This probably not really a new things to tell, but i think i might just want to share with those who wish or going to fly with your small kids. When i fly back to sabah recently, the 1/2 way to KK was a total disaster as both my kids refused to sit still and Inesha's didn't want to sit on my lap..(Infant has no seat so she had to sit on my lap). We were lucky as the plane still has lotssssss of empty seats and the Stewardess allows my kids to sit whereever they want. So as quick as they can, Isaac and inesha choose the seat next to the window and no matter how i coax daughter to sit with me, she didn't budge from her spot. Some more screaming pulak when i want to carry her.
So what happend in the first hour of our journey...! Hmmmm..son spilt his hot choc on the carpet..and daughter (cacing tidak pandai diam) drop a whole plate of pasta on the carpet too. Pengsan the mother want to tend her two kids in the plane. (Hubby was nicely snoozing all the way from KL - KK! Bikin panas eh!!) So what i did to quiet my kids was....Jeng..jeng..
Gave them a magazine to browse! I was lucky that day as MAS has a magazine that contains lotsssssss of superhero pix. Ada Batman (Dark Knight), Incredible Hulk, Spiderman and wohooo..that surely caught son attention and quiet him down. I let daughter play with the seat belt and that works a wonder too..Inesha keep buckling and unbackle the seat belt and give me the peace i needed Hehehehee!!!
However, magazine and seat belt only last for 30 mins and at that time, we had 1 hour before we reach KK. What i did was, ask lotsssssssssssssssss of papers for my kids and yipeeeee!!! The papers work like a magic to my kids..hehehe! For 1 hour, i had a peace and quiet journey while my kids was busy with their 'work'. Isaac, as usual lah..he drew his fav incredible hulk, hellboy and Uncle moster, while inesha, scribbling the paper without making any sounds...hehe
So if any you want to travel in peace with your kids or nephews or nieces, just give them lotssss of paper and if possible a colour pencils because i'm sure, your journey will be a peaceful one. hehee
