After Alias dropped us off back at our hotel we thought we would take the kids for a quick swim and then get ready to head out and explore the main parts of Malacca. Luckily we decided to go check out the pool before getting everyone ready. This is what we found:
The Malaysian flag is pretty much everywhere. I liked this one with the blue backdrop on our walk.
Both of the kids ended up in bed with us that night and look how cute they looked in the morning. :)
"For how many days?"
"How many days have we lived there? Or how many days will live there?"
"How many days you visit Singapore?"
(We went back and forth several times.)
"We live there. I don't understand. We will live there until December. So 7 months. However many days that is."
"Okay...I put 90 days."
Keep in mind that every five seconds Tatum is telling me she needs to go potty and holding herself. I am pretty much sweating bullets, afraid that we are going to leave a puddle of pee right there in line. Ahhhhh! Long story short he didn't even need those stupid papers with a spot for how many days we were going to be in Singapore. When he saw we had dependent passes, he just tossed them aside! Finally we were free to go. Of course the only bathroom available are port-a-potties, right beside the bus parking. So I open the door for Tatum but she is slightly afraid of port-a-potties and they are a little high so she needs help, but I have Declan. So I put him down and he immediately bolts. I hurry and put her on and tell her I'll be right back and run after Declan. I run back and open the door to find Tatum bawling and saying I scared her. I'm sure it was quite a scene for all the people already waiting in their buses.
Another forty minutes or so on the bus and again, he just pulls over to the side of the road and gets out without a word. Such an odd way of doing things. But we made it!
P.S. The immigration stuff reminded me of what happened on the way there. On the Singapore side the lines were loooong and slow. Everyone was admiring our kids and one lady in the next line over got out her camera and took a picture of Tatum. Unfortunately no cameras are allowed and she got caught. Lots of yelling, pointing fingers, blaming others, and other genuine ridiculousness ensued before she finally just handed over her camera and I would assume the security guard deleted it. I know they are cute, but a picture of our kids is not worth breaking the law in Singapore lady! :)
