Fun at Mychild
Title: Fun for Kids in Malaysia
Author: Lydia Teh
Publisher: Marshall Cavendish Editions
"What are we going to do during the coming holidays, Mum?" comes the dreaded question from the restless children of a highly frazzled mother with a small budget and no more ideas left in her weary mind.
Fret no more....Lydia Teh offers you salvation in a book called Fun for Kids in Malaysia. At RM29.90 per copy, salvation is pretty reasonably priced, considering that much of our domestic incapacitation stems from a lack of finances in the first place.
Here's a summary of Teh's book:
* A comprehensive guide to child-friendly attractions in the whole of Malaysia conveniently categorised into five regions - Northern; Eastern; Central; Southern; Sabah, Sarawak & Labuan
* Complete with contact details, opening hours, price guide, features and courses
* Listings include places to go for dance classes, cooking classes, art classes and outdoor activities
* Helps parents plan and utilise fully their children’s free time and school holidays (You might find this immediately handy for the upcoming Nov/Dec 2010 holidays!)
About the Book
Quite possibly the first of its kind in Malaysia, Fun for Kids in Malaysia is an organised listing of what to do, where to do it and how you can get it done - all in a slim A5-sized volume. (There is another book titled, Kids in KL by an expatriate couple, which highlights only activities in KL.)
Dedicated to kids, these suggested activities make up a checklist of to-do things when you are planning to go to, or are already at, a specific town/state.
This book is not only helpful to tourists and expatriates but is also relevant to Malaysians who have not yet discovered several under-publicised spots in their own country.
Schools, learning centres, family-based associations, libraries, travel agencies and the Tourism Ministry should consider taking up copies of this book.
About the Author
Lydia Teh has four children who constantly moaned about how boring the school holidays were. She wished this book was written ten years earlier when all her kids were below ten so that she could earn the title of Most Fun-tastic Mom. It is better late than never though. Armed with this book, she would be dragging her brood around Malaysia to have some fun before they reach the age when they would rather hang out with their friends than their parents.
