Where it used to be the shore, behind of Yok Poon Primary School

Moaning for the Lost

It was really heart broken to me to see my favorite shore in Pengerang get into this kind of state. If you browse through my very early posts about Shore behind of Yok Poon Primary School, then you will see what kind of beautiful creatures used to live there and the beautiful shore line. All these are gone now, i dont know what to say except for it is really really sad.

Pictures before taken by me in Year 2008.)


1.) Where it used to be the habitat of thousands sand bubble crabs and fiddle crabs.




A reclaimed trail covered the original beautiful sand bar. How ugly, how sad.


2.) The rocky shore where i used to find anemone, shrimps and where we used to harvest clams.




Partially destroyed by the land reclamation. Are they going to turn the rocky shore into a piece of flat land?



3.) The beautiful small island which is accesible during low tide was a lively habitat full with black sea cucumbers, mudskippers and not to mentioned all kind of sea snails.


Are those cute little animals still around? i wonder what was in the mind of those workers who carried out the task of destroying such beauty.



4.) When you look from the small island towards the inner land, you used to see the coast side by side with the school.


Try to do the same thing now, you will see machines and man made land. What had we lost forever?



A video i took in year 2008, which you can see the beautiful untouched coastal line.

Hi there, I'm Ken Yu. I'm on a vacation in Singapore. I'm planning to visit Pualau Pengerang next week, Tuesday. It would just be a day tour so I would like to ask you of the wonderful places to visit in Pulau Pengerang. Though I already have a few places in mind, I think that it would be worth the visit if I can make good use of my time well and visit as many places as possible. Hoping for your speedy and favorable response! Here's my email ad, yu.biggie@gmail.com :) Thanks!

Hi
i hope this reply is not too late.
Places of interest are: Herbs Garden (Sungai Kapal), Ostrich Farm, Fo Guang Buddhist Zen Temple (both Teluk Ramunia), just walking around the town centre of Sungai Rengit, Desaru Beach and Desaru Fruits Farm, the old abandoned Pengerang battery at Tanjung Pengelih Jetty (no clear path/ direction for this though)
Actually i am not good in this, if you search at Google, you should be able to find some visitors sharing on regards to their trips and places that they visited.
I wish you a good trip!
