The trip to Perlis excited me to no end. It was so mesmerizing to see fields as far as the eyes can see on either side of the road. Though I’ve seen lowland rice paddies that stretch along the highway, this was a different class of its own. The shutter release button was continually pressed while the car zoomed by. And as I was still staring out there in the great awesomeness, the landscape gradually changed into limestone hills arranged majestically on the rolling terrain.
My host, with the help of her sister, gave me a taste of how it feels being in two places at the same time. It was my sixth day, and we road tripped Jitra to Padang Besar, in Perlis. The town of Padang Besar is so near Thailand, you’d sometimes wonder what country you are in, due to these reasons:
“I Heart Thailand” Shirts (in Malaysia)
Thai plate numbers in Malaysia
After eye shopping, we ended the day with a visit to the Al-Hussain Floating Mosque. Amazing!
As well as a blog post about the mosque:
The Al-Hussain Floating Mosque is said to be built with about RM12 million. Whoa!
Deym! It would be back to KL the next day! See you later, Perlis!
