It was 31 August. A very cloudy day to start with. Hubby suggested for a short drive to the countryside since the weather was nice for a drive. The kids started schooling on 1 September after taking a very long leave from schools, so a little family outing that Monday before they went back to schools.
Our destination was Bengoh. A village which started to gain attention recently for its greenery and waterfalls. But we were not going for both that morning. Instead, we were checking out on its Bengoh Dam.
Less than an hour drive, we reached the entrance of the dam. We did not go in as permission needed for a tour. So, we just parked and looked at the dam from far away. Gushing water could be heard, and it was rather loud. First time for all of us to see a real dam.
One of the rivers we passed through along the way. Rains started to pour while we drove back to the city.
We made a stop at Koufu Food Court in Penrissen for lunch. It was not yet 12 noon but the crowds were rather big, fortunately we were still able to find a long table for 5 of us.
Pork leg rice for hubby as he was craving for it that day. Its taste reminded me of my mum's cooking. The Hakka style of braised pork leg.
The kids had roasted chicken rice each. They tasted alright.
I had this Mixed Curry Rice from the stall next to the Pork Leg Rice stall. The portion was huge but the curry gravy wasn't to my liking. I've tasted better curry from other places.
From the same stall, hubby ordered this platter. I liked the roasted pork, as the skin was crispy.
We went home after done with our lunch.
