It took me 5 long months to plan this trip to Kapas Island in Terengganu, Malaysia. Yes, I may sound dramatic with the lengthy period & all, but initially this trip was part of my “master” plan, also known as “The Ultimate Trip” back to Terengganu, the state by the east coast where I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree in Software Engineering, 2 years back. And that’s not the best part.
Kapas Island Resort @ Kapas Island (Pulau Kapas)
The best part is….I went for this whole “Ultimate Trip” alone. And I really, really enjoyed the solitude. Long winded stories & deviations aside, back to the topic.
I drove all the way from my home at PJ to Marang in Terengganu, where the jetty to Kapas Island is. Marang is a small town with not many inhabitants living in it.
Eco-Challenge is best known as energy depletion activity with competent mindset. It’s a team event that requires fitness within the team and a high degree of understanding and commitment.
This year event is not easier but more interesting. It tested your endurance and ability to survive through the unexpected. Thanks to my previous experience of Eco-Challenge IX last year.

Desaru Fruit Farm is a farm with 100 tropical fruit species. It’s located at Johor. If you follow from PLUS highway, take the Kulai exit and follow the signboard to Kota Tinggi.
On the half way to Kota Tinggi, you’ll see Desaru signboard. Just follow the signboard and you’ll able to reach there in about 40 mins using trunk road.

This is an officially a family trip. I rarely had family trip nowadays as most of the places that I went to are very challenging. Only this kind of trip is suitable for them. By paying only RM145 per person (pre-booked in MATTA Fair 2 years ago), I finally can make this trip comes true.
Desaru Fruit Farm might be look strange to you because I grew up with Desaru associated with beach. Yea, we did our beach visit as well.
Genting Highlands is not an anonymous name for Malaysian. It has been kept us entertain since our kids age. Also a good vacation place in Malaysia, no matter where you come from.
It’s a worth place to visit, no matter stay overnight or not, you’ll never find it boring. If I could have one week stay here, I probably had my good time here. Nevertheless, I planned one day trip with Lily in conjunction of our first year.
Broga Hill – an amazing beauty hill landscape with full sunrise scenery view when you’re on top of the hill. In this recent days, Broga Hill is getting very famous as the destination spot for novice hikers and avid nature photographers.
