By on October 2, 2008

It was a good trip as our family members could gather and fellowship with one another. The first place that we went was Pantai Remis near Kuala Selangor where the kids went to the beach to catch small crabs. The place had been abandon for quite sometime (may be due to lack of tourists) and since there is no basic facility we stayed not long at the beach. The next stop was in Bukit Malawati (Malawati hill) where we could see the nearby land from on top of the hill. There were lots of Cannons at the hill and here is the story of Bukit Malawati

“During the 19th century, there was a fort built on Bukit Melawati The purpose of this fort was to defend the state of Selangor from its enemies which came from the river mouth. Sultan Ibrahim Shah, the second Sultan of Selangor that reigned from the year 1778 until 1826 instructed that a fort be built at the peak of Bukit Melawati for defence. The purpose of building this fort was an effort by Selangor to avoid attacks from the Dutch. As the Dutch was trying to capture Johor – Riau and Selangor had strong relationship with the government of Johor and Riau, the Sultan of Selangor was afraid that the Dutch would retaliate and attacked Selangor.

The fort was built with solid stones arranged closely and almost half of Bukit Melawati was built with stone pillars and decorated with several cannons. In order to avoid erosion of the hill, raintrees were planted. The fort has a big entrance about 3 meters wide facing the east and has a staircase leading to the courtyard. From the courtyard if you go down the staircase which consisted of twenty steps made of solid stones it will lead you to a small hill called Melawati Hill. This entrance has been used by the Sultan and other dignitaries to hold their ceremonies.”

There are also a light house and a place where many visitors feeding the monkeys. After that we went to the nearby Kuala Selangor seafood restaurant to take our lunch. Since the place have lots of sea products, we went to those shops after taken our lunch. Later we drove to Kampung Kuantan and stop by a while just to check what time the boat service start to bring visitors to see fire flies. We did not wait as the person in charge said that the boat service start at 7.00pm. We decided to call it a day after my kids played at the playground nearby.

On our way back we went to Ijok where there was a restaurant that was famous for its begger chicken recipe. One have to book first before you could eat there and since the restaurant have some extra, we were served with the famous food-yummy and delicious!
