today, it is an extended holiday to make up for the public holiday which fell on sunday. so i took the opportunity to go for a little adventure dragging along my brothers and a few kids who are raring to go for some adventures of their own as well on sunday. sunday was chosen because the 'adventure' that we wanted to go to was only available at weekends and i needed time to recover on monday. hehehe....old dy ah.
the adventure that i had chosen was skytrex adventure at taman pertanian bukit cahaya seri alam in shah alam.
10 of us went for this trip and all 10 survived. hahaha....well, it was called extreme challenge and of course this old body of mine was challenged to the extreme lah. but don't worry, i was not the only one. my brother told me his legs were shaking at a few of the challenges as well. muahahaha.
we gathered at the park at 12 noon as our booking was at 1pm. there was so much shade in the park that you don't have to worry about getting a tan.
everyone who worked at skytrex was really friendly and helpful. kudos to the amiable services.

after receiving a briefing from the instructor, we had to climb the ladder to the first platform. everyone had doubts when seeing the high platform and all the steps in the ladder. but once the agile teenagers in our group made the ascend, there was no turning back. you did not want to embarass yourself or be labelled a chicken right?

we finished all the challenges in about 2 hours. everyone was drenched in sweat but all in the name of fun. everyone had a good time but no one said they would go back again to do them. hhahaha.....i would highly recommend skytrex adventure to those love to have fun and to test their agility. go with your friends and encourage and push each other to complete each challenge. it is definitely worth it.
we left the park when we completed our challenges as rain was approaching. we headed to my brother's place in kota kemuning for a shower. phew. luckily we did not have to depend on the toilet in the park. there were barely any facilities to take a shower at the park. so inadequate.
it rained cats and dogs as soon as left the park and we were glad that we were dry in the cars.
after the shower, all ten of us took except one, it was off to dinner. everyone was already famished and complaining of growling stomachs.
i did my homework and had already planned the day's itenerary, so with the help of waze (a gps like application on the phone) we successfully made our way to the chosen eatery- seng huat bak kut teh in klang.
we would be circling klang town aimlessly if not for waze. thank you so much!
the restaurant was crowded when we were there and it seemed to be a popular eating haunt for bak kut teh lovers. my brother ate 4 big plates of the rice.
after all stomachs were satisfied, it was off to the last destination of the day- i-city in shah alam to see the city of lights. i had never been there before yesterday, so yesterday provided a splended opportunity to make that visit. the rain had stopped by then and the night was quite windy there.
there were many theme park games in the city but gosh, they were expensive. be prepared to spend your money like water if you bring a few kids with you.
we did not play any of the game, did not enter snow world nor go to the water park, instead, we settled for trick art museum. rm5 per person.
there were a lot of 3D paintings and if the camera angle was right, you would get some realitic and interesting shots. do enjoy these fews i have posted.
have a good week.
