Assalamualaikum and hi everyone. Today is a little bit raining but hope the sun come out and dry my wet cloths.

Malaysia was famous with food. Nasi Lemak, Apam Balik, Nasi Briyani and else. Kelantan, part of Malaysia also famous with variety of food. More cheaper than others. After Pahang, we go to Kelantan to visit the elders. Plus we need to find traditional food at there.

At the morning his aunt, Chik Long bring us to Kopitiam Kita. The special inside this stall is full with variety of Kelantanese rice such as Nasi Dagang, Nasi Kerabu, Nasi Berlauk, Nasi Kakwok, Nasi Impit and others. But what make this stall become famous in Malaysia is because their Roti Tibtab. Roti Tibtab is a bread that heated on charcoal with half boiled egg at the center of bread and put Kaya (coconut and egg mixtured) on every corner of bread. I will try make this bread at home.

It’s Long And Deep

Assalamualaikum and hello. You still with me read my blog and feel what I’m writing. Thank you so much. I really appreciate it. this kiss mmuuaaahhh mmmuuaaahhh mmmuuaaahhh for you.

Last week, me and hubby go to his parent’s house at Pahang. So at that time I asked him to bring me to Sungai Lembing at Pahang to see with my own eyes the place that I really want to go. That place was a great history part in Malaysia.

Sungai Lembing¬†is a¬†tin¬†mining town 42 km northwest of¬†Kuantan¬†in¬†Pahang,Malaysia.¬†Lembing¬†is¬†Malay¬†for spear, and “sungai” means river.

Until the 1970s, Sungai Lembing was a major producer of underground tin. Sungai Lembing town developed in the 1880s when the British set up the tin mining industry, although the history of mining in this area extends much further back. From 1891, the Pahang Consolidated Company Limited, (PCCL), which was under British control, had a 77-year lease to mine the area. PCCL managed the mine from 1906 until its liquidation in 1986 when world tin prices collapsed.  (From Wikipedia)

For now Sungai Lembing open for all visitor.

At first U will see museum of Sungai Lembing then take a small road to tin mines. But for me I will go to tin mines first before the museum. I really excited to go in there.

Every step must be careful. You can see a big hole that workers dig and we can’t to enter it. And also it have a short movie about that mines.
