A day at Sekinchan..

I was back in Sekinchan after visited the fishing and paddy farming village 5 years ago. And, I fell in love with this place then. However, the place seems too commercialised when I was back last week and it was very crowded too. Perhaps it has became famous due to so many shows and drama being filmed there, and it has quickly became a tourists' attractions. I saw lots of tourist buses over there. It's not a bad thing for the village but I guess the authorities can managed the place better. For example, there were lots of makeshift hawkers selling food and souvenirs near the beach, which seems makes the beach kinda lost its natural appeals. It used to be a nice, comfortable and humble beach when I visited it 5 years ago then. However, I still love their paddy fields, where the harvest seasons seems to have started. And, it was also a crowded Sekinchan due to the Sg. Besar by-elections.

Strolling at the beach and decided to take this pix where the waves are hitting the wood 

My little princess having a good time playing bubbles there 

I still love the scenic paddy fields there and the paddy has turn golden 

It's relaxing and calm looking at the paddy fields

Family portrait ... we taken a similar one before back then

Oh...this is no UFO creation ... 


Sunset over there 


Another sunset view 
Overall, it was a great trip and nice to be back here again and we also bought some rice from the shop at the mill. We drove off to Sg. Besar for dinner and it was a nice sight to witness the preparation by the political parties for the by-election.

Btw, we had our early lunch at Haha Pan Mee in Puchong. I always love the pan mee in KL where I guess you can find delicious pan mee here, compared to other places,.

My pumpkin or kampua mee hoon kuay. I love it !!

And a delicious fried fish cakes.
Have a great weekend!

  1. What a lovely place!!! Having said that, I've this phobia about long jetties with no rails by the side, like the Lover's Bridge at Tanjung Sepat - they have great fish balls and fish cakes there too!!!

  7. It can be very congested during the weekend and worst is public holiday.

    Always love the green paddy field there, at least the nearest place we can see paddy. Haha

    1. Well, there are so many cars that we are unable to find parking lots, unlike the past where you can park anywhere near the beach.

  8. One of my acquaintances is from Sekinchan, and he did say that Sekinchan's seafood is also tasty too. Seeing that he's a local, he should be correct in saying that.

    I actually haven't been to Sekinchan yet - cause the acquaintance said that it's getting really crowded with visitors nowadays. =/
