Road Trip to Desaru

My kids and I woke up early that Saturday morning for our road trip to Desaru. The plan was to arrive by noon so we would have enough time to explore the Desaru Coast Adventure Waterpark. The kids were thrilled at having more than enough USB phone charger points throughout the car to charge their devices. I, on the other hand, wanted to test out the cruise control and other safety features the Proton X70 boasted about. And, as keen as I was to try out the voice command, it honestly felt kind of weird to constantly shout instructions at the car!
