Apa Ada Dengan Tanjung Piai? (Gambar)

Pilihan Raya Kecil (PRK) Tanjung Piai yang bakal diadakan tidak lama lagi telah melonjakkan nama Tanjung Piai, yang sebelum ini mungkin tidak begitu dikenali selain dalam kalangan Bangsa Johor.

Kawasan Tanjung Piai terletak di selatan Johor, dalam daerah Pontian dan tidak jauh dari pekan Kukup; namun dari sudut persempadanan pilihan raya pula, kawasan Parlimen Tanjung Piai meliputi dua kawasan Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) iaitu N.55 Pekan Nenas dan N.56 Kukup.

Tanjung Piai mungkin tidaklah segah nama destinasi-destinasi pelancongan lain di Johor yang lebih popular seperti Legoland dan Puteri Harbour Theme Park di Iskandar Puteri, Desaru, Johor Bahru, Gunung Ledang, Pulau Besar, Pulau Rawa dan sebagainya; namun tahukah anda bahawa di sinilah letaknya tanah paling selatan di benua Asia?

Taman Negara Tanjung Piai terletak di hujung paling selatan Semenanjung Malaysia dan di sini juga letaknya titik paling selatan di tanah besar Eurasia.

Tempat jatuh lagi dikenang, inikan pula tempat bermain, nama Tanjung Piai amat istimewa kepada saya, ibu dan kakak-kakak kerana banyak kenangan manis bersama arwah ayah di sini.

Beberapa tahun yang lalu, ketika arwah ayah masih ada, kami sering ke Tanjung Piai, Kukup dan Pontian selain daerah-daerah lain di Johor, dan pada satu ketika, kami pernah ke Tanjung Piai hampir setiap minggu sehingga saya sudah biasa dengan kawasan ini kerana telah berbelas kali ke sana.

Tanjung Piai kaya dengan keindahan semulajadi, dikelilingi oleh hutan paya bakau yang sangat cantik dengan kedipan kelip-kelip di sesetengah kawasan pada waktu malam.

Kalau mengikut kawasan di bawah Parlimen Tanjung Piai, ekonomi penduduknya tertumpu kepada perikanan, pertanian dan ekopelancongan.

Makanan lautnya sangat segar dan antara yang paling saya rindui ialah ‘baby sotong’, ketam dan otak-otak yang kami nikmati di Tanjung Piai Resort, iaitu sebuah resort yang dibina di atas air berhampiran dengan jeti nelayan dan tidak jauh dari Taman Negara Tanjung Piai.

Kawasan perkampungan sekitar Tanjung Piai sentiasa tenang, berbeza dengan suasana di pekan Kukup yang dipenuhi dengan restoran-restoran makanan laut yang agak sibuk ketika hujung minggu.

Menjelang PRK nanti, khasnya dalam tempoh berkempen, kawasan yang tenang ini akan menjadi sibuk dan akan dipenuhi oleh pemimpin dan petugas parti-parti politik dari seluruh negara; termasuk mereka yang belum pernah berkunjung ke Tanjung Piai selama ini.

Semoga penduduk Tanjung Piai akan membuat pilihan yang tepat dengan memilih pemimpin yang berjiwa besar, berwibawa serta amanah demi memastikan kesejahteraan rakyat sentiasa terbela.

Di bawah ialah sebahagian daripada koleksi gambar yang kami rakamkan di sekitar kawasan Tanjung Piai beberapa tahun yang lalu.

The Best Sate Kambing!

26 01 2018

Looking for a very delicious sate kambing or lamb satay?

A few days ago, on our way home from Tangkak in Johor, we purposely drove to Pedas, a small town in the district of Rembau in Negeri Sembilan to buy tasty sate kambing from a small road-side stall owned by Encik Sudirman and his wife Azizah.

Their sate kambing is the best sate kambing that we had ever tasted, well marinated, tender and juicy; and for us they are tastier than the sate kambing offered at the popular Restoran Sate Wak Radol in Taman Sri Skudai, near Johor Bharu.

Other than their scrumptious sate kambing, the friendly couple also offer tasty chicken and beef satay, all at a very decent price.

We came across the satay stall last year, as we drove to Pedas looking for a place for dinner while we were at the Nation Buidling Camp in Ulu Sepri and this is the third time we had the chance to enjoy their delicious satay.

Located near the Pedas Police Station, it opens at around 6:30PM or on wards, so if  you happens to be in the town of Pedas, please give it a try.

But if you are planning to purposely drive to Pedas for the satay like we did this time, please contact the stall owner in advance to make sure that they are open for business.

Please click the first photo for their phone numbers.

The coordinates for the stall is 2.620221, 102.058153.





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.

The Boating School is one of my favourite rides in Legoland Malaysia.

It is the ride that I would first go to every time I visit the park.

Terbaik! Ikan Baung Tempoyak @ Restoran Nasir Corner, Segamat

24 12 2017

Restoran Nasir Corner, Segamat, Johor.

Wondering where to have lunch while in Segamat?

As Segamat is known for its fresh water fishes and prawns, ‘ikan baung’ is the ‘must-try’.

During our visit to Segamat early this week, my parents and I had lunch at the popular Restoran Nasir Corner in Taman Utama Segamat, Johor.

The restaurant which is popular for its fresh ‘ikan baung’ and huge fresh water prawn or ‘udang galah’ dishes also offers lots of other very Malay dishes, including the very tasty kerabu and a huge selections of vegetable dishes which are very, very tasty.

Despite feeling rather full, I ate more than I usually do, as the food served are just really delicious especially the tasty ‘ikan baung’ and the kerabu.

For me ‘ikan baung’ is tastier than ‘ikan patin’. 

The owner of the restaurant is a very friendly man, he stopped at our table a few times, asking us if we enjoy the food. 

Below are some photos of the restaurant.

Photos: Serene Dungun Vs Lively Pasar Malam

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!

Ever wonder what it was really like to fly during the Golden Age Of Flying?

These photographs of the Golden Age Of Flying which have been restored in full colour and compiled by Airlineratings.com. shows us how flying was like in the 1950s.

At that time, only the very wealthiest could afford flying and passengers were dressed in their finest attires.
