Yesterday late morning, me and my dad made a short lunch trip to Janda Baik. Remember the place? I went there earlier this year with my pal, Moses (See below for earlier postings). It was a gentle drive on a hot day, so no hurry to get anywhere on time. The road was not too heavy with traffic because it was not a long weekend, and in less than forty minutes we were disembarking at the small town of Bukit Tinggi, Pahang, which sat at the foothill of Janda Baik.
As it turned out, it was not Kak Dah's house. But the kindly gentlemen who lived there with his wife (who coincidentally was also named Zaidah) tried to help us. Haji Aziz (for that is his name) made a few phone calls and found out that Kak Dah is not staying here, but her brother is. Alas, both her mother and father, who were my parents' good friends, have both passed away. Haji Aziz gave us directions to Kak Dah's house but we couldn't find it. Why didn't I take his number? But never mind, because we made a new friend in Janda Baik. Which is always a happy ending for a day's outing however way you look at it.
Thank you for keeping me company, sunshine.

Comfort: From all the feedback that i have gotten from my team-members. Everyone truly enjoyed their stay at the Saujana Janda Baik.
Cleanliness: Cleanliness was awesome. It kinda shocked us all at how clean everything was.The standard was why in the cleanliness.
Facilities: We did not use the barbecue pit. However, im glad all the fan and there were enough electrical plugs around for us to use for ALL our electrical purposes (toaster/grill/steamboat/ricecooker/etc).
Effectiveness: Um, we were lucky enough to have met En.Ahmad Senior, your mum, sister and wife. The welcome was awesome. The only problem we had during the stay was a small um.. misunderstanding/miscommunication. We had inform En.Ramaly, when he was cleaning the villa when we arrive that we would like to have 2 tents and was informed they will put it up soon. As evening was coming to an end, and the tents were not up, we called at 6.15-6.45pm. I was met with a rather annoyed reply and the line was abruptly disconnect. About 15-20mins later, he came and put up the tent. Other than that it was ok!
Friendliness: Your and your family were awesome, SO was Mr.Ramaly and wife.
Catering: Although it was last minute, i was truly happy that En.Izzat agreed to cook for our batch of 20 pax. However, for RM15/pax the food was just ok. What we got for the meal was Fried rice , Fried Mee, Ayam masak merah, Ikan masak kicap, sayur campur, orange cut fruit, teh tarik and orange cordial. The orange wasnt as fresh and the cordial was flavourless. =). For an order for 20 pax, what came was enough for about 12-15 pax..=). But we were pretty appreciative that En.izzat took our order although it was last minute.
Team-building/Activities: It was something that everyone was thinking would be just OK. However, it took everyone by surprise how much fun it was. It was over expectation, and that is thanks to you. At the same time, it gave me good feeling to know all that was planned turned out awesome.
With that I have proud of the weekend. As with the good job of the place, organizer , the planning and hardwork from my team. It was a great success!!
With that we would like to thank you.
And May Allah bless you and your family always .
Btw, Everyone raved about the cookie [Siraj's CHoC] =)
