the chaotic scenery at Larkin bus station of people waiting for their buses to come

This was a long trip actually. Started the trip at 12:30 a.m. with an express bus and arrived in Kuala Terengganu at 9:00 a.m. After that, continued with another bus trip at 12:00 p.m. and reached Kota Bharu at 4:00 p.m. (The direct ticket to Kota Bharu from JB had sold out and that was the reason for the divert to Kuala Terengganu.) Took a taxi to Pasir Mas (an illegal one) and in the middle of the journey, the car slammed into the back of a car stopping at a traffic light. The driver managed to swerve and hit the side of the car real bad, and that was scary alright as I was sitting in front beside the driver. Luckily managed to continue until I reached the Pasir Mas taxi station and met an ex-student, Mr. Samsulnahar. Took another taxi to Tok Uban and arrived there at 5:30 p.m. to attend a wedding of colleagues, Mr. Hisham and Puan Norhafizah.

I am now at Tune Hotel in Kota Bharu but too bad I cannot upload photos from the internet kiosk here. Maybe later will do. I will have a few days to explore Kota Bharu and until then, happy holidays everybody.
