In Malaysia, you need to keep your gates closed and locked at all times. Never let off your guard.
Those wild dogs can easily slip in without any notice and thefts are nothing uncommon here. Same goes with your personal belongings.
Another awesome morning, enjoying my breakfast without disturbance.
Keeping "singing" birds is also another pastime of the people here.
I accompanied YZG to buy kway teow soup breakfast. This is his usual morning hangout where friends gather to chit chat. That sounds like a perfect retirement way of life. For
RM3.00, you get a decent amount of good!
The next stop was to
Pasar Bagi where my uncle sells fruits and ice-cream. I got a chance to experience the life of a hawker for few hours! Super fun and exciting for a holiday trip.
There are lots of stuff sold at the
Pasar bagi so there's no reason not to be there every week.
This is a makeshift seat that we use at the stall. How creative!
My uncle sells awesome ice-cream.
We wrapped up at the
Pasar bagi for the afternoon trip to Hat Yai, Thailand, further up South.
There's this railway leading from Malaysia highway towards Thailand. I saw a container carrying train past by that day. Gotta check out what's this railway line and maybe attempt a train-on-rail trip sometime soon.
The weather is great and view is mesmerizing. Road trips are fun!
Pretty soon, we arrived in Thailand.
You can see this all over Hat Yai. This is an indication of:
- the place is a tourist attraction
- things are all overpriced
- everything is designed for tourism purposes
- nothing much is authentic
- Macdonalds and Starbucks are available
Another reason way people travel to Thailand is for the relatively cheaper medicine. You can most of the commonly used medicine off the shelf!
Even Ronald Macdonalds had to be tourist-rized.
Check out this Angry bird sauce series!
This is really innovative. Placing the drinks and chilling it at the counter for your convenience. (less friction to have you buy one)
Didn't try but hey, Strawberry and Chocolate ice-cream!
This was, so-so. Nothing fantastic but something different.
Dinner was at the roadside stall where we has some Pat Thai.
This is traditional ice-cream served using coconut shell. That is average as well.
You can still see people selling pirated software along the streets. Something that became irrelevant in Singapore since 2006.
OH YES KUEH. My favourite....
I was told that elephants start appearing on the streets at 11pm onwards but i did not check it one. Once again, another tourism gimmick.
