OK. I just happen to have some pictures of a trip made around the Semenyih area of Selangor almost a month ago inside my new 2GB pen-drive... I recently lost my old 256MB drive which have served me for more than 2 years. In this particular posting, let me talk about the Semenyih Dam ya...
I remember once going down a certain nice spot with some friends last year. Too bad in this latest trip I can't find the exact spot. Then, it was the Muslim fasting of Ramadhan. After converging in Ampang for late supper, me and the friends decided to take a trip up the winding road of Kuala Klawang in the state of Negeri Sembilan which is past the road to Ulu Langat and enjoy the fresh mountain air of the jungle in the wee hours.
Still, that is another story. Before returning to Kuala Lumpur, we stopped at the Semenyih Dam. Oh... One thing I like to do at the dam is shout my heart out and wait for the echo... Try it... It is much fun and very therapautic. Suffice to say, that's what we did for sometime early that morning before we started to bet, who could throw the farthest stone across the waters.
We then drove to another part of the lake and found a nice spot where some people were fishing. That spot even have a nice strecth of sand! And so there were we racing down the hill to enjoy the water when we saw a staggered drain on the hillside which looks like a very welcoming waterfall.
Now, none of us brought any extra clothings for swimming or dipping. Thus most were content to just wade through the waters. Me on the other hand just couldn't resist the call of the rushing waters up the staggered drain. I went up for a climb and found myself a nice spot when the friends down there said "Don't mind us...". I guess they already knew me too well...
So without much further ado, I stripped off my clothes bare! Suffice to say I enjoy a very nice skinny dipping session indeed!
Whatever, that was for last year's trip... In the latest one made almost a month ago with some other friends (actually a fan of my "Berpetualang ke Aceh" book series and his wife), we decided to return to Kuala Lumpur via the road which cuts straight to the town of Ulu Langat. That's when I decided to stop and take this picture... Notice the Petronas Twin Towers?
