Me: Noelle, do you know why we have an off day?
Noelle: 🤷🏻♀️ duno
Me: Because it is the King’s birthday (I know factually it is yesterday 🙄 easier to explain to this soon-to-be 6 yo)
Noelle: 🙄🙄Ya meh? Papa’s birthday?
Me: 🤦🏻♀️🙄😒 Papa is not the king 🤴 🤭
A short visit to the Royal Museum or Istana Negara. We paid an extra fee of RM5 per adult. The kids below 6 yo are free – technically, Noelle not yet 6 yo! 🤣
They were rather amazed with the space – looking into the meeting rooms, waiting rooms,bedrooms, dressing rooms, dining rooms, reading room and even a clinic in the palace. Noelle tried drawing comparison with Disney princesses’ palace and the homes of the ponies. We went two rounds in the palace- and the girls made themselves like at home – running around! 🙄No photo taking in the palace. We have to remove shoes/slippers when we enter.
Personally, I think it is rather creepy in some parts of the palace. Some lights were off/ spoilt. The carpets were rather ‘smelly’ – old and dusty. Towards the king’s bedroom, it became more modern – but to me, it feels like ‘funeral parlour’🤭😂
