after much fun in Gua Tempurung, we made our way up north. this time, the journey took us to eliea's grands' place in batu 6, changkat jering. we made a pitstop in sungai perak R&R because our sugar level was almost empty.
as soon as we reached the kampung, i was like a bag of worms, all jittery and excited to be in a new place. we met her grands and her cousins. they are lovely people. i am still amazed by the house. i mean, they are only 2 old people but the keep of the house is so good, i can't seem to stop smiling about it.
then we took a tour around the house. not knowing of what was to be seen. OMG!! there literally was like a mini bird park there. and the birds looked really healthy (except for wahab). opah was feeding the birds with her own secret mix. no wonder those animals look better than the ones in the zoo. i especially like the male peacock. that is so effing gorgeous!
the next day, we planned to go to bukit maxwell. no hiking because we were short of time, therefore taking the trooper up is the only option. we took our time to leave the kampung in the morning as we thought that not many people would actually go to maxwell. little did we know that that is a famous tourist spot. the tickets were sold out!! rihanna, eat your heart out girl! bukit maxwell sells like hot cakes!. so instead of being sad, we spent the time in maxwell, making the uncle who sells fruit a little richer. spent on him and off we went. continuing our journey to penang.
before that, we did stop at the famous Taiping Lake Garden. the trees there are amazing! i have never seen that before!. they grow, crossing over the stretch of road and they lean towards the lake. i mean, not one or 2 trees, but the whole stretch! God is so great!
penang bound: time was limited. the girls had their dose of nasi kandar and shopping in chowrasta market (which we only found after about 5 times asking where the hell it is!!).
finally, to kedah, where they left me to start my new year.
this was so fun, i can't wait for the next crazy trip that we haven't plan. so girls, where next??
