Brought two new bags this time - a very spacious suitcase from Mum and a $5 backpack that could hold three brollies, four bottles, three raincoats, a portable potty and a few more small things! So I didn't pull out our usual old diaper bag.
Very happy with fewer bags this time
Ok, now the trip...

Hungry Yang looking out from the car
Strawberry sticks for snacks when walking to Legoland
Medini Mall looks quite different now! There are now a few play structures and a new supermarket. And it being December, there were decorations and a merry-go-round. The kids were having fun even before we entered Legoland :)
So fun that Yu refused to leave at the end of the day and got deprived of his phone!
Our first photo since Sea Life was up!
Yu wanted to watch his brothers take the small roller coaster
What's so loud??
Love this photo of Kai!
This time, Yu decided he wanted to go for Ninjago ride! But once the bad guys came out, he cried out loud!!! I had to hug him and console him by killing off the bad guys hoho! Oops, so evil... But he was super cute!
Our score :)
Yang with Master Wu and Kai
Expressions fuelled by ice cream!
Yu wanted a rainbow paddle pop. Yang wanted a cone. Kai had wanted Magnum but chose a rainbow paddle pop coz it was cheaper - so sensible!
Yu had his first drive!
He had been harping about Junior Driving School since or even before his third birthday. Yang was supposed to teach him but he went elsewhere with Papa and Kai. So I taught him how to turn left and right. But I forgot to teach him how to straighten!! Poor boy crashed a lot... But he also managed one nice turn :)
Later, Yang tried to teach Yu on the way to the driving school again
We took this family shot two years ago too! :)
And Yang wanted a picture here
The whole miniland was decorated with elves! On our third day, when Sito was with Kai, they went around taking pictures of all the elves and won ourselves three Santa hats :)
Yu watched his brothers play Beetle Bounce - while he had his personal Papa Bounce!
Happy on the big choo choo train!
It was kind of drizzling parts of the day. Towards the end, it really rained quite a bit. Luckily we had our brollies! We were already quite fortunate that it didn't pour. Last weekend was so wet that we feared it would rain the whole week!
Whole country was covered with rain clouds on Saturday *.*
We let the kids play at the Medini play area while Sito packed dinner. We settled the kids in the apartment and left for our own dinner!
Black pepper crab!
Also took a picture of the shell to show the kids
We used to play a little game at bedtime where I would cut up a crab and fry it into chilli crab or black pepper crab. So I asked the kids whether they wanted to join us for crab, or just to see crabs. But no, they didn't want. Oh well!
Bought some buns for breakfast the next day, and went for our long-awaited massage! I didn't want a head massage so opted to replace that with an extended back massage. But my back was so ticklish that in the end, all I had was 40 min of shoulder massage! I got so sore I had to tell the guy to stop *.*
Found this on our bed when we got back :D

This apartment has a minion theme. But it came with two or three penguins and a mega bear. Yu kept hugging those toys - don't know how many pairs of hand have touched those, or how much saliva *.*
The mega bear is bigger than Yu!
His brothers were, however, more drawn to the PS4
Ready, steady, go!
Yu is getting braver - he didn't dare to do the red slide last time :) But he didn't want to try the other kiddy slides again. Perhaps next time...
Finally got a chance to float with Kai! But he bullied me throughout by pouring water all over me! T.T
Kai and Yang tried a new ride!
Sito and I were there too. When it was time to jump, I couldn't do it! I eventually took off though, by leaning forward until there was no way back! I knocked my head a little in the tube and screamed my lungs out..
We had beehoon, fried rice and fried lemon chicken sans sauce for lunch! Love packing food from day 1 dinner :p Then we took a nice nap before heading out for dinner.
Three bears greeted us on arrival
They sold me coffee and donut hoho!
Went to see toys and used a trick I learnt from social media - have them pose with toys they wanted and say we would get them another day! :p
Nerf gun for Kai
Bowling game for Yang
Some random thing for Yu - look at that face!!
Old Optimus Prime for Papa, hoho!
They didn't get all that for Christmas btw, oops... Left for dinner at Astons - well, better than Macs?? - and got them some ice cream at the 7-11 nearby. Then we chanced upon a bouncy castle - unlimited play time for RM10 each. So we let them play and have N watch them while Sito and I explored half of the super big floor.
Root beer float!
Mesmerised with ice skating
My daredevil kids!
Kai fell and rolled off to the padded floor after that - terrible! A fellow mum must have seen them climb later coz when we got back to fetch them, she was putting on shoes for her daughter and said to me, "You three boys, I salute you!" I told Kai 别人看到你们这样都可怜我！He smiled and dashed off...
Calling for a cab - such a cute scene!
We kept having difficulty getter grab cars during this trip. No car or long wait. So that day, we got back quite late. The kids eventually went to bed at about 10 pm!
And then we had our supper while watching 三生三世！

So lucky to have clear skies again! We left earlier to check out the merry-go-round we saw from our window and food options for lunch.
Yu tried the stationary merry-go-round
Yang was also happy
The park entrance was filled with Christmas decor!
How many Lego pieces are there?!
Kai was happily running through the bubbles
Hands in the air as we flew!
Posing at the train station
We split up and were supposed to meet on this stretch. Sito took Kai to the roller coasters while N took Yang to the driving school. But Yu insisted on the train. I saw Sito walk by, looking for us, four times from the time we boarded the train until we got back!
Sito and Kai took pictures of the elves in miniland and got us three Santa hats
Then we had a meltdown. Yang refused to head out for lunch. He cried the whole way. Even the merry-go-round couldn't entice him. I was trying to get a seat and order food first at Old Town but he refused to step in. After much threats and persuasion, we finally sat down together.
It took Mega Man to calm Yang down
Mega Man - the game, not the Papa :p The boys had been playing in the apartment. We ended up getting it as a Christmas present.
Sea Life is great after lunch!
Family starfish with all our names :)
Then I coloured N black crabs with various patterns - creepy stuff :p
Look, Dory! (Too much Finding Nemo :p)
Family shot at the entrance!
Then Kai and Yang went for VR again. Yu wanted to go watch them. While waiting for their turn, he had lots of fun with the water bomb right in front of the VR ride. He saw some people press the button and turn around to take a photo with the victory sign and with the water splashing all over them. So he did a 50% copy - victory sign for a split second and ran away from the water!
Then we went to the playground. Kai was very sweet to his brothers. I asked him to take care of his brothers in the structure. He agreed, saying that he himself got lost in there before - he remembered while I had forgot! Then when Yu was afraid of a rope bridge, Kai went back to get him. Yang also said he was scared, so Kai went to get him too! But after a couple of rounds, he didn't bother anymore *.*
Kai holding Yu across
Kai holding Yang across
Somehow he started doing his concert dance moves on the observation tower...
Time to race their own cars!
It was so difficult to get the kids away from the racing place. And it was yet another challenge to get them out of the park! We had to pass through a large part of the park before the exit and of course we had to take the choo choo train so that they could have some gummy bears...
Yang mesmerised with the video
Kai left with Sito to help pack dinner while Yang and Yu were watching a performance on stage
Dinner was Korean! Instead of BBQ, we had hotpot :) Then we bought some small gadgets at a new gadget shop on our way to massage..
Sito tried cupping and fire treatment this time!
Friday, 20 Dec 2019
Very soon, it was our last day...
Did the fire engine
Yu decided to just play Lego while his brothers played Ninjago
Yang is always the most coordinated boy
Yang and Yu wanted to watch the splash but Yu was hiding behind me
We were back at the playground with the rope bridge when Yu peed in his pants! He had too much fun and forgot to pee. I also forgot to remind him :( So this is now the Yang poopoo playground and the Yu peepee playground!!
Wearing my scarf as a sarong all the way home!
Thought of pulling out old pants from the suitcase but in the end, I didn't bother :p I must remember to bring this useful piece of fabric everywhere!
And now, I shall plan for the March trip! :)
