Fireflies at Kg Kuantan

Kg Kuantan, Kuala Selangor
8 p.m, 15 Jan 2012

Initial plan nak teman kan Cik Fad gi jalan2 dekat2 jer yang konon-konon nye nak release tension after her last exam paper tapi tiba2 tergerak hati plak nak jalan-jalan ke Kuala Selangor. So, of course our main agenda is to visit one of the most amazing places in the world… kelip-kelip at Kampung Kuantan… sebab nye nak menyambung niat yang tak kesampaian ke sini a few weeks back.

Jetty Kelip-Kelip Kg Kuantan

We arrived around 8 p.m & since only two of us, we shared our boat together with two Mat Salleh (save skit)… Caroline from Germany & Sergio from Spain. From two different country but both are staying at London… working there maybe. We don't have much talk on the boat since four of us are so busy focusing on the fireflies. Nice meeting both of them. Actually both are them are architects. Travelling & cycling is their hobby & passion… I guest by reading their blog. At the same time, both of them are doing the charity work, raising fund for the kids… wow, sempat lagi beramal sambil2 tu. Good job… I wish I could do the same one time, Insyallah. Ameen.

Met with Caroline

One boat is charged for RM40 & can accommodate up to 5 persons including the boatman. But, for sure there is no engine boat here only traditional boat for the trip. But, don't worry as you will be provided with the life jacket. So, try to make it 4 people for one trip so that you only need to pay RM10 per person. But, I would say, it was really worth to pay for RM10 for the entry fee because if you're lucky enough, you will see a millions of fireflies appeared at one time. The boat trip normally takes about half & hour but depends on the boat man, sometimes, it may take longer time than usual. Like us, I think we spend more than half an hour sitting on the boat & enjoying the magnificent fireflies flashing their lights.

According to Pak Salih, our boatman, normally the male flashes more brighter compare to the female. This is to attract the female fireflies during courtship. So, you can differentiate just by looking at the light they flashed. Fireflies can live for only two to three months.

There's no specific time to see the fireflies. Throughout the year around 7.30 pm till 2 a.m...the fireflies can be seen. Only during the raining time & strong wind, it will probably not appear & at this time they will not allow visitor to come in. And it depends on the fireflies mood too, according to Pak Salih, sometimes too many of them, sometimes a few only & sometime they may not appear at all. So, everything depends on your luck. As for us, we're lucky enough because almost all the berembang trees at the riverside are mostly full with the fireflies… sometimes it may look like a christmas tree… seriously. Subhanallah, what a wonderful & fantastic creation.

Signboard for information

The boat man will ride the boat nearby the riverside so that you could see the fireflies closely & clearly. You're advisable not to touch & catch the fireflies… maybe not harm for you to touch it but since most of the fireflies normally congregate at berembang trees at the riverbank, so, there is possibility that other poisonous creatures may appeared & attacking you, so, be extra careful although you're too excited at that time but think of your life first… it is more worth.
I did not bring my Camera as I was told that only special camera can capture the light of the fireflies. But, honestly, I left my memory card, only camera, so, better not to bring because no use at all. Luckily, Pak Salih said that so far only camera owned by aunty of Sultan Selangor can capture the fireflies… of course high quality camera & I guaranteed the cost must be very very high. But to me, see them in live are more satisfying compare to see them in the image.

We ride the boat around 8.15 p.m & around 9.00 pm then we returned to the jetty. The distance is not so far to see the fireflies, just 100m away from the jetty you already started to see thousands of them. And the area is just nearby… ranges about 500m away from the jetty.

I was really having fun & hopefully one day I can capture the image of the fireflies in the dark.

My first RUN for 2012

Mizuno Wave Run 2012
15 January 2011

Stadium UPM

Mizuno Wave Run 2012... my first run for the year 2012 & also first time for the Mizuno Run. Not a chance to join the last year event sebab takde geng. This year I strongly decided that I must join one of the run for the beginning of 2012 although the entry fees are quite expensive compare to previous year. But I think, now, you have to spend at least RM40 for any running event or only if you're lucky enough then you will get a lil' bit cheaper for early bird registration.

Alhamdulillah, although not feeling well since yesterday... coughing & running nose, still able to make it within 1 hour & 15min. Not a good time for me... since I can improve more if I don't take more stop & walk on the sloping route. I started a lil' bit late about 5 minutes behind the women open scheduled release time but luckily I was not alone still there are too many of others also arrive at the starting point late. Hopefully can do much much better on the next run.

My running Kit with medal

After finishing your run, you need to queue for your goodie bag & finisher medal. This time, I saw most of the runners are more disciplined... queuing to get your goodie bag & also the breakfast sponsored. Breakfast provided are Gardenia Delicia waffles, nasi lemak (first time running event kasi Nasi Lemak aku rase... hehehe) & water melon. My favourite Taufu fah pun ade tau, sedap plak tu... dua kali juga lah mengulang :-)... what's more... Nestle fitness, Milo & Gatorade drinks.

Nasi Lemak daun pisang for breakfast... memang sedap

Mizuno sempat juga buat sale sports wear dia orang... not bad juga dia punye price maybe nak buat clearance stock. I was attracted to buy too but... forgot to bring my money maa, emmmhh.

Overall... I think Mizuno Run was a very successfully event so far I was joined. Very organize & everything is smooth & silky. Congratulations to the Organizer and all the runners who able to finish the 10km Run.

10km finisher medal

Next after this...

Perhiasan terindah lelaki

My first movie for 2012...

Maybe a lil' bit late to watch this movie... but when I first heard this song, I feel like...emmmhhh I shud watch this movie. Dulu zaman belaja, "Ombak Rindu" ni one of my favourite novel ... sempat juga lah khatam 2x and I still remembered the storyline maybe not all but still a few part of it. The Movie... it has its own interesting way to catch the audience attention to fall in love with the characters especially Izzah & Haris. And what... memang tak mengecewakan and tanpa aku sedari... aku menangis juga...opps.

Betullah "Perhiasan yang terindah sekali dalam hidup lelaki adalah wanita solehah". I wish I could have character like Izzah... oppps bukan kekasih gelap yea tapi wanita yang tabah & solehah... Ameen.

I really luv the lyric & melody

Sekarang bila dengar jer lagu ni, rase nak menangis pun ade juga... hehehe.

Lirik Lagu Ombak Rindu

Adira :
Tuhan tolong lembutkan hati dia
Untuk terima ku seadanya
Kerna ku tak sanggup
Kerna ku tak mampu
Hidup tanpa dia di sisi ku

Hafiz :
Tuhan aku tahu banyak dosa ku
Hanya ingat Kamu kala duka ku
Namun hanya Kamu yang mampu membuka
Pintu hatinya untuk cintaku

Adira :
Malam kau bawalah rinduku
Untuk dirinya yang jauh dari ku
Agar dia tidak kesepian
Selalu rasa ada cinta agung

Hafiz :
Hujan bawa air mata ku
Yang mengalir membasuh luka ku
Agar dia tahu ku terseksa
Tanpa cinta dia di hatiku

Hafiz & Adira :
Hanya mampu terserah
Moga cahaya di penanti

Tuhan tolong lembutkan hati dia
Untuk terima ku seadanya

Kerna ku tak sanggup
Kerna ku tak mampu
Hidup tanpa dia di sisi ku
