A Memorable Trip
Yup, this is indeed a memorable trip for me. It is a trip with my most treasure friends in my life, the She Fu (a community service society) gang. It is a club in my university and this trip is organize as a graduation trip for those who are going to graduate soon. This time, we went to Kuala Sepetang and Taiping. Kuala Sepetang is famous with it’s cheap seafood as it is actually dominated by a fisherman village.
We departed from Penang Island on 17 May and we reached Taiping. Once we reach Taiping, we went to a hawker center and have our dinner. After that we went to watch a movie named “Star Trek” and then we spent our night at Sherlyn’s house.
The second day, early in the morning, we went to have our breakfast at Pokok Asam. It is famous with it’s curry noodle and it’s laksa which is mixed together with the curry. During the breakfast, I take the opportunities to shoot everyone face. This is Li Yen, the leader of She Fu. And this is Ah Yoke, the laughter as always. This is Ze Chen, a friend from China.This is Joo Soon, a kinda shy guy. This is Pei San, a very special girl to me. Seeing her smile made me happy, and when she is sad, I am sad too. Indeed, she is the girl that made my day and I like her very much! 😀This is Jie Hui, the previous leader of She Fu. She is just like a mother to all. This is Sherlyn, which we stayed at her house for the night. This is Jer Xian, which come join us from afar. This is Hua Wei, a rotten senior like me. And this is Hua Wei’s girlfriend, Chee Yuen.This is Pei Yin, a very good friend to Jer Xian and coming from afar too.
After having done with our breakfast, we went to buy the bus tickets for Pei Yin and Jer Xian for them to go back to Seremban. We are lucky enough that we met with an event organize by the 988 (a radio channel). And of course, we wont miss the chance to have a photographing session with the prosperity god.Here we go, with the prizes we won from the 988’s event.
Done with the ticket stuff, we were on our way to Kuala Sepetang. About half an hour of the driving, we reached Kuala Sepetang. From now on, Heh Pyng will be our tour guide which she is a junior and lived in Kuala Sepetang. We will be staying at her house for the night coming soon. The first things she introduce to us is the process of selecting the clam by using the machine. And then, we went to Heh Pyng house to settle down with our things. To reach her house, we have to board on a boat to cross the river. This is the backyard of Heh Pyng house which is above the river.
After settling down with everything, the first stop we went is the mangroves forest. We went there by boarding a boat which is drove by Heh Pyng’s brother. Poor me, I am the only one not in the photo. 😦
Leaving the mangroves forest, we went to see how the charcoal is made. It is not far from the mangroves forest so we walked there, but it is very hot at that time. Saw the big semi-sphere like thing at the back? It is use to burn the woods until they become charcoal. It is said that it takes months of time to complete a burning.
Here we are, the fish farm in the middle of the sea. I was really amazed. I mean, wow, I was really standing in the middle of the sea! The fish farm was supported by many barrels at the bottom and the walking path is just some very narrow wood. For the first timer like me, I do really feel dizzy walking on it. The view at there is just so outstanding. This is Heh Pyng’s father. Thank you very much!
After that, we went back to Heh Pyng’s house for some little rest and then we were on our ways to see the firefly. This is the first time in my life ever to see a firefly and you have no idea how excited I was. Too bad that I didn’t take any photos of the firefly. After that, we went back to Heh Pyng’s to have our dinner. Heh Pyng’s mother has prepared a lot of seafood for us, which is fresh and delicious. Another too bad is that I cant eat seafood as I am allergic to it.
After enjoying at the waterfall, we went to have our lunch. After that, we were going to ambush Sherlyn for an early birthday celebration too. Due to time constrain, we were unable to buy a cake. Really sorry for that.
Unfortunately, it was raining on that day, so we were unable to shoot much photos at the Taiping Lake. For the last stop, we went to Pei San’s hometown, Serdang to taste the fry porridge. And lastly, we pay a little visit to Pei San’s house. Well, frankly, I was a bit nervous..haha..
And with that, it is the end of the 3 days 2 night wonderful trip. This is a trip that I will never forget in my life. I am so glad that I joined the trip and if I didn’t, I will be sure to regret for the rest of my life. Lastly, I wish to say that, She Fu, it is really nice to have you all by my side. I am not someone who like to travel, but traveling with you all, it is just that different. You are the treasure in my life and I will treasure it well. Thank you for letting me met you! 😀
