Merdeka 2009 Road trip - KL - Gerik - KB - KT - Gua Musang - K. Lipis - KL

I went on a wonderful road trip to the East Coast of Peninsula Malaysia. Wonderful sceneries along the way, and great food too :)

Anyway, it's a bit long overdue as it happened during Merdeka (National Day) 2009. More than 2 months ago :D

All images were taken with a Canon 40D and Tamron 17-50mm F2.8 lens, with Hoya Pro CPL sometimes.

Sungai Kelantan. We stayed in Pelangi Condo just by the same river.

Crystal Mosque in Terengganu...we found the shooting location only on the day we left. I'd have loved to shoot there the night before.

A palm oil factory in Sg Tong...somewhere between Kuala Terenggau and Kenyir Lake. Along T11 according to Wikimapia

Hours after leaving Kenyir, we could still see part of the lakes along highway T156, i believe. Or the new road that connects T156 and 1744 (not shown in wikimapia, yet)

You can see and feel the sadness's all in their eyes. They should be roaming free in the wild!

So there you go, a 4 days road trip which cost me only RM290, including the transportation, food, and hotel/motel/guest house :D


  1. I think the mosque would look better at night :)

  2. That's for sure Nick. But we didn't find the location until we were on our way back LOL.

    We went to the mosque the night before..and just tried to shoot what we can. I had no tripod so i waited for my friend to finish shooting.

    Finally, my turn. I mounted my camera on the tripod, turned of live view, exposure simulation etc etc...just seconds before i pressed the shutter release, all the mosque's light went off..............
