Ma­hen's Di­ary

Time Out Malaysia Visitors Guide - - FOOD GLOSSARY -

Ev­ery­thing is over­sized along the salt trail. Pan­dan tow­ered six feet tall and there was a ba­nana tree with leaves up to 12 feet long. De­toured around a swarm of penyen­gat (stingers) along the trail.

As we got closer to Buayan, we were greeted by patches of paddy fields and river cross­ings. Reach­ing Buayan, we were ad­vised to make a de­tour around the school, so the stu­dents wouldn’t get dis­tracted dur­ing class!

Spent the evening in the river, look­ing up at sil­hou­ettes strad­dling the hang­ing bridge, against a glow­ing crim­son-azure sky. Sar­dine, salted fish and white rice never tasted so good.
