Heritage historical tour @ Hulu Selangor , Malaysia

Day 1

It was a raining day 🌧️☔ with sharp departure from Matic KL to Serendah @ 7.40am, the name Serendah in Malaysia’s national language ~ Bahasa Malaysia reflects that this area is located at a low level

Went straight to Macau street, Serendah for breakfast. This is the only Macao street that remains now from the total 5️⃣ Macao streets in the world 🌎 ie. Kuala Lumpur, Serendah, Malacca, Penang & Singapore. This street will be a food street of Serendah in the future as shared by Mr Andy Pah during lunch of that day

.

Highly recommended the tea egg dessert served at Kedai Kopi Yee Kee. The egg well boiled in sweet tea soup, yum yum 😋👍🏻 SiennyLovesDrawing & her friend were lucky to enjoy this well known dessert @ 9am. It normally ready to serve around 10am. She loves this hot dessert as tasted it for the 1st time. A must try ya 😀 They were sharing a table with a retired couple, had a good chat with them, a happy breakfast

Then, visited the Hock Leng Keng Temple 双文丹福靈宫 which founded in 1869. It’s a 150 years old Taoism temple with a museum to visit to learn the history of this temple & Serendah. It used to be a medical temple for the village residents, especially kids here. SiennyLovesDrawing got impressed by how well this temple is being maintained till now

.

Met officials, Mr Andy Pah from Balairaya Serendah & Mr Lee, the acting president of Hokkien Association. Listened to their explanation about this old temple history, as well as Serendah history

Address📍: https://maps.app.goo.gl/uT7XprLrkTp3fjFE9

Then, group photos & enjoyed hosting tasty yummy lunch & chit chat together with the Hokkien Association members @ Restaurant 218

During the lunch, Mr Andy Pah informed that the Temple Street of Serendah actually with 7️⃣ temples & some with over 100 years. That’s really full of historical values. He also shared about the ongoing efforts of developing Serendah as a lifestyle tourism destination. It will be developing as a tourist park so each visitor here can spend at least 2 hours

Next @ llmio Cafe 古毛人茶餐室 to meet ADUN KKB Madam Lee Kee Hiong & cafe owner, Ms Shu Xuan

Once stepped in, personally she loves the dining & tea time vibes in this cafe, especially love the antiques collections exhibited here

The cafe founder actually studied in Taiwan & decided to be back to her hometown & started this cafe & also a homestay 欢喜居 ☕🏘️

Enjoyed a juicy story telling session about KKB from Ms Shu Xuan & started the heritage walk with her. SiennyLovesDrawing also personally suggested to her to inform the relevant authorized person of Galeri Sejarah KKB to consider adding all the gallery info exhibited in English so foreign visitors will have a chance to read & understand the KKB history from this gallery. Many foreign travellers love to visit the museum of a local place on a travel journey, so it’s important for this gallery to add in the English version of all exhibited information

Last stop of this heritage tour @ Sungai Selangor Dam. It was completed in 2002 flooding the valley of Gerachi Jaya & Pertak off KKB & resettling the native indigenous communites that lived here to a 🆕 nearby village

It’s a picturesque dam, hence explained that it’s a popular stopover for photos & videos, also fishing activities. It welcomes its visitors to its recreational park to appreciate the picturesque view of the massive lake where a spillway drops water to control the dam’s level

You may visit the Splash Info Center which is located along its main road that offers a gallery & information about this dam project. It’s with 🆓 admission from Tue to Sun, 9am to 4pm

Day 2

Breakfast & enjoyed morning walks around the hotel stay

Hulu Selangor tourism products updates & sharing session by KKB Paragliding Team & MITA Vice President, Ms Min Leong

Went shopping for some local Ulu Yam products at the Swee Yen Retail 瑞园商店. Her travelmates have shared that the handmade bihun here is tasty from their prior shopping experience here

It also owned a restaurant that serves famous Ulu Yam noodles, SiennyLovesDrawing has not personally tried it, so unable to share whether nice or not from her experience ya

Address📍: https://maps.app.goo.gl/u1dpyVks3vckzYnk8
Online official store: https://shope.ee/9UNlYpBeld

At the same row, you may check out the Ulu Yam Noodles Making Shop named Five Q Brothers Enterprise, this is the only factory based & open to the public to see how they make the noodles in Ulu Yam. The other 4 noodles producers are home based

Guess what❓⁉️

The noodles here have superb elastic, you can just keep polling the noodles & it allows you to pull very very long. Amazing handmade skill lies behind the noodles dough 👍🏻

You may shop for their fresh making noodles from here. If it keeps in the fridge, it will last for 2 months. If in freezer, up to 2 months

SiennyLovesDrawing has captured the Ulu Yam noodles making TikTok clip for sharing 📹🌐

Happy satisfied tummy with superb tasty lunch @ Restaurant Aik Khoon

She loves almost all the dishes served at lunch here, highly recommended the Tom Yam prawn in coconut, beer stout chicken wings, salted egg fried pumpkin & tofu

She really enjoyed the sweet tom yam with great 👍🏻 coconut fragrance of this prawn dish, absolutely tasty each sip of the soup while chewing on the fresh prawn 🦐😋👍🏻 If you’re not a spicy fan, this dish is not very spicy with the well blend of coconut sweetness

Ohh my…Almost everyone on the table loves the beer stout chicken wing, it was well deep fry, not oily at all & well coated with beer stout, so delicious tasty to enjoy every bite of it

Honestly she can just none stop eating the salted egg pumpkin, it’s so addictive tasty 😋🤤 Moreover she is a salted egg lover

Their own made tofu absolutely smooth tasty to enjoy , she loves the appetizing gravy with a pinch of wine fragrance & taste

Superb happy tummy from this lunch

Address📍: https://maps.app.goo.gl/UBf6zBnoXsvWSVsx7

World of Phalaenopsis ~ Beautiful orchids farm visit & cafe. From the satisfied lunch, she didn’t dine in this cafe, instead she enjoys walking & exploring this place, got amazed with many beautiful blooming orchids plants in many different colours here

During her visit, she had a good chat with the orchids care worker & understood that the yellow orchids are precious one as not many, compared to those white & purple ones. It’s quite easy to take care the plants by spraying water few times a week

There are also lotus pond & ducklings pond. The kids can enjoy feeding the swimming ducklings with just RM1️⃣ for the feeding food packet

Last stop at Seven Wells for photos & heading back to KL, home sweet home 🏡 to conclude this 2️⃣D1️⃣N trip at Hulu Selangor, Malaysia 🇲🇾. It’s also known as Perigi Tujuh Serendah. It’s a popular tourist spot in Serendah & it was built to resist floods in Serendah. To SiennyLovesDrawing personally, this is an important heritage spot to visit to learn more about Serendah history & the advancement of technology at that time for flood preventing

However, during this visit, she is sad to see the rubbish & not well taken care of this place. Special thanks to 1 of her travelmate, Ms MC who have shared the before photo captured from her visit in Aug 2020 that the Seven Wells were all functioning with cleaner surrounding at that time

At present, there are 2 wells that no longer with water 💦 Sigh…She wishes the relevant authorities can actually take some appropriate action to well maintain this beautiful site as Malaysia is slowly resuming tourism activities at the moment. Also to have all Seven Wells all functioning well again as its purpose of preventing unpredictable flood in the future

Address📍: https://maps.app.goo.gl/6HTCgm2Mus5KNdHh9

This trip, she has not visit to Alor Lempah aka Ampang Pecah. It’s a picnic 🧺 site is just like a mini “Niagara Falls” in Malaysia 🇲🇾, no need to fly 🛫 to USA 🇺🇲 ya 😁

It’s actually a man-made weir & used for flood mitigation & it spans across the width of the river. If it rained the night before, the water volume is high & with impressive water view here 😍
