Xmas 2011 In KT Day 2

It’s Christmas! Woke up bright and earlier and headed to the hotel’s cafĂ© for breakfast.

the usual usual
We then headed to:

Chinatown Waterfront
Coordinates: 5.331250, 103.132292

It was our first time here since the completion of the Kampung Cina land reclamation project. The Pulau Warisan was a sight to behold!

ok, that's it

As a local boy, Kampung Cina has both changed (one way traffic going the opposite direction!) and not changed as well. I know it sounds strange because while things may have changed on the outside, despite all this progress I'm glad my ancestral home has not lost its ‘soul’.

good to know its good as new now

We then paid a visit to our former family home:

(which used to bear the address)
No. 18 Kampung Padang 
20300 Kuala Terengganu
Coordinates: 5.329466, 103.136279

which has since been levelled and turned into a parking lot by Hotel K.T. Mutiara. It was a sombre and nostalgic experience.

Lunch was at our favourite chicken rice shop:

Restoran Chuan Kee
Jalan Kota Lama 
20300 Kuala Terengganu
Coordinates: 5.329306, 103.134583

Nothing has changed at all, and the proprietor (and family) still remembers us.

remembered to take photos AFTER all the food was all gone!

Later in the afternoon, Brendan continued his fun and frolic at the pool!


he goes on...

... and on...

... and on!
