The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat…

The last time I had a vacation it was back in December 2106 and it was a trip to Hong Kong. Ever since then, I’ve worked till the wee hours of the morning and through festive holidays. That’s just the way it is, when you’re running your own empire. 🙂 This retreat vacation was definitely long overdue and where else to go for a good retreat than, The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat in Ipoh, Perak for a few days? 😀 This would be my second time at the retreat. The Banjaran definitely has a soft spot in my heart. ❤

Why I love The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat, Ipoh?
