Welcome to Sungai Pikot, our little paradise. Don’t bother to look for it on the map. You won’t find it…hahaha
Seriously, have you ever experienced ‘mandi sungai’ (taking bath in the river) before? Doesn’t matter if you are an adult or kids, I know you will agree with me that ‘mandi sungai’ is a fun thing to do, right? Okay, this post is not some kind of a must visit place. It is more to something to be shared :)
When we were young, Sungai Pikot was our playground. We have no real playground. We live up the hill, far from civilization. So, the jungle and river unofficially becomes our playground. You know, I miss my childhood very much. I wish that I could turn back time and experience it once again ~sigh~

Nothing has change for the past 20 years. The river is still there, still in the same shape. Still stand proud and always looking forward for our visit. Hahaha…
As you can see, it is just a small spot but we have so many memories here. Anyone and everyone can came here, as long you respect this place (I mean keep this place clean). Actually the place is just 5 minutes from my house. During holidays especially school holidays, Sungai Pikot usually packed with kids. Hahahaha…their laughter can be heard from my house. Sometimes you cannot help yourself from smiling hearing them enjoying the moment.
Not only kids, the grown up also likes to spend their time here. Seriously, no sexy outfit (hahahahahaha) because this is an open area where everyone can see you. Laughing, screaming at the top of your lung…nobody will mad at you. Just don’t harm yourself by doing stupid action, it is a rocky place not a swimming pool ^ ^
I remember one of my friend’s kid asked me what the color of the river is. He asked, is it black? I told him that our river is clean and clear, hoping that it will stay that way forever and ever. Anyway, I cannot blame him for that question. Nowadays, it’s hard to find a clean river. Most of the rivers already threatened by pollution and sadly some of it pronounced a dead river.
|Perfect location for photography but please don't try this action at home...hahaha|
I said we are far from civilization because there is nothing here. No library, no shop, no football field, no cable phone…big NOTHING. Thank God we have electricity and thank God they invent broadband. Hahaha…
As for communication, we have to rely on our handphone and the ‘shabby’ road to link with the outside world. But we are extremely happy here because we have fresh air and green environment.
