Picnic at Kiara Park

I can strike two things on my to-do list... 1) go to Kiara Park and 2) have a picnic! Plus this was with the extended family which is always more fun for the kids.  Hubby had gone off on holiday so I depended on Waze which eventually brought us there. I had gone for Taman Rimba Kiara (Kiara Forest park) when it should have been Taman Lembah Kiara (Kiara Valley park)!  Oh well, fortunately they are very near to each other.

We're going for a picnic!

It was a good setup - shady grassy picnic sites along a long stretch of stream.  SE decided that lying down to eat would be nice...

Who's a lazy bum? That one!

This picnic was a bit last minute so didn't have much time to shop/cook.  Still, not a bad variety: Egg sandwiches, ham-cheese sandwiches, fried beehoon, ikan bilis sambal, cupcakes, sausage puffs, salad, green bean dessert, fruits, various snacks.  :)

My dad taking photos...

Part of the party...

After the food, time for 'fishing'!  There were tiny fish and prawns in the stream - my maid caught quite a lot. But later JE complained she couldn't catch anything... next time must make sure kakak doesn't hog the fishing net!

Let's see what I can catch!

After fishing, the kids wanted to go to the playground.  We thought there was one near the carpark and walked the 15mins back.  But that was merely an exercise area.  JE really likes playgrounds though, so what the heck, walked all the way back again. It felt VERY far under the scorching hot sun!  The things I do for my kiddos, heh.  The playground was decently big and well-maintained.

Rock rock rock

It was a good day out!  Kids already asking to go again haha.


  1. What a fun picnic! Must really salute and compliment you for daring to go on a picnic in the hot weather now. Really a very good and memorable experience for the children. Well done Stacy! :)

  2. You forgot about the kuih kodok I made ;-)

    Yup, picnic was fun! E&E have been asking to go again too.
    Gonna get some fish nets for next time. Elyssa also complained she didn't get a chance to catch any fish.

    Oh, I slept for almost 3 hours after the picnic. Super tired. hehe.

  3. that's a very nice picnic with the extended picnic! Do you get to bring home the fish and prawns or have to throw back to the pond?

  4. Mun, the picnic site was shady. Just the playground was out in the hot sun.

    Y, kodok goes in category of 'various'. :p I went home and slept for 2 hours!

    Ai, no officials there. And I reckon they will breed to replenish their numbers anyway. Fishies/prawnies are now in my aquarium. :)

  5. Looks like a big family fun day. Never mind the hot, hot sun...as long as close family members get together, it will be great! Everybody is happy!
