We opted for some outdoor fun and gamely went to the kite festival sans sun protection cos it was a last minute decision.
It was baking hot but pretty fun. Not a huge turnout so we got lots of space for flying our own kite. The kite we brought didn’t work cos it was too “lembek” so a nice Indian (presumably gardener there) scammed us a good one at $10 (bargained down from $15). It’s ok since we needed one anyway, one that could fly.
We caught some nice demonstrations by local and international kit flying experts too.
Did the boys enjoy?
Yup! The highlight was the huge bag of potato chips we brought. Well, they had some fun from the scootering around, craft and games stall which they got some presents, playing with cute dogs, and baking while flying the kite.
