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:

Generic Main Street, Fishing Village.

Long long Jalan Besar Tanjung Sepat

We drove into this street in Tanjung Sepat by accident. It was very long and is flanked by wooden shops on both sides. My first reaction was "I have only seen such long streets in Cambodia" Alex who recently returned from Cambodia. nodded his head in agreement.

I think it was the seemingly endless Charles de Gaulle Boulevard in Phnom Penh Cty that I rode a motorbike on. Could be another, It was confusing. No romantic colonial name here though. Just plain vanilla Jalan Besar - a common or generic Main Street name in many small towns in his country.

Hot Day By Anson Bay

Many parts of Teluk Intan town retained its colonial-day charm.

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.

Liew Kee.Of Teluk Intan

It is so famous that it spawned so many imitations in Klang Valley's pasar malam stalls or the night markets. The imitations tasted lousy, having tried the original. The iconic stall, Liew Kee is as famous as the Leaning Tower of Teluk Intan.

Teluk Intan sights

The riverine town of Teluk Intan may be sinking due to river erosion and erosion of the coastline. It is a complicated and complex problem but the people there remain rather optimistic. The town seems to have the highest number of licensed gaming outlets east of Vegas.

Teluk Intan is so cool, in that it has a lottery shop that is a ride in (top left) at the time of my visit in 2008. Quite practical as many punters are motorcyclists and they can just ride up to the counter to place bets.

A Tree In Sungai Lembing

While searching for the previous tree image, I found one image from 2007 photographed in Sungai Lembing, the historical mining town. There was also a tree in the middle of the road. That was ten years ago and I am not sure if it is still there. Maybe recent visitors can confirm.

Trees Are Poems The Earth Writes Upon The Sky

A re-visit to Pasir Penambang. the small seafood and fishing town off Kuala Selangor, brought a smile to my face. Happy to see the old tree in the middle of the road still standing and alive. In a society with scant regard for conservation and preservation of nature and old things, it was surprising to see the tree still in the middle of the road spared - four years on.
