Mangrove Tour in Langkawi

This activity was done during my family holiday in Langkawi in 2009

 This tour is part of the many acitvities found in Langkawi for tourists. This is a river cruise - a journey by speedboat along a river that runs trough the mangrove swamp. For me this is an educational aktivity because it brings nature close to us. Besides enjoying the boat ride, it allowed me to see and touched things that I've never seen or touched before. Along the journey we stopped at a few places to let us see nature at close range. Among the activities that we did during the trip were:
1. Entering  the Crocodile Cave (without the crocodile) with the boat.
2. A stop at the HOLE IN THE WALL - Fish Show and Wildlife Watch
3. A visit to the Bat Cave - bats hanging to the ceiling of the cave
4. Feeding the red eagles and watching them diving for the food
5. Leasure walk in the mangrove forest
At the end of the day it was a very interesting and enjoyable aktivity. I really recommend it to those holydaying with families because it can bring a family closer  together while enjoying the beauty of nature.

Sightseeing in Alexandria

This article is taken from my mum's blog saramsa "Kenangan:Pusing-pusing di Kota Alex" . It is about her visit to Egypt right after the Hari Raya break in 2008, and one of her destination is Alexandria. This was the time when I had to stay with my aunt in Ipoh for nearly 10 days and had to "ponteng sekolah". Was I happy then, coz I don't have to go to school? ..........Nooow!.....not without my mum!
Anyway, if you are interested in wanting to know what to see or where to go if you do ever visit Alex or Egypt, do visit my mum's blog. Here is another article of her recount of her visit to Egypt
