最近去左係Hulu Langat嘅“Fish Farm Thai Restaurant”,推介下俾大家。

點樣去:

  • 至簡單梗係跟GPS啦,就揾“Fish Farm Thai Restaurant”, Malfreemaps.com 嘅map入面就有。
  • GPS Coordinate: E 101.805160, N 3.129660
  • 去過 Ampang Lookout Point 嘅朋友就更加易 - 由Ampang方向來,上Jalan Hulu Langat 山路過咗Lookout Point嘅入門口係右手邊,再駛多唔夠幾分鐘 (約莫3km),就可看到右手邊有個招牌。大路轉入去之後仲要駛5分鐘嘅凹凸不平又漆黑一片嘅爛路,就到。

Ulu Yam Day Trip (Batu Dam, Sungai Tua Selangor State Park, Ulu Yam, Sg Sendat Waterfall) [26 Dec 2010]

January 10th, 2011 1 comment

Sungai Sendat Waterfalls all of sudden become infamous in the last few days, after a family outing turned tragic where 3 youngsters were drown there on 30th Dec 2010. Incidentally, my first (and only) visit to this waterfall was just a few days before that, on the Boxing Day (26th Dec). The memory is still fresh and vivid. I am more shocked than saddened to learn about the tragic, as it reminds me again, that there is always danger lies behind waterfalls, however serene and peaceful the place presents itself.

My trip to the Sendat Waterfalls is not pre-planned – in fact, the Sunday started with “Let’s go to some waterfalls near Ulu Yam!” and soon after we started our car journey from Kuala Lumpur. We have heard about the waterfalls near this area before, but we don’t really know the names nor the exact locations of any of them. Upon setting the often-reliable Papago to go “Ulu Yam Lama”, I found out that there is a POI nearby called “Ulu Yam Recreational Park”, and decided to go check it out.

Sekinchan – half day excursion [Christmas Eve 2010]

January 2nd, 2011 No comments

Yet another visit to Sekinchan just few days ago (24 Dec 2010), this time with Ben. Came to take some photos of the paddy field and the fishing village at dusk, as well as to try out the seafood in this area.

Most of the paddy fields have been harvested – end of December is definitely not the best timing to come for nice paddy shots. There were some controlled burning of the leftovers. I had an incident where my feet were sucked into the mud between the 2 rows of paddy, and have to clean myself up in the small river nearby.
