A Trip To Kuala Sepetang

Kuala Sepetang... anyone heard of this place? It is 11 km away from Taiping, it was my first trip to Kuala Sepetang. Made two phone calls for directions and PRESTO! We Arrived Safely!

According to my "sources," Kuala Sepetang is a L-shape town. Yes, true enough, itis a very small town where even 11 year old boys zoomed about in motorbikes without wearing helmets. And the best thing is, the police station was just meters away. Living in a small town has its advantages, I presume that everyone knows everyone there.. hahahaha..





Kuala Sepetang is a fisherman's village.. when we arrived around 4pm, most of the fishermen were back, unloading their "treasures" from their boats... I would love to go there again.. WHY? Cos of the FOOD! hahhaa.... Tomorrow, the food pictures!

  18. Used to be called 'Kuala Sepagi' becoz majority of the tourist got lost just like your need to make two phone call can merely arrive in the afternoon. Those days no cell phone yet even worst to get there in time so the Penghulu renamed it "Kuala Sepetang". :P

  23. the pictures remind me of the water color paintings I tried to paint when I was a young boy. Images of floating boats anchored to the jetty is always delightful and soothing at times; it can be in water color, oil on canvas or just good ol' snapshots, all are equally striking.
