Sweet Escapism

Assalamualaikum w.b.t..

Hi peeps.It's been so long since the last time i update this loyal blog of mine. Sorry for not able to update frequently. I don't know whether my follower keep checking this blog or not but if there are some people who are interested, forgive me please..(sorry for making this para as minta pelempang..hee!)

Something that i wanna share with you guys is my vacation. Do you remember my trip to Universal Studio Singapore?It is long time ago and i had a chance to have a girls trip with my favorite girls on early February. Thanks to Ida, Tia and Jeton a.k.a Zati for making this vacation a reality.

It was a 3 days 2 nights holidays. Since K.L is having its Hari Wilayah on 1 February, we started our journey on that date and luckily it's Friday!!We are happy to start our holiday as early as at 8 o'clock in the morning. As usual, i'm late!Woke up late and i have to travel from Bukit Jalil to Sungai Buloh. My friends have to wait for me and i only arrived at Sg Buloh around 9.30 a.m. Oh yes, forgot to mention, me and my friends gather at Tia's house and we leave around 10 a.m. We have a pit stop at Hentian Rawang to buy some foods and beverages. 

Have i tell you where are we going?Opps sorry! We are heading to Teluk Intan, Perak. Ida's hometown. We are going to stay at Lumut and having fun at Teluk Batik. Ida acted as our honored driver and of course we are traveling with her car. Since graduated we haven't had a chance to gather, chit-chatting, gossiping, and laughing like this. Time and financial constraint maybe. Haha! It's good to see people's place and one village stole my attention. It's name is Kampung Coldstream. Nobody would expect that kampung situated in Perak. There are lots of lorry on the road and Ida manage to overtake all of them. Bravo Ida!Hee!

Around 12 p.m we arrived at Ida's house in Teluk Intan. Meeting Opah and Ibu. Thanks for feeding us and preparing foods for our picnic.Sardine and eggs are always the best during picnic.Honestly, i'm craving for that lauk right now.Haha! After a while at Ida's place we move to Teluk Batik, Lumut. We chose Virgo Batik Resort and after performing Zohor prayer, we went to the beach.

After finding the best spot for us to sit, the first thing that we do is makan!!!We are seriously hungry!Haha!Then, after finishing our meal, Ida jump into the water and swim like a mermaid. She really enjoys the beach and can happily playing by herself. While Tia and Jeton are having a conversation under a tree. Me? Waiting for the waves to hit me and restraining myself from going any further into the water. 

We had so much fun writing our names on the sand for countless times, taking pictures and laughing at guys from navy when they are having karaoke session. Did i mention some of them are playing ball in the water?Huhu!They are freaking hot. Wakakaka!Do i have to mention again that they are navies?Hee! Later, we continued our swimming session in the hotel's swimming pool while enjoying some dried squid that we bought on our way back to hotel from the beach. Like a tourist.Huhu!

Before Maghrib, we went to Marina Bay to see sunset but unfortunately, we didn't manage to do that. Instead, we took lots of pictures and after performing Maghrib prayer we hunt for foods. Again, we are hungry! We chose to eat at Medan Ikan Bakar Teluk Muruh but i have to say that we are not satisfied with the food. Later on, we make our move to Aeon Manjung, which is so interesting with lots of shop lots and Jeton bought two pairs of shoes for herself and her mother. We are actually expecting to watch a movie there but unluckily the cinema will only be opened soon =(.

The next day, our destination is Lumut. We aimed to buy some dried seafood to be taken home. Me and Tia bought t shirts and of course all 4 of us bought dried seafood and ate some of it in the car.Huhu!Tell me who didn't love to eat while chit chatting in the car? We stop for Zohor prayer at Desa Manjung Raya a.k.a Venice of Perak. Where is it? Go and Google it now!

Then we start looking for place to do our favorite activity. Unfortunately, we found no better place than a place where always do our activity. So, we decided to hold it to another time. Quite sad but it's okay. After that, straight away headed to Menara Condong Teluk Intan. Yes menara condong. Just like Pisa in Italy. That evening, we went back to Ida's house and stay there for a night.

The next morning, after having breakfast, we headed back to K.L. Before that, we are actually looking after to try Mee Rebus Mustan Ghani, which is very popular in Teluk Intan but the shop is not yet open. So, Ida decided that we didn't complete our visit to Teluk Intan yet and have to come again.Of course we are!On the way back to K.L, we stop at Sungkai to have laksa at one of Ida's favorite place. The laksa is delicious and i love its layer tea. 

Around 2 p.m, we arrived at Aeon Rawang and went for movies. We chose Hansel & Gretel since we didn't manage to watch it at Manjung.After the movies, we went to have some food and then we went home. 

From the bottom of my heart, i hope that this vacation would never end.Girls, i'm going to remember this vacation of ours forever.May Allah bless our friendship forever.
