An exciting Sunday...

Well it is Sunday again. Another beautiful and sunny day indeed. This morning we folks from the Kelab Volvo Klasik Malaysia went for an outing to the countryside. We all met at the R & R at Sungei Buluh and then convoy along the country roads on a trip to nowhere. We were supposed to go to Kuala Kubu Bahru but with no real destinations we just follow the leader of the convoy. The trip took us back to the third world of a sorts where roads to my surprise still choke with traffic. We just follow without knowing where it lead us and at half way of the journey part of the convoy took a wrong turn, like the blind following the blind and eventually were told by the other half of the convoy via the cell phone that we were on the wrong road. Well, want can we do but just to turn back and try to trace where the other half of our gang are. Eventually we found them and then continue to proceed on this wonderful trip to nowhere.

We passes along old town and villages and got lost twice, had to do a U turn and eventually found out we were nearer to Kuala Lumpur then we thought. We are actually turning back using the old country roads. The road eventually took a turn to be better and the side of road were lush forest and clear water streams. With that we could felt the atmosphere cooler. We proceed on enjoying the ride and eventually found our friends who had waited for us from the north. With the local guiding us we eventually found a beautiful picnic spot. We drove on and parked our cars and got ourselves a spot beside a stream and enjoy a break of tropical fruits consist of Durian and Rambutan with cool soft drink.

I took the opportunity to take as much snap of images of various plants and sights that I would otherwise could not get in the city. It was nice to be back to nature again among the lush green of the tropical forest with running stream. With that backdrop we enjoy the Durian and Rambutan while yarning about a little bits of tale that us folks in our golden age could talks for hours. Our spouse were also with us so are young children of the younger member of our club. So to those kids it is a heaven with running stream. They did not waste their time and soon found to be enjoying swimming and flapping in the cool water of the stream under the watchful eyes of their parents. While the kids were enjoying their time splashing in the streams, the ladies were comparing notes with each other like all ladies do. Seeing the stream Oh! Boy I wished I had brought my swimming trunk or at least a short pants. Would love to enjoy a dip on this cool mountain stream. Friends that was the day...[Images about are some of that I took while at that picnic spot]... Enjoy...
