This episode of weekend getaway takes place in Bukit Merah, Perak. Thanks to a friend of mine, we got a free stay in a guesthouse right inside the Bukit Merah Laketown Resort.
Before packing off to Perak, I took part in a Toastmasters Area Humorous Speech Contest in Infineon Kulim. This was my idea of fun, my adneraline rush to challenge myself. It was definitely a challenge to make a room of strangers laugh at your jokes. There weren’t many competitors and I managed to secure spots into the next level, Division, contest. I feel honoured to be called funny 😀
We stayed one night at the guesthouse and rose early to get into the waterpark before the Sunday crowd. Entrance fee is RM32 for adults.
The waterpark was quite small by my standards and the slides werent that thrilling. Except for one, called the boomerang. It is almost 3 storeys tall and you have to sit on a tube alone to slide down. My heart was caught in my throat the whole time. I went on it 3 times anyway :p The body slides required swimming suits, we weren’t allowed on them because we were wearing tshirts. Overall, you only need under 2hours to go around the Bukit Merah waterpark. And we didn’t feel going again, once was enough for us.
With this new tan, enjoy your weekend ahead people! I got to train for a division speech contest & a marathon!
