or Bukit Merah (in Malay). That's where we spent our 2D1N with my family (sans my dad who has to work during CNY). We rented a 1-bedroom apt at Suria Service Apt. That's the only unit available since arrangement was made at a very last minute. Man, the place was packed with people of all types! Yang tak reti bahasa badan basah lencun berjalan kat lobi nak naik lif sampai lift pon dah macam swimming pool pon ada. Seb baik takde yang 'shuffle' kat depan orang ramai. Yang anak terberak dalam pool pon ada ok! Ni yang paling tak tahan. Terus hilang mood nak bercanda di tepian pool. Seb baik la keadaan aku tak mengizinkan aku ke dalam pool. Fyuh!! Yang makan buffet dinner amek sampai pinggan menggunung pastu half of the food tak abes pon ada. Man, I tell you these people yang takde etiquette.
Besides those people, I think the management of Bukit Merah has a BIG room to improve on the services. The server/cashier at the food court was very rude. No smile or whatsoever from them. Plus service yang tersangat la lembap. I think it is a shame the malays acted like this. If compared to those Singaporeans (malays) who work in the tourism area, man i tell you they are a lot better in terms of communication skills. Always bersemangat dan senyum sokmo. Orang-orang kita ni tak reti bersyukur, kate my mom. Masa ni la aku setuju sangat quota untuk Bumiputera dihapuskan supaya orang-orang kita ni akan lebih berusaha gigih untuk hidup. No offense but it is the truth. We've been spoon-fed for so long we depends on other people to work our lives better.
Anyway, hubby and I didn't do much there. No orang-utan island, no ecopark, no theme park. The weather didn't permit us to do so. Plus we've been to places greater than this, we think it is such a waste of money to be spent at the red hill. Sorry but if Malaysia improves our tourism activities to be at least on par with our neighbouring countries, i think i would be more than happy to cuti-cuti Malaysia instead of cuti-cuti Asean.
Maybe if the m\i\n\i\s\t\r\y responsible spends the money allocated to them to focus on improving the services rather than come out with new campaign every time a new m\i\n\i\s\t\e\r is appointed, our tourism will be much better than now.
Enjoy the pics...half of the pics is with my sister. Hence no family pics here...
