Terengganu Trip 2012

I planned this trip early this year for six of us, En. Shahril's good friends and their partner. We are supposed to go to Pulau Redang but we don't want to take the risk crossing the South China Sea when the weather is so unpredictable. With less than a week all islands in the East Coast will close for monsoon season, we're decided to just stay at Kuala Terengganu.

One couple couldn't make it last minute and left us with two couple for this trip. We rent a Viva for 2 days and drive around Kuala Terengganu from the break of dusk til late night.

One thing that I'm very excited in this trip is to explore Terengganu food. Of course I did some research before I'm aboard the plane, I don't want to miss any good eateries there.

Keropok lekor. Ikan celup tepung. Satay ikan. Nasi dagang. Nasi minyak. Steamboat. Yum yum yum!
