My former colleague and long time friend, the statuesque Simp Lee sent me a bunch of pics she took at the Avani Goldcoast Sepang, where she recently stayed and was a happy camper. Thank you, Simp. She's regularly seen in television commercials, is also a model, a yogi, homemaker, chef and was the beautiful Mrs Asia Supreme Earth 2015.
Found one of my images of Bagan Lallang beach frrom 2013. Maybe it was my overactive imagination and I spooked myself. Standing there at twilight, it looked like the lalang (weed grass) were creeping up silently and surrounding the unsuspecting family, before strangling them on the white sands.

My first trip to Bagan Lallang, was as a young man in the 1980s, courtesy of Texas Instruments Malaysia of Ulu Klang. I went there to shoot some pics and videos of their Family Day and they brought a few thousand employees and family members there. The beach was virtually unknown then and was very deserted on a normal day and was nicely undeveloped. Even finding the remote and secluded beach was a problem as there were no GPS or Waze then. My fondest memory was walking in low tide and climbing up on a skeletal boat wreck not far from shore.
The stretch between Morib Beach and the luxurious AVANI Sepang resort in Bagan Lallang was branded as the Gold Coast of Selangor. For me the true beauty of the Gold Coast is at this section where mangrove trees appear half sunken during the sea's low tide.
Under a golden sunset, all that glitters is gold, especially to someone appreciative of nature. I love the haunting and eerie silence of the submerged trees when contrasted with the the noisy birds flying above the swamps.
