Mahaguru58's East Coast Travel Photos

Here are some photos that I took during my trip to the East Coast of the Malaysian Peninsular recently.

This is one of the fruit stalls at the Temerloh Rest Area of the East Coast Highway just after crossing the Pahang River.

Sweet Honey Jambus being sold at the Tropical Fruits Stalls at the Temerloh Rest Area.

This is myself posing at the beach off Taman Gelora, Kuantan, Pahang.

The East Coast Mall in Kuantan, Pahang Darul Makmur, just minutes from my in laws kampong at the outskirts of the business capital of Pahang.

Pekan Melayu, a part of the East Coast Mall business complex in Kuantan, Pahang Darul Makmur, one of the latest business complexes opening in the East Coast of the Peninsular.

May this complex generate more business opportunities for the traders and entrepreneurs for the people there. Insya Allah.

One of our favorite stopovers is the famous 'Keropok Lekor' makers @ Hafisah Keropok Lekor Tanjong Lumpur, Kuantan, Pahang.

These ladies prepare the 'Keropok Lekor' from fresh fish meat that is really delicious. The Keropok Lekor used to be a bit thicker back then but nowadays they roll it out in a slimmer version. Guess inflation has arrived at the East Coast too, eh?

One of the staff preparing keropok lekor out of freshly processed fish meat and wheat flour. Its rolled by hand like a long sausage and then immediately fried in boiling cooking oil.

The sun was starting to set by the time we were ready to leave so I just whipped out our digital camera and started to snap these amazing shots of the spectacular sunset views that really mesmerized me with their beauty!

The keropok looks good, and I've yet to find a decent keropok losong in Klang/Selangor.

Keropok sagu- is it similar to the one in Sarawak?

I think so bro. Have yet to sample the ones sold at Hafisah's.

Usually, we just have the keropok lekor and sata.

Problem with such places are the flies problem.

Must be due to the fish meat and paste aroma that draws them in?

Anyway, we can't expect those folks to be able to set up shop as what we are used to in malls and superstores in KL, etc?

I do look forward to meeting up with you one of these days.

Maybe at an 'Ikan bakar ' spot that you can recommend in Klang?
