    Chilli

    Don't let these small little pale green stuffs fool you. This is some chilli variation and is almost 3 times hotter than regular red chilli.

    This thing is almost welcome for all my meals, but may not be suitable for ang-moes' tongues that only used to grind pepper. I have a friend having hiccups for hours taken one of this.

    Surprise!! Surprise!!

    Boring....

    You won't find too much traditional music or dance, as women are forbidden from entertaining in public. The state has strict laws controlling the sale of alcoholic beverages, which cannot be purchased in stores, hotels, or most restaurants.

    Chinese restaurants, however, are permitted to sell beer to their patrons. Consumption of alcohol will be restricted within the restaurant premises.

    Illegal Turtle Eggs Selling

    Turtle Eggs

    Sea turtles are facing extinction and all sea turtle species are now declared as endanger & protected species. Please do not encourage illegal harvesting of turtle eggs by creating the demand of purchasing these eggs out of curiosity.

    Look at the statistic of turtle sighting and the declining number of giant leatherback sea turtle. Beside their natural predators such as sea birds, monitor lizards, black tip reef sharks, illegal eggs selling will put those turtle into no chance of surviving. Do I need further proving?

    Eat more chicken eggs instead.

    Look at this, this is right in the middle of Kota Bharu city centre, there's a police station in between Male and Female. This is how Kota Bharu look alike, don't try to be funny kissing your lover in the public, you will get yourself into deep trouble.

    Motorcycles Zipping in and out

    If you are driving around here, do be careful with the motorcyclist. There are many youngsters that have no license but rode like road terror around here. Most don't wear any helmet as it is perceived to be a norm since they are just riding around the "neighbourhood"

    Restaurant Turn "Pub" at night

    by danachow Written Aug 27, 2007

    Since that Kota Bharu is in Kelantan state, the only real real Islamic state in Malaysia, drinking openly is actually prohibited. You cannot find any lottery ticket counter here as well.

    If you come crashing into a Chinese restaurant in KB at night, don't be too surprise it feels rather dingy because it is true! Seeing that Chinese restaurant is the only place where liqour trade is allowed, naturally it turned into a rather pub-like environment at night, so much so, the waitresses turned to be GRO sort of service too.

    But if you don't want to get disturbed, try go with a girlfriend and mostly they will leave you alone. They will even serve the food you order too without much questions!
