Austin Heights Water & Adventure Park- A Perfect Family Getaway in Johor, Malaysia

As a teenager, the number one place for my friends to hang out on weekends was the Sunway Lagoon Water Park. They loved going on crazy rollercoaster rides and getting wet going down water chutes and enjoying the wave pool. Me? I'd rather spend my day reading or watching movies at home with dad!

When I was invited to check out the new Austin Heights Water & Adventure Park, I was a little apprehensive but I'm glad I went! It is just a five-minute ride away from the Austin Heights Golf & Hotel Resort where you can play a round of golf at the 6165 meter 18-hole championship golf course.

You can read more about the hotel and golf course HERE.

The Austin Heights Water & Adventure park is great even for people who, like me, rather stay dry unless I'm at a beach!

For those of you who love water and adventure, this place won't disappoint you as they have something for everyone.

Austin Heights Adventure & Water Park

Let's start with the Water Park. This area has 14, (yes 14!) attractions within it. For toddlers who are still afraid to go on rides and in the big pool, they can enjoy the "Hola-Flora" TOTs Play where they get squirted by giant flora showers and puddles.

For kids aged 2-12, they have the Splash World, a water playground for them to play hide and seek in and let their imaginations go wild in their own little worlds.

Supersurf comprises of 6 high-speed racing lanes which will get your heart racing especially if you decide to go the super sonic way by going down head first!

Yellow Wall is an extra wide body slide which ensures that your tube glides left and right at high speeds before spitting you out in the end.

Rainbow Hood twists and turns in the dark before unhurling you into the Lazy River, dazed and confused.

G-Force Alley (is this name enough to scare anyone off or what?) is where you sit on an air tube that will see you sliding down the snake-like curves, lifting you in the air at times and crashing before the grand G-Force finale. Uphill Battle is similar where you slide past the belly of the hill at top speeds.

Racer Bowl- if you ever wondered what it was like to twirl into a black spiral where visibility is zilch, this is the ride for you!

For the not-so-adventurous, you are not forgotten. You can listen to techno music ( not my kind of music,  but ok) at the Summer Breeze Bar where charming and entertaining bartenders helping to quench your thirst.

I didn't notice any bartenders when I was there but again,  I'm short-sighted. With drinks come food and you can book your own BBQ host at the Cabana BBQ area. If BBQ isn't your thing, opt for the Mini Food Carts for quick bites.

If the squills of laughter have tempted you enough to rejoin in the fun, you can start slow at the Austin Wave Pool and Lazy River before making you way to the heart-pumping water rides.

What about the Adventure Park? There is an Indoor and Outdoor Adventure Park with 51 obstacles where you can pretend to be Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider or Harrison Ford in Indiana Jones. Here, you will step gingerly across swooden planks and structures suspended 20-30 feet above the ground and swing through the air on the zipline.

This adventure park features rope and steel cable suspension structures that link through the indoor entrance area to the open area of the Water Park.

Besides the adrenaline-rush inducing Water and Adventure Park, there is also a Sports and Leisure Park where you can bounce yourself to fitness at Jumpstreet, reenact scenes from Bambi at the ice skating ring and pretend to be a Fast & Furious rider at the Drift Car circuit.

In the video below,  you can see the drift car track below the Indoor Adventure Park.

9 Organic Skincare Online Stores in Malaysia

Lately, consumers have been more conscious about the food/ drinks, products that we consume and use. Choosing what to consume or use can be confusing as researchers say one thing and then change their verdict a few years down the road.

For example, there have been lots of contradicting research data about palm oil, coconut oil, corn oil, coffee, tea, wine, and vegetables. Of course, we know that sometimes research is biased towards a certain countries economic gain. A country whose economic growth depends on coffee beans will, of course, say that coffee is healthier to consume than tea and vice versa, wouldn't you think?

So how do we decide what's good for us? Naturally, it's best to just use products that our forefathers (or foremothers?) have been using without any health issues. So it's about going back to basics without the extra preservatives and chemicals. Eat the vegetables that are grown in your garden like how our great grandparents used to do. No land to gro…

Decorated with Mercedes-Benz Stylo's signature colour red, huge flowers, a wall lined with an assortment of single sofas and chairs for guest photo ops and a gold cage in the middle of KL Gateway's centre court, guests were ready to be enchanted by the fashion collection inspired by NEUTROGENA® HAPPY SKIN.
Prettily dressed guests were first ushered to an area where sleek Mercedes-Benz cars were displayed to be admired while they nibbled on hors d'oeuvres and ordered Red Bull served in glasses. At 7.30pm, they were then invited to go the third floor where the fashion show was to be held.

NEUTROGENA®  products were strategically placed at the entrance of the draped show area for guests to try. Beauty Consultants were ready to assist guests with any skincare concerns they may have.

An hour later, the show began once Datuk Nancy Yeoh, President & CEO of STYLO International and Chairman of MBSTYLOAFF arrived but not before Julia Teo, Associate Marketing Director of Johnson…

The Hunt of for the Milky Way Sabah- Day 2 to 4 Ranau and Kundasang

Day 2- Ranau

So hubby and I survived the winter of Tambunan, and we had a simple breakfast of nasi lemak bungkus which was served with a bowl of soup at Tambunan Town (it's a Sabahan norm to have soup served at every meal, we discovered). The group said they were heading to the waterfall about 30 minutes away after breakfast then will check out and head to Sabah Tea Garden, Ranau (where do they get their energy???).

I said we would join them at the waterfall after freshening up at the hotel. Our hotel bed had other plans. It enveloped us and refused to let us go until noon so I meekly messaged Emma that we would join them at Sabah Tea Garden.

After we free-ed ourselves from the clutches of the bed, we made our way to Mahua Waterfall where we were greeted by green and hilly landscapes before reaching a fairly lonely road (really I think we only passed one car on the way there). After a lonely 20 - minute ride, we saw about 20 cars parked at the entrance which is a huge difference …
