Time Capsule Retreat @Sungai Lembing, Pahang

Time Capsule Retreat @Sungai Lembing, Pahang
After the thrilling Bentong day trip, Chency and I were still overjoy and indulging in the mood of holiday. We were both anticipating for another short summer vacation on our own. Out of random, we have decided to visit Time Capsule Retreat at Sungai Lembing, Pahang. We hope to have some relaxing time spent there, away from the urban city and of course some plans for video shooting in the serenity of nature.

Woke up at 7.30am and we have make move around 10pm from Petaling Jaya. The journey took us around 3 to 4 hours, and we WAZEd throughout the whole journey. Just search for "Time Capsule Retreat" and you will get there accurately!
White Cottage
It was a really hot sunny day! Well, it's Malaysia.
Unlike the hotel, there's no reception desk but there's a 'kakak' to help out, showing us the room and guiding us with places to visit.
This is one of the "White Cottage" which suits 2 to 4 persons to stay over.
There is basic BBQ facility and you guys might have some BBQ for dinner. Remember to bring your own food LOL.

The white cottage has a huge living hall, so clean and much like a comfort home with television. All the family members can gather around, sitting on the wooden chair, chit chatting throughout the night, with the accompany of the sound of nature.
Here's a room with two queen size beds.
Capsules
Walking down a trail, we were brought to the '"Capsule" stay. There were tables and chairs at the center of the capsules, which I don't it was a good place to sort of 'feel the sun'.
There are actually two types of capsules, with a little different from the interior design, yet both comes with the sky view hole, with air conditioners and in cylinder tube kind of shape.
Capsule 1
Capsule 1 comes with the renown insta-worthy transparent glass door and concrete wall, without window.
No worry, you're not gonna expose your personal life through the glass door, there's a white drape curtain!


Capsule 2
Capsule 2 comes with no glass door but a stunning wide window view, with a pair of matching blue window.
This was the room where both of us stayed over. I was quite surprise as it wasn't that spacious like what I thought. Do bear in mind not to bring huge luggage.
It was so freaking cold sleeping in such a tube with full air conditioning.
For capsules, we don't have our own bathroom but a shared one.
I have read through a few travel blog and none of them mention about the bathroom, which was my very first concern.
Here I shared a picture of it. It was way better than what I've imagined right before the trip. It was so clean and every bathroom equipped with water heater. I felt really comfortable showering in the bathroom. It was really hygienic.
Parallel
Beside the capsules and cottage, there's a hidden paved lane to the "Parallel Aurora", which was actually a nicely designed container room, with large glass panel windows.
I wonder, there was a round bath tub outside the container. hmm...
#BFFgoals


Beside filming and shooting in the capsule for the damn whole day, we have visited the town as well. Suggest not to go on normal weak day or non-peak season LOL. There was very little shops operating, I can tell, not more than 5? We have not much choices for food and restaurants.
Nasi Ayam Dara
We have hunted for the famous Nasi Ayam Dara for dinner, located opposite Persatuan Hainan Sungai Lembing. The operation hour is usually after 4pm, if not mistaken.


Rainbow Waterfall
We have actually participated in some activities the next day, which was a tour at Rainbow Water Fall at RM50 each. 'Kakak' helped us to contact the person-in-charge and we were all requested to fill up a form with personal details before the tour. We would rather pay to stay safe instead of getting up the rainbow fall our self :(
We were all requested to gather at 6.30 am and our journey to the water fall started after the breakfast in town. The real excitement started when we were all brought up to the hill with a 4x4 four wheel truck. The whole drive journey as if both of us was situated in the movie 'Fast and Furious'. It was real cooling as the wind blew and with the speed of the truck.
We were dropped at each station, to enjoy every single view of the sunrise. 
After crossing the river with slippery stones and hiking for about 30 minutes, we have finally arrived the waterfall. We were served with maggie cup and hot milo at the waterfall, like an award for the efforts made LOL. (Included in in the package of Rainbow Waterfall Tour)
We have actually waited for 2 and half hour for the appearance of rainbow. The rainbow only lasted for less than 20 minutes. 
I realized that the whole journey reflect what's in our life. The noble moment lasted only few minutes, but we have actually spent more than ten years behind to achieve what we have dreamt of and wanted. 
"Nothing comes easy, we have to be patience, overcome each and every obstacles, work all out. "

There were actually a number of activities beside the Rainbow Waterfall Tour, like visiting the Museum, hiking the Panorama Hill and visiting the hanging bridge. Just contact the kakak for any inquiries.

  3. i was there too! going again this august for a longer stay and for both trips i'm using the cottage room as i prefer the bathroom inside. my first trip 2days 1night was rather a "redah" trip not knowing anything and was alone. now dah tahu i need at least 3 days 2 nights to fully explore, i'm gonna go to rainbow waterfall again, and also visit the museums, hike panorama hill and visit the shops as previously tak sempat try the nasi kukus.
