On Saturday, we made another road trip to Kuala Kubu Baru again. Our first trip was a few months ago where we visited the Selangor Dam. There is actually nothing much to do in Kuala Kubu Baru. We went again because we just wanted a short road trip. Hubs and I enjoyed the drive on the scenic highway during our first time there. However, this time, waze took us to another road, which was through the trunk road, cutting across some small towns. It was fairly interesting but I still prefer the scenic highway.
Once we arrived, we had lunch again at Sun Sun Seng Nam, an old-school coffeeshop which serves Hainanese Chicken Chop, Hailam mee and many other dishes. The chicken chop is ok, nothing spectacular but I just love having my food in a classic coffeeshop. When the food was served, the owner turned on his player and the song Summer Time came on. I have listened to this song when I was kid and it sure brings back memories of the 70’s. I was surprised that I could still remember most of the lyrics *chuckle*.
This was my plate of Hainanese Chicken Chop with lots of gravy, green peas and caramelized onions. On the sides are some french fries and an egg on top of a small slice of bread.
After lunch, we walked further down from the coffeeshop and ventured into the side lane. This is where the above mural is located. No one wanted to take photos so I asked missy to take mine. If you like wall murals, walk around and you will find them along the alleys. Check out my first trip to Kuala Kubu Baru post. I took another pretty wall mural too.
Then we decided to check out these colourful stairs which belong to a Kuan Yin temple located near the JKR quarters. The temple was locked so I just took a photo of the stairs. Beautiful eh?
Further down is another Chinese temple with a Wishing tree. To access this temple, we have to drive into the JKR quarters. We went home after visiting the temple. It was a short road trip for us.
