Tanjung Dawai

Thursday, October 29, 2009

(At last, after ages of waiting, the post has finally revealed.)

Hello to our all valued viewer, thank you so much for your support to our blog. Without you, there will be no meaning for our reveal. This reveal was held at one of the tourism spot in Kedah, it is named Tanjung Dawai.

The reveal for Tanjung Dawai was did in 24th September, it was during Raya week. We arrived there approximately at 5:30PM, and by the time we got there, there was quite a lot of visitor; well, it was in Raya week, so it is normal. By the way, we are very sorry for late posting, it seems that after Raya, we quite busy with our own study.

Tanjung Dawai is located about 30KM from Sungai Petani. For those who don't know, Tanjung Dawai is a home for fisherman (fisherman village). Most of the populace in Tanjung Dawai doing fisherman job for their income. But, there are several other jobs done among the residents; small business such as selling shrimp paste, selling foods and drinks at stall, and groceries. Since this is a fisherman village, it's likely easy to get seafood in here. So, for those who want to taste the variety of seafood cuisine, please do come here. If you feel only by eating seafood is not enough, feeling want to try to cook at home, or maybe feels don't trust outside food, you people can get fresh fishes around here. When we were at the reveal scene, we didn't fill in our stomach since we've already eaten before the reveal. So we just bought ice blended for RM2 each, 3 packets of fish satay, and mineral water.

No beach can be found here, since it is a fisherman village. The soil underwater is all muddy, and it is very not suitable to do any beach activity. But, by letting the soothing wind and air blowing towards you, it feels more enjoyable even just sitting on the rocks nearby. Trust me, you'll feel don't want to get back home, that's the power of nature; which can never be copied or created by mankind.

Anybody like fishing? This place is sure for you guys. The banks have been filled with massive rocks, but not too big like Stonehenge, just the size are suitable for support human to sit on it. When we were there, there are several dudes with their fishing pole, waiting for their "harvest".

Opposite of Tanjung Dawai, separated by the sea, we can see another land, it is Pantai Merdeka; another famous tourism spot in Kedah. From here (Tanjung Dawai), there is a jetty that can take you to the opposite land (Pantai Merdeka), but it is not free of course. To go to Pantai Merdeka, it will only cost you RM2, for kids and adults.

For this reveal, I think this is the only I can write about. As usual, we're going to say "stay tune with us for more exciting spot". See you next time, swoooshh!!

Animals, listen here...don't walk around here...or you'll be fined RM300...LOL!!!!

Hello again, this the continued part of the Port Dickson's reveal. The next day we went to the beach, it is called Teluk Kemang. Actually there are many beach in PD but as what they inform me, this is the most popular among others.

Well, not much that i can told u guys about what they have here but at there they got everything that whats a "beach" should have like banana boat, the chair that u can lie on, "pelampung" that u can rent, and also jet ski. There are a lot of dealer there so u can negotiate with them about the price. I try to asked one of the dealer about the price of riding banana boat, he said that u can choose from RM7, Rm10 and Rm15 base on the distance. 

There are also plenty of place that u can hang around, so u may feel comfortable to be with ur companion. One of the thing that make this beach popular here is maybe because of it is clean environment.  It is a nice place to hang around with friends and family. So come around and have a relaxing and fun moment here. Thats all from me now. SWWOOSSSHHH!!

Port Dickson

Friday, April 3, 2009

Good day to our fellow reader. This time we go to more further destination, Port Dickson (PD) in Negeri Sembilan. This is one of the most popular place in Malaysia, but not everybody had come here. So this time i'm doing this reveal all by myself without other Reveal Crew because this is not a formal Reveal activities but when some of my friend decide to go on vacation to PD I decide to reveal this place.

Well this is my first time here, so I didn't have much information of this place. So i'm writing this article base on what I know and my observation. We stay in PD for 2 days 1 night. We stay at Corus Apartment, it cost only RM95 for one day in weekdays and the price for the weekend and holiday season are different it cost RM1** but it is still consider as a relevant price.

This apartment are stated by the sea side, so when u go to the balcony u can have a wonderful sea view and feel the sea breeze rushing towards u, so refreshing. At the evening u can have a walk by the sea side and enjoying the sunset, really romantic scene. They also provide the beach football and volleyball facilities there. Also u can have bbq there or just go to the restaurant there and having ur meal by the sea.

The placed we stayed that day are not stated near the beach, and due to the lack of time we decide to go to the beach next day. I will write the article about the beach at PD in the next article so stay tuned with us. SWOOSSHHHH

Gunung Keriang

Tuesday, March 31, 2009

Okaaaay. Let me bring you to the one of the............................"recreation park"? Well, it is not a park actually, but it is a high land area, and there is a mountain (not a big and tall mountain actually) with beauty scenery, that even could turn the place from a non-recreational are to the one. Furthermore, not only a scenery can be found here, but there are more. Let me make clear to you, actually, the area is not at the exact mountain, only the nearby place, at the low land.

Okaaaay (for the second time), I went to this place in the evening of 28th March with a friend, who also a sidekick, or a photographer, or a person who willing to lend a hand for Let's Reveal, well, "a friend in need is a friend indeed". Okay? Okaaaay (third time). Back to the point. Gunung Keriang is located about 10KM from Alor Star capital city (I guess...). When we were reaching at the entrence of the Gunung Keriang area, we need to get through some residence area. Actually, not really in front of the houses, but there is a road that leading us to the mountain, and the road is absolutely no in front of the residence's houses. Along the road, we can see shops and stalls. You also can do some shopping if you want (LOL), but I only can remember a jubin shop. By the way, nothing is interesting to shop about, because they only sell household for the resident's needs.

So, I'll make this clear to you all. We were not explore the whole area due to the wheather condition.

Just after we entered the area through the entrence, we saw many small stalls selling crystals at the edge of the road. Some crystals are huge, some others are small. If i have a girlfriend, I'm sure to stop by to buy a small one just before we left the scene, regardles the rain. Enough of that, my friend brought me with his car, drove to the upper part of the area. For those who loves wild animals, you can see many monkeys here. Enough of that too, my friend brought me to the upper parts of the area, and we reached to a park. At here, I was told by my friend to taste the main of the minor attraction of Gunung Keriang, the delicious keropok lekor, sells by a family business. They provide us table and chairs for their customers. So, we sat there and spend RM8 for the meals. We ordered the thick and thin keropok lekor, and also, the most tasty of all, the thick keropok lekor that been stir up with chilli sauce. It was damn good tasteful, you should try. Also, the price is cheap if you compare the price at Ipoh, or KL and else, where you'll only get five(5) pieces of keropok lekor for RM1, but here, RM1 for ten(10) pieces.

After we finished our meals, we started to get the pictures and view the place. But, suddenly, its started raining. My friend wants to bring me to the higher where he said we can see the beauty scenery of the nearby areas, but due to the raining day, the programme has collapsed. So, in this article, we only can show you the only pictures that we got the chance to take; the keropok lekor and th scenery of the mountain side (the mountain's looks like).

So, this is all from me, I believe there is a reveal in Port Dickson, so stay tune for more reveal, SWOOOOSHH..!!

Reveal Kedah 1 Part 4 - Nasi Goreng Pattaya & The Carnival

Tuesday, March 24, 2009

Hey everyone, welcome back to our blog; "Let's Reveal". In this article, part 4, I will expose to you, our dear readers, the good taste and cheap nasi goreng pattaya, and our main destination; to The Carnivall.We went to Billion’s food court for our lunch break, if anybody want to ask “why?”, the answer is lay in the food court. If you’ve ever been there, or will be there, try to buy your meals at Stall No.2.

There’s where you can get a tasteful and cheap nasi goreng pattaya. With only RM3, you can get a plate of nasi goreng pattaya, with a lot of friend rice. It’s not easy to find something as that nowadays. Anyway, for the drinks, you can choose either you want the small or the big glass, and the price is different, of course.

Next, to The Carnivall; the only one theme park in Kedah. The Carnivall made its debut opening somewhere in 2007. At that time, we can easily spotted its advertisement in newspaper, almost everyday. The area is located in Sungai Petani, and I can't give you the exact information and description about this place, because I didn't wrote anything (but maybe the other Reveal Members can). The Carnivall can give you a guarantee that even the place isn't much bigger than Bukit Merah in Perak, but the games, landscapes, and the facilities will make you satisfy if you spend your whole day in the park. One more thing, by the time we went there, we got this special discount, RM18 per adult, rather than RM22. Furthermore, we got free food and drinks.


Reveal Kedah 1 Part 3 - Kedah Royal Museum

Wednesday, March 18, 2009


All right, let’s make this quick, I’m tired of typing (but it was my fault). Kedah Royal Museum is located just a few meters from arts museum. Everybody is indeed able to walk from the arts museum. And, the rule also same as the other museums; no taking picture inside the museum.

This museum keeps much of the state’s past history. You can find the name of the past Sultans (the higher ruler before the existence of “minister”), the members of the royal family, and the most interesting is, this museum used to be a palace in the past. You also may found out how was the state got its name. And also, this museum is still keeping the personal items that belonged to the royal family.


Reveal Kedah 1 Part 2 - Kedah Tower & Arts Museum

Tuesday, March 17, 2009

Okay...right now, I'm going to bring you along to the Kedah Tower and Kedah State of Art Museum. But, be reminded, I only bring you by mentality, not physically, so what was I meant is, you read, then you imagine it. That's how mentality works, HAHAHAHA.

I start with Kedah Tower. Just after we've done in state museum, we moved to the state tower, it is named Kedah Tower. Our first plan was to enter the tower, and get to the view floor, and get the pictures how does the view from the tower. But, due to the lack of funds, and furthermore it was in day, we cancelled the plan, the view only be magnificent in night. So we only spend out time at the tower's area. There is a replica of Kedah Tower not far from the tower entrence.

Next, we move on to Kedah State of Arts Museum. Its location is not too far from Kedah Tower, you can only walk to arts museum from the tower. For those who eager to know about the local arts, arts museum is a perfect place. The rule in order to enter the arts museum is still the same, no taking picture inside the museum.

Want to know the name of local artist? You can find it here, in arts museum. Most of the paints are titled, some of them are untitled, and we can see the name of the artist who did the paint. The museum also keeps the artworks other than paint, such as sculpture and carving.
