Pseudo east coast road trip- the kuantan journey
18-20th November 2011
This thing, was actually not so well planned. I’ve just move out to Hospital Hulu Terengganu and there- as a rockie they just reassigned names for the courses of the months, all there- my name happened to popped up at some course to attend in kuantan, lol.
There are few facts
1. only me to go? Huhu.. the 1st thing I did asked was- anybody else? And atthat moment, the answer was really so disappointing
2. I’ve never been there. Or be it clearer this way- no land is within my familiarity . I’ve been nowhere except home, myworkplace and the land in between them haha..soo pathetic.
3. my wish list of the year- includes an east coast road trip is not yet comes to reality. This was originally my intention to see it myself the beauty of terengganu beaches that stretch all along the eastern part of the country
T’was my first thought. Then I just accepted it. Argue and I will get nothing but being angry (which I doonntt like at all) so here I am, indulge myself in what I call- the pseudo east coast road trip (in which in conclusion is a bit different from my so called wish of the year)
Being off duty on 17th, I lazed off with some map readings and hotel booking. Honestly I’m bit hyper. Doing things for the first time, haha.. makes adrenaline rushes faster in my veins. It reminds me back on my ITALIAN JOB 2009 I was hyper nearly one week before starting off to Rome and start venturing with Sarah. The thing is, this is not the same. Feeling so unfamiliar with a land which is w.i.t.h.i.n my home country sweet Malaysia is so funny I cannot handle it haha.. at last it happened that I was talking to Subbha and he offers to teman me there from kemaman onward. Then only I was able to sleep soundly haha..(thanks to him )
Starting off at 8925km, Friday noon.
memulakan perjalanan ini dengan namMu ya Allah
setiap langkahku pintaku diberkati
The traffic was initially clogged with org2 g smayang jumaat. I went for early lunch, went to internet café, get some air &jajans this and that then it goes smoother than I thought. The road is very comel and you can actually just go forward, of course la sometimes there’s short run of kwsn pembinaan bla2 but not that bad like those to-fro kt- kberang very2 bad huhu..
you know, the only things that comes to my mind was- OMG, this country is a real treasure I’ve missed it all haha.. I never know the beaches are so enchanting I can’t keep my eyes away, Subhanallah!..it’s so funny I’ve here in trg for quite a time and there’s only few times – can really count it how many times I’ve time to at least give a glance to these treasures. The most I’ve reached before was the Kelulut Beach. No further.
Then Kerteh. there OMG I thought this country has it all. From nature to resources, it has it all. No wonder Trg people is kaya kaya haha..
Then the Mesra Mall. Heard about it a lot, just never been there. It’was surprisingly quite a small mall (as compared to m.y imagination hahaha)
Then Kijal there I met Subbha and from there onward faiz drive his car in front of us and, honestly
-one thing is I didn’t read much of the SIGNBOARD anymore hihihi.
-second is, from there onward I did drive s.l.o.w.e.r hahahah. (jgn marah ye encik police)
-third is, so ME I cannot sit long and not talking, and talking makes me tell something I don’t want to tell and baha I surrender to him, he’s very good korek2 rahsia orang 5stars utk awk hihihi..
Around 5pm+ we were there. My TBC kisses the welcoming land long before me. Take some roticanai and some drinks, pray and then checked in. Thanks to them, everything settled before sunset. Diorang went off near maghrib time. and me, just lazed and feel bit melancholic (not a bit, actually so so) till dozed off at 12.
Silelah jgn sedih2 kt bumi kuantan neh
Ready for the course early in the morning.
Breakfast is good I just amik nasik lemak lots of selections but I really cannot handle it pagi2. then off to HTAA for the course. Enjoyed short lectures and hand’s on breakout sessions. Packed till finished at nearly 5pm.
Then back to hotel, get some shower and off again. Pusing2 and there’s again- my passion of nature brings me at the end to have long walk over the esplanade and river bank watching the water until magrib prayer time..
Then spent the whole magrib-isya time at the SAS mosque
Back to hotel after prayer and lazed off.
Read subbha’s wall
Ready for CM yeay!
SILA BERSEMANGAT ye
This time I didn’t take breakfast at the hotel really cannot handle it too early in the morning. Cont with course, -short lectures and more hand’s on skills I loved it.
Quoting Dr Azam-LIFE IS NOT A FIGURE
So damn true..
Steve Job died and his millions dollars cannot bring him back to live.
Course ended at 2+pm and I performed prayer then OFF at 3.
Ila waqtin thaniah.. fursotin thaniah.I’ll be there again, insya Allah.
I’m home at 6.20pm at 9385km
