Kuala Selangor Outing

Last Sunday we had a family outing with all Dearie Suki's family members to Kuala Selangor. Ever since his late 'tai ku' passed away last March'07, we seldom meet the rest of his aunties and uncles. It is such a pity and sad case that his late 'tai ku' passed away after being diagnosed with the final stage ovarian cancer. Furthermore she detected this on the day she is supposed to be retire from her working life as a head nurse in a private maternity hospital. She is still single and loves my Dearie Suki so much.

She left a lump sum of money for him to manage her funeral and other services, and now with the balance of the money, my Dearie Suki will organize a family outing every year. We organized a trip to Kuala Selangor and then we had dinner at Ijok, the one famous for the Beggar's Chicken.

We started our journey at about 3 pm and met up with the rest of the family members at his uncle house in Bukit Jalil.

Both Le- Ann and Ee-Thern getting ready and can't wait to go. I love this photo so much, both of them trying to camwhore themselves and I didn't realize they are playing with my new camera.

Le-Ann is very happy that she is going 'kai kai' again after she recover from her sickness. For about a week she has been staying at home cos Daddy tell her no 'kai kai'.

My Ee-Thern kept asking me " Mommy, reach d ah". Aiyor... farn sei yan. I get him to suck him thumb and sleep first.

Hot and sunny weather.

Finally both of them slept all the way till we reached Kuala Selangor.

We reached Kuala Selangor at about 4.30 pm and we brought them to Pasir Penampang. Stop over and we walked around the small town. Quite a number of shops selling fresh fish balls, fish, anchovies, and other dried stuffs.

Le-Ann with a grumpy face cos just woke up from her nap.

After few minutes of warming up, hahaha... back to normal can play and run here and there. Wah can even ask Daddy to buy her a big packet of Keropok.

Fishballs and Yong Tau Foo for sale.

Playing by the side of the sea. So, so, so HOT.

Le-Ann : Mommy, ah boy want to jump down!

This 'Hiao Char Boh' playing with my sunglasses. Aiyor... Mommy GUCCI sunglasses very expensive one leh.

After that we went over to the wet market to buy some fresh seafood and fish. The rest of my 'Yee Mah Ku Cheh' buy so much and Dad, was telling me some of the seafood are delivered down from KL. So, why buy so much since it is not any cheaper!

Le-Ann : Mommy, faster la very 'chou chou'.

Dearie Suki is so smart to bring this ice box along. Hahaha.... I also buy some fishes and lala too.

It was almost 6 pm and Uncle Peter wanted to go Bukit Melawati. Alamak... what to see over there. But end up didn't go cos we booked the dinner at 6 pm. Dearie Suki guide them to the restaurant and there are 5 cars following behind us. So must make sure we didn't 'salah jalan', if not 'malu' only.

The restaurant is located in remote area and got to go through the bumpy road and passed through all the palm oil estate. But that is 5 years back but now it is all tar road and the road is no longer bumpy.

We booked 3 tables and it is a set dinner. Per table is RM299 and the menu consist of :

1. Beggar's Chicken
2. Beggar's Duck
3. Beggar's Pork Knuckles
4. Beggar's Glutinous Rice
5. Steamed Assam Pomfret
6. Kon Chin Har / Prawns
7. Kam Heong Crab
8. Black Pepper Pig's Stomach Soup
9. Stir-fried Vegetables
10. Fruits

I asked Dad before is this the way Beggar cook their food at home. The chicken is wrapped with aluminium foil then the outer part is covered with mud /clay. Then is is burried in a hole with fire burning on top of it.

I realized the food standard drop unlike few years back it tastes quite good. Maybe now is too commercialized and there are so many tourist buses stop over. But anyway the rest of the family members enjoyed the dinner but not for me and Dearie Suki or perhaps maybe we went there too often with Dad and Mom last time. So there is nothing special to us anymore.

Total bill came out to RM 925.60 plus all the 'tip tip tup tup'.... drinks la, peanuts la, keropok la, tissue la....
