Another nice outing, 21-4-2013
About one year ago our friends Pat and Roger had guests over from Melbourne. They asked me if I had a suggestion for a day trip. Of course I had, and we had A Nice Outing.This month Cathy and Neil, mutual friends, were in Malaysia and I thought it might be a good idea to make the same trip with them. I sent them the link above and they agreed with my suggestion.

My friend Rani was also interested, so the four of us started as usual with breakfast in a mamak shop. Dosai this time. Cathy and Neil had printed the trip report, to make sure that I would not skip anything, LOL.

Our first stop was at the Serendah mosque, romantically situated at the edge of a tin mining pond. From there it was not far to the Seven Wells. Last year it was clear that these wells are not well maintained, this year it was even worse. A pity, as it could be a nice tourist attraction. Next was the Serenedah waterfall, many visitors, as it was a Sunday. A lot of water, we took a refreshing bath, tried to convince Cathy to do the same, but in vain..:-).

Before we had lunch, we visited the Sekeping Serendah resort, to show C&N the place. The location of the glass house is perfect, the architecture interesting, but I will never go back after a traumatic experience a few years ago. Read this report first before you consider to go there!

Then it was time for lunch, in the WK restaurant in Ulu Yam. A huge crowd, we were lucky that we could get a table quite fast. Nice food, not expensive.
Our last destination was the The Buddha Sakya Tharig Center, a quiet oasis in the jungle.

Then it was already time to go home. We did not stop at the Batu reservoir this time, because the ice cream seller was not there...:-)

A nice trip, I think my guests were satisfied with the program

More of a torture rather then a sanctuary
