Saga Hill Hike

Hi guys! So late last month my KL Fit Challenge Coaches decided to make outdoor work out. We were allowed to invite family and friends so I brought Nina along. We gathered around 8 am at the club before heading there together since most of us didn't know the way to Saga Hill. We were so excited since it was our first hike in our twenties LOL.

One thing I didn't like was lack of parking space. One was because we got there a bit late than we should and it was weekend.

There were no toilets provided therefore you need to be prepared. There was a small stall which sold bananas and other fruits as well to boost up your energy before you start hiking. I didn't snapped any picture on the way up as I was worried I would tripped and smashed down the camera.

It was raining slightly after about 15 minutes of hiking hence we needed to be careful with our steps. Luckily it stopped after 5 minutes or so and we could see beautiful little mushrooms started to blossom after the rain.  

The route was fine at first but it got harder and harder with so many high steps but I still could bear with it. Nina was so exhausted and wanted to throw up. Might be due to her lack of exercise and breakfast. I was afraid that she wanted to give up. I kept telling her she could do it and didn't want to miss the chance to see the top view. I was proud she made it then!

We were so relieved and happy to make it to the top even though we were only welcomed with just a sign board LOL.

Pictures of people who made it to the top! We called it board of achievement.

Can I just lay down and appreciate a little moment of good day after rain?

A little corner for resting.

We only could peeped the stunning view through the trees but too bad the picture don't do any justice. 

These were the coaches who were responsible of our exhausted morning. Coach Kevin and his wife Coach Jamie.

We stayed at the top for 20 minutes and later headed down. We decided to take another route which was steeper to challenge ourselves.

Managed to finish it in just twenty minutes. Yeay!

Took some pictures while waiting for others.

Thank you for all the crews in making the hike more fun and exciting. We were sweating like crazy and it was a very good work out. For those who are looking for a hike on weekend I would suggest for you to come here as the route is moderate for the starters. The routes are easy making the chances of getting lost are very low. You will always find another hikers on the way up and down and most of them are very friendly and encouraging. Give it a try!

Pulau Ketam Steamboat

How's your public holiday so far? It is a good day to just wake up and see the sunshine peeping in through the window offering you a great day ahead. And for me finally I can write a blog post! 

What do you like to do when you have free time? I like to spend with my sister and haunting food that is under our budget. 

So about last month we were so craving for seafood steamboat. But most of them are quiet pricey per head. Later we decided to try Pulau Ketam Steamboat which is situated in KL Festival. 

The entrance is very small and a bit hidden but fear not, when you enter it you will find out it is very large inside.

The interior is very simple and with bright orange chairs to spice up the area. 

We decided to dine outside because the weather was so good and windy which was perfect for us to have late lunch together. 

The outside area is facing to a lake which added points why we decided to sit there. 

The waitress was very friendly and helpful in helping us to choose the meal set. Later we wanted to try Double Combo Value Set which is offered for two people. 

My sister chose Chicken Soup and mine was Tom Yam Soup. I have to say the Tom Yam soup was delicious and almost exactly like we were in Thailand. However, my sister said the Chicken Soup was a bit just okay but can be spiced up with the condiments and it would make it tastes tastier.

As you can see I almost finish the whole fried onions. I love to put it in my soup and tasted the crunchy of it.

However the real presentation of the meal was not as good as in picture but everything were there.

Here are us enjoying every sip of it. 

 If you guys have big appetite I recommend you to pick the meal set for 3 or 4 because the meal set for two was not enough.

But I came back again alone to have my lunch since Nina couldn't make it due to class.I ordered the Mussels Value set for 1 person which is RM29.80.

(The picture was taken with my phone so sorry for the quality)

This set was more than enough for me. The mussels were chew-able and I don't know why they tasted like fish lol. I left with happy tummy and was satisfied. 

So I'm going to rate this 3.5 out of 5 star. It's a great place to eat steamboat if you are under budget and worth it as well. 

Mucho Gracias!
