Steamed Chicken Rice at Restoran Tuck Cheong, Pudu

It was an interesting morning pedalling from one corner to another searching and deciding what to have for breakfast. There was a lot to offer in Pudu and I fell for Tuck Cheong for a reason.
It was this that I was back to Restoran Tuck Cheong I have missed it all the time whenever I am here and this time I got it. Something different found in a dim sum shop, a steamed chicken rice with slices of mushroom and lup cheong (Chinese sausage).
It is only available on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and in limited come early on 2, 4 or 6 to avoid any disappointment.
An awful tea pot but unique and I reckon this is one of the characteristics of Tuck Cheong.

no 80 no go home

For the fun of it, I created an event to tour Klang Valley with an objective to hit 80km and if we do not achieve it we can not go home. Thank goodness we did it. And this was the route we took. You can also see it here for the detail tracking.
The long haul seekers were prepared not to go home, we met up and started at Lake Titiwangsa.
All geared up after a good breakfast and were ready to rock and roll.
The sky was clear and the sun was brighter than usual.
We took an anticlockwise direction of the loop and went through all kinds of road conditions.
Even railway crossing was not missed out in the ride.
Pit stop at Restoran Argyle, Ipoh Road for a rest, food & drinks. Majority of us ate the popular beef noodle.
The heat, the climb and the heavy traffic at certain stretches were major obstacles and resulted separation of the group in two occasions.
Fenn had a fall fortunately it was not serious she proceeded to ride.
We had to join the busy road of Kuala Selangor road for a short distant and took an interchange for Sri Damansara.
The foursome who went an extra distance in Sri Damansara when they missed a turning. The recovery and regrouping was tough they had to toiled with the intense heat coupled with a hilly climb.
This bridge crossing over LDP highway was very important to us as it was the most logical means to get to Sri Damansara from Kepong.
Shades were a luxury when cycling under a super hot sun.
Another crucial short cut between Sri Damansara and Damansara Perdana via a construction site by then we have already clocked 54km, 30km more to reached our desired mark.
We took the opportunity to visit bicycle shops to promote and create awareness of a current Bicycle Map Project by Cycling Kuala Lumpur.
We did it!!!
Well, we could treat this ride as a good training and preparation for the coming CFAL 6 in Penang with some similarities. I hope everyone enjoyed it. By the way I completed 87km from Titiwangsa while Jason did 100km from home.

Till then we shall continue to pedal.....

Gorgeous Noodles at Sang Kee, Lorong Yap Ah Loy, Kuala Lumpur

So it's back to Lorong Yap Ah Loy for some wonderful noodles after a pre OCBC ride. The fried beef noodle is one of the best in Kuala Lumpur.
Yee Mee is another choice sometimes we prefer a chewy then this noodle has it. 
My all time favourite Wan Tan Hor a.k.a Cantonese fried Koay Teow. I like this very much especially from Sang Kee.
The hungry riders for an awesome lunch.
This place is also popular for their Sang Har Mee though a bit pricey (big prawn ma) but if you are don't mind then why not... my previous posting of this place can be seen here.

Restoran Seafood Muhibbah Kg. Sg. Penchala

Chinese New Year fever was still on ... it was only the thirteenth day and a pre Chap Goh Meh ride was fixed up with a dinner at Restoran Seafood Muhibbah at Kg. Sg Penchala. We had a good ride at Kiara Hills and it's surrounding areas before we adjourned to the restaurant.
This dish was the talk of the evening, Ikan Miang and we had two of it at RM107.50 . The word "miang" means "hiao" in Hokikien.
Deep fried squids RM20.00 crispy and awesome.
Sayur Paku served in kelabu style was gorgeous at RM14.00
RM21.00 Ayam Selasih, another great dish.
Bitter gourd fried with egg is my favourite. RM15.00
We enjoyed the food very much, all the dishes were nicely "cleaned up" with no left over, an obvious sign of full satisfaction.Though the damage was slightly pricey but for Chap Goh Meh sake it was alright then.....

Mass Cycling During Hari Wilayah Persekutuan Celebration at Putrajaya

Probably this could be the biggest turn out for a cycling event and it was reported that 6,000 over cyclists were on the road on this particular day. Syabas!!!
Many of our cycling buddies met up at the usual place Millennium Monument. We split into two groups one went for the beautiful gardens and the other for the 50km ride from Putrajaya to Bukit Jalil & back. 
I chose the official event for a different flavour and here we were at the starting point.
It was a carnival with so many riders, all kind of bicycles, all kind of shape and sizes including the people. It was indeed a fantastic and colourful event.
The number was so big that at times we have to stop and push our bikes ... it's just not moving especially at bottle necks and drink stations.
Just look the crowd at the drink station.
The convoy was so big that at times the traffic has to be halted..... I felt sorry for the road users ... anyway it's an once a blue moon affair.  Thanks to the Traffic Police and Marshals for an excellent traffic management.
Bukit Jalil here we were .... it was time for a light refreshment and lucky draw but unfortunately riders like me does not have a share in it ... hehehe because I was a ghost rider.
This lorry was a sweeper, if you were unable to continue riding back to Putrajaya, they were at your service just load your bike into the lorry and air conditioned buses will waiting for you to ferry you back.
Let's get back to Putrajaya it was another 25km to go under the hot sun.
Irene Cho surprised herself by completing this strenuous 50km ride she was so happy about it and hope this will give her an extra oomph to do more. Congratulation!!! 
The sight of finishing the line was visible as the weather was getting hotter and hotter. What a relief.
Bomba was there to cool us down immediately after the finishing line.
 Some of my friends that I met during this this mega convoy to Bukit Jalil.

Before I could drive back home, I got a message to join my buddies (the group that went for garden viewing) for a lunch at Dengkil. We has a sumptuous lunch together at Kedai Makanan Sinki.
The route that we took for this memorable convoy from Putrajaya to Bukit Jalil and back to Putrajaya.
Unfortunately there was a fatal incident in this event. Shariful Mahasan Mazlan (34) from Klang collapsed upon finishing the line at 12 noon, he died an hour later due to breathing difficulty. May his soul rest in peace.
