Urban Escape to Sekinchan(鱼米之乡)-Day 1

On the super sunny day (23.04.2011), a bunch of city girls and boys drove all the way to Sekinchan(鱼米之乡) for recharging and relaxing. Sekinchan is one of the major rice producing areas of Malaysia and also a fisherman's town. The town has became famous after the drama-鱼米之家.

Here we are.


We have arrived around 5pm and we went straight to the Sekinchan Summer Resort & Homestay. It's actually a three storey bungalow that especially built. We rented two storey and there were total 7 rooms. It completes with living room, kitchen, fridge, air-cond and shower. It's clean and spacious. You can bring your own Wii, cards or mahjong. It's a good place for a bunch of buddies hang out. It only cost RM320 per floor.

Group photo before we went for dinner.


After full seafood dinner, we went to watch fireflies at Kampung Kuantan. As we know, firefly lights up at night especially in the dark riverbank that buffered by berembang trees. Each person cost RM10 and each boat (sampan) holds 4 passengers. I heard last time used to have crocodiles in the riverbank. Photobucket

When you see from far, the fireflies light up just like a Christmas tree. When the boat go nearer, I can be very sure that the fireflies are real. It so amazing. Too bad we can't take photo. So, let's see the cute version of firefly.

Our seafood dinner still not yet digest and we were heading to another food hunt. We heard this food stall sell delicious fried oyster.

It is a small food stall but seems like it become a hang out place for people in Sekinchan. We waited for quite long then only our food served. The fried oyster has crunchy skin together with flour and oyster. Overall the taste is fine but we find it not easy to find oyster, most of them are flour. We went back to our bungalow after finish up the food.
