A Tideless Beach

Bagan Lalang - the tideless beach

A road trip to a beach with the lowest tide I've ever seen! Bagan Lalang, located in Sepang, Malaysia is known as a beach and imagine my surprise when what I saw was a stretch of land all the way to the horizon!

There was sand, shells, crabs, the salty air smell, all reminiscent of a beach yet there was that essential ingredient missing...sea water.

Strange yet true. It was a fun, impulsive road trip with an aim to get away from the city and turned out to be just what we needed.

Resort in the making

Shoreline

A five star resort is currently in the process of being built at the "beach" and as you can see, everything is on stilts. Why? The water level actually rises that high by night time.
Creepy isn't it? Just to think that the sea water actually creeps in - or wait - more like rushes in by night time. The tide is known have very strong currents and many have lost their lives, not being able to make it back in time before the tide comes in.


Crabman
The sandy shore itself was good fun to look at. What with the millions of teensy crab scrambling to get away from the big bad monsters stomping around.

I shall try to upload a vid, let's see.

That was Mr. Crabby building a home to keep away the baddies. He's cute isn't he?

Before hitting the beach, we decided to visit one of my friend's mum's plantations. Such fun.

It was fun fun to get away from the city and enjoy the greenery.

I hope y'all had a restful a weekend too!

Serenity

Sometimes, it feels like forever. Sometimes it feels like a flash.

Time - the dimension that cannot be stopped, where we exist in so helplessly and wield no control over.

So you might assume I have lost all control of time. Yes I certainly have. Life happened.

After months of deviant madness and the beginning formation of some sort of a leash to rein it all in, things finally seem to be slowing down.

Suddenly it feels wonderful to stop and experience each moment for its own beauty.
