For Introduction to Advertising assignment, my group is chosen to do an advertising research & a consumer research for Felda Sungkai Klah. & so, we went to visit Felda Sungkai Klah for the very first time in order to complete our assignment.
It’s a monday, after our communicative engliah class we went there straight.
It took us about 45 mins to reach there from Kampar. The distance of Sungkai Klah hot spring from Sungkai exit toll is about 10km. Entrance fee is RM10 for adult and RM8 for children between 3 to 11 years old. As for us, we went in for free, thanks to Ms. Farlina’s approval letter. *bigwidesmile*
Shas, Andrew & Minyee became the interviewers of the day;
while Melanie became the secretary of the day;
& last but not least, me, as the photographer of the day.
We were brought to have a look at the fully equipped and comfortable villas & also the lower budget chalet rooms.
Villa A type – 2 rooms and costs RM600/night during weekdays and RM800/night during weekend, school holidays and public holidays.
Villa B type – 1 room and costs RM450/night during weekdays and RM600/night during weekend, school holidays and public holidays.
Villa C type- 3 rooms and costs RM800/night during weekdays and RM1000/night during weekend, school holidays and public holidays.
Oh yea, did I mentioned that the villas have their very own private Jacuzzi, a totally awesome way to enjoy a relaxing bathe with family.
While the Chalet Standard Deluxe Rooms would cost RM180/night and RM220/night on weekends, school holidays and public holidays.
While we were waiting for Encik Wan, the interviewee, we walked around the resort & saw there’s a few people eating durians over there. Minyee & Andrew went to interview the customer who was eating durian over there.
and for the rest of us, Shas said we have to learn to be more thick skin. So yea, 3 of us, shas, mel & me went to join them makan durian sama sama.
couldn’t blame us, Durian is irresistable. yea.
Finally when the clock struck three, Encik Wan, the landscrapper arrived.
Had a short interview session with him, and found out that not far from the resort, there are several private industries that provide activities such as flying fox, jungle trekking, and stream trotting. There are also “orang asli” heritage houses not far from the resort.
Right after the interview session ends, we went to the Hot Spring Pool. It’s drizzling when we reach there, as such, it’s really comfortable to sunk your entire body into the warm water.
our interviewing job never stop. =)
still, we all had fun.
the girls in the group.
Besides, the another main attraction for the hot spring is none other than the small boiling hot spring which reaches the temperature of 100 celcius which people use to boil eggs.
You could buy the egg from the cafeteria at the price of rm2 for 5.
we bought 5, and is just enough for 5 of us. awesome.
1/4 boiled – 2 mins
1/2 boiled – 3 mins
3/4 boiled – 4 mins
fully boiled – 6-7 mins
We later on move on to the thereupatic park.
The park has several hot spring pool at different degrees of temperature.
The one that I remember best is the water reflexology which visitors can walk barefoot along the tarmac walkway that is covered with streams of hot water and reflexology stones to maximize the effort of the therapy. I seriously have no idea why people loves it so much. To me, it’s more like torturing me.
I prefer the pool beside the walkway that allow us to dip our leg or full body in it.
I feel like I am being boiled at first, but later on it’s pretty comfortable.
Shas sunk his whole body in and after that he claims that his neck sprain problems is cure which amazed me much. I always heard people say that natural hot spring has healing properties, and now i see how true it is.
me legs turn red when I got up from the pool.
Last stop, the Mountain Spring Pool inside the hot spring park. It source of water is the mountain spring water. It was said and supposed to be cold, but, on that day i went, it’s rather warm.
Still, I enjoyed much, because…
There’s this gigiantic slide in the middle of the pool.
You people might think, still small meh? play slides?
That’s what I thought in the first place. But right after my 1st attempt, I got addicted.
yes, it’s fun especially if you have a whole group of people slide down together.
Also, there’s this waterfall splash somewhere beside the huge octopus that act as OSIM. yea, the messaging chair/machine? we stood under it for quite awhile and enjoyed the pleasant of getting free water massage. *what to do, we failed to get free spa.*
After that, we went to shower and continue our interview session for awhile. Just when we concluded everything, out stomach started to make noise. Planned to go to Bidor for dinner, turned around at Bidor, and in the end, ended up having our dinner at Lou Wong, Ipoh.
It’s much nicer than the last time I went, or is it I am way to hungry?
Went back to Kampar after that, it’s indeed a tiring yet enjoyable trip.
p.s. – I don’t mind doing such assignment. teehee.
p.p.s. – I had combined all the photos as I am using all these for my assignment.
