This is one of the most discussed home stay on recently. The place locate at Jeram, somewhere between Klang and Kuala Selangor, takes within 2 hours to reach if you are not lost.
IT was built with double decked office cabins that often seen in construction site. With an extra top roof covered and air conditioner installed in each room, there are no worry for the heat.
As soon as we arrive and settled our room, the owner inform us to gather for an outdoor walk. One of the activity provided is a tour into mangrove and observe its unique ecosystem.
The small crab is changing shell from one to another.
Tiny colourful crab with imbalance size of arms, a large left chela and a small right chela.
Rising tide happened on noon and the sea water flew in massive root of mangrove plants.
Next activity, 15 minutes cycling of village road to the beach nearby.
Scenery here is stunning, too bad didn’t bring tripod and wide angle camera lens.
Right after cycled back from the beach, we were told to get ready for a boat ride to observe on birds that stay at mangrove area.
Local fisherman caught on big Jellyfish, told by father of homestay, these will not be sold in Malaysia market, it will be export to countries such as Japan and Korea.
Lots of this species can seen around mangrove especially on the river side.
White Mangrove Crane
saw at least 4 eagles are flying around
After these 3 continuous activities, we are pretty exhausted and hungry.
These are the supper we ordered because of dinner portion are not enough for big eaters like us.
One thing to take note, make sure the your booking days does not intersect with another big group, else owners will squeeze two days programs into one, and turn the suppose leisure become a tiring day.
Unfortunately, second day of our weekend trip was joint by big group of local primary school students. Then, it was very obvious that owners are busy for preparation since Saturday and we were kinda left aside especially on the next day.
Breakfast on 8:30am is too late for Early birds like us, so we cycled to entrance road of home stay (that connect to main road, with Kampong Sungai Janggut signboard), there is a malay store offer plenty choices of breakfast, such as fried rice noodles, kuih and roti-canai.
There are nothing much to do on second day since we done all of it on day one. Cycled to the beach again and left a signature on the cabin before we left.
No doubt this is a relaxing place, imho, it is more suitable for family with kids. There are no TV, karaoke system or urban entertainment here, just a quiet peaceful night you will have, suggest on bring cards or board game to spend spare times. Details of home stay as below:
Vegetarian Steamboat! Yes, one of the rare vegetarian restaurant that provide proper steambot experience, thanks to the owner bringing it into Mahkota Cheras. There is another sister shop with same name locate nearby that provide a la carte, check on photo above and address below to ensure you found the correct one.
Consider myself a regular customer of the restaurant since my parents and partner love to dine in here.
There are four choices of steamboat soup: miso, tomyam, herbal and clear soup (清汤).
My favourite dish, Chinese Toon Fried Rice, though there are peoples that don’t like the taste. I highly recommend it, as according to the owner, the chinese toon is fresh since it planted locally.
Ordered few side dishes, includes Rojak, fried Yong Taufu and Vietnamese Spring Rolls.
Total cost of RM 74.20 for the our lunch meal, RM 19.90 for a set of Steamboat. We ordered too much, which actually overwhelm for 4 person. I give a rating of 8.2/10, for plenty of parking space, quiet relaxing environment and friendly staffs. Restaurant information as below,
Been want to try a cadence sensor for sometime, but the price for Suunto cadence is out of my budget. Thanks to Eric Liew for introduce an alternative to me, the Cateye ISC-11 cadence/speed sensor. Got it from Joo Ngan Son Bicycle at Uptown Damansara for RM 160.
Check “thisisant.com” for the compatible devices for Cateye ISC-11 cadence/speed sensor, it can be pair with 133 products as listed.
Thought of not to put on speed sensor because of the Gps was included in Suunto ambit, but only realised speed sensor can be use for indoor spinning on turbo trainer.
Installation is kinda tricky and give me headache. After consult from Eric Liew, it works perfectly now.
Steps as below:
i) install the device by following the manual on box
ii) press middle button of Suunto ambit for few second -> choose “pair” -> select “bike pod”
iii) give it a few spin when pairing, it should pair successfully
Tested on 85km ride on this morning, working good as it should.
Was on the way to KLIA2, stucked in short traffic jam on SKVE (South Klang Valley Expressway) and this is the cause.
It happened on last year, 29/11/2014 morning 10:42, location near Kajang on South Klang Valley Expressway.
Not everyday to see such interesting case happens, luckily the horse didn’t hit my car though. Guess car below is the owner of the horse since it parked in middle of road.
