Pulau Jerejak

Few years ago, this island was just an island whereby no people will pay attention to it. The island was allegedly used to quarantine the sick people previously and now it has been developed into an tourist attraction. After few years of staying in Penang, finally,I got the chance to go to this little island to explore. So,where is the little island that I mentioned? Penang people, I guess most of you are brilliant and able to guess which place I had gone.  Ta...ta....~ there was none other than Pulau Jerejak~~~

This little island has been equipped with some adventurous facilities and activities. More and more people getting to know about it and  this is definitely a nice place to go for one day trip. If you plan to go to this island, no preparation is needed, what you need was just MONEY and have fun there. Anyhow, the trip was not expesive, it just cost us total RM60.

We took a boat at jetty near Queen's Bay Mall to Pulau Jerejak and the time taken to reach was just around 10 minutes (I think).

When we reached there, it took some times for the guide to bring us for the first activity. Ya, there was guide available. We found this during waiting.

Therefore, instead of standing still to wait, we went back to our childhood time by pretending we were still young.

We killed the time by doing some warm up as well.

The first activity was the most exhausting activity -> jungle trekking! The jungle trekking took us more than 30 minutes (I forget to time) to complete the whole journey.
The way to jungle trekking. No photo during jungle tracking because energy was used up and I can't afford to lift up the camera anymore...

The moment you saw the suspension bridge, you may felt relieved because that indicated the end of the jungle trekking.

This cute little suspension bridge was just able to withstand 5 people weight. It was just 8m above the lake and it was suit for beginner to walk by.

After this, it was time for the highlight of the trip! The Flying Fox~~  I had waited this for a long long time as I had not experienced this before~ My heart was jumping up and down while waiting for my turn.

But, it was so fun when you were playing~ I felt that I was flying~~~ The lacking part was the distance was too short and when you started to conquer you fear, you had reached the other end of the game.  Furthermore, you were allowed to play 1 time only with the fees that you paid. Ahh... too bad!!! I want play it again!!!

Archery was the next schedule after flying fox. During our way to the archery field, we found this.

All of us syok sendiri  and played the game ourselves. My friend said those games were available in National service as well. How nice is the National service. Well, I am too old and my generation got no national service yet.

Next, the archery part.

1 person was given only 3 arrows to play.

I tried to act pro when my turn to shoot.

See, this was my result.Not bad le..

After that, the other tiring part came,the wall climbing. This was a very tough game and this was my first time to try on it.

Sadly, I can't complete the game and I just gave up half way. Sob sob. After so much tiring activities, how could I reach the top part??? Obviously it was the organiser's trick to fail us in the game. :P

Finally, the bicycle cycling did the closing for our activities package. It had been a long long time since the last time I rode.

Of course, a simple buffet lunch was served before the end of our journey.

There are others game available.
This is free~
The beach futsal.

Beach netball??

Swimming Pool (FOC)~

And table tennis, paintball, abseiling.

It will be best if there is  pub available at the beach side whereby beach party can be held, agree?


How Jun said... seem like enjoying yourself :D
