Year by year, revisiting to FGS Dong Zen Temple seems a compulsory. Visiting this place during Chinese New Year, a norm to most people had and the surrounding hasn’t really changed for this year.
Fo Guang Shan (FGS) Dong Zhen Temple
CNY Lantern & Floral Festival 2015
Year of GOAT – More colorful decorations this year made the entire temple colorful. My returning this year was somewhat disappointed due to I had chosen a bad camera (non-DSLR) and the outcome of most photos are deteriorating.
Anyway, FGS Dong Zen remains one of the most visited place during CNY, regardless you agree or not.
Seeking a new place to hike around KL & Selangor has never faded inside me. Till I learn from my hiking guru recommended this hill. A friendly hill for beginner. He decided to bring us there for once after talked about some time.
10 Jan 2015 | Bukit Besi
Neither I have any clue what and where is this hill until I attempted it. Peak should be nothing to fancy about but the CHECKPOINT is!
Checkpoint is the place where the PANAROMA of KL view where PEAK is nothing than a TELECOMMUNICATION base. Many locals knew this place and organized few hike at the night for spectacular KL night view since the trail is absolutely beginner friendly. I chosen to hike in the early morning to catch a SUNRISE!
Never underestimated the word of ‘Bukit’ (meaning of hill). It can be bigger than life of mountain. My trip to Bukit Repin was one of the toughest hike I ever been. Trust or not, the 28km distance (return trip) cost it all.
13 May 2014 | Bukit Repin
It was a month since I had done Bukit Chenuang, yet another tough hike. I am off with another again.
Bukit Repin is situated next to Gunung Nuang and the trail is beautiful. This trail is much easier from the starting point of Klang Gates area, however, there are several difficulties and on many occasions, motorbike wheels erode the track.
The distance to the R&R is almost 14km, so the round trip gave me 28km of hiking pleasure.
I feel I started to repeat trip that I went once and never had enough after that. There’s a chance for another round to complete whatever incomplete mission in the first trip. I always have fulfilling desire when going for second time.
Phuket Trip 2015 | Island Escape @ Phuket
It was organized in a FREE way, to make our trip as free and as easy as it could be. A 5D4N is my favorite duration foreseeing I can make 3 days full trip to anywhere I want. Of course priority gives to those I never went before and unique places to the destination.
With giving a shot to AirAsia during Zero Fares promotion, I managed to buy 2 person return ticket at RM342, meaning RM171 per pax.
Our Day 2 is island hopping day. A must activity in this Phuket Trip, we had an enjoyable day tour to Ratcha (Raya) & Coral Island. It wasn’t in my list until the agent introduced it. This place is so amazing with crystal clear water.
Ratcha & Coral Island Tour | Island Escape @ Phuket
This tour is via speedboat, cost me 1300 baht per person. The van picked us up from hotel around 8.00am and transfer to Chalong pier. Punctuality is important so other guest won’t be late due to first batch was late. I was 2nd batch to fetch over.
Phuket is not as big as city but the road heading to jetty is not that straight forward and lots of traffic along the way. It expected to take an hour to the jetty. Not only us heading there, but a dozen of vehicles fetching guests all around the island’s hotel.
