It’s surrounding with the Malaysia πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ύ ‘s largest manmade freshwater lake πŸ’¦πŸ’§ (7️⃣k acres) named Bukit Merah πŸžπŸ’¦πŸ’§ & approximately 3️⃣-hour drive 🚐 from Kuala Lumpur city & through Bukit Merah toll Exit 150 along the North-South Expressway πŸ›£

Room

After buffet lunch 🍽🍴@ Lelac Cafe, she πŸ‘©πŸ» went to check-in πŸ” with her media friend πŸ‘­to a standard hotel room πŸ›ŒπŸšΏπŸš½

A simple, clean yet comfy stay with toiletries available. There is no ❌ iron / hair dryer available in the hotel room πŸ›Œ

However, no wifi βŒπŸ“Ά network detection in the hotel room, though the wifi password was printed on the hotel room key πŸ”‘ ‘s envelope 😌

Frankly, the hotel rooms are considered quite well maintained πŸ‘ŒπŸ» since it’s an old resort since its establishment in 1995. More of its hotel room types & room information via 🌐 http://www.bukitmerahresort.com.my/laketown-hotel

Yeah!‼️ Let’s enjoy picking & eating the rambutan πŸ˜‹πŸ€€ at this island 🌴🏝

This island 🌴🏝 is a fruit orchard, many rambutan trees 🌳🌳 , jackfruit trees as well as “ulam” plants 🌱🌿 named Ulam Cabang Tiga. Ulam means salad πŸ₯— in Malaysia πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ύ ‘s national language.

Orang Utan Island 🌴🏝

This island 🌴🏝 is formerly know as Pulau Panjang & it started since 22 Feb 2000 with 35 acre area. 15 acres of it has been set aside for this conservation πŸ’šπŸ’š initiative i.e. As an exhibit for rehabilitation endangered species with provision for further expansion for future phases πŸ’šπŸ’š

The Orang Utan i.e. meaning “man πŸ‘« (orang) of the forest 🌳🌳 (hutan)” in Malaysia πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ύ ‘s national language ~ Bahasa Malaysia πŸ‡²πŸ‡ΎΒ It exhibits a truly human-like mannerism in many facets of its behavior πŸ˜ƒ
