If this plate of rice loaded with SEVEN medium-sized prawns cost you only RM4.30/USD1.40, would you have jumped for joy, rubbed your eyes in disbelief, or await the jolt to wake from the dream within a dream?
I love eating in the smaller towns of Perak. The loyal readers (ahem, I can’t dream?) of this blog would be able to relate to this unconventional travelling fiasco, whereby sometimes back-to-back trips to rural areas are considered as normal. While seated idly in the office Facebooking, MSN-ing (all the in the name of …. searching for information, of course) and of course, blogging sounds like the occasional, once-in-a-blue-moon phenomenon.
How things have changed now.
Anyway, a sudden need to travel all the way to Tanjung Piandang (Tanjung what?! Read my first acquaintance with the small fishing village back then) was instead greeted with cheer, instead of jeer. After a prolonged period of stagnancy, I presumed that I would even say yes to an outing to Selama, Hutan Melintang or heck, just gimme Bota anyday!
