Pulai Desaru Beach Resort & Spa

Remember I posted in early July about wanting to go for a beach vacation? My friends heard me so we planned for a weekend retreat down south. They planned to drive down together to Johor early Friday morning but thinking about being in the car for 4-5 hours straight scares the heck out of me. We decided to drive back to Malacca on Thursday night instead and put a night at my mom’s place before […]

Howdy peeps! How you been doing? We’re finally back after a 3 day hiatus. We went down south to Pulai Desaru for some much needed back to nature retreat away from the hustle and bustle of city life. I did not bring my laptop along with me as I have this one rule of NOT bringing work along on our vacation. But guess what? I max my iPhone usage during the entire trip that I […]

The last time we stepped foot in Langkawi was back in 2002. Wow, that was TEN years ago! @_@ There.. ten years ago in Langkawi, Darling and I looked like that ^.^ How did we let a decade passed by without returning to Langkawi?

Petronas gas processing plant : City of Lights

During our recent Terengganu trip, we were taken to the City of Lights – the Petronas gas processing plant in Kerteh. I’ve never seen something this beautiful in my life. Too bad the bus are not allowed to stop for us to take pictures. We are not even allowed to take pictures of the plant actually. It was after midnight after our Kelip-Kelip trip and some of us are already asleep in the bus. I […]

Awana Kijal, Golf, Beach and Spa Resort

The last we stepped foot in Terengganu was last year when we flew to Kuala Terengganu to go to Pulau Redang. We did not do much there then as we spent most of our time in Redang.

Satar – Terengganu’s Local Delicacy

During our stay in Awana Kijal Golf, Beach and Spa Resort, the staffs there kept on raving about a certain fish snack called satar. They kept asking us if we’ve tried it. Honestly speaking, I’ve never heard of such a snack. When I knew I am going to Terengganu, the first thing that came to mind is keropok lekor and nasi dagang but definitely not satar as I am not even aware of its existence. […]

Pusat Anyaman Mengkuang, Kg Cherating, Kuantan

Kedai Kopi Hai Peng, Kemaman, Terengganu

From the first day we stepped foot in Terengganu, everybody was telling us that we must drop by Hai Peng Kopitiam to try their famous coffee. We wanted to drop by on the second day but our schedule was so tight that we could not make it. We did pass by the place and saw such huge crowd there. It must be really good then, that place.. Finally on our third day here we decided […]

Sungai Yak Yah Firefly Tour

When we were told that we’ll be going to Awana Kijal, Golf, Beach & Spa Resort, Terengganu for a weekend getaway with a bunch of other awesome Nuffnangers courtesy of Genting, never did it cross my mind that firefly watching will be one of the activities planned for us. How shallow was I for not knowing that we have one of the most magnificent firefly sanctuary right here in Sungai Yak Yah, Kuala Terengganu. We […]

Petrosains KLCC

Genting Highland Outdoor Theme Park

It’s Ethan’s birthday weekend so we decided to go up to Genting! We are lucky to be living just an hour away from Genting. Anytime we feel like it, we can just take the car and drive up. Unlike our previous trip where we took the cable car just to let the kids experience the ride, this time we drove straight up to Genting. It was that cold when we arrived shortly before noon.

Flying Firefly to Kuala Terengganu

When Darling first decided to go to Redang Island for our holiday, he contemplated flying either AirAsia, Berjaya or Firefly. Taking a bus to Kuala Terengganu is totally out of the question-lah for yours truly here gets travel sickness like nobody’s business. We wanted to take Berjaya so that we can skip the bus part and straight board the boat to Redang. But Berjaya was extremely expensive for our choice of dates. It was almost […]

Scuba Diving in Redang

It was Day 2 in Redang. The weather was fine and the sea was calm. Darling decided to try scuba diving.. So we took a slow walk along the bridge leading to the diving site. The diving rates. Since Darling is just ‘discovering scuba’ and will be diving with no license whatsoever, he was charged RM160 for equipment and coaching. I wanted to try too but the gas tank is very heavy hence I chickened-out […]
