From Kuala Lumpur to Gua Musang and to Kota Bharu. I took the opportunity to explore a place where I have never set my foot on. Gua Musang sounds very low key to some. Yes indeed. Not knowing what to expect, I don’t want to put myself in dire of getting the right images. But I hoped that the little pieces will come into place. I spent nearly 3 days in Gua Musang and was lucky enough to see a dikir barat performed by the locals. Being tied up with work in the morning, I have less time to explore Gua Musang town. I am sure there are a lot of interesting places for great photo opportunities. Here are some of the ordinary.
I was told that this pakcik is an Imam of the nearby surau. Pak Imam has been selling roti canai for more than 30 years. I believed so, because the roti was great! The best in Gua Musang!!
From Gua Musang, I went further up to Kota Bharu. It has been almost 20 years since the last time I came here. I started the day early, just few minutes before 7. Just a few steps outside of the hotel, I was greeted with this WV Beetle nicely parked along the road. What a great way to start the day!

To some these photos may not mean anything. It’s a normal day to day happening around them. I am pretty sure that some may say that they can capture the same thing as well. If you do, please start doing so and you will appreciate it one day. Get back to reality. This is life. This is what we are. I spent almost 8 hours walking around Kota Bharu. The images, I hope some of you will understand. It’s not about getting every photo to be technically correct. Put that aside for a while. Dig into the ordinary and see life.
