This is our annual weekend trip to Kota Bharu.
We tried our best to squeeze out an hour for a detour to Pantai Cahaya Bulan (Moonlight Beach), about 30 minutes from town center.
The objective is to visit a hidden gem near PCB, the Pasir Belanda Resort. It is a local village (‘kampung’) style small resort inside the local village. This resort is very popular among the European tourists.
We drove to Ulu Yam Lama to eat the Lor Mee this afternoon.
Today was my first time testing a water proof point-and-shoot camera. I also brought it to Sungai Sendat Waterfall and Sungai Tua for a ‘bath’.
It was a fun half-day trip to the Ulu Yam and spent about an hour with the photowalk.
The venue of Animax 2013 has been shifted from 1 Utama (2012) to Sunway Pyramid this year.
It was frightening not seeing any cosplay participants by 10am.
We decided to do some windows shopping and return to the blue concourse. To our relief, the crowd arrived.
We did not enter the event held in the concourse area because the venue was simply to small to hold the crowd. I personally think that it was a wrong choice of venue to hold such event.
A month after Chinese New Year, the aboriginal tribe named Mah Meri at Carey Island (Pulau Carey, Malaysia) celebrate the ancestor’s day (Ari Muyang).
There are 5 villages in Pulau Carey, each celebrate Ari Muyang at different dates.
Some are private ceremony to the community but some are opened to public. The only Mah Meri hamlet that welcomes visitors is the community at Kampung Sungai Bumbun.
Hari Kraf Kebangsaan (HKK) or National Craft Day is an annual event hosted by Kompleks Kraf (Craft Complex) Kuala Lumpur.
It was a good event for tourists to witness and even to participate in the Malaysian crafts.
Craftsmen from all over Malaysia have been invited to the event to showcase their works. The picture above is the making of shadow puppet (Wayang Kulit) from cowhide.
If you ask me or any Malaysian what is HKK, most of us may not know the answer. Some may thought it meant Hong Kong Kaki.
Hari Kraf Kebangsaan (HKK) is mostly visited by Malay. I saw very small percentage of the visitors who are tourists or other races. This was just a personal observation on a particular day, so it may not be a fair comment on the overall turn out.
Personally, I think HKK is a colour event that Malaysian and tourists should pay a visit.
