12 April 2009 ~ Yes, A great outing @ Taman Pertanian Bukit Cahaya Shah Alam today. 🙂
My sis & me woke up early in the morning to prepare some sandwiches for the outing.
Before the outing started, we went for dim sum breakfast @ Restoran Key Way (奇味包饺点心） which located @ Taman Paramount.
Then, we headed to our main destination of the day ~ Taman Pertanian Bukit Cahaya Shah Alam. hehe.. As usual, we lost somewhere around that area. According to my friend and also a map (as attached in the previous post), after Batu Tiga toll, there will be a sign board on your left (Yes, there is). So, we followed that signboard and turn into a roundabout (Bulatan Melawati). From the roundabout, we turn into the 3rd junction. After the turning, you should be able to see a Tesco on your right (Yes there is). Then go straight, according to them, there will be a signboard where Taman Pertanian Bukit Cahaya should be on your right hand side after you go through a few trafic light. BUT, we couldn’t see the sign board as mentioned by my friend but we saw a signboard that written as Taman Botani (We thought Taman Pertanian != Taman Botani). Therefore, we keep on go straight. In my memory (in fact, this is the 2nd time I went to Bukit Cahaya), the route from the roundabout to the turning is not that long, thus, we make an U-turn and follow the Taman Botani signboard. Oh Yes, “Taman Pertanian = Taman Botani“. haha… We arrived @ Taman Pertanian around 10:30am.
Of course, we need to purchase the ticket which cost us RM3 each person. After get a map, here we start our journey in the Bukit Cahaya. As my bicycle riding skill is not that good, therefore we plan to walk through out the park. Our first stop was Taman Padi. haha… after the first stop, my friend already regret of walking along the way in the park. Thus, we back to the main entrance in order to rent a bicycle. BUT, the bicycle is run out of stock. So, we decided to take a tour bus as the tour bus will cover the right side of the park. We took the bus from the main entrance until the Empangan Sungai Baru and turn back. The bus stopped by @ some of the main attraction along the way such as Taman Haiwan, Taman Cendawan, Taman Empat Musim and so on. We stopped by @ Taman Empat Musim while on the way back from empangan.

The 4 season house is nice place to cool you down, with colourful flowers around, it make your tracking chill. We spend around 15 minutes in the 4 season house before we proceed to our next stop.
After that, we visited some of the attraction point along the way back to the main entrance such as Taman Cendawan, Paintball Valley, Taman Haiwan. We took bus back to the main entrance from Taman Haiwan & here we end our Bukit Cahaya journey for the day. We left bukit cahaya around 1pm & headed to our next target ~ Shah Alam Famous char siew rice.

Here, we ordered Char Siew, Roaster Chicken, Roasted Pork, & Roasted Duck.

I don’t know why. The price is reasonable.
After the great meal, we only realize actually Spring 99 bought over Spring Golden management & they maintain the kitchen. SO, “Spring 99 = Spring Golden“. 🙂
