Symbol of Sekeping Serendah. Feels like a guarded private retreat.
Glass house rental: RM450(weekday) and RM600 (weekend) accomodate 6 person, extra bed/person: RM50 extra
After parking our car near the entrance, we walk a short distance to the glass house! Above pic is looking back at our car
looking towards the other end which is leading to swimming pool
walking to pool area
winding pathway
this is the pool, not very big, but the area is clean and in good condition
mud shed, next to pathway, accomodate 2 person (RM300, weekend RM400)
walking towards glass shed from the main pathway
glass house!
glass house!!!
looking out at BBQ area
BBQ tonight!
bedroom upstairs, 2 queen size beds and 2 single beds. this is the common and the one and only bedroom in the glass house.
balcony next to bedroom, looking down to the right: BBQ area
looking left towards the open-air bathroom/toilet
ground floor: kitchen, living room and bathroom/toilet(to the left)
sink, clean tap water while “camping” in the “jungle”
toilet and washing
food preparation
food preparation 2, the fish(to the right at the back) is so fresh and good.
playing monopoly, a good game… hehe, complimentary bananas
the caretaker will start the BBQ fire for you.
while waiting for dinner time, we went to a waterfall nearby(5 to 10 mins drive)
daerah hulu selangor
indiany colors
dinner, yumm, so hungry
yum yum (pork rib, fish in tin foils, BBQ prawn, hotdog)
before slumbering the night away, and not wanting to continue to monopoly game, we turn to something for exciting… the loser have to perform a pole dance, coincidently a pole is in the middle of the living room
squating action
wow, looks professional
swing action which looks familiar
and some molesting action
come morning, the air is so fresh and it is really cold
some complimentary stuff which comes with glass house: mosquito killer
gass stove, kitchen utensils
microwave, you could charge your phone, camera as there are ample electrical socket, but there is no phone coverage here. (that is no communication with the outside world)
going back
while driving back, you will see lots of orang asli shacks
and some modern orang asli housing area
pond before you reach civilisation (10 minutes from Sekeping Serendah to the main road of Serendah with Serendah KTM…)
Wonderful trip, refreshing air and surrounding especially waking up surrounded by trees

Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, Taman Tun (near 1 Utama)

Popeye fast food in Taman Tun Dr Ismail, near 1 Utama Shopping Center.
i had a 2pcs chicken set(includes 2 pc chick, coleslaw, biscuit, mash potatoes and coke) The chicken is not oily, but i still prefer KFC version which is more flavourfully spiced. Biscuit is ok, i had better few years back in US, here they prob use the ready-made mix… coleslaw(not pictured here) is better than KFC as it has gherkins bits and rougher cut. Unlike KFC, here you can mix spicy and mild fried chicken, but although i asked for one spicy and one mild, could hardly taste any difference.
mash potatoes i something i have never seen before, the gravy has chili bits in it(mildly spicy) and also bits of meat, probably chicken in it. As a gravy and potato lover, this definitely suits me.
remember to order a large mash potatoes with gravy SEPARATED, then they will give you 2 small tubs of gravy, yeah, and you have more gravy if you ask them to separate it… hehe
looking out, competition(KFC) is nearby to the right.
similar options with KFC
they also selling: fish, shrimps, cajun fries, cheesecake dessert etc
menu 1
menu 2
The thing i like bout Popeye is their mash potatoes with wonderful gravy, and also their pricing! they don’t have government tax, service tax, wat you see on the menu is what you paying for.
Address: Popeyes
