A trip to Bukit Cahaya Seri Alam

Everytime Bukit Cherakah or Taman Cahaya Seri Alam is mentioned, it reminds me of an incident which I had experienced during my study years. It was way back in 1988, I was working on a standard 6 group project to do some research on the park. All 3 of us were riding a bicycle and when we reached at 'Taman Haiwan' suddenly my bike chain got out of it's place and to make things worse we were riding down the hill. So we were pretty fast and with the bike being out of control it was a nearly death experience to me. I was at the front and all of my friends were shouting at me to press the break. It was so fast and I thought I was gonna die if there was any vehicle coming up the hill. Suddenly I saw this tree, at that crucial moment I thought if I couldn't stop the bike, let the tree stop it. So I turned the bike and headed for the tree. It worked, I was saved by the tree....thank god...since then I never set my foot on the park until 'Today'...

After 21 years, here I am back to Taman Cahaya Seri Alam, parents, sisters and my family were having a trip to the park, just to spend weekend together. Somehow everything seems smaller and nearer. The ticket price is 3rm for adults and 1 rm for kids and elderlies. At first we were traveling on the bus, I was a bit puzzled of why there was no tour guide to inform on each park that we passed through. It went on till the end non stop. Finaly it stopped at the 4 seasons house and all the passangers got off. At this point still there was no words from the driver.
Queing up for the bus


We didn't go straight to the 4 seasons house, instead we had lunch picnic first. After finish eating and everybody is stuffed, we walked to the house. To enter the house, again we need to purchase a ticket, 3rm for adults and 1 rm for kids. It was so damn cold inside and the season is summer. Very nice view and quite packed with visitors. We managed to snap some photos and hurried out.

Just look at this niece of mine, and her high heels!




Having picnic lunch






Still a long way to go but my boy sleepy already



Arrival to the 4 Seasons House, catching up breath while I get the tickets.














Heading to Taman Haiwan


From the 4 Seasons House to the Taman Haiwan realy looks near on the map, but the reality is about 10 minutes walk. Quite far. Children keep asking 'Are we there yet?"

That's it, no more walking for me!




Poor mom


Top up time!


It started drizling and yet we still haven't reached the Animal Park. Lucky there was a shelter on the way, we stopped for a break and continued walking for anoher 3 minutes








My parents, the loving couple, still walking hand in hand
Before we part, we had another round of evening break. Thanks mom for giving us the treat. Overall it was enjoyable and we had tremendous time.
