My Birthday Gift in Penang, Malaysia


I am in a mall outside of a Kid Land in Penang as I write this!  My birthday is today. I am 47. I am lucky I made it this far! I am fortunate because I am still breathing. I have all my limbs. I am spending my birthday with the two loves of my life, in Penang, of all places! What else can a girl ask for?

Today was mostly for Emma. Being the only child, she loves play-dates with other children. Even though we were not able to arrange a play-date in Chiang Mai with these friends, since the family would be in Penang at the same time, we had to make it happen.

Seeing Emma happy with a big grin on her face brings me joy on my birthday. Okay, I did have to sit  and wait for her, a lot, and escort her all over town, but what the heck! 🙂 She needs to be a kid with other kids! 🙂

Look at these beautiful happy faces!

I went on the yellow/green ones and screamed louder than the kids. They kept going back over and over for two hours!

Kid Land in Prangin Mall! Emma loved it! She thought it was very educational! 🙂

So it is not all glamour and glitters; just a simple, long and ordinary day. Long because they were in Kid Land for nearly 4 hours and adventure zone for 2 hours!  After all we are in Penang, Malaysia. One of my favorite places.

Happy for having had this day! I will take it, nothing less, nothing more. And a happy birthday to me! My little Asian Alice would say, “happy un-birthday” tomorrow!

  1. I have to go to this place! Those slides look like fun! Maria thought I was nuts going down the tube slides at the Spice Garden, but I finally got her to try one too 😀
