Pulau Ketam outing (Tourism Selangor)

Woke up way too early this morning when i just got to sleep at 2am the night before. zzzzzz. But i was pretty excited as Tourism Selangor has organized a day out trip to Pulau Ketam today! By 7am, I'd already reached KLsentral where our meeting point was. Some of us decided to take the Komuter train which was honestly a bad choice :P. Just say we managed to reach the last station, Pelabuhan Klang almost 1 hour behind the scheduled time.  
Arrival
almost reaching.
Anyway upon reaching, we took a boat ride which was almost 20-30 minutes from the jetty to Pulau Ketam. Good thing was that we were all insured courtesy of Tourism Selangor. yeay! We then were asked to gather at Balai Islam for briefing by the crew, Fazly Razally and Dian. The representative from Majlis Perbandaran Klang, Mr Winston Chua was there too. There will be a mini photography contest going on as well. The rest of itinerary are pretty much free and easy to explore these floating houses with boats and variety dialects like Hokkien, Teochew, Mandarin and yes! awesome inexpensive seafood treat!
bicycles are the main transportation here..
So we were given options to either explore by foot or cycling. I took this opportunity to cycle coz i think the last time i did, it must have been ages ago. :P Only for RM5, you can rent the bike for a whole day. Its pretty small island, so im sure even without a map, we definitely wont get lost. 
It was hot and burning! :P
haha. After some exploring under the scorching hot sun and snapping some photos, I decided to go back to our briefing point as it is already 1230pm. Here are some of the photos I've took. wasn't the best as my mojo was not there. not enuff sleep doesnt help either.:P
its a recycle 'mansion'

The Chinese Temple
A lot of rubbish..i think they need to beef up the place and get more dustbin! hahah
hanging clothes
the sporting uncle
floating houses and their boats
the playful kids
Rumah Pesara /Home of the Retiree
Ahaks..just for fun!
at least there were some crabs here..muddy!
Then its time for lunch! no crab tho, but it was an awesome lunch with steam fish, squid curry & prawn sambal. yummy!
yummylicious!!
After lunch, the Tourism Selangor crew selected the best 6 photos and won by Nigel (i personally love his photos), Spectre, Kelly Chin, Daniel, Sky & another guy..sorry forgotten his name..oppsss...Congrats and it was nice meeting you guyz! We had our group photos (can someone forward to me any of the group photo, didnt manage to get someone to snap it..thanks) and took the speed boat on the way back to the jetty. By 530pm, I was finally at home, tired and stinks like a dried prawn..lol..but it was fun! thanks to Tourism Selangor..hope to receive invites for the next outing ya..till then..keep exploring :P. So add them in FACEBOOK or TWITTER, who knows you may join for another #TourismSelangor Day Out like this too!
