Spend Some Quality Time with Your Dad by Doing Exciting Activities Together in Selangor

Father’s Day is a special day celebrated on June 20th this year, and it is a day we celebrate a special person in our family called “dad”. A father is a leader in the family who happily sacrifices most of his time and energy for his children. He has always been a hero and one who wants the best for the family. Spend some quality time with your dad by doing some exciting activities together in conjunction with Father’s Day. Make these ideas listed below as inspirations to celebrate belated Father’s Day after Movement Control Order (MCO) ends!


1)     Go Fishing at Pulau Ketam, Port Klang

Prepare your fishing equipment such as rods, reels and baits. Fishing is the perfect activity to reconnect with Mother Nature. Pulau Ketam located near Port Klang, is a great location for fishing enthusiasts. It is a mangrove island surrounded by flat mud area. There are four neighbouring fishing villages nearby; Pulau Ketam Township, Bagan Teo Chew, Sungai Dua and Sungai Lima. Spend some time alone with your dad and share some stories together while patiently waiting for some fish to be lured to your baits!
