ready!

So, what did we do? We arrived on Friday, picking up the boys from school and straight down to PD. Syahril joined us shortly after. We had a seafood dinner near the bungalow, and by the time we were done, Azida joined us. The next morning’s breakfast was courtesy of Kafe Kampung Kaw. And the children had a take-out from McDonald’s.

The Saturday afternoon was spent in the pool, pizza for lunch followed by live Rugby World Cup on the Astro. Lunch followed at Embok Village Steamboat while enjoying a glorious sunset. We had to rush back to KL early on the Sunday morning while Azida, Amin and Itul were cycling. We had an anniversary dinner to attend to in Bangsar to celebrate my in-law’s 60th wedding jubilee. More food.

We had to travel to Bangi to Syahril’s place after the lunch as it turned out that I left my camera in PD. When we reached back to KL, the weather was gorgeous with brilliant sunshine. Such a beautiful end to the weekend.

I had to miss the Scott Kelby Photowalk for the PD trip. It looked like my friends were having a great time judging from their Flickr feed. So, for next year’s meet-up, I have to make sure that it won’t be during the first weekend of October ... We will try to meet closed to Anita’s birthday instead. Syahril’s daughter also has her birthday close to that date.
