Kembara #dekatje: Kampung Style Breakfast at Kalumpang Resorts and Training Centre

Morning at Kalumpang Resort and Training Centre seems to be a big thing for everyone. You can see guests jogging around or frolicking in the river for an early morning swim as early as 7am over here.

It must be the green environment that makes people want to kick start their morning in such an active way. One thing for sure, it is very refreshing to be able to workout so close to nature and breathe in fresh air instead of working out in a gym that reek with sweaty smell.

Kembara #dekatje: BBQ Dinner and Karaoke Session at Kalumpang Resort and Training Centre

Kalumpang Resorts and Training Centre is eerily quiet at night. The only sound that I could hear from my riverside chalet when the night falls is just the sound of the river stream. It can be quite scary for some, especially those who came from the city and used to the hustle and bustle of it.

The view at Kalumpang Resort and Training Centre at night. Gravely silent, but provides so much solitude and serenity. Just the thing that I want in a getaway.

 photo 20151025_210044_LLS_zpsvsksnhnn.jpg

But during our stay, the silence of the night was broken with a small gathering to celebrate our visit. Our host literally cooks up a BBQ dinner in our honour.

Freshly caught fish on the grill. Looks good, don’t they?

Dinner was served. There’s corn on cobs, roasted chicken, grilled fish, fried rice and coleslaw.

 photo 20151025_211054_zpscfrr8p72.jpg

My humble BBQ dinner. Sorry for the awful plating. I was thinking with my stomach.

 photo 20151025_210937_zpszatdjq2t.jpg

I don’t usually like fishes. Not a fan of small bones and their fishy smell but it was so fresh and naturally sweet that I had a few helpings of it. I simply couldn’t help myself.

 photo 20151025_215925_zpszikj9o9p.jpg

After dinner, it’s happy hour with Tourism Malaysia Selangor. There are games, lucky draw and of course, karaoke session. Yes. Despite it being in the jungle, Kalumpang Resort and Training Centre does have karaoke facilities set up at the hut by the river. Rate is charged per hour and for those hosting training over here may request for this service too.

Karaoke session, featuring Razly of Flywinds Holidays and Nor Affendi of Tourism Malaysia Selangor. Croaking songs that could possibly awaken the dead. I think none of us have any talent to be a vocalist. We sang pretty much offkey and the pitching was horrible. But, that does not matter. We were not there for singing competition, and we did have a lot of fun bonding time together.

Below is the pricing for karaoke session in Kalumpang Resort and Training Centre, should you are interested to host any training, function or events here:

Karaoke + Technician – RM550/3 hour
Karaoke + Technician (Coffee House / Canopy) – RM400/3 hour
BBQ hut + 2 packs of charcoal- RM50

Kembara #dekatje: Teatime at Kalumpang Resorts and Training Centre

Feeling famished after our tubing activities, we headed for some tummy warming tea and snacks. Again, it was served the traditional way. Everything was spread on the floor, where everyone sit together and enjoy the meal with our hands.

 photo DSCN7823_zpsqppsvx0q_edit_1447214835272_zpstob0w7pp.jpg

Here’s us. Enjoying teatime together. With our still wet clothing. 😛 Yes. All of us were practically still dripping wet from our water actuvities when we had our teatime snack at the hut.

 photo DSCN7822_zpspeuo8ddd_edit_1447257165235_zpsfkem1rxk.jpg

Our wet clothing did not diminish our appetite though. Tea time snacks that comes in the form of mango glutinuous rice, bubur cha cha, salted fish, boiled tapioca, freshly plucked passionfruit and freshly brewed black coffee were polished off almost immediately.

Who says you got to be all dressed up to the nines to enjoy hi tea? We did it in our wet clothings and still enjoyed everything to bits.

Kembara #dekatje: River Tubing at Kalumpang Resorts and Training Centre

I have a confession to make. I’m an adrenaline junkie. I love doing exhilarating things that makes my heart beat wildly and I would always jump at the opportunity of doing extreme sports. I discovered with pleasure that Kalumpang Resort and Training Centre is a place that offers such things.

One of the exhilarating, adrenaline pumping thing that we did during our stay at Kalumpang Resort and Training Centre was river tubing. Tubing is a recreational activity where an individual rides on top of an inner tube, either on water, snow, or through the air. One could easily mistake that it’s a relaxing thing, but it’s definitely not. It was far from a cruise along the river. It was actually a bumpy ride. I don’t really have much pictures of our tubing activity as it was really a rough ride and I could barely hold the camera throughout the bumps but managed to capture some of the moments with my waterproof, shockproof Nikon Coolpix S33. Here’s sharing the moments with you. Yes. My son tagged along too, and I’m so proud of him.

 photo DSCN7770_zpspe67amsu.jpg

First, we were given a tube, a helmet and a lifejackets to wear. And then, our instructor guided us upstream where the river flows from top to bottom.

 photo DSCN7775_zpsjoh8x8sr.jpg

Helmets and lifejackets is absolutely necessary to avoid any unwanted injuries and incidents as the river flows really fast and it was really deep too. There are chances of you being thrown off from the tube, even when you hold onto it tightly.

 photo DSCN7776_zps0bhjf12o.jpg

See what I mean? Take a close look on this picture. Focus on the guy who is wearing yellow shirt. He is our tourism officer from Tourism Malaysia Selangor, Fendi.

 photo DSCN7777_zpsg04brded.jpg

This is not the first time he went tubing and yet he still get thrown off from his tube.

 photo DSCN7778_zps3amhjxq1.jpg

It may look easy, but it’s pretty tough.

 photo DSCN7784_zpskdpspkzl.jpg

But all is good. There are rope lines for you to cling to if the ride is too fast for you.

 photo DSCN7786_zpsy1ge0fq9.jpg

Many opt to cling to the rope.

 photo DSCN7797_zpsh24dr1c3.jpg

 photo DSCN7800_zpso2igpr3r.jpg

If you are wondering whether it is safe or not, don’t worry. There are marshalls stationed at each points, and they keep a really good eye on you. You’re definitely in good hands.

 photo DSCN7802_zps0arv8wfu.jpg

If my son who is just 10 years old can do it, you got no excuse not to do it. It’s all about attitude and taking challenges with a pinch of salt.

 photo DSCN7806_zpssakaugoj.jpg

Blogger friend Hanny Abdullah giving us her victory pose. See the chalet behind? That’s where my family stays for the weekend. Nice, isn’t it? Our chalet was just by the riverside.

Let’s hear what my co-host of Kembara #dekatje travelogue Kos Serani have to say. Video edit by my husband Garfield and son AlienGoTravel.

The aftermath.

 photo DSCN7829_zpsthhldp0q.jpg

We managed to go for two rounds of river tubing but it was getting dark, so instead of going for the third, we called it a day and just frolick in the river instead.

And what’s Tourism Malaysia Selangor trip without having picnic in the river?

 photo 20151025_154706_zps2jg4ihpa.jpg

We did it in Eco Murai Rimba at Batang Kali, and we did it again at Kalumpang Resort and Training Centre. It’s our trademark. A must do thing when we ventured to any rivers in Malaysia.

One for the album. A killer modeling pose for #selfiewefieTMSel before we dragged our shrivelled self to the hut where our host has graciously prepared teatime snacks for us.

Kembara #dekatje: Kampung Style Lunch at Kalumpang Resort and Training Centre

It was a busy and tiring morning after our coverage for Kalumpang Rainforest Jungle Run. Everyone was famished and upon arrival and checking in to Kalumpang Resort and Training Centre, our host graciously ushered for lunch.

 photo 20151025_125511_zpsjww2yfqm_edit_1447236432895_zpsc1br47ja.jpg

Lunch was traditional Malay style where all the dishes were spread out on the floor and we eat our meal communal style with our hands.

 photo 20151025_124446_zpscjblms7v.jpg

The lunch spread was truly amazing and it’s nothing like what you can get in resraurants.

 photo 20151025_124508_zps2mul8sgf.jpg

Assorted freshly plucked ulam-ulaman, salted eggs, salted fish, fried tofu and fried tempeh served in a huge tray. These side dishes are paired with steamed white rice and is absolutely delicious.

 photo 20151025_124551_zps1grtqhco.jpg

A must in every traditional Malay dish, sambal belacan.

 photo 20151025_124527_zpsci1aqfk0.jpg

Fried fish, freshly caught from the river.

 photo 20151025_124546_zpsedlcvlmc.jpg

Grilled fish wrapped with banana leaf and stuffed with sambal belacan. I usually detest fish, but this dish is to die for and please don’t ask how many helping I had. The amount was not very ladylike. 😛 They served my favourite tumeric fried chicken too but I attacked this with fervour instead.

 photo 20151025_124523_zpsfspmrcrr.jpg

And last but not least, this delicious Papaya soup. It’s the chef’s specialty and was naturally sweet. This soup is said to have healing properties and it is believed that the soup helps in combating sore throat and reducing excessive body heat.

We washed off our lunch with young coconut juice before heading to the next thing on our itinerary; swimming in the river and tubing.

Kembara #dekatje: Riverside Chalet at Kalumpang Resort and Training Centre

As I mentioned in my previous post where I summarized my family’s retreat at Kalumpang Resort and Training Centre with our friends from Tourism Malaysia Selangor, the place is an agro tourism resort that was built in the orchards on land covering 17 acres and is a haven for those who would love to get close to nature.

Walking towards the entrance, guests will be greeted by the resident parrot, who amazingly doubled as a ‘receptionist’ for the souvenir shop.

 photo IMG_9421_zpspblzubho.jpg

And a cheeky monkey who’d do anything for you to get you to release him from the cage during his non play time.

 photo IMG_9415_zpsmgfarobc.jpg

There is a river located deep inside the resort, and one does not necessarily have to be a guest of the resort to enjoy the river activities or a relaxing riverside picnic. The place is accessible to public and daily pass can be obtained at the reception house outside for RM10 per adult and RM5 per child.

 photo 20151026_120110_zpsixooq0l0.jpg

Kalumpang Resort and Training Centre has more than 70 units of chalets built with both natural and modern elements. Apart from that, there are hostels for visitors who came in groups. For those who are more adventurous. campsites with tents are available for rent. Sleeping bags is however not included.

It was about 8 minutes walk away from the entrance of the resort.

 photo 20151025_145447_zpshnlz78ao.jpg

By luck or chance, the room allocated to my family happens to be just by the riverside, so we have quite a great view from our room.

Our chalet, with balcony overlooking the river.

 photo IMG_9395_zpsxeeob2a_edit_1447228642983_zpskmseh7vd.jpg

The chalet is meant for couple and is equipped with a sofa and TV at the livingroom and a Queen size bed at the bedroom.

 photo 20151025_154710_zpsfvy9qp1b.jpg

Queen size bed. The bedroom is equipped with air conditioner, which we did not use at all throughout the duration of our stay as the air was already cold and refreshing and is almost freezing at night.

 photo IMG_9402_zpsziv4lfm_edit_1447228992184_zpsqhzfscnl.jpg

There is bathroom ensuite for your convenience, but as the place’s concept is kinda back to nature, there is no hot water shower installed. Water sources is from the mountain, so it is really refreshing.

While it’s quite embarrassing to admit, but I have to say that although my husband and I have a habit of sharing the shower together whenever we are on trips and we are usually much more interested in the bathroom much more than our bedroom, my husband and I only used the shower twice, as we spent most of our time bathing in the nature; in the river itself with our friends from Tourism Malaysia Selangor. I’m not sure if anyone would approve of that, behaving like some juvenile teenager on the loose and launching water splashing wars, but hey, the water activities here in Kalumpang Resort and Training Centre is a big thing, and the water temperature in the river isn’t terribly cold, and therefore we found the great river is much more fun than our bathroom. 😉

Our chalet was RM200 per night, inclusive of breakfast for two.

Kembara #dekatje: Kalumpang Resorts and Training Centre

Kalumpang, not to be confused with the district in Indonesia and a place in East Malaysia, Kalumpang that my family and I visited last month is a small town in the state of Selangor, Malaysia. It is located in the northern part of the state next to Hulu Bernam which is another small town in the district of Hulu Selangor that serves as a border town of Selangor and Perak.

Secluded, quiet and still quite untouched by the fast paced development and away from the bustling city, one would have never guessed that the town have is much more than just an eerily quiet sleeping town.

Following my family’s adventure with our friends from Tourism Malaysia Selangor for our Kembara #dekatje 2015 project, we ventured deep into Kalumpang to Kalumpang Resorts and Training Centre.

Kalumpang Rainforest Jungle Run 2015

If you are a reader of this blog or my friend on Facebook or Instagram, you would notice that I’ve been exposing AlienGoTravel to the great outdoors. We’ve been up to quite a lot of things and here’s sharing with you one of it.

A couple of weeks back, our friends from Tourism Malaysia Selangor invited me and my boys to witness the Kalumpang Rainforest Jungle Run 2015 with them. Kalumpang Rainforest Jungle Run 2015 is jointly organized by Green Leaf Events and Marketing Services, Kalumpang Resorts and Training Centre, Majlis Daerah Hulu Selangor and sponsored by Sneak Peak Products, Running Malaysia and last but not least, supported by Tourism Malaysia.

Kalumpang Rainforest Jungle Run is a 18km run held annually in Kalumpang and is part of an initiative in conjunction of #DekatJe campaign by Tourism Malaysia to elevate Malaysia as a internationally preferred sports tourism destination.

There is a lot of runs and marathons being organized around in the country. And one would have said that this one is no different than others, but trust me, Kalumpang Rainforest Jungle Run 2015 is the sort of run that will challenge you to get out of your comfort zone, push you to your limits and give you the thrilling satisfaction of being a champion. Unlike regular runs or marathons where the venue is usually the comforting and familiar path in the city or small town, Kalumpang Rainforest Jungle Run 2015 is held in a jungle. Yes. You are reading that right, it’s held in the jungle, where you will have to check-in at multiple different checkpoints before you can head back to the finishing line.

I have never participated in a run or a marathon in my life, and although we were also given the opportunity to participate by the organizer, my family and I opt to just be a spectator as we are well aware of the dire consequences of running without proper training. Although my family and I did not intend to participate in the run, but we’re adrenaline high nevertheless. We arrived at the venue at about 7am with our Visit Malaysia mascot, Bayau. He’s a new addition to our little family, courtesy of Tourism Malaysia, and yes, he’ll be joining us is most of our adventures from now onwards.

 photo 20151025_112807_zpsnsoy9nox.jpg

It was a well organized run. Medics and security officers on duty were spotted at almost all corners of the venue, keeping order and vigilant eyes, and ready to serve.

 photo 20151025_112735_zpspmkpmk77.jpg

Everyone present were adrenaline high. Even the event crews were all hyped up that morning.

Flagging off

 photo 20151025_071353_zpsmxc3k34f.jpg

And look at them go, the runners ran as if their life depends on it.

 photo DSCN7839_zpsk72uguyc.jpg

So what did we do after flagging off? Well, my family and I rode ahead on a 4wd to designated checkpoints with the fabulous people from Tourism Malaysia Selangor and other members of the media. It was one hell of an unexpected ride.

 photo DSCN7840_zpsvtsayhsi.jpg

We thought the path to each checkpoints was easy but all of us had quite a shock when the engine started revving and the 4wd roughly pave ways through the jungle to reach the checkpoints before the runners. I seriously can’t imagine what the runners had to endure to get to each checkpoints.

 photo 20151025_085839_zpsjj47wn6b.jpg

Here’s a picture taken at one of the checkpoints with our ride. They look pretty cool, don’t they?

Fast forward a couple of hours after chasing the runners in the jungle with our 4wd, we headed to the finishing line, just in time to see then starting to arrive.

Prize giving was done at approximately 1pm before the crowd was dispersed and we were ushered for our crib for the night at Kalumpang Resort and Training Centre.

I thought my adventure for the week ended with our 4wd ride, but I was wrong. Little did we know that more exhilirating surprises was practically waiting for us at the resort. I’ll be sharing about our experience there, but until then, take care. :) To find out more about Kalumpang Rainforest Jungle Run 2015, simply Google it or search for the hashtag #kalumpangjunglerun2015 and #kalumpangresort.
