Celebrate my 12th Birthday at Ice Age Alive

I'm going to be 12 soon which is the end of my childhood. A bit sad but when I think that I'll have more freedom soon once I am in the Teenager zone, actually I am quite happy with it. Ha ha ha... To celebrate my turning point, I had invited my school friends to join me at my Ice Age theme birthday party at Ice Age Alive which is happening now at MATIC i.e. Malaysia Tourism Centre which located at Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur.

Wearing my favourite blue colour t-shirt with a photo of the Lion Dance which was customised made by my Mom with the word of "Han, LD Boy". Han is my name and LD stand for Lion Dance. Yes... I am a Lion Dance Boy. Yeah...
Besides celebrating my birthday, there are other 4 kids who were there to celebrate their birthday too. We actually had a mass celebrations with guess up to 100 who had attended this meaningful event. Happy Birthday to the other kids too.
Looks like I am the oldest amongst all the kids here but that did not prevent me and my friends to enjoyed ourselves with our favourite animals of Ice Age cartoon live at the exhibition and joining the fun activities.
Read some facts about the dinosaurs here before you go in to explore

The animals here are very big. More than 3 times bigger than my size and the best thing is, they able to roar at the coolest place in town. At here, I saw my Shelly, Tyrannosaurus Rex; Sid, Ground Sloth; Diego, Saber-Tooth Tiger, Manny, Ellie and Peaches, the family of Wooly Mammoth; Gavin, the Dino-Bird and lots more. All of them are my favourite characters at Ice Age Adventures and it was great to see them live.
Ice Age Alive also organised some dance activities for the children and we were fortunate to have Fly FM who had organised some games and Q&A about the dinosaurs of Ice Age for all of us to win some prizes which include their limited edition t-shirts, potato chips and limited edition of Ice Age merchandise. I won a prize from Fly FM too for successfully twist to free my hands. Yeah...
After the activities and the games, we had a birthday song and cake cutting ceremony. The Dinosaur theme cake is really nice together with the awesome backdrop. We had a group photo taken with my friends.

We had a light refreshments after that. I like their spaghetti, sausages, sandwiches, colourful donuts and fruits.
After our refreshments, we proceed to go back to the Dinosaur exhibition area to enjoy our ice skating, snow pool and jumping castles. Some of my friends went to the game booth for the fishing activities to win some prizes.
Beware coz' T-Rex will be walking around with its fierce roaring sounds. He might catch you around the exhibition area or the jumping castle area and scared you off. It can made you laugh and it can also made you cry. To look out for T-Rex in actions at Ice Age Alive.

Don't miss this opportunity to have your birthday party here nor meet up the giant beast of Ice Age Alive. Me and my friends love the cooling area while enjoying our ice skating session surrounded by our favourite Ice Age animals who will roared and move their bodies. Their size is more than twice bigger than our body and when we are there, these animals look like a real one to us.
Thanks to Ice Age Alive for organising such a great birthday party to me. It is one of the best party that I ever had. I will always remember this date where I had celebrated my special day with all my favourite animals of Ice Age Alive with my best friends and family members. Special thanks to my teacher and my buddies for celebrating these day with me. Thanks for the presents and ang pau. I truly appreciate our friendship and hope we able to meet up again after we finished our primary school soon. Right now, let's work harder to pass our UPSR exam with flying colours. Ha ha ha...

Kids Lion Dance Competition

We are the Champion and We are the Champion. I'm proud to announce that 2-Junior-Rangers were the Champion for the Kids Lion Dance held recently at Atria Shopping Mall. I'm WH will be reporting my experience at this post.
I love Lion Dance so much since I was just a little boy. My Mom at first don't agreed for me to learn the movement because I was too small and she afraid I will lost my concentration in study but I never give up. I persuade my Mom till she give up and let me learn at my school. Every lesson that I attended, my Mom will pay RM10 coz' most of the times, my Mom was too busy to fetch me there. 
When I was in Standard 5, lion dance is part of my co-curriculum and I faster register for it. Every Friday is the moment that I always looking for coz' after my school, I could join the lion dance class for an hour. After a year of training holding the lion dance head, me and my friends were send to Pavilion to perform during the World Lion & Dragon Extravaganza in conjunction with Visit Pavilion 2018. The Star paper had published our winnings out. Their article at this link https://www.thestar.com.my/metro/metro-news/2018/02/15/young-lion-dancers-wow-mallgoers-siblings-prance-their-way-to-top-spot-in-festive-competition-that-d/.
This year, I will be in Standard 6 and because the school wanted us to concentrate on our UPSR, all the students at my level unable to join the Lion Dance co-curriculum. I was a bit sad coz' it is my favourite and I wanted to learn more. Touched by my determination, my Mom had asked a coach from Kok Hing Dragon & Lion Dance Association to teach me and my brother since January this year. At first my coach, Eric Chin rejected us because we are too small and all their students are at least in college but Mom persuade Eric to teach us. She showed to Eric my performance at Pavilion and that I have the quality to learn it. Eric, finally agreed and said will train me and my brothers for the Kids Lion Dance Competition which will be held soon.
We started the lion dance movement the following week and every Friday night, from 9pm+ to 10pm plus, we will start our training. Eric was kind enough to borrow the lion dance mascot to practise at home. We were so happy when we able to bring back the mascot that we always had wanted home. We practise it at home after our school and tuition.
To join in the fun, my Sister and my youngest brother form another team. Due to schooling on Sat, my Sister only able to practise 2-3 times where else, me and brother practise around 5 times for the competition. My Mom helped us to register my group name as "Loh's Brother" and my Sis group name as "Mighty One". Check out our video below...

On the day of competition, we a bit nervous. After fetching my Sis from school, we rushed to Atria Shopping Mall to join the competition. There are lots of kids wearing beautiful costumes and prepared to roar the stage. When our turn comes, we just do our best to impress the judges.
The moment came when they announce the winners. My Sis and my youngest brother won consolation prize and we never thought that we will be declared as the Champion. There are many talented kids who compete with us and we were glad that we had won it instead.
Thanks to my Mommy and Daddy for your support that made us the winner. Thanks also to Coach, Eric and his student for teaching us the movement to made us the Champion. Thanks to Atria Shopping Mall for the opportunity for us to shine at this activity and to motivate the young generation to continue with the tradition and thanks to all my readers who had read my post here. Hopefully I will do it better and be the Champion of the Champion for the Lion Dance Movement.

Celebrating my 11th Birthday at Amverton Cove Golf & Island Resort

Hi Everyone, my name is Han. Today I will talk about my experience at Amverton Cove Golf & Island Resort. It is indeed my happiest day because my parents brought me to this Heavenly Resort. It was so beautiful and I love the activities here. Amverton Cove is located at Pulau Carey and it took us just an hour drive from our home at KL.
We reached the Resort at around 3pm after our lunch. Once reached, we check in to our rooms. Daddy and Mommy in a deluxe room while me and my siblings at family deluxe room. Deluxe room had 1 king size bed while family deluxe room had 1 queen size and 2 single size bed. The room was spacious and it is clean. The bed was comfortable and every room comes with a bath tub and a complete set of toileteries.

After settle our baggage in the room, the first place that I went at the Resort is the children playroom. I was surprise to see such a huge room that I could run around and play with my siblings. It was fun and colourful with animal themes at the playroom. Mom said the entrance is free and we could play as long as we want. Yeah...
After playing for an hour when the sun is not too hot, we went to the jetty to sit at a speed boat to go to animal island. Safety jackets were available for all and they even had the jacket for small children. The island is not very far from our Resort. Just 10 minutes boat ride and we already reached there.
Me, my Cher Cher and my Ti Ti. We love to sit boat
Welcome to Animal Island
There are few animals at the island. There are deer, goat, monkey, porcupine, prairie, tortoise, rabbit, fish and others. We enjoyed feeding and patting the animals there. They are very friendly.
We stay at the animal island for around 1 hour 30 minutes because while we are there, my Mommy helps me to do a video for submission as Wildlife Hero. I didn't win the contest but at least I had gave it a try. Introducing the animals and show the beauty of the Animal Island HERE...

Around 6 p.m., we went back to our room and change for swimming time. I love the water slides here. There are pool for children and adult but since I had learned swimming previously, I could swim at the adult pool. The pool is big and it is indeed fun playing at here with my siblings.
The next morning, we had our buffet breakfast at the Rabbit Room which located just in front of my room. The food was delicious and I love the variety of the food here. The fried omelette is freshly prepared by the Chef. There are nasi lemak, fried kuew tiau, roti canai, sausages, wedges, niggets, hams, cereals, cakes, fruits and many more. I just couldn't have it all. Ha ha ha...
After having our breakfast, we went for a paddle boat. Daddy, me and my Ti Ti ride in a swan boat and my Mommy, 2 Cher Cher and youngest Ti Ti at another boat. We had fun chasing each other and helps each other to move to the right direction. We had fun paddle the boat together and see who will be the fastest to reach the ending point. We might lose it to the girls team but at least we had tried our best to paddle the boat at the fastest speed.
After our boat ride, we went for ATV rides. This is the first time I ride an ATV and it was indeed fun. I had to wear safety helmet just for children before I can start riding it. I ride it for 15 minutes round and round and it was like driving a motorbike. It is challenging and I felt like being adult.
After we check out and before we leave the Resort, we went for Archery. Thanks to the friendly Uncle who had taught me and my siblings the correct way to hold the Arrow and shoot at the middle of the circle. Amongst all, I got the most points. Yeah...
If you want to experience all this wonderful stay and activities, do check it out at their website at www.amvertoncove.com and facebook page at HERE. Amverton Cove is having promotion with their stay and activities. Do check out the promotion poster below...

Thanks to Daddy and Mommy for bringing me to Amverton Cove Golf & Island Resort celebrating my birthday here. It was my best birthday gift and I enjoyed myself so much. Thanks to my teacher and my friends who had celebrated my birthday earlier at my tuition centre before we start our journey to this wonderful place. My only wish is to have such a wonderful trip that I had experience at Amverton Cove Golf & Island Resort, to have it every year on my special day. Yeah...
