Yesterday was the first time I’ve ever blogged. And since then, there were many comments and positive remarks. So I decided since most of the comments were “where is this Sepang Goldcoast”, I’ve decided to devote an entire posting on Sepang Goldcoast (SGC).
I’ve already written about the historical facts on SGC. So you can now probably visualise a flotilla of ships, cruising by and laden with unspeakable treasures or spices. This is the Straits of Malacca for you.
The drive there is interesting. You can see many old pre-war shophouses along the way and if time permits, do stop by any of the coffeeshops for a cuppa. It’s really different from the ones you find in KL and cheaper too!
I’ll be attaching a few more photos and describe them here.
I’m not certain what sort of crabs these are but they are a sight to behold. Then there are even more colourful ones – greenish, bluish and purplish shells.
This is what makes SGC the ideal destination for my children. Instead of wasting time at home on the Internet or playstation – a trip to watch nature’s magnificence is truly rewarding!
I’ve also mentioned about the hydroball and flying fox. These are some of the activities SGC has in store as part of their ‘boot camp’ activities. SGC is targeting corporate clients for team-building purposes.
Apart from scampering around in the hydroball on the lake, you may take a leisurely paddle on the pedal-boat built for two. It’s not the main highlight but if you do pedal around eveningtime, you can feel the cool sea-breeze on your face, hear birds chirping and discern insect sounds. And if you keep quiet for awhile – you can even hear the tall trees whispering the secrets of the long gone voyagers.
For dinner, you have a choice. Eat at the dining outlets at SGC – Sunset Beach Restaurant or Steamboat Restaurant. Or try the local fare nearby. Both are equally good. However, I prefer dining at the Sunset Beach Restaurant as they have fine dining selection and great wines to choose from! Plus – the ambience, the soft music and the panaromic view of the sea is priceless!
At the Steamboat restaurant – well, steamboat is what they serve. But check out the small stalls outside where they serve authentic Malay food like Ikan bakar, Sotong bakar, Kerang bakar. If Uncle Johnny reads this he’ll comment “Crazy squid, crazy fish, crazy shellfish’. BAKA is Japanese for crazy or idiotic! Heeheee!
The traditional Malay and Chinese desserts are mouth-watering. Heck – wish I was there now!
The landscaped garden is marvellous. I remember taking several nice photos but for the life of me – I think I’ve deleted them from my SD card!
