me and my buddy beside the durian tree..tralalalallalalala

lets take a chilly dip. believe it this is in front of the dining hall.

after a 20 minutes jungle trekking we came upon the fountaion of youth..yeay..min you the life jacket is for your own safety since the river current can be pretty strong

before we jump into the river lets take a photo. My buddy did the leap of faith from the wooden platform. Me..ahha I am afraid of height but I did climb onto the platform look down and promptly  went down the stairs again.I did try hahaha

A cuppa of hot  coffee by the riverside,  serenade by the sound of rushing water and the serenity of the scenery. Tanah Aina served awesome coffee, the real mccoy too. I love it.

After the morning walk and the gediks photo session up the hill, we come down to breakfast. aghhhhhh..ubi rebus with sambal sardin on chilly morning. man I am in ehaven at that moment.

view of the patio from inside the honeymoon suite Pegaga. No aircond only fan, but who needs one its absolutely cool by the river here.

which way are we going again?

relaxing at the  stircase which leads directly into the stream infront of the chalet. However the water is murky since the rain has just stopped. It is not advisable to get into the water after rain since the current can be strong.
 
we each got 3 pillows..pillow fight anybody?
 
Finally we got reception up here.  Phone reception is intermittent here. And there is not TV in the room.. If you need your fix of  Tv please bring along your laptop or you can join them at the big hall for movie screening
 

I am green as is the eco-friendly tanah aina is.

Infront of Pegaga,,its like living a dream.

 
 

its so hard to say goodbye, but I will be back again...
