A chance to step my feet on Taiping land again after many2 years..It sure has changed a lot..Can hardly recognize the beautiful sights around..
Taman Tasik..a breathtakingly beautiful place in Taiping. bekas lombong sejak 1885.tapi now dah jadi cantik tak terkira with lots of huge trees .green plains .Look at these photos below and believe my words..A serene beauty you cant find elsewhere in Malaysia..
Taiping the wettest place in Malaysia ?.I think its true.It rained there most of the time.Tengok awan..gelap ja.then hujan..adoi..
After a long walk..sat down to take my breath..so quiet there.rasa macam I was alone in this wide world, what I heard was the chirping sound of the birds , the rustle of the leaves and the roar of the the tigers and the lions.
They were swimming in the water.heard his boots and they came very near the edge of the pond opening their mouths wide for the vege and fruits..sekali bagi makan 5 kilo sayur and buah..3 times a day! !
I cilok this photo of Kuala Sepetang town from google saja.but anyway just look at the sky..Gelap lagi...
Before heading home, we went to Kuala Sepetang.Known as Port Weld dulu. Kita belajar dalam history sekolah menengah dulu kan? Port Weld was quite busy dulu.and they have the first railway that connected Taiping to Port Weld.Walaupun it was only a for a short distance but history facts tetap penting dalam sejarah bangsa Malaysia.
Banners and posters about mee udang Kuala Sepetang merata-rata.So we tried mee udang MakJah.Nampak maju sebab banyak sungguh kerusi meja di situ and ada all races like the Indians, Chinese dok makan dengan seleranya.
A plate of mee udang harganya RM7.00.Memang la banyak udang di letak about 7 ekor.tapi bukan udang besaq.sederhana saja.
Tapi one thing.. I dont know about the others tapi mee tu pedasnya mak oi..just managed to telan mee saja.Kuah tak berani sentuh..pedasnya ! !.I think kalau my son in law Kay ada pun ,pun takkan boleh habis makan mee tu walaupun dia seorang yang memang suka pedas..
Faten ordered a plate of udang goreng tepung.Memang rangup.Sat saja dah tinggal pinggan saja.
I tengok one group of Chinese dok hirup kuah sruuuup sruuuup..maybe depa tu biasa makan pedas kut.On the way home anak2 dok complain perut rasa tak sedap..ish pedas mee dah ganggu perut..
The clouds turned dark again..it rained heavily again for kali keberapa..Kesian orang Taiping.Mesti banyak kerja tergendala kalau setiap hari hujan sentiasa turun macam ni.Like what the receptionist at the hotel said..
"Sini kalau nak pergi mana2 mesti sebelah pagi kak, kalau petang dia suka hujan....." Its true..but bukan petang saja.pagi pun hujan juga walapun a short drizzling here and a short downpour there.
Anyway it was a memorable day to remember in Taiping although we did not have the opportunity to explore every corner of it.
