Perlis lies at the northern part of the west coast of peninsular Malaysia. Compare to other states, Perlis is the smallest state in Malaysia. At first I don't really sure any attractive places that we can visit there. I'd study in Perlis for three years and I know nothing about this state. The only thing that I remember is its long hot weather season (where I constantly seek for air conditioner room which include my lecturer's room, gossiping and listening to music rather than study...lol) and the rainy season which make me shivering all the day especially when I woke up in the morning. One thing more, Perlis is also popular with 'Harum Manis', a mango that has a sweet taste and damn expensive price.
The first place we go is Padang Besar, heaven for shoppers. This place has a lot of cheap goods sold in the market. I believe the actual price of most items here is cheaper than the seller try to sell, thus anyone who's good at bargaining the price will get the lowest price the sellers could offer. I swear this is the best place to anyone who brings a lot of money but for sure this is the worst and boring place for people who has no intention of buying anything. Most of merchants here come from Thailand and they speak in Kelantan dialect. I think they ate a lot of budu in the past LOL.
In front of outfit shop.
Next we go to Gua Kelam, the habitat place for Zubat and other cave dwelling pokemon. Sadly the area of Gua Kelam is being renovate, maybe because of the destruction by the great flood in Perlis last November. So we just fooling around the area, taking some pictures and headed to other place in frustrated mood.
Prove we're here!
Found a new pokemon-Meow
Half century tree
The last pit stop is among the popular place for couple hanging out and eating 'cucuk-cucuk'. It's situated several km from Kuala Perlis terminal ferry. Seriously...now I only know this place exist and what is 'cucuk2' taste like.
People in Perlis called this as 'cucuk'cucuk'. What a weird name....
In front of the stall is a beach. We had a pleasant evening while eating cucuk2 at the beach (actually it's sunny day during the time we got there)
