Mid-Year School Holiday; 5-9 June 2009

Balik Kampung and the Scenic Drive Home

School holiday is here again and due to the current H1N1 scare, air travel is off limits. So we went back to basics and took a drive back to Alor Setar (Alog Setag) and came back to Subang Jaya via the scenic coastal route - Kelantan, Terengganu & Pahang. It took 2 days and 2 nights to get home with frequent stops along the road, as and when we fancy; but the whole trip was worth it!

The things we often took for granted...

Changlon & Alor Setar

Durian tree behind the house

Chempedak waiting to ripe

Rice field as far as the eyes could see...

What joy...

Muhairiz & Dania

Sights along Grik-Kroh route

An unidentified mountain along the highway, normally covered by curtain of clouds.

Gunung Reng, Batu Melintang, Jeli

Pantai Cahaya Bulan (PCB), Kota Bahru, Kelantan

The colourful PCB

Sun shining from behind

Adin's favourite... feeling the waves splashing on his feet

A subtle hint of colour coordination

Don't have to go to Turkey to shop in Istanbul... Just go to Kota Bahru.

Tok Bali

Tok Bali Bridge

Sup Belut (Eel soup) at Tok Bali... a delicacy? Indeed.
Just like Unagi in soup...


Pantai Bukit Keluang, Kuala Besut

Another scenic beach in Terengganu - Pantai Penarik, Setiu

As we enter Kuala Terengganu town center....

Pantai Kelulut... close to heart with fond memories...
