    The quest to find better driving roads

    Feeling a little cooped up with work a couple of weekends ago, I felt the need for a drive to reward myself after all the slogging. Knowing that Singapore has no ideal road for driving, I chose to head up North like many other car enthusiasts searching for some decent asphalt. After a call and a quick discussion with a mate, we made our way towards Desaru. Not knowing where to stop for good breakfast after using the Second Link, we stopped at some random coffee shop for some tim sum. Nothing fantastic to be honest. It was not long before we got on highway E22. Long and straight road equals huge urge to step on it. Okay, this was shot by my passenger when it was going downhill and I did not notice the excess pressure on the throttle. There was some no speeding involved. At higher speeds, the Ignis Sport remained surprisingly stable with no hint of floating. However, the close-ratio gearbox meant that the engine could never really settle down. The lowered suspension coupled with the car's short wheelbase also meant that it was not the best cross-country machine to be in. While not apparent on our smooth local roads, Malaysia's bumpy roads sure bounced me around in the Recaros quite a bit. A good example of badly paved roads. Notice the part where the road joins the bridge? I misjudged and went over it at high speed and oh my, I swear i had some air time! Totally did not expect that and I was definitely more cautious after this. Meanwhile, the F30 BMW 320i driven by my buddy looked like it was soaking up all the undulations very well. I did wish I was driving that instead. The iconic suspension bridge of highway E22. Pretty amazing to me. A quick turn into 90 and 92 brought us to The Pulai Desaru Beach Resort where we took a break. Chose not to nap despite the hammock looking very tempting. Not the calmest of seas but safe enough to play in. Soon we were on the move towards Sungai Rengit area to have some seafood lunch. This was where the Ignis Sport shined. Free of traffic, I soon found myself going at a decent pace. On these small roads with some blind corners, I was able to push hard as the steering fed vital information to me. Gearbox ensured the engine was kept on the boil. Stopped by the last part of road 90 for some photos... Pretty scenic actually.. Alright, I admit I was damn hungry and food photography was totally forgotten. Sorry people. Food was tasty enough for the price but nothing much to shout about. With nothing much else to explore around the area, we headed home. And now slightly familiar with roads on the return journey, let's just say I had even more fun going back!
  2. Will be gg on Jan. Would like to ask all Is drastic safe for our car to park. Cause scare later car lost

    Desaru Fruit Farm

    Hi was at the malaysia tourism fair yesterday and came across a booth promoting a tour to Desaru Fruit Farm and it sounds interesting. So before I make any booking just wondering if any forumer had gone on the tour and what is your comment ? Should my family of four go on a 2D/1N or 3D/2N tour ? Lastly they are charging $175 for a 2D/1N tour is it worth while ?

Or maybe suggest different dates? We can go on fri early & back sat evening or maybe weekdays sud b much better. Main intention is to chill & enjoy a nice drive with cheap & good food.

  15. We are planning for a 2 nite stay at Desaru in March. Heard that some are pretty rundown and cleanliness are very bad. Any recommendation for a nice and clean resort in Desaru with some seasports and go-kart and ATV? Any suggestions will be very much appreciated.
  16. Hi, I am planning to drive over tomorrow. Anyone has been there before? What are the charges like? Their website not very user friendly... Thanks in advance
  17. I am planning a day trip to Desaru, mainly to visit the fruit farm. I have the following questions which I hope forumers can help me with, especially those who have been there and done that: a. Time needed to tour fruit farm (I am thinking of allocating 3 hours max and spending 2 hours in the afternoon at the Kota Tinggi waterfalls) b. Worth detouring to Sungai Rengit for lunch or dinner? c. Recommended breakfast places enroute to Desaru (not in JB, if possible) d. Can we get good durians at the fruit farm? e. Any durian farms around Desaru worth visiting? f. Best beaches to visit in Desaru, preferably with good and clean waters like those found in Terengganu. Any comments would be appreciated, planning the itinerary now.
  18. Yep! Seems like they got a surplus of rooms over the May Day weekend. In contrast, Bintan Resort is fully booked out. Those who have no plans can go to www.latestays.com for a quick booking. Just did mine for Thu 01 May 2008. MYR305 for 01 May and MYR269 for 02 May. Desaru good for a 2D1N stay. I wouldn't suggest 3D2N. Forgot to add. Come tomorrow at 12mn, cannot book 01 May anymore. Might be worth a try but no guarantees.
