Our final day at Kuantan.
After breakfast, the children took their final dip in the Hotel pool before we checked out.
They are quite good with their balancing act. :)
Kuantan is along the eastern coast of Peninsula Malaysia and these are just some of the local produce that the State is famous for. Grand Mummy loves the salt fish and we knew we had to get our hands on some before we headed home. The ikan bilis were fresh and very tasty too.
Lunch was at an eatery recommended by the shop owner. We had asked him where was the best place for lunch and he told us about this place. True to his words, the noodles were tasty and the fried otah was fabulous!
This is why the eastern coast is known as the "Scenic East"
We traveled down crossing towns like Mersing and Kota Tinggi.
Before we dropped Grand Mummy off at her place, she commented that she had a good time. I was thankful... . She also told us that Grand Daddy hadn't been to Sungai Lembing and neither had she. In a way, this road trip reminded me of those that Grand Daddy used to take us; when I was 12 , Grand Daddy took us on a road trip from Johore, then up the eastern coast and to Penang, before headed south back to our home town. The entire road trip took us slightly more than 1 week.
That night, I told Grand Daddy that where he couldn't take Grand Mummy, he could count on us to do so and we would try our best. Daddy and I were also grateful for our friends who made this trip a great one. Though I did have a regret and that was we couldn't see any turtles.
