Hi! I’m C. I’m 6 and a half years old and mummy has decided to let me do a guest post on my trip to Bali.
Club Med Bali was the best! We got to wear rainbow ribbons on our wrists throughout our stay. The adults got boring plain orange ribbons. Haha.
Mum: Club Med shared the beach with the other resorts. The ribbon was used to differentiate the guests at the beach.
Mummy signed me up for the C’Komo (kids’) club where I got to meet lots of friends. We danced on stage for everyone! I got to wear a pink fairy dress and had makeup on too 🙂
There was also cookie baking (I forgot to bring the cookies back), art and pool games.
Oh, yes, I went kayaking too! The big brother Stanley paddled while I sat in the kayak. We capsized but I enjoyed the experience. Too bad there wasn’t a photo of me on the kayak!
I also got my first try at many new activities. I saw the bungee bounce while touring the grounds with mummy and daddy. Mummy asked if I would like to try it. I didn’t really know what to do at first, but I soon found out how high I could go. Wheee!
I also went up on the trapeze thrice. Mummy watched me climb up by myself. I think she was panicking below since the trapeze was rather high up. I didn’t think it was a big deal since there was a net below to catch me if I fell. I even let one hand go just to see how she would react 😉 I enjoyed both the bungee and the trapeze so much that I wanted to go everyday. But it was a pity that it rained on some mornings.
Mum: She asked to go up the trapeze out of her own accord. Yes, I was both impressed and freaking out at the same time to see my 6 year old swinging all the way up there. I had no idea that she was such a daredevil!
One of the things that I’ve always wanted to do was archery. Initially mummy told me that it was only for children older than 8 years old so I was very disappointed. I was so happy to know that 6 year olds could try it too! I didn’t really have enough strength to pull the bow though, so most of my arrows ended up on the ground. But it was still fun. I’m going to try again next year!
My little brother was too young to join me in the earlier activities (and he was sleeping a lot!), but there were plenty of other activities that we could do together. We played together at the beach. Mummy forgot to bring the toys for sand play but we found a spoon to dig in the sand. I loved to watch my sandcastle being knocked down by the waves.
We also had fun in the pool! It was shallow enough for us to wade around and splash water at one another.
We saw lots of animals at Club Med Bali, and my favourites were the squirrels. There were so many of them and they were everywhere. We saw three of them every morning just outside our room! They were really cute!
There were lots of yummy food at the restaurant, and I had a special tray with different colours for different food groups (I wished all of them were for dessert though) G and I had lots of ice cream and cakes! Yum! I also got to enjoy cocktails with daddy and mummy 🙂
I had so much fun and I didn’t want to go home, but Mummy promised that we would be back again next year. See you Club Med Bali!
Mummy’s note: I asked C what she remembered about this trip and these were her memories 🙂 She had a wonderful time, thanks to the staff there (especially Stanley and Kaori!) It was an eye-opening trip for me too… I had no idea my daughter was so adventurous! I will remember her on the trapeze for a very long time.
What was the most memorable thing you did during the holidays?
