my hopes were super high when i heard that we were going to Sepang Goldcoast. there were many reviews that i read and heard that this area is so beautiful, so clean, the pictures were mesmerizing.
from far, in the car, it looked amazing. the open sea was very inviting. but as soon as we got nearer, my hopes started to decline, from super high to, what the eff? the beach area was full of families that were either camping or having a picnic. fine with me, that is what people do by the beach right? the sad thing is that, they do not know how to keep clean. throwing things here and there seems to be the order of the day. i HATE litterbugs. it is THAT hard to throw things in the bin, instead of anywhere else that you bloody please?
the water was clear, but the colour was ?gold. i wondered if the name 'goldcoast' was because of the colour of the water or was it because they had no other original ideas of naming the place?
we saw some people fishing, but the sad part was, we also saw many dead fishes by the beach. and beach was full of litter. no wonder the fishes are dead!! curse you litterbugs!! i even saw broken glass bottles, a whole bag full of framed pictures of hindu idols, a book that has to with hinduism tied with jasmine flower, an old mattress, and worse of all, baby diapers. some of the trash, i picked up and put them aside. some, i wouldn't even dare go near.
it was a beautiful sight to see, kids playing in the water, fathers helping them fly the kite, mothers attending to their needs. all fine and dandy. the ugly sight would be the trash, the couples that are doing God-knows-what in the car under the shaded trees, the unfinished construction, and all that.
as long as Malaysians still can't get their minds off being a copycat and doing things not better, but worse, this kind of scene is something that will always be around.
good luck Malaysia
