Puncak Titiwangsa to Betong...

"I have found that there ain't no surer way to find out whether you like people or hate them than to travel with them..." - Mark Twain

(Mun, Chon, Yati, Azim, Hakim, Roslan and Din)

Last Saturday we went for a ride with 7 other bikers to Betong, a border town of Thailand and took the Gua Musang route and crossed the Main Range via the East West Highway from Jeli, Kelantan to Gerik, Perak.

Motorists using the East-West Highway would definitely stop at the peak of Banjaran Titiwngsa for its beautiful view of the mountainous surroundings. With a height of about 2.100 meters above sea level, the R&R area is increasingly a popular stop for motorists to take a break from the long-haul riding/driving for a breath of cool fresh air and a cup of hot coffee.

Total mileage: 950 km
Route taken: KL - Raub - Sg Koyan - Gua Musang - Jeli - East West Highway - Grik - Pengkalan Hulu - Betong - Pengkalan Hulu - Grik - North/South Highway - KL
Riders gang: Mus, Mun, Din, Yati, Chon, Azim, Rozlan and Hakim

Travel Reflection: Betong (III), Thailand

Being a mother...

"I've made a lot of mistakes in the past, but being a mother was not one of them..." 
(3 generations of first-born girls...)

A mother's love is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
it never fails or falters,
even though the heart is breaking…

Tonight we celebrated Mother's Day at Absolute Thai and had our favorite dishes of sea-food tomyam, pandan chicken and kerabu manggo. And I bought me a compact Canon Ixus to replace the one that was broken.
