Day 3(11.01.08) – Klang

January 19th, 2008 · 7 Surrendered

Went to Klang, it’s all about food. Since it’s night time, can’t really do much except eat, eat, eat hahaha… Thanks to Vincent and his friend(whom prferred not to be named, if I’m not mistaken :P). Oh.. Remember to get your customised Valentine’s Day presents from them at Heartbeat.

First stop, bak kut teh. Klang is famous for its bak kut teh. I’m not very sure of the name of this shop, in Chinese according to the signboard is “Chung Lu Wa Bao Rou Gu Cha”. You see Chinese, Indians there enjoying the bak kut teh except malay because it’s pork!

In Klang, it’s customary to have bak kut teh with Chinese tea, I don’t think you will see this practice in Singapore or other part of Malaysia. The rice is not plain rice like what you got in Kuching, it’s called “oil rice”, just like the rice you get when you order chicken rice. It’s so smooth and “slippery” hahaha… Smelt nice too.

Left: Braised chicken feet with mushroom, yum… Hahaha…
Right: The main dish! Bak Kut Teh from Klang! It’s different from what you get from Kuching, you either get tasteless bak kut teh here or very strong taste bak kut teh. In Klang, this bak kut teh is quite sticky, as in not that watery. I’m not sure about other shops in Klang that sell bak kut teh though, this shop’s bak kut teh is quite sticky.

After bak kut teh session, we went to the a roadside stall that has been operating there for 30+ years. It’s the herbal tea that they claim it’s good for health and some sickness like cough, flu, fever etc. We drank the one to cool ourselves down after bak kut teh. It’s so thick! They warned us that it’s very bitter but hehehe… Not that bitter after all, well… For some people thet might not be able to stand it but it’s OK for me sap sap sui After you drink the bitter tea, they will pour the sweet tea to clear the bitterness. The cooling sensation in ur chest and throat was really nice. Don’t ask me about the exact location though 😛 If you want to try, you can just go around Klang to ask people about it, they will know where.

Next, we went to buy muachi. They also sell tang yuan, you know the thing when you eat when the Chinese are celebrating Winter Solstice. Since we’re full, so we didn’t dine there. It’s a roadside stall also, very popular in Klang. Their business is so good! WOW! The muachi is nicer to eat when it’s hot but well… Nothing special, it’s just muachi with lots of grinded peanuts. As for the tang yuan, we didn’t try as we were too full. The ingredient for tang yuan and muachi are the same. Tang yuan is served with syrup and muachi is served with grinded peanuts.

They brought us to PKGR, hehehe… I don’t remember the full name. This is where people like to fish and hang out at night. We had our muachi there.

After we’re done with our muachi, they sent us back to hotel and we got lost along the way because the hotel is so seclude *LOL*. At the end had to call the hotel for direction.

Oh we did take a glimpse of the “castle” in Klang also hahaha…

Day 4 coming soon…
