For my Sayang's Family Day, we planted ourselves for 3D2N since Friday in d area of Janda Baik...n specifically @ Zaini's Guesthouse...a cleared jungle land with several chalets n other facilities. Speaking of facilities, my Sayang commented that d toilets there are quite well equipped because Zaini's wife is a French lady...hihi [while we were there, Zaini parent-in-law were there for a visit too].
D event went over smoothly n there r always something for everyone to do...n of course at least u can qada' your zzzz if u want. It was a full-fledged Family Day with everyone contributing by bringing this n that...even d AV system [with LCD projector summore] was brought along.
