Yes, entry updated daily for this week. I told you, i already had draft the entry. So its just some touch up and publish. Hahaha. Again, i compress2 vacay in one entry. Most of our pictures been upload in facebook, i just upload 2-3 pics here only. Aye? Ayeeee
Farm In The City, Seri Kembangan
The trip was in April. Hubs already in Hosp Sg Buloh for his course. So that time, i was back and forth from kelantan to subang jaya. Hubs cant take annual leave as credit hours count, so we only had weekend to spend. Actually i want to go to Zoo Negara, but since its located in Ampang, too far and they say less animals nowadays, we decided to go here. Its 15minutes from our home, like seriouslyyyy. By 10am, we reached, paid the tickets and walaa, ealy birds got the good catch! Hahaha
The front entrance
The farm is in average size, not that big that you need some air to catch your breath, nor that small that you think it just waste the money. It is like one way roundabout. So we started with the tortuoise/turtle village, yes we can feed all the animals. Staffs will give kangkung, helped take pictures, etc.
The bird village
The rabbits village
And animals are freely explore
Luckily, when we reach here, its feeding time
They got reptilia house. If you have kids, bring along and they will have a lot of fun. They got horse riding at certain time. And also parrot show. I cant remmber the price tickets. But way cheaper than zoo negara. Hahaha. Go checkout their website okay. For hands-on experiences, i think this place is really great for kids.
Pulau Perhentian, Flora Bay Beach Resort
Next vacay always be our sweet memories. Why? If everything related with beach and ocean, will be the top list. Aye? Ayeee. Hahaha. After the final exam and able to get long leave, hubs decided to go to short getaway to island. And i asked which island. He was fine with other island, however, im the one who cant get long leave, so we scout on nearest island around pantai timur, so wala Pulau Perhentian!!!
Since im not used to the islands in peninsular, only survey through websites. A lot of pretty deal package bha provided. Just checkout www.pulaupulau.com. Their package includes with full set of meals, accomodation, boat transfer, snorkelling trip, etc. In case you are backpacker style, well, a lot of options in instagram or facebook. Just know your budgetand kindly book early. Not wise for island trip from october till december yar. Its tengkujuh season. Our trip was end of august, still, got heavy rain on night.
There are 2 island of Pulau Perhentian, Kecik dan Besar. In the website, the Besar island hv all the facilities with school, klinik kesihatan. So, we decided to find resorts in Besar island, so that we can explore the activities there. However, once we reached there, turns out the resort we choose is situated in Kecik island. Still ok lor.
When i searched for room, i prefer use booking.com. I dont know why, maybe the interface of the websites more friendly. Hahaha. From there, can select criteria you want. I usually pick the good review and affordable budget. You must stick tp your budget and compromiseeeee. I also checked the resort websites, their promotions andddd honeymoon package. So we decided to choose the Honeymoon Package Flora Bay Beach Resort around rm 14++. And that includes complimentarty fruit basket, special gift, a bouquet of flowers, candle light dinner at the beach, snorkelling trip to all points, full set of meals, a tour to windtrip, a garden view room with boat transfer. Excluded the marine park ticket yar.
Like i mention before, if you are backpackers or prefer to add on later on, you guys can just book the rooms and add on the snorkelling later on. No problemo. It just when im the one who arrange it, i prefer to make it everything ready. We just bring ourselve and enjoy the vacay. Hahahaha. Each resort had different boat time, so you guys need to aware the time, which suit your time's plan.
We drove from machang around 10am and reached besut near to 12pm. Tak tunggu lama pon dekat office diaorang, terus ke jeti and off we went by speed boat. Honestly, its waaaay different with my experience in Mabul island. In Mabul trip, the resort had their own boats and for their guest. In this trip, we were in the same boat with others guest of different resorts. The journey took around 30-45 minutes and maybe longer based on weather and waves and which resort of you staying. Ours been the last which gave us overall view of both island. And it nice weather. Alhamdulilah.
This was our room. Upon emailing them, i asked if i can change and add on the room to sea view room, unfortunately no availbility since its weekend time. But seriouslu, no regret on garden view. From the balcony, you still can see the ocean and the white beach and it just 10-15 walks to beach and the cafe. The rose petals and the swan. Im melt. Hahaha.
This was the entrance. No, we dont bring the monopod. I told hubs, i wanna fefeling mat saleh, so he brought the beach hat for me. Hahaha. We reached here around almost 2pm i think. Terus check in. Nice arr. got complimentary drinks and the staff wished happy honeymoon. Oo yarr. Hahaha.
The first day, we spend our time like this. Luckily we came early, we got the good spot. Its nice. Really. Somehow you slow down a bit.
The second day, we got the snorkelling trip at 5 points. Nemo point, turtle point, baby shark point, another fish point and coral point. You dont have to go to maldives or borocay just to explore the coral. Here in Malaysia, we also had amazingly coral view with bautiful blue ocean. Trust me.
This was the last point. Got fresh waterfall and we can clean up a bit before head back to resort. Sorry, no photos during snorkkelling time. We dont bring our waterproof camera nor bought the waterproff case for mobile phones. To be honest, i dont really like the idea of bring phones near to salt water. Im clumsy person. And my ip5 had terrible impact due to my clumsiness. Yes, i fixed it and cost me rm 3++!! Thank you but no thank you, i bought the ip6 but that will another story. Hahaha.
On the way head home, they drop us to Kampung Nelayan. Its not part of the trip but you can asked the boatman, he surely can bring you. No biggie. Kampung nelayan located ta Kecik island. Got the clinic and school and activities. We had our lunch there. The sotong bakar and the udangs were huge and delicious. Well, dah lapau, semua sedap. The prices affordable.
This was the candle light dinner on the second night. Actually the staff already set up our table at the beach, seriousLy!! But due to the weather, heavy rain, we had to change the plan. But, it still nice.
Sorry for unmatch attire and see how my shawl end up. I slipped that evening, when board on boat after the windtrip. Try to protect my hip from hit the slippery rock, i let my right arms hold entire pressure. Bruises around knee, scratch and bleeding a bit. The only severe was my right arms. Swollen like apple. And the pain score 7-8. Hahaha. Try not to cry, but surely the tears as thats the only way to communicate. The manager wanna send us to clinic, but the heavy rain and huge wave was not good combination. We managed. Hihi. So literally, hubs helped me in shower, get me dressed up, help me lilit the shawl and wore the brooch. Till death do us apart, ha? Hahaha. I ate used my left hand, when come to chicken chop, hubs helped cutting it to small pieces. We enjoyed the banana split, mushroom soup and watermelon juices. A bouquet of flower always the best gift.
The next day, we got the 12 pm boat transfer, the 8am was impossible with my condition. Hahaha. We straight to clinic, got the xray not broken or fracture just severe soft tissue injury and i got mc, thank God. Got massage and literally cry for post-trauma. Hahaha.
Somehow i realize im not chubby, im fat in that picture!! Hahaha. Im gaining weight after all. From 42kg, when i met him to 46kg during engagement period to 53kg in that picture. So i come to senses, and try to control my carbs and manage to control 50-52kg. Well, without excersie, the losing weight graph is platue.
Till next vacay.
