It has been a great day, just went to Malacca to have a look at our apartment there, did some maintenance and stayed a night... Met the CEO of the Management team, had a long talk about tourism and the hospitality industries...... He is from Kuantan, my home town but from his youth had being living in Australia... It all started when he was sent to Perth, Australia to study on a government scholarship...... He completed his study in accountancy but did not return, instead he married an Australian girl and settled in Sydney.... Now He is back.... First he tried his fortune in Kuantan..... After the trial and error of the business world He eventually struck gold when he venture into real estate.... With this success he venture on and now took over the management of the Merak Mutiara Beach Resort, a condo cum hotel for holiday makers....... I am indeed happy that this holiday resort of back after almost in a delirium...... I hope this new management could bring back this resort to it fomer glory...... The first part of the journey to Malacca, the highway part was indeed pleasant but as we took the country road via Alor Gajah.... It started to rain and with the Construction all the way.... part of the road became muddy and I had to drive slowly.... When this part of the road is completely upgraded it would surely be a great drive from highway to the resort at Pantai Putri.... It was known as Pantai Kundor but has since be change to a new name Pantai Putri..... A more appropriate name for such a nice place along the beach....Translate into English Pantai Putri means Princes Beach...... The resort is situated beside the beach and a very ideal place for a family getaway on the weekend as it has great condo facilities and swimming pool both for the adult and the children.... It is situated far away from the hassle of the city and as such it would make a peaceful holiday atmosphere especially those from cities..... This holiday resort was once know as the Mutiara Malacca Beach Resort and now it name has being change to Merak Malacca Beach Resort...... So the next time you are looking for some place to spend your weekend...I would suggest this resort.... It worth a try..... I know for I have a condo there and enjoy staying there whenever I am in Malacca.... Have a nice day.
