Today is the day, when Lee and Tan families fly to Redang, for our weekend getaway.
We will be flying Berjaya Air, and staying at Berjaya Redang for 4D3N.
All packed and ready
Seletar airport is situated in Seletar Camp, in some ulu corner.
We have not been to this airport before, and even our propeller plane is our first try. After a few twisting left/right, our taxi uncle brought us to our Terminal.
We have cleared custom. No Contraband.
Look at Xin, she knows we are going for a holiday.
All the kids are anxious..where is our plane?

Actually camera is not allowed, but.. we cannot resist ..snap sNap.

View of Airport strip..
Chloe is quite a little talent, providing inflight entertainment, and she can sing well too :)
One photo before takeoff.
Yi is No1 when it comes to playing who-sleeps-first :)
Video : Touchdown, after a short 90 min
Kids pose again.. noticed we got a Ben10 gang. Fierce !!
Views of Redang and surrounding island from the top is splendid.
Waiting for Taxi at Lobby

Our HillView room layout. Or you can add 100Rm for SeaView.
**We were ready to settledown, when the kids screamed Ants aNts!!
Literally hundreds of ants had camped in our room, luckily we could switch room.
Would hate our babies to become ant bait when we sleep.
Restaurant with view of pool, it sure kept the kids excited.
In the evening, we trek outside to kampung for dinner. It was very dark, but luckily Isaac got a handy torchlight. Some forumers had recommended the second restaurant "Hamze", but our experience proves otherwise. Maybe we got the wrong stall in the dark??
Price is cheaper than Resort's, but quality is only so so. RM 140 for 4 adults, and 5 kids.
Yi and Xin were knocked out for the evening, as it was a tiring day for them.
Wei and Kang still got to work on Daddy's fish bait :)

Daddy : the flight was comfortable and short. Earplug is not necessary for kids, as we had initially thought propeller plane would be Louder. However, passengers could be more "sensitive" to turbulance, due to smaller air-frame (48 seater).
However, a little turbulance is nothing, compared to sored backside from eight hour coach ride :p Would definitely take air route for future Redang trips!!
