Another Wish Come True

THIS TIME, IT was a wish come true for Little Em.

Little Em had longed for snow every time she looks at our winter photos in Moscow. On a warm Saturday of 11th Jan, she finally had her first “snow” (ice, rather) experience, a mere 30 minutes drive from home, at i-City, Shah Alam.

Snowalk is advertised as “50,000 sq feet Artic environment below 5°C… a cold, cold, cold fun adventure starts here in Malaysia’s largest snow play attraction”.

It was cold no doubt, but having seen the real stuff, M and I weren’t impressed with what we saw.  For Little Em, it’s a case of “you won’t miss what you don’t know” so she was exceptionally excited at the start of her “snow journey”… till the cold got to her and she had a little frost bite falling onto a pile of ice. Both girls were not in the mood for any of the winter rides (other than a “chair ride”) and games, so after checking out some ice sculptures and taking some photos, they were glad to be out of the cold!

A quick pix with the lighted snowmen. By then Little Em's misery due to the cold was evident.

At the Trick Art Museum, Little Em embarked on quite an “adventure” … (L-R) Stepping into the unknown; crossing a ravine; hanging on to her dear life on the cliff.

After such a harrowing ordeal, yes, a cup of tea would be nice, thank you! And we could do with a few of those gold coins too!

Predicting my future in i-City… I see “T”… F-A-T!!!

On the whole, we had a lovely time reflecting on our day, just hanging out together :-)

We stayed on to view the digital lights display that comes on at 7pm and boosts of over 1 million LED lights, aptly dubbed as the “City of Digital Lights”.
