Joyride Trip to Kuala Selangor (Part 1)

After leaving the Hytex Warehouse Sale, Papa headed back towards the Kepong town centre direction. From there, we came across the part of the road where you can either head to Sungai Buloh on the left or Kuala Selangor on the right. Part of Mommy wanted to go to Sungai Buloh because recently, Mommy has gotten the urge to plant vegetables for fun and for own consumption. So Mommy was keen to check out prices of vegetable seeds and packets of black soil. Another part of Mommy wanted to go to Kuala Selangor because the last time Papa and Mommy went there was on the day before Juan Or was born, which means we have not been to Kuala Selangor for 1 year 2+ months already! Finally, Mommy decided to go to Kuala Selangor since we were already far away from Sri Petaling, Juan Or had slept in the car and awaken already, and the time was 11.15am, so might as well make the best of the outing.

After passing through Rawang, finally we reached Pasir Penambang in Kuala Selangor at about 12.15pm. Pasir Penambang is a fishing village and houses many Chinese 'tai chow' seafood restaurants. Some restaurants here operate both in the afternoon and night and some in the night time only. So we headed straight to a restaurant first since it was already lunch time. The restaurant we went to was the same restaurant Papa and Mommy went to on the day before Juan Or was born. (Mind you, it was only about 3 hours after eating in this restaurant when Mommy's water bag burst!).

Just a sidetrack here: During the last visit to Pasir Penambang, Mommy went to the Pasir Penambang wet market to buy fresh tiny lalas - 1kg for RM1.50, to stir-fry at home. After buying the lalas, Papa and Mommy went to eat lunch in this restaurant before going back to Sri Petaling. We reached home was about 1pm plus. Then, at about nearly 3pm, Mommy went to the kitchen to prepare to cook the tiny lala. Just before stir-frying, Mommy went to the toilet to urinate first. That was when Mommy's water bag burst! Immediately after that, Papa rushed Mommy to the hospital and the next day at 4.35am, Juan Or was born. So in the end, Mommy never got the chance to eat those tiny lala!

OK, back to the track again. The restaurant we went to was Restoran Tian Wai Tian. Papa noticed that this restaurant seems to be frequented by the local Pasir Penambang residents because we noticed there always seems to be a group of senior citizens having their brunch there at any one time we eat there.

(Juan Or was waiting for the food to arrive.)

(Never mind, pose for Mommy first while waiting for the food....)

(.....and another pose for Papa to capture!)

Anyway, the food didn't take long to be served. Here was what Papa ordered:

(Kong poh mantis prawn. The mantis prawn was well-coated with the sauce, and the insides were moist. Very tasty! Can't remember the exact price of this dish.)

(Hot plate oyster omelette. The sauce was something like sweet and sour and the amount of oyster given was a lot. Very tasty! Cost RM13.)

(Sweet potato leaves stirr-fried in belacan - very tasty and fragrant! RM5 only!)

(Kam heong lala. The lala flesh was not sweet at all. Probably the sweetness was affected by the storage. Can't remember the exact price of this dish.)

All in all, Papa paid RM40.50 for the entire meal (reasonably cheap!) which includes 2 plates of rice and a pot of Chinese tea. Also, we were not charged any government tax or service charge.
