We were very hungry by the time we reached Rawang town. I was looking for the chicken rice coffee shop ( Hock Tong Hong) but unfortunately they were no longer around. I wonder where they have moved to? Therefore we just hop in to Restaurant Try To Eat at Rawang main road near Bintang Supermarket for a quick meal of Bak Kut Teh. We must have been very hungry because the simple bak kut teh (all pai kuat, pork ribs) with rice tasted so good. LOL!

It was a beautiful sunny Sunday morning and I decided to take my family for an outing. I have not been back to Empangan Batu (Batu Dam, built during the colonial days) in Sg Tua for quite some time already. The water in this dam flows from the Titiwangsa Mountain Range. My last trip there many years ago was to hunt for Toman fish. There are lots of Toman in this Dam that provides water supply to residents in the Klang Valley. Unfortunately they are quite smart and it is not easy to catch them. The toman fish over populated and adapted well in this dam. The number of carps and other fish population dropped drastically. Most of them especially juvenile fishes fell prey to the aggresive toman. First stop at Empangan Batu. It is nice to enjoy the peaceful and serene scenic atmosphere around the dam. I saw some mountain bikers had just finished their expedition and were relaxing at the stop area at the dam. This is a nice rest area. Sadly, very typical of Malaysian public places; the toilet is in bad shape and need major repairs. Next, we stopped by a fruit stall near Ulu Yam. We ended up buying banana, coconut, guava, pineapple and rambutans.
