East Coast, Peninsular Malaysia, Continued

There was a Kingfisher and many small fish in the water. The bird should have eaten just enough, it never looked too fat to fly swiftly when I was trying to inch closer.

There were eagles soaring in the sky, and perching on top of trees or a tall pole. They always kept their distance, and continued to be so near yet so far away.

I tried to stare into their eyes, but they never stared into mine.


And then it was South China Sea that aroused some discussions among us: it shrunk East Malaysia that lies in front of us into an invisible dot.


We had reached Pantai Chempedak of Kuantan while talking to you, this was then the third day. Time traveled with us, but at a faster speed.

We should watch the breathtaking morning view of Panorama Hill, Sungai Lembing, tomorrow.

The birds add beauty to the wonderful scenery, even when you can't stare them in the eyes! Glad you had a wonderful trip..

The eagles are watching you from a distance. Managed to eat any nice chempedak in Pantai Chempedak? Bet you there is none haha.

You got some great pictures of the landscape and the birds. I'm sorry the birds wouldn't let you get closer.

Would be nice to visit such a place. The sea looks captivating and bet you were jazzed to see those Eagles. The birds in flight are nice..probably had one eye on you:)

This makes me feeling like travelling to east coast again. A supertelephoto lens if I can afford one would be a perfect companion...:-)

rainfield, what spectacular scenery! You're soaring with eagles now. I remember visiting Kuantan on one of my cruises!

Maybe our forefathers saw the same dot and landed in Peninsular Malaysia when they set sail from their homeland across the South China Sea to our negara ku. By the way, I also want some fried chempedak.

I love kingfishers! Someday I hope to show you a picture of ours, but they are very shy.

Great shots from a very beautiful place. Wonderful photo work.

I like the nutty type of moon cakes, none here, I don't buy the rest , like you say, cost like gold.

I hope you don't run over a chicken in East Coast, otherwise the whole kampung come after you.
