Started on our journey up north this morning at around 11am... And the journey was smooth sailing until one km from Nibong Tebal... The one kilometer felt like ten kilometers, snail crawling at the highway. From then to the toll, it took us an hour I guess... and we heard that one lorry overturned and the highway from NB was closed... Every vehicle had to detour to Nibong Tebal and had to use the old trunk road ....
We had to stop here for lunch to prevent my tummy from growling further....
After all, it was pass 2pm already!
And this "captain" is the one who recommended the dishes.... And served us as well...
Sat down to talk to us too... and the bill came to RM36 after much talking... Hahahaa....
After our lunch, we proceeded with our journey and reached Penang around 4pm!
That was about double your usual time for you to reach Penang. But I think all the yummy dishes compensates for the delay. I would love to taste the lemon grass fish head soup!ReplyDelete
That is the consolation cos we were very hungry by then...Delete
If got good company in the car, it is ok to be stuck in a traffic jam because can chit chat and won't be boring.ReplyDelete
You are very right.. it might be torturing...Delete
That's the old trunk road? So so so so much nicer than our miserable so-called "highway".ReplyDelete
No, that one is still the highway.. hahahaDelete

Sien, overturned lorry is the most frustrating one, it brings traffic to a standstill! Too bad it happened before the 2nd bridge, else you can use the 2nd bridge to enter the island..ReplyDelete
