Meeting the Locals – Taib Aur

On the first night of my trip in Kuala Terengganu, I was too tired to go anywhere for dinner. As the hotel is pretty secluded from town, I decided to Google and look for restaurants nearby to the hotel. True enough, I found a place called Ganu Cafe which is about 3 mins drive from the hotel.

After I had dinner – Tomyam and Kang Kung Belacan, I then about to walk back to my car, then it started pouring. While waiting for the rain to subside, I saw a painting shop. The guy inside looked pretty busy and I did not want to disturb. He then called me in and asked me to sit down to chat. We ended talking until past midnight.

We spoke about a lot of things, but most of the things we talked about was about the places that I can go to visit since I’ve not been to Kuala Terengganu for a long time. In fact – I can say that this is my first real visit. One thing to conclude is that there are a lot of things to see here and I will certainly come back again. He pointed to me to various places that I can go – and it will be showcase on my blog (of course).
