Short Holiday - Tg Sepat & Bagan Lalang (Day 1)

During the long Deepavali weekend, we went with a small group of friends for a short 3D,2N holiday in Tg Sepat and Bagan Lalang.

Some people were already asking us......."Hah? 3 days? What to do there?"
Well, it was meant to be a relaxing holiday :) And looking back, I'm so glad we didn't squeeze it to 2D,1N. We had plenty of time to just chill and catch up!

Day 1

The famous Pao Shop
It was just a small shop so we were shocked to see two tourist buses parked nearby! Just look at the crowd! It was as if all the paos were being given for free. We wanted to buy some to try but were told every single pao has been reserved. What??????? So, I got into the 'kiasu' mood and made reservations for 18 paos for the following day. Ha hahh...... I never imagined I would ever queue up and make reservations for Paos !!!!

Coffee Shop
After the Pao shop, we went to the shop next door selling coffee. We were given small samples to try out and it was really good. Very aromatic.

Mushroom farm
After a leisurely tea break of "oh chien" (fried oyster) and drinks at an old style kopitiam, we proceeded to the mushroom farm. The farm part was actually just a row of mushrooms. Nothing much to see. We spent most of the time in the shop buying mushrooms and mushroom related stuff (mushroom powder, mushroom drinks etc).

Lingzhi Mushroom - at first, I thought it was fake cos it was so bright and shiny.

Other types of mushroom -

Lovers Bridge area
Then we proceeded to the area around Lovers Bridge. Ahhhh...... so peaceful and serene!

I just love this photo. It was actually my last shot before my camera battery died.

We had our seafood dinner at the Lover's Bridge Restaurant. When the waitress came to take our order, she told us it was a one hour wait. Ok loh........ leisurely trip mah. We ended up buying and eating lots of keropok (from a nearby shop) while waiting for our food. Food was nothing great actually. No photos since my camera battery died.

Patio @ our Homestay House
After dinner, we went back to our homestay house. (Photo taken the following morning. Will write more about this lovely house in my next post). After I managed to get Elyssa to sleep around 10pm, I joined the rest for a chit-chat session at the outdoor patio. It felt so nice to have an activity after Elyssa's bed time!!! Ha ha! We all had a good time talking and laughing till the wee hours of the morning. :)

-End of Day 1-

What a coincidence, eh? 3D2N? I'm really curious to see what you all did there hehe. The sunset pic at the Lover's Bridge is so beautiful!

The peanut and kaya bao that we bought were so-so only, which explains why they were easily available. I think they are more famous for their pork-based baos.

We saw a lot of Homestay signboards along the way and we were wondering... got people come and stay here meh? Now I know :) Looking forward to your next post!
