Summer Holiday - Balik Kampung

Here ... is my story of the recent vacation back to my lovely home country, Malaysia. A one month off was just too short for a summer break... hehehehehe... Masa begitu mencumburui ku.

Every year, the best part is to 'balik kampung' (back to hometown or village). Nothing can't beat the excitement of 'balik kampung'. Terms of balik kampung can be referred to going back to ones' parents house. It doesn't matter if it is in town or village. We just call it balik kampung.

The scenic view of the road leading to my wife's kampung. The greens, cow and the small river or better known here as parit reflect the easy life of the kampung's folks.
The fruits, the chicken and the kids at the back yard of their grandpa's house. The kids really enjoyed playing with the rooster. Somehow it reminded my chilhood days.

Of course the holiday will not complete if you don't bring your kids somewhere called resorts, theme parks or places of interest where people love to go. We were no exception.
This is Tanjung Puteri Golf Resort. A place we used to spending our weekends and evening during my days in PG. Nabilah was seen doing her swimming session with Wahid.

Singapore Zoo

A lot of people said that Singapore has one of the best zoo in this region. I guess they are right. Singapore Zoo is highly recommended for a visit. We took few days to spend in Singapore and of course the zoo was in our list. Unfortunately we didn't manage to visit the Night Safari which is only next to the zoo.

The newly opened Universal Studio located in Sentosa Island was our another destination. There are numbers of attractions suitable for just anybody.

As for me, I loved watching that spectacular live water show at the WaterWorld. It was awesome! Some other attractions like Shrek 4-D Adventure, Revenge of the Mummy, Battlestar Galactica did bring a lot of fun and thrills as well.

Back in Malaysia, unlike previous year where we spent days in Tioman, we decided not to go to any island. Instead we only visited Sunway Lagoon, Putrajaya and Melaka. That's already took us a week.

Sunway Lagoon & Resort, one of many popular water theme park in Malaysia.

Guess what? I realized that one needs at least two full day to explore Putrajaya. Besides its many unique and beautiful buildings, there are so many tamans that worth a visit. Among them are Taman Warisan Pertanian and Taman Botani Putrajaya.

On the way back to JB, we made a quick stop at Air Keroh. No new attraction and it seems to look the same 10, 15 years ago.

Alhamdullillah, praise to Allah, that this year we were able to celebrate and had our 1st week of Ramadhan with our beloved parents before going back to Saudi.
