A Picnic By The Lake




I hope all of you are enjoying your CNY holidays. I got a week holiday but my children have gone back to school today. A few days ago, we had a picnic at Kenyir Lake. The lake is only about an hour drive from my house in KT. Since I moved here about 3 years ago, I have been to Kenyir Lake several times but that day we had our very first picnic there. Tak ingat dah when was the last time we had a picnic. Actually having a picnic is really an opportunity to catch up on some fun and excitement with the family. Memang best!



Since it's the Chinese New Year holidays, thousands of residents and tourists are flocking the lake to spend their holidays. Ramai sgt orang! At the lake, people would normally go for fishing, have picnics or barbeque while some visitors might go for leisurely cruise or spend time on boathouses. If you want to escape into a world of tranquility and serenity, the lake is definitely an ideal retreat . I love to just sit under those shady trees, relaxing and enjoying the cool breeze from the lake . It's really nice...Sejuk je eventhough it's at 12 noon!.



Kenyir Lake is really huge and it is actually the size of Singapore!. If you like fishing and are nature lovers, it is definitely a place for you to spend your time. The lake is surrounded by lush tropical forest and is also an angler’s haven as it is the home to hundreds of species of freshwater fish.


Those three swans kept on pecking the padlock wanting to be released I guess. Panjang leher dia.. So cute of them... You can see the white and black swans swimming at the nearby pond. Wonder where they come from.


The road to Buweh waterfall . Actually there are 15 waterfalls at Kenyir Lake


A boathouse which is still under construction






Some of the food I brought from home. When we reached there everyone was so hungry and ate really a lot! It's really nice to have a picnic kat situ. You can enjoy the spectacular view and tend to enjoy the food more ...







Fruits for me yang diet ni...





Wild flowers.



Anak2 main Yam leaf . I cepat2 suruh buang takut gatal. They got so excited sebab tak pernah tengok..







and this is at the entrance of Kenyir Lake Resort


We will come back to spend a night there. Macam best je eventhough the place might look eerie at night...Have a great week everyone!
