So what is everybody doing this long merdeka weekend? despite the Bersih rally. parents with kids must be wondering what to do. Tia and Riz's daddy has back to back blood drive so I guess we're stuck at home till he finishes at 5pm. boring. but should you have all your family members today with no plans...here's an idea of what to do today or any of the weekends and public holidays:)
Bring your kids for a pony joy ride and carriage ride at Taman Tasik Titiwangsa.
A few spots in KL do offer pony rides for kids but this park is the closest to us so I brought Tia one Saturday morning. Here's a tip though. be there early. Both of us had a quick breakfast fix before coming. 10.00am is just nice because the crowd builds up at around 10.30am onwards.
The stables and services are managed by DBKL. Clean. not much horse poop smell. or is it because we were there early?
They're open only on the weekends, public holidays and school holidays. And super affordable too. Pony rides are for kids above 4 year old only, RM1 for 1 round. For above 12yo (adult)-RM1.50 per round. tapi malu sikit kot nak naik. hehe
Here's Tia riding her white pony for the first time:
I know I know! her face looked so worried. biasa lah, first timer. I told her whoaa does the pony look like Rarity from My Little Pony? she came down and did a lil victory dance. good job girlie!
Carriage rides are also available within the same area. the rounds are bigger and there are usually 3 carriages operating so the waiting time isn't very long.
This was when Riz J came along:)
Carriage rides are more suitable for babies and smaller kids although they might not know what's going on! But it's a good family activity nonetheless. Family time does not need to be expensive. Go have fun horseriding and have a good weekend everyone!
