This is the first time in my life where I actually went for a holiday after a day into the new year!
Despite the relatively short duration and close proximity of the holiday destination to my point of departure, it was nevertheless a trip away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
At a mere cost of $198/adult, the 2 days 1 night trip organised by Desaru Fruit Farm Tour & Travel really exceeded my expectation.
Food...was definitely the primary motivation for joining the tour. To prove the point, on the day of arrival, we were presented with an 8-course lunch.
Three hours later, we were driven to a seafood restaurant where we were once again presented with another 8-course dinner.
Breakfast the following morning consisted of an international breakfast buffet bar. Three hours later, on a beach near a fishermen village, we spotted a pushcart selling the famous Malaysia Ramly Burger. Despite a full tummy, we simply couldn't resist the temptation!
And 15 minutes into the burger, we heard a distant familiar "ring" "ring" which could only be the ice-cream man. Had he not parked his motobike just next to us, we would not have ended up with two huge ice-cream cones in our hands. And this was despite the schedule for lunch in another 30 minutes!
Lunch was again another 8-course affair!
What a way to start the new year! May this signify a great start to 2009! :)
