Friday, May 04, 2007Kuala Selangor - seafood and fireflies
I paid a visit to Kuala Selangor during the long holidays, as part of our CG trip. Our plans were to have dinner before going for the firefly tour that the place is famous for.
We picked one of the numerous seafood restaurants around the area to satisfy our hunger. In the end we found this restaurant tucked in one of the more secluded spots by the river. Judging by the number of customers it had, we thought it wouldn't turn out bad.Restoran Kuala Selangor
Our spread for the day consisted of sotong, prawns, 'ha gou', lala, 3kg of crab and 2 plates of veggie. For 7 people, it seemed like a lot of food. The portions were not small either and we had doubts at first on whether we could finish it at all.The seafood was good; prawns, sotong and crab were fresh and succulent. The veggie was also a favourite. After some hard work and cleaning up, we managed to prevent any of the good food from going to waste.Mission accomplishedThe bill came up to less than RM200, which was quite worth it. Downright cheap if you compare to what the seafood restaurants in PJ charge.
We then continued our trip to the popular firefly tourist spot, where according to the notice boards, 'it is believed to be one of the only places in the world where fireflies gather'.
And they didn't come cheap either. The fireflies, I mean. Accidentally squash a bugger while trying to hold them will cost you RM1000.
There were not many fireflies around that night, probably because there was a full moon. According to our boatman, the best time to visit is when there is no moon and after the rain.
Tried to capture those that were on display but here's what I ended up with.
Pitch black darkness.
Well, that concludes my trip to Kuala Selangor. It was a fulfilling one, if not interesting.
