First-hand experience at Getting Highlands Premium Outlets Soft Launch

On the 15th of June, my family and I had the opportunity to head over to the newly-launched Genting Highlands Premium Outlets on its soft launch day, located just 45 minutes from KL! The road long and winding, the kids were enjoying the "roller-coaster" ride to but slept all the way fro. Tired, of course.






I was expecting a slightly colder breeze, but upon arrival it wasn't super chilly, the weather was just nice. Perfect shopping weather, I could say! There were plenty of stores that was just what we were hoping to find - Aigner, Boss, Baskin Robbins (heaven for the kids!), Coach, Godiva (heaven for kids AND mommy :p), Kate Spade, Moschino, Ralph Lauren, Sacoor Brothers and Victoria's Secret, to name a few, and all up to 65% off daily! I'll let the pictures below do the talking.






















We made our rounds, window-shopped and went into stores, and twice even had to go back because I contemplated whether to get the items there or not. But because they were on massive sale and the prices was at such a bargain, hubby gave me the green light to splurge on that day. Love you, hubs! Our next stop was for the kids, a toy store! It was like heaven on earth for them. After they were done grabbing what they wanted, we continued our rounds and saw a playground, so we decided to take a short break and let the kids roam free, playing happily, while mommy sat down and rest. Baskin Robbins were free for the first number of customers so the boys got free ice cream too! Two rounds of ice cream, as they had Godiva earlier. Tsk. 

















We took about more than 4 hours there, but you know time goes by so quickly when you're enjoying yourself, we didn't realise that it was already evening. I really love the structure and architecture of the building, I simply can't capture the beauty of the place itself, you have to go there and experience it (and treat) yourself!

[Auto-saved Post]

No mother would like to see their children struggle with something difficult or get hurt by doing things on their own - but if we don't let them do it by themselves from now, when will they ever learn?

I admit, I'm a very clingy and do-everything-for-them kind of mom instead of letting them try and do tasks themselves. And ever since I started the #LetThemLearn campaign with Wyeth Nutrition, although it's hard, I learned that it's best for my kids to be independent rather than let them depend on me till they grow older - I mean, until when should they depend on others, right? 

But Kenzo has always been independent, even since he was younger. He'd always brush his own teeth, put on his own clothes and shoes, and feed himself - which, as a mom, made me very kiasu because he'd spill everything everywhere! Haha. Not only does this campaign benefit my children, but it also teaches me to be independent and patient too - I have slowly learned to take everything in a positive way and just let them be because after all, they are just children! 

Now, what I have come to realise is my two boys are very different from each other, not only because of age, but even when Kenzo was Xander's age, they're different. Regarding Brain Smart, Body Smart, and People Smart.. Xander has been a real help around the house! When Kenzo was around Xander's age, he used to mind his own business and play by himself, not much of a people person. But Xander likes to help clean, vacuum and mop the house! And he's very friendly with almost anyone.

As he grows older and as he has learned throughout the campaign, Kenzo becomes friendlier and more polite, well-behaved. He listens well now and does as he is told, although Xander is just as cheeky as he has always been! I am very glad to be a part of this journey and to have actually paid more attention to how my children grow and develop, acknowledging their words and actions, knowing their strengths, their weaknesses and what to improve on.

Thank you again, Wyeth Nutrition and S-MAMA Club! :)
