Little girl and I traveled to Desaru with our family for a weekend vacation, 2D1N at Desaru. This is our first-time to Desaru. We do not expect a lot in this trip because it’s a “family weekend” trip after all and not our usual traveling exploration trip.

The Plan

The only plan that I actually planned of was to relax at the beach or at the swimming pool and to eat some delicious foods in Malaysia. After an hour of waiting, we finally got out of the Malaysia’s custom and got into our cousin’s car later.

Desaru Fruit Farm

Desaru Fruit Farm has so much to offer than only a fruit farm visitation. Occupying an area of 100 acres planted with more than 100 varieties of tropical fruits, the farm is awarded many times by tourism. We did not spend a lot of time there and we simply bought a few fresh fruits for our desserts later.

End of Day One

We will be making our back to Singapore tomorrow and time seems to fly by so quickly that we have not explored the resort yet! However, it has been a long day for every one of us and it’s time for a good night sleep.

Stay tuned for our next post.
