13 xMy 13th entry goes to everyone who helped me a lot to finish this assignment.
First of all, I would like to thank both my mother and my father because they have sacrificed a lot of money just to take me to those places that I've shared before. Not to forget my sisters who never failed to accompany me to every trip.
Next is to my lecturer, Mr Zahren to give me the opportunity to express my feelings through this blog. He had taught me on how to make a blog, how to use blog and how to be a great blogger.
And also, to my friends who somehow involved in some of my trip.
Thank you everyone.
Little French Town at Bukit Tinggi
Bukit Tinggi was located at Bentong, Pahang. It took around 1hour drive approximately from Kuala Lumpur.
Saunter along the cobblestone walkway and marvel at the unique architecture that replicates the original French splendour in Alsace. All eight blocks are uniquely designed and purpose - built within, but spotting colorful roof tiles, old world decor and finishes on the outside.
Relaxing Mode at Eco Murai RimbaDifferent from the other entries, this entry is still in planning, I myself has not been there yet, but I'm way to excited to be there with my friends this becoming study week. I really hope it will be as we have planned.
It was located at Batang Kali, which is not that far from my university so it makes it just perfect for our study week's gateway.
So here some pictures of Eco Murai Rimba that I found in their official Facebook Account. Just search ' Eco Murai Rimba ' if you want to get to know more about this river paradise.

White House. It's actually a family room.

A Beautiful Private Island (Rawa Island)Being an avid beach lover, our short escapade was none other than to one of the most beautiful island here in the southern region. Being just back from Tioman Island a few months ago, I'm off again to yet another gorgeous piece of paradise here in Johor.
After about 2 hours plus drive from Johor Bahru and 30 minutes of boat ride, we were whisked onto Rawa Island, a relatively small private island full of sunshine, stunning beach and plenty of fun. With their pretty hues of blue, white sandy beach, salty island breeze, lazy coconut trees and generous rays of sun, the islands never fail to emit a vibe that kills all stress monsters in me.
The crystal clear beach
There are only 2 privately own accomodations on Rawa; the Rawa Island Resort and Alang Rawa. Besides, being just a normal weekend makes the island very much less crowded and we could had the beach to ourselves as much as we like. Both Rawa Island and Alang's accomodation are chalet styles, with Rawa offering more chalets with different type of views (sea, hilltop, beachfront).
LegolanddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddAs I promised, here's an entry about Legoland. Legoland Malaysia is one of the attraction to visitors in Johor...
There are over 40 interactive rides, shows and attractions. It is the first Legoland theme park in Asia and sixth in the world upon its establishment. Legoland is not just a theme park, there's a water theme park which cost RM720 million too ! You dont need to worry about the hotels and foods because there're also legoland hotels and only halal-certificated foods served at the Market Restaurant of Legoland Malaysia.

RM170 for an adult and RM130 for a child is worth to spend at Legoland!
Exploring My Own CityI was born and raised in Johor Bahru but now I'm pursuing my studies in Tanjung Malim Perak which is 411km away from where I was born. Last weekend I went back to my hometown and I decided to go for a sightseeing and I'm going to take my readers to explore the city together with me. Let's go !
First of all, Johor Bahru is the state capital of Johore in southern peninsular Malaysia, Johor Bahru is a rapidly growing city.
First place is Jalan Segget or also known as Bazar Karat. It’s the same as Jonker Walk in Malacca. Just a normal street during the day, but a super duper busy road at night. There are numerous number of stalls available, you can get almost everything you want there, from clothes to household furnitures, foods and drinks, accessories and a lot more. It starts from 4p.m. until 3a.m. every day. It’ll be so packed when it comes to Hari Raya or any other festivals. If you're lucky, you may find a street buskers. There’re a lot of cafes around there too. You just have to walk and explore more so that you can find more!
There're a lot more places to explore in Johore that I will share in the next entry. But the next entry is more specifically, it's all about Nusajaya.
The Historical City of MalaccaBeing a backpacker for 1 day and 1 night in Malacca was a great experience! Malacca is the second smallest state in Malaysia. Malacca was one of the greatest trading cities in the world and now it is a city of historical and cultural interest.
One of the scene from The Light and Sound
On the first night, I went for a walk at Bandar Hilir. I'm so lucky because I had the chance to watch The Light and Sound show. Highly educational yet entertaining! The tickets only cost RM10 for adult and RM2 for child. It's a great show for a visitor like me to understand Malacca's culture,people and the history. The show starts at 8.30p.m. .
Next is River Boat Cruise. I cruised down the Malacca River and I was amazed to witness the place where countless generations of traders from all over the world had lived and pile their trade. Not forget, I didn't miss to go to Jonker Walk. Located along Jalan Hang Jebat, it's just an ordinary night market which bring life to the street at night.
The beautiful decoration of Malacca's trishaw.
Malacca gives such a great experience for a first timer backpacker for me to explore the city in just 1 day. Cant wait to come back soon to explore more!
Delicious Malaysian Food
As you know, in my previous post I went to Adventure Cove Water Park in Singapore. So, I took the opportunity to try out delicious Malaysian’s food on the Malaysian Food Street. It’s in the same area with Adventure Cove Water Park.
We had our dinner there. I was amazed with the decoration, it reminds me to the old good time of the food street in Malaysia back to years ago.
You can get a lot of delicious Malaysian Food there. Don't worry about the price because it's not that expensive. The price is as great as how it tastes. For muslims, you just have to be careful because not all of the stalls there sell halal food. Not to forget, this street will be so packed and busy especially during public holiday and school holiday. You may have to queue a little bit long for a food but it's worth to wait.
A Splashed Day Out At Sunway Lagoon
Time really flies when you're having fun. I just can't believe that I'm back to college again, with the whole mundane routine starting all over again after few weeks of semester break.
I spent my last Friday of the Semester break at Sunway Lagoon. The ticket are not that cheap but somehow it's worth it. RM96/person for all park.
Right after we got the tickets hehe
I just love how this duck welcoming us *big hug*
We spent the whole day there. We tried every single ride, from scream park to water park. It was a really great but tiring day. But who cares? We had a LOT of fun!
On the hanging bridge to the Water Park right after we're done with all the rides in Scream Park.
There were only 4 major slides in the Water Park. I really loved the Vuvuzela. It was slow in the beginning but then it turns to a super crazy fast ride. It was fun !
Here's a video of me and siblings had a slide race hehe we rule the slide!
Oh sunburn AGAIN. Thank you for the fun Sunway Lagoon!

Tioman Paradise Beach Island
Tioman Island is a small island, 39km long and 12km wide, located off the east coast of peninsular Malaysia.
Tioman is in Pahang within the Mersing Marine Park, which contains fewer commercial islands such as Sibu Island. The primary gateway Mersing in Johor.
In 1970's, Time magazine selected Tioman as one of the world's most beautiful islands. The densely forested island is still sparsely inhabited. Also it is surrounded by numerous white coral reefs,making it a heaven for scuba divers from all over the world.
RM5 is a conversation fee to enter the island which started in June 2013. Most visitors arrived by ferry from Mersing. The ferry services are fast and comfortable taking approximate 2 hours to the first jetty in Tioman. The charges RM35 for an adult ticket and RM25 for a child ticket. The timetable is variable and depends on the tide.
While waiting for the ferry
We have a stayed in Kampung Air Batang for 3 days and 2 nights. The price range for the challet is not too high here but still in a good condition and comfortable.

On the next day, we go for island hoping by a boat. The price is RM85/person. So here’s a few pictures of us during the island hoping. We had so much fun yet so much sunburned hehehe

Next stop is the White Sand Beach. The water is super clear and...

At night, we went to have a dinner at Sunset Bar near to Nazri’s Place at the end of the village. They served variety of alcohol and non-alcohol drinks, homemade pizzas and some other side dishes such as nuggets and fries.

So that’s the end of our story here in Tioman Island. Until we meet again in the next post. Bye!
