SUNGAI PELEK, SEPANG, - The 3rd Kuala Lumpur Company Boys' Brigade visited the 1st Sepang Company Boys' Brigade at their home grounds in Sepang. The trip was a fun filled one (well at least for me it was!).
At 8.00am, every 3rd KL member falled-in so that attendance could be taken before leaving for Sepang. Sepang is located on the westcoast of the Malaysian Peninsula and is home to not only Malaysia's most modern Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) but also home to the newly built Golden Palm Tree resort.
At around 9, we got on the bus and departed for our destination, Sepang. We arrived slightly more than an hour after departing Kuala Lumpur. The surrounding atmosphere was very intriguing as it was very different from the one I was used to back in KL.
Our first stop was the Sungai Pelek Chinese Methodist Church where 1st Sepang has their regular meetings. We spent about 2 hours there making new friends and were given refreshments, courtesy of the 1st Sepangites. We then left the church and followed our new guides, of which were 1st Sepang members. After another half an hour, we arrived at the beach. WOO-HOO! (general feelings of most of the 3rd KL members). We proceeded to disembark the bus and onto the beach. Next, a game to promote fellowship between our two companies - we played a sand castle/fortress building competition.
The following stop was at a factory which produced crackers and tit-bits off seafood base. Though I found it a little dirty, it was actually quite interesting. Some went on to buy snacks and drinks to refresh after a long day of travelling.
Our last stop was at a mushroom farm resort located right along the beach which featured a restaurant that stretched out all the way over the sea. We listened to a worker as she tried to explain all the different sorts of mushroom that was harvested there. It wasn't long till the adventurous few found out about the restaurant that was being showered in sea water because the impending storm out at sea had caused the waves to become frighteningly big and yet all so seemingly fun. Within minutes half of the group had decided to stand right beside the edge and dare the sea to shower them wet with sea water.
It all seemed to pass so fast, in a blink of an eye it was time for us to head home. On the way back most of us fell asleep as it had been a tiring day. We arrived back in Kuala Lumpur safe & sound and on schedule.
