Wonderful Things I Saw On The Way To Kuala Terengganu

On the way to Kuala Terengganu I saw

the Petronas Mountain,

pintu-masuk-zoothe Mini Zoo Kemaman,

kelip-kelip1the Sungai Yak-yah Firefly Sanctuary in Kampung Ibok,

railtrack-kemamana railway track in Kemaman,

big big fires at the Petronas Complex in Kerteh,

bukit-tebuk-dungunthe Bukit Tebuk Tunnel in Dungun and a lot of beautiful beaches.


We stopped at the D’ Paya Serai  at the Petronas Mountain for breakfast.

I wanted to go to the toilet but they locked all the toilets  because there is no water.

I think it is not a good place to stop because a few weeks ago there is no water at this place too.

  1. About the water problem at the station as of today it has been repaired at a cost of more than Rm100,000.00. It taken longer time to fix it as the broken water pipe is directly under the travelling lane of the KL – Karak Highway just right in front of the station.

    Not only that Petronas also need to obtain approval from Lembaga Lebuhraya Malaysia and MTD if they want to replace the water pipe.

    They solved the problem by rerouting the water pipe heading northbound and cross the highway under the existing culvert and again heading southbound towards the station.

    Well after all of that, now all the 20 toilets and 8 showers rooms are open for use again. Actually i am so happy as it is my regular place to stop.


  2. Kg Ibok is very close to my heart. I spent wonderful times there when I was in the primary school. I did what most kids did – swimming in the now-shallow Ibok river, trapping Arowana for lunch!, harvesting ubi kemili (ubi keling to us Tranung folks) and groundnuts.

    I had an aunt and three aunties-once-removed (mok sepupu lah tu) and many cousins and second cousins there.

    Bukit Taka was where the first husband of my Mak Long was killed by not one but two tigers while he was tapping rubber. Story had it he had been fore-warned by the tiger, through scratch marks on the ground. He put up a big fight before succumbing to the might of the tigers.
