Time Out Malaysia Kids - - Contents - Caramella Scarpa Editor editor@time­out­malaysia.com

IT’S THAT TIME OF year again – school hol­i­days, the fes­tive sea­son and the end of an­other year. To say time flies is an un­der­state­ment, espe­cially when you have kids. I woke up one day and my 13-year-old is big­ger and taller than me! But, I di­gress. The end of the year is a great time to take the fam­ily on hol­i­day, and this time round how about go­ing all cul­tural on them and vis­it­ing beau­ti­ful des­ti­na­tions like Luang Pra­bang or Siem Reap (p 68)? No kids clubs, theme parks and flash­ing lights – just an­cient ar­chi­tec­ture and tem­ples. They may moan about it now but they’ll thank you some­day.

The end of the year also is also the sea­son of the mighty sale, which is great for those do­ing their Christ­mas shop­ping and stock­ing up on school sup­plies for the start of the New Year. When you have young kids there are cer­tain malls that must be avoided at all costs if you want to re­main sane; but luck­ily for us there is a good se­lec­tion of fam­ily-friendly malls (p 10) which have all the ap­pro­pri­ate fa­cil­i­ties and shops. Still on the sub­ject of shop­ping, we tell you where to get the cutest, fur­ri­est, most colour­ful sta­tionery (p 46) just in time for the start of the new term. Your kids will have a lot of free time on their hands this hol­i­day sea­son, which is a great op­por­tu­nity for them to fo­cus on sports with these clubs (p 37), par­tic­u­larly those who want to bring their game to an­other level and fo­cus on com­pet­ing. Ask about the club’s hol­i­day pro­grammes.

We wish you a fab­u­lous end of year and here’s looking at an even bet­ter 2017 – on­wards and up­wards!
