|A day before the actual day two friends went to Serendah to survey the logistics of a proposed cycling route for the shooting.|
|11 of us were picked to help in a production for a TV programme called "Get Fit Get Focus". It is a 13 episode programme on simple fitness activities and cycling is one of them.|
|Good Morning Serendah!!! ...everyone of us has to wake up very early in the morning, some of us left in a convoy from RSC Bukit Kiara at 5.30am.|
|So here we were in Serendah in the morning of 15 September 2013. As usual we have to eat before we can do anything for the day.|
Besides the good local coffee, we tried a variety of noodles which was unique and interesting.
|This is the coffee shop, Kedai Kopi Yee Kee a place for you to remember if you want to find a reasonable good breakfast in Serendah.|
|All fully satisfied with their morning meals and were ready to rock & roll.|
|A briefing by Jason Chong, the Director of the production house.|
|We took his briefing bit by bit and try our best to blend with his expectation.|
A warm up ride around the town and enjoy the Sunday crowd of Serendah.
|Now...this looks rather serious... right..... there were scenes of us gathering at this meeting point, unfolding our bicycles, putting on our gloves and helmets like what we normally will do....|
|Jason joined us in the ride while the crew members were following us in a van and a cameraman on a scooter.|
|7 Wells was our first stop and it was about 2km away from the town.|
We did some scenes of warm up stretches as part of our cycling practice.
|The crews were requested by the Director to prepare a few smaller video cams to be fixed onto us.|
|Like on the helmet|
|Onto the bicycle.|
On our way to the Waterfall.
|While the cameraman on scooter would move up and down taking shots of us cycling.|
|Within a short ride we reached the waterfall of Serendah the place was crowded with people picnicking.|
|YY Lee is the writer of this programme, he too rode with us and he surely enjoyed doing it. YY you should get one of this small bike leh.|
|While some crew members were working on something at the lower waterfall we rode further up to another fall.|
Cameraman capturing moments of our arrival at the upper waterfall.
|The Director arrived with full expression which we should try to imitate him.....hehehe|
|Coming down from where we parked our bicycles.|
|What a beauty place, it was soul less and ideal for filming.|
|Moslim testing his photography skill.|
|Macro filming of a butterfly by enthusiasts.|
|So were the Director and his crewman.|
Thank you to Seang Nee for initiating this deed and surprising us with the plastic garbage bags and gloves. Let's clean the place apart from riding our bicycles.
|Please don't leave such trash the next time you go picnicking.|
|The only thing we could not do was to bring down the collected rubbish. The authority will be informed for this collection.|
|We Cycle We Clean & we feel good about it!|
|The crew had to draw out a special equipment to overcome the loud and continuous sound of water gushing from the upper stream.|
|The crew found a spot for interview.|
|Camera ....Action!!! the lady cyclists talk about their shares of this lovely sport of cycling.|
|Moslim, the veteran had a good time sharing his experience.|
|What's up Jason? Is everything ok?|
|The Director viewing from the small screen.|
|Bye bye Serendah Waterfall.|
|A surprise discovery of young puppies on our way to the waterfall and some of us came back to check the puppies after we have completed the waterfall scene.|
|Kim communicating with one of them.|
There were 5 of them all together. They came out to play with us after being fed by their mother.
|Our last visit was Serendah Sekeping and I am sure all of them had a good encounter with this beautiful place.|
|It's meal time we headed to Tomyam Serendah, the business was too good it was packed to the brim. They gave us a separate table in the garden.|
|The service was so slow and we were so hungry and wanted to eat badly.....fortunately the Leng Chee Kang came earlier to keep our mouths busy.|
Everyone seems busy with their handphones connecting to their own world ... they surely look busy while waiting for the food to come.
|It was a wonderful outing and a great experience in a film making especially on a cycling event.|
Get Fit Get Focus!
Happy Malaysia Day!!!
