Plus this was the first trip (and still is) that I've traveled with my in laws'. Even though it was not somewhere very far, but I think it needed to be recorded down on the blog.
Last year on July, SR's cousin, Q (her name is too difficult to spell so I just go by her first name's first later lah) invited the whole family to KL for her wedding. My father in law said the whole family should attend and then the next day we will go on a short family trip. Everyone agreed except for my youngest brother in law who couldn't apply for leave from his work 😕
What did I tell you about being pretty? Hahaha~
My date was looking dashing as well 😍
He was actually busy looking for the way coz we got lost. His wife tho is busy taking selfies hahaha.
We were almost late but thank god we wasn't too late for the wedding ceremony.

Happy to meet up with some friends from the PJ church 😊

Second row (left to right): Jayne, le moi
There are a few other friends but I've forgotten to take pics with them.
First OOTD on the blog? Maybe I did lah years ago. Can't remember d.
The theme was black and white...or something like that lol.
Laced shorts (worn inside): from Taiwan 路边摊 (roadside shop)
Platform shoes: Rubi
Clutch: VaVoom Bangkok
Gold leaf earrings: H&M (I think)
Maybe I should do more OOTDs after this. Then I'll learn how to dress better every day lol.
See what I mean? So rare of him to take so many pics with me. Looks so happy summore.
So yeah, we left the wedding earlier even before the dance floor began coz my father in law wants to sleep d
On the second day, we woke up and met up with my in laws while they checked out from their hotel. They returned home in Melaka after our one day trip to Sekinchan.
The food was unexpectedly good. Except that half the veggies beside the nasi kerabu aren't my favorite. So I didn't eat those. But other than that, everything was good. Definitely will go there again if I go KL.
For those who are interested to try out Hayaki (the name sounded more like a Japanese restaurant lol), here's the details:
Hayaki Damansara Uptown
1, Jalan SS 21/37, Uptown Damansara Utama, 474000 Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia
After lunch, we started our journey off to Sekinchan.
Met a cute little buddy on our way
I kept calling the monkey that SR got scared that it'll run into our car hahaha.
I love traveling up towards the north. It feels more "nature"-like than traveling south.
The first thing we did when we reached Sekinchan was to look for a place for lunch. I can't remember how long the journey was but we were quite hungry when we got there.
The restaurant that we went to is recommended by my violin tutor who is from Sekinchan. It is called Jiann Chyi 建旗海鲜饭店.
First up we have shark porridge
Spicy stir fried baby squid
I remembered this being super duper spicy.
Nothing much to talk about vegetables lol
Deep fried shark
My in laws ordered all the sharks coz difficult to find shark dishes in Melaka.
Can't remember what exactly this is but I think it's the assam pedas shark
Another spicy dish which is the spicy stir fried baby prawns. Also spicy AF
For those who are interested in going to try out this restaurant, below are the details:
Jiann Chyi Restaurant 建旗海鲜饭店
No. 156, Jalan Bagan Sekinchan, Sekinchan, 45400, Kuala Selangor, Selangor, 45400 Kuala Selangor, Malaysia
We went to the famous Sekinchan beach after lunch. Nearly got lost but thank god for Waze 😅
Took a family photo at the famous landmark and ran off lolol
These photos were my profile pic for quite some time hahaha
After leaving the beach, my father in law wanted to leave already. SR, Wen Feng (one of my bil) and I wasn't in a hurry so we went to explore other places in Sekinchan on our own. But it was too hot so we just drove around without going down from our car.
We stopped by this area call 阿公的家乡 (Ah Gong's/Grandpa's Hometown) to get some drinks coz ours ran out. Apparently it's quite a famous place to visit when you go to Sekinchan. There's a shop called 阿嬷的店 (Ah Mah's/Grandma's Shop) in this area which is filled with people. I assume that both these places are must visits in Sekinchan lah. I'm not to sure coz I didn't do any research on Sekinchan prior visiting.
This place is also famous for paddy field sighting but we went at the wrong season. So no paddies in sight 😒 I bet during the right season, this place will look gorgeous.
We went exploring around...lemme rephrase that. We TRIED exploring around but everything either needed entry fee (too cheapskate to pay 😝) or we didn't wanna walk in the sun. In the end we stopped by this super random shaved ice shop by the roadside and had some shaved ice. The shaved ice was not bad but nothing to shout about lah.
Overall I think Sekinchan was not bad lah. We've not explored it well enough to know it better. Maybe next time we will choose a time when it's not that hot to go. Then maybe spend like two days one night there to explore more.
I've not talked about it here (but already spoken about it on my Dayre *here* in between a makeup collection post 😅) but SR, me and a bunch of friends are going to Bangkok at the end of the year. Finally I'm flying again after three years. Planning is on the way and I'm super excited about it. It's the first time I'm flying out to another country with a bunch of friends. Well, I did go to Taiwan with Jacy but that was just one friend lah. This time it's like a whole group of friends. Super excited about it. I talk about the planning process of the trip pretty often on Dayre. You guys can check out my Dayre *here* coz I blog there more often then here.
Alright. That's all for today. Recently my blogging schedule is a bit messed up coz Zyon is being extra sticky. But I'm trying my best to stick to my one-post-per-week schedule. I hope same day next week I'll be able to post something up. If not same day, I'm hoping at least something will be up lah.
So thank you for reading and hopefully you guys will check back again next week to find a new post. See you guys then.
