Holiday at Bukit Tinggi (Part 3) - Shooting range with paintball gun

My boys and I have the chance to play with the paintball gun at the practice shooting range at the hotel.  10 balls for MYR10.  Both my boys were so exciting and we took this opportunity to try our skill since both my boys always play the bloodshot pc games.

Finally, I hit 7 out of 10 shots beat both my boys. 


That night we went to have our dinner at the restaurant at the hotel, i cannot recalled the hotel name but the food should be ok.

Holiday at Bukit Tinggi (Part 1) - Colmar Hotel

Bukit Tinggi is just over an hour's drive from Kuala Lumpur City centre and lies some 2,500 feet above sea level.

Colmar Tropicale, located in Bukit Tinggi, Pahang, is a replica of a collection of buildings from a north-eastern village in France dating back to the 16th Century.  Do not drive there alone at night, it a quite scary.  I took 20 minutes to drive from the entrance from highway until up to the hotel and too many bend road. For the racer, I think you guys like it.

The French themed resort was opened in July 2000. It's surrounded by lush tropical forest land. Just RM 16 for adults and RM 8 for children below twelve, you can enjoy the various entertainment at Colmar Tropicale.

Cuci The Musical Last Kopek

Last Friday, I took my wife to watch the Cuci The Musical Last Kopek at Istana Budaya. The Istana Budaya or The Palace of Culture, founded in September 1999, is Malaysia's main venue for all types of theatre including musical theatre, operetta, classical concert and opera from local and international performances. It is located next to the National Art Gallery in Jalan Tun Razak at the heart of Kuala Lumpur.

It was a great show and the audiences have one of the best laugh on Friday night. All work tensions were disappeared by the happy mood. Nabil is the best kind and because of his ‘on the spot’ jokes, we were laughing all the ways until the jaw dropped to the floor. Afdlin Shauki and Awie showed their talents of singing. Surprisingly, the show is directed by Harith Iskandar who is the best ‘stand-up’ comedian in Malaysia. A big clap to Hans Isaac for his good choice of actors and director for the show.

Trip To Pulau Pinang - (Part 3 -Penang War Museum)

Our second stop is Penang War Museum.  This fortress is located at Batu Maung Hill.  It was built in the 1930's by the British to protect the Penang Island from the invasion of enemies. During World War 2, this fortress came under attacked and fell to the Japanese.  It was then used as Japanese army base where interrogation and torture of prisoners for information.  That is why the local said that the fortress is haunted.

The area is quite big and need to spend about 2 hours to walk and climb. We decided not to further explore the fortress and just took some photo at the entrance.
