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 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
