Visiting Kuala Kubu Bharu for the First Time (with our kids)

Retna and I have been to Kuala Kubu Bahru, that was more than 13 years ago.

We have never bring our kids there, neither we visit the place since then (we were there for a church retreat).

Retna and I were totally amazed when we arrived at Kuala Kubu Bharu around 8:45am that the town is very much still the same, without much changes.  The architecture of the place, still well preserved.

Most of the owners and tenants of the old buildings are still rather bold in the color scheme.  Wanna stop for a while just to comment about the ID specialist and feng shui master were featured in news about 2014 color trends.  Obviously, these color schemes do not, and will never influence the people with older architecture.  Retna and I included.

We parked our car near Teo Wun Bakery, which served really nice and unique kaya puff.  We actually went to the right place, rather the first place when we arrived in Kuala Kubu Bharu, madam of the bakery is really helpful, she told us all the places to go and visit, of course she highlighted where the nice want tan noodle is, Teo Chew porridge, chicken rice, Hainanese noodle etc.

The walk about in the town was peaceful and we visited most of the outlets selling sundries, food as well as household items which we seldom find them in Klang Valley.

The only not so great experience when we were in Kuala Kubu Bharu was an encounter with a mental challenged Indian gent.  He probably saw me with a Sri Lankan wife, so he decided to pick me as his target.

Well, God has handled it all.

We may come back again for home stay in Kuala Kubu Bharu in the future.

The weather is cooling and many beautiful plants everywhere.  However, not really like Osaka, Kyoto kind of plants and flowers everywhere.  But, something nice.

Highly recommended to bring kids to this place, they will sure to enjoy the place very much.
