A trip to Kuala Selangor

The trip to Kuala Selangor happened pretty spontaneously. My colleague just sent me a text on Saturday's morning asking me whether I would be interested to join her and her boyfriend for a trip to Kuala Selangor. Without any hesitation, I replied 'Yes'.

The look:
Vintage blouse from Vintage Packstocks (now known as anaabu)
Thrifted belt
Thrifted bag (hidden)
Flare shorts
Studded sandals

On our journey to Kuala Selangor, we spotted an orchid nursery and decided to check it out. Just look at the pretty orchids...

We arrived at Malawati Hills, late in the afternoon. Instead of walking up the hills, we decided to take the tram to go up the hills after checked with a local their if the hills are too hilly to walk up. The queue was pretty long but we waited patiently with the rest of the crowd.

The lighthouse

Besides the view of the Malacca Straits from the hill, these cuties are another attraction. Visitors would buy food and feed them. The babies are in golden yellow colour but once they have grown into adults, they would be grey-ish silver.

Poisoned well

Instead of taking the tram again, we walked down and it was not a difficult walk at all. Perhaps, nowadays people are too depending on vehicles. Passed by this poisoned well. It was used to poison traitors by placing the individual inside the well and put poison into the well water. The level on the water is up to the chin of the individual. Eee...

Today is a public holiday, in lieu of Labour Day (1st May) which was on Sunday. So no Monday blues today. Yay!! Hope to catch up on my sewing. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Happy Monday and have a good week ahead.
