11.00 am – Had papayas for breakfast.

11.30 am – Went on over to Jalan Patani’s police headquarters

to pay up my summons.

Park at yellow line = Risk donating RM30 to the police.

11.30 pm – Decided to try out a new eating place recommended by a reader, Daisy.

Jalan Trang had only 1 coffeeshop open and the only stall

was this one. So I guess this must be what you meant, Daisy, right?

The price list.

The tomyam campur.

The kangkung belacan.

The food was ok lah. Pretty normal and average. Daisy, you should try Gurney Plaza’s food court stall no.7.

03.30 pm – Had a banana,

chocolate ice cream and

a yoghurt drink for afternoon break.

Or is it Pantai Esen? Confusing.

Spotted rubber trees along the way.

Hiking by the seaside. What a view.

Lots of coconut trees.

The tarzan tree.

After about 15 minutes of hiking, I saw the side of it.

The tua pek kong temple built deep into the hill.

The stone plaque says ‘1980’. I’m guessing that it’s the year built.

On the way back, I spotted a tall rock and

decided to climb from one rock to the other to reach the peak.

06.30 pm – Went to Tempoyak Cove Pier.

A long and sturdy bridge built by/for the fishermen of Teluk Tempoyak.

Teluk Tempoyak’s awesome ikan bakar food court.

stir fried chicken wings with mushroom,

belacan chicken and

a big bowl of curry fish head

for dinner.

3 pair of socks

for RM23.

Mi Goreng for supper.
