TRAVEL: SEMBAYU VILLA STAYCATION


Another short gateway on weekend. Sembayu Villa is located in Seremban. About 1 hour driving from Kuala Lumpur City Center (depends on the traffic too! =p). It is about 62 KM from the International Airport, KLIA.

Sembayu Villa provides accommodation with a restaurant, free private parking, an outdoor swimming pool, a shared lounge and karaoke room! Before your stay, it is best to book breakfast and dinner package. Or bring your own food. The road is quite steep to drive up if you are thinking of going out for food.


  
Spacious room with balcony, bath tub, hammock and place for you to relax all day facing the nature.


There are few dinner set offers during your stay. We have a set of traditional dish in Negeri Sembilan which was 'Masak Lemak Daging Salai' (Smoked beef in coconut milk) set. It comes with ulam (fresh vegetable), salted egg and salted drief fish too.


There is pool and foosball table that you can use at the main lounge. 
It was a great experience and stay at one luxury room in closed to the nature.



You can book your stay in Agoda or check their website for more! :D

TRAVEL: FAVOURITE'S IN THE ISLAND

Pulau Pinang or well-known Penang, Malaysia. Another trip Penang every other year. Lol! You guys can check out previous post for the details on how to get to Penang by road or ferry.


Good food to try when you are in Penang. I have shared this on my previous post too. But here's a new thing we got, Hameed Pata Mee Sotong. One of the famous noodle here. Believe me, we had to line up for over half an hour to order food here. But it was worth it!






Another interesting street arts found along the way in Georgetowm, Penang. If you are into the art, you can find the creativity almost everywhere here.





There was a nice desk for you to relax and enjoy a drink by the beach too. A lot of ferry and industry ship passing by. It is facing straight to the mainland. The only access to go back to mainland is by ferry or the long bridge.


This trip is different, because we ended up visiting one of the famous historical building belong to KHOO CLAN and it is still maintain by the descendants (I believe). The building structure are in place as you can see the unique and detailing. Watch YouTube channel for FULL VIDEO!

Travel: Georgetown, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia

George Town, the capital city of Penang state, is located on Penang Island in the North-West of Malaysia. It might be Malaysia’s second largest city after Kuala Lumpur, but it’s nowhere near as crazy and in your face as the country’s capital. Especially in its quaint old town centre.
5 Things You Should Explore in Georgetown, Penang
Penang Ferry began its operations in 1920, making it the oldest ferry service in Malaysia. These iconic ferries ply between the Seberang Perai mainland and Penang island, ferrying both passengers and vehicles to and from the island.
The ferries are designed for vehicles to roll-on/roll-off. Some board pedestrian passengers on the upper deck and small vehicles (cars) on the lower deck, whereas some board vehicles on both decks.

The benches for passengers on the upper decks have pivoting backs that can be flipped back and forth so passengers can sit facing in the direction of travel regardless of which way the ferry is going.
The 15 minute ferry ride allows visitors to enjoy the spectacular view of Penang island and serves as a reliable mode of transportation to and from the island.
A fleet of eight ferries, named after the many beautiful islands in Malaysia, the ferries are named Pulau Pinang, Pulau Payar, Pulau Angsa, Pulau Kapas, Pulau Rimau, Pulau Undan, Pulau Rawa and Pulau Talang-Talang ply the waters. Penang Port is unique, in that it is the only port in Malaysia that runs a ferry service, linking Georgetown on Penang Island (Pengkalan Raja Tun Uda) and Butterworth on the mainland (Pengkalan Sultan Abdul Halim)
Important Note:
First ferry from Butterworth to George Town at 05.20 am.
Last ferry to Penang at 00.10 am.
First ferry from Penang Island to Butterworth at 05.40 am.
Last ferry to Butterworth at 00.40 am.
The Penang ferry runs roughly every 20 to 30 minutes, it takes about 15 to 20 minutes to cover the 3km distance.
After 10pm, there are less frequent boats, with just one departure every 60 minutes.

Kapitan’s has made a name for itself and namely, its Tandoori Chicken. Be it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, supper or those unnamed in-between meals, Kapitan’s, while initially boosted to fame with its tandoori chicken, has since gone on to attracting as many customers for its nasi briyani, naans and a rather eccentric mix of a drink, badam milk (pure cow milk boiled with ground almond, cashew nuts and raisins with sugar).

Another specials that you MUST find for breakfast in Georgetown is the toast. “Roti Bakar Telur Goyang” or in English will be Toast and Poaches Eggs. Nothing can go wrong with this toast as it’s traditional toasted on the charcoal. It is located at Roti Bakar Hutton Lane, GPS will help you to find the place. It’s walking distance from  the street art though.

Some shot of the street art in Georgetown that’s one of the attraction to take picture with.

If you would like to visit Georgetown, I would recommend you to stay within the radius of Armenian Street, Ah Quee Street or Beach Street. It is convenient for you to walk around. So have fun!

Travel: Batu Caves, Malaysia


Batu Caves in short also referred as 10th Caves or Hill for Lord Muruga as there are six important holy shrines in India and four more in Malaysia. Located about 13km North of the city centre.

They consist of three main caves and a number of smaller ones. The caves are made of limestone and 400 meters long and 100 meter high. They were discovered in 1892.


The climb was made easy by a pile of angular rocks that over the years of wear and tear had chipped off the face cliff (40foot (12m)).

The Murugan statue was quite a project to build:
  • Cost: approximately 392 830 US$
  • Made of: 1550 cubic meters of concrete and 250 tonnes of steel bars
  • Gold paint: 300 liters
Walk up the stairs and inside the cave, most probably you need less than an hour to explore everything there. And, not to forget to drink coconut on the way down.

The cave is one of the most popular Tamil shrines outside India, and is dedicated to Lord Murugan. It is the focal point of Hindu festival of Thaipusam in Malaysia. The Thaipusam festival. Every year, on Thaipusam, as many as 800,000 devotees and other visitors may throng the caves. As a form of penance or sacrifice, many of them carry kavadis (literally, “burden,” such as a pitcher or jug). These are large, brightly decorated frameworks, usually combined with various metal hooks and skewers which are used to pierce the skin, cheeks and tongue.

Batu Caves is easily reached by Komuter train from Port Klang Route, costing RM 2 for a one-way journey from KL Sentral.

Travel: Night Cruise Pearl River in Guangzhou

One can not be considered to have visited Guangzhou, Pearl River. Night cruise is even more fascinating under the sparkling lights. It starts from the White Goose Pool and ends at the Guangzhou Bridge in the east and Baihedong (White Crane Cave) in the south. This section gave us vistas such as ‘Night Moon over the Goose Pool’ and ‘Red Heart of the Pearl River’. Everyone of us been captivated by the beauty of the Pearl River during this an hour cruise.

The Pearl River is the largest river in southern China and the third largest in China, measuring 2.129 meters in length and covering an area of 453,690 square kilometers. The river flows through the Sea Pearl Rock hence the name. It got a reputation of “Night Moon over the Goose Pool” and was selected as one of the Eight Sights of Guangzhou.
You’ll be captivated by the romantic atmosphere as you admire the sparkling lights of the city skyline. This is a great way to spend an evening in Guangzhou.
