    Floating Mosque

    by muddybok Updated Sep 18, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Masjid Tengku Tengah Zaharah was built in such a way that it gives an illusion that it is floating on water. The mosque is painted in pristine white, plain and simple. It is located almost 6km from state capital, next to Kuala Ibai.

    I am not too sure whether it is lighted at night. I was once curious and wanting to visit by night, but my laziness overcomes me.

    Sungai Terengganu

    by muddybok Updated Sep 18, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This shot is taken at the back of the Central Market (Pasar Besar Kedai Payang) towards the back of the China Town of Kuala Terengganu. I was force to take the right curve (after Sri Malaysia Hotel) and was surprise to find China Town & most importantly the Central Market at the end of Jalan Bandar.

    I was told that early morning (7-8am) the river is quite busy with activities. When I was there, it has pass 9pm & I hardly see any boats ply the river. Anyway, I see enough boats at Pulau Perhentian the day before.

    P/s: River bank and market place are my favorite photographic themes lately.

    Keropok Losong/Lekor@Terengganu

    by muddybok Updated Sep 17, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Keropok lekor is actually evolved from keropok losong which contain more fish meat than flours. Keropok losong is originated from Kampung Losong near the State Museum of Terengganu. Keropok losong is good to eat even just after the cooking process is completed. Kerepok Lekor needs to be fried in order to cover the over-powering taste of excessive flours.

    I bought few ringgits of steamed keropok losong to take away with some chili sauce especially for keropok. My travel pal (cum navigator) was distracted by nasi dagang store and we stop by for the nasi & carnage the keropok at the nasi dagang store as well. The store owner is so friendly and allows us to use his utensil for our keporok chili sauce and spare our finger from the heat of the keropok. The size of uncut keropok looks like ehem but this one is very chewy.

    I hope this tip will not get deleted because of my suggestive comment on keropok. Click on 2nd picture for more chewy pleasure.

    Terengganu State Museum

    by muddybok Updated Sep 17, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Technically, I have visited the Terengganu State Museum, but I have not explored the museum due to my limited time at Kuala Terengganu. I will surely revisit this place when I have more time. May be next time with my kids, where iPod, Notebook PC & CD players could be some of the exhibits in there by then.

    The Terengganu State Museum Complex is styled in the traditional Terengganu architecture. The museum consists of four blocks housing 10 galleries. It incorporates a fisheries museum, also maritime museum which showcases the people’s seafaring past. (facts from brochures)

    The Kampung/Bukit Losong where the museum located is "the place (origin)" for delicious keropok losong & keropok lekor.

    Istana Maziah

    by muddybok Updated Sep 17, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Istana Maziah is lies at foot hill of Bukit Puteri and was built in 1897. It was constructed by20 craftsmen using limestone mixed with clay, coarse salt, egg yolk & honey. Wonder it taste anything like "mud cake"?

    Now, the place is serves as venue for royal birthdays & wedding. It also serves as venue for conferment of titles and welcoming VIPs.

    I didn't explore the front portion of the building, the effect from my travel pal is superb. Anyway, if you're there please remember to explore the front section. Mine picture is taken from main gate & it happens to be the side of the building.
