Our "balik kampung" trip during Raya break !

I really can't deny the torture of long distance journey having to endure confining the boys in the car for at least 5 hours !!!
As usual we left before the sun rise & arrived huby's kg, Kuala Kedah, AS around 11am. Happily greeted with the smiles of 2 elderly folks. The boys instantly got warmed up with their ah kung & ah ma.
This time was one of the unusually long stay in huby's hometown. We definitely had a good rest as we had long desire..........
Since started blogging, i've not be back to AS and so had no possession of any snap shots of huby's kg. house. Furthermore, an uncle commented that both Kuala Kedah & Alor Setar are no longer considered/qualified to be called "kampung" anymore!!
But to me, no matter what after nearly 8 years since my first visit to huby's 'kampung' house it still gave me the 'kampung' feeling..........so i like to share what i felt !! I'm still glad to be able to have a chance to experience 'kampung' life though i must say i didn't like it at all !!!

Seen below (L-R) was the backyard, outdoor kitchen, neighbouring plantation & finally another neighbour wooden house!! and so u judge lar..........

What my boys like the most about going back 'kampung' was the free flow supply of toys, candies, ice-creams, chocolates.........
Below was the first thing that Scot has done when he first step into his ah kung's sundry shop house i.e. eyeing on the toys & grabbed ah kung's hand & led him 'there'. Both the boys plucked the colourful eraser pack by pack each day until the day we left, there were only 3 packs left and we had now about 20++ pieces of erasers at home (which i will distribute on their party day)!!


The boys continued attacking other toys.........i felt ashame, scolded them but with no luck......can't stop them. Ah kung & ah ma said "beh heow kin lar"/nevermind wor !!!

Luckily we only went back like once or twice a year ........ else don't know where to hide our face!!

OMG the toys... If I were there, I should be the same like your boys too. Rebut with my boys. I love toys well, there's no wonder Josh has abundance of toys.
Sean and Scot so lucky. Let them be lah... just enjoy the moment. I also like balik kampung. So many things to see and do but still love it coz the air in kg is so much better than in bandar.
