New year holiday at Bukit Tinggi Resort – Day 1
After so many controversial incidents that leads this Jimmy Woo organized event nearly to cancellation – with the price per person not being right, with 4 of the Penang blogger friends didn’t want to come (but come at last minute), with another group is organizing a trip to Tanjung Malim, finally, our trip to Bukit Tingi Resort has come to reality. There are 21 of us in this trip.
Me and my usual group departed from Brisdale hotel, stopping at Bentong Toll to meet up another group, and finally stop at Genting Sempah R&R for final rendevous, before parting to Bukit Tinggi. Took this exit 805 from the highway.
After a 11.5km trip of climbing the hill, we here at last, at Bukit Tinggi Golf & Country Club for checking in.
Here’s the map of the whole resort
(picture placeholder, will upload map once scanned)
We will be staying at Meranti Park. Wow. The scenery here is marvelous, and I’m very tempted to do my usual panorama photos taking. Here’s the very first one, the panorama photo of Meranti Park, where will be staying for this 2 days 1 night trip.
Once we’ve settled down, it’s time to explore this place. Huh. There again a bit heated discussion about the tickets and how much we have to pay (aiyaa Mr. Organizer. Why so complex one your calculation). Anyhow, there’s no use to keep arguing. Just bought the ticket and go in.
Our first visit is to Colmar Tropicale. Just click the link to read more about this place. But this place is very beautiful. It’s like you are not at Malaysia.
As soon as you step in, you will be greated by this Le Chevalier castle look building, with beautiful fountain at the front.
Well, we are not there yet into Colmar Tropicale. You have to pass this massive and gorgeous bridge and enterence to get in.
Once in, oh, where am I now? France? No. You are inside Colmar Tropicale. Here’s my second panorama photo for today – the view inside Colmar Tropicale.
There’s a tower at the end of this place where you can go up, and do sightseeing. So, went up, and took my third panorama photo of the side view of Colmar Tropicale overlooking the mountains.
Why not take the forth panorama photo of the view of Colmar Tropicale from top. Immediately, you have a thinking of you are actually having a vacation at France.
Tired of those walking, it’s time to fill out my stomach. Was thinking of having the chicken at the shop nearby, but it’s packed with people and no free seats available. So decided to go to the bread shop nearby.
So here is my RM31 breads and drinks. Doh!!! It’s really expensive. The regret suddenly overwhelming me why I’m not having the chicken instead.
Thinking French all day, when it comes to eating, it has to be Malaysia thinking again. A treatment to “nasi ayam” at the food stall at staff quarters really satisfy my appetite after that. Hehehe. Guess Malay can’t go a day without eating rice.
Back to apartment, take a good shower, and then the monopoly session, and after that what else, sleep…..
