Greetings from the East Coast

Salaam Pantai Timur
Finally made that long overdue trip to Kota Bahru, Kelantan. My dad is taking our second car (my wife's) and we (Me, my wife with Rahil and Imaan in tow) drove all the way. It was my first time driving there.

For those who don't know, there are two ways to get to Kelantan from Kuala Lumpur. The first is the shorter hilly route via Gua Musang and the other is the long coastal route though the East coast highway and Terengganu.

We choose the later, mainly because my wife wanted to see her old school in Terengganu.

To cut a long story short (again) the trip took us nearly 11 hours with three short breaks on the way. Passed by some really scenic places but it was really tiring. My wife took over from me at Jerteh, Terengganu.

We also stopped by the sea at Dungun, Terengganu where my wife's old boarding school is located. Though she promised a friend to spit at the gates, she didn't do it. Some of my wife's old friends have very strong feelings about their old school and they are mostly negative. One guy even said that he would burn down the school if he had the opportunity. Don't ask me why. A lot of bitter memories is all I can say.

Anyway, finally reached my parents house at around 10 pm. They were overjoyed to see the kids (and me too).

Thanks for your comments guys.

Hi Zaza. Would love to see your new hair style. ;-) We are now back in KL busy with packing and other stuff.

Lillian, Lucia: After listening to their stories, I am surprised that they did not become "mental" cases.

Binx: Thanks.

Hardy: She has some good memories too I guess.

Tonixe: I did actually. The place was beautiful.

I am curious over the (-)ve vibes of the boarding school such as SMSD. I myself was in SMSTMFP in Pengkalan Chepa, Kelantan (previously known as SMSK) and until today have a strong feelings about the school. In fact every year, we'd have our gathering held at the school. Our alumni is very strong as well.
