Chap Goh Meh Ride in the City of KL

A total of 18 friends turned up at Dataran Merdeka on the morning of "Chap Goh" 15th Day of Chinese New Year which was the last day of celebration.
Everyone was expecting to eat first on the Stage 1 of this ride and I took them to Chinatown which was very near to Dataran Merdeka.
 Chinatown is always colourful and it was already crowded in the morning of the 15th day of CNY. We were there for our breakfast and everyone were satisfied with their meals and were ready to roll.

Stage 2 - Maha Vihara Temple @ Brickfields was the first temple we visited out of the three in our itinerary.
Stage 3 - Thean Hou Temple, a short & steep climb from Brickfields.
We took a short cut through this cemetary @ Sg. Besi to an Air Force Museum, everyone were very quiet as we carefully rode through the cemetary....shhh....
Wow... we were welcomed by the staff of TUDM and was well taken care by them. Terima kasih!!!
Many of us were not aware of this place and were excited when we were allowed to enter into the military compound.
 Of course I had a good time and fun in the museum.

A chance to try a flight simulator, though it was a short stint but at least we know a bit of how to fly a jet plane as compared to our two wheels machine. And that was Stage 4 @ Muzium TUDM.
From TUDM we crossed back to Jalan Bellamy using the cemetery road and headed to a new park called Taman Dusun (Stage 5)
After a brief ride through the park, we came to this shady road next to the old nice to ride along this route.
Stage 7 - So here we were at the old Istana, the entire group went into the palace where Jotaro & myself were keeping an eye on our bicycles at the entrance.
Stage 8 - Petaling Jaya via the Federal Highway motor lane, Jotaro and Siew Kheong coming from the rear were the sweepers of the day. Thank You!!!
Stage 8 - Siamese Temple @ Jalan Gasing Wat Chetawan
Stage 9 - Lunch at Raju banana leaf rice at Jalan Chantek (Off Jalan Gasing)
A VIP came over our table and chit chatted with us, he was my super senior from my secondary school (Sultan Badlishah School) in Kulim.
After a good meal of banana leaf rice, it was time to ride back to Kuala Lumpur
The last stage was slightly hitched by a drizzle but it did not dampen our spirit we proceeded and completed safely back to Dataran Merdeka. Thanks to every single riders who were cooperative and most importantly a safe ride was achieved besides the fun we had. See you again cheers!!!

Kedai Makanan SINKI @ Dengkil

It has been a while since I last visited Sinki, I used to patron it during the time when we were executing building contacts in Putrajaya and Dengkil is one of the few places closest to Putrajaya where we can eat non-halal food.
After a good ride at Putrajaya lakeside a few of us were gamed for a good lunch at Dengkil and I was glad that the group decided this eating house because I like the food here.

The signature fried fish coated with chill sauce gravy must try leh....
Wow!!! big fresh water prawns so enticing, fresh and tender.
RM148.00 for these 7 prawns....good but costly...once in a blue moon it's okay and for a good experience and a marvellous taste of big prawns.
Steamed Jelly chicken
I like this Paku veggie stir fired with belacan crunchy and not sappy at all. Lovely.
In deed it was a good lunch and a word of advice if you do want to pay too much for the meal then avoid ordering prawns.
This 70+ years old uncle has been selling these pau for more than 20 over years.
Some of us went over to the next shop next door and bought some "pau" back. Someone told me that the original pau maker is actually somewhere opposite this place, I have yet to confirm this.

Pork rib with sweet sauce.
Big bean curd topped with a coat of tasty ingredients that makes it so complete for a tofu dish.

CNY - Ride to Serendah Waterfall from Rawang

30 cyclists and mostly folding bicycles celebrating the 7th day of Chinese New Year by cycling from Rawang to Serendah Waterfall and the trip was awesome. Well Done Cik Gu SC Chin for a fantastic planning and successful event. We want more.
 We gathered at Tesco Rawang early in the morning and there were two cyclists waiting at the Commuter train station to join the group.

The usage of main & busy roads was to the minimum unless it was unavoidable.
Bubbling Yellow Man (Larry) from Penang came to join the fun and he is such a playful guy.
This was the time we have no choice but to use the trunk road (not too long) and it was not that bad after all.

The small town of Serendah was shocked for a moment as we passed by at least we made them smile and brought colour to them.
It has been fun for me during this Watery Chinese New Year. Cycle cycle & cycle.
 Going through the Orang Asli Settlement was so refreshing.

Anne had a chance to taste a bit of off road riding
We rode a little further for a better spot and obviously it was worth the while to visit the upper stream.
We spent a fair bit of time enjoying the fun at the waterfall ... let strip and get into the water.
Cool & refreshing water spa.
A sneak into Sekeping Serendah Resort.
Quiet with only the sound of nature, what a lovely place to get away from the bustling city .
We were fortunate to met the creator of this master piece.
Some intruded into the privacy of the guest ....hello be considerate next time.
Bye bye Sekeping next time we will stay a night and enjoy to the max.

The best Leng Chee Kang in town ... cheap & good. Must try !!!!

RM2.00 per bowl with generous amount of ingredients.
Another popular landmark in Serendah the Seven Wells which was built by the British during the colonial days to prevent flooding and it is still standing majestically.
The ride.

The ride from Serendah Town to the Waterfall.
The schedule for those who want to commute the train to Rawang..
