A Simple Life

We spent the afternoon at a fishing village, a stone's throw away from KL's home in Kuantan.
Tanjung Api is said to be the place where fishermen unload their catch of the day. However, on arrival we were told that they have since moved to a brand new complex up the river. Posted by Hello

We were however, not disappointed by the ever-friendly local boys. We spent some time chatting and laughing at their antics before moving on to taking some photos. Posted by Hello

Going bananas

These photos were taken near the Kuantan market when we were out foraging for local food and groceries to bring back to London.

It was an eventful and very 'fulfilling' day - not only we managed to get bags of chinese herbs, curry powder, salted fish but we also managed to stuff our faces with the local food - Malay laksa, char keow teow, lekur, ikan bakar, Kemaman coffee and more lekur!! Posted by Hello

Journey to Perfume Pagoda

The Perfume Pagoda is located on the suburbs on Hanoi, only accessible through the river. Boatmen readily waits to bring you on a scenic journey along the waters. Posted by Hello

The limestone hills forms a beautiful backdrop as a lone boatman pedals along the river. Posted by Hello

Our journey to the pagoda also brings us through the vast open fields of rice. The harvest season gives us fields of gold as far as the eye can see. Posted by Hello
