Resort Review: Swiss Garden Beach Resort Kuantan

We recently stayed at the Swiss Garden Beach Resort Kuantan and had a wonderful experience. The resort is located right on the beach, which provides stunning views of the South China Sea. The staff were friendly and accommodating throughout my stay, and the facilities were well-maintained and clean.

One of the highlights of our stay was the spacious and comfortable room. The room was equipped with all the amenities we needed, including a flat-screen TV and kettle. The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was clean and spacious.

The resort also had a wide range of facilities, including a swimming pool, fitness center, and spa. We particularly enjoyed the pool, which was clean and well-maintained. The fitness center had a good range of equipment, and the spa was a great place to relax and unwind after a busy day.

The dining options at the resort were also impressive. There were several restaurants and bars to choose from, each offering a different type of cuisine. The breakfast buffet was particularly good, with a wide range of options to suit all tastes.

Overall, we would highly recommend the Swiss Garden Beach Resort Kuantan for anyone looking for a relaxing and enjoyable stay in Kuantan. The location, facilities, and service were all top-notch, and we would definitely stay here again in the future!

Bye bye Kuantan!

Attraction Review: The Habitat Penang Hill

The Habitat Penang Hill is a must-visit destination for families with young children and seniors looking for a fun and educational experience. Nestled in the heart of the Penang Hill forest, this eco-tourism attraction offers an immersive and interactive adventure that is both exciting and educational.

Shafa’s mom & Yusof’s happy, welcome look 😁

As a family with a toddler and a senior citizen, we were delighted with the range of activities that The Habitat had to offer. The highlight of our trip was the Nature Trail, which is a guided walk through the forest. Our toddler was fascinated by the sights and sounds of the forest, while our senior family member was impressed with the knowledgeable guide who shared interesting facts about the flora and fauna.

Another highlight of The Habitat is the Canopy Walk, which is a suspended bridge that spans across the treetops. Although it can be a little nerve-wracking for those with a fear of heights, the walk is a thrilling experience that provides a unique perspective on the forest.

Our toddler always leads the way!
Shafa’s mom seems happy!
It’s a long (and high) walk!

Next was the Curtis Crest Treetop Walk. The Treetop Walk is a 13m HIGHEST PUBLIC viewing platform located on the plateau just above the Mid-Point Rest Area and Museum. Designed to handle up to 120 people at a time, it offers mesmerizing 360-degree views of Penang, including George Town, and serves as the highest public viewing point on the island. On a clear day the islands of Langkawi can be seen in the distance.

The guide was kind enough to take our family photo 🥰

Overall, we highly recommend The Habitat Penang Hill to families with young children and seniors. The attraction is well-maintained, and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The range of activities on offer ensures that there is something for everyone, and the educational aspect of the experience makes it a worthwhile visit. If you’re planning a family trip to Penang, The Habitat is a must-visit destination.

Note: The visit was before the COVID-19 virus takes in. As parents of a toddler who are also living with an elderly, we do advise you to adhere to the government rules and guidelines by the Health Ministry. As a travel advocate, we definitely will help you to dream and plan for your next travel by feeding you with our travel write ups. Stay safe and be positive!

Tune Tour Episode 1: Tune Hotel KLIA2

We’re so excited to share with you the first of many Tune Tours that Yusof and Shafa’s family is going to explore and experience. Read more to learn about *drum roll* the Tune Hotel KLIA2!

As you know, KLIA2 is Malaysia’s airport for low-cost airlines and what a convenience to check-in to also check in in a low-priced hotel just beside the airport!The lobby area is typical with all the waiting area chairs that will make you comfortable while waiting, a bar, a common area and a convenience store in one place.The reception area, however, is divided. There is a specific one if you’re travelling in groups and individual. That made our checking-in and checking-out experience a bliss – it was so easy.We availed two standard twin rooms – one for our family and the other one is for Shafa’s Mom (Yusof’s family couldn’t join us this time because of another event).The cute decorations in our room is the first thing we noticed. It made us wanted to decorate our room in our house too! Our toddler, who only speaks when he’s in the mood, was also super excited and kept talking about the pictures in our room.

The safe box was neatly located at the bottom of the side table, in the middle of our twin beds. The downside: our toddler played with it every single minute.

The bathroom in our room was super small but also super neat! There was no cupboard, but there’s a place to hang your clothes.*Updated information (thank you Mr. Syahrol Ikhwan Mohd Fadzil from Tune Hotel):*All the hotel rooms are air-conditioned with a ceiling fan (Guests are able to use both during stay, no extra charge). Only few rooms are without ceiling fan (Premium Room and Garden Room).The view of our room was not the airport side but we managed to see some flying planes. Our little one seems happy with the room and view, so no worries!

As mentioned, KLIA2 is a few walks away to the hotel. You just actually have to cross a road. We tried that ourselves – it was really near and walking distance, but it was a lengthy walk for senior citizens like my 69-year old mother. I was also having a hard time babywearing my toddler with all the walking! But surely, as any other airports, wheelchairs will be available if we need one.

Being near the airport, this means that Tune Hotel KLIA2 is also near to pharmacy stores, retails stores, ATMs and currency exchange available in the airport. Also, if you’re craving for other food aside from the ones in the hotel, restaurants like Burger King and the likes are also within reach.

In the morning, we had our breakfast at Makan – the hotel’s cafe. The food. Was. Great! You have the option to eat inside the cafe or outside.In the morning, we had our breakfast at Makan – the hotel’s cafe. The food. Was. Great! You have the option to eat inside the cafe or outside. The breakfast buffet opens at 4am until 10am. In addition to a nice nature view, it was so convenient if you’re having an early flight in the morning, right? Special thanks to one of the staff – he gave us some tips about Makan & Tune Hotel KLIA2. Check out below live video, recorded on Facebook!

What are your considerations when looking for a hotel? Budget? Convenience? Location? Let’s talk in the comments section.

Ayam Gebuk Lunch Set @ CS Cafe, Cinta Sayang Resort – A Hot Level Tolerable By Everyone

We got a chance to visit Cinta Sayang Resort and fortunately avail their Ayam Gebuk Lunch Set from the CS Cafe!(This is really a sweet deal) But before we go to the food details, let me just give you a quick tour of this beautiful place.

The CS Café in Cinta Sayang Resort has a very beautiful view. Sitting from our table, we were given a chance to see the overlooking view of the golf course.

The inside of the café has a very calm and relaxing feel but not limited to that! They also have cute decorations that will definitely help brighten up the place especially when you are with the family.

Speaking of family, you all know that I have a toddler and sometimes bring one in cafes are a struggle. But here, they made sure that the place is very family and kid friendly. There were many types of seating available but they have one in particular that we love because it is perfect for active toddlers as well as those sleepy.

Now for the food! Ayam Gebuk is a dish that is made with chicken and curry leaves. It is the sauce of the chicken that makes it special. Their sauce is just perfect for me as it is hot but just the right level for Malaysians.

This meal set comes with an ice lemon tea that is just perfect with the meal too! It is very refreshing.

Of course we will not let this lunch pass without dessert! And we found out that they also have a promotion for the cakes, although the promotion was only valid from 5pm – 9pm.

So we went in and added a cheesecake and a tiramisu cake with this lunch set.

Our son loved their cheesecake! This is definitely a meal we look forward to having again next time.

Long Distance Inter-Country Bus Trip In Europe

We have been browsing what was the best mode of transportation to travel from The Hague to Lille (note: this is inter-country between Netherlands and France). After a thorough research, we have decided to travel by bus. Specifically, we chose OuiBus!

You see, when travelling with a small toddler, the trip needs to be in a budget and convenient. Any bus trip sounds perfect! And it would be easy peasy to research & book. Or so we thought.

We almost booked Flixbus, but then we found out that toddlers need to be safely strapped in a car seat. And it’s not provided by Flixbus. Plus, travelling 13 hours flight with a transit in between? Definitely inconvenient to drag a car seat along (though we did some research on how to bring car seat along throughout long distance flight and extensive trip, we just can’t bear with it).

Renting a car seat alone was also a difficult option, at least if we search it online. And we’re definitely not backtracking to return the car seat!

And so we thought, to make life easier, why not go for a train ride? And so we did our research again. The price was way above our budget. We got stuck.

Then we stumbled upon OuiBus. It did not require our toddler to be strapped in a car seat! Yay! The price was also reasonable. Double yay! Only problem: the price kept rising every time we accessed the website. It’s like seeing stock exchange, changing by the minute!

After persevering doing research, we stumbled upon a website that also offers Ouibus, and price was fixed! So we booked our The Hague – Lille trip with OuiBus via a website called BusBud. Highly recommended!

Below is some of the sceneries from the bus trip. Not much, as we were busy with our toddler.

And below is the station where the bus halted. We only had time to take pictures when we were queuing for restroom!

That’s all the sharing we have for our long distance inter-country bus trip in Europe. Hope it helps!

How To Have A Remarkable Keukenhof Gardens Visit

Visit to the Netherlands is incomplete without Keukenhof Gardens. It is the most popular place among tourists, and you really have to plan ahead if you want to visit this place. Below are the tips that would help your visit.

1. Consider strollers for children & wheelchair for senior citizens

Keukenhof, also known as the Garden of Europe, is one of the world’s largest flower gardens. It is so large, it provides you with map for you to plan your visit. Since we have a senior citizen without wheelchair (it’s fully booked!), we need to cut our journey short. It’s still beautiful, though!

2. Book your ticket & pay your parking online

We’re serious when we said it’s popular among tourists. Thank God we bought everything online! The only downside was that we travelled by car, and the que was SUPER LONG during exit. It was about 2 hours getting out of the car park!!!

Alternatively, you may consider getting to Keukenhof by bus. It is accessible by bus from train stations of Haarlem, Leiden & Schiphol.

3. Plan your trip between mid-March to mid-May

Keukenhof is open annually between these period. We did not do our research well back in 2015, where we paid Netherlands a visit during September. Lesson learnt, we planned our trip on April for the year 2018!

Better still, plan your visit there during the Flower Parade (which we missed). Surely a whole lot fun!

4. Expect variety of gardens, not long field of tulips

The Keukenhof features a variety of different gardens and garden styles. The map provided will show you exactly the location of each garden, so plan your walking tour beforehand!

However, it doesn’t contain the long fields of tulips many visitors expect. We know a lot of tourists expected this, because we were one of them. Ha ha!

There are tulips fields outside the Garden (mostly privately owned). There are even some that can be seen from the Garden, though the view is quite far. These fields may have restricted access and are not included as part of the Keukenhof ticket.

5. Best place to picnic!

Keukenhof Gardens has a lot of stalls, but just imagine the sea of people swarming the area! Plus, it is quite limited choices for us Muslims, so we decided to picnic. There are a lot of free space where we can sit around with our family and enjoy our food!

Enjoy your Keukenhof visit!

Giethoorn With Loved Ones!

Planning a family trip in Netherlands? Head over to Giethoorn! It’s a small scenic village in Netherlands with plenty of activities for the whole family. Our age groups ranges from 1-year-old to 69-year-old, so it is indeed great for everyone!

However, if you do plan to enjoy all the beautiful sceneries, we would highly suggest you to bring strollers for the the little ones, and wheelchair for the senior citizens who are easily tired / legs problem. It’s because the scenic walking route is quite far for them.

While you’re there, rent a boat trip for the whole family to enjoy! Our boat were quite big to fit everyone, and Kak Fay was really brave to be the captain. Well done!

Just remember these boats don’t have breaks, especially the big ones are hard to stop. So just ignore those people who stares at your big boat that happens to bump everywhere, and enjoy the fun!

Top 5 Things To Do In Brussels & Bruges

Planning for a short trip to Brussels and Bruges? Here are what we would recommend for a 2 days 1 night trip!

1. Frederick Blondeel

We know, many Malaysians would’ve visited Godiva and the likes, but Frederick Blondeel is said to serve one of the best hot chocolates in town!

When we were there, we saw the long queue for the ice cream, so we decided to try the ice cream instead. They were awesome!

Aydeen, however, did not know how to “taste” the ice cream, so he decided to eat the whole ice cream and cried (or should we say scream) when it’s finished. Oh well.

2. La Grande Place

This is a must-visit place in Brussels! La Grande Place is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Here, you may find the Town Hall and many souvenir & collectible shops, including Hard Rock cafe & Starbucks (yes, we are Starbucks collectors).

3. Minnewater

Sadly, this is the place that we were not able to visit, due to time constraint. But then again, there are loads of canals in Bruges (including our AirBnB stay) , so we’re not missing much 🙂

What makes Minnewater special is the story behind it. Minnewater is also known as the Lake of Love. The nickname comes from a story of a girl name Minna who died trying to escape from an arranged marriage into the arms of her lover Stromberg. Local legend says that lovers who cross the lake’s bridge will experience eternal love.

We were planning to try our luck on eternal love there. He he. Just kidding. Eternal love is gained by your deeds & efforts, not by visiting places, eh? 🙂

4. The Markt Square

This is the place to be in Bruges! The Markt Square is full of history. The most striking building is without any doubt, the Belfry. If you would like to know about the history of Bruges, you may also visit the Historium!

5. Try the famous Belgian Fries and Mussels!

Belgium is famous for its Belgian fries (they even have a museum for it) and mussels. While you’re there, why not head over to any restaurant or cafes, and try these out? You will definitely love them! 🙂

Hope these recommendations will ease your planning. Have fun on your short Brussels and Bruges trip!
