I am on the move again. Yesterday I took a fast ferry from Tioman Island to Mersing before taking a bus to Kuantan. Today I moved from Kuantan to Jerantut and tomorrow I hope to take a river trip by motorised canoe to Taman Negara National Park.
At the moment it is Ramadan, the month of fasting, for Muslims and as Malaysia is an Islamitic country this is widely observed here. For me this means that it’s not always easy to find a place that’s open for breakfast or lunch although there are always some. The payoff is in the evening when after the sun has set the Ramadan food markets open up and everybody sits around making up for the days fasting. They are friendly affairs and the food is normally excellent.
