    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!
