    Kuala Selangor one day trip with family...

    Yes, I am having one week holiday for Raya. Went to Kuala Selangor with my dearest family members for a day trip. We started our journey around 2.30pm. Reached the fishery around 4.00pm. The weather was really hot and the place smell 'bad' too. We waited for fishing boats to come back from the sea to pass fishes to the fishery, so that we can buy 'fresh' fishes. Bought a lot of Ikan Kembong, Ma Yau, a bit of prawns, and 2 crabs. After that, we went to Pasir Penambang to buy some local products like salted fish, anchovies, scallops, prawns crackers, biscuits and fish cakes. We had dinner in one of the restaurant in Pasir Penambang before heading to the Firefly Park Resort.
    Reached Firefly Park around 9.00pm. Not crowded. Bought our tickets, RM12.00 per ticket, very expensive. They must be making a lot of money. What they need are some boats, and safety jackets. No lights needed! But, all of us enjoy the Firefly trip very much! There are millions of fireflies flashing in synchrony, just like Christmas trees! But the place was too dark, I was a bit scared. Heard that there are crocodiles there. And we saw a lot of floating branches, since it was so dark, I thought they are crocodiles! Scary scary! Luckily we brought Insect Repellent spray, there were a lot of mosquitoes there. It was a 30 minutes boat ride. After visiting the Firefly Park, we headed back to KL. Although it was a tiring trip, but I was very happy. I enjoyed every moments that I spent together with my family members!

    How high can you build your Pizza Hut's salad 'tower'?

    Jeng Jeng Jeng...

    I am a salad lover. Whenever I go to Pizza Hut, I will order salad without fail. But the salad bowls that they provide are kinda 'small' and 'shallow'. This was my salad 'tower'. Anyone has a better way of 'building' a higher salad tower? Please share it with me here..... so that next time I can build a higher one......

    Lipton Jasmine Tea

    Lipton Jasmine Tea

    I love jasmine tea (Heong Pin in Cantonese or Xiang Pian in Mandarin). I like the Jasmine fragrant of it. My Indian colleague always says:"I don't understand how you Chinese people can drink Jasmine Tea, we Indian ladies only wear Jasmine flower in their hair, we don't drink"

    Jasmine Tea benefits:
    • lowering blood pressure and cholesterol level
    • regulating aging
    • reducing stress, preventing certain cancers
    • strengthening the immune system
    I believe that tea can REDUCE FAT, which means it can make me slimmer. lol
    But do not take too much! 3 years ago, I wanted to lose weight, I replace plain water with green tea. Result? I got stomach became acidic!!!
    Whenever I am feeling very full, or after I take 'fatty' or oily food, I will definitely drink a cup of Jasmine Tea. Try it!

    I bought at least 5-6 'big' mooncakes back to Malaysia last week. They are special. I'd never seen them in Malaysia before. Bought Meat mooncake (SG$4 each), teo chew mooncake (SG$9 each), and also sesame mooncake (SG$3.50 each). And guess what? Yesterday I accompanied Chloe to get some mooncakes, the price has gone down more than 50%!!! So, I bought another 'big' teo chew mooncake, SG$4.00, and I bought 2 more sesame mooncakes, SG$1.00 each only!!!

    *Updated* Sesame Mooncake photo....

    Meat Mooncake (pork), never seen this before in Malaysia, but there is a sticker on the packaging saying that this is a "product of Malaysia".

    Teo chew Mooncake (super big), it is different from what we can get in the famous Teo Chew Restaurant in Setapak.

    The filling...

    Not feeling well...

    Blame the Durian Mooncake. I fall sick on that night itself after taking it. Blame myself too, I did not drink enough water after taking it. The Durian Mooncake was too sweet & 'heaty' too.

    Visited the clinic near my office yesterday, Furama Clinic and Surgery. The consultation was less than 2 minutes, very short rite? Maybe sore throat + cough + phlegm + dizzy are not consider 'sick'. Although I was not having fever at that time, but I felt my body was very 'hot' inside. The cough syrup made me drowsy, I fall asleep within 30 minutes after taking it. The super big tablets are antibiotic (I was quite happy to see that I am getting antibiotic as doctors seldom give them nowadays). The small orange pills are for inflammation and swelling. The Lozenges taste like Strepsils.

    This few days I need to take breakfast, lunch and dinner as all the medicine can only be taken after food. No more skipping meals for me at least for one week. :(

    Oh ya. Happy Birthday, CCW.
    May all your dreams comes true.

    Steamboat @ Bugis

    'Ma Lat' steamboat @ Bugis

    We ordered clear herbal soup and Ma Lat soup (medium spicy).
    Upon ordering they will ask you whether you want 'small' spicy, 'medium' spicy or 'big' spicy.

    I like this clear soup. Very 'sweet' and nice.

    We ordered 'medium' spicy, as you can see, half of the Ma Lat soup is covered by Dried Cili Padi.

    Operating Hours: 11.00a.m - 5 a.m
    Price : SG$18 per head

    Drinks provided: Water chestnut drink and Lime juice (but they do sell can drinks and beer too)
    Soup base : Tomyam, Ma Lat, and Herbal clear soup

    Most of the time, you have to queue up in front of the restaurant in order to get a table, that day Chloe and I waited approximately 30 minutes. We ate from 6.30 p.m to 9.00 p.m. lol

    Pulau Ubin Part 3

    Coastal Boardwalk
    This coastal boardwalk allows you to observe the various habitats found along the shore without getting wet, but I did not spot anything there probably because we reached there during high tide.

    Mangrove Boardwalk
    This Mangrove Boardwalk takes you into the mangroves, starting from the seaward side and then looping into back mangroves.

    I dare not to walk on the grille.

    Wah... Scary...

    View from Mangroves Boardwalk


    Resting @ shelter

    Mangroves - The roots will be fully covered by water during hide tide.

    Jejawi Tower

    If you want to enjoy the view of Chek Jawa, climb up to this Jejawi Tower. But the max load is 20 person only. I felt the Tower was actually shaking, so scary!!

    Found this on top of the tower. They should have put this below the tower.

    I donno the name of this habitat - 4 leg fish?
