Well today we are setting off on our family holiday to Malaysia after getting into to bed at 11:30pm we were out of bed at 4:30 to drive to Coolangatta to catch the plane.
After check-in we grabbed some brekkie and a cuppa with Scotty Prince and the Titians. They were on their way to play the warriors. They’re some big boys, man!
We hopped on the plane and got settled in for the 8 ½ hour flight to K.L. We managed to get seats at the back of the plane so we could have a bit more room with Frankie which was great. We soon took off and made our way over the top end of OZ...
We soon had lunch and the kiddies were keeping themselves busy drawing and asking all sorts of questions. Abby had got some Rescue Remedy for Frankie before we left and it was great to help calm him and help with his ears and teeth.
After 3 nappy changes and playing musical chairs with the kids we touched down in K.L to a warm and sticky 32 degrees...................we soon made our way into the terminal and were pushed to the front of the line
by the airport staff which was great and went to get our bags and check in to carry on to Kota Kinabalu. If we hadn’t of been rushed through we estimate that we would have been lining up for at least an hour to get through.
We dropped off our bags and headed back to Starbucks for a cuppa and a bite to eat. Dani and Zav settled for a boost juice which was needed due to how muggy it was. We headed off to the gate and waited for our plane. While waiting, Frankie had a crawl all over the place and he loved it as he hadn’t done much all day and needed to burn some energy. Abby and the girls chilled out and I found a fruit stall which was great to try some new tropical fruit done in different ways, it was yum....
Our plane arrived and while waiting to have our boarding passes checked, (approx 20 people were already out and on the plane) we were told that there had been a “technical” difficulty and that there was to be a 40 min wait before boarding. All the people that had already boarded had to
get back off the plane and come back inside. We soon found out that the problem was a blown tyre....phew, nothing too serious
We had our dinner on the plane and Frankie fell asleep for the whole way which was great. We all had a nanna nap which was needed after a big day...we got into K.K at 10.15pm and got our bags and headed out to meet our driver and the owners of where we are staying at Marina Court Condominiums. Approximately is about 10-15mins drive away.
After a meet and greet with Theresa and Nigel we got Frankie into bed and the girls were not too far behind him as it has been a big day for the 3 of them and us.
After setting up the computer and checking our social media friends we had a cuppa and headed for bed we have just done an 18 hour day from door to door....we are exhausted but very happy to be here and can’t wait to get out tomorrow and see the sights and sounds and tastes of Kota Kinabalu.
