We went for a cruise tasik @ Putrajaya. Actually the first time we went (pic above), it was around 3PM that time and the next boat was around 5PM. So we decided to come back another day.
The following week, we went to Putrajaya again. Went straight to cruise tasik, to buy tickets for the 2PM boat. It was around noon at that time, so Umi and Baba decided to have lunch at the eateries @ Souq. When it was Zuhur time, Umi and Baba had to take turns to go to Masjid Putrajaya for prayers, while I kept myself busy eating.
Between all the time Umi and Baba going to prayer and having lunch in turns, it was already near 2PM! We wrapped up pretty quickly to go to the jetty....
.. and watch the cruise boat sail right in front of our eyes ..
They couldn't get the boat to turn around (obviously!). There were talk of sending us off to chase the cruise by using a smaller boat, but it didn't happen. But in the end, we had to wait for the next one at 3.30PM. We had some time to kill, so we headed to Alamanda. And boy, were Umi and Baba shopping really quickly. They were looking at their watches (actually they don't wear watches.. they use handphones to tell the time) all the time. We certainly weren't going to miss the boat the second time.
So we arrived around half an hour early. There were some activities going on at the jetty to keep ourself occupied watching them. Apparently you can book the place, book the boat, do some makan-makan over there for any functions. Coolness.
The cruise lasted for around 45 minutes, and we watched mainly government buildings (what else is interesting in Putrajaya, huh?) and some bridges and palaces, with commentary! Heheh. There were also some group from the Middle East together with us in the boat, so there was an extra translation in another language even Umi and Baba can't quite make out on the way back.
All in all it was quite a good way to spend some family time, albeit the price was a tad expensive than normal. Even the economic crisis can't stop these tourism guys to lower their prices, huh?
Pictures are from Baba's nokia handphone (can you believe that he forgot to bring the camera along?? sheeshhh..), so you have to bear with the picture quality, or rather lack of it.
