Pantai Remis, Kuala Selangor

While heading back home after visiting Bukit Melawati, Kuala Selangor, along the way we stop by Pantai Remis. Just unable to stop the urge to see the seaside when noticed the spot.

The beach wasn't ideal for swimming because of its rocky shore. Anyhow it's still enjoyable to see the horizon of sea water.

Ivan of cause without hesitation gets his hands and foots wet. Reanne on the other hand was a little hesitated.

Trip to Bukit Melawati, Kuala Selangor

Had a short break away last June at Bukit Melawati, Kuala Selangor with own family.

It was my first trip there (as far as I can remember). Same goes to Ivan and Reanne. Not so for Soo Pei as she has been there before.

We stop by Kuala Selangor town a while only then we when up the Bukit Melawati by a train ride. Upon reaching the top, immediately we can see the famous light house facing towards the sea view. Greeting us on top are the many Silverleaf Monkey (that's what they were called) eagerly awaiting for hand out foods.

Wonderful breeze sweeping across the hills that day. And beautiful blue sky with curtain of cloud.

Mommy conduct art craft for nursery class

Captured a short video on the church sunday nursery craft works conducted by mommy.

It was Soo Pei first time doing such class. Anyhow it was a new programme for the church nursery under sister Sharon Chong's supervision. Mommy have spend quite some time to prepare for the class. Buying the necessary materials, pre-prepare the cut out material for easy stick on. She design and then made a sample.

I would say most if not all the children and parents enjoy the session. Bravo to my missus!

1st Family Movie Outing on 2010

Incredible as it seems but we did make it successfully through the whole Toy Story 3 movie without any unwanted incident. Given that this is the very first movie outing for Reanne and only 2nd for Ivan.

As for me, I have been dying to go for movie after along abstaining mainly due to the kids. Worry they unable to sit through the movie and noisy. Surprisingly Ivan and Reanne both enjoy watching the movie. Most properly because the movie was an animation and it's good one.

I for one was pretty happy able to enter the cinema again. So also my missus. It was a nice break for the parents :)

So what is the next show we are going? Can't wait!

KTM Electric Train Service (ETS) for Seremban - Ipoh

The Electric Train Services (ETS) started its commercial run on 12th August with 10 trips between Ipoh and Seremban with a six-month promotion rate of RM30 one way. A 40% discount would be given to children under 12, the physically-challenged and senior citizens. It would take only two hours from Ipoh to KL at an average speed of 110kph and up to a maximum of 160 kph.

The each 350-passenger coach would have disabled-friendly features, closed-circuit television cameras for passenger safety, overhead compartments, a food and beverage section and WiFi connections coming soon.

The ETS will stop in Batu Gajah, Kampar, Tanjung Malim, Kuala Lumpur, KL Sentral. Bandar Tasik Selatan and Nilai on its Ipoh-Seremban route. The journey will begin at 4am from Ipoh and 9.59am from Seremban.

Five trains will depart from Ipoh and Seremban daily. This will be increased to eight runs each in November.

RM30 per person per trip actually not that affordable given that it is a public transport. No doubt it's of environmental friendly. I believe the fare should be slightly lower to encourage more public to use it. If you calculate the cost, a family of 4 person have to spend RM120 per trip up to Ipoh. No so cost effective if compared to driving own car.
