Kids (Folk Implosion)

The recent week-long September school holidays was the perfect opportunity for Ooyah to embark on the Kidzania experience, that she had been clamouring for ever since missing out on it during her Jakarta trip with Fadelinah. Whereas for us parents, a good time as any for another food fest in Kuala Lumpur. A few quick bookings and we found ourselves onboard a double decker Transtar coach heading towards the city.

Kidzania is the brainchild of one Mexican genius, basically a family entertainment centre where the kids are given a small token of in-house currency called KidZos, to start their careers, earning and spending their way through the various ‘companies’ and ‘organisations’ within the Kidzania compounds. Thoroughly enjoyable for the kids as they run around working for hours on end. Ooyah took no less than a dozen jobs throughout our 7 hour stay there, including the much-coveted fire fighter, spraying down an ablazed hotel. A surgeon at a specialist hospital was also one of the jobs, the irony. Other jobs at places like Merrybrown and Sushi King would have the kids making their own burgers or bento sets. It is highly likely that we go to Kidzania again before she turns 10, before it all gets to be too lame for her.

The Royale Bintang Damansara, not to be confused with the nearby notorious The Royale Bintang The Curve, was our stay throughout the trip. A decent hotel with nicely furnished rooms and facilities, including an in-house ice skating rink, that Ooyah and I had the chance to skate and fall on the night before our departure. I sure hope that the ongoing courtesy campaign for their staff work, since the front desk staff might be the ones bring down the name of the hotel soon.
