Angry Birds Activity Park Johor

Once a kid, forever a kid. #eh

Johor is synonym to theme parks, namely Legoland and Sanrio Hello Kitty Town but guess what… I just found there is and additional member to the family (and many to come of course) - Angry Birds Activity Park.

If you have heard of Jump Street and Kizsports & Gym (or perhaps Megakidz), then you can easily imagine this 2 combine… Yup! An indoor theme park for kids and adult that offers Angry Birds activities/game, from slacklining to trampoline and from play area to maze space. A place that caters to all age group. Simply perfect (think about it parents, you can drop you kids here [and hubby too] and continue shopping at peace+ease). Oh yah! Did I tell you that it is located in a mall. Perfect to the ‘T’ huh! Whomever that built this must be a woman. Ahaks.

Strangely I was looking forward to this place, I guess because the curiosity in me lah kot – wanting to know how they’ll carry the theme through and through, yet keeping my expectation low – not wanting to be disappointed. Lo and behold, it was rather good. We all had great fun until we were told we only have 30mins to experience the whole place (eyes rolling). Having said that, we manage to squeeze that little time we have and have blast. Located in JBCC Mall in Johor Bharu, one can easily spend 2-3hours having fun (and a little quality bonding time too). In fact, I also think it's a great place to organise a gathering or parties. And guess what, it comes with a cool welcome dance and an Angry Birds mascot as well… I think they should have a similar out in Kuala Lumpur too lah, like seriously.

For those curious few, below are some of their activity/game.

Young kids/Toddlers
Sand Castle Ball, Piggy Shooting Gallery, Spinning Time Machine and Captain Black Birds Ship.

GO! #Kart, Lazer Maze Spaceship, Classic Tower Play, Red Bird Sona and Anti-Gravity #Trampolines.

Like any other indoor park, socks as given (red coloured socks to be precise, with an Angry Birds on it (comei giler) and racks for shoes, there are facilitators managing each activity; guiding us on how to go about. I would like to also add that I really like the opening dance (teringat zaman clubbing dulu #eh), kudos to the team for choreographing the dance, it certainly builds up the mood and momentum for us to enjoy the activities inside.

Trained first aid personnel are on standby, for immediate assistance, guest are required to notify our ANGRY BIRDS Flock Members. I was made to understand that Complimentary wheelchairs are also available upon request at the Front Desk.

10.00am to 10.00pm daily

SukaSucre Sweet Table by Dato’ Fazly Yaakob

I’ve heard of Dessert Table, often placed at birthday parties, weddings and any kind of celebration but Sweet Table?!? Hemmm…. My curiosity got the best in me. To top it off, it is by Dato’ Fazly Yaakob, the singer, actor and now celebrity chef.

Not sure of what to expect, I head to SukaSucre located in Wisma RYU in Cheras, Kuala Lumpur. White base d├ęcor with a touch of earth tones welcomes guest from all walks of life, from toddler to food connoisseur, all came to sample the food and see for themselves the Sweet Table art by his truly. And so did us.

We were prep that it is themed as ‘From Rembau to Paris’, ‘dimana Rembanya dan dimana Paris nya’ was the first thing that came to my mind (and I bet to all those attended as well).

‘Rembau’ basically reflected in the banana fritters, banana snack (cokodok pisang) palm sugar and ice cream stick (ais krim potong); local delicacy (Dato’ Fazly Yaakob’s hometown to be precise) and ‘Paris’ are macaroons, caramel, chocolate, red velvet and etc. And the concept was similar to shell-out, eating with bare hand (make sure it is clean first lah).

Some of the unique menu available are Pasta Daging Lerai Ala Cendawan Kukur, Pasta Daging Salai Lemak Cili Api, Kerabu French Toast, Butterscotch Latte, Corn Teh Tarik dan Green Tea Honey. I have to admit I fell in love with Corn Teh Tarik.

SukaSucre Bistro

Jom Visit Kuala Lumpur lah!

If you are ever unsure of what to do or where to visit in KLCC, you can either drop by at Aquaria and meet friendly sea creature or take a walk at the Skybridge, connecting Petronas Tower 1 to Tower 2 (the view is breathtaking, you won’t regret it). Whatever it is, you will not regret it.

#TravelTips 1 : Aside from the KLCC Skybridge and Aquaria (both located in the building), you can also visit the Petrosains which is located inside the Suria KLCC Mall itself as well as the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) at the Dewan Filharmonik Petronas.

#TravelTips 2 : There are also Petronas Gallery located inside the mall.

All you animal lovers and city dwellers, if you ran out of ideas on where to go (especially those with kids), head over to Aquaria KLCC and meet 5,000 different exhibits of aquatic and land-bound creatures. And my personal favourite will be the Lion Fish, Jelly Fish (love to see how they glide) and Puffer Fish (do you know I have eaten one before when I was in Japan). Best experience would be when I walk into the walkalator tunnel with shark and manta ray swimming across.

Some of the highlights in Aquaria are the Amazing Rocky Shore touch pool, Red-Bellied Piranha exhibition (this is the only place in Malaysia granted permission to see one), Rare Sand-Tiger Sharks, the 10 foot long gigantic Arapaima and the gentle Green Sea Turtle. That one activity might thrill our young friends (adults too perhaps) are the feeding of the sharks at Aquatheatre, Flying Rays at the Living Ocean among others.

#TravelTips 3 : Check out the feeding time upon arriving so that you can plan well.

#TravelTips 4 : Check out activities that they have so you can allocate your time accordingly.

In paying tribute to World Ocean Day, KLCC started an awareness campaign called Blue Ocean, Green Action striving to educate the young about the importance of wildlife, the environment and its relationship with people.

#TravelTips 5 : It is important to educate the young ones on our environment, get the Aquaria team to explain more.
