Yesterday I forgot to mention that our weekend retreat was sponsored by FBSB, UPM. Most of the staffs under that faculty were invited to join the last activity for their staff club for this year. It was the biggest event that they have ever organized outside of UPM.

Continuation from yesterday's entry:
My hubby and the other staffs finished attending the talk by 12 p.m. We were already very hungry by that time. Fortunately, we had some snacks in the car. So, we ate some snacks while we were waiting for him. Only after 12 p.m., we could check-in the room. We were given a studio room with the Water Park view. It was a fairly decent room.
Our room was in Block A, level 3A . (sorry can't reveal the room no. hehe). So, after we had put all of our bags and things in the room, we went down to one of the cafe there. We had lunch with the other staffs and their family members. The food was okay (not really excellent). Then, we explored in the kids room which was opened after that. My daughters tried the sand art. I had to buy the two sets of sand art which cost about RM4 each! (yup, a marked up price). There were other things in the kids room as well but my daughters were just interested to do the sand art.
Since there was no activities after lunch, we decided to dip in the water. Of course we went up to our room first to pray and change our clothes. The other families also grabbed the chance to try out the water park that afternoon. My daughters were excitedly trying the water slides. They didn't even ask us to accompany them anymore but we still supervise them. I guess it was I who had to supervise them more because I didn't really do anything except for wading in the water. My hubby enjoyed his time-out by trying the other pools. We played in the water until we were so cold and the skin on the fingers had started too wrinkle.
I have to continue in Part 3 tomorrow because there are still a lot of things that I want to share about our weekend retreat. Until tomorrow then...............
