Old places, but worth visiting with the kids

Old places, but worth visiting with the kids

Although the National Planetarium has been around since 1993, I did not visit the place until around 2013. Since then, I have been truly impressed with what it has to offer, especially the dome-shaped Cineplex with the ceiling as its screen.

This is a place that is worth visiting for families especially with children, just for the experience of being in a dome-shaped Cineplex and getting the feel of watching into the dark sky which features galaxies, the stars and all kinds of mysterious space objects.

Those who are travelling from all over the countries to the Federal Capital during the school holidays should include this National Planetarium as part of their itinerary.

National Science Centre

The National Science Centre is another place that I have brought my children to visit during their growing up years. From time to time, they have different exhibitions which are worth visiting.

At one point, it was the dinosaurs. I remember my son was a fan of dinosaurs and he enjoyed every bit of the dinosaur exhibition. There were many pictures taken of him with the dinosaurs.

With the recent refurbishment of the science centre, we decided to check it out again. Despite being a normal working day on December 11 for city folks, the crowd was big and parking was a real problem.

The children enjoyed every section, with different activities that they could put their hands on, from learning about green energy to magnetism and electricity, to learning about space and aircraft technology.

This is one place that you can allow your children to play everything that is installed, as a result of which the children’s curiosity is aroused, and you may find yourself trying to find explanations to almost everything.

It was partly fun and partly educational. For example, when a spark was created by static electricity jumping across from one point to another, I was able to explain how lighting (which is also a form of static electricity) occurs.

This is much better than just learning from the textbooks. In fact, I would strongly suggest that the management of the science centre to engage part time tourist guides to bring the children on a guided tour. This will be more meaningful if it is done well.

After the day at the National Science Centre, a good place to check out for food is the Coffea Coffee café at Desa Sri Hartamas, which is just 1.3 kilometres away. 

We used Waze so as not to get lost and wasting our time looking for the exact location; so, even if you are from outstation, there is no excuse that you cannot find the place. While the children can enjoy all sorts of pasta, adults should try out their Energy Bowls and maybe their waffles or puffs.

Tomorrow about the National Museum and how to get there on MRT. Check out next week about getting close to Mother Nature at Tanah Aina Raub eco-resort and some good restaurants in Raub and Bentong. End of the month’s special feature will focus on Penang and Ipoh.

Good suggestions for kids and places to eat

Good suggestions for kids and places to eat

With school holidays just starting, parents with young kids have lot to plan for places to visit.

Here are some suggestions for both children and parents. To start with, most urban kids may not have taken the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT).

One mother, Victoria Cheng said it was a great time to bring her two children, 9-year-old Elvie and 6-year-old Emmanuel Lee to visit places like the Central Market.

“We took the MRT from Bandar Utama,” she said. “It was fun. After visiting the Central Market, we walked around Petaling Street. Usually these places are hard to get a good carpark.”

Near to the Central Market, there is a well-known beef noodle stall, Lai Foong, which has been operating there since 1956. It is one of the oldest beef noodles stall in Kuala Lumpur.

Using the MRT, one can also get to the National Museum especially for children who will be introduced to History (Sejarah) as a subject from Primary 4.

People living in Ipoh can also now come down to Kuala Lumpur for a weekend using the KTM electrified train. Getting around the federal capital is also easy using the monorail, MRT and KTM trains (especially to the suburban areas). To get around using public transport, suggest that you download two useful Applications – MeterOn and My Journey App.

From November 29, another interesting infrastructure is the Rawang bypass which is an elevated four-lane dual carriageway which cuts across Taman Warisan Negeri Selangor touted to be third largest park in Peninsular Malaysia.

Since it is right here in Selangor, what interests me is the fact that one can be

“driving alongside treetops or above them on the elevated stretch!” Read more about it here.

 

If you are making a day’s visit to the National Zoo, make sure that you also drop by one of my favourite tea house for now. Miss Ellie Tea House, which is located at Taman Melawati, is a cosy little place for Western meals, desserts and pastries.
For others who like a relaxing morning going for some fishing, you can visit Kundang Tasik Biru to check out the fish farm there. For lunch, check out the grilled patin at Mamimia Patin Champion in Laman Melati Kuang, which is just a short distance away from Rahman Putra, Sungai Buloh.

Day trippers from the Klang Valley can spend a day’s outing in Seremban. Despite having only a few ostrich compared to the early years when it first started with 70 ostriches back in 1997, Jelita Ostrich Farm in Pantai, Negeri Sembilan is still an attraction to young children. To find the place, use either Google Map or Waze.

The visit is educational as children get to learn about these ostriches which were imported from South Africa. For example, did you know that the ostrich egg can easily take the weight of 200kg?

On the way to Jelita Ostrich farm, there is also a good idea to stop by Ayam Panggang Kenyalang for lunch, then just before returning home, check out either Lucky King Bun Restaurant or if you prefer seafood, try out Seremban Seafood Village.

If you stay overnight in Seremban, on your way back to Kuala Lumpur, you should check out Putrajaya’s latest theme park – the Putrajaya Skyrides Festivals Park, touted to be the country’s first and biggest tethered helium balloon theme park.

Another place worth checking out is the MyFarm Outlet which is located at Jalan P9, Presint 9, 62250 Putrajaya. (Location on Google Map or Waze). This is where you get fresh meat and vegetables.

Another new addition in Cyberjaya is the Dash Box Hotel, which I understand from some parents, is also a great place to visit. It is a fusion of industrial chic and street art.

We have not visited Dash Box Hotel yet, but according to Kung Fu Restaurant manager, Winnie Chan during the school holidays many families who read about their food in Malaysiakini’s Voiz Asia, also come by for either lunch or dinner.

Families who will be having children going for their pre-university programmes should also check the Open Days at both Sunway University to check out their “spacecraft” futuristic style auditorium and Taylor’s fabulous Lakeside Campus.

Fishing Expedition at Fish Farm next to Tasik Biru Kundang A Thrilling Experience for Kids

Fishing Expedition at Fish Farm next to Tasik Biru Kundang A Thrilling Experience for Kids

What is exciting for the entire family is being able to haul in a big catch especially if it is a Patin Mekong fish weighing 27.1kg.

By large, according to Arif Hartono who works here, this is the largest fish that has been caught at this fish farm located just across the street from Tasik Biru Kundang.

The fish farm has been opened since 2008 to anglers who just want to have some thrill in fishing.

“The biggest local Ikan Patin that has been caught here weighs 18 kg,” he adds. “This was just a week ago.”

There are two ponds. Pond 1 is open 24 hours for anglers and the farm operator charges a fee of RM30 for three hours, and for an additional hour, the fee is RM35. For the more serious anglers, there is also night fishing.

“Whatever your catch, if it is below two kilogrammes, you can take it back home to cook or grill,” explains Arif. “If it is above two kilogrammes, then you will have to sell it back to us for RM1 per kilogramme.”

Understandably, this is a fish farm, where they breed the Patin fish for the restaurants.

Fishing in Pond 2 is open from 10am – 12 midnight. “Whatever fish you can catch here cannot be taken home. However, you get cash prizes if you hit a jackpot by catching a fish of certain weight,” elaborates Arif, pointing to a chart that shows various cash prizes available.

Tasik Biru Kundang is a short drive from Bukit Rahman Putra in Sungai Buloh. The local tourism industry here is just at its early stages but it has the potential to grow, depending on how the locals develop it into an interesting spot for local tourists.

On certain days, if you happen to be there when some jetskiers cruise the waters, it is fun to take photographs because the water looks blue from its reflection of the sky.

On certain days, if you happen to be there when some jetskiers cruise the waters, it is fun to take photographs because the water looks blue from its reflection of the sky.

There is not very much to expect from the scenic point of view but for a relaxing, “kampung style” outing for the children, it is a nice place to spend the day. If you have a drone with a good camera, you can survey around the lake and capture nice views.

After all, it is just a 25-minute drive on the Lebuhraya Damansara-Puchong and Jalan Kuala Selangor from Petaling Jaya on a traffic free weekend.

Along the way, there are a number of food stalls. We particularly like the Patin fish cooked kampung style at Patin Mamimia Champion, a small stall operated by a former banker, Mazlan and his family. Food here is suitable for the younger children as it is not spicy.

There are also other foodstalls serving Ikan Bakar, Cendul and all sorts of local kampung-style cuisines which the children would enjoy. However, do not expect the water to be blue all the time – just enjoy the day’s brief outing and the food.

    *Admission is strictly by pre-registration ONLY owing to limited seats.

    Education has also been one of the primary factors taken into consideration when choosing a country to migrate for the family.

    For holders of Australian Provisional and Permanent visas, dependent children are entitled to free education under the Australian Government up to year 12.

    The Australian National Education is voted 4th best education in the world in 2017 based on their well-developed public education system.

    For a financially-able middle and upper-class Malaysian, quality education is often pursued through international schools and institutions.

    An average Malaysian would have to spend up to RM1.4 million over 12 years of education for each child attending one of the top 5 international schools. Given that a typical Malaysian family has an average of 2 children, these figures are doubled and will come up to as much as RM2.8 million for 12 years of education.

    This savings of up to RM2.8 million that most families have calculated ahead of time, can then be allocated as an investment for a large property in a suburb in Australia where the top state school is located.

    AMA has hundreds of proven and outstanding winning records in facilitating investors with their business expansion and investments plans into Australia.

    Chelliah is an expert in legislative migration and handling complex cases, he is a skilled strategist and also a well-known media commentator.

    With a 100% success track record, Chelliah has over 40 years of working experience with the Australian Commonwealth Government Immigration Department making AMA one of the longest serving migration agents in Australia.

    Attend the seminar and discover how you can make your migration plans a successful one.

    Mesmerising Redang

    Mesmerising Redang

    Malaysia has very beautiful island resorts that deserve to be promoted.
    Not many people, for example, knew that the Hong Kong-Chinese movie, “Love You You” was shot on the Summer Bay Lang Tengah Island Resort.

    Malaysia has very beautiful island resorts that deserve to be promoted.
    Not many people, for example, knew that the Hong Kong-Chinese movie, “Love You You” was shot on the Summer Bay Lang Tengah Island Resort.

    For several years, we have returned to this beautiful part of the East Coast off Terengganu, which is well-known for its islands such as Redang, Pulau Kapas, Pulau Perhentian and Lang Tengah, especially after experiencing the magnificent marine park.

    We stayed at Lang Tengah some eight years ago. The clear sea water was simply inviting for anyone to jump into the sea but I especially loved it when we could see the colourful marine fish coming to us the moment we threw some bread into the water.

    That had given me a longing desire to return to this part of the world, so we decided to return. In fact, Redang and Perhentian here are among the three islands besides Tioman which are highly recommended by ExpatsGo.

    We were there last year at Redang Bay Resort; but this last trip which was just a week ago for four days / three nights was the best so far, as my wife managed to get a room at a very attractive subsidized rate at The Taaras Beach and Spa Resort, Redang. It is worth checking out their package.

    The resort is definitely worth another visit, if we get the chance, to explore further its facilities and, of course, to laze around on its private beach overlooking a most spectacular bay. It is simply mesmerising.

    In fact, The Taaras is one place that I would highly recommend to mother-and-son, 42-year-old Cheng Chau Yang and her eight-year-old son who are currently stranded in Shanghai over a questionable court’s travel ban preventing them from leaving China.

    I have been advising the family, and hopefully with the help of foreign minister, Anifah Aman, they will soon return to their homeland by end of September.

    At The Taaras, I also met a middle-aged couple who had stayed at the resort on a number of occasions. Pointing to a beautiful boat docked near the beach, they told me that’s they have just sailed in all the way from France. Never mind the sun, it was smiles all over on their faces.

    Swimming with the turtles.
    This time around, the biggest satisfaction was to go out on island hopping, where we were brought to a special spot, where the kids got a chance to swim with the turtles.

    Swimming with the turtles.
    This time around, the biggest satisfaction was to go out on island hopping, where we were brought to a special spot, where the kids got a chance to swim with the turtles.

    On previous excursions, we did enjoy the marine park, but on this particular island hopping, for the first time we were introduced to the friendly turtles; for this, I would recommend this operator Asmadi Redang (+60 13-928 5002/016-9215002).

    The only downside is that they did not bring us to the Marine Park, but on further discussion with Asmadi while writing this article, he agrees that locals would like to at least be able to say they have spent some time at the Marine Park and he would include Marine Park for all his trips. Foreign tourists, he added, are more interested in the quiet locations.

    According to the boat skipper, Jojo was the first of the turtles to become very tame; soon, the others also followed along. Over here in Terengganu, apart from the giant leatherback sea turtle which is also known to locals as Penyu Belimbing found mainly in Rantau Abang, there are also the other three marine turtles namely the Green, Hawksbill, and Olive ridley turtles. 

    With that, we have four out of a total of seven marine turtle species in the world! Snorkelling and swimming with the turtles is both educational and fun for the kids as they learn that sea creatures and humans can co-exist and enjoy each other’s presence when they could touch the turtles when going on snorkelling.

    The ones that we saw on this trip were the green turtles which are also known to islanders as penyu Agar, penyu Pulau or penyu Hitam. Its scientific name is Chelonia mydas.

    The skipper even caught a nemo to show them, but thankfully, the nemo was allowed to return to its habitat after some nice photography session with the kids. Guests also get to touch the sea cucumber if they ask for it.

    Something to look out for are the baby sharks near to the Long Beach. According to a reviewer on TripAdvisor, if you stay at Redang Reef Resort, you can even snorkel basically anywhere near the beach. “You can just walk a bit towards the sea and you will see fishes and marine life immediately. We got the chance to see baby sharks.” See the other reviews here.

    Because they provide safety jackets, even children as young as five or six years old can learn to float in water with some supervision by their parents.

    The marine fish here are colourful and really beautiful and children would be fascinated when they see the sea creatures in real life. Yes, nothing beats the real thing, not even the Walt Disney’s Nemo.

    On hindsight, I should have let my kids watch the movie again before the trip to Redang in order to fire up their imagination. It is a great opportunity to teach them to love the environment.

    There are several jetties here in Kuala Terengganu
    depending on which resort you are living in but the two more common ones are Shahbandar and Merang.

    There are several jetties here in Kuala Terengganu
    depending on which resort you are living in but the two more common ones are Shahbandar and Merang.

    Shahbandar Jetty is just about a kilometre away from the express bus station and to get there, you can use either Uber, Grab or the normal taxis (which you do have to negotiate the prices with the taxi drivers).

    Merang jetty is closer to Redang but it is 40 minutes away from the Kuala Terengganu on the road, but I would not recommend using private speed boat during the end of the year when the current is strong. It is also doubtful that they have public insurance since these are mainly private speed boats.

    It is important to book the ferry tickets first to avoid any disappointments especially during peak seasons. The one that we booked the tickets for this recent trip is Sejahtera Ferry Services Sdn Bhd where we find the seats more comfortable and it is licensed and come with public insurance. You can contact them at 016-416-8800 (Mr.Yap) or email them at [email protected] with cost RM55 for adults and RM30 for children.

    Overseas Investment Projects Open, Australia Ready For More Malaysian Investors

    Overseas Investment Projects Open, Australia Ready For More Malaysian Investors

    Overseas Investment Projects Open, Australia Ready For More Malaysian Investors

    Australia has been a migrating destination most sought after by Malaysian investors for many years.

    Driven by the country’s economic and political stability that offers diversity of opportunities, education and human rights protection, Australia is ranked by UNDP (United Nations Human Development) as the second-best country in the world for quality life following their “Human Development Index” statistics assessment.
    [1]

    Australia one of the most medically-advanced country

    Australia is also in the top 10 of most medically-advanced countries in the world with over US$5.5 billion invested in their medical research, which ensures better medical assurance and treatment quality. [2]

    Better and more trusted law equity

    One of the top reasons that makes Australia one of the best choices for migration is their better and more trusted law equity. Australia is best known as a country that spends every dollar of its tax-payers money on the well-being of its citizens.

    4th best country for education

    Education has been one of the primary factors taken into consideration when choosing a country to migrate for the family. With Australia ranked as 4th best country in the world for education [3] many have made it one of their top migrating destinations for the betterment of their children’s education.

    Though national standards were implemented in 2014, each state is tasked in managing their own education system to ensure its quality education is up-to- par with their high Human Development Index.

    One of the best countries for Business and Investment

    In Australia, the state government has zero interference over the conduct of private businesses, another plus point for business migrants choosing Australia as their preferred investment destination.

    With its strong, sustained economic growth, Australia has opened up more projects that target overseas investors, intending to expand their business and migrate to Australia.

    Migration into Australia is made even more appealing by its cultural diverse and beautiful natural environment, its world-class sporting facilities as well as an enviable lifestyle.

    Australia also tops a one of the best countries for retirement [4] showing an increasing numbers of migration by successful investor opting to settle down and retire in Australia.

    The Australian Migration Agents Pty Ltd (AMA) invites qualifying business owners and investors to a cost-free seminar. This seminar will allow you to understand and strategize your business and investment as a gateway to obtaining Australian Permanent Residency in Australia.

    There will be discussions on the latest Commonwealth government migration regulations, eligibility rules and policies on State Nomination, types of visas and details on projects available for overseas investors.

    Eligible investors will be expedited for a meeting with State Nomination Body to discuss their intentions.

    Presenting at the seminar is a prominent Australian Migration agent with over 27 years of practice hands-on experience, CEO of Australian Migration Agents Mr. Robert Chelliah.

    Exclusively made available for seminar participants is a question-and-answer session with Western Australia Investment and Business Specialist Mr. Hermann Steeger.

    Through AMA they will assist you in your business strategizing and expansion into Australia, providing a one stop platform, step by step guidance and assistance to the applicant and their family from beginning to Post Arrival Support Services (Final and settlement stage for successful applicants.)

    Australia is hoping to attract more overseas investors with the availability of projects in the selected fields such as Ecotourism, Food & Beverage, Hospitality Industries, Property Ownership and Development, Agro cultivation and Commercial Horticulture.

    Chelliah added,

    “Now appears to be the best time for investors to truly ride on these investment opportunities before the Australian Department of Immigration again revamps their migration legislatives.”

    Take part in the benefit of their excellent education system that is made available and affordable by the Australian Government Department of Education, in an effort to ensure they retain their 99% literacy rate while working towards a 100% literacy rate. [5]

    Australia is confident of seeing an increase in overseas investors with the amount of investment projects offered by its financial institutions and government bonds. It is through these investments, applicants have a better opportunity to migrate and experience living in Australia.
