Sekinchan revisited 再访适耕庄

On Aug 11, we visited Sekinchan, the rice belt of the state of Selangor. The padi was newly planted. (Old posting A grateful day in Mandarin)

Today, we went back to Sekinchan to see the harvesting of padi.

On our way to Sekinchan, we stopped by Bukit Melawati, Kuala Selangor. Bukit Melawati is a fort built in 1907 by the then Sultan of Selangor and few canons were erected to protect the land from invading Dutch army. A light house was built at the top of the hill, it is still in use today.

It can be easily accessed by driving up to the hill where we have a good view of selangor coastline.

Many Silverleaf mokeys can be found loitering for food at top of the hill. (Many more pictures in Facebook)

在今年的八月十一日,我们到适耕庄一游,观赏稻田(看旧帖子感恩的一天 ) 。当时刚播种不久,所以稻田很幼嫩。


前往适耕庄的路途中,我们到瓜拉雪兰莪的 Bukit Melawati 一游。

Bukit Melawati 是一位雪兰莪苏丹,在1907年建立在一个小山上的防卫堡垒,并放有数台大炮,以对付来侵略的荷兰人。 在山顶处,也建立了一座灯塔,至今仍然在使用着。

我们可以很方便地驾车上到小山上,可以远眺雪兰莪的海岸线。山上也有很多猴子,等候人们给它们食物。 (更多照片在Facebook)
