Some interesting stuff from the trip.

The local way to package your takeaway tea. The straw is tied together with a bit of raffia string to your plastic packet drink. All three components are separate - this is different from what's commonly used in Singapore where the plastic bag has handles attached.

Take everything apart and with a bit of skill, tie the raffia to a corner of the plastic bag, insert straw and drink!

Freshly made sugar-covered doughnuts at a road-side stall.

We went for the goreng pisang (fried bananas) instead - there are 4 different types of bananas, and a whole bag for just SGD2!


In nearby Temerloh town, we buy sewing equipment from a mad haberdashery shop filled chock-a-block wall-to-wall with all types of ribbons, trims, baskets.... I think the purple display is used for holding wedding rings.



HAND-PAINTED Ray Ban sunglasses over bamboo blinds in front of an optician shop in Temerloh.



Modern street graffiti in Temerloh. Can anyone translate them for me please?
