Around Kuala Selangor

Kuala Selangor is a fantastic nearby getaway. There are those monkeys at Malawati Hill, the lighthouse and nature park, the seafood and fishing village of Pasir Penambang and if that is not enough, there is also Auntie's Kopitiam, Cendol Bakar and more.

It may be a good idea to stay at the De Palma Inn (link at below) which is near to these places. Don't forget the Fireflies Park and the beautiful Sri Shakti Temple. Links to most of these places are given and as with all my pages, alternative and other nearby accommodation options are provided:

The Gold Coast Model

The Gold Coast Model

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.

As I discussed with Penang advertising legend Kenny Song many years ago, the water on the West coast of peninsular Malaysia, be it Penang, Pangkor or Langkawi, is rarely cobalt blue unlike the oceans of the east coast islands and in Borneo.

Bagan Lallang Beach

Bagan Lallang Beach

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.

Time And Tide Wait For No Man or Woman

Thw New Jetty at Tanjung Sepat

Time And Tide Wait For No Man or Woman.

At the seaside of Tanjung Sepat, the rustic old wooden jetty was gone, to my surprise and disappointment.

It is being replaced by a 300m long, RM 3.2 million modern pier jutting out into the Straits Of Malacca. It had little character from a photographer's standpoint. It was reported that the frail old wooden one collapsed. I did feel nervous when I walked on it previously.

Peaceful Easy Feeling - The Swamps of The Gold Coast

Loved how serene the swampy coastline and the mangrove stumps appeared near the Persatuan Sukan Layar Selangor (Sailing Sports Association). Soothing in every way.

"I like the way your sparkling earrings lay,
Against your skin, it's so brown.
And I wanna sleep with you in the desert tonight
With a billion stars all around"

Peaceful Easy Feeling was a song recorded by The Eagles in 1972. They don't write songs like this anymore.

All That Glitters Is Gold

The eco tourism gem on the gold coast of Selangor

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.

Tanjung Sepat - A Day Trip Destination

A day trip destination like the fishing village of Tanjung Sepat benefited from the then Facebook boom, I hypothesised.

Many Facebook users do not or can't write or produce original content. Which was why sharing became popular. It may be second nature for us old bloggers and we forget not everyone are as prolific.

The Beach Boys Of Morib

The Beach Boys at Morib Beach

Morib beach is so idyllic, secluded and near yet nobody comes here on a weekday. Except for the beach boys, a group of monkeys having the esplanade to themselves. Glad to see wildlife co existing.

Delightful to see them swinging on Casuarina trees. Morib is the nearest real beach for us landlocked KLites. You will cry if you come here on a weekend as I previously did. The amount of litter and garbage strewn about and left behind by visitors was shocking.

Mui Choy Kau Yoke 梅菜扣肉

 Mui Choy Kau Yoke 梅菜扣肉

For Chinese Only.

Alex is Chinese. Thus it was not surprising his eyes light up when the boss at the restaurant suggested Mui Choy Kau Yoke (梅菜扣肉) or braised pork belly steamed with preserved mustard greens - a kind of Chinese cabbage or bok choy.

The dish will always make a Chinese drool not just because it is a delicious porky dish but because it is from an ancient recipe. People are always happy to make a connection with tradition or heritage, I think.
