Shopping For Seafood And Lunch At Kuala Sepetang.

From the Charcoal Factory, we drove to Kuala Sepetang fishing town. There we were encouraged to go for a boat ride but we declined. During this 5 days public holidays plus the school holidays, this little fishing town became a busy town filled with mostly local visitors. I took some snapshots of fishing boats.

Shoppers looking for both fresh and dried seafood.

Just pick whatever dried seafood you want to buy.

 Everything looks fresh and we bought a few packets of dried seafood e.g. dried shrimps & salted fish.

 This time, we decided to try this restaurant with a big eagle on the roof!

For lunch, we had fragrant coconut water, oyster omelette and curry prawn bread. Everyone enjoyed the curry prawn bread and we finished the whole thing.

We also had steamed fish, deep fried cuttlefish and 1 green vegetable. Besides the curry prawn bread, the rest of the dishes were not up to our expectation and the fish was overcooked. The lunch costs RM 175.30 inclusive of rice and 6 % GST.

After lunch, we stopped at the ground floor stall to buy some prawn crackers to snack on the drive home. I found out from the seller that this old worn out motorcycle is still in use and in very good shape.

Driving through the town, we passed by this Voluntary Fire Association with its gate opened.

Linking to Good Fences.

And now I want to urgently remind you, dear friends,

of the old rule God gave us right from the beginning,

that Christians should love one another.

  1. I think it must be due to the crowd... next time go again on an off peak day!

    1. Actually, the restaurant not crowded with just a few tables occupied. The one we went to on our first trip was much better. But must give credit for their delicious curry prawn bread even though the others were not to our expectation.

  17. Olá, adoro tudo que envolve mar e pesca, os portos de mar são maravilhosos para visitar, foi pena não aceitar o convite para ir no barco de pesca, é um boa oportunidade para estar no mar e meio dos pescadores, as fotos são belas.
    Feliz fim de semana,

  19. Your first picture is my favorite, it is lovely! The eagle is very cool! His wings form the rest of the roof! So do you get seasick, or cannot swim?

    1. I took pictures of the boats. We didn't go on the boat tour as someone was afraid of water! That someone is not me, so no chance to get seasick. Lol!

  22. The world is a small place, but sometimes I am reminded just how huge it is too. Look at all these people with all their places to go, and here I am on the other side of the world.
