Family Camping Trip at Lata Felda Lawin Selatan, Perak.

 Okay, this is like super delayed post. 

I suddenly felt the mojo to update it here, because we just came back from our second camping trip with the Seahs and Koks not too long ago. 

This was our very first planned family camping trip together - 6 adults and 8 children. We adventurous or what? For me, this is like dream comes true. I have always wanted to go for legit camping trips with my little family, and we finally got to do it together. Whoohoo! 

The Boys Brigade team was having a camping trip so we thought it would be fun to join them and kick-start our first real camping trip! 

Location: Lata Felda Lawin Selatan, Perak. 

It takes about 2 hours from Penang Bridge to this location. It is not located on top of a hill, so expect same weather in Penang: VERY HOT. 

As usual, our holiday trip must always start with breakfast, and this time, we went out of Penang for Maxim Dim Sum House, which was not great. 

We reached Lata Felda at 1230pm, and took us 4 hours to set our tents and all. FOUR HOURS. I guess okay for first timers with many children ya. HAHA. 

By the time we were done setting up our tents, and dining area, we changed the kids to swimsuits and went for river-swimming. The water was icey-cold, which was just perfect for the weather. The kids had so much fun, except Adam. The water was too cold for him, and eventually he fell asleep on me. 

There isn't much to do here actually except soaking in the river nd using our imagination to 'entertain' ourselves. More for the kids le. But it was really nice to bond and all. 

It rained a while the next day (in the noon) which was great because it cooled everyone down, but our flysheets almost flew away! All of them stood outside and held on to each corner of our "rooftops" while I took care of all the kids in our tents. 

Fun times for sure. Heh. 

We were also very gung-ho and brought so many food items for our meals here. It was a bit too much to do since the children outnumbered us. So, our next camping trip, we became smarter d. Heh. 

We ended the short holiday at Kang Fresh Water Food, at Bagan Samak - cheap and good - big win!
