Early CNY Hoi Kung at Apik Hill

Group outing at Apik Hill Cheras on chor 3 of Chinese New Year, 30 Jan 2017 … It was an early hoi kung (start work) trekking for the auspicious CNY. That morning, there were not many trekkers, possibly still enjoying the Chinese New Year holidays. 

The group started from the usual Cheras Awana side, hiked up to Station 6 and continued to Saga hilltop, then traversed to the waterfall and returned via Station 5 for a round trip of about 4 hr 15 minutes. 

When we adjourned for lunch at the usual Mama and Son pan mee, it was still closed; so was the restaurant next door which sells delicious kon loh mee. All Chinese restaurants and coffee shops in that area were closed too. We finally have to settle the lunch with mamak food instead. 

It was an enjoyable outing with the trekker friends together considering that we were still in Chinese New Year mood.

Gong Xi Fa Cai to all our trekker friends ... May the Year of the Rooster be a great year to all of us with the best of health, lots of happiness and prosperity. 
 Happy Chinese New Year
