Weekend in Muar and Sungai Rambai

Sungai Rambai is the gateway to Malacca from Johor. Finally found my way there from Lebuhraya AMJ after exiting Merlimau/Jasin from Plus Highway. About two & half hour drive from KL. 
Slope for small boats & kayaks to enter Sungai Kesang. The name of the town is Sungai Rambai but the river is differently named. This was a river with clear water and I could actually see some parts of the riverbed, with river grasses, algae and all.
Part of the recreational park in Sungai Rambai. The park was not that crowded despite it being a Saturday.
Grasses & other plants forming the riverbed. I marveled at the sight of this river, since (sadly) it is not a daily scene in the city.
 Large pond awaits alongside a trunk road I took, nearby Sungai Rambai Recreational Park.
Measurement tool to monitor the annual floods, I suppose. Quite a few people were fishing along the edges of this pond.
Small flock of Lesser Whistling Ducks joined the larger flock of Purple Swamphens in this pond on that Saturday, 22nd November 2015 evening. Also sighted were the Common Sandpiper, Purple Heron, Grey Heron and Egrets. Watergate at the edge of the pond which regulates the flow of water from surrounding canals. Hardly any trees growing along the edges of the pond. Left the pond at around 6pm. Planned to continue birdwatching early Sunday morning with my friend Fong Lin who is an avid photographer.

  1. Rivers in Malaysia need to be treasured. When monsoon season arrives in Malaysia, must ensure flow of water is not disrupted by silt from construction, rubbish.
