kuantan... part 1

gene's parents were teachers in kuantan and they lived there for 30 years, they have not visited kuantan since moving to KL. they were chatting of some old stories over dinner monday night and talked about making a trip there, it was a last minute decision, and since everyone was free, we hoped into the family avanza and off we went for a little road trip the next morning. the family (gene's parents, sister, niece + gene & i) reached kuatan late tuesday afternoon, did some visiting of some old friends of the parents and checked into hotel.

morning at sungai lembing the cowboy town, canon 350d
next morning a friend of the parents brought us to a quaint little village, sungai lembing, 40 minutes drive from kuantan town. it is famous for its tin mining and has the deepest underground tunnel in the world, now closed. a nearby hill called bukit panorama, is a popular place to watch the sunrise.

  3. Wow, wow, wow! I love all these pics Ali..had always wanted to do street photography..especially at unfamiliar kampungs or small villages..heard about Sg lembing before but never seen such photos like this. If any of you are part time reporters, you can sell the pics and stories to newspapers and they'll love it!
