Trip to Raub, Pahang
Today is the trip to Raub. We went in 2 cars. First car left in the morning. I am in the second car in the evening after attending Micheal's new office open house.
We reach Raub at 7:30pm and check in RestHouse in Raub town area.
but don't worry, its not. Indeed its a very nice place to stay.
After checked in, we head toward to Joanne's friend house for BBQ dinner.
Her friend's house is very nice and the area is very peaceful. It was already full with durian!
We were furnished with freshly plucked rambutan and mangostine. We also plucked their rambutan.. hehe
We had chicken wings, fresh water fish, fresh prawns, sweet potatoes, fresh mushroom and also 'otak-otak'. BBQ dinner was very yummy and fun.
The next morning, we had light breakfast at a 'kopitiam' in the town area nearby the RestHouse.
After breakfast; we head to the durian orchard. The journey was okay, no narrow way indeed. We reach the orchard about 10:30am and the farmer told us all the durian trees are durian kampung trees and were above 40 years old. They also mentioned that the best durian is from the trees that has grown for more than 100 years. Imagine that !!
We stop half way at Kampung Bukit Tinggi to makan. As usual, we will stop at 126 Restaurant. Food there was nice and reasonable. Took a picture of 'No Torn' durian.. (only realise when my daughter mentioned it)
