It’s famous with the myth about a white crocodile breaking the dam and leading to a British officer being killed to the incident. How true about the white alligator nobody could confirm it. However , the incident has resulted in massive flooding that has killed many people and destruction of properties, with just an old mosque and a Buddhist temple that survived the flood .

Not long ago, Sahabat Media was given an opportunity to visit Kubu Bharu for ‘ Bird Watching ‘ activity .

Bird Watching is generally bird-watching and arrival here we were divided into groups coupled with an escort or a bird expert .

Each group is provided with binoculars and a book ‘ Birds of Malaysia ” for the activity. We traveled to several locations said to be a favorite place of birds. During this activity we were asked to be more sensitive because the birds often hide behind trees and foliage . It is said there are hundreds of species of birds here and we were able to identify a number of species .

Among them are’Asia Glossy Starling ‘,’ Black Naped Oriole ‘,’ Magpie Robin ‘,’ Antwren ‘,’ Straw Headed Bulbul ‘,’ Black Headed Bulbul ‘,’ Fantail ‘,’ Bee- eater ‘,’ Paddyfield Pipit ‘ , ‘ Flower Pecker ‘ , and also some eagle . We are amazed and fascinated by the beauty of the Millennium Park location for visitors to see the birds , the atmosphere was so different and comfortable.

Although the weather was rather unfavourable, it did not dampen our enthusiasm for finding birds in the surrounding area . According to Mrs. Almaz Mokhtar , Town and Country Planning Officer , the birds here will have difficulties to fly if the weather is bad, and they will mostly only perch and nest in tree holes . However we are lucky to be able to see several species of birds fly in groups and heard the birds chirping but unfortunately we could not see the bird .

The experience in finding and identifying birds at Kuala Kubu Bharu was very fun and made ​​us excited to come back in the future to see the annual ‘ Bird Race ‘. ‘ Bird Race’ is a competition to identify the most bird species . The event is first in the state. Keep a lookout about in in the blog soon. :D

Feast on Norwegian Salmon Dishes at Utara Coffee House, Armada Hotel PJ

Went to Utara Coffee House with my wife and son quite some time ago to sample their latest addition to the menu: Norwegian Salmon.

We get to try 7 dishes : Salmon Caesar Salad, Pacific Rim Salmon Soup with Shittake Mushrooms and Herbs, Salmon Tikka, Salmon Tostadas, Salmon and Potatoes Au Gratin, Foil Baked Norwegian Salmon and Salmon Roulade& Oyster Gratin.

Salmon Caesar Salad (RM26) was not only appetizing, but crisps and fresh too. Thumbs up for the Caesar salad. Highly recommended.

image

Pacific Rim Salmon Soup with Shittake Mushrooms and Herbs (RM25). Voted everyone’s favourite that night.

image

Salmon Tikka- fragrant rice, acar and cucumber (RM26). The rice, though fragrant was a tad bland and has a very strong herbal taste but the taste was pretty much balanced when paired with the flavourful Salmon tikka and refreshing cucumber slices.

 

image

Salmon Tostadas- served with tortillas, guacamole, sour cream and tomato salsa (RM26). Lovely dish, especially when dipped in the tomato salsa.

image

Salmon and Potatoes Au Gratin (RM28). The Salmon was fresh and naturally sweet and complement the potatoes au gratin pretty well.

image

Foil Baked Norwegian Salmon served with a bed of zucchini, capsicum and champignon mushrooms (RM28). My favourite that night.The salmon was not only fresh and naturally sweet, but was juicy and bursting with flavour.A must try.

 

image

Last but not least, Salmon Roulade& Oyster Gratin (RM30). A slab of poach salmon served with oyster gratin. My wife loves the oyster gratin but the poach salmon doesn’t seems to sit well with her. But then again, to be fair, she’s never a fan of fish. The dish was okay to me.

Overall, the salmon fare offered by Armada Hotel is delicious with only a fraction of the price.

Present were hotel guests, all the Heads of Departments and hotel staff. After a short welcome introduction by the hotel’s management, guests and members of the hotel staff started to light candles around the lobby, reception and restaurants. After which, everybody joined in the countdown to switch off the lights. As a tribute to all the passengers and crew of flight MH370, a minute of silence was observed by all.

Gina Chan, Director of Sales, said all the departments of the hotel played an active role on Saturday night: “Earth Hour is about creating awareness amongst people about the energy they are using and efficient ways they might wish to consider to conserve it. All of us should be involved in this small but very significant effort”, she said.

A lucky draw was later held whereby three lucky winners came out triumphant and to enhance the occasion, the elegant Clair Rozells entertained with a mini acoustic performance which included songs like Heal the World by Michael Jackson, Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong, You’ve Got A Friend by Carole King and many more to the delight of everyone who joined in the festivities.
