Family Holiday

The school holiday will be over soon. This year, the family went to Port Dickson and Langkawi Island for our annual getaway. Yes, the theme pretty much centred around the beach. Port Dickson is a quiet town. We visited an ostrich farm an an army museum. We even tried to visit a poultry farm but it is not open to visitors. The army museum was the most interesting throughout this journey.


We stayed at The Regency. The other highlight was the speed boat ride. It rained during the boat ride. As a result, the boat ride was cold and wet especially for the kids. Overall, this trip was simple fun and not too tiring.

We visited Pulau Langkawi a few weeks after the Port Dickson trip. We stayed at the same Holiday Villa Langkawi and rented the same Myvi car from Kasina. We started our holiday with the usual trip to the Underwater World Langkawi upon arrival. This time around, we managed to see the penguin feeding sessions. There was more foreigners in Langkawi compared to last year. Probably, they flocked to Langkawi due to the political instability that occurred in Thailand recently.

On the next day, we wanted to visit the crocodile farm but I missed the turning. That’s the problem with Malaysia tourism. Our signboards and signage pretty much suck big time. Anyway, the good thing came out of this was the visit to the Kilim Geoforest Park which required 2 hours by boat. The entire boat journey set us back by RM 200. Langkawi is definitely not a cheap tourist attraction for Malaysians.

We visited the bat cave, a crocodile cave (just a name sake), saw the eagle feeding session, a fish farm and a speed boat ride out to the sea. I actually received a Digi sms from Thailand. This was definitely the highlight of our holiday in Langkawi this year. If you are going to Langkawi, you have to visit this Kilim Geoforest Park.

The other “must” thing to do in Langkawi is the Langkawi Cable Car ride to Gunung Mat Chincang. We managed to walk to the other end of bridge this year. It started to rain when we walked half way last year. As usual, the weather was cooling. Even the kids managed to walk to the other end as well.

Basically, that is the end of our holidays this year. Besides Port Dickson and Langkawi Island, we have also visited Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary, Sg Klah Hot Springs, Sunway Lagoon, National Science Centre and Petrosains in KLCC. Wow, it has been a hectic year.

Well, 2008 is coming to an end. I will take this opportunity to wish you a Happy New 2009 Year!
