Kuala Sepetang To Look See, Look See...

After lunch in Taiping town, we adjourned to Kuala Sepetang, a small village town which is around 18 km away. It was a sunny day and we had a nice slow drive towards the fishing town. For us who always stay in the city all the time, we look forward to visiting a smaller town that reminds us of our childhood days ... the days when development has not taken place yet...

love the scenery here too...
the two rows of mangrove trees...

entering Kuala Sepetang town...

we saw this crowd... bustling with activity...

oh..the famous "pau-s"... all sold out..
must order in advance, so it seems...

wow..really big crowd encircling the stalls..

the locals selling their goods.. prawn crackers...
I bought a few packets.. they were good..

we hang-ed around.. looking for some light snacks..

finally we got a place and ordered these...

but ended up taking laksa...
hhhmm...not bad...

and their curry with prawns and beancurd...

some fried stuff... didn't take that though..

next stop - Charcoal Factory...
