Yess...I'm here in Hulu Terengganu on work assignment. Arrived here late last night after the long drive from KL. The place is not too bad lah. Green all around, kampung environment where folks are so relaxed and contented with life.
The program with the kids will start this afternoon - about 30 of them from the nearby school. My team is already excited to get themselves going.
Kopi susu, roti bakar and BB - perfect combination :)
Highly recommended...kepok lekor panas from Kelulut.
Ummpp..what else is interesting here? Yes the food, of course!! On the way here yesterday, we stopped at Dungun and lepak at Dungun Kopitiam for roti bakar and coffee. Then, somewhere near Marang we gate crashed at this keropok lekor joint - Keropok Lekor Kelulut. Fuhh..terangkat bila makan kepok panas-panas tuh!! Much to our surprise, the kepok is all ikan. Unlike the ones found in KL, all flour - keras boleh baling kat dinding!
We went to a batik factory this morning and were shown the batik making process. Though I have seen similar batik works before, this one was unique in many ways. Why?? Well, we got to buy the batik sarong fresh from the MokCik's storage - the makeshift shelves located in the kitchen. Mahal tu...and she was so kind to give us discounts for the batik sarong that we got. All in we borong like more than 30 pieces. One for Mom, one for my sisters and one for everyone back home!!! Even the boys in my team got into the spirit of buying batik sarong. Beli untuk Mak, adik kakok and girlfriend sepasang dua..heh..heh.
We'll be here in Kuala Telemong till tomorrow. Am staying in a homestay - not as grand as the last one I was at. Boleh lahhh.....
Till then, ciao from Gannu :)
