Tenangnyaaaa! The last time i went to Dungun was during the ITM days and never returned during our visits to trengganu. may be because dah tak ada saudara mara lagi di sana. what beatutiful pictures! You ambik sendiri ka?

Takder la Kak Teh. Lift from here and there and credited the pixmen for them. My late mother's house dekat dengan UiTM campus and is within walking distance to the beach. Tapi being the pampered sods that we are, tak pernah jalan kaki.. always drive to the beach.

The main picture - of the rivermouth - on the right, under the heading dungun my hometown tu, taken by my son Joe. dia pandai tangkap gambaq..heheh

I first fell in love in Kuala Terengganu.

When the love gone sour, I stay in love with only Trengganu and its pristine beaches.

Was in Tg. Jara last year. Looking at this picture, it's definitely time to call the reservation again.

Puteri Kamaliah at-Tarawis said...

Awww... sooo sweet..:) You falling in love in Terengganu, Elviza, reminded me of the 60s song "Semalam Di Kuala Trengganu". the part that goes "disebalik tabir malam, sepasang mata bola merenung kepadaku, aduh sayang" makes my knees go weak..LOL

Beautiful pictures! This Teluk Bidara is not the same as Tanjung Bidara, yah? I suppose this is in T'ganu?

My sister in law used to work at UiTM Dungun, but I've never visited here there. We only met half way at Pasar Payang... She's now in KL but most likely, will be transfered back to Dungun next year. Nice beach, she said..

Sorry to hog your space here but I was smiling this morning reading this post again.

Our first date was at Pantai Batu Buruk since his house was just down at Jalan Pusara.

Way too innocent then, we didn't even hold hands. But the intensity, ah, to die for!

Heh.

Selamat berpuasa kak.

Besa jugak berjinak2 dgn orang tengganu tapi sat saja, (dan kerjit mata dua tiga kali saja). Tapi dia kata "susah aaa orang kedah cakap kasar sangat, susah nak faham". So, cancel laaa. :-)

Puteri Kamaliah at-Tarawis said...

Mrs N, Teluk Bidara is abt 5-min drive from my hse. it's a hidden cove, cantik teramat. that place was THE picnic/outing spot of my childhood.

Hehehe Elvira, that Batu Buruk beach memang fav spot for berdating, Terengganu-style la, no pegang tangan et al.. senyum2 & malu2 kucing only..:)

Lap, rugi la you never kawin mek tranu! or else la ni you sure bau budu berpanjangan..

Kak Teh said...

Sorry Kak Puteri, dah addicted pulak to leave comment at your blog.

Mintak tumpang lalu,

Laptop,

Ada orang Trengganu cakap lemah-lembut. Ada, sumpah! (ini sumpah betul, bukan berunsur politik) dan bila yang lemah-lembut tuh bercakap, aduh... cair luluh hati.

Tak caya tanya Kak Teh, sebab tu lah dia kawen dengan Awang Goneng :-P

Puteri Kamaliah at-Tarawis said...

hahahaha elviza..lebiuuuu!

Laptop said...

"mek jarroh"
"Awang Goneng"
Apa makna nya yang sebenaq?

Puteri Kamaliah at-Tarawis said...

Lap, Jarroh tu is a corruption of Zaharah, just like 'Kiyoh' is Trengganu-speak for Rokiah. Mek pulak is an honorific for east coast women. Awang Goneng simply means 'that mischievous imp' = budak nakal.

Puteri Kamaliah at-Tarawis said...

jangan hang pi jatuh cinta dengan mek jarroh pulok, k? dia tu bini awang goneng!
