Short Holiday - Tg Sepat & Bagan Lalang (Day 3)

Day 3
As usual, Elyssa was up before 8am and started chattering away. *Sigh*, no difference to her whether it was a weekend or not. All I wanted to do was to sleep!

Then I discovered another big plus point of travelling with friends......more people to keep her entertained. Yay! This lazy mummy managed to snooze for another hour plus. Bliss! Actually, I was also pleased that she was comfortable enough to just talk and play with our friends without hubby and I being around. :)
(thanks Aunty MS and Eu for bearing with Miss "Zhi Zhar Poh"!)

After the wonderful beauty sleep, we headed off to the Golden Palm Gold Coast Resort again. Doris, the homestay owner kindly offered to bring us in since she's a member of the resort.

Some photos of the super-hard-to-get-into resort :



Master room

Swimming Pool

The resort was actually much nicer than I expected.
But package rate was something like RM8k+ for 7 nights to use within a year and RM 30k+ for 25 years. Nah....... I think my Marriott package is wayyyyyy better! Why be restricted to just ONE location ? And I don't even have the confidence this place will be around for 25 years!

Anyway, after the resort, we made a quick stop at a Fisherman's Pier -

Then to a Longan Farm -

Not in season though. Only a few trees with fruits

Passion fruit and "Hu Low"
(the old fashioned drinking bottles I see in kung fu movies!)

More "Hu Low"
These will be dried then cored to make the old fashioned bottles for decoration purposes

Ok..... not that I've not seen a pineapple plant before. But since already in the farm, then take photo loh...

After the farm, we were all famished and ready for lunch. Polished everything very quickly!

Some dishes not in photo

We headed back to KL in our respective cars after lunch.

I wasn't expecting much at first, but I ended up really enjoying the short holiday. Don't really know how to describe it, but during the 3 days, I just felt so "free" from some of the things that have been troubling me recently.

I think it's a relaxing holiday to unwind and just chill although you didn't go anywhere far. This resort is very nice but the package is very expensive ya. Elyssa is so easy to jaga..good for you. :)

Waaah! RM8K for 7 nites is too much lah. The guard who barred us from entering the hotel gave us a pathetically small piece of paper with the room rates when we asked for a brochure. The cheapest room is RM580++ per night. We can get a waayyy better package with that price, right?
