Each house is connected to the main road by a long bridge on stilts. Life in a mangrove swamp is unique. To find hotels, search for Kukup or Pontian Malaysia in the new sidebar search box at http://www.mycen.my/ or http://www.tvsmith.my/.

It saddened me to see a forlorn cat in Kukup. With water everywhere, a swamp ain’t no place to keep a cat or dog. Without sterilization, the stray population grows and many became feral.
I know we can’t save the world always but we can be empathetic and help educate ignorant pet owners.

Loved how serene the swampy coastline and the mangrove stumps appeared near the Persatuan Sukan Layar Selangor (Sailing Sports Association). Soothing in every way.
“I like the way your sparkling earrings lay,
Against your skin, it’s so brown.
And I wanna sleep with you in the desert tonight
With a billion stars all around”
Peaceful Easy Feeling was a song recorded by The Eagles in 1972. They don’t write songs like this anymore.
Last I heard this song was while driving fom Kluang to Kota Tinggi with Ken Chia many years ago and listening to Singapore’s Gold 905 FM on the radio. The station from Caldecott Hill can be listened online from anywhere in the world today.

The stretch between Morib Beach and the luxurious AVANI Sepang resort in Bagan Lallang was branded as the Gold Coast of Selangor. For me the true beauty of the Gold Coast is at this section where mangrove trees appear half sunken during the sea’s low tide.
Under a golden sunset, all that glitters is gold, especially to someone appreciative of nature. I love the haunting and eerie silence of the submerged trees when contrasted with the the noisy birds flying above the swamps.
Unusual to see so many crows here. Crows are scavengers but not marine birds. Maybe the low tide exposes food. One of them, in mid flight, looked like it had a fish hanging from its beak. I took the Sony A7R out from the bag as it has the rapid firing capability needed for this scene.
This corner is a true eco tourism gem that is overlooked and not promoted. Look for gold yourself at the Gold Coast.
