Underwater World At Air Terjun Batu Berangkai, Kampar

Well, actually there is nothing to talk about, just wanna post some random photos during my last minutes vacation to the nearest waterfall from my house, at Kampar. About 40 minutes away from Teluk Intan by car, we drove there and reached at about 11.30 in the morning and just straightly went in for about 2 hours as we finished at 1.30 and directly went back home.

We oftentimes came here for a chilling water atmosphere. Besides it closest destination from home, the people that patronizing this area is way fewer that other waterfall namely Lata Kijang or Kuala Woh perhaps. For more bout this place, HERE. This time thanks to my camera with it capability to go underwater without broken, we capturing photos peacefully under this crystal clear water that is surely you can't get elsewhere.

Three brothers. Mate bajet korea.
Floating in the water. Bubble of oxygen.
Barely open-eyes and duck lips.
Acting natural and cool. Nahhh~~
My sister and big brother.
Finally, that me dying underwater. Jernih kan? 
So, if you come and visit Perak next time, instead of going to Lata Kijang, this place is more favourable and  enjoyable. With it large pond that surely can hole larger capacity of visitor compare to Lata Kijang. Finally, I think this waterfall must be one of the attraction of tourism here in Perak for 2020, I don't know. Perhapsss.

Nasi Arab, Bandar Baru Teluk Intan

Long-lost story. Not much to say bout it just wanna write something about a food area for those who wanna visit Teluk Intan cause I know, googling about Halal food in Teluk Intan is kinda suck a little. Mostly the food publish on net is Chinese-based cooking or literally, porky. 

So, here it is Nasi Arab at Bandar Baru Teluk Intan. Basically it has two branch here in Teluk Intan, one here and another one is located at D'Mara Building close to old bus station or Billion Supermarket. This is my first attempt here at the first impression is a thumbs up. Seriously delicious and mouth watering. To those who don't know, it is just in a shops row with Bank Rakyat, opposite to the Restaurant Nikmatt if am not mistaken.

Mostly here, they serve Nasi Arab. It is either with Ayam Mandi or Lamb. And there is also set for the dishes where the Nasi Arab will be served together with a beverages, sour sauce, dalca and tom yum soup. If am not mistaken, for lamb it cost you approximately MYR14.00 and half price, MYR7.90 for the Ayam Mandi Set.

Stolen from uncle google.
My brother's portion. Every penny is worthy. Just look at the generous portion of the lamb. 
For me, instead of having Nasi Arab, I gave the Burger Bakar BAZOOKA a chance as it said this is the first burger bakar here in Teluk Intan. With it reasonable price, I picked BeefSheezooka Single and it cost me just MYR10.00 Worthy cause the meat is super thick plus the cheezy taste of the burger is truly there. Besides the ordinary dairy milk cheese, there is also an addition of the cheese sauce in this burger. If at KFC it was used on the top of Cheezy Wedges. So, just imagine how cheesy could it be. Yummy and my tummy is so full. Even this one can be shared between me and my brother.

Selection available for the burger.
My help, BeefCheezoka Single. Amazingly nice
Just look at the thickness off the meat will directly make me drool again. Hmphhh.
Some, this is some more food that is available here in Teluk Intan. But actually to enjoy more food, I preferred during day-light cause Teluk Intan is a little bit old fashion where youngster sill stay home at night instead of wandering in the town means mostly of the shops or outlets is closed.

Big Bad Wolf : The World's Biggest Book Sale

Oh gosh, it was like a surprise for me to be surrounded by almost 30 millions books during the book sale previously. The event was a success for me cause there was like hundred of people flooded in the exhibition hall choosing book to be read or at least as the accessories at their own home library. There were multiracial people here, Malay, Chinese, countable Indian and a few foreigners and thank god I did not spot any Indonesian or perhaps Bangladesh. LOLed.

The book that perhaps you can only buy at the rate MYR120 at the book store, you can get it for MYR20 here. Just try to imagine with more then twenty section; adult, romance, reference, children, economy and many more with countless number of books, one or two hours here won't be enough. Believe me. It was like a very unforgettable experience for me. 

By the way, am not sure either there was people whose buying 30 to 40 books are to read them or just perhaps make their home library looking more amazing, means just for exhibition. Enough with the words cause the event had already ended on 23 of Disember and it is my fault to upload it quite or maybe very late due to my very own personal thingy. Kew3x.

At the entrance. Excited
Over view of le people and le books on sale.
Books that you never thought exist also available. FART, please.
Browsing thru the books.
More books. Just look at the staging of the book, millions.
Evem Justin Bieber book is sold at MYR15.00. Bitch please
So, for this year it ended already and hopefully it will be held again next year cause this is such a good way of promoting semangat membaca among citizen of Malaysia thus improving our reading, thinking and problem solving skills.

Kilim Geoforest Park, Pulau Langkawi

This post won't be long cause most of it will just be photos. Yeah, a photo-line story. Basically, this is one of the main activities that we had done back in Langkawi Island last two weeks ago. But due to the hectic life, it took me quite a while to post bout it. Plus, there are lots more post in line to be published so just enjoy the photo okeyh.

Basically the trip for the rented boat can be divided into few packages based on the hour, for example you can choose either to take one or two or three and perhaps four hour journey by boat and for different time frame will absolutely have different charges. For us, we took two hours package and instead of paying at normal price MYR350, we were just asked to pay MYR250. Maybe it was our lucky day perhaps. Up to my notice, for one hour it cost you aroung MYR180 and the number of passenger on the boat may be variables but still be rational and logical. Just don't board a boat with 100 people in it cause you know why rite?

Plus, plus, enjoy the photos and the trip to the Kilim Geoforest Park too. Will definitely want to be here again but instead of boat, am hoping for a yatch. LOLed.

The Kilim Geoforest Park.
Prepare to go on board. Photo time.
First destination; Gua Kelawar. Perhaps mijan is just to scare of darkness.
The interior. Btw it is not too long thou the cave. Just bout 10 minutes walk.
Me and ma sissy. Weird smile huh. At the corner of the cave surrounded by Paya Bakau.
Second destination; Fish farm in between of caves stranded out of nowhere.
Exciting me with the Belangkas. There is also shooting fish here that is just love to shoot.
Me enjoying the water blast. Am not peeing, its the water.
Third destination; Gua Buaya or Crocodile cave. Perhaps, there is nothing here cause yeah, it is just name, no more crocodile live here.
The view and scenery along the way.
Fourth pit stop; Eagle nest. Pardon the camera. It is my phone cause the camera's battery just dead.
Spot that shadow, it is an eagle.
Last stop; Pulau Kasut. See that the island is look alike like a shoe rite.
Up till here, we start to direct back to the jetty. After the caretaker motioned us out of the boat, we just went back to our guest house and prepare to go back home on the next morning. The experiences were totally meaningful and I just loved it to the max. Am really looking forward to more of this kind of occasion.

More Discovery Of Langkawi Island

Yeah, lots more to go for me to write bout my previous vacation to Langkawi Island cause there was like thousand of sacred memory to be told. The island was a total epic and skeptic, totally lost in my thought. Finish with a little tour around Pekan Kuah on the first day, our second day is more adventure and more exploration. Full of excitement and feeling of eager to know surely.

Early in the morning, we all off our Amara Guest House and went for our simple breakfast at the stall nearby. Just having roti canai and ordinary breakfast dishes; nasi lemak, bihoon, mee etc.As I said before, there is like no special food that can only be founded here is Langkawi, just a normal food available.

Amara Guest House, Place we stayed in for 3 days 2 nights.
The stall at the road side. We had most of our lunch, dinner and breakfast here. 
Nasi Lemak and telur mata.
Another simple malaysian breakfast. Roti planta but I don't know the planta taste is gone.
For kids, this angry birds apam is attractive enough to persuade them taking breakfast.
Finish breakfast and without further a due, we just start to travel across to and fro of the island cause yeah we have time constriction to be followed and if we procrastinate the time, we would not be able to visit the whole island is not it. And I start to think that does not the inhabitants of this island bored cause yeah, their mainland is like so small, within 2-3 hours the whole road on the island can be travel without any pit stop. See! So how did they survive living on this island for like 20-30 years. Puffff.

For these vacation, am the one who becoming the tour guide. For every destination and event road chooser was 100% based in my decision. So, our first destination is Tanjung Rhu Beach. My first impression was like, Omai Allah, so beautiful and I don't really know how to put it in a good words cause you know, the view make me total speechless. 

Me and this free distributed map. Btw this map is really useful even it is not drawn by scale, it really helpful. Believe me.
First destination, Tanjung Rhu Beach that is about 30 minutes away from Pekan Kuah. Beautiful rite. With that there island behind, perghh totally amazing and gorgeous.
Super duper crystal clear water here at Langkawi Island. Nice, really.
Widely open white sandy beach. The sand is so so perfectly halus and the beach is clean. Unlike Teluk Batik thou.
Beautiful and skeptic huh. I already be here and am proud of it.
More photos on the beach. 
Seem like not in Malaysia rite. It just too awesome.
More photos.
After staying for about an hour here, we packed again to move to the next location cause yeah, we are not going to stay here in this island for a week plus plus. So the nest location is just 15 minutes driving, Durian Perangin Waterfall. Amazing place thou. Without googling I even can guess why is this place named this was. First the word durian is due to the durian trees that grew across this waterfall and the word peringin is because of it chilling atmosphere that is so dingin.

Titi Gantung crossing the waterfall.
Overview of the waterfall
The upper part of the waterfall. Chilling, very.
We are not staying here for a long while. Just for a bout 45 minutes, then we headed of to the Perdana Gallery or also known as Galeri Perdana. Just about 10 minutes away, we drove there. But at this waterfall, there was a souvenir shop selling pearls thingy like bracelets,, ring as well as necklace that will surely make the women turn to a monster. Besides, coral reef, shell, as well as photo frames, Tee, hat also been sold here.

Arrived at the Galeri Perdana, we asked for the entrance fee and for Allah sake, it is MYR5.00 per person. What a waste, paying that much just to observe and antique, historic figurine. So, we didn't get in cause a way to save budget is not to enter any museum where the information inside can be easily obtain thru google. But still where snap few photos outside the building so that when people asked either I've been here or not, I can proudly say, yes I am.

Photo'ing with le Bahtera Purba.
The structure of the Galeri Perdana. Beautiful, rite. 
Another ship stranded outside the building. Its free to visit here but to enter the gallery, you must pay MYR5.
As we intentionally didn't planned to get in, we just stay here for a bit before continuing our journey back to Pekan Kuah to pick up abang baya. There, we stopped by at the Legendary Park before going for our lunch and back to the guest house for a little refreshment and performing our obligation before continuing our adventures.

A3 on action at this beautiful park, Legendary Park. BTW, this park is a huge park.
A small view of the park.
Sweet lovey dovey couple at the entrance.
My lunch drink. Lai Chee Kang, even it a little weirdly taste.
My Nasi Goreng Ayam. Love the sauce.
After taking a short nap, we were all headed to the Jetty Kilim for more adventure and excitement. Wheeehaaa. But on the way there, there is a few complication that cause our schedule to run a bit late but still it is bearable and forgivable. Our rented car was broken and what is worse the break is nonfunctional. Almost our car hit the front car. But thanks to Allah, as Abg Arip is professional enough to avoid the hitting mitting incident and we are all safe. Phewww. Attention to everyone those who want to rent a rented car, ensure it safety first wokeyh.

The broken MPV. It is just not about money, it also waste our golden time here in this island.
Frustration and unsatisfied with the rented car services.
Kilim Geoforest Park.
Me and the billboard. Sweating huh.
 This visitation to Kilim Geoforest Park was like the main part of this trip. Will absolutely have a special post bout it later. Next, we off to Beras Hangus but unfortunately, the place was closed already for that day. Its okeyh, at least we have the image of this place and hopefully there will be next time for us to be here to pay a full visit here. Hopefully~~~

As, the day had turn nite, we decided to go for our last dinner on this Allah granted island with it scenery that is truly gorgeous and fantabulos. We went for seafood that nite but due to my non-DSLR camera that already habis battery, my phone camera that is cap kuda laut, the food look so pitiful but anyhow is amazingly delicious and mouth watering. Close your eyes cause the photo may be a little sensored.

 ~~~Am deciding not to upload the photo as the images are too pitiful.

 That nite remark our visitation to this Langkawi Island. On the nest morning we just headed to Pekan Kuah for some final shopping before went to jetty for another final shopping. Till then my total damages up till now is MYR290. But still there is lot of catch I brought home from here and am really happy with this trip.

First catch, my new perfume from le cote de parfume. Cost me MYR183. 
Small portion of the glassware bought here.
White tee as the souvenir. 
A must bought chocolates when you are here from Haji Ismail Group.
Lastly, transporting all the mess together back home.
Everything was mesmerised for me to be here. I like here sometimes more in the future cause there is still a part of this island I still didn't travel in and hopefully will. So, sayonara Langkawi Island.
