Segway and Hibiscus at Perdana Lake Gardens

Segway and Hibiscus at Perdana Lake Gardens

This is what tourist brochures say about Kuala Lumpur’s Perdana Lake Gardens: ‘The green lung of Kuala Lumpur features a jogging trail, exercise stations and a children’s playground but the star attraction is the man made lake at the centre of the park, on which you may indulge in boating or kayaking activities or take a leisurely stroll along its perimeters.’

Yawn.

This is what it should read: ‘Screw jogging, strolling, kayaking or boating and go for the super Segway ride with super-visor Vic. Ride up ramps, push the speed limit and try out doughnut driving. The winner is, who finds out about Bunga Raya and gets there first.’ Alright, I am going to tell you. Bunga Raya is the word for hibiscus and Malaysia’s national flower. Flora fans check out the Orchid & Hibiscus Garden in the park. Let’s go!

The Segway doughnut. Spin around your own axis and ideally create circular skid-mark patterns of rubber and cause the tires to emit smoke from friction. Here is for beginners.

Riding up to the best Segway couple picture spots. It only looks as if Tomek is standing free handedly. The truth is, he was holding on to me, to keep his balance. That is why I have my fingers crossed, while writing this.

Yeah! Thanks for a cool ride, Vic. Oh, and I am sorry about your family’s decision on your musical aspirations. Remember not to let down your dreams. You are a true drummer at heart, Vic!
