Kuala Gandah and Bentong

Went to several places in this long day, and a really long day it is! The five very active person who joined this long long one day trip is: JoelThean, SuFung, SzeHui, JasonKim, and myself.

Let's see, firstly we fly all the to Pahang, with the pathetic driver of the day which is JoelThean.

Then we reached a place introduced by Jason's junior, to eat some they-said-it-is-very-nice ice kacang. Well by looking at the ice kacang:

Well it's not that bad larh, inside the ice kacang have so many funny stuffs like grape and some fruit that I can't really recall their names.

Well at that moment we don't have extra time to hunt for another place for lunch so we had our lunch at the ice kacang shop too (sounds weird right?), which is the nasi lemak that very upm-nasi-lemak-alike-but-with-extra-powerful-sambal.


And finally we reached the next destination, Kuala Gandah to watch elephant!

They have all size of elephant here, from the very young (left) to the very old (right). These elephants make really loud sounds! I'm quite sure that Jurassic Park makers took the elephant sound and modified into T-Rex sound, so you could imagine how loud is that.

A mini elephant museum here, giving some information about habitat of elephants and a big elephant skull, that looks like some alien mask to me...

Elephant feeding time!

Well, don't afraid they had your hand together with the food, they are gentle herbivore creature that have no interest with your arm ^^~ (Though my hand still shakes when feeding into their mouth, lol)

Spot the error, the person who makes this really need to take some extra tutorial on a better grammar.

By the way, there's also some people from the television shooting around. SzeHui said she know that the handsome host is from some-show-I-don't-know in ntv7 morning show. Anyone recognize him?

Elephant riding! Well don't ask me what happen to the picture quality, I wish to figure that out too. These are the photos from Jason taken in burst mode.

The elephant fur is seriously damn geli, and riding an elephant is unlike riding a cow or horse, it feels like you are going to fall down anytime as their skin and muscle are moving left and right when they are moving, as if you were riding a huge moving jelly that have spiky furs.


Joel that went bathing with the elephant, basically you ride on the elephant back, experience a elephant version of banana boat falling, and there you go, "bathing with elephant".

As usual larh, photo taking around.


So the elephants make up our day? Not yet, there are more place to go since we travel so far all the way to Pahang, therefore we also pay a visit to:

Which translated as: "Bentong Hot Water Pond".

Now, you may say: "Woah~ the place looks nice!" then I'll tell you: "Of course larh! I did some photoshop to this particular photo!" and I'm seriously not lying.

Realize that the water is greenish? This is because the whole pond is filled with MOSS! And the moss here ain't normal moss, is some moss that had been growing (and will keep growing) up to 10-30cm long!

We all know that the feeling of our skin having contact with moss is usually unpleasant, especially with such long and disgusting ones. Which make us ended up sitting at a less moss infected location, soak our body into the hot water, and that's it!

Another amazing Malaysia project that "nice in building, zero in maintainance", bravo!


Then for the dinner, we fly all the way to Sushie Station thought to have some fresh oyster, but the promotion has ended (as said by the lady boss there).

Then I thought: "Okayyy, at least have some salmon also not bad..." then finding their salmon sushie is as thin as paper makes me "Urh!" again. End up going Sushie Station we didn't really eat much sushie, but more on grilling chicken and fish.

The two big business man.

And the 2 pretty girls.

And that makes up the long long Friday, bought some "Nasi Buluh" when coming back form Pahang to share with family as supper. Sadly due to some delay, sis had already went back home so mom and me finished the whole box of rice. Aw~
