Saturday Drive Around (Tanjung Sepat and Beyond!)

Hello again!

We do apologise for not posting anything in a while. October 2022 had been an unbelievably bad month. I first sprained my lower back, then caught Covid-19 again which meant I spent a week from the 11th to the 17th at home in self-isolation. 

Cat was thankfully spared, and this time around I caught the Omicron variant, which was nothing more than a bad flu, nothing like the miserable Delta variant we had caught in November 2021.

Having sufficiently recovered from both the back sprain and Covid-19 this weekend we decided to take another long drive to our favourite seafood place in Tanjung Sepat. Along the way we stopped by Mimi Dragonfruits to stock up, before heading to Tanjung Sepat.

The seaside town of Tanjung Sepat used to be a fishing village but due to the slow but systemic pollution of the Straits of Malacca, this activity has become less intensive, but still an essential part of daily life here.

Usually a sleepy seaside town during the weekdays it is inundated with tour groups by the bus loads.
We had been to Tanjung Sepat last month, but an unfortunate incident meant that we had to delete the video from that trip. No matter, we move on and learn from our mistakes.

We arrived early and decided to have brunch but instead of Baywatch we decided to give Sin Hock Heng Huat Restaurant a try. It being our first time we took our time perusing their menu before settling on the:

  • Sambal Fried Squid
  • Sweet & Sour Fish
  • Sizzling Bean curd
  • 2 servings of white rice
  • 2 glasses of Iced Chinese Tea

What was the damage? Our seafood spread came to RM88.60 (approximately USD/EUR19). And what was our verdict? Truth be told our tastebuds was more suited to Baywatch next door.

We then got into Puteh and drove a short distance to the fisherman's wharf, where we walked along what's known as Lover's Bridge. The blisteringly sweltering day however made sure our visit was short, and after reaching the end of the jetty we doubled back hastily. As we headed back to Puteh we chanced upon an extremely cute mural of an elderly couple taking a wefie.

We spent the next two hours or so stuck in traffic as we attempted at first to have a drink at ZUS Coffee in Bukit Tinggi, then at Shah Alam. We failed to find parking at both branches, and we eventually ended up having a drink at a Petronas station.

We continued on and after another half an hour arrived at Guitarlicious to pick up a guitar that I had been eyeing for an awfully long time. With that we end our post for today and promise to bring you more in the days to come when we visit Brickfield for Deepavali (or Diwali), so stay tuned!
