It’s been a long time since I took a break from my work for leisure and recreational activities. My colleagues in London always advise me to vacation at Pangkor Island in Perak, Malaysia. It was quite weird in the beginning as I never heard of Pangkor or Perak. Though, I knew about Malaysia but never thought about visiting the country for vacation.

For last several years, I generally vacation in Europe mainly in Italy and France. Moreover, it is often quite expensive to stay in some of the best hotels over there. The restaurants and bars charges hefty taxes on drinks and meals. So, for the first time in my life, I decided to travel South East Asia. It was quite incredulous as I didn’t share my plans with my colleagues until I was certain about myself.

crabI checked online about Pangkor Island in Perak. The charges for food and travel expenses were quite modest as compared to vacationing in Europe. At the end of the week, I made up my mind and declared my travel plans to my colleagues. They were ecstatic to hear about my audacious plans to travel all alone in Malaysia. I felt quite relief with their generous support as it boosted my morale and confidence.

Upon returning home from work, I booked my plane tickets online. I was quite amazed as there were numerous planes connecting Europe with hundreds of destinations in Malaysia. My air ticket was booked for two way travel as it saved money and helped me to plan my trip way ahead of time.

airportFortunately, my colleagues came by to drop me off at the airport. The airport was crowded as usual. My checked in luggage was quite bulky. I reached Kuala Lumpur on time as the plane was ahead of its schedule. Moreover, I was quite amazed to see such a beautiful city as there were hundreds of tourists in the airport. Most of them came from European countries. I spoke with few of them and it was quite a relief to see my own countrymen in foreign land.

After waiting at the airport for few hours, I took another connecting flight to Pangkor Airport from Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport through Berjaya Air. The plane was quite neat and clean and the crew was friendly. The passengers inside the aircraft were mostly vacationers. My co passenger was a Norwegian. We spoke about politics, sports & eventually about Pangkor Island. He advised me to visit the beaches in Coral Bay, Pasir Bogak, Teluk Nipah etc. Moreover, he also recommended me to rent a motorbike to tour around the island. I felt quite happy upon hearing such incredible stories about Pangkor Island from my Norwegian friend. I asked him to join me at Pangkor Island and he gladly accepted my invitation.

Pangkor Island really mesmerized me. It is situated in the west coast of peninsular Malaysia. Both of us checked into Pangkor Bay View Resort. The room charges were quite nominal. Surprisingly, my room had wifi connectivity. It enabled me to speak with my family members and colleagues. My family was happy about my well being. I quickly readied myself and headed towards Village Sea Food Restaurant. The restaurant serves dishes with spices and veggies. I opted for spiced chicken with rice. It was quite amazing to eat such a hearty meal.

After eating our meals, both of us went for Coral Bay. It is said that Coral Bay is one of the best beaches in Pangkor Island with emerald green water. I saw hundreds of tourists relaxing in the beach and enjoying the amazing sunset. We clicked some pictures of coral bay and headed towards motorbike renting. The renting charges were around RM 30. I opted for a sports bike and drove it all around the island at full speed. My Norwegian friend was way back while I enjoyed the sunset by driving the bike from one point to another. I saw several fishermen and villages with kids playing around. The tour proved to be such a relief for me as I enjoyed my whole trip immensely.

Remember the last post I shared about the WorldlyCouple they talked about the Batu Caves of Malaysia right? This time allow me, Mr. Albino to share with you my story on Batu Caves... my experienced.. and all mine! lol...

batucavesmalaysia

Batu Caves is situated at Gombak District in northern Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I went to Batu Caves with my parents this week. My father was transferred recently from Norway to Kuala Lumpur as an executive for a financial company. It was a big decision for our family as we never set foot outside Norway. Since the pay was great, so we decided to settle in a great neighborhood at Kuala Lumpur.

We booked our flight with bulk load of luggage in one of the major airlines. I was quite tense as I was worried about my schooling. But, eventually, upon arriving at the Kuala Lumpur Airport, I noticed that it is a great city like Oslo in Norway. We lived in a massive apartment with all sorts of modern facilities and amenities. My parents took me to Batu Caves by renting a car in Kuala Lumpur, honestly this is a planned trip because we have book car rental in Kuala Lumpur from easybook.com online.  Car renting is quite common in Kuala Lumpur. We opted for a SUV without chauffeur as my father prefers to drive car on his own. The charges for renting a car in Kuala Lumpure are quite nominal and we were glad with its exceptional service.

We arrived at Batu Caves on time as we took MRR2 main highway in Batu Caves area. The caves were really magnificent as it mesmerized me with its exterior look. Upon reaching its entrance, we took several photographs with the caves in the background. The standing statue of Lord Murugan was phenomenal. Below this picture is Lord Muragan. Huge right?

lordmurugan

It is said that the height of the statue is 42.7 meters as it is the world’s tallest statue constructed with concrete, steel bars and gold paints.

As an animal lover, I enjoyed quite a lot seeing cynomolgus monkeys at the entrance of the temple. I fed them with some snacks and they seem to enjoy it quite a lot. The interior of the caves is exotic as it has several Hindu statues and paintings. The entrance of the temple is quite steep as one has to climb 272 steps prior setting foot inside the temple.

The most interesting feature of the temple is the Ramayana Cave which boosts a statue of Lord Hanuman – a devotee of lord Rama. The statue is around 15 meters tall. The temple is dedicated to Lord Rama as there are several paintings on the wall of the caves showing the victory of Lord Rama with the aid Lord Hanuman over evils. The cave is quite dark inside but it has substantial lightening facility which makes the statues and paintings more memorable.

The entrance shrine of the Batu Caves is magnificent. It is painted with gold and displays god and goddess. I later leant that the Batu Caves and its shrines symbolizes the victory of Lord Murugan over the demon Soorapadam. Though, I never heard of Soorapadam but it was truly a delight to tour such magnificent caves. My parents were also ecstatic at the same time. I intended to explore the flora and fauna surrounding the Batu Caves.

The lush greenery all around tempted me to explore its surrounding. I also came to know about rock climbing adventure trips around Batu Caves.

They generally start from Damai caves. Though, I never tried rock climbing in my life but I was enthralled to see others. My parents click photographs of the climbers as it was nearly vertical climb and it seemed really incredible. I asked my parents’ permission to try it once but they denied saying that it was too risky. But, they promised me that I could enroll for a beginners rock climbing class later. Overall, the astounding beauty of Batu Caves really mesmerized me.
