Been busy, been lazy. Yup, that's me.

Ok, lets get started. We (me and the other 2 families) went to 3 days trip to Terengganu on early this month. It was quite an adventure because it's my first time travelling with my uncles and cousins. Fun and yet tiring. First time travelling with 5 persons in a car (macam sardin!). Driving all the way to Terengganu was such an experience. Narrow roads, no highways (we took Yong Peng-Segamat-Kuantan road) with lots of lorries, tankers, hills, palms estates and most worst is no R&R (one in Muazzam, one in Gambang)!, so save your bladder. 

We took off around 8.30am and finally arrived at 4.30. Stayed at Nurul Homestay in Dungun (near to the Uitm) for 2 nights. Homestay here is quite cheap. We booked a 3 bedroom semi-d house for Rm 170/night and its enough to house 20 of us. 

I'm sharing with you some of the our moments during the trip.

Me, my sis & cousins (the one wearing blue tudung, Ina, she's going to further study in Uitm Dungun, that's the reason we're off to Terengganu)

Brunch at Muazzam. Pehh lapar gila. Tapi tak boleh kenyang sangat, nanti mengantuk.
Still have looonggg way to go.

The beautiful Masjid Kristal. It was extremely hot day. Jalan sikit-sikit amek gambar ape yang patut aje.

Teluk Bidara Beach. Went the in late afternoon, water quite warm. Tapi tak apa, asalkan boleh mandi. Horeeeee!!

Ok, here what i love:
The batik at Pasar Payang. So many choices and colors and beautiful designs and made you "ooohhhh...waahhhh". End up bought 1 for me and 1 for mak.
The beach and the 'kampung' scenery.
The delicious kuih akok, the warm roti paung (sebuku tu sekali makan aje)
Heavy breakfast (nasi dagang, nasi minyak, nasi lemak, tapi kuah manisss)

Hopefully we can go there again some other time.
