Okay, this is a year back story. I supposed to write it last year but due to busy schedule, I have to postpone it. Paradise Valley is another fun place in Semenyih besides beautiful Sek Dato Temple with suspension bridge, Broga Hill and Broga Rabbit Farm. For those staying in KL and Seremban, it is about 45 mins to 1 hour journey to reach this place. What I like most about this place is the lush greenery surrounding plus its cool tranquility.
A very big thank you to my media friend from travel magazine who brought me here. He needed a model for his magazine story cover up that time and thus I was invited together for 2 days 1 night there.
I did not get any payment for the 'job offer' but just a free stay and food provided. No...I did not get any VIP treat...hahaha...We were given a stay at a camp like above. Oh yeah, luckily separate camps for both of us! Unfortunately I did not take any photo for the interior view of the camp. It is quite spacious with 2 single beds with pillows and a standing fans and a light bulb. Nevertheless, it is very hot to stay inside the camp in the evening.
The luxury type of accommodation available here is in chalet style. Basically the resort staff will drive you up here with 4 wheels if you are the guest.
The chalets are equipped with air-cond and water heater for hot shower.
As my friend required to cover up the resort story in his magazine, thus we had a chance to visit all rooms here.
Next, we led to the dorm for a visit. At the lower floor, one of the dorm places 8 double decker beds. It is very comfy and clean unlike dorm in some places. I will highly recommended this place for companies who want to do team building activities for workers.
The attached toilet at the dorm.
This is another dorm room. Still the room is neat and clean.
Function hall for presentations, speech, singing, gathering and etc.
Perfect ambience for relaxing and stretching our tired muscles by engaging in some fun outdoor activities provided by the resort.
Take a deep breath for the fresh misty and unpolluted air the morning
The first activity that I involved as requested by my friend is the flying fox!
Pretending to be unafraid hahaha
By the time I was sitting at the deck and look down, it was quite scary! I was hesitated for a few minutes but eventually I made it!
When I slid down, the first few moments were the most terrifying part. I did not feel like I was being held by the rope as the rope at the starting point was very oblique compared with other parts (so that we can slide till the end?)
Next, we went up the hill again for the wall climbing.
Sadly, I did not manage to reach the top. I did not train my biceps and triceps and rarely involve myself in anything related to strength resistance exercise. But still I have fun xoxo
We were supposed to have kayaking after all the adrenaline-pumping activities. Unluckily, it started to rain heavily. Both of us sat at the canteen of the resort and waiting for the rain to stop. While waiting, I saw the boss fed the fishes at the pool with food, I requested if I can help him to feed the fishes too! He handed me with a pack of the fish food and I was very happy to help!
Tried to touch the fishes' bodies with finger.....a playful girl indeed
Back to the resort, we continued with the kayaking. I must say it is very easy to move the kayak as it is light weighed. And I have no issue with the activities at the pool although I don't know how to swim as the water level is until my waist only.
Next, we cycled around the resort and borrowed the motor to the aboriginal village to pay a visit. So, he is the media friend that I said, a helpful friend yet a good daddy.
That is one of the aborigine's house not far away from the resort. Two of the kids were undressed. This place is not far from the modern city of KL, but they are still very much left behind in term of the facilities and infrastructure.
Regardless of the unhappy incident at the waterfall, Paradise Valley is still a great place for retreat, team building, leadership camp, seminar, school trip and wedding reception.
