Yup, Clearwater Sanctuary AGAIN. It's actually our 3rd time staying there so far - 1st time when Elyssa was about 6 months old and 2nd time when she was 11 months old. I just luurve the place! So peaceful and calming. Really a "sanctuary" for me, to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Just look at the photos -

Such a beautiful place! One of my favourite spots is the infinity swimming pool which overlooks the lake. We swam there on the evening we arrived and also the following morning before we checked out.
We didn't just stay in the resort this time. For dinner, we drove out to Ipoh town. After all, can't be so near Ipoh without eating a plate (ok, we actually had TWO plates) of fat, crunchy bean sprouts !! ;) Had that plus plenty of "liu" (fish balls, taufu stuffed with fish paste, fried wonton etc) and tau fu far at our favourite shop in Pasir Pinji. Yummy! Definitely over-ate there!
On the way back to Batu Gajah, we saw an old-fashioned fun fair. He he.... plenty of loud music and bright gaudy lights, with a carnival-like atmosphere. Really nice! Don't think we can get this sort of fun fair in KL!
We didn't go for any of the rides though, as I knew Elyssa was tired. But I regretted it later when Elyssa kept saying she liked the fun fair. Would have given her a nice experience if she actually went for one of the rides. Ah well, next time then.
That's it for our 4D,3N holiday in Penang/Ipoh. Felt like it went by with a blink of an eye. I want to go for another holiday !!!
