Bagan Lallang Beach

A long time favourite is this serene and deserted 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. My fondest memory was walking in low tide and climbing up on a skeletal boat wreck not far from shore. Today the wreck is gone and there is the beautiful and luxurious Avani Gold Coast Resort. dotting the coast. Seen here in the background, its beautiful palm frown shaped design protrudes into the ocean. It is best seen as an aerial view. The beach is still serene and deserted on a weekday. Love the neat rows of casuarina trees on the sand. There used to be plenty of lalang (weed or cogon grass) on the sand, true to its name. The foreground old exposed brick wall or rustic pillar, iron fence and creeper plants were created by a filter in Smart Photo Editor. The software has a suite of thousands of bizarre and weird effects and filters which you think you will never use and will scoff at. Depending on the picture, if it works, it works amazingly well. The resulting picture reminds of the time I was having a drink by the beach side at the covered concourse or foyer of another faraway seaside resort. It was the Spanish inspired design of the Awana Porto Malai (now Resorts World Langkawi) in Langkawi island. Anyone remembers or knows the enterprising event organizer Vincent Joseph from T.I.? Would like to get in touch with him. #baganlallang #beach #goldcoast #selangor #seaside #awanisepang #texasinstruments #nature #travel #smartphotoeditor
