[Gambar] Kenangan Meyaksikan Tembakan Bedil di Kuala Terengganu

1 06 2019

Kita sering terganggu apabila mendengar bunyi letupan bunga api atau mercun menjelang Maghrib di bulan Ramadan, yang tergambar di minda kita ialah sekumpulan kanak-kanak sedang bermain-main sementara menunggu waktu berbuka; walhal mereka sepatutnya bersiap-siap untuk berbuka sama ada di rumah, surau atau masjid.

Tetapi berlainan di Kuala Terengganu, kerana bunyi letupan bedil amat ditunggu-tunggu kerana ia menandakan tibanya waktu berbuka puasa. Malah, waktu imsak juga ditandakan dengan tembakan bedil. Itulah di antara keunikan berbuka puasa di Kuala Terengganu yang sangat saya rindui. Malah, bedil bukan hanya ditembak sepanjang bulan Ramadan sahaja tetapi juga daripada 2 hingga ke 7 Syawal iaitu sepanjang enam hari pertama puasa sunat bulan Syawal. Menurut nenek saya, dahulunya ramai yang memilih untuk terus berpuasa bermula 2 Syawal dan sambutan Hari Raya ke enam lebih meriah daripada Hari Raya pertama.

Telah bertahun berlalu sejak kali kali terakhir saya berpuasa di Kuala Terengganu namun kenangan menunggu di hadapan tingkap rumah nenek bagi menyaksikan tembakan bedil masih segar di ingatan saya. Sebenarnya, sejak sekian lama tembakan bunga api telah menggantikan tembakan bedil, namun ianya masih dikenali sebagai tembakan bedil.

Menariknya, walaupun bunyi bedil amat sinonim dengan bulan puasa di Kuala Terengganu, tetapi masih ramai penduduk Kuala Terengganu sendiri yang tidak mengetahui di mana lokasi sebenarnya bedil ditembak sepanjang Ramadan. Persoalan ini telah membawa kepada satu misi mencari lokasi sebenar tempat bedil ditembak dan pada 5hb Syawal 1431H bersamaan 14hb September 2010M, arwah ayah telah membawa kami ke tapak lokasi tembakan bedil iaitu di atas sebuah bukit kecil bernama Bukit Pak Apil.

Kami berpeluang mengambil gambar dan merakam video daripada satu kedudukan yang selamat seperti yang dinasihatkan oleh mereka yang berkenaan.

10 Longest Bridges in the World

30 01 2018

[Yahoo! News}- With only 22 miles between the UK and France, Boris Johnson reportedly thinks it’s ‘crazy’ that the Channel Tunnel is the only connecting bridge.

Although it’s faced some mocking and controversy, a bridge connecting the two nations could, technically, exist.

Bridge designer and former president of the Institution of Structural Engineers Ian Firth said it was ‘absolutely possible’.

And while a 22 mile bridge might seem longer than your average water crossing, it’s by no means the longest bridge to ever exist.

These are the 10 longest bridges around the world.

 





The Iconic ‘Mee Racun’ of Batu Pahat

30 12 2017

The district of Batu Pahat, Johor is known for the iconic Mee Racun 3G restaurant, which is located in Kampung Kenangan Dato Onn, in front of the Pinetree Hotel.

Featured in the Johor state newspaper, Jauhar, it serves delicious dishes with the ‘racun’ (poison) themed name, such as Kuew Tiaw Racun, Nasi Goreng Racun, and of course, the iconic Mee Racun.

Despite its frightening name, each dish is actually not poisonous at all; but the gravy is red and looks ‘poisonous’, thus leading it to the peculiar name, as what had been explained to me by a lady at the restaurant.

I’ve already eaten at the restaurant three times, the food was constantly tasty and the people who work there are also very kind and friendly.

My personal favourite is the ‘Kuew Tiaw Racun’, a spicy and delicious dish that I really enjoy, where every mouthful was a treat in itself with its unique and distinctive flavour ‘explodes’ in my mouth in each spoonful.

One of my favourite parts of eating the dishes here is to sip in the bone marrow using a straw.

So if you visit Batu Pahat, you won’t want to miss the chance to try these marvellous dishes.

A beautiful view of the near the river mouth of Sungai Dungun, Oct. 24, 2017.

Last month, we made a short trip to Dungun; and that was the first time I spent a night in the seaside town.

It is a lovely town, and I really enjoy the beautiful scenery.

I even visited the Pasar Malam, which was big and lively with rows and rows of stalls selling all kinds of food and drinks.

There are even traditional kuih and food that are not sold in Kuala Lumpur!
