Sunset…

Still at Tanjung Sepat, our next stop was at the jetty

…where we were able to catch breathtaking views…

There are some seafood restaurants there like this one

TS - SR1

…but this one with a rather romantic name did not seem to be open for business that day…

…and there is a stall in the vicinity…

…selling all kinds of dried seafood products and also a shop…

My missus spent a long time in the latter buying things like ikan bilis (dried anchovies) and what not and for fear that she would use up all our baggage allowance even before we reached KL proper, I had to send my daughter over to get her and tell her that we would be going off without her, leaving her behind. LOL!!!

I was more interested in all the antique stuff on display all around the shop like this ancient radio and gramaphone…

…for instance, or this old sewing machine…

…and the charcoal irons beside it and also the ones here…

This is something like the traditional grinding stone that my grandma used to have…

TS - antiques  4

…for use when grinding stuff in large amounts, too much to be pounded using a batu lesung (mortar and pestle).

I bet my dear friend in New Zealand would love these…

…but I was more attracted to these endearing-looking pigs…

…in the too-lang – the rattan basket/cage used to transport those poor things to the slaughter house/abattior.

Frankly, I love touring around interesting places like this a lot more than going from shop to shop, one departmental store to another in the shopping malls and I would have liked to stick around longer to see if there was anything that I might have missed but it was already time for dinner…
