KUALA SELANGOR in 24 Hours

Kuala Selangor!

I took leave from work today to attend a regular medical check-up at KPJ Tawakkal Specialist Hospital.
Since being hospitalised a decade ago for Hypothyroidism, a state in which the thyroid gland does not make enough thyroid hormone, I have been seeing the Rheumatologist every other month to check on my TSH, T4 and T3 levels.

Apart from being overweight everything checked out fine and we left KPJ Tawakkal Specialist Hospital for Kuala Selangor. A little over an hour later we arrived at the Pasir Penambang of Kuala Selangor.

Kuala Selangor is a coastal town located about 70 kilometres northwest from Kuala Lumpur. Situated where the Selangor River meets the sea, the small town of Kuala Selangor is known for its fresh seafood, historical sites, and natural hidden gems. Looking to experience their fresh seafood we walked into Restoran Makanan Laut Jeti. An hour or so later we emerged with our bellies for and took a stroll. Be sure to catch our previous video on our seafood lunch.

We then walked over to our budget hotel and checked into Hotel Le-Shore where we had booked a room for the night. Our room was originally RM93 a night (approximately USD/EUR20) but we overlooked the fact that it did not have a window. Being quite the claustrophobe I decided to upgrade our room to one with a window so we ended up paying an additional RM89 (approximately USD/EUR19).

I spent the afternoon organising the videos and photos we had taken earlier then took a short nap. We emerged later in the evening and walked over to River View Seafood Restaurant for dinner. Be sure to catch our previous video on our seafood dinner as well.

The next morning we woke up and had breakfast at Warung Dimyati, a stall famous for its Roti Canai Pelangi or multicoloured Roti Canai. I had the blue Roti while Cat tried the pink Roti and we both tried their "telur goyang" variant (two half boiled eggs placed on top). Together with a round of Milk Tea, a variety of local cakes and two packets of Nasi Ambeng (for lunch later) it came to a very reasonable RM45.50 (approximately USD/EUR10).

In case you're wondering Nasi Ambeng is a fragrant rice dish consists of white rice prepared with chicken curry or chicken cooked in soy sauce, vegetables, fried noodles, some salted fish, fried coconut flesh, and so on.

We then headed back to the hotel and checked out and enjoyed a leisurely drive back to Kuala Lumpur. We hope to come again one day with Brendan to visit the many historical sites that exists on Bukit Melawati, as well as fully immerse ourselves in the tourists’ attractions here like the Kuala Selangor Nature Park, Firefly Park, Sky Mirror, Blue Tears, and Eagle Feeding. Please stay tuned!
