Travel: Klang Day Trip

My uni mates and I spent a day at Klang on the weekend that has just passed. Thanks to Chia Yin, who had carefully planned out the whole day's event, we had fun despite the rain.

I am proud I survived the day! :p... Klang has never occur to me as a holiday destination. The only thing I know people do there is to have a "Bak Kut Teh" meal... So, this trip was an eye opener to me. Let me start off with the pic of me at various places in Klang :D...

We reached Chia Yin's house in Klang at around 8am and made our way to Chong Kok Kopitiam for breakfast. This place is famous among the locals and it was packed when we arrived. Thankfully after waiting for about 10 minutes, we managed to get a table.

After breakfast, we walked towards the nearby Pre-War Shoplots for some photo taking.

Our first picture together in Klang :p...

Found a nice wall and actually spent a long time there watching Wan Sin and Jenni take pictures :p... Of course we took a few group pictures too...

In between we also passed the Raja Mahadi Fort, Kota Bridge, Little India, Klang Convent School, Kuan Yin Temple, and a few other places but as it was raining we just looked from inside the car. 

We then spent an hour plus at The Royal Gallery (Galeri Diraja Sultan Abdul Aziz). This gallery is well-maintained and has surprisingly a wide range of personal collections of artifacts and gifts.

Walking on the streets on Klang, hubby took some nice pictures which I think is worth sharing :)
Gangnam Style made it to money loaner's banner too!

Seafood for lunch at Perlama Seafood Restaurant.

All the happy faces when food is near...

When you can't reach for the food, you stand up... :p

This is a view from the seafood restaurant. 

As the rain stopped, we decided to take a boat to Bagan Hailam at the price of RM1 per person/way.

It wasn't the best decision for Jenni (the girl next to me in the picture below) as she had one of her foot in the mud when trying to get onto the boat :p... 

View from the front seat of the boat.

Before we got on land, Adam took a picture of us.

It was quite saddening though to be greeted by the sight of rubbish accumulating almost everywhere.

Some pictures of the place.

This is a school.

Found a little shop that serves drinks and snacks. The biggest mistake made here was ordering barley served in Carlsberg bottles which was weird tasting.

The way the biscuits are sold here brought back some childhood memories.

Despite the small area, a few temples were sighted.  We took some group pictures again before taking a boat back.

More food before dinner. We visited the Yao Yao Ping shop for some fried chicken, ayam percik and yao yao ping.

We had bak kut teh for dinner and then supper before calling it a day.
