Yeah, I am kind of busy for the past few months due to the audit peak season, where most of my company's clients have a Dec 2009 or 31 March year end.

So might not be able to update my blog as frequent as I used to be.

When I am a bit free then I will update on some of the things that I wanted to share on this blog.

Sunset view of Kuala Kedah

I just love the view of the beach, especially during the sunset.

This photos were taken in Kuala Kedah. Fantastic view. Don't think I can find this kind of view in KL.

Bukit Tinggi

I was in Bukit Tinggi during the long Christmas weekend.

It was a last minute decision to go to Bukit Tinggi as I didn't plan earlier, all the hotels around Malaysia were fully booked, so Bukit Tinggi is the only choice of vacation where I can drive back and forth on the same day.

I have totally no idea when was the last time I went to Bukit Tinggi, maybe I was too young at that time to remember, or I never been to there at all.

I drove up to Bukit Tinggi very early in the morning to avoid the crowd.

When I arrived at the first attraction of Bukit Tinggi, which is the Rabbit Park, I thought that I will be welcomed by the cool breeze of the highland, but I was wrong.

Bukit Tinggi was not as cool as I thought, maybe Bukit Tinggi highland is not high enough like Genting Highland and Cameron Highland, or maybe I drive too much until I created a massive global warming effect to the world.

The main attractions of Bukit Tinggi is the French-themed village called Colmar Tropicale and Japanese Tea Garden.

This under exposed photo makes Colmar Tropicale looked like a spooky castle.

The Colmar Tropicale is basically a hotel managed by Berjaya Corporation, one of the largest corporation in Malaysia.

If you are not staying in the hotel, then you have to pay RM10 ticket fee to visit Colmar Tropicale and Japanese Tea Garden.

Colmar Tropicale is a very special place, some may called it "Rojak" as you can feel like being in France and enjoy the tropical hot weather of Malaysia.

When you enter Colmar Tropicale, you can see lots of hotel rooms, restaurants, and souvenir shops. So I think the French-themed village is exactly like a hotel where you have rooms, restaurants and souvenir shops, just that it is prettier and more special with the French-themed idea.

But I still love the view of this place.

More pictures below:

Amy was very excited to see her employer's name in Colmar Tropicale.

The wishing well

The real swans...

The fake ducks, reminded me of the cute Digi commercials.

After getting bored of the French-themed hotel, I drove uphill to go to the Japanese Tea Garden.

The way up: very very steep slope, don't think my Proton can cope with it. Luckily, parking was available.

This Japanese Tea Garden was the world's first Japanese Tea House in the tropical forest, and I am the world's first person named Leong Yi Yang from Perlis to visit this Japanese Tea Garden. Don't play play.

The main attraction of this Japanese Tea Garden is that you can rent the traditional Japanese Kimono to wear on and take pictures with the Japanese styled little hut behind you. So that you can cheat your friends that you've been to Japan.

These are the fattest ever Koi fish I've ever seen ion my whole life.

Just spend a little money and you can make your friends to believe that you were in Japan, that's good consumer advice during this financial crisis.

There is also a Botanical Garden.

There is a viewing platform inside the Botanical Garden which makes you climb over the hills to reach the viewing platform where you'll be greeted with this view:

Not exactly a very good scenery, but it'll make you lose 10kg.

The expensive bungalows... One day Yi Yang... One day...

Bukit Tinggi is a very good place if you want to have a relaxing short trip away from the city without spending too much or drive too long on the highway. Just don't get yourself carried away by buying those over-priced souvenirs.
