OFFICIAL DAY ONE OF SEM BREAK
a bunch of us leaders went to bukit cahaya to check out the stuff there, cause the whole youth would be having an outinggggg on september 4th~ anyone wanna join~?
anyhow, since i am a 'shah alamese', i should know what are the fun places to hangout in shah alam right?
after 19 years of living in this bandar diraja,
i know more about entertainment in other places than in my own 'hometown'...
but this place(bkt cahaya) i know, cause my mom brought us to bkt cahaya a long long time ago,
i think its when i was...7?
hrm..this place changed alot lo, although i heard the government splashed a lot of money on this agricultural park but ah....
i think ah....
firstly, the 'rabbit farm' has no rabbits, only a grossly disfigured one, and an army of ants that look like they can devour you like the indiana jones movie...........
then the fishing farm was empty...lol....before we turned into the junction another bunch of people came up, looking weary and panting like dogs.....
they warned us not to go to the 'dead end' cause its a waste of time...
hahahaha...but the adventurous binwu wanted to see, so at last we went on....the tanks were empty...==
but there's a huuge lake,
artistic picture of huge lake taken by me...
but the lakes there were pretty quiet, which was rather creepy in a way....
MUNSTERS were lurking below...
any moment the loch ness monster would creep up and chomp....
ohkay ini macam some cheap horror movie..
but apart from that, i think the stuff there were ohkay ohkay lar~
the fun's with friends~~~
so, our journey begins:
got ourselves bikes at rm3 per hour, you can choose old bikes or new bikes,
we got old ones, but personally, i feel new ones might have more 'oomph!' because those slopes were no joke, you need good gears and good brakes to survive~
also, no sharing of bikes ala gaya romantik because there's no way you can survive.
maps helpfully built along the way to keep us on track.
(i recommend getting your own personal map at the counter, it really helps~)
first stop : bird 'park'.
this possessive peacock would stop us from ogling his 'peahens'...
but i've never liked animals in cages, so whatever...
there was another majestic eagle there, but the eagle was in a very short cage,
which made me sad. eagles are meant to soar, not sit on tree trunks.
taman pertanian shah alam, please don't abuse animals!!
me taken on my bike~
its been YEARS since i rode a bike...this pic was taken when aeron's bike had problems going uphill and we were making good use of the time waiting for him~
(see? get a new bike for rm 5 per hour)
melody with the first MUNSTER lake. look at how quiet it is???
aeron sez this reminded him of Sabah's mountains..
its actually very nice if you ignore the creepy factor~
walkie talkie cockatoo~ i lovvve the way it talks like a robot...LOL
four season house~!!
forgive my excitement, but this was the first time i went in~~~
entry rm 3 per pax~
in the 'summery gazebo'...it was 'summer' at the time we went~
nice garden pathways....but we aren't allowed to walk on them :(
whee ~ one and only group pic taken by me~~ my skills HAVE improved~~!!
bro having spring fever~
miaolody with eileen~
spot mel !
(this look a bit indian style hor?)
the four season house was 19.6 degrees celsius..and it was supposed to be summer,
but anyhow, we enjoyed the chill...
i mean, who would pay to experience an even hotter temperature from the outside?
big and weird and flat hibiscus~ happy merdeka~
another one of the 'attractions'--the ornamental garden..
when we cycled through it looked rather kanasai, but from the lookout point it looked quite nice~
the big and old looking lookout point...from far it reminded me of something that might appear in Princess mononoke or any other of Hayao Miyazaki's creations~
like those natural type stuff that sprout from the forest floor~
there's supposed to be another mushroom museum here, but it was closed...ah well...
after lookout point went for these exercise thingies~
when eileen was taking this pic, she asked :' melody, do you want to stand up?'
when mel was already standing like me!!
poor girl.... XDD
(ignore me if you don't get my point)
Chimps and monkeys on the loose....
(this is an incorrect demonstration, please refer to the instructions when you wanna try for yourself~)
aaaand.... she does a split!!!
after that we also went the the dam, another fishfarm etc, but i was too lazy to upload pics...
the whole 'trip' was uphill, downhill, uphill, downhill....
and those downhills parts were really wheeeee!!
uphill? *URGH*pant*sweat*are we there yet?*i wanna die!*@#$%!* etc...
after that we went for the healthiest lunch eva ~
since we spent the whole day breathing in freshhh air and exercisinggg,
its only logical that we continue the healthy lifestyle and had a balanced lunch free of fat, oil, sugar, salt, cholestrol, calories, and all other gunk~
so we went to 'little ben', which is the restaurant by Herbaline Kota Kemuning,
but surprise surprise~
it had changed its name , to 'lohas', which if i remember correctly is the name for all things healthy and environmentally friendly~
hermm...i had baked tomato seafood rice, which was great~
there were octopus babies(the joy of eating paul's offspring), mussels, prawns, seafood tofu and crabsticks...
surprisingly the seafood rice didn't contain fish...hmm...
sorry i had gunked up my rice before i remembered to take a shot...
melody's baked tomato chicken rice, ungunked version~
spot her drink~
i forgot the complicated name, but its basically ribena+sprite+grapes~
the nicest drink of the day~
they guys didn't enjoy their noodles because i think the chef really didn't put salt in.
but eileen loved her noodle because for her its just right.
tastiness is in the tongue of the taster~
no thirstiness after that lunch~ proves that no MSG is added~
sadly that was the one and only healthy day of my sem break so far =(
haha~ more updates later~
[my right arm aches now cause i did housework(ironing a ton of clothes. no joke!)...haiz...time to contribute to the family~]
