Kampung Saya (Malaysia Day Special) | Pahang Darul Makmur, The Abode of Tranquility
If you check out Pahang in the map, you’ll know that it’s actually the largest state in Peninsular Malaysia. But what does this state have to offer to the country/world?
First of all, hill resorts: Cameron Highlands, Genting Highlands, Fraser’s Hill & Bukit Tinggi. Pahang is the place to go to if you want a cooling place that’s not too far from home! A little fun fact: Cameron Highlands was actually developed by the British colonials to escape from the Malaysian heat! It was considered a haven for the homesick colonials.
Genting Highlands is also located in the state, just a 30-minute car ride away from KL. It is known as Malaysia’s playground with the country’s only casino, several hotels & a theme park! As many already knows, the theme park is currently being constructed and it will be the first ever 20th Century Fox Studios Theme Park in the world. The park will be 25-acres in size and will feature around 25 thrill rides and attractions based on films like Rio, Ice Age, Life of Pi, Night at the Museum, Planet of the Apes, Alien vs. Predator and Titanic. Can’t wait! I’d probably be first in line when it opens!
Other than that, Pahang is well-known for their 130-million year old Taman Negara - our National Park. Even older than the Amazon Rainforest apparently! It is the first and oldest protected forest area in the country, it was declared as protected by the Sultans of Kelantan, Terengganu & Pahang in 1938. There are river cruises, canopy walk, jungle trekking and cave exploration too.
Another thing Pahang-ians should be proud of is their islands - the most known Pahang-ian island: Pulau Tioman. The island is a popular scuba diving spot with numerous coral reefs surrounding the island. It’s no surprise it was listed as one of the most beautiful islands in the world by TIME Magazine. According to legend, Tioman is the resting place of a dragon princess who stopped by the island while on the way to visit her Prince in Singapore. She was too captivated by the beauty of the island, she decided to stay there for eternity.
The more you say it, the more you believe it. The more you believe it, the truer it will become as you strengthen yourself and your confidence!
So, you’ll come across so many people in your life. Ones you think will stay in your life, stay with you forever. You come across people you will love, very much. But sometimes love isn’t enough to tackle all the obstacles in life and you will have to deal with the heartbreak of knowing that that person you love is gone and you’re left, alone, to try your very hardest to fall out of love. To do something you never thought you’d have to do. Just keep your head held high. Don’t let it get to you, don’t fall apart. Clear your heart and let it go. And when it comes around again, let love in. Because you never know. It’s all about having faith.
