Travelling with toddler KL 1

11 Jan. Wow! Finally some peace and no idea how long this will last.

Never have I thought it would be THIS hard to onboard a flight with a child! However on the positive, Zayyan wasn’t crying on top his lungs and has been manageable so far, with a phone and tab.We are travelling to Kuala Lumpur. I’ve prepared for 300 diapers and 5 tins of formula for the 5 week vacation…and lots of food and snacks.

So far, just from Adelaide to the flight has been very difficult. Mainly due to luggage. We left the stroller as I’ve have to pay $30 per kilo for the extra weight. If luggage was too many, hand luggage was out of control. We left the stroller as I’ve have to pay $30 per kilo for the extra weight. If luggage was too many, hand luggage was out of control.

In the flight, Hasib and I moved like tortoise…I had 4 hand luggage. Hasib was with Zayyan and his baby bag. To top that, it looked like our seats fell all over the cabin. It was embarassing but if you have kids, embarassment has no priority. The flight had many family and kids, all facing the similar issues. So we swapped and it worked out in the end. We three sat together. Ma dad and Sara on seperate rows, unfortunately.

Husband isnt too impressed with Malaysian Airlines. His experience with Singapore Airlines was more impressive. Then again, he was travelling single. Husband and I never did a long flight together by ourselves. We were hoping to sit together, hold hands, chat away the flight… This is our first flight together and the most romantic moment is now, while he is asleep peacefully, the child lying next to me. And I can write.

Listening to Green Day…Billboard 2005 when I was living in Malaysia. What a feeling…will be there after 12 years!
