 26/5/2022 to 16/6/2022  Family retreat with May

With the opening of the borders down under, my sister May immediately booked her flight back home.  

It was a tearful reunion with my sister Yoke who had a stroke and brain surgery in end 2019.   It had been a  long road of recovery since and todate she is still unable to speak  but she made it vocably through her tears.

With May around, we decided to make a maiden trip with Yoke to test whether she was able to handle trips as an OKU.  So we made a short trip to the Avani Goldcoast Sepang Resort and everyone enjoyed the short break.   All went well except the getting in and out of the van. 

Here are some of the activities that we did together besides cooking some of  her favourite foods like vinegar pig trotters, black herbal jelly and cakes and pastries.

First stopover Putrajaya.

We wanted to visit the Morocan Pavillion but it was closed for renovations. 


We arrived at the resort and we were able to check in early.  Plenty of time to relax and enjoy her afternoon nap.
