So you can imagine how happy I was when we finally reached our destination.

We quickly changed in the toilets and kept all our belongings in the lockers. The lockers only cost $0.40 per locker and this had remained the same since we were kids!
Beside the lockers is a counter where you can rent floats at just $2 per float! Cheap eh! However, you'll need to pay $5 per float as the additional $3 would only be refunded after the safe return of the float.

So what do lazy people do? Why, hang out at the lazy river of course!
|Floating down the lazy river|
Me: "OMG! Baby, what are you doing?! Do you think you can swim already? No no no!"
Baby Girl (still struggling to get into the water): "Yeah yeah.."
Passerby swimmers (laughing and pointing): "Ohh look, so cute!"
Yes, that's how much she loves the water! So I had little choice but to get off the float and go through the middle of it so that baby girl and I can have half our bodies in the water. You would think she would be scared by the current, but noooo.. she loved it! Parents floating by us were half astonished and half worried that she would drop through the hole of the float right into the water.
Before you judge me, you must know that the float fitted around both of us pretty tightly and her mummy is a pretty good swimmer. There were times where I had to stop the float in the middle of its drift to wait for my mum who was lagging behind and yet I was able to hold my position for more than 5 minutes.
So before you go and try this with your own kid, you gotta know that it ain't that easy but really really fun for both you and your baby =)
In addition to the lazy river, there is also a wave pool in this swimming complex!

When we went back to the lazy river later, she nearly fell asleep on my mother's lap while their float drifted down. That was our cue that it was time to go..
And although baby girl was dead tired, she left extremely happy and satisfied.
|"Mummy that was fun!! Can we come again? Please?!"|
We'll definitely be back! =)
