I planned for a stopover at Bukit Mertajam to visit an old friend.
We arrived 2 hours earlier than our dinner appointment, so we made a ‘round-hill-tour’. Bukit Mertajam has a nicely reserved park where the locals exercise during morning and afternoon hours. I really like the tea spa at the foot hill. We sat down and tasted the tea egg (RM1.20) but no time for an hour leisure tea spa.
I am impressed by the establishment of St. Anne Catholic Church.
There is another old abandoned church near the cemetery on the way to Mengkuang Dam. The place reminds me about Angkor Wat ruins.
