Kuala Selangor Seafood | Kuala Sungai (Ah Yu) Restaurant @ Pasir Penambang

We thought we were  smart heading to Kuala Selangor on the first day of Eid Mubarak festival in Malaysia. Expecting a breeze drive on the road from Kuala Lumpur (KL), we planned to arrive by noon for a great lunch treat. Kuala Selangor is a coastal town on west Peninsular Malaysia, about an hour drive from KL (via LATAR Expressway) so we were looking forward to a feast of fresh and delectable seafood!

Breastfeeding Friendly Shopping Malls in Penang/Malaysia

Are you looking for breastfeeding friendly shopping malls in Penang? Yes, you hit the right page!

Breastfeeding or lactating, technically speaking is a natural activity to feed an infant or a baby. Established perhaps as early as the era of Adam and Eve, breastfeeding at times tend to attract people’s attention in public! Some people or passer-by however paint a bizarre look on their faces, indicating this ‘scene’ is something ‘new’ (indirectly too obsessed and keep staring), ‘abnormal’, ‘indecent’ or whatever they could name it or have in mind!

As far as the nursing mother is concern, I doubt she cares any less as long as her baby is full, contented and happy. Yes, motherhood comes in a package, aside from a bundle of joy, she also learned to be bolder, stronger, more efficient and the list goes on!

Penang Botanical Gardens | Waterfalls, Monkeys and Canon Ball Trees

Serving as the backyard to many Penangites, the Penang Botanic Gardens is favored as one thinks of an outdoor recreational venue to sweat. Even before the first ray breaks the day, city folks are flocking around this sanctuary, gearing up for hike. Trekking trails aplenty are branching out from the Botanic Gardens. As morning light sneaks through the forest’s canopy, these hikers return, drenching in sweat and wearing smiles on their faces. Serves as green lung to metropolitans, indulgence in all kind of physical activities especially as jogging and walking is a common sight. This was my memory of the Botanic Gardens that I was once visited every weekend.

When I revisited the Botanic Gardens recently, I started paying attention to what the Gardens is composed of. Lush greenery, unique flora, exotic fauna and home to the nature at its best. The sight of Canon ball trees (Couroupita guianensis), Pinang Palm (Areca catechu), Sengkuang tree (Dracontomelon dao) and Macaques (monkeys) are hardly missed by anyone. But that is not all about it, Penang Botanic Gardens also serves as a repository and houses collections of exotic and rare species of plants. So as one goes around the paved loops, Fern House, Aroid Walkway, Orchidarium, Cactus House, Begonia House, Herb Garden and Sun Rockery, (just to name a few) may cross your path. Wonderful treasures. Malaysia natural heritage, indeed!
