Town Tour

Passage to Bangkok


A stumble and unplanned trip has taken us into another height. In literal sense, we have landed in an extravaganza city, full of captivating by its spell. That’s how our passage has sailed into Bangkok city.

A Passage to BANGKOK @ Thailand

A 5D4N trip has brought us together in the world of shopping spree. Planned roughly 3 months back (May 2011), the budget control was not effective enough. Estimation of total expenses (inclusive of airfare + accommodation) is close to RM 1,400 in which half of it spent on shopping itself.

A strong bonding among us was formed and enhanced. Our fun and laughter doesn’t end easily. Poking fun on each other was a norm. In fact, something that we would like to preserve as a true friendship and it was accomplished without much hurdle but complicated way.


Treasure Hunt @ Pulai Spring Resort


HAVING a chance again to participate Treasure Hunt event is always my favorite. Pulai Spring Resort is just a fascinating destination that I always wanted to go, has been fulfilled with an outdoor games event organized by the bank.

AmXplore Hunt 2011

KL – Pulai Springs, Johor

23rd April 2011

My fourth hunting after 2 years back, uphold my memories of luxuries stay with the team hunter and great games excitement. My team is consisting of me (driver), Sashi (navigator), Sham and Nurul (passengers). All of us built up a unique team to work with common spirit, 1Malaysia.

Although all of them (except me) were first timer, most of them contribute greatly to the varieties of creativity in guessing answers in the process. My role was simply a driver, following the tulips on the paper and even though, getting a very important role to ensure I’ve reached the correct answer spot!


Kellie’s Castle – A Century Old Mansion


Kellie’s Castle is located near Batu Gajah and about 20 minutes drive from Ipoh. A century old unfinished, ruined mansion was built by a Scottish planter called William Kellie Smith. According to differing accounts, it was either a gift for his wife or a home for his son.

Let’s have a short history about this building. The construction began in 1915 and came to an abrupt half with Kellie’s sudden death in 1926. Perak State Government has restored this magnificent structure from the encroaching foliage.

Besides being haunted, the castle is believed to have hidden rooms and secret underground tunnels towards the rubber plantation. The road that leads to Kellie’s Castle follows the contours of the land in a dizzying, maze-like fashion, adding to the mystery and romance of the place.

I’ve been waiting for so long to visit Kellie’s Castle due to its strong historical value. My recent visit to Perak for water rafting has given me a chance to stop by.

Car park is FREE. An entrance fee is RM4 for adult.


Dinos Alive 2010 @ National Science Centre


AMONG all outing that I’ve been to, this one was a bit different. It’s inside the venue. Alright, the recent exhibition held in National Science Centre has brought back many people old memories. Being a science stream student, this centre was my favorite place in the past.

Cactus Garden @ Taman Pertanian Malaysia


My previous visits with Bukit Cahaya Seri Alam (a.k.a Taman Pertanian Malaysia) were about SkyTrek and cycling activities. In fact, many place yet to be discovered with only half day here.

18 Dec 2010 | Cactus Garden @ Bukit Cahaya

Normally, you guys will associate this place with cycling but other than cycling, there are much more hardcore activities going on here such as paintball, skytrek and etc.

If you’re too lazy to walk along the way, just rent a bicycle for RM5 for first hour, subsequent RM1 per hour. Would you rather move on the wheel?

I’ve been invited for this for fun cycling. But I won’t be here for just cycling because I simply love to explore. Explore new place is a BIG must. I recalled a place where the cactus plant resides. Yea, it’s CACTUS GARDEN.

To go here, just follow the signboard available there, it’s same route with SkyTrek direction and further until the end.
