With Malcolm around, I have to keep him entertained even when I am trying to cook. I found out that the best way to keep him interested and entertained is to let him join in whatever we are doing. When it comes to cooking, I will ask him to help me with some simple task such as peeling the garlic skin, beat the egg, mix the ingredient…it is normal for him to make a mess but he does get the task done partially, maybe 10%…that ain’t too bad for a start! Most importantly is that it gives me time to do my chores and he is also having fun 🙂0
We passed by Hoover Dam on the way to LV… it is about 45 minutes from our final destination. It was the 1st time Mummy and Mal saw the dam but wasn’t so for Daddy. Daddy was full of praise for the place thus even before we reached the place, Mummy was already all geared up for photo shoots. As we will not be stopping by the place, Mummy need to get the camera ready and snapped whenever she got chance.0
It is first day of Chinese New Year. The night before we had another reunion dinner…this time pot luck at Unlce Ah Kheng’s house. There were a lot of food and we fried some spring rolls and cook a dish of sweet and sour pork. There was also some gambling session and Daddy and Mummy were quick to lose whatever cash we had with us. We left around 10 plus as the next morning we were planning to leave home as early as 730 for our Las Vegas holiday.
We made it! We woke up at 630 and was ready to leave the house at 730 to meet up with the other friends and families who were leaving for the trip as early as us. It is gonna be quite a long drive…4 hours or so before we reached Las Vegas. We set off together…4 cars in a row, with another one joining up later.
After an hour of drive, we decided to stop by MacDonald for breakfast. It was a bad time to stop there as we were joined by a few tour buses loaded with senior citizens. They were visiting LV as well. Looks like MacDonald is not just a breakfast place for kids…
We decided to drive thru instead to get our breakfast. This was the first time we had breakfast in MacDonald since we came here. Same as back home, they had hotcakes in their breakfast menu. We decided to treat Mal to his favourite hotcakes breakfast! It is going to be a long journey for him and we hope this little treat will brighten his day.0
