While visiting family and friends can be very warm, it is no harm to give Chinese New Year gatherings a new twist of venue and of course, new topic of discussions other than *ahem* marriage.
The Lost World of Tambun showed me the epitome of just the place that would host my family and friends in a fun and exciting environment. Although "Crazy Rich Chinese New Year" sounds like it is all about the money, I am sure that it is love and happiness that I am going to be richer with. I'll tell you why.

The fun-filled park has a list of activities that will make waves of excitement amid the joy of the festival to guests of all walks of life. To begin with, those who visit the theme park on 5th and 6th February will be treated to the electrifying Neon and LED lit lion and dragon dance prancing at the beat of the drums. Other happenings at LWOT include meet and greet sessions with the God of Prosperity and the ‘Crazy Rich Dynasty’ play, that revolves around Chinese virtues. The display of martial art history also revives the appreciation of the Chinese roots.
There are more reasons to celebrate with the ‘Spin It Rich’ game at Malayana Village from
1.00pm to 1.30pm every Friday and Saturday. For craft enthusiasts, the ‘Awesome Playhouse’ for a creative ‘Prosperous CNY Ornaments’ craft and skills session is there to keep you entertained. Register online also for the ‘Lou Sang’ session for a prosperous toss and better luck with loved ones throughout the year!

Mixing the best of both Mother-nature and man's creations, the experience was so therapeutic that my longing for a revisit has never worn out. It transcends you to another world, away from all the complexities of the materialistic world.

The pride of Lost World of Tambun, Mas Rain the Giraffe. He was born on a rainy day
I didn't expect that a place so close to home managed to fulfill one of my bucket list which I thought I had to go to Africa to do!
Zuzu, the baby zebra was born in Lost World of Tambun which means he is a pure Malaysian!
Guests are allowed to pet the giraffe, zebras and camels. But do be gentle!

Alternatively, you can choose for a more rugged way of living with the Glamping variety, which combines you with nature when you sleep out in well-equipped and well-guarded camps with roaming deers beside the lake that mirrors the mountains.
The Lost World of Tambun restored my harried soul and gifted me with happiness that was sincere and pure. Cheers to many more visits with my family and friends!
