Kelantan day 2

After breakfast at the hotel we went straight to kampung laut to visit my uncle and at the same time i want to see how meat floss (serunding) was made . By boat, Kampung laut was just opposite my hotel across the river and will take you around 15 minutes to reach , by car it will be a bit longer .

Once you enter kampung laut you can see almost everywhere people manufacture and sell meat floss for a living . In a span of just 500 meter i counted more than 10 houses producing their own brand of meat floss. I was a bit dissapointed to find that they had just finish manufactured a batch of meat floss. If you buy your meat floss here the price will be around 30% cheaper than what was being sold outside .

From kampung laut , we head straight to pantai sri tujuh in tumpat . The weather was glaringly hot and we didn't spend much time there and furthermore JR was sleeping . The scenery along pantai seri tujuh was exceptionally beautiful with rows of traditional malay houses nestled along the coconut tree with the view of white sandy beaches at the backdrop. I wish i have a house here .

Our next destination is pengkalan kubur . There was nothing much to see in pengakalan kubur . Pengkalan kubur is a heaven if you want to find cheap thailand product though i think the price had gone up a bit due to the increasing number of tourist. If you bring your passport i would recommended that you cross the border to Tak Bai in thailand . Although i had never been to takbai but from my experience in Padang Besar and Bukit Kayu Hitam , price are generally 20% cheaper across the border . We didn't buy a single thing in pengkalan kubor but we did sample sate ikan . It was very cheap at 10 cent per piece. In KL 10 cent can only buy you sweets.

From pengkalan kubor we went to pantai cahaya bulan(PCB) , PCB had change a lot since my visit around 10 years ago . A visit to PCB had rekindle my memory as this was the place where me and my buddies first explore kelantan during my junior college days.Enroute back to kota bahru i had a brief stop at MRSM pengkalan chepa (where i study for two years).

Our hotel was located in the city center and around 10 minutes walk to the museum . Before heading back to the hotel we stop by at pasar siti khadijah where we had LAKSAM for dinner.
