To Sitiawan and then Home

And so it came to pass that our vacation came to an end.

But before that, we had to depart from Nia’s house. There was a flurry of furtive but sad goodbyes.

We headed north towards Sitiawan using the old road we used to travel from KL. I thought I would try using the back roads via Kampung Kuantan. Ultimately we stopped at Sabak Bernam for lunch. Ain drove the rest of the way to Sitiawan.

The next day we went to Lumut. There might have been a fatal accident at the Lumut junction near the local Shell station.

The next morning, we had breakfast at the Padang Astaka of Sitiawan before we geared up and headed home.

All in all, it had been a great vacation even if it was quite a draining experience.
