Kuala Kubu Bahru White Water Rafting

White water rafting is always one of my favourite adventure. I enjoyed the rapid water and the adrenaline rush just like riding a roller coaster. It may not able to do 360 degrees turn but it can do a thrilling 180 degrees turn which is scary enough. I have been to Sungai Padas  (Grade III-IV), Kiulu River  (Grade I-II), Sungkai River  (Grade I-II),  Kamper River  (Grade I-III) and this is the Selangor River which is located at Kuala Kubu Baru or better known as KKB. KKB white water rafting is rated as Grade III-IV.  There is a water dam which is called Empangan Sungai Selangor. This trip is only available when this dam releases its water. Otherwise this river is too shallow for rafting. In another words, it is seasonal. There is no specific month on when they will release their water. However, it is highly likely they will do so when Selangor state is running low on water supply. The best is you ask your tour operator about it before you arrange for the trip. It n

Yamaguchi Fish Market, KL

Yamaguchi Fish Market is inspired by fish market in Japan which allows customer to choose seafood from the market and they will prepared for them either in sushi or sashimi for them to eat fresh. That's the original way how it was started but time goes by competition is getting harder, many came out with different idea. So does Yamaguchi Fish Market to have it in a restaurant instead of a market. They have sushi bar for customers to appreciate the chef serving the food right in front of them. The seating are not a lot because mostly it has been placed by their tank to put their live seafood. They have their fresh seafood deliver twice a week and this is the first time I see how they packed their live lobster. That's the price of their live lobster. I wish one day I can eat a 5kg lobster. It would be the greatest dream I ever had. They had a lot of lobsters. There were 4 tanks full of lobsters which makes me wonder do they sell that many lobsters? That

Leaf & Co. Cafe, Petaling Street

Last week, I went to another "new" cafe which is known as Leaf & Co near Petaling Street. It is considered new to me because I really cannot keep up the pace of the cafe opening like almost everyday in Klang Valley.  What the cafe is doing is to remain the old looking interior with the old paint already chipping off and cement pasting everywhere. Even the floor is not marbled. How brilliant it is to maintain the retro look of it but not doing any renovation at all.  This is their smoking area which you can sit and relax looking at other people stuck in the jam. This is a kind of old architecture which is quite popular in the past which is have hole at the center of your house. It is really great to see a tree grows inside a shop but I do not know what will happened when it rains. However, I will still compliment the cafe owner for saving their renovation by keep this spot which gives extra brightness inside the shop. Even the tables and chairs are tho
