It's good to be back in Kota Bahru

The last time I visited Kota Bahru was to attend my colleague's wedding. Today is fourth visit to the capital city of Kelantan. This time is a business trip as my team and I are promoting the Special Relief Facility 2015, set up specifically to assist the businesses affected by the floods in some states in Malaysia to resume the operations of their businesses.

I took the 3pm flight from KLIA and alhamdulillah was safely arrived at Kota Bahru International Airport at about 4pm. We straight away took taxi to Hotel Perdana.

Since it's too early for us to take dinner, the four of us decided to go to Pasar Besar Siti Khadijah as some of us were very eager to add on to their batik collections. While they were busy bargaining for their batiks, I walked across to Kelantan Trade Centre, the Parkson Departmental Store to be exact.

Before we return to the hotel, we went to Yati Ayam Percik to try their infamous nasi kerabu, rendang itik serawa and of course, ayam percik.

At 8.15 pm, my ex-classmate, Faris called and picked me up for a get together with another ex-classmate, Ibrahim. It's good to catch up with these guy teachers. We promised to meet again in KL soon. May be to invite other ex-classmates for our "reunion" in the capital city of Malaysia.
