See... lots of shopping, but we were buying souvenirs for Malaysia. We did buy a lot of Coach bags... I think in total about 9 bags. The kids didn't have as much fun during this trip. But we promise them that the real vacation will be in Malaysia, and we'll be going back in less than a month.

And here are some pictures...

We bribed them with ice-cream so that they'll cooperate...

The most fun the kids had during the trip.. the haunted house of wax. The kids thought it was lame.... but Mommy was scared
