Pengerang Cycling Trip!

We went on a cycling trip down to Sungei Rengit, Pengerang for cheap and good food!

We started out from Changi Village, renting our bicycles that would be loaded on the ferry…

We shared the boat with a cute little boy and his family…

The jetty on Malaysia’s side has been upgraded and even has a marine tank for fishes…

Ahead of us was about 20km which would be covered by cycling…

In between, we stopped over for a break and phototaking…

Upon reaching our destination, we checked in to Millenium Hotel and proceeded to lunch. Then we cycled over to the Ostrich farm for a look-see.

I attempt to impersonate the ostrich’s expression, but failed at it.

Ostrich Chicks!

Miaozhen is mortified of feeding an ostrich.

I then gave ostrich satay a try. It’s pretty good, but not exactly cheap, at least when you buy and eat it on the spot.

Ostrich Satay is good, but not exactly cheap.

Satisfied, we split up into 2 groups. One went to look for Batu Layar and we returned to the hotel to rest.

Along the way, we stopped at an old couple’s place where they were preparing fruits to be sold on their push cart stall. At 30 sen per skewer/piece, the fruits were awfully cheap and good!

Check out the uncle’s biceps! Must be the daily wheelbarrow workout.

Dinner Time! Everyone was looking forward to this meal. We went to Good Luck Seafood Restaurant. No chance to take any photos of the food because everyone else would have finished it by the time I was done shooting…

We then stopped by the push cart stall of the old couple for more fruits and photos!

Miaozhen “kidnaps” somebody’s little boy, yet again…

We nearly cleared all the old couple’s fruit stall of their fresh fruits before we moved off, all thanks to their special sauce of dark soya sauce, sugar and chilli pad mixed together.

Miaozhen brought us to an old-skool confectionery with old-skool cakes…

…And Ying Huei modelled for us…

Then, the group returned to our hotel for the night. Old already, couldn’t stay up late like last time liao.

Breakfast! I was thinking about the very good made-on-the-spot chee cheong fun since the night before and I got really excited when I spotted it at the kopi tiam!


One of the awesomest chee cheong fun in the making…

The finished product, ready to eat!

After breakfast, shopping for food stuffs!

Happy with all the shopping, we finally checked out of the hotel and embarked on our journey back to the jetty. Unfortunately, the rain didn’t seem to be letting up, so we hired a lorry to bring us and our bikes back to the jetty.

Another group photo~

Then we got hold of Miaozhen's passport...

On the boat back…

I think we are up for more fun in the near future!

More photos available at my multiply.
