Spring Festival Luncheon

PSZQM Zhineng Qigong 2017 annual spring festival luncheon gathering at Dynasty Dragon Seafood Restaurant, Summit USJ on Sunday, 15 January 2017. The event was organized by USJ/Subang Jaya Centres.

It was an afternoon of great fun with good food, singing, dance and performances amid good camaraderie. Other than having an entertaining master of ceremony, the occasion was further liven up with the presence of the God of Prosperity, Choy San Yeh, who went round every table to distribute ang pow. There were many prizes for the lucky draws and the most attention-grabbing item was the grand prize – a 43-inch TV.

Ketam Food Outing on New Year's Eve

This is a different type of outing. It has nothing to do with the usual trekking or trail running in the mountains – we only have to work the stomach. The gastronomic delights trip at Klang and Pulau Ketam on 31 Dec 2016 was organized by Hooi Miin and SC Yong.

 The golden ketam (crab)

The group arrived at a famous bak kut teh restaurant in Klang at 9:30 a.m. After a delicious and delightful breakfast, we proceeded to Port Klang; then took a ferry from South Port Terminal to Pulau Ketam for a journey of 35 minutes. 
 Yeah! We are heading to the correct destination

Built above the water on piles, the restaurants and shops are lined on both sides of the walkway. We strolled around the areas shopping for local produces and visiting the stilt houses until it started to drizzle. We have our seafood lunch at 1:30 p.m. followed by coffee time, in time to catch the 4:00 p.m. ferry back to Port Klang. For a change, it was nice and fun going out with trekker friends for a different experience.

A word of caution: Do not park your cars by the side of the wide road marked with white line in front of South Port Terminal, Port Klang. Seemingly devoid of traffic and presence of other cars parked there, we followed suit. We received parking summons issued at 3:30 p.m. on a Saturday by the traffic police. On a positive note, our cars are safe from theft as there was enforcement. The fine: RM300 with early-bird cheaper rate.

This is rainy season but there is no water here for the boat to sail to the sea

Apik Hill Outing

Trekking at Apik Hill Cheras on a fine Saturday morning, 17 Dec 2016 ... the expected daily heavy rain only come at 3:30 p.m. The trails were crowded with trekkers. With the monsoon season where many of the mountains are prohibited for trekking until 31 Jan 2017, this is a good venue for outing.
