Makan Trip over the long weekend!

For those who don’t know, makan is malay for eat.

My friends and I (5 of of us in total) wanted to drive to KL in November for a foodie trip but because of some unforeseen circumstances, we decided to shift it to last weekend instead. I’m still amazed by how we managed to coordinate everything in a week’s time and had an awesome time!

I shall not write too much in this post, but be warned first that this post mainly has food pictures and there is A LOT.

Let’s go!

1) A&W’s corney dog, trying it for the first time (usually I have the chicken). Still don’t get why everyone raves over A&W, it’s just another fast food joint to me.

2) Finally in Petaling Jaya and we had dim sum for lunch at Jin Xuan Hong Kong (锦选香港特极点心)! The prawns were so fresh ❤ And the siew mai is damn good too, haven’t had a good siew mai in a long long time.

3) SnowFlake Dessert – T and I shared this huge bowl that was bigger than my palm.

4) Dinner at 李雄记冷气酒家. Every dish is mouth-watering good!

5) Random close ups of 2 dishes haha.

6) Did you think we were done?! Seriously, don’t under-estimate us yo :p Ken brought us to a mamak, which is a place that sells indian muslim food. The cheese naan is da bomb! SG’s version is weak compared to this. And they even give us condensed milk to dip the naan in, how sinful is that? =o

7) Mango special & Lychee special.

8) And finally, our last meal for the FIRST day. Ice ka chang at a hawker nearby! Look at the number of spoons, teehee 😉

The next day, our plan was to drive to Kuala Selangor for seafood, paddy fields and fireflies at night.

9) On our way there, we spotted a cendol drive-through. So cool! Of course we have to try, it was actually quite good considering the fact that I’ve never liked cendol, but this one is just right for my taste buds 😀

10) Reached the seafood place for lunch. Having lunch by a river is always nice, because of the constant wind. I love to smell the salt in the air ^^

11) Part 1 of our meal. Only the calamari stood out, the rest was just meh. The bamboo clams were kind of stinky so we had to send them back to the kitchen!

12) The 2 types of crabs we ordered. Nothing fantastic either, some of the crabs didn’t seem fresh and my friends agreed too.

13) Random self shot. Sunnies from Tokyo, I miss that place so much!

14) And finally we reached the paddy fields. We didn’t know what stage the paddy fields would be in, just planted or, but thankfully it was all green and pretty, waving to us with the help of the breeze.

15) With the love of my life 🙂

16) Went to the beach (Redang) and we all took photos with this sign. 适耕庄!

17) Some obligatory photos of the beach, very similar to Singapore’s beaches so it didn’t catch my eye at all. I enjoyed the mangoes that were sold by the beach more.

18) Me being happy.

We then headed to Bukit Melawati for its light house and monkeys.

19) Silver leaf monkeys sitting around not bothered by the numerous tourists snapping away.

19) A long-tailed Macaque (be careful of them! they can get rather aggressive) and the light house.

And then we headed for more food. We had more activities planned so didn’t eat as often as the first day but each meal was so filling.

20) Beggar’s Chicken. The meat was so tender, and very flavorful! My favorite dish 😀

21) 8-treasure rice and pork knuckle.

We then headed to Kampung Kuantan to watch the fireflies, or know as kelip-kelip in malay. The name is so cute, the whole night I tried to use it as often as I can lol. I don’t have any photos because cameras just can’t seem to capture the lights but it will be something remembered in my heart forever. Although I do not want to remember the fear of being on a sampan when it’s very dark on the river with the possibility of crocodiles appearing.

The next day is Sunday, which is when we are due to return to Singapore. But not before having more food! This time, we drove to Klang for bak kut teh. The original place that serves bak kut teh is some place called Seng Huat Bak Kut Teh but Ken’s auntie said that it isn’t very hygienic so we went Pao Xiang instead. Later we learnt that Singapore has Pao Xiang too at Marina Square! Should probably head over there to try and see if there’s any difference in taste.

22) Our last meal in Malaysia. Bak Kut Teh!

And that marks the end of our food adventure, and we will definitely be planning more in the future! Not near though, we need to do some serious dieting first hehe. 

Thanks for reading and hope I didn’t make you too hungry :p xx
