A trip to Sky Mirror in Kuala Selangor was organised by our BEC Damansara Utama Holy Family on Saturday 29 June 2019. A total of 33 persons, including relatives and friends of BEC members made the trip. Everybody was asked to come dressed in colourful clothes in order to get the best reflections at the Sky Mirror. A contest for the most colourfully dressed persons was organised to put everyone in the mood. On the morning of the trip, everyone gathered at the bus stop in front of Cathryn’s and May’s beauty salon in high spirits, as early as 4.30 am. Unfortunately, the bus arrived more than half an hour late. Anyway, it didn’t take long to reach ‘Jeti Pekan Lama, Kuala Selangor’. We waited for our turn. Then, we put on our life jackets and proceeded to the two boats to take us to our destination. The boat ride into the sea took almost half an hour.

As we approached the shallow waters, we saw a myriad of colours in the distance as many people were there before us. We got out of our boats and followed our guides to our spots to get ready for the photo shoot. While the guides were busy preparing for the shoot, everyone took photos of their colourful reflections in various poses. The guides then took more group and individual pictures as well. When everyone was satisfied, we got back to our boats and headed back to the main land. On the bus to the next destination, everybody voted for the most colourfully dressed persons. Lana came out 1st, followed by Laura and Winnie.

Next on the itinerary was mass at the Chapel of Holy Infant Jesus, Kuala Selangor. When we arrived there, the care taker Anthony, briefed us on the history of the chapel. Fr VA Michael kindly consented to celebrate mass for us even though he had a very tight schedule. At the end of mass he recited healing prayers. He revealed that it was his birthday that day and we all sang him the birthday song. By now, everybody was very hungry. We proceeded to the restaurant and were treated to a very sumptuous lunch. After lunch, many of us visited the shops nearby to buy dried fish, prawns, biscuits etc.

Soon it was time for dinner. We were taken to ’Want to Eat Restaurant’ where we were served the seafood platter. A wide variety of seafood was served on a huge dish. Lastly, a cake was brought out to celebrate Irene’s birthday. Juliana Tan organised the whole trip with the help of Cathryn, May, Pat and others. Many thanks to Juliana for giving us the opportunity to visit Sky Mirror and the other places in Kuala Selangor. Everybody had fun and there was great fellowship among all who went. We arrived back safely in Damansara Utama about 9 pm.
