Eid Mubarak 2020

Today, in Malaysia, Muslims are celebrating the Eid, which marks the end of the Ramadan month. The day that starts the meeting of relatives from far and family members, old friends and colleagues.

However, due to the new norm set for Covid 19 crisis, that has affected Malaysia as well, the celebration of Eid is done with limitations.
Today, we are free to travel to visit our families living near us. Intrastate travel is allowed today for Eid celebration. Everyone should adhere to the new norms such as the use of face cover,  maintain a distance of 1 meter from each other, wash hands often. No shaking hands, no kissing, no touching, no close conversation allowed. Preferably to take care of our elders and children as they seem more vulnerable to the Covid 19. 
All interstate travel are forbidden, unless you have reasons and it is a must trip. Today, we visited my father and mother in law, which is around 5 km away.  From my observation, small visits may be safe. However, if you have chil…

Gunung Jerai - Mount Jerai

One of the attractions in Kedah is Gunung Jerai - Mount Jerai is a mountain in Kedah with the height of 3,854 feet. I started my journey from Alor Setar at 9 am via the North - South Highway, exit via Gurun takes around 30 mins, and from Gurun till up to the Mount Jerai another 30 mins or so.

The road to the mountain top is accessible via car or if you are not confident in driving yourself you can go with van rental, available at the parking area at the foothill. As I understand, the van ticket is RM 8 per person.

The road is easy but there are narrow parts and lots of curves. Some of them are abrupt climb and need good attention and driving skills. The road has some mirrors to help you while driving at the curves, but unfortunately some are missing/vandalised. The road has no street lights. It is recommended to drive during day time.

On the top is the Regency Jerai Hill Resort, The Puncak Restaurant, Cafe Point, Telaga Tok Sheikh, Mushroom Farm (no chance to visit as it was closed) and the Botanical Park.

The View from the top of Mount is outstanding, if the weather conditions are favorable. You will notice the paddy fields, the sea and some parts of the northern Kedah state.

The weather is just wonderful, with temperature comparable to the Cameron or Genting Highlands.

The view and the the beautiful flowers will take your breath.
