SEREMBAN: Breaking your fast during Ramadan can happen in many places, coming home from work on a bus or on a train, but now Seremban folk can break-fast on a boat.
Last year the Lake at Taman Tasik was rejuvenated and small, medium and large paddle boats were introduced and have become a hit for couples and families to leisurely paddle around Taman Rekreasi Air Seremban.
This Ramadan the operators have introduced an option for people to break-fast in the evening either on the deck above the lake or onboard the boats- your choice.
It is a wonderful experience watching the boats, lit up with colourful lights, eating a delicious selection of foods and drinks and an even better one riding one.
Manager of the activity is Communications and Media Manager Puteri Idayu Raja Samsudin, who assured that lake management would ensure that participants strictly adhere to the standard operating procedures (SOPs).
“Apart from breaking fast on the boat, visitors can also opt for a more ‘santai’ iftar style in a designated area by the lake,” she told reporters.
Puteri Idayu said that before the implementation of the Movement Control Order, the lake managed to draw visitors not only from the state but also from Kuala Lumpur, Selangor and Melaka during weekends.
She also said that despite the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic the early response was very encouraging, and the park, which offers a wide range of facilities and interesting activities, has recorded an attendance of about 20,000.
According to her, in accordance with the SOPs set, the park can accommodate 50 to 60 visitors at any one time.
The breaking-fast package, which includes a boat ride and a complete meal set, is priced at RM25 each for adults and RM15 each for children.
The park opens from 4pm to 10pm on Monday to Friday, and from 9am to 10pm on Saturday, Sunday and public holidays. — BERNAMA and Nic Falconer
