GOLD COAST MORIB



Salam All! May be most of u already know where exactly is Malaysia's Gold Coast. I don't really know for sure why the place is called Gold Coast as it doesn't look like GC Surfers Paradise at all...;) Anyway, this place is really a perfect weekend getaway with family and friends. It is very near to Kuala Lumpur and u can reach the place in less than an hour or so, depending on the traffic. In addition, the price is affordable and u can hve lotsa fun especially with the kids!

I bought the promo ticket to GC Morib at Matta Fair. It cost me RM198 per family which consisted of a huge double bed room facing the sea, 4 tickets to the water park, 2 buffet breakfast and 2 buffet dinner.  U can even go on a school holiday with no extra charge but it must be on weekdays only. Weekdays are from Sunday to Thursday.  I think it is a cheap bargain! Anyway, the accommodation was super fine to me! The room was huge. Boleh golek2 dalam tu. It has a jacuzzi which reminded me of Tiki Village in Surfers Paradise (hmmm..that's a significant similarity!)

We arrived about 3 in the afternoon. Quite late actually coz we had things to settle in the morning. I think it's better to come early coz u can even go to the beach later on.

Just arrived!

We checked in...

The check in counter.
After checked in, we went out for a while to the food court nearby (about 4km)... Makan seafood ler... Anyway, What's the specialty here in Morib?

Apakah itu? Ha...inilah sotong bakar. Sedap...
RM10 per plate. Ada 2 saiz rasanya...Kecik dan besar.
This one yg besar.
One thing about Morib ni....bnyak sangat lalat la... apa lagik kalau mkn sotong ni...lagikla mengundang mereka datang...U can ask for some candles from the makcik kedai... but the candles don't help much.... the flies are still happily partying at your table, though...ha..ha...

Come...let's check out the room, shall we....:)

Snapping the photo...
The water park is not as large as Tiara's n I liked it
because I could easily locate Farah. Kalau tidak...
asik hilang saje si kenit tu...

Other water attractions
Float ni dlm rm10 rasanya...
If u dont have the entrance tix, u can buy it separately.
Of course package price is a real bargain
compared to buying individual tix.
At night, we dined at the hotel as the voucher consisted of buffet dinner for 2 pax. I paid extra RM15 per child for the buffet. The buffet dinner was not bad... With the price, I was very satisfied with the selection. They also refilled the food when it was almost empty.

Lepas makan sampai buntang, kami pon jalan2 kat luar ambik udara pantai...
























Buffet breakfast pon not bad...Oklah lagi dari Hotel Seri Msia. One tip for visitors, if u see that the cafe is full during brekafast, the waiter at the cafe entrance will ask u to go to the adjacent building for breakfast. Don't hesitate, just go.. There will be less people there and it's more comfortable. Makanan yg disediakan sama aja... Bilik breakfast 2 akan dibuka bila ada ramai guest check in the night before.

Kat Morib ni, besides the sea, it is also famous for its kerepek...So, before we left Morib, we stopped by at kerepek house to buy some tidbits for me n my mum back home. P/s: the sambal goreng kering was very delicious. Rugi x belik lebih...

Ada bnyk rak yg kosong...lepas raya kot..bnyk stok dah habis

A few kilometres from GC Morib ni...we saw RPP Morib. Cantik..perhaps next time we can check in here but it's not that easy to book one though...
