Penang - Agriculture Expo

Last month, I went to this agriculture expo which was held at Batu Maung, Penang. I was busy the whole day with my part time business and went to this expo around 6pm. Too bad I was late. Nothing much I could see and share them here. Even the aquarium was closed at 6pm. I think they should not close it so early when there is an expo. Hmm, just sharing my opinion. 

I saw a turtle!

Oh great... coming...

Chak! (but too bad the picture was bad)

See ya...

... and I read this.

Not many stalls opened when I reached there.

The whale. It was very funny when a mom told the kid that its dinosaur's skeleton.

Some turtle babies. Cute aren't they? :)

Kelantan - Beijing Mosque

Chinese Mosque, Rantau Panjang or Sultan Ismail Petra Silver Jubilee Mosque and Beijing Mosque (Malay: Masjid China, Rantau Panjang or Masjid Jubli Perak Sultan Ismail Petra and Masjid Beijing) is a Chinese-style mosque in Rantau Panjang, Kelantan, Malaysia.

I was mesmerized by the architecture. I never think that we could build something like this. Very creative and I like it so much.

Kelantan - Wan Khadijah Market

Wan Khadijah Market is a famous hexagon shape market in Kota Bharu. It is one of the most widely photographed market in Malaysia and mostly manned by local female entrepreneurs. Bargaining is one of the essential skill that one finds it useful in Kelantan as Kelantanese loves and enjoys bargaining.

Here was where we parked our cars.

The palace.

The small canon. Cute isn't it?

The banner :)

This is how the market looks like. Nice!

More... inside the building.

Here you can eat whatever you want, and it's pretty hard to choose since they are too many! Oh. There was an incident where we ordered drink and they did not want to serve us. Just because we bought the rice from another stall. Weird thing was some of my friends bought the rice from them! The food stall was the one at the end of the food court, where there were only tables. It was very frustrated to run a business this way. I surely ban this stall forever and for sure will give my friends a warning if they plan to come here. Whose lost then?

The buildings around this market. Pretty interesting :)

Overall, I love this market. To see how hard they work and variety of foods. Its different from what I got in Penang and for sure I like them too!

Just I'm a bit upset with the behavior of the hawker which sells the rice. You must have faith. God is always fair, so don't be so self centered. I was choke and had to run to some other stall to buy drink :(

So, apart from that it was a great experience! :)

Kelantan - Wakaf Che Yeh

Wakaf Che Yeh is a small town in Kelantan, Malaysia. Located about 7 kilometres from Kota Bharu town. 

The town is famous for its daily and weekly market. Wakaf Che Yeh has been progressing well for the last ten years. A small supermarket can also be found at the area. The Lee Rubber which used to be a landmark for Wakaf Che Yeh ( because of the smell) has been relocated to South of Kelantan. Radio Television Malaysia ( Kelantan ) is located at the area.

Its like a usual night market just that its big and more things sold.

Instead of food, they sell many type of clothes too.

I'm not a type who loves window shopping, shopping and bargaining. I didn't buy anything but I did enjoy the place.

Kelantan - Pantai Cahaya Bulan (PCB)

Visitors to Kota Bharu must visit its famous beach, Pantai Cahaya Bulan (Moonlight Beach). It used to be called Pantai Cinta Berahi (Beach of Passionate Love), a name reputedly given by a lovelorn British soldier in a moment of fantasy while he was at the beach during World War Two. Today, some locals still use the old name, although many now prefer to just refer to it as 'PCB'. 

With a long, wide and sandy beach, it is a popular spot for local family outings especially during weekends. The beach is well-developed for visitors' convenience, with a resort hotel, chalets, restaurants, food stalls, a camping ground, public restrooms and changing rooms. 

The journey to the beach from Kota Bharu will take you through quaint, traditional Malay villages. This area is famous for the small industry of traditional handicrafts. Look out for simple advertisements along the roadside as you pass through, indicating batik printing, songket-weaving, brassware and kite making shops. You can buy these handicraft items directly from these producers at a good price.

I have been here before, but it was like 20 year ago or more when I was still a kid. My grandma was still alive, and the place was not like now. Less stall and even less chalet.

Somehow, I prefer the way it was before rather than now. Maybe I'm a bit conservative, lately.

If we are talking about PCB, people will talk about its beautiful beach and also the food here. The crispy food including seafood which are cooked with some flour (deep fried). They are yummy of course! I can't write much about the beach since I could not take any picture of the beach at night. 

You can see many stalls and small restaurants opened at night.

The yummy crispy dish!

I will come again here if I come to Kelantan because my visit this time was short and many places to visit too. Sorry for can't share with you the view in the day time. I promise I will if I visit PCB again :)

Kelantan - Nasi Kerabu Golok

Nasi Kerabu is my favorite dish! Usually it's hard to get it in Penang except at certain night market or during Ramadhan (fasting month). But of course the nasi kerabu you can get in Penang can't defeat the original one in Kelantan.

So, when I was in Kelantan I didn't miss the chance to eat it. The place that I went for nasi kerabu was Nasi Kerabu Golok.

The menu. They sold other dish too but of course I chose my favorite!

The yummy nasi kerabu! This one was Keith's nasi kerabu not mine. Mine was with grilled beef.

For me, the nasi kerabu was good. I like it so much, and so did Keith. But the rest said not so good. So, maybe you can try it and share with me whether it's good or otherwise :)

If it happens that I go to Kelantan again, I will definitely eat here again.

The address : Lot 341, Kampung Huda, Jalan Sutan Yahya Putra 15150 Kota Bharu Kelantan.
