#2nd Day – Visiting Klang Heritage and Sunway Lagoon

January, 26th 2013. It was about 7.30 am, we left from Premiere Hotel to visit Klang Heritage, some ancient places in Klang, Selangor. Sure, having a group photo before leaving one place is a must. We are exactly crazy and happy bloggers, haha.

Group photo in front of Premiere Hotel

Soon after that, we left to some places of Klang heritage. The first place that we have visited is the railway station. This station was build long time ago, and now is still operated to take the passengers to some places in Selangor especially.

During in Klang railway station, we spent our time for taking photos and collecting some information, also asked related questing to some station staffs. After looking around, we decided to continue our journey. We have been to some ancient places. We walked through some old buildings.

Before, Gedong Raja Abdullah was used  as a place where the people saved their guns that time. Now this building is closed and was informed will make as a museum.

We continued walking and then we met one of Klang’s oldest fire station. This building was built in 1890s. Even the building renovated 3 years ago, but the concept of this building is still the same with the old style.

Hoaam… I feel little bit tired after visiting some of Klang heritage. We continued our journey to Galeri Diraja Sultan Abdul Aziz which in located in Bangunan Sultan Sulaeman, 41000 Klang, Selangor Darul Ehsan. Nice place, and I could find many unique things inside.

During in this building, we visited and saw many things. The guide also explained us the story of each thing we saw. We also watched the documentary film. It was a good moment being there. I could get some knowledge about Selangor historical.

Spending like almost one hour there, the team then decided to move to another Klang heritage, this time we went to the Lady of Lourdes Church which is located in Jl.Tengku Kelana, Klang Selangor. Then we continued our journey and stopped in an unique bridge which is could be use for motorbike and cars. Down part is used for motorbike, and above part is used for cars only.

All right, not too long there, we continued to Persatuan Penyokong Rumah Berhala Kwan Imm, Klang. It’s a place where the Buddhism worship. When we were there, we saw most of Buddhism were seriously worshiping. I was not lucky that time because my camera battery was low, and no pictures captured, yeah there is, but only one 😦

Collecting information, looking around and taking photos done. Now it’s time to move to Little India. When we arrived at Little India, firstly we had our lunch at Archana curry house which is located at Jl. Tengku Kelana No.62, Klang, Selangor Darul Ehsan, 41000 Malaysia. We have had a great lunch right there. Oh no pictures here, camera was charging 😦

No problem, let’s jump to another destination. After having a great lunch we walked through some building ans dropped by at Madura store. This store is selling the accessories. Each of us got free simple accessories from the owner of this store. Then we moved to Gayathiri store. A store which sales the Indian clothes. Again, each of us got free Kain Saree from the owner of this store.

All right, our journey to Klang heritage stopped here, and we moved to another beautiful place, it was Sunway Lagoon. Sunway Lagoon is an amusement park in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. It was officially opened by the Prime Minister Tun Mahathir bin Mohamad on April 29, 1993. Our bus kept going through the buildings and good traffic that time, and finally touched down in Sunway Lagoon.

We spent at least 2 hours and 30 minutes here. For the opening “water party”, we watched the Waterplexx 5D. It’s was amazing, more than real world. After watching, some of us did water activities, some went to extreme park, and some busy with taking photos.

Around 5.00 pm, we left to Arenaa Star Luxury Hotel in Kuala Lumpur. It took around one hour to get there from Sunway Lagoon because we have had a bad traffic jam. I felt asleep in the bus.. Huh really really tired. Finally we arrived at Arenaa Star Luxury Hotel.

Right before having hotel presentation, we had another presentation from AstuteXperience. This is one of sponsored which gave us free card and some vouchers for enjoying holiday in Malaysia ( for member only ). To get the membership card, we have to pay around RM150, but we were lucky that time because we got this car for free. In this case, you guys should know that AstuteXperience  is the partner of Arenaa Star Luxury Hotel and Vivatel Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. Without AstuteXperience, we would not able to enjoy and stay at these 2 hotels. Once again thanks a lot for AstuteXperience.

After saying hallo to them, all of us got on the bus and left to Première Hotel in Klang. It was rain on the way to Klang, and the rain was like cat and dog. Without conscious, i felt asleep and zzz…

Me and My Selangor Story

Ladies and gentleman, welcome back to my blog. Before I tell you about My Selangor Story experience, let me firstly tell you little bit about myself. I am Ridha Yusardi, you may call me Ridha, a 20 years old guy from Banda Aceh, Indonesia. I am a student in one of University in my home town. This blog post is about me and my Selangor story experience. I feel interest with My Selangor Story 2013 program because all the programs that they have here are all my hobby, such as traveling, blogging, adventuring, writing, sharing, learning a new thing, etc. Below are 2 photos while I was traveling.

Putra Jaya, Malaysia 2010

Singapore, 2011

My daily activity now is blogging. I have 2 kinds of blog, personal and business blog. The personal blog is used for all my personal experiences, while the business blogs are used for earning the money from the internet. I started learning blog on December 2010 with a one of Aceh Blogger Community member, whose name is Mymoen Doank. He is one of my best teacher in blogging. I love him very much. As the result, now I can earn some money from the internet. Most of my blogs are talking about the automotive news. I usually update my blog everyday. As an additional information, there are many ways to do to get the money from the internet ( online ). If you are interested to learn, feel free to contact me through the contact form. All right, then why do I want to join the My Selangor Story ( MSS ) 2013? The answer is because MSS is an event which taught me how to be a real person, how to live my life, how to make a new friendship, how to work in team, how to get involved in saving the nature / tourism place or even promote them, and many more.  I was one of the selected participant for MSS 2011. I love this event very much. I learned many things, I saw a new world, and I also met many unique and kindly friend. Here they are!

When we were at Awana Genting Highland

Let’s go back to 2011. Let me tell you about what did I feel after joining the MSS 2011. I was very satisfied and happy after joining this event because I got many new knowledge from here. The most important thing that i got from this event is about the friendship and good solidarity among others. Not only traveling and having fun together, we are also required to be active and make a good team work in every single activities that we had done.

This is what we called team work

The activities that we have  done are also interesting and challenging. In addition,  all the services that I got from the MSS 2011 committees and the sponsors were good and very satisfactory. I remembered when we were biking and kayaking together in Golden Palm Tree Hotel and Resort,  doing out bond, walking in the darkness of night in the jungle with the eyes closed, having barbeque party together at Pasar Malam, and sleeping in the long house at Awana Genting Highland. It’s one of the most unforgettable memories for me. It’s wonderful and truly amazing. Take a look at the photo of some activities we had.

That’s only a few photo of our activities, but I hope you will like it. The rest of the photo are still safely saved in my laptop. Can’t wait to collect more photos at My Selangor Story 2013 season. I wish i could. Before ending this post, let me tell you another thing about me. I am a person who love to be challenged with a new thing. This is another reason that’s why I want to join with this annually event. I am also a hard worker. As the proofs, I worked hard some months to learn about blogging. Also in 2011, I did many things and spent many times to join the MSS competition in order to get selected as one of the participants. This time I will work harder to get selected in MSS 2013, because I really want to see the beautiful and wonderful view of Selangor ( Malaysia generally) and feel the different on this event. If later I will be selected, I will do all my best to success this program. I promise to myself that I will work hard to get this golden chance. I love Selangor and I wish i will see you there.
