Company Trip 08 - A' Famosa

I recently went for a company trip to A' Famosa. For those whom are not from Malaysia, A' Famosa is located in Melaka, Malaysia. This is quite a famous tourist place as well. It's really big there, somehow seems like a city by itself.

We stayed in this villa which is kinda nice, it has this swimming pool at the backyard as well. But we gals did not go to our pool coz ours are kinda dirty. As for the guys, they really did enjoy swimming n chilling in the pool and do all their "stuns".

We 12 girls in a villa, I wonder where is another gal that time.

The Kitchen

The Washroom

The Pool

The Hall

Oh, I managed to capture this. The guy's place. They can chuck as many things as possible on the table.

They have Safari there as well but we did not go for that as our package does not include that and due to the time constraint as well. A'Famosa also have this small town called Cowboy Town which is quite famous.

Of course during the trip, I din miss out the chance to take a picture with 1 of the animal, the Horse. Felt that it's quite pitiful as well cause whenever there's a bus around, the horse feel kinda streesed out and it has to carry a crate behind.


There are many different type of breeds of horse performing different task. Horses life span is about 25~30 years. However, there is 1 horse call "Old Billy", a horse which lived in the 19th century, lived up to 62 years. That's double the life span of a normal horse. Pregnancy for horse lasts for approximately 335-340 days and usually results in one foal.

I found some terminology from Wikipedia.The following terminology is used to describe horses of various ages:

Foal: a horse of either sex less than one year old. A nursing foal is sometimes called a suckling and a foal that has been weaned is called a weanling. Most domesticated foals are weaned at 4-6 months of age.

Yearling: a horse of either sex that is between one and two years old.

Colt: a male horse under the age of four. A common terminology error is to call any young horse a colt, when the term actually only refers to young male horses.

Filly: a female horse under the age of four.

Mare: a female horse four years old and older.

Stallion: a non-castrated male horse four years old and older. Some people, particularly in the UK, refer to a stallion as a "horse." A Ridgling or "Rig" is a stallion which has an undescended testicle. If both testicles are not descended, the horse may appear to be a gelding, but will still behave like a stallion.

Gelding: a castrated male horse of any age, though for convenience sake, many people also refer to a young gelding under the age of four as a "colt."

There is so much more about horses which I could type "forever", I'll leave that for bloggeries in the future. For the time being, you may click here to view more about horse.

Back to the topic, there is also a baby elephant which tourist can pay to take a photo together. But this baby elephant is being chained-up for safety of the tourist.

During this company trip of coz we have the team building activities, it was kinda fun and we have some free and easy time to play at the water world where we can see our male colleagues go wild. =p. Then at night I was 1 of the emcee for the dinner, I guess I'm the worst of all.


Overall, all of us had a great time.
