I Saw An UFO On The Way To Lake Kenyir!

Posted by : foongpc | Wednesday, December 9, 2009 | Published in


Yes I did! And no one would believe that I saw an UFO, not even my blogger friend and travel partner I think! Time to call Agent Scully and Mulder I guess.

After landing at the airport in Kuala Terengganu, we took a cab to Tasik Kenyir. It was about an hour's journey and it cost us RM90. I thought that's a little pricey but it's OK.

I half expected to see flood waters as I had heard about news of flooding in Kuala Terengganu but the cab driver told us the flood would not affect us. Boy, was I glad to hear that! I would not want to be trapped in the flood waters during my holidays!

Anyway, it was quite sunny that day. The skies were blue and there were big white clouds. If you are a regular reader of my blog, you would know that I love to gaze at clouds.

And there I was in the cab, enjoying myself looking at those clouds while my friend chit chatted with the cab driver, when suddenly I saw it! A unidentified flying object! It was for just a split second. It was round and white in colour and it zoomed past the clouds!

I exclaimed to my travel partner but by the time he looked, it was gone! I searched all over the skies for it but could not find it! Was it an illusion? I could have sworn I spotted an UFO!

Oh well, I was not sure if this was a good sign, but it was certainly a good start to my holidays!

By the way, it would not be my last time seeing an UFO. Yes, I had another encounter of a different kind during my return journey. Let's just say I had my UFO and ate it too! And if you want to know about that, stay tuned yes? : )

Soon, we reached Lake Kenyir Resort and Spa. The signboard says it all.

The entrance to the resort.

Ok, here's a closer shot.

The cab driver stopped us at the guest parking area. This is where you should park your car if you were to drive all the way here.

We were in front of the Welcome Centre. Welcome to Lake Kenyir Resort and Spa!

From here, we took the buggy ride to the resort's lobby.

The short ride from the Welcome Centre to the resort's lobby was awesome! We could see many chalets among tall trees and glimpses of the famous Kenyir Lake.

This is the front entrance of the Resort. (You may click on the photo to see the enlarged version)

Nice pathway leading to the lobby.

The pond in front of the resort.

I could see fishes swimming in the pond. Nice!

The front entrance of the lobby.

The view of the lobby from a different angle.

The resort with its big chandelier-style lamps looked really nice to me. I ascended the steps.

Once we arrived at the lobby desk, we were each given a welcome drink! Cool!

That's me with my welcome drink! Of course my face is blurred to protect my identity - what do you expect? Haha! My travel partner actually suggested I superimpose my panda avatar onto my face but I thought that would look absolutely horrible! LOL!

The drink was pretty tasteless! I was expecting something a bit sweeter. Me and my sweet tooth! Haha!

After checking in, we decided to quickly snap some photos while waiting for the buggy to pick us up and bring us to our room. Oh yes! For your information, our room was not inside this building. We would be staying in a chalet. There were many chalets and they were all scattered around the lake.

This is the view of the lounge overlooking Lake Kenyir.

Nice or not?

View from the edge of the lounge looking down.

Below is the open air restaurant.

And below the restaurant floor is the swimming pool which my blogger friend and travel partner could not stop raving about.

More about the swimming pool in future posts, but for now let's visit the chalet where we stayed if you don't mind. Hmmm, but don't you think this post is a bit too long already?

So OK, do come back for more stories and photos of Lake Kenyir Resort & Spa!

    Looks like a really good to be at! My company wants to go to Terengganu next year... maybe I should suggest to them to go to Lake Kenyir! ^_^.

    UFO eh? Maybe it was a frisbee? Or a man made attraction to make people to go T'ganu D:.

    December 9, 2009 at 9:26 AM
  7. ladyviral said...

    The place looks really nice! Would you mind letting me know how much did it cost in estimation?

  9. TZ said...

    Why UFO didn't kidnap UO from earth to do experiment?

    Who is UO?... hehehe UO is you coz you blur your face and become unidentified for us... you couldn't be UFO coz you can't fly without "Now everyone can fly"... blek~

    *UO = Unidentified Object
    *UFO = Unidentified Flying Object
    *Now everyone can fly = AirAsia

    Foong, I believe you did see a UFO because I saw one too sometime back. You read my post. Now, that makes two of us.

    December 9, 2009 at 10:49 AM
  14. HappySurfer said...

    I didn't expect Lake Kenyir to be so well done up with a resort and stuff. Your pictures are doing justice to the place, Foong. Glad the images could be enlarged for closer viewing. Thanks for that. Will let you tell us you rating. Looking forward to the next installment.

    Wow! such an interesting encounter. Are you sure that it wasn't a PoLong?

    December 9, 2009 at 10:57 AM
  16. HappySurfer said...

    LOL! Now you're in trouble. Your body we got, now the face is wanted. haha..

    No, just kidding. It is the blogger's prerogative to remain anonymous for whatever reason, so do as you see fit, Foong. No sweat. Hairy legs also can.

    Lovely fishes, lovely lake view, lovely resort, lovely greens but absolutely not a lovely alien sipping tasteless welcome drink haha.

    December 9, 2009 at 12:00 PM
  18. Bravebear said...

    Perhaps the aliens built a base somewhere near Kenyir... LOL!

  34. Borneo Falcon said...

    I believe there are extraterrestrial being out there. I believe they got connection with Atlantis, Mayan Civilization, Pyramid, Stonehenge and etc.

    Anyway, the resort is really a beautiful place. Must see it with my own eyes next time

    December 9, 2009 at 5:47 PM
  35. foongpc said...

    monica, maybe it's an illusion, but I really think I saw an UFO! Too bad it moved too fast for me to capture on my camera!

    Yes, the resort is really beautiful! : )

    December 9, 2009 at 5:53 PM
  36. foongpc said...

    iamthewitch, yeah too bad! It moved too fast! Pictures of the room coming up next! : )

    December 9, 2009 at 5:54 PM
  37. foongpc said...

    ladyviral, yeah you should suggest Lake Kenyir to your company!

    Frisbee? Haha! Not possible cos it's too high up in the sky!

    My whole 3D/2N stay plus return flight costs about RM450. But I had to fork out money for lunch and dinner (Breakfast is included in the Firefly holiday package) and other activities there. Oh ya, the transfer from airport to the Resort is RM90 so both ways would be RM180 - if you have more people sharing the same cab, then you'll get to pay less per person.

    khengsiong, haha! I'm a private person : )

    TZ, hahaha! UFO didn't capture UO cos they only capture IO.
    IO = Identified Object : )

    che-cheh, yes I didn't know too until I was there! It's amazing : )

    December 9, 2009 at 6:04 PM
  43. foongpc said...

    happysurfer, YES!! You believe me! I'm in need of believers! More believers and less skeptics please! : )

    Yes, I remember your post about the UFO you spotted. We can start a UFO club now. Haha! Anyone interested to join? Skeptics not allowed! LOL!

    Yes, Lake Kenyir is a great place to go to unwind and relax! And of course, the Resort I'm staying in is a 4-star resort, so that explains the well-done look : )

    Thanks for respecting my privacy, although some bloggers may not agree. Hairy legs? Hehe. I assure you there will be many photos of my hairy legs in upcoming posts! So be prepared! LOL!

  46. foongpc said...

    bravebear, perhaps, and maybe all those people I met at Kenyir were in fact, aliens in disguise! Go watch your X-Files bro : )

    December 9, 2009 at 6:13 PM
  47. foongpc said...

    cheahs@n, oh no no! You can't do that! I will make sure the aliens abduct Abby! : )

  50. foongpc said...

    conan_cat, I wished I had managed to capture a picture of that UFO! But it just happened too fast.

    Pictures of the room interior will be in my next post, so stay tuned! : )

    December 9, 2009 at 6:19 PM
  51. foongpc said...

    lina, yes it's very nice place to relax with the greeneries all around. You should go there for a weekend holiday or something. Of course don't expect it to be as good as your Japan holidays lah! Haha!

    Yeah, pity I could not capture any UFO photos! : (

    December 9, 2009 at 6:20 PM
  52. foongpc said...

    kenwooi, how do you know I'm indeed not some soft porn star? Hahaha!

    December 9, 2009 at 6:22 PM
  54. foongpc said...

    eastcoastlife, yes this is a more luxurious holiday cos I stayed at a 4-star resort! Must balance "rough" with "comfortable" holidays! LOL!

    Well, you will get unspoilt nature, but let me warn you this Lake Kenyir is a man-made lake! Surprisingly, it does not look like one : )

    You won't be able to recognise me if you meet me on the street one day - that's the whole point! I'm a private person and prefer to remain private! But we can of course meet up - then you'll see the real me : )

    You like your previous stay there? Maybe you should go again - I think it's a good place for romantic couples ; )

    December 9, 2009 at 6:29 PM
  58. foongpc said...

    borneo falcon, but of course! And I think we are aliens ourselves.

    Yeah, go visit Lake Kenyir and blog about it! I'm sure you will love it! : )

    I am impressed. The resort looked like a 5-star establishment. I love the view of the lake from the lounge.

    Show us your priceless face la ;)

  63. ChrisAu said...

    dunno leh.... tasek kenyir always reminds me of a lot of weird weird things.

    December 9, 2009 at 11:07 PM
  64. foongpc said...

    twilight zone, why hide my face? Because I want to retain my privacy lah! There are certain people whom I don't want them to know this blog is written by me!

    Another reason is, I don't like to be scrutinized in public. Imagine going to a restaurant and someone sitting next to my table keep looking at me because he or she reads my blog and starting to judge my actions whether it is consistent with my blog writings? Oh no! I don't need that! I am not perfect and sometimes I do things that are contradictory to what I write or blog about.

    I want blogging to be fun, and something I can enjoy doing without worrying about these nonsense! : )

    December 10, 2009 at 12:27 AM
  65. foongpc said...

    mei teng, wait till you see the rooms! I think you should go lah, a lot of opportunities for you to snap with your DSLR!

    Haha, my face is indeed priceless and I'm not showing due to the reasons which I replied to Twilight Zone : )

    chrisau, what weird weird things? You are not telling me about supernatural stuffs are you, cos boy, do I have a story to tell you about my own scary experience in Kenyir! I shall blog about that soon, stay tuned! : )

  69. RoseBelle said...

    Where is this resort? I would love to visit it someday. It must of been a hecka of a moment to spot the UFO! I do believe they exist especially after watching "The Phoenix Lights". You can youtube it. There's no way or how people can say that nothing strange happened that night. Moving on...you should have superimposed your panda avatar to your picture.

    December 10, 2009 at 1:57 AM
  70. Ayie said...

    Hey foong! Yes superimpose panda so no more blurring out! hehehe

    December 10, 2009 at 2:20 AM
  71. Ayie said...

    that's a very nice place you went to...i love such places most esp with such kind of architecture!

    December 10, 2009 at 2:20 AM
  72. Ayie said...

    what's up with the UFO? always there's an intrigue in your posts!

    December 10, 2009 at 2:20 AM
  73. Shingo T said...

    Glad the UFO didn't fly lower and grab you with it's laser beam. The blogging community would have lost a very popular blogger!

    The photos of the resort reminds me of the ones I have at Bintan chalets. The buggies, the pool, the wooden structures.

    I so miss Bintan, maybe I should try your recommendation! ^_^

    December 10, 2009 at 10:42 AM

    u should do a panda over your face. it would be nice!

    UFO? seriously?
    but the view is really excellent. i can feel peace in me already

    December 10, 2009 at 2:01 PM
  79. HappySurfer said...

    Read your response to Chrisau, got scary experience there, meh? Wow! Quick, tell us!

    Actually, these sorts of places do have a past esp here in Malaysia because of the killings during the Japanese occupation.

    December 10, 2009 at 2:08 PM
  80. foongpc said...

    rose belle, the resort is located in Terengganu, near Taman Negara.

    So you believe in UFOs too? Join the gang, haha! Will YouTube "The Phoenix Lights"!

    Superimpose my panda avatar? Hmmm...

    December 10, 2009 at 2:09 PM
  81. foongpc said...

    ayie, you also recommend that I superimpose my panda avatar? I'll think about it!

    Yes, it's a nice place and the architecture is nice : )

    So you don't believe that I saw UFO? Well, can't blame you cos I believe even my travel partner think I am joking.

    December 10, 2009 at 2:12 PM
  82. foongpc said...

    shingo, sorry for my ignorance but where is Bintan?

    December 10, 2009 at 2:13 PM
  83. foongpc said...

    lina, you like to be recognised in public? Maybe you are an attention seeker? Haha!

    I didn't say it's ghosts, but it's just simply unexplained. Well, you can call it ghosts if you want. But still can go lah, make your holidays more interesting what! Anyway, your house also have what, I think you got used to it already! LOL!

    Will post about the room very soon : )

    December 10, 2009 at 2:17 PM
  84. foongpc said...

    xin, I am dead serious about the UFO! : )

    Wah! So terror, just look at my photos you feel peace in you? Then you simply must go there!! : )

    December 10, 2009 at 2:19 PM
  85. foongpc said...

    happysurfer, yes I experienced something unexplained and scary there. I didn't expect it at all! Yes, will definitely blog about it soon : )

    UFO?? hmmm, maybe you didn't have a good sleep the night before?? :p

    December 10, 2009 at 2:46 PM
  87. [SK] said...

    hey, that is indeed a very nice resort, how much is a night??

    December 10, 2009 at 2:46 PM
  88. [SK] said...

    so how much time did you spend on the lake, and then at relaxing yourself in the resort itself??

    December 10, 2009 at 2:47 PM
  89. lina said...

    aaahhh.... so when is the mystery unexplained post gonna be up? I'm waiting!

    Talking about my house, now my son also started to tell us about the "thing" he saw in his room. Not scary hantu lah, otherwise he'll be too terrified but something touching him when he's asleep in the room (the same room I saw the two figures). @_@

    December 10, 2009 at 6:01 PM
  90. lina said...

    I bet the scary experience wasn't while foong was having his relaxing massage. :D

    Foong, that's a great write for Kenyir Resort. Did you visit the dead trees and waterfalls? I absolutely loved the environment around the resort when I last visited that place.

  93. Ayie said...

    well not that i don't believe...there are many things unexplained out there. Just curious about your sighting... any details yet?

    December 11, 2009 at 9:56 AM
  94. foongpc said...

    SK, I'm pretty sure it's not an illusion caused by lack of sleep, haha!

    Depending on which chalet you stay, mine was about RM290 per night.

    Let's just say I spent most of the time outside the chalet : )

    December 11, 2009 at 10:34 PM
  95. foongpc said...
