in Ulu Yam's image

For the adventurous and non-fussy eaters (that must be team BSG ) , Cowboy Town Rawang some 35 minutes countryside drive from Kuala Lumpur offers some exciting fillers, of the ancient Chinaman shoplot kind.

There is a great variety of produce , from the forests , seas, lakes and farms. We sometimes catch some wannaBs ( no ! not team BSG ) foul mouth Golfers from the 4 nearby elite Golf Clubs fresh from their holed illicit 'winnings' indulging in some legitimate mega pot drunken prawns and obscene frogs, over extralong tiresome tales of the loose holes that got away.

Though of course there are other smaller quick draws for the casual passers by.
This giant bowl of Xtra large noodles in dark eggy sauce , an imitation of the one made famous from nearby Ulu Yam , the lor mee .

Came out piping hot and bursting at the seams. Tastes really vinegar biting strong and tasty just like the real thing from Ulu Yam . minus the prawns.
Definitely worth a try at RM 5 a Kg bowl.

but the gorgeous view is worth a million dollars , yes ? ...u bet
.
...& also ! if you dowan to go home and need completely private hidden rooms in nearby ( 45 min ) Nipah Bay Pangkor for say, a group of 8 , preferably a mixed crowd ( with the best fresh thermidor lobsters ) do call

Noodles & Buns

1/2 a century long going stronger

Ayer Tawar, Perak ( 12 km from Sitiawan 60 km from Ipoh ) is a stunning part of Malaysia's changing political landscape and has probably the first state ever to have a local Chinese boy becoming deputy Mentri Besar ( Chief Minister ) . Some Bankers here swear that this place has also the highest per capita personal savings in the whole country...so how come ?

Probably these might explain a little bit , who knows ?

their most famous noodle wonder , "kampuang" ( dry noodles in dark sauce with reddish meat slices, really flat & lean )

then to go with this slippery flattest "pian neet" ( minced meat in thinnest dough )




the "loo mein" , noodles in starchy soup...&
.
that reluctant but electrifying all-red superstar "aeng chui mein siang" ( noodles with chicken meats in rice wine )

all noodles priced at RM 2.20 each ( flamboyant thing is RM3.50 )













"kong pian" ( predecessor of the modern day donuts ) RM 0.60 each








with this kind of pricing and that kind of noodles maybe it is not surprising then
.
next time make doubly sure you drop by here on your way to Sitiawan/Pangkor to see what the fuss is all about

sea of peace

Damai Laut Resort opposite Lumut is another so near yet so far sort of place designed during the heydays of the booming Mahathir era and positions itself mainly as a playground for well-heeled foreign tourists, and boasts of an 18 hole golf course with a hotel managed by the Swiss Garden Group. There is no outstanding beach front to speak of neither anything remotely captivating , except maybe for some forgettable pictures that follow...







but its a superb hideaway when you want to disappear and indulge in some big prawns and other big things...

The neighboring extra wide sandy beaches tho are simply awesome and that turtle sanctuary in nearby Pasir Panjang ( Segari ) is definitely worth a visit so do not miss it...
