Winsome Pekan















Part II, and some of my other pix that ended up on the chopping floor...




















That room which reminds me of my grandma's old house :) At RM55 per night, you can't beat Chief's Rest House for bumper value.














I managed to sneak a quick walking tour of the Royal Quarter before heading back to Kuantan. It was postcard-pretty traditional houses galore :)















My favourite animal - after dogs and cats and goats ...




















If you've never seen opor daging in your life - nah!















The Abu Bakar mosque, a majestic sight even against the overcast sky backdrop

Now. Where next? Betong? Gopeng? Dungun .... Just randomly rattling off places that have been suggested to me.

To be continued ;)

Hmm...I think I must have eated opor daging loads of times before...without knowing what it was called :P (I'm from Kuantan) This one looks really good...

Yes it was very good :) Amazing value for money too. That enormous plate plus one tall mug of Nescafe tarik - really rich and creamy too - was only RM4.20. Where to find???

It bears an uncanny likeness to Perak's very own rendang tok.
