The states of Perak, Pahang and Trengganu are promoting tourism visits to their respective state simultaneously in this year 2017.
While Pahang’s effort is quite noticeable on TV, Perak with their heavy tagline world of wonders.. however seems too quiet though ..
At the beginning of the year Trengganu just could not be seen emphasizing this agenda as they are coping to a more urgent matter ie the flooding in the state. But the Englishman conversing in fluent local dialect Mat Dan Kaki Jalan is gaining tremendous popularity as an unofficial ambassador for the east coast state.
In fact all the three states are facing similar predicaments. The flooding not only affected the three states but also to other areas in the states like Selangor and even Johore.
And we are already nearing the end of first quarter of the year, i guess i better check how they fare ..and nobody is going to pay me for doing that.
Introducing my own humble hometown…
Some sceneries captured around Port Klang.
The scenery above was captured at the fishing village of Kampung Batu 3, Segari in the district of Lumut, Perak.
We made a detour and stop over that evening to get some fresh supply of sea foods we hope to grilled while spending the night in Teluk Senangin by the beach.
We managed to buy and make do with some L size prawns at RM48/kg. while the boat for the fishes and squids was yet to arrive according to the fishmonger. Maybe some other time, we just did not want to wait. Beside the prawns, we also had chickens on the ember that night.
This probally the typical scenario in the morning at the beach where a veteran fisherman, i chatted with, and his big family lives. The catch was not that good today, he said.
The boats arrived at the beach in the morning with the catch in a few bundle of nets. His son who has taken his role casting the crabs will then disentangle the crabs and some fishes that are trapped with it.
He don’t have to reach to customers, because they are always standing there waiting for him to finish the job. The catch you see in this picture was ours. We manage to booked it first before the others. Rm25/kg.
We drove home from Teluk Senangin to traffic crawl last Monday just before the Sultan Yusuff Bridge which crosses the Sungai Perak in Teluk Intan. The price you normally pay for travelling during a festival holidays in Malaysia.
If the end of the previous weeks supposed to be a weekend getaway then we have gotten away practically every week! I am staying put and be lazy this weekend, schools is about to reopen.
I was in Sekinchan last Sunday and was very excited standing at this spot enjoying this breathtaking scenery.
I supposed this is not a river where water flows from the upstream but a man-made irrigation canal for the paddy fields. There are sluices at each stream connecting to every compartment of the paddy fields.
I guess the other half of the paddy field is also about to be harvested very soon.
I also visited the sea side of Sekinchan..
This picture is taken by the opposite side of the river mouth where the more popular Pantai Redang is located.
