so as i mentioned earlier, here's a proper update of my time in kuantan with joy! they'll be broken up into a few parts cos there's just too many pics.
last monday, my dad fetched me to joy's apartment in ampang. he had to meet a client first so i tagged along.
hub of the city
camming while waiting for my dad in the car. :)
got to joy's, and her apartment is like really nice! overlooks the whole of kl, and you can see the twin towers and kl tower from there. :)
view from her apartment.
spent a night at her house, and we left for kuantan the day after.
stopped by at bukit tinggi for breakfast. :)
kwon lou mee with char siew, which was something like wantan mee but with a tougher texture.
bukit tinggi. it was really small and apparently its like a famous tourist makan place, with all the people from kl who're travelling to the east coast of the penisula stopping by for eats. i think like prolly 80% of the buildings there were restaurants wth.
reached kuantan and dropped our stuff at joy's aunt's place, where we were staying. we then went to east coast mall, which wasn't bad by kuantan standards i guess, but was kinda small for kl standards. i'd say it was about the size of subang parade.
seriously it was quite ok. i mean, they had big apple donuts, levi's, sasa, starbucks, the body shop, GSC cinemas, baskin robbins, padini, KFC, quiksilver, MNG (that outlet was quite big) and lots of other shops. they had a rotiboy too!
but no MCD :(
there was a Brands Outlet there too.
fuiyo so many shoes. it was so ironic that i'd never even heard of Brands Outlet before i came to kuantan.
her dad picked us up after that for dinner, and we passed by all these open air plazas. i think they wanted to start like little indias and chinatowns in kuantan too, from what i saw.
sounds weird as compared to little india :S
went to this restaurant for dinner with the neighbours, whom joy's aunt and dad had invited along.
alor akar seafood restaurant, which was like any other typical chinese dinner restaurant, albeit much cleaner and with better service and staff.
munching on peanuts while waiting for the food to arrive.
that baby in the pic is the neighbour's kid, and he's so cute! he's half angmoh.
ok OMG wtcrap GAWSH in my opinion, this was the absofreakinglutely the best dish on the table that night!
fried tofu with minced beef, parsley and pickled cabbage! yums!! :D
this dish is called 'beggar chicken'. which i found very interesting.
it's chicken broiled with herbs and joy loved it! im ok with herbs, but i wouldnt exactly choose it over a steak, if you catch my drift.
headed to teluk cempedak after dinner.
this is the more commonly visited beach. shuying told me to go to teluk cempedak2, which was more secluded and private.
i saw a walkway by the rocks to the left leading to goodness knows where and i wanted to go there cos it looked so intriguing, but there wasnt enough time. shuying later told me that that was the way to go to TC2. totally missed the opportunity. oh well.
pics we took by the beach. :)
our silhouettes on the sand.
this is so cute. spot the little kid playing hide and seek with goodness knows who. :)
we went to some waterfront after that, which was like an inlet from the ocean.
captured on slow shutter speed with my canon. im surprised its so clear, the pic makes it look like its daytime when the surroundings were actually shrouded in night time darkness.
and then we encountered...the grisly scene of a hit and run!!
haha just kidding(about the hit and run). they certainly looks like the scene of one, dont you think?
but seriously i wonder how those objects came into such positions O.O
