Finally, it's Friday. It's a special Friday for all of us, as we were going to spend our 3 days 2 nights holiday in Hard Rock Hotel Penang. I had packed all stuff the night before that we could set off as early as possible. Not bad, we managed to set off at 9.30am, half an hour later than planned only. :)
As usual, Brother Bear was very cool during car trip and Sister Bear was the one who kept asking, 'are we arriving yet' and that's not our very favorite question from her, as she would ask almost every 10 to 20 minutes that sometimes she did make us lose our patience. :)
We had 2 stops along the way, first stop was a rest area not far after we passed by Kuala Kangsar. This rest area is more for sight seeing which we could see the jungle area of the mountain and there was no toilet, hence the 2nd stop at Sg. Perak Rest & Relax Area - we all needed toilet break. To our surprise, this rest stop is big, clean and comes with good facilities, such as toilet cubicle catering for mom with a tot and a baby. It has adult potty as well as child potty and there is a baby seat in case mom needs to have her hands free. I would think that the toilet is reasonably clean.
It has a baby room for nappy change which comes with hot and cold water supply too. It also has a small couch for mom who wish to breastfeed her baby in private. Oh yes, power points are available just outside the toilet if you need to charge your phone's battery. Cool huh? :)
It has a small playground for kids too.
There are some fruits stalls selling local fruits and some cut fruits. Food stalls are still operating even though it's Ramadhan. Overall, a great place which all drivers/travellers will appreciate. :)
