    No Overtaking in Tanjung Bidara...

    Also, notice the sign on the road itself, NO OVERTAKING...
    Nevertheless as Malaysian drivers are known to overtake each other anyway so if you are a visitor here, don't do this okay.
    Thank God I do not have a car !
    Even when I was walking along this road, I could see cars, lorries, motorbikes...speeding passed me !
    I cursed them !

    Look at the sign !...in Tanjung Bidara...

    Now, we shall move to my 'paradise'...a small village by the sea called Tanjung Bidara.
    It is about 7 km away from Masjid Tanah.
    FIRST of all, look at the sign :
    The photo shows a sign in Malay meaning CAUTION : VILLAGE AREA.
    This is to cautious drivers especially to slow down when driving through the road in Tanjung Bidara.
    We get to see children, old folks & some live stocks crossing the roads !
    You don't want to be in trouble with the village folks...

    A Small 'Surau' in Masjid Tanah...

    Now, this is a 'surau'...or rather a small mosque in Masjid Tanah.
    Situated very near to the Bus /Taxi Station so that easy for Muslims to pray while waiting for their (late) buses !
    A 'surau' is known in English as a chapel...you know, a smaller church; So a surau is a small mosque !
    Very colouful it is too !
    I think Masjid Tanah has almost everything in orange & yellow...

    Papayas in Masjid Tanah...

    Caught these papayas on the trees...somwhere near the stream from the top photo.
    I love papayas but these are too young to eat, I guess...not sure ! Normally the ripe ones are yellowish, yes ?
    I just like them when they are peeled !

    The 'new' mosque in Masjid Tanah

    This is the small mosque in Masjid Tanah (there's another bigger mosque nearby built by the 'government'...).
    Anyway, Masjid Tanah means 'A Mosque From The Soil'...
    It was told that this small town flourished/originated from a mosque built by the first pioneers in this town, situated on the very foundation of the mosque that you could see on my photo.
    That mosque (from the soil/earth...) was long gone hence you could see this 'new' mosque to remember HOW it all started...Click HERE to see more photos of this historical mosque...

    The Police Station in Masjid Tanah...

    This is the Police Station in Masjid Tanah ! No, I have never been detained there but I could get a new passport thanks to a female police officer there !
    My old passport was stolen & it's not easy to get a new one; The officer helped me doing the report that i submitted to the Imigration Department...long story !
    Now, I have been to many countries far away from home !
    Thanks to that dear officer...

    Shops in Masjid Tanah...

    There are many shops in Masjid Tanah...All kind of shops !
    When I was young, I used to go to the town to just walk from one shop to another...Not really buying anything.
    Seeing them now, not much has changed...Maybe more colourful as compared when I saw them when I was young...

    Old shophouses of Masjid Tanah

    Around the T-junction area of the Masjid Tanah town is a few row of old shop houses that dating back from the early 20th century when the town started to take shape. The architecture of the shophouses are something interesting to watch for and gives this part of the town its own character.
