my wife wanted sata (fish flesh mix with coconut steamed in banana leaves, tastes rather sweet) & otak-otak (fish flesh mix with coconut and chilli powder grill over slow fire in a coconut leave) and we had that before leaving Besut Jetty.
my third son wanted nasi kerabu (purple flower-tinted coloured rice with herbs and vegetables to be taken with either fry or grilled chicken, beef or flour-coated fried fish. we had that for breakfast along the way. there was an american lady posting on her blog and taking pictures of the kerabu rice at the stall.
my second son wanted to have the taste of fried ice-cream so we make a stopped the batu buruk just ahead of kuala terengganu on the way back to putrajaya. i had my first fried ice cream there years ago.
all i wanted was the delicious succulant keropok lekor or fish sausage. unlike the dried fish crackers the local eats it straight out of the steamer while the more "jakun" outsiders eat it deep fried.
anyway we were driving slowly at merang and suddently there were loads of cars parked by the road side and we thought there was a wedding but then we saw long line of people waiting while others carrying bundles and bundles on both arms like a a king kong. and suddently we saw this.
