Eco Murai Rimba

Went to a beautiful place last month. It is at Batang Kali. The place is called Eco Murai Rimba and there is a river just opposite. The river is clean. So we can bathe there. Check out my video.

I like it very much, but it is abit scary at night as it is in the jungle.

Batik Painting at Barakaff Exclusive

I made two. Bunga raya and bunga refllesia. 🙂

I was very happy. Mummy bought some clothes. But there is none for me. Because they only sell adult clothes there.

Getting to Know Mandailing Tribe at Bougainvillae Homestay

Homestay is always interesting. I went to stay in homestays a couple of times with Papa and Mummy and I like them very much. The most recent homestay we visited is Bagasta Bougainvillae Homestay. It is nearby my home, somewhere in Gombak.

This homestay is run by Mandailing people. And they are very big on culture.

Check out my video. One day with Mandailing people. It is very interesting.

The rice is for sharing. I just ate the chicken. It is very tasty.

The Mandailing people are very interesting. I really like them. They are very friendly and during lunch, they keep ask me if I want more food. I was very happy.

Amazing Trip with Tourism Malaysia Selangor

My mummy is a very adventurous person. She is very different from everyone else. I’m a lucky boy because she don’t really care if I do well in school or not.

Sometimes I pity her. People sometimes says she fail as I don’t do well at school, because I am autistic and I am dyslexic. The only way for me to communicatd is online and through writing with my ipad. (I cannot write normally. It will all be backwards. And I have problems talking. It hurt my head when I do.)

But I think mummy is amazing. Cousins my age all have to go tuitions and have no life outside school, and they get scolded even when they score their exam, but I don’t have to worry about that and get to see the world because of her. They always show off. Friends too. I never like it. But it is okay. They don’t get to have fun like me.

Last week, we followed trip with Tourism Malaysia Selangor. We had fun. A lot. I like the people there. They are kind and friendly. Not like some people I meet. They don’t look at me as if I’m a freak or call me retard.

We went to alot places in just one day.

First we went to Gua Damai. For rock climbing. Mummy did rock climbing. But she don’t let me do it. Because it is too tall.

Then we visited a homestay. We get to eat nasi upah and cook sambal tempe.

 photo DSCN7316_zpsv8sbxeku.jpg

And then, we visited a Batik shop. It is called Barakaff Exclusive. Here, we get to to do Batik painting at the factory area

Lastly, we stay a night in Eco Murai Rimba. It is a nice and quiet place and there is a river just opposite of it where everyone go and swim the next day.

I will tell you more about these places. It is really fun. I promise.

Stay tune, for more. You can also follow our family blog http://blogging- circle.com(I helped with video and picture edit there because mummy don’t know how) or my instagram @aliengotravel for update. 🙂 Say hi. And I will say hi to you back.

Melaka Alive: Pirate Adventure

Do you like pirate? I like pirates, so Mummy brought me to Melaka Alive: Pirate Adventure. This is the second time I visit Melaka Alive. My first time was in April. Back in April, it was for 5D Bahtera Merdeka performance.

 photo IMG_20150826_130315_zpsskkjhtz0.jpg

Bahtera Merdeka is actually a stage kind of ship. It is located in front of Proclamation of Independence. The landmark is the famous Porta de Santiago. You know, the building people usually mistake as the A Famosa.

Melaka Alive new attraction: Pirate Adventures. Here, you can go up in the ship and play pirate for a day.

 photo IMG_20150830_183328_zps6r66snsu.jpg

There are a lot of pirates inside the ship and you need to find your way out. It is something like the horror or ghost house, but instead of ghost, there are pirates and monsters in it.
