Picnic @ Morib :(

Middle of last month, I suddenly felt like going to a beach. As usual, my loyal companion... my mother said yes. It has been a while since I brought my beloved mother for a recreational activity, so I thought bringing her for a picnic at Morib, Selangor was a great and wonderful idea. Plus, it has been a while since I entertain the 'landscape photographer' in me. I was hoping to get a wonderful shot at the beach.

My sister & cousin joined us as well. Who would want to say no to a beach & a picnic right?

We woke up early that Sunday, prepared Nasi Lemak (sedapnyaaaa...) and other foods & drinks for our picnic. I drove about 1.5 hours to get to Morib. We took MRR2 towards Klang, exit Banting... passed through Banting... I don't remember how far Morib was from Banting. I was too excited to get to Morib. I still remember how beautiful that place was when my father brought us there. That was a very longggg time ago.

But, when we arrived there... I don't know about the rest of my family, but I was immediately dissappointed. Frankly speaking... it was not beautiful there. It was hot & stuffy (beaches suppose to be hot & windy right?), the water was brown (muddy I think), the beach dirty. We cancelled our intention to dip ourselves in the water as we planned. We were afraid of contracting skin disease... even though we saw a lot of people having a marvellous time in the sea. We were paranoid, perhaps?

The beach was about 1.5km, if I estimate correctly. For a reason unknown to me, they built walls at the other part of the beach.

The only attraction there are the food stalls... there are so many of them and the 'ikan bakar' looked so inviting :) However, that's not why we went to Morib, so we ignored the food stalls.

We set up our tent and had a picnic there, nevertheless. I shot pictures as well. But there were no heart in the picture that I took. The only best thing that day was, the Nasi Lemak prepared by my Mom, the great cook... and sweet mangoes and nescafe ais... MasyaAllah :)

After about one hour, we packed and headed home... with dissappointment.

Morib is such a different place now... I didn't see anymore beauty... so sad!

Dunno whether I should say enjoy the pictures below or not... maybe not. The pictures are merely information...

For your own judgement...

The beach...

The water...

The walls...

The stalls...

The sampah... *sigh*

Take That - Never Forget

We've come a long way, but we're not too sure where we've been.

We've had success, we've had good times, but remember this.

1.Been on this path of life for so long,
feel I've walked a thousand miles,
sometimes strolled hand in hand with love,
ev'ry body's been there.

With danger on my mind I would stand on the line of hope,
I knew I could make it,
once I knew the boundaries,
I looked into the clouds and saw my face in the moonlight,

just then I realized what a fool I could be,
just cause I look so high I don't have to see me,
finding a paradise wasn't easy but still,
there's a road going down the other side of this hill.

Never forget where you've come here from,
never pretend that it's all real,
someday... soon this will all be someone else's dream,
this will be someone else's dream.

2. Been safe from the arms of disappointment for so long,
feel each day we've come too far,
yet each day seems to make much more.
Sure is good to be here,

I understand the meaning of 'I can't explain this feeling' now
and it feels so unreal.
At night I see the hand that reminds me of the stand that I make,
the fact of reality.

Never forget where you've come here from,
never pretend that it's all real,
someday... soon this will all be someone else's dream,
this will be someone else's dream.

We've come so far and we've reach so high,
and we've look each day and night in the eye
and we're still so young and we hope for more.
But remember this,

we're not invincible,
we're not invincible, (No)
we're only people, we're only people, hey
we're not invincible, we're not invincible.

So agaon I'll tell you,
never forget where you're come here from,
never pretend that it's all reall,
someday... soon this will be all someone else's dream,
this will be someone else's dream.

Zubir Ali - Doa

Dalam termangu
Ku sebut namaMu
Biar susah sungguh
Mengingati Kau
Penuh seluruh

Tuhanku cahayaMu
Panas suci
Bagai kerdip lilin
Di kelam sunyi

Aku hilang bentuk
Kembara di negeri asing
PintuMu ku ketuk
Aku tak bisa berpaling

(lagu nyanyian Zubir Ali, pernah dipopularkan Aishah)
