Family trip is one good way to enhance bonding between family members and neighbors. During the last December school holidays, Nazaruddin (Unit 4.12) and myself (Aziz 2.13) took our families to Penang and Cameron Highlands. I would like to share some of those moments with residents of Sinaran Ukay – may be next time, more residents could join in for similar family trips.
Lunch at the famous Ipoh Nasi Kandar
Dinner at a Batu Ferringhi Food Court
The following day (16/12/2008) we have a great breakfast with Kueteow soup and mee udang at no other than Sifu Omar (ask Asri about this place)
Then another breakfast at Transfer Lane roti canai and special Penang toasted bread with eggs on top
No lunch for today as we had enough to last us the whole day ! Then we headed to Gurney Plaza for some shopping and stop by at Starbucks for a drink
After Gurney Plaza, we took a breather and drove back to our accommodation in Batu Ferringhi but not before we sampled the famous Laksa Penang along the way. That night, we took a drive down south to Batu Maung via the long and winding Balik Pulau road, where we had a very sumptuous dinner.
On Wednesday 17/12/2008, we checked out and proceeded to Cameron Highlands, but not before we had another Nasi Kandar lunch in Ipoh. The drive to CH was via Simpang Pulai. We stopped at Green View for a drink and enjoyed the nice, cool air.
Then we checked in at a private bungalow
That afternoon, we felt like being British and had our English tea complete with scones at Bala’s Chalet
The weather was cold and we forgot to take dinner pictures at Tanah Rata. The food was good though.
The following day (18/12/2008) we had our breakfast at the same place, after which we headed for home. Along the way we stopped at Lakeside to buy some vegetables and souvenirs.
All-in-all it’s a fun trip.
Our Social Convenor may want to look at similar family trips if residents are receptive to the idea. It could be a picnic at Port Dickson, lunch in Bagan Lallang or weekend in Genting.
