My first flight on Garuda, (19-Mar, Saturday) very nice new plane A330-300. Very spacious n very nice blanket, impressive. Nice quiet lounge in TIAT at Haneda that runs the courtesy on Garuda’s behalf. Look forward to the one in Jakarta on our return.
The meal is fabulous, the steak was tender n served at the right cook. Cakes – apple tart n ice cream n chocolate cake were delicious. Must say really impressed. How sad that accident some years ago cause them bad publicity.
It was raining heavily when we reached airport n at departure time.
Made reservation for a Michelin 1star yakitori restaurant in Ginza for June, the evening before our departure. A little earlier than 3 months prior. Expecting guest from NZ who will be boarding a cruise from Yokohama, cruising Pacific Ocean side towards Hokkaido. Something to look forward to hearing about n hopefully my health won’t take a bad turn.
Flight to Jakarta cruised at over 10000m about ground level. Pretty smooth flight n we slept after lunch. Comfortable flight I must say.
Flight on KLM certainly has triggered much sweet memory of our stay in Holland, at my friend’s place. Definitely makes us feel like wanting to visit again.
So here we are (21-Mar, Monday), shut out from the world from now on, with only nature n golf to entertain us. At the least this place has some web connection for us to somewhat read a bit of news. Years back, we’ve been to island where web connection, TV, radio were not available. Yet it turned out to be a fabulous stay, we felt so healthy. Nature is simply amazing.
It was nice time catching up with my bro for stay n golf. Then my shoe gave up it’s sole half way. Disturbed our evening of nice dinner after golf simply to look for golf shoe. Felt bad about the whole ordeal.
By the pool side, the decor of a splashing basket upon filling up a fabulous idea. The timed sound of water splash is a soothing sound as I write n read. Aah…… will be reading so again – Melekeh (Queen) a religious suspense fiction. More interesting than thought. At this point, we have the pool side to ourselves – fantastic.
Breakfast was good as with feedback on TA. The eggs – porched n omelette are delicious. Definitely, the egg is GOOD. The chef is good at it n with the good quality of egg is surely, would cost a fortune to have such tasty egg in JP.
Met up with our guests, who visited us with a stay n play package. Enjoyed bak kut teh dinner at Klang together, then came back to resort for golf the next morning. It was a hot day compared the day before (Tuesday). Too bad for her. Yet we enjoyed much.
Tried leg spa massage in the late afternoon. Fantastic as I have not got a chance for a long time since we hardly did resort trip the past few years. Look forward to another spa massage before leaving.
Meals are delicious AR the golfers terrace. We were served buffet breakfast this morning as JKR held their event here. We have more guests n others to join us by pool side today. The past 2 days were only us ! Such valuable quiet relaxing time, which we enjoyed every moment.
Hopefully others patron will use this facility with care as they would of their house. Notice some spotting on toilet cover, flooring in our room though not extreme. It is a wonderful escapade from city, nature lacking lifestyle. Luxury can mean differently to different persons.
Raining in the morning (25-Mar, Good Friday), God’s way of giving me a chance to listen in to Precept special webcast (12hours difference from USA). We golfed thereafter, supposedly hottest hours here but turned out good as we got to skip the many golfers for the day. It is a discounted green fee day.
We are becoming like bit of a fame guests here, probably the first longest stay guest – 8 days. Everyone seemed surprised to hear us staying here for the whole week but given the activities list, the stay would be packed easily. I have to give up the mini trips to Morib village, Crab Island. I sure hope to do kayaking tomorrow after ATV ride in the morning. Already have a spa arrangement in mid afternoon.
Tried ATV motorcycles this morning (26-Mar, Saturday), animal island, kayaking. Fantastic activities, all finished off fast though the animal island is very small. Yet for RM$10- pp, it included a nice short boat ride too. We saw paragliding from Bukit Jugra, about 8 of them. Hope to try that next time. We have too give up on Crab Island visit also. Definitely sticking to no hurry-schedule style. Why so when we will be back to real life after tomorrow. lolol…… the laundry has piled high already.
Easter Sunday (27-Mar, Sunday), listened in to sermon, glad to have to such feature in 21st century. What an encouragement.
All staffs are getting used to us by now, the 7th day of our stay. It is becoming homely to us. Must admit, feel like not leaving….lolol………. Every weekend the course is full of golfers – company tournament, group tournament n even an alumni golf event (Aston University). What a fantastic idea.
We’ll be playing afternoon golf today, our last round in this trip. Checking out tomorrow. We’ll have a long transit in Jakarta on way back n surely lounge access will be lovely.
So…..the last morning (28-Mar (Monday) of dream-like resort relaxing has come. Still didn’t cut 90 as I aimed for. Ugrrhhhhhhh……
