Johor Premium Outlets

Johor Premium Outlet ( JPO) officially launced by Malaysia prime minister at December 11 2011. There is some 80 designer and branded stores including Armani, Burberry, CK, Coach, DKNY, Lacoste, Levi's, Michael Kors, Nike , Raph Lauren, Timberland, etc.  Besides outlets they have some dining places like Starbucks, Kampachi Japanese Restaurant, The coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Crispy Crepe and a food court with varieties of foods ( including chinese, japanese, Malay and western foods)


After visited the outlet i'm kind of dissapointed with it, some of the stores price is not as cheap as expected and it's more expensive compare to Cabazon Premium Outlet in California. Besides that some stores didn't turn on their air conditioning, it's very uncomfortable and lack of oxygen inside(saturated with people )
It took me about 3 hours + drive from Kuala Lumpur to JPO, it is very easy to reach.

Direction to JPO from Kuala Lumpur:
 From Kuala Lumpur take the Plus NorthSouth Highway

Exit at ramp (Exit 253 ) toward South Senai, Nusajaya, Ulu Tiram.

Then take next exit to Senai airport and Ulu tiram

you will saw a big Johor Premium Outlet signboard on the left, just follow the signboard and turn left to the premium outlet which is 1 km from the signboard.

Taman Negara ( Malaysia National Park) Kuala Tahan

Last week we went to Malaysia National Park aka Taman Negara. Taman Negara covering 3 states; including Kelantan, Pahang and Terengganu covering some 4,343 km² and is noted as one of the oldest tropical rain forest. We went there through Kuala Tahan, Pahang entrance which is more "developed" compare to others entrance because Kuala Tahan entrance is more convenience ( accessible by car)   compare to others that accessible only by boat. Beside that Kuala Tahan entrance is where "the world longest canopy walkway" located. The walkway is 510 meter in length and up to 45m height from ground. We spend 3 days 2 night there and it's lot of joy.

Best time to visit Taman Negara is from February to September ( to avoid monsoon season )
bring insect repellent ( to keep insect away from you)
comfortable wear (i.e  t-shirt, high humidity )
sport shoe with sock ( leeches is common in rain forest )
drink plenty of water
bring some medication in case of falling sick
bring camera to capture amazing fauna and flora
go for the longest canopy walk in the world ( it's kind of fun, walking up to 45m above the trees where you can clearly see the layer of the rain forest canopy, full with flora and fauna)

Taman Negara, Kuala Tahan Entrance

Oldest tropical rain forest, hiking, relaxing, bird watching, varieties wildlife, canopy walkway, etc.

From KL you either can take train or by car. 
by train take train from KL Sentral toward Jerantut , at jerantut take taxi to Taman Negara.

World Orchid Conference 2011

Went to World Orchid Conference ( WOC) 2011 at Sands Expo and Convention Center, Marina Bay Sands, Singapore last week. WOC is held every 3 years in different cities around the world. It's open to public from 13-20th Nov 2011.Displays at WOC consists of amateur orchid societies, commercial grower and   municipal that want to introduce their city. There is also some art, decoration, photography, drawing ,ect related to orchid being exhibited. Overall, the 2011 world orchid conference is good, but the arrangement make us difficult to compare the winning plants. They display all the plant in the landscape competition area according to country, so there is no way categories comparison. It's is easier for visitor to compare the winning plants if they are side by side. 

just upload some of the photos ( too much)

For your information, the favorite vanilla flavor  is from orchid and Paphiopedilum is called slipper orchid.
