    There are not many flowers at the Sg Congkak Forest Reserve, however, the few that are there, were quite lovely. I noticed this red flower at various parts of the forest, and noticed that its tiny flowers would often fall right into the river, and the river's current would bring it downstream.Do look out for the common water striders, dragon...

  • For a treat: Stop to taste the...

    It has been a great outing to the river, and we were pleasantly tired and more than a little hungry. On the drive back, we passed by many durian stalls. I asked my husband to stop the car, but he wasn't keen. He loves durians, but is very particular and would only trust his regular durian supplier. Nevertheless, the kids and I were famished, so we...

  • Ununsual day-out for the girls

    City folks such as me and my children, rarely spend much time out in the "jungle". I planned this trip out to Sungei Congkak Forest Reserve because I wanted a special day that they would remember. Due to the hot Malaysian weather, our weekends are typically spent at shopping malls or hidden away at home catching up on some sleep in the...
