My father used to bring my siblings and I to Sungai Pandan Waterfall once in a while during the weekends. I believe most of the kids like to play with water, and so did I. I would splash water towards my siblings and start a water fight. Sometimes, I soaked myself in the water, looked at the blue sky and admired the beauty of nature. Besides that, I would sit at the bottom of the fall and let the water hit my body. It felt like nature was giving me a free massage! Although the water was cold and I was shivering, I managed to have fun at the same time. Now, I choose to sit on a rock, soak my feet into the water, and think of the good old days. :)
Sungai Pandan Waterfall is definitely my favorite childhood hangout place. It has become a part of my memorable childhood.
